This week it was hit an almost record breaking 80 degrees in Dallas (sorry to my Northeasterners about Juno!), and I’ve had to put most of my cold weather clothing on a temporary hiatus.
It was the perfect week to mix & match one of my favorite (and seriously ANCIENT) pairs of cargo pants from Old Navy with a girly silk blouse….then spruce it up with a pop of color in my shoes! I was so excited about a slice of Spring weather, and didn’t want to go too over the top…I think I balanced it out well, right?!
When the temperatures warm up in your city, what’s the first item you’ll be wearing?
One of the perks of my many jobs that I have is that, typically, I never have to dress up past denim. But one of the challenges of this is continually finding ways to spruce up yet another pair of jeans.
There are days that I want to forget the casual and wear a pencil skirt, or a suit, or a great fitting, business casual dress…..but sadly, its just impractical for meetings and the radio station! But on this particular day, I found a way to wear the ladylike elements of a 9-5 gal, but pair them with my traditional denim!
When it comes to most situations in life, you gotta pay to play. For me and my life, this saying is best suited to eating versus working out….and if I want to tex-mex & margaritas 3 times a week, then I gotta get my ass to a gym just as much…if not more!
And with all my New Year’s resolutions in full effect, now is as good a time as ever to get back into a routine with a weekly workout regimen! But before I hit the pavement and for for a jog, or hit the gym with my personal trainer, new workout clothesare obviously necessary…am I right or am I right?!
Lately it seems as if I have been retrieving the same items from my closet time after time: An oversized blazer, hug-every-curve denim, and the perfect nude accents. It’s simple, it’s timeless, and its classic.
And aren’t those the pieces that a wardrobe is ultimately built around? The never-fail, stand the test of time, and style, essentials?
Don’t you hate when someone says, “Patience is a virtue,” or “It will be worth the wait?”
These phrases usually drive me mad, as I am probably the most impatient person there is…especially when it comes to clothing. Thankfully, my shopping habits are pretty trained in the “buy now, wear now” mentality, meaning I shop in the moment…for the now…aka, for TONIGHT…which means, I never have to wait to wear a new, favorite article of clothing!
But every once and a while I slip out of this train of thought and purchase something knowing that it will be perfect upon a climate change, or for a certain trip or vacation. Example: This Cameo skirt.
I knew it was absolutely spot on for spring time, and I already had an outfit planned with exactly how I would style it. But quite frankly, its been sitting on a rolling rack in my apartment taunting me…and one night, I couldn’t take it anymore. I decided that I was gonna try to mix it up with some cold weather attire and boots and take it for a spin….NOW!
One place I love to be is next to a beach….if given the chance, I’d take sand over snow any day! This Christmas, I surprised my mother with a last minute to trip to Cabo. It was a great time for us to recharge, reenergize, sleep, and relax!
And, thankfully, traveling with my mother is a breeze….we both enjoy the same things, we both love to zone out during vacation, and we both love spending time together!
I’ve always had this notion that the words “flats” and “fancy” could never be used in the same sentence. Most of the flats I own are either tennis shoes, sandals, or easy shoes that I would run errands in….”fancy flats” are hard to find…until now.
I stumbled upon these checkered ladies by Sole Society and immediately fell in love. They have a cool menswear vibe that makes them feel dressy….and the outfit rolodex in my head of what I could wear them with began to churn….and with the cold weather in full effect, pairing them with my chic Sole Society fedora and a fabulous fur vest was the winning combination!
Tell me about your favorite pair of flats and how you like to make them feel “fancy!”
