GIVEAWAY: SPUN SCARVES

SPUN Scarf (c/o) / GAP New Tailored Chambray / J.Crew Pixie Pants (25% off using SHOPNOW) / Rag and Bone Classic Newbury Booties / DVF Clutch via TJ Maxx / Lulu Frost Necklace / Catbird Threadbare Rings / Daniel Wellington Watch / Ray Ban Caravan Sunglasses / Laura Mercier in Truly Red

Scarves are a girls best friend, or at least mine. In the Fall, it is the first accessory I put on not only I keep warm but to add a pop of color to my mostly neutral closet. There are a few staples that I wear on repeat in the Fall including my J.Crew Minie or Pixie Pants (I am loving the leather ones this season), a button down blouse and a pair of booties. Since I keep my uniform pretty standard for work and play, I always add a scarf to switch up this look. I recently came across SPUN by Subtle Luxury, an amazing brand based out of California. Guys, I am telling you their scarves are the best thing I have ever worn; I would say I am somewhat of a scarf snob. They have to be supersoft, not too bulky, but still keep you warm- this girl knows what she wants. The solid colors are ultra saturated so they pop and the printed ones are perfect for a neutral outfit. Even Jessica Alba was spotted in the Cobra print. I am seriously wanting to buy one in every color this season. Don’t worry, you won’t miss out on this amazing find because now is your chance to win your favorite new scarf for the season. You can pick any scard you’d like from this link . Good Luck, and Happy Shopping!

ALL AMERICAN


Doesn’t this outfit just scream Fall?  There is something about a tan and navy color combination that feels so classic and makes me want to go apple picking.  I scored this amazing real leather skirt from one of my favorite top designers at TJMaxx when I was in Dallas.  If you live anywhere by Northpark Mall in Dallas, you much stop across the street for some amazing deals. The largest Runway section I have ever seen!  The entire women’s and beauty department was full of the brands I would buy full price, but literally at a fraction of the price. If you were checking out my instagram, you may have noticed the leather jacket I scored for under $150 (yes, this was a true #maxxinista find).  

When it comes to leather I am very picky. I am all about texture and quality when it comes to all of my clothes, so finding this leather skirt at TJ Maxx is everything.  It feels as soft as butter and the color will work for any occasion. This designer find can be dressed down with a gausey sweater, like the navy one I am wearing above, and some booties.  Or to dress up this look, I would pair my new favorite skirt with a black silk blouse, textured jacket and a great heel.  The trends this Fall are all about mixing textures and volumes, so I love that this classic silhouette will allow me to mix and match with some of my favorite cable knit sweaters and structured tops.  

Another trend this Fall is the All American look (or what I like to call: the 90s are back). During 2013 F/W NYFW many of the top designers were featuring this trend. To add a pop of color and pattern to a mostly neutral look, I suggest tucking in a plaid button down top into a leather skirt to give the look a little edge. I always try to give each of my classic looks a hint of edge and leather is the perfect way to do this. This black quilted leather skirt (from TJ Maxx online) would also be a great ways to give an All American look a little bit of Rock and Roll.  

When I wear a neutral outfit, I am all about the red nail.  I found this color in the beauty department and knew I just needed to have this vibrant color in my collection. Another fun thing I found in the beauty department last week was my favorite pumpkin spiced soaps. I love adding a seasonal touch to my house with festive hand towels and hand soap for our guest bathroom and kitchen.  

Expressing yourself through fashion, and knowing how to put together a great look—at great value, is what being a Maxxinista is all about.  At T.J.Maxx you can score the unexpected to make your own personal style statement. Here’s to rockin’ your real deal.

INSTA LATELY

Sorry for the insta pics, but I decided to not bring my camera on our trip to Dallas and just enjoy.  I just love that city and especially the weather! After arriving late on Friday, we headed straight to dinner at Mi Cocina for some margs and delicious Mexican food, followed by some late night shenanigans at Kung Fu. The whole gang (minus a few in the wedding party) was back together again and I have not laughed so hard in a long time.  The wedding was so beautiful down to every last detail and naturally they had to kick us off the dance floor.  

As of lately:

We made a quick stop at TJ Maxx, and I scored this Rebecca Taylor jacket / A few of you asked where my dress was from- it is BCBG, a few years old / Watched a little football on the plane (Go Cheifs!) / Loving my new Catbird Rings / May or may not have stopped at Wataburger on the way out of town / Enjoying shorts weather / Having too much fun with all of the girls (and I guess Patrick too!)

FALL FINDS FROM DAY TO NIGHT



Is your closet ready for Fall?  This week I headed to TJ Maxx in search for some great Fall finds to stock up on this season’s essentials.  This fall, I am all about finding classic pieces that I can wear multiple different ways. Whether it be a lush leather jacket, designer brand handbags, classic trench or super soft cashmere cardigan, nothing gets better than finding investment pieces at affordable prices.  TJ Maxx has been killing it with their selection of brand-name designers throughout the entire store. I browsed through the store twice filling an entire cart of clothes- yes, I had an entire cart full of goodies, I ended up with so many great designer finds. I scored this Cashmere cardigan, yes 100 percent cashmere, for just a fraction of the price. It is so soft and the perfect layer for Fall, I especially love the light grey color. If you haven’t noticed I am on a total neutral kick. My best accessory when wearing neutrals is red lipstick. Did you know that TJ Maxx has some of the top beauty brands? I even found my shampoo/conditioner and lotion brand in the aisles for just a fraction of the price.   

There is something about a piece of clothing that you can wear from day to night that really makes it worth the investment, but instead of breaking the bank, I ended up spending a fraction of the price for the same designer quality.  My Fall daytime look includes a pair of jeans, a super-soft tee, and loafers or flats.  My favorite flats this Fall are smoking slippers, I went with a classic color so I could pair them with black denim, coated denim or a pair of skinny ankle jeans.  

For date night or dinner during a Fall night, I like to bring a light cardigan so we can sit outside under the heaters or by a fire.  Pairing this cashmere cardi with a pair of black leggings and booties keeps this looks casual and cool.  Add some dainty gold jewelry, and a great designer handbag- yes I found this one at TJ Maxx, to make the look complete.  Can we talk about this purse? The leather is like butter and the size is the perfect carryall.  

Apparently Fall is the new wedding season, this Fall I will be attending six weddings in just three months. Black, tan, and grey are my go to’s for dresses. Since some of the weddings will be outside, bringing a cardigan is essential.  I also found these pointed- toe sandals when I was shopping the other day. I love how the two-toned shoes look with a basic black dress.  I also added a gold and enamel bracelet that I scored for only $20! It normally retails for over $100, talk about a steal! 

Expressing yourself through fashion, and knowing how to put together a great look—at great value, is what being a Maxxinista is all about.  At T.J.Maxx you can score the unexpected to make your own personal style statement. Here’s to rockin’ your real deal.

SHOES, SHOES, SHOES

In the last couple weeks, I started a new hobby….something called collecting shoes. This hobby has been known to be quite fun. Honestly, I was really in want/need of some new Fall shoes. When it comes to shoes, I am all about the classics. Flats, booties and heels are my three go to’s for Fall, which is probably the same for most of you (:. I think these four pairs may be my favorite of all time.

Since my work wardrobe is so casual; I can wear jeans everyday of the week if I choose, so I normally wear either my Joie Day Dreaming Loafers, Sam Edelman Booties, or my white Converse sneaks. When the weather cools down, my go to outift is black Minnie pants, a boyfriend style flannel and my new favorite Rag and Bone Newbury Booties that I picked up at Baldwin this past weekend. Another Fall essential is a pair of closed toed heels. I am loving the pointed toe for Fall to elongate my ever so stubby legs. Since I have about 10 weddings before the year is over, I love the neutral color of these BCBGeneration heels that I can wear with a couple of different dresses. What are your favorite Fall shoes this season? I am sure excited about my four new pairs!

What a weekend! I know it is Tuesday already but Monday really just flew right by, I did not even have a second to blink.  We finally made some major progress at the house this weekend. Hanging art and getting ourselves a little more organized was so nice.  The pool opened on Friday so of course I had to take a half day and enjoy a little R&R and few cocktails in the sun. I am loving my new suit.

We snagged some fresh peonies from TJ’s on Saturday and picked up Bill the Buffalo from the framer.  How do you think it turned out? Side note: please excuse my bookshelves and lack of sofa pillows- they are still in the works.  The talented, Rebecca Atwood is making a custom pillow for the chair and I cannot wait to see it.
