Coat: Trina Turk Wool Wrap Coat (this particular one is sold out BUT here’s a similar one and see all wool coats here!) // Jeans: Genetic Denim // Shoes: Dee Keller – available in leather and suede

Yep, that’s right. I’m bundled up in the BEST deal I somehow managed to find over at NordstromRack last week. I know, I know. It’s one of those treasures that’s almost TOO good to share, especially considering the fact that this exact coat is actually available right now for FULL retail at $545. Don’t hate me, but guess how much I got it for? …$199 (eeek! I know!) I almost didn’t believe my eyes ;) And the funny thing is, I actually started admiring this coat last season when I saw it on someone in NYC…and mustered up the courage to ask her who made it. Anyway, you can imagine my excitement when I snatched it on Mah-hayyy-ger sale!

I love the feminine cut of this coat and am crazy about the oversized lapel (aka the big collar); it’s so ‘Olivia Pope’ and, like her, communicates such class and sophistication. And the length of this coat makes it just long enough to keep warm, but short enough not overwhelm (slash completely eliminate) the outfit. Wrap coats are ideal for this time of year because they’re easy to layer underneath and are perfect for bundling up tight to fight the cold temps – all the while looking chic as ever ;) For those of you looking to get started on your holiday shopping, I think a pretty coat would make a lovely gift ;)

PS: speaking of great deals, there are a lot of good sweaters up to 60% off I saw!

Thank you to NordstromRack for sponsoring this post. As always, ALL opinions and thoughts are my own.

Good morning!

So I’ve been sitting on these photos for a few weeks now….(oops! hence the long hair!) because I was trying to figure out the best time or “way” to include them in a post. I’ve been a HUGE fan of eberjey ever since I discovered them while in College – remember this post (wearing the sleep shirt) I did back in my Nola home?

Eberjey lace accent romper c/o – also comes in this print // Eberjey shorts PJ set (I added monogram myself!)

I figured that with the holidays coming and all the gift guides I’ve been doing, it would be fun to do a post dedicated to PJs because they really do make such a PERFECT gift. I’m obsessed (even that’s an understatement) with their classic ‘gisele’ PJ’s set and literally LIVE in them – especially during the cooler months!

If you’re looking for something special (and that she’ll actually use!), I recommend getting her something comfy and cute to sleep in ;) I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites in the collage below (click on the product to shop!)

and if you’re wondering about anything else in the post, I’ve created a little collage below (of course, you can click the products as per usual to shop!) for those of you curious about the additional items in the post!

But really though – how on EARTH is it already 2/3 of the way through November?! I mean….WHAT?! And Thanksgiving is next week?! Anyway, enough about how fast time flies. I found this sweater on the bottom shelf at GAP last week and it was only $24! #winning – I love the color and how it’s loose-fitting (oh, and it’s SUPER soft too!)

And clearly I’ve got a little infatuation with grey these days….considering yesterday’s post (I’m just realizing the grey motif here).  I guess you could say it’s an easy color to mix and match with :) It’s an unexpected neutral for sure.

Wish I could write more, but I’ve got lots of work to do for the FULL/DAY-time job (although this blog could very well be a full time job too – sheesh!) – so I’ve got to peace out! Hope you have a jolly Thursday!

…and then there was that time I decided I loved grey and navy together ;) And yes, I’m wearing plaid on plaid and I kind of like it. I was searching my closet for a grey and white striped long sleeve tee (I seem to have lost), but couldn’t find it and ended up wearing this plaid shirt. I still think a striped tee (love print mixing!) would be cute, but I don’t hate this little combo either. What do you think?

This is a first for me – wearing denim on denim. I never really saw myself trying this “trend” but I found myself in an “outfit situation” (ha!) where I loved the chambray-and-stripes-and-red-vest-combo but wasn’t sure what to wear on bottom. And given that I was traveling at the time (and thus living out of a suitcase), the options were pretty limited. But after trying the look with the jeans, I have to say…I didn’t hate it! So here I am, joining the denim on denim party :)

I’ve been waiting for SO long (okay…it’s only been like 2-3 weeks) to tell you all about this exciting partnership I’ve been working on with Kate Spade. I shared a few sneak peeks over the past month and those only got me even MORE excited about sharing the full post.

If you’ve ever been to a Kate Spade retail store, then you know that the decor and actual store itself is JUST as cute as all the merchandise within it.  Besides the adorable wall paper and fabulous furniture (and okay…seriously everything in there), my favorite part is the fabulous prints that decorate the walls and display shelves. And there’s always a super cute and quirky collection of prints, arranged together creating an on-trend, bright and cheerful gallery wall.

….And speaking of, do you recognize any of these prints?!



I’ve been obsessed with these Kate Spade gallery walls (the ones in the brick and mortar stores) for years now. They’re kind of famous – just google it.

But the prints have never been for sale….until NOW! As a thank you to their facebook fans, the Kate Spade team is now offering their prints for sale as a Facebook Exclusive. They asked me to help launch the collection and “style” them in my new Dallas home. Of course I said yes (!) and couldn’t be more excited :)

Places to Go Print // Exclamation Point Print // Great Gatsby Print // Bouquet of Peonies Print // Home Sweet Home Print (not pictured)







What do you think?! My favorites are the exclamation point and the peonies print! But they’re all pretty awesome if you ask me ;)

Oh and please excuse the overload of photos – I just couldn’t narrow them down! (sorry!)
