Sweatin It in a Sweater

There are two things Texans don’t need many of: coats and sweaters. That does not keep me from wanting all the cozy numbers that show up in stores the second we drop into the 60 degree temps.  These are REALLY calling my name. They are also calling out that I may need a stripes intervention. I think every single item I like these days is striped.

  1. Old Navy, Striped Intarsia Sweater
  2. Forever 21, Wide Stripe Sweater
  3. Forever21, Striped Sweater Top
  4. Forever 21, Thick Stripe Sweater
  5. Forever 21, Colorblock Turtleneck Sweater



Being Part of the Tribe

I’m really digging the tribal prints that I am seeing all over the fashion scene in these dog days of summer. I’ve been accused recently of gravitating towards more solid colored clothing and I think tribal prints are my way to branch out of that funk.

  2. Forever 21, Tribal Knit Top
  3. Nordstrom, Print Boxy Tee
  4. Charlotte Russe, Tribal Print Cold Shoulder Top

My Inner Egyptian

Hellllo there. It’s been a while, so I thought I would ease my way back into things with one FABULOUS piece of jewelry. It’s basically a steal at $7 and would go with just about anyone’s summer wardrobe. Check out this arm candy, folks.

Just Call Me Dora

As in Fedora. I wore one last weekend while at the big antiques/craft show in Round Top, TX and Court called me Dora the whole day.  My sister, on the other hand, called me Pete Wentz. Not really sure where that came from, does he even wear fedoras?? Any ways, regardless of the nick names, I will continue to wear my fedora with pride. What about you?
