Happy Saturday!
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and are enjoying your weekend. I recently got this stunning maxi from KTR Collection and I couldn't wait to style it. The colors and floral pattern were so beautiful that I decided to let the skirt be the star of the show. I paired it with a crop top, silver accessories and strappy sandals. This look made me feel extra sassy - perfect for the weekend.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thanksgiving Tablescape

Photos by: Jonny Villanueva

Happy Thanksgiving eve! 
For today's post, I enlisted the help of my dear friend, Annette of A Vintage Splendor. Her blog is filled with everything from vintage fashion finds, to delicious cocktail recipes and even easy entertaining ideas. So I knew that she would be the right person to ask for help with decorating for the upcoming holiday. I really wanted to put together a beautiful tablescape for Thanksgiving dinner, since I'm hosting my family this year, so we mixed a variety of things together to achieve the perfect look. First, I added some faux fall foliage with leaves, pumpkins and gourds to the center. I then mixed in candles with different heights to add texture and bit more of a romantic vibe. Since no centerpiece is complete without fresh flowers, I decided to pick up a few of my favorite styles. Roses, sunflowers, mums and babies breath came together perfectly in gold, glittery, (diy) mason jars and with Annette's expertise, we created the perfect arrangements. Once the centerpiece was complete, we moved on to the place settings. We stuck with neutral plates and gold chargers for a subtle yet glamorous vibe and added in a pop of color with green and white patterned napkins. To top it all off Annette suggested that we add in a touch of fresh rosemary - so brilliant! It was a lovely finishing touch and it made the napkins smell amazing! The very last detail was to make the table a bit more personal, so we wrote down a few things that we are thankful for a spread them throughout the centerpiece. Now during dinner, this will serve as the perfect reminder as to what this holiday is all about and it will encourage my family members to share what they are most thankful for. With this beautiful table I am even more excited for Thanksgiving!

I hope you have a wonderful holiday filled with family, friends, laughter and love! Be sure to take a peek at Annette's amazing blog

Happy Friday! 
The holiday's are just around the corner and I couldn't be more excited because you know what that means -- party dresses! Rachel Allan's dresses, jumpsuits and gowns are absolutely stunning and they will have me sparkling right into the new year. For today's look I paired my off-the-shoulder top with a matching pencil skirt added in glamorous stud earrings, silver pumps and a cozy faux fur stole. 

Are you as excited about holiday looks as I am? 

Have a great weekend!

Happy Wednesday! 
I've been wearing pink on repeat lately so I just wanted to share this recent look with you all. White denim & a cozy scarf made my pink coat extra cozy and a little unexpected for fall. 

I hope you're having a great week!

Dreaming of Diamonds

Dress: ASOS (also loving these styles here & here), Faux Fur Stole: ASOS (similar), Earrings: H&M, Bracelet: Claire's, Clutch: Charming Charlie, Shoes: Kate Spade, Rings: Engagement Ring, Band 1, Band 2Right Hand: Band 1, Band 2
It's true what they say, "diamonds are a girls best friend". Maybe it's the way they sparkle, or the way that their beauty never fades. One thing is for sure, a girls engagement ring is the most important diamond that she'll ever own. So why not make it an extra special piece? Kirk Kara's rings are just that. Their designs are one of a kind and offer a subtle vintage flair. If you've been reading A Keene Sense of Style for a while then you know how much I love vintage clothing and accessories and how styles from decades past inspire outfits that I wear everyday. To showcase Kirk Kara's gorgeous rings I wanted to put together a look that was vintage inspired. What better way to do that than with one of my favorite silhouettes - an a-line midi skirt! I styled this gorgeous blue satin dress with a faux fur capelet and sparkly bow pumps. Although I'm not engaged, I certainly know where to send my groom-to-be to look for rings once I am. Wink wink. 

Thanks so much for reading my blog!
