mother’s day gift ideas

With Mother's Day a little over a week away, it's time (if you haven't already started) to find your mom the perfect gift. Buying gifts for my mom is incredibly difficult. It's not that she's hard to shop for, it's just that I don't feel like any gift I buy her is adequate enough to thank her for all she's done for me! I hate to be cheesy (or biased) but I do have the best mom ever.Read More →

One of my favorite things about going grocery shopping is picking up fresh flowers – anyone else?

monday meetings

Okay, so I don’t really have any meetings today, but it’s always fun to dress the part, right? Silk blouses are my go-to for the everyday here in Dallas, and as I’ve professed on here before, Equipment is my favorite. I own many an Equipment blouse, but the one I reach for most is this classic sleeveless style . It’s particularly great...Read More →

day & night / part two

As promised in Monday’s post , here is how I have styled this Tibi LBD for a night out! With the dress being as solid and simple as it is, a little fringe on my feet and colorful accessories seemed like a wonderful option to brighten it up. These shoes have been putting a smile on my face ever since I bought them. They’re the perfect balance of fashionable and...Read More →
