I LOVE military jackets (especially because this one from Old Navy is under $45! They are so casual and effortless and can be easily dressed up or down and worn to a ton of places! They have been in style for a while now, but they are especially big this spring! I would consider the military jacket one of spring’s “MUST HAVES”! I have worn mine with just about everything from jeans and a simple tee, over a long black maxi dress, and with denim cut-offs and t-kees in the summer. If you don’t already own a military jacket I highly recommend adding one to your wardrobe. I have provided several of my favorites at various prices points to accommodate all budgets.
Happy Shopping and Happy Spring!! Thank you so much for stopping by today!!
I love denim, whether it’s a pair of jeans or a shirt or a jacket – I’m hooked on denim! It’s so easy to wear and can be dressed up or down and paired with so many things and worn so many places. These days denim is more acceptable than ever, even in the work place, if paired with a fitted blazer and some pumps it can pass as the perfect casual Friday ensemble. Denim on denim is a big trend right now and has been for a while. The key is to keep your denim shades slightly different and add some chic accessories, like a killer handbag and a chic pair of pumps for a dressier look or for a more casual look opt for these amazing pointy toe sneakers (they are under $60 and come in black, white and light blue) – so chic and yet so comfortable!

Spring is approaching and I’m so excited about all of the new colors and trends that are happening this season! I was so thrilled to be invited to the Neiman Marcus Spring Fashion Show hosted by Tanya Foster of Film, Fashion,Fun - she is a dear friend of mine and a fellow fashion and lifestyle blogger. The fashion show was held in the Glass Room inside of Neimans downtown and it is absolutely stunning, a must see for sure!
TOP SPRING TRENDS:
1.) FRINGE: A huge trend and definitely one of my favorites! It’s on everything from shoes, to handbags, to tops and jackets – so bohemian chic and so perfect! The Stuart Weitzman nude fringe heels on the model above wearing the skinny jeans are a must have for sure! I just might have to purchase those myself.
2.) THE FLARE JEAN: Yes, it’s coming back hard and I’ll have to say I’m a big fan of the flare jean and here’s why: they are the most universally flattering jean on the market. No matter what your size or shape, the flare jean is sure to elongate your legs and make you look slimmer. The key is to pair it with a heel or wedge. I will say they were showing the flare jean with low wedges and flats as well which is fine, however, if you really want to look taller and thinner opt for a wedge or heel. I can’t wait to wear my flare jeans this spring!!
3.) SPICE MARKET COLORS: The gorgeous flowers photographed above were the center pieces for the tables at the fashion show – these stunning arrangements represent the perfect shades of the spice market colors that are HUGE this spring. Beautiful oranges in all shades, from bright hues to rust, this color is sure to make you stand out this spring. I love this Joie top – it’s the perfect shade of orange and will look fabulous paired with flare jeans and turquoise jewelry!
4.) BOLD TURQUOISE JEWELRY: Yes, it’s back and it’s back big, bold and chunky! Turquoise looks so fabulous paired with the spice market colors because it really stands out and makes a statement! Hopefully, you saved some of your old turquoise jewelry from when it was in style, so pull it out and pile it on this spring! If you didn’t, no worries, Cusp has several stunning pieces at very affordable prices, like this bracelet and necklace.
5.) All WHITE: I adore wearing all white, it really stands out in a sea of all black which is what most people seem to wear. Don’t get me wrong, I love an all black look as well, but in the spring and summer nothing says chic, clean, and fresh like an all white ensemble. I love the all white look they did above in the fashion show. A white moto jacket is for sure a wardrobe staple! I love this off white moto jacket and this one for less. Throw it over a white maxi dress, wear with white flare jeans and a neutral fringe heel for less here, or even with a pencil skirt and silk tank. The possibilities are endless, which is why the white moto jacket is a wardrobe staple!!
6.) BOLD LIP: With each new season it’s important we think not just about our wardrobe, but about our make-up as well. It’s just as important as what we are wearing on our bodies, trust me! They were showing minimal make up on the eyes paired with a bold lip. My all time favorite lip color for spring and summer is Tom Ford’s lip stick in TrueCoral! It’s the best hands down, his lipsticks stay put and the pigment is amazing! They last a long time as well! I also love Coachella Coral by Charlotte Tilbury which is what I have on in this post. It’s not quite as orange as Tom Ford’s True Coral, it’s more of a pinky coral – so pretty for spring!
7.) LONG PATIO DRESSES: Easy to wear and so chic and effortless, the patio dress can be worn to so many places. A summer wedding, a dinner party, a girl’s night out, or a date night. The possibilities are endless which why I love long, flowy, dresses so much! This gorgeous bold orange one is my top pick – this would look stunning with some chunky turquoise jewelry like this amazing necklace by Nest and the fringe heels that I’m so in love with. This look would represent so many of this season’s trends – a look that will take you many places in style!

I found this faux fur jacket on Nasty Gal, a very affordable clothing website that has really amazing finds! This faux fur jacket is the perfect piece to throw on when you’re going on a date or on a fun girl’s night out. It adds that little extra glam to any outfit. My favorite way to wear a faux fur jacket is with jeans, of course, if you have been following me for a while now you know that my favorite thing to wear is jeans! Faux fur is also very affordable, and versatile which are always good! Pair this jacket with a black pencil skirt, and a white tank, and black pumps for a more conservative look for work or church or throw it over a sexy black maxi dress for a dressier ensemble. Unfortunately, the one I’m wearing is sold out, however, I found this one in black that is very similar and this one in black and navy at Nordstrom Rack that I love too! Happy Shopping!
Have a great weekend!! Thank you for stopping by today!! XOXO!!
It’s that time again, our monthly “Chic at Every Age” post. We decided to do a “What to Wear to Tea” look. We chose to visit the amazing Tea at TASCHEN tea room in The Joule Hotel. There aren’t that many places in Dallas that offer high tea, so The Joule decided to start offering an afternoon champagne tea service in their TASCHEN Library. This beautiful library is filled with amazingly chic fashion books and coffee table books, it’s the perfect setting to have tea with your girl friends! The food is absolutely fabulous, delicious finger sandwiches and dainty pastries added the perfect touch. This is a wonderful place to take your friends and family for a special occasion or just to get away for a fun girl’s outing!
You can make your reservation by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can view their DELICIOUS seasonal menu here: Tea at TASCHEN Menu
Red – a color I rarely wear, but what a perfect time to wear it!! I picked up this Iro jacket for 70% off last summer at the Iro store in Beverly Hills! The color is so bright and pretty, it really stands out and makes a statement. When I’m styling a statement piece like this red jacket, I always keep everything else in my outfit neutral – I chose to pair it with grays and whites, which are going to be huge this spring and summer! I’m really loving these white pumps I purchased from Intermix, definitely a “Must Have” for spring! They are perfect for a date night or a girls night out. I found this pair which I love, they are very similar and are a ton less – who doesn’t love a great deal? Happy Shopping!!
Thank you so much stopping by today!! XOXO!!
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!! I hope all of you have a wonderful Valentine’s filled with lots of love and blessings!!
Fur vests, faux or real are a favorite of mine! They really take any casual outfit to the next level. I purchased this fur vest from Intermix about a month ago on sale, it’s no longer available, but I found this one at Nordstrom that is similar and amazing!! I love navy, pair with black now for fall and winter, and in the spring pair with white or gray – super chic and glamorous!!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a great week!! XOXO!!
I’m obsessed with these amazingly chic gray cuffs by This That & Moore!This That & Moore is a local company started by Shelley Moore, a very fabulous and talented Dallas designer. I always love to support local designers, especially when their product line is this AMAZING! The gray cuffs I’m wearing called the Saturday Bracelet are made of genuine alligator skin, so chic, and yet simple enough to wear with a wide variety of pieces in any women’s wardrobe! I adore their versatility, I have already worn mine with multiple looks, dressy and casual – from a pencil skirt and a blazer to church, to a leather jacket and skinny jeans on a date night, and I can’t wait to wear them pool side with a white swim suit and long gauzy cover-up. They come in 2 different sizes, small and large – I’m wearing one of each size in this post, they come in a wide array of gorgeous colors, and finally they come in 2 different finishes – matte and glazed -I’m wearing the glazed birch. They are super comfortable, I forget I even have them on! I’ll be wearing my gray cuffs a ton – they are definitely one of my favorite accessories of the moment!!

I love wearing neutrals in the winter – winter whites and grays are such a great compliment to one another! These pieces will also transition well into spring. I have worn these gray jeans in numerous posts already and will continue to wear them into spring. They are very versatile because of their neutral color – If you haven’t added a pair of gray jeans to your wardrobe I highly suggest it. They go with everything and I promise you will wear them a ton! With all of the pastels that are going to be in for spring, they will be the perfect pair of jeans to pair with all of these gorgeous spring colors!
If you only add one jacket to your spring wardrobe – let it be a white or ivory leather jacket – faux or real. Another fabulous and versatile piece that you can wear many places! I purchased mine about a year and half ago on sale at Neimans and since then I have worn it a ton! I love pairing it with all black in the fall and winter and with neutral shades and pastels in the spring and summer. I have provided 3 of my favorites at 3 different price points to accommodate all budgets. Happy Shopping!
Thank you so much for reading my blog! I am grateful for all of you! Have a great week!!
I purchased this black blazer a while back from Nordstrom, and since then I have worn it a ton! The more you love something the more you will wear it, so if you don’t love it, then don’t buy it! A black blazer is a definite “Must Have” in any women’s wardrobe. It is such a versatile piece, you can dress it up by pairing it with a pencil skirt, a silk tank and some pumps for work or church, or to create a more casual look pair it with some jeans and a tee and your favorite heel or wedge. Simple and versatile – a black blazer is a key piece you should think about adding to your closet. I have selected several of my favorites at various price points in this post. Happy Shopping!
Thank you for stopping by today! Have a fabulous weekend!! XOXO!
