Zaful - Champagne Party

The holidays are right around the corner, and to me that means lots of parties! So many cocktails to drink this holiday season. Today I've teamed up with Zaful to share a fun party look you can wear at your next get together!

How fabulous is this I heart Champagne sweater?! Clearly the perfect party sweater, I mean who doesn't love champagne? I like my sweaters a little looser, so I sized up to have room. It's nice that the fabric isn't super thick, meaning you won't get too warm if you're in a small room full of people. It's also a conversation starter! I paired it with jeans & over the knee boots, but you could dress it up with black skinnys & high heeled booties.

I am all about the fur. Fur vests literally have their own section in my closet, so how could I say no to this PINK fur vest. It definitely adds the finishing touch on this party outfit. I also sized up in the vest so that I could put thicker sweaters underneath. The faux fur is super soft and reminds me of the outfits they wear in the show Scream Queens! If you haven't seen that show you need to look up the outfits these girls wear. Totally channeling one of the characters, Chanel, with this outfit. 

Shipping is international for Zaful so allow about 10-14 days, but I loved being able to receive shipment updates on my phone. I was even notified when they delivered it to my apartment. They also give you a 30 day return warranty which makes it easy to swap out for a different size in an item. Perfect if you are browsing for the holidays.. or yourself.

Gamiss ~ Winter Brights

I've teamed up with Gamiss to share some winter brights! Gamiss is an online clothing store with contemporary & trendy fashion apparel. They always have great sales going on so definitely check it out!

This Blue & Orange sweater reminds me of a varsity cheerleading sweater. It is a classic, preppy piece. The best part.. it's super affordable! I've paired it with jeans & over the knee boots to complete the look. I wore it over the weekend to do some shopping & I didn't even need a coat because it was thick enough. The v-neck detailing allows you to show off a cute necklace to finish off the outfit. It is a "one-size" fits all item, but it was loose enough on me to be comfy. I also added this pearl openwork ring for some flair.

Make a statement in this turquoise blue coat! The color is what caught my eye on the site because I love when people have bright winter wear. It is faux fur lined, making it extra warm for those cold nights. I'm wearing a size medium, but I would recommend sizing up so you can add extra layers underneath. The length of the coat is also ideal to create extra warmth. Another way to layer is by adding a scarf. This plaid tassel scarf is so thick & soft! I wore it to pick out our Christmas Tree over the weekend & it definitely kept me warm while still looking fashionable. It comes in so many different colors & is super inexpensive. The perfect stocking stuffer for the holidays!

For all of my items shipping was international, so allow at least 10 days or so. The customer service was also very accommodating. If I had any questions about my order I was able to get in contact with someone really easily! Check out their Facebook Page to keep up with the latest deals!   

What is your favorite way to brighten up your winter wardrobe? 


With winter quickly approaching I've been adding sweaters and long cardigan pieces to my wardrobe. Today I am collaborating with StyleWe.com to share a few outfit inspirations!

At the beginning of November I traveled to Arizona to visit a few of my best friends from high school. This green cardigan was perfect for the plane ride! I was able to throw it on over a tank top so when I got to AZ I wasn't hot, but it kept me warm on the plane ride over. Below I've paired it with a grey tee, jeans & green booties. The sizing is "one size" but fit oversized for me. I love the length because it will keep you super cozy in the wintertime!

This wool blend coat is unlike anything I already have in my closet. The coloring is red & navy with gold roping detail. It definitely makes a statement & is easy to dress up or down. Here I've paired it with a gray turtle neck sweater & jeans, but it would look great with a dress too! This coat is also a "one size" fit, but there is definitely enough room to pair a sweater underneath.

Autumn Lovin with Dezzal

It is finally starting to feel like fall, but I really can't believe we are halfway through October! This season has gone by so quickly which is sad because fall fashion is my favorite. I probably own at least 6 or 7 blanket scarves, countless boots, vests.. you name it for fall I have it.

I loved the opportunity to team up with Dezzal to pick out a few fall items for my closet! The first item I picked was this Black Cold Shoulder Sweater. This sweater was only $45 making it super affordable to add to your fall collection. I've already worn it a few times because the knit is super soft & easy to throw on with anything. The cutouts on the shoulder make it perfect for a date or night out at the bars. I also love how lightweight this top is which really does make it ideal for those nights out. With the black you can really pair it with anything to dress it up or down. They also have a cream color if you wanted something lighter. I recommend sizing up for a looser look!

The next item that screamed fall was this Mustard Yellow Turtleneck Sweater.  This item is also under $50! I was immediately drawn to the color & I always love chunky sweaters for this time of year. The zipper detailing on the side also makes it unique. I was excited because it matched my cheetah booties perfectly! This top comes in a variety of colors including: black, cream, olive green & maroon. With this sweater I would also recommend sizing up. The material is thick so it will definitely keep you warm on those chilly fall nights. 

The shipping time for both items was about 10 to 14 days, which is amazing for international items. It was nice that I received shipment updates on my phone and was able to choose if I needed someone to sign for the package or not. You also receive amazing customer service from Dezzal! They definitely want you to find the right items for your style. The "find my size" feature on the site makes it simple to know which size you should go with. 

Thank you again to Dezzal for partnering with me in this post! What kind of fall sweaters are you craving this season?

Buckeye Belle Boutique

Wow it has been a crazy September so far. I can't believe it is already fall even though it really doesn't feel like it. It's fun to experience new seasons with Miss. Remi. I always wonder how she is going to do in the winter!

At the end of the summer, Remi & I ordered some new toys from Buckeye Belle Boutique! First of all the packaging was adorable! All the toys came in a little pink box with the cutest note!

Remi picked out the Starbarks & Grey Dog Vodka toys! I think it is so cute how they are a play off of real brands. The Grey Dog Vodka toy is hysterical! They all have squeakers & are so durable. She has played with them more than any of her other toys! We even let her keep the Grey Dog Vodka in her cage while we went to a wedding. We figured she would want some drinks too LOL.


I think the Starbarks & Grey Dog are sold out, but they have so many cute other ones like Dog Juilo Tequila.  These Sniffany & Co boxes totally go with the Tay & Co theme! Miss Remi & I also have a discount code for you guys. Use "TAYANDCO10" for 10% off your purchase! This can be used for anything on the site. They just got new fall arrivals too! I definitely have my eye on this camo vest!

Definitely check out Buckeye Belle Boutique & all their fun items. I can't wait to get more stuff for fall!

Bridal Shower

My bridal shower was everything I would've ever wanted and more! My little sister Logan & Mom hosted it for me. It was held a beautiful building called the All Life Center in Delaware, OH. For my outfit I definitely wanted to incorporate white because I was the bride, but I wanted to wear something fun as well. When Jonathan & I went to Philly in February I picked up a colorful Lilly Pulitzer skirt that I ended up wearing with a white blouse & booties!

Before the shower began Jonathan sent over a beautiful arrangement of flowers with a card that said "Looking forward to June 18th". It was so thoughtful of him! As guests arrived there was a choice of champagne, mimosas or a cucumber watermelon lemonade vodka drink. They could also take a moment to write down date night ideas on little flowered sticks & sign their names on little "C" decorations.

Once everyone had arrived we started with a bridal shower game. The game was called How Well Do you know the Bride? Before the shower I had to answer a series of questions about myself. Things like my favorite food, movie, how many kids I wanted etc. It was fun to see what all my friends guessed for each one. After the game we ate a catered lunch of salad, fruit, quesadillas & sandwiches.

We finished out the shower with gift opening which is always fun! Literally I probably registered for the entire Kate Spade kitchen collection at Macy's! I couldn't help it though, it's all so cute!! My mom got us 2 sets of our china to eat our first meal on as a married couple which I though was sweet. Jonathan & I are truly blessed to have so many people that care about us! We received some pretty amazing gifts.

Finally for dessert my sister & mom got monogrammed "C" cookies made! LITERALLY they could be a pin on Pinterest, that is how perfect they were! Guests each took a set of seeds when they were leaving that said "Plant these seeds and when they bloom, remember the love shared today by the bride & groom."

I had so much fun at my shower & I'm so thankful to everyone that could come spend the day with me! Thank you again to Logan & my mom for hosting! Love & miss you both!!
