The Classics

What did I do before flares? No but really. What in the heck did I do before flares were back in style? Oh right, I squeezed myself into skinny jeans like everyone else and threw comfort out the window. To say I'm slightly obsessed with the style is an understatement; I wore them over the weekend and practically sold the pair right off my body to a fellow dinner party companion. So this spring, I’m challenging ...

Having A Carrie Moment

It’s hard to believe but I have officially lived in New York for longer than I care to admit, time has flown since I left Texas exactly eight years ago today {what???} and I without a doubt would not change one thing about the path I have chosen. New York is home to me, sure my family and a number of dear friends still live back in Texas, which will always have a special place ...

Taking My Poolside Game Up A Notch

Pooltime hits a special level of chicness when one is traveling don't you think? Especially when you're staying at a spa B&B. It's no longer just acceptable to toss on cut-offs and trust me as a person that owns upwards of 8 pairs that's pretty difficult to do. But I personally love to take it up a notch from time to time. Not to mention I love the retro vibe that a high-waisted suit gives off ...

Southern Gal Needs: Love, Music & Whiskey

Being a Texas gal, I've somehow managed to find myself surrounded by other southern ladies and will never complain about that ever. Aside from genuinely being kick ass friends we all know the three things that can turn any good or bad day into an ridiculously good one ... love, music and/or whiskey. {Though if you ask me it should be in the reverse order!} Call it the Southern gals cure-all but the power of those ...

RED HOT SUMMER

When July rolls around we’re all pretty much in an elated casual summer style mindset but then the relentless July heat hits and all of the sudden it’s a whole new fashion game.  You don’t want to look like a drowned rat, you want to still look like your stylish self and as much as we’d all love for a bikini to be suitable daily attire during the summer it just isn’t. {Unless of course ...

Currently Coveting: Emerson Fry Spring Collection

There is a tiny glimmer of hope that spring is trying it’s hardest to break through here in NYC. The fact that it was above freezing today and didn’t have to wear ski socks in my snow boots was a refreshing feeling. So much so that I've allowed myself to day dream a little about what my spring wardrobe will actually be and I have to say I’m loving the clean, casual cool, sleek spring ...

NYE Style & Beauty: Glitz & Glam

With the holidays officially behind us, we turn our focus to celebrate the year that was a ring in the new year! What better way to ring it in than rocking a little leather ensemble glammed up with some serious baubles and just the right amount of glitter?! I knew when I picked out this black leather outfit I could really go bold with my make up. Enter in the talented Stephanie Nelson who worked ...
