short story

With the days getting warmer and the sunshine lasting longer, I see myself getting lots of weekend wear out of colorful patterned shorts. I know I will be wearing a few styles below, paired with a basic t and flat sandals!

peacock plume

I discovered peacock plume while attending Texas Style Council in Austin, and I absolutely fell in love! With one necklace in particular, and now I can’t get enough of what their site has to offer. The prices are amazing, I can honestly say you get more bang for the buck! How fabulous is the necklace I picked up? You would never guess it’s only $35!

*more to come on my above outfit later in the week

weekend bliss

This weekend was a cause for celebration! My first crawfish of the season, my first Saturday with no plans {spent by the pool} and gathering friends and family to celebrate my sister’s wedding with just the perfect shower. I can’t believe it went by so quickly! Here is a glimpse…

friday finds {purchased}

For some reason, this week has been a tough one. Lack of motivation, so many upcoming plans, personal and professional to-do list that seem to be never ending, and the pure exhaustion of being non-stop busy over the past month. I cannot even begin to explain how excited I am to finally sleep in on Saturday and do whatever I want with my entire day! Last night I needed a little retail therapy and happened to make out great at Forever21. Just a glimpse at a few items I came home with.

their way & the save way

The maxi dresses that live in my closet have seen better days. Mainly in part because I live in them during the summer. Not to mention they are easy to wear and so quick to throw on.  I am currently on the hunt for a few versatile replacements and I love the stripes on the one below. And,  just so happens I found a more affordable version too!

{Rachel Pally $238}

{Hive & Honey $69}

chambray & stripes

I had some time to snap a few outfit photos while in Austin last weekend and had to share. I absolutely LOVE this skirt, and you would never guess it’s from JCPenney! If you get a chance swing by and check out the MNG by Mango collection, I love it! And,  as most of you know by now,  one of my new years resolutions is to mix more patterns,  hence the leopard and stripe combination.

can never have enough….

I tend to always throw a scarf around my neck when I am running out the door. My go-to outfit, especially when I am in a rush, consist of jeans, basic tops and colorful scarves. I recently wore a zebra scarf {I wrote about here} and received so many compliments, I had to write about happy scarf again! I absolutely love the unique variety and of course the prices! Check out the great new styles, and all for $24, and FREE shipping too!

friday finds {re-visited}

There is nothing like good ol fashion lip color. I have forever been collecting lipsticks and pulled a few out recently. I have re-introduced colored lips back into my everyday routine. Here are some oldies but goodies. However I have immediate plans to add to my collection. And by immediate, I mean this afternoon!
