Hi there! How have things been these last 4 1/2 month? I certainly didn’t expect to take that long of a break from the blog. I shopped some. I’ve worn some outfits. I’ve worked out, a lot. And the biggest change is that I chopped all my hair off. It was something I needed to do and I LOVE my new style.

I had it done on my 45th birthday. It ended up being a bright spot of the Summer as everything went to crap after that. I’ve had a few health issues and doctors appointments but I think I’m in the clear with everything now. It sucks getting old.

I’ll be back to blogging again and have a few review posts scheduled for this week. Time is probably my biggest hurdle right now but I hope to have 2-3 post a week for you.

I’ll leave you this evening with my birthday outfit. I wasn’t quite sure about the Linen Jumpsuit from J.Crew because it looked and fit a little odd in the back, just above the pockets. I ended up keeping it and wearing it for my birthday and felt amazing all day. The necklace and earrings are from Kendra Scott and were my birthday gift from my husband.

Have a wonderful evening!

Let’s take a little break from Olympics watching to view Kendra Scott’s Fall 2016 Collection. My friends have been wearing Kendra Scott for a while and last November I finally found something I liked in the Amanda Pendant. I’m not into the colored Danielle earrings but I do like the jewelry with the natural stones such as the Shelli Cuff or the Jayce Necklace in Gray Granite or Lapis. The Gray Granite is probably my favorite stone from the collection. There are several other items I would love to have including the Samantha Necklace or the Sally Ring.

And here’s a little promo for you. Now until August 13 you can take $40 off your purchase of $200 with code SHOPSTYLE. So go take a look at the Fall 2016 Collection.

I am really happy I returned the Yoshi Sweater in Jet and bought the Midnight Red instead. And I sized down to the XS as well, making it a much better fit though still slouchy.

I wore this to my store’s Anthropologie Holiday Fashion Show held last week. I really enjoy when my store has these events, as they are so fun and I meet new people who have a love for Anthro too.


I love wearing my Wide-Leg Crop Jeans but I did find a new pair at Anthro that I can’t wait to share with you!


I should have picked a bigger necklace but I can’t stop wearing my new Kendra Scott Amanda Pendant.

I was able to get the Yoshi Sweater during the 35% off promo which was a much better deal than $75 off $200. And, it was packaged just as well as my previous order, including the Lavender Sachet.

I hope you’re having a good Thanksgiving. I’m about to get my grub on. We usually eat at 2 so I’m patiently waiting for some yummy food by online shopping the already online Black Friday promos.

Last weekend I was up in Dallas to celebrate my best friend’s birthday. She’ll be 30 next week, over the Thanksgiving weekend, so her Husband planned dinner and a night out in Lower Greenville.


I knew the weather would be chilly that night so I wanted to be sure and dress in layers since we would be inside and outside throughout the evening. I also knew I was going to wear the Violet Poppy Mini Skirt. I had ordered the Carrie Cami in Blue Grotto and thought it was perfect to bring out the same color in the skirt. I added the Jenna Cardigan in black (similar) and used my Black Lexington Blazer (Rhodes)as my coat. I debated on wearing heels or not, but in the end the heeled Bronson Booties (JC Adele) won out. I was pretty comfortable in them all night. I kept my jewelry to a minimum and wore my new Kendra Scott Amanda necklace in Pyrite. I am not a fan of the brightly colored necklaces and earrings but the Amanda necklace was unique and a better fit to my style. I’ve actually been wearing it every time I go out.


My friend had mentioned she wanted gold “30” balloons. Her cake was from a bakery very near the restaurant.



The evening was so much fun and I love spending time with my girls!
