The Transition Outfit

Can I just be honest for a second. I have been looking at my favorite online stores (Shopbop, Nordstrom, Zara, Net-a-Porter) every day for the past few weeks and to say I am uninspired is an understatement. This time of year is always so hard, especially in Texas. The temperature changes probably 20 degrees every other day. One day it is 80 and rainy, the next it is 55 and sunny. So this being said, I totally get why designers, shall we say, have their hands tied this time of year.

That being said, I am so happy to have pieces in my closet that work both in the winter, as well as the summer. Throw on a loose fit jean (these are under $100), a sneaker, and a sweater (love this selection) and you have the perfect transition outfit. Having a closet full of items that are classic and minimal makes it easier to mix-and-match through the year. Just some food for thought 🙂

Outfit Details // Blank Denim “Ripped jeans” (under $100), Superga Platform sneakers on major sale under $100 (in leather here), Everlane 100% Cashmere sweater ($100), Madewell scarf sold out (on sale  in red here)

Skyler Baty Monograms

Skyler Baty is not only one of the most energetic, fun, happy, and kind people you could wish to meet, she is also extremely talented. Her monogram shop has been on my “lust list” for a while, so you can imagine by excitement when she sent me this set for Valentines Day.

I still remember as a child my mom monogramming my diaper covers, dresses, and school accessories. If I ever forgot my name, I didn’t have to look but a few inches to remember. As I got older I grew out of the monogram phase and into the, “I am too cool for that southerness” phase. Now that I am approaching 30, have my home, new name, and own family, I melt when I see a monogram or embroidery. I have become my mother! I dream in embroidery and monograms!

A little on her biz – Skyler’s business is for the modern gift giver who values adding a personal touch. She creates custom designed monograms and embroidered design for linens, napkins, clothing, baby gifts, bags, hats, wedding/bridal party items, and more! For someone like me, who lovesssss hosting parties, having customized monogram napkins really makes the event feel personal and special! They also make for THE BEST gifts (Mothers Day will be here before you know it)!!

Lastly, I couldn’t go without telling you that a portion of all profits from SB Monograms is donated to various Cancer Research Organizations in honor of Skyler’s dad who passed away battling this terrible disease last April. Skyler is a true example and inspiration of what a woman and businesswoman should be! I hope you check out her site and keep her in mind for all of your monogramming needs!

 

Jusqu’à la prochaine fois mes amis!

 

at home • The Pineapple

Since today is all about Skyler I thought I would share a design that is essential for any summer parties – The Pineapple napkin. When hosting, and in life for that purpose, it is the little things that make the biggest impact on people. This Pineapple will leave your guest wondering, “how does she do it?” Your answer? Skyler! shop it here

at home • Hand Painted Vase

It is funny how your priorities change the older you get. I used to laugh at people who would spend their money on vases, now, I can’t get them off of my mind. I love the beautiful and uniqueness of these hand painted vases. They would go perfect on a coffeetable or barcart! shop them here

Outfits • Madewell Scarf

I am obsessed with tying scarves around my neck at the moment. You can look so put together in jeans and a t-shirt if you add this simple accessory! I love this one for spring and with the help of this article I have new styles to try out! buy it here

Spring Trench Coat

For someone who has been blogging for a number of years, coming back after four months feels like an eternity. I always said that I wanted blogging to lead me to another avenue so I didn’t have to do it for forever. And as my wishes were answered (photography has now become my life) I realized that I missed having this little outlet. My little place I can say, do, and post whatever I please. This go around, I am doing the blog just for me! No pressure or expectations, just my little place of happy!

Speaking of happy. Spring is around the corner! Usually, I can’t bare the thought of winter dissipating into spring. This only reminds me that summer is around the corner, and if there is one thing I hate, it is summers in Texas. However, this year I have spring on my mind. The flowy blouses, the tailored pants, and the easy trench coats. I have been busy on Pinterest finding loads of inspiration for the upcoming season. This BB Dakota trench, which is perfect now with jeans, will be paired over a white dress and sneakers (or heels) and with a pair of tailored navy trousers I just purchased. A breezy trench is such a classic piece and a great item to add to your closet!
