I hope you had a great weekend! I spent much of mine celebrating a friend’s upcoming wedding in Palm Beach. I can’t wait to share pictures with y’all this spring. Of course, Henry and I found our way to Katy Trail Ice House because it was an absolutely beautiful weekend, and well, why not?!

I wore this look about a week ago when I had a fun client coming in for a Style Appointment! We had the best time putting together casual weekend and elevated holiday looks! She felt beautiful and couldn’t have been more excited about her new fall and winter pieces!

These navy suede booties have been a staple for me over the last couple of years. I love them with skirts and dresses and of course with jeans. PLUS they are the perfect color for SMU games! In fact, this is the look I wore to our homecoming game this past weekend. Can you tell I’m proud of our ponies?! Anyway, if you’d like to add something similar to your wardrobe, shop the links above and below! You’ll be surprised with how much these booties go with! P.S. My blouse is on major sale!

I’ve loved seeing the way other stylists and bloggers have worn pointed toe booties this season, so I decided to incorporate a pair into my wardrobe. The rich brown/caramel color goes with almost everything and the heel height is perfect for all day wear. I can’t wait to wear these booties with all black, pleated midi skirts, my go-to skinnies and more! Stay tuned for more ways to wear them!

Want the leather look?

Leather pants are a statement piece for fall, but let’s be real, they aren’t in most people’s budgets. A fashionable and budget-friendly alternative is the coated jean. I’m wearing a rust colored pair that I picked up at a local Dallas boutique, but I linked the exact pair above. Dress them up with a silk blouse and heels, or dress them down with an oversized sweater and sneakers. Below are a few of my other favorite coated jeans if you want to introduce this statement piece to your fall and winter wardrobe!

My favorite coats of the season

I’m turning into my mother… Love you, mama! She loves coats and so do I. I’ve scoured some of my favorite sites to find you the best of the best – these coats are fabulous! Add one or two of these to elevate your wardrobe this season! Many come in a variety of colors, so be sure to click the links below each picture. The one I’m wearing above is a favorite from last year, but I’ve linked this year’s updated version.

Stay warm in style!

Happy Wednesday, friends, and go Astros! Henry has converted me into a ‘Stros fan, and here I am wearing bright orange for them! This week my life is devoted to the World Series as they try to clench the title again.

You saw this sweater styled a little differently back in April. Today I added my go-to silk scarf and these ivory booties as we head into cooler temperatures here in Dallas. Recreate this look by shopping the links above!

Flow Hydration

Today, I want to share Flow Hydration with you! I try to drink a lot of water each day, and I feel best on the days that I do. I keep a large Yeti water bottle at my desk and fill it twice throughout the day. I also drink water before I go to work and of course after – while exercising and with dinner.

I’ve added Flow Hydration to my morning routine, and I LOVE it! Flow is mineral-rich spring water that is delivered in a sustainable container. You can say goodbye to plastic bottles! They offer flavored water options too! If you’re interested in trying it out, use the code SanfordStandard15 for 15% off your order!

Thanks Flow for the delicious water!

Light Blue Moto Jacket

Happy Monday, friends! First I need to give my SMU football team a shoutout! They are 7-0, ranked #16 and becoming Dallas’s team one week at a time. This couldn’t be more exciting to watch!

I bought this light blue leather jacket back in the summer because I thought it would be a great piece to wear to an SMU football game. Well here were are in the middle of October, and it hasn’t been cool enough on game day to wear it. BUT when that day comes, you better believe I’ll have it on cheering loud for my ponies. Hopefully we can make it 8-0 this week against Houston! Pony up!
