Before I talk about more of my beauty regimens, let’s talk fashion! I’m a busy mom and elementary school teacher with a million things to do. There are mornings when I encourage my three year old to grab his own snacks (pre-washed fruit) from the refrigerator because I can’t peel myself off of the sofa. Lol This color blocked OOTD if for these moments.
We will always have those events that creep up on us or have days when we don’t have the energy to put a lot of thought into an outfit. When those days arise it is great to have a “matching set” to throw on and run out of the door. This black and white color blocked set sponsored by DressLily.com is perfect for those moments. The diagonal color blocking design adds some interest to an otherwise basic look. The pockets on the pants have a white insert to help them pop a bit more too. I always like to have a bold element in all of my looks so I went for a fuzzy red purse this time. Don’t be surprised if people start petting your purse! Lol
Hair– I know, you must be thinking I don’t need much when it come to the hair department and your’e right. I don’t need a lot of product but I don’t need the right stuff! I’m finding so much success Carol’s Daughter Almond Milk line. It leaves my hair soft and shiny and my scalp moisturized. That’s all I need in my life right now. Lol
Skincare– I went to a bloggers brunch to learn more about Japanese skincare line Decorte. The science behind these product is freaking amazing (It uses Onsen LIVING WATER) and it smells divine. I honestly dragged my feet on starting this regimen because I knew I would fall in love with it quickly, yet the thought of replacing it once I ran out was troubling. Lol
I took the leap, and I freaking love it! I leaves my skin so soft, plump and smooth. That’s not east for my acne prone skin so I was super surprised at the results. I guess I’m hooked 🙂 You can find Decorte exclusively at Saks!

In my mind, November 1st officially kicks off the holiday season. Besides, I’m already hearing Christmas music so I might as well offer some fashion advice for the many holiday parties that are to come. This is the perfect time to break out something bright, exciting, and unexpected. It’s fun to stand out,be festive, and have your outfit be a conversation piece at holiday gatherings.
Besides your traditional red, green, and white try SEQUINS! This sequins jumper sponsored by Dresslily.com has beautiful geometric shapes and patterns to really make a statement. I love the idea of a one piece outfit. It just simplifies getting ready and offers you an alternative to a regular top and bottom.
When it comes to accessories, I added a statement necklace that fit the neckline of the jumper beautifully. I went more conservative with my earrings, shoes, and jacket. Who knows, if it never warms up this season you could even go with out a cover up. Add in a rosy red lip and you are all set! Leave me a comment about your fun fashion ideas for holiday parties. Enjoy!
This two piece cut out sponsored by DressLily.com is my version of Fall Floral. Ha ha! I know its laughable but Fall in Texas is still 80+ degrees. This floral design does have richer tones with a hint of deep orange. These colors definitely make this look more “Fall appropriate”. Of course, to make it feel more like Fall I layered a fuzzy collared denim jacket on top and my Coach Preston booties on bottom. Now, if it would only cool down just a bit more. Enjoy!
The casual gray jumpsuit in this OOTD was sponsored by DressLily.com so that I can bring you a honest review on some of their pieces.
Sometimes you just need that one thing that doesn’t wrinkle easily and is beyond comfortable to throw on quickly. (Like everyday, ha ha!) This jumper is a no brainer for those days. It can be worn alone or layered with a jacket or sweater like I’ve styled here. Sneakers and sandals look great with it and you’ll be out of the door in minutes. Need I say more?!?!
The quality of this jumper is surprisingly good. I ordered a medium because I don’t like things to fit too tightly and this was perfect. I would say it runs a bit small so order at least one size bigger than what you would normally wear. As far as texture, it is very soft and sort of thick. It will be perfect if it ever cools down in Houston but it is a little too warm to wear comfortably right now.

The cut out top in this OOTD was sponsored by DressLily.com so that I can bring you a honest review on some of their pieces. I know you must think I’m crazy to be in all white after labor day but I’m a rule breaker. Besides, the celebs are still wearing white at the Emmy’s so I will too. Lol
I ordered a medium in this top because I have freakishly long arms and I didn’t want the sleeves to be short but I could have ordered a small. This top fits true to size. It’s comfortable, not scratchy and has some stretchy qualities to it. When I thought about styling this top the phrase “keep it simple” immediately popped into my head and I knew I was going to go for all white. Luckily I have a pair of white culottes that I purchased from F21 over the summer. To spice up the white, I grabbed the blue wristlet clutch that my mom bought me for christmas years ago. A simple shoe and cool sunnies completed the look.
Leave me a comment about the cool ways you plan to wear white after labor day, enjoy!
