Let the fun begin, and by that I mean vacation. I’m always so excited when I get to do absolutely nothing. Although I have a few events planned for this week, I just plan on resting. Sharing with you today this stunning green pleated top that I paired with these gorgeous booties. But, let’s talk about these distressed jeans that I’ve had a few years, but will never go out of style. When I tell you they are extremely comfortable, they came with a pre-cuff, but I cuffed them a few more times to really showcase my booties. Until next time, have a great day!

Southern belle in plaid…

Happy Wednesday, I hope you all are having a fabulous day. Just stopping in to share this cute plaid fit and flare dress, actually I really just wanted to wear my new sock heel booties. Seriously, this is my second time ordering a dress from Justfab and initially I was a little apprehensive, because the first dress I ordered, didn’t work out. However when I tried this one on, I knew it was for me. What really made the outfit stand out were my sock heel booties. I love them so much… They have a bit of edge to them, what do you think? These will be my new staple booties for Fall and Winter.

Falling for burgundy…

04E5ED68-65F9-402D-96F8-922FB14E532C

Friday was day full of fun and excitement. I did a little Fall shopping, and that always seem to get me excited. I just wish Houston would get the memo on Fall, so I can finally wear some of my finds. JCPenney Fall line is one I can really get into, starting with the dress I’m wearing today. The fact that burgundy is a must Fall color, had me feeling some type of way. The color is so vibrant and rich. I think it’s one of the main reasons I fell in love with this dress.

I opted to wear my burgundy mules, and how cute is my burgundy bag. Didn’t I tell you I love this color… Also I knew my rose gold necklace would be a perfect addition, and finally my three toned Austin earrings completed the look, and your girl was ready. Until next time have a great day!

When black and white collide…

Hello all, I know it’s been a while since my last post, but work has been keeping me very busy. Just stopping in to share this beautiful cold shoulder dress. The blend of black and white is what I loved about the dress, and not to mention the pockets.

Now that’s a major win!

This dress can be purchased at my new favorite store Stage. Although I purchased it in store at Palais Royal, I’m sure you can find her at your local Stage store. I decided to pair the dress with my black and gold belt to add a little spice to it. Now my gold necklace is one of the pieces from my shopping event with Palais Royal, isn’t she gorgeous. What about these booties though, block heels are becoming my go to style for heels. They are Very comfortable and I can’t get enough of them. What are some of your go to style heels?

Set the Stage Review…

09B61704-2767-4EE4-9CA4-1DF6999C1229

I’m so excited to write this post about my Amazing experience I had collaborating with Palais Royal (part of the Stage Family). I have always been an avid shopper of the brand, and this experience solidified why. First let start with the shopping event, it was a cut above the rest. I had my very own personal shopper to help me pick my outfit for the event. Now of course, that was phenomenal. But, the best part of the day was picking an outfit to style for a mannequin. I was like a little kid running through the store, as I saw so many cute styles to choose from.

Jasmine, and her team exceeded my expectations and I was so looking forward to the “Big” day. Being able to share the stage with five other bloggers was so much fun. These ladies were warm, and very friendly, which calm my nerves quite a bit. As this was my first time participating in an event where I had to walk a stage showcasing my fashion choice. The ladies and I laughed, shared stories, and before long my nerves had slowly gone away. Thank you ladies for making this event one for the books.

Now, let’s talk about this beautiful cobalt blue lace dress I wore. The color alone had me feeling so beautiful and feminine. I live for a great lace dress, what about you? The photos really highlight all the details in this dress. The sleeves had to be my favorite part of the dress. I don’t know about you, but it’s just something about lace I can’t get enough of it. So, Trust me when I say this dress is a definitely must have for Fall. The dress can be dressed up for an evening with your significant other, or just an day of brunch with the girls. For my shoes, I went with the Madden Girl floral print heel sandals. And keeping more of the focus on the dress: I opted for gold accessories.

The “Set the Stage” event was outstanding. From the fabulous DJ Ernie ( he kept us moving) to the awesome guest, and the food cater by Cordua (oh my what can I say about that). It was so delish. There was so much love in the room, and you felt it from everyone present. The photo booth was so much fun from The Pic Shop. He provided so many props to choose from. The swag bags for the guest was a nice touch (who doesn’t love free goodies). My mom loved everything in her bag, she even tried to snag my sisters. My dad even won tickets to see his favorite team the Houston Texans.

To top it off, my mannequin was GORG! When I saw this leopard print cardigan I knew that was the perfect piece to showcase my edgy style. The cardigan spoke to me in ways you couldn’t understand. What women doesn’t love leopard print? Although I live in Houston, and you know it can be warm for the next few months. I decided to style the cardigan with a one shoulder black ruffle top. So on the chance it gets a little warm, you can take off the cardigan and you’re still trendy. All I needed to do now was pick the right pair of jeans, and booties of course. Levi jeans are classic, and never go out of style, so I knew that was the right choice. The black booties and tan bag brought the look completely together. All I thought was, my mannequin is fall approved and I loved everything about it.

Thank you to Jasmine and her team for allowing me to be apart of the first ever bloggers event. The hospitality that was displayed by the entire Stage family was one I will never forget. You ladies really know how to make a girl feel special.

Just stopping in to share the must have top for Fall. So, Whose ready for cooler temps?? This season Fall fashions are so rich with color. I’m beyond excited.

The Big 5-0…

IMG_9771

I have so many emotions going on right now. Wow, I can’t believe in just one day I will be turning 50. Where did the time go? I have learned so much through the years, because if you’re not learning, you’re not growing. I would be lying, if I didn’t say that I’m a bit scared though.

When I was in my 20’s and met people in their 50’s, I thought that was so old. Now that day is fast approaching for me, and I feel younger than I ever had. Does that even make sense? I don’t look 50, so why should I worry.

So for my 50th birthday, I decided I would take a cruise. Something about being on the water puts things into perspective. As I’m writing this, I look out at the water and I feel so free and full of life. I have so much living to do, and will take each day as another venture.

IMG_9768

If you don’t know, my mom is my best friend and biggest supporter in all that I do. So the fact I get to celebrate with her on my 50th birthday is the greatest gift of them all. This is her first cruise, so let’s just say September 12, will be a day neither of us forget.

IMG_9769

I believe in life, the things I went through in my younger years, has truly prepared me for this next chapter in my life. Now don’t get me wrong, my 20’s was okay, but my 30’s were the best. So sad, I can’t really remember much about my early 40’s, maybe cause those were the years I was married and very depressed. The later part of my 40’s was when I decided to take a leap and start my blog. Can you say this was the best decision EVER!

IMG_9770

So, 50 I’m ready for you, and all the exciting things that are going to happen. Happy Birthday to me!
