This is my new favorite top for Fall, and that’s saying a lot because I usually prefer sweaters over anything else during this season! I love the babydoll feel of this top and I’m also really feeling the color and pattern. The fit is TTS. I paired it with light blue denim and some nude suede block heels. I’m 5’10 and normally don’t wear heels, but when I do I always go for a chunky heel – so much easier to walk in!
I purchased a few other items from the 2017 Autumn collection at Zara that I’m currently wearing on repeat, so I went ahead and linked them below. Loving all of the ruffle sleeves and chunky oversized sweaters! Be sure to check out the $30 Zara denim I linked. They look so much nicer in person and are SO comfortable. I have seriously been living in them! I thought they would fall apart after a few washes, but they’ve been through the wash about 4 times now and still look new. Hope everyone has a lovely week!

Saturday was such a fun day! My mom and sisters were in town for a visit and the first thing we did was grab coffee at a new shop that just opened in downtown Coppell. It’s called George: Coffee + Provisions, and it’s so dreamy!! If you live in the DFW area, I highly recommend you visit. The atmosphere is amazing and their coffee is so delicious.
While Max was taking a nap in the afternoon, I snuck away with my sister to photograph one of my favorite purchases from the Nordstrom Sale. I know everyone is so tired of seeing the N Sale all over their feed, but they really do have some great deals right now! This sweater is so comfy and only $30! I love that there is a fitted sleeve under the bell sleeve. It’s definitely a little warm for this 100 degree weather Texas is having right now, but I know it will be on repeat all winter long. It’s almost sold out in grey, but it still has a few sizes left in blue, and of course, it will likely be restocked after the sale. I’m wearing a Medium.
I’m so bummed because I wanted to link my bag as well, but it’s already sold out. I’m pretty sure it will be restocked after the sale, but it will likely be full price. If it comes back, I will be sure to let y’all know. It has the cutest little gold firefly! I think it’s around $45 at full price, and it also comes in black.
These jeans!! Let me tell you about these jeans. They are high waisted, super fitted, and so comfy! They are my first pair of Topshop jeans and I love them so much. I went up a size because Topshop denim typically runs small. They will stretch while you wear them, but I still recommend going up a size. I was rushing to get dressed for pictures and totally didn’t realize that I had forgotten to cuff one of my legs! After pictures my sister said, “Oh, I thought that was the new style or something.” Haha! Definitely not.
My shoes are from Target and I like that they have block heels, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to walk in them. I need a wedge or a block heel to balance because I’m absolutely terrible at walking in heels. They are super cheap and go with everything. I hope everyone has a great week, and I will talk to y’all again soon! 🙂

Today I’m sharing 5 of my favorite beauty products for summer.
1. Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant
I never thought I’d be this excited to write a review about deodorant but y’all, this stuff is WONDERFUL. I will never go back to regular deodorant. It smells amazing and it lasts all day no matter how active you are! I can go to work, hit the grocery store, pick up Max from school, make dinner, pass out by accident without changing to pajamas (it’s been known to happen once or twice), wake up the next morning wondering why I’m still in jeans and I still smell great!! The price is a little scary, but I promise it’s 100 percent worth it. You can find it at Ulta or Nordstrom.
2. Wet N Wild Bronzer
I had to follow my expensive antiperspirant with an amazing deal. This bronzer is the holy grail of bronzers, and it’s only 3 dollars! It gives the perfect, light, matte glow and it stays on all day. It’s similar to Hoola by Benefit but way less expensive. I’ve tried bronzers at every price point (In college I thought orange was a good look), but this cheap little bronzer is a slice of heaven. The only con is that the powder in the compact does break easily, so you can’t carry it around in your makeup bag. It will last you months If you keep it safe at home on your bathroom counter.
3. NARS Illuminator in Copacabana
I had my makeup done at the NARS counter a few months ago and was introduced to this. I’ve never been the biggest highlight fan. I’ve tried quite a few, including Becca, but I just end up looking like a disco ball. This highlight adds a beautiful glow to my extremely pale skin and it’s long lasting in the Texas heat. To apply, I swipe a tiny amount over my cheekbones and cupid’s bow.
4. IT Cosmetics Full Coverage CC+Cream With SPF 50
I used to think CC Cream = barely any coverage = only for people with perfect skin. I was totally wrong. I have uneven skin tone with redness like you wouldn’t believe, along with dark circles that I got the day I became a mother. I was using thick foundation thinking it would solve my skin issues, but it just made everything worse. This CC cream was recommended by one of my favorite bloggers and I decided I had to give it a try. I’m extremely happy I did because It goes on so light and evens out my skin tone perfectly! Bye bye redness and see ya later dark circles! I put this on every morning and it’s crazy how using just this alone completely brightens and evens my complexion. I use this in the lightest shade with my favorite NARS concealer in Chantilly and they go together perfectly. I feel like my skin can breathe now!
5. Dior Creme De Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm
Okay y’all please don’t make fun of me for owning a $30 dollar lip balm, let me explain first! My best friend (Hey Anne 😘) let me borrow this when we were on a trip together. I put it on over my lipstick and fell madly in love. I’m constantly wearing lipstick because I have a small obsession with matte pink lips, so I feel like my lips are constantly dried out no matter how moisturizing the lipstick I use is. This balm keeps my lips moisturized for hours and I love how it feels! I now carry it with me everywhere. If you need more persuading, just look at the reviews 😊
I hope you enjoyed this post! Stay tuned next week because I have an awesome giveaway happening. Enjoy your weekend! xoxo
My beautiful friend Caroline is a fashion blogger in Houston and she is the sweetest soul you will ever meet! We paired up to show y’all four pairs of shoes we are living in this summer. Max loves her and wanted to be in all of our pictures, so technically I’m sharing five pairs of shoes because I linked his too. I’ve known Caroline since middle school and some of my favorite memories with her include staying up all night watching Aquamarine and eating starburst jellybeans. I’m linking her Instagram and blog at the end of this post, so please go show her some love!
1. I love how we both chose shoes with studs. I’m seriously obsessed with Caroline’s rock stud heels! They’re even prettier in person and remind me of Valentino’s. Visit her blog linked here and below for the details on where to get them!
2. My Steve Madden Sandals have pearl studs, and I get compliments on them wherever I go! They are also insanely comfortable and I wore them every single day last week 🙈 I might need a backup pair.
3. Caroline’s Pom Pom sandals are so fun! A few of our close friends were with us when we took pictures, and when she pulled them out of her bag everyone swooned. Also, how cute is her off the shoulder top and denim!? You can find out her full outfit details by visiting her blog linked here and below.
4. My taupe wedges are similar to the Marc Fisher shoes that every blogger has right now, but they are less than half the price! They are retro inspired and SO comfortable. I was able to pair these and the sandals with this really cute peplum pocket tank I found at Anthropologie. I don’t usually like tanks but this one is comfortable and flattering!
5. Lastly, Max’s shoes! Your little doesn’t need multiple pairs of sandals for summer, only these! They are awesome because he can get them wet and they dry so quickly. They are also super easy to clean and comfortable on his feet. Perfect for school or the splash pad. I honestly thought these would be torn up by now with how active he is but they are so durable and will last all summer long!
