Earlier this week we had 40 degree weather with the sun shining, and if I didn't know better, I would have thought it was April! I definitely dress for my mood, so with the weather being so beautiful, I had to wear bright colors! My sweater from J.Crew is incredibly soft, and I'm loving all of the pretty pastel options for spring. I've linked a few different lightweight sweater options for you below, and most of them are under $50! 

OK so I have to ask - who are you rooting for in the Super Bowl? I'm not a huge fan of either team, however since I'm talking about the NFL, I would like to point out that I got 1st place in my fantasy football league this year (I'm the ONLY girl in my league!). I was told that in order to make this socially acceptable, my winnings must go towards a blog outfit so, boys, stay tuned ;)

Have a great weekend! Thanks for reading.

When I saw this coat at White House Black Market, I'm not going to lie, I did a little happy dance in the dressing room. It was not only beautiful and one of my favorite color combos (white and blush - um, yes please!), but it was also ON SALE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Like any girl, I love a good deal, but sometimes I get buyer's remorse when I buy something on sale, and then realize when I get home that I only liked it because it was on sale. Let's just say I am NOT regretting this purchase!

Today I'm all over NW Iowa for a big work meeting - part of my job is planning events, executing event day logistics and simply making guests feel comfortable all while keeping things moving along and putting out fires. I wouldn't trade it for the world - my work is interesting, challenging and I learn everyday - however after any event where I'm executing logistics, by the end of the day, I'm beat. I'm thinking yoga, my comfy bed and Scandal will be the perfect way to treat myself after this long day!

Sweater: Jack (grey version under $20!) | Blouse: Mint L.A. Boutique, similar | Jeans: 7FAM | Boots: Franco Sarto | Bag: Marc Jacobs, similar | Sunnies: Ray-Ban | Earrings: Vince Camuto, similar | Lipstick: MAC - Rebel & MAC - Creme Cup over it 

It was a liiiiiitle windy out, but my new Jack sweater helped keep me cozy and warm! Today is the start of the "University of Okoboji Winter Games" here in NW Iowa. To sum it up in one run-on sentence, Winter Games is an annual weekend event held on the lake (literally on the ice) that includes an array of field games, concerts, social gatherings, a 5K, and of course, plenty of beverages. The weather has been too warm to hold the games on the ice this year, so it won't be the same (according to locals!), but it's my first Winter Games so I'm excited to see what everyone is raving about! 

The $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway is open until Saturday at midnight, so check out my last post to enter if you haven't already! I've made it soooooo easy to enter: simply follow me on Instagram or on Blovlovin'. Have a great weekend! THANK YOU for reading!
