booties and a skirt 3

Instagram from earlier this week wearing this outfit (taken with my iphone, of course!)

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?!

Last week I hosted #GirlsNightOut with one of my favorite brands (1.State) and Belk – I announced the event here. Anyway, it was really fun and there was a GREAT turn out. This jacket I have on (Which is actually 40% OFF at Nordstrom right now!) was a HUGE hit. I wore it to the event and I got SO many compliments ;) In fact, I think they sold out of the jacket except for one size! I love how I could wear it to a business meeting (and look professional) but then also sass it up to go out with my friends – a great staple if you ask me ;)

I hope you all had an awesome weekend! The weather was a little strange here in Dallas this weekend – it was freezing (relatively speaking) on Saturday and then super muggy on Sunday.  I did the whole Texas-Ou-and-Tx-State-Fair thing on Saturday (SO much fun!) and then had a relaxing Sunday watching Grey’s (Netflix marathon!) – probably one of my favorite weekends in a while!
