Hey there! I am so excited to partner with OTBT Shoes to show you how to style the Fernweh Mid-Shaft Booties for fall!  In trying to think outside the box, I decided to take a two-piece set, which is a fun trend this fall, and pair it with these casual slouchy booties. Even though the two-piece sets are trendy items, this one is neutral and versatile enough to incorporate well with your current wardrobe. I wore this outfit during my travels to Waco, TX. My husband and I went to the Magnolia Table restaurant on our 15 year anniverary! YAY to us!  My main goal while traveling is to be comfortable but still maintain a fahionable look.  The Fernweh allowed me to do this with…

Hello there friends! I am so sorry I have been MIA for a month! Life has been a little hectic around these parts!  I have been working on something that I have wanted to do for a couple of years now and I am finally doing it! You will find out what it is in a few weeks and I am beyond excited to share!! I was also out for a week because I was chosen for a sequestered jury on a criminal case.  Let’s just say that was the most interesting thing I have ever experienced in my life.  I am really glad to be catching up and feeling normal. So enough about me!  I want to tell you about an awesome shoe brand…

Hey there! I just have to show you guys all the outfits I created with this awesome leopard slip dress.  I purchased this at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and it is my favorite item from the sale right now! I think this is something that any woman could wear and in any season.  If you are not into the leopard print it was also available in a floral. I think you could also find a slip dress that is a solid color and it would be just as cute and versatile. I hope this Flat Lay to Life-Styled: Leopard Slip Dress post will give you some inspiration on how to put some outfits together with any midi dress like this one. One of the biggest…

Hey ladies! With the big Nordstrom Anniversary Sale happening this week I really wanted to give you some of the trends you will see this fall season.  You will see most of these styles at the Nordy Sale and I thought it would be important to bring them to your attention.  I feel like most of these trends will mix nicely with some of the current things in our closet.  I actually love most of the trends for this fall season and can’t wait to shop! I know the sale is really good for those basic things that you can get at a great price. I also feel that there are some great deals on the trendy items for the season that will stick around…

Hey there! Happy July! It is THAT time of year again! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is coming up! I am so glad I have something to look forward to in July.  Having an extensive retail background, July was always a dreadful month for me.  It was a time that everything for spring and summer was on sale and fall inventory was coming in.  The problem was and is that no one wants fall items because it’s 100 plus degrees outside!  I should also mention that sale time in July brings a totally different customer than you are use to the rest of the year.  All this made me look forward to July being over. Now it is a different story.  From a retail business…

Hey there! Have you ever shopped for something for so long and just when you are about to give up you find it? Your aggravation turned into excitement instantly!  That was me with trying to find a maxi dress that fit into my casual lifestyle.  I wanted a maxi dress that was cotton, casual, comfortable and had a really cute fit.  I should also mention that my hunt lasted a year!  I found a dress last year at J Crew that I wanted so badly and it sold out before I ever saw it.  Lo and behold the same dress came back in stock this year and was 40% off! I immediately purchased it online and it was soooo perfect! I recently took a trip…

Hey ladies! I hope you are getting as excited as I am for spring to get here! I don’t get as excited about spring clothing as I do for the fall season but I certainly am ready for warmer weather and sandals! I want to help you find the essentials you will need for a great spring wardrobe. These essentials are just basics that are the “canvas” for your wardrobe. Think of it like a painting.  You start with a canvas and build on it to make your picture from there.  You can not build the picture without the canvas.  Similarly you can not build a functional wardrobe without the basic “canvas” pieces. For your essentials I am going to give you suggestions to create…
