Hey loves!

As you know, I was in New York a few weeks back for my very first New York Fashion Week (read about it here)! As you can imagine, packing for New York during the winter time is quite a feat. Not only do I need to be stylish, but stay warm as well. I mean, I’m all for fashion, but what I am not gonna do is freeze my butt off! So it was absolutely crucial to have pieces to layer and keep warm in, while enduring the cold while in NYC. Rent The Runway to the rescue!!

 

Rent The Runway is truly a great travel hack because you seriously save so much space in your luggage.  You can rent dresses, accessories, coats, pants and handbags too!! Which to me, is quite important as I am a pro- carry on kind of girl.  I love using packing cubes to save space in my luggage! Whats great about RTR is that you can go online, select your pieces and the date you need them and have them delivered your home, hotel or wherever. When I was in NYC last October, I rented a few dresses for our anniversary shoot and had them delivered to the hotel (see the shoot here and here). After my rental period was up, I simply returned them to the RTR store in NYC. If you are not in New York, don’t worry! You can totally return them via UPS as well. Seriously, how easy is that?!

 

Rent The Runway also has an Unlimited program where you can rent up to three pieces and keep them as long as you like for $139 a month. If you didn’t know, RTR has tons of designer items such as Marissa Webb, Derek Lamb, DVF, Zac Posen and lots more! Free shipping, dry cleaning and you can cancel at any time! So the next time you are planning your vacay and wondering what to wear, just head to RTR and have your selections delivered to you. I linked a few vacay ready pieces from Rent The Runway below.  What a great hack right? Saving luggage space and still slay? You are winning!

 

 

Have you rented from RTR before? I’d love to hear what you rented and how you liked the service!

 

Please share!

The denim jacket is one of those staple items in your closet you don’t really appreciate until you really need it. To be honest, I got rid of the denim jacket I had because I was over it and didn’t feel I needed it. As the saying goes “you don’t know what you got until its gone” rings true. It wasn’t until I was looking for a perfect jacket to complete a look when I realized I needed a denim jacket.  So I purchased this one and I love it. Its the perfect jacket to throw on with anything and go! From jeans, dresses or skirts, the options are endless! I like to roll the sleeves up and stack a few bracelets on for a little extra “umph!” I also loved pairing my black, ripped jeans with the brown, suede over the knee boots and snakeskin bag. Its a great mix of textures and adds a little excitement as well.
Do you still rock a denim jacket? How do you style this classic piece?
Oh, before I forget! I must invite all of my Dallas fashionistas out to a Pop Up Shop event featuring “Luxury Garage Sale” at the “W Hotel- Victory Park,” Sunday, March 6th! Luxury brands such as Chanel, Celine and more will be on sale at great prices. Time to whip out that credit card and shop!
RSVP here for this free event!

Hey lovelies! I have another color combination for you today. Camel and gray looks so good together don’t you agree? Its nothing like a great pair of camel boots and off the shoulder sweater to build a casual but sophisticated look. You guys see me wear these gray jeans ALL the time. Unfortunately, they are no longer sold. I hate that because they are my absolute favorite pair of jeans. I did link a few similar for you below, I hope that helps. The sweater can also be worn as a dress, but I prefer it as a sweater. It’s surprisingly warm considering we shot this look in 30 degree weather… Brrr!!
If you follow me on Instagram, you would know my birthday was on Friday!! I am celebrating 34 years of life on this earth and I am so blessed. Honestly, it feels like the older you get, your birthday becomes “just another day.” But, I don’t take it for granted! As my mom would say, I thank God for life, health and strength! And its so true!! Count your blessings!!
Have you worn any of the color combo’s I posted lately? If so, please tag me on Insta or comment below so I can check you out!! I’d love to see it. See you soon!!

Wearing white in the winter time is considered a faux pas to some. I use to be one of those people who would never wear white in the winter. I can be old school in some ways, but not anymore when it comes to fashion! I’ve learned through my Pinterest and Instagram addiction that white can easily be worn during the colder months. So I scoped out my closet to see what look I could come up with and I think I did pretty well, don’t you agree? This beautiful coat and taupe accents worked well together with the contrast of the white pants. My gorgeous, leather driving gloves were a Christmas gift from my Mother – in – law. To say she did a fabulous job is an understatement!! She also gifted me this shawl coat a few Christmas’s ago and I love it so much. Olivia Pope anyone?
Do you wear white after Labor Day? How do you like to wear it in colder months?
Chat with you Sunday in my next outfit post!!

Happy 2016!!! I am a girl who loves coats! It could be because I grew up in Michigan and every fall, my mom and I would go shopping for new winter coats. I would always get one for school and one for church. Even though I now live in Dallas and our winters are short, I pretty much buy a new coat each year. It’s such a habit and I don’t mind one bit. My mom was tall at 5’9 and I would always envy her ability to wear ankle length coats because they just looked so fabulous on her. She was a fashionista too (Rest in Heaven Mom)! I’m only 5’3-but all legs, however, there aren’t many long coats out there that I can rock without drowning in them. Well, when I spotted this one I knew I had to have it. It’s more of a midi length coat which is perfect for my height. The fact that it has a funnel neck and a gorgeous camel color was icing on the cake! I personally would wear it with heels to give me some height. But, I’ve seen plenty of Pinterest pictures of women wearing coats like this with sneakers and I’m feeling it!
I can’t believe that we are already into a new year. When I started this blog, almost a year ago, I didn’t know if I could fully commit to it. Being a new mom is amazing and challenging at the same time. Also, trying to meet the demands of every day life can be a juggling act. But, the fact is this blog has motivated me like never before! I have so many things that I want to do to take my blog to the next level! I feel that my blog has taken me places, allowed me to meet people and do things that I would have never thought could happen. It’s only the beginning but I am still amazed at how far along I’ve come being a blogger. It’s crazy how certain opportunities have fallen in my lap at the most perfect time. It’s so unreal! It’s as if God is saying, “I told you this was for you!”
When I initially started my blog, I thought, “ok, so you’ll do the blog and that can be an extension of yourself. Something you can do on the side that you’ll enjoy.” Well, scratch that! It means so much more to me than that. My mindset is now “lets go from a blog to a brand!!” I’m ready to get started my friends. Tell me, what are you going to do in 2016 to go to the next level??
Let’s grow together and make it happen!!

Can you believe that Christmas is only days away? I have so much to do and so little time. It’s a little hard to get into the Christmas spirit here in Dallas when the weather is still quite warm. I was excited to head to New York over a week ago to experience some winter weather. Well, was I in for a  surprise when the high was 60 degrees during the time we were there! It was still a little chilly, but perfect weather to layer with fur vests, knee boots and parka jackets. I love layering because you can take off or add on and still be warm, as well as comfortable. I also find its better to carry a smaller bag when layering outfits so that you’re not adding on any additional bulk. This merlot, suede cross body bag was the perfect companion for touring the city. It holds so much and is so easy to throw on and go! I wore it as a cross body and as a clutch for night time attire as well.
I promise to fill you in on more details about my trip to New York very soon! As I said earlier, I have so much to do to prepare for Christmas. So I better let you go and jump on my Christmas shopping ASAP!
See you Tuesday for my last Girlfriends Guide to Gift Giving post. I have a few gift ideas for the Foodie in mind!!
