Happy Monday, love! To say the least, this "winter" weather has been crazy, which does make the clothing for this season pretty unpredictable. Here in Texas, it has been sunny and 75 one day and then a chilly 50 degrees the next. This outfit is great for this crazy weather because the turtle neck t-shirt is so light and won't get too warm! The vest adds warmth for a chilly day but can easily be taken off if the weather warms up. I also have to note that these high waisted jeans are my newest obsession. They are Hudson brand which is such great quality and super soft denim, they're so comfy that they basically feel like I'm wearing leggings!

I'll be enjoying this rainy Monday by binge watching my new favorite show, This is Us, with my mom and sisters. Lazy days are my favorite! I would love to hear from some of you what your favorite binge worthy T.V. show is in the comments below! I hope you have a great week!

Winter Blush

Winter Blush Happy Sunday, my dear!

Okay, I know that it's not quite technically considered winter yet BUT it is cold outside and Christmas is in full swing sooo I say it feels a lot like winter! There are few things I love more than pretty pale pinks and this outfit has me swooning! So often it seems that around the holidays and in the winter that colors are restricted to dark shades but a winter blush is not something to neglect! I loved the look of this pale pink sweater paired against the dark jeans and black choker. Y'all, don't even get me started on these shoes. I was obsessed the moment I found them! These precious blush kitty flats are too cute for words! They are also a fantastic (and cheaper) alternative to the designer kitty loafers by Charlotte Olympia. 

I'm also loving my new tote from Barrington Gifts. It is the perfect neutral that looks great with every outfit. As you might've seen in my previous posts, I love the St. Anne tote from Barrington Gifts. It just has so much space for toting around anything you might need but without consuming your whole body. I really cannot recommend this tote enough AND it's customizable (which would make a great Christmas gift).

I've linked all outfit details from this look at the bottom of the post!

French Blue

french blue I am OH so excited to be wearing this outfit because I just adore it! It brings me many fond memories, as well. I stumbled upon this midi skirt while shopping along the Champs-Élysées in Paris last summer with my family! It's always so fun to shop while traveling (especially abroad!) because it makes the pieces that you buy so unique and special knowing that you could only find it in that location! This skirt is from Tara Jarmon and since it's from last summer, it is sadly no longer available BUT I have found one from LuLu's that is almost identical and priced so well at under $50! Also, I love love love this collared bow shirt and it sort of made me feel like Madeline from one of my favorite childhood books. She was French so I don't at all mind being compared to a children's book character! :)

Dinner Downtown

dinner downtown Since I'm at home for a few weeks before I head back to school, I've been trying to go to my favorite restaurants before I leave. Tonight I went to a cute little restaurant downtown that has the best menu! It's one of those that you can't go wrong with whatever you end up ordering. The restaurant is a place that you can dress pretty casual, but for dinner I like to turn it up notch. So, I went with this ensemble that portrays the perfect balance of casual cute. Plus, this outfit gave me the perfect opportunity to wear these new heels that I've been just dying to wear!

Y'all...I haven't even told you the best part. These Tory Burch heels that I'm totally obsessed with are on SALE! You just have to snag them before they're gone! They also come in a nude color and have the gold on the inside of the heel that adds some major sass. This tank has been a favorite of mine as well because it's a two-tone with the black lace on navy silk. I also love how the ripped jeans add a bit of edginess to the outfit. My clutch is no longer available but I'll link a similar and super cute one below.

Thanks for reading love, I hope you're having a wonderful start to your week!
