Classic Plaid Shirt





Old Navy Classic Plaid Shirt, Vest-Old Navy Girls (similar Tea n Rose Navy Puffy Vest), Old Navy Rockstar Jeans, Tote-c/o Massi.com, Boots-Nordstorm (similar Nine West Riding Boots)

My closet is already filled with plaid shirts, but like dessert, there's always room for some more! I couldn't resist this one from Old Navy in classic red, white, and blue. I got it on sale for just $14.25! It's currently on sale for $16, which is still a steal.

Cargo Vest + Stripes




Tee-Gap (similar Joe Fresh Stripe Tee), Vest-Decree (similar Nurture Utility Vest), Pants-H&M (similar Old Navy Skinny Jeans), Stevie's Leopard Flats, Bag-Botkier

Clearly I can't stop pairing stripes and leopard together, don't judge me! The two patterns are just meant to be, like peanut butter and jelly. The whole look is pulled together with this cargo vest. It's a piece I wear all year round, from the summer with a sleeveless dress to winter layered over a sweater.

Jeweled Stripes + Leopard





Cardigan-American Eagle (similar Old Navy Boyfriend Cardigan), Top-JCrew Factory (similar JCrew Factory Embellished Top), H&M Pants (only $17.99), Stevie's Leopard Flats

How is it Monday already?! Last week was especially busy for me at work so I did a lot of relaxing (aka being lazy) this weekend. Today I'm remixing this jeweled stripe top. I love that it's like a built in necklace! I paired it with olive pants and my other favorite pattern, leopard, with the flats. 

I previously wore this striped top layered with a chambray shirt, contrasting stripe bag, and riding boots.

Treggings




Sweater-JCrew Factory (similar JCrew Factory Teddie Sweater), H&M Treggings, Bag-Forever Tiff Couture (similar Forever 21 Quilted Crossbody), Stevie's Leopard Flats, Bracelet-Sassy Steals (original Stella & Dot Cluster Renegade Bracelet)

I just got these treggings and I am obsessed! I knew what jeggings were, but I hadn't heard of treggings before. They are a cross between trousers and leggings. This pair from H&M feels and looks like pants, made from twill and have back pockets. Yet, they have the comfort of leggings thanks to an elastic waistband! I also ordered them in a wine color, but I might have to get even more colors since they're only $17.99!

Red Buffalo Plaid





Cardigan-Target (similar Old Navy Open Cardigan), Shirt-Aeropostale Boys (similar Vintage Havana Buffalo Plaid Shirt for $29.97), Necklace-c/o Happiness Boutique, Old Navy Rockstar Jeans, Ankle Boots-Andres Machado (similar Charles Albert Black Ankle Boots)

I have gone from wearing summer clothes while I was in Arizona back to fall clothes here in Jersey all in the span of 5 days. This red buffalo plaid shirt (found in the boys section) is one of my favorites from last season. I've worn it countless times, but have always managed to pair it with something different since it is so versatile! Today I wore it with a black cardigan, rhinestone statement necklace, and black ankle boots. If you don't already have a buffalo plaid shirt, get one!

Insta-Update

Things have been a little quiet on the blog since I was in Phoenix for work this week. It was my first time in Arizona and the first time I've been in the Southwest! Luckily I got to do some exploring in between meetings. The first day I was there we visited the Botanical Gardens. I had no idea there were so many different kinds of cactus! 





When I had a little bit of free time, I hit up the hotel pool. I wanted to take full advantage of the 90 degree weather (especially since it won't be this warm again in Jersey till next summer!). I brought Shopaholic To the Stars by Sophie Kinsella to read. 



The mountain views (taken from the hotel room on the 14th floor) were so beautiful.

The Perfect Holiday Gift

Now that it's fall, the holidays will be here before we know it! Holiday shopping stresses me out, since I strive to find a gift for each person that they will absolutely love. I don't like to give money or gift cards and would rather opt for something more thoughtful. However, there's usually at least one person on my list that is so hard to shop for. Either they already have everything, or I just can't figure out what they would want. Luckily, I've discovered Sesame Gifts. They have the perfect holiday gift for everyone on my list, even those that are super hard to shop for!

Sesame Gifts have thoughtful, hand-picked gift sets. Each box has a cute theme...Man Snacks for the foodie guy in your life, Relax & Refresh for an at home spa day, Monkeying Around for kids, just to name a few. I ordered the Sundae Funday box for my husband since he LOVES ice cream (seriously, he would probably eat it for breakfast if I let him). 

The gift came beautifully packaged and comes with its own card which is a nice personal touch.



The Sundae Funday box came with Chocolate and Caramel Sauces, Caramel Filled Waffles, Moravian Cookies, Bourbon Brittle, Rainbow Sprinkles, and Paper Ice Cream Cups...everything you need for ice cream sundaes! They were delicious and my hubby loved his gift!


Ready to order your own gift? The first 5 readers to use promo code Tinyheart can get $15 towards a Sesame Gift (use by 10/31)!

In addition, with Sesame Gifts "Gift More, Get More", you can get $20 for every $100 you spend through 11/30, just in time for the holidays! (use promo code GIFTMORE).

The Key to Thicker, Fuller Hair + Giveaway!



All my life I've had thin hair, which I absolutely hate. It has gotten worse over time, due to my constant use of the flat iron to make my wavy hair straight. I've always dreamed of having a beautiful, thick head of hair. On my wedding day, I decided to wear hair extensions so that my hair would appear both thicker and fuller. While I'd love my hair to look like that every day, I find hair extensions are too time consuming to put in when I'm rushing to get ready for work.

I was given the wonderful opportunity to interview Jill Crosby, celebrity stylist, to get her hair tips and tricks. 


1. What products do you recommend for styling thinner hair?
Mousses, thickening spray, dry shampoo are all great go to's to get instant volume on the run.

2. Which hair styles are best for hair to appear fuller and thicker?
I like styles that creat a weight line. They can be short or medium lengths even long as long as they aren't scraggly . Building in definition helps to make a look appear thicker.

3. How should heat tools be used on thin hair?
Carefully!!! Turn down the heat on all your tools so as not to hurt the hair one already has. Thinning hair responds better to less heat, it doesn't need as much heat to get the beautiful styles one wants.

4. How often should women with thin hair get a haircut?
That will be based on how fast her hair grows and how "tight" she wants to keep her style ...every woman is different. Keeping hair healthy means getting a cut before damage sets in.

All of these styling tips and tricks are great, but the only long term solution for thinning hair is Women’s ROGAINE® Foam



It's the first and only FDA-approved once daily treatment with 5% minoxidil proven to regrow hair. You apply it just once a day and it's easy to use.
