With Valentine’s Day coming up I thought I’d share a chic date night look I love to wear. This is a great outfit for going out anytime this winter season for date night, dinner, drinks, etc. I especially love the lace floral detailing mixed with the bell sleeve. I love incorporating bell sleeves into my wardrobe as they can be such a stylish piece. When temperatures drop I like to pair this outfit with my black leather jacket (on sale). Check out how else I style the jacket here! This black leather jacket has become a staple piece of my fall and winter wardrobes.
This weekend we’re heading to Dallas to celebrate my hubby’s birthday along with Valentine’s Day! So you know what that means, Nordstrom shopping oh yea! I can’t wait to see what kind of things I find. I’m like a kid in a candy store there. I’m looking for some great pieces to add to my spring wardrobe. Let’s be honest, my spring wardrobe is the largest. Floral and pastels are my thing, what can I say!
We’re looking for some great restaurants and brunch spots to hit up, so comment below if you know of any! We’ve also heard that the Bishop Arts District in Dallas is a must see so we’ll definitely be checking out that area of town.

Blouse – color coffee – ON SALE!

Happy Friday! I’m currently writing from beautiful Colorado Springs! I’ve got to say this is much prettier than Oklahoma. The mountains are gorgeous here, although nothing beats the Oklahoma sunsets. This week, my husband and I have been staying with his sister Bonnie (pictured above) and her husband. Bonnie and I work together for her father’s company. They’ve been so kind by opening up their home to us and showing us all the great local coffee shops, restaurants, nature sites, and of course boutiques. We took these pictures at the famous Broadmoor Hotel in The Springs. I’ve never been to a hotel this gorgeous in my life. If you’re ever in the area you’ll definitely want to check it out and if your pocket book is bursting at the seams, try staying a weekend there. It’s crazy beautiful and romantic.
Like I said, this past weekend Bonnie showed me around a few boutiques here and there. One place in particular she took me to was a stylish new shop called erbn Boutique. It’s where Bonnie picked up the duster she’s wearing in the photos above. Doesn’t she look gorgeous?! They have the cutest pieces and get new merchandise in DAILY!
In other news we’re loving Colorado but we’ve had a few set-backs this week. My husband and I planned on going backpacking for a few days around Telluride and 1 hour into the 5 hour drive our Subaru overheated. Luckily after it cooled down we were able to drive it slowing over to a car shop where they told us we blew a head gasket and it’d be $2300 and a few days to fix. Through the tedious process of determining what to do and how we would get home, my husband and I both came down with terrible colds that day. We’re just so thankful to have family to lean on during this tough week. I guess we’ll just need to have a re-do vacation!

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.

Happy Monday! I’m currently sitting lakeside this weekend. We haven’t been out once this whole summer so I’ve been dying to come. The lake is my absolute favorite place. I don’t know if it’s because I grew up in Oklahoma or what but there’s something about being out at the lake that makes me feel like I’m escaping life even if just for a day or two. Don’t we all need relaxation every once in awhile?
This has been such a fun post. I recently purchased THESE converse and was wondering how I was going to style them. I loved the idea from other bloggers with taking a pair of white sneakers and throwing it together with a dress or skirt. It seems very 80s or 90s to me! Speaking of 90s, MY choker necklace is back in style. If someone would’ve told me this at the age of 7 they’d be cool again I would’ve kept a few! I loved them growing up and I think it’s so cool that things like white sneakers and choker necklaces we wore as kids are back in style today as adults. This skirt was a recent find from the TopShop collection. I love the cut-out lace detailing. I chose to dress it down in a fun way. This is a perfect summer wear! What are your thoughts on my 90s vibe summer outfit?

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!
