This top screams date night and I love love how romantic it makes me feel. The tie sleeves create a waterfall effect and just gives it a new spin to off the shoulder. Last year, they came out with pretty much the exact top (see here) but didn’t have the sleeves so I got excited how creative they have been getting with OTS. I also mentioned last week the stickies I swear by and wanted to share them here. I don’t remember the last time I wore a bra. I usually grab these stickies every morning and put a new order in like once or twice a month! Last week I was at lunch with a friend and all of a sudden her stickie just flopped on the floor. We died laughing but you definitely don’t want that happen to you! I’ve never had that problem with these and when I feel like they are sliding off, I make sure to just put an order for a new one.

I also wanted to share the Houston Khou live segment I was apart of yesterday morning! I am so excited to be apart of Miss Academy which is a finishing school here in Houston. You can learn more about them here and fast forward to 6 minutes to see my tiny snippet!  I was so nervous when I said yes but luckily I had Ted to help me prep! Anyways, I am so excited to be an advisor for Miss Academy and meet all the girls that will be attending this summer! You can read all about their FAB programs here. They will have classes everywhere to boss babe, etiquette, hair and make up, styling, etc!

I am a big believer in tees but yet I lack them. I always grab on trend stylish tops and lack in tees! I love that this one is a party in the back and a super simple tee in the front. The best part, its on major sale, like $30, and 3 different colors! I also major accessorized this tee with my current tassel obsession earrings and a fun lip. I explained more in depth how to accessorize a tee in this blog post here.

I also haven’t introduced you to my shoes but I feel like I wear them, ALL THE TIME. I would recommend sizing up a half size since they are little tight. I got blisters in them the first day but I think I stretched them out enough now to avoid blisters. I love that they are Dr. Scholls so they have AMAZING sole padding. My mom is a big believer in comfortable padded shoes to give you support so these are my go to while running around town.

I also added this neck scarf to my wrist to pop in the navy / blue look. This morning I was on a live TV segment with Khou news and neck ties were my main topic. I am super late on this post because of the segment but I will be sure to share a link to it tomorrow!

Jumper: J.O.A or Anthro | Shoes: Steve Madden (sale) | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Necklace: Argento Vivo | Earrings: Tory Burch |

So I know this jumper is a little out there but getting out of your box is always a good thing. I tried this jumpsuit on at Anthropologie and fell in love with how comfortable it was. It is pretty heavy material but heavy means thick and I love it! The strapless is also very elastic so it stays up even if it’s heavy!

Anyways, denim + denim culottes + jumpers are very on trend right now so I got so excited when I put this babe on. If only I added pops of red, it would have been the perfect Memorial day outfit inspo. There is like an 80% chance I’ll be wearing some sort of denim this weekend.

So one thing I was shocked about was buying this jumper from Anthro then going home and finding the same exact item on Nordstrom for a lot less! This is one reason why I am a sucker for Nordstrom, as you probably know! I hate the feeling of shopping somewhere and thinking I am missing out on a sale because of coupons, etc. I love how Nordstrom provides the lowest amount and you don’t have to feel like you are missing out on a lower price! I am 5’3 so Antrho did have the luxury of providing petite sizes. I am wearing the petite xs and fit like a glove! If you are taller than me, the regular Nordstrom size will work for you! Oh & my shoes are on sale. Happy Monday darlings!

I have been living in this tee and is currently a fav! I realized I have been lacking the basic tee department so when I came across this one, I snagged it fast. It’s an incredibly soft material and the price is a steal. I wore it to church on Sunday, on our car ride to Fredsrickburg, and again yesterday. I am only human and if I really like something, I tend to grab it over and over. I styled this tee a different way each time but in the photos above, I wanted to share some ways you can make a basic tee look that much more dressed up.

Tips to accessorize a basic tee:

1. White jeans: wearing denim jeans really does dress down a look with a tee. Denim jeans are for everyday but styling a tee with black or white jeans takes it to another level. I def stand by these particular white jeans.

2. Accessorize: Adding a hat, bauble earrings, a bracelet stack, or even sunnies can make that basic tee that much better. Straw boater hats have been on major trend lately!

3. A bright lip: It’s officially spring, which means bring out those bright lips babe! I am a sucker for bright color lipstick and I keep grabbing this color to give a pop.

4. The right shoes: flip-flops would make this look meh and back to the basics. These mules elevate the look but are also as comfortable as some flip flops. They have been my go to when running out the door and I love them in black but come in 3 other colors! They also are on sale!
