Fuzzy Pink Coat













I am all about adding fun items to my closet, and the best way to add a fun statement to your winter wardrobe is through a coat. However, most winter coats can be outrageously pricy, which is why I always check out Shein for inexpensive yet ultra fashionable pieces. When I spotted this pink fuzzy coat, I knew it had to be mine. It is a STEAL at less than $25! You think I'm joking...I'm honestly still baffled myself at how something this cute can be at such an amazing price. Happy shopping! I promise you will walk away with so much and your wallet will still love you.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

DC's Newest Way to Shop














I have said multiple times that I would pay extra for the mall to close down so I could just shop by myself. There is nothing that makes me more stressed out than a crowded mall...shopping should be a fun and relaxing experience, right? A couple of weeks ago I was introduced to the newest way to shop in Washington D.C., Shop Refine.

Shop Refine is an appointment-based boutique with not just the usual brands you'd find in department stores. They are open and available when you need them--and will even bring samples right to your home! Need an outfit for an event? Shop Refine will even shop for you and find the perfect pieces. It is the prefect way to shop without all the stress of going to the mall and sifting through racks!

I cannot wait for my next shopping experience with Shop Refine! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Holiday Style: The Perfect Poncho










*Photos by Jenn
Club Monaco poncho, Madewell corduroys (these are identical and under $50!), Michael Kors boots (identical), Prada handbag, Lydell NYC cuff, David Yurman ring

My favorite pieces of clothing? The ones that look ultra chic but feel far too comfortable to be deemed acceptable to wear in public. This poncho is definitely one of those pieces!! I scored it on major sale during Black Friday and know it will be a staple in my holiday wardrobe. I've linked some of my other favorite (and affordable!) ponchos below.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and Northern Virginia ladies, don't forget to enter my Kendra Scott giveaway!!

Kendra Scott Reston, Virginia Opening & Giveaway!













Today is a super exciting day because the new Kendra Scott Reston, Va. location is officially open! There will be an amazing opening party this Saturday, December 12th and you get a free pair of Danielle earrings in Black Iridescent with every $50 purchase. Hope to see you there! 

One of my favorite things about Kendra Scott is that the brand really makes themselves one with the community.  Kendra Gives Back is a philanthropy initiative that allows you to host an event at your local Kendra Scott store and they give 20% of the sales to benefit your cause.

This outfit was inspired by Kendra Scott's newest collection, Mirror Mirror. I am obsessed with all the gunmetal pieces, and especially this necklace, which actually has a mirror under the crystal which is what makes the texture so interesting!

With the exciting new store opening, we wanted to do a special giveaway for all of my local readers! Use the widget below to enter to win a Color Bar Party at the new Reston, Va. location for you and four friends! The winner gets to design a custom Color Bar piece and you and your friends will receive 15% off your purchase, plus yummy sips and sweets! Good luck!


*Thank you Kendra Scott Reston, Va. for partnering with me for this post.

Rose Gold at Sunset










As you could probably tell from these photos, it was freezing when we took them! I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving. I decided to take a little break from social media to focus on spending time with my family. Did you indulge in any of the Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals? I certainly did and might need to put myself on a little spending freeze, ha! In case you missed it, there are still a few sales going on, check it out here.

Thanks for stopping by!
