But really though – how on EARTH is it already 2/3 of the way through November?! I mean….WHAT?! And Thanksgiving is next week?! Anyway, enough about how fast time flies. I found this sweater on the bottom shelf at GAP last week and it was only $24! #winning – I love the color and how it’s loose-fitting (oh, and it’s SUPER soft too!)

And clearly I’ve got a little infatuation with grey these days….considering yesterday’s post (I’m just realizing the grey motif here).  I guess you could say it’s an easy color to mix and match with :) It’s an unexpected neutral for sure.

Wish I could write more, but I’ve got lots of work to do for the FULL/DAY-time job (although this blog could very well be a full time job too – sheesh!) – so I’ve got to peace out! Hope you have a jolly Thursday!

…and then there was that time I decided I loved grey and navy together ;) And yes, I’m wearing plaid on plaid and I kind of like it. I was searching my closet for a grey and white striped long sleeve tee (I seem to have lost), but couldn’t find it and ended up wearing this plaid shirt. I still think a striped tee (love print mixing!) would be cute, but I don’t hate this little combo either. What do you think?

This is a first for me – wearing denim on denim. I never really saw myself trying this “trend” but I found myself in an “outfit situation” (ha!) where I loved the chambray-and-stripes-and-red-vest-combo but wasn’t sure what to wear on bottom. And given that I was traveling at the time (and thus living out of a suitcase), the options were pretty limited. But after trying the look with the jeans, I have to say…I didn’t hate it! So here I am, joining the denim on denim party :)

I’ve been waiting for SO long (okay…it’s only been like 2-3 weeks) to tell you all about this exciting partnership I’ve been working on with Kate Spade. I shared a few sneak peeks over the past month and those only got me even MORE excited about sharing the full post.

If you’ve ever been to a Kate Spade retail store, then you know that the decor and actual store itself is JUST as cute as all the merchandise within it.  Besides the adorable wall paper and fabulous furniture (and okay…seriously everything in there), my favorite part is the fabulous prints that decorate the walls and display shelves. And there’s always a super cute and quirky collection of prints, arranged together creating an on-trend, bright and cheerful gallery wall.

….And speaking of, do you recognize any of these prints?!

I’ve been obsessed with these Kate Spade gallery walls (the ones in the brick and mortar stores) for years now. They’re kind of famous – just google it.

But the prints have never been for sale….until NOW! As a thank you to their facebook fans, the Kate Spade team is now offering their prints for sale as a Facebook Exclusive. They asked me to help launch the collection and “style” them in my new Dallas home. Of course I said yes (!) and couldn’t be more excited :)

I can’t get enough of this (super cozy!) plaid blanket scarf. It matches more than most plaids and can be worn several different ways. I love pulling out the red accents – by either pairing it with a red sweater, red accessories, or layering underneath with a red turtleneck.

I love the plaid paired with stripes too – the colors compliment each other nicely ;) don’t you think? Anyway, enough about the outfit. Have you started your holiday shopping yet?! I know it’s still early, but based on my experience last year…I’d highly suggest getting started (at least thinking!) early.

I’m working on putting together lots of helpful gift guides to give you a little help – do any of you have any special requests? Please comment and let me know!

I’ve been so excited to post about this bow tie necklace since the second I laid eyes on it. Isn’t it just the coolest thing you’ve ever seen? For me, it was love at first sight. One of my roommates saw it when I was putting together this instagram on our living room floor (#typical) and was like, “…okay, that’s the most awesome thing I’ve ever seen! a bow tie made of crystals?!” And my response, was was an ecstatic, “I know, right?! I’m obsessed!” I have a feeling you felt the same way when you saw it in these photos above – right?! Right. It’s a show stopper for sure ;) …oh, and I think it would make a great Christmas present too – don’t you think? ;)

Speaking of Christmas presents, have you seen this new-ish (launched a few months ago) bag from GiGi New York?! This style is called the Madison cross body and comes in a few different pebble leathers. It’s the perfect size for day-to-night essentials and adds a cute accent to any outfit. Personally, I think their website is loaded with amazing gifts. I’ll for sure be including some of their goodies in upcoming gift guides…you can’t go wrong with leather and personalization ;)

This shirt also comes in a classic black and white stripe, which I’m tempted to snag. I want to mention that I really like the length of this shirt – it’s a little longer than most button downs. And the longer length makes it easier to style.

PS: I’m doing a fun little instagram giveaway that I’m hoping to get posted (on instagram) either later today or tomorrow for a chance to win one of these beautiful cross body bags + personalization!

By now (the middle of November), you’ve probably been seeing the ever-so-popular plaid blanket scarf everywhere. Not only are they warm and cozy (love the extra fabric!), but they’re also a great way to get more mileage out of your Fall wardrobe. I love using mine for layering and have been keeping one in my purse or car just in case I get chilly while out (or in a restaurant!).  I brought mine with me pretty much everywhere this weekend and was SO glad I did – I ended up using it several times!

I’ve got the one from Sole Society because I find that the colors are easy to pair with other items in my closet :) I also got the black and white striped one by Sole Society because I thought it would be fun to pair with other prints – and plus, you can always find a way to mix and match with stripes.
