The Perfect Little Faux Fur Vest...Paired with Lace

I am such a sucker for a great faux fur vest (well, faux fur anything actually). You have seen me style this textile year after year, and I have to say, this crop vest from cabi Clothing is perfection! Sure, I have loved longer vests in the past, but this one hits you in all the right places allowing your natural curves to show. Plus, it has fabric on both sides, taking the bulk off and making it that much more flattering on all body types. I apologize in advance because this beauty is going to be a repeat offender. I mean, if you take away the fact that it's style design is flawless, then you are left with the blue hues... which can I just say, is color perfection!

And then we have the lace. Oh how I love lace! Doesn't it just make everything more dainty and beautiful. I was so excited when Kaitlyn put this top in our latest swap bag. It's a beautiful blouse to begin with, then you add in that lace detail and the buttons. Did you see those buttons? Beautiful..but I digress. Everyone needs a few blouses in their wardrobe, they are super usable pieces to own. It was fun to play dress up with this one, I also liked styling it with jeans and flats. ;)

Denim Obsession

If you know me, then you know I am a sucker for great denim. I have more pairs of jeans then I can count on two hands, and about five denim jackets at this point. What? That's totally normal (for a blogger maybe). ;)  Silver Jeans recently sent me these crop, raw-edge jeans and this amazing oversized jacket and I couldn't be more excited to own either.  I mean...denim perfection people! Side note, anyone else obsessing over the new raw-edge jeans trend? I absolutely love it and how this detail really changes up (or gives a bit more attitude to) a super basic look, such as jeans and a tee.

Recipe: Sriracha Dip

If you know me (or have ever had a meal with me), then you know I am a lover of all things spicy. I have to admit, Sriracha is added to my food daily and I'm not mad about it! When I was at a dinner party at my neighbors last fall, this dip was served and I could not get enough of it. Since then, I have tried many variations of this recipe as when you look up "Sriracha dip" on google, many recipes come up. Some of them have mayo, some have lemon, some just ranch seasoning, below is a recipe I came up with after many attempts. They all turned out good, but this one is great! I give you my version of Sriracha dip.

My Overall Love For Stripes

My overall love for stripes (see what I did there with the title?) ;) I love a good play on words. Another thing I love? Stripes! They are a pattern that literally never go out of style which makes it easy to pick up stripe items year after year. I do find myself insisting that I put stripe items back as I always gravitate towards them, that said, when I was this OTS top with the unique neckline I just had to have it! Plus it was on sale for under $25 so what's not to love?

We've all heard about wearing your hubby or boyfriends pants and button-up shirts, but I'm here today to tell you about sharing your accessories with them as well! Personally, I love a great boyfriend style watch, which honestly just means it's a larger, more relaxed fit on the ladies. In the past, I've actually purchased boyfriend style watches and now it's got me thinking, should I be sharing those with him? But I digress....It honestly was a no brainier when Jord asked me to collaborate and I saw how many gorgeous new styles they have added in the past year. I was able to choose which watch I wanted, and this one just screamed unisex. I mean, sharing is caring so why not get a watch that you both love to style?

I have worked with Jord in the past and I am doing so again because I love how unique their timepieces are. They are such a high quality and I love how unexpected a wood watch is. They have a wide variety of styles for both men and women, plus a few unisex styles as well. If you are in the market for a new watch, enter the contest below! One lucky winner will receive $100 to get their own Jord watch, plus I even have a $25 off code for anyone who feels like shopping. It goes without saying these watches would make a great gift. Use the code in the next four days and get the discount!
