Tweed Please

Today’s post is a combination of old pieces that I put together to create a new look. These are all classic pieces that you should keep in your wardrobe. A chambray top is something you can wear any season and with any bottom. The camel vest is the perfect layering item to complete all fall and winter outfits, adding style but not bulk. And of course, every girl must own a tweed skirt.

I did receive this vintage Chanel brooch for Christmas that I’m excited to style. Adding it to this outfit, completed the classic and timeless look.

Try creating a new outfit with old pieces this week! This will bring new life to your wardrobe.

Coated Denim

I’m a little late to the coated denim trend, but I’m sure glad I made it. Every premium denim brand makes their own version of a coated jean, but these bad boys are my favorite. The combination of the high rise and the sheen make for a great leather legging alternative.

When I think about adding a garment to my wardrobe, I make sure it is versatile. I have the ability to dress these up and down. I paired them with my GG sneakers and a tee for work (shown), but I dressed them up with a silk blouse and heels for dinner with Henry.

What do y’all think about coated denim? Do you own a pair?

Fall’s Sundress

You may think your sundresses must be stored away until next spring, but you’re wrong! While the seasons are still changing, and it’s warm outside, wear them! BUT, instead of adding your go-to sandal, throw on a suede bootie and maybe even a jean jacket. This is a great way to transition your look from Summer to Fall.

I also need to give a shoutout to a few of my friends for giving me these fun earrings for my birthday!!! Click the link above to get your own.

Thanks for stopping by!

I just recently purchased these fabulous resin earrings and have worn them almost everyday since. They are so light that I forget I’m even wearing them, AND they were a great price. You need a pair too!

How adorable is this dress?? I wore it for the first time Easter Sunday and didn’t want to take it off. I wasn’t familiar with this brand until I bought this dress, but now I’m obsessed! Each of Ganni’s pieces has great detail and pattern. Unfortunately, this dress is no longer available, but I linked similar options by the same designer!

Moving on to my outfit details… I bought this top at a local Dallas boutique, Esther Penn, and I did my best to find it online. Of course I couldn’t, so I tagged similar products. You can’t avoid ruffles this season, so why not go big, even if it does look like I’m about to fly away. These jeans are the ULTIMATE flare, and they are on sale! Get my look by shopping the links above.

 

Florals, For Sure

I’ve been traveling more than usual, so that explains why my blog posts haven’t been as consistent. But now that I’m back, I wanted to share some fun pieces for spring.

First of all, florals and ruffles are HOT. Both of these trends are a must this spring and summer, so I’ve linked a few more of my favorites below. I’m also in-love with these white resin earrings! They pop against any hair color and match every outfit. Don’t forget to check out the embroidered straw clutch above. You can always count on Hazen and Co to spice up your accessory game.

Chambray Shirting

A chambray shirt can do wonders for your closet. Not only does it go with everything, and I mean everything – even that dressy pleated skirt you have hanging up, but it is also transeasonal.

Imagine yourself on a brisk fall day wearing skinny jeans, knee high boots, a plaid blanket scarf and this perfect chambray. You can even throw a cable knit sweater on top for extra warmth. While it may be too warm to be dreaming of chunky layers, you’ll also see me wearing this button down with my favorite distressed white flares and a cognac heel – a classic spring/summer go-to.

The chambray I’m wearing (linked above) runs big so be sure to size down. Plus, it’s only $25!! And don’t worry, you won’t die of heat exhaustion because the blouse is fairly thin.

P.S. Don’t miss out on the ultimate spring and summer bags and sandals from last week’s Friday Finds.

Red, White and Blue

By now you know I love these pants! They have become transeasonal for me as we head into spring. I’ve worn them with sweaters and booties as you’ve seen but can’t wait to style them with a lace blouse and sandals. Get this look by clicking the links above! The shoes are only $38!!

This week you can look forward to getting a recap of my Scottsdale trip and more outfits to come!

Thanks for stopping by.

Leaves are finally starting to change in Dallas. At least this tree is right outside my office. It seems Memphis is a little ahead of my Texas home. This weekend I was in TN for a friend’s wedding, and it was a great time with family and friends. I still can’t believe I’m old enough to have friends getting married. Some times I still feel like a high schooler, and then I remind myself I have to pay bills.

Thanks for stopping by, and remember to check out my new “Holiday Shop” on the homepage.
