Alright friends, getting a little more personal today and chatting about something I don’t post about often…makeup! As I get older, I find myself buying the same beauty products over and over…when you figure out something that works, you can’t go without it! I have shared previously that I am not a big makeup gal (all about accentuating that natural beauty, not covering it up…), and today I’m sharing a few of my absolute essentials for fall! (I mean…can we talk about that yummy eye color shadow palette above? Swoon!). read more
If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember a quick weekend getaway I took to El Paso last month! I wasn’t allowed to say much at the time, but I am SO excited to finally share that I am one of seven tastemakers chosen by ASOS and Hotel Indigo to style a day and night look inspired by our stay and selected city. A little playful, a little southwest-inspired…take a peek at my West Texas photo diary! Major shoutout to Blake for being down to explore, snap photos and eat aaaall the green chili peppers along the way! 😉
Happy weekend, ladies! How was your week? I am writing this post from our hotel in NYC, my friend Elissa is sound asleep and I woke up early to grab coffee and peruse the internet (…aka a happy place of mine haha). If you follow me on Instagram, I shared that I am tagging along with Elissa on all of her work overnights this week (she’s a flight attendant), which means a day in Amsterdam, NYC and our final stop is Iceland! It has been a complete whirlwind blast and I am so thankful to 1. see her in action (her job is no joke, I’d be a zombie, these ladies don’t ever stop!) and 2. see two countries I have been dying to visit! She made me her work companion, so I am able to hop on these flights for free if there are extra seats available. Lots of airport time, seeing a weeks worth of sights in a day (I have consumed an unreasonably amount of coffee on this trip haha) and spending some wonderful quality time with my oldest friend! (Known her since we were 15). Life is good and I am so grateful for these memories we’re creating together. Lots of delirious laugh attacks already haha and more to come as we continue on this trip!
Now that I’ve written a novel haha, let’s get to this look! Hello, CUTEST/COZIEST (all caps worthy) blush and white striped flannel top – this one is a must, lemme tell ya. 😉 read more
Aaand just like that, it’s time for Austin City Limits music fest! 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! read more
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. read more
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! read more
Fall is just a couple of weeks away! In the meantime, I’m excited to stock up on a few essentials for the new season…and namely, these gorgeous mule booties. Insert about ten heart eye emojis here. 😉 read more
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!
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!
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! read more
