What is it about fall that just makes you want to wear a hat and boots everywhere you go?! I’m not sure, but I do love this style and time of year! We FINALLY have cooler temperatures here in Austin and I have busted out all of my fall favorites!

Whether you’re going to an antique fair, a wedding or work, these chic fall staples should get you through the fall season in style! As if Golden Goose doesn’t do sneakers perfectly already, now they’ve gone and done boots perfectly too! They are a little pricey, but so good. I consider myself a bit of a grandmillenial gal and this dress from H&M is right up my alley. It does not come with a waist belt, but I highly suggest wearing one with this dress…it goes from grandmillienal to marm quickly without one. Luckily, you can grab this tan one for under $15. I paired this look with my go-to large envelope YSL bag and this stunning Eugenia Kim hat. You can add the beautiful sage green wrap coat for an extra layer if its chilly where you are!

If you’ve got a date night or wedding in your future, scoop up this sheer black dress before its gone! I paired it here with a stunning starry night clutch and black bejeweled mules that look exactly like the Jimmy Choo’s from last season, but for 10 percent of the price!

I have also been loving my Gotta Have Face mask chain that looks like Van Cleef & Arpels. It is so convenient to wear around my neck and really looks like a beautiful necklace rather than a chain.

Hope you all have a safe and happy Halloween Weekend!

It is feeling like fall here in Austin, y’all and I am here for it!! This was my first summer in Austin and I was shocked at how hot/unbearable it was! So of course when I got a whiff of this 65 degree weather, I jumped on my chance to try out some of my new fall clothes!

Although many thought the “modern prairie” trend would not last, I’m happy to report that it is here to stay. I love feminine dresses with long sleeves so if that makes me look like I’m from Little House on the Prairie, then I’m totally ok with that!

1. Green Sweater 2. Leopard Face Mask 3. Gold Face Mask Chain 4. Green Plaid Dress 5. Wooden Hoop Earrings 6. Roxanne Assoulian Bracelets 7. English Factory Sweater Dress 8. Vintage Denim 9. Louis Vuitton “On the Go” Look Alike 10. Grey Celine Nano Belt Bag 11. Golden Goose Western Boots 12. Gucci Loafers 13. Stutterheim Raincoat

I recently picked up this plaid green dress by Sister Jane and am so in love with it! The fabric is a bit heavier than I expected, but it is beautiful in person and really well made! I’ve paired it here with a pair of old Zara boots that have since sold out, but I’ve linked a similar pair here, and my grey Celine Belt Bag. If boots are too heavy for the climate you’re in right now, I would suggest wearing this dress with tan ballet flats or even slide sandals.

If you’re looking for a for a casual fall uniform, look no further than this combo! I’m a sucker for anything green so this Cupcakes and Cashmere Sweater speaks to me on so many levels! The simplicity of the sweater and classic Moussy jeans (currently on sale) leave a perfect opening for these amazing Gucci loafers! Will be running all of my errands in this look for the next few months! If you’re looking to add a little more color to your look, I would suggest this amazing set of blush-toned bracelets from Roxanne Assoulian, they are 80 percent off right now at Moda Operandi! I know Christmas is still a few months away, but if you have ladies you need to buy gifts for, these make a fabulous stocking stuffer!

I also love a good raincoat for fall and when I saw this beige beauty from Stutterheim I got all of the Julia Roberts vibes in Notting Hill!! I like this one particularly because of the weight and it is just effortlessly chic.

Which clothing items and trends are you most excited about for fall?! Leave me a comment and let me know! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and enjoy some nice fall weather!

1. Gucci Dupe Sunnies 2. Pink Bottega Venetta Pouch 3. Free People Sun Hat 4. Pink Hunza G Swimsuit 5. Pink Sweater 6. Have a Nice Day T-shirt 7. Birkin Pool Float 8. Glitter Beach Balls 9. White Crop Frame Jeans 10. Tan Hermes Sandals 11. Leopard Ganni Shorts 12. Golden Goose Sneakers

Happy Friday from the mountains! I have had the best week exploring Montana and Utah and I’m not quite ready to go home. All though temperatures have been unusually high this week, the mornings are COLD!! This adorable tie dye sweatsuit from Amazon has been keeping me warm and cozy, not to mention cute!

1. Rose Mask 2. Jo Malone Earl Grey and Cucumber Perfume 3. Schutz Wrap Sandals 4. Tie Dye Sweatsuit 5. Free People Sweater 6. Roxanne Assoulin Bracelet 7. Cozy Cashmere Set 8. Dolce and Gabbana Wedges 9. Headband Holder

I have been in a cozy mood this summer and am loving the matching cashmere set from Nasty Gal as well as this amazing Free People bubble sweater that is on a major sale right now!

If you’re looking for cute summer sandals at a great price, check out the Schutz wrap sandals or the Dolce and Gabbana wedges! They are on sale right now and will go quickly.

I stocked up on my favorite scent this week from Jo Malone…Earl Grey and Cucumber! I wear this perfume every day and I love it because it is light and makes you smell like a spa! I also recently purchased a headband organizer from Amazon and I’m loving it! It has cleared up so much space on my dresser and I can actually see which headbands I have!

What are your favorite things this week?! Hope you all have the best weekend!!

Happy Friday, beautiful friends!! I am so excited for this weekend and for the fact that I finally have this bag!! I have been dreaming of buying a woven Bottega Veneta bag since last summer, but just couldn’t bring myself to spend more than $3,000!! on one. Luckily, I found a similar style on Amazon for 1 percent of the price of the real thing!! That’s right, this stunner is only $34! It comes in a bunch of colors, but I like this off-white color for summer.

This bag pairs perfectly with my new Banjanan dress that I’m wearing out for dinner tonight with my hubs! I am obsessed with this emerging brand. Caroline Weller, the founder and designer, worked on the design teams of Calvin Klein and J. Crew before moving to India and creating the bright, bold and beautiful, Banjanan. I’m wearing the Iris dress tonight and it is dreamy to say the least!

I think we all know by now that it is important to vote (major election year!!) so why not remind others in a cute way with this adorable Tory Burch T-shirt? I love it and plan to wear it even beyond the presidential election in November. I’m sure you’ve all seen this amazing lavender dress, by now, but if you haven’t, make sure you get one! It is the ultimate summer dress and SO feminine, I just love it!

I am also living for sets this year and I am so in love with the leopard print set by Ganni!! It is precious together or separately. I would definitely wear a white t-shirt with the shorts or black skinny jeans with the top. I would also love to pair it with these Chanel slides! Speaking of sets…who else loves a classic pajama set?! I sure do! I love this floral set by Ann Taylor and I love the price even more…it’s under $30!! Would be great for yourself or as a gift for a loved one.

If you’re like me and looking to sanitize and cleanse everything right now, check out this phone cleaner I found at Dilllard’s and diffuser from Amazon!

What are you loving this week? Leave me a comment and let me know! I hope you all have the best weekend!

Y’all…..this dress is giving me ALL of the Juliet vibes and I plan to live in it for the rest of this summer!! Did anyone else dream of being Claire Danes opposite *LEO* in the 90s version of Romeo + Juliet?! Because I did and this dress is getting me closer to that dream. I have a feeling this will sell out quickly so make sure you scoop it up while you can!

Considering we don’t have many places to go, the options for amazing dresses this summer have been impressive and shockingly well-priced. I am crushing on this white English Factory dress with rainbow trim and love that it is under $100. I also think the mint green gingham style midi dress from Tuckernuck is a classic closet staple, but it is a bit pricier. If you’re looking for the perfect top to wear with white skinny jeans, the blue and white striped blouse from English Factory is it. Paired with the tan Staud leather slides, you will no doubt be the chicest girl in the room if you make it out to any social gatherings soon!

I don’t know if you’re in the market for a new hand or body soap, but let me tell you about the Raw Sugar Living soaps. I discovered them a couple of weeks ago at Target and am now completely obsessed. At first I just tried the Watermelon + Mint hand soap because the bottle looked really cool and it was priced well ($4.99 compared to the $12.95 hand soap I buy at Williams-Sonoma) and I am so glad I gave it a shot! The Raw Sugar soaps are not tested on animals and they are sulfate and paraben free. The Watermelon + Mint flavor literally smells like a jolly rancher when I was my hands, it’s amazing! Since I liked the hand soap so much, I decided to buy the body wash too and I love it! As I’ve gotten older, I have developed an allergy to sulfates and it has been challenging to find a sulfate-free body wash that actually cleans your body well and is not $30 or $40. At $6.99, the Raw Sugar body wash is fresh, chemical-free and cleans well with a beautiful summery scent.

I hope everyone has an incredible weekend and that you love my picks this week!

Happy Friday, loves!! I am loving this weekend because there are so many amazing sales happening!! And right now, my FAVORITE dress of the summer is currently on sale and still available in a few sizes!! Use the code SUMMER on the J.crew website to get an extra 40 percent off of this showstopper of a dress.

We’re all wearing face masks when we go out now so why not get a really cute one? I love all things pastel so of course I am loving the new Stoney Clover pastel masks with these fun beads! Stoney Clover is also making clear cases for masks which are definitely an upgrade from the ziplock bags I’ve been carrying my masks around in!

I was browsing online the other night and I think I’ve created my dream summer outfit! Paring this white linen crop top and pants with simple tan sandals and rainbow accessories is the perfect look for a night out this summer for pretty much any activity. The rainbow pompom straw bag is currently on sale for just $51! If you want to dress it up a bit, you could swap out the wrap sandals for the Loeffler Randall Penny Knot Mules.

Times have been tough and I’ve noticed people are giving more gifts than usual to cheer friends and loved ones up. If you’re looking to do something like that and needing some inspiration, these are a few of my favorite gifts lately. I just randomly found the Bliss Jelly Glow Peel the other day at Target and I don’t normally experiment with drugstore skin care, but I caved in…I just love all things pink… and I’m so glad I gave this a shot! At $10, this peel has not irritated my face, but rather has truly made it glow! It is so easy to use too. You just rub it on in a circular motion after you wash your face and it takes away all of your dead skin–it is fabulous and I’m sure you and your friends will love it! Candles are also a great gift option, who doesn’t love candles?! The Fornasetti Candles are a little pricey, but smell great and really make a statement. I also just LOVE these lemon cocktail napkins…get a set of these, a nice bottle of vodka and a sparkling French lemonade and you’ve got yourself a beautiful and summery hostess gift!

I hope you loved my picks this week and I hope everyone has a SAFE and HEALTHY weekend!

Brit’s Picks: Fourth of July 🌟

Brit’s Picks: Fourth of July 🌟

Happy Friday, y’all!! Can you believe we are just a week away from Fourth of July celebrations?! Today I’m sharing my favorite patriotic finds to complete your party preparations! From your attire to decor, I’ve got you covered!

Are you still searching for the perfect Fourth of July decor for your party?! Target and Amazon have the cutest patriotic decorations at affordable prices and you will be able to get them in time for your celebration! I’m a big fan of stars so of course I love banners and garland made with red, white and blue stars. I also think these Meri Meri confetti rockets are a fabulous party favor for your friends and family.

As far as my Fourth of July outfit, I will be wearing my new Daily Sleeper Atlanta dress! I ordered mine in a size small and in the “Azure Blue” color. I love the color of this dress and how feminine and comfortable it is. As much as I do love this dress, it did take two months to be delivered so I wouldn’t recommend planning on wearing it immediately, but I will say, it is totally worth the wait.

For other festive looks, I would pair the USA crop top or the beautiful Mi Golondrina top with a pair of white L’Agence Margot high-rise jeans. This is my all-time favorite pair of jeans…I have them in white and a classic blue and get so many compliments whenever I wear them.

I also love the white LoveShackFancyxTarget dress for a festive option….you can pair it with some turquoise earrings and maybe a red bow in your hair and you with have the perfect outfit. I ordered this dress online in a size 2 and it fits perfectly. It looks almost exactly like the LoveShackFancy Edie dress, but much more affordable. It’s still in stock in a few sizes at Target, you don’t want to miss this one! I shared this navy blue polka dot dress from Tory Burch last week and I had to share it again because it is just too cute and it is now under $200. This is a quintessential Fourth of July dress and would be so cute with a red headband or jewelry to show your American pride.

If you’re hitting the beach, pool or the lake, I would suggest this gorgeous high-waisted red bikini from Mara Hoffman. I have a few bikinis from Mara Hoffman and I normally wear a small in the top and medium in the bottoms. These swimsuits are definitely an investment, but they fit perfectly and are made so well… you can keep them for years!

No outfit is complete without a great pair of shoes and for this Fourth of July, I will be wearing the Zara bow slides. They just got marked down to $35 and are a perfect neutral for summer. If you’re looking to splurge this holiday weekend, look no further than these chambray Chanel beauties or these chic Gucci slides. They are the perfect compliment to any patriotic look you have planned!

Whether you’re barbecuing with family, going out on the boat or the beach for the fourth, you will definitely need a festive face mask and of course, Evian face mist to beat the heat!

What are your plans for the Fourth? Leave me a comment and let me know! Hope you are all staying safe, happy and healthy this weekend!

What a week it has been, friends! It is always kind of crazy coming back from vacation, but it feels like this week has just blown by! Although this week has been fast, it has also been filled with some amazing sales…from Tory Burch’s Semi-Annual Sale to Net-A-Porter’s major sale, we are in store for some great deals as we head into summer and I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites on the blog today.

For my picks this week I have to start right off with these pearl sunglasses. I ordered them in April and I just got them in the mail on Monday…I have not stopped wearing them and everywhere I go, I get SO many compliments!! From the dry cleaners to lunch with my girlfriends, everyone loves these sunglasses and are blown away when I tell them I got them from Amazon for $13.99!!

1. Pearl Sunglasses 2. Tory Burch Polka Dot Dress 3. Tory Burch Fish Earrings 4. Sisley Black Rose Cream 5. Zimmerman Dress 6. Ulla Johnson Maxi Dress 7. Ulla Johnson Ruffle Top 8. Pink Free People Dress 9. Lisa Marie Fernandez Bikini
10. TKEES Lace Up Sandals 11. Ganni Midi Skirt  12. Corkcicle Canteen

I am also so excited about the Tory Burch sale this week. Tory Burch clothing is some of my favorite–it is so well made, effortlessly chic and flattering. I do think her prices are a bit steep, but as soon as her clothes go on sale, I snatch them up! I am in love with the navy blue and white polka dot dress and these fish earrings are to die for! A couple of years ago, I bought a similar set of earrings from her, but they are gold dragonflies and I’m hoping I will love these fish just as much. They are such a steal at $75!

Pictured here on New Years Eve 2018 wearing the Dragonfly Tory Burch earrings.

Net-a-Porter is also offering 50 percent off of hundreds of styles this week and some of my favorite designers are included in the sale! I live for Zimmerman and Ulla Johnson, but they are also brands I prefer to buy on sale. I am loving this peach Zimmerman dress with floral detailing, the cream puff-sleeve blouse from Ulla Johnson and this blue and white maxi dress from Ulla Johnson as well! They are all half-off right now so its a great time to buy and you have all summer to wear these beautiful pieces.

Aside from the sales, I have been crushing on this hot pink Free People Dress for a few Weeks and I think I just need to buy it! I am also loving the Tkees lace up sandals…I have a similar pair from Splendid that I bought a few years ago, but am in need of an update. If you are a Corkcicle fan, this confetti canteen is on sale at Nordstrom right now and is perfect for keeping your beverages cool in the summer heat. And last but not least, I have been using a sample of the Sisley Black Rose cream that I got a while ago for the past two weeks and I have seen a real difference in the firmness of my skin, it is a little pricey, but if you’re looking for a fabulous night cream like I have been, I would highly recommend this one!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Friday, loves! This week I am at the beach and am sharing a few of my favorite items that I have been loving on our trip! We are in Watercolor, Florida and there are so many beautiful shades of green and blue here and that color palette has inspired most of my looks this week.

1. Straw Hat 2. Tie-dye headband 3. Rosé Earrings 4. Straw Bucket Bag 5. White Kaftan 6. SeaSalt Hairspray 7. Mint Green Workout Set 8. Scalloped Bed Sheets 9. Veuve Rosé Recycled Candle 10. Mi Golondrina Top 11. Peacock Float 12. Tan Jelly Sandals

I have been wearing this Eugenia Kim Mirabel Hat every day on our trip and I am SO in love with it. I have wanted one of these hats for years, but just couldn’t bring myself to pay the full-price. Luckily, I was online the other day and got an alert that this beautiful hat with a mint ribbon was on sale so I jumped on it! I do love a good deal so while I was checking out, I googled “Eugenia Kim coupons” and a 20 percent off coupon popped up that actually worked so I got an additional 20 percent off of the already discounted price. I recommend doing this when you are shopping online because so many stores have extra coupons available and you can save yourself a lot of money.

I paired the hat with the Uber-popular Lyocell Caftan from H&M. I got this caftan on sale a couple of weeks ago for $17.99 and I am just blown away with how elegant and high-quality it is. I have also been wearing the Pamela Munson straw bucket bag non-stop and have gotten so many compliments. It is the perfect summer bag and it actually holds quite a few items.

Having fun at the pool with the peacock float and the J.crew tie-dye headband!

If you are looking for a fun and affordable pool float for the summer, look no further than this incredible peacock! We brought it to the beach and have had so much fun with it. It did take a while to blow up and I would highly recommend using a pump, but it is do-able to blow it up by yourself.

What are you loving for the beach this summer? Leave me a comment and let me know!
