I am in full fall mode. Over the weekend, the 90 degree weather cooled to a nice 70 degrees so I opened all of the windows, lit my fall candle, and decorated the house for my favorite holiday, Halloween (see pictures on Instagram). I can’t explain what this time of year does to me but all of my sense are in heaven. The smells are divine, the changing leaves are beautiful, and the cooler weather feels amazing. Every time I see or smell hints of fall the best memories come flooding in and I am instantly in my happy place.

All of this “fallness” leads me to this outfit. I have been saving it for a day that seemed appropriate and that day has come. With the combination of burgundy and yellow, it seemed so perfect to post on a day that I am really feeling the season. Burgundy is such a rich, classic color, it seems to come back year after year. I think it is a smart investment for any closet, which is why I picked some of my favorite pieces for you to shop below.

I love watching movies like Breakfast at Tiffany’s, An Education, and Scatter my Ashes at Bergdorf’s because you feel completely transported into this  plethora of everything amazing. The fashion and style in each leave you feeling happy and inspired. When I am watching them I feel like I am walking into a closet that I can choose anything I would like. Once the credits roll, I am immediately smacked back into reality and realize I am stuck with the closet of clothing I have built, not a mythical Hollywood stylist.

I never thought I would have the opportunity to walk in a store and hear someone say, “chose what you want to style an outfit.” I mean, this is every girls dream. This happened to me the other day when I was told I was part of a style competition (which I have promoted the past few days on the blog) with Neiman Marcus Cusp and Dallas based magazine, FD Luxe. The theme was Rocker Chic and I had the entire store at my disposal. Wait, say that again? Yes, the entire store was mine to style a look. Sticking with the theme Rocker Chic I stayed with neutral pieces, but I could have spent hours in their looking at all the rich colors for fall. MmmmMmmm

My fantasy ended within the hour and I was headed home, to my regular closet but the experience was amazing and I had a fabulous time! While my fantasy is over the competition is still going on. I am in second and could use your help! Voting ends tomorrow…eek! If you want to help (which I appreciate) you can click here. xx

Quote Friday


I love this quote! Interesting and different are always two of the best combos. Lately, I have been feeling a bit stale in the creative realm and have been really wanting to reach out to people I know are interesting and different. Dallas is full of these creative types and I am ready to take full advantage! Accepting friend applications! 😉

I  want to also thank  everyone who came to the CUSP event last night. It meant the world to see all the people who showed up and I really appreciate it (shout out to fellow Dallas bloggers: BrookeSam, + Ashley). It was a really fun night and I loved getting to meet Jen and Monica. They are so sweet, and like the above, interesting and different. One has a super cool blog she does with her friend about styling Target clothing (I am sure you’ve heard of it), and the other, is a singer and jewelry designer. I am not worthy. Needless to say, the night was great!

Lastly, I found out that voting for your favorite, “Rocker Chic,” look doesn’t end until Sunday! I could still use your help! 🙂 Vote here!
