Girlboss Red Suit

Since this week is full of Valentine’s Day inspiration and outfit ideas, it only seemed fitting to show off the most beloved suit I’ve ever owned. Yes, I only own 3 suits but that is besides the point. I bought this red suit on a complete whim because I saw it and immediately fell in love with it’s pink trim and bold features. It screamed #girlboss and I couldn’t say no! I firmly believe that every girl deserves to have at least one outfit that makes her feel like a down right boss. An outfit that simply exudes confidence, power and beauty. This red suit stands out and is definitely against the norm, every reason why I loved it.

So all of that is to say that I have waited an entire year to wear this suit and I am so glad that I get to finally show it off to you guys! When I bought it I had absolutely no idea where I would ever get an opportunity to wear it. Valentines Day I thought? Maybe Christmas? “You shouldn’t buy an outfit to just wear one day a year” I thought to myself. Then my mother chimed in “It’s 65% off.. you have to get it”. And just like that I was SOLD. Gotta love mom’s sound of reason…

The great part about buying a suit is that you don’t have to wear the suit jacket and skirt (or pants) together. So while buying a suit is normally quite the investment, you really do get a lot of use out of each piece. I wear this pencil skirt with more casual tops to work all of the time! The blazer makes for a cute pop of color to other outfits as well. So I may have bought this suit on a whim but I can assure you that it has had it’s fair wearing!

Stay tuned for more Valentine’s Day inspired looks every day this week. Do y’all have any exciting plans for the big day? Whether it’s galentines or something special with your significant other, I hope you have a lovely day 🙂 I’m excited to spend my 3 day weekend binge eating chocolate and probably watching the Notebook. It’s a pretty strong possibility and there is no shame in my game!

Faux Real

Houston sure did see some beautiful weather this past weekend and I soaked up every bit of it that I could! I spent my weekend with my best girl friends eating some good food, checking out Karbach Brewery’s new renovation, and celebrating Margret’s (from Style The Girl) soon-to-be bundle of joy. How did you spend your weekend? I would love to hear!

This look was created from a lot of old pieces that I had in my closet and my new pair of over-the-knee boots that I recently picked up from my neighborhood Marshalls. The faux fur trend has stuck around and if you don’t already own a faux fur vest in every color (I’m definitely guilty of this), then I would highly recommend getting one that has mainly blacks and browns in it. I love that I can wear it with black or brown shoes!

My birthday was last month so I used my 50% off birthday discount to get this beautiful Kendra Scott ring. If you didn’t see my previous post with all of your birthday month specials, you can check it out here.

  Dress (similar) // Vest (similar splurge) // Boots // Watch // Ring

With Houston’s weather being so bipolar this vest is an easy go-to piece for me because it keeps me warm in the morning when it’s cooler but is not too hot for when it warms up a bit. I linked a splurge option but here is a cheaper option that I still love. Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by 🙂

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!

 Dress (similar) // Boots (on sale) // Hat // Clutch (different color) // Earrings // Sunglasses

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.

Blazer (similar) // Shirt // Jeans // Heels (similar) // Earrings

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?!
