Shopping List: Time to Fiesta!

Summer is full of opportunities to fiesta….AKA opportunities to wear this fun pom pom skirt from Adeline! One major opportunity to unwind after work is Adeline’s grand reopening party coming up on August 10 from 6-8pm! My favorite Dallas boutique is moving just a few doors down from its current location and will be unveiling a whole new experience and even more brands…in style, of course!

Give me all the pom poms!

Adeline is offering all guests 15% off all purchases, along with exclusive giveaways, complimentary cocktails, and braids by new local business Mermaid Braid Bar! Because what’s better than a braid to keep you cool on a 90+ degree summer day in Dallas? Not much, and I already mentioned cocktails.

This party also happens to be the perfect pregame for a dinner at newly opened Hudson House, also conveniently located on Lovers Lane. Lots of opportunities for pineapple-themed snaps (and a menu that’s easy to fall in love with). OR go to Chip’s and have a burger and fries. Your call!

Four Better Beauty Brands

I recently decided to make the move over to cleaner skincare and beauty products. When it comes to what I eat, I always try to buy organic and read labels, so I figured it was time to do the same with the products I put on my skin!

New natural skincare and beauty product lines launch every day, and it can be tricky to find high performing products that are also safe, so today I’m sharing four of my favorites!

rewardStyle Mural - The Liberty List

Shopping List: Spring Frosé Date

Time for the first Shopping List post in a minute! You guys know I love a good frosé, and The Standard Pour’s happy hour special hit the spot last week. Also, I’ve been dying to go check out the adorable new rewardStyle mural. The outfit I’m featuring today features a bodysuit from Adeline. Yes, a bodysuit. Your summer outfits just got WAY easier.

Adeline Bodysuit- The Liberty List

This ruffle bodysuit also comes in a variety of colors! I decided to go with my fave (black, neutral).

Bodysuits are seriously bringing me back to my ballet days…I paired this one with a J. Crew skirt and pair of leopard sandals. Throw on a fun pair of earrings like these tassel hoops I picked up at FleaStyle and you’ve got a winning outfit. Check out the other bodysuit colors here.

10 Last Minute Gifts to Buy 10 Days Before Christmas

It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but let’s not kid ourselves by saying it’s stress free. Every year, I tell myself I will start Christmas shopping earlier. Every year, I tell myself I will avoid the mall and buy all of my gifts online. And every year, I inevitably end up at the mall with all of the holiday shoppers asking myself where things went wrong.

So to help you out this holiday season, here are 10 items that you can easily write down, pick up (or ship – Hi, Amazon) just in time for Christmas. There’s something on this list for everyone – your foodie friend, your man friend, your friend that really loves pizza. Links below for easy shopping!

Shopping List: Olive

PSA: olive just might be the new navy, you guys. While I love my neutrals, I’m serious when I say I am really feeling this color for fall. If you’re not so much, don’t worry. Adeline also carries the top I’m featuring in this post in blue! AND it’s under $50. Score!

Location: Stirr in Deep Ellum.

G and I decided to use Stirr as a backdrop for this installment of Shopping List. Talk about gorgeous views of downtown!

Shopping List: Hot off the shoulder

I must say, I am LOVING the off the shoulder situation that’s happening this summer. Like this, and this, and this adorable dress I’m featuring today from Adeline.

Location: Truck Yard.

The off the shoulder dress is just so…easy. And chic. And “wear anywhere.” So dealing with the occasional outfit adjustment after grabbing something off of a high shelf is fine with me. I paired it with a long beaded necklace (also from Adeline) for Truck Yard, and a pair of turquoise Kendra Scott earrings for the following weekend. Yes, I wore this outfit twice in a row – and I’m not sorry. I’ll probably toss it in my bag for this weekend too.

And did I mention how perfect this outfit is for the Fourth of July? Just add some red lipstick and you’re good to go. My kind of outfit.

Shopping List: Poolside Patterns

With Memorial Day Weekend (#MDW) behind us, summer is officially here! Which means you can find me, drink in hand, poolside pretty much every weekend I’m in town.

Undoubtedly one of my favorite parts of this ridiculously hot season is the pool-to-lunch-to-wherever poolside cover up uniform. It’s just SO easy. And comfortable. If you’re lucky, you can even find a cover up that actually doubles as a dress (which makes it that much easier and more socially acceptable to wear your swimsuit and coverup all day, every day) like the one I’m featuring today from Adeline!
