Holiday Outfit Inspo

Holiday Outfit Inspo

Whether you’re celebrating Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa or something else, the holidays are upon us! Because different families and types of celebrations call for different styles of clothing, I’m sharing some of my favorite looks for this holiday season from tacky to snazzy and everything in between.

Snazzy: Lavender Bedazzled Sweater, Spanx Leggings, Black Manolos Classic: Bow Blouse, Black Sweater, Plaid Pants, Black Manolos Casual: Grey and Blue Sweater, Skinny Jeans, Tan Boots Festive: Tacky Christmas Sweater, Red and White Striped PJ Pants, Silver Sneakers

For this snazzy holiday look, I went a little bit out of my comfort zone. Of course if you’ve been following me for a bit, you will have seen this sweater a few times, but I think it is ideal for the holidays. I also live in my black Manolo Blahniks–they are an investment, but some of the best money you can spend. I bought this pair six years ago and wear they all the time. Outside of these staples for me, these Spanx leggings y’all… definitely not something I would normally ever buy or wear, but I kept seeing them everywhere so I had to give them a shot. While they are a bit loud for me…literally and metaphorically, they are incredibly flattering and SO comfortable to wear! If you’re feeling like looking a little bold at your holiday celebration, I would definitely recommend these.

Now this look is a little bit more my speed and one of my favorite holiday looks I’ve ever put together! I wore this a few years ago for Christmas in New Orleans with my husband’s family. I wore this to our Christmas Eve luncheon at Arnaud’s and it was the perfect combo for such a traditional setting. Luckily, the pants, shoes and sweater I wore are still in stock, but the Theory Bow Blouse is sadly out of stock. I found a replacement and I think it would still make the look incredible.

Festive: Tacky Christmas Sweater, Red and White Striped PJ Pants, Silver Sneakers

And now for the fun stuff!! I live for tacky Christmas parties and I’m so thankful we are having a family tacky Christmas sweater party this year for Christmas Eve. Inspired by a tacky candy cane, I put this look together last year and could not have been happier with it! For the tacky Christmas party I attended last year, I wore this amazing Christmas tree looking sweater and Rachel Parcell pajama pants. They are no longer available, but I found a similar pair at Target that are so cute! Pair this with a sparkly pair of sneakers and you will be ready for a good time!

How are you celebrating the holidays this year? Leave me a comment and let me know!

Save v. Splurge: Fall Coats

Save v. Splurge: Fall Coats

Fall weather has officially arrived here in Austin and I am breaking out my coats! I’ve rounded up four of my favorite coat styles at save and splurge prices to keep you warm and fashionable all season.

I absolutely love this green Barbour Jacket from Nordstrom and it is currently on sale!! I recommend this jacket for everyday wear, running errands or when you’re doing something outdoors. If you’re looking for an even better deal, check out this green jacket from Amazon. It is a cult favorite and looks good on any body shape or size.

1. Save: Green Active Jacket 2. Splurge: Green Active Jacket 3. Save: Black Wrap Coat 4. Splurge: Black Wrap Coat 5. Save: Tan Wrap Coat 6. Splurge: Tan Wrap Coat 7. Save: Teddy Coat 8. Splurge: Teddy Coat

Last year I bought my first Rachel Parcell Coat from Nordstrom and I can not say enough good things about it! First of all, the price is amazing…I think I got mine for around $250, but it truly looks like a Max Mara or Sentaler Coat for a fraction of the cost. I wore this coat to formal events and to work last year and I’m really looking forward to wearing it again this year. I haven’t been able to find the Rachel Parcell coats at Nordstrom this year, but I’m hoping they are up soon!

Wearing the Rachel Parcell Black Wrap Coat here on New Year’s Eve.

Tan wrap coats and teddy coats are also essentials for the fall and I have never seen a wrap coat for under $60!! Hurry up and grab one before they sell out! This style from H&M comes in a beige, tan and black.

Are you wearing coats yet?! Leave me a comment and let me know your favorite fall styles below!

WFH Style

WFH Style

Working from home–or WFH as it has been coined, once a situation many dreamed of, now seems here to stay. As the coronavirus pandemic drags on, in-person meetings have been swapped for zoom meetings, and a new genre of clothing has emerged…Work From Home Style. Luckily, comfort is key in the WFH trend and pairing comfortable pieces with laidback sophisticated pieces will have you looking on point for your all of your virtual appointments.

Working from home is a major adjustment and while many of us thought it would be a temporary situation, we are now six months in. At this point, we just need to embrace our new normal and be thankful for the time we’re saving each day getting ready. Although working from home is more relaxed than your look needs to be in the office, there is still an unspoken dress code… or at least there should be. By mixing sophisticated pieces with casual loungewear, you can achieve a polished work-from-home look. From easy t-shirt dresses to work-appropriate leggings, I will show you five looks that will be great for Zoom calls and keep you comfortable for the whole day.

Brit’s Tips for Working from Home Comfortably:

  1. Comfort is key
  2. Mix easy pieces with a polished top or blazer
  3. Amplify your look with accessories from the waist up
  4. Save your skin and do a minimal version of your usual makeup
Heather Grey Juliette Collarless Blazer, Emerald Cut Earrings, White T-shirt, Black Sports Bra, Black Scalloped Leggings, Fluffy Black Slides
White Knotted Shirt Dress, Classic White Superga Platform Tennis Shoes, Sweet Sentiments Positivity Bracelets, Silver Hoop Earrings
Grey Luxe Lounge Set, Gold Hoop Earrings, Pashmina Wrap, Golden Goose Sneakers
Lap of Luxury Cream Knit Set, Fluffy Slide Slipper, Missoni Striped Headband, Nicola Bathie Golden Flower and Pearl Earrings, Karen Walker Philo Round Blue Light Glasses
Black Knotted Headband, Jennifer Zeuner Jewelry Margaux Extra-Small Hoop Earring, Black Belted Sweater Dress, Tkees Black Leather Slides

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!

Happy Friday, loves!! I am so excited about this long weekend and finally having a chance to hangout and relax with my husband and friends.

I have been living in this Ro’s Garden cover up this summer and I’m wearing it here with my favorite Trina Turk “Spicy” Clutch. I ordered it in a size small and love the loose fit…it is perfect to wear for a long day on the beach or the boat. It is one of those dresses that you can easily throw on to run in to grab lunch or comfortably wear on the beach all day because of its light-weight and breezy fabric. I also love the red and pink flowers on it– you could even wear it for the Fourth of July tomorrow with a blue swimsuit. I wore it here with my favorite tan slides, but how cute would it be with the Melissa heart pool sandals?! And of course no summer outfit is complete without a pair of sunglasses and my current favorites are these Gucci lookalike sunnies from Amazon…I swear you cannot tell the difference from the real ones, but they are only $12.99!! These do sell out quickly so be sure to grab yours soon!

1. Gucci Lookalike sunnies 2. Ganni Polka Dot Midi Dress 3. Hermes Face Mask 4. Staud Maxi Dress 5. Juicytube–Spring Fling 6. Spiritual Gangster Tee 7. Prada Slides 8. Ro’s Garden Caroline Cover up 9. Alo Biker Shorts 10. Slip Sleep Mist 11. J.Crew Cotton Pajamas 12. Melissa Heart Pool Sandals

Face masks have become this summer’s hottest accessory and how chic are these Hermes masks?! In addition to being uber-stylish in these masks, the proceeds from the masks are donated towards the purchase of diabetic alert service dogs for children and teens. If you’re looking for a little glam under your face mask, my favorite lip gloss from middle school is back! Lancome’s Juicy Tubes are back!! My favorite shade is SringFling…it’s the perfect dewey pink gloss!

Saks Fifth Avenue has some of the cutest new dresses in for summer and I am drooling over them!! The white Staud maxi dress with multi-colored lining is such a perfect dress, whether you’re staying at home or going to brunch with your friends. I am also in love with this new Ganni polka dot dress. Both dresses would pair perfectly with Prada’s Raffia slide sandals.

Ever since I’ve started going back to the gym after quarantine, I’ve changed my workout style. I have been loving oversized Spiritual Gangster tee shirts (the SOFTEST!! material) and pairing them with biker shorts which I never thought I’d say!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had trouble sleeping the past few nights. The J.crew cotton pajamas are my absolute favorite–they are breathable and light, but offer coverage, which is perfect for summer in Texas. They are also 50 percent off right now with the code GOFOURTH. I’m hoping new pajamas and the chamomile sleep mist from Slip will help me get back into a regular sleep schedule soon.

I hope you all have a safe and healthy Fourth of July and enjoy all of my picks this week!

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!
