Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!

I hope that you have all had a good week. I am linking up with Amanda and sharing my latest favorites.

  1. Bag – I love the pop of pink and that this is a cross body.
  2. Blush Top – This top is on sale right now and currently in my shopping cart.
  3. Leopard Flats –  I love these flats to wear right now and also for spring. They would look cute with the blush top too. 🙂
  4. Statement Necklace – Hot pink is my absolute favorite color so this necklace has been added to my wish list.
  5. Recipe – This sounds delicious and perfect for a chilly night.



Thank you all so much for stopping by and I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!


Faux Fur Vest & Plaid

Plaid Shirt / Jeans/ OTK Boots/Sunglasses/ Faux Fur Vest here and here  



Happy Wednesday!


I bought this faux fur vest in Charleston when we were visiting my in-laws.  It is SO soft and it also has pockets which I also love. I have worn it a bunch of times with a lot of different tops but I really like this plaid and faux fur combo.  I was also a fan of the pop of the red which is nice when it is dreary outside.  I took advantage of the opportunity to wear my over-the-knee boots too since the snow had melted. Being able to wear normal shoes outside during the winter makes me very happy. I also will admit that while taking these pictures I did get cold so that is why I put my coat back on. If any of you have any tips on taking photos outside during the winter, please share them!


Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day! 🙂

Happy Friday!

I hope that you all had a good week. Most of the snow has melted here which is great. Other than  that I finished another book, tried a new recipe and watching the Winter Olympics.  Alright, let’s get into my favorites for this week.


  1. Bag – I love that this bag is both practical and stylish. I am also a big of cross body bags.
  2. Joggers –  I am in desperate need of some lounge pants just to wear around the house. Or on the days where I don’t feel like wearing leggings. Anyway, these are cute and inexpensive.
  3. Top – I have this top in a chiffon version in black. I like that this is a different material and the blush color is perfect to wear year-round.
  4.  Recipe – I have finally started to make some recipes. This one sounds delicious and I would like to try it.
  5. Book –  After Karly recommended this book I saw it in the store and bought it. SO GOOD! I loved it so much. It was heartwarming, funny, and the type of book that will make you feel happy. I definitely recommend it and it would also make a great movie!

Valentine’s Day Outfit

Casual Valentine’s Day


Happy Valentine’s Day!
I apologize for not posting anything until now. I have been working on some things for this space and I have also been reading a great new book. Anyways…Here is a last-minute outfit idea for today just in case you need one. 🙂 How cute is that heart sweater? It would also be cute to wear after today too. I also could not resist using those earrings and that red bag. What do you all think?
I have also created a Facebook page for this space so check it out. Follow me on Instagram, Bloglovin, and Pinterest as well if you are not doing so already.
Thank you so much and have a great day! ❤

Faux Leather Leggings

Faux Leather Leggings


Happy Wednesday!
A few months ago I finally bought a pair of faux leather leggings.  For some reason I never though that I would ever own a pair, but I became more open-minded and inspired by others. I have a lot of outfit ideas and I will share them with you all soon. Today’s outfit is just some inspiration.  I have seen a lot of looks with a cozy sweater and stiletto booties and I love that idea. I added some delicate jewelry and a simple handbag. What do you all think?
Also, if you are not already follow me on Pinterest, Instagram and Bloglovin. I am also putting together a Facebook page so stay tuned for that too!
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day! 🙂

Happy Friday Everyone!

I hope that you all have had a good week. I have spent a good part of the week researching how I can grow this blog and also Instagram. Do any of you have any tips that you would not mind sharing? If you do, please let me know! 🙂

OK time to share my latest favorites and I am linking up with Amanda.

  1. Cowl Neck Sweater –  This sweater looks so cozy and I love that neutral color.  It is also available in a total of seven colors!
  2. Over-the-Knee Boots – These boots arrived this week and I can’t wait to wear them. They are also currently on sale.
  3. Pink Tote – OK I do not need another tote bag but I love this pink tote.
  4. Recipe – I have been looking for new recipes because I feel like I make the same things every week. This looks delicious and I think that I am going to try it.
  5. The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick –  One of the things that I want to do more this year is read more often. We stopped by the Amazon Bookstore here and I bought this book. I finished it this week and LOVED it. I highly recommend it if you are looking for something to read. 🙂

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!

Kiehl’s Review

Keihl's Review


Happy Wednesday!
Today I wanted to review some Kiehl’s products that I have been using. This is not a sponsored post, I just love these products and wanted to share a review with all of you! 🙂
1. Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream – I have been using this eye cream for almost a year now. I love it. I have tried a lot of other eye creams but they either did nothing or they made my skin itch and burn. This stuff is great and I can see results.
2. Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate –  I have been using this for a few weeks now and love it. I just mix it in with my day moisturizer and my night cream. My skin does not feel dry anymore and I am starting to see a difference. It also feels very soothing.
3. Ultimate Strength Hand Salve – I have mentioned this briefly on here before. My hands get SO dry any time of the year especially during the winter. This stuff has been a life saver. It lasts a long time and I only have to use a little bit. I don’t know if I can use another hand lotion ever again.
 If any of you have any Kiehl’s products that you love, let me know in the comments below. 🙂 Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day! 🙂

Bright Pink Sweater + Floral Scarf

Sweater/Jeans/Booties/Coat/Bag – similar /Scarf- similar



Hi Everyone!

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend.  We tried a restaurant that we had not been to, I caught up with some girlfriends, and I also made vegetarian chili. Stay tuned for the recipe! 😉

Sunday was a dreary day and I just felt like wearing something bright and colorful so I reached for that sweater and that scarf. My sweater is currently on sale and I have it in two other colors. When I saw the bright pink option on sale a few months ago I immediately bought it. For those of you who know me, you know that I love bright pink. 🙂  My booties are perfect for dressing up or down and they are also very comfortable. However the focal point of this outfit is my scarf. My husband gave it to me a few years ago and it is one of my favorite things in my closet. They have a lot of gorgeous scarves on their website in different themes so be sure to check them out. They are also available in a few different sizes. They are truly like works of art.


Thank you all so much for stopping by and I hope that you have a great day! 🙂

  1. Floral Sweatshirt – I love how bright and colorful this sweatshirt is. It also has me dreaming of spring!
  2. Tassel Necklace– So pretty and a great statement necklace.
  3. Leopard Flats – LOVE these flats and I’ve added them to my wish list.
  4. Nest Candle in Ocean Mist & Sea Salt – This candle literally smells like the beach. It is amazing and it has been a great way for me to cure any winter blues.
  5. The 50 Most Beautiful Cities in the World – I have been to a lot of the cities on this list but there are also quite a few that I would love to visit.  I am also proud to say that my home city of Chicago is on this list! 🙂

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!

Tunic + Cozy Cardigan

Tunic/Cardigan – Sold out, similar here  and here. /Leggings/Booties/Trench Coat/Tote

Happy Wednesday!

Since the weather improved last weekend I convinced my husband to be my photographer again  so that I can share this outfit with you all. 🙂

My tunic is currently on sale and I have also have it in white. This tunic is great for layering and to wear with leggings. The color that I am wearing is quail. It is a mauve/purplish color.  I wear a tank underneath because these tunics are a tiny bit sheer. The leggings that I am wearing are high-waisted. I ended up buying two more pairs  because I loved them so much. They are very comfortable and also thicker which is nice during the winter. 🙂 My cardigan I bought on sale but it is sadly sold-out so I linked a similar one. It is really soft and cozy. It is also longer and has pockets which is great. My booties I found last year at Nordstrom Rack. They are very comfortable and I wear them all of the time. My trench coat is currently on sale and is available in other colors. It also has a wool liner which makes it warm. I also linked my tote bag and I have it in the sable color, but it is available other colors.


Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that you all have a great day! 🙂
