Happy Tuesday everyone! Last week was a busy one. Friday afternoon I attended the Collective Conference to support my fellow bloggers. Afterwards there was a networking cocktail hour where I got to see some new and familiar faces. Honestly, sometimes I am so shy to talk to people, and other times I have no fear in the world. Funny how that happens. If you ever see me and want to say hi, please don’t hesitate. I would love to meet you and chat.
Saturday morning I got to shoot some fall looks. Two include this new suede moto jacket that I am obsessed with. I try not to use that word very much (obsessed), but literally. This jacket is everything. Saturday afternoon my sister, Kelly, came over. We shot a few fun projects and I finally got to try out my new Canon 5D Mark II camera!! You can see some of the looks we shot over on my Instagram.
Sunday was both a lazy and a productive day. I spent the entire day in my pjs and still managed to get a lot of items checked off my list. Finished two projects that have been on my list for weeks. Shot some home decor photos which I’ll be posting on the blog very soon!! And managed to write, edit photos for this blog post. Even though I wanted to be completely lazy and do nothing all day. I think I have the coffee to thank for that 🙂 Sometimes it is hard to find motivation. I think it stems from being go go go all the time. So when I finally have a day where I don’t actually have to do anything, being productive just isn’t high on my priority list. You feel me?
Here is another wear to work look for you all. I recently wore these same pants with a different look here. For this ensemble I draped this chic pink cropped jacket over a chiffon shirt. Comfortable work pants like these are always a good investment because they match with everything and some days I just do not feel like wearing a skirt or a dress.
Also, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month – every Thursday in October, Ann Taylor will be donating 10% of entire in-store purchases from 5 PM to close and all day on online purchases to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation! Happy shopping!

You all know I love a bold lip color. It is part of my signature beauty look. Over the summer I got the chance to try the new lip stains from the Sephora Collection and I am OBSESSED. I wear them all the time and you’ve already seen my favorite colors featured in quite a few blog posts. I’ve gotten a chance to try a few other Sephora Collection items including their waterproof eyeliner, rouge shine lipstick, and waterproof contour eye pencil. The waterproof eyeliner is also a go-to for me since it stays on all day.
I’ve got some good news…The Sephora Collection is now going to be included at Sephora stores in JCPenney! And what is even better? This beauty line starts at just $10! Totally worth the money. Happy shopping ladies!

It was one of those crazy spontaneous weekends where nothing really goes as planned, but you have a blast anyway. Friday and Saturday night were spent celebrating Tony’s birthday. Then on Sunday my roommate and I took a little excursion to a local pumpkin patch. We also had a little carving party last night. I think we are going to make this a yearly tradition. My Halloween costume is also in the mail and I am very excited to see how all the pieces come together. Amazon hurry up please. I am dying to try it on!!
Tony and I chased down the sunset to get these photos before it got too dark. What we ended up with are these beautiful pink-tinted photos that perfectly matched this blush pencil skirt and matching sweater look from Ann Taylor.
