A Summer Dress in December

GET THE LOOK: Yellow Dress (similar, similar, similar)  |  Black Leather Jacket  |  Mustard Yellow Faux Fur Bag  |  Wide-Brimmed Panama Hat  |  Mustard Yellow Tassel Earrings  |  Suede Booties Texas weather — I feel like that’s all I need to say sometimes! Some days it’s 70 degrees and sunny, some days it’s 20 and sleeting. You just never know. That’s why I love keeping some of my summer wear readily available, even when it’s winter. Summer maxi dresses are EVERYTHING to me, so getting to wear them all year around is huge. Simply pair it with your favorite bomber jacket, and your set. I found that adorable clutch at Target, and my panama hat is Target as well. What do you guys think? Am I the only one who keeps their summer gear near, even when it’s chilly out?

Fall Wardrobe: Changing a Look at the Drop of a Hat

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been a hat girl. And I’m proud to say that my third grade school picture can prove it. I wore a massive Blossom-inspired denim hat with a cranberry colored faux floral smack dab on the front. Hats weren’t allowed in school, so I had to pack it in my backpack and wear it only for the picture. I. felt. so. cool. Fast forward a few decades and although my style has changed, my love for hats hasn’t. There were a few years in my twenties that I thought I wasn’t “stylish enough” to “pull off” a hat, but after two kids and my twenties in my past, I pretty much don’t give a crap. I like hats. So I’m going to wear hats. Lots of them, in fact! Today I’m sharing how three hats can completely change the look of one outfit. I love…

Kid Style: Transitioning From Summer to Fall

These kiddos. Man. They just kill me! They’re at such a fun age (they’re 1 and 2) and I’m just loving each and every stage we’re experiencing with them. Well, minus those lovely tantrums of course. We recently moved cities (you can read more about that here) and have been exploring our new hood over the last few weeks. The weather has been it’s normal bipolar self here in Texas, so each week has been completely different. Rain for 2 weeks straight, 80 degrees one day, then 48 the next. Just lovely! Right? Today I wanted to share a bit of my kiddos style and talk about how I’m transitioning their summer outfits into fall outfits. For Harper, I love using summer dresses for fall and simply carrying around a sweater for her in case the nights get a little chilly. I also tend to use Hudson’s summer Ts for…

Amazon Lately: Tassel Earrings

For those of you who don’t know, Amazon is AMAZING. It’s always full of surprises, and sadly, I’ve developed a bit of an addiction to it. I mean — Who doesn’t love getting a box of goodies delivered to their house on a monthly… weekly… er… daily basis? If I can order it on Amazon, I will. Even my jewelry. Though shopping at overpriced boutiques might be a fun afternoon out with the girls, I have a real hard time paying $80 for a pair of earrings that I know I can find online for $15. Heck. Maybe even $10. Especially if they’re trendy like tassel earrings. I have a feeling this look won’t be in style forever, so I really don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for the designer version. I’d much rather get a few pairs in different colors and pay $15 or less for…

Everything You Need to Know About Microblading

For those of you who have seen “microblading” around the internet, but are still wondering what it is, then today is your lucky day. I’ve been wanting to try it for years and I’m so happy I finally took the plunge. Thanks to the AMAZINGLY talented Carrie Hunt of The Browtique, I now have the eyebrows I’ve always wanted. To give you some background, microblading is a semi-permanent makeup that gives your brows a fuller look. It can either fill in “balding” areas (for me, the outer parts of my brows were thinning), or it can simply fill in your existing brows to make them more bold. The technique creates hair-like strokes throughout your brow instead of one single “block” tattoo. The look is incredibly real and very convincing. Before I got mine done, I had seen it done on others and completely thought it was their real brows. So…
