OMG, these sales. I'm so over it but somehow feel the need to share them anyway. First of all, I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. I was at the beach in North Carolina with my mom and my brother and it was really, really lovely. I did do some online shopping on Friday and may continue to do a bit today, so I wanted to share everything I've ordered so far + a few more things I'm considering ordering. 

I want to preface this by saying that I don't reeeally plan to keep everything I ordered; I got a little excited, had a couple of glasses of wine, and the sales got to me. Whatever!

Hiii! Hope everyone had a great weekend. I was surprisingly busy, with a few celebratory dinners with friends & just bopping around the city, as usual. Yesterday I share another Gift Guide,  for the girl who has everything, it's such a fun one. I also shared a VLOG!!! My first NYC vlog in almost exactly a year. Hope you enjoy it if you check it out!

Anyway, today is a busy day for me. I have to pop into the office for work a bit this morning, and then I leave tonight for Thanksgiving, and on top of that, so many of the Cyber Week/Black Friday sales have already begun that I want to share!

I am surprised by how many great sales there are this year, and the fact that they've already started! I decided to round up a few of my favorites here, and plan to update this post and update you, throughout the week.

Gift Guide: The Girl Who Has Everything

Gift Guide: The Girl Who Has Everything - Fran Acciardo

Back again with another gift guide! I absolutely love doing the "Girl Who Has Everything" gift guide. I have been doing this one every single year for like 5 years now, and it's always just such a fun, girly, luxurious mix of pieces that are sure to spark joy for the girly-girl in your life who just... has it all!

Hope you enjoy!

Gift Guide: Boyfriend's Parents / In Laws

Gift Guide: Boyfriend's Parents / In Laws

When I did a question box on my IG asking for gift guide requests, the second most requested after "boyfriend gift guide," was a gift guide for the boyfriend's parents or in-laws! I published the Boyfriend gift guide last week, and I am excited to share the parents/in-laws one today. Joe and I worked on this together so it's been approved by a real boyfriend lol.

Hopefully, this gives you a little inspiration! Feel free to drop in the comments anything else you'd recommend or have gifted in the past.

Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas Fran Acciardo Under $100

Happy Monday! I can't believe Thanksgiving is already NEXT WEEK! I am very excited about Thanksgiving this year because I am heading down to Oak Island, North Carolina with my mom and brother. My mom lives in Raleigh now but rented a beach house for the Holiday and I am so looking forward to spending Thanksgiving on the beach in warmer fall weather.

If you're like me and kind of forgot about Thanksgiving until now, I rounded up quite a few pieces and ideas for Thanksgiving outfits for today's post. I feel like I've just been finding the cutest things lately and I am so excited to share these adorable looks for the late fall / early holiday season.

Happy Friday from Dallas! I am here visiting Joe for the week and I'm so excited for today because we are taking the day off work to go get massages and tonight go to a wine bar he's been wanting to try!

1. This week I published quite a bit of content on the blog! In case you missed it, the gift guides have begun, and so far I've shared:

My personal wish list gift guide

My favorite things gift guide

Boyfriend gift guide

Up next will be the in-laws/boyfriend's parents' gift guide! I will probably post it on Monday, followed by the Girl Who Has Everything gift guide, which is my annual favorite.

2. When I was in Kansas City a couple of months ago, I purchased this candle from a local boutique. It is the most incredible holiday scent, and the brand is equally wonderful; 5% of every purchase funds Anti-Trafficking efforts in the US. Would highly recommend the candle and supporting this small business!

  You can also purchase the candle on Amazon here!

3. I finished reading The Paris Apartment this week and loved it!! Such a page-turner... it's a bit of a spooky thriller and I was so impressed with all of the twists & turns.

Up next I plan to read Nora Goes Off Script!

Gift Guide: Boyfriend

Gift Guide: Boyfriend

I am so excited about today's gift guide! Coming up with a gift idea for a boyfriend is not usually very easy, and this came highly requested, so I'm excited to share this today. I enlisted my boyfriend Joe's help to create this gift guide for all of you and I think there are so many great ideas included! 

This is pretty much a fool-proof guide considering most items are things I think any boy would like. I took into account my boyfriend's interests and tastes obviously, but also my brother and some of guy friends to make sure this was well-rounded enough that you could find something for any type of guy. 

Hope this helps! Let's get into it:

Gift Guide: My Favorite Things

Fran Acciardo Gift Guide: My Favorite Things

Back again today with another gift guide! On Monday I shared 
my personal wish list, and today I'm excited to share a curated round-up of my favorite gifts I've received over the past few years. 

This gift guide includes a selection of some of my favorite gifts I've personally received as well as simply things I own, love, and think would make for great gifts.

Gift Guide: My Personal Wish List

Fran Acciardo Gift Guide: My Personal Wish List

Welcome to the first gift guide of 2022! Today we are kicking things off with a highly-requested gift guide: my personal wish list.

As I get older, I don't really ask for Christmas gifts anymore, but I'd be lying if I said there aren't a few things I'd love to receive. A few of these things are practical (desperately need a nice vacuum), a few are impractical (Chanel ballet flats are unlikely to appear under the tree), and a few would just be nice to have (my current AirPods are on the fringe). 

Let's dive in, shall we?!

This Week's Top 10

Fran Acciardo This Week's Top 10

Hello and happy Friday!! I am excited for this weekend because I have no plans for the first time in what feels like forever. I'm hoping to spend the weekend reading, working on gift guides, and maybe visiting Central Park at some point to see the foliage. I leave for Dallas on Tuesday night to see Joe so I'll also have to pack & clean my apartment at some point as well.

1. My favorite black boots are 30% off with code FRIENDS + an extra 20% off when you add to cart! Such a great deal; the sale ends on Sunday so snag them while you can! 

2. Have you downloaded the November desktop and iPhone wallpapers yet? Find the mood boards & screensavers here!

3. ICYMI: yesterday I shared a big roundup of fabulous pieces for fall and Thanksgiving outfits, all under $100, in a blog post here.

Fall Finds Under $100

Fall Finds Under $100 Fran Acciardo Shopping

I planned to share the first Gift Guide today, but I got so distracted while online shopping this morning that I'm back again with another fall finds post. I know this is my third one (first here and second here), but I couldn't believe how many fabulous things I was finding for under $100 (and most under $50!) so I had to share. Maybe we'll start the Gift Guides next week, I wasn't ready yet anyway, haha. (but thank you to everyone who shared Gift Guide requests & ideas on my IG story yesterday - SO helpful, so many great ideas that I'll definitely be using to create this year's assortment!)

October Favorites


October is always a favorite month for me. This October, I really tried to soak in a lot of my favorite fall things. I baked, had lots of pumpkin coffees, lit my fall candles, saw the Halloween decor, and even went out of the city this past weekend so I could wear cable knits and drive around listening to Folklore while enjoying the fall foliage. It was a really lovely month, mostly relaxing, with a bit of fun mixed in (I visited my besties in Chicago one weekend!). The weather was all over the place, but I always kind of love that. I'm looking forward to the Holidays coming up quickly, but before we get into all that, let's dive into my October favorites!

November Moodboard (Desktop & iPhone Wallpaper)

Happy November! I hope you all had a fun Halloween yesterday and this past weekend. I had the loveliest weekend away from the city at my aunt's house on Long Island and skipped Halloweekend this year for the fall foliage, farm stands, and Sancerre on a velvet couch. Definitely more my vibe, haha, but I did share a couple of tik tok's in my costume yesterday - check them out here if you missed it!

I hope you love this month's mood board as much as I do. Please tag me on IG if you download the new mood board- I absolutely love to see the board on your screens!!
