Mid November

I know I've been slacking here! I've been working on condensing my thoughts/recommendations on Fairbanks, so I can share them with you.

I've also been patiently waiting for the weather to cool down. It seems like Dallas can't make up it's mind if wants to stay warm or cool.

I've been sticking to super light sweaters and long sleeve cotton blouses.

Blouse: Dillard's - $40
Jeans: Rag & Bone via Intermix - $98
Flats: Forever 21 - $15
Handbag: Ted Baker Maisie Bag - Gifted

I really love this top because of the layered look and mixed textures. I'll be sad when it gets too chilly for me to wear it.

Happy November!

October was a super busy month for me! Lots of work and travel; it'll be nice to get back into the swing of blogging. I have plenty of stories and outfits to share with you guys!

After being in Alaska for a week, it's safe to say that I really missed Dallas. I missed the warm weather and vibrant city life.

A typical weekend for me calls for an outing to lunch or out strolling in Deep Ellum/Bishop Arts; very different from the small poplulated Fairbanks.


Cameo Necklace: handme down
Blouse: Ro & De via thrifted $2
Leggings: Cotton On $10 (SAME)
Flats: Gap $35 (SAME)
Tote: Ted Baker via gifted (SIMILAR)



It's still pretty hot, so I'm making my outfits look a bit more fall by wearing darker colors. The Ro & De blouse is that perfect oxblood color and lightweight enough to wear until it gets cold.  It's definately a great color to make black pop. The blouse came from this thrift haul.

I'm hoping temperatrues will cool down (but not Alaska cool) enough for me to wear lightweight long sleeve pieces. 

Can't wait to share my Alaskan stories with you!

Another Day in Stripes

Solids, neutrals, and stripes have become my main go to picks. I don't crave color and novelty prints like I used to; funny how one's preferences change. Stripes are what make up the most of my closet, I'm thinking it might be time for change, but in the meantime I'll stick to my stripes.

I finally wore this pinstripe dress that I thrifted at Family Thrift Center Outlet from this haul. 


and here's how I wore it out! I paired it with a black double breasted blazer vest to balance out the pinstripes and added strappy heels to dress it up. 

Dress: Liz Claiborne - Family Thrift Center Outlet $2
Vest: Banana Republic (Org. $120) $45 (Same!)
Purse: Chanel? - Thrifted $1
Heels: Charlotte Russe - $29 (Same!)

What's your favorite print/pattern to wear?

Sweater Weather?

I'm not sure if I've ever shown you guys this sweater that I've had for at least 5 years! I love that it can easily be spring or fall. I'm pretty excited to start layering, but it still hasn't cooled enough. Luckily, I'm off to Alaska in a couple of weeks and I'll be able to layer all I want! Hopefully, my outfits won't be too blegh!

Sweater - Paul & Joe - old!
Jeans - Rag & Bone - $98
Flats - Gap - $35 (Same!) 

Do you have a staple for both spring and fall?

Last Days of Summer

Fall is approaching, but the days seem to only get hotter. By the recent OOTD's I've shared, you can tell I live in jeans. (Weird right?) 

I had completely forgotten about this blouse that I purchased during winter. It's super lightweight and has pretty, detailed embroidery in gold thread. I wish I would have worn it sooner! 
Blouse: Christophe Sauvat via Intermix - $50 (Org. $198)
Jeans: Rag & Bone - $98 ($210)

Do you have any favorite summer tops?
