So it’s no secret by now that olive green is a huge trend this Fall season, which I am loving. My current wardrobe consist of this olive green dress (plus a few others), olive green sweaters, olive green rompers…I cannot get enough. I think this color compliments just about any skin tone, looks amazing with cognac and gold, and just has such an easy/natural feel to it. The olive green trend allows you to add color to your wardrobe, but without straying too far from the neutral family (aka my comfort zone).

This olive green dress was one that I bought, without even trying on (for sizing info, I’m wearing the XS). First of all, because the price is SO good (only $48?! yes please). I also loved the hankerchief hemline, because it reminds of of Tinkerbell! It’s so fun to twirl in. I also figured I’d get a ton of use out of it because it’s perfect for Baylor games, and will look great with riding boots, as well as booties!

olive trench coat: your new fall staple

Even though I’ve pretty much loved fashion since I was in the womb, there’s one wardrobe staple that I hadn’t yet obtained until this season: a trench coat. I always love how they look, but I feel like they are so New York, or…some city that’s not Dallas. When I saw this one though, I knew I had to have it! It’s oversized which gives it a more casual look, and it’s pretty lightweight which makes it perfect for Dallas weather. So, if you’re new to this wardrobe staple too, go for this olive trench coat! Such a great purchase.

Naturalizer boot

As a girl who loves and lives fashion, I often get asked the question who my inspiration is when it comes to fashion, or when I first knew I loved fashion. My answers to these questions always comes back to my mom, which is why I am so excited to introduce ya’ll to her today in today’s post!

naturalizer-bootnaturalizer-bootMy mom and I are both wearing the Naturalizer Jordie boot (mine in grey and her’s in brown). What I love about the Naturalizer boot is that you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. We walked around in these boots all day and our feet still felt great at the end of the day!

Another thing that I love about this Naturalizer boot is that it will never go out of style. I’m wearing it now as a 25-year-old newly wed who is a major Dallas and fashion girl, and my mom is wearing them as a new grandmother who also values trends and style! You can shop this boot and more on Naturalizer.com!

the perfect fall dress

olive-green-fall-dress olive-green-fall-dressThis olive green fall dress ya’ll. I was at the mall returning something and then I laid eyes on this and without trying it on, I bought it. First of all, I love the olive green color. Second of all, it was less than $60. And lastly, I knew I’d be able to wear it anywhere and everywhere. I’ve worn it with a denim jacket, I’ve worn it with a long cardigan, and I’ve worn it by itself. Such a good purchase!

denim + cable knit

I will be the first to admit – I was really hesitant about this denim skirt trend. I love the 70s vibe of it, but personally felt like I couldn’t pull it off. That all changed though the second I actually tried this one on. The combination of high-waisted + A-line basically equals the most flattering thing you could ever put on. I also love this denim skirt because it gives you variety when you don’t just want to wear jeans. Dallas has been really slow to enter into fall, so this is a great alternative to dress “fall”, without burning up!

I’ve also always been a fan of semi-cropped sweaters but since I’m tall-ish, I’ve had a hard time knowing what to pair it with. I love pairing this cable knit sweater with the denim skirt – the skirt is high waisted so I don’t have to worry about the sweater being too short, and I think cable knit and denim is such a classic look!

a new closet fave

You know you made a good purchase when you buy something that you never want to take off. And you repeat the same outfit 3 times in one week because you love it so much. That’s exactly how I feel about this faux shearling vest.

What I love about this (faux) shearling vest is how versatile it is. It hasn’t been cold enough in Texas yet for a big heavy vest, but I’ve been able to wear this one with a short-sleeved tee because it’s pretty light-weight! It also has pockets and is the softest thing in the world.

The other great thing about this shearling vest is that you can make it as dressy or casual as you want. I paired mine with distressed skinny jeans but you could also do it with a black skinny pant and heels for a dressier look!
