When in Texas

bow blouse (similar) // Target leopard cardigan (sold out) // Avery Lane striped skater skirt
Tory Burch Reva flats // Essie polish in "boom boom room" // YSL lipstick in "le fuschia"

This past weekend, I took a trip to Dallas, TX, to meet up with a bunch of blogger friends I hadn't seen in a while. It was a whirlwind trip, filled with good food, shopping and lots of girl time. I received this striped skirt from Avery Lane Boutique the day I left and stuffed it in my suitcase at the last minute! I was so happy I did because I LOVE the cut and shape of this skirt and the fact that it can be worn every season of the year. How cute will it be with wedges (and a tan) during the summer? Avery Lane has lots of cute things so be sure to check them out!

I also wanted to introduce you to two of the sweetest girls I've ever met! I had met Krista, who blogs at Covering the Bases, during a trip to NYC in October and fell in love with her fun loving and infectious personality. This weekend I had the chance to meet Kate, from Lonestar State of Southern, whom I've had a blog crush on FOREVER. She really is the cutest thing I've ever seen, y'all. Both of these girls have such bubbly personalities and I'm so thankful for genuine, encouraging friends like them!

Kate, Krista & me!

  34. You look so darling! What a blast :) I have that exact cardigan, but I haven't worn it yet. I feel like I can't wear it to work (I get nervous about the more "wild" items in my closet). Any tips on my dilemma?
