In The Trenches




ANN TAYLOR TRENCH (similar HERE and HERE)// ANN TAYLOR TEE (similar HERE)// J. CREW PUMPS// CLARE V. CLUTCH// PRADA SUNGLASSES// BURBERRY WATCH (similar HERE)// DAVID YURMAN BRACELET AND RING

I've always been a big fan of the trench coat. I love how the plain trench is being worn so many different ways right now- as a vest, a jacket, a dress... The possibilities are endless. I really love this ANN TAYLOR TRENCH DRESS because it can be worn alone, layered over a tee or button-up, or worn as a vest over a sweater and jeans. It's just such a classic piece.

Faux Layer





J. CREW SWEATER (also love THIS one)// 7 FOR ALL MANKIND JEANS (on sale!)(similar HERE)// MADEWELL BOOTIES (almost exact match HERE!)// TORY BURCH BAG// RAG & BONE HAT (similar HERE)

I've had this J. CREW SWEATER hanging on the back of my closet door for a month just patiently waiting for an opportunity to wear it. Yesterday was the perfect opportunity because it was super windy, and there was a damp chill in the air. I'm a huge fan of the layered look, and I love that J. CREW has created these foolproof layered pieces. It's also a practical sweater for when you want a layered look, but it's still a little too warm for the extra material that comes with a "real" layer. I'm hoping that J. Crew will come out with a cute sweater dress with a similar layered bottom. :-)

Rainy Days




I apologize for my absence lately. I was sick for several days and I've been trying to take it easy and rest. I'm feeling much better now though. The weather the past few days has actually been perfect for laying in bed and relaxing. It's been a little rainy and a lot cooler than it was a week ago. The slight dip in temps have me really excited for Fall weather to get here!

I really did not need another handbag (have you seen my Instagram lately?), but I could not pass up this beautiful TORY BURCH wine-colored bag!! It's the perfect Fall accessory and compliments other colors so well. I plan to use it like a neutral bag and pair it with everything! The same goes for this JANESSA LEONE hat, which I've had on my wish list for several months. It's still super hot out, but I've had a little heart-to-heart with the heat, and I think he's finally realizing that it's over between us...

FALL WISH LIST



Just a few items that I'm currently obsessing over. I've had these booties in my shopping cart for over a week. I think I just need to pull the trigger! I'm also obsessing over anything windowpane or scalloped recently. This faux leather midi skirt is seriously amazing and would look super cute with the plaid shirt or even the blush jacket

J. CREW SHIRT// NORDSTROM FAUX LEATHER SKIRT (similar HERE)// J. CREW PUMPS// GUCCI BAG (similar HERE)// PRADA SUNGLASSES// BURBERRY WATCH (similar HERE)

I love anything and everything leather. Leather can be very very expensive though, especially since your real leather items are usually made by more expensive designers. While I would recommend investing in one or two really nice leather pieces (like a jacket or handbag), I wouldn't recommend breaking the bank on a item that you're only going to wear a few times. This adorable skirt is faux leather, under $80, and looks, smells and feels like real leather! I'm obsessed with it!! The elastic waistband makes it super comfortable too. I would recommend going one size down because it does run just a tad large.

I've never seen any flavors like these in any store! These chocolates are more than just sweets--they are an experience! 

Treatsie and I are giving away a 6-MONTH SUBSCRIPTION (or $120 in store credit, your choice)! Plus, everyone who enters will receive an e-mail at the end of the giveaway with a code to get a FREE TRIAL OF TREATSIE! Giveaway closes Friday, September 19, 2014.

Zipped and Tied





Any outfit that combines zippers and bows is a winner in my book! I'm so happy that the factory store brought back THIS dress because it's one of my favorite dresses of all time! This dress is super versatile. I've worn it with leopard flats and a denim jacket, and I've worn it with sneakers. I decided to go for a super girly look this time and wear it with my favorite J. CREW BLACK PUMPS and a black ribbon from my cheerleading days.
