Best of 2016

2016 was a great year filled with great outfits, so I decided to share a few of my favorites.

one: This outfit made the list for many reasons. First of all, this pair of Zara denim has become a favorite of mine. I can’t help but wear them all the time because they are just so comfortable. The Dolce Vita sandals have also been a staple of my spring and summer wardrobe for the last 3 years.

two: Let me tell you… If I could fill my wardrobe with dozens of Self Portrait dresses, I would, but unfortunately, I don’t have the budget for that. Each dress is incredibly unique and incorporates a variety of textures. I’m obsessed.

three: After a summer filled with all things Tibi, I couldn’t help but love the line. I also love the matching set trend and the opportunity to create new looks.

four: I love the overalls just as much as the day I shared them with you. This post also includes one of my favorite blouses and my go-to velvet sandals.

five: Well, y’all have heard me rant about my Old Navy vest enough that you probably think I wear it everyday. It seems I do, just about. It just goes with everything and can make a plain outfit a little less simple.

I can’t wait to see what 2017 holds!

Oh to be a Child

Who knew overalls would come back in style? My mom isn’t so sure that they have, but I like them anyway, oops. I’ve worn them a few different ways: with a t-shirt and sneakers, a button down silk blouse and heeled sandals (shown here), and in the winter I hope to wear a warm sweater and booties. The overalls are versatile – I can wear them every season, no matter the temperature, AND they make you feel like a child again! They will keep me warm in the winter as jeans do but can be worn on a summer night, too. Sorry mom :))

Summer to Fall

I have gotten a lot of wear out of this Zara (imagine that) blouse since I bought it mid July. It was light enough for hot days in New York but works as a transitional piece into fall. Of course, fall comes a little later around here since it is currently 85 degrees and not a tree has changed. I wore this with shorts and wedges this summer, white jeans, and now dark distressed denim and velvet sandals. It’s now off to the dry cleaners after a few wears and minor spillage. Come back to me soon!

Another NYC Purchase

I was hesitant to purchase this dress in New York this summer because I wasn’t sure if it looked poorly made or if I would even wear it. It’s not a dress that I can wear to class, and sadly, it’s not blue or red for SMU’s boulevard season. To my surprise and delight, I have worn it many times sense being back at school, and I’m happy with the quality! The cut is extremely flattering on all body types, too. I love all of the feminine details: pom-poms, crochet cutouts and a low back.

Self Portrait

I love the unique dresses that Self Portrait makes, each incorporating many textures and fabrics. His dresses are unlike any other line which makes me love them even more. This dress originally had cap sleeves, but I decided to cut them off and add the lace detail to allow more movement. I also added a slit in the skirt. I can’t wait to wear this dress again, and I’m hoping another Self Portrait purchase is in my future.

Well it’s been awhile since I’ve had time to devote to the blog. Luckily I have some awesome friends that don’t mind helping a sister take a few pictures. We are in LA this week, and we couldn’t be happier. The weather has been beautiful, but the wind is a little stronger than our liking. If only we could stay here for another week – there are hundreds of restaurants and beaches we have yet to try.

A Classic Combo

Black and white is definitely a common combination in my wardrobe and probably yours, too. This is a new take on a classic. I’m wearing a midi fringed skirt that looks more like a typical spring and summer skirt, but paired with a darker top and heat like we’ve had, you can pull it off. The top and skirt can both be purchased from Luxury Garage Sale, but above are a few other options.
