    Summer Uniform: Plaid Shorts + Sweater

    Goodbye jeans and hello shorts! Dallas is notorious for the summer heat and humidity. To deal with it, I usually throw on a swing dress or T-shirt dress. That look has become my go-to. BUT, these plaid shorts are pushing their way into the forefront of my closet and I can’t get enough of them! OUTFIT DETAILS: Shorts (old – similar here) Sweater (here) Shoes (here) Purse (similar here) Necklace (here) Sunglasses (here) Though it’s rather toasty (#understatement) outside, it’s chilly indoors! Texas has really figured out air conditioning, and I’m often cold when I’m inside. This thin sweater is the perfect top to go with my breezy shorts. It pulls together the whole…

    Black + Grey: Why I Always Wear Neutrals

    I divided my closet into two sections: neutrals and colors. Though I love my bright red sweater from this post and my bright green skirt from my video, I can’t get enough neutrals! They’re simple, classic, and easy to wear.      OUTFIT DETAILS: Sweater (similar here) Skirt (love the zipper on this one) Shoes (here) Tote (similar here) Necklace (similar here) This outfit is a great example of why I love my neutrals. On its own, it’s stylish and functional. You can easily add a colorful scarf or patterned bomber for a bold detail. There are countless possibilities for how to style this, all because it’s a blank canvas. It goes without saying that…

    Checkered Shorts

    You know that feeling that comes over you when you see something in the store, and you know that you’re going to walk out with it?! Yeah, me neither… Just kidding! That’s exactly how I felt when I saw these checkered shorts on the rack; I knew they were going to be mine. OUTFIT DETAILS:  Shorts (here – under $20!) Shirt (here) Shoes (here, similar here) Bag (similar here) Earrings (here) Ok, if I’m being honest, I thought they were a skirt when I first saw them.

    A Sweater for Spring

    I love when the weather starts to warm up, but I get kinda sad that I’ll soon put my favorite fall and winter pieces away. Until it completely warms up, I’m going to wear this red sweater as often as possible. It’s bright, oversized, and comfy; what more could you ever ask for in a sweater? OUTFIT DETAILS: Sweater (here) Jeans (here) Shoes (similar here) Sunglasses (here) Watch (similar here) Earrings (here) Why This Sweater Works I immediately loved this sweater when I saw it because it was different than anything I already owned. I typically shy away from something this oversized because of my petite frame. However, the bright red color makes a powerful statement, which tones…
