WILW

Is it really Wednesday already??

Here's to another round of WILW, starting with...

1. This necklace


I bought {this necklace} online from Forever 21. I was a little worried about the quality (especially since it was only $12.80) but it reminds me of a similar J.Crew one so I had to buy it. Well, y'all, the quality is AWESOME. It's so beautiful in person!! And it's adjustable, so you can layer it with other necklaces (statement necklaces, monogram necklaces, etc. etc.). 

2. Pumpkin Spice Chai Lattes


I almost died when I found {pumpkin spice chai latte mix} at Trader Joe's. For those of you who don't like coffee but still want to enjoy a hot, pumpkin-y drink, this is PERFECT! I thought it might taste a little but powdery (since all you do is add water), but it doesn't at all. The recommended amount was a little strong for me, so I simply pour more water into it or a splash of milk to make it creamier. 

My little cubicle at work is always cold as Antarctica, so this always warms up my day :)

3. Peplum


I've been trying not to spend money lately, but I saw {this peplum top} at J.Crew and literally had to have it. A statement necklace, skinny jeans, and boots are all this baby needs, and I can't wait to work it into both my "play" wardrobe and my "work" wardrobe.

4. Pumpkin Pie Dip


Last night my roommates had friends over and we made this {pumpkin pie dip} in a pumpkin. Honestly, I can't even tell you in words how addicting this stuff is. On a Nilla Wafer it tastes JUST LIKE a mini pumpkin pie. I was seriously stuffin' my face and it was not pretty.

5. Still going crazy with leopard print... 

Over the weekend I got a little crafty with my nails and tried out this leopard manicure. It's surprisingly super easy to do!

Would y'all be interested in a tutorial later this week?

Well, I've got to go get ready for work. SO sorry I've been M.I.A. from the blog world lately, I will have some time tonight to read and return your comments. :)

Love, Cait

  6. I love peplum tops! I want one in black! I am also loving that necklace that you have on. There is a line of jewelry {similar to premier} that has necklaces exactly like that and are pricey! Looks identical.

  7. I love your necklace! I am so shocked it was from Forever21! It's always nice to find a great buy! But I am obsessed with the peplum j crew top as well!

    Have a wonderful week!

  9. I can't get into the peplum look. It reminds me of something they'd wear on The Jetsons. I need to try that chai mix!

  10. I MUST try that Trader Joe's pumpkin chai! I found one near where I'm going to grad school and I love it. It doesn't get any better than chai for me, so the combo of pumpkin and chai must be perfect! Also, I love the F21 necklace. I really like the J. Crew one too, but again, can't justify the price with my grad school budget. I'll have to find it! Anyway, hope you're doing well and getting some fall-ish weather down there. My parents actually are down there this week to visit family and I so wish I could have come, but instead, I must study cardiology. Ick. :) Anyway, have a great week girly!

  18. I have been eating something similar with Fage 0%, pumpkin pie spice, and a little SF butterscotch pudding mix....so delicious.

    I love mixing high and low....F21 with something fabulous and nobody will know. I am nervous about this Peplum trend, but also so curious. I may have to try one on.
