Black Tank Dress + 8 Classic Pendant Necklaces

So excited to share this outfit post because…well…aside from the fact that I never wear dresses… I found one dress from the Nordstroms website that I am obsessed with. It’s one item I have had my eye for a while now and I finally decided to take the plunge! I saw a girl on Pinterest wearing the exact same dress, with similar accessories and I was totally inspired to recreate this look. Love how this outfit turned out with all the mix of different neutrals. Since I bought this dress online I was real worried about the fit. I’m always real hesitant when it comes to buying clothing online, especially when it comes to dresses. Right when I put this on, it felt like it had been tailored for my body. It’s very figure flattering but sill simple enough to dress it up or down. You could easily layer this in the winter time like I did or just add some fun heels for a night out. Definitely a new staple piece in my wardrobe.

Shop the Look:

Dress: Nordstroms (exact) —- comes in 7 colors

Cardigan: Target (similar) (another option)

Boots: Target (similar)(lighter option) (splurge option)

Necklace: Stella & Dot (exact)—comes in silver & rose gold

To give you a better idea how this dress fits I am 5’3 & 1/2 ( and yes the half inch counts) and I’m curvy.So in most stores I typically wear a size 8. I am wearing a size medium in this dress and it fits perfectly. It’s tight enough in all the right places and the material is thick enough so it’s doesn’t look see through at all.

To add to this look I added my favorite pendant necklace from Stella & Dot. It’s one of those classic pieces that goes with just about everything. Below I added a few similar long pendant necklaces equally as chic that range in price from $12 to $120.

I used a lot of basics to keep these outfits simple but still interchangeable with a few pops of color. Because of the crazy weather we are having with the cold, wind and crazy humidity I had to do mirror outfit selfies for this one.

In addition to these looks are some fun graphic tees that are perfect for Valentines day. All the links to shop are below.

Date night Outfit– Black skinny’s with a simple black top paired with a pop of red for the shoe. If you can’t tell from all these looks I love wearing black, so this head to toe black look might just be my favorite.

To Amp up the Look: For this crazy weather another option to make this outfit a little warmer would be to add a fur vest.— I don’t have one at the moment, but it’s defiantly on my wish list.

I always love celebrating Valentines day because it was the day my husband proposed 6 years ago, so it’s always a very sentimental day for the both of us. Let me know which look was your favorite and how your celebrating V day this year. 🙂

Outfit: Navy, Gray & Black

It’s finally December and it’s still warm outside, well cool in the mornings and warm in the afternoons. So I wanted to put together a kind of transitional outfit for this crazy weather we are having. To transition this look to the afternoon, just switch the boots for some comfy flats and lose the vest. This is one my favorite outfit combinations for fall, a long vest over a top with leggings and boots. I’m going to be honest the top is not as long as I would like, but I loved the color combination of the navy plaid with the gray vest. Like most of my looks this one is very simple, easy, and a perfect casual fall outfit. 🙂

::Outfit Details::
Top: Target (exact,similar option)
Vest:Very old (similar option) (another option)
Leggings:BCBG (similar pair)
Boots:Target (similar, another option)
Necklace: Stella & Dot (exact)
Bracelet: Kendra Scott (same style in rose gold)
Ring:Initial “m” ring (same)

Outfit: Cheetah Print

Nothing like a little cheetah print to lighten your day. Just got this sweater as an early birthday gift and I jumped at the chance to feature it in a blog post. Being that I live in central Texas my sweater collection is quite sparse, so this was a perfect addition to my wardrobe. Cheetah print is always a great way to add a little pattern to an outfit but still acts as a neutral. You can easily add a pop of color to the look to make it more interesting. I kept it real simple by adding a scarf and my much loved black boots and black Stella & Dot tote. Now all I hope for is that the colder weather would stick around for a while.

::Outfit Details::
Sweater: Target (exact,long cardigan)
Jeans:Target (similar) (dark wash without the rips)
Boots: old (another option) (similar)
Purse: Stella & Dot (same)
Scarf: old (similar option)

Outfit: Finally Boot Weather

I’m kicking out the start of a brand new week with a casual outfit of the day. Casual and comfortable I might add. I bought this navy jacket almost a month ago and I am just now getting around to wearing it. It’s finally cooling down here in central Texas, so I am ready to bust out my fall/winter wardrobe that’s been hiding in the back of my closet.

So for this look I paired this jacket with my favorite pair of ripped skinny jeans, a white tee, and some comfy grey boots. Keeping things neutral, I added silver jewelry to go with the cool tones in this outfit. I have to say I am completely obsessed with this jacket. It fits well, it’s flattering, and it’s light weight. I can tell I’ll be wearing this one a lot this season. 😉 To shop this look, check out the links below.

Loving this colder weather. It took Texas a while, but it’s finally time to break out the winter clothes and boots.:) This outfit I have been wearing a lot lately, so I thought I would share, because it’s simple, comfortable and you can get it all in one place :). Like most of my closet this whole outfit (minus accessories) are from Target. It’s become my one stop shop for everything. Even with a toddler in tow, it’s the place I can go and get what I need and still shop for myself (which I don’t do often).
It’s so crazy how shopping for yourself changes so much when you become a mom. With a two year old, my shopping places have become… well… limited. If it doesn’t have a grocery cart in the front, we’re not going in. A shopping cart is a must for shopping with your toddler. It holds all your stuff, and helps keep them occupied for a successful mommy and me shopping trip. Even the prep time for shopping with a toddler is so different these days. Before I didn’t need much, just my money and maybe a cup of coffee. Nowadays I have to plan ahead for any shopping excursions we might have.
  
Here’s my short check list of things:
Diaper bag 
Diapers & Wipes
Sippy Cup with her favorite drink
Snacks (a lot of them)
Change of Clothes
Small toys
My Phone Apps (in case of any tantrums)  Here is my daughters favorite app at the moment if your looking for good one that’s free!!

LEGO® DUPLO® Train

Let me know if you have any toddler essentials for a mommy and me shopping trip. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!!
