Happy weekend! Hope you're enjoying your Saturday. As I mentioned yesterday, here are some links in case you want to check them out :)
. 20 must-Read Fitness, Health, and Happiness Books of 2014, I'm taking notes!! :)
. Loeffler Randall is having a sale, and it's a good one. Looooving these cheetah loafers, these spotted flats, this bag , and these oxfords. Yes, narrowing down favorites at Loeffler Randall is never easy ;)
. Why you should text with your head up.
. 13 Dangerous household items you should quit using immediately
. 7 Best Soups to make ahead for Thanksgiving
. I get tons of compliments on those pumps (super comfy) and they are on sale, just saying ;)
. Good to know: extra 30% off winter picks from J.Crew ;)
Puffer vests are such a great layering piece, they add both warmth and style and they can be thrown on basically anything. Wear it over a chunky sweater, a denim jacket, or layered tops for a chic Fall look, and go pattern mixing for a cool and fun statement. I love this buffalo check version from J.Crew so here are three ways to wear it, and in case you're looking for a more affordable option, Gap has a great one that looks very similar ;)

Here are the snaps I wanted to share on Monday :) Last week I was offered a pair of jeans from Jean Machine and even though I was hesitant at the beginning because I like to stick to my favorites (Gap always skinny, Current/Elliot stiletto jeans, 7FAM skinny jeans and Madewell skinny skinny jeans) I decided to give it a try since I had nothing to loose. To be honest, I wasn't expecting to find anything but to my surprise I found the perfect pair of distressed black jeans! Proof that sometimes is worth stepping out of your tried and true favorites ;)
Anyway, I had quite a busy weekend with Spark Sessions on both Saturday and Sunday, a trip to the ROM with Matthew, a lunch date with our besties, and a kids birthday party! Yes, I'm looking forward to the weekend! ;)
My friend Sarah's sweater and sparkle combo, right on point!

Matthew didn't have school on Friday so it was a long and busy weekend for us :) As usual, I wanted to share some snaps from the weekend and last week but I've been having some issues with the SD card slot on my laptop so I haven't been able to download the photos from my camera (yes I'm panicking just a little!).

Nothing like having that little black dress that gets you out of trouble when you feel like you have nothing to wear, you throw it on, only think about accessories and you're set. No fuss, super easy, always reliable. I mean, there's a reason why it's considered to be a closet staple, and of all staples can you believe I didn't have one? Truth. So, when I partnered up with Neiman Marcus I knew exactly what I needed to add to my closet: a LBD. A simple, relaxed style with just the right amount of edginess (gotta love the leather details), that will now get me out of trouble ;)
Recreate the look: Dress / Aviators (I want these!) / Clutch (similar, similar) / Metallic Pumps (similar) / Coat (similar, similar)
My little black dresses picks, mostly (if not all) on sale ;)
