Casual Diaries: Denim On Denim Ft FoxCroft


I am a HUGE fan of denim on denim. Tons of celebs from Rihanna, to Beyonce, to Kim Kardashian have tried their hand at it. While it would have been easy to recreate a celeb look I decided to just do my own thing and show you guys how I would rock a denim on denim look with a bit of my own flavor.

The top is courtesy of Foxcroft. I was elated when they reached out to me to review some of their new Fall Arrivals. Foxcroft brand is inspired by signature prints, vibrant colors, and feminine shapes. Everything about their brand embodies what I'm loving nowadays...a casual polished look with items that have a classit fit with a clean silhouette.

I decided to pair the denim top from Foxcroft with a denim pencil skirt....and to add my own flavor I layered the look with my favorite olive vest and coordinated my camo bag that I didn't get much wear out of last Fall when I initially purchased it. The top from Foxcroft is very true to size but if you are busty or have larger arms I would suggest ordering a size up for a more comfortable fit.

If you are liking this top you can get it right now for 40 percent off  with free shipping thanks to Foxcroft Friends and Family sale. The 40 percent off will automatically be taken off at checkout.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn- A Review



I know you guys are wondering why the heck I'm writing about a novel on a fashion blog, but honestly for sometime now I've been thinking of including posts on things going on in my life other than what I wear because as much as I love fashion, it's such a very small part of who I am. One little known fact about me is that I'm a bookworm. Reading and Writing are two of my first loves so I am always reading something. I'm a very avid reader and try to read one book a week or more if I can. 

My most recent read was Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. When I saw the movie advertised and realized it was a screen adaptation of the book I HAD to read the book to see what it was about. Honestly guys, this is the BEST book I've read in 2014 aside from The Shack by William P. Young. In Gone Girl, Lance Nick Dunne's wife Amy goes mysteriously missing on their fifth wedding anniversary. It receives national News coverage because Amy's parents are the authors of the Amazing Amy book series that was pretty much read by every kid in America.  

The story goes back and forth between his version of the marriage and her version of the marriage via her diary....but all the clues seem to point to Nick being the murderer. Without revealing what happens I will just say GET THIS BOOK! It had me on the edge of my seat enthralled with what was going to happen next...I wanted to laugh with Nick, cry with him, hated him at times, it was just a really really amazing read you guys.  Did Nick kill Amy? Will they find her? You have to read it to find out. 

 You can get the book on Amazon (here)

Would you like to see more book reviews in the future? Let me know!!!

Until Next Time,

Fall Florals and Fringe


 A great basic black maxi dress that fits well is one of my wardrobe staples. I pair mine with everything from kimonos, to denim jackets for casual wear, to blazers. Pairing a blazer with a maxi is one of the easiest go to outfits you can wear that is super comfy and stylish.

I paired this maxi with a tuxedo blazer and my fringe bag. I love the floral print on this blazer because they are dark florals and perfect for Fall. Sometimes the best looks are the ones we give the least amount of thought.

Pink + Camo

Those Fall days when it's cool in the mornings......but warm in the evenings...and u want to throw on a light layer that you can take off. That's one of the many reasons I love infinity scarves.

I have yet to find the perfect skinny jeans but until I do I'm going to continue shopping my closet and working with what I have. I love my dark colors in the Fall but every now and then I will dabble in a bit of color. This time around I put on my favorite vibrant pink blazer, my camo infinity scarf from last season , and some old jeggings. I finished the look with my favorite bag of the moment and some classic pointy toe heels.

Camo is one of my favorite prints and pairing it with pink just made me happy because pink is my favorite color.The fun part about accessories like scarves is you can use them to make the most basic of looks pop (and this Winter they will be on HEAVY rotation)  Have you ever thought about pairing camo with an unexpected color like pink?
