pink ruffle top

Pinks, frills, waisted silhouettes… combine these three stereotypically (and wonderfully) feminine fashion elements into one darling blouse, and you’ve got an immediate customer in this girl!

As we enter this murky not-quite-summer-but-not-quite-fall time of year, which I’ll be talking a lot about these next couple of weeks, I’m constantly on the lookout for pieces that can play both. This top covers both seasons beautifully!

For a hot, late summer day, I found that it paired beautifully with white jeans and pastel, tasseled accessories. (How cute is this tote?!) Moving into fall, the options are endless! Add a soft, tan sweater to this look for cooler evenings, switch out the white jeans for dark denim flares for a night out, or add a navy blazer and leopard flats for a work-appropriate ensemble. Shopping for this strange in-between season can be tricky, but finding pieces like these makes the hunt worth it!

Today feels like my “Monday” after coming off of a fabulous weekend with my friend Katie! This was her first time visiting Texas from Alabama, so we squeezed in as much as possible to give her a real Dallas experience. Hours of shopping, visits to Dallas’ coolest neighborhoods, and two (!!!) Tex-Mex dinners later, I’m the happiest sort of exhausted and feeling ready to take on the new, short week! Hope yours has been off to a great start, y’all!

Love from Texas,
