Fall Wishlist

Friday, September 14, 2018

Fall might still be three weeks away but it is currently all I can think of. While we are still dealing with 80 degree days in Austin, I have been able to incorporate light sweaters and loafers into my wardrobe thanks to the cooling rains we’ve been getting {and crazy office AC!}. I have not put my linen away just yet but I am already dreaming of dark rich colors, like this pine green dress from Madewell, toss a chunky cardigan and booties and I’m all set for date night. Loving the gold dot earrings because lately I’ve been all about simple jewelry. So much so I’m even thinking about swapping my wedding band for a simple yellow gold ring, very minimal and clean. I’ve been also eyeing this bag since it came out. Need a black tote for work STAT and I love the caramel interior in this one {and monogramming option!}. Small make up update for cooler months with this berry lipstick from MAC. Toss a coat of mascara, some bronzer and you’re ready for the office. Sunglasses have been on my wish list for about a year now, maybe it will be my Christmas present from my husband. I also need new dark skinny jeans and these one from Mother Jeans fit like a dream. The peach sweater is perfect with cream pants for work and boyfriend jeans for the weekend. And last but not least, the loafers I’ve been coveting for over a year, these Gucci beauties that can be worn year round. This shoe is quite an investment but will never go out of style. All items linked above. 

What’s on your fall wish list?

Green Linen Dress

Wednesday, September 5, 2018

Dress // Earrings // Bag (similar) //Sunglasses //Shoes

Summer is winding down, along with my desire to buy light clothes. Everything in my carts and wishlists right now is sweaters in burgundy and camel, plaid and a couple blazers. I cannot wait to start layering! But before I do that, I wanted to show you my last purchase of the season, this adorable dress from Anthro. Runs TTS, wearing the XS here, super soft and light linen that drapes beautifully. I paired it here with my Stuart Weitzman heels and rattan bag I purchased in Japan {I found and linked a very similar one!}. Perfect outfit for date night or brunch if you swap the heels for sandals. I debated getting this dress at first since it is the end of Summer, but considering I live in Austin I know I still have a good two solid months of warm days to wear it.

Happy Wednesday!

Fall Transition: Flat Black Boots

Monday, August 27, 2018

While shopping for my honeymoon a couple years ago, I remember having a really hard time finding a good pair or flat black booties. I ended up getting a random pair and regretted it about 20 minutes into my walk around London…they hurt, A LOT. The leather was hard and stiff and I figured they would soften as I wore them more often but they never did. Since then I’ve been on the lookout for a good pair of black booties that I can wear during my winter travels {as in….tons of walking}. Ladies, I have found them, let me introduce you to the Sperry Maya Belle Leather Chelsea. Absolute perfection.

The leather is buttery and light, there was no ‘break in’ period and the fit is so comfortable it almost feels like wearing sneakers. It is a great quality boot for a really great price. This style also comes in cognac brown and leopard detail, perfect for Fall and the holidays! Sperry is known for their boating shoes and rain boots, which I know are really high quality, their new line of boots are no exception. They also have a suede collection which includes the Maya Lani Chelsea Bootie in black, brown and gray. I am particularly drawn to the gray as it is the perfect neutral tone to wear with summer outfits and slowly transition to colder months.

I’ll be sharing wishlist for Fall 2018 later this week. I’m seeing so many items I need to keep track of what I really want. Can’t wait for the weather to cool off a bit.


*Thank you Sperry for sponsoring this post.

El Rancho Tee

Wednesday, August 22, 2018

Tee // Shorts // Belt {similar} // Bag // Sunglasses 

Have you ever purchased something just because it cracks you up? That was the case with this t-shirt for me. Madewell opened its second store in Austin two weeks ago, I attended the opening party with a couple girlfriends and while perusing the VERY CROWDED store I spotted this tee. I love the adorable print of tiny humans and cactus, with some of them being upside down. I don’t know why but it made me laugh. Madewell actually has a full collection with this theme, I am so keeping my tabs on the sweater too. Reminded me a little of Tucson, Arizona, where I attended college. Unlike their V-neck and crew tees this tee is made of thick cotton and has a cropped style. I found it to be long enough to wear with regular linen pants or half-tucked into my high-waisted denim shorts.

I’m currently on a plane on my way to New York with my husband, I’m so excited to do a couple touristy things and hitting Central Park for my morning run. We will be heading to Philly a the end of the week to attend my cousin’s wedding. Should be a fun time. Can’t wait to share my adventures via Instagram!
