Tan and Pink Coat (only $18!!) | Gray Ripped Jeans| Dagne Dover Tote (15″in Bleeker Blush) | Sunglasses | Bracelet Stack  (use code KIMIEWANTSDIOR for 15% off the entire site)

My two latest work-chic staples are this 3/4 sleeve coat and my beautiful Dagne Dover Tote. I love how I can throw this coat on over a casual outfit or a dress and look instantly put together, and I love that it’s $18!

My Dagne Dover was an investment, but so far I’m feeling like it was a wonderful purchase.  I have plenty of room for all my work essentials, including my 15″ laptop which I lug everywhere. Maybe the best part is the internal cup holder that keeps your important stuff dry! I’m totally hooked on this brand!

Whenever the New Year rolls around, I’m always thinking about how to re-vamp my beauty routine. And every year I go to the drug store and buy a box of white strips… There’s nothing better than feeling completely comfortable with your smile, but this year, I tried something totally different! It’s called Smile Brilliant – and if you’re thinking about whitening your teeth, I’m about to tell you why you need to make the leap and try Smile Brilliant yourself!

When you order Smile Brilliant, you get this box with all your supplies – including molds to make your very own whitening trays that fit your mouth exactly.


I was so surprised when my whitening trays came in – they fit perfectly and they’re so comfortable that my boyfriend didn’t even notice I was wearing them when he came over to watch a movie! Check them out – you can barely even see them. Yup, my tray is in my mouth in the photo below!


The whitening is easy, just squeeze some whitening gel into the trays and pop them in. My issue with whitening is that I ALWAYS get sensitivity. Smile Brilliant is the only whitening kit that comes with gel that actually helps to combat sensitivity. Here’s the routine that I used, and that I recommend if you have very sensitive teeth like me.

Week 1:

  • Whitening gel 1 hr daily
  • Followed by Desensitizing gel 15 minutes daily

Remainder of supply:

  • Whitening gel 45 min every other day
  • Followed by Desensitizing gel 15 minutes every other day
  • I also found it helpful not to get my teeth too dry before whitening

So how did it work for me? I was skeptical because I already have really white teeth, so a whitening product has to be strong for me to see any results. This stuff did the trick! My family even noticed when I was home for Christmas. Check out my before and after below – these are completely unedited!! My teeth went from really white with some variation in color to pretty much glowing!

Professional Teeth Whitening

Floral Maxi Dress $18.90 MakeMeChic | Faux Wool Vest $39.95 JustFab | Wrap Lariat Choker $28 HumbleChic | Nude Booties $39.95 JustFab | Moonstone Ring $57 for members at Rocksbox (get a month free with code KIMIEWANTSDIORXOXO)

Living in Dallas, I’ve learned to mix winter and summer pieces.  It’s great for this crazy weather and it stretches my wardrobe (my closet here is tiny!!).

I love this maxi, the floral feels very fall/winter to me, so I thought it looked great with this wool vest – and it’s less than $20. I’m also loving my soft lariat choker because it’s versatile too. You can wrap it so many different ways, although I almost always wear it the way I have it tied in this photo. The one I linked is black – but in my photo I’m wearing a charcoal gray (it’s sold out at one of my fave shops Buddy Love)
