latest & greatest no. 1

Yesterday, as I was doing some habitual online shopping, I caught myself having this thought… “I just wish someone would go through the new arrivals of all my favorite stores and put together a must have list. Sparknotes edition, if you will.” Nothing gets me quite as excited as coming across new pieces that A. the world hasn’t already purchased and B. are still in stock! But scrolling through tons and tons of new arrivals can get old and quite time consuming.

And then it hit me… I can’t be the only one, right? So I thought I’d test run a new little series today…  Basically, a roundup of the latest and greatest new arrivals from the week! That way, you’re seeing the cutest new pieces first without having to do the dirty work yourself.

We’ll call it “Latest and Greatest.” After scouring through all of my favorite stores, I’ve selected the very best “new arrivals” and given my input on them below! Click directly on the image to shop, and don’t forget to head down below this collage for the deets on the “big announcement” I hinted at last night on Snapchat!


Y’all, I am giddy to be teaming up with one of my favorite brands, Barrington, to debut this darling, limited-run pink and orange ikat pattern! My favorite colors in a youthful yet timeless pattern? Sign. Me. Up. I’lll be bringing these pieces to the blog in the next few days, but wanted to give you Snapchat followers a heads up! Shop my favorite pieces in the collection below.

Do be a doll and let me know what you think of this “Latest and Greatest” series, would you? If it’s something y’all love, I’ll be happy to bring it back! Wishing each of you a wonderful weekend!

Love from Texas,


Join in on the fun!
