Links I'm Loving

 It has been a little while since I have last posted on here. I feel like the month of September has been one of the longest/shortest month of 2022. I got sidetracked by so many things, and I must confess, like many Royal watchers I put my life on hold to watch all the coverage surrounding Queen Elizabeth II… she was such an amazing, accomplished person who has seen and been through so much in her seventy years as a monarch. I know no one can last forever and that there comes a point that we all must part one day, but I can’t believe someone who was so admired by the world is no longer her. I felt like watching the news coverage was like watching history.  

I do plan to post on here much more often, especially with the holiday season coming up! I am so excited that we are in the “BER” months. This is just my favorite time of the year and I am just so excited for everything this come with this last quarter of the year. For now though, here are a few links that I am currently loving!

One// Sarah Flint Boots

Is anyone else ridiculously excited for boot season, or just me? As you all have probably guessed by now, I am completely obsessed with Sarah Flint shoes; the quality and fit is just amazing! I have already purchase the Perfect Riding Boot 30 and I have my eye on a few other pairs of Sarah Flint boots… Use code: SARAHFLINT-BALAURENAID for $50 to receive $50 off your first pair of Sarah Flint shoes!

 

Two// Classic Minestrone Soup from Magnolia Table 

This is not only the best Minestrone soup recipe I have come across, but the best minestrone soup ever. Makes enough to easy last a family {or individual} anywhere from 3 days to an entire week. Absolutely love this recipe! The only thing I do different is I do leave the spinach out because I have found that the soup taste better heated up and last longer without the spinach cooked into the initial batch of soup

 

Three// Hocus Pocus 2 Official Trailer

If you have been following my Instagram stories, then you know that I am beyond excited for the release of Hocus Pocus 2, available this Friday on Disney Plus! 


Four// Summersalt Sale

If you haven’t shopped the SummerSalt sale, then you need to as soon as possible. All swim is currently 30-60% off and you can use code: LAURENJS10 to save an extra $10 on your Summersalt purchase!!

 

Five// Diane Keaton + J. Crew

I love every single movie that Diane Keaton has ever been in. She is so fun to watch on screen and she seems like she would be a really great person in real life as well. I hold Diane Keaton {and Nancy Myers} 100% accountable for the coastal grandmother trend that took the fashion world by storm this past summer, so it only makes sense that J. Crew would want to make her part of their fall campaign!!

Guest Post :: Cozy Home Decor Wedding Gift Ideas

 I absolutely love home gifts for any occasion! I get so excited over things from William-Sonoma and Crate & Barrel that it is almost embarrassing. Today Peter Minkoff is sharing cozy home wedding gift ideas, some of which I am definitely adding to my own wish list!   

Being invited to a wedding is a great honor, but it can also be stressful, especially if you don’t know what to get for the happy couple. If you’re bad at buying gifts or if you just don’t know the couple that well to get them something sentimental, here are a few ideas that will definitely hit the mark and make their family home full of beauty, comfort, and love (while not costing you a fortune). 

Blankets

It might sound a bit weird to get people blankets, but think about it—some of our most prized possessions are blankets (our baby blanky, our first bed cover with superheroes, cozy throws, family quilts, etc.) So provide your happy couple with a top-quality blanket throw, and let them create their own memories of cuddling underneath and talking about their future. And if you want to give your newlyweds the gift of rest and sleep, check out weighted blankets online and take your pick. These work great for minimizing anxiety and stress, and they offer ultimate comfort and relaxation while sleeping. After the wedding hustle and bustle has settled, your couple will be so grateful for your thoughtful gift that will help them get the best sleep of their lives. 

Picnic basket with goodies

Is there anything more romantic than a picnic for two? Provide your couple with a perfect tool to bring all their picnics to life—an old-fashioned picnic basket with a few lux goodies inside. Best baskets are already equipped with plates, wine glasses, utensils, and napkins. Add an outdoor blanket to the mix, and you just made their next date under the sun so much better. And when not in use, a gorgeous vintage picnic basket can be used as a perfect hallway, patio, deck, or mud room decoration. 

Personalized wine box

The happy couple always needs to have something high quality to make a toast. With a personalized wine bow with three or five custom wine bottles, you can ensure they have tasty wine for every big day in the future. The bottles are marked with dates and meant to be opened for their first, third, fifth, tenth, and 15th anniversaries. The box is beautiful in itself, engraved with the spouses’ names and the date of their wedding. Just make sure to choose some tasty wines that can withstand the test of time. 

Espresso machine

The first days of marriage are super romantic, easy, and relaxing, but once you need to return from your honeymoon and start living in the real world again, things can get stressful. Well, with a cup of coffee to wake you up every morning, your couple will avoid many early-morning grumpy quarrels. A double-server coffee maker will be not just the single most used gadget in their home but also serve as  beautiful decoration that will elevate their kitchen design. 

Designer plant pots

If you know your couple takes pride in being great plant parents, why not surprise them with a gift perfect for their leafy companions? Pick out the most beautiful set of designer pots that will replace their mismatched pots and create a lux and sophisticated vibe in their home. If they are handmade, you can even order stamped pots with their initials on the bottom, as a signature and a reminder for their family and love to grow and thrive. 

Framed wedding invitation

Once you receive your wedding invitation, don’t throw it away, but turn it into beautiful house décor for your couple. Blow up the invitation and put it in a gorgeous frame to be displayed in the bedroom. You can opt for a box frame, so the couple can add trinkets and memories from the wedding and make a little treasure display that will forever remind them of the happiest day of their lives. 

Any one of these perfect wedding gifts will fit beautifully into your newlyweds’ home and make their shared space full of love, style and comfort.

Guest Post :: Healthy Tips for Taking Good Care of Your Pet

 Pet care is so important and one thing I think people honestly underestimate when they adopt their first furry family member. From the time I was little I always remember having an animal of some sorts in my family home, from birds, to wild baby bunnies, domesticated French flop bunny, gold fish {short lived experience…}, guineapig, dogs, cats, etc… Each one has been so sweet and they always steal a piece of your heart, but animals require attention and the proper care. Peter Minkoff is guest posting on the blog today and he is sharing all about pet care! 

Having a pet is like having a child or a best friend. A cat or a dog can quickly become that one friend that you can rely on every time for cuddles and comfort. However, like humans, pets require proper care and love to stay healthy and happy. From regular vaccinations to grooming and vet appointments at least twice a year, we have several convenient tips to help pet owners provide their furry friends with utmost care and a healthy lifestyle. 

Regular vaccination

Pets can develop many health conditions if you don’t offer them their shots when needed. Every responsible pet owner will schedule an immunization appointment with the vet as soon as they get their new four-legged friend. You’ll get a thorough immunization schedule from your Sydney vet, to know when to bring your pup or cat for the following vaccination. Keep distemper, Lyme disease and rabies at bay by offering your dog regular vaccinations. Feline leukaemia and herpes virus are common in cats but can be successfully prevented with regular immunization.

 

Healthy nutrition

Unlike stray cats and dogs who eat whatever they find on the streets of Sydney, you'll want to offer your pet only healthy foods. For your pet, you'll want the best and healthiest ingredients. Therefore, enrich your best buddy's life by feeding them the energy and nutrients they deserve. A good balance of fats, carbs and proteins is essential for cats. Wheat, barley, corn, beef, tuna and chicken are some proteins that your cat will enjoy eating. Vitamins A and B, folic acid, calcium, phosphorus, iron, sodium and zinc are equally valuable to cats and dogs. For better digestion, offer your pets plenty of fibre. 

Usual vet visits 

Aside from vaccination appointments, your pet should have regular vet visits at least twice a year. That way, the vet will be able to identify any health risks and diagnose illness early on. If your pet urgently needs a veterinary surgeon, Sydney is the place to look for them. You can find professional and expert vets that will offer your pet the best treatment regardless of the severity of their condition. Make trips to the vet less stressful by familiarizing the pets with the vet visits and offering them treats after they've acted well during a pet visit. 

Keep them active

Regular walks are essential for dogs. Cats will find their way to entertain themselves indoors as long as they have a few of their favourite toys and one climbing piece. Dogs, on the other hand, need regular outdoor activity because they won't be using a litter box as cats will. Aside from that, dogs love to run and spend time in the fresh air, so look for the nearest dog park if you don't own a backyard. Do your morning and evening walks with occasional afternoon trips outside if they let you know they're too confined inside. Not only will outdoor activity keep the dog happy but fit too and prevent many health problems like obesity. 

Don’t forget oral care

Oral care is imperative for cats and dogs as much as for humans. So, don't forget to include that in the pet's grooming ritual. Abscesses, tooth loss, and jawbone infections are common oral problems in dogs that arise due to improper oral care. Brush your pups' teeth at home if the dog is obedient enough. Brush them with wet gauze, and don't forget to check the teeth every six months. Ask for food treats and oral care products from your vet, so you can perform proper at-home oral care. 

Final thoughts

Looking after your pet goes beyond thinking about what food to give them. You'll need to take the pet to the vet regularly, vaccinate them according to schedule and keep their oral care in check. Keep them active, and you'll have a happy, healthy pet that will keep you company for years.

Links I'm Loving

 How crazy is it that Labor Day is just a little over two weeks away… I know schools and colleges have started back, but it is so weird to see fall windows, banners, and even a few leaves dancing in the air… the days are still so sweat with heat that it is a little hard to get in the mind of sweaters, coats, and pants, even as much as I love them. I do have to say though, that I love how the change of seasons singles a new change in life and that there is always something to embrace with each season {in life and in the literal seasons}. For now though… here are a few links that I am currently loving!

One// Summersalt Sale

Keep calm, Summersalt is having a sale! Everything is currently up to 60% off! Summersalt has done so many fun collaborations over the summer with Kendra Scott, Rifle Paper Co, and DVF, and all of these collaborations are included in this sale. And… you can use code: LAURENJS10 to save an extra $10 at checkout!!

 

Two// Hocus Pocus 2

The countdown to the release of the second Hocus Pocus is officially on! I am so excited for this movie! I cannot wait to see how the writers decided to bring back the Sanderson sisters and the new plot line they have dreamed up. September 30 cannot come soon enough! I fully intend to have a fire and a pot of chili on the stove in anticipation for the premier.

 

Three// Hill House Home Re-Edition Gingham

With summer drawing to a close I love the fact that Hill House decided to re-release their gingham collection; it is the perfect print to have in between their whimsical summer prints and winter plaids. Personally, I have my eye on the Louisa Nap Dress in Emerald Gingham 

 

Four// August, by Taylor Swift

I am currently obsessed with this song. I love how dreamy the instrumental parts and the lyrics are when they are married together. I have been listening to it on repeat!

 

Five// Blackberry Hand Pies

How perfect are these for the upcoming Labor Day holiday?! I love seasonal food, and blackberry hand pies {with a scoop of ice cream} just screams ‘summer time’ to me.

Favorite Tex-Mex Recipes

 I don’t care what time of year it is, Tex-Mex food is always a favorite of mine. I feel like these dishes are always so easy to make, hits the spot 100% of the time, and is the best type of comfort food. Each of these dishes smell amazing when they’re cooking, taste delicious, and make for the best leftovers! 

One// The Pioneer Woman Stuffed Belle Peppers

Unpopular opinion, but I really love chopping things up and there are so many things in this recipe that need to be chopped and diced, and I completely love this factor! This is such a great dish that you can even make ahead of time. Comfort food and healthy – definitely a hard combination to beat!

 

Two// Baked Southwest Chicken

This is such an easy and delicious dish to make. I feel like this is another tex-mex dish that has enough vegetables in it where it makes you feel like you are being healthy, minus the amount of cheese… Perfect for a week night dinner!

 

Three// Sheet Pan Fajitas

I have made this dish countless times this summer. The time is always right for Fajitas. This is such a healthy, simple, and flavorful recipe. Love this dish! 

 

Four// Easy Crock Pot Cream Cheese Chicken Chili

If you are not in the mood to cook or do the prep work that most recipes require, then this recipe is for you. This Chicken Chili recipe is so delicious, and it is literally one of those things that you can toss in the crock pot, set it and forget it, and six hours later it will be absolutely delicious! 

 

Five// The Pioneer Woman Turkey Chili 

This is my most favorite chili recipe. I’m not a big beef person, but I usually do prefer beef in chili… however, this recipe is so delicious and well-balance that you will not miss the beef, at all! I love all the ingredients in this recipe, and as far as chili goes, I feel like this is actually a really healthy chili recipe

 Isn’t it funny how age gives you a different perspective? When I was younger and in school, I felt like the day after July 4th started to signal an end to summer, and once school was in session, I felt like it was ‘fall’. Now I feel like fall is still so far away… I live in Nashville, and it really doesn’t start to feel like fall consistently till mid-October, so I feel like I have another month or so left of summer, and I cannot wait to embrace fall fashion and hear the rustle of leaves floating in the air. In the meantime, I love all the gold and brown colors that are starting to surface in the world of fashion! But for now, here are a few links that I am currently loving!

One// Sarah Flint Mirjana Sandals 

I have been wearing these sandals non-stop as of late. They go with literally everything, super comfortable, and who can resist a bow detail {not me}! These sandals are so perfect for now and will make the perfect transition shoe for fall!! Use code: SARAHFLINT-BALAURENAID for $50 off your first pair of Sarah Flint Shoes!!

 

Two// Historical Pointe Shoe Collection

If you ever took ballet at some point in your life, you have to watch this short little video. I have never heard of someone collecting point shoes before, but now I am tempted to collect a few myself… such an interesting and fun video to watch!

 

Three// Summersalt the Coastal Poplin Tie-Waist Midi Dress in Bloom in Midnight

I feel like this is the most perfect summer to fall transition dress. It is so flattering, eco-friendly, has pockets {!}, and the color and print of this dress makes it both summer and early fall friendly! When the temperatures start to drop a little just pair it with your favorite cardigan and you are ready to go! Use code LAURENJS10 to save $10 on your next Summersalt purchase!

 

Four// Wedding Season Trailer

I am 100% here for any feel good, new or old, good or corny – they always put me in such a better frame of mind. This new Netflix rom-com looks so good and I cannot wait till it is released!

 

Five// Southern Living Utterly Deadly Southern Pecan Pie

There might be a debate at the fall table over how one is supposed to pronounce “pecan”, but no matter how you say it, one thing is for sure, pecan pie is always the perfect way to end any fall celebration or dinner! I haven’t tried this pie recipe before, but once the leaves start to change colors, I will definitely be making this one!

Honest Review of My Sarah Flint Shoes

 Before having the opportunity to work with Sarah Flint as a Brand Ambassador, I was first a customer of theirs, and can honestly say that both ends have been such a wonderful experience! Also, you can use my code: SARAHFLINT-BALAURENAID to receive $50 off you first Sarah Flint shoe purchase!! I was a fan before, but now having worked with the Sarah Flint company, learning about some of the behind the scenes, and the inspiration for different shoes and collections, I have fallen even more in love with this company and all their products! 

Sarah Flint has currently has a store in Nashville, TN, Dallas, TX., and then a couple of pop-up stores. Since they are still largely an online company, I thought I would share an honest review of all the Sarah Flint styles I have tried myself!

Grear Sandal

The Grear Sandals have probably been my most worn pair of sandals this summer. I love the fact that they are comfortable right out of the box and that you can wear them all day long. These are a Grecian sandal, that is very flattering, and the tie straps make it so easy to accommodate any foot width. I have a narrow foot and sometimes it is a little bit of a challenge for me to find a gladiator sandal that works for my foot, and the adjustable ties make my feet feel really secure, plus the way you lace them up always reminds me of ballet point shoes, which I love! 

Mirjana Sandal

The Mirjana Sandal is the perfect sandal to slide on and go! They literally go with anything and everything! The Mirjana Sandal is part of Sarah Flint’s ballet inspired collection and the intricate details of the bow and the way it is interwoven to create the strap of the sandal is truly inspired. There is a slight break in period with these shoes; I feel like it took me 3 wears to properly break them in, and the more you wear them, the more the strap mold to your feet and they will become one of your most comfortable pair of sandals that you will ever own!

Perfect Block Sandal 30

LOVE this block sandals! When I first started working with Sarah Flint as a Brand Ambassador these are the shoes that I first chose to try, in Gold Nappa, of course! I’m not a big heel person – I don’t tolerate being uncomfortable very well, especially when it comes to shoes… I chose to try the 30, because I was afraid of the higher heel heights {as ridiculous as that sounds}, and I am amazed at how comfortable they! This is another pair that is comfortable right out of the box, and I really enjoy how the 30-heel height makes these shoes more everyday-ish, just because they are an easy shoe to wear to a casual dinner, and they really go with anything from pants to dresses! All of Sarah Flint heels include extra padding, anatomical arch support, and a slightly wider toe box, and it just really makes a huge difference!

'

Natalie Flat

If you are new to Sarah Flint and on the fence about which shoe to purchase, this is the shoe I would recommend. I feel like the Natalie is her most iconic shoe and the one she became best known for early on. The Natalie Flat also includes extra padding, a rubber forepart on the sole to prevent slipping, and of course, the signature Asymmetrical bow! This is a shoe that also require a little bit of a break in period, but once they have started to break in these are the flats you will reach for a 100 times over – they mold to your feet making them feel like custom fit shoes, and they are so beautiful, I honestly cannot recommend these shoes enough!

Natalie Sling

The Natalie Flat is actually the first Sarah Flint shoe I purchased; back in early 2020 I saw someone wearing them in a magazine and I just feel in love with the shape of the shoe and the bow detail. I was so excited this past spring when they released the Natalie Sling! It’s the perfect spring to summer to fall shoe, and depending on your weather, I feel like you could even wear it during the winter months as well. These shoes are comfortable right out of the box; they have 360 padding {you will feel like you are walking on a cloud}, a rubber forepart to prevent slipping, and adjustable strap, and a hidden elastic right behind the buckle. I honestly think that everyone needs at least one pair of Natalie slings in their closet!

Parker Flat

I was so excited a few weeks ago when Sarah Flint decided to bring back the Parker! I love this shoe so much, I bought it twice {it comes in navy & black}! I love the elegant vintage feel the Parker style has to it; it definitely feel like a shoe Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn would have worn. For me this shoe was comfortable right from the start, it has extra padding and the fabric is just a dream!

Perfect Emma

My mom actually influenced me to purchase these pumps, she tells everyone that these heels are so comfortable that they feel like running shoes, and she is not wrong… I love how the block heel on these shoes is slightly inset so it doesn’t look as heavy as a regular block heel, and the anatomical arch support and padding is just everything. You will love this heel!

Perfect Pump 85

I usually avoid wearing heel/pumps at all cost, but I actually find myself reaching for these. Before I started working with Sarah Flint, I only owned four pair of heels… I hate when shoes are uncomfortable, and if I could avoid wearing heels to something, depending on the season, I would either wear a nice pair of boots or a dressy pair of sandals. I now have three pumps in this particular style… the extra padding, slightly wider toe box, and the anatomical arch support makes all the difference! I cannot recommend this pump enough!! If you have a narrow foot, I would recommend wearing your usually size, but if you have a normal width or wide foot, I would go up ½ a size.

 

Remember to use code: SARAHFLINT-BALAURENAID for $50 off your first pair of Sarah Flint shoes!!!

Sunday Night Thought

 

Links I'm Loving

 Is today really the last day of July? I feel like 2022 is moving right along. I am definitely going to savor the days of August and early September, but I am so ready for a nice fall breeze to sweep through my hair. For now, here are a few favorite links I have come across over this past week!

One// Sarah Flint New Arrivals

Earlier in the week Sarah Flint released four pair of shoes from their early fall collection and they are all completely swoon worthy. Personally, I have my eye on the Perfect Block Sandal 60! Use code: SARAHFLINT-BALAURENAID for $50 off a shoe of your choice!!

 

Two// Mare_Kell & Paris Hilton

Mary {or better know as {mare_kell on Instagram} is actually married to one of my old high school/lifeguard friends. I have only met her once or twice, but they are both so nice and creative/talented, and her Instagram account is so entertaining. If you’re having a bad day just look up @mare_kell on Instagram and you will be laughing in no time!

 

Three// Rifle Paper Co. x Summersalt

I have been in love with Rifle Paper Co. designs for year and I was so excited to learn that they teamed up with Summersalt for a collaboration. If you dreamy florals are your thing, you definitely need to checkout their new collection. Use code: LAURENJS10 for $10 towards your Summersalt purchase!

 

Four// Claire Saffitz Pigs In A Blanket

If you are a child of the 90s then pigs in a blanket probably holds a special place in your heart, and more than likely, you still love them! I think I will probably stick with the old school pigs in a blanket recipe {less time involved}, but I love the version Claire Saffitz came up with! This is definitely a next level version!

 

Five// Southern Living Tiny House

I’m not sure I could actually live in a tiny house, but I love seeing how people decorate them, the storage ideas they come up with, and how they make the most of their space. Southern Living has come up with some beautiful Tiny House inspiration!!

The Paris Apartment

 I have read two other Lucy Foley books, ‘The Guest List’ and ‘The Hunting Party’, and I must confess, I was not a big fan of either of these books. When Foley’s most recent book, ‘The Paris Apartment’ came out I was pretty hesitant to read it, and wasn’t really planning to, but I kept seeing ‘The Paris Apartment’ pop up on social media, so I eventually gave in and bought a copy… I am pleasantly surprised to say that I actually enjoyed this book much better than ‘The Guest List’ and ‘The Hunting Party’. 

After losing her job, ‘Jess’ goes to Paris to stay with her half-brother, Ben, for a little while, but things take an odd and unexpected turn once Jess arrives in Paris. When Jess arrives at Ben’s apartment she discovers that Ben isn’t home and believes he might be missing due to some of the personal items he left behind in his apartment.

 

The longer Ben is missing the deeper Jess digs into her brother’s situation, leading her to have more questions, and at times causing her to feel confused. All of Ben’s neighbors seem to know some Jess doesn’t, and each has a secret of their own, only adding more to the mystery and confusion. 

 

Would definitely recommend this book; The Paris Apartment would make for a great beach read! Even though I like this book more than Foley’s other two books I have read, I will say that if you really weren’t a fan of ‘The Guest List’ or ‘The Hunting Party’, I would not recommend this book for you… Otherwise, if you have not read a Foley book before or are a fan of hers, I would totally recommend this one!

Nordstrom Sale Favorites

 The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale just might be my most favorite sale of the entire year. With the current heat wave that has hit everyone, who isn’t dreaming of crisp fall days, outerwear, and cozy sweaters… 

The Nordstrom Sale has so many great fall staples and fashion pieces included in this sale! It is the perfect opportunity to collect a few wardrobe staple, expand your fashion pieces, and as crazy as it sounds… even do a little {very advanced} Christmas shopping! Here are a few of my favorite pieces included in the sale!



Vince Camuto Teritin Pointed Toe Slingback Pump// Within the past few months slingbacks have become one of my most favorite type of shoe. Whether they are flats are heels, slingbacks are simply timeless. The color of these heels are just so beautiful and I love how the material makes them the perfect transition shoe for summer to fall or winter to spring!

 


Spanx Faux Leather Leggings// I have been wanting to purchase a pair of faux leather leggings for the longest time and finally did the other night! They haven’t arrived yet, but when they do I will do a review for you all! These are the exact faux leather leggings I ordered, and I love how they look in the pictures. Planning on wearing these this fall with boots and an oversized sweater!

 


Barefoot Dreams Cozy Chic Lite Circle Cardigan// I have a friend who purchased the shorter version of this cardigan during last year’s sale and she completely loved the cardigan. When I saw the long version of the cardigan is included in this year’s sale I clicked “Add to Bag” without any hesitations. I own a few Barefoot Dreams blankets, and I simply cannot wait to try out their cardigan! 

 


Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Kit// I was a little late hopping onto the Charlotte Tilbury bandwagon, but I am 100% on it now and completely love all their products! The Kits that are included in this Sale are always such a great deal!

 


Bobbi Brown Extra Lip Tint Duo Set// This is another one of my Nordstrom Sale purchases that I made right away! I feel like this usually only goes on sale for Black Friday, but luckily it is included in the sale this year! I am obsessed with Bobbi Brown’s lip duo; so moisturizing and I love the color of the tinted one!

 


Longchamp Le Pliage Expandable Tote// Whenever I fly, this is the bag I use for carry-on. I love the fact that it is durable so I don’t have to worry about something happening to it and if something were to happen to it I can easily replace. I also love the fact that it is expandable! I always trying to have extra packing for the return trip, because what is a vacation without some shopping…

 


Ray-Ban 53mm Polarized Phantos Sunglasses// I have a world of sunglasses, so I haven’t given in and purchased these yet, but they are definitely calling my name… these sunglasses are such an amazing deal {marked down almost $30!} and so classic!

 


Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum Set// I know this is such a popular scent and I am probably being cliché in saying that this is my favorite fragrance, but it is! Again, any time something is available in a set it is always such a great deal! 

 


Ted Baker Yaleapp Bow Flat Sandal// Honestly, who can resist a classic sandal with an understated bow? This sandal comes in both black and white and is such a great piece to use for a day to night look!

 


Club Monaco Melissah Knit Long Sleeve Midi Dress// I have so many dresses and I am, so I’m trying to stay strong, but I will probably purchase this one… I just love the classic lines of this dress and the fact that it is something you can dress up or down!

 


Barbour Constable Quilted Longline Jacket// Love everything about this jacket! In my opinion, Barbour Jackets are things that will last you a lifetime and so worth the investment. I love how this particular one has more of a famine flair to it, and the lines and details of this jacket are just so timeless

 


Bernardo Houndstooth Blazer// I have a major soft spot for a blazer of any kind. The houndstooth pattern on this jacket paired with the slightly longer cut just really makes it a stunning piece!
