1. Pearls, Chambray, Leopard


    Cold weather means I’m back to layering button-ups and sweaters almost every day! A great layering staple is a cute chambray shirt. I scored this one from old navy, but I have a couple others from Lands’ End Canvas and Brooks Brothers. They are great for work looks and casual looks too. 

    Layering with thicker sweater and cardigans can make you a bit bulky on top, so I like adding in a belt to accentuate my waist. image

  2. Hey Babyboo! Family Fun!

    Sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

    This autumn has been lots of fun! The kids have been to the pumpkin patch, trick or treating and a couple of fall festivals. For the chillier days, we find fun ways to spend time together inside. We often enjoy cool and educational shows on Nick Jr. My son (four years old) and daughter (15 months) love to dance, learn and play along with many of Nick Jr.’s characters!

    We love Yo Gabba Gabba, so we were excited to hear that YoGG co-creator, Scott Schultz, and YoGG music supervisor, Ben Schultz, along with Night & Day Studios, are creating a new video series and app for babies!

    Hi Babyboo! will bring music, art, puppets,  sign language, and giggles to the youngest audiences with Hi BabyBoo!

    Scott and Ben are taking this project directly to friends and fans with Kickstarter. Funding will help produce a new multimedia experience for toddlers and babies, including five-minute episodes of the new show and an interactive iPad app that kids and grownups can enjoy together.

    Supporter rewards include a variety of exclusive Hi BabyBoo! items, such as T-shirts, onesies, plush dolls, baby books, posters, a production diary, the finished app, and even chances to meet the crew and join the cast.

    Please join us in supporting the Schultzes to bring this magical project to life! To view the project and enter for a chance to win a bunch of cool prizes, see below!

  3. Candy Coated Fall

    Broke out my hot pink double cloth wool coat I scored at J. Crew last year on SUPER sale :) I gotta say, this coat really tested my photography skills! It was so hard to capture the true color of the coat. Yes, it’s bright pink…but still I found it hard to get the shots I could be more happy with #bloggertroubles #tripodadventures :)

    I love the bright color. I get lots of complements from women when I wear this coat! I think most ladies never stop loving pink :) This was a work look. I tossed in my calf hair leopard pumps since wearing all black essentially create a blank slate. I could have tossed in more color for accessories, but I went for a more simple necklace.

    Thinking of buying a new winter coat? Try one that gives you a color pop! The J. Crew outerwear sale later in the year is a great time to score big. I bought this coat for less than $80 and it retails for over $300! :)


  4. In The Mix


    I mixed a few things together in this look—mixed patterns (stripes and leopard) and I mixed trends (cargo vest, embellished sleeves, and the maxi skirt). It came out pretty good. I’ve been wanting to mix stripes and leopard. I’ve seen the look on Pinterest so much and that gave me a bit of courage to go for it.  Are you following me on Pinterest?

    Again, since I had so much going on on the top, I chose to keep my bottom piece simple. This long charcoal gray maxi skirt fit the bill! It’s a pretty old DKNY piece that I’ve had for maybe close to 10 years. I adore it! It’s almost like a thick sweatshirt material/ponte knit, the quality is fantastic.
