Ohh this wrap dress with a leather jacket – I kind of died a bit when I put the two together, it is truly a showstopper combination! As we inch closer to the holidays, I’m excited to have my friends back in Austin…which means lots of dinners, cocktail hours around town (…and lots of excuses to rock some adorable outfits! 😉 ). read more
Come on in and cozy up! The countdown to Christmas is just days away (…not going to worry about that lengthy holiday shopping list I still have to get to…haha ah!), and what’s more relaxing than throwing on some ultra soft pajamas, plush slippers and sipping coffee while surrounded by holiday decor with some Christmas tunes in the background? Sounds like my kinda r&r! read more
A big trend this year and as we look ahead to 2018 is 100% cotton, no stretch denim. I say this often, but even with an overflowing jeans drawer, I tend to reach for the same two pairs of jeans (the ones in this post and these). While I love good pair of low-rise, extra stretchy skinnies for everyday running around, definitely the most flattering pair of denim I own are my Levi’s 501 skinny jeans. High rise, no stretch, classic denim – they really are the best! (…I’ve even noticed Blake tends to comment more on an outfit if I have these on, ha!). read more
Introducing perhaps THE cutest gift idea I’ve ever come across…it’s called “Coffee & a Classic” by Cratejoy and truly…this is a thoughtful, precious gift for anyone…and especially those hard-to-shop-for / people-with-everything types! I am super selective when it comes to subscription-style gifting, but when I saw this one online I knew it would be a total win. If you know someone who likes to cozy up on the couch with a fresh cup and a good book, then this is for you! read more
I know I know…we haven’t even reached Christmas yet and I am about to bring up New Years Eve…! BUT hear me out… Isn’t it always SO relieving to plan ahead and not be scrounging for something to wear? (…It’s also relieving not to make your house a total mess while doing so haha…I am definitely guilty of emptying my closet and shouting “I have nothing to wear!” five minutes before we have to leave…). Thus, to avoid a stressful “what should I wear?!” situation, I’ve got you covered with a classy outfit option (and a few more at the end of this post) featuring THE prettiest blush jumpsuit (…swoon!!) and a fabulous leather moto jacket. Let’s get to it! read more
Oh goodness…not sure I could be more excited to partner with Backcountry for today’s post! When thinking of an amazing, all encompassing outdoors retailer that has every brand under the sun…it is 100% Backcountry. With all the traveling I’ve been doing (…hello, beautiful Iceland in this post!), shopping for wintery clothing (and a weather resistant jacket, in particular) has been high on my list of wardrobe priorities. Though I live in Austin where it is generally quite warm, we actually had some snowfall last week and this jacket came in handy once again!
Fear not, I’ve got my full Iceland wrap-up post in the works for early January (…and editing these photos gave me all the nostalgia pangs…!), so be sure and check in for that one in weeks to come. 🙂 For now, let’s get to this wonderful, cozy and WARM (#necessary in Iceland haha) outfit! read more
Happy weekend, friends! I hope y’all had a wonderful week…between traveling, finishing up a few collaborations and spending some time brainstorming future LL posts (lots of good stuff in the works!!), I am looking forward to spending quality time with Blake and just enjoy being home! Saturday mornings are my favorite…hot coffee, pajamas, Watson cuddles…always good stuff to wake up to. We are also hoping to finish up our gallery wall in the family room this weekend – just need a few more frames and we should be good to go! Excited to share more home decor posts in 2018. 🙂
In the meantime, I’ve got a lot more style posts headed your way this month! Y’all know I’m a huge Madewell shopper (…literally every time I get paid I’m like, “Here you go Madewell, take it aaaaall!” haha), and there’s a reason this is one of my favorite brands. Classic, versatile, timeless, casual…basically all of my favorite fashion elements rolled into one. Ps. This is not a sponsored post, I am just such a major fan of the brand! Excited to share a few key pieces I’ve been wearing non-stop this season…
I am thrilled to shed some spotlight on a brand that is sort of blowing my mind with just how comfortable EVERY single item is…from activewear to jeans, sweaters, pullovers and a whole lot more…Lolë has it ALL! (…and I am not even joking when I tell you I am wearing those same jeans – seen above – as I write this blog entry, ha! Sign of a VERY good pair of pants!). read more
A big thank you to Lole for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.
Hello there! How’s your week going? I’ve been a busy bee in New York City for the last five days…it was a whirlwind but SO fun! NYC during the holidays truly is as magical as it looks in the movies (…clearly I had high expectations over here, ha) and it was quite incredible to experience. Rockefeller Center, 5th Avenue window displays (swoon!), Union Square holiday market, sipping hot chocolate all bundled up in coats and scarves…yep, definitely not my typical Texas winter and I enjoyed every second. Aaaand as sad as I am to leave my best friends and the fabulous NYC energy, I am very much looking forward to some hubby and Watson cuddles asap when I get back to Austin! read more
Hey ladies – how’s your week going? It’s been a whirlwind over here…can’t believe it’s already Thursday! Today Blake and I are headed to NYC for a few days with the Home Depot team – they’re partnering with Domino Magazine to host a pop-up shop opening in Soho…we are so excited to meet the HD team and enjoy the event! Will feel kind of weird to be without Watson for so long (…he’s in good hands, his grandma is watching him), we’ve both become so used to having a puppy by our feet at all times haha. However, we’re excited to enjoy a short and sweet getaway for just the two of us! Feel free to follow along over on my Instagram and IG stories this week…should be a fun one!
In other news, our Texas winter is back in full force this week…which means a beautiful, crisp 70 degrees out…ha! Perfect for a cropped sweater (…how magical is this color?! I keep referring to it as my “mermaid sweater”), relaxed denim and some casual slides… read more
