Floral headband + rayna jaye giveaway!

I'm so excited to be collaborating with my sweet friend Rayna, who makes the cutest headbands on the planet. Seriously, these are one of my favorite accessories - especially when I'm in a hurry and I don't have time to do my hair. In these photos I was on day 4 of not washing my hair and lets just say it needed a little covering up! I threw on this floral print headband over yesterdays curls and voila! Cute hair!

These headbands have such a boho-chic vibe, which I am totally into. I love mixing girly pieces with more casual/ edgy pieces, so I decided to pair this floral print headband with a more structured yet relaxed shirt to balance it out a little bit. I also love pairing this headband with a maxi dress, chunky sweater, or a flowy kimono!

Rayna's headbands come in so many unique fabrics and prints that you seriously can't find anywhere else. Just take a look at her awesome Etsy shop to see what I'm talking about. 

ALSO, head on over to my Instagram to enter to win one of Rayna's headbands! The winner gets to choose a free headband from her shop! 

Contest ends Thursday night at midnight and the winner will be announced Friday morning! Yay!

cozy black & gray

Sweater: Mossimo for Target - similar here / Jeans: Old Navy

Just because the holidays are over doesn't mean that it's time to put away those cozy sweaters! Yes, of course I wish that was the case. But, the reality is that we still have a good 3-4 months left of winter here in Minnesota... Sigh.

This sweater is one of my favorites because it's so cozy and warm. And the fact that I scooped it up at Target for less than $30, makes it even better! I decided to go for a monocromatic look at pair it with gray skinnies and black ankle boots. I used to be huge on wearing color and  rarely wore black or gray. Now that I've had a baby, black seems to be my new go to color! Maybe once we get closer to summer and I actually start to get a tan on my pasty white skin (that basically hasn't seen the sun since the Summer of 2013- yikes!), I'll whip some more colored wardrobe pieces... My how motherhood can change one's style!

marled sweater + urban peach giveaway!

Necklace: Urban Peach Boutique / Sweater: H&M (similar here) / Pants: LC Lauren Conrad / Boots: Old Navy (similar here)

When I got this adorable necklace in the mail from Urban Peach Boutique, I knew right away that I wanted to wear it with this top. This sweater is one of my favorites this season... Can a girl really have too many cozy, oversized, pullovers?! The texture of this one is amazing and the color is so pretty and perfect for the holidays! Paired with some oh-so-cute olive ankle boots and black skinnies, it's a perfectly put together look, without being fussy.

I'm so excited to try this necklace with other looks; how adorable would it be with a chiffon blouse tucked into a mini skirt and tights? Or with a graphic sweatshirt and distressed denim? The neutral black and gold color pallet of this piece of jewelry make it so versatile, so it pairs great with anything!

Urban Peach is one of my favorite places to pick up adorable accessories at an affordable price. Also, they have a great 2 for $20 deal happening this weekend!! Use code "2FOR20". Sale ends this Sunday.

If you love this necklace as much as I do, head on over to my Instagram account to enter to win one of your own! Contest ends Sunday, so head on over quick!
