latest & greatest vol. 66

Now that we’re in September, I’m so excited to slowly but surely make the transition to fall. Even though it will be hot here in Texas for a few more weeks (ok, maybe months) yet, I’m excited to bring autumn inspiration your way!

It’s finally Friday, and I have a messy apartment and 4 coffee mugs sitting on my desk to prove it! :) Thank goodness, am I right?

What better way to kick that off than with a new latest and greatest. This roundup of the cutest new arrivals to hit the web is especially fun, with lots of deep hues and silhouettes befitting the upcoming season. It’s hard to pick a favorite!

I’m off to another wedding in Houston this weekend, and am looking forward to reuniting with friends. Can’t wait to show y’all what I’m wearing! (The dress arrives today… lets hope it works!)

Love from Texas,

Kate

my new favorite pair of jeans

Now, I’ve always loved the look of flare jeans, but because I’m so short (all of 5’2″ over here) I usually have an impossible time finding them. The knee always seems to hit me halfway down through my calf so there ends up being no flare at all. That’s why when I came across this pair before my recent trip tip California, I could have fainted from excitement.

Mamma Mia… here we go again!

Did anyone else see (and love) the new Mamma Mia movie?! I saw it twice. In the span of a week.

I explained in my IG stories a few weeks back that my sister and I actually grew up listening to the “Best of ABBA” album. Long story short, my parents were super protective over what we listened to/watched growing up, and radio disney didn’t make the nice list. (You can’t make this stuff up.) So one fated evening in the middle of a family road trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, my father stopped into a truck stop and came out with that. CD.

It’s been our golden standard ever since! We know every. song. So needless to say, the Mamma Mia movies have been our thing.

They are large. And IN CHARGE, y’all. There’s no denying it. But there’s something about that oversized-drama that also makes them incredibly flattering.

My mom calls me crazy for loving them, but hey… when you’re born in the wrong decade and miss your calling to be in one of the 70s biggest pop groups, what else can you do?

And heads up… they’re under $100 and come in quite a few different colors.

You’re welcome.

P.S. Did anyone else do some labor day sale shopping yesterday? I did! And I’m getting ready to rev up my engines again for the Lilly Pulitzer After Party sale that starts online next Monday! Check out all of the info here.

Not only are there tons of amazing new arrivals this week, but there are tons of amazing sales going on this weekend! Like, for example, this darling pink coat for 40% off with the code BIGSALE. I am not at all in winter-weather buying mode right now, but pieces like this always sell out by the time I need to wear them. So my advice? Pull the trigger (and grab those savings) now!

Not only is the weekend here… the long weekend is here and I, for one, am giddy about it!

This afternoon, Andrew and I are driving to my family’s farm in Arkansas to spend time with my mom’s side! It will be his first time seeing this special part of my upbringing, and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Lots of laid-back, friend-food and card game fun in our future for these next 48 hours. :)

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Love from Texas,

Kate
