Friday Five

March 24, 2017


1. Is anyone keeping up with the NCAA tournament? This year I've been obsessed.  Unfortunately, SMU did not make it past the first round, but I've been tuning in to some of the games to keep track of my bracket.  My family and I have a competition going and I'm excited to see who will win!

2. My family picks up our new puppy, Ellie today!!! Make sure you're following my instagram if you want to see the cutest pictures of her!

3. I recently purchased this cleanser/makeup remover that everyone raves about. Has anyone else tried it?

4. I absolutely love this striped blouse on Emma from Emma Andree!

5. My friends and I listened to El Taxi by Pitbull so much while we were in Miami.  Even over a week later, I still can't get it out of my head! It's such a catchy song and will always remind me of our spring break trip!

Enjoy the weekend!

Wynwood Walls feat. The Blonde Prep!

March 23, 2017

Frannie from The Blonde Prep was also in Miami while I was there on Spring Break! While we didn't have a chance to actually meet, we decided to share the outfits we wore while exploring Wynwood Walls!

I could probably devote a whole post to how much I loved this area of Miami, but it's truly a place you have to see for yourself! I was really surprised by how colorful all of the buildings in Wynwood were, not just the ones specifically in Wynwood Walls. Even if you only walked through one block, you could find dozens of beautiful murals. 

This pink and white building completely caught my eye.  It was just beautiful.  I would love to know how the owners of these properties decide what gets painted on the facade. 

I'm not going to lie, I planned on wearing a neutral outfit that would look nice against different colors and designs.  This black off the shoulder top was the item of clothing I wore most in Miami. It's great for going out at night with a pair of white jeans and wedges, and perfect for exploring a new area with an outfit like this. 

These MISA earrings would be absolutely perfect for anyone who loves the look of large earrings, but is worried about the weight.  I have a few pairs of earrings that are quite heavy and I try not to wear for more than a few hours at a time. These tassel earrings are made from a string-like material, which makes them incredibly light, to the point where you might not even notice you are wearing them. 

Head over to Frannie's blog today to see what she wore while exploring Wynwood! 

Pink Skirt

March 22, 2017

Sweater (Old, Club Monaco) / Skirt / Necklace / Shoes / Sunglasses 

This skirt has quickly become one of my staples in my spring wardrobe.  You don't see pink velvet skirts everyday and this one is just so comfortable.  I'm surprised by how often I've been able to wear it since I first purchased it.  It's an elevated twist on your average denim skirt.  

This outfit was perfect for running around Dallas while my parents were in town a few weeks ago when the weather was a little cooler (normal spring temperatures for anywhere other than Dallas...).

What's on My Wishlist

March 21, 2017

After spending just a few days back at home and in the coldest weather I've felt in a long time, I am so excited to get back to Dallas because the weather is already in full spring mode! I've definitely been taking the pleasant temperatures for granted this winter. I am so excited for this spring and summer and have been absolutely loving all of the new arrivals at some of my favorite stores. 

Can you tell I have a thing for espadrilles? These Sam Edelman ones are so cute and come in so many colors! I can't stop wearing the J.Crew suede espadrilles I bought years ago, and these are pretty similar! 

I'm really excited about these J.Crew red statement earrings.  The price is amazing, especially for a piece like this.  I'm no stranger to large earrings and could see myself wearing these with a plain white outfit to really allow the earrings to speak for themselves. Since my school's colors are blue and red, I think that these would be great for this coming year's football season!

Miami Recap

March 20, 2017

As I write this, I'm sitting by a fire trying to escape the cold, which is completely the opposite from what I was doing just a few days ago in Miami. For spring break, a few of my friends and I spent five days in Miami and I absolutely fell in love with the city.  I would say that Miami has made its way into my top three US cities, behind New York and Dallas.

We stayed at the Fontainebleau, which was a huge hotel with a lot going out so it was really fun to be there.  However, if I ever go back to Miami, I would love to stay at The Confidante (the keys have a banana print on them and if that doesn't explain why I want to stay there I don't know what will!). Our hotel had a huge pool area and easy beach access.

Going to Wynwood Walls has always been on my bucket list, so a few of my friends and I took the time one morning to check it out. Y'all it was so cool! I wish I could've spent more time there exploring each and every building because the colors and murals were so beautiful.  While we were in the area, we stopped to have lunch at Wynwood Bar + Kitchen and it was so delicious!

One night, we went to Barton G, one of the coolest restaurants I've been too in my life.  The restaurant itself is very nice and ordinary, but the dishes they bring are absolutely crazy.  I ordered a margarita and it came on a board with a light up cactus and pinata! My friend and I also split lobster pop tarts (omg, yum) and they came in a toaster! Some of the dishes from the tables around us came with giant guitars, life-size dog statues, and just about the craziest platings you could imagine.  I would recommend searching Barton G on instagram if you want to be entertained!

For brunch, we went to The Continental and it was so so good!! I loved how art deco it was and the food was so good too! They had a whole wall lined with a palm printed curtain, so of course we had to snap a few pictures! Go for the aesthetic, stay for the food haha! Seriously though, this place was dreamy.
