Cancun Casuals

January 28, 2016

I’ve only been back less than a week and already I’m missing Cancun so much. I mean who wouldn’t miss the wonderful staff of J.W. Marriott catering to your every whim while you soak up the sun. Though, what I probably will miss more than pool-side service is being able to wear short shorts, crop tops, and of course walking barefoot on the beach. Don’t worry shorts, we’ll see each other in a few months (or maybe shorter if I get weak and book an impromptu beach vacay).

Backpacks

January 13, 2016

backpack

I don’t post a lot of blog shots with bags/purses. It isn’t because I don’t use one but because I get lazy and tend to have the same bag all the time unless we are going out then I’ll change it up to match my outfit. Right now I’m super obsessed with my backpack and backpacks in general. I actually haven’t switched from this bag for a few months now and to top it off I’m shopping for another black backpack… what can I say I like what I like.

Crazy Cat Collar

January 10, 2016

Choies White Cat Pattern Collar Pocket Detail Long Sleeve Shirt

Ok so I promised there would be tons more #meow in 2016, so of course the fourth blog of the year has got to be cat related. I was so excited to find this shirt at Choies — they have so many cat themed clothing on the cheap, it was really difficult to restrain myself from going overboard. I’m happy to report that I didn’t, and only purchase two items (the other cat-lady item will of course be featured in an upcoming future blog).

This cat collared shirt is a perfect match with the Lord Nermal phone case I just got. If you follow our instagram, you might remember that my sister has a similar case. At first, I thought it might be a bit weird to have the same phone case as my sis. But then I realized since she has the iPhone 6 and I have the 6S Plus, which is bigger. I thought it would be perfect, since I am big sis after all. I can’t wait to see her next, at which point we naturally will photograph our cases side-by-side. I mean, you can’t just let an Instagram moment like that pass, can you? ☺

The majority of my denim is ripped/distressed. I feel like the more rips the better! Now that it’s snowing I started layering a pair of tights underneath so I can continue to wear them during winter… YAY for tights!!!!

Denim Jacket

January 3, 2016

Brandi Melville Amara Jacket

One of my shopping mission of the past holiday break was to find a new boyfriend denim jacket. I already had mentally prepared myself to brave the holiday crowd to hunt for that perfect jacket, when I saw that my sister was wearing exactly I wanted. What can I say my sis has good taste, so of course I had to copy her. Did I mention that said jacket from Brandi Melville was only $40? Score! Even better, the denim piece goes so perfect with my newly acquired Dagne Dover tote.

Snowman

January 1, 2016

SNOWMAN Slice Raincoat

First post of the year! Hope everybody had a bangin’ New Year’s Eve last night. I’m still on my holiday break at my parents, enjoying the mild Texas winter (none of the crazy Minnesota snow Jess is having). So this snowman jacket was the perfect Texas travel companion. I daresay as soon as I get back to New York, this jacket is probably getting retired to the coat closet until early spring. Unless that is, we get more of those freakish global warming unseasonal high temps.
