I did it! I finally pulled the trigger and bought these shoes!! They went on sale last week to under $100, and I could not resist! I originally thought I was going to order either the beige or red ones, but I ended up going with the yellow. I LOVE these shoes! When picking a color I decided on yellow because I thought it was fun and different. I mean if I am going to by fun fringe sandals, why not buy them in a fun color too!
I wore almost this exact outfit to a blogger brunch this weekend, but I wore this black top. I was able to test out these shoes, so I can give you an early review. When I first put them on, they were a bit different to walk in. They reminded me a bit of mule feel. I did realize that it helps to tie the laces a little tighter to give you more support, and it makes it easier to walk. When I first tied them, one was looser and I could really tell a difference. By the end of the brunch and after walking around in them a bit more, I did find it easier to walk. I don’t own many shoes in this style, so I think I just needed to adjust to it.
I ordered my normal size on these, and they fit perfectly! You can tie the fringe tassels to be either front or back. Don’t worry these babies will be on the blog plenty over the next few months, so you will get to see them tied to the front too. I really like them both ways, but I do think tied front is cuter. I tied them front for the brunch and really liked how it peeked out of the jeans.
I just wrote a whole lot about just a pair of shoes! 🙂 For the rest of this outfit, I went pretty neutral with my top and bottom because I really wanted my shoes to stand out. I love mixing colors, and I love how the yellow looks with the maroon and purple of my jewelry. One of the reasons I opted for yellow is because of all the color mixing options. I can picture these shoes with bright neon type colors this summer and jewel tones for early fall.
I hope ya’ll had a great weekend! In addition to my blogger brunch, I started Spring cleaning my closet. I made some really good progress and re-organized it a bit. I still have more work to do, but I love how it is coming along! Is anyone else planning a big spring cleaning project this year??

We made it to Friday!!! I love Spring weekends, because for a few months you can enjoy the outdoors in Texas, patio weather as we like to call it. I have a few fun little blogger events this weekend, but I also have some prosecco chilling in the fridge for a little quiet time on my back patio! I’m hoping our Easter weather will be similar next weekend. We love to sit outside in my Grandma’s backyard after lunch.
I wore this look to my cousin’s bridal shower a couple week ago, and it would make such a cute Easter outfit. I was nervous to wear denim to a shower, because I feel like you should always wear a dress. I think it’s just because I like any excuse to wear a dress, because plenty of people wear jeans to a shower. This whole look started with this top. A few days before the shower, I purchased it from Anthropologie. I was immediately drawn to the orange color, because you just don’t always see this kind of bright orange color. It also comes in a pretty pastel blue too. I love the little lace details and flutter sleeve. I knew this was going to be one of those tops I could wear in the hottest part of summer.
I also knew it would look super cute with white denim. Deep down I knew this outfit would be perfect for a bridal shower, so I decided to let go of my dresses only rule. Well compromise by dressing up denim with a cute pair of heels and some gold jewelry. I opted to go without a necklace because of the lace detail on the chest. I went with long drop earrings and my big cuff to fancy my look up a bit. I really like these pointy toe pumps to add a sophisticated elegance to the outfit. It made the look feel more dressed up.
Before you head out on this Fabulous Friday, I wanted to let you know that Tory Burch is have a huge Private Sale HERE. Tory Burch is a little bit pricey, so I usually wait for a sale to shop. I wanted to pass along in case you are the same way. The sale is limited quantities, so if you love it buy it quick! The wedges I wanted were already sold out by the time I arrived home from work yesterday. 🙁
Have a great weekend ya’ll, and I hope this week you found some outfit inspiration for Easter Weekend!

Spring is hands down my favorite season for dresses! It was hard to narrow this list down. As a kid, I definitely remember always getting to buy a fancy dress for Easter and Christmas. My sister and I totally had matching dresses for years until we started boycotting because nothing made your more uncool then dressing like your sister. 🙂 These days my family keeps it pretty low key for Easter usually jeans or a casual sundress.
I tried to pick a variety of Easter dresses for all the different ways you may spend the holiday. The bottom red dress is probably the one I would pick for my family Easter celebration. It would be perfect paired with some brown wedges and a long pendant necklace. The short blue dress on top is one of my front-runners for my cousin’s wedding next month. It has a super cute criss-cross back design. I’m hoping to head to the store to try it on soon. It also comes in a bright pink, so I want to try on both colors to help me decide.
I also picked a couple dresses that can also work for the office. My shopaholic nature absolutely uses holidays and events as an excuse to buy a new dress. If I were buying an Easter dress, I would probably pick something I could wear to the office or to church on regular Sundays too.

I am so excited for the time change. Yes, I hated losing an hour of sleep, but I LOVE that the days are longer now! When it gets dark early, my brain thinks “It’s time for bed.” In winter, I can easily go to bed at like 8, but I try to hold out until 9. The longer daylight hours make me soooo much more productive.
We had lots of fun at the Rodeo Friday night. We ended up being in a suite with free food, so we decided to save our fried rodeo food binge for another trip. The concert was amazing! Darius Rucker did a great job of mixing his country music with his Hootie and the Blowfish hits. I hope you got a chance to check out some of my Snapchat snaps from the night!
This week on the blog, I am sharing some Easter outfit ideas. Easter falls on March 27th this year which is only a couple weeks away. Whenever Easter is in March, I feel like it sneaks up on me. I always expect it to be in April.
This first look is kind of a casual Easter outfit. For holidays, my casual attire still tends to have a bit of a dressy aspect to it. Both my top and jeans were purchased during the Shopbop sale a few weeks ago. I love this top! This top is also supposed to be able to be worn as a dress. I feel like I need a tan for that because it’s kinda short. I love the floral print, super pastel color, and all the movement when I walk. Plus, hello I can eat like all Grandma’s desserts in this top. 😉
Last summer I tiptoed ever so slowly into wearing white denim, and this year I have a feeling I’m going to wear it so much my other jeans are going to be jealous. I originally wanted these AG white jeans which I own in blue and LOVE, but my size was out. I decided on these Paige ones, because I love the dark denim version I own. The denim fabric is nice and thick which means no worries about being see through. They really hold their shape too. I can easily wear mine multiple times without the fabric over-stretching and becoming saggy. I have definitely realized that paying a little extra for denim is worth it. I find they don’t stretch as much, and so far the ones I have had for awhile still look pretty new. I know it is still months away, but I’m already planning on buying a couple pairs of denim in the big Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year.
Speaking of sales, Baublebar is having a 30% off sale today! I own quite a few of their bracelets and a couple other fun statement earrings and necklaces. If you need to spruce up your jewelry drawer a bit, check them out. You need to used code NEVERENOUGH at checkout, and just a heads up they do have a few exclusions.
Thanks for swinging by the blog today, and don’t forget to check back Wednesday for some Easter Dress ideas!
