Mexico calls for bringing out your brightest pieces! I styled this striped blouse with a white skort and beaded accessories. How fun are these parrot earrings?! I can’t get enough of them and style them every chance I get! I will tone this look down when in Dallas by pairing the blouse and earrings with white straight leg jeans instead.

Y’all have most likely seen this dress before on the blog, but if not, I’ll give you a little background. I worked at Tibi in New York the summer before my senior year of college. Of course, I fell in love with the brand, and my obsession began. I bought this dress that summer, so every time I wear it, I think of that fun experience!

Black and white are a classic combo no matter what age you are! These culottes not so much, but they sure are fun. I got these a couple of summers ago and have worn them a variety of ways. I decided to go with a more fitted look today as I reflected on my wardrobe. I realized that the majority of what I wear and buy is oversized. There’s nothing wrong with that, but I decided I needed to introduce some variety. This tee is super comfy and will go with so much of what I own!

You all know my love and obsession for Tibi. BUT what I love even more: a piece that will transition from one season to the next. I wore this blouse with a suede skirt and under a leather jumper back in the fall and winter. Now the top is making it’s first spring appearance, and you can’t go wrong with an all white look.

Do you have a piece that you break out every season?

Thanks for stopping by!!

This weekend I visited my boyfriend, Henry, in Houston. A half-day at work and a 3.5 hour drive called for something put together yet comfortable. This turned out to be the perfect look, and the jacket was a staple of the weekend.

After I arrived in Houston, Henry and I headed to Alice Blue for dinner in the Heights. Good food and a cozy atmosphere – I definitely recommend. Saturday we rode in the best Soul Cycle class we’d taken and then proceeded to eat a Tiny’s chocolate chip cookie. The cookie negated the workout, but oh well, it was worth it. Saturday night we joined many Houstonians at Lights in the Heights – a stroll through a joyfully decorated neighborhood which included live bands and hot cocoa.

Houston, you’re growing on me.

This weekend was probably the most fun weekend I’ve had since I entered the “real world.” Maybe that’s because my friends and I got to pretend like we were back in college. It was homecoming at SMU, and all my peeps were back in town. We visited some of our favorite spots, saw our Mustangs play and laughed a whole lot. Take me back or at least bring them back!

 

Thanks for reading!
