Sweater Weather: 5 under $50

Falling autumn temps call for cozy sweaters! I've pulled together a few of my favorite finds at ASOS, all under $50. Seeing a trend? I love the neutral colors and slouchy look of these sweaters. Perfect for leaf peeping, romping around a pumpkin patch or lounging on the couch. 

Mother may I? Have all of them!?

This Weeks: 5 under $50

Temps are falling and my need to get cozy is a priority. I'm loving this H&M chunky-knit turtleneck sweater, it has my name all over it (and it is $13, people!). Protect your eyes with a pair of fun sunnies, you don't want your leaf-peeping pursuits interrupted by the glare of the sun. Straight-leg jeans pair well with a slouchy knit. I especially love these jeans from Old Navy with a raw hem. Got errands to run? Throw on this wool-blend baseball cap and tie your hair in a low pony, so easy! Lastly, who doesn't love a classic shade of light pink nail polish? One of my favorite brands, Deborah Lippman, now makes gel polish.

Aspen Leaves Home Decoration

Bring a slice of the season into your home! While hiking a couple weeks ago, I picked up a fallen aspen leave bundle and made it into a quick centerpiece. Before you put in a vase, dry the leaves hanging upside-down for a few days. Add in some dried flowers or other floral. I used baby's breath. It's cheap and has great texture! 

Here are a few vases (all under $50!) that I adore:

H&M Mid-Season Sale: 5 under $50

H&M sales are borderline ridiculous -- merchandise as low as $3? It's unbelievable. And, a great chance to refresh your wardrobe in between seasons. Fall is definitely here. The challenge? Try to stretch some of your summer clothes into fall and winter by adding a few signature pieces.

A few items caught my eye. 

How about this structured blush bag? Love the structure and size. Very practical for work and play! The blue blouse looks timeless and sophisticated with the over-sized bow. The black mid-length jacket is a perfect go-to for cooler weather. Great to pair with jeans or a statement trouser. The silver stack mules are just about the opposite of practical but they are damn cute! And a sequin shift dress will take you straight into holiday party season. Plus $150 down to $50, sold!

Neutrogena Skin Care Kick

Photos by Coloured Ink

I've been on a total Neutrogena skin care kick. I love their day/night serums, SPF 30+ moisturizers, overnight repair creams, the list goes on! My skin is pretty sensitive and I've had zero problems with breakouts, redness, irritation, etc.

Give your skin a drink with Neutrogena's hydroboost gel/serum. The major bonus? Affordability and convenience. Shop at Target, your local drugstore or Costco/Sam's Club.

Get on the Neutrogena skin care train.

Spring Style: Suns out, Funs out!

 Spring is here! Time to dress the part. Pull out those white jeans from the back of your closet and give them whirl. Pair with a fun top – I love a good peplum. The band around the waist is figure-flattering and feminine. Add easy accessories like diamond or pearl studs and your favorite watch. Reach for a bag with some colorful flare to complete the look. A military-inspired utility jacket is the perfect layer for the season. You never know if or when you’ll get caught in the rain!

Rachel Zoe Box of Style: Winter 2015

Photos by Loreah Winlow Photography
In honor of the Rachel Zoe Box of Style Spring 2016 arriving any day on my doorstep, I'll share how amazing the Winter 2015 Box of Style was (delivered early December 2015). 

The Rachel Zoe Box of Style is my first (and only) subscription service I'm enrolled in. I know friends live and die for Ipsy, Birchbox and BarkBox (got to give the fur babies some love), but my heart is true to Box of Style. The delivery arrives in a super sturdy black box. I'm collecting the boxes alone to store holiday ornaments and other household trinkets. The items received each quarter are on-trend, practical and remarkably posh.

It's hard to say which products were my favorite from the winter box, I use all of them. And I gifted one item away!

The box is $100 per quarter with over $300 of product enclosed. Rachel Zoe and her team clearly turn their wheels to score the most impressive garb -- like La Mer concentrate and designer sunglasses/jewelry.

Be surprised and delighted every season with Rachel Zoe's Box of Style!

Home Style with Citrus

On a budget and ready to add some style to your home? Play around with citrus! Go to your local farmers market or supermarket and pick up fresh seasonal fruit. Cuties, lemons and limes are my favorite. While you're there, snag fresh eucalyptus or other fresh greenery from the floral department. 

Grab a serving tray or decorative bowl to display the fruit and greenery. Use your new arrangement as a centerpiece on your dining room table, coffee table or kitchen counter. The best part? Your arrangement is edible! Invite friends over for fresh margaritas or a citrus spritzer when you're done looking at your masterpiece!

The pictured IKEA tray is my go-to for many household decorative and serving needs. I actually own two of them. And, only $11.

Easy-peasy citrus squeezy.

First line of business, coffee. 
Second line of business ... how much do you love this tote from Target? I bought it last summer so it's no longer available. But, the good news is that Target is starting to sell some fun new bags for spring. There's a million and one ways to use and style a tote so find one that suits you and use it to your hearts content.

P.s. I love this long, cozy sweater and I pretty much live in these Madewell straight leg boyfriend jeans. Also, these Nine West pumps are the closest thing you'll get to a wear-all-day pump. So if you're in the market for a classic black pump, I highly recommend.

If you know me, you know I wear this jacket, a lot! I bought it clearance-on-clearance at Nordstrom Rack a couple of years ago. It is a staple in my closet and a go-to for almost any occasion. I love the fringe detail, texture and length of the jacket. When in doubt, go for a denim + t-shirt + jacket combo. You will not fail!

Floral pumps and statement earrings complete the look.
