Who else is overjoyed it is Friday?? I wish I could say my weekend will be relaxing but I am about to start prepping on another big commercial that is shooting in San Antonio next week. One of these days I will have some time off to decompress, but in the meantime there is important shopping to do! 😜 Season after season a great pair of booties is always a must have to finish off any Fall/Winter look. Instead of making everyone have to browse the Nordstrom website I have rounded up my top 8 pairs of nude booties that are all under $100 and super fabulous!
How was everyone’s Monday?? I just made it back home after a very uneventful 4 hour drive back to Austin. It’s always so nice to take some time off and go visit my dad and step-mom for a few days. The weather and Fall foliage were both so beautiful while I was there I couldn’t help but shoot a few outfits for y’all! If y’all didn’t know from watching my Instagram Stories, my dad has been building his dream home for the past 2 years and it is finally almost complete! I have been so obsessed with this house since I first saw the plans that I couldn’t help but use it as the background to show off this floral moto jacket!
Hello Sunday! How was everyone’s weekend? I decided to drive up to my dad’s house in Colleyville to celebrate my aunt’s and grandmother’s birthdays. Grayson was in Florida playing his last tournament of the season and I had a few days off so figured, what the hell. It has been too long since I have been up here to see everyone and help with my dad’s house. Time always flies by so fast when I am up here. Even though I’ve been up here for 5 days it feels like I just got here and am already leaving to go back to Austin. Spoiler Alert – I do feel like I am going to end up moving here in the near future. If you saw any of my Stories over the weekend you’ll know why. Just look at the photos in this post! This ranch was about 5 houses down from where they live and was absolutely breathtaking. More like picture perfect.
Happy First week of November!! I can’t believe Christmas is less than 2 months away yet it is still in the upper 80s in Austin. Where is our cooler weather?? We got chilly weather for about 2 days and then it was back up to almost 90 today! Despite the warm weather I think I am more excited for the holidays this year than any other year before. There’s just something about the leaves changing, holiday music already playing, the Starbucks holiday cups and the overwhelming selection of holiday decor everywhere I go. I can’t deny the fact that I’m already out shopping for things I don’t need. It’s time to make the Hargrove/Goff residence a winter wonderland come next week!
Cardigans seems to be a must-have season after season, especially in Texas. Learning to layer is crucial during the Fall when the weather starts out in the 40s and ends up in the 80s. Why can’t the weather just cooperate and actually give us a true Fall season?? In the meantime, it’s time to stock up on basics to layer up with without breaking the bank. I’m all about saving money when it comes to purchasing clothing so I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite ivory/nude cardigans under $100 from Chicwish. All you have to do is click on a product in the scroller to shop!
As I’m sitting down to write this post, I’m attempting to watch Sex & the City 2 and plan out my Friday lunch date but just remembered the temps are going to be in the 40s tomorrow and mega windy… WHY?! Why can’t we get cozy Fall weather without the hurricane winds?! I am thankful for the cooler weather and that I actually get to bundle up to do a little shopping and lunching so I’m a happy gal! Rosé all day! On another note, I am extremely excited for this blog post and outfit because it is one of the first I actually shot where the weather wasn’t extremely unbearable.
Ever been stumped on what to wear to a wedding?? As a stylist, I get that question ALL the time. I wanted one of my recent Ask Ashley articles to not only be informative on how to be the best dressed guest but to also show photos so you can actually get an idea of what types of wardrobe work for multiple types of weddings.

Can I just start out by saying how excited I am that it is FINALLY feeling like Fall in Austin?? I mean for Texas, that is completely unheard of in October! I’m mainly extra excited because this weekend is DogToberFest and it is going to be such a beautiful day if it doesn’t rain… Sadly, we’ll be back to the upper 70s and 80s in a few days but I am overjoyed that I can step out of the house in my Fall uniform without looking completely ridiculous! When the weather gets chilly enough I live in my chunky sweaters, skinny jeans, suede booties and an amazing hat!
Y’all ever get that feeling when you order what seems like 1 million sweaters online and the next day you wonder if they have anything new so your back online shopping hoping to find something you can’t live without?? Then you see that they have updated their site with a gazillion cute sweaters you just HAVE TO HAVE so you order even more of them only to get packages with 20+ sweaters and no money in the bank? Ya, I know that feeling all too well. In the spirit of shopping for this beautiful Fall weather I’ve rounded up 20 affordable sweaters under $100 that will keep you warm & chic all winter long AND they won’t break the bank.
I literally write this in all of my roundups but really, how is it October?? I feel like I just did my last Instagram roundup a few days ago and not it’s already time for another! Even though the weather is scorching in Texas still I have tried to incorporate as many Fall looks into my Instagram and blog as I can. I’ve rounded up the top posts from September that all have products still in stock and ready to shop!
