All Grey Errrthing



Just a quick pop-in to say hello!

I've been finding myself drawn to greys and neutrals lately - sometimes subtle color makes a big statement! I love a good monotoned look - so this 50 shades of grey look is kind of a no brainer for me! Not to mention it encompasses all things I love right now - mixed patterns, vests, studs, florals...I mean...easy breeziness. I paired it with some flat booties for work and an easy heel for the after hours!

Happy Thursday!

Pink



Naturally I got all done up one night for a date and saw a quick moment to grab a few outfit pics, but my camera decided not to cooperate. So a trusty iPhone is all I had. I snagged this cropped top and skirt several months ago on sale and they're two of my favorite pieces. Sometimes it's fun to feel girly in a full, flowy, tea-length skirt, amIright? 

The cropped top trend kind of weirds me out, but I think it can be done so tastefully when paired with something to distract from the fact that your midsection is peeking through. It's kind of like the new age Hollister tube top. Remember when that was cool? Short, cotton tube tops? Yikes.

Since the skirt is SO stinking pink, I just paired it with some black and white accessories and called it a night. Along with my go-to turquoise statement necklace.

Happy Monday!!

Gameday Inspiration: The glam and girly girl



For the gals that love to dress up for these events - there's a way to look glam and still be comfy while cheering on your favorite team! Go with a flowy dress or romper in a fun print like stripes or polka dots. Don't be afraid of rocking that bold color! Accessorize with pops of another color to incorporate all of your team spirit in the look. As you can see below, I love a great leopard print paired with some polka dots! It's a brave mix of patterns - but it ALWAYS works! If you're someone that wants to wear a cute heel too, go with a simple wedge or espadrille for comfort while you're on your feet all game!

College Game Day Inspiration: The Sporty Girl




Football season is back, y'all! Yippeeee! It's quite arguably THE most fun time of the year down here in Tejas. It's one of three seasons we have here, actually. There's non-patio season, patio season and then football season. We even get really lucky during the times when patio season and football season intertwine. It's like the stars align and all is right in the world.

I've had so many questions about gameday attire - so I thought I'd share a few ideas on how to rock some team spirit in your wardrobe this fall! For today's look, I'm targeting the laid-back, I wanna be comfortable AND cute type gal. Someone that's sporty and casual, yet wants to pull together a look that she's not afraid to wear around town after the game! For me, sneakers have become my best friend. You can wear them with anything and they can pull together any outfit for any occasion. I also find it's fun to incorporate my school colors in different ways. For example, instead of wearing a bold color in your top, try rocking it in other areas - like a bright short or a baseball cap. It's easy to find a neutral top to throw over your bold pops of color in your shorts or accessories! Keep the jewels to a minimum and don't be afraid to dress down. After all it IS a football game, and sometimes simple and cute is the best way to go at events like this! Stay tuned for more gameday attire inspiration coming this week!
