Lace Up Back Sweater

Sweater ( Express) | Jeans ( Zara) | Booties ( Charlotte Russe) | Bag ( Michael Kors) |
Earrings ( Kendra Scott) | 

Sweaters are one of my favorite pieces of clothing, they can be dressed up or down and you're always cozy when you're wearing them! As much as I love my sweaters I like them to have something that makes them different, and this  sweater I wore last week has the perfect lace up back detail to make it standout.

Trendy sweaters right now have a lot of sleeve details, but this one caught my eye because it looks like a regular sweater until you turn around and have some really cool lace up detail!  My sweater is currently on sale for under $30 and  my booties are on sale for under $15! The coolest part of the booties is that they have perforated stars all over the bootie.

This could be a great look to wear to a casual Thanksgiving dinner :)

Fall Essentials


When I woke up this morning it was 49 degrees and I could not contain my excitement!! It is finally, slowly starting to feel like Fall! I decided to round up my top 10 fall essentials, the best part is all of these items are under $75!!

Fall Essentials

1. Layering Necklaces: I own this set ($42) from Baublebar and I reach for it almost every day! These dainty pieces are the perfect finishing touches of any outfit. The best part of this trend is that you don't have to go out and spend your money on it, just pick a couple of necklaces from your closet in different lengths and pair them together!

2. Sneakers: Athleisure is back stronger than ever this fall! It is a great wait to be comfy and still look cute! I wore these sneakers($60) while I was in NY last weekend and it was the perfect shoe to walk around the city!

3. Metallic Accessories: Metallic accessories are everywhere this Fall, the best part about this trend is that you can just dip your toes on this trend with small accessories like these earrings ($48) or go big with these shoes ($23.34) and they also come in rose gold!!

4. Pops of Red: Red is the color of the Fall! You can just wear pops of red your make up; this red lipstick ($27) is one of my favorite ones to wear all year around! Or make this color the star of your outfit!

5. Hoops:  Please tell me I am not the only one who was obsessed with hoops in High School! Well good news (or bad if you hated them back then), hoops are the accessory of the fall and they come in all sizes and finishes! If you don't want to invest a lot on this trend I recommend getting these sets, they come in gold, silver and rose gold and they are only $6! If you want to invest a little more on this trend, these hoops ($85) from Kendra Scott are my favorite!

6. Velvet Accessories: This Fall season is going to be all about textures, and velvet is the one textures that I have been seeing everywhere! You can go all in with these gorgeous booties ($24.59) or just add a touch of velvet with this clutch ($35) or these earrings ($5).

7. Moto Jakets: I believe this should be a staple in your wardrobe every Fall, but the styles this year are so much fun! They come embroidered ($40), studded ($43), and colorful ($24)! You can pick any style that suits your personality! I am thinking about adding this one ($43) to my collection.

8. Military Vest: This is a staple in my closet starting in the Fall all the way until the end of spring. I love pairing my vest with basic long sleeve tees or t-shirt dresses. It is perfect for layering during those months that it is not cold enough for a jacket but it is a little chilly outside. This vest ($27) is very similar to the one I own and it is under $30, this ($29.99) is another good option from target.

9. Fun Sweaters: Sweaters this season are all about oversized sleeves, fun ruffles and cool details. Express has a lot of cool sweaters that fit all the trends this season and the best part is that you can dress all of these sweaters up or down! This one ($31) , this one ($60)and this one ($60) are my top picks for Fall sweaters this season.

10. Basic long sleeve tees: This is a staple in my closet all year long, they are the perfect basic to build your outfit on. I wear them under jackets, under vest or by themselves. My favorite basic long sleeve tees are from loft ($24.50); they are reasonably priced, good quality and come in a variety of colors.

A couple of years ago some of our college friends made a powerpoint presentation for us on the reasons why we should move to Houston. It was really well thought out and it almost convinced us, but at the time my job was in Central Texas.

Fast forward a couple of years and we have spend a lot of time visiting our friends Aaron and Molly and hanging out in the Houston area. Houston has always been good to us, and some of the most memorable nights has been spent in Houston along with a few of our best friends. Houston has such a special place in our hearts that we even took our engagement pictures there.

The past couple of days Hurricane Harvey has done a lot of damage to the Texas Gulf coast and to the city of Houston. Our fellow Texans are hurting at this time and they need all the help they can get. Below I have a couple of ways you can help the people affected by Hurricane Harvey.

1. Texas Diaper Bank - Here

2. Salvation Army - Here

3. JJ Watt Houston Flood Relief Fund - Here

4. Houston SPCA - Here

Dress |  Shoes |  Sunglasses |  Cuff |

Today is the last day of July which is also the last day of my birthday month! This year I turned 27 and officially entered my late 20s! I decided to write a list of the 27 things I have learned in my 27 years, and what I am looking forward to this year.

27 Things i've learned in my 27 years:

1) You don't have to fit a mold, being unique is way more fun.

2) Do what makes you happy, and that doesn't have to be just one thing.

3) Sports have a special way to break your heart, but they can also bring immense joy.

4) There is such thing as being too nice, be nice but don't let people walk all over you.

5) Don't let society harden you up.

6) People are going to judge if you do or if you don't, so make them worth their while :)

7) Being interested in fashion doesn't make you superficial, people can be multifaceted, fashion is just one of your many layers.

8) You don't have to have everything figured out, a little mystery is a good thing.

9) You don't have to follow someone else timeline, everything happens at different time for different people.

10) You're never too old to try/start something new.

11) If you are the smartest person in the room, you're in the wrong room.

12) Even if you don't think you're qualified go for it! You might surprise yourself.

13) Do things for yourself, not for the praise of other people.

14) Travel as often as you can, but also value your down time.

15) When it comes to food; try everything once. If you don't like it at least you can say you tried it.

16) It's always great to have conversations with people with opposite views, you can always learn something.

17) We don't always get to choose our family; but God makes us part of our families for a reason.

18) Always work hard, it will pay off when you least expect it. 

19) Make an effort to keep in touch with friends, it doesn't matter if they live down the street or across the world.

20) Marry a man that makes you laugh even when you're mad. 

21) Don't compare yourself to others, everyone's situations are different. If you compare yourself to others you're never going to be good enough.

22) It is ok to get mad, but don't hold on to that anger. If you're upset take a couple of minutes to be upset and then let it go!

23) Don't let what others think of you stop you from doing something you're passionate about.

24) Find a hobby or a creative outlet, something that helps you escape the stress of adulthood. 

25) Always say please and thank you, mom was right those three words can go far.

26) Be proud of where you came from, it has made you who you are.

27) A great outfit can turn your day around!

This year I am looking forward to traveling a lot more, and spending time with my family!

I hope y'all enjoyed this post, it is different from my usual content but I had so much fun writing it!! :)

Embroidered Details

Every season there is one trend that I am obsessed with since the beginning, and this summer that trend was embroidered clothing, shoes, and accessories. There is something about embroidery that takes a piece to the next level. This is also a trend I believe will carry over well into the Fall and Winter.

I have rounded up my favorite embroidered items under $50 and a lot of them are easy to transition into the Fall!!
