Navy Lace Dress with a Pearl Collar

Betsey Johnson Imitation Pearl & Lace Dress

Okay… how cute is this navy lace dress? The pearl collar has me heart-eye-emoji-ing all over the damn place!

I wore this outfit on Saturday – in the midst of a very fun-filled weekend – to celebrate one of my best friends from my MBA program over brunch. We went to Henry’s Majestic (one of my favorite restaurants in Dallas!) and had such a blast. Plus, this little navy lace dress was such a hit – the pearl collar in particular was the recipient of many compliments.

And the price point doesn’t hurt either.

Red Cocktail Dress for Valentine’s Day & An Announcement!

The moment I saw this red cocktail dress I was like YAAAS. Between the sculpted neckline and the midi-length, I was totally in love.

See? Apparently I can love inanimate objects and pretty dresses. I guess that doesn’t help my state of perpetual singledom but at least I know I’m capable of the emotion. So that’s refreshing.

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Fall and Winter Brunch Recipe

So I actually made these Pumpkin Spice Pancakes a long time ago – back when I created this brunch with Keurig – and never got around to posting the recipe. Until now. So get excited… because I am!

Pancakes are probably one of my top 5 favorite foods. No, really. My top 5 (in no particular order) are pancakes, blueberries, granny smith apples, cucumbers, and pasta. Burgers, brisket, and chicken pho are usually in the top 10, but my top 5 has pretty much been set in stone since I was like 7 years old. I’m nothing if not consistent.

Shop My Instagram Posts

Instagram Roundup

It has been a long-ass time since I last did an Instagram roundup. Like probably almost a year. So… I’m probably a bit overdue on giving y’all a chance to shop some of my looks that never made it to the blog. Apologies for that.

If you don’t yet follow me on Instagram (or you don’t use, you might’ve missed the chance to shop my Instagram posts. BTW / for the record: at any time, you can shop my Instagram posts by clicking “” in the navigation bar at the top of any page on my blog!

PS: I’m wearing this hat, this dress, and these shoes in the photo above!

Bow-Neck Blouse & a 30 Before 30 Update

Bow-Neck Blouse

Happy Monday, friends! I’ve been lazily writing this post all morning because the weekend totally got away from me. (Anybody else out there feel the same?)

Though I left my job back in June, I’ve managed to stay in pretty close contact with many of my old coworkers – especially the ones from the U.K. Due to a work event, they’re all in town this week. So I expect that this week is going to be very crazy, with not a lot of sleep. Because that’s exactly how this weekend was. Saturday was full of pampering, shopping at Northpark (where I picked up this bow-neck blouse!), and dinner at Henry’s Majestic. And then Sunday I tried to make it all better by eating one salad (with beer… because that makes sense) while hiding out from the tornados at my friend’s house.

It was a weird weekend, y’all.

Sales of the Weekend

sales this weekend

There’s nothing like a good sale… and there are so many good sales this weekend in honor of Martin Luther King Day tomorrow.

If the weather where you are is anything like the weather in Dallas right now, it’s the perfect day to stay at home and shop online. Because it’s stay-at-home-and-shop-online weather. Aka drizzly and narsty. Yuck. But, thankfully, I’ve rounded up five of the best sales this weekend below for your shopping (and saving!) pleasure. Happy shopping!
