#BlackFriday Sale Update: Up To 50% Off @ALDO Shoes!


‘Tis boot season, which means that at least a few days a week, your wardrobe should consist of a tunic sweater & leggings, a turtleneck & skinny jeans, & a cardigan & boyfriend jeans. I’m pretty psyched to get the most use out of my favorite fall / winter shoes to reinvent staple pieces in a new way. Footwear is the easiest way to spruce up any look, especially when you can consider adding extra texture & detail in suede, laces, & metallic accents.

Holiday Gift Styles: Casper’s Beauty Sleep Challenge & Stylish Deals for Better Sleep!


November is nearly over, but it’s not too late to take better steps towards National Sleep Comfort Month… Did you know? I didn’t! Casper, a company that makes latex memory foam mattresses, is holding a Beauty Sleep Challenge & Style Darling is up for the task, sharing favorite ways to relax in style & get ready for bed for a more satisfying night’s sleep. Not to mention the fact that everyone’s life gets crazy, so giving the gift of better sleep to a loved one this holiday season is a great idea, whether it’s with a pajama set, fuzzy slippers, stylish throw blanket, or relaxing extras like candles or moisturizers!

When it comes to sleepwear, I’m all about color. Here’s the one instance where color-coordination isn’t such a big deal for me. I love mixing pops of color since sleep is all about a time for your body to rejuvenate & why not have fun with colors & patterns that you can alternate for a playful sleep ensemble? When hitting the sheets, I’ve picked some must-haves that will certainly make lounge-time even better, & these selections won’t break the bank!

Casper's Beauty Sleep Challenge for National Sleep Comfort MonthSHOP: Eartherapeutics sleep mask ($8.00) @Ultashort robe ($39.50) in pink @Victoria’s Secret, pajama set ($13.19) in oatmeal heather @Target, pajama set ($13.19) in grey @Target, & slippers ($17.95) in blue @H&M.

This is definitely the time of year to bundle up & I’m not one to shy away from blanket variety, if I’m snuggling up for a Sunday afternoon nap or curling up with my beau for a restful winter night’s sleep. Here’s another opportunity to let your style speak through your sleep-ready essentials. Soft textures & modern prints are what bring any bedding arrangement to life & these will certainly inspire you to get that much-needed shut eye.

sleepSHOP: throw blanket ($8.88) in interlocking squares @Walmart, velvet plush throw ($8.99) in leopard @JC Penneyfleece blanket ($6.00) in houndstooth @OldNavy, & fluffy throw ($9.99) in fucshia @Bed Bath & Beyond.

Before heading off to bed, I always have to take care of my skin since I suffer from dryness. Staying moisturized will keep your skin glowing & healthy for when you wake up!

sleepSHOP: Neutrogena night cream ($11.99) @CVS & Blistex medicated lip balm ($3.69) @Drugstore.com for a 3-pack.

Lastly, the writer in me loves a good book before dozing off at night. When prepping my mind for dreamland, I have a few other valuable pre-sleep rituals to relax & distress me from everything going on during my hectic day of work, school, relationships, & writing. I try to keep hydrated, especially since this the dryness in the air this time of year sometimes affects my mouth and throat.

sleepSHOP: chamomile tea ($3.39) @Celestial Seasonings, coconut water ($21.16) @Zico for a 12-pack, candle ($11.25) in necatrine green tea @Bath & Body Works, & Eartherapeutcis pillow mist ($9.00) @Ulta.

When it comes to sleep, the best thing you can really do is invest in a quality mattress & pillows that meet your sleeping needs.
