Weekly Picks (3/30)

Instead of doing a normal Design Find post like I have been doing in the past, I thought that it would be fun to mix it up a little. From here on out I will be doing a weekly post with my favorite design finds as normal, but this time with my favorite fashion picks as well! Woohoo for more excuses to shop. [show_lookbook_widget id="274971"]   I hope that everyone has a lovely week! XOXO.

5 Reasons to Live Alone (At Some Point)

  When I graduated high school I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to move into an apartment with my best friend in downtown Dallas. Eighteen years old living downtown? Party time. It was so much fun getting to live with my best friend, but as much as I loved it, I craved a place that was all my own. (Sorry Haley, you know I love you). After living together for two years we decided to get our own respective bachelorette pads. Living alone was truly one of the best decisions that I have made. I have prospered and grown so much faster since I have moved into my own apartment. This has nothing to do with Haley or our friendship, but more so to do with the level of independence that living…

In the Trenches

Anyone that knows me on a personal level knows that I am truly obsessed with coats and jackets. But seriously though this isn't an "Omg I'm obsessed with those earrings obsession." This is a "Marie we are holding an intervention if you buy another blazer" kind of obsession. Hey, the first step to fixing a problem is... buy another trench coat. Wait no, whoops... admitting that you have one? That sounds right. | Gingham Trench Coat | Khaki Trench Coat | Navy Trench Coat | Violet Trench Coat | Striped Trench Coat | Light Blue Trench Coat | One day, I found the perfect khaki trench coat from Brooks Brothers that sparked my love for coats. I love a good winter coat, but my favorite pieces to style and wear are trench coats. These light…

We had a 90 degree day yesterday... Seriously? It's March. Texas, go home you're drunk. I have been loving all of the warm sunny days don't get me wrong, but I am a little sad that "winter" is over so quickly. But that means... SPRING SHOPPING! I've been loving the off the shoulder shirt trend this spring and this flouncy blue one is a favorite! I have a larger chest, so unfortunately I have to skip out on certain off the…

Styling a Bohemian Bar Cart

| Rattan Bar Cart, Serena and Lily | Margarita Glass, Crate and Barrel | Pineapple Tumbler, The Pineapple Co. | White Vase, Jonathan Adler | Coasters, Jonathan Adler via Lulu and Georgia | Match Book (Set of Three), Design Darling | Drink Umbrellas, Walmart | Monogrammed Ice Bucket, Mark and Graham (i'm seriously in love) | Bottle Opener, Mark and Graham | The warmer months of Spring and Summer are just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than getting drunk? Ahem I mean styling your bar cart. I typically gravitate toward modern chrome and glass pieces when it comes to interior design, so I thought that it would be fun to shake things up a bit with a touch of bohemian. On that note, if you typically like chrome and glass check out…

Spring Fashion Trends 2016

  As February draws to a close, we all have one thing on our minds: Leo finally won an Oscar. Just kidding. Spring. Spring is on our minds. It’s time to start shifting wardrobe gears and prepping our closets for the warmer months of Spring and Summer ahead. To say that I am excited would be a large understatement, but who am I kidding, I just use the changing weather as an excuse to do some heavy shopping. While I normally am not a huge trend shopper, there are some fashion trends that I have my eye on this spring. Off the Shoulder Tops They’re back ladies (and here you thought we didn’t see enough of them last year)! The off the shoulder trend is back in full swing and cuter than ever. Because…
