Yes. You. Are. There are some really amazing changes coming to the blog. It’s getting facelift and in the mean time, I’m going to take a small break from writing. But don’t worry more amazing sustainable fashion is to come. Think of this like how when your favorite show ( The Walking Dead, Wendy Williams, Modern Family) season comes to an end and you are faced with re-runs until it’s return. That’s kind of how things are going to work here. I will keep you posted on all of the new changes to come and I’m going to reminisce on some of my favorite blog posts. As most of you may know by now, I am pregnant… I kid I kid. I am not pregnant! I REPEAT I am not pregnant! I just wanted to see if you were awake out there. 🙂 Sometimes I think that I am truly writing to myself on this blog. But I really desire to connect with you guys! My blog is making it’s transition to a sustainable fashion blog and I might find ways to incorporate some beauty and fitness in too! 😉 I really want to hone in on sustainable fashion because I love to see how companies are creating new and innovative ways to protect our environment and to help people. It is a worthy cause and its a way to incorporate something I love (STYLE) with a philanthropic cause.

A few seasons ago, Rihanna began wearing her pajamas out and about. Don’t tell me why. Maybe the girl was too tired to find something more appropriate to put on. I’m a huge fan of wearing slip dresses during the day time because I love silk. It’s such a feminine and sexy look. I don’t care if it’s meant for the bedroom. As long as its an appropriate length and isn’t too provocative I’ll wear it out. That’s why when I spotted this Top Shop silk pajama top, I knew I had to have it.
Can you tell I’m excited about Fall fashion? I’ve been having so much fun looking at magazines and blogs and choosing the trends I like and the ones I’ll stay away from. Surprisingly though, I didn’t have to spend much time on the shoes portion because they pretty much came to me!
Two months ago I bought these perfect little flats( booho! they’ve already sold out! But they have a similar style here!) because I knew they’d be my go to Fall flat. But I still needed a great fall heel or boot. I did boots last year so I knew I’d probably want to do something different. Maybe something strappy… And Black! And what do you know, these perfect lace up stacked heels came calling my name.
Both shoes are from Chinese Laundry and they are really affordable. After my recent success with the brand, I decided to share my favorite fall shoes from Chinese Laundry with you guys! I hope you find your perfect pairing with one of these pretties!
The changing of the seasons is approaching! And with the change, it’s time to stow away (and even toss or donate) these trends in favor of more fall appropriate ones. Admit it! You are so over these trends as much as I am!
Pom Poms are going to have to take a seat for awhile. Unless you get funky with them like I did in this fun D.I.Y. The key is staying away from a beach vibe and going straight for artistic.
As much as I love them, the palm prints have to go. Trust me, I’m sad too! This was one of my favorite motifs. See you next summer!
Today I’m spotlighting the eco-friendly brand Reformation. I absolutely love this brand and it is one of the most stylish eco-friendly fashion lines I’ve come across to date. Not only is everything on trend, but it is also ultra femme. Even if it wasn’t an eco-friendly clothing line, I would still buy their clothes. I’ve picked some of my fall favorites and I know you will absolutely love the picks! Just try not to go crazy on your credit card. ; )
Float away in these sexy frocks !Soft pastels and floral prints keep the romance in the air.
Today’s blog post comes as we inch closer to August, and you know what that means! One month closer to fall fashion!! During the month of August I’ll be giving fall fashion previews. There’s a little trepidation as I type that because here in Texas it is still H-O-T HOT! And that means that I’ll be finding ways to keep cool during my fall shoots. It makes me flash back to last summer when I was doing the Marie Claire photoshoot. It was mid-July and we were supposed to dress in fall fashion. Impossible! So anyways get excited and ready for that!
Today’s outfit is all about that suede, bout that suede, no polyester. Ha! I love suede. It’s one of those fabrics that make you want to reach out and touch it. Plus, with this look, I can carry this over into fall. I adore this suede skirt from Sanctuary. It’s very 60’s.
Funny story about this photo shoot. I woke up very early and had prepared my hair in the cutest twist out. But this Texas humidity was no joke! Absolutely took my curls for a whirl. Embracing the fro was an absolute must! Natural hair cannot be tamed!
This cute skirt can be paired with just about anything. The A-line skirt pairs well with your favorite booties, boosting your fall wardrobe! I also like this Toby Heart version as well. The buttons down the center lend something to the style.
My stacked heels from Groove are from last year and have thus sold out, but here are some of my favorite funky platforms for under $50!
My next venture? That perfect white dress. I love dresses and I actually love white. It’s such a clean and crisp color, like black, and is so flattering on darker skin tones. I have always been afraid of getting it dirty. Anytime I wear white, I have to be sure to carefully pull it over my head to avoid getting my makeup on it. And then there’s the little stains and spills that show up throughout the day. This is why I have avoided the color.
This little bohemian number is perfect for those hot summer days! It can be worn casual with sandals or dressed up with heels for a night out!
