Grab your gals, hit up the craft beer tent and of course, wear your festival best. 😉 Breezy, boho and a little edgy, this floral frock + ankle booties combo is an absolute DO. Comfy kicks and a flattering wrap dress? This combo was pretty much MADE for dancing! See ya at Jay-Z in this getup!

Stripes & Sneakers

Happy Monday, ladies! How was your weekend? Blake and I celebrated our one year anniversary with a stay-cation at a hotel here in town…it was fun to get away yet be 10 minutes from home! We indulged in drinking a little too much wine and I was asleep by 10pm, ha! Seriously…I am SUCH a granny these days. All good, I was deep in a food and wine coma…sign of a good evening in my opinion haha.

Tan Suede Ankle Booties

Ohh that earth tones color palette, without fail it has me swooning – especially as the seasons change! A classic army green utility jacket, some on-trend denim (love the distressed ankles) and of course, a beautiful pair of ankle booties. It’s a foolproof recipe for a go-to fashionable, fall uniform!

My New BFF: Boyfriend Jeans

Hey ladies! Pardon my radio silence over the past week…things got kinda hectic in my world (to put it lightly! One of those “I need 10 of me” kind of things…), so it was time to take a step back from posting content and instead focus on creating some good stuff headed to LL very soon! Currently I am taking the weekend to recenter and get organized…I’ve just spent the past three hours at a random Starbucks in South Austin listening to everything from Odessa to Beyonce and finishing strong with new John Mayer, as I buckle down and knock out emails + photo edit (our laundry room is DONE! And so are the photos – wahoooooo!). Anyways…life is good, I am alive and the caffeine has kicked in…nothin’ like some quality tunes and a cozy coffeehouse nook…my happy place!

The Best Button-Up Top

Hey ladies! How’s your weekend going? We just got back home from our quick trip to El Paso and we are excited to spend the rest of the long weekend relaxing at home. My bestie Elissa is headed over to the house tonight for some vino, always the best when she’s in town! (She’s a flight attendant, so it’s a treat when she texts me that she’s back in Austin…even if just for 24 hours, ha!).

We’ve still got 20 official days left of summer, but I know this Texas heat will stick around for a while after that! Thus, a relaxed yet polished button up top, rolled cutoff shorts and my fave fedora hat is a killer combo to beat the heat and look pretty darn adorable at the same time. Also…can you tell my current accessory of choice is an iced coffee? Every time we go and snap outfit photos it’s my reward for mustering some big ‘ol cheesy smiles amidst the Austin heat, ha!

Leather Mini Skirt & Boxy Tee

Haaaappy Friday, ladies! (Well, we’re close enough now.. 😉 ). Phewww…this week was a doozy, very glad to have a weekend of recovery! Our laundry room renovation is SO close to being complete…adding final touches and making a couple changes, then it’s time to snap the photos and share with the world. 😉 Can’t wait…it’s a beauty!

This weekend Blake and I are headed on a quick getaway to El Paso, Texas (I’m working on a fun project with ASOS that I’ll share with y’all in mid-September…), and though we’ll be busy bees snapping photos for this one, it will be wonderful to spend some quality time together and explore a new city. Any LL readers from El Paso? Would love any recommendations you have! (Coffee shops, restaurants, cute boutiques…).

Okay okay, now onto this outfit…ready to take you straight to happy hour or an evening out!

Custom Cutoff Levi’s Shorts

Do you ever scroll around Pinterest and find yourself re-pinning the SAME item over and over? That’s me when it comes to Levi’s cutoff shorts…I feel like I can always find the perfect inspiration shot online, but when it comes to finding a perfect fit for these things, that’s the tough part! Too short, too long, too tight, too much booty showing – you know what I mean? Buuut then I did some Internet searching (…or more like I clicked on every cutoff Levi’s shorts image on Pinterest…*Insert face-palm here*) and it finally led me to an Etsy store that cuts CUSTOM Levi’s shorts made to your measurements! Not going to lie, I did an actual happy dance when I put these cute cutoffs on…never have I ever loved a pair of Levi’s shorts so much!

My Go-To Fall Uniform

Aaand just like that, fall is upon us! Though I am soaking up these beautiful summer days, I can’t help but get SO excited for fall weather…which brings about cozy cardigans, backless loafers and one of my weaknesses…jeans! I’ve been searching for a new pair of perfect distressed skinnies that have some stretch and a lower rise (sometimes you just need a break from high-rise, ya know?) and lemme tell ya, THESE are magical!
