HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
Hope you all are having an amazing week.  

So sorry for the lack of outfit posts this week, 
I have been down for the count with my semi-annual sinus/ear infection combo.  
Hopefully things will be back to normal ASAP!

In the mean time, one of my favorite things to do while sitting at home sick is to shop online.  
So here you have it- my top picks from Groopdealz this week!

Which one is your favorite?

bloggers give back


One of the best things about this time of year is family.  

Something about the season brings families closer together to celebrate- bonfires, hayrides, trick-or-treating, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and even New Year's!  

It is a time to be thankful for all of life's blessings, and a time to help those in need.

Enter Jalynn from "The Red Closet Diary," and creator of "Bloggers Give Back." 
I was elated when she contacted me and asked me to be apart of this amazing charity!


We are raising money for two adorable little boys, Carson and Beckham, who have had the misfortune of being diagnosed with cancer and are continuing the fight. 
You can read more about their journeys here.

Their stories are particularly near and dear to my heart for two reasons.  First of all, as a Memphian, my family and I work very closely with the Ronald McDonald House via St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  Nothing is more heart breaking than seeing families struggling with the illness of a loved one.  Secondly, as an elementary school teacher, I cannot imagine one of my sweet babies dealing with this disease.

Jalynn, myself, and several other bloggers are joining forces to help raise money for these boys and their families. With your support and help, we can help make this a wonderful Christmas for these families.  

Want to help?
Here's how!

We are trying to raise as much money as we can before December 6th!

1.) If you would like to donate, you can do so through the Paypal link on the Bloggers Give Back site, or at any local Wells Fargo bank under the name "Bloggers Give Back". 
All proceeds will go to the families of these children.

2.) Unfortunately I do not live in the area- but some of you might!
On November 9, 2013 in Lehi, Utah- Bloggers Give Back is throwing a "Shop Our Closet" Event to raise money for the two families.  Bloggers will be selling their clothing, and donating all proceeds to the families.  There will also be sponsors donating merchandise that will also be put towards the donations.
 
 If you cannot make it to the event, you are still able to donate clothing, which will be displayed with you and your blog's name!  


If you are a blogger, and would like to be involved, please feel free to share the link button on my side bar or spread the word through a blog post!

Thank you so much for all of your love and support- let's help create a Christmas MIRACLE!

Sincerely,

Striped Pencil Skirt- $15.00 (A TOTAL MUST CLOSET MUST HAVE- available in three colors!) | Enamel Bow Necklace- $3.99  | Gianna Luxe Necklace- $2.55 (available in more colors!) | Infinity Scarf- $11.99 (available in three colors!)
 
Today's picks from Groopdealz are all about increasing your closet staples! 

A striped jersey knit skirt is a definite "must" in my book required for pattern mixing.  
 
Both pieces of jewelry are so simple and classic- perfect for layering with other pieces.  
 
And I am really smitten with this infinity scarf- looks so much like one I saw at Club Monaco for literally a fraction of the price.
 
Happy shopping!
 
Thanks for reading, xo.

what i wore: sporty chic





Sweatshirt: Phillip Lim x Target | Dress (worn as a skirt): Forever 21 (similar here) | Shoes: SheInside (similar here) | Purse: Phillip Lim x Target | Necklace: Etsy | Sunnies: Amazon (original here) | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: Jcrew 1, Jcrew 2 (similar here), and Stella and Dot | Ring: Forternal




I have been drawn to dressing up and dressing down at the same time.
Sweatshirts + Bling seem to be the perfect equation to achieving this look!

what i wore: herringbone heaven





 
Turtleneck: Jcrew (old- similar here) | Vest: Jcrew Factory (no longer available- similar here) | Skirt: Kohl's (similar here) | Boots: Tory Burch (similar here and here) | Purse: Phillip Lim x Target | Sunnies: Amazon (original here) | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: Jcrew 1, Jcrew 2 (similar here), and Stella and Dot

So you have already seen a lot of this Phillip Lim for Target purse.  
That is because I love it.  
You also need to get ready to see a lot of this Jcrew Factory Herringbone Vest.  

I totally kicked myself last winter for not purchasing it.  
Lucky for me (and many of you I suspect), Jcrew believes in second chances!



And yes, I was photo bombed by my dog in the second picture.  
What a D-I-V-A!

what i wore: casual friday







Sweater: Two by Vince Camuto | Jeans: Thrifted Abercrombie + Fitch (similar here) | Scarf: ILY Couture (no longer available- similar here) | Glasses: Warby Parker | Shoes: Sole Society | Clutch: Clare Vivier | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: Jcrew 1, Jcrew 2 (similar here), and Stella and Dot | Ring: Forternal | Nails: China Glaze Make an Entrance


Not much glitz or glam in today's look- but this is probably how I dress 85% of the time.  I actually need glasses because of near sightedness, and was so thrilled when I ordered these Warby Parker glasses around this time last year.  I try to limit wearing them only to when I drive or I absolutely need them, but with my allergies actin' a fool this week, they were a must!  

And yes, you read that correctly.  
These jeans are Abercrombie and Fitch.  
Bringing it back to the glory days.....laugh it up!
I actually scooped these up about a month ago while thrift shopping. 
They have the perfect distressing, and they feel like I have owned them my entire life.  
I have been wearing them nonstop.

PS: I love these shoes, and I ordered them in black and red.  
Please note that if you order these, I strongly suggest that you order 
one size up, as they tend to run quite small.  
Other than that, they are uber comfortable and perfect for work!

PSS: Snatched up this sweater at Belk a few weekends ago
during the Chip + Pepper event- faux leather shoulder patches = total swoon. 

Sincerely,

what i wore: white rebel





Jacket: Wet Seal (similar here) | Chambray: Forever 21 | Jeans: Old Navy | Shoes: Ebay (original here) | Purse: Phillip Lim x Target | Sunnies: Amazon (original here) | Brooch: Chanel | Necklace: c/o VeryJane | Watch: Michael Kors | Ring: Forternal | Bracelets: Jcrew 1, Jcrew 2 (similar here), and Stella and Dot |  Nails: China Glaze Make an Entrance


We all know that the rule of "No White After Labor Day" is old news.
Yet, I still don't want to look like I am wearing summer clothes!

I decided to pair these white jeans with a classic chambray shirt with a camouflage utility jacket for a pop of fall colors.
Add a few black accessories, and voila-
you have a warm and easy to wear fall ensemble that incorporates your white jeans!

Sincerely,


what i wore: camo scarf






Jacket: LC Lauren Conrad (old- similar here) | Tee: Forever 21 | Jeans: Chip + Pepper x Belk | Shoes: Steve Madden | Bag: Phillip Lim x Target | Scarf: Body Shop (similar here) | Sunnies: Amazon (original here) | Lips: MAC Candy Yum Yum | Watch: Michael Kors | Ring: Forternal | Bracelets: Jcrew 1, Jcrew 2 (similar here), and Stella and Dot | Nails: China Glaze Make an Entrance



My mom bought this exact scarf a few months ago, except hers had a neon green accent stripe.  Of course I tried multiple times to steal it, but she wouldn't let me.  A few weeks later, I received a sweet care package in the mail with this scarf in it from my dear mom- the only difference is this scarf has a pink accent stripe!

We all know that camo is HUGE for this season, and camo accents are no exception.  Not everyone feels comfortable wearing a camo jacket or pants, but I have seen loads of camo accessories like scarves, shoes, purses, etc. that you could work into your everyday wardrobe for a subtle dash of the hot trend.
