Skinny Jeans are apparently out so I needed to look to some other styles for inspiration this spring. Although I’ve loved skinny jeans for more than a decade, I have to agree with my Gen Z friends that there are more flattering styles out there. From Straight leg to mini boot cut, I’m breaking down my five favorite styles for you to try in the denim world this season.
Last year, I fell in love with the Levi 501 jeans that everyone raves about. I’ve also branched out or back to loving flare jeans…I think Veronica Beard does them perfectly and you can get this spring wash for under $100! Mango makes really good jeans too. The washes are a little funky, but for $50 a pair, I think it’s ok to experiment a little.
Are you still wearing skinny jeans or have you too branched out with your denim style?! Leave me a comment and let me know!
St. Patrick’s Day is one week away! You might not know this about me, but I am mostly Irish and was almost born on St. Patrick’s Day so to say I love the holiday is a bit of an understatement.
I have Irish blood from both sides of my family and my mom’s parents were pretty well known for their annual St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. Obviously celebrations this year won’t be too over the top, but as we begin to emerge from COVID-19 quarantine, it is nice to have a happy holiday to look forward to. When I celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, I usually like to wear a cute green top with white jeans and add some silly accessories to complete my look. Whether you celebrate next Wednesday or over the upcoming weekend, I’m sharing my favorite styles that will make you look like you are Irish too.

Can you all believe Thanksgiving is this week?! I can’t quite wrap my mind around it, but it’s here so I’ve started my outfit planning. As most of you know, our pup Charlie fractured his leg last week and had to have surgery so I’ve decided to stay in Texas for Thanksgiving rather than traveling with him to see my family. I’m so bummed I won’t get to see them, but I think we will have a fun little holiday at home!
Because this year has been so crazy, I feel like there aren’t any rules when it comes to holiday dressing. Some people are celebrating virtually or having micro celebrations in person. Depending on what your Thanksgiving crew is like, you might be keeping it casual this year, dressing up or something in between.
I’m guessing for most of us that comfort is key this year. I plan on wearing this outfit for the first part of the day while I’m prepping dinner and the house. I recently bought this amazing tie dye sweatshirt from Pilot and Powell in New Orleans and am totally obsessed with it! I’m pairing it with my favorite cropped Frame jeans and tan mules for an effortless, comfortable look.
I think we all know this by now, but this Sister Jane dress is my favorite dress I’ve bought this fall and I plan to wear it for dinner on Thanksgiving day. It is currently on sale so hurry up and grab yourself one! I love the plaid and green for Thanksgiving because it makes me feel festive and homey. I love pairing this dress with cowgirl boots to get some modern prairie vibes.
If you’re in a warmish climate like me and want to be dressy and comfortable, look no further than this ADORABLE kitten dress from Ganni! I also picked up this dress at Pilot and Powell and know that it will be something I wear on repeat. I’m wearing it here with a tan waist belt and tan slides for and effortlessly chic look.
If you are getting dressed up this Thanksgiving, I would suggest keeping things classic. One of my go-to classic looks for the holidays is throwing on my leather leggings, an oversized white button down, black Manolos and adding a hair bow for good measure. This look is so timeless and will be sure to wow the family and look great in photos!

Happy first Friday of the fall, y’all! We had a brief moment of sweater weather here in Austin and it was amazing! I’m not usually this excited about the beginning of fall, but this year, there is something so wonderful about it and I can’t wait to break out my sweaters, boots and jackets!
This week, I’m easing into my fall fashions with neutrals. These pieces can really work year-round, but put together, they work perfectly for the early weeks of fall. For my first manicure of the fall, I’ve already brought back my go-to color, Don’t Bossa Nova me Around by OPI, this white-beige polish is a beautiful neutral and it looks gorgeous on a multitude of skin tones.
Something I love about this time of year is that you can still wear dresses or jeans and a tee and just throw on a sweater to stay warm. I’m loving these sweater dresses from Zara and Nanushka and think they would be beautiful with ballet flats, tennis shoes, sandals or even a pair of boots depending on where you are in the world.
Labor Day is the definitive sign that summer is coming to a close. Although I don’t particularly subscribe to the belief that you can’t wear white after Labor Day, I do believe it’s a time to start transitioning your wardrobe.
I’m loving these pieces because they are good any time of year (especially in Texas) and can help you transition from Summer to Fall seamlessly.
I hope you have the best Labor Day Weekend and wear your white jeans and dresses as much as you can!
I am so excited the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has officially begun!! It is one of my favorite sales of the year because instead of marking down items that aren’t selling well, the anniversary sale offers up to 40 percent off of new items and some of the top items and brands sold at Nordstrom that do not regularly go on sale.
This is a great time to stock up on beauty products, holiday gifts and essentials. I am also excited this year to shop for Fall clothes because I finally live in a city where it gets a little chilly!! I’ve divided all of my picks into six different categories for easy browsing and I hope you love them as much as I do!!
Although this Anniversary Sale is a bit smaller than in other years, I do think there are some great items. I hope you love all my picks as much as I do and Happy Shopping, my friends!!
