Flowered weekends...

 Top: Topshop | Jeans: Citizens of Humanity
Flats: Valentino | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff
Sunglasses: Celine (similar style here )


...


It's the weekend! Woo! 
I put together a fancy casual outfit for your Saturday inspiration. 
The high neck and ruffle give this top such feminine details that I love, I'm wearing a size 8US just because I find Topshop tops run small. These CofH jeans are one of my favorite pair! The high waist and little bit of stretch in the jeans make them so comfortable, I'm wearing size 27 and they fit true to size. 
It is always a fun day when I pull out my Valentino flats :)   
Hope everyone has a great weekend. xx

Current Craves...

Hey everyone! 
I decided since my birthday is coming up and my mom keeps asking me what I want... lol, I would go ahead and make a current craves list! The entire list is from Nordstrom, you could say I have a little problem with shopping there WAY too much. Nordstrom, along with all of their amazing Anniversary sale items they just got in, has a lot of other items in their new arrivals that sadly aren't on sale, but way too hard to stay away from! I'm DYING for the Stuart Weitzman brown booties next to the green Alexander Wang bag. The booties remind me of the pair Louis Vuitton designed for their Couture line, I'm crazy in love! 
Also, the last time I was in the store I was browsing around the La Mar counter and started talking with the La Mer manager about my skin. I pointed out some trouble areas that had just come up in the past week or so and she gave me a sample of "The Concentrate." She advised me not to be too generous, a little goes a long way. I figured that was best especially considering the price point which, not to mention, is way out of my price range. Of course, I fell in love with the product. The concentrate is so silky and has the most divine smell, very fresh and clean. So, my skin cleared up and is looking so much better and now I'm in a pickle! Definitely a product I will save up for! Hoping to get some outfit pics up VERY soon! :) xx

Midi Skirts and Lace...



 
 Skirt: Chicwish | Top: ASOS (similar style here) |
Shoes: Vince Camuto
Bag: Louis Vuitton | Watch: Kate Spade


...


Today I'm posting a great Sunday best outfit. 
Well, for the people who know me, know I'm not the most religious person, so maybe this outfit would also be great for a luncheon, a tea,  a fancy baby shower? I love how feminine this look is, the beautiful flower print on the skirt, the lace detail on the top, and the gold jewelry all are so sweet together. 
Chicwish is a great site to find really feminine pieces that don't break the bank! There are so many different patterns and different lengths as well. I like this one herehere and here. I am always skeptical when I find great pieces online that have the low price tag, thinking that maybe the quality wont be so great... but this skirt does not disappoint. The clasps that hold the skirt together are strong and sown in well. I am wearing a size small for reference, sits right on the skinnier part of my waist, and is true to size.  

Today is my besties birthday! Happy Happy Birthday Jeaniners! Love you <3
I have a fun event at VRSI Houston tonight, Bingo in the Heights for Jeanine's birthday on Thursday and then hopefully taking her to dinner one of the others nights. I hope everyone has a great week. xx

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale...

Hey everyone, happy Friday! 
Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale has just begun and I made this great collage of some of my favorite pieces that are available this year. The sale is in it's early access phase, so only people with a Nordstrom debit or credit card can shop the sale, it will be available to all the public on July 22nd and will end August 8th. 
There are so many beauty exclusives that are part of the sale, I always think this La Mer package is a great deal and the MAC "look in a box" in "Sunkissed" and "Downtown Diva" are so amazing! They are putting all full size products in the bag and they are the most stunning makeup looks. 
I hope everyone has had a great week and happy shopping!! xx

Peonies...

Dress: Cynthia Steffe | Sandals: Rebecca Minkoff
Sunglasses: Le Specs | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff

It's Friday!!...
Honestly I want to be excited that is it Friday but I am sitting here, it is one thirty in the morning and I am watching the news about what is happening in Dallas, it is just so sad and scary. Prayers for all the family's that have lost their loved one to this terrible attack. Hopefully this madness will end soon.
On a fashion note, not that I'm in the mood...
I really love this dress, it is so feminine and summery (wearing a size small). It is on sale at Saks off Fifth and if it is out of stock you can contact Nordstrom and they will price match for you! Love their customer service.
Hope everyone has fun plans for the weekend. xx

Fourth of July...

Dress: Current/Elliott | Sandals: Rebecca Minkoff
Bag: Prada | Sunglasses: Valentino 


...


It's Thursday already! 
Isn't it great how fast the week goes by when it's only a four day week? Love it. 
Well, I'm a little late with my Fourth of July post. I left my camera at my besties house on Sunday and didn't drive across town to pick it up until yesterday. Either way, I think this outfit works for all of summer, so technically I'm not too late! I found this dress at Last Call and it was such a great deal (I have linked some other great dress options from Last Call down below). I mean how crazy cute is this dress? I love how the upper-waist of the dress is fitted and the top is a bit blousey. The three-quarter sleeves look great down and rolled up. I originally tried this dress on with a denim vest which looked super cute as well. I think if you wanted to take away some of the Fourth of July-ness, pairing this dress with a blush or white colored bag would be great too. 

My family had the best time this past weekend spending time together for the Fourth. Hamilton, Billy, and I had all the family over to our house for the first time and we swam, Sophie my golden swam the most of course, my parents cooked the best food (Uncle Jay made the best brownies) and then my cousin and his fiance surprised us and drove from Austin to spend the day with all of us. It was so wonderful! I think we definitely all agreed we need more family time like that!
Hope everyone continues to have a great week. xx
