If you’re in the Dallas-Fort Worth area this weekend, you know about the incredibly strong winds that have been (literally) knocking us over. Hats and maxi-dresses don’t typically pair with strong winds, but you already know I’m willing to suffer for the sake of style.
Skip to the end of this post for exciting updates on the future of my blog!
This gorgeous maxi dress is one that I snatched from a local online (FB) boutique called Cowtown Couture, but the dress is a whole-sale boutique only piece by Reb & J. However, you can check out this totally similar one! The hat is my favorite Madewell piece right now, and you check it out in one of my other posts, My Favorite Summer Brand. The necklace was a gift from Starfish Project, a fabulous jewelry company that donates proceeds and gives jobs to exploited women. I can’t wait to buy stuff from them in the future! Check out the look below:
BIG NEWS ALERT!

As an avid online shopper, it’s easy for me to find great deals and immediately buy.
I was searching through the sale items on J. Crew, and I found these light wash jeans for like $12… amazing. Being me, I confused the 26″ inseam for the waist, and typed in my card info.
In came the package, and I ripped it open to find what looked like kid jeans. I grabbed the receipt, and to my horror discovered that I made a big mistake.
It was time to get crafty, because no returns on sale items!
I pulled out my seam ripper and did just that, ripped open the hem and frayed it a little. Bam! On trend, cropped, distressed, Denim.
I casually paired it with this Madewell muscle tank and my adidas sneaks (you can literally find them anywhere). You can find the shady details about my sunnies in previous posts.

I don’t quite remember how I discovered this brand, but when I did, an obsession was born. Madewell is basically a casual, neutral J. Crew. Everything on their Instagram feed is actually perfect, and I can’t wait to copy their looks this summer! Here’s the first look I’ve put together from my new favorite summer brand.
The pull on shorts are so extremely comfortable, but the in-store stylist suggested that I go down a size, because they stretch (just heads up!). The hat is going to be such a trend this spring and summer, so their inexpensive, pack-able straw hat is a necessity. The silk bandana scarf is also in my other look, Denim on Denim. The sandals from Topshop are so simple and cute, but are still a nice change from everybody in gladiators.
Check out the look, and lemme know what you think!
Funny story about the drink I’m holding in these photos:
I was walking around downtown Kansas City, and I ordered that new drink at Starbucks, the Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato, it just rolls off the tongue. So the barista accidentally makes a hot chocolate in my cup, and the mocha in some little kid’s cup. I get about half way through the hot chocolate before I realize this isn’t coffee. I feel really sorry for the Mom of the kid drinking coffee right now!
Not that funny, but it isn’t very chic that I’m drinking hot chocolate in these pics…
I love this denim jacket that I just got from Gap’s Re-Issue Collection. The Icon 1969 Denim Jacket is so versatile, and the saddle blue wash is perfect for pairing with a light wash on bottom. I’m just wearing a simple white tee from Nordstrom, but the highlight of this look is the cute silk neck tie from Madewell. This Silk Bandana absolutely makes this look. Any light wash jeans would work with this outfit, but I’m wearing my boyfriends from H&M. As always in cold weather, my favorite J. Crew boots (these are in a different print).
