Happy December! I hope everyone had a wonderful November! I feel like I ate thanksgiving dinner all month long. I am using this month to get back in line with my goals. One of those was to be a healthier person. I love to over indulge when it comes to food and drink. A little here and there is fine, but all in moderation right???
Most of the country is now in full fall mode with their PSLs and plaid already making appearances. However, here in Texas it is still going to be about 90º pretty much until October. That means you won’t see me in true fall wear until then. Instead, I will be mixing summer pieces with fall staples. My favorite way to make a summer outfit feel fall appropriate is by choosing the right accessories. You can wear your favorite summer outfits and simply swap the jewels to give it a new vibe (like these fun pieces from Tribe + Glory!) READ MORE »
To say that I am excited for the second Dallas Dîner en Blanc is a complete understatement. Dîner en Blanc is a worldwide event in which people from all over get together for a secret all white picnic. We had so much fun at the inaugural event last year that we forgot to stop and take pictures. One of the main things that stressed me out last year was what to wear. You, however, have no reason to worry! I am here to help you pick the perfect Dîner en Blanc outfit! Here are three simple guidelines to looking your very best at Dîner en Blanc:
- Find something that makes you feel comfortable and beautiful. For me that means something lightweight. (Dallas, TX in September. Yup, still HOT!)
- Wear a comfortable pair of shoes. I cannot stress this enough. If you are going to be wearing heels make sure you bring along a pair of white flats or sandals for all the walking. You never know where the secret location might be.
- Bring the fun with all the accessories. My biggest regret last year was buying the biggest fascinator and then forgetting it at home. I was really so sad. It gave my outfit that extra je ne sais quoi.
Now to the important part… Where to shop!
Confession. I am a lipstick hoarder. I love lip colors. I will try them all without a second thought. Something about having on lipstick instantly makes you look more put together.
I can’t be the only one that carries six different colors around?? These are my favorites you will find me in all summer long! I am especially loving lip stains this year. I love knowing that I will swipe it on, go have drinks with my friends, and not look like a hot mess by the end of the night.
My sister is still in school, living the broke college kid dream, and I was headed for a vacation, AKA budget killer. So we decided to go on a little adventure in Austin to come up with some ways to have fun on a budget. So with $50 in our pockets we set out on a little outing. This is what we learned.
