Red Velvet Holiday Chic

Merry Christmas Eve! I’m double blogging about velvet. Velvet has been a major trend in 2016. I have to admit I’ve been a fan for a few years. I purchased this red velvet dress from Dillard’s a couple of years ago. I remember first wearing it and receiving so many compliments. I felt I was dressed as a Christmas present all wrapped up! I wore this last Christmas Eve and I’ll be wearing it tomorrow for Christmas day! Sorry family for the duplicate family Christmas photos! This has been such a great holiday outfit for me. I like pairing this dress with lace tights each year to give even more detail to my look! Scroll down to see yesterday’s blog post where I talked about the use of different prints and trends in your outfit.

Well I’m off to help my mom in the kitchen this morning! I’ll be making cake balls for our Christmas Eve party with the hubby’s family tonight. What Christmas plans are you forward to? What holiday outfits are you looking forward to wearing this season? I hope all of you have a wonderful Merry Christmas.

Happy Friday! For many of you your workweek is ending and you’re looking forward to a relaxing weekend. I however, have a huge work event this weekend that I’m so excited for, but know I’ll be absolutely exhausted by the time the weekend has come to an end.

Anyway, let’s talk about fashion! I purchased this Betsey Johnson dress about two years ago, after wearing it in a fashion show. At the time, it was around $200 full—price, which was way out of my budget. I waited until it was more than 50% off before purchasing. I’m so glad I did. I’ve probably worn this dress 20-25 times. I love it.

At that time bell sleeves were a risky, yet confident-in-your-style kind of decision to make. I enjoy taking risks with my style, in hopes of showing other women pieces they can add to their wardrobe. Now bell-sleeves are all the rage! This Spring and Summer was huge for the style. Every fashion blogger was wearing them and they were in every store I walked into. Isn’t it funny how trends from the 60’s and 70’s are such a hit this year? Although my dress is no longer available, I have linked the cream version here and I’ve added similar styles below.

Happy Fall! Oklahoma weather is so bizarre. Within a three day period the weather will go from 90 degrees to 60 degrees and rainy. Fall seems to be a hit and miss situation so far around here. I’ve been on a six-week hiatus but I’m back! So nearing towards the end of October I am happy to be sharing my fall inspirations with you!

I purchased this leather jacket from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which seems to be ages ago, and this is the first time I’ve been able to break it in. It is a staple piece among bloggers this fall and winter at a great price! This jacket is thick so I know I’ll be wearing it into the winter months. Are leather jackets a part of your fall wardrobe? How do you like to style yours? In this post I styled mine with a super soft t-shirt style dress (pick up at Dolce Vita in Tulsa). I definitely will be styling this jacket in many more ways to come so stay tuned!

Fall Faves

Happy Friday! With fall a month away and temps in Tulsa camling down this past week from above 100 degrees to 90 degrees (lol) I’m beginning to think about what pieces I’ll be purchasing for my fall wardrobe this year. Booties are always a staple piece for fall and winter months so there’s always a TON to choose from. I can’t wait to get these! I purchased THIS leather jacket a few weeks ago and I can’t wait for the temps to cool down so I can start wearing it. Off – the – shoulder tops will still be huge in the earlier months of fall. Try pairing your OTS top with a small scarf this fall. What are some of your fall faves? Comment below!

1. Blank NYC Black Leather Jacket – I purchased a small and fits fine. I’m a size 2-4.

White Hot

Happy Monday! Ahh I’m so excited to be blogging again! I took off for the 4th of July and decided to take last Monday off as well. Sometimes you need to step away for a short period of time to refocus your energy. I’m glad I did that and I’m happy to be back full of excitement! Thank you for your continual support.

It has been over 100 degrees here in Oklahoma the past couple weeks so sweating immensely has become the norm for everyone around here. I thought I’d make that the topic of this week’s post; how to dress when it’s ridiculously hot outside. It doesn’t take an engineer to figure out that the less clothing you wear, the cooler you will be! But, lets not get too carried away as most of us still want to be presentable, that’s why my tank is so great for summer weather. I’m really big into any fabric other than cotton when I’m hot. I know people say cotton is “good” to wear in summer but I’m always miserable with a cotton shirt in 100 degree weather. I go for a lot of polyester material in the summer heat days. Polyester allows for better airflow and dries much more quickly than cotton, which helps when you’re dealing with sweat! As much as I love wearing my daisy duke cut offs every day in summer, (I work from home) sometimes occasions call us to be a little more presentable. Try going for this version of shorts to dress up a little. A cute summer dress like this or this is always fantastic as well.

Stay cool ladies!

Cold Shoulder Chic

Open Shoulder Nude Midi Dress

Happy Monday! My usual photographer and husband, Austin, is currently in Boston this weekend helping a friend move back to Tulsa. So sometimes I get lucky and the talented Lauryn Tumpkin helps me out like she did with my first post here. Thank you, Lauryn!

I picked THIS dress up from the TopShop Collection at Nordstrom. The nude (I say pinkish) cold shoulder midi dress is fun to dress up or down. For attending a wedding, dress it up like I did or for a fun brunch date try mixing it with a pair of Converse shoes and a choker necklace.

*FYI – I love TopShop but I learned with their brand I had to size up one size on everything.

My Spring-Style Floral Skater Dress

I never wait this late to write a post! It’s 10pm on a Sunday night and I just got home from Hop Jam, where we got to see some friends play, along with the folk/hippie band, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zero’s (so fun). My feet are swollen and I’m covered in a layer of sweat, SO gross! This weekend was full of festival fun.

I’ve been waiting a few weeks to share THIS DRESS (similar here) from our local Dolce Vita with you guys! Ahh, another one of those pieces I fell in love with so so quickly once stumbling upon! This floral print skater dress makes any body type look great; it hugs and flows in all the right places. This was my first skater-style dress purchase and I have to say I’m hooked. The closeness of the waist and the flowing bottom (my favorite) make me feel all the more girly, while the back makes the dress so unique for skater-style dresses. If you’re in the Tulsa area, stop by Dolce Vita and give this beauty a try-on! I’ve linked a couple very similar ones I love here and here.

See you next week loves!

Flashy Pink Dress with Lace Up Shoes

I can’t believe it’s already Monday again. I’ve had so much fun these past few weekends. Last week, I told you guys that Mother’s Day was my birthday. The day before, my parents came up to Tulsa and took us out to The Rusty Crane for lunch. A place I had wanted to try for a while; the patio is perfect and the food is delicious! My husband, Austin was in a wedding Sunday in OKC, and it just worked out that my BFF Shelby lives in OKC as well. She was studying for pharmacy school finals and graciously gave up some time for me! (She passed btw, cause she’s a genius.) We celebrated by grabbing brunch at Fassler Hall (so good) and did some shopping afterwards (no luck) afterwards we headed off to the wedding!

This Sam Edelman dress was a purchase from last year but…. I found it SO cheap for you guys! This is a great dress I love throwing on for those warm spring and summer days. You can dress it up or down! Throw on a pair of converse and you’re ready for a Saturday brunch with friends, or dress it up with THESE super comfortable heels like I did and you’re looking chic so easily! I love having clothing that  accessorizes for me. I’m the type of girl that goes for the printed pattern dress, to avoid having to find the perfect jewelry combo. This dress just makes everything so easy. And best of all, it has POCKETS! I’m a sucker for dresses or skirts with pockets. Lastly, the TOP trending sunglasses this season; oh Dior how I love you so, yet can’t afford you… so I picked up similar dupes to these at Dolce Vita.

See you next Monday loves!
