Yearly Archives: 2019
Well it has been a long week! It started with me having a small cold which made me just want to come home and sleep after work and is ending with a little road trip to my first Aggie football game. I’m really excited to experience a Texas A&M game because I have heard it’s pretty cool. My college was not a big football school, so I feel like not many people went to games. I always wondered what it would be like to go to a game for a big school, and now I get to find out. In fashion preparation, I picked up a maroon coat because it’s supposed to be cold and a clear purse because apparently that’s a rule.
Enough football, let’s talk fashion. My look today definitely gives me a 70s inspired feel. This polka dot bell sleeve top with a semi-cropped banded waist made me think of the fashion of the 70s when I tried it on. I knew it needed to be paired with some flared jeans and tan suede heels to complete the outfit.
When trying to be inspired by past fashion trends, I try to give nods to the old but also keep the look present. You can do this with the print you choose or the accessories. I went with a smaller flare leg over a full bell bottom look, and went with a currently popular polka dot print.
You can instantly transform this top to current and chic by changing the jeans for a leather pencil skirt or skinny jeans. I love adding in a pop of color with my earrings. I think the big statement earrings were the perfect compliment to the overall look.
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Let the Holiday Shopping Season begin! Has anyone started their Christmas shopping yet? I have not, but I have started making a list of gift ideas for those I’m planning on shopping for this year. My plan for this year is have a gift list ready to go and take advantage of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. We will see if I am able to score any deals, at the very least I should be able to get some free shipping.
For my first gift guide of the season, I went with ya’lls yearly favorite Christmas gift ideas under $50. I found a variety of ideas in hopes of hitting multiple people on your list from the beauty lover, the foodie and entertainer, the traveler, and the one who likes cozy nights in.
A few stand out items on the guide:
PACKING CUBES – OK, these are on my wish list. These cubes are perfect for anyone on your list who travels whether it be for work or for fun. You can put different items in each cube to make a more organized suitcase. I love this idea because my suitcase always ends up looking like a hot mess while I am on vacation. The idea of putting like items together in these little cubes makes my organization loving heart happy.
SKINCARE SET – Drunk Elephant is one of my top skincare brands that I tried this year. I raved about some of their products in this post. This little set give you some of their top products for a steal of price! This skincare set would be great for all the ladies in your life!
SET OF WINE TUMBLERS – I have the unicorn color of these and love them! You can fill them with any beverage to keep it hot or cold. I love to use them by the pool with a cold beverage and filled with hot chocolate for viewing Christmas lights.
PENDANT NECKLACE – If you have zero clue on what to get someone, a pendant necklace is always a great idea. You can also find them in a variety of colors and price ranges to suit your needs. This brand is a favorite of mine. I’ve owned necklaces from them for years, and they still look great.
I will keep adding more ideas throughout the season below, so be sure to check back when you are ready to start shopping or need some fresh ideas. I have a few more gift guides coming for you over the next few weeks too, so stay tuned!
CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS UNDER $50
Hello Friday! Ya’ll this week went by pretty fast for me, which is a sign that the holidays are coming! I always think the end of the year flies by with all the holiday activities and shopping going on. If you are prepping your holiday gift shopping, stay tuned because my gift guides start next week! I know, I still can’t believe it’s already time to start our Christmas shopping.
Before we jump on that holiday, let’s go back one with this cute fall outfit that would be perfect for Thanksgiving! I’ve been majorly crushing on shades of brown this season. Earth tones have been big and give me all the fall feels! I’ve added so many earth tone tops to my closet including this cozy brown sweater. For more of a fall vibe, I paired this sweater with my brown suede booties. You could also opt for black jeans and tall black or brown boots for cooler winter weather.
My favorite part of this sweater has to be the cute bow detail on the back. It’s such a fun surprise detail and great if you wear your hair up on holidays. I know if I am helping in the kitchen, hair usually ends up pulled back which would showcase the cute bow detail! This sweater is super warm and cozy too! I wore it to work last Friday with a pair of brown OTK boots on one of our cold days, and I was so cozy all day!
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and thank you so much for spending some time with me this week!

Back with another cozy and comfy top for fall! This long sleeve wrap top is perfect for lounging around the house in leggings or pairing with jeans and booties for running errands. The material is soft and cozy. This dark pink rose color is so pretty and works well with brown and gold accessories. This top comes in a few other color options too.
I love the wrap style tops for hiding all the Thanksgiving and holiday food babies. 🙂 Bring on all the dressing and pie! My family is super casual for Thanksgiving, and this outfit would be perfectly in line with our holiday style. It’s also the kind of outfit I would wear during fall to run errands or meet friends for lunch. You could layer it under a long ivory cardigan or brown leather jacket for cooler weather too.
I had quite the busy weekend spending time on both days catching up with friends. I was super grateful for that extra hour of sleep, but I’m not as excited for it to get dark so early! Last night, I seriously felt ready for bed at like 7. I have a pretty low key week ahead, so hopefully it will give me some time to adjust to the earlier sunset. I hope you all had a great weekend and fabulous week ahead!
