tan & black

Dress: Wayf| Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell similar here, here , and here|Scarf: BP|Bag: Tory Burch|Bling: earrings, bracelet

Its Friday and I'm so excited about tonight because its date night! Me and J are gonna go watch "The Boy". I love horror/thriller movies and I was excited when I saw the trailer for this movie. I am a big fan of Lauren Cohan from "The Walking Dead" which plays the lead role in "The Boy" so I have no doubt the movie will be great.

So last week we drove around the city looking for nice places to shoot and we discovered these little pyramids just a few minutes from downtown. Its actually a park and its so lovely! Definitely a place to visit while in Houston.

One thing i will say about the dress I'm wearing is it wrinkles easily. I love this shirt dress so much but man I can spend minutes ironing the dress and at the end of the day it will look as if i didn't iron it at all. My fur scar has been one of my favorite purchases this winter and this was the first time I actually got to wear it. It has become a staple in my close, and here it goes, the most annoying blogger line ever said but I will say it because its goes with everything :)

What are your plans for the weekend? There are lots of good movies out right now. One that I recommend is "Room". I was invited to an advanced movie screening with Houston fashion bloggers but wasn't able to make it. And now that I finally got the chance to watch it, I have to say that you NEED to watch it. The story of the movie is so powerful! It will shred your heart to pieces! I had never cried watching a movie like I did with this one ever!!! If you have never heard of it, Its about a girl who was kidnapped and held captive for 7 years! And thats not all...she now has a 5 year old from the man that kidnapped her. And thats all I will say because you need to watch it :) Thank you for stopping by and come back next week for more

sweater dress

Dress: Old Navy (from last year) similar here ,here and love this |Boots: Dolce Vita, similar here, and here | Similar bag here |Scarf: here, and here |Ring: Kendra Scott, and love this, blue version here |Bracelet: Similar version here |Watch: c/o JORD

My favorite type of dresses are plain ones like shift dresses or sweater dresses simply because you can throw them on, add a statement necklace or scarf, a few bracelets and you're good to go. Its my go-to type of outfit when I'm running late :)

Last weekend me and Javier went exploring the heart of Houston...aka Downtown and found so much cool art in the streets including this wall. I hadn't planned on taking pictures but my outfit kinda matched the wall so I had to haha!

On another note, I have makeup related blog posts coming up so stay tuned for those ;) And as always thank you so much for reading! XO

Pink it on + Shabby Apple Giveaway

Dress: Shabby Apple c/o| Shoes: Charlotte Russe (old) similar here| Necklace: Aldo (old) similar here |Clucth: Thrifted, love this |Bracelets here|Earrings: Kate Spade

Happy Wednesday + new year!!! I am so excited to kick off my first 2016 blog post with Shabby Apple. I've also teamed up with them to give you a chance to win a $50 gift card to their store. Stay tuned at the end of this post for details on how to enter....its super easy I promise!

Valentines day is right around the corner,and if you love getting fancy for your boo like I do, then this dress would be perfect for the occasion. The bows on the sleeves are my favorite thing about the dress...definitely an eye catching detail! Javier actually tied my bows for the pictures and I have to admit he did a good job (insert clapping emoji)
Because the weather in Houston is currently in the high 60's, I can get away with wearing this dress without being cold, but how cute would it look paired with a light pink fur coat? and if you're into the pink and red valentine color combo, you can switch out the metallic heels for red lace-up heels. Talk about cuuutee! The dress I'm wearing is currently on sale for only $64.20 and if you're not feeling this bright pink color, they have the same dress in a few other colors which I've linked below.

I love that Shabby Apple offers everything from skirts, to dresses, to accessories, and bathing suits. They are true to size and they have sizes up to 16 so theres definitely something for everyone at Shabby Apple. The quality of their clothing is great! You don't have to worry about scratching throughout your date or church because their clothing is not itchy at all.
