Breaking The Rules

Tank: Topshop // Jeans: Topshop // Cardigan: H&M // Booties: Nordstrom // Purse: Kate Spade

This is what I love so much about fashion… breaking the rules and doing what you want! Over the years things have changed, people used to conformed to what were the “fashion rules”, models were skinny and you were seen as the weird one if you didn’t didn’t fit into that category. Now it’s not like that and breaking those boundaries is seen as the “cool” thing! While simply wearing white after labor day might not be the ground breaking, earth shattering thing in the fashion world, it has become more and more of a trend if you will to break this rule.

People don’t want to follow stupid rules and want to find ways to break outside of them! That’s why this year we have found tons of different styles and colors all over NYFW. To say I am loving it is and understatement haha. I love the all white look with a bit of grey to change things up. It makes for a much brighter and less dull fall:)

¬†With the trend to wear white after labor day, it has allowed me to explore more of my wardrobe without filling boxes with items that I won’t be able to wear till next year! Texas is still so so hot, so who says I can’t be wearing a white tank at the start of fall? Call me the rebel but it has been a hot topic for this fall and it is a “trend” I am definitely following!

Hope everyone has a fabulous rest of the week and maybe I have inspired you to break some rules with your outfits;)




Olive Fall!

Dress: Shop The Mint [c/o] // Heels: Steve Madden (Similar HERE) // Hat: Halogen // Purse: Rebecca Minkoff // Lips: MAC Lipstick ‘Rebel’ (My absolute favorite fall lip color!)

If the title doesn’t tell you how excited I am about fall then I don’t know what will haha! I have mentioned before that olive is my favorite color to wear during fall. I think it has something to do with the olive complimenting the red hair really nicely! I am not into wearing all black everything because I love color way to much but olive is a great dark color. It goes really well with burgundy or burnt orange (which I don’t wear much) or even just simple nude!

Shop The Mint has so many adorable pieces for the fall and I was super fortunate enough to pick one and style it for y’all! This one caught my eye immediately. I kept looking for a cute burgundy floppy hat to wear with it but couldn’t find one so I decided to style it with this one! Besides the gorgeous embroidery on the front and back of the dress, I loved the price point! Free People had one similar and that would have broken my bank account but Shop The Mint has it in multiple different colors and for half the price:) Now I think that is a steal!!

We are definitely into that time of year where you wake up to 65 degrees outside, throw a sweater and jeans on then by 2 in the afternoon you are seriously regretting that decision because its 85! This dress is perfect for those days because it can easily be worn with a cute cardi and easily transition into a warmer weather outfit.

How’s everyone doing? I have been on the major struggle bus lately with trying to juggle everything (Grad school, a job, this blog, friends and family) haha but I am slowly getting into a good routine. Trying to do everything really puts into perspective what’s important to you and I am definitely finding that out real quick! Currently living my life by the minute with sticky notes to organize it… yikes! It’s a hot hot mess but good thing this isn’t forever.

Suede On Suede

Top: BP (Similar on SALE HERE) // Skirt: Forever21 // Boots: Sam Edelman // Sunnies: BP // Lips: Mac Lipstick ‘Twig’

Happy Monday! It is finally starting to feel like fall around here (well in the morning it is) and I am getting all the fall feels:) I went to Bath and Body Works last week and picked up a couple of their fall candles which are totally a relaxing for me at the end of each day. Who doesn’t love curling up with a good book with a beautifully lit candle? I have been into this whole “I am going to read before bed” thing which is so unlike me. I have been having huge problems destressing after a long day of go, go, go (like staying awake till 2am worrying about everything I haven’t done) and my mom suggested I read a chapter right before bed to help clear my mind. It has totally helped and I find myself getting better nights sleep because of it.

With fall approaching, I am on the hunt for great staple pieces. Tank tops and basic sweaters are what I am always looking for. I found this sweater and could not resist because of the sleeves! I loved that the sweater was very basic but the sleeves added an extra fun layer:) Also the navy color went perfect with the tan suede skirt! Now that I am trying to link the sweater it is sold out:( But I did find some other great basic color sweaters with fun sleeves that I have linked above for you!

Now on to the best part of the whole outfit… the double suede! At first I did not think I was going to like it but the boots complimented the suede skirt really well! Those boots were definitely made for walking and strutting your stuff, let me tell you! These are last year’s Sam Edelman boots but this year they have a very similar style that was in the NSale. I personally didn’t like this years because the heel wasn’t super flattering and so I snatched last years up for the fall:)
