What you would purchase if you had $1,000 to spend on your wardrobe to help you look and feel your best?

Tough question, right?

I am an avid shopper {for great deals!} I was recently faced with this question as I am working with Progresso™ to spread the love about the wardrobe makeover contest they are hosting {more on that below!} There are so many beautiful pieces out in stores today that could make my Fall wardrobe SOAR!

Today I wanted to share with you what I would buy if I had $1,000 to spend to spruce up my closet & create the perfect Fall wardrobe to make me feel fabulous:

1 – How gorgeous is this wool toggle coat? A bit of a splurge but it would totally keep me warm and looking chic as the weather cools. Comes in 4 colors -> is it wrong to want them all?

2- A classic belt is always a must-have. I love the braided look of this one.

3- This vest has been on my wish list for a while now. I’ve been waiting for it to go on sale but if I had the extra $$ I’d totally add it to my vest collection!

4- This tortoise statement necklace is a beautiful & classic piece, with a little twist.

5- I’ve sort of been in the market for a pair of distressed denim jeans & these make me happy.

6- I love these brown booties – so perfect for any outfit.

7- Another piece I’ve been wanting to add to my collection is a tortoise cuff – Love this one & the price!

8- LOVING the look of this large slouchy bag. It comes in black and brown. I sort of want them both.

9- I can always use another pair of black knee high boots. These in particular make me pretty happy.

Prices {in order of appearance}: $398 / $33 / $108 / $36 / $70 / $130 / $15 / $55 / $150 = $995  {with $5 to spare!}

October 2014 Stitch Fix #14 {Review}

Time for another Stitch Fix!

I love when my Fixes arrive over the weekend & I have an extra day to take pictures to share with you on the blog & really think about what I want to keep! It’s funny how seeing yourself in photographs wearing something is way different than trying on clothes & looking at yourself in the mirror. Anyone else feel that way?

Anywho – for this Fix, I asked for comfortable, casual, Fall favorites to add to my wardrobe. I didn’t request much this time because I wanted my stylist to do her thing!

Here’s what I received in this months Fix ->

Now, onto the goods ->


Pixley Malynn Asymmetrical Soft Moto Vest {$58}Pixley Malynn Asymmetrical Soft Moto Vest

The one general thing I did ask for in this Fix was VESTS! I’m totally obsessed with them at the moment. This vest is a soft  & stretchy material, I definitely don’t have anything like it in my closet. The style card pairs it with shirts or dresses, which I think is really cool.

The one thing I don’t love about the vest is that it doesn’t have pockets! I love wearing a vest & having it be able to hold my phone & keys, which is awesome since I live in the city & we walk around everywhere. I’m pretty sad about the lack of pockets.

BUT I do like the overall shape of it & I think it’s cute open or zipped. It’s also a great material that looks pretty nice but feels very cozy – which is always a good thing!

What do you think about this vest? How would you wear it?

Market and Spruce Xander Short Sleeve Woven Back Sweatshirt {$54}

I’ve had such luck with all things Market & Spruce lately and I real like like the coloring & flowy back of this top BUT it’s sort of almost exactly like a shirt I got {and kept!} from my last fix. BUT the back of the top IS different & I love the orange/red color for the Fall.

orange back

I think it’s a flattering top in general because it’s loose but still somewhat structured.

Also, the cuffed sleeves make me happy.

What do you think?

RD Style Calandra Side Button Hooded Poncho {$68}RD Style Calandra Side Button Hooded Poncho

This is one I am really on the fence on – I pulled it out of the box and something like this is so me. I like loose, comfortable tops, something I can easily wear with skinny jeans and boots and be good to go – this fits the bill.

fall clothes

I like the off white coloring, it’s more cream in real life and the hood is fun too. I also enjoy the button detail on the sides. But is it too much fabric? Is it too big on me? Does it look boxy?

back poncho

It’s a poncho & it’s oversized, because it’s supposed to be oversized – I get that –  but I can’t decide if it’s too big on me!

What do you think?

side button ponchoponcho

I know I will wear this a lot, because its cozy & easy to throw on, but I can’t decide if it’s a little sack-like on me?

Would love to know what you think?

Would you wear this poncho?

This jeans are OH! SO! comfortable and cozy. They are distressed with a few little “worn” marks on them & I love the cuffs at the bottom. Ankle jeans make me happy in general.

The only bummer about these is that they are a liiiiiitle big on me.

They are boyfriend jeans so they are supposed to be looser & more of a relaxed fit, but I definitely think I could have gone with a size down.

On the other hand, I don’t have any “looser” jeans like this. But that may be a bit of a price to pay for a more casual looking pair of jeans. Thoughts?

Another fix & another bag!

I love getting a bag in my Fixes {because I’m a bag lady!} – I don’t think you can ever have too many! {Words from a true bag lady!}
urban expressions

I really like the color of this bag AND the gold detail. But for some reasons it’s not really wowing me like I thought it would. My mom was super surprised I wasn’t all over this bag, and I am a bit too! It’s definitely cute & had a ton of pockets and zip details – the coloring also makes it perfect for most seasons too.

Do you like this bag?

Skinnygirl Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Skinnygirl. I received a product sample and a promotional item to facilitate my review.


That moment when your {favorite} sandals match your {favorite} hummus.


I have currently been all about stocking my pantry and my fridge with healthy & delicious snacks that I can easily grab when the hunger cravings strike, but also food that I can share with my little man. Doing so is harder than you might think, requires a little extra time and a lot of extra planning but the end result {of baby led weaning & having a good eater – fingers crossed!} is totally worth it!

When I was given the opportunity to try out the new Skinnygirl Hummus I was really excited about it because I had recently tried out the Skinnygirl  Tasty Bars and LOVED them! {Chocolate Peanut Butter with Sea Salt?! Yes Please!} So I was pretty sure that the new hummus line would be equally as awesome.

And I’m happy to report that it didn’t disappoint.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

The awesome thing about Skinnygirl Hummus is that it is made with non-fat Greek yogurt – so it has a hint of sweetness to it. It is also reduced calorie, all-natural, gluten-free and kosher. AND it tastes amazing.

I was able to try out the Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, but other Flavors include: Classic, Cilantro Jalapeño and Roasted Garlic. Pretty much a whole lotta yum in each bowl! I can’t wait to get my hands on the other flavors!


I love snacking on hummus with my favorite crackers, pretzels or peppers. It’s always awesome to have on hand in the fridge when I need a quick snack and want to keep healthy options readily available.


Now it’s your turn to share:

What’s YOUR favorite hummus flavor?


What do you love to snack on when enjoying hummus?

A little more about Skinnygirl  ->

Skinnygirl, best known for delicious low-calorie cocktails, has recently expanded its portfolio to include non-alcoholic beverages, snacks, and microwave popcorn. Deciding to expand the brand into fresh, party-ready dips was a no-brainer for Skinnygirl creator, Bethenny Frankel. “Everyone loves indulgent snacking while enjoying a cocktail, and with these dips there’s no need to feel guilty. Each flavor is more delicious than the next. It’s hard to believe they’re low calorie! I love using them in recipes too!”

Currently Skinnygirl Hummus is located at Kroger, Hy-Vee, Fairway Market, Bristol Farms, Gelson’s, and Walmart

3- These boots are a little on the sporty side and I kind of like that.

9- These dark brown boots are a little on the shorter side, but I kind of like that. I also like that they also come in black and cognac AND than they are under $30. Cuteness!
