I’m just going to start this post out by talking about my disbelief with how ridiculous the weather has been in 2018 so far. Not quite the warm welcome I had hoped for this year! It is literally almost May and it is still dumping snow in some locations. I’ve been needing a jacket every morning and evening here in Austin when it’s normally hitting the 90 degree mark! The need for layers or light-weight long sleeves is a must with the cooler weather sticking around. It’s been tough to find date night appropriate looks as I really don’t want to whip out my Fall clothing again. My other option would be to start layering with frumpy cardigans and I really don’t want to go that route either. I want to wear cute summer clothes! Needless to say, I was quite excited to find this black lace dress online.

Is anyone else in full on vacation mode? The travel bug has hit me full force and I have absolutely 0 vacations planned in my near future. First world problems, I know. 🙄 This girl needs a tan on this pasty skin STAT! The summer weather has already hit Austin, TX. That means it’s time to pull out the flip flops, sandals and all the summer goodies! We are already in the upper 70s and 80s! I’m almost scared to think of what our summer weather is going to look like… Definitely into the 100s! In the meantime, while I start dreaming of where I can vacation to, I wanted to share some of my favorite summer staples. Starting with FitFlop!

Hello, Monday! How was everyone’s weekend? Grayson and I had some awesome plans for the weekend to celebrate his birthday. Sadly, none of those plans actually happened! I am such an awful wife and literally got him so sick with the sinus infection I’ve been battling. Instead of resting, we ended up decluttering the house to get it put on the market this week! Not like I have any idea where we are going to go… but I am so ready for another fun renovation project. Now that I have some free time I wanted to get this Ted Baker post up! If you saw any of my Instagram Stories on Friday you saw that there is now a Ted Baker Austin store!
Party in the front, business in the back. If you’ve been reading my blog for even a week you would have noticed that I love a great high low dress or skirt. I briefly touched on my obsession for this style in my last blog post but wanted to dedicate a full story on why high low dresses are the most flattering for every body type. What I love about the high low style is that it has been around for years. It was never an overbearing trend that you had to worry about going out of style.
Happy April, everyone! I feel like I have been so MIA on the blog for 2018. Hopefully y’all haven’t noticed that as much has I have. I don’t know if I just haven’t felt motivated to shoot as much or write content but I am definitely trying to get out of this funk. This has been one of the busiest years of my styling company so it’s been hard to juggle both jobs with such little time to dedicate to both. SO, while I actually have a little free time I wanted to get one of my favorite looks up! I shot this gorgeous high-low skirt set early last month and completely fell in love.
Spring has officially sprung! Does anyone else feel a little unprepared in the Easter dresses department or am I the only one? Easter Sunday is quickly approaching and if you’re like me, you haven’t found that perfect dress yet. I don’t know what it is but I feel like I always have to be in a beautiful dress for church and all of the Easter festivities. Since we all have about 4 days to order our Sunday best I have rounded up my 12 favorite dresses that are perfect for any occasion. They are all under $100 and will arrive to your door before Saturday, but order soon!
Happy hump day, friends! Today, I am throwing it back to my high school days with the “IT” watch I used to LIVE in. Literally. I’m talking about G-Shock watches!! I hope some of y’all remember what I’m talking about so I don’t sound TOO old! These were literally the coolest watches back when I was a teen and are making a major comeback. I had three different watches in all different colors. When I would find a new one, I would wear it for months, maybe even a year without taking it off. I was the biggest tomboy growing up so I would actually wear my watches 24/7; in the shower, sleeping, throughout the day. I even had a gnarly watch tan line when it was time to change to another color.

Let’s talk about one of the hottest new trends that has finally been validated by the fashion industry after years and years. Athleisure-wear. For years, everyone from college students to housewives and practically everyone who lives in Austin is well aware of athleisure-wear. And I mean WELL AWARE. What was just seemingly being lazy and not wanting to actually get dressed, its surprising this athleisure trend has really caught on. Years ago I would never be caught dead wearing work-out clothes outside of my house or the gym. I hate to even admit, I probably wear casual clothing 99% of the time now. Austin is such a casual city that you almost everywhere you go you’re inundated with women in their casual-wear.
This tuxedo cape post has been such a long time coming! I don’t know what has happened to me and my time management skills lately but I have majorly dropped the ball on this one. I shot these photos before the end of 2017 and I am JUST now getting around to posting this gorgeous tuxedo cape and lace top by Laundry by Shelli Segal. Better late than never, right? Guess what?? They are BOTH currently on sale!

I don’t know about y’all but one of the main things I struggle with is finding the best fitting bra or bralette that is comfortable to wear ALL day long. This seems to be an ongoing issue from women all over the world. We keep seeing commercials on finding your perfect fit or even the release of half cup sizes! Well, search no more. I found some great pieces for you guys and I can’t wait to tell you all about them. Now, I know some of y’all like to wear your normal, day-to-day bra, but the ones I always find myself going back to are bralettes; they are stretchy, soft, and of course comfortable.
