Gift Guide: Bright, Bold and Tailored

Posted by



Happy Sunday, Friends! It’s time for another gift guide and today I’m bringing you a few of my favorite things in perfect Tobi style.

Yes, those of you who read my blog regularly know all about my style: Bright, Bold, and Tailored. So I think it’s only fitting that I create a gift guide with some of my favorite things that align with my love of color, pattern and classic design motifs. Any one of these gorgeous things would be a perfect gift in my opinion, so Santa if you’re listening…(wink, wink)!

Happy Shopping!

And may your Holiday Season be Merry and Bright, Bold and Tailored!







  1. J. Crew “Double-cloth” Day Coat–This classic wool coat is tailored and feminine and oh so flattering. Lined with Thinsulate this beauty will keep you warm while you are looking great!
  2. Smeg 2-slice Blue Toaster–Who wouldn’t want Toast for Breakfast if you owned this Icy Blue little number? It just happens to be the perfect color for my soon to be completed Kitchen remodel. Maybe I should put this on my list!
  3. Greenwich Grove Teapot–Chamomile is my favorite flavor of Tea and it would be so much sweeter if poured from this gorgeous green Teapot. If you have Tea-drinkers in your life, I bet they would love this cutie wrapped and under the Tree this year.

  9. Cedar and Roses Painting–This beautiful oil on canvas painting is by Joanna Posey for Serena and Lily. Maybe it speaks to me because of it’s palette or maybe because Joanna studied Painting at my Alma Matter, either way, I love it and I think those bright, bold and tailored people in your life will love it too.
  10. Brass Elephant Box–My daughter has a thing for Elephants and cast in solid Brass, this charming box by Jonathan Adler makes me have a thing for them too. Gift this polished pretty to the animal-lovers on your list and they will have a perfect perch for their beautiful baubles and tiny trinkets.

As if the design of the Worthington Chair wasn’t lovely enough, in this Grass Green upholstery, it’s to die for. So if you want your loved ones to swoon over their Christmas gift, buy them this stunning chair or a set of them. (Honey, are you listening?)
  12. Greek Key Zebra Mug–Sugar? Creamer? Greek key? I will take my coffee with all three if it’s served in this fun and graphic zebra mug.

Fabulous Friday Finds…Father’s Day

Posted by

Father’s Day is just around the corner, so this weekend is the perfect opportunity to spend a little time searching for that perfect gift that says “Thanks Dad!”

As I think of all the things my father taught me, I’m reminded of how special and unique he is — just like your dad! That’s why I thought it might be fun to put together a list of the perfect gifts for every dad — no matter what their personality happens to be. Does one of these remind you of your dad?

For the techy dad…

An iPad is an obvious choice! If he already has this ultimate gadget, give him an iTunes gift card and he can download new apps and music.

For the dad who loves to hit the links…

Preloaded with 27,000 courses, the Garmin Approach S3 is a must-have for any dad who likes to tee up fun on the golf course. It displays yardage and evens lets them place pins. I know my husband would love this one!!

For the dad who’s mad about plaid…

Burberry is always in good taste, and what dad wouldn’t love to receive this checked belt?

For the sporty dad…

I love these striped board shorts from Vineyard Vines. They remind me of one of my favorite color combos — navy & pool!

For the dad who’s all about style…

Ok, maybe he loves “Top Gun” too… These new release Liteforce Aviator Ray-Bans are super styling, don’t you think?

Hope these ideas give you a jumpstart on the hunt for the perfect gift for dad!!

xo, Tobi
