Baby It's Warm Outside

Lately I've been starting to wonder if it was really Fall. I see pumpkins and mums at the grocery store, and I've been working on getting my Halloween costume together, but my legs and toes are still exposed, and iced coffees are still my best friend. I'm not one to complain about warm weather, #caligirlproblems, so I'm just going to soak up every last bit of sun while I can.

By the way, if you didn't catch yesterday's post featuring Benny J Designs, be sure to head on over and enter to win yourself one of their lovely bracelets. They even made the one I'm wearing in today's post, which I just LOVE!

Benny J Designs GIVEAWAY!!!

Sometimes a girl's just gotta throw on a good pair of jeans and a tee shirt. It sounds simple, but in a world full of mini's, maxi's and everything in between, the classics sometimes get lost in the wash. 

When reaching for classics like jeans and a solid print tee, it's important to pair with statement pieces like cute cut-out booties and attention grabbing accessories. Case and point: this bracelet and necklace from Benny J Designs.

Honestly, I've never really been that into beaded jewelry, but I am just crazy about these new accessories and pretty much everything else by Benny J Designs. They're based out of the Highlands in Denver (I love local!) but everything's available for purchase online, so definitely head on over and have yourselves a peeksies. Even better, enter the giveaway below to win a bracelet of your own! 

Today, I'm teaming up with the lovely Shannon of Upbeat Soles to give you a chance to win this beautiful inspiration cross bracelet from Benny J Designs. (It can be made with or without the cross) If you haven't already checked out Shannon's blog, be sure to stop over and say hello! She's such a doll and her style is just the cutest!

Enter the rafflecopter below for your shot at winning this gorgeous bracelet. Bonus entries for reposting this image on instagram! Use the hashtag #ilovebennyj and be sure to come back and log your entry on the rafflecopter. This step can be done everyday! Happy Monday and good luck!

New Year's Resolution In September

Yes I know it's only September, but with respect to keepin' it real with myself and my time, I'm resolving to hold off on this goal until the New Year. 

I came across this article on BuzzFeed, the other day, with 20 Colorado places that will literally take your breath away, and decided that I have GOT to get around to all of these magical places.

I've already been to a few of them, and even have the privilege of living about 5 miles from Garden of the Gods, (She's a beaut!) but when the new year rolls around, I'll be making it my mission to visit the rest of these lovely locations by end of 2015.

Grid Print

Is it just me or is grid print the best thing to happen since sliced bread chambray? I'm seeing this print all over this season and personally can't get enough. 

Perhaps it's my love of black and white (or black and beige, in this case) but this windowpane print gets two thumbs up in my book. By the way, can we talk about this bag? Sole Society does it again!

You might remember this blazer cape from my New York Fashion Week recap, and I'm just obsessed with it now, as I was then. Without a doubt it is quickly becoming a closet favorite, and adds the perfect touch of chic to any ensemble.
