  • A Romper and Margaritas

    The Margaritas

    Hi friends! I hope you all had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend! I had a wonderful time, especially when I got to wear my new romper at the Dallas Margarita Meltdown! We got to sample tons of local restaurants’ margaritas and special cocktails. There were over 40 margaritas to try, but we dropped the ball and missed a bunch when we went to dinner to avoid the rain. There were many takes on a classic margarita, but also a ton of crazy ones (pickle margarita anyone?!)! My favorite was the blood orange margarita, but I can’t remember where it was from! So if any of you remember, please let me know!

  • Tassels at the Dallas Arboretum

    Dallas Arboretum

    Last weekend, my mom came to visit on her way back from San Antonio. The last time she and my dad were here, was for the Dallas Marathon, so we didn’t get to do much (you know, except run 26.2 miles). Prior to December, we visited the tourist spots and did a tour, it was great to explore my city like that. However, while she was in town this time we spent the day a little more naturally. We went shopping in the afternoon, but the best part was going to the Dallas Arboretum for the first time. It was a great way to spend the day, looking at the beautiful gardens and taking photos. It was her idea for the photo of the tassels on my shoes which inspired this post! It was absolutely gorgeous. We wandered around all morning looking for the statues placed throughout the Arboretum. It eventually became a game because we couldn’t find the last one!

  • Target Style x Chambray Dress

    Target Style

    I can’t go into Target without buying at least ten things and spending around $100. It’s the best place because you can find just about anything you want (except ribbon which I needed for this hat). I don’t usually go into the Target Style clothing section for a couple of reasons. First, because it’s dangerous being that close to reasonably priced clothes and second, because I always forget how great the pieces are. Target Style always seems to snag fantastic brand partnerships and has really great regular brands as well.

  • Maxi Skirt Dreaming

    Maxi skirts are an interesting topic for me. I am super proud of my leg muscles, so I usually like to show them off, but every once in a while I find a cute outfit with a maxi skirt that I really end up loving. To be honest, this is the only maxi skirt I own as of now. I have not gotten much use out of it, however, I’m trying to work it into my weekday wardrobe because they are great for the office. They keep you much warmer in the AC than a midi or shorter version would, and they are super versatile. You can dress them up or down, especially this fabric, it’s flowy enough to go anyway I choose!

  • Breakfast at Tiffany’s

    Today I’m showing you this outfit inspired by one of my favorite movies; Breakfast at Tiffany’s! I love the move I have seen it so many times. It’s hard to choose a favorite scene, but the I can absolutely choose the most memorable. I love the opening credits when Audrey Hepburn pulls up to have Breakfast at Tiffany’s in her clothes from the night before with her coffee and pastry, Moon River playing in the background.

  • Nautical and Dotted

    I am not super preppy, but I do love a cute nautical look especially when I can add my style to it. These pants are amazing. They are high-waisted, billowy and polka-dotted (my favorite print)! Since these are high-waisted I decided to pair them with my simple crop top tee, and show only an inch of skin. It is modest but edgy at the same time. I don’t love showing off my whole stomach, so if my belly button is ever in danger of popping out, I probably won’t wear the outfit. These pants are high-waisted, so they are the perfect pant to wear with the top.

  • Derby Dresses

    Happy Cinco de Mayo! I hope you also have plans to sit on a patio drinking margaritas later!

    As much as I would love to talk about margaritas, I really wanted to share a quick post about derby dresses and The Kentucky Derby! Since I was young I wanted to go to The Derby, and while I have still never been, I will be celebrating the day with mimosas and derby dresses!

  • Chambray Dresses and Life Lately

    Chambray Dresses

    Do you ever have those days when you aren’t sure what to wear, you want to look cute, but still be comfortable? This is one of those days. Chambray dresses never go out of style. They are comfortable and easy and really fun style! I have had this dress for years, and I think it is so great how it’s such a classic piece that it looks like I could have picked it up last week! I spiced up the dress with a few accessories like this fun flowered necklace and an extra belt. The dress already had a belt with it, but I wanted a piece to break up the chambray. I’m surprised how much I am really liking the double belt look! Shop more chambray dresses below!
