Taupe Dress – The Pink Lily Boutique

Fall is fast approaching! Although it’s WAY too hot for boots right now in Texas, I couldn’t resist throwing on this outfit to get in the fall mood. This taupe dress from The Pink Lily Boutique caught my eye with its feminine ruffles and slightly pink tinted hue. I paired it with my new lace up riding boots that I got during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The lace up back is just so unique, and it allows you to easily adjust the fit.

I am slowly but surely transitioning my closet to fall, which for me means lots of neutrals and lots of boots! I can totally picture wearing this outfit to a picnic on a crisp fall day, or even a casual country wedding. I don’t think I’ve ever been so ready for fall to get here! Anyone else craving a PSL?

Plaid Dress

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I absolutely love where I live! We get the best of both worlds because it feels like we live out in the country, but we are still close to restaurants and shopping. Just across from our house is a beautiful horse ranch (that I sometimes pretend is mine!). This adorable plaid dress from Brit Rose was made for a casual stroll in the countryside.

Brit Rose is a unique online clothing boutique with quite an amazing story. It is a non-profit organization, and all purchases support suicide prevention, mental illness, and bullying prevention charities. The founder of the Brit Rose Foundation, Tori Serpa, lost her daughter to suicide back in 2012. Her mission is to bring awareness on suicide prevention, bullying, and mental illness. Please take a few minutes to read about the Brit Rose Foundation and what you can do to help!

Ivory Romper




This past weekend at Lake Travis was amazing! Usually when Garrett and I travel, we have a packed itinerary and never get a chance to just take it easy. This time, we had a few things on the agenda, but had lots of time to lounge around and not have to rush from place to place. We stayed at the gorgeous Vintage Villas on Lake Travis, and it was the PERFECT place to just relax and take in the beautiful views of the lake.




On Saturday night, we had dinner at The Oasis (since it is known as the sunset capital of Texas). I paired this super cute BB Dakota romper with some gladiator sandals for a resort chic look. I am still so obsessed with my Vince Camuto bag that I got during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The brown is currently sold out, but the black and leopard options are adorable, too!






Vintage Villas is perfect if you are planning a getaway to the Austin, TX area. They have a gorgeous gazebo that overlooks the lake, which is great for weddings and parties. There is such a serene vibe around the villas, and the breakfast buffet is FABULOUS! We ate breakfast on the patio each morning and it was so peaceful to look out onto the lake as we planned the rest of our day.

Thank you to Vintage Villas for the lovely accommodations.

A Day at the Beach

When I think of the perfect weekend getaway, I think of relaxing on a beach without a care in the world while sailboats peacefully float by. Garrett and I drove down to Lake Travis this past weekend, and it was the perfect place to soak up some sun and escape reality for a couple of days. Any time I go to the beach, I have a few essentials that I can’t get by without:

Where would you go on your dream vacation? There’s still time left this summer for a relaxing getaway, whether it’s at the beach, the mountains, or a secluded cabin out in the country. It’s so therapeutic to just free your mind for a couple of days. Head over to for some vacation inspiration!
