So y’all. I purchased these leopard pumps exactly one week ago, and they’ve kinda changed my life. I’d never bought into the pointy-toe-heel thing because I think for some reason I found them a little mature for me? Wow, Kate. WRONG. On the contrary, I’ve found they add an instant, equally fun and elegant touch to just about any outfit. Not to mention this exact pair is so comfortable.

Another style I’ve been missing out on? Chino pants! I found this pair at H&M, but have noticed them everywhere this season. I love that they switch things up from the continual jean cycle. Plus, they come in colors! Yippee! I’ve got my eye on this terracotta pair next… What a week of discovery. Join me in a moment of silence to take it all in. ;)

Anyone have fun plans this weekend? Because… ya know… it’s FRIDAY! Finally! This week lagged on and on for me, and I’m so happy to have lots of plans of doing absolutely nothing for the next couple of days. Oh, scratch that, lots of plans of tearing through the last few books in The Selection series. Warning – it’s completely addictive! Any other book recommendations? I’m always on the hunt!

Love from Texas,

  2. The Selection is one of my favorite series! I would suggest To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. Such a cute novel!!

  3. This is the perfect look for an office that allows business casual attire. I think I might have to use this outfit as an inspiration for work!
