I love a good pop of color, which is why I decided to rock the mustard tights today with the subdued tones of this lovely striped dress. I also did my fav stripes and leopard. The dress has some great 3/4 sleeves with smaller stripes, someday when its not freezing out, I'll show them to you. It was a busy day at the office, so simple and comfy is all I wanted, this seemed to fit the bill perfectly!

I felt very Joan from MadMen in this dress, it was tight but not too tight, and made my curves look great. I know you can't really tell from this particular styling, but its a great little dress and its warm, so I'm sure it will be back again soon.

Nothing like a little wool

It continues to be cold here in the Lone Star State, which is just fine with me! Cold means I can finally wear all the awesome winter things I got on insane super sale this summer. I know it was a little crazy to buy a wool skirt in July, but I did it and 5 months later it was perfect and super cute!

You see that infinity scarf? My Mama made it for me last Christmas. I found it today when I pulled out the wool coat and my goodness was I happy to see it! Not only is it super warm and an awesome color, its like getting a hug from my mom all day long and nothing is better than that.

My joyful face when I got to put my coat on!

This weekend, I went and chopped about six inches off my hair and had it died this awesome red brown shade of wonderful. I also got my bangs back, which makes me so darn happy. It took me 45 minutes this morning to figure out how to do my hair, but I think I settled on something pretty great. I got rave reviews at work, complete with my boss telling me it made me look grown up. Woo finally a grown up at 26!

It was COLD today in Austin, like legitimately cold, so that means sweater, tights, and boots, it was cute and kept me toasty warm all day. Plus I couldn't get too crazy, the focus needed to be on the 'do!

For reference, Petunia isn't the only cute furry animal around here.
Clark is quite the handsome boy!

A Rainy day in Austin town

What is this falling from the sky? Its rain!
We haven't gotten hardly any rain around these parts this year, so today was strange and awesome. I never look out my windows in the morning before getting dressed, but today I did and goodness was I glad! Today called for faux patent leather flats, not nice velvet ones. Add a comfy tee, a cardi, and a good scarf and you've got an outfit made in rainy Friday heaven.

I'm signing in the rain, just singing and taking style blog photos in the rain!

Good things come to those who wait


It took me a long time to get dressed this morning. I finally settled on this outfit and I'm pretty glad I did. I knew I wanted to work around my new shoes and that I didn't want to wear a pencil skirt, which lead to my rocking the maxi, which in turn made me feel like I was in jammies all day, and that's awesome!

 So remember all that Massoni nonsense back in August? Well I went to Target on the first day, at noon, and EVERYTHING was gone, except some knee socks. All I had really wanted were the flats, so I went home sad. Well about 3 weeks ago I was looking at the sale shoes in Target and what did I find? The awesome sauce flats I'd wanted, in my size, and on sale!! There were little Target angles looking down on me that day, woowoo!!
