Interior Design Turned Fashion: Girly Edge

The Interior Inspiration
The Look

Lately while shopping (now that I have a job) I've found myself drawn to mustard, a color I've never worn before. It's the perfect color for autumn and looks amazing paired with just about any color...like black & white in the outfit.  For this look I put together pieces with fun details like a skull ring, ruffled top, pleated skirt, and mary janes....just some of my favorite things. I can imagine myself wearing this out for a date night with the boyfriend. It's girly and pretty but still has some edge to it.

Where would you wear this look?

Team Spirit

Shirt: Gift, Skirt: Thrifted, Heels: Rebecca Minkoff
Pic location: Boyfriend's place

 The boyfriend is a huge baseball fan...his favorite team happens to be the Texas Rangers. Since dating him, he's made me a fan as well and we have been having fun cheering for them while they've been in the World Series. I decided to wear my team shirt today and dressed it up the best way I know how...a ruffled tulle skirt and killer heels. Get used to seeing these heels, I'll probably be wearing them all the time.  The boyfriend took these shoes off of my wish list, he's the best isn't he? The game just started so let's hope they win :)


Girl Around Town

For work reasons...still excited about that, I've been having to dress in all black.  Now I have a bunch of black clothing so it's not a problem finding an outfit to wear, but after 3 consecutive days of dressing only in black, it can be quite a drag.  So today I decided I would dress in one of my most girly outfits to  have fun in while running around town doing errands. My weekend is already full with plans, concert tomorrow, Halloween tea party on Sunday, and fitting homework somewhere in between. What plans do you have this weekend?

Scenes of Yesterday from my iPhone

Yesterday the boyfriend surprised me in the morning by telling me he had taken the day off from work. Do Monday's really get any better? We went out on a day date for shopping and lunch and by the time the afternoon strolled around, we were at the candy store stocking up on all the goods to go see the Lion King 3D...yes I know how old we are, but hey we're kids at heart. I love the Lion King, so does he, we have fun together like that :)


Early Mornings

I love early mornings out at the boyfriend's place.  There is always a nice fog covering the ground and the sunlight that hits between the trees is always so beautiful. I got the boyfriend to be my photographer and it was fun to have him behind the camera. Actually it was fun to have a photographer instead of pressing the timer button on my camera...having Chris be the photographer just made it better. There are plenty of areas around his home that I've been wanting to take photos at...I think his place is my new favorite photo shoot area. Do you have a favorite spot you like taking photos?


Wine Tasting Party

My family pretty much loves Halloween and we try to celebrate as many times as we can during the month.  Last night my sister decided to throw a Halloween wine tasting party with just the girls. Everyone brought different wines and had a bit of each. It was so much fun to sit around and have girl talk while enjoying a nice glass of wine and treats like cheeses, chocolate, grapes, and cupcakes. My sister makes the best chive and pecan cheeseball and she says it's super easy to make. I'll have to learn and share with all of you. This was the first time we've done a wine tasting party but we've already decided it's the kind of party we want to have often. Do you do anything fun leading up to the Halloween festivities? 


Pumpkin Patch

Do you ever go to a pumpkin patch during the fall? This was actually my first time...what?!? I know :) This may look like pumpkin overload but honestly the weather hasn't put me in the mood for autumn so I'm glad this pumpkin patch did. I'm now even more excited about everything like boots, leggings, chunky sweaters, changing leaves, and treats like hot chocolate and pumpkin spice lattes.  I even threw on my brown knee high boots despite the hot weather.  What's been putting you in the mood for all your favorite fall things?

I also wanted to take this time to give a special shout out to my October Sponsor.

I asked Melisa, What has been your favorite Halloween costume that you've dressed up as?
Be sure to check out her blog Pie N' The Sky.

Opal Eyes

Tunic: Express, Skirt: Rue 21, Boots: Charlotte Russe, Ring: Antique Shop

I hope all of you had a good weekend...I know I did.  I went to the UFC fight out here in Houston and had such a good time with our double date friends we go out with.  I heard GSP, my favorite fighter was in town but I didn't see him at the fight :( I was really looking forward to seeing him look sexy in his suit. Anyway I wanted to show all of you this ring I bought. It's been a few months since I've had it but honestly I'm so bad with keeping up with jewelry, I thought I had lost it. 

William & Scar wanted to make another appearance on the blog :)

I'm actually loving how long my legs look in these pics...but then again the skirt was a bit short :)

Did you do anything fun this weekend? Do tell!!


Mexican Flowers

 Top: Borrowed/Stolen, Jeans: Gap, Wedges: Marshalls, Bag: Giveaway

Hey dolls don't you just love this bag I'm carrying?? Well guess what...I won this!! Yup it came in the mail yesterday and I've fallen so in love with the colorful mexican style. I decided to wear a simplistic outfit because I feel like anything else would be too much and compete with the beauty of the bag. Although I don't wear jeans that often, I happen to think a classic white tee and jeans is a look you can never go wrong with. I found a top that had pretty details and knotted it up. It actually belongs to my sis but she left it behind when she moved...finders keepers right? She won't mind :) 

You must check out Frank Vinyl, the blog I won this bag from. Francesca is so stylish!

P.S. I had a job interview today. I think it went well, so cross your fingers and wish me luck!
