I’m so excited to be featured in Focus Magazine, an LA based magazine, wearing this outfit and talking about the “Denim Skirt”:
DENIM SKIRT: One of the hottest trends of the moment. We’ve seen many denim silhouettes from bell bottoms, to skinny jeans, to boyfriend jeans, but one of the coolest ways to wear denim now is the jean pencil skirt. The versatility is so widespread, it can easily be dressed up by pairing it with a pair of ankle strap heels and a printed clutch or dressed down by wearing a simple white tee and flat sandals.
The denim skirt I am wearing is by one of my favorite denim designers Current/Elliott. It’s available here and here as well. It runs true to size, so whatever size you normally wear in jeans order that same size. I am wearing a size 26.
Thank you so much for reading my blog!! Have a fantastic day!! XOXO!!
The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is by far my most favorite sale of the year! These items above are my top picks from the anniversary sale that would fit well into any wardrobe. What is the one question you should always ask yourself before you buyanything? Is this item versatile? Why? Because in the fashion world VERSATILITY EQUALS VALUE. Meaning, are you going to be able to pair this item with multiple pieces from your closet to create multiple looks. If the answer is NO, then DO NOT PURCHASE THE ITEM. It’s that simple. So, all of these items I have chosen below are versatile and can be mixed and matched with multiple things in this post. Happy Shopping!!
The Moto Jacket – By far my favorite trend of the season, the rebel chic look. All of these jackets can be paired over a sheath dress, maxi dress, with the skinny jean or your favorite boyfriend jean. If you only add one thing to your wardrobe this season, let it be a moto jacket.
The Sheath Dress – my 2nd favorite trend of the season, this dress hits roughly 1-3 inches below the knee, it is form fitting to flatter your figure and can be worn to many different events. Pair it with a moto jacket and an ankle boot for the perfect rebel chic look or for a more traditional look pair it with a simple black heel and an over-sized clutch.
The Silk Top – I love silk tops because they can easily be dressed up or down. Pair these with a high-waisted pencil skirt and an ankle strap heel for a dressy look or with a skinny jean and a moto jacket for a more casual and chic ensemble.
The Ankle Bootie – The cool girl’s answer to wearing a high heel. When opting for an ankle boot instead of the traditional heel your are adding a bit of edge and rebel chicness to your look which I am a big fan of and that look is very on trend this fall!
The Over-Sized Clutch – I especially love this particular clutch because of it’s versatility – you could literally pair this with almost anything from a pair of jeans and a moto jacket, to a chic sheath dress. I love both colors, choose the one that best fits in with your wardrobe.
The Perfect High-Heel – when you are sick of wearing your ankle booties and you are feeling a bit more feminine these 2 pairs of heels are so versatile and chic! I purchased the tan and black one’s that you probably saw in my last post – I have worn them so much since I got them! I wore them with jeans and a tank, paired them with a black jumpsuit and even wore them with cut-offs and a black moto jacket the other day. A must have for fall for sure!
The Skinny Jean – Yes, the skinny will still be in this fall for sure. I love wearing skinny jeans, whether they are a solid wash or distressed – both are versatile and can create so many different looks depending on what your pair them with. My favorite thing to pair them with now is a simple silk tank, a moto jacket and a killer heel and over-sized clutch – all of which you can purchase from this post! Here are some of my top picks:
Have a great week and thanks so much for reading my blog!! XOXO!!
Remember you can also click my “Shop” tab at the top of my blog to shop my favorite picks and see them all together. I am always adding new and fun pieces to this tab.
NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE is one of the biggest sales of the year and by far my most favorite! Here is why- the things that are on sale aren’t the old season items that didn’t sell well, they are the new, never been seen yet, fall clothing!! If you have a Nordstrom card then you can get early access to these items which began last week on July 10th. I previewed all of the things last week at the Nordstrom Galleria and I have included my favorite picks that would be perfect for any fall wardrobe in my “Shop the Post” Below. One of my favorite finds are the Joie ankle strap heels I have on in this post. I love the two tone neutral and black suede – these will go with so much and they are super comfortable – the heel height is only 3 1/2 inches. I wore them all day running errands and my feet never got sore – a must have for sure!! There are many other items that I love, see below:
I am so excited to tell all of you about this fabulous collaboration I am doing with 3 other AMAZNG DALLAS BLOGGERS: Style of Sam, The Middle Page, and SideSmile Style! We are each going to style the same item once a month 4 different ways depending on all of our ages. Here is the break down:
We chose the jumpsuit this month because it’s so on trend right now. They are extremely easy to style and the ways to style them are endless. The way you accessorize them will determine the look you are going for. I paired mine with high ankle strap heels, leopard clutch, red lipstick and gold jewelry – perfect for a date night look. I love the deep v neck and no back detailing on my jumpsuit, sexy yet sophisticated – I purchased it from IntermixAND IT’S ON SALE NOW. Cathy paired hers with a denim vest and wedges for a more casual chic look which I love. Sam accessorized hers with a printed jacket and pink pumps – fun look for a girls night out. Finally, Ashley’s printed jumpsuit is very on trend – prints are so big right now and I love the cut – very flattering with the spaghetti straps and tie at the waist. Whatever your preference, a jumpsuit is definitely a wardrobe “must have”! Shop my favorite jumpsuits below.
The Nest has been a destination for unique gifts and home accents for over a decade. Donald Fowler, buyer and store manager, gave us a few useful tips about writing thank you notes. Did you know that your thank you notes are only suppose to be 3 sentences long? I was glad to hear that! Are you tired of giving the same old hostess gifts…I know I am. Try giving some personalized stationary for a change, it’s a much more thoughtful gift than say a bottle of wine.
THE HAND WRITTEN THANK YOU NOTE WILL NEVER GO OUT OF STYLE:

James Jeans was nice enough to gift me these AMAZING gray skinny jeans – the perfect shade of gray by the way! Thank you so much JamesJeansfor this fabulous pair of jeans!! Have you ever owned a pair of gray jeans? If you haven’t it will change your life, well maybe not change your life, but it will for sure make you a bit more pleased with your wardrobe once you invest in a pair. Here is the reason – they literally go with everything and can be worn all year round. Their versatility is endless – they will look so effortless styled with a simple white tee and a leather jacket, a dressy silk blouse in ivory, black or even royal blue is a fantastic color to pair with gray. Also, light pinks are a wonderful shade to pair them with in spring and summer. The fit is absolutely perfect, they hug your curves in all the right places and are extremely comfortable! I am a huge of James Jeans and can’t wait to purchase my next pair!
For comparison, I am wearing a size 26. They run true to size.

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!! I hope all of you have a safe and fun holiday!!!!
When I purchase something as crazy as a red leather jacket…I bought it because it was on sale…crazy sale…like 70% off…I plan everything else in my outfit around that item. Keep it simple when styling around a part of your outfit that you want to stand out. I chose to pair my jacket with a simple white tee from J Crew – the perfect tee’s in my opinion (so soft, comfy and affordable), a pair of denim shorts and flat black sandals. I have included several red leather jackets at different price points in my ‘SHOP THE POST’ below. A leather jacket is something that every girl should have in her wardrobe. A leather jacket can easily be dressed up or down – try pairing it with a maxi dress, pencil skirt, boyfriend jeans, or even a fitted dress, the possibilities are endless! A must have for sure, and if red isn’t your color opt for a black or navy – great colors that can be worn all year round. Happy Shopping!
In summer time the importance of a good white shirt and a good pair of cut-offs is very high! I would put these 2 items at the top of my “must have” list for summer. So easy to throw on to run errands, lunch with friends, or a even a summer concert. The accessories you put with your simple shirt and shorts will make ALL the difference. If you want to dress the look up a bit, opt for a heel or wedge and heavier jewelry, for a more casual ensemble minimize your jewelry and pair with a cute pair of flat sandals - these I love from J Crew. The key to wearing shorts is to air on the bigger side, do not ever wear your shorts too tight or too short!! As for the white shirt – over-sized is in right now and I love to tuck in just the front for the perfect effortless and chic look.
Thanks for stopping by today!! I really appreciate all of you!!! XOXO!!
I adore rompers!! They are so easy to style and so versatile. They can easily be dressed up or down. I dressed this one up a bit for a dinner date with my husband. The weather was so beautiful in Laguna Beach – perfect summer night for this printed romper that I purchased from Intermix. If you would rather dress it down pair it with some tkee flip-flops or a pair ofwhite leather birkenstocks…all the rage right now, but I haven’t purchased my own just quite yet. What do you think of birkenstocks? I will include several of my favorite rompers of the moment in my “SHOP THE POST” below. Happy Shopping!!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous weekend!! XOXO!!
What a fabulous day I got to have last Monday with Tanya and Cathy!! We are all 40+ bloggers with a slightly different style – check out their blogs for sure! We previewed the Koch Fall 2014 line – it’s AMAZING to say the least. Nicole Musselman, a local Dallas designer who happens to be my husbands cousin, is very talented and I absolutely love her entire line! Her line is available at Stanley Korshakand Cabana in Dallas as well as many other boutiques around the country. I am also wearing jewelry by Szor Collections which I adore, so chic and elegant!
