she said yes

My sister got engaged this past weekend and I could not be more excited! I was in on the surprise a few days before and knew I wanted to make a photo prop for these first photos as an engaged couple! The prop was a perfect addition and also provided a great photo to send on to friends and family to share the exciting news!

Ralph Lauren has done an amazing job for breast cancer awareness. The Pink Pony has become a symbol for inspiration and support.  I have always been a fan of shopping for a cause, and Ralph Lauren offers great incentives. Through October 10 save 25% on all purchases and 10% of all proceeds with go towards the Pink Pony Fund.

scent of fall

Once October hits, and the first fall day has arrived, I immediately bring out the pumpkins and sweaters. Even though the weather is still fluctuating I love the scent of fall, the fresh air and the crisp leaves. On a recent trip to the mall the smell of Bath and Body Work lured me in {I can’t tell you how many years it’s been since I have been in one}. I came across the perfect fall candle {leaves}, and it has since created an amazing fall aroma throughout my entire home.

puttin’ on the glitz

I saw this DIY and absolutely loved the idea, I had to share! I have been swooning over the Miu Miu booties below {obviously way out of my price range, but hey a girl can dream}. And I love the look of the suede booties I have been seeing all over. This DIY does the perfect mash-up of these two looks!

poncho {scarf}

I came across this poncho recently on Shopbop, and though it is a little pricier then I typically spend on trendy pieces, I absolutely love it! Anything that has multiple functions is worth it in my book! Not to mention perfect to travel with.

The Frye Harness boots have always been a favorite of mine, but I have never wanted to spend the money! I recently found a similar pair at Target! The style is exactly the same and once they get a little more worn in they will be almost identical.
