This outfit is super simple & can be worn many different times with different accessories to switch things up. I love finding some go to tops, jeans or shoes that you can re-wear with basically anything.

Here, I paired a pair of simple white jeans, with a boat neck long sleeve from Gap, with this ADORABLE jacket that was on sale at Free People!! I threw on my Golden Goose tennies, some super cute shades from Urban, & my Rebecca Minkoff backpack purse.

TIP: find a favorite pair of jeans & a classic tee and re-wear your outfit,, just mix up your shoes, shades, purse or outerwear!!!

summer vibes//fall feels

img_2951-1 Hey y'all!!

so i LOVED this day because of the weather; it was getting into the fall season, but still had that -cool in the morning, warm in the afternoon- Texas thing goin on. which is why this outfit was perfectttt!! This light and airy top covered me up enough, but didn't make me feel like I was literally boiling. I paired this Zara top with Gap flare jeans, J Crew sandals, a Madewell ascot and a Rebecca Minkoff saddle purse. so take a look and let me know whatcha think ;) xo

falling into fall.

Fall is my FAVORITE.

Partially because I’m always ready for the cool weather after brutal texas summers-- but mostly because that means FALL FASHION!! For this look I paired a denim skirt with a white button down over a light sweater, adding a beige ascot from madewell and embellished leather riding boots, carrying the suede saddle purse from Rebecca Minkoff. Pairing a plain button up with a sweater is always a go to!!
