3 Pairs of Shoes You Need Right Now

I made this video while on the plane yesterday.  I have some footage and free time, so I decided to embark on a fun project.  I'm happy I decided to do this because the plane ride flew by (no pun intended).  

I never thought of myself as a shoe addict until I went to college and realized I have three (overflowing) bins of shoes.  I've realized that the shoe can really make the outfit.  An average outfit can be completely brought to life with a bright shoe.  It's almost an unexpected twist that may not be noticed until you see the full look.

My three favorite shoes at the moment are my blue pumps, lace up espadrilles, and leopard ballet flats.  The blue pumps are sophisticated but the color makes them fun, while the espadrilles are perfect for spring and summer nights out to dinner. The ballet flats can be worn with almost any outfit on a regular occasion.

Keep Up the Motivation

For those of you in need of an extra boost of motivation, here are some great quotes I've been turning to to keep me focused.  It's the homestretch before spring break so tests and quizzes are popping up everywhere.  It's easy to get overwhelmed and take the easy route by choosing to spend an extra hour watching Netflix instead of reviewing notecards, but I promise you'll come out of it alive!

10 Formal Dresses

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10

With prom right around the corner and formal season in full swing, everyone seems to be on the hunt for the perfect long dress.  It's always great to have a few saved in your likes on a few websites, so that you have a go-to dress or to incase of last minute emergencies.  Some of my favorite right now are really simple because they're easier to re-wear and usually pretty flattering for any occasion.

DRESS: BCBG / BAG: Burberry (on sale!!) / HEELS: Steve Madden

This dress is a perfect year round closet staple.  I wore this for the final day of sorority recruitment and I'm so happy I dead because I was comfortable and felt confident.  I could see myself wearing this in a more casual setting with a denim jacket and sandals.  

I'm also obsessed with these heels because the block heel makes them so comfortable and they're my favorite, suede! I also read that block heels are trending this spring, which I'm so okay with.

Neutrals for Spring

Well, Hello again! I kind of fell off the grid last week, but I promise I'm alive! School has really caught up with me and I've been devoting all of my time to projects and tests, so Dash has really slipped away from me sadly. But, I'm trying to draft posts way ahead of time so I don't slip behind again (let's see how long this lasts...)

While Dallas may be alone on this, it's really felt like spring.  Last week we had temperatures in the low 70s, which was a real treat.  I can't say the same for my family back in NJ that had to deal with single digits last week.  This winter has really been mild in Dallas, which makes me even more excited for Spring.  

Specifically, Spring clothes!!! I can't to add some more color to my wardrobe, but I also can't wait to wear the lighter neutrals I own.  Looking through some new arrivals online I noticed there are so many spring neutrals.

Host the Perfect Galentine's Day Party

I'm currently on the hunt for an apartment to live in next year, which has made me excited to think about all the dinner parties I plan on hosting.  I love to cook and my friends love to eat, so I can't wait to have them over to celebrate random things.  One holiday I'm especially excited to celebrate with friends is Valentine's Day! I'm pink obsessed and I love that during this time of year you can't escape it.  Everything comes in pink: candy, phone cases, clothing, food, etc.  It's everywhere!

While I'm day dreaming about hosting a Galentine's Day party (Valentine's Day with your Gals!), some of you can actually have one! I've collected recipes for delicious treats and cute DIYs to impress your friends and have some fun! If you try any of these things out be sure to send me a picture, I'd love to see!

Spring Fever

FIVE: S'well Bottle / SIX: Lace Up Heels / SEVEN: Watch 

EIGHT: Orange Pouch / NINE: Sneakers 

Happy early Spring!!! Though we still have a bit of winter left, I already can't wait to start bringing out my spring wardrobe. But, I must admit I don't really know how much of it I really put away.  So far, this winter in Texas has been pretty mild and I really can't complain.  Actually, I'm kind of wishing for a little snow (and maybe a snow day?) just to get my small dose of winter that I've been craving!! 

Even still, I've been in love with the bright colors coming out for this season.  Lots and lots of color makes my heart so happy.

Color Block and Fringe

DRESS: Mara Hoffman (on sale!!) / SHOES: Steve Madden  
NECKLACE: Bauble Bar / BAG: Rebecca Minkoff 

For those of you that have been wanting to see my outfits from recruitment, here you are! This is what I wore on the skit day of recruitment, though I switched out these heels for booties.  This outfit was perfect for standing up and talking all day because it's incredibly comfortable but also really flattering.  I really loved wearing this for rush too because it stands out a little bit without making too much of a statement.  The silhouette is classic, yet the pattern is bold.  

The shoes though.  Don't even get me started.  I am obsessed with these shoes.  I want to wear them every single day.  Not only are they incredibly on trend with the fringe and lace-up ties, but they are also suede!! You all know my obsession with suede...  Though I must admit, I haven't been able to break them in quite yet.
