Friday Fashion Fix: A Little Bit of Magic!

Today's Casual Friday post is all about illuuuuuuuuusion. 

POOF! Like the rabbit out of the hat, my floral summer dress is now the skirt counter part to my classic silk blouse. Using your wardrobe in a versatile way means changing the way other people perceive your outfit. 

Give it a try. I bet you have two pieces in your wardrobe that could work together exactly like this.

Friday Fashion Fix: Chambray Day

Happy Friday! From now until forever I'll be featuring looks dedicated to Casual Friday on yes, you guessed it, Friday's! It's easy to think of Casual Friday as just an excuse to wear jeans, but ya know what?!? Some people only like to wear jeans once in a blue moon (like me!) especially in the Texas heat. 

So this day will be dedicated to exactly that: styling casual look I love, which are inspired by a wardrobe that's more than just casual.

Now I would love to hear from you! Are you excited for Casual Friday's? Let me know in the comments below what your casual wardrobe consists of!

A Dress in Three Acts

One thing my clients never say is that they don't have a favorite outfit. Everyone has a favorite outfit. No matter if function or high fashion is the most important component of what you wear to work or to play, we all reach for something in the morning. 

The problem my clients face time and time again is the inability to style their wardrobe or their favorite outfit in any way outside of the box. A white shirt can easily work with black pants or a navy dress and a tan blazer can easily fit together, but finding an outfit that excites and surprises you and the people around you is another story. 

 
 

Thus I found my topic for this month's post. Grab your favorite summer dress RIGHT NOW and pair it with something new, something you haven't thought of before.

I styled my favorite summer dress to give you some ideas on how to wear it from business to brunch. And don't forget to be brave! Your style is unique and specific to you. Treat it as so.

Take Your Wardrobe from Winter to Spring with These Six Looks

I've learned to always carry a purse big enough to fit a sweater, because every afternoon, that's exactly where my sweater ends up. Austin's weather is unpredictable, to say the least, and the past two weeks have been the worst of it. I'm really never sure what I'm going to get when I step out of my apartment. Even if the day starts out at 40 degrees, you could be sweating by the end of it. 

So! Because Austin likes to keep us guessing, I've put together looks to incorporate both winter and spring pieces for a chic style statement for whatever weather comes our way.

Winter Pieces: Leather Jacket + Infinity Scarf

Spring Pieces: Floral Dress + Open-Toe Pumps
