It has been a long-ass time since I last did an Instagram roundup. Like probably almost a year. So… I’m probably a bit overdue on giving y’all a chance to shop some of my looks that never made it to the blog. Apologies for that.
If you don’t yet follow me on Instagram (or you don’t use LIKEtoKNOW.it), you might’ve missed the chance to shop my Instagram posts. BTW / for the record: at any time, you can shop my Instagram posts by clicking “LIKEtoKNOW.it” in the navigation bar at the top of any page on my blog!
Dress: Cynthia Rowley (via Rent the Runway) / Heels: Cole Haan
Sorry for the graininess / blurriness on this photo but I just had to share it – I love this dress that much. Also y’all really loved it when I posted it on Instagram, so I wanted to give you the chance to nab it. And this dress might just be one of my favorite dresses I’ve ever worn to an opera. It was big (aka had that “princessy” feel), pink, and it had pockets.
Pockets, y’all. Boom.
I snapped this shot just before I went into the opera – doesn’t the Austin skyline just look so amazing!?
Scarf: Nordstrom (similar, similar) / Dress: Waverly Grey / Ring: BaubleBar / Earrings: Kate Spade
I love a good blanket scarf.
No news there.
These f’ers are warm as all get-out and super stylish. Definitely one of my favorite must-have items for the winter!
Dress: ERIN Erin Fetherston (via Rent the Runway)
It’s no secret that I love literally anything with a bow. I’m seriously like Goldmember… but with bows.
And I bet that that wasn’t a sentence you were expecting to read today.
But seriously though: this dress is no exception to my love of bows. I’ve worn it to a wedding and to an opera, but it’d be perfect for any cocktail / semiformal event. If you’re interested in grabbing a similar frock, I also love this red dress, this pink dress (on sale!), and this navy dress.
I’ve probably said this like 470 times by now, but I absolutely loved this novel. It’s by far my favorite novel I read over the past few months. I sobbed through the second half of the book. Like… sobbed.
I also recently read (and enjoyed) The Last Woman Standing (historical fiction), The Daughters of Palatine Hill (also historical fiction), Victoria (also historical fiction), The Accidental Empress (also also historical fiction), and Luckiest Girl Alive (definitely not historical fiction). I’m currently about halfway through The Girl on the Train and next on my list is either The Couple Next Door or The Good Girl.
Sweater: J.Crew / Shirt: Brooks Brothers / Pants: J.Crew
Shoes: Louise et Cie / Purse: J.Crew, old (similar)
I loved my time at Disney World two weeks ago. I actually posted this while on a mad dash to grab dinner in France (in Epcot… haven’t yet learned how to bend space and time so I can get from Texas to France just for dinner).
You might recognize this sweater as I posted it a lot this winter. Because it is seriously one of my favorite sweaters. And because leopard is totally a neutral.
What you might not know is I bought these shoes on a whim on my first night in Orlando. I had arrived expecting 50s and 60s, and it turned into 70s and 80s. And my footwear (aka boots) was unprepared for that heat. So I went out and bought legit the most comfortable flats I’ve ever owned. Highly highly recommend them. I didn’t get a single blister during my week at Disney World, despite walking 7-10 miles each day!
Desk: West Elm / Chair: Pottery Barn / Lamp: similar
Mug: similar, similar, similar / Headphones: Beats
Ah, my workspace. Or rather, I should say “workspace” because really that desk is used for storage and that chair is used for clothes. And I do 99% of my work from the comfort of my couch.
But, yeah, we’ll call it my “workspace”.
Blazer: J.Crew/ Blouse: Last Call / Skirt: J.Crew / Shoes: Cole Haan
Purse: Louise et Cie / Watch: Daniel Wellington, c/o
And, last but not least: a little back-to-school look.
And a reminder that blazers and mini skirts look pretty kickin’ paired together.
