Look Book | Autumn Garden

Sweater: c/o Jigsaw London, Pants: AG Stevie via Anthropologie, Top: Free People Kombucha Thermal, Boots: Matt Bernson Tundra

Hello!  I'm home from Costa Rica!  We had the adventure of our lives!  We went zip-lining through the jungle, encountered monkey's and exotic birds, and went horseback riding on the beach.  So many laughs and memories I will cherish forever.  More than anything, I just enjoyed spending so much quality time with Marty.  Life gets so busy, it's such a treat to escape reality for awhile and get some alone time with my honey.

These pictures were taken from the house we rented in Costa Rica.  It was raining and cloudy all day, and this outfit seemed to fit the environment well.  Although we did get a lot of sunshine, it was nice to have a relaxing, rainy day at the house.

The amazingly soft and gorgeous sweater I'm wearing is from Jigsaw London.  It's my new go-to sweater for the chilly days of Fall and Winter.  If you haven't entered the Jigsaw London giveaway yet, you can enter to win $150 to spend at Jigsaw here.

Look Book | Love Potion

Sweater: Wildfox Sequin Love Potion, Pants: Citizens of Humanity, Shoes: Anthropologie Sheer Scallops Peep Toes, Earrings: c/o Hamilton Jewelers, Bracelets: c/o Hamilton Jewelers Pearl Bracelets & Silver Graduated Bead Bracelet, Cell Phone Case: c/o BoostCase (twitter: @boostcase)


It was love at first sight.  I saw this sweater, and I knew it had to be mine.  It's no secret that I love pink and I love sequins. It's just so fun and whimsical.  How can something as simple as a sweater make a girl so happy?  Paired with my other favorite things: pearls and peep-toes and I'm feeling as pretty as a girl can be.

While we're talking about things that make me happy, I'm smitten with my new cell phone case c/o BoostCase.  It's a hybrid wallet/cell phone case, so I can carry my phone, a credit card and my i.d. all in one neat little package.  I love it especially because I don't always carry a purse, so this is perfect to grab and go.  

Well, I am heading off tonight on a red-eye flight to Costa Rica.  I'll be taking pictures galore and I will keep you posted during my adventures.  Adios amigos!
