Back to Basics

When in doubt, stick to basics. On a recent post by Allure magazine, they claimed that Lauren Conrad was a “basic (fill in the blank here)”. Although some may see that as a complete insult, I’d like to think that when it comes to her clothing line, basic is a complimentary adjective. I love that her pieces are easy to wear, day or night, and add just the right amount of simplicity.

BF

When in doubt, wear men’s clothing…well kind of. At first I was a skeptic of boyfriend jeans, thinking that I was far to short to pull them off. The mere thought of myself in boyfriend jeans made me feel like a Oompa Loompa wearing a burlap sack. Baggy and not flattering at all. Little did I know that my assumption was a severe misconception. 

While on a “necessities only” trip to Target (like that ever happens) I decided to do some browsing. I came across some boyfriend jeans that were just the right color to spark some curiosity in me to try them on. The second I had them on I fell in love. So insanely comfy, and not the attire of an Oompa Loopma at all!

Just a Touch

Monday is usually voted as everyone’s least favorite day of the week. Back to work, back to school, and fighting off that Monday blues that comes with the passing of the weekend. My best solution to combat all these downers, to dress like it’s your first Monday on the job. Feeling great about how you look on the outside will greatly effect what your’re feeling on the inside.

I decided to pair a light and airy blouse that has a vibrant print with two solids. The white blazer compliments the print perfectly, making it stand out yet polished enough for the office.

…Stays in Vegas

All good things must come to an end. As much as I hated to say goodbye to Vegas and end my vacation, I must say it was nice to come home and sleep in my own bed. Our last day in Vegas was definitely a busy one. We decided to take a trip down memory lane, and take a look at the history of how Vegas was really created. First stop was the The Mob Museum, a great place located in downtown Las Vegas.

A trip to Vegas is not complete until you can walk the strip with a drink that is nearly the same size as you.

Hitting the Streets of Sin City

Why is it that whenever we come back from vacation, it feels like we still need days off to recover? I have been fighting to get back on a normal sleeping schedule, and let’s just say I am not having as much luck as I did in Vegas

While I was there, I had a few “musts” that were on my to do list, and of course shopping was one of them. As we all know, Vegas weather is the equivalent of walking into an oven, so I wanted to wear something that was light enough for their summer heat. I decided to pair a blue crop tank with some high waist shorts, that gave me just enough color and comfort. I absolutely love that jelly shoes have made a comeback and I think they are the perfect summer shoe!

I absolutely loved spending some quality time (and doing some quality shopping) with my beautiful mother. Here is a closer look at the lipstick, D’Liliac, that I cannot stop obsessing over from Lime Crime.  

More coming soon! <3

 

What Happens in Vegas….

What is summer with out a little vacation? Well I checked that off my list this past weekend. A few close family members and I flew down to Vegas for the fourth of July weekend, and did some much needed R&R.

As we know, finding an outfit to travel in isn’t always the easiest thing to do. I opted for an all white outfit that was both comfortable enough to sit through a flight in, and easy to hit the strip and sight see right after.Paired with a platform sandal to add the extra height, I was ready to go!

Until next time <3

Game Day Ready

First off, let me just say that this Texas heat is no joke. Within the past couple of weeks we’ve been hitting triple digit heat and all I want to do is lounge by a pool. So, with that being said I would just like to say sorry for the lack of posts, but it’s a little hard to think of what to wear when you literally feel like you are melting. 

As we all know the World Cup has been on going this past week, and yesterday I went out to watch the U.S. play against Portugal. Nothing goes better with soccer than some tacos and beer, so we stopped by this great local restaurant called Little Shack. Oyster shots, micheladas, tacos adobadas, let’s just say I was in heaven.

I wanted to wear something that I could enjoy my Sunday Funday in so I decided to break out some great pieces that I got from the Kendall & Kylie Collection for PacSun. Paired with some platform sandals with a hint of neon yellow to add just the pop of color I was looking for.
