2016 Gift Guide - For The Traveler

Those who know me know I absolutely adore traveling. In fact, this was the first year of my life that I didn't take an international trip. Obviously due to my pregnancy/bed rest/Dillon's birth, I took this year off, but once Dillon has grown out of the preemie phase we definitely plan on taking him on trips with us. For today's gift guide, I wanted to share items that are essential (for me, anyway) for travel. Whether it be domestic or international, these are things that make any trip a little easier and a lot more enjoyable.

Mock Turtleneck

I LOVE this sweater. I posted it on Instagram and you all seemed to love it, too! The best part about it is the price. It's so affordable but looks so expensive, especially when paired with chic accessories. I think this look is perfect for this time of year. It's polished but casual and the subtle print mixing keeps it interesting. This sweater would also look equally adorable with skinny jeans and boots or boyfriend jeans and lace up heels. How would you style it?!

Sweater: Target // Top: Nordstrom // Leggings: Nordstrom // Flats: Yosi Samra [also love these under $40] // Bag: Prada // Sunnies: here // Watch: Michael Kors

Christmas Cheer with CaseApp + *GIVEAWAY*

One of the things I love to give as a gift is a cute phone case. For both guys and girls, cases are an adorable gift you can give to reflect your loved one's personal style. The site I love to order from is CaseApp. I have collaborated with them in the past and I love how their model lets you customize either a phone case or laptop skin. They have ready-to-order options if you're not creative and don't want to design your own, but you can customize a case with whatever print or text you want! Monogramming a case would be a super cute touch! I opted for this festive case for the holiday season. I love how it has a graphic vibe and is super bright and cheerful!

CaseApp is offering 20% off your order with code NINESTO5XMAS20 and they are kind enough to give not one but TWO of my readers the chance to win your own case! Enter using the rafflecopter below. Winner will be announced on my Instagram on Monday, 12/12. Good luck!

My Holiday Wish List with Century 21

I am the type of person who absolutely loves giving gifts. I will go out of my way to find an occasion to give a gift to someone I love. However, when it comes to asking for gifts, I'm terrible. I have no problem online shopping for myself what seems like every single day, but when someone asks me what I want for Christmas, I immediately draw a blank. For that reason, I absolutely love one-stop-shop retailers. I have the highest chance of finding things I love when there are multiple departments to choose from. While I love shopping at the classics like Nordstrom and Nieman Marcus, sometimes it's nice to branch out and shop somewhere that everyone doesn't frequent. Who else hates having the same stuff as everyone else?! Enter Century 21. It's a new-to-me retailer that has tons of holiday gift ideas from brands I already love. They have an amazing selection of bags, shoes, and beauty. They even have stuff for the guys and for the kids! Below I'm rounding up some of my favorite things from the site that I would love to receive (and give!) this holiday season. Leave me a comment on what catches your eye from Century 21!

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9

This post is sponsored by Century 21. Thanks for supporting the retailers that support Nines to 5!

Friday Finds


Friday, we meet again! My parents finally left on Tuesday so it's been me and the little guy since then! He had a bit of a rough start to the week but is feeling better now. This mama even got out for a girls night! I plan to spend the weekend with my little family and I could not be more excited! Below is what I've loved this week. Enjoy!


These will be my next shoe purchase!

This is the perfect addition to any arm party, and it's on sale!

Love the colors on this. So festive and cheery!


I thought my sweet tooth I acquired during pregnancy would go away post-birth, but surprise, it hasn't! Definitely will be making these soon.

This is so true.

2016 Gift Guide - For The Littles

Now that I'm a mom and I have more friends having kids, let alone our nieces and nephews, shopping for babies around the holidays is definitely on the brain. I love to give everything from clothes to toys to things that make the parents' lives a little easier. I've rounded up some things that I, as a mom, would love to receive, which makes me think other moms (and dads!) would love them, too. What do you like to give the littles in your life?!
