Suedette Midis and Vintage Heels



Suedette skirts are still one of the most trendy items this season, and what better way to style a midi skirt than with a pair of vintage heels! The classic cuts and colors of this Chicwish top and skirt make a perfect winter pairing for this 70 degree winter weather we've been having!

My Madden Style



The Madden Girl collection at Kohl's has been my favorite this season with so many fun winter finds for all styles! Here's three looks I created with so many cute pieces from the collection!



Look 1: Madden Girl fur collar poncho // This look is warm, cozy, and classic! I love the simple design and various textures in this poncho. It's a great versatile cover up for the colder days, and perfect for our winters here in Florida where it's cold out but not quite cold enough for a coat!



Look 2: Madden Girl beige flyaway vest, Madden Girl lace-up ankle boots // This look is another one that is great for winter but still appropriate for our Florida winter weather! This fuzzy vest is so warm when paired over a turtleneck, and I've been so obsessed with tan lace-up boots with this style lately!



Look 3: Madden Girl buffalo check hooded jacket // The colors, checked print, and toggle closures all make up the perfect winter jacket with this piece! It's the perfect go-to winter jacket that's never going to go out of style!

A Sparkling Dress and Sparkling Smile for the Holidays!



I can't imagine the holidays without sparkly dresses and a sparkling smile to go with them! Getting ready for the many holiday parties I attend around this time of year are very important to me, because I just want to look my best for all of my friends and family to see! As I'm getting ready, it's so easy to just place some Crest 3D Whitestrips on my teeth and by the time I'm done getting ready, the 1 hour express whitening strips have brightened up my teeth so much and I'm ready to go! Using Crest Whitestrips is much easier than at-home teeth whitening kits and much more time-efficient as well. Save your money from going and getting a whitening and try these out -- I promise you I'll never whiten my teeth any other way!

I've always believed that your smile is your best accessory, so it's good to make sure your teeth are sparkling and your smile is bright! I am so excited to share with you all that right in time for all of your holiday parties, you can pick up a BOGO pack of Crest 3D 1-Hour Express Whitening Strips from Walmart and show off that holiday smile!

Feeling Fall in Madden Girl!



The fall weather has came in extremely late here in Florida, but if you're a Madden Girl like I am, the cold weather won't ever come as an issue! I've been stocking up on Madden Girl's fabulous line of outerwear, accessories, and cute boots to get my wardrobe ready for the holiday season! This jacket is one of my favorite pieces from the line, it's just so versatile and can be styled so many different ways! Today I styled it with a plum colored dress and thigh-high boots, and tomorrow I will probably style it all over again with jeans and my favorite flannel. With it's adorable utility style, there is no limit to how you can style this cute and incredibly warm jacket which is why I'm so in love with it!

Wearing: Madden Girl via Kohl's jacket, Others Follow dress, Not Rated boots, MAC matte lipstick in "stone".

#OOTD: Think Pink!



October was breast cancer awareness month and I'm ending off this month in a bright pink dress from Shabby Apple! Along with this beautiful classic fit-and-flare dress, I put on two three-strand pearl necklaces to give it some extra detail along with these extremely flattering heels from Nina shoes.

Wearing: Shabby Apple dress (it's on sale!), Nina Shoes heels.

#OOTD: Fringed Knits

Oh, fall... there are so many things I love about this season that sound so cliche but I can't help how I feel. Since I live in Florida I have to do a lot of pretending in order to experience my own little ideal fall season, such as buying extra pumpkin candles and drinking lots of hot lattes to remind myself that it's still autumn despite the fact that it's 80 degrees outside. But then again 80 degrees is "cooler" weather for us Floridians. Anyways, this past week was a bit windy and I didn't melt to death in this sweater which was great news! Speaking of which, how amazing is the fringe detailing on this Others Follow sweater? I have a countless amount of knit pullovers, but none quite as cool and fun as this one!

A Day in My Life with Zing Zero

This post is sponsored by Zing Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener and Her Campus Media. All opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that make A Walk in the Park possible!



On most days, my life isn’t filled with the ideal fashion blogger schedule that I possibly look like I would have, but more with the hustle and bustle of the weekday grind. Not every waking moment is focused on fashion for me, but I do focus on my health each day and I find ways to enjoy the little things I love most, such as my coffee!

I start off each morning with a cup of coffee in hand, but my terrible addiction leads me into sometimes 5 cups throughout the entire day. I’ve thought about giving it up, but that’s NEVER going to happen, so attempting to make my coffee better for me is the only option I have. As for a coffee sweetener, I’ve turned to Born Sweet® Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener to give my coffee a great taste without the guilt, and for me it doesn’t stop there. Instead of loading up on too much sugar each day, I’ve replaced a lot of that with some Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener, and in my opinion it’s the best non-artificial sweetener I’ve ever tried!



So in the morning, I grab my cup of coffee to go and I’m out the door. I throw my little box of Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener in my bag as well, and bring it on the go as well. I use it all throughout the day while I’m working from coffee shops, out with friends, and even when I’m grabbing a post workout smoothie. It’s become second nature to me to just put some Zing™ on everything I need sweetened in order to get a perfectly sweet taste without the guilt and without the bitter taste from most artificial sweeteners! I telling you all the honest truth I say this stuff is AmaZing! I encourage you all to visit the Zing™ site and request your own free sample to try!

#OOTD: Effortless Fall Staples


I've always had trouble finding my specific personal style... I love just being the style chameleon that I am. Lately however I've been finding that most of my looks have a slight edge to them, and I think my rock 'n' roll heart brings that out in my style. In this look I've got all of my fall staples, the flannel, the fringe, the booties, and I somehow gave them a bit of an edgy twist. This cool yet comfy look will be often revisited throughout this upcoming season. 

Wearing: Cotton On tee, Flying Monkey x East & Lo denim, Aeropostale flannel, AMI Clubwear booties, T-Shirt & Jeans fringe bag.

#OOTD: 70s Glam


A glam 70s look is always going to be a personal favorite of mine... it's a look that I feel very "myself" in. I'm ready to take on this fall in many pretty blouses and flared pants!

Wearing: Chicwish blouse, Thrifted pants, H&M belt, Zara boots, Chapel Hats hat, ZeroUV sunglasses, Vintage Gucci bag (similar). 

---------------------------

If you're trying to achieve the ultimate 70s style like I am this fall, feminine blouses with a front tie are the ultimate go-to glam piece to wear with your favorite flared pants or even latered underneath a 70s-inspired dress. Take a look at some of these other cute and affordable blouses:

1. This floral top would look best paired with a burgundy suede skirt... SO in love!
2. A white blouse with a black tie is an instant modern classic.
3. Snakeskin prints give this top a perfect mix of feminine and edgy style.
