American Woman




















I'M BACK!!! I know, I know, WTF its been like 6 months- but let me tell you, life has been crazy, and this little blog of mine sadly just got put on the back burner. However, I have gotten so many emails and comments from friends and gals I didn't even know who have followed my blog asking where I went and why I wasn't sharing outfits anymore (seriously guys, it made me so happy when people asked to bring the blog back.To think that anyone would take time out of their day to check out me looking awkward on here and sharing my love of fashion is just beyond crazy to me). While I still have been shopping way too much (did I really just admit that?), styling, and photographing my outfits and snippets of life- I now vow to share everything with you all on here! So CHEERS to that!

Well this little number here is brought to you courtesy of the red, white, and blue (and Toby Keith).  I know most of you don't frolic around in the water in cowboy boots and an American flag on the reg…. however, when my favorite photographer, Kayla came to town and the 4th of July approaching I knew I wanted to do some shots with the US flag and make one of my Pinterest dreams come to life. Check!
Like I said, I know carrying around a flag all day isn't exactly a wardrobe staple, but owning a chambray shirt, denim cutoffs, and a good pair of cowboy boots are-- especially here in Texas. Also if any of you can help bring my Dukes of Hazard fantasy to life, I am on the hunt for some red boots (that aren't tacky high school dance team)  help a sista out.
So, I will end with Happy Birthday America… I am so proud to call this beautiful, free country home.

Wait, just kidding- I have to brag for a bit…. I have the most talented photographer. Not only is she beautiful, funny, and the SWEETEST, she is like a camera magician. Not even kidding. Kayla not only helps me pose looking semi natural (aka- talking me out of doing any sorority pose or skinny arm in every pic), she just flat out has a niche for taking the most beautiful pictures. If anyone in Central Texas or the surrounding areas (Dallas, Austin, etc.) are needing a photographer for anything…. do yourself a favor and check out Kayla Sellers Photography . You are welcome.

Queen of Hearts















Dress: Forever 21| Wedges: Forever 21 | Clutch: Marshalls | Necklace: J. Crew

For those of you that are not familiar with Texas weather, we really don't have "seasons". It is either hot, or kind of cold cold (anything below 60 degrees). So sundresses pretty much make up half of my wardrobe, and I will probably be sporting them for the next month or so. I see so many of my other fellow bloggers embracing this fall weather, pleaseeee Texas, get it together so all of us girls can stop looking crazy trying to wear our fall clothes when it's still 90 outside! 

Thank you sweet Kayla for taking these amazing, amazing pictures! Kayla has been such a great friend and supporter in my blog, thank you so much. Everyone be sure to go check out Kayla Sellers Photography here!

Ladies in Leather



Hi everyone, today I am once again teaming up with one of my favorite ladies, Meredith from Create That Outfit! Today we are showcasing how we style leather for fall, this fall season leather will be EVERYWHERE! Meredith is wearing a black leather romper with some adorable detailed cutouts at the bottom! How cute is that?! I think the cutouts add a fun feminine touch, and as always, to transition an outfit or for a new look just add a blazer. If you check out some of Meredith's other posts, she is the queen of styling blazers with outfits to give them a new look :) Make sure and check out Meredith's full post over at Create That Outfit to see more details!
















Chambray: Forever 21 | Leather Skirt: Forever 21 | Heels: Forever 21 | Necklace: J. Crew | Clutch: Target | Sunnies: Rayban

I styled my leather skirt with my trusty chambray... You will probably see me wearing my chambray shirts at least once a week FYI. I cannot wait to purchase some more leather pieces for fall.... Next on my list is a tan leather top! BTW-- how fabulous is Meredith?! Thank you so much for collaborating with me!

Scallops











Top: J. Crew | Shorts: Dress Up Boutique | Wedges: Shoedazzle | Sunnies: Rayban | Watch: Michael Kors


As much as I wish I could be cozied up in boots and sweaters, Texas is not having this fall weather! Seriously ya'll I have been purchasing fall/winter clothes since July... They are teasing me in my closet. I love the scallop detail on these shorts, gives them a feminine touch. Hope everyone had a great weekend, I attended my cousins wedding in Mississippi which was absolutely beautiful, and the weather was perfect!

Thank you sweet Kayla from Kayla Sellers photography for taking these pictures! Be sure to check out Kayla's facebook page, here!

Taking White to Fall



Hi everyone, I am SO excited to introduce you to my sweet friend, Meredith from Create That Outfit! Meredith is a fellow Dallas gal like myself, not only is she a total sweetheart, but her style is amazing-- this girl can literally pull off everything! Today we are showing different ways to incorporate white into your fall wardrobe. Meredith has showcased these killer white pumps, which are a perfect addition to add a pop of white into an outfit. I am also lusting over her Michael Kors bag, how perfect is that for fall? Everyone be sure to head over to Meredith's blog to check out some more of her posts!















Dress: Old Navy | Sweater: H&M | Booties: H&M | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Headband: Urban Outfitters | Sunnies: Rayban | Watch: Michael Kors

For my outfit I decided to take one of my white summer dresses and transition it to fall by putting one of my favorite fall sweaters over it. You can transform many of your favorite spring/summer dresses by adding a sweater or blazer on top. This outfit was also very comfortable-- my style is pretty casual for the most part so this outfit was right up my alley. 

For these pics, I recruited my awesome roommate, turned paparazzi, Katie-- thanks Katie, you're awesome!
