Embellished Shoulders

I absolutely love this sweater from Wallis! The embellished shoulders are so unique, and it makes it so perfect for the holidays. I definitely think I will be wearing it on Thanksgiving, which is coming up a little too quickly. I love it with these black jeans and blue heels, but I see myself wearing it a few other ways too. Do you have a sweater with fun embellishment?

Ankle Boots + Giveaway

When the weather cools down my favorite outfit to wear is a dress with tights and ankle boots. I prefer to wear ankle boots over taller boots, and this pair from BCBG is my new favorite! I love the mix of leather and suede, and the gorgeous gold zipper on the side. The added bonus is that they are really comfortable! I was able to wear them all day without having aching feet. I'll definitely be wearing them non-stop for the rest of fall and during the winter! I'm excited to team up with Shoebuy.com to give one lucky reader a $50 gift certificate to find the perfect pair of shoes! Just enter below using the Rafflecopter. Giveaway will end on 11/26 and the winner will be notified via email.

Here are the items I'm currently craving this week! It's been chilly in North Carolina, so I've been looking at warm pieces to add to my wardrobe. How amazing is this Gap plaid vest and the Pim + Larkin wrap coat?! They look so cozy. Which is your favorite, and what are you currently craving?

3 Hair Styles With Curly Hair

3hairstyleswithcurlyhair

I love experimenting with different hair styles, and with different hair tools! I have really thick and frizzy hair, which means that I have to spend time on my hair in the morning. Lately, I've been really loving the the way that my hair looks with loose curls. So today I want to show you 3 hair styles you can do with curly hair! These are all everyday looks that are really easy to do, and they are great options if you're looking to switch up your daily hair routine.

Here are the products you will need that you can find at your local Walmart:

-Infiniti Pro by Conair® 3Q™ Brushless Motor Dryer
-Conair bobby pins (I purchased the 90 pack)
-Conair Professional round brush

With all 3 hair styles, I started out by blow drying my hair straight using the Infiniti Pro by Conair® 3Q™ Brushless Motor Dryer and the Conair Professional round brush. This blow dryer reduces drying time by up to 70% which is a life saver in the morning. It also reduces heat damage which is an added bonus. Next, I curled my hair with the Infiniti Pro by Conair® Curl Secret®. This tool draws your hair into the chamber, has a timer that you set to either 8, 10, or 12 seconds, and then it beeps rapidly when it's done. It reduces the amount of frizz, and leaves you with smooth and shiny curls.

Once your hair is curly you can create the following 3 hair styles. The first hair style is a side twist:

Step 1: Take a piece of hair above your left ear. 
Step 2: Twist it about half way down
Step 3: Pin it behind your ear with two crossed bobby pins.

Here is the second hair style which is a half up look with two braids:

Step 1: Take a piece of hair on both sides. 
Step 2: Braid each piece all the way down. 
Step 3: I don't like tight braids, so pull the braids apart to loosen them a little.

DSC_2255 Step 4: Cross the braids in the back, and secure each side with two crossed bobby pins. I try to tuck them so that you can't easily see the ends and all of the bobby pins used.

The third hairstyle is a side pony tail:

Step 1:  Gather your hair into a pony tail on the right side
Step 2: Leave a curly piece of hair in the front. 
Step 3: Wrap a piece of hair around the elastic so that you aren't able to see it. Secure that piece of hair with a bobby pin.


What's your favorite everyday hair style?

The Weekly Steal

Here is this week's steal! I mentioned yesterday about my love for fall hats. I've been looking around online for more to add to my collection, but I've been noticing how expensive they can be. I absolutely love this one from Joe's Jeans, but the price is a bit too high. I then found this one from Target that looks very similar but for a much smaller price. Which hat would you buy?

Fall Hat

Other than jackets, my favorite part about fall is getting to wear fun hats. I've been really obsessed with them lately, and I fell in love with one that one of my blogging friends had a couple weeks ago. She told me about the shop Altar'd State (which is an amazing company), and I ordered this hat right away. I can't wait to wear it again with some different outfits. Do you love fall hats as much as I do?

Here are the items I'm currently craving this week! How amazing are these multi glitter earrings by Kate Spade?! They are definitely the perfect piece of jewelry for the holidays. I also really love the leather sleeves on this top by Generation Love. It adds some edge, and it's really fun. Which is your favorite, and what are you currently craving?
