Happy Friday! I can't believe Halloween is only one week away! I hope you've got your costume prepped and ready to go. I will be working on mine this weekend and I'm so excited! I'm hosting a Halloween party at my house this year and cannot wait to get all of the decorations up. Today I'm making my first batch (of many!) of pumpkin muffins this season.

Here are some links that are getting me ready for fall! Enjoy your weekend :)

Life + State Fair of Texas


I can't believe it has been almost a month since my last post! I know sometimes life just gets busy, but for me it was the feeling of guilt for not blogging that kept me away even longer! I would love to be able to post everyday, but that's not a realistic expectation to have for myself, especially as we get close to the holiday season(!!!). So, here's to accepting that I'm not going to be perfect, but to get right back to it even when I drop the ball.

During my time away some wonderful things have been happening here in Dallas: two of my close friends are engaged, complete with surprise engagement parties! I love weddings (and parties of any kind) and am thrilled to be invloved in some of the planning.

Last night I went to the Texas State Fair and had a blast with Big Tex (in the first photo above) and some of my favorite girls, which included eating every imaginable fried food that we could get our hands on (#yolo). And I'm pretty sure I'll be going again before fair season is over.

During this busy season, I'm trying to focus on the reasons behind why I am busy: this weekend, I'm visiting some life-long friends in Houston for a reunion. So, instead of focusing on a 5 hour drive and quick turn-around time, I'm choosing to focus on the sweet friends who I will be reunited with and making new memories with them. Happy weekend!

Fall Booties


fall fashion, booties,

1. Seychelles suede bootie // 2. Steve Madden nyrvana boot // 3. BC underneath bootie //
4. Franco Sarto linden leather bootie // 5. Ivanka Trump belted bootie // 6. BP trolley leather bootie

Dallas experienced a nice cold front last weekend and I was so excited to break out my fall wardrobe. I am a huge fan of booties for fall, but when I was taking inventory of my closet over the weekend, I realized I didn't have many options for fall footwear! I went shopping today and solved that problem, and now I'm looking forward to wearing my new cute booties this season with boyfriend jeans and dresses alike. These are a few of my favorite picks- all under $150!

Explore Your City


I'm always sad to say goodbye to a long holiday weekend, but I love looking at all the photos and remembering how much fun weekends can be! I had the best Labor Day, spent enjoying friends and the great city we live in- Dallas, TX! 
This amazing mural by Kyle Steed is one of the hidden gems that Dallas is home to; we spent one afternoon at the mural and had a blast being silly and taking pictures.

A short river float trip, amazing mexican food, and some competitive volleyball games rounded out the long weekend; I love having extra time to spend with friends! Hope you had a great weekend!
