Who thinks you can only wear little black dresses during the cooler weather? No way!! If you know me you know that I live in black, white and 100 shades of grey no matter what the weather. I also always love investing in pieces that can transition into multiple seasons so I know I’m getting my money’s worth. Investing in clothing is something that I really don’t like doing so this post is ALL about affordable LBDs. Plus, my favorite WAYF lace-up that I feature in this post is on sale for literally $50. If you love a great fitting LBD with gorgeous details I would highly recommend checking out this dress and it won’t break the bank!
Sweater weather is coming to an end here in Austin, but that doesn’t mean its the end of my sweater wearing! Mega hot temps won’t be here for months so I always love to throw on a slouchy sweater, bralette, shorts and a cute pair of booties when its a little chillier. Most people are still in full on winter-wear mode so this post also applies to all of y’all!! I’ve rounded up my favorite sweaters that are ALL under $100 and are neutral enough that they will go with any color jeans, skirts, tights, etc. you want to wear!
How is it already mid February and why does it already feel like summer in Texas?? I honestly don’t think we had more than a month of winter-like temps the entire Fall/Winter season. How can I complain though… Any opportunity to enjoy 75 degree weather is ok in my book! That means I need to step up my Spring wardrobe already and I’m not even close to being ready! I did recently score this gorgeous off-the-shoulder top from Chicwish and it has been my first, real Spring purchase! And I am SO excited about it!! Just look at that detail!
Who else agrees that 2016 was the year for Gucci?? They are KILLING the fashion industry right now. First, it was the who’s who of blogging sporting the new GG belts, then the new leather cross-bodies and now almost every single person I follow is sporting something Gucci whether it is a bag, belt, flats or all of the above. I wasn’t going to be that blogger that was going to succumb to being like everyone else, but I literally can’t stop obsessing over EVERYTHING Gucci right now. I literally want it all. If I was mega rich, I would totally have it all! But until then I will stick to my most coveted piece from the collection; the Gucci GG Marmont.
Another day, another striped outfit. But who doesn’t love an amazing striped dress that is actually affordable? I know we are all anxiously awaiting the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, BUT it’s literally all pre-fall… And last time I checked, it’s still 100 degrees here, so I’m all about shopping for summer clothes still!
Hello, peek-a-boo LACE! One of my favorite trends, that doesn’t seem to be going out of style anytime soon, is a great lace top, dress, or in this case, a lace set! I know y’all are probably so sick of me posting this outfit, but it is seriously one of my favorites!
Who else is obsessed with the Pantone color of the year?? I’m normally not one for pink but I cant get enough of this gorgeous neutral. I purchased this high-low maxi dress last year at Target and never new it would be such a HOT color!! I have linked some amazing maxi dress options below for all of you ladies who are in the market for a blush pink dress!
This color is the perfect neutral and an easy transition from winter to fall. Just not that into pink?? Throw a leather jacket or scarf over the dress so it breaks up all of the pink color! As most of you have seen, I’m not much for pink either but can definitely tolerate this gorgeous color with a few other neutrals mixed in. Still not convinced you can pull pink off?? Throw some badass shoes with it so people are more focused on the amazing shoes than the pink dress!

I still can’t believe it is already 2016! And mid January, at that! Is this year going to go by just as fast as 2015?? I’m hoping not…
This was one of my last shoots of 2015, and boy was it a crazy one! We were headed back from Mammoth and had seen this old ghost town on the drive up there. Grayson and I thought it would be such a fun place to try and shoot an outfit if we had time on the drive back to LA. As we start to make the long trek back we literally creep on every town that looks overly rundown and desolate. We finally found the perfect one that had 5-6 old houses fenced off with Private Property signs. This place was literally right off the highway so fingers crossed no one felt like reporting us. We walked around the entire place trying to find the perfect area to shoot and definitely found some interesting stuff going on there! Not only were there old clothes, bed sheets and just crap in general, there were water leaks, broken glass, and fallen down walls EVERYWHERE! It was pretty sketch. But we shot long enough to get some good photos until cars started pulling up and watching us… Talk about creepy!!
It was such a blast and a fun story to be able to tell! And I had the perfect coat from SheIn to shoot! I think it was the absolute perfect look for this location.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!!
How was everyone’s holidays? We headed up to Mammoth Lakes on Christmas to spend a few days in the snow! If you didn’t noticed from my previous Instagram photos, I LOVE the snow! Like giddy child, love the snow! I used to go to Colorado multiple times a year as a kid and young adult to hike, mountain bike and ski. It’s been a while since I have actually been in tons of snow! Mammoth was dumped on the week prior to us coming so it was perfect and even snowed on us the day we got there. We don’t get any snow in Austin so any chance I have for a white Christmas; count me in!
I finally got to bundle up and be a frozen snow bunny! The day before we left for this trip I found the cutest fur trimmed hooded jacket at Banana Republic that was on sale and then 50% off of that!! PSSTTTT… They’re sale is still going on!
GUYS! I can’t believe Christmas is tomorrow. Who else think the holidays got here WAY too fast?? It feels like summer was yesterday! I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year surrounded by your family and friends.
Grayson and I decided to pack up and head to California to see my family and then head up to the mountains in Mammoth for a little Christmas snowboarding! Can’t wait to be back up in the snow since we get absolutely 0 in Texas. Speaking of no snow in Texas, it is literally 80 degrees right now!! :/ No dreaming of a white Christmas there!
I do remember one year about 6-7 years ago and it actually snowed a ton ON Christmas Day in Fort Worth! It was so magical and fun being surrounded by family, cozied up next to the fire while it snows outside.
Enough of me rambling!! I wanted to post a super cute dress that I found at H&M that is perfect for winter and spring! Not only can you make this cute dress a little dressier, but you can also make it quite casual in the summer as well. Extremely versatile and it is extremely comfortable! And the best OTK boots are on sale for $157!!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS, everyone!!
