Happy Cyber Week!! There have been so many deals this past week and it doesn’t look like the sales are coming to an end just yet.  One of my favorite things to purchase during Cyber Week is outwear!  I just love adding new coats and jackets to my collection and the best time to buy them is during Black Friday and Cyber Week or just after Christmas because they’re marked down quite a bit.

You can shop some of my favorite winter coats below including several similar faux leopard print options like the one I’m wearing above.

The Cozy Gift Guide

Can you believe we’re just a few days away from Thanksgiving?!  Neither can I.  Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday, but it’s starting to feel like it’s almost forgotten with all the Christmas hype already.  We usually wait to put our tree up until the day after Thanksgiving, but I’ve been in the festive mood since last week so we went ahead and put our tree up yesterday.  Last year we purchased a brand new Christmas tree so we were definitely looking forward to putting it up sooner than later.  We still have to get a garland for our fireplace mantle along with a couple more items, but overall we keep it pretty simple with our holiday decor.  How about you? Have you put your tree up yet or are you going to wait until this weekend?

Since I’m in the holiday spirit already, I’m sharing my first gift guide of the season with you and what better gift guide than a cozy one perfect for those days when you just want to lounge around at home in front of the fireplace.

Happy shopping!

Classic in Camel

OUTFIT DETAILS:

COAT: Old Navy | TURTLENECK: Chadwicks of Boston [Similar]| DENIM: Old [Similar] | BOOTIES: Nine West [Similar and Here] | SCARF: Burberry [Similar under $20] | HANDBAG: Louis Vuitton [similar and here] | LIPSTICK: MAC (Faux)

Isn’t it just Unbe-LEAF-able that I snagged this modern classic peacoat for $33 from Old Navy?! I’m a sucker for coats and jackets and I always add several new outwear pieces to my coat collection each year.  Although I do already have a camel coat in a longer length, I just couldn’t resist this cute shorter style for the price to wear with jeans and leggings.

A camel coat is classic and timeless and most definitely a closet staple.  Camel is a neutral color and seriously goes with almost anything and it’s a nice alternative to black or gray.  You can shop some of my favorite styles in short and long lengths from $33+.

Thanks for stopping by! xo

Modern Eyewear and Expert Eye Care in Chicago’s Western Suburbs

Hi guys!  I’m so excited to share this post with all of you!  Last week I had the chance to visit the new and independently owned optical and modern eyewear boutique, Moda EyeCare which is owned and operated by a childhood friend of mine, Dr. Mirjana McCarthy, OD, FAAO.

Dr. McCarthy and I have known each other since grade school.  She, her sister and I, had spent our weekends together for over a decade through our Serbian church and folklore dance group which has led me to know and trust Dr. McCarthy on a personal and professional level (I had gone to Dr. McCarthy for my eye exams back when she was just starting out in her medical profession).  After receiving her fellowship from the American Academy of Optometry, Dr. McCarthy’s dream was to open her own optical that would combine medicine with fashion (hence the name of her optical boutique).  Moda is a European term that translates to fashion. After experiencing first hand how much Dr. McCarthy values her patients, along with her dream of opening her own optical one day, I was extremely thrilled to learn that she had recently opened her own practice.  For as long as I’ve known Dr. McCarthy, she has always been on trend with her sense of style and impeccable taste in fashion as well as interior design; therefore, I knew Moda wasn’t going to be your average eye doctor’s office.

Moda’s modern space carries a curated collection of eyewear with pieces that are hand picked and handmade from designers around the globe such as Christian Roth, DITA, Thierry Lasry and Krewe Gravier, just to name a few (Meghan Markle was just seen in Krewe Gravier sunglasses and Camila Cabello is a huge fan of the DITA HeartBreaker frames).   If you’re looking for a modern optical boutique that uses state of the art technology and carries a line of fashion forward sunglasses and optical frames, then make sure to stop by Moda which is located in the western suburbs of Chicago in Clarendon Hills.  Moda EyeCare is currently offering a 20% off new patient discount (not to be combined with insurance) and they accept most major medical and vision plans.  Patients can also use their HSA or FSA cards for glasses and/or sunglasses.

Aren’t my new Christian Roth sunglasses just oh-so chic?
