Mock Neck Turtleneck + Monday Mode Link Up

It was such a gorgeous weekend here in Milwaukee, not even the presidential debate could ruin it. I’ve been listening to Regina Spektor’s new album “Remember Us To Life” on my way to and from work lately and her song “The Light” has really been speaking to me. I wanted to share it with you today, and remind you that sometimes we just need to keep trying, keep going and be that light that shines on us. Of course there are days when I am more of a Grand Hotel personage, but remembering that light helps me get through the day ūüôā

I’ve been obsessed with Kohl’s “Own your everyday runway” fall campaign, and I have to admit I own quiet a few pieces from that whole line up, including this Elle mock neck sleeveless turtleneck. It’s the softest coziest fall item in my closet at the moment, and did I mention I have it in 2 colors.


I wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who’s been linking up with us every Monday for Monday Mode Link Up! It means the world to us! Your posts inspire me and help me stay on top of blogging.

Like I mentioned last week, Rachel, Jewel and I will now be picking our favorite posts from last week. These are the two looks that stood out to us the most:

I feel like I’ve moved to Seattle, no really! The soft drizzle of the rain this weekend, not only helped me catch up on my sleep, but motivated me to go to the gym (because what else is there to do?). I’ve been baking and cooking, and roasting squash, you know it must be fall!

This outfit is a combination of my recent purchases, vintage and thrift finds, and the latest turtleneck trend that’s been popping up everywhere!

I hope you had a great weekend, once again, Jewel, Rachel and I are excited to share Monday Mode¬†link up with you, and we can’t wait to see your latest and greatest! Starting next week we’ll be choosing our favorite style post of the week and featuring the blogger in our next week’s post ūüôā Who is excited?

The Outfit: This long vest has been on repeat since I bought it at Kohl’s a couple weeks ago! I absolutely love the versatility and the ease of styling that it brings. I might have to go get the grey one too ūüėČ Distressed jeans are still hot and aren’t going anywhere any time soon. These moss colored Kenneth Cole booties are growing on me, I tend to reach for them more and more every week. And to top it off, I layered my favorite bracelets and a Daniel Wellington watch, because sometimes you need to give FitBit a break. You can save 15% off your next Daniel Wellington purchase with code ‘BEINGZHENYA’¬†– valid through Sept 15, 2016!

Summer has always been my favorite season. Maybe it has to do with my upcoming Birthday, maybe with the warm weather, maybe with the summer travels. I’ve always enjoyed and looked forward to the June-July-August stretch. This year, among other things, I get to spend my summer with¬†a new fragrance – Vera Wang Embrace Marigold and Gardenia.

Vera Wang Embrace Marigold and Gardenia perfume is a way to feel confident and beautiful in your own skin. This newest member of the Embrace Collection empowers me to feel beautiful everyday. Its soft peach color, reminiscent of the first vision of sunlight, enhances my day leaving me feeling fresh and embracing my womanhood.

Fragrance has always been a big part of my life. From playing with my mom’s perfumes in pretty bottles when I was little, to noticing and complimenting others on their choice of perfume, I’ve always been drawn to new scents. I try and find a different fragrance for every time of the year, and this summer Vera Wang Marigold and Gardenia fragrance makes me¬†feel confident, beautiful and desirable in my¬†own skin.

In preparations to celebrate my Birthday I wanted to remind you how important it is to remember to celebrate ourselves every day! There are so many special moments that happen to us¬†that need to be cherished and embraced, but sometimes get ignored and forgotten. I have been using Vera Wang Embrace fragrance to help me remember these moments, maybe it’s a combination of olfactory, maybe my mind is just playing games with me, but I believe in the power of this¬†dreamy fruity and floral fragrance.

Now it wouldn’t be fair if I went on and on about this fragrance and not given you a chance to try it! I-C is hosting a contest for the Vera Wang Embrace fragrance collection pack and you can¬†enter for a chance to win one of ten fragrance kits (A $75 value!). This includes all 4 of the following fragrances:¬†Green Tea & Pear Blossom,¬†Rose & Vanilla,¬†Periwinkle & Iris, and¬†Marigold & Gardenia. The contest closes July 12, 2016, you¬†can enter by choosing a social media sharing option form the social media tool below:
