Plaid Season...

top: jcrew {old; love this number - on sale! + craving this style} | sweater: blu dulce boutique c/o | pants: jcrew {order one size down} | shoes: madewell {similar here; more affordable style here} | clutch: gigi new york c/o | glasses: ray-ban | lips: 'red revival' by maybelline

The thing I love about plaid is that it always comes back around this time of year (see this recent Glamour article featuring my fave plaid shoes from last season).

It's also the only thing making me a teeny tiny bit excited for cooler temps + hot cocoa!

Fearless Faves: Rack It Up


So let's say you were a little bummed yesterday because you didn't catch the heads up over the weekend that there were tons of sales going on. You might choose to quickly browse the best sellers or your fave bloggers' picks to see what you should have purchased and snag it at full price because you don't want to risk it going out of stock in your size. That's not a terrible approach (we all do it from time-to-time), but what if you had a team of people watching out for you who quickly pinged you when an item you're coveting goes on sale? Wouldn't you sleep a little better at night knowing you can get those 'must-haves' and not pay full price, or miss the memo when they go on sale?

Enter: Rack It Up

This incredible online service allows you to "rack up" (think Pinterest) your favorite items from your favorite stores to your personal online closet. You can then set a price range you're willing to pay for those items, and Rack It Up will email you when the items go on sale, or when they fall within your predetermined budget. Sure, it's an automated system, but it sounds just like a personal assistant if you ask me. (Imagine how much we could get done in life if there were a Rack It Up service for everything!) You can also follow your friends, blogger friends and fave brands on Rack It Up to see what they're saving in their virtual closets (follow my closet here!).

Lastly, GO HERE to sign up for a free account and start racking up items in your virtual closet!
(You'll thank yourself when the busy holiday shopping season rolls around.)

Special thanks to Rack It Up for sponsoring this post.

More Navy, More Pink!

sweater: jcrew | jeans: zara {last seen here; similar style} | heels: jcrew {almost identical here} | bag: nena & co c/o | necklace: madewell | watch: michael kors | bracelet: jcrew | glasses: karen walker | lips: 'st germain' by mac

I hope you scored some great items over the weekend with all the amazing sales! I can't wait to share what I snagged from the Saks Fifth Avenue Friends & Family Sale (you can still get free shipping with code 'freeship').

Also, these weeks keep flying by and I'm realizing how little time I have left to figure out our Halloween costumes. We don't typically dress up every year, but Matty and I have been discussing some fun ideas. If we can pull it together soon enough, I just might have some entertaining pics to share on the blog. ;) In the meantime...

Where are you getting your costume ideas?

Beauty: Maybelline Dream Wonder Foundation

I had the opportunity to try Maybelline's new Dream Wonder Fluid-Touch Foundation* this weekend and I am seriously loving it. I simply replaced my other foundation with Dream Wonder, applying with my same fave foundation brush, and I couldn't believe how smoothly it spread on my skin. The texture was so thin and light, but still provided enough coverage to even out my skin tone. I used the "Medium Buff" shade and was very impressed... All of this coming from a girl who hates looking like she's wearing makeup (isn't that the point?). I completed my all-natural look with a punch of red using my go-to Maybelline lipstick in "Red Revival."
