This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for so many things, one of them being great girlfriends! Girlfriends who are there when you need to call and vent, girlfriends who meet you after work for some much-needed retail therapy and girlfriends who let you raid their closets when you're in desperate need of something new to wear. I had a fun style swap party with some of my dearest friends and today I'm giving you the inside scoop. For this challenge, I enlisted the help of my friend Colby. She's fun, vivacious and full of personality! She loves bold prints, bright colors and statement jewelry. For the swap, Colby was nice enough to let me borrow her super chic silver statement necklace that she scored at Target. To put a fun holiday spin on this everyday necklace I paired it with a burgundy skater skirt, a black velvet crop top and a cream bow coat. Of course, you can never have too many bows if you ask me, so I added in statement bow pumps and topped my look off with burgundy lipstick. This necklace is so versatile! It could easily be transitioned to a day at the office with a structured blazer, a crisp a button-down, and sleek slacks, that's Colby's favorite way to wear it. 

Swap parties are so much fun! Do you and your girlfriends ever get your swap on?

Stripes + Winter White


Sweater: Mango (similar), Pants: Ralph Lauren (similar here & here), Earrings: Image Boutique, Bag: Charming Charlie, Bracelets: Lex & Mila & Anarchy Street, Hat: Dynamic Asia (similar), Sunnies: Charlotte Russe, Shoes: Qupid

Crisp (off) white trousers are definitely a great wardrobe staple for the colder months. As much as you may be tempted to follow the "no white after Labor Day" rule, don't! White looks just as chic in the fall and winter as it does in the spring and summer. To put more of a fall spin on my trousers I added in a striped turtle neck, a burgundy hat and a matching top handle tote.

I hope you're having a great week so far!

Polka dots always put a smile on my face. I paired this pretty printed romper with over the knee boots and a royal blue cropped jacket to make it perfect for fall. A touch of red lipstick added an extra pop of color while a vintage belt gave it a little je ne sais quoi. Playful prints will always have a spot in my wardrobe. 

I hope your Monday is going great so far,  thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Weekend Staycation W/ Clarisonic

Clarisonic Mia 2 Facial Sonic Cleansing Device, Essie Polish, Robe: Linea Donatella via TJ Max, Bedding: Custom,
Water dispenser: Pottery Barn, Bracelet: Ann Taylor, Earrings: Bebe, Candle: Voluspa, Towels: SocialStars, Toner Pads: Arcona
Happy Sunday! 
I am excited to be partnering with Clarisonic on today's post to share my go-to skin cleansing routine. After a long work week, there's nothing I enjoy more than a weekend in -- a staycation! This means lounging around the house in little makeup and a comfy robe and treating yourself to breakfast in bed, homemade spa water and a DIY pedi! I mean, no staycation would be complete without spa services. To get clean, glowing, just-left-the-spa skin, I turned to my Clarisonic electric face brush. For years, I was guilty of using a bar of soap and my hands to wash off my makeup, but once I started using this device before bed, I saw a difference in my skin within just a week! The Clarisonic Mia Two Facial Sonic Cleansing Device unglogs pores and leaves you with smoother, more radiant skin in just 60 seconds, making it perfect for any girl on the go! If you're a lover of Clarisonic like I am be sure to share your experience on social media using the hashtag #soniclove. 

I hope you had a great weekend!
