Feather Dress: Jardin by Macris  (sale) | Shoes: Sole Society | Bag: Johnston & Murphy | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Earrings: Gorjana | Watch: Larsson & Jennings | Hat: Sole Society

Guilty, I have worn this dress 3 times this week and I am wearing it again around the house while I type this blog post. It really is light as a feather and it gives such a boho feather vibe. I am so obsessed with this swing dress and I have styled it a few different ways now! Over accessorizing with brown booties, a hat, and this bag has been my favorite style thus far. This swing dress also has pockets and the feather print is so stinking cute for this time of year. I go a little crazy over my swing dresses since they are so comfortable and practical to run around in.  I found this dress from a boutique called Jardin by Macris and the dress is on sale!

Thank y’all for stopping by, means more than you know.

I know a few of you maybe headed to somewhere warmer for the holidays so I wanted to share the perfect resort holiday look. Fall / Winter really gets me into the dull color moods so personally I wouldn’t go for my typical bright color beach wear attire. Once I saw these gold foil shorts, I knew they would be the perfect resort wear for this time of year. Since its somewhat warmer in Houston I wore these babes out the other day and got a million and one compliments.  I was planning on bringing them to our Australia trip which we were going to leave tomorrow for, BUT things have changed! This is why I should keep my mouth shut and not share where we are going until it actually happens. A lot of moving parts made us think it would be best to wait until December so FINGERS crossed. We may or maybe not be headed somewhere else instead this weekend but we shall see!

Happy hump day babes. I feel like holidays are in full swing. Let the festivities commence! I will be sharing lots of gift guides in the next couple of weeks – I promise they are coming.

Sweater: Chicwish | Pants: Good American | OTK Boots: Steve Madden (the best) | Purse: Gigi NY | Bracelet: Bauble Bar | Watch: Michael Kors | Sunglasses: Karen Walker

This asymmetrical sweater comes in the prettiest color I ever did see and I went crazy over it when I put it on. I paired it with some light color hues like white denim (bc white denim for me is all year round) and my favorite OTK boots. Hubs and I spent the last couple days in Boulder / Denver with some friends so I wanted to list out real quick our favorites incase you ever find yourself in Boulder or Denver.

Food:

  • Zeal: (Boulder) Perfect  healthy / typical denver place. We came here for breakfast but I also have been here for lunch and all of their salads are so good.
  • Fresh Thymes: (Boulder) Another yummy healthy spot
  • Laughing Goat: (Boulder) Little coffee shop on Pearl street. We worked here for a little one day and it was just the cutest.
  • Foolish Craigs: (Boulder) good for brunch!
  • Meadowlark: (Denver) We went here for dinner and drinks the last night with the guys and it was so yum. The burger was so good but we all were a little confused what sauce was in it.
  • *Zoe Mama: (Denver) Was such in a good location and was the perfect authentic Asian food. SO GOOD.

City Spots:

  • Flat Iron: (Boulder) I love love love this hike! This was my second time and it’ such a fun hike. There are multiple trails and is an adventure.
  • Estes Park: Say no more. Just google this place, and you will be in awe. So much to see, hike and do here.
  • Union Station: This was in Downtown, Denver and was a fun little stroll. Full of restaurants, famous Ice Cream shops, etc.
  • Red Rocks is another fun place to go but we didn’t get a chance too this time around! Attending a worship concert here would be a dream!

We were in Boulder / Denver for a quick two days so we basically ate and hung out with family and friends but it is definitely one of my favorites!

Jacket: Leith | Tee: BP | Scarf: Madewell | Shoes: Jack Rogers | Denim: Treasure & Bond

I am pretending like it’s cold in Houston so I can wear this bomb bomber jacket. I love the material of this bomber and gray has definetly been the color I have gravitated towards lately. Hence, these gray skinnies that are also under $100! I originally bought this jacket for Denver since it’s so warm inside and fluffy. Sadly when I got home I realized they left the sensor on and I couldn’t pack it. It would have been the perfect coat to bring to Denver! I guess I now will have to wait a couple more months to actually be able to wear it in Houston!

Thanks for stopping by loves and I hope y’all had a great weekend. We had two huge events this weekend, the HOME gala and a friends wedding so that kept us VERY busy. This week I am hiting the ground running and trying to be SUPER productive. Lots going on and I am so thankful for it!
