Last-Minute Christmas: Pajamas from The Children’s Place

When do you open your Christmas gifts? At our house, we’ve settled into a tradition of opening one gift on Christmas Eve and saving all the rest for the next morning. Since this wasn’t how either my husband or I did it growing up, I’m not sure how we came up with this, but I love it. And for the past few years that Christmas Eve present has been one very specific item– pajamas.

Taking the time to wash everyone’s pajamas before I wrap them means we can wake up Christmas morning wearing our new jammies, so we’re ready for photos as we leisurely (ha!) unwrap our remaining presents.

If you’re looking for cute pajamas for your kids, I highly recommend The Children’s Place. My little guy exclusively wears TCP pajamas, and I’ve found them to be durable, warm, and comfy. Plus, with almost every option under $20 (and some even less than $15 or $10), they make an easy add-on gift. Check out a few options below:


Toddler Girls’


Toddler Boys’


Since there are so many Children’s Place locations, you should be able to find adorable pajamas near you. If– like me –however, you are still scrambling and need something delivered directly to you, Children’ is offering guaranteed Christmas delivery for all orders placed by 11 AM ET on 12/23! Even better- orders under $75 ship for just $5, and orders over $75 ship for FREE.

Wild Times

In keeping with my “I Love All Things Animal Print” philosophy, check out these new watches from Timex:


There is something so reassuring about a Timex watch.  They last FOREVER, are easy to repair if the battery dies or the band needs replacing, and they are classically elegant.  I love the easy to read dial on these styles.  Styled with some simple bangles and bracelets, you have a statement look that is chic and goes from the playground to the office to a night on the town.  The picture below makes me want to buy one of these watches and start pulling together outfits!

These Timex watches cost around $60 each and are available at most major retailers, and on line at Piperlime.   One more word about animal prints and animals…consider adopting an animal in need this winter.  Local shelters have so many wonderful creatures that need good homes, so back up your fashion sense with some good old fashioned love and bring the wild into your home!  You’ll be glad you did…

Shoes To Inspire A Spree

Have you reached that point in your holiday shopping where you just can’t stand it any more?  The practical stuff, the gifts for weird family members, the stocking stuffers…sometimes I just get a brain cramp from it all.  Generally, I love shopping, and I usually subscribe to the “one for you, two for me” rule when I’m on a gift buying mission, but there is SO much pressure attached to holiday shopping that I put it off to the last possible minute and then end up wishing that I had been more organized and thoughtful, and well,  you know where this is going…

However…I came across these shoes, and they are so radically outrageous and wonderful that I am actually INSPIRED to grab my wallet and finally find the perfect gift for everyone on my list:

Christian Louboutin Alex Pump $4,995

Check out the glittery heel...


Now if only I could afford these shoes I’d be all set!
