Skip N’Whistle – Boston Terrier







Sweatshirt : Skip N’ Whistle c/o ~ Jeans : Forever21 (similar)~ Shoes : Torrid (Valentino Version)~
Purse : Rebecca Minkoff ~ Bow : Forever21 ~ Glasses : Gucci ~
Earrings : Kate Spade ~ Rings : ASOS ~ Bracelets : ASOS

The only thing more adorable than a real puppy…is this amazing sweatshirt!

I love the Skip N’Whistle brand line and all of the many product offerings they have. They offer everything from a printed anchor graphics tank (I know my Delta Gamma girls would love this), to multiple types of animal print graphics!

I think this is going to be the perfect light sweater to take on the plane when I leave for vacation this week, WAHOO!

More details to come about the trip 🙂

Here are two of our favorite looks from last weeks Black & White ensembles!

Sierra from Life As A Waterleaf (love that peplum skirt with the leather pants)
Alicia at River City Chic (I totally have her same skirt and shirt)


Today’s trend is COLORBLOCKING!!

Yes I know we have been seeing this trend all over the J.Crew catalogs, but show us how you incorporate colorblocking into your daily style.

Mixing Prints + A Dirty Diet Coke


Shirt : H&M (love this)~ Skirt : H&M (old – different print) ~ Shoes : Zara (great alternative) ~
Fedora : Koo De Ker ~ Sunglasses : Prada ~ Purse : Louis Vuitton ~
Watch : Burberry ~ Bracelet : Kate Spade

I have been loving mixing and matching prints lately, and I think my favorite combo must be stripes and florals!

My other favorite thing right now has become a growing trend in the Utah area…and it called a Dirty Diet Coke! Yes you heard that right, and it surely is a craze right now. I actually decided to make my own, and here is the recipe. Trust me, it is a MUST try!!


Dirty Diet Coke Recipe –


2 tablespoons coconut syrup
crushed ice
1/2 lime (cut the lime into quarters and use 2 quarters)
12 ounces Diet Coke
1-2 tablespoons half and half (optional – but I HIGHLY recommend or you can use some Almond Coconut Milk)


Pour the coconut syrup into the bottom of a 24-ounce glass. Fill it about halfway full with crushed ice. Squeeze the lime quarters over the ice and drop them into the glass so the rind is touching the ice. Pour the Diet Coke over the spent limes. If desired, add a splash of half and half. Add a straw to stir and serve. Makes 1 serving.
