Fall is in full swing now, and even though it's still very hot here in South Florida, I had to bust out my favorite over-the-knee boots. I first bought this taupe pair - "Carina" about a year ago and loved them so much that I ended up buying them in tan- "Marlo" just a few months later. I'm going to buy the final color option in black - "Ellis" as well, because I love them that much!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Most OTK boots don't fit well and slide down my legs, and these do not. They fit snugly like a sock around the leg but have stretch to fit just right and remain comfortable. There's a back zip closure at the ankle to make getting them on and off easier. (no annoying drawstring with a crazy high price tag).

The 2 1/4 block-style heel is the perfect height to elongate the leg without sacrificing comfort - yes, they're seriously comfortable! The pointy toe makes them ultra-feminine and easy to style with jeans, shorts, or dresses. They can be worn completely casual with a tee and jeans or dressed up as glam as you like.

 
 
 
 

And finally, the best part, they're affordably priced around $150, are great quality for the price, and constantly on sale! Todaythey're on sale HERE for 30% off with the code EVERYDAY.. All three colors are linked below in addition to the Anja handbag that I'm carrying,. It's available in several colors including the three colors to match the boots, pink, and red, which is on trend for Fall 2017. It's also on sale for 30% off using the code EVERYDAY. Today you can actually purchase the boots AND bag on sale for less than you'd pay for just the boots regularly priced. So, what are you waiting for?!? Get to buying some new boots and bags as a Halloween treat yo' self!- Jill xoxo

 

Holiday HOME Gift Guide 2017: SpongeBath System

I'm already excited and planning for the holidays that will be here before we know it! Usually I plan out a gift guide that's all-inclusive in terms of fashion, beauty, home, etc... This year I'm going to break out the guides by categories because I'm finding so many things that if I didn't, my gift guide would be a full-blown catalogue. I will be posting all of my gift guides in my "HOME" tab and updating each regularly with new finds.

First on my list is a cool item that I've been testing out over the last few weeks, and I love - the SpongeBath System. It's a sponge caddy for your kitchen sink that not only holds your sponge, but cleans it too in just 10 minutes.

The SpongeBath System comes with a two-month supply of concentrated cleanser that eliminates 99.9% of odor-causing bacteria and leaves your sponge clean, fresh, and just like new. The cleansing formula does not contain any parabens or toxic chemicals and is fragrance-free. It fits perfectly next to the kitchen sink for easy use, and its design is simple making it perfect for any kitchen design and a great gift for the holidays! - Jill xoxo

Fall Style Favorites Roundup

 
Fall Style Favorites Roundup 2017.jpg

Hey, all! I was so excited to start looking for fall pieces and get this fall style favorites roundup posted. I think fall is the best season for fashion or at least the most fun. Boots, scarfs, cardigans, and the coolest layering trends happen this time of year. We really begin seeing the mixing of textures, colors, and patterns now. It's so much fun and really express our personal style.

I was so happy that many of the trends from last year are making an appearance this year as well. Who knows, maybe they're becoming or are now considered classics?! Over-the-knee boots like THESE, moto jackets like THIS beautiful suede one, and bomber jackets like THIS adorable pink one, booties, leopard and stripe prints (thank goodness), and hats like THIS new style are front and center once again, and I ain't mad at all! We can all pull out last year's pieces and build a solid fall and winter wardrobe utilizing all of those great finds from last year.

Below you will find everything for top to bottom looks including handbags and accessories. If you're looking for new skin, hair and other suggestions, check out all of the new products I've featured in my sidebar and under my "SHOP" tab at the top of the page. I've made tons of new updates and site changes over the last few weeks, so definitely take a look around, have fun, and, of course, happy fall, ya'll! -  Jill xoxo

The Office, Gastropub Delight in Delray Beach, Florida

 
The Office ~  201 East Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach, FL 33444

Just before Hurricane Irma made her arrival in South Florida, I had an awesome time and enjoyed some amazing dishes at The Office, a gastropub like no other! And you gotta love the name, right?!

The Office, established in 2009 in Delray Beach, Florida, has the most comfortable atmosphere - open and spacious dining area that's casual, yet elegant, with the friendliest staff, and a menu full of dishes that are prepared fresh for you upon order. Even their french fries are hand-cut fresh daily.

The main item of focus at The Office Delray is their burger, and it's insanely good. They use only top quality ingredients and beef to make their burgers. And their beef is from a butcher that creates their one-of-a-kind recipe. Cheeseburgers are my favorite food, and, without a doubt, their Prime Office Cheeseburger is the best one I've ever had.

 
 

If you're not looking for a big meal, and just want a place to enjoy some appetizers and drinks with friends, The Office is perfect for that too, offering two happy hours daily with food and drink specials from 3-7pm as well as 10 pm-close. I tried two of their well-known appetizers, the Colossal Pretzel, and the Tuna Tartare. And, wow!

 
 

The Colossal Pretzel is named appropriately, let me tell you! It's served warm with two different homemade sauces for dipping. This soft, delicious treat is such fun and original spin on appetizers.

The Tuna Tartare really surprised me. Their spin on this appetizer is just as original as the pretzel. The soft, flavorful tuna bites are served over a bed of crispy wontons and avocado. The combination of flavors and textures in this dish are perfection.

If you're local to South Florida or just passing through on business or vacation, definitely make this one of your restaurants to visit for lunch, dinner, or even brunch on Saturday or Sunday from 10 am - 3 pm. Book your reservations HERE and Marcello and the gang will take amazing care of you while you enjoy your day at The Office! - Jill xoxo

*Special thanks to The Office Delray for complimentary dining. As always, opinions are 100% my own.
