Summer Lace & Fall Nights

Enter: The white lace dress. We all had one over the summer, let's be honest. They were a hot item and trend and every girl made it a point to rock the look over the course of the hot months. I think I have two of them. And a skirt. I couldn't get enough....shocker.

Now that the warm months are gone, these little white lace garments are typically deemed a big no-no and stashed away with the bikinis and flip-flops until next summer rolls around.

However, don't shove it to the back of your closet just yet! Lucky for me, and many of you out there, there are ways to hold on to the fab look and transition it in your wardrobe so that you can still wear it during those winter months.

Score, score aaaaand score!

In my case, I have this wonderful long-sleeved backless dress that I adore and am not quite ready to say goodbye to it. So, I brought some fall colors into it. I threw some black opaque tights on underneath and a pair of brown boots. Since it's chilly outside, I also layered it with a more masculine military trend jacket to dress down the girly lace. I love a good mix of girly + masculine pieces.

This is such an easy way to transition your favorite summer dress - lace or not - into the fall/winter months! No sense in breaking the bank for that fall wardrobe when you can use some items you already have!

Red + Camel

I have been stupidly busy lately. I don't know what it is in the water, but I feel like I've been going 90 mph for three weeks.

Whether I'm working, traveling, running errands or going out, my go-to is a slouchy sweater and fun mini. Luckily, it's finally feeling like fall around here so it gives me another excuse to throw on some leggings and comfy boots to keep my gams warm.

This is one of my favorite color combinations - something about it is crisp and classic. If a bright red knit sweater isn't in your collection, I highly recommend you make it a point to add it. It can be styled so many ways and is a staple for the holiday season in my wardrobe! The same goes for a wool camel skirt or peacoat - it's timeless!

I also love a good leopard printed piece for looks like this because it's a great way to bring together those browns, tans and blacks in your outfit!

Full Tilt Austin

OK. Here's the dealio. As some of you may or may not know, the first Formula 1 US Grand Prix track is opening its doors and tracks on November 16. What's cool about this you say? Well, this monster of a track/venue is located right here in good ole Austin, Texas, so it's a HUGE weekend in ATX. The city is expecting 300,000+ international visitors in town for opening weekend! It's craaaazy. And probably going to be a nightmare for locals trying to go about their daily lives. But it'll be an exciting one. 

In honor of the F1 kickoff, there are several events around town to provide VIP entertainment for those venturing to Tejas for a little European flair. 

One of these events is the Full Tilt Fashion Show and yours truly is assisting an amazing local stylist in styling the runways (70+ looks, yikes!) for the world class event!
YAY! So excited. But that's neither here nor there.

The show is happenining at the always amazing W Hotel Austin and is going to be full of gorgeous fashion, glamourous runways, music, lights, drinks, brunch, VIP guests...the whole shebang.

HOW. GREAT. DOES. THAT. SOUND?

I know. You're overwhelmed and can't find tickets fast enough.

Guys, if you're in the Austin area, come check it out! It really is going to be such an amazing event and I'm so beyond thrilled to be apart of it!
