TGIF, friends! Spring is here and that means it’s time to start shopping for warm weather looks. In celebration of this gorgeous weather, I’m sharing 3 of my most coveted, affordable Spring looks with Gentle Fawn that won’t break the bank. Speaking of gorgeous weather, Texas has apparently decided that we didn’t need Spring and has moved right on into summer temps. It’s been upper 80s and low 90s the past few weeks! I can’t say I’m not enjoying it but that really scares me to think of how hot our summer is going to be… It’s not looking good.
Warmer weather is upon most of us… even though it’s already made its way to Austin and I am MORE than ready to start transitioning my wardrobe to Spring. One of my favorite warmer weather transitional looks is when the weather is nice enough to throw on a pair of booties and shorts with a cami layered under a cardigan. It’s literally a fool proof way to layer and look chic yet staying the perfect temp! Even if you’re not a shorts kinda gal, throw on a pair of jeans like I’ve shown in this blog post. The cami + cardi layered look has been one of the most popular of the season and I really don’t see it going anywhere, even into summer. Maybe it won’t be full on wool or cashmere cardigans but layering bralettes under tank tops will still be all the rage!
Is anyone else blown away that January is almost over… This year is literally going to be over in the blink of an eye and I can’t say that I’m pleased! 🙁 Now that Valentine’s is upon us, it’s time to start planning for that perfect date night look or the perfect look for staying in! Let’s start out with the obvious… Did anyone notice anything different with this post?? Could it be that I am wearing RED?! Now, more importantly, who else is still looking for that perfect Valentine’s Day outfit? If that person would be you then keep reading! Continue Reading
Hands down, this has been one of my favorite looks of 2016 and one of my most talked about thus far! One reason might be because of these amazing wide leg pants that are on SALE!! Seriously, don’t miss out on this amazing deal; from over $100 to $65… All sizes are still available right now.
Now, to more important fashion matters. How amazing is this Henri Bendel bag?? It has been such an honor to have collaborated with them to show off some of their new 2016 Spring bags to all of you! Of course I couldn’t turn that one down. 🙂 I definitely want to show my readers how they can have fun and still be practical with a really fun, metallic bag that they wouldn’t normally wear on a daily basis.
Most of us wouldn’t just go out and buy a super shiny, metallic handbag for everyday use. Metallics are pretty fancy, for the most part and you wouldn’t usually think they would be a great go-to handbag for Spring. I’m here to help you get some use and wear out of your metallic bags or make you want to go out and buy one!
Don’t be afraid of color or shine! (That’s funny coming from the person who doesn’t really wear color) If you are planning to wear colored handbags or something really metallic, try and stick with a more neutral color palette. This gold Henri Bendel really pops off of this white and navy look. To me, this outfit feels very nautical and this handbag complements the rest of the outfit. The bag brings it together to complete the entire look. You definitely want to find accessories that are going to work well with what you are wearing. Overpowering your look with a crazy handbag when you already have on multiple colors or prints isn’t always the best idea. Now, I know some extremely eclectic people who would slay at that type of look, but for the most part, people want to look chic and put together.

Could this striped, blush pink mini be any cuter?? I think not! Once I saw this dress online, I had to have it. Most people saw me wearing this and quickly noticed this was something I normally wouldn’t wear. And everyone is definitely right, I wouldn’t normally wear pink! But there’s still some black, white and stripes mixed in, so it totally works!
Quite a few people have commented to me that they have no idea where they would be able to sport this cute dress around or what they would even wear with it to accessorize. Let me tell you now, this dress is actually extremely versatile and will go with practically everything! Well not everything, but anything black or nude! I paired this dress with black accessories so the blush pink would pop a little more.
This is a great transitional dress into Spring too. I paired this dress with OTK boots and a fedora since it was still somewhat chilly outside in Austin. Once temps warm up a little more I would definitely throw on a pair of cute open toed heels or sandals! This dress is made of a felt material, so I wouldn’t recommend wearing it in the summer! But there are still a couple of months for most of y’all to get some great wear out of it! AND it’s only $53!

I have found the cutest LBD and it is beyond affordable! Just price at $15, this super cozy dress is sure to turn heads! It is the perfect length for a black mini and is made of extremely soft cotton. What sold me on this dress was the amazing attention to detail on the sleeves. I fell in love with the white pleated cuffs and the dainty, black ribbon bow.
Not one for showing legs? Throw on some tights and you will be good to go! Over the Knee boots are another stylish option to keep you warm and covered up! I mean, you just need it anyway because it’s only FIFTEEN dollars!! You can’t even get a healthy meal for that cheap! 🙂

How many of y’all are familiar with Maumero Shoes? For those of you who aren’t, let me introduce you. I came across Maumero while searching for leopard flats and was instantly drawn to this amazing brand. Not only do they have fabulous shoes but they are also a charitable company. 10% of each shoe sale will be donated to one of the participating charities of your choosing. Now, who doesn’t love that?
Maumero’s goal is simple. To make shoes that make a difference in the way you feel with every step. Each shoe is outrageously carefully constructed for comfort with special padding and leather lining. I got my leopard flats in and was hooked! They weren’t only comfortable but they were catching the eyes of other Austinites too!
While you’re here, stick around and check out there website!

It’s all in the details, right ladies? This dress is absolutely no exception. When I saw this dress in a photo online, I knew I had to have it. Not only is it my favorite type of dress; the fit and flare/skater dress, but the attention to detail was amazing. After some searching I found it!!! And guess how much it was… UNDER $40!!! Of course, I bought it… Along with 3 other dresses that look almost identical, but who pays attention to that! 😉

I can’t believe Christmas is next week… How did it get here so fast?? Have I been that busy!? I haven’t even shopped for gifts yet!! Thankfully, I have all weekend to get that done and will definitely be taking advantage of this ONE day off I have!
In the meantime, I wanted to share my love for these jeans I have on! I am big on amazing jeans and if they don’t fit right you wont see me in them at all! So, if you ever see me posting jeans, you know they’re amazing and totally worth it!! This particular pair is from Cult of Individuality and fits AMAZING. I will tell you straight if I dislike a pair and these are the perfect softness and aren’t too thick or stiff. Perfect in my book!!

Oh, and how great are these shoes from Sole Society?! PERFECT for New Years!!! Not too tall and not too short. They are the most comfy shoes I think I own!
Who’s ready for the holidays?! This girl!!! This is the first of three posts showcasing my favorite holiday get-ups that are sure to be show-stoppers! Not only that, but they will be extremely comfortable as well. As you know from the last post, I am all about comfort! So, if I am going out to celebrate the holidays and/or New Years, I need something that is going to allow me to stand for hours and still stay comfy.
This first dress is the perfect holiday outfit that gives a small hint of sexy in the side cutouts without going overboard. I am extremely conservative with my wardrobe and absolutely fell in love with this cute dress. You can throw on some OTKs or black pumps to show off those legs or throw some tights on underneath if you are cold. Extremely versatile and very affordable!
