Sponsor Spotlight: Here and Now + Giveaway

Today my sponsor Jessica from Here and Now is taking over the blog! Jessica has super cute style and a common love for pugs. She's styling an outfit from day to night and has an awesome giveaway too!


Tiny Heart Readers - I am SO excited to be over here with you lovelies today!
I’m Jessica from Here&Now where I blog about my daily outfits, adventures in building a stylish wardrobe (aka shopping), and of course my fur baby, Doug the Pug.

I have styled two of my favorite additions to my Fall wardrobe for both night & day. I am already dreaming up more ways to wear this H&M sweater (similar) and Storets vegan leather skirt, and hope that you can get some inspiration for mixing things up in your own closet!
{ Night: boutique sequin collar necklace (similar) // Golden Ponies leopard clutch // Nine West pumps // House of Harlow cuff (love this statement cuff) // lipstick: Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey }

{Get the Look}
leather skirt ($40) + burgundy sweater ($60) + collar necklace ($38) + leopard clutch ($30) + black pumps ($49) + gold cuff ($28) + lipstick ($15)

I'd describe my style as: 
Classic, relaxed, feminine
What trend are you most excited about for fall: Leather and burgundy... hmm, I wonder if you can tell??

Can't live without accessory: oversized gold watch


{Get the Look}

Go-to look (aka what you put on when you can't think of anything to wear): Chambray button down + statement necklace + skinny jeans + ballet flats

Top 5 wardrobe essentials:
Chambray shirt (or 3!), dark denim (in the fit that you find most flattering), black pumps (my personal favorites have pointed toes and 3 inch heels), pencil skirts (seriously work for all occasions!), layerable tees (obsessed with every StyleMint tee)

Favorite part about blogging: Stretching the legs of my creative side, and meeting fabulous like-minded women! My day time job is as a graduate student in biomedical research, so coming home and visiting the sites of my blogger "friends" helps me to unwind and indulge one of my passions (personal style!)

Now for the giveaway!

This year I have been making a point of purchasing gifts from local and handmade sellers, so naturally Etsy is one of my go-to sites when gift-giving. I have picked out items from two of my favorite sellers - one item to dress up yourself, and another for dressing up your house (2 things that are always on my mind).

Giveaway open internationally!

11X14 Chanel Print from Annechovie & orange chain necklace from The Vault Jewels
