Light Fall Layers with Nordstrom

Today's post in sponsored by Nordstrom.

Have you noticed that I like pairing floral prints with camo prints?! "Baby I'm sorry, I'm not sorry" (in  my best Demi Lovato voice).  There's just something about these two prints together that I LOVE!  Florals always make me feel so feminine while camo always makes me feel a bit more tough and edgy.  Both this dress and this camo jacket are perfect for Fall layering.

It hasn't even cooled off enough here in Nashville to truly consider it Fall yet, BUT cooler weather is on the way.  I'm taking advantage of light layers right now and Nordstrom always has the best selection of Fall dresses, light jackets, and booties.

This floral dress immediately caught my eye because of the creme backdrop, the rustic floral print, and all of the rich Fall colors.  I mean...can't you just see yourself walking through a park in this dress with Fall leafs dropping all around you?!  Don't mind my daydream. ;-)  I also love the choker neckline, which is a big trend for Fall 2017. p.s this dress is under $50!

And you've seen this camo jacket many times before and you will see it again!  I truly wear it all of the time...it is hands down my favorite camo jacket that I own.  The structured fit as well as the shoulder and zipper detail make this camo jacket stand out from all of the rest.  It's a great investment piece because camo is not going anywhere anytime soon.

I'd love to hear how you like to layer up for Fall and do you also like florals and camo together?!  What pieces from Nordstrom are you loving for Fall?

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Camo In The City - NYFW Look






Photography by The Retro Penguin 


For the past few years, camo has been trending and no, I'm not talking about for all of the hunting guru's, I'm talking for all the ladies out there.  I've loved this trend because it is so fun to take what is traditional a masculine print and add a feminine chic touch to it.

I've stepped out of my comfort zone a bit by wearing much more camo than I normally would.  In years past, I have only worn touches of camo such as a camo jacket, camo scarf, etc.  This year, during NYFW, I went a little further with a camo satin sleep dress and I'm so glad I took the risk!

The subtle camo print and subtle color scheme of this dress make it a stand out without being too "in your face", which I love.  I felt very feminine wearing this dress but also a bit tough because let's be honest, camo also lends itself to more of a tough girl vibe.

I wore this satin bomber jacket over top, this paisley print scarf for even more visual interest, and added a pop of funk and color with this fun little handbag.

If you aren't comfortable with camo, start with something small and work your way up.  If you have been wearing camo for years, this dress is for you!

p.s for a size reference, I'm wearing a S in the dress and an XS in the bomber jacket!

Do you love the camo trend as much as I do?

As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend ahead!

How I Keep My Teeth Pearly White with Tom's of Maine

Today's post is sponsored by Tom's of Maine.

Let's talk pearly whites!  I'm always asked "How do you keep your teeth so white?" and today, I'm going to share a bit about my experience using Tom's of Maine Luminous toothpaste.

There are so many whitening toothpastes available but there are some specific reasons that I decided to start using Tom's of Maine.  All of their oral care products are made with no artificial colors, flavors, fragrances or preservatives, nor are they tested on animals.  Tom's of Main Luminous White™ toothpaste is their most advance whitening toothpaste, it's safe on your enamel, AND safe for every day use.  It's also gluten free!  This natural toothpaste packs a punch and whitens within 2 weeks by removing more surface stains than regular fluoride toothpaste.

I've been interested in using more natural personal care products so I was thrilled to try Tom's of Main Luminous White™ toothpaste for a two week period and report my results!  And WOW...my teeth not only feel super clean with each brush but I can absolutely tell a difference in how white they are.  I LOVE the taste of this toothpaste too.  Every time I use it, I truly feel like I am using the best toothpaste available for my teeth...my Dentist would be proud!

If you've had interest in trying a natural whitening toothpaste, I highly recommend Tom's of Maine Luminous White™toothpaste.  Next time you are in Whole Foods or another natural food store, you should pick some up and give it a try...I stand behind my experience and I truly believe you will have a great experience using it as well!

I've been so pleased that I'm going to try more natural products from Tom's of Maine!

Have you tried this toothpaste or any other products from Tom's of Maine before?!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a beautiful smiley day!

Falling For Kimonos and Wide Leg Pants





Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson


I'm sharing a bit more about what I wore while at New York Fashion Week and this outfit was another favorite of mine.  Trending this Fall season...wide leg pants and long kimonos!    

This outfit was one of THE MOST comfortable outfits I've ever worn.  The wide leg pants offer so much comfort and movement as does the kimono.  I wore a silk cami underneath the kimono, a simple black bag, and these high heels to finish my look.

This Fall season, I will wear the wide leg pants a variety of ways and I will also pair the kimono with jeans and a long sleeve tee.

What do you think of wide leg pants and long kimonos?!  

As always, thanks so much for stopping by...hope you have a great day!
