Casual Style: Boots and jeans

Top: Ann Taylor $21 * Scarf: Target $10 * Jacket: Forever 21 (last fall)(similar) * Jeans: JC Penney $25 (similar) * Boots: Nina (very old)(similar) * Bag: Cole Haan (gifted)

Happy Wednesday and Happy Halloween!
I wore this outfit this past Saturday, when it was super windy, as you can tell, and the weather finally cooled down. And yes, wearing white after Labor day is definetely ok, at least in my book : ) And I finally got to wear boots! I am on the hunt for the perfect pair of cognac boots. I am looking at these Steve Madden pair or these BP Runway. And they are on sale!

Such a beautiful quote from an amazing song. Reminds me of how just a few years ago, I was truly lost, but because of His Amazing Grace, I am right where I am supposed to be!

Casual Style: Navy and cobalt blue

Tee: Target $8 * Pants: Vera Wang via Kohl's (Spring 2012)(similar) * Blazer: Loft (old) * Shoes: Rock and Republic via Kohl's $35 * Bag: Cole Haan (gifted) * Necklace: Target (old)

Happy Tuesday!
I wore this last week for dinner out with the girls. We went to a casual setting, almost a sports bar, and many people were still dressed from work. This could also be worn on a casual friday at work. I am always looking for new ways to wear my cobalt shoes, and I like how they add a bit of color to my otherwise neutral outfit.

Happy Monday!
We had a busy Halloween weekend. We went to our neighborhood's block party with Jayden and my sister and nephew during the day. The weather really dropped this past weekend, and we only hung out for a couple of hours. B and I also went to a party that night at a friend's house. We had a great time catching up with old friends!
Thanks for reading!


A great message to start your week!

Life Style: Jayden's Halloween Soccer game

A picture a day challenge

I slacked on Thursday. Here is Friday's picture of the day. Right before bedtime as Jayden runs away from me.

Saturday's pictures

Nikon 55-200m ISO 200 f8.0 1/20s

Happy Saturday!
I made up for Thursday's lack of picture of the day. Here are a few shots from Jayden's Halloween soccer game. The kids had a lot of fun, despite a very cold morning (in the low 50s). All due to a cold front. I think I miss my 80 degree weather now!

Photography Style: Pumpking Patch

Pumpkin Patch, Take 2
Wednesday 10/24
Nikon 55-200 mm F4.5 ISO 800 1/250s

Happy Thursday!
We made it out to the pumpkin patch last night with the family. My cousin, and her 4 kids, my sister and nephew, Jayden and I had a great time picking pumpkins. I took the chance to take a lot of pictures, as you can see. Her 3 month old twins are adorable, and the boys love squeezing their little cheeks. The boys also took the chance to play in the playground and act like the little boys they are : )

God has placed it in my heart to really work on this. So I'm sharing with you, as it is a nice reminder!

Work Style: Navy polka dots and coral

Top: J Crew Factory $29.50 * Skirt: J Crew Factory $40 * Belt: Bought locally $6 * Clutch: Aldo Outlet (old) * Shoes: Steve Madden via Marshall's $39.99

Today's look is another polka dot look. I have said it before, I'm so glad polka dots are still going strong this fall. The top and skirt are recent buys from J Crew Factory while they were having their 30% off sale. The top was actually a lot brighter that I thought it would be. Thank goodness for this Texas heat. I can still pull off bright colors in October!
Are you loving polka dots (still!) this fall?

Weekend Style: Gray and mint

Happy Monday!
I wore this to church yesterday and liked how the mint (and turquoise) stand out against the gray tones of my shirt and jacket. I decided to mix prints, subtly, with the snakeskin (of my shoes and my bag) and the gigham print of my shirt. I wish I could wear jeans or corduroys to work because this will also work.
Thanks for reading!

PS Sorry for the blurry pictures. B was more interested in watching the Texans game than taking pictures. Really?!


This simple message is a great reminder to not worry and leave it all to Him!
