From time to time, I score bigtime at Forever21. You know what I’m talking about. That feeling when wading/crawling/combing through the craziness results in finding that killer piece for an even better price point?  The best!

Nowadays, ever since Forever21 moved out of my neighborhood mall, I’ve kept my shopping there confined to the online space. I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s really the best way to do this store, y’all. Everything is much more organized, well laid-out, and you can see how the items look on a person without guessing from the hanger. Oh, and did I mention you can do it all from the comfort of your pajamas? That’s what we call a win, win.

On my latest virtual visit, I came across this $35 denim ruffle sleeve dress. Needless to say, I feel like I hit the jackpot! Denim is such a trend this season, but I’ve had difficulty finding it in pieces that still make me feel feminine. From the frayed hem to the gorgeous ruffled sleeves, this dress does just that. I can’t wait to wear it out this spring and summer!

I also wanted to introduce a new friend of mine… the Kelly Wynne Mingle Mingle Mini. For all my football fans, it’s the perfect solution for restrictive stadium regulations. That’s actually why I got it! But now that that season is coming to a close, I’ve found myself wearing this to far more than just games. I love that it blends into any outfit while creating a statement all at once. How cute, right?!

I’m typing this out after a long day spent in jury duty service. I (thankfully) wasn’t chosen, and am catching up on work with the fire going, a candle lit, and Gray’s Anatomy on Netflix. I asked on Instagram if y’all would want a post on what I learned from my Jury Duty experience and the vast majority of y’all have responded yes! I know it’s kind of different from my norm, but am more than happy to put it together if it would interest you, just let me know!

Love from Texas,
