Still Summer In Stateside Shirtdress

When I have those, “I have nothing to wear” moments, I always reach for a shirtdress. Not that they are a throwaway outfit but because they are simple, put-together, and always appropriate.  They are the first thing (besides a white t-shirt) that I throw in my suitcase before a trip. Depending on the material you can usually dress them up or down and get away with wearing them just about anywhere. When I bought this Stateside Shirtdress I debated about keeping it. Finally I pulled the tag off and just went with it. Thank the fashion Gods! I have worn this dress more times than not. No joke, my husband now calls it my “uniform.”

Because every closet needs a good shirtdress, I have found a few below that I think would be amazing! And all are under $150! Also, something to remember, a shirtdress looks great with sandals now and a scarf, boots, and blazer later (or even under a sweater)! So don’t be scared to spend money on one in the late summer. They are always a staple!

Outfits • The Shirtdress

love a good shirtdress! They are the easiest thing to throw on and look put together. And overthinking never comes in to play. My kind of outfit! I came across this shirtdress (which is under $50) and loved the details – high/low hem, paneling in the back, and silk look. It is perfect to wear now in the warmer months and to wear with boots and a scarf in the coming cooler months. shop it here

Outfits • Bumble Boost and Me

I was so completely honored when my bestie Alex, Bumble’s marketing guru, asked me to be in a Bumble video. Not only is Bumble the most forward-thinking and legit dating app, they also come up with the most unique and eye-catching marketing concepts. To be a part of anything Bumble is to be a part of something great! The video I was helping with is the newly launched Bumble Boost.

Bumble Boost
The concept? Genius. They get it. We are all busy. There aren’t enough hours in the day (you can say that again), and sometimes 24 hours isn’t enough time to make the first move. This is where Bumble Boost comes in. Now you can enhance your Bumble experience and buy more time, so to speak. When you upgrade to Bumble Boost, you can rematch with expired connections (like I did in the video), instantly match with people who have already liked you, and extend an extra 24 hours to give yourself more time to craft the perfect first message on your time! Live your life, Bumble at your leisure.

at home • The Read

Oh my gosh! I just started this book on my last trip and I can’t put it down. The Girl in Cabin 10 is a page turner! Being someone who isn’t a huge reader it is so fun to find a book I enjoy so much. I am only 25% of the way through and can’t put it down. If you are in need of a new read and like thrillers, definitely consider this one. Oh, and be ahead of the game as Reese Witherspoon will soon be turning it into a movie! shop it here

Outfits • The Gucci Shoe

I love you, I love you not, I love you… Let me count all the ways I love this shoe! Its red vibrance, the heel height, the “wearability” and the classic style! However, I love you not, for your price tag! Even though I know these are out of my price range I find myself googling them every day and dreaming about them at night! They are so gorgeous and would be amazing with cut-off jeans and a t-shirt! A real show stopping shoe! Shop this shoe and see the other colors here

Beauty • Caudalie Beauty Elixer

One of the best things about a girls trip is trying out all their beauty products. And on a recent one I discovered Caudalie Beauty Elixer. Oh my radiance. Basically it is a dull skin, ass kicking, radiance boosting, unicorn because my skin looked and felt amazing! If there is one thing summer time skin needs, it is Caudalie Beauty Elixer! Put it over or under make-up and use it whenever you need a pick-me-up. Life.Changing.


I can’t say that I have spent much time in the desert but it is a place I always wanted to visit. In college my roommate and best friend was from Arizona. She was studying abroad a semester and needed to bring her car back home. I happily agreed to tag along on the drive from Dallas to Scottsdale. I couldn’t wait to see a different part of the country. I remember thinking how much I loved the landscape. My friend, who grew up with it, was less than impressed. But I loved the wide open spaces, the muted colors, and the random mountain of red rock. Growing up in Houston this was all so new and beautiful to me.  All I could think about were the cowboys and Indians back in the 1800’s and how they would ride their horses on those same exact fields. I know that sounds nuts, but I love making up stories and relating them back to history.

This past weekend my husband surprised me with a trip to Arizona to check off some major bucket list items (more coming on that). To me, desert style means boots, hats, scarves, and minimalist clothing. I know the desert can get cool at night so I tied a denim shirt around my waist in case I might need it. The desert and our trip was so calming and re-centering. I can’t wait to go back!
