Happy Friday babes! I’ve been trying to juggle school, work, studying for the bar and blogging this past week and things have been a tad crazy! And during all the insanity, I realized I hardly share professional attire, which is ironic, because I wear it a good chunk of the week. So here’s my perspective on work wear and how to integrate your personal sense of style into it! These two looks are super easy recreate if you’re looking for some office appropriate inspo and can be easily updated with items you already own or some of the options I’ve linked!…

I recently discovered Morning Lavender and can’t believe how lucky I am to collaborate with them and show off two of their gorgeous skirts! I honestly had a hard time selecting two products off their website because I loved so many of their pieces. They have a large collection and are getting new arrivals in all the time (I will be shopping them for Spring pieces and a friend’s wedding next year!) What I love about them is their diversity of styles, colors and affordable prices. Every time I check their website I feel like there is something I can’t leave without!
The first skirt I want to share with y’all is the Annabelle Black-Beige Tulle Maxi skirt because I don’t believe you can have enough tulle skirts in your closet and these contrasting colors are stunning! This skirt does not wrinkle easily and has a very romantic feel to it! It’s an absolutely timeless piece you can dress up for a black tie event or wear with a t-shirt to your local farmer’s market. I love how it retains an A-line shape and I can’t wait to wear it out to an upcoming ballet!!!
The second item I selected was this metallic maxi for an even more dramatic look! It reminds me of all things whimsical and winter and can be easily worn with your favorite sweater. The skirt has a slit on the right side and plenty of fabric to play with. I wore this on the day after Thanksgiving as Thomas and I explored Dripping Springs and couldn’t help but dance in the middle of the street!
If you have a special occassion (or not) coming up, I can’t encourage you enough to go check out Morning Lavender because there is definitely something you’ll love!
AND if you are newly engaged, these dresses would also make beautiful bridesmaids dresses for your besties and they could wear multiple times! I’ve linked several of my favorites for you to peruse!
I have finally decided to share a couple of blogs highlighting our wedding in August (I know, about time)! This blog is about my gorgeous bridesmaids and some custom jewelry Grace and Charm designed for them!!! I was at a loss on what to gift my two maids of honor and two new sisters (in-law) until the team at Grace and Charm reached out and offered to design some pieces for each of them. It was the most thoughtful gesture and allowed me to feel like each piece came from the heart…plus they are stunning and made locally, in Austin! We worked hard to make sure they would be able to continue wearing the pieces and serve as a little reminder of how loved they are!
One of my sisters-in-law happened to be in town for the consultation and went along with me! We had such a blast working with Rebecca finding the individual stones and designs for the jewelry. In the end, we designed three necklaces (two long, one short), a ring, and a pair of earrings. Rebecca was amazing and let us customize everything from the chain type, length and even the individual stones (We literally spent two hours playing with stones and finding the exact ones we wanted).
I seriously can’t believe Thanksgiving is next week! I swear this year has been the fastest of my entire life and such a good one! I absolutely love shopping for holiday wear and had so much fun combing through my favorite sites for the perfect looks. For Thanksgiving I am planning a cozy knit dress because Thomas and I are escaping to a cabin for the day and for Christmas I am leaning towards the red dress in the fourth row on the left. I already purchased it and it fits like a dream! And for New Year’s Eve I purchased the scalloped sequin dress on the second to last row but hopefully I will go to more than one event and can snag another or two!
To help those of you who get overwhelmed with online shopping I hope this simplifies the process for you. I threw this gift guide together and will be posting on my stories periodically dresses for the holidays as we get closer. There is still time to order pieces for Thanksgiving but make sure you get on it. The ones I ordered I will be posting on my Instagram and give my opinions of each. I tried to offer a variety of styles from sequin to velvet and hot pink to neutrals. I have linked everything below but reach out if you have questions!
Happy Hump day!
