OOTD- New scarf!

Hi, everyone! I can't believe it's been a week since I posted anything!

I was not planning on taking a week off from blogging, but I guess that's life!

I ended up taking a very impromptu and unexpected one day mini vacay that was AMAZING.

I've planned trips with a week or two to spare, but I don't think I've ever mentioned an idea for a road trip at 10:00 at night and then hit the road 12 hours later.
The spontaneity totally added to the fun.

I'm back now and so excited to share with you the goodies I got from during the Just Add Color Fall Swap hosted by Jessica and Ashlee.

I got paired with Jinny from A Girl In the Real World.

She is such a sweet girl and you can't read her blog without smiling.

My package arrived in the mail and I could not get that thing open fast enough!

Inside was the most GORGEOUS purple scarf that had SPARKLES all over it!
It was perfect for me because

1. I LOVE sparkle and/or bling
2. I LOVE purple
3. I don't have any purple scarves
4. I don't have any scarves with sequins all over
5. I wear a scarf every single day when it's cold outside

In case you can't tell - I really LOVE this!

Another exciting item was ...drum roll please.... my first ESSIE nail polish! I am so excited about this! I have coveted the brand for SO long, but have never had one to call my very own.
None of the drugstores in my small town carry it and every time I go to Target I am already spending way too much money to justify buying a bottle.

I really love this color- Gray is definitely one of my faves and I think it looks so cool on nails. Plus, I love gray and purple together so I can't wait to rock this scarf/ nail combo.

The scarf up close:
Paired with one of my favorite hoodies and a gray beanie. The first of many wearings, I'm sure.
Here it is- the one and only...
My camera was giving me problems, but the name of this beauty is "Power Clutch" and it's the perfect shade of gunmetal gray.

Overall, I got a great partner and a great package! Thank you so much Jinny, Jessica and Ashley, this was SO much fun!!
