Instagram Round-up

It's been awhile since I've done a round-up, so I decided finish out this week with one!  I am leaving for Florida tonight for a little birthday vaca, and I am so excited!! This weekend is going to be full of food, drinks, pool, girl-time, and last but definitely not least, Ms. Taylor Swift!! If you know me, you know I am a huge T-Swift fan and it's her last US concert on the tour, so I'm sure it will be nothing less than amazing.  I've been waiting for this since I went to her last concert in Chicago in July (haha).  I can't wait for a little R&R in the hot and sunny weather... the weather in Chicago has been miserable, rainy and cold everyday this week. 

These button-up suede skirts are to die for, and a lot of them don't break the bank (especially this one!)

suede skirt // tissue turtleneck // baublebar necklace- sold out (similar here) // chevron tights // booties // KS ring // phone case

I have an obsession with ponchos lately, and this houndstooth one definitely fits the bill!

I finally got my boyfriend to take me to a pumpkin farm, it was quite the experience!

I honestly think plaid and fur is one of the greatest combinations, and the over-the-knee boots are very "in" right now!

Elizabeth and James makes some of the best dresses for casual or dressy occasions!  Check out Rent The Runway for affordable ones you can rent for the night.

This romper from Rent The Runway is amazing and fits SO well!  I wish I could have kept it.

Happy Friday Eve!! xoxo

Ponchos, Ponchos and... more Ponchos!

Ponchos are this seasons biggest trend... and one of my favorite things about them is that they are SO comfortable.  With the weather we've been having lately in Chicago, they can almost be too warm, however once the temps drop- these will be the perfect item(s) to have hanging in your closet!  There are so many different styles and colors that it can be hard to pick just one! With ponchos, they are meant to be super baggy, however you do want to find one that fits your body-type.  The ones I found tend to fit any type and are super affordable, as some can range 200+!

On another note... the Tory Burch Private Sale started yesterday, and there are so many great things for up to 70% off!!  Loving this wallet and these Revas!  Get over there asap, sizes and items go SO fast.  I already missed out on a bunch of great things.

6pm Sweetest Day Sale!

If you are anything like me, then you love a good sale! (one of my all time favorite go-to for shoes) is having a one-time sale for Sweetest Day!  As a lot of you may know, 6pm rarely ever has sales on top of its already amazing prices, so this really is very sweet! :)

For 24 hours only, use code 'SWEETDAY1' to get 10% off* your entire purchase with absolutely no restrictions!  There are so many good boots on there that I just had to snag before the sizes all sold out.  This deal will be over before you know it, so get there now as sizes tend to go fast!

I wish I could have them all, but here are some of my fav's!

Shopbop Friends & Family Sale!

Today is one of my favorite times of the year because it marks the first day of the Shopbop Friends & Family sale!  I love this sale because there are not a ton of restrictions and they carry all of my favorite brands.  I first found out about Shopbop about 10 years ago when visiting my friends at UW-Madison (they have their only store front there).  From then on, I have become totally addicted!  Use the code 'INTHEFAM25' for 25% off your entire purchase.  Sadly, Tory Burch is restricted due to their own discounting system, but you can definitely stock up on all of the other amazing deals for fall and winter!

My favorites- currently holding myself back from buying them all!  The poncho and clutch are a must. :)

Happy Shopping!

Warby Parker 'Home Try-On Program'

I recently collaborated with Warby Parker on their 'home try-on program' and I must say I was truly impressed from start to finish!  Warby Parker is a glasses company based in New York that makes super affordable and super trendy eyeglasses and sunglasses.  All glasses start at $95 depending on the types of lenses you need, which is a steal now a days for designer-esque frames!  When I signed on to their website to start choosing my frames, I had such a hard time as I loved every pair!

How the program works:
- Pick out 5 frames from a selection of their favorites and best sellers.
- These 5 frames are shipped out for free to wherever you prefer.
- Once you receive the frames you have 5 business days to try them on (and get peoples opinions!)
- Choose the one (or all!) you like and order them directly on
- Send the trial glasses back using the pre-paid free shipping label, and wait for your fresh new beauties to arrive!

Here are the ones I chose and what I thought...

I loved the box they came in, all separated individually and labeled so you can see which ones you chose come to life!

My choices: HaskellOrmsbyRipleyReillyPiper

'Reilly' - Marzipan Tortoise

'Ormsby' - English Oak

'Ripley' - Whiskey Tortoise

'Piper' - Woodland Tortoise

'Haskell' - Burnt Lemon Tortoise

My Favorite: The 'Reilly' - These are super cute, affordable and classic. They went best with my skin tone and I loved the tortoise print!  Safe to say- I will most likely be living in these shades!

If you're in need of new glasses, head on over to Warby Parker now to start you're FREE 5 day trial!
