{outfit post} 5 winter favorites .

by Lauren on November 25, 2014

one of my favorite things to do on a Saturday morning is go out to brunch with girlfriends and catch up over mimosas. i did exactly that this past weekend and wore this cozy cape to stay warm on a rather dreary cold day. the mix of the soft fabric and the color block grey and white make this piece perfect for everyday. i always crave comfort in the winter yet still want to keep my style.

my top five favorite pieces for winter include cozy capes, bright-colored blouses, black booties, petite layered necklaces and oversized totes. you can find all these winter favorites and more on i recently discovered this site and am loving all of the discounts that you can get. Raise lets you buy gift cards to all the best stores at a discounted price. some of my favorite store like Loft, Sephora and H&M are on the site. also, if you have old gift cards laying around that you haven’t used, sell them on Raise for cash.

{trend alert} capes.

by Lauren on November 12, 2014

i have been obsessing over the cape/poncho trend that is everywhere this fall! i recently bought the one in the bottom-right hand corner from ASOS and am counting down the days until it hits my doorstep. the temperature just dropped to a winter chill this week so these pieces would be perfect for layering.

they are putting up the mayor’s christmas tree right outside of where i work so i feel as if i have been hit with the christmas spirit earlier this year than in years past. plus, i had my first red holiday coffee cup today when i ordered a mocha at Panera. needless to say, i am in the holiday mood extra early this year. i hope you all are having a wonderful week!
