Holiday Party Outfits

I am very excited about this Holiday Party Lookbook because I got to work with another Baton Rouge photographer that is shooting some fire pictures! Please check Ashley out!

1. High Waisted Wide Boot Pants 

This outfit is one of the cheapest ones and easiest to put together. The pants are from Shein, the shirt is from Fashion Nova, Shoes are Jessica Simpson and the bag is from Forever 21.

2. Mesh Dress

This dress has been one of my favorite pieces from Missguided for a long time! I always get compliments every time I wear it and it is so forgiving when it comes to eating those large holiday meals because of the ruching at the front.

3. Holiday Sparkle 

This Francesca's dress is so cute and comfortable! It is perfect for that office holiday party because it is not too revealing! Paired it with some gold pumps from Agaci and an acrylic bag from Amazon.

4. Classic Sequin Dress

This Zara dress is one of those dresses to have in case of an emergency. The sequins pull up the entire look but because they are black they are still super classy. I paired it with rose gold Steve Madden sandals.

Sponsored: Basic Invite Holiday Cards

I am super excited to be working with Basic Invite this year for their personalized holiday cards collection. I decided to pick the cutest pictures of Marla and turn them into holiday card for all my friends and family to see and enjoy. 

The best part about the process was being able to personalize the card exactly the way I wanted them. You can choose your fonts, colors and even add beautiful foils! Basic Invite has an incredible online Christmas cards selection, but if you wish to just start from scratch, you can upload your own design!

Whether it be for holiday party invitations or just holiday cards to send to your loved ones, Basic Invite has it all! 

I am so happy with the quality and look of my holiday and they shipped in around a week.

ACL 2019 Recap

This year I decided to go to ACL in Austin because the line up was amazing and my friends wanted to go too! The music and the food were great this year! I purchased three day tickets but could not go on Friday because my flight landed super late and I was just tired.

Sporty Chic

I purchased this Forever 21 skirt some time ago and I have had a hard time matching it with something. I decided to make it simple and add some white statement pieces and some simple white pieces.

Baby Blue Dress

This dress from Missguided is the most perfect color! I love the way it goes with nude shoes or a nude blazer. I'm trying to add more fall outfits to my blog but living in South Louisiana is making that super impossible since it's incredibly hot in September.

Date Night Outfit

This super cute dress from Vici Dolls is the perfect dress for date night! I paired with clear heels and a small black bag. I love how these heels elongate the leg and make you look taller! Especially important for my shorter girls.

Texas Forever

I recently joined a group of bloggers here in Louisiana, and we decided to go a game day post challenge. I'm not really a football person but I do support my Longhorns everywhere I go!

As soon as I put on the jersey that has been sitting in the back of my closet, I realized that it has been a year since I moved to Louisiana. To commemorate my moving anniversary,  here are a few things that I miss from Texas:

1. My family <3 
2. My friends.
3. The culture.
4. The food: Houston and Austin have amazing restaurants from everywhere in the world! I have some of my favorites on my Instagram Story Highlights.
5. The people. Don't get me wrong, people here in Louisiana are super nice! But my Texans have my heart. 
6. The size of the cities. I love love a big city, to be able to find things to do at any time of the day, to have justified traffic (BR, I'm talking about you!).
7. Hearing different languages all the time. This might be like a silly one, but I took it for granted all those years in Houston and Austin! I get very excited the few times I hear people here speak anything other than English. 
8. Whataburger *They have it in Louisiana but it does NOT taste the same!
9. The malls and shops.
10. Friendly neighbors. 

I have learned so much in this past year, and I'm looking forward to the next two years of growth and getting to know Louisiana more.

Affordable Business Casual Outfits: Pants

On the second edition of the affordable office outfits, I wanted to pants because if your office is as cold as all the offices I have worked at, bare legs won't cover it. Most of these outfits are from JCPenney, which is a great place to find affordable work clothes and they usually have cute and comfortable things!

Minimalistic Snake Print

In order to give y'all a little break from all the seriousness of the business outfits, I decided to put together this little number. If you ever catch Zara during their seasonal sales, get yourself some very high quality pieces for not a lot of money.

Afordable Business Casual Outfits: Dresses

I decided to do a series on the blog of business outfit ideas just because I know when I started working it was kind of hard to figure out what to wear. On this post, I am sharing three affordable looks for a more business casual dress code.  Note: if you don't have a big budget, as long as you have a nude and black purse and nude and black flats, your outfits will go a long way.

Fashion Trend: Wrap Dress II

I have been loving the wrap dress trend for the summer! I've found you can wear these dresses with sneakers, boots, sandals or wedges. This dress is the last of the ones I got from the Charlotte Russe sale. I love how this color of leather goes with navy blue.

Timeless Floral

In honor of one of my favorite stores closing, I decided to put together this clean simple look. When I found out Charlotte Russe was closing their stores I had so many feelings. Charlotte Russe was with me through every beginning of the school year, every high school party, and every mall outing.

Ew, David!
