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?

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.

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!

Little White Dress…

 

IMG_4448

Let’s get right down to it. I’ve had this dress for months, and to be honest had completely forgotten about it. While going through my closet trying to find dresses I hadn’t worn yet for my upcoming trip, appears this beautiful white OTS dress. Yeah, I know you know about the LBD, but let me introduce you to the LWD.! What took me so long to wear it, because it’s absolutely beautiful. The fit was so roomy and comfortable. The sleeves added a little flare to the dress, don’t you think? As I was looking through the photos, I realized I should pose like that more often, I had a slimming look (I’m sure you can relate) going on. I’m here to tell you, white is always clean and crisp. I opted to wear a straw hat, and black booties to complete my ensemble. Check out these cute earrings though, I scored them from Sam Moon for $6.99. My bag Is a dupe of the Cult Gaia bag. Now what are you waiting for, let’s get to shopping for your LWD (little white dress), and forget what they say about not wearing white after Labor Day. Wear what makes you HAPPY!
