Not Plaid About It.. (+ Michael Kors Watch Giveaway)











TOP: Anthropologie (similar style & here) | DENIM: super old (very similar style) | HEELS: Topshop c/o (similar here & here) | CLUTCH: Elaine Turner c/o | SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban | WATCH: Michele | BRACELETS: David Yurman, Siramara | NECKLACE: Baublebar c/o | RINGS: Baublebar, Kendra Scott | EARRINGS: Baublebar c/o | LIPS: YSL #29

A little look from my Sunday afternoon attire... the temps picked up sadly enough but I ventured to Bath & Body Works to grab a couple of candles-  I ended up with a Blackberry one & Tailgate- both of which are delicious & make our home feel like fall. Also, if you are a Bath & Body shopper - the larger candles are 2 for $22.. best time to get them! <3 (Scroll to the bottom of this post to see similar items to what I am wearing at a variety of price points.)

Oh & get this... Gigi's Boutique (one of my favorite online shopping destinations!) wants to giveaway this AMAZING Michael Kors Wrap Watch ($195 value) to one lucky reader of The Sweetest Thing. 
See more of their MK selection.) The photo below is what the watch looks like - soo cute! It's the perfect fall accessory! Use the Rafflecopter tool below to enter. xx.

  3. ❤ the nice jewels and the very pretty watch from the best designer ever because last year I saw live a fashion show from Mr. M.K. imself and wen I did wrote how nice the designs were he did gave me complements and thank me for that.
    I don't have a watch and I dream to wear the most prettiest one the world..... that's this one. So I'll hope that my dream comes true ;-)

    Have a bright day Xoxo

  28. My favorite new arrival at Gigi's has to be the "vintage ivory jumpsuit"! It is such a great twist on a classic jumpsuit by adding lace. I am a big fan of lace so this piece is right up my alley. I can see it being worn many different ways through out the fall and in the spring.
