Dressed Up with a Utility Jacket

TGIF everyone. I've been a little under the weather these past fews days and it is not fun, stay warm and healthy everyone! My voice is raspy and I find myself singing the "Smelly Cat" song that Phoebe sang in Friends in my head. (hehe...) So I am going to take it easy this weekend and hopefully have a quick recovery. 

My wedges giveaway with Elaine Turner is ending Monday at midnight so don't forget to enter and good luck. After the Elaine Turner giveaway, I am excited to announce another giveaway! Calling all petite wrists readers!! Are you tired of bracelets slipping off your wrist because they are too big? Well, I have partnered with genius jewelry designer Julie of YuniKelley, who designs and makes gorgeous jewelry for petite wrists! Look out for that giveaway mid-next week. :) She is also offering my readers 20% off with promo code: "CONNIETANG"

This Linea Pelle belt is seriously my favorite belt, I style with it all the time, dressed up (like in this pairing) and dress down (seen here and here). They recently released their collection for Fall and the colors are so rich and gorgeous! Have a look here and get 15% off full priced items now through August 31st with promo code: "CT15".
