You may have seen this Dolce & Gabbana inspired ASOS frock on my Instagram more than once – it’s certainly the most festive look in my closet these days. Perfect for all of this season’s holiday parties! This dress sold out almost immediately when it first hit the site, but it’s now back in stock (and available in green!). On Thursday I attended a family friend’s Christmas fete and didn’t even have to think about what I was going to wear – this dress was an obvious choice! Although it certainly looks festive for the holidays, I plan to wear it all year to various cocktail parties and maybe even a few weddings. ASOS is a great place to find party dresses – if you’re looking for a New Year’s number, I suggest this bouncy fit-and-flare frock, this sparkling shift or this quilted metallic number. Also loving this option for more winter parties. For spring, be sure to check out this bright orange + pink mini and this textured pencil dress – so fun!

PS – don’t you just love a festive beauty look for the holidays? I had my longtime friend and talented makeup artist, Katherine Crenshaw, come over to make me look pretty for the party! With a simple (but bold) red lip and glittering gold eyes, I was ready and out the door in minutes, thanks to K! For all of your beauty needs, big or small, contact Katherine!

This is the first fall in a long time where we’ve experienced an actual “changing of the leaves”. So often in Texas the temps shoot from blazing hot to freezing cold, without so much as a blink of the eye. We typically don’t get to enjoy the four seasons like other states further north, which is unfortunate. But this year… COLOR! It’s so refreshing. I love turning the corner only to see red, orange and yellow leaves gleaming in the golden light. It’s kinda the perfect backdrop for photos, don’t you think? Remember this post? How pretty is that tree?! Let’s just say I’m sad to see them go.

Many of you already know about the Parisian brand IRO, mostly known for their amazing shoes and jackets. This season, however, a new piece has come to the forefront for the brand and is constantly in high demand: the distressed tee. Everywhere you look, this style is sold out. That is until I went into SCOOP NYC at Highland Park Village one morning only to discover this long sleeved version. Obsessed! After spending weeks not finding it online, I looked again yesterday and found that this shirt is now available on Singer22! I love the relaxed look and fit of this tee – it offers a little more depth and edge to the classic t-shirt. A great style for weekends and nights out! Click here to shop more chic styles by IRO.
