Duh! I’m a pro in this area if I do say so myself. Below you’ll find ALL the picks from web, current trends, gift guides – and when it comes down to it, ways to make your shopping experience easier (bc it’s overwhelming out there!).

All You Need for a Cozy Friday Night

One more day ’til the weekend, y’all! Friday night has always been one of my favorite times of the week because it means the end of the work week (well, kinda) and the start of the weekend! It’s also one of the hardest nights to get me to do anything other than lay on my couch because I’m just so burnt out by Friday nights. Anyone else?! Duncan and I love to lounge and be lazy on Fridays and it’s also something I’ve always done with my roommates – it’s just the best!

Stuff You Can Actually Wear Right Now

It’s officially fall, but to be honest it doesn’t really feel like it. Even for Dallas I feel like the weather is way behind schedule as far as cooling down goes. Because of the tricky temps lately, I’ve had lots of questions about what I’m actually wearing right now. You guys see me every day on Instagram and I do my best to always share details with y’all but basically I’m living in flowy tops, denim, casual midi dresses and booties and mules. They’re what I’ve dubbed my transitional basics!

Honestly, all of these picks are SO cute and they look way more $$$ than they are right? My favorite kind of buy!

Everything Rust Colored That I’m Loving

Is anyone else totally here for the RUST TREND? Because hi, I’m obsessed! It’s that perfect fall color and I feel like it looks pretty on every skin color, right?

5 Types of Basics You Need for the Transition to Fall

I sound like a broken record when introducing all my fall content lately (are y’all liking all the coverage?!) but basically we’re in that weird transitional time of year. It happens in-between seasons and I notice the trickiest shift between summer and fall and then winter and spring – basically when the style does a 180 but the weather isn’t caught up yet. So this is the time of year…
