Pinspiration

Hey yall,

So every once in a while when I’m in the mid week slump, I like to post some pinspirational quotes.

And if you’re not following me on Pinterest.. Why not do it? I like food.. A lot.

Coat WishList

Hey y’all,

So here in Texas we rarely need a winter jacket.. In fact, I never really owned a real winter coat until I moved to Arkansas for college – and it was brutal! I normally just live in my north face jacket, but this year I’ve been really into all the gorgeous jackets coming out.. and the best part is that there are a ton for reasonable prices. Spending hundreds on a jacket for a couple months? Ain’t nobody got time for that!

There are SO many different styles out there, but here are a few of my favorites. Be sure to share ones you’re loving with me, too!

Designer Spotlight: Oscar De La Renta

Hey yall,

So I thought it was only fitting to feature Oscar de la Renta in light of his passing last night. He was truly an artist in his design of clothing and it’s so sad! So today I’m featuring some of my favorite recent designs of his in honor of his success.

He lived all over the world, worked for top designers (before becoming one), worked his way through the industry and was an inspiration in the fashion world!

Yes to the Dress

Hey yall,

So on Saturday I had my third and final appointment to find my wedding dress.. Because I finally found the perfect one! It’s such a relief to have that done, especially since we are only about 6 months out. Crazy and so exciting!

I opted for a casual look with jeans and a flannel top but wanted to dress it up with my all time favorite heels and tucking in my top!

Sweater Weather

Hey y’all,

It’s finally sweater weather! It’s actually been really chilly here.. which makes me a little scared for what’s to come in a few months. But I’m loving it now!

I’ve been waiting since last year to pull out one of my favorite cardigans again. I love black and white since it is extremely versatile, but I love some fun prints, too. So when I woke up late for work and needed a quick outfit, this was my go-to. And I took my dog on a walk with Collin after work, which makes any day great :)

It’s really fall!

Hey y’all,

So I have been feeling amazing this last weekend because it’s actually feeling like fall here in Texas! I’m so excited. It’s been in the 50s/60s/low 70s so I’ve been taking advantage of it with my favorite fall clothes, homemade pumpkin spice lattes, and keeping cozy and warm!

Even though it’s cooled down, though, it’s not so cold as to where I HAVE to wear a super thick jacket or anything like that. So instead, I opted for some thinner layers to keep me warm.

Unfortunately, my outfit is either from Ross which I can’t link to or from last year (I haven’t started stocking up this season yet), but I’ll be linking to super similar items!

Fall Must-Haves

Hey y’all,

Suprisingly enough, the leaves are starting to change in Texas already – and when I say changed, I mean those itty bitty tiny small leaves are falling off the trees and aren’t green. But y’know.. I’ll take it!

So now that it’s starting to look more like fall outside, I’m ready to start dressing like it’s fall, even in the 90 degree weather. And given, that is a decent amount cooler than it has been the past few months! That’s kind of sad.. but I love it.

I would rather be hot anyday.. but I’m too excited for fall clothes to not be excited for fall weather!

How to Wear: Faux Leather Skirts

Hey y’all,

So I have always been super hesitant to get a faux leather skirt, even though I’ve always thought they look adorable on other people. This year – I’ve decided that I’m on the lookout for the perfect skirt to get because I love them. But, there is a thin line between cute and trashy.. let’s be honest. So here are a few ways to stay on the cute side of the line when taking the plunge into leather skirts.

1. Keep it an acceptable length and fit. Don’t go for a super mini skirt or a tight body-con style. My favorite are skater skirt types of styles.

2. Pair the skirt with a more conservative top to tone the look down a little bit. A cute crop t-shirt or boxy sweater can give the skirt different styles depending on how you’re feeling!

3. Make the trend fit your personal style! Even though a leather skirt can look edgy, you can make it look any way you want it to. Add a lace top for a feminine flare, or some riding boots for a preppier look. These are so versatile – so take advantage of it.

What do you think about faux leather skirts for the cooler months? Love it or leave it?
