Another day, another vest. This one takes the cake though. I had this in my Rack It Up closet for weeks, until one random Tuesday, it went on sale. I frantically logged in and with some luck, managed to snag the very last one. My computer crashed right afterwards, which was probably the result of my manic clicking to get it secured in my cart. Whatever, it worked.

A menswear-inspired vest has been on my list forever. I love the glen plaid on this vest and the single-button placket is awesome because it gives me two ways to wear it. If you like the look of this vest, try the Topshop Sleeveless Split Coat. It has a similar look and the price is really good. I also love this Nordstrom vest for a great, drapey look.

If you haven't scoped out Rack It Up yet, head on over right now. Create a closet of your favorite items and then sit back, relax, and wait for an email from them when anything in your closet goes on sale. It's magic.

Bora Bora

Monday, October 27, 2014


Grace Bay Beach in Turks and Caicos
Today we officially take off for Bora Bora. I am in full support of the delayed honeymoon for this exact reason. It's been exciting to look forward to this day and now that it's here, we are going to seriously unplug. There will be a new outfit post tomorrow, but for the most part, I am going to remain off the grid. Make sure to check back on Monday, November 3rd because I have a fantastic guest blogger for ya. My Friday Pick of the Week will resume when I get back too. Although it's not that unlikely to find me online shopping on a remote beach, I'm going to try and lock it up. At least for a week or two.

See you tomorrow,

Pick of the Week: Gap Turtleneck Sweater

Friday, October 24, 2014



Gap is having crazy markdowns right now and there are a few sweaters that you need to know about. I have the Turtleneck Sweater Tunic folded up in my drawer as we speak, just waiting for it to get cooler outside. This sweater has side slits with an awesome curved hem that is longer in the back. It's a great sweater to wear with your super skinny jeans or leggings this Fall. The price on this sweater can't be beat either. $51.99. Fact: that's technically less than two Philadelphia parking tickets. Just to put things in perspective.

Here are three more of my favorite Gap sale sweaters

Our Bloggers Who Budget collaboration this month is to style one of our favorite Fall pieces under $60. I snagged this Gap sweater a week or so ago for less than thirty-five bucks. I'm a sucker for anything slouchy and especially one that is soft and a great deal. I really love the look of an over-sized sweater tucked in with straight or skinny jeans. This sweater runs true-to-size, but go up one size if you want it super slouchy. My fedora is from Madewell and I suggest you try this one on. The quality is great and you can't go wrong with the gorgeous dark brown color. If I didn't have such a small head, I would have bought this one too.

Next month marks one year of our #BloggersWhoBudget collaboration. I'm excited that we have continued the series (and also that I found Ariana to help up my photo game.)

Want to join in on the fun? The Bloggers Who Budget collab will now be open for you to link up with us starting next month. Our theme for November 17th will be "Mad for Plaid" with a budget of $75 and under. If you have your own budget style, we want to see your look too!

Looking forward to linking up with you in November,

Pick of the Week: Old Navy Turtleneck

Friday, October 17, 2014



This Old Navy Jersey Turtleneck is eleven dollars. Eleven freakin dollars. They come in seven different colors in a super-soft jersey stretch material. Lightweight turtlenecks are perfect for layering under just about everything. Wearing one under your favorite sleeveless dress is a great way to get more wear out of pieces that you already own. I plan on grabbing a few of these bad boys, especially the one in navy stripe (shown above).

Our monthly #BloggersWhoBudget collab is back on Monday. We are styling our favorite Fall products that are under $60. Don't miss it.

It's time to re-visit that pricey pair of denim you have been lusting after or those heels you just couldn't quite pull the trigger on. If you've thought to yourself, "I'd buy these if they were on sale", then it's time to act my friend. 

I got so excited about this sale that I included a few Rag & Bone pieces, which I just realized are not part of the sale. My bad. However, Rag & Bone Jean is included. Boom. You have until 11:59pm on October 16th to enjoy 25% off on full-price and sale items. Let the games begin.
