Fall & Winter

When the leaves start changing colors and Starbuck’s brings back Pumpkin Spice Lattes, it’s time to bust out the boots, scarves and sweaters!  Layered looks are always more interesting and we sing praises if we actually get to wear our faux-leather jackets here in Houston! I’m sharing my favorite outfits for your Fall & Winter wardrobe here!

Style A Friend | How To Wear A TShirt Dress in the Fall

How’s your week going friends?  I’m all out of whack because I just got back in town, so it feels like today is a Monday!  But it’s actually Wednesday, so maybe that’s a good thing?!

I was commenting to my friends how I’m such a bad traveler because I can’t stand to have my things being all unorganized (which always happens no matter how hard I try to keep it all together) when I’m away.  I even lost my socks (really??) and a pair of sunglasses while I was gone this time.  How did I lose socks??  Needless to say,

7 Summer to Fall Outfits from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Happy Friday friends!! We made it to the end of the week!  That alone is worth celebrating! We have a fun weekend ahead celebrating our 2 year-old nephew’s birthday.  We’re squeezing every last drop of Summer break before school starts in just 2 weeks! I really can’t believe it’s coming to an end though.  We have loved having James home all day.  Did you see his reading recommendations?!

I loved hearing your feedback on bringing Ali-Shaun back for a trip to the dressing room last week.  It was my hope that seeing clothes on both of us would be helpful for envisioning those pieces on yourself and you definitely said it was.

Dressy Jumpsuits To Wear From Summer To Fall

Good Monday morning friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are starting the day feeling refreshed and energized!  With nothing on the agenda, we had such a good, slow weekend.  I made a conscious effort to rest and recharge and am so glad I did. Last week, I had a stomach bug but powered through because there was so much to do.  On top of that, I haven’t been exercising regularly, so I was feeling really crummy and low-energy.

We started the weekend with a fun trip to a local farmers market.  If you’re in Houston,

Again, I have to open this blog post with a heartfelt THANK YOU for the birthday wishes!  It never ceases to amaze me how thoughtful you are to take time out of your day to send me a sweet message, so I want to let you know that I genuinely appreciate it!

My friends took me out for a patio birthday dinner (with drinks!) and that girl time is so crucial for our well being!  I’m truly blessed to have such a great group of friends to enjoy, encourage, and laugh ’til it hurts with!

Good morning friends! Well, more like mid-morning! I’m a little late getting today’s post out because I took some time off to celebrate our sweet Jordan’s 2nd birthday!! We had a Paw Patrol party at the house and she absolutely loved it!  I swear she seems older than 2 already because she’s learning so much and talking so well!  We just love her to pieces and are so glad she’s part of our family! I’ll do a full recap later this week after I import all the pics!

This post is a quickie to let you know about the awesome President’s Day sales happening today AND the giant Nordstrom Winter Sale!

2 Winter Skirts

2 Winter Skirts

Hi guys! I’m super excited about a few new things that just arrived, especially because they are a change from my everyday jeans!

I’m lucky to live in a place with weather that allows for things like winter skirts on some days- particularly days like yesterday where it went from 55-66 degrees ! I’ve got two winning skirts to share with you today that I’m crazy for! Both are great quality and can easily be dressed up or down!

PLAID SKIRT & BLACK TUNIC SWEATER

First up is this adorable plaid skirt that I styled for work and a fun night out on the town.

Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale & Favorite Outfits of 2017

Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale & Favorite Outfits of 2017

Eat, cozy, clean and organize!  That pretty much sums up yesterday! We spent the better part of the day in pajamas, then got motivated to start cleaning up the gigantic mess left by a good Christmas and even organized the playroom, James’ room, AND the toys in the living room!  I guess it’s the big annual clean-up, because we did the same thing last year, but on that day last year, we took down the Christmas decor too.  I think we’ll get around part to that next weekend! I’m not ready to let it go yet- plus, I don’t have the energy yet to take everything down!

How was your weekend friends? I’m happy to say I wrapped up MOST of my Christmas shopping and it’s a good thing because Christmas is in ONE week!!!  Ahhhhh!!!  It never feels like enough time before the holiday, but I’m so excited because James gets out of school for holiday break on Friday!  He’ll be home until January 9!  That’s a nice, long break!  Do you have a similar break from school?

My 6 Must-Have Fall/Winter Shoes

My 6 Must-Have Fall/Winter Shoes

Yesterday I shared my 10 must-have jewelry items and today it’s all about the shoes!  I definitely have boots and booties on repeat during the Fall and Winter, but I’m also a huge fan of my slip on sneakers and leopard pumps!  What are your favorite shoes right now?

Tall Boots

Tall boots are perfect with not only jeans, but also leggings and dresses! I really lucked out on this pair, because often I have to try on at least 5 or more to get the fit, color, and style right. This pair of tall boots are sooooo pretty in person.

How’s your week going friends?  Yesterday was busy busy getting lots of pictures taken of our holiday decor that I’ll be sharing with you on Monday! #yayforthat!  But then, I had to pick up James from school early because he was sick.  I hate getting that call, but thankfully, once he got home, he felt much better.  Later, we lost power and internet #thehorror! in the evening!  Ug!  I almost didn’t get this post finished for today, but I’m glad it worked out!

This month, Nordstrom reached out and asked me to talk about my favorite accessories and fall/winter shoes

Hi friends! Are you having a good week?  I hope so!  Having a big chunk of Christmas shopping done has me feeling good! Because I’m OCD, I’ve been tracking everything on Evernote so I know who I have gifts for, what I’ve spent, etc.!  I usually just keep written notes and store them in a file folder, but having access to it on all my devices anytime is a lifesaver! In the new year, I have more organization content for you and I’ll do a post about Evernote since I know a lot of you had questions about how to use it!

Did you do your fair share of supporting the economy yesterday??  I can definitely say that I sure did! And I made a big dent in our toy list and picked up a few things for friends. I remember as a kid my Grandma handing me the toy catalog and having me cut out the pictures of the toys I wanted to ask Santa for.  I’d put all the pictures in an envelope and give it to Santa when we would go visit him at the mall.  I had James circle things he wanted from the Target catalog and he not only circled and starred the iPhone and Apple watch!

The Best Things on Black Friday Sale!

The Best Things on Black Friday Sale!

Hi friends! Are you feeling loved and full?! I hope so! I’m back home from a really nice time at my sis-n-law’s house for Thanksgiving.  She’s a great cook, so she did all the heavy lifting and served us a very tasty Thanksgiving dinner, complete with smoked turkey, cornbread dressing, green beans, and cranberry sauce.  And the desserts were awesome- chocolate pie with homemade whip cream, pumpkin cheesecake, and pecan pie!  You know it’s a good one where everyone naps afterward!  Jordan hasn’t been feeling well since yesterday, and she went right down in the pack-n-play for a long nap!

Good morning friends! Hope you are having a wonderful week and in full-on Thanksgiving mode! This is the time of year I feel all sentimental and sappy and so extra thankful for all the blessings in my life- including you! If I haven’t told you lately, I really appreciate you taking time out of your day to join me here!  It means so much!

Are you guys on Thanksgiving break yet? We’re really getting into that mode over here and were blessed with some perfect weather for taking the kids to the zoo yesterday!  It was Jordan’s first time and she really loved the monkeys!
