Hello Friday! I am so happy to see you! I am kind of a little excited for this weekend. I am headed to my first blog conference! In my 4 months of blogging, I have really enjoyed sharing my personal style and outfits with you, but I have sooo many questions! As soon as I heard there was a blog conference in the Houston area, I knew I had to sign up! I think a person can always improve and learn more which is why I am so excited for this conference. I am excited to meet other bloggers and learn ways to make my blog even better. Plus, one of my bookmarked bloggers is going to be a speaker which doubles my excitement. Of course now the problem, what does a new fashion blogger wear to a blog conference?
When thinking about my outfit, I wanted it to be comfortable to sit in all day, easy to move around in, and professional. To keep with the comfortable aspect of my look, I of course start with a plain white tee. I like wearing v-neck tees because to me they are more comfortable. To add a little glam to my plain tee, I add on a few layering necklaces and fun bracelets. An easy way to help boost up the professional look of any outfit – add a blazer. Just throwing it on over a t-shirt instantly adds a more put together appearance to a look. I also like to wear this look on casual Friday’s at work to get away with wearing a t-shirt. For work, I would add these amazing silver shoes, because they transition my look perfectly from work to happy hour! I have been searching for the perfect silver shoes for close to a year! I had a long list of requirements for them! I wanted a brushed not too shiny silver, a low heel but not too low, comfortable to stand in, not over pricey since I will not being wearing them but once or twice a month, and in my size. That last one may have been the hardest part! When I finally found this pair and in my size, I almost hugged the shoe salesman I was so excited. One casual professional outfit idea for this weekend down! Of course the rainy cold weather is making me consider an oversized sweater or cardigan too. By tomorrow morning, who knows what my final outfit will be. Happy Friday ya’ll! Hope you have a great weekend!

Did the end of February sneak up on anyone else? I have like a dozen or more things I have to do by the end of the month and somewhere to be every night! Eeeek! Despite the crazy stressful busy few days I have ahead of me, this outfit reminds me of the laid back and easy going days that follow. I have big plans to live in tanks or tshirts and maxi skirts this spring. My March weekends are already filling up with birthday parties, baby showers, family dinners, and girl’s wine time on the patio. I love the laid back yet still put together look of this outfit. The perfect outfit to go from brunch to kid’s birthday party to dinner with the family or just to enjoy a lazy Sunday with good friends and good wine. The way my March schedule is stacking up, I am going to need more outfits just like this one! I may need a few more maxi skirts – adding shopping to my to do list! Happy Wednesday!

You ever have those days where you stand in your closet completely undecided on what to wear? Or what usually happens to me, the outfit you had planned has one or more parts in the laundry basket? As frustrating as this is, I also have put together some of the most fabulous outfits in this moment. I am usually more experimental in mixing up pieces and often do not have the time to second guess or overthink an outfit decision. My look today is one of those last minute outfits for me. This top pairs amazingly with the skinny Loft moto pants that I wear on the weekly. When they are dirty which they very often are, I have to go for the backup plan. I have recently fallen in love with pairing my tunics with pencil skirts, so why not try out this checked print blouse with my top go to black pencil skirt from Loft. This is my second tunic blouse from Pleione, the first an amazing mixed media tunic. I love the cut and fit of their tops. I was actually on my way to check out at Nordstrom when I saw this top. The print initially drew me in, and when I saw that the brand was one I had a good experience with, I had to try it on. Definitely, a print I see wearing well into fall this year. With this outfit, I decided to break away from the normal black pumps and pencil skirt rut I sometimes fall into when rushed to get dressed in the morning. I love my pumps, but at the end of winter I am always itching to get back in my sandals and wedges. These wedges looked great a few weeks back with skinny jeans, and I am really liking how they pair with pencil skirts. A nice break from the usual, and often expected black pump.

If there is anything you become accustomed to growing up in Texas, it is a road trip! I admit it, I am not a huge road trip person. I hate sitting still, and I do not like being in a confined space for long periods of time. Traveling Texas does make it a little better though. I will never forget driving to my best friend’s wedding in spring a few years ago, looking out at the massive fields of bluebonnets in bloom. Then there was the three hour drive from home to college with the tall pine trees and small towns. Texas road trips definitely have amazing views! I am super pumped for my road trip this weekend with some of my girlfriends. Our sorority is having their annual state convention in Dallas, and we have decided to make a fun girl’s weekend out of it! So I have decided to dedicate my post to a little road trip style.
Sitting in a car for four hours requires comfortable clothes! We will be arriving to Dallas and going straight to the convention, so I also need my outfit to go from car to a mingling event pretty effortlessly. My H&M jersey top fits the bill for travel comfort! It’s lightweight and a little loose so I can adjust comfortably in a car. Plus, jersey is the best travel fabric since it doesn’t wrinkle very easy. Since we are going straight to an event when we get there, I am considering skipping my normal shorts or leggings for jeans. These jeggings may fit the bill though since they are kind of a combo of both. Most important for a road trip is shoes that I can easily slip on and off. Flats and booties are great for an easy wear shoe. Normally I would probably go for a flip flop, but winter is making a guest appearance for one more week so those are out. For my road trip today, I can’t guarantee this will be exactly what I wear. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t change three times before walking out the door. I mean I already have like 3 outfits packed just for the Saturday luncheon. Regardless, my outfit will be very similar and have the same casual, laid back feel to it. Hope ya’ll have a fabulous weekend!!
