Hi friends! How’s your week going? We’re just a hop, skip and a jump away from the weekend and I’m not mad about it! We went from sweltering hot to downright cold overnight, and now it looks like we’re in for a lot of rain. I know the weather has been particularly hard on so many lately with devastating effects. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone and especially those close to home in central Texas who have been affected by terrible floods. It’s hard to watch people suffer in any part of the world, so we are donating to charities we trust so people can get help with recovering as quickly as possible.View Post
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!
Woo hoo! We made it to the weekend friends! I’m back from a quick trip to LA to shoot the Gibson X Glam collection and I’m thrilled that you are as excited about it as I am! It’s hard to not get to show you everything already, but I know you are gonna love it and look absolutely fabulous in it! The pieces are soooo good and can be styled so many ways. Mark your calendar for November 12, the date the collection launches at Nordstrom!
This week ended the 2nd HWH Fitness Challenge.View Post
Hi friends! It’s a super exciting day over here and I couldn’t wait to share more of this with you! There’s been a few sneak peeks on Stories and a mention on my blog, but today, I finally get to officially announce that I’m partnering with 8 wonderful bloggers and Gibson Look to launch a special holiday collection at Nordstrom!
As I type this sentence I can hardly believe it’s true!
I’m both humbled and amazed to be part of such an exciting collaboration. When I started blogging 8 years ago,View Post
Good morning friends! I know how much y’all appreciate the posts where I show you how to take one item in your closet and style it several different ways. So today, I’m partnering with one of my favorite retailers and somewhere you know I shop often – LOFT! I think we all know and love LOFT because their styles are constantly being updated and they have great sales!
Another great thing about LOFT is that they make mixing and matching styles super easy because their collections are usually designed to be worn interchangeably.
I’m also super excited about the hero piece today,View Post
Good morning! How’s your week going? I’ve been quite literally buried under mounds of clothes preparing for tonight’s Project One Way at Sugar Land Town Square! It’s a one woman fashion show where I layer on all the clothes and then shed them artfully to show off the new Fall fashions and trends. I’ve been rehearsing up a storm and can’t wait for the show! If you are in the Houston/Sugar Land area, I’d love to see you there. It’s gonna be so fun and they moved the event inside since our weather is looking to be a little rainy.View Post
Hello friends! How is your week going? I’m feeling so good about my new schedule and we now have James, our 3rd grader on a good after-school schedule too! Can you tell I’m a bit OCD with my calendaring?! #sorrynotsorry;)
We have our first baseball practice tonight, so we’ll see if I can fit in my exercise as planned and maybe meet a few mamas who want to do it with me.View Post
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,View Post
Happy Wednesday friends! We’re midway through the week and sliding toward the weekend! That’s a good feeling, right?! Can anyone else believe we’re already to August?! This outfit inspiration post is hopefully a fun and useful one for you! I wanted to share 3 different ways to style each piece for some Nordstrom Anniversary Sale fall outfit ideas. I know y’all have been shopping the sale so I’m partnering with Nordstrom today to share 39 different ways to style the things you scored over the past few weeks!
We all want to make the most of our wardrobe,View Post
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.View Post
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,View Post
Good morning friends! You might have heard the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to everyone tomorrow!! Get ready!! Today, I’ve got your ultimate Nordstrom Anniversary Sale shoe guide to the best boots, booties and sneakers in the sale! I wanted this post to be extra helpful for you when narrowing down your shoe choices, so I provided details and fit tips along with a styling option for each so you could see how the shoes look on.
If you want a new pair of boots this year, but are only getting one pair, I’d recommend a taupe bootie.View Post
Woo hoo, it’s like Superbowl Eve of shopping over here! Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts tomorrow! I wanted to share some pro shopping tips and my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale favorites from Early Access.
I don’t know how, but I was extra lucky to get a special sneak preview of all the Anniversary Sale items yesterday at Nordstrom! I didn’t know what to expect, but I was happily surprised at what I found. I think you will be too! I’ll be heading back to Nordstrom this morning with our favorite girlfriend, Ali-Shaun,View Post
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!
And Ali-Shaun brought mini cupcakes!View Post
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!View Post
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.View Post
We’re heading into the first weekend of 2018! I’m feeling pretty good about the start to the new year, how about you? If you need a little nudge into the new year check out my 30 Healthy Habits and a fresh way to start your day. I just started doing this in December and I’m hooked on it!
Today’s post took forever to put together, so I hope you like it! I rounded up over 30 winter outfits to inspire your cold weather wardrobe! But, instead of just linking everything, I took the time to call out my special pieces that I recommend with fit and style tips.View Post
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!View Post
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?
Have you heard of Jen7 brand jeans?View Post
