Easy Transition to Fall

August 28, 2015
fringe sweater, jean skirt, black purse

When I saw this fringe sweater on Choies website (only $35 by the way!), I loved everything about it. I knew it would be a piece I could wear all fall and winter in a variety of ways: over a dress, with jeans, or with a skirt as you see here. Since Choies usually takes about three weeks to ship, I ordered it and put it out of my mind. When it arrived a little sooner than I expected, I…

Boho Dress for Brunch

August 26, 2015
boho dress, lace up sandals, hat, chloe bag

How fun is this boho dress look? I wore this to brunch on Saturday with my main man. I have a major weakness for brunch. In general, I am a pretty healthy eater, but brunch is hard to resist. I mean, biscuits?! You may not know this about me, but I used to be on the heavier side. I got made fun of some as a kid. Man, those names stick. I have NO willpower. My willpower has to start…

The Perfect Striped Shirt

August 24, 2015
blue and white striped top, dark jeans, chloe dupe bag, tan heeled sandals

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend! I actually took Friday off because Russ surprised me with a gift card for a spa day. I won’t lie, I hinted at wanting a little treat which is embarrassing to admit. I’ve been feeling pretty hormonal with infertility treatment. I’m over having my hormones messed with! Thankfully it is almost over. Anyway, Russ totally picked up on my hint and did even more. It was so nice of…

Midi Dress and Booties

August 21, 2015
Maude plaid dress, fringe booties, hat 1

How much fun is this checkerboard midi dress from Maude Boutique!? I love the back. More than anything, it was fun to pair a midi dress and booties together. Is it boot season yet?? These fringe beauties are from last year, but I found an almost exact look a like for only $45 (also available in tan)! Maude consistently has multiple pieces I want in my closet like yesterday. I’m currently eyeing this floral midi dress (I might have a thing for…

Striped Shirt Dress

August 19, 2015
Sage shirt dress, fringe heels, rebecca minkoff bag, karen walker sunglasses

Anyone else loving shirt dresses lately? I mean, I’ve always been a dress girl. Give me a one piece outfit any day. Add sandals in the summer. Layers in the winter. Hats, booties, and fun jewelry. I feel like the combinations are endless, yet the actual outfit is mindless. When I saw this striped shirt dress on the Sage Threads & Co. website (also loving this LWD), I knew I needed it. It’s a heavier material, almost like a flannel, so…

Reinvent Your Workwear

August 17, 2015
gingham top, polka dot skit, jean jacket, black heeled sandals

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. We really enjoyed spending some quality time with my family on my parents’ farm. I shared a snap on Instagram if you follow me there. Lots of fishing, playing with my adorable niece and nephew, eating my mom’s amazing food, and generally having a good time. It’s fun to trade my heels in for boots occasionally. Today’s look is a totally recycled one. I love this gingham top. You last saw it…

Denim Dress

August 14, 2015
denim dress, fringe clutch, karen walker sunglasses, silver necklace, platforms

The denim dress. Is there anything more classic or wearable? I love having pieces like this is my closet because they are so versatile and easy. This exact one from Oasap is sold out, but I linked several others I would wear in a heartbeat that are under or right around $30. Win! On a fashion related note, I am on a Pinterest kick. I have always loved Pinterest, but I am trying to organize my boards and utilize it…

Fringe and Suede

August 10, 2015
fringe top, karen walker sunglasses, bib necklace, suede skirt

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. If you follow me on Snapchat (straightastyle), you already know Russ and I went with my parents to a demolition derby. It was really fun and a total cultural experience in small town Oklahoma. This fringe and suede outfit feels really me: trendy but not too dressy, a little edge but not grunge, neutral, and non-girly. Since I love my denim skirt so much, I had been eyeing its suede…

Black and Cognac

August 7, 2015
black and white dress, prada sunglasses, cognac platforms

I’ve had a think for black and cognac pairings lately. First it was my black and white top with my cognac sandals, then it was my black dress with the same sandals, and now today it’s this back and white dress with my cognac platforms. Let’s talk about this dress. How great is it? I love this kimono style. It’s sooo comfy, and at $12 you really need to go purchase it now. No peer pressure or anything. I didn’t…
