 Hi readers !! Quick post today as I have a crazy amount of work going on this week. No rest for the weary, right? Colorful tie-dye maxi dresses are all the hype right now and I snagged this one from Cotton Island (a local boutique in Plano/Dallas). If you’re in the local area and have never visited, you must! If not, luckily you can still purchase from their Instagram 🙂

The girls are the sweetest there and I’ve been going since I was in HS. They have a super fun boho/festival selection right now and I couldn’t leave on my vacay without this dress. It’s so soft & the perfect length (thanks to the adjustable straps).

Missing the Dominican Republic so bad right now. Ahh take me back!!

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC : ROMPIN’

If you haven’t already gone on spring break vacay, it’s quickly approaching. I have to tell y’all about my recent visit to the Dominican Republic — I’m in love with this place!  We were there for a destination wedding (read more that in this post) and stayed at the Casa de Campo resort (more than spectacular/highly recommend it). The landscapes are incredible & the homes located on the resort are absolutely breathtaking! I was obsessed with this particular home, so we shot this look on our way to the beach one day. The blue door & fountains are everything to me.

…and so is this Seafolly Romper. When it comes to beach days, I like to keep my look simple. Something I can slip on-and-off fairly easy. First, this printed romper is the perfect pair to a basic (or solid colored) bikini. It’s also comfortable and easy to slip on or off. I love the side slit details on the bottom portion! I’m wearing an XS here, so I would say it runs pretty true to size.

All this island talk makes me think it’s time to take another beach vacay 🙂 Any recommendations or favorite beaches you’ve been to? Would love to hear from y’all and travel somewhere new!

XO.

It’s no secret that I love distressed denim. 99% of the time I’d rather purchase a pair of jeans with holes rather than ones without. Older people always ask me that ridiculous question, “did you pay for those holes?”….absolutely, I did.

Denim is one of my most coveted sections of my wardrobe (second to shoes) because they’re my comfort zone. For me, it’s part of my go-to look I discussed in this recent post. I RARELY get rid of my denim, because I know at some point they’ll be used again. Hang on to your denim, TRUST. There are 3 things I love most in a good pair of distressed denim; soft hand, a little stretch, & good holes. The next best thing? When your denim purchase doesn’t break the bank. I typically buy designer denim (only because my hips/legs are not proportional to standard sizing & they just seem to fit me better) but I recently bought these (under $70/selling out quick) for spring/summer because I have them in black (worn in this post) and I’m obsessed. The ones I’m wearing above cost me a pretty penny, but I’ve had them for 2.5 years now and worn them a million times (so obviously they’re worth it). My next two purchases will be these & these!

P.S. If you’re wanting the same look for an even more affordable price ($24-$50 range), there’s tons of good options here 🙂

Happy St.Patty’s Day y’all!!

A quick/way overdue post today on my obsession with leopard print (and furs of course) for you guys today! What woman doesn’t love this print? I love how this leopard print fur vest adds a little bit of sexy to any look. As promised, I’ve been keeping my out for furs that go on sale and I’ve found PLENTY! I’ve included some of my other favorite leopard print fur vests that are ALL on SALE below!

St.Patty’s Day is just around the corner, but I’ll be celebrating early so I’m looking forward to this weekend! I’m heading down to Houston to see my sister and we’re going to a pub crawl so that should be wild/crazy fun. Do y’all have any fun plans for St.Patty’s?

This is what I like to call an ‘Off Duty’ look — your go-to outfit when you have nowhere to be/nothing to do. If I didn’t have to leave my hotel room and bare the freezing temps, rest assured I would’ve stay in my PJ’s…but it was our only day off in NYC, so we took full advantage of it. And by full advantage I mean bottomless brunch with new Dallas blogger friends of Selah and Sam, roaming the streets or NYC, shopping, and doing everything we could to stay warm while doing so!

When I have nowhere important to be & I’m not taking blog photos, my every day look is pretty simple. I totally believe less is MORE (…well not always, but here yes).  In true tomboy fashion– jeans + basic tee +comfortable shoes = my go-to (I had to swap my tee for a sweater here because it was FREEZING cold). Something easy to throw on, comfortable, and doesn’t take a lot of thought. I hoard basic items in my closet because I know I will get the most use out of them! Oh, and anything soft or cozy…I can’t resist.

P.S.Did I mention how cold it was during NYFW?? I couldn’t feel my face while shooting these photos!!!!

What is your go-to off duty look? I would love to hear, please share in the comments below! XO.

CURRENTLY CRUSHING: FRENCH CONNECTION

French Connection 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11

If you haven’t seen French Connection’s new Spring 2015 collection, this is what you’ve been missing out on. Above are my favorite picks (hard to even choose because it’s all so dreamy). Can we talk about how amaze this colorful splatter print is? I’ll take one of each style please!

I’m trying to start incorporating more simple staple pieces into my wardrobe & this pastel blue two piece set (top & bottom) are clearly at the top of my wish-list. I’m probably stating the obvious because I’m such a tomboy at heart, but the simplicity of a menswear tailored (2 piece matching) suit is everything to me! Lastly, I’m currently obsessing over these patent Ronan shoe boots that I took with me to a New York Fashion Week and wore in a recent post here. I got so many compliments on these!! If you get them, I recommend going a full size up. Happy Monday loves, thank you for stopping by! XO.
