Happy Monday y’all! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen that I’ve spent the last few days in Austin. My family and I attended a fun wedding at The Driskill on Saturday, where I sported this sunny yellow Valentino number. It’s another amazing steal from my recent trip to Last Call, where I also got this red Givenchy blazer. It couldn’t have been better timing to find this dress, considering I have so many weddings this season! The soft yellow shade quickly captured my attention, but the pretty braided straps and waistline (and useful pockets) sold me. Yellow may just be my new favorite color! Shop some other gorgeous pieces in this bright and happy hue below.

On Sunday, I went to church with the fam, followed by brunch at new Austin restaurant, Chavez. The space is modern and sleek, and it overlooks Lady Bird Lake – best view in Austin for a meal, don’t you think? How did you spend your Easter weekend?

You know the days where you feel like you have so many clothes but nothing to wear? That happens to me a lot, and on those days I gravitate towards my favorite classic pieces. Not surprisingly, these tend to be neutrals. I’ve had this faux leather jacket since my Nordstrom x Topshop event in October and wear it at least once a week – it’s a wonderful basic that’s great to throw on over a tee + jeans combo or a more dressy ensemble like this outfit. I kind of can’t believe the jacket still available, mostly because it’s only $85! This silk Theory top is a recent acquisition but I’ve worn it multiple times already - it’s a simple silk piece, but the layered look makes it a touch more elegant. It’s easy and looks chic with any bottoms. The skirt was a Nordstrom sale find and is now sold out unfortunately, but this Alexander Wang look-a-like is a close second. This trio of colors is abundant in my closet and I am constantly jumping back to them when I’m bored of prints and loud details. What are your go-to items on days like this?

PS – I’m driving down I-35 this morning heading back to Austin for Easter weekend – how you are spending it? Hope you have a happy weekend and eat lots of Reese’s peanut butter eggs!

While I may not be going to any music festivals this spring, it doesn’t mean I can’t dress the part! When the weather is nice in Dallas, my friends and I love plopping down on the patio at a fun bar or restaurant to enjoy the sunshine and lounge all day. On these days, I like to dress comfortably and cool (especially since Dallas is known for it’s scorcher afternoons). While I love a good pair of distressed denim shorts, I haven’t found a pair I like enough to buy this season. They tend to all be too short – anyone else having that problem? As an alternative to distressed denim shorts, I found a great tailored pair of white shorts that are both the perfect length and rise. Since my style isn’t very boho anyway, these shorts are just what I was looking for! Style them with a gauzy embroidered top and booties for a festival-inspired look, or your favorite tank and leather sandals for an everyday summer outfit. The shorts are only $20, so I stocked up and got three colors. I’ll be wearing them all summer long! These blue sandals are faux leather and are also only $20. You can’t beat a deal like that!

Happy Monday! Late last night I returned from my brief trip to La Jolla for my friend’s wedding (check out my Instagram for photos!). It was such a blast to catch up with old friends from SMU that I haven’t seen in years and celebrate, but boy am I tired! You may remember this dress from this post in Carmel from last month. It was too chilly then for me to wear it bare-legged, but last week in Dallas the weather was too perfect not to pull it out again. This printed dress is super light and airy, making it wearable on even the hottest Texas days this summer. If you love this print, you should also check out the Barbara skirt, the Morgan skirt and the Gigi top. Some other pieces I’m eyeing from OTTE include this striped asymmetrical hem top, these snake-print silk pants, and this classic sleeveless blouse with a tie at the waist.
