SHOP THE LOOK!
I only own one other pair of over-the-knee boots, which are black, but have been in search of another pair that are not only comfortable but flattering. Then last weekend I swung into Schutz up on Madison Ave because I had a gift card, and saw these beauties. Needless to say I am pretty obsessed with them and can’t wait to style them with a pair of dark skinny jeans and an oversized sweater.

So remember how yesterday I made The Weekly Edit all about culottes? Well, guess what? This post is also all about culottes, YAY!
My dear friend Krystal shot this look for me before I even created my YouTube video where I styled these pants five different ways, so I thought I would share yet another way I created an outfit around these beloved trousers! Thoughts? xo

It’s no lie that the culotte pant is a bit of an intimidating trend to try out, but with the right proportions and styling, these cropped trousers can be really fun to wear. I found a high waisted pair I really liked from Zara, so I brought them home and gave them a try.
I do want to point out, that although technically culottes have been described as a shorter cropped pant that were made to look like a skirt, the updated versions out in the stores now tend to run anywhere from super cropped to the just below the knee or down to just above the ankle. Hope the helps clarify any confusion!
Anyhow, I’ve created five different, (work appropriate, no less!) ways to rock this wide-leg pant trend, so take a look and let me know which outfit is your favorite! xo

This type of look has pretty much been my fall uniform on repeat. It’s just so easy to recreate simply by just playing around with and switching out various styles of jeans paired with different colored blazers, button downs, hats and heels. The combinations are endless!

I love scarves. I have more than I care to admit but I can’t stop buying more every fall and winter. I find that my most favorite scarves are either from Zara and ASOS (see yesterday’s post) and I love how affordable they are.
Sometimes styling a really long or large scarf can feel intimidating because you start to wonder where all the fabric is supposed to go! But my favorite way to handle an oversized scarf is to make sure it doesn’t too look fussy or “done” and that it is comfortable around your neck. I tend to wear mine fairly loosely, circled once around with the ends hanging down in front.
It’s not quite chilly enough just yet to break out my new ones so I thought instead I would share some of my older, favorite outfits from this past year where the scarf was the main focal piece.

Maybe I should do a scarf styling/tying tutorial on my YouTube channel! Would you guys be into that? Let me know in the comments below! xo
This is a bit of a throwback post at this point, but these photos were taken by the talented Alex Ignacio when I was in Santa Fe with my parents, in early September. I had stumbled across this cute place called Modern General, (which is also opening up a new shop in Austin shortly!) and they got in contact with me about doing a fun mini photo and video shoot showcasing the shop. Alex Ignacio is the photographer who works at Narrative Media, and who was kind enough to shoot these photos (as well as the video, which is to come soon). It was just fun to work together on such a short and spontaneous basis especially with such an amazing shop and space as our backdrop.
For those of you that followed me along on my Snapchat, you definitely know about these cowboy boots. My parents and I went to Kowboyz to find a good pair and I ended up walking away with these bad boys. I really can’t wait for it to be a fall and style these with some dark jeans, a white button down and a leather jacket. Yes, yes and yes.

Thank you so much Alex – you are so talented and I can’t wait to share the video you created! :)
I hope you all have a great week and make sure to check back on Wednesday for the newest Weekly Edit post here on the blog, and my newest video on my YouTube channel! xo

I wore this simple but classic look this past Sunday to attend the Tracy Reese show on behalf of Mary Kay. I was lucky enough to go backstage to see and learn all about the makeup looks used on the runway (read about here) as well as hang out with the lovely Mara, Sydne and Sheryl before and during the show. Below are some great photos that Sheryl’s husband took of us right before went into the Tracy Reese show. Thanks Reuben!
Now about the outfit…I used to really dislike black and brown together, but now I really like it! I think it comes down to the color of brown you choose, but I found this look really easy to wear yet still sophisticated. As you can see, I kept the majority of the look monochromatic by wearing almost all black, which I think is the way to go. When wearing a two-toned outfit you want to make sure you don’t get too matchy matchy, otherwise the look can come off looking too contrived.
I kept my makeup super simple and even though I considered rocking a bold orangey-red lip, I opted against it, and went for a fresh faced look instead.
I love how our outfits coordinated so well. We didn’t even plan it!
Hope everyone is having a great week! xo
