Since moving into my new (rental, of course) home here in Dallas, I haven’t gotten the chance to show you any snaps around the house. I’ve been traveling so much that I haven’t been home long enough to actually get moved in. I know that sounds crazy, but I’m just really good at putting it off (ha!). I finally got the chance last weekend to straighten up enough to take a few detail shots of my bedroom and the living room.
What do you think? I’m obsessed with my bedding from Crane and Canopy – it’s seriously SO soft and so comfortable ;) The only downside is that it’s harder to get out of bed in the morning!
I’m getting the most out of these somewhat-chilly-but-still-a-little-warm days and wearing my skirts, shorts, and dresses as much as I can. Like I mentioned in yesterday’s (and friday’s!) post, I can’t get enough of this booties-and-bare-legs combo. And as I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, I’m addicted to plaid this season. Seriously though, I feel like I reach for plaid in my closet almost every day! It’s easy, cute and can be ‘styled’ SO many ways – easy to dress up and even easier to dress down too!
I’m headed to Charlotte today to visit my friend Caitlin (SO excited!) for a few days and then we’re both headed to Columbia on Thursday for the private shopping event (get the details here!) over at the new Nordstrom Rack!
Can you ever have too many chunky knit sweaters? I love this one from Nasty Gal (don’t judge the site by it’s name – I’m telling you! It’s good!) because it’s a little cropped. Sometimes I’d rather not have my cozy sweaters both chunky AND Long…what if I want to wear a cute belt or not look so lax?! Either way, I love this one – and the price too!
And I’m so excited! The Kristen wedge booties (probably my favorite DK booties EVARRRR) are finally available at last call! They’re seriously the best – you NEED them in black!! But really though – just trust me on this one ;)
I mentioned on Friday how much I was loving this combo? (the whole bare legs and bootie thing?!) What’re you’re thoughts? Tell me I’m not crazy – YOU would wear (slash kind of like) this combo too….right?! I’m telling you, I think it’s great for this awk transition time of year! And this chunky sweater?! PERFECTION. It would also be super cute with a striped shirt (just bought this one!) peeking out through the sleeves!
One of my favorite looks for this transitional time of year is pairing booties and a skirt, dress or even shorts. I love the unexpected combo of booties and bare legs (ha!). See below for more images/examples of outfits with this combo and outfit inspiration!
As the air gets cooler and we move further and further away from warm temps and summer, all I want to wear is oversized sweaters and skinny jeans (with booties!) During the cooler months it’s literally my go-to look. And this Vince sweater I scored from Nordstrom Rack (for 60% OFF!) is probably one of my favorites for the season. AND it’s super warm….AND long enough to wear with leggings ;)
I’m excited to be heading to Columbia, South Carolina next week for the opening of a new Nordstrom Rack. I’ll be there to co-host a private shopping event with my good friend Caitlin of Southern Curls & Pearls! We’ve been looking forward to hosting the private shop event for months now – and I’m SO excited to be heading over there a few days early to spend some quality time with her (can’t wait!)
The private shopping event takes place on Thursday, October 23 from 4-8pm, one day before the new store opens to the public. For those of you in the Columbia area, let us know if you’ll be able to make it to the event! (The store is located at 278-A Harbison Blvd.)
I would LOVE to meet you and shop with you! If you know you’ll be able to make it, please RSVP here so I’ll know to expect you! Also, one lucky reader will be chosen at random for a one-on-one styling session (so be sure to RSVP so you can be in the running!)
It’s not everyday that you get to “work” (didn’t feel like work though!) with one of your best friends. But with this past weekend being the big Texas-OU game/extravaganza, a bunch of my friends came in town for the game. I’ve loved watching my good friend, John (who left us in Texas and is now living in Chicago) grow as a photographer and have been wanting (slash dying!) to shoot with him for FOREVER. Thank you Texas-OU for bringing John to Dallas ;) I’m so glad we finally got to have our afternoon of fun ;) …and here are the photos to show for it! ;)
PS: Fun fact. Before I was ever even involved in the world of social media…I had wasn’t. Like, didn’t even “get” it to be honest. Confession – I didn’t even have a twitter account. Sophomore year of college (over TX-OU weekend, ironically!), John was actually the one who created my twitter account. (ha!) I just remembered this randomly and though to myself….who woulda thought?!
