Skirt (sold out, similar here)  |  Purse  (coveting the green shade!)  |  Green Top  (sold out, similar here)  |  Canvas Utility Jacket  |  Watch  |  Shoes  |  Classic Pearl Studs

I’ve never been one for muted colors (I’m more into brights… does that come as a surprise?), and have avoided the army greens and taupes of late simply because I haven’t known how to make them look “cute.” Laid back and relaxed? Sure, but girly and fun? I was having trouble reconciling the two.

That was until I came across this skirt, and realized that those muted colors was exactly what was needed to compliment the prairie-inspired number. Enter an army green shirt and classic utility jacket. All together, they make a seamless, laid back look that is feminine to the tee. I’m surprised by how much I love it!

Another variation on the muted color look I can’t wait to try this fall? This vest paired with these stunning crimson corduroys, a simple hunter top and tasseled loafers. Looks like I have a new favorite look for the fall!

In other news… it’s a huge day! Remember the “Shake It Off” cover the boy made a few weeks ago? Well, it was selected by RYAN SEACREST for a competition on his website!!! I am so SO thrilled for Jeff and couldn’t be more proud. In my completely objective third-party outsider opinion, with absolutely no personal interest in the matter (name the movie), I think his cover is the BEST and deserves to win! If you agree (or just want to make my day), vote here for Jeff McIntosh! Since you can vote once a day, I’ll be that girl refreshing her browser every few minutes… naturally… :)

Here’s the video again, just because it’s happy and fun and the boy is cute.

Love from Texas,


Join in on the fun!

  4. You pull the muted colours off so well! The pop of blue with the skirt and your lip colour? Yes!
    Also, congrats for Jeff!
