Sweater Weather


Hey guys! I'm just sitting on my bed having a glass of red wine before I call it a night. Thought I'd share with you guys some much-needed sweaters for fall that we all need in our wardrobe. It was so windy and cold here in Texas today and it inspired me to do a blog post on sweat shirts and sweaters. Down below you'll find seven gorgeous sweaters from, you guessed it, my favorite store, H & M.

Stay ahead of the game and shop these must haves down below!











What are you most excited about for fall?

OOTD | Converse Meets Slacks

If you've read my previous post I mentioned one of my favorite styles (Converse paired with anything other than a pair of jeans) while showing you all an example of I meant. I mean Converse are a classic that has been around for years and we've normally only seen them styled one way.

Down below I decided to pull out my black and white high top Converse to show you guys how I like to style them. I went with a pair of black slacks, a burgundy sweat shirt with a deep pink Christian Siriano bag draped across.

This look is perfect for going out with the girls after work! The slacks say office while the Converse says out on the town. Be sure to add a few pieces of jewelry to your look and you're all set. I went with a bit of gold to bring out the gold accents on my bag.

Styling Converse


One of my favorite styles (that I'm surprised I don't see much of) is pairing Converse with something other than a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. As most of you may know I love seeing things styled together that's outside of the norm. Down below I styled a pair of black and white Converse with a pair of faux leather pants with an oversized sweater, perfect for Fall!

YouTube | "Vlog"



Usually my Sunday posts are about self care but today's conversation is going in a different direction. Let's talk Vlog's! My favorite thing to watch on YouTube are Vlog's. People going through their everyday lives and bringing you along with them is always fun to watch. 

About a year ago I decided to go ahead and give vlogging a try. Whenever I went out the camera went too! I went on being unfulfilled and unsatisfied. 

Making normal, "I'm on my way out the door.", "look what I did today." videos aren't my cup of tea.. or glass of wine for that matter . That wasn't enough for me and knowing I'm surrounded by inspiration I needed to take a step back and really think of the content I wanted to create. 

I want my videos to be inspiring, to tell a story, touch someone, to be peaceful -a form of art. 

My "vlogs" aka short films are going be short and sweet moments of a certain point in my day. Today I uploaded my first video entitled "A Story" (which is what all my vlogs will be called). 

Anyone can pick up a camera and click record, but I'm not that person -I MUST create.

Christian Siriano | Bag


Black and white is a winner right? I mean it works for summer and fall. As some of you may know by now I'm in the process of updating my bag collection -and trust me it's in desperate need! I mostly had black bags before adding a bit of color. Down below is the gorgeous black and white bag by Christian Siriano. This is the perfect bag when you calmly want to make a statement.

The Hot Bag | OOTD

How is it Monday already? How did my vacation fly by?! I'm not ready to go back to work tomorrow but I'm going to stay positive and be productive this week (have to keep those GOALS in mind). Remember not to get so caught up in where you're at in life at the moment, but where you're going! To those with the Monday blues like me, know that whatever has you blue is a stepping stone to where you're trying to go. 

Down below I styled a look around my favorite pair of slacks and added a touch of color with my new Christian Siriano bag. 

Shop my look down below!






What goals are you trying to complete this week?!

Self Care Sunday | No.7 Beautiful Skin

My go to and most favorite product to use for all things face was L'Oreal's Micellar Water, until I found the best eye makeup remover ever..


No7's Beautiful Skin eye makeup remover! Its magic in a bottle, it simply just gets the job done! This is my first purchase from this line and I'm impressed! What I like most about it is, a little goes a long way and it's OIL FREE! I feel like my Micellar water left a bit of residue on my eyes which was slightly annoying, but I love it for taking off the rest of my makeup. I will be heading to Ulta soon to pick up another bottle of No7! 



What products do you use to remove eye makeup?!

Fenty Beauty

Have you heard about the Fenty Beauty line by Rihanna? Well of course you have! Pictures of her beauty line are everywhere on Instagram (and I mean everywhere)! The Fenty Beauty line has 40 'Pro Filt'r' shades, blushes, highlighters, lip gloss, blotting paper, beauty blinder, primer, a foundation brush, and more!

 I'm a sucker for good products and packaging of course. I'm sure most can tell that a lot of thought went into this line and it wasn't rushed! The only item I ran to the mall to pick up (on opening day) was the 'Pro Filt'r' soft matte longwear foundation (which I'll be trying out tomorrow for my mom's birthday dinner). I'll be making another visit to Sephora really soon to pick up more items!


What products from her line are you loving so far?!

OOTD | The Fall Layer

(Sigh) layering weather is one of my favorite things about Fall! You're able to experiment and be creative which is what being stylish is all about.

Before heading out for dinner and drinks I snapped a few picture for my blog layering one of my favorite blazers pairing it with my new Christian Siriano bag (will post closer pictures later).

I love pairing pieces together that I've never seen styled and just playing around with the items in my closet. Decided to layer a sweatshirt on top of my blazer with my purse underneath, with a light denim.

Self Care Sunday's

Sunday's are meant for pampering, spending time alone, and self care. I typically get my nails done on Saturday that way I'm able to be lazy around the house all day on Sunday. My pampering tends to take place at home in my favorite sports bra and my favorite pair of pajama shorts while lying on my yoga mat (instead of actually working out). Today's self care was a very quick yet effective one -my new Pure-Clay facial cleanser by L'Oreal. 



After cleaning my face of all the dirt from the day I enjoyed a glass of white wine while watching some football!


L'Oréal's Pure-Clay Cleanser goes from clay to mousse while exfoliating the skin and ridding your face of the days dirt. There are other cleansers in this line to choose from, click L'Oréal to shop!

How do you spend your Sunday's?!

Christian Siriano

If you look in my closet at my purse collection all you'll see are black bags and about four of color. So I made a mental note, as I always do, to add to my collection as soon as possible! While out celebrating my moms birthday today we did a bit of shopping before having dinner together at a burger joint. I had no intentions of buying anything but I walked out with a couple things -that's what happens when you don't stay in the car! (Lesson learned)


Isn't she a beaut?! This color is perfect for Fall and will pair well with just about everything! The material is of good quality and I'm pleased with the attention to detail. The inside has black and white stripes which pairs well with the gold accents. A bit of gold done right adds a bit of luxury and elegance to any piece. 


Any Christian Siriano pieces you're loving?!

Styling New Balance Mode De Vie | OOTD

Really September 4th?! Really?! The only reason I'm excited other than my mom's birthday is.. HALLOWEEN! I'm so ready to decorate the house and make our balcony all spooky looking! Oh and of course carving pumpkins.

My mom's birthday is on September 14 and I'm celebrating her for 14 days with a gift and/or taking her out to eat. Our first restaurant was Amberjax in Dallas and a trip to the Cake Bar afterwards, ending our day with a game of cards (see won of course).

Now that its September its time to pull out the deep the dark and sexy lipstick and Fall boots. I went with my favorite Fall lipstick, red! Thought it would go perfectly with an all black look with a touch of grey.

Don't forget to shop my look down below!









What are you looking forward to this Fall?!
