pink fringe scarf

I’ll be quite honest, I didn’t think it was possible to be quite so in love with a scarf. Now that the holidays are behind us, there’s something about throwing on a blanket scarf that just seems too, hmm… heavy to me. Maybe that has to do with the on and off 70 degree weather we’re having in Dallas, but nevertheless, it’s made accessorizing for chilly days a bit more tricky!

I’ll be quite honest, I didn’t think it was possible to be quite so in love with a scarf. Now that the holidays are behind us, there’s something about throwing on a blanket scarf that just seems too, hmm… heavy to me. Maybe that has to do with the on and off 70 degree weather we’re having in Dallas, but nevertheless, it’s made accessorizing for chilly days a bit more tricky!

When I came across this pink fringe scarf, I knew I’d found just the piece to spice things up for spring. With it’s feminine rosy hue and fun tassel detailing, it doesn’t just “add to” an outfit… it becomes the outfit! I loved the statement piece it became when paired with a simple white top and skinny jeans.

While this beauty is on the pricier end of scarf-dome, it’s quality (i.e. coziness) and style managed to make me forget about that. (Am I the only one that has a knack of “forgetting” price tags when I find an item I love?) It also is 50% off in the color grey, as if I needed more temptation!

I hope everyone had the best weekend! I made the drive down to Austin last night, and am so excited to be photographing here today for a fun project I have coming up. Hint – it involves the outdoors! Know what I’m even more excited about? My baby sister turns 21 tomorrow, so I’ll get to stop in and spend the night with her on my drive back! While Mondays are usually far from my favorite, I’m actually not hating this one so far. :)

Love from Texas,

Kate

latest & greatest vol. 19

Happiest Friday, y’all! I have to say, putting together a new latest & greatest post is always such a fun way to wrap up the week. Especially this week, as there are so many cute new arrivals on the web! I’m especially drooling over these pink ballet flats. They’re so pricey, but so beautiful.…

Happiest Friday, y’all! I have to say, putting together a new latest & greatest post is always such a fun way to wrap up the week. Especially this week, as there are so many cute new arrivals on the web! I’m especially drooling over these pink ballet flats. They’re so pricey, but so beautiful. And how cute is this “brunch hat” baseball cap? I’ve already ordered it!

I think the number of spring items that have made their way into Latest & Greatest over the past few weeks is saying something… as in, time to take a tropical vacation?! I’d love to hear of any resorts or destinations you love for beach bumming, especially in Mexico! The trip plannin’ side of me is ready to get some exercise.

I’m wishing all of you a happy, safe weekend! I’m so excited for a lazy Saturday… I’m planning on trying a new yoga class, spray painting a huge mirror I own, and hopefully ending the day with sushi at my favorite Dallas spot, Oishii! (If you go, order the Caesar roll. Life changing, I tell you. Life changing.)

Love from Texas,

Kate

Curling Wand

This wand came highly recommended from one of my favorite blogs, Southern Curls & Pearls. I can't wait to give it a try!

Pink Ruffles

I'm always looking to add color into my wardrobe, and love that this pink top also makes the sweetest statement with the oversized ruffle!

$35 ruffle sleeve tee

Some girls swear by the little black dress… I swear by the little white tee! This piece is my ultimate “basic.” It’s one item I’m continually reaching for in my closet, whether to pair underneath a jacket, layer under a cardigan or wear alone! The trick is finding one that has a flawless cut… something casual yet flattering and, if possible, that has a little extra something!

Some girls swear by the little black dress… I swear by the little white tee!

The trick is finding one that has a flawless cut… something casual yet flattering and, if possible, that has a little extra something!

Enter this $35 ruffle sleeve top from Nordstrom. Oh, friends… it is so good. We’ve seen the ruffle and bell sleeve trend start to crop up in this year’s styles, and the way it’s executed in this casual tee is nothing short of flawless! And given the price point, it’s a piece I can’t recommend highly enough. I’ve owned mine for a week now, and have already gotten multiple uses out of it. As we inch into spring and summer, furthermore, I’d be surprised if it doesn’t become one of the most reached-for items in my closet!

Not only is it available in a classic white, you’ll find it in pink, grey and black as well. I don’t do this with many clothing items, but this is truly a blouse I want in every color!

Fun fact, I wore this on my flight to go visit the cowboy in Wyoming, seen here! I actually landed back in Dallas last night and y’all… the trip was so wonderful. We had so much fun exploring the little town of Cheyenne and eating our way through Denver! Long distance is never anyone’s preferred relationship layout, but I can’t explain how fun and fulfilling it was to see bits and pieces of his life out there! It makes me so proud. You can catch my favorite photo from the trip here!

Love from Texas,

Kate

the perfect valentines day outfit

Once the holiday season comes to a close, I find myself looking for any excuse to celebrate in an attempt to bring some cheer to the bleak months before spring! Valentines Day has always been one that I’ve loved going all out for, regardless of whether or not I’m in a relationship,! Making cinnamon rolls, coffee and fresh strawberries the morning of and ending the evening with a fun dinner out always makes the day enjoyable. This year, I know it will be even more-so in this firecracker of a frock!

DRESS   pink off the shoulder dress (currently in stock in every size!)   |   SHOES   coach strappy heels (sold out in tan, available in other colors)   |   CLUTCH   oversized nude clutch (old Francesca’s, similar linked)   |   LIP COLOR   pink nouveau   |   EARRINGS   pink lisi lerch tassel earrings c/o   |   BRACELET   screw in bracelet

This is one of those dresses that simply needs no introduction. The gorgeous pink color, the flirty bell-sleeve cut… What. Is. Not. To. Love.

Valentines Day has always been one that I’ve loved going all out for, regardless of whether or not I’m in a relationship,!

This year, I know it will be even more-so in this firecracker of a frock!

Whether you’ve got a hot date, or are spending the evening with your best girlfriends, I can’t recommend this dress enough. At $110, it’s a great combination of style and price! Plus, not only will it take you through February 14th, but to all the formals, weddings, spring breaks and summer vacations that lie just ahead. I know I’ll be wearing this for months to come!

A little note on the fit of this dress… you’ll see in the product image that it seems very fitted on the model. While it’s definitely fitted, I didn’t find mine to be quite that tight! That, I believe, has to do with the waistline. It hits right underneath the bust instead of at the true waist. Honestly, it makes the dress so much easier to wear… it’s a lot more forgiving than your typical cocktail cut! :)

navy plaid wrap

This wrap from Tuckernuck has had me swooning ever since it arrived in the mail. I love the design… there are two small slits for your arms that allow this wrap to lay in the most elegant way. Add a classic navy and white check, and you’ve got the perfect piece for these chilly months ahead!

    

WRAP   navy and white wrap (on sale!) c/o   |   BOOTS   lucchese cowboy boots c/o   |   SHIRT   white mock neck shirt   |   BELT   j.crew leather belt   |   SUNNIES   classic rayban aviators   |   EARRINGS   pearl stud earrings   |   BAG   barrington st. anne tote c/o   |   BRACELET   gold screw bracelet

Good morning, friends! I’m so sorry for the delay in getting today’s post up. As you may have seen on Instagram, I hopped on a plane last night to visit the cowboy in Wyoming! Unfortunately, that “hopping” took wayyy longer than expected. A few delays on the tarmac and a completely re-routed flight later, I finally made it! And promptly crashed before getting this post together.

In my opinion, though, today’s post makes up for it! This plaid wrap from Tuckernuck has had me swooning ever since it arrived in the mail. I love the design… there are two small slits for your arms that allow this wrap to lay in the most elegant way. Add a classic navy and white check, and you’ve got the perfect piece for these chilly months ahead!

 Instead of pairing it with booties or riding boots (both of which would look darling) I decided to put a little Texas spin on the look with these beautiful Lucchese cowboy boots! The quality and beauty in each boot crafted by Lucchese is nothing short of amazing. These are shoes I will have for years and years to come.

Wishing everyone a lovely start to the week! We stopped in Denver last night before making the drive to Cheyenne today. I got to stay with one of my best friends since high school, Camille, which is enough to fill my happy tank for a while! While we were catching up this morning, I looked out the window to see SNOW! It’s stunning! Can’t wait to show y’all more on Instagram. Be sure to follow here!

Alright friends, it’s safe to say that after this past week of crazayyy weather (for everyone, it seems) I’m officially in spring mode with this new Latest & Greatest post!

It would seem that all of our favorite stores are with me…. there are so many adorable spring pieces out. It definitely has me wishing for sustainable 70 degree days! (We had one this past week and it was stunning.)

I’m loving the stunning color and fun shapes (hello ruffles, scallops and tassels galore) in today’s roundup! There’s one item in particular I’m excited to tell you about… this T3 curling wand! While it’s not technically a “new arrival” to the web, it is to me! I ordered it last week after hearing so much buzz, and finally got it in the mail on Wednesday! I kid you not… in the day and a half I’ve had and used it, I’ve received so many compliments. I was honestly skeptical before receiving it as it is definitely a big purchase, but lemmetellyawhat. This girl is sold. Can’t wait to bring y’all some blog posts where I’ve used it so you can see for yourself!

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend! I’m celebrating my baby sister’s birthday on Saturday, and then off to Cheyenne to visit the cowboy! Yeehaw!
