I must confess that hot pink and lime green was my favorite color combo circa 4th grade. Can anyone else relate? My cousins had a hot pink and lime green bedroom, and I could not have been more jealous!! Think green and pink polka dot walls and coordinating bedding. My braces even had pink and green rubber bands – btw, not a good look.
Have you ever heard what goes around comes back around? Well, here we are. I’m wearing my middle school self’s favorite color combo and loving it. I often think cords are going to be stiff, but these have great stretch. I recommend buying your true jean size because they will give. Don’t miss out on adding these to your fall wardrobe!
Thanks for stopping by!!

Speaking of furry friends, my fam spontaneously adopted a sweet little pup, Ellie, about a week ago, and I’ve been taking care of her here in Dallas. My oh my, she was a lot of work, very cute, had sweet puppy breath, but a lot of work.
I get to resume my normal routine, including blogging, as of today because my parents took her Tennessee. Ellie gets to live with her big brother Winston, chew on lots of toys and run around our backyard. I don’t think she’s going to miss my apartment bathroom, but I hope she misses me.
I am loving cropped flares right now! All colors and textures… I just can’t get enough. I scored a couple of pairs on Nordstrom Rack last week and want to share a few more of my favorites with you!
You can dress them down with a sneaker and jean jacket or up with a silk blouse and strappy heel. Pick your poison and happy shopping!

I’m obsessed with this dress, a NYC purchase! My mother and I visited the Nordstrom Rack at Union Square, which I learned last summer is a jackpot. This dress is by Frame which retailed for a couple hundred dollars, yet we got it for a fraction of that cost! I love the lace up detail, the midi length and its breathability. This is a great transition piece into fall. If you happen to stumble into the Nordstrom Rack at Union Square, know you will need a couple of hours and some patience to dig.
I have chosen my top 10 favorite sandals for spring and summer varying in price. Order them now so you can have them in time for spring break! ShopBop is having a “Buy More, Save More” sale and most of these sandals you can find on their website. Get to shopping!

I love adding a vest to almost every outfit. You can probably tell from my posts that vests occur in about every other one. I feel like a vest can pull together any outfit or dress down a dress. I styled it with a simple tee and distressed denim to make the outfit a little more special. Try adding a vest or two to your wardrobe, and you just might agree.

Eileen and I wandered around Deep Ellum, an area I haven’t spent much time in the last three years. It’s full of restored buildings, street art and live music. Great restaurants are also scattered throughout including a new favorite of mine, Filament.The chef’s grits are amazing!!
