Like I’ve said before, this light blue leather jacket has quickly become one of my favorite pieces! Not only is it the perfect weight for Dallas fall weather, the color surprisingly goes with everything, and I usually just treat it as a neutral. I love the contrast here against the burnt orange cords and the coordinating cool tones when styled with this dress and this skirt.

Trying styling unexpected colors and textures this week, and see what works! You might be surprised!

Meet the hottest new accessory – the hair tie!! Of course I’m kidding, but I can’t seem to go anywhere without one. The ability to throw may hair up into a ponytail at a moment’s notice is absolutely necessary whether I’m trying to focus at work, keep my hair out of my eyes or work out. Naturally you see a ponytail holder in many of my photos because I forget it’s there. This is the cheapest accessory on the market 🙂

Happy Wednesday, and thank you for checking out today’s look!

Wearing summer tops in the fall

Who watched the SMU game this weekend?! Oh my mercy! That was scary but so proud of our boys! The team deserves a much needed week off. I started the game in the stadium and finished it eating ice cream in a bar with my friends as we cheered them on in overtime! If you haven’t been to a game yet this year, you must! You won’t regret it.

I am transitioning my summer tops with darker jeans and a bootie or fall sneaker. This is how I create more mileage in my wardrobe, and you can too! I love when friends send me photos of their outfits when they need guidance, so feel free to do the same!

Happy Monday, and thanks for stopping by!

xo, MS

Camo Pants

Happy Humpday!!! You’ll notice a lot of what I’m wearing here are pieces that you’ve seen before just styled a different way! I feel like versatility is key for this time in my life because I don’t have tons of money to spend on new clothes every month. I have a lot of fun reworking the pieces in my closet, and I hope to inspire you to create new looks with what you already have. Sprinkling in a new piece can go a long way when you’re smart about what you buy.

I purchased these camo pants during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this summer, and lucky for you, they are on sale again! Camo is trending this fall, so why not let this be the piece you add to your closet. You’ll be surprised by how much goes with them – especially items you already have!! Think white eyelet tops (shown above) and blue striped shirts while temps are still high, and don’t be afraid to pattern mix. Once the cooler weather hits, style these pants with a chambray, cozy sweaters in almost ANY solid color, and leather moto jackets. I can’t wait to see how you style these bad boys!!

Camo + Stripes

Typically, I would style this type of skirt with something a little more predictable… Most likely a white ruffled blouse or a crisp white button down. Yesterday, I decided to switch things up and do a little pattern mixing. Because I don’t have an endless budget for clothes and shoes, I get creative with what I have! Make something old feel new! Honestly, I have a lot of fun doing this, and I suppose it makes sense why I’m in the job I’m in. I challenge you to look at the clothes in your closet and create new outfits from items you already have. Feel free to reach out if you need help styling!!

Happy Monday! This weekend I spent some time at home with my fam and pups! I just love the squeals and licks I get from those two. They make coming home so fun. Of course, my parents do too!

Are you familiar with Gal Meets Glam dresses? GMG is a line designed by the influencer, Julia Engel. She makes the most feminine dresses perfect for showers, brunches and church. I’ve linked some of my favorites below!

The Camo Puffer Vest

This camo vest was a staple for me this fall and winter. I love that it covers my bum and adds a little something to an all black work out look. Here I styled it with a basic white tee and distressed jeans as we head into spring. An otherwise simple look was completed with this third piece. I think I’ll pair it back to white jeans and a button down too.

I try to style my outfits based on the rule of thirds. Top off any look with a scarf, statement earring or some sort of outerwear to pull together an outfit. Check out these blog posts where I used the rule of thirds: 1, 2, 3, 4!

Thanks for stopping by!!

The Teddy Bear Coat

I bought this coat about a month ago in Chicago when I didn’t have anything warm enough for the 8 degree weather. Now it’s become useful in Dallas with these chilly temps! This is one of the coziest pieces I own, and now you can get it on sale when you click the link above! As spring inventory arrives in stores and online, you’ll be able to find more and more coats on sale. Now is the time to buy!

Friday Finds: Golden Goose

“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!
