A Fashion Fiend // High of 75

These lyrics sum up my last two days. It’s been just beautiful, clear skies,¬†high of 79. I’m starting to embrace the fall and added a scarf to one of my favorite eyelet dresses. Belting my scarf gave me a little shape to my non existent hips. Good trick to have in the bag. Have a great weekend ūüėČ

“And now I’m sunny with a high of 75
Since you took my heavy heart and made it light
And it’s funny how you find, you enjoy your life
When you’re happy to be alive”
Relient K

A Fashion Fiend // Fashion Law

Hey guys! I wanted to share with you a fashion seminar taking place this weekend in Arizona during the Business of Fashion Series presented by Phoenix Fashion Week. This is an important opportunity to talk face to face with an attorney about your brand.

I highly¬†suggest taking¬†this course, especially for bloggers. Most of us run our own blogs and just have no clue about people using our pictures, taking our ideas, etc. We need to know how to safeguard ourselves. Talia’s training is the best legal advice you will ever get and straight from an attorney’s mouth. Talia is captivating, extremely intelligent and will empower you to promote and grow your brand with outstanding confidence. Looking forward to seeing all of our AZ peeps there!

A Fashion Fiend // David Peck-Fashion Meets Hospitality

I wore this oxblood monochrome outfit to David Peck‘s show debuting his Fall/Winter 2014 collection. I love the deeper colors that get incorporated into my wardrobe as the weather cools down. Monochrome is a tricky style for me as I’m always trying to pop in color. But when I saw this matching crop and skirt- I went for it!

A Fashion Fiend // My Woman from Tokyo

TGIF everyone, made it through another week of crazy events and trunk shows! Wore this little number to a boutique party and it was literally the talk of the evening. This dress is so damn chic, I instantly fell in love. I paired it with my my Michael KORS Hamilton, which was perfect because my camera fit in it when I needed to be hands free! No one can tell me not to wear white after Labor Day! Have a great weekend.

A Fashion Fiend // On Repeat

I love these joggers, they’re a perfect transition piece. The fabric made them easy to wear during the hot summer months and the color helps me rotate them in my closet through the fall. I also snagged this asymmetrical, wrap top at Nordstrom’s Rack and fell in love. Another favorite are these new Elaine Turner two-tone heels that I snagged on sale! They go with everything! Hope you guys are getting some nice weather. Fall is my favorite season, and I’ve been preparing my house with all of my Autumn decorations. Smells of pumpkin spice and I couldn’t be happier.

I love the idea of brands that do their part in making the world a better place. Della, a socially responsible fashion company that partners with women in Ghana, West Africa to provide jobs, education and skills training. The beautiful prints are are thoughtfully designed and colored using the traditional Ghanaian dyeing process, making gorgeous one of a kind patterns. Della is now carried in Urban Outfitters and has just launched its Sole Mates line with Vans.

Trotting around town is easiest in comfortable clothes. On a busy day of running errands, I live in a cute jumpsuit. Easy, lightweight and adorable; perfect summer uniform.

Spring events are in filling up my evenings lately like no other. I’ve been so excited about all of the happenings¬†that I had two in one night! It was awesome though, so much fashion and style. My kind of night! The first event was at David Peck’s boutique: Heroes and Handbags¬†event featured the newest clutches and handbags by Houston artist Hanh Tran. Twenty percent of the proceeds from the evening’s sales benefitted Heroes for Children.

Teen Style Tuesday- Argyle

Hiya friends! It’s only Tuesday and I am already for the week to be over! We had testing last week at school so being back on our normal schedule is super lame. I liked spending the whole day with different people (we were split alphabetically), in different classrooms. Made the day less boring. I wore this sweater with my white skinnies on day 2 of testing. We didn’t have to bring our backpacks so I substituted my adorable fringe purse. Big enough for my i.d, pencils and calculator. I don’t know though, something about argyle pattern just makes me feel smarter ūüôā Have a great week my friends!
