#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.
