Versatile Fashion Pt. 1: 1 Skirt 5 Ways

1 skirt 5 ways: If you are anything like me, versatile pieces take up a large part of your wardrobe! I need my clothes to take me through each season if possible, so I can mix and match to create new looks all the time! I tend to hold onto my clothes for years so I really look for items that can work hard for me and that flatter my petite 5’2 figure.

When I found this rust colored corduroy skirt with buttons, I knew I had to have it! There is just something about this color that calls my name! This length of skirt really helps me feel as tall as possible and this one especially feels sophisticated, fun, and is SO versatile! I could have done 10, 15, 25 looks or MORE, honestly! I am really looking forward to styling this skirt a TON this fall! I’m not a celebrity, so there’s no “one and done” around here when it comes to fashion! 😉 When I love something, I wear it like crazy!

SO, here it is: 1 skirt, 5 ways.

I can envision SO many date night variations with this skirt and intend to try them out for sure!

Welcome Spring

Welcome Spring – Transitioning your look with colorful, statement making accessories.

Oh Spring….. you have my heart! Cool days, bright sunshine, green grass, flowers, and patios…… it is the perfect season, if you ask me! A few days ago, I met my bestie Jess for one of these cool, bright, patio enjoying days! Cupcakes and coffee, yes please!! BIRD Bakery is just the cutest! A yummy almond milk vanilla latte, my DIVINE gluten free vanilla cupcake, one of my very favorite people, and an adorable patio….. I was (and AM) SOLD!! I’ll drive to Dallas every day for that, thank you!! I won’t lie though….. watching Troy Aikman walk right in front of me as I parked my car was a fun perk too! 🙂

We were even able to squeeze in a few photos after cupcakes, with my new camera…. Hello Canon! My Nikon has been very good to me, but after 10 years I decided to make a switch I have dreamt about for at least, half of my career!

One of my favorite parts about Spring is adding new, fun, and colorful accessories, with my seasonal (still a bit chilly outside) outfits! For this look, I immediately knew I had to wear my newest teal, fringe earrings! I’m only sad that this color isn’t available for you guys right now…. but I am linking LOTS of beautiful options that are all in the same style! If you ever need accessory help, I am SO your girl!! (*Internet shopping fanatic*) (oooops) lol

Besides having my camera turned on me, thank you Jess (She’s so awesome!!!)…… I also shot her cool/cute look for the day! She is seriously SO gorgeous, and always puts the coolest looks together! If you’re new here…. she is a designer, stylist, and online boutique owner….and you HAVE to get to know her! She is doing it all, and is the quintessential #momboss and my true blue soul sister!! <3

Fashion – Black Embroidered Dress, a Closet Staple

I’m a sucker for flowy and flattering pieces that transition well, and this black embroidered dress is SO good!! I’ll be linking this exact one, as well as a few others that I’m really loving at the bottom. Transitioning from Spring to Summer to Fall and Winter is so easy in this dress! Add booties at the start of Fall….. tights and knee high or over the knee boots when it gets chilly…. even add leggings for extra warmth and a leather jacket on top with a great chunky scarf in the middle of winter! You don’t have to spend a lot on staples and this one is so affordable!

So you’re going to Egypt. What to pack, a conservative adventure in the summer.

What to pack for Egypt in the Summer? I’ve got you covered…….. LITERALLY! 😉

My very dear friend and most trusted makeup artist, Meagan is an avid traveler and adventurer. To say her passport gives me travel envy would be an understatement! She recently booked an August trip to Egypt and asked me to help her build a very conservative capsule wardrobe to pack for her trip. Not much skin can show, so I had to be very aware of lengths and necklines. Not to mention having to be smart about fabrics, for breathability in the very high heat!

Her palette is Olive, Black, Khaki, and White with pops of color through accessories for some flare! SO, here we go…..

This pair of olive harems is HER first find, and we are building from here… love these!!

I had so much fun putting these options together for her nine day trip to Egypt this August! Take some, leave some, and build your own collection from these options. This wardrobe could truly work for any trip, or general day to day! I love the muted neutral tones and pops of color throughout the accessories! Speaking of accessories, you’ll notice all of these beauties are from Stella & Dot which has been my very favorite one stop for jewelry and accessories for quite some time! I just decided to be a stylist so if you need anything, just ask! I won’t usually be solely pushing one brand as I love so many, but I knew these pieces would be great for this collection!

Are YOU going anywhere fun this summer??? I’d love to hear about your trip in the comments below! <3, Lisa

Fashion at S.I.C. Couture, a Dallas boutique.

The minute I found out that one of my very best friends was going to move back to Dallas after being in New York designing and running her fashion line for four years, I was THRILLED! Turned out she was going to have a precious baby AND open a store on McKinney Avenue in Dallas. Talk about HUGE! This girl does nothing at a minimum. Her name is Jessica, and she is my soul sister. If you haven’t yet been to S.I.C. Couture, GO…. just GO! Then report back to me on how much you also love it so we can swoon together. She has created a space that feels inviting, and cozy, yet chic and rustic! How? I don’t really know, except that when I’m there I just feel….. happy.

On top of maintaining and running her store in person, she also operates the store online and even has a YouTube channel featuring beautiful short films showing how to style her pieces in many different ways! She’s such a style icon to me, seriously. I’ve never known someone who could so perfectly layer a sweater over a dress in the winter and have it look so fashion forward and flattering!! We decided to have a little try on session on my last trip over and needless to say, I soaked it up!! Here are some of her current pieces!
