what to wear?

Hey y’all,

Sorry I’ve been gone the past couple of days – it has been busy! Tuesday night Collin and I were at our friends house all night for dinner and some games. We ended up staying really late and had a lot of fun out there! Then yesterday I finally got some quality time at the pool, a great workout, and Collin made us an AMAZING dinner.

So today, after I woke up I had to sit in on a magazine interview for work and run a few errands. I’m finally back in for the day!

I’m starting to really think about my cousins’ wedding I’ll be attending in a couple of weeks. I was talking to my mom the other day about what we should wear because it isn’t your typical wedding. It’s being held in the Stockyards and seems like it will be more casual than most. Initially I thought a maxi-dress would be super adorable – but my mom and I are both VERY short!

I’ve actually never worn a maxi-dress because of how short I am, but I would love to try it! Here are some of my favorites from Nordstrom that I think might work for us short people for the season:

Fire Bustier Maxi Dress (Juniors)

Splendid Stripe Faux Wrap Maxi Dress

Fire Strapless Print Chiffon Maxi Dress (Juniors) (Online Only)

 

These all have defined waistlines that would help from the dreaded no-leg image.

What do you think about maxi-dresses and height?

 

 

Flashback Friday

I have noticed A LOT of leather on the runways lately and have seen leather products filling up clothing stores. It feels like I’m back in the 90’s with the leather pants trend!

One thing I actually just noticed today really blowing up the retail world is leather summer dresses – and it definitely caught my eye.

Here are a few adorable leather dress finds of mine..

What do YOU think about the trend? Will you be buying in this summer season?

 

 

Happy hump day!

Its officially ONE WEEK until I’ll start working on the local fashion week and I am BEYOND excited! This is such an amazing opportunity to get experience in fashion and it’s unlike anything I’ve ever done before. Then.. Immediately after I finish working Thursday night’s show I’ll have just a few hours of sleep before driving down to my hometown in Texas and flying off to D.C.! I’m so excited to have two days in D.C. followed by 3 days in NYC and another 2 days in TX – a much needed vacation!!

But, preparing for a vacation definitely wouldn’t be complete without some new wardrobe essentials – especially with big plans like Broadway and a birthday party!

Here are my new items:

Forgive me for the messy layout, but it’s the best I could do. First I got three items from hautelook. The red dress has a gorgeous cutout back and is WOW Couture. Then, next to it, I have an adorable top by Whitney Eve. I also ordered Ellen Tracy heels in nude on the top left from that website as well. I got ALL THREE of those items for $80 – unbeatable! If you haven’t signed up.. DO IT. now.

Then, I had made a return to Forever 21 the other day without realizing that it’s impossible to actually make a return there. So, they gave me 24$ in store credit and I went back today on a search for some high quality clothing from there. I walked out with the adorable heels on the top right and paid only 5$ more than my store credit. I’m obsessed with these shoes because I’ve never had colorful, spring wedges like these. Here’s a better picture of it:

Then, I couldn’t resist going into Charlotte Russe for some 5$ sunglasses that you might be able to see in the picture of all the clothes if you squint really hard and look under the shoes.
