inspiration for fall

People often ask, how do I stay inspired while shopping, two words….Fashion Week. Every fashion week I pay close attention to the shows, looking for common themes, trends and new silhouettes. I pin my favorite looks on pinterest, then refer to those pins when the season is upon us. To say I am looking forward to Fall 2013, is an understatement. The cooler weather and everything that comes along with it cannot get here soon enough. Here are the trends I will be on the lookout for when adding fall pieces to my closet.

friday finds

One thing I love about Texas Style Council is meeting new bloggers and brands that I can support and share.  I discovered the online shop of Moorea Seal and it is an amazing one, filled with uniquely curated pieces at price points for everyone. The three pieces below are all under $30.

smiles all around

My weekend in Austin was such a success. Seeing old friends, making new ones and learning a few things along the way. On Saturday evening we had the opportunity to play with several brands and snap a few fun photos throughout the evening. I love these pics courtesy of Bonlook!

savory summer

How is today August 1? I feel like Memorial day was last week. My summer to-do list is pretty lengthy for the end of summer to be quickly approaching. I still have a few seasonal recipes I must try. I better start now, because with how fast time is flying by Christmas will be here before we know it.

basic but bold

What a week! I could not be more excited that today is Friday. My internet is finally back up and running at home and I am looking forward to a low-key weekend, that may include a little shopping, of course. I have been on the hunt for a few new pieces for my living room and I love these black and white pillows from Ikea. A great basic, yet makes a bold statement. How fun are these other black and white items for the home?!

My most recent purchase was a precious drop waist dress, after wearing it, I’m confident I need to add a few more to my wardrobe. So easy to wear and very versatile for any occasion. Not to mention perfect for this summer heat.  Shop the look, all from ASOS, in a variety of price ranges.
