This. Dress. Right. Here.
I dragged my dad to Southern Hippie with me during Dad's weekend for my sorority, per the request of my roommate. She worked at the store and I was pretty much in love with her entire closet, so I thought I would go for a little shopping spree!
This dress is by The Jetset Diaries, a bohemian brand that has tons of unique pieces. I've never purchased any of their stuff before, but I'm happy with my first dress. I had to get the sleeves tailored just a bit shorter (they were SO long I could barely use my hands!) but I love that the back is just a bit lower than the front and how just tossing it on makes me feel super chic. There are so many small details on the dress as well -- you can tell that it's well made and lots of thought went into the design. Read More
Life isn't all free hotel stays and cocktails at nine in the morning, but sometimes you get lucky.
hen my boss invited me to a styled shoot for Austin Woman Magazine, my answer was a clear yes! I felt like I was living the life... Sans the moment when I tried to check into the W before realizing I was at the wrong hotel. Read More
I had a teacher in high school who was always telling us to dress well if we wanted to do well.
She was talking about taking the English AP test, but I took the advice to heart and have made it an integral part of the way I think about style. There are days where my lengthy to-do list nearly keeps me from getting out of bed, and I feel like I can barely look in the mirror let alone pick out a killer outfit for the day. That's probably why I wear black and white so often -- it's easy to mix and match my pieces on the roughest of days.
Below are two of my all-time favorite, go-to pieces to wear to the office or out on the town... Or BOTH! These pieces can transition seamlessly from the duties of the day to happy hour, and I'm now renting them out on Garment Exchange so you can try them out for yourself! Read More
