Spring Shift

Charlotte Russe Dress, Target Wedges, 5th and Ashland Bracelet (The Carlisle),
 Shamelessly Sparkly Earrings

A casual shift dress is the perfect little staple come Springtime, and this one from Charlotte Russe is not only darling, but a great price. I paired it with some fun striped wedges and statement earrings for a casual day around town with one of my best girlfriends yesterday. I can't wait for the temps to stay warm so that I can keep wearing flowy dresses and skirts! 

You can shop other shift dresses that I'm loving here...

Thursday Thoughts

I have been reflecting on this so much lately, and really trying to wrap my mind around these five little words. I have learned, that sometimes the things that we want the most in life are the things which we must work hardest for. At times, when you feel as if your dreams are too far away or you're beginning to grow weary of trying...KEEP GOING. It's easy to get discouraged or to feel defeated when you aren't seeing instant results, but every little step that you take towards your goal is one step closer to the place you are meant to be. Good things always take time, and the best things in life are worth fighting for.~

Cold Front

Old Navy Sweater (same style in red), Forever 21 Jeans, Juicy Couture Bag and Bracelet, T.J. Maxx Earrings, Michael Kors Watch (similar), Coach Boots

When the weather decides to get cold again, I like to be as comfy as possible. So yesterday, we it was a bit chilly out compared to the Spring temps that we have been used to, I opted for an over-sized sweater, my comfiest jeans, and a cozy pair of boots. I went and had lunch with one of my best girlfriends and then we grabbed coffee at my favorite. I can't wait for warmer weather to come back! 

P.S. I believe every girl needs a go-to leopard bag. Perfect to add a little spice to your look. You can shop some of my favorites here...

I love a classic tee that you can pair with your favorite jeans or throw on over a fun sundress. This American Eagle tee is just the one that I had been looking for to incorporate a cute Spring print into my wardrobe. I love the mix of stripes and purple flowers, and not to mention it's super comfy. I can't wait to pair it with a few more things this Spring!

Sunny Days

Express Portofino Shirt, Shorts From Boutique in San Francisco (similar), Old 
Navy Hat (similar), Charlotte Russe Metallic Trim Wallet
Naughty Monkey Wedges (similar)

When the temps outside are reaching 77 degrees in February, that calls for a much needed celebration! And in my case, that meant bringing out shorts and wedges for the day! (Even if I'm slightly too pale for this combo and definitely need a tan haha) I was beyond thrilled on Tuesday with the beautiful day that we had and celebrated by grabbing coffee outside with one of my besties. I am a sucker for warm weather and spending as much time as possible outdoors. The weather has started to get a little chilly again, but I know Spring is just around the corner and I can't wait!

Little Red Dress

Charlotte Russe Dress, Express Blazer (similar), Gianni Bini Sandals, Vintage Bag, 
Accessory Jane Bracelet

Every girl has a go-to little black dress, but in my closet the 'little red dress' is just as big of a staple. For date nights with your man or fun nights out with the girls the LRD is always a perfect option and this little number from Charlotte Russe is one of my favorites. Not only is it super cute, but totally affordable. I can't wait to style it a few different ways!

P.S. I haven't been able to find the link to this dress online, but it's brand new and they should have it at your nearest CR (Will post the link when I can) xo

Spring Fling

The weather has been absolutely amazing this week in Texas and it's got me itching for Spring and hoping that warm days are here to stay! Once the temps begin to get hotter, it makes me want to start dressing in lighter shades and more basic colors. Featured above is a list of some of my faves from around the web right now that can easily transition you into Spring. From a fun playsuit to bleach moto jeans and a white bodycon dress. I can't wait to add some of these to my wardrobe.

Stripes + Stripes

Old Navy Striped Jersey Dress, Charlotte Russe Striped Crop Sweater, Sira & Mara Necklace, New Look Booties

I have always loved mixing stripes with stripes. It's such a fresh and fun combo to take you into those warmer days. We have been having such amazing weather in Texas lately, and I have simply been over the moon about it. I am so excited for Spring and Summer and with the temps in the 70s right now, this girl is beyond happy. I decided to bring out my new striped jersey dress from Old Navy the other day and paired it with a cozy striped cropped sweater from Charlotte Russe. I love comfort during the weekends, and one of my favorite staples during the Summer months are comfy dresses. 

P.S. My darling necklace is from Sira & Mara Jewelry. They have absolutely beautiful and affordable one-of-a-kind pieces for every girl's style. I am wearing this gorgeous statement necklace. I'm also swooning over this 'Gleaming Love Necklace' and this 'Baroque Crystal Bracelet'.

Even though my sweet love Ben is an ocean away, I still plan to celebrate V-Day with my family and some of my favorite girls later. What are your Valentine's Day plans? Whatever they may be, make sure you include lots of yummy chocolate! (Because it's definitely acceptable and a must on Love Day :)
