I like to think of myself as a fairly practical person, which very much plays itself out in my wardrobe. I tend to migrate towards pieces that I can wear everyday, that are versatile, that I can wear both to church and on date night (follow me on instagram, and you’ll see I’m obsessed with neutrals + anything oversized). The look below though, is an exception to my comfort zone staples. When I first saw this bright pink skirt, I thought it was so fun but so not my typical look. Once I had it on though, I fell in love, because practicality can only take you so far. Everyone needs their go-to look for their own birthday dinner, their best friend’s bachelorette party or a trendy date night out. Sometimes I have to force myself to put down the boyfriend jeans, and branch out!
I had such a blast walking around the Bishops Arts district in Dallas with the oh-so-talented Lindsey Shea in this bright pink A-line skirt that I paired with my favorite leather jacket for the Fall season. This jacket is great because it’s light weight and can either be dressed up or down. It will pair great with any piece in your wardrobe!
I dressed this look down a bit with my favorite Madewell booties, since it was during the day and we were just walking around town. But a great pair of strappy heels (like these, by Dolce Vita – see them below on Lo!) would complete this outfit perfectly.
What about you? Let us know what pieces in your wardrobe have got you stepping out of your comfort zone!
Champagne, sweets, dj, beautiful clothes at reasonable prices…talk about my version of heaven! All of these goodies + more made for one heck of a grand opening for Riffraff this past Friday.
Up until last Friday, Riffraff has been a boutique with one location in Downtown Fayettville, Arkansas. I’ve been a frequent online shopper with this adorable boutique for some time now (shopriffraff.com), so I was ecstatic when they announced opening a location in Dallas!
As much as I love online shopping and the Riffraff website, this boutique (located in Preston center, conveniently close to Sprinkles cupcakes!) truly fosters such a fun and positive atmosphere to shop in. Whether you’re looking for a new dress for date night, a trendy gameday look, or a gift for your best friend’s birthday, this boutique is your one stop shop!
So for all you Dallas-ites, get to shopping! And for everyone else, make sure you check out shopriffraff.com and follow @riffraffdallas on insta!
Here’s what I wore to the grand opening: black lace tank – milk & honey boutique. Caged stone necklace – milk & honey boutique. OPI “you don’t know jacques” nail polish. Zara boyfriend jeans (similar – here)
Happy Friday everyone! Here are our 5 Friday Faves for this week:
Speaking of the oversized fedora trend, I myself have fallen in love with it. I love that the hat can pair perfectly with a great maxi skirt for a bohemian look, or [like i wore it below], it could be a great statement piece to pair with a basic and classic dress. I love this one from Madewell because the sleeveless aspect allows you to wear it during warmer months, but the material is super comfortable and keeps you warm as temps cool off. See the links below to shop my look!

clearly, I am a major hat fan, and recently I stumbled across this designer who just made my fall wish list a whole lot prettier.

Technically speaking, end of September should equal cool weather coupled with sweaters, scarves & riding boots. For us Texans though, we’ve got a few more weeks of higher temps till we’re pulling out our parkas. Knit dressing is a huge trend for this Fall, which is one reason I’m crazy about this aztec print tank. Pair it with boyfriend jeans or a maxi skirt, throw a denim shirt over it, and you’ve got a great summer to fall look.
