Transitions

The necklaces I wear hold meaning, and rarely do I take them off. I can’t help but be a sentimental person! My parents gave me the pearl necklace when I graduated from Christ Methodist Day School in the 6th grade. Then they gave me the diamond necklace for my high school graduation. I received the gold pendant from Henry our senior year at SMU, and I don’t think I’ve taken it off once. These pieces of jewelry mark special moments in my life and times of great transition.

Speaking of transitions – grab your favorite sweater, and pair it with a pleated skirt for the perfect transitional look. It may be February, but temps have been in the 70s here. Find the perfect balance with a sweater and skirt combo.

“Are those the sneakers that come dirty and cost a lot of money?” Why yes, they are. My roommate’s boyfriend asked this, and I get his point. I exclaimed, “Do you see these details?” It seems a little ridiculous that these sneakers are distressed and dingy before you even wear them, but I love them even still. If you don’t want to pay full price (and I understand why), consignment is a great option for you. And to be honest, they already look worn, so no one will even know you weren’t the first to wear them. I linked lots of options below!

The Sweater Dress

IMG_1617

| dress | jacket | sneakers | bag | scarf |

I don’t love wearing tons of layers. That’s why I will never survive somewhere that’s average winter temperature is in the 30’s. I can handle it on occasion but prefer the South’s mild winters.  This past weekend, my mom and I visited my brother in Chicago, and Lord have mercy!!! It was eight degrees when we landed. I had to buy a new coat because the one I brought (heaviest I own) wouldn’t suffice.

Last week in Dallas it dipped into the 30’s, and I immediately grabbed this cozy sweater dress. Call me crazy for having bare legs, but this beats the plaid skirt I wore everyday to school growing up. I layered this shearling lined denim jacket to bear the cold. This was the comfiest look for the coldest day!

Thanks for stopping by!

A few of my favorite things

I’ve worn this blouse about 17 times since I got it… And that was last month. You can probably see why I like it so much. It’s different! The combination of many textures and patterns make this blouse a standout piece. I’m constantly on the hunt for something that not everyone has. Something with great detail. And I found it! See the different color ways linked above.

Olive You

I love adding olive pieces to my wardrobe. Olive is both a neutral without being boring and a color without being overbearing. The right olive pieces can be worn year round. Think olive jeans or a military style vest. Both of these can be worn with chunky sweaters in the fall and linen blouses in the spring.

I picked up these olive pants at a consignment store but linked a similar option above. This is another example of something that can be worn throughout the year. As we move toward summer, I’ll style these pants with an eyelet blouse and espadrilles.

Thanks for stopping by!

Western Inspired

| dress: 1, 2, 3, 4 | vest | boots | bag | sunglasses |

Hi Friends! Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I spent lots of time outside enjoying this beautiful Dallas weather.

I want to share this scarf printed dress with you guys. I purchased it about a month ago from the Zara sale, and of course it’s no longer online. I found a few similar options for you to choose from though! I was influenced by the buckles in the print to create a western inspired look. I added my favorite booties and fur vest. Go from day to night, by losing the vest and boots and adding a heel and clutch.
