Trending: Sweater Tanks for Fall

Sweater tank: RiffRaff | Linen pants: Old Navy (sold out) | Clutch: Francesca's (sold out) | Cuff bracelet: BaubleBar | Link bracelet: BaubleBar | Earrings: BaubleBar

Is it just me or is anyone else obsessed with sweater tanks for the upcoming seasons? Racer-back, turtleneck, cowl neck, thermal, ribbed, you name it and I want it (or already bought it lol). I've found them to be perfect for wearing underneath those big ol' coats, especially perfect when not having to worry about shoving thick sweater sleeves into your coats!  I already bought like 8... but I know they'll be worn so much!

These tops are the best transitional pieces as we're quickly coming up on Fall. Can you believe it's the end of August already?! As my last ditch effort to wear white pants before Labor Day, I've paired this mustard sweater tank from RiffRaff with these wide-leg linen pants. It's the easiest transitional outfit for brunch or a night out. I've linked my outfit below along with other sweater tanks I've already purchased and what I have my eyes on! I'd suggest snagging these up while they're at good (more like amazing) prices because I smell a trend coming and these babies will sell fast.

Home Tour: Patio Furniture

Sweater: Halogen from Nordstrom | V-neck tank: Tresics from TjMaxx | Sneakers: Michael Kors from Macy's | Earrings: on sale from BaubleBar | Sweater mug: Spot Section at Target

So I'm back and I've recuperated from my Tokyo trip. Now we're all moved into our new, bigger unit! This past weekend was a drag trying to move everything and clean the last apartment, but this week has been filled with organizing and redecorating (my favorite). The new place is slowly but surely coming together. My outfit about sums up how I am feeling about Fall coming. I just can't wait! The weather has been cooler and rainy here in Dallas for the past week which is making me super excited for Fall!!

My transitional outfit includes this side-slit sweater from the #Nsale but you can still purchase it here. It's definitely one of my favorite purchases from the sale. It's super comfy and soft, perfect for Fall and Winter! My basic v-neck tank is from TjMaxx for $6.99 (the brand is Tresics, they always have such comfy basics)! My Michael Kors sneaks were a birthday gift from Hunter's mom Wendy. Aren't they so fun?! They just scream my name haha. This style is sold out but you can buy a similar pair here or here (or click the images below)! I love that I can wear these with a casual outfit or dress it up a bit since they're "fancier" sneaks!!

With this new unit came a humongous balcony that has a view of the Dallas skyline (not the best thanks to power lines, but whatever haha). We are so excited to spend time out on our balcony this Fall. I've been on the search for some comfy furniture to fill the space and make it perfect for guests! I came across this set at TjMaxx in Dallas when I was shopping for bathroom accessories! It's not comfy, but it was on clearance...major, major clearance. The chairs were $12 each and the bistro table was $16. Like...what? Is this even real? I don't know how often I need to preach to you guys that TjMaxx and HomeGoods are THE way to go for home decor and furniture! There's still a ways to go with making our balcony perfect but this set was a great start.

Have you met Luna yet?! The adorable, to-die-for-eared pup stealing the spotlight in these pics is Hunter and I's 16-week old mutt. We've adopted her about a month ago from DFW Rescue Me. They aren't positive on her breed but they were sure she had pitbull in her. Hunter is convinced that she's likely a basenji-pitbull mix after googling. She's the sweetest little pup, so cuddly and playful. I couldn't believe that she was a stray when they found her!! She's already grown so much since we got her and I'm getting so sentimental about it!!!! If you're local, definitely consider this organization to adopt from if you're in the market for a pup. They were such a joy and super easy to work with and I still stay in touch with Becky, Luna's foster mom!

Hope everyone has a fab weekend!! I'll be busy purging things we don't need, organizing, decorating, you know...the usual! :)

Travel: Luggage Style | Nordstrom Giveaway #2

Sweater: Nordstrom (Nsale) | Booties: Nordstrom (Nsale) | Suitcase: Macy's | Tote: Tory Burch | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban


| Don't forget to enter for a chance to win $1350 gift card to Nordstrom at the end of this post! |


This sweater and my booties are two of my favorite items from the #nsale. It was the absolute best choice I made for travel attire. These Franco Sarto booties are TO-DIE-FOR and are so comfy! I've explored and worked in them since I've been in Tokyo and my feet are still happy. This Love by Design lace-up sweater is extremely breathable and cozy at the same time. It was the perfect pick for a cold flight. There are just a few sizes and colors left of both the sweater and booties, but I am hoping they restock soon for you guys!! 

I received a lot of comments and emails about my suitcase and wanted to share with you guys some great luggage options! I try to find practical and great quality luggage and the fact that this 4-wheeled DVF luggage is super cute makes it even better! I bought this on sale at Macy's but Hunter and I find some really stylish luggage at TjMaxx and HomeGoods. Luggage sets can get really expensive but it's worth the investment if you do quite a bit of traveling. 


What do you pack in your suitcase?! I will be traveling much more than I have before with my new company so I am still getting the hang of packing all of the right things. Once I get a good consensus of frequent packing down, I'd love to share what essentials I pack!

Emil Sunglasses & Nordstrom Giveaway #2

Hunter and I do our best to recycle and be sustainable where it counts. If you are anything like us, you'll love this new sunglasses line a friend of mine from college has started recently! His company is called Emil Sunglasses (click here to head to his website). 

The great thing about these sunglasses is not only are they stylish, they give back to this beautiful planet we call Earth. Emil Sunglasses partnered with Trees for the Future and with every pair sold, they donate the proceeds necessary to plant 10 trees! What an amazing way to give back organically to the world. I am such a fan of the wood styles lately and wood frames?! How cool are these?! They are great quality and very durable. And as silly as it sounds, the packaging is so awesome. A sleek cylindrical case with a dust bag inside!

If you happen to like donating to great causes and helping the environment, click here to help kickstart Emil Sunglasses to reach their goal. Plant a tree, wear Emil.

HOME TOUR: 10 Tips for Coffee Table Styling


Our living room is my favorite room of our apartment. It's where everyone gathers to talk about their day, watch a movie together, and where I love to cozy up on the weekends! I've recently started to redecorate and purge some things as I think about how I want our new unit to look. I. Can't. Wait!

I took the picture above last week as a 'sneak peak' of what our living room will incorporate! It's definitely a different vibe then my previous styling (see pictures below). Then that led me to want to share some tips on styling your own coffee table. Of course these tips are based on my opinions, so no scientific methods here! :)
1| Add something living. Whether you love tulips, succulents or just like pretty leaves, add some life to your table! This gives your table an organic element rather than just solid objects. A vase of gorgeous pink peonies will brighten your table and will be the first thing your guests notice!

2| Pick out a tray for your coffee table. You'll want to find one that compliments your coffee table in your own personal style. For my table, I used to have a marble rectangular tray that added a different shape and material to the mix. I was going for a modern glam look then, but I've recently switched to a more modern-rustic look and bought a new wood and chrome square tray that compliments my table and new media console! Overall, a tray helps divide your coffee table into sections for a neater look and is a great way to display smaller decor pieces so they don't look so random.

3| Grab some coffee table books. You don't have to go all out and get expensive designer books such as the Chanel or Dior Collections but grab some that at least compliment the style you're going for (preferably some with appealing covers)! Don't over-stack, 2 or 3 books is usually enough. And if you have a large enough table to do multiple stacks, put a stack on the lower shelf to draw the eyes around the table. I've gotten quite a few of my coffee table books from thrift stores if that interests you!

4| Find decor that stands out. I love finding decor that's different and odd! As you may know, pineapples are my favorite to decorate with. But I've got unusual things like spikes (or here) and skulls.

5| Incorporate some color! While you're picking out your decor pieces, be sure to look for your favorite color, a color that pops, or one that fits the color scheme of your room. Adding this small detail will help draw your guests' eyes to your coffee table, usually one of the main focal points of your room!

6| Utilize air space. Decor with height can help add more dimension to your coffee table. A tall vase with flowers or pedestal spike like mine keeps your table interesting.

7| Appeal to more than sight! Light a candle and place it on your book stack to keep your living room smelling fresh. I always get compliments on how great our apartment smells. And I like to think it's because we frequently light candles in almost every room haha. Even when one isn't burning when guests arrive, they smell the lingering pineapple scent or some other flavor!

8| Place a set of coasters on your coffee table. You won't regret it. I hate a dirty table, especially cup rings (they drive me nuts). Fun coasters will interest your guests, they're usually great conversation pieces and they help keep your table clean!

9| Put together groupings. Gathering items of different heights in groups can make your table more dimensional and also help divide your table for an organized look.

10| Style with your personality. Not all of these tips will be for you but my best tip is to style your coffee table with items you love and show your personality. But just be sure to take into consideration adding height, different composite materials, and sticking to your theme!

How do you style your coffee table? Post a pic and tag me! I'd love to see how you decorate yours. I've rounded up some great coffee table items from Nordstrom's big sale below in honor of the last day to enter a huge giveaway for you guys! Read below to enter!!
