I am always on the search for pieces that are classy, edgy, and sophisticated at the same time. The Lowell structured layer dress in whiskey by Addison is the perfect example. It is perfectly shaped and totally timeless, something I know I can still wear five years from now. I also love how it comes with a layering separate with colorblocked sleeves which is also an essential. I paired it with a plated mini crossbody bag by Foley+Corinna with the most gorgeous teal mallard pony to add a touch of color to this neutral outfit. Since my look is on the minimal side, I piled on some Jenny Bird jewelry as well as some of my other favorite metals to dress it up a little. Speaking of Jenny Bird, I have partnered up with this amazing jewelry designer to give you a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to shop at www.jenny-bird.com. See details below on how to enter!

This Animal Kingdom cardigan by Knitted Dove truly is the best of both worlds. Colorblock and animal print, how can one resist? The merlot and beige look amazing together and I love how the print is of all and not just one kind of animal, it sort of reminds me of animal crackers and that's a good thing! I paired it with a peter pan collar blouse, black high waisted jeans, lovely laser cut flats from Irene's Story, and my new Coach Willis bag.

It is that time of the year again when all I want to wear are tartan prints, sequins, and anything else that resemble holiday decorations! Dressing like wrapping papers (in a good way of course) might be my guilty pleasure. Isn't this tartan pinafore playsuit from Ark the cutest thing ever? I layered it with a soft vintage mohair sweater with a bow and this super cozy jacket from F21. As for the accessories, the print-loving me wore some polkadot tights to go with the tartan, these awesome brown and clear ombre sunglasses, matching satchel to bring the tan and red together, and my beloved Topshop strappy leather booties. I am feeling the holiday spirit, are you?

A couple of weeks ago I gave you a tour of my bedroom (you can check it out here in case you missed it), now it is time to show you my living room! I recently got some new pillows and throw so I decided to change up the frames on the wall to make it all more cohesive. Totally digging this black, cream, and gold color scheme! I get to keep my vintage flair and be chic and modern at the same time. I couldn't help it but to wear black and white to match my decor! I am wearing a striped sweater from Irene's Story, etched floral jeans from 7 For All Mankind, and these very Celine-esque platformed wedges from Wholesale7.

November has been lovely so far, the air is crisp and the weather is finally getting cold. I am so excited for fall accessories and all the layering possibilities! Today's look is all about the adornments. I have always loved tapestry so of course this jacket by Black Swan would caught my eyes with its beautiful floral tapestry and embroidered trim. I layered it with a vintage silk blouse that has the greatest triple collars! Hey, third time's the charm! I paired it with a black velvet skirt, sheer dotted tights (to match the little swiss dots on the blouse), and a gorgeous embroidered and studded bag by Isabella Fiore. I don't know about you but I am just loving all these details!

Summer might be over but don't put away your floral dresses just yet! You can layer a cute blouse underneath a dress to bear the cold weather just like how I've done here. This floral dress by Darling is truly darling, how appropriate! I love that dusty grayish lavender with the purple, coral, and mustard! Muted floral print is perfect for fall. I layered a sheer beige blouse with double collars underneath and accessorized with a vintage gray leather belt. Lastly, I brought out the warmer tones of the dress with a lovely tassel tote from Handbag Heaven and these go-with-absolutely-everything leather pumps by Swedish Hasbeens. On a slightly different note, here's a fun fact... I can't never achieve a jumping shot but I believe I have finally mastered the spin. :)

It has been a long time since I've done a food post, so here it is! Lately I can't stop making crepes for breakfast. It is so easy, delicious, and pretty to look at! You can also use whatever fruits you want but my favorites are strawberries and raspberries.

What you need:
1 cup of Bisquick
3/4 cup of milk
2 eggs
Butter
Nutella
Raspberries
Whipped cream

In a large bowl, mix together the Bisquick, milk and eggs until smooth. Heat a pan over medium high heat, add butter, pour about 1/4 cup of batter into the pan and tilt to spread it evenly to cover the pan. Cook until firm and slightly golden, flip the crepe over and while the other side is browning, spread nutella and add raspberries (or your choice of fruits). Fold it in half and put it on a plate. Add some whipped cream and throw a couple of pieces of raspberries on top to make it pretty! Yum!
