Happy Monday!  I’m coming off of a wonderful weekend.  My girlfriends surprised me with a baby shower and I’m feeling so loved.  Surprises are the best, and I was totally blindsided!  I hope you all had a great weekend too.

So back to our Tis The Season roundups.  I decided to put together a little something for the men, because without a doubt we want them to look good too!  November and December are always slam packed with social get togethers (yay!), so just in case the man in your life needs a few updates….  {most do, right?}  Oh, and I tried to keep things inexpensive here because we all know we have to save money for our own wardrobes!

J.Crew Shawl Sweater: Comfortable, stylish, and my bet is he’d live in this.
Gap Marled Hat: Love this and it’s really inexpensive.
J.Crew Flannel Tie: For the dressier occasions. This is my favorite tie I’ve seen this season.
J.Crew Gingham Shirt: Josh bought this shirt in 3 different colors and I LOVE them all.
J.Crew Flannel Plaid Shirt: Plaids are big this season, & I love these colors. Great for layering too.
J.Crew Vintage Cord: Again, Josh has these and they’re HOT.
Clark’s Desert Boots:  Why do so many guys wear shoes til they have holes? These are fab.
Tartan Bow Tie: Luckily, my husband loves bow ties b/c I don’t think anything beats them!
Gap Cardigan: Gorgeous, well priced sweater!
J.Crew Chambray Shirt: A must have in any man’s closet.  Josh wears his all the time.
Bowling Grace Shoes: Love this wintery take on the boat shoe.
J.Crew Tweet Sportcoat: Sportcoats are THE EASIEST and BEST way to take it up a notch.
And An Honorable Mention:

J.Crew Velvet Ludlow Sportcoat: Again, sport coats are necessary, and this gorgeous velvet one is perfect for the holiday season.  Josh’s velvet sportcoat is my favorite one he has.
