Valentine’s Day Gift Guide



It’s hard to believe, but February is just around the corner, which means that it is time for you to start shopping for your special someone. 

At Paula & Chlo, we want to make it easy for you to find the perfect gift for whomever is on your gift list, so we created a Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for you to find the best present to show your favorite person how much you love them. 

… For your girlfriend

If this is the first or second Valentine’s Day with your special lady, there is no better gift than a necklace. It’s a great go-to: she probably doesn’t have any sentimental jewelry from you yet, and this is a great occasion to get her something she really wants. 

valentine's day gift guide

We love this necklace that really spells out how you feel for her– the l-o-v-e necklace from Lisa Freede in a gorgeous font that is simple and classic. It’s the perfect piece for dressing up for date night or dressing down for everyday use!

… for your wife

If you are looking for a quality piece that can be used for years and passed down the family, you have to invest in pieces that are going to withstand time.

A perfect investment piece is the Margo Morrison Freshwater Pearl Dangle Lariat necklace. It’s a classic freshwater pearl and gold necklace that is built to be worn for generations. 

… for your Mom

We love spoiling our mom for all holidays, but on a day that’s dedicated love, we definitely want to remind her how much we care about her. Shopping for mom is tricky– we don’t want to get her something she already has, but we want to get her something she really wants. 

I generally buy my mom something she would never buy for herself because she would think it’s too much– but I know she is worth it!


This Valentine’s Day, I am gifting my mom this 360 Cashmere georgie fring wrap scarf. It’s the perfect luxury item for mom. I know she will love the soft material and sweet color, and I can’t wait to see all the ways she wears it!

… for your bestie

Who says you need to have a significant other to have fun this Valentine’s Day? Some of my favorite Valentine’s Day memories are with my friends– baking red velvet cupcakes, watching old rom-coms and just treating ourselves to a fun evening out. 

Gifting simple jewelry is always so fun. We love swapping pairs of earrings or bangles between all of my friends. This year, I am gifting these super cute studs from Kendra Scott. 


These sweet Ophelia stud earrings are just the piece for this year’s exchange. They sparkle in all different shades and are the cutest shape. We love them and can’t wait to borrow them!

Have you been dreaming of a weekend getaways like we have? Ever since we got Florabella back in stock last week, we have been so excited to plan our next trip.

While we decide on a destination, we are busy buying all of the weekend getaway essentials that we can use no matter where on the globe we decide to land.

These leggings are fashionable while still being comfortable. They are the perfect travel legging because they won’t lose their shape for a weekend of travel. Plus, they have tummy tuck control so you can overindulge… you’re on vacation!

2. Cashmere topper

Minnie Rose is the perfect piece to wear for a long afternoon on the train or bus. This piece is warm and snuggly to wear while traveling, but lightweight enough to not feel weighed down by bulk. (Plus, it’s on sale right now– you have to snag it up right away!

3. Cashmere sweater

Just like the topper, cashmere sweaters are timeless and fashionable, while also being super functional. Wear this piece from event to event on your weekend with different accessories and you will never not be the best dressed there! This piece is so versatile, it’s a weekend getaway essential.

4. Miracle dress


You guys know we LOVE this dress. How could we not? It’s the perfect little black dress. It’s an elevated essential that you need. The fabric is forgiving and won’t wrinkle– perfect for quickly throwing into a bag for a spur of the moment trip! Plus, it’s one size fits all, so you can lend to all your girlfriends over the weekend!

5. Sondra Roberts Nylon Puffer Toe


This is the perfect weekender tote. Nice and light, you can throw all the essentials in here and it’s so cute that you can confidently tote it about the city.


6. Cashmere Sleep Mask


This is a travel essential. This White + Warren travel mask is gorgeous and so soft that you won’t ever want to take it off. We love it for quick train ride naps!

We love all of these weekend getaway essentials. What are you packing in your bag?

New Year, New Designers: Florabella



We don’t know about you, but these last two weeks back at work have been so exhausting. Not having a holiday break to look towards excitedly makes everything seem a little more depressing and dull.

There have been a few comforts—we have a long weekend, and this week has been unseasonably warm for January in New York.

But we can’t help it: we need to plan a vacation. We have been eyeing thoses tropical flight deals like it’s our job. We are thinking a weekend in Bermuda in February.

And there’s one designer we are definitely packing in our luggage: Florabella.

Florabella is another one of the designers that we are loving in our closets as we start the New Year, and shopping tropically helps alleviate the winter blues.

Florabella is a boutique designer that creates stylish beachware for women of all ages who have the tropical bug. The brand is sophisticated and chic, but still has old-school undertones that make their products timeless.

Florabella is known especially for their hats. And (oh my gosh) they have the cutest sunhats we have seen.

One of our favorites is the Melina Wide Sun Hat in Storm Silver. This hat is so chic. It begs to be worn in the Keys with a brightly colored sundress. The metallic sheen is the perfect complement to loud pinks and yellows, and can be dressed up or down.


If your vibe is more girl-next-door, we love the Florabella Sun Hat in Natural Silver. This is the quintessential sunhat. There is no better accessory for the beach than this—it provides the coverage you need while being a neutral-enough statement perfect for your favorite bathing suit or sundress.


But Florabella’s hats aren’t the only perfect part of the designer. Her kaftans embody the chic ease you want for a weekend at the beach.

We had to get the Florabella Montage Short Kaftan in White. It’s simple and elegant. The lace details are sweet and the cotton gauze is so airy and light! It’s our go-to for a neutral coverup that looks perfect in every tropical occasion.


New Year, New Designers… Welcome Alice D!

We can’t believe the big night is just over a week away—we still are writing 2015 on all our Christmas cards!

2. Kendra Scott Tima Earrings


These dainty pieces are exactly the ones we want when we aren’t feeling chandeliers. These are artfully designed and simply made so that you are able to wear them from one event to another without the need to reapply. Something else we love about these earrings is how lovely they show up in photographs! You will always be Instagram-ready in these cute studs. 

3. Kendra Scott Anastasia Necklace


Obviously, this necklace screams New Year’s Eve. With the gorgeous quartz stones over the delicate gold chain, this is the perfect necklace to complement your sparkly dress (and personality!). We love the back part of the necklace too– such great detailing for an open back dress!

4. Kendra Scott Phara Necklace in Gold

Holiday gift guide: The Travelista


christmas shopping guide

Happy shopping season, fashionistas!

This has been the biggest year for online holiday shopping EVER, and we are so thrilled that you have chosen Paula and Chlo to find the perfect gift for your loved ones.

Last week, we highlighted some of the absolute best gifts for your mom, and today we want to show you some of what we think are the best gifts for your travel-loving friends.

Today we have some of the best gifts for the stylish travelista in your life.

It would be wrong to start any holiday list without the White + Warren Travel Wrap. You love, I love it, a closet isn’t complete without it! This is what your travel-loving friend needs to keep herself protected from too-cool plane rides or chilly city exploration evenings. Plus, it comes in so many colors, so you can find the one your friend will love!


When it comes to travel bags, you can’t go wrong with gifting the Sondra Roberts Puffer bag. It’s so lightweight that your travelista won’t hurt herself as she treks from city to city on a post-grad trip to Europe. Plus, because it’s Sondra Roberts, it’s high-quality and durable (like everything at Paula & Chlo!).


If your friend is addicted to taking overnight buses or long flights to get about the world, she needs something to help her catch her zzz’s. For those wanderlust-filled ladies, she absolutely needs the White + Warren travel sleep mask! Done in the signature cashmere that makes White + Warren absolute luxury, the silk lining will make her feel like she’s sleeping on a luxurious mattress, instead of cramped in coach!


For your friend who loves getting her passport stamped, she needs something to protect it! The Rebecca Minkoff Passport Holder in cobalt blue is so darling and functional, she just has to have it. It comes in a variety of colors, so pick the one that you feel like matches her travel vibe!


For your friend who spends her winter dreaming of tropical getaways, you should give her the piece of clothing that is ready to take on whatever spur of the moment trip she thinks of. A kaftan is perfect to travel with because it can be worn 3 ways and can be easily throw into a suitcase for a weekend’s worth of outfit versatility!


Don’t forget that all packages from Paula & Chlo always come with our signature luxury wrapping and purple bows (plus a little extra surprise, too!)!

Happy shopping! Have you gotten a good start on your gifting?
