Summer in the City

This year I've really been loving hot pink, which is a little out of the ordinary for me because I'm not that much of a pink person. Hot pink is such a fun and bright color that really makes a statement, and lately I haven't been able to get enough, so when I found this dress on sale for $30 I knew I had to have it! 

Out and About

Summer is definitely the best time to mix bright colors and prints, and I always love a good nautical look. White jeans and a breezy tie front crop top is perfect for a hot summer day running errands and a couple pops of color doesn't hurt either.

Fall Transition Pieces

Am I the only one that can't wait for sweater weather? I'm seriously so excited for fall and I have only just started my fall wardrobe shopping! Unfortunately in Texas fall weather probably wont come for another two months, it's definitely been in the 3 digits lately...which is no time for sweaters and riding boots. I definitely want to be shopping all the new collections that are coming out without having to wait to wear them, which is why I love the idea of transition pieces to help get through both seasons. Which is especially useful for a state that only has 4 months of cold!

Pastel Party

I do love a good summertime soiree, I feel like during the spring and summer I can have so much more fun with cocktail attire even though fall and winter tend to be event season (luckily all my friends seem to have decided to get engaged all at once...#weird.) I love this Joyluxe mint lacy dress. It's super comfortable for a hot summer afternoon and is the perfect color for a summer evening with friends (and under $50!).

Poolside Essentials

Now that it's officially August and the summer heat is in full gear, all I want to do is chill by (or in!) the pool all day and soak up as much summer sun as I can before September. I feel like between moving and finishing up projects at work, this summer has been super busy for me. Most weekends I've been too busy running errands and moving (ugh) to get to enjoy relaxing by the pool. I'm hoping this August I'll be able to relax and get a tan that will hopefully sustain me through winter ;). Check out some of my favorite poolside essentials for those lazy days sipping margaritas by the pool:
