Why I’m Hooked on Grove Collaborative (and You Will Be Too)

Cleaning with Grove Collaborative products

“I want to buy products that will hurt the environment,” says no one ever. Really though, it’s not like anyone wakes up on the wrong side of the bed and purposely buys product that they know will spoil the environment and their health. But buying products that support people and the planet isn’t always convenient. And sometimes the “eco-friendly” label makes people wonder if they’re compromising on cleaning power. Well let me tell you guys I found a super convenient way to get my earth friendly cleaning on: Grove Collaborative. And you better believe that I’m not making any compromises. Grove goodies are just as good (heck maybe even better) than the those other products with the nasties in them.

Read on to learn more about why I love Grove and get the lowdown on how you can score some free goodies.

Jump on The Color Trend: Burnt Orange

June 3, 2019

Lafayette148 Italian Bi-Stretch Pima Cotton Casper Shirtdress

As an Aggie, you wouldn’t think burnt orange is a color that I would be into (although my Longhorn hubby would heartily approve). But man I am loving all the pieces I see when I’m out in the stores. I used to associate burnt orange as a fall color. After this though, I’m gonna be thinking of it as a Summer (or maybe even year round) color as well. It’s a color that’s flattering on pretty much everyone, and it might just be your new favorite.

Read on to see more of my outfit and my some of my favorite burnt orange pieces for the season.

All The White Dresses You Need in Your Closet ASAP

May 28, 2019

H&M shirt dress with tie belt

I would say get your all-white on before labor day, but lets keep it real, for me all-white is an all-year vibe. There’s nothing quite striking of a look as an all-white outfit. It’s an instant chic look that’s totally photo ready (pro-tip: it’s especially true if you pose in front of a dark background).

The look can be quite intimidating to achieve. So what’s the beginner’s trick to it? Try a dress. No need to worry about matching and layering pieces. All you’ve got to do is add white shoes and the right accessories. And don’t be afraid to go a little bit off of the reserves. For this look, I guess I should say that my vibe is almost all-white. I added a white pleated scarf with hints of yellow to round up the look.

Eager to try on the trend for yourself? Read on to see more of this look and some of my favorite white dresses pick.

Try Something New: Asymmetrical Cut Jumpsuits

May 15, 2019

Dressbarn Tied-Front Genie-Pant Jumpsuit

Although I occasionally go for the prints, it’s no secret that I prefer plain colors (read: black). Okay, so soooometimes I like to pair them with white (groundbreaking). And add a little bit of color and pizzaz with my accessories (oh damn so revolutionary).

But as a lover of black, what I really am on the lookout for most of the time is that little bit of interesting detail, that differentiates a piece of clothing, that is not color or pattern. I definitely found it with this tied-front genie-pant jumpsuit from Dressbarn. I know what you’re going to say: Dressbarn? I think thats where my mee-maw buys her church dress. Yes, probably. But also, they have recently rebranded and have some unexpectedly cute stuff in the store. I was seriously skeptical, but when I went to their spring preview there was so many items I wanted, including this uber stylish jumpsuit.

Don’t believe me? Check out the store for yourself. But first, read on to see more of my outfit.

Why You Need to Get a Leather Vest ASAP

May 8, 2019

Lafayette 148 Stevie Leather Moto Vest

I’ve always been a leather jacket kind of girl. If you follow me on Instagram you might already know this, as I probably wear it way too much. I wear the jacket for as long as I can into Spring, because heck it goes great with my Spring dresses.

But now that the weather is getting warmer, I’m sad to say that the time to retire my leather jacket is almost here. So what’s a leather loving gal to do? Switch out my leather jacket for a vest of course. All of the looks I had planned to pair with my leather jacket, will also go well with the vest.

I don’t know why I didn’t get the vest earlier. I feel like I’m missing out on all the leather fashion possibilities. So it’s safe to say, you’ll be seeing a lot of leather vest look coming up on the blog and gram.

Read on to see more of this look and my favorite leather jacket (of the real and faux varieties).

The Prettiest Floral Dress You’ll Want to Wear This Spring

April 23, 2019

Suggesty Floral Dress

As Miranda Priestly would put it, florals for Spring may not be ground breaking. But there is a reason it’s a season favorite.
You won’t find many floral items in my closet as it’s not a print I typically go for. However, you really can’t (or shouldn’t) get through Spring without wearing at least one floral outfit.

For this outfit, I decided dial up the girlyness all the way to the right. Frillies, tie collar, florals and pearls: yes I got it all in this outfit.

This Denim Jumpsuit is Anything But Boring

March 28, 2019

C/MEO Collective Denim Jumpsuit

I feel like as a fashion blogger, I’ve seen it all. After all, a big part of my job is spent sifting through trends and perusing (read: shopping) for items to style the next photoshoot. It’s not often where I see something and go: okay that’s a bit different. This C/MEO Collective denim jumpsuit was one of those that gave me pause (and which was immediately followed by a “gimme must have it now” hand gesture).

Jumpsuits are nothing new and novel, but the design and material of this is a change from what I’m used to. Usually denim jumpsuits are not really true denim, but is rather a chambray. This jumpsuit has the feel and weight of true denim, which aside from the lovely substance, has a nice added bonus of being more wrinkle resistant. I’m also a huge fan of the puffy sleeve details. If this was made from any other material, that puff sleeve would deflate easily. The structure of the denim ensures that the jumpsuit will always have the full puff effect.

Another reason why this jumpsuit is bomb is its versatility. I styled this for a breezy day with Uniqlo heattech turtle neck shirt layered underneath. But you could easily wear it without an undershirt, which makes it wearable for multiple seasons.

Mixing Knit and Faux Fur

How to mix knit with faux fur

I hope I convinced you with my last blog post that you shouldn’t pack your fur jackets just yet. I’m not sure what the weather is like were you live, but here in New York, we’ve got weather predictions that ranges from the low 30s to the mid 60s in the next two weeks. In other words, there are plenty opportunities for you to don your fuzzy jackets.

One of the easiest unexpected items to pair them with is knit sweaters, which I’m almost certain everyone has in their closet. If you don’t yet, you definitely should invest in one, since you’ll be able to wear them will into late Spring. Once the weather gets warmer, you can wear them sans fur (or any outerwear for that matter). They even look great paired with a fun spring-y floral maxi skirt.
