Fullproof

Abstract Printed Blazer

Yesterday we had to wake up and travel almost six hours round trip for a family gathering, which meant we had to wake up early, get dressed and hurry out the door to meet everyone before noon. If you know me, you know that I am last minute, down to the wire and queen of procrastination. I should have had clothes picked and laid out the night before, but of course that didn't happen. I purchased the printed blazer last week from one of my favorite Austin boutiques, Beehive. It was still hanging over my bathroom door and the first thing my eyes focused on when I rolled out of bed. Naturally, not thinking twice, I grabbed it and paired with basic additions for a quick and easy style. A blazer, simple white tee, a trusty pair of denim, fun heels and a few jewelry favorites will always see us through the "gotta get dressed in a flash" moments. It's foolproof. Always.

Silver Cowgirl Boots...What?


Today I am partnering with Country Outfitter and talking boots, not just regular boots. We are not even discussing your typical brown/black basic cowgirl boots, but silver ones. Yep, silver. You can see more of this trend here

Supposedly this is a new thing in the cowgirl boot world. I am sorry, I just can't. I think this is one of those trends that will be here for less than .5 seconds. Cowgirl boots are an investment. I think if you are going to make the purchase, it should be on a pair that are classic and will take you through several years of wear, like the Ariat pair I chose from Country Outfitter.

If you have been reading for a while, you know I am from Texas, I love country music, I enjoy "country" things and I am a big fan of western boots...all season long. Silver though? It's just not going to happen; even if Miranda Lambert is on board.

In my opinion, I think every girl in the whole entire world should own a pair of cowgirl boots. I have worn mine over and over. I have had these Tony Lama ones for a few years. They have been my sidekicks on so many occasions. Then I came across this Ariat pair and fell more in love and felt a little guilty. Don't get me wrong, my Tony Lamas will still get plenty of attention, but for the time being my new boots are going to take the spotlight...they just aren't silver.

If you are looking to invest in a quality pair of cowgirl boots, I highly suggest Country Outfitter. They have a wide selections of colors, brands and prices. Their customer service is amazing and many items ship with 24 hours + receive FREE shipping on all boot purchases. Also, I recommend sticking to your typical shoe size when purchasing.

Wrapped

How to wear zara blanket scarf

Happy fall, ya'll! I am sure that phrase was written in some shape or form on every blog/social media channel yesterday. I know I was guilty and here I am today, saying it again.

I felt obligated to dress the part for the seasonal change. It was actually ironic that when we woke up yesterday morning a chill was in the air and a crispness lingered throughout the day. I am not saying it was cold, but enough of a cool down that made me want to skip. It was as though the universe knew that it needed to take the temps down a notch because after all, it WAS the first day of fall.

I have been waiting to wear this Zara blanket scarf for over a week, but because it's not even close to being cold here, there is no way I can wrap it around my neck. I can however drape it around my shoulders, add a belt and get my blanket scarf fulfillment without dying of a heat stroke or getting the side-eye from passersby. I might have clapped a couple times when I found out that Zara brought back a few new plaid color options from their ever-so-famous ones from last year. Unfortunately, the one I am wearing today is sold out online, but I think they plan on restocking soon. So make sure you leave them your email if you want to be notified once they are back. You can also call your local store.

I did find several great options for you to browse. I recommend grabbing one for the cooler days of fall and upcoming winter season. I purchased my first oversized scarf last year and wore it all the time. You can check out a few ways that I styled it here and here.




In other blog news I have a few randoms for you. 

1. I just finished Big Little Lies. If you haven't read it, download or head straight to the bookstore and grab a copy. I was so sad when it was over. It's one of the best I have read in a long time. Next on my list, another book from Liane Moriarty called The Husband's Secret.

2. I am getting my hair done next week. I want to do something new, but nothing too drastic. I found a few ombre colors on Pinterest that I fell in love with, but is ombre a thing of the past? Or maybe the new word is "bronde". At least that is what Google is telling me.

3. Candy corn M&Ms, pumpkin everything, darker lip colors, acorn stains on my drive away, a football obsessed husband, Halloween costume brainstorming, dinner from the Crock-Pot, hot apple cider and shorter days...I can finally talk about it all without feeling silly because the sun has officially set on Summer. Until next year...tear.
