Marmont Mini Crossbody Bag Gucci // Camel Leather jacket Nordstrom // Open Toe Booties Nordstrom // Plaid Pants (similar) H&M
You know I’m lover of the edgy black leather jacket, but this season it’s needing a rest. Poor thing is tired. Have you exhausted yours season after season? Of course, keep it as a go-to, but try something new like this gorgeous camel jacket I found. It’s ridiculously soft and feels like buttaaaa!! I love the way it highlights my Gucci handbag, too.
On a side note, when the Gucci Marmont collection came out … I. WAS. OBSESSED. I put a photo of this bag on my vision board at the beginning of the year then low and behold, my amazing hubby got it for me for my birthday in August. WooHoo! As we start working on our vision boards for 2018, remember to leave it hanging for your man to see! *wink.
As I always say, shop your closet first. A friend of mine just told me she totally forgot about a camel jacket she had in another closet! When you select quality investment pieces, you will be able to wear them for years to come.
Let’s strut into December and slay the holiday!

Did you know the right shoes can make you feel powerful? Just ask Cinderella. A shoe that makes me feel extra sassy is the bootie. What exactly is a “bootie”? It’s basically any boot that is cropped short around the ankle area. I stumbled upon a few fabulous pairs from Nordstrom Rack last week and just had to share them with you in this candid video:
My 4 Must Have Booties For Fall 2016:
1. BLACK SLOUCHY. “Laurel” Kristen Cavallari for Chinese Laundry
If you had to pick just one, I highly recommend getting this Kristen Cavallari for Chinese Laundry “Laurel”. Seriously, I have no idea how I have been living without these. Thanks Courtney Kerr!
2. PURPLE OR BURGUNDY SUEDE. GX By Gwen Stefani
3. NUDE/TAN SUEDE SLOUCHY. Dolce Vita
4. BLACK CHUNKY LUG SOLE. Kendal & Kylie for Steve Madden

I mentioned in the Top 10 Fall Must Haves that I would give you a totally separate video on various ways to wear the “It” shirt for Fall. I like to keep my promises! The 70’s suede skirt may not be for everyone, but I definitely think it’s a must have for the true fashion mavens. From super casual to girls night out, this skirt is so fun and versatile!

Hello Sweet Sistas!
I’ve been MIA due to being severely spoiled for my birthday last week. They say everything is bigger in Texas and my hubby, family & besties blew my mind with a Texas size week-long celebration. So here’s some beauty, style and inspiration to kick off the last week of August.
I had minimal time to style my hair for a fancy birthday dinner and attempted to copy a rocker chignon by the fabulous Canadian Hairstylist of the Year (4 x’s) Rocky Vitelli. Super fun and simple. Side-swiped bangs, low side pony then divide the pony in 2 sections. Wrap one section around the ponytail holder and pin. Do it again with the 2nd section. Leave a few hairs loose and messy for an edgy look. Voila!
While I was shopping the end of Summer sales (remember it’s one of the best times to shop because stores need to make room for all the new Fall merchandise) I scored at Nordstrom Rack. never underestimate the power of a bold blazer, v- neck tee and skinny jeans- Paige Denim originally $239 for ONLY $30! Paige Denim is one of my favorite denim brands because they are cut so flattering and made with durable & stretchy fabric.
This is a beautiful & powerful affirmation for us all to take into the week ahead…
Who aspires this with me?
Enjoy the last week of Summer sistas.
Who is loving Twenty Twelve so far?
I’m sure everyone is getting back on the program and with all the gifts, extra dinners and groceries that are bought during the holidays- we’re all cutting back not only on the eating, but on the spending too! So, right now is the perfect time to chat about one of my favorite topics…BUDGET SHOPPING! Actually, now is a great time to pick up any wardrobe basics you need. Most stores are having huge sales through January.
After I got married and finances were tight, I learned very quickly how to keep up my passion-for-fashion and look stylish on a fraction of my previous shopping budget! Now,we have more options than ever for finding great deals on great clothing, accessories and shoes! I’m planning on taping more webisodes on how to put together fabulous outfits from places like Nordstrom Rack, Marshall’s, TJ Maxx and H&M. Those are the first 4 spots I hit!
Outfit under $150:
Slouchy Beanie $5- Forever 21, Long T-shirt $16.99- Target, Leggings $6.99- TJ Maxx, Boots $100- Marshall’s, Socks $5-Marshall’s, Hoop Earrings $10-Nordstrom Rack (jacket was a gift)
PLUS SOME MOTIVATION:
I got several naps over the weekend and woke up on Monday with an extra helping of MOTIVATION! So, I decided to share some with you. This topic was actually a post I had made on the SOS facebook page: BE CONSCIOUS OF NEGATIVE SELF-TALK.
An effective tool for staying positive- hang affirmations everywhere to remind yourself! I love these by Louis Hay…
Keep the feedback, comments + questions coming! I appreciate every single one!
Remember, it’s all about us being fabulous TOGETHER!
