latest & greatest vol. 46

First week moved into my new apartment, and let me tell y’all… it’s been amazing! I’ve been able to be so much more productive and the ability to separate work and “normal life” has been the best thing for my mood/sanity/well-being. ;) I’m finalizing the decor for a couple of spaces and then can’t wait to show y’all the whole thing!

Not only was it a great week for productivity, it was a fabulous week for new arrivals as well! I asked on my Insta Story (follow me @LonestarSouthern) whether y’all would want to see spring or winter inspiration, and the majority voted for spring. I promise I’ll keep posting winter-ready looks on the blog, but every so often it’s fun to dream about what’s ahead, right?

Everything on this collage is calling my name (what’s new) but I wanted to point out three things I just purchased myself and absolutely love!

First up? This darling monogrammed stationary. I had the best experience ordering it from this Etsy shop, and am so excited to get them in the mail soon! I’ll share pics with y’all when they arrive.

A tried and true favorite of mine? This pink O Ring. They are such a thing here in Dallas, and after hearing so many friends rave about theirs, I finally bit the bullet and bought my own. They’re a bit pricey, so I put it off! I can safely say, though, that they are worth it. I bought my mama one for Christmas and she still talks about how much she loves it!

Finally… drumroll, please! After thinking about it for three years (not kidding) I finally pulled the trigger on these Jimmy Choo wedges! EEK! They are way too expensive, but I’ve been wanting a pair of flattering, wear-with-anything wedges and since these are so timeless, well-made and comfortable, I finally rounded up some Christmas money and made them mine. You’ll be seeing them a lot this spring and summer, and I’ll keep my eyes out for dupes!

After finishing up some work, I’m headed off for a ranch weekend! Whatever you’re up to, I hope you have the best time and that I get to see you back here on Monday morning!

Love from Texas,


P.S. Don’t forget about the giveaway for a $200 gift card to Lauren James I’m hosting on my Instagram! You’ll find all the instructions and details here.

    I love all the pink this week! With Valentines Day and spring around the corner the shade is definitely calling my name. Congratulations on the new shoes! It’s always so fun to pull the trigger after wanting something for a while. xAllie
