Sweater & Vest Weather











Sweater is undoubtedly my favorite kind of weather and pairing it with a warm vest makes me love it even more. I love the contrast of the vest and booties neutrals with the black base of my sweater dress; I tied it all together with a subtle leopard print belt. Mixing different tones in the same color family gives any outfit a rustic feel and this paring was perfect for a rainy day out running errands.

Layered Cape Outerwear







I had been on the hunt for a perfect cape and I finally found one at none other than Forever 21. I love being able to find such chic pieces at an affordable price and the stripped detail of this cape really pops. I thought all of my cape wearing dreams were crushed when winter weather came in this week with no signs of stopping, but we luckily found a break this weekend when fall made a semi-comeback (it got to almost 50 degrees!). I decided to pull it out while I had the chance and pair it with a cozy cream cowl neck sweater for extra warmth. It was the perfect layering outfit for savoring the last days of fall. 








Even though the winter weather has weened, the holidays are still upon us!...why not enter to win some gift shopping money? Thanks to these lovely ladies below, you have the chance to win $100 paypal cash! This giveaway will end next week and the winner will be announced then, good luck! ;)

Boho Prints, Fur, & Floppy Hats


Happy little friday love bugs! I'm not sure about you but I am so ready for this week to be over! The end of my semester is nearing (thank goodness) and I could not be more excited. For todays look I channeled fall boho (even though Chicago has now decided to skip straight to frigid winter weather). I've had my eye out for a floppy hat that wouldn't break the bank (even though I'm lusting after this), well I found it at Nordstrom! I paired it with a print top, a faux fur trimmed vest, skinny jeans and some booties. And of course some bling (alex mika infinity ring, band ring, chanel ring, and amazing cuff from Italy). I hope you all have a fab weekend!

Gifts for the Girls Under $50


I don't know about you, but I'm starting my holiday shopping early this year. I always seem to find myself scrambling and feeling stressed out so I am hitting stores now to allow myself some time to really enjoy everything this time of year has to offer. I like to start small and stocking stuffers are a great way to get a few little meaningful things for your girlfriends and the ladies in your family without breaking the bank. Everything in this gift guide is under $50 and is small enough to fit in a cute fun sized gift bag.

Sporty Sweater


The only part about fall that I love is the cozy sweaters! This ladder sleeve sweater is definitely on repeat in my wardrobe. You can do so much to style! For this look I kept it simple and sporty. I was running around all day (in the cold) so I was very happy I chose to pair it with my vans. My hott starbucks was also my best friend! Since my sweater matched my nails (and my starbucks cup) I decided to match my lip color to it as well! A rich wine colored lip is definitely out of my comfort zone but I got several compliments on it so it may appear more often!

Happy tuesday!
