Definitely stuck in weekend mode yesterday. After a Sunday brunch with one of my besties, and tackling an ambitious dinner later that night, I decided to take a breather. Hope you all had an awesome weekend, seems as though they’re never long enough!

Ok, you guys…so I have a confession to make. I have seriously been living in these jeans for the past 2 weeks and funny thing is, they’ve been in my closet for the past year! I seem to go through phases of finding a favorite pair of denim in my wardrobe and re-working it into my outfits so don’t be mad when you start to see a trend ;).  With my constant coldness, and this some-what cooler Texas heat, I’m wrapping my favorite denim jacket to accentuate my waist and become an instant accessory. I can dig it!

Thanks for reading!



Autumn Tones

Top: J.Crew | Jeans: Nordstrom Rack | Heels: Zara | Sunglasses: Fossil | Bag: Forever 21 | Cape Blazer & Earrings: from Le Garage Sale (old)

Switching out my summer tanks to embrace the warm autumn tones. I bought this top last year and never managed to take the tags off, but I feel in love with the color and knew I could pair it with just about anything. Burgundy is one of my favorite colors for fall and one you can wear head to toe, looking oh-so chic in. I went with a cape blazer to dress up my look a bit but I’ll definitely be pairing this top with a cardi come cooler months. What’s your favorite fall color?

My Experience at Le Garage Sale

When one of my friends asked me last week if I was going to Le Garage Sale, I kind of started at her with confusion for a second wondering why I was just finding out LOL! Best believe I immediate went and signed up on their email list! If you’re not sure what the heck Le Garage Sale is let me fill you in on one of my favorite events in Austin.This isn’t your typical ‘ones man’s trash is another man’s treasure’ garage sale, dozens of local shops and boutiques set up shop and mark down prices insanely cheap making it impossible to say “no” to.

This is my third time attending and after having done a few, I felt the need to really share the inside scoop. I’ll never forget the first time I went, me and one of my good friends got there early and waited in line anticipating what it was going to be like and the very first booth was By George. Women were in there grabbing Givenchy boots for a quarter of the price. Say whaaaat! Every year I go, I try to find one special piece that I know I’ll have in my wardrobe for-ev-er! The first time I bough a $475 angora sweater for $75, and the second time I bought an edgy black romper from on of my favorite boutiques, Southern Hippie for $60! This time however, one of my besties and I hit the jackpot and just so happen to be at the right place at the right time. UAL was having “fill-a-bag” for $10! Anything you could fit in this bag was yours, and let me just tell you I came out on top. I think my favorite grab was a pair of white Current/Elliot jeans. They’re a little snug (and I’m so mad at myself for not grabbing the next size up!) but gives me incentive to start working on this booty, ha! I also grabbed tons of basic tops that can be paired with anything and everything and can we every have enough basics?! Didn’t think so!

Here are 3 pointers for your next Le Garage Sale…

1.) Make a list! The biggest thing for me at events like this is to have a list of everything I want or am looking for so I don’t get distracted (which can be easy to do!).
2.) Think ahead. You might find a lot of cute summer items but with fall just around the corner, make sure you can wear it in the next 6 months. No one wants to look back in a year and wonder why the heck they bought that.
3.) Wear comfy clothes. Some booths have pop-up dressing rooms, but for the ones that don’t you’ll have to try it on where you are. Leave the heels at home, you’re on a mission here!

The next Le Garage Sale is in January so be sure to sign up on their email list so you don’t miss out!!!

Summer Sandal Sale

It’s obvious I’m in denial over here about new seasons (seriously, summer just started), but I can’t bring you guys down with me!!! So, it only makes sense to do what I do best, and thats shop for sales! You got it…I’m all about shopping sales and especially at the end of season. You might be thinking “how does that make any sense?” but honestly, you’ll be so happy you didn’t splurge on that pair of sandals come this time of the year.

Since shoes are my weakness I’ve narrowed down some of my absolute favorites on sale that you can still squeeze into for the next couple of weeks, of course, unless you’re in Texas then make that the next couple of months. If anything, put them aside until spring and it’ll be like shopping in your own closet.
