Parisian for the Day

This past weekend I met up with blogger babe, Britt (from Hello Honey Blog),in City Centre for brunch and window shopping. Ever since I studied abroad in Paris during college I have a serious love for crepes. Savory crepes, sweet crepes, breakfast crepes, dinner crepes… you name it, I’ll eat ’em all! If you follow me on snapchat I’m sure you have seen a crepe or 2.. or 100. I make and eat them all of the time! Britt had never been to Sweet Paris so we indulged in some delicious crepes before exploring.


I enjoyed the roasted turkey, brie and grape savory crepe with a nutella hot chocolate while Britt had the S’mores sweet crepe and a latte. The pictures don’t do this place justice! If you haven’t been they have 2 locations in Houston- Rice Village and City Centre.

My outfit felt just as Parisian as our crepes with a simple black and white dress and a pop of color added in with my hat and clutch. The fashion colors in Europe are a lot more muted than in America. Everybody wears very neutral colors consisting of blacks, whites and grays for the most part. I honestly wouldn’t fit in over there because adding in color to my outfits is my favorite!

I picked up this dress last week at a Dillard’s outlet (originally $140 but on sale for only $19!) and unfortunately they are now sold out online, but I have linked a very similar one. I am very petite (5’4”) so finding a flattering dress can be a difficult task. This fit and flare look is perfect for all body types since it accentuates curves up top, a tiny waste, and elongates your legs. For an added bonus this dress has the vertical lines on it which further elongate your legs and slim the stomach area. So all in all the fit and flare trend is a win-win all around! If you are wanting to try out this super flattering dress trend here are a few more super cute options- hereherehere, and here.






Something Blue.

Happy Monday everyone and hope you all had a great weekend! I got to have a pretty relaxing weekend which consisted of lots of movies, played with my new camera, had a brunch date with Britt (from Hello Honey blog), and visited my parents. All in all it was a much needed break from what seems like such a busy last few weeks.


For Christmas my mom gave me the most beautiful blue coat that I have ever laid eyes on. I am a sucker for anything blue because it is such a fun, bright color and makes those blue eyes pop! O and speaking of mama I get my love for fashion from her, and budget fashion at that. We call her the Queen of Ross and Marshalls! So you can see where my Marshalls/Tj Maxx obsession comes from. I will have to feature her on the blog here pretty soon so you all can see the cutest mama around!


On black Friday I scored some amazing Loft finds including this dress with it’s darling beaded collar. Have you ever heard it’s all in the details? This dress sure got the memo! With details that stand out like that, I like to down play my accessories. I went with some iridescent earrings and ring that don’t overpower the detailing on the dress.

This dress is so modest, yet so chic and high fashion. You could easily transition this outfit from day to night. I have worn this dress to work, to holiday events, and would most definitely wear it out to dinner. To say it is a versatile look would be pretty accurate! The booties that I am wearing I scored earlier in the season for $20 at Ross but I have linked a similar pair.

Before ending today’s post I’d like to share with you guys that I hit a milestone this weekend-1,000 followers on Instagram!! It may not sound like much but it was my goal to get one thousand followers by the time I hit my 3 month mark and I met that goal 2 weeks early. So I wanted to say thank you to all of you and that I plan on celebrating all of these little milestones because the small things matter! I didn’t know if launching the blog would go anywhere and you all are showing me that I might actually know what I am talking about. Thank you for following along on this crazy journey with me and letting me share my love for fashion with you guys!







Blazer & Denim.

There is something about mixing fashion trends and changing it up from the norm that gets me excited! When I saw this blazer and it’s cute elbow patches I knew it would find the perfect home in my closet! Funny how when you know, you just know right?! 🙂 I wanted to dress down the blazer and try a simple pair of nice, denim jeans with it and then top off the look with some statement heels.


You can easily find me wearing this look to work on casual Fridays, to a lunch meeting, church, or a happy hour event. This look is so versatile since it’s very conservative, yet just the right mix of “boss lady” and casual.




I’m not ashamed to say that these earrings have been on CONSTANT repeat. Maroon is such a great fall/winter staple color that I wear non-stop. If you have been wanting some Kendra Scott earrings, I highly suggest this beautiful maroon pair!


If the houndstooth pattern didn’t sell me already, the elbow patches were a shoo-in. All I can say is if you do not own a single piece of clothing with elbow patches on it you are wrong! They add a vintage appeal to your clothing that makes it easy to dress up or dress down any outfit.

My jeans, shirt and blazer all came from Marshalls but I have linked the same or similar options for you. Happy humpday loves and hopefully this post inspires you to try this trend of pairing a blazer with your every day jeans. I personally think it makes for a very modern day boss lady, what do y’all think?!

Sweater Dress & India Hicks Giveaway

Be sure to read all the way to the bottom of this post since there is a giveaway for one special follower! I was lucky enough to partner with India Hicks, a premier lifestyle brand that sells beauty and fashion products. After receiving this amazing clutch I had to pair it with something as high end as it made me feel, which meant bringing out my new booties for the occasion.


This sweater dress is the perfect blend of sexy and comfortable. It is also great because I can wear it to work or a night out by simply changing my shoes and accessories.



Every girl deserves at least one pair of gorgeous sunglasses. Normally I only buy cheap sunglasses since I am the queen of losing or dropping them, but I let myself splurge on this gorgeous pair and I haven’t regretted it once!



This gorgeous India Hick’s Carmen Clutch could not be more perfect! As soon as I got it in the mail I fell in love. It is perfect for date nights, dinner with the girls, or any outfit that you are looking to make a statement in! My wallet, cell phone, and lipstick (because you should never be without it!) all fit in the clutch with plenty of room to spare so it is a great size.



Well guys I splurged again but they were totally worth it. These booties are currently on sale and are definitely one of the most comfortable pair of shoes that I have put on my feet. And I don’t even think I need to mention how cute they are 🙂 I’ll let the pictures do the talking!

Happy hump day everyone! I can’t believe we are already in our second week of the New Year! Anyone else already struggling to stay on track with those New Year’s resolutions? I have yet to start my biggest one, using my planner! My sister gave me the cutest one for Christmas and I have been studying it, planning how I am going to attack using it, and trying to organize everything I already have planned for the year. But I haven’t actually written a single thing down yet. It sounds insane I know! It’s almost too pretty to write in… just almost.


This outfit was inspired by a trend that I had seen pop up and was dying to try- blanket scarf turned vest! I find it funny that last season I had all of these blanket scarves but really didn’t wear them because I didn’t know how. Now this season there are a million in one ways to wear them so I have had fun pulling them all out of the back of my closet and giving them a second shot. Purple is hands down my favorite color and for some crazy reason it does not exist in my wardrobe! Since winter makes it a little more difficult to add color in to your outfit, being that you don’t have all of the bright options that summer brings, I try to add pops of color whenever I can. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE a good winter neutrals look and you can find me wearing this sweater dress, leggings and boots combo all day everyday, but adding color just brightens up an outfit.

This easy make shift scarf vest is the easiest to pull off. If you already have a scarf simply hang it around your neck and belt it around your stomach. I used a pretty small belt so that it would create the cinched look i was going for. Also my scarf was a pretty big size so i folded it in half length wise before draping around my neck.







Can we talk about these boots for a minute?! If a pair of shoes has ever made me feel like a million bucks, these are them! They look so sleek and chic! Now if only I had thought to buy them in every color 😉
