Lets Talk About Impulse Buys...

Dress: ASOS (on sale!) | Shoes: Just Fab | Bracelet: Kendra Scott | Lipstick: Mac Ruby Woo

I could write an entire love poem about how much I love this dress, ever since my style spirit animal/separated at birth sister Courtney Kerr wore it in a blog post months ago. This was one of my many impulse buys… did I have a place/event to even wear this dress? (lets be real this is not your everyday, out to dinner dress) Nope. Do I have a boyfriend to take me out on a fancy date in this dress? Even bigger no. So basically I had no business purchasing a dress this sexy/beautiful with nowhere to wear it. But you know what? Who cares… sometimes you just wanna buy something like this because it makes you feel damn good. So I did. And it is probably one of the best impulse buys I have ever made. I will be honest though, some serious side-boob action takes place in this dress-- especially for you ladies gifted up top (aka not me). However, some double sided fashion tape should do the trick! So after my mini rant the point of all of this is…. every once in awhile (whether you need it or not) you just  gotta make an impulse buy and then go buy a bottle of wine and drink it (the whole thing!!) and then I promise after that you will totally justify your purchase-- and maybeeee even go online and make a few more in your wine drunk haze. (Not that I have everrr done that before).

And once again, a BIG, BIG special thank you to my super fabulous photographer, Kayla,  for taking these pictures for me! Thank you for supporting my blog and my fashion journey. Everyone go check out Kayla Sellers Photography here!

If I were a Gypsy...

Dress: Lulus (Very similar here - seriously obsessed with this one) | Jewelry: Forever 21, Michael Kors, and other random finds

I'm back frolicking in the water again….totally normal right? Probably not….however wearing gorgeous maxis such as this one, and dressing them down to make them casual- a big YES in my book.   This maxi is great because it can also transition to fall- just add a chunky sweater or kimono!

Once again I cannot think my sweet friend Kayla from Kayla Sellers Photography enough for shooting these pics for me… and let me tell ya'll this is not all as glamorous as it looks. It was literally 100 degrees, sweating like crazy we had to hike, crawl under and over fences, and hold back tree branches from whacking each other in the face in order to get these pictures. All while toting around all of Kayla's equipment and my stuff. So if that doesn't tell you how dedicated of a photographer Kayla is then I don't know what other proof you need. Thank you SO much Kayla. Everyone do yourself a favor and check out Kayla's photography page here !

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!
