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 ...

Country Cool

I'm often inspired by my surroundings when pulling together so it's really no surprise that when I was back in Texas I put my own little spin on some western inspired pieces. This Hazel dress is gauzy perfection, especially when you're battling the Texas heat {hello 105!} and there is something to be said for a well made pair of cowboy boots. While I'm not rocking these Old Gringo's on a daily basis in NYC, I do ...

A Floral Love Affair

Let's be realistic here, love is a strong word, we toss it around like it means nothing at all most times. I'm guilty of saying it for a majority of the items that I own, however, this French Connection dress was love. It was love at first sight. I literally almost bought it off the girl that was wearing it at the store because they didn't know if they had my size. Luckily, I didn't have to ...

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 ...

Taking It to Great Lengths

Once spring and summer roll around I tend to ditch my jeans or any pants for that matter, for more weather friendly articles of clothing (i.e. shorts, rompers, dresses and skirts) - the main reason for this you ask? Well, it boils down to the brutal fact that I’m in them for far too long during the winter. Yes I know I’ll freeze at the office or at dinner but that’s a risk I’m willing ...
