First things first. I want to talk about the most important part of this post that will benefit all of my Austin family, friends and followers! Joie has been of my favorite brands since back when I was working at Neiman Marcus. I am so excited to partner with them to give y’all an exclusive discount + a $1,000 giveaway! Let me give you the giveaway details before it ends tomorrow morning! All you have to do is head to my Instagram post and follow the entry instructions. It is extremely easy and you could win a $1,000 Joie gift card!
The moment when you realize you started this post 3 weeks ago. 🙄 What a crazy couple of weeks it’s been. I thought I would have extra time to catch up on blogging but work keeps getting in the way! Thankfully, I finally have this week to get some posts together and shoot some new content for you guys! In the meantime, say hello to your must-have summer dress. I know y’all have seen this lace-up dress on my Instagram but I wanted to get a full post up for y’all. This lace-up dress is one of my absolute favorites and its perfect for the extremely hot Texas weather.
That moment you realize you started to write this post May 1 and it’s already the last day of the month. May is always such a busy time for me with work but I didn’t anticipate being booked on so many long jobs along with selling my home, buying another and moving, all during the same few weeks. Talk about exhausting! June, I hope you are a little more relaxing! This girl needs a little pool time in her life! Speaking of summer days by the pool, my latest Splurge or Steal in the May issue of Austin Woman Magazine is out. Like I said, I’m a month behind on sharing this so the issue isn’t even going to be on stands in Austin anymore. BUT you can see these fun pool outfits here, thankfully!
Hello, summer! Even though it’s technically still Spring for a few more weeks. 🤨 It is officially hot in Austin, TX which means it’s time to wear the most minimal yet breezy clothing. I don’t know if the Billy Reid bandana dress I’m wearing in the below photos really counts as minimal but it is definitely breezy and perfect for the hot summers in Texas! In that case, give me all the comfy dresses because it’s only getting hotter!
I don’t know about y’all but I cringe at the thought of spending a lot of money on clothes; especially summer tops. If I’m going to be spending any money on fashion related items I’d rather invest in a nice handbag, shoes or jewelry that will most likely be lasting me a lot longer than said clothing. Or just save my money in general for a fun vacation! But then what cute clothes do you wear on that vacation?? Long story short, it’s my job to find you affordable yet quality clothing that still looks super cute. 😜
As many of you know Grayson and I recently moved out to Lakeway. This was after we had already planned to stay at the Lakeway Resort & Spa so it seemed a bit odd that we would be going on a “vacation” that was only 3 miles away. Man, was I pleasantly surprised. Even though I was only 3 miles from home, I felt like I was in a completely different state. Talk about the perfect staycation!
I used to cringe at the thought of wearing one piece swimsuits when I was younger. One pieces always reminded me of your typical mom suit! Those types of suits that I would never be caught dead in. You know the ones! Shockingly enough, this is the first year that I have EVER owned a one piece swimsuit. I’m so obsessed I literally can’t stop buying them. They have definitely come a long way since I was younger. Y’all know those awful suits I’m talking about, right?? I don’t know what has sparked my latest obsession with cute one pieces. Maybe it’s the fact that I am getting older and don’t feel as confident in a bikini like I used to. Or maybe its the fact that they are so cute and stylish now! Continue Reading
What a week! I have been so bad about keeping up with Instagram and the blog lately with all of this house stuff going on. For those of you that didn’t see the tiny snippet of an Instagram Story I did; we’re moving! I put my house on the market and it literally sold within a few hours. The buyers wanted a 7-10 day close which meant we had to get out of the house ASAP! Needless to say, I have been a little preoccupied with attempting to keep up with work in addition to moving somewhere! There are so many exciting things to come and I can’t wait to share all of the fun details with y’all! We are headed to a much needed stay-cation this weekend so I wanted to share one of my favorite summer looks with y’all; wide leg striped pants.
Summer is all about fun hats and beautiful dresses. There is literally no better way to kick off your summer style than with the Kentucky Derby. Whether you are planning to actually attend the Derby itself or just planning a fun soirée, I’ve got a few looks that are sure to turn heads. Not to mention they are extremely easy to recreate on a budget. So who out there is actually attending the Derby? One of these days I would love to be in the middle of the action but until then I will be glued to my TV watching all of the NBC updates! It’s not only the horses getting all of the attention; it’s the fashion!
It’s that time of the year again! Kentucky Derby party planning is in full swing. If you’re like me you procrastinate anything Kentucky Derby until it’s too late. Unlike most of the prior years, I have taken it upon myself to get a couple of posts ready to share some outfit ideas. Who all is planning to actually go to the Derby?? And who else is throwing a party or going to one?? I’ll just be dreaming about throwing a small gathering since I literally have no home right now! I will be living vicariously through everyone else’s posts this year!
