A Few Exciting Updates

First of all, I am so happy I have made it to the weekend.  I have been running from one event to the next this week and I can't wait for everything to calm down!  Of course, with all the running around, I have caught a cold once again; luckily, it looks like I am in the last stages and will be recovering soon!

With all of that said, I have a few very exciting updates for everyone!


First of all, I am getting my blog redesigned.  As much as I love the preppy style, I think I am growing out of the look and want something a little more professional.  Here is a hint of what is to come: Navy, Gold, and Black!

Secondly, the Undeniable Report is on Bloglovin'!  Anna and I honestly don't know how it happened, but we are hoping it will be a great way to gain more followers.  If your on Bloglovin' make sure to follow Undeniable for all the latest updates :)

And lastly, I got a new job at... drum roll please... Anthropologie!  I interviewed for the job in early October and I am so happy that I got the job.  To start I am just a seasonal hire; however, I am hoping that I will get to come back on board in the spring!  I think this new job is going to be great for me and I already love the women who work there!

How was your week?  Any exciting updates?

Braving the Cold

I think all of us here in Ohio were super surprised by the early snow, which I have no complaints about whatsoever; however, with the cold hitting earlier this year, I have had to bundle up more and more each day just to make it from the school parking lot into school!  Since many of you are experiencing early winters this year, I thought I would share some great cold weather essentials!
A good pair of mittens, a scarf, a cute hat, and a coat are what I have been wearing on a daily basis.  I also recommend purchasing a good pair of boots if you live in a colder, snowy area.  I have had my Hunter boots for about three years and they are perfect for the snow!

What are your cold weather essentials?

After sharing these cute slippers in my first holiday gift guide of the year, I wanted to look a little more in to Freckle Fox Boutique, and I love them!  They have such great gift items including tons of fun monograms, cute organizers, and girly art prints that would be perfect for any desk collage.  Here are a few of my favorites from Freckle Fox!

Getting Cozy

Over the weekend, it actually snowed!  It was a little bit lot of snow, and I was super excited; however, with the cold weather finally kicking in, I was perfectly content to curl up on the couch and watch a movie with Seth.  This cardigan from Pockets and Lace made me even more comfy and cozy for my weekend in.
Pockets and Lace has a great array of cardigans and sweaters, each of which are ideal for the upcoming winter and holiday season.  I personally like this, this, and this!

And, Frannie created a code just for my readers!  When you use the code PREPBLOG you can get %15 off of your entire purchase.  Make sure you stock up for the holidays because the boutique is starting to sell items out fast!

What is your go-to cozy look?

Rainy Day Linkup

 
Well, it isn't raining here, but it's snowing!  Luckily Seth and I took pictures right before the big storm hit.  I was so excited when Connie asked me to join her linkup because I absolutely love working with other bloggers!  Here is my Rainy Day look!

For the linkup, we were also given these questions to answer!

1. What's your favorite way to keep warm on a rainy day?  My favorite way to keep warm on a rainy day is to cuddle up by the fire, with Seth of course!

2. Are you a hood, umbrella, or both kind of girl?  I definitely love umbrellas!  I really want to get a clear one like this.

3. What is your best hair tip for a rainy day?  I have never really had issues with my hair on rainy days; however, I do recommend brushing your hair if it gets wet in the rain-- it tends to dry a lot smoother if I do that!

4. What's your favorite thing to do on a rainy day? My favorite thing to do a rainy day is go to Starbucks or stay in and watch movies!

To join in on this fun link up you can either go to Connie or Michaela's blog!

Holiday Dress Guide: Under $100

Now that it is getting close to Thanksgiving, I have already started planning for the holiday season.  I have a gift list ready for when I go shopping, my wrapping paper picked out, and the perfect gift cards for all of my family and friends; however, I am still lacking the perfect holiday gown.

Since I don't have tons to spend on a holiday dress, I thought I would throw together a dress guide for under $100.  I give a huge thanks to my friends for helping me find this great site, Tobi.  I problem should have known about this site a long time ago, considering everyone at my school gets homecoming dresses there haha.  But anyway, here is my holiday dress guide for this year's holiday festivities!
 1/2/3/4/5/6

If you couldn't tell, I am loving navy and red for the holidays.  What is great about these colors is they can be worn again and again, without ever going out of style.  My personal favorites are three and five-- velvet is such a fun fabric for the holidays!

Have you found your holiday dress?

Gift Guide: For Friends Under $50

I cannot believe how close we are getting to Thanksgiving!  I don't know about you, but whenever we pass Halloween I get into full holiday spirit, which includes gift giving.  Giving gifts is one of my favorite parts of the holiday, so I thought creating a little gift guide would be a perfect way to start off the holiday season.  For this gift guide, I put together some great gifts for friends under $50!

 

All of these are great gifts for friends.  My two favorites are the slippers and the mug-- I know all of my friends would love them!

Also, make sure you pair any of your gifts with a great card!  I love Treat because you can personalize any of your holiday cards with pictures and cute sayings and wishes for the holiday season.  I featured two of my personal favorite friend cards in the guide above!

What are your go-to Christmas gifts?  Have you tried Treat for your holiday cards?

P.S. This is my first time using Photoshop for my collages and I think I am really liking the product!  Now I just need to improve my symmetry haha.

My First Peach

Last week, I bought my first item from Peach and I must say I am in love.  This new Gabriella Rocha scarf is sure to be a staple in my fall wardrobe!  It is so comfy, warm, and the perfect plaid scarf.  The best thing is that I got a great deal on it-- I only paid $39 versus the regular $50!  Although it isn't too much, it still saved me ten dollars and you can save even more on designer items that retail around $1000, which is a major save for collectors and fashionistas alike.  Here is how I styled my new scarf!

If you would like to try Peach, let me know and I can send you an invite-- It is definitely worth it!

Have you tried Peach?  What did you win?

Summer Formal to Fall Casual

Over the summer, I scored this great dress from L.Mae Boutique; however, I didn't have much to wear it to.  It is definitely a more formal dress, so I was determined to find a way to make more wearable, since I love it so much.  Now that it is fall, I thought the perfect way to dress this dress down was to add a cozy cardigan, my favorite fall pumps, and a bold necklace.  The outfit is still dressy casual, but I will get much more wear out of it that way!

Thanks to L.Mae for such a great dress!  If you have never purchased from L.Mae, you need to-- they have some of the best pieces and some great closet staples!

How do you dress down your favorite dress?
