So long summer… well, it will be a while until we will be enjoying Fall weather in Dallas. Do you have any fun Labor Day plans? We decided to stay in town and soak up the last bit of summer by playing tennis, soaking up some pool time and even treating myself to a little spa day. Since we are having a low key weekend, I am planning on shopping some of the good sales. I narrowed down some of my favorite finds and the top 5 end of summer sales happening right now….Read more
Ready or not, it’s here again: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. While I love a good sale, I have been following a less is more method of shopping this year. This philosophy has really allowed me too narrow in on what pieces I reach for in my closet, what fits my figure, and what’s worth the investment. I did a deep dive on all of the items in the sale and was really selective on the pieces I chose. THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE starts today (for card holders only––the public can start shopping on July 19th). Y’all the pieces in the sale are goood this year!
Vince Cashmere Sweater | Mules | Silk Midi Skirt | Cream Crewneck Sweater | Blue Crewneck Sweater | Mother Denim | Jo Malone Candle Set | Ryder Cardigan | Fuzzy Jacket | White Cropped Sweatshirt | Nike Leggings | Cozy Tan SweaterRead more
We have officially hit peak swimsuit season and I have been pulling out my favorites. I’ve talked about my love for summer a lot on ADOD and spending time by the pool may be one of my favorite reasons. This probably has something to do with growing up in Scottsdale and the only relief we got in the summer was spending hours playing in the pool. My love for swimsuits started early on in life––I have always been super particular, just ask my mom. My girlfriends worked at Everything But Water in high school, which led me down a dark path to designer swimsuits at a young age and I’ve never looked back. My swimsuit philosophy is: two new suits a year (one in Resort- if we have a beach trip, and one in the summer).Read more
Friday marked the official start to summer and we are sure feeling the heat here in Texas. Since we will be spending most of the summer in town, I plan on spending the weekends in the pool (with a huge sun hat (or maybe a visor, thoughts? and lots of sunscreen––a new favorite!) and wearing all the breezy sundresses for late night dinners with friends.
There is something special about summer nights. Maybe, it’s the long days when the sun doesn’t disappear until 9pm or everyone’s relaxed attitudes due to the increase in Vitamin D. Whatever it may be, summer has always been my favorite season.Read more
I can never say no to a good sale and honestly over half of my wardrobe is from Shopbop now. After spending my time really cleaning out my closet last year, I’ve noticed filling it with buying classic, quality pieces has allowed me to have less, but wear more. Plus, I don’t have an urge to donate my entire wardrobe at the end of the season. ;)Read more
You know I am not really one for big trends. I typically find myself staying true to the classics, but a few years ago I fell in love with this Dôen basket bag (sorry, it’s no longer available) and have never looked back. My shelf is now filled with different styles, colors and sizes. Since most straw bags are more affordable than the average designer handbag, they are almost guilt free. ;)Read more
Hi Friends! I hope you had a lovely weekend. We had the best weekend thanks to some incredible weather, a fun black tie event, and of course, The Oscars last night. Did you watch? I have been playing the Star Is Born soundtrack on repeat today. My creative juices have been flowing lately and I am excited to share some fun, new content with all of you!Read more
I spent the later half of the weekend reorganizing my drawers and came across so many good pieces that I had either 1. forgot about, 2. were tucked away at the bottom of the drawer.Read more
Anyone else feeling refreshed this week? I spent this past weekend catching up on sleep, watching all the Netflix (and taking care of a sick hubby), and finally content planning for the year, so this was the week to get back on track. Only a few weeks late to that January reset.Read more
