Connecting the Dots
Happy weekend!!! Can you believe it is already mid February? 2017 seems to be flying by! And in all the rush, I sometimes find it can be a struggle to find an outfit that is comfortable and fashionable, which is why I wanted to share this darling blazer that connects the dots between the two!!! If you know me, you know I love any kind of blazer. I love how versatile and elegant they are.
But this Dot jacket specifically can complete a work outfit, or elevate your favorite ripped jeans and a tee to shabby chic. The blazer is lightweight and nips at the waist for a flattering feminine figure. Because of its uniform polka dots, it is nearly impossible to find something that it won’t go with. I can’t wait to continue pairing it with anything from bright color dresses to classic work looks.
I chose to combine it with a whimsical Betsey Johnson purse…because really, who doesn’t love Betsey Johnson. It is the ideal duo for a sweetheart look! The bag is just big enough to keep all my necessary items (wallet, phone, laptop, textbook…essentially my whole life) without showing I am carrying the world inside. I hope you all love this styling as much as I do!
Cheers to the weekend,

The Lady & the Pug
It’s only a month into my second semester in law school and my head has been spinning. I have been staying up late on weekdays to finish my daily reading and still feeling a bit overwhelmed on weekends when I have more time to get through the assignments. I was lucky enough to break the monotonous reading motif of life in law school this past weekend with some leisurely time. I spent Saturday with my amazing friend and photographer, Kimberlee Phoenix, and her adorable pug Buster. We attempted, emphasis on “attempted,”to take Buster for a walk which ended in Kimberlee and I laughing at his sweet antics.
Besides enjoying the benefits of friendship, I was excited to try on a few of the pieces I recently ordered from Cabi’s new Spring line “Je Ne Sais Quoi.” I am still obsessing over their “Isla” wedge which are so colorful and cute. I love the tassles that hang at your ankles contrasted with the bright print on the heels. They can take a simple outfit like jeans and a t-shirt and transform it to a beach flair ensemble. I threw on the “Victory” sweater over a denim mini and a soft white tee for a clean spring look. The asymmetrical sleeves emphasize its cheekiness and can easily be paired with the Isla wedges. This dynamic duo will definitely be my go-to look this spring when I need something easy to throw on. I think it would also be super cute with colored shorts.

I have never been to Spain but it is a place I imagine so charming words can’t express. The geometric embroidery details and metallic studs add a modern twist to the traditional style of matadors. I couldn’t help but invite some Spanish influence into my closet!
I absolutely love the turquoise and gold strands that zig-zag throughout creating such a unique statement piece. My initial thought was to pair it with jeans and heels for a night out look, but after further thought the right skirt could add a whole new level to this jacket. It is incredibly light-weight and I can’t wait for the weather to cool off a bit more so I can wear it again!
So until an opportunity arises where I can jet-set over to Spain to visit the Sagrada Familia and race the bulls in Pamplona, my Spanish curiosity will be amused by my new jacket.

The Amour blouse from Cabi is currently my favorite fall/winter piece I own from them. I am not the biggest fan of bold prints but this one is so well balanced that I couldn’t resist ordering it. Like most of Cabi’s pieces it has a flattering fit with a feminine, colorful design. Beyond the elegant clothing Cabi produces, it is a brand I highly believe in.
Cabi prides itself as being an “elegantly different” company for women to work and shop. It has built a community of women who encourage and challenge each other through their career in fashion. If you have never heard of the company, it essentially creates an alternative occupation for women who enjoy flexibility and individual growth. Cabi stylists bring the clothes to you in the comfort of your home to try on and style before purchasing. It is a really fun experience to shop Cabi with your friends, and the clothes are never a disappointment. If you would like to learn more about the company and the amazing women behind it check out at https://www.cabionline.com/what-is-cabi/.
And if the Amour blouse has piqued your interest, the Spring 2017 line has just launched! I have little self-control when it comes to Cabi so I have already written up my wish list for this season! 😉 Yes, Veranda top I am talking about you.
Hope y’all had a great weekend!

Touch of Pollock
Stilettos will always be a go-to for me. But when they are paired with a print of my favorite Jackson Pollock painting as a scarf I couldn’t be happier. The scarf was a gift my sister brought back from New York and has always been a unique accessory. To complete the look, I bundled-up in blue jeans, a sleeveless peplum, an oversized gray cardigan, white stilettos complimented with a modern black handbag. I played with both a small purse and simple clutch.
This outfit had to be worn to none other than the lovely Pearl area of San Antonio. Several friends and I enjoyed a warm cup of coffee from Hotel Emma’s coffee shop before heading for a stroll along the Riverwalk to soak in some warm Texas winter weather.
