Gucci Dupes under $25

Gucci Dupes under $25

Why pay $995 when you can order these babies and get the same look for more than a fraction of the cost!

I first saw these as I, per the usual, breezed through the aisles of Targ {don’t we all} helping a friend shop for shoes. My friend and I immediately had to have them {she was a little apprehensive 😬 but I told her she could rock them}! And she did! And so did I! 🤓

These loafers also come without the fur and is a more traditional slide-in loafer. Also a great choice.

As you can see, I’ve been LIVING in these all fall/winter season! I totally recommend them and the price point can’t be beat.

BOTTOM LINE: you need them.

Even as Spring approaches, I’ll be pairing these with cute dresses, skirts, denim, and even to the pool! The fur is super resilient and I really did wear these to a friend’s pool, because TX was behind on the cold weather memo for more than a minute this fall 🙄.

Shop my fur loafers here $24.99 | Shop my loafers minus the fur here :: come in black and silver {love them!} and are currently on sale!

Much love, loves!

Daniel Wellington | Fall Release: The Classic Petite Ashfield {discount code}

Daniel Wellington | Fall Release: The Classic Petite Ashfield {discount code}

I don’t think Daniel Wellington produces a bad watch. I really don’t. They are the epitome of classy style that can be worn as arm candy on a daily basis.

And their latest, is no exception. Earlier this Fall, they released the Classic Petite Ashfield watch. Now, you may remember my other IG posts about my DW Classic Black Sheffield watch with the gorgeous, black leather band. How this one differs is that it has a mesh band instead of a leather one which makes it easy to style with dressier items such as ball gowns, LBD’s (Little Black Dresses), dressy casual attire for work or while enjoying a nice cup of french press at your local coffee shop, as pictured! 🙂

I have enjoyed this watch so much and I know you will to! I am constantly getting compliments on it and find myself wearing it on a DAILY BASIS. Definitely my GO TO WATCH 😉 and since I already have the cuff, it pairs perfectly, if I do say so myself!

Now for the part you have all been waiting for…enjoy 15% off of my watch or whatever you find to your liking on their website HERE using code CHARITY15 | That’s right, anything off their website…15% off your entire order {insert surprise face emoji} until November 8th. So share this with ya friends, even men too!

you deserve it babes!

Much Love, Loves,

C I T Y L I N E | Best kept secret in Dallas “burbs” 

C I T Y L I N E | Best kept secret in Dallas “burbs” 

Happy almost Summer, loves! As I sit here writing, I’m thinking back on my first evening I ever spent at Cityline. I had a friend in from out-of-town and wanted to take her somewhere fun and away from all the places I see on a daily basis, without having to drive into Dallas {it was a Friday evening and I didn’t feel like fighting traffic}. One key fact about me: I am NOT a creature of habit. In fact, I despise doing the same thing all the time. I gotta change it up a lot. HOWEVER, when I find a place that has cool vibes, I can’t help myself.

CITYLINE does this for me and has one of the coolest vibes I’ve seen this side of I-635 in a while.

Raymond and I lived in Downtown Dallas right after we were married and got spoiled by all the eclectic {non-chain} places to go eat and hang out in the Downtown/Uptown/Deep Ellum neighborhoods. When we moved back to the “burbs” we were like, chain restaurants galore and hardly any health conscious places. As I mentioned before, I’m not a creature of habit and quite honestly, chains aren’t my cup of tea. I like supporting local when possible and I definitely like good food. So we found ourselves tearing up the highways to hit up our spots in D-town. Y’all have seen my Instagram, ya girl can eat 😉

First Night at Cityline | 12.22.16

So last year I kept noticing the “State Farm building” started putting up restaurant signs off President George Bush Highway and a few of them I recognized such as Coal Vines, Tom + Chee and I thought to myself, their going to build this place up now that State Farm people are here. It’s going to be a little State Farm world. I mean , come on, that’s a lot of employees! Little did I know, it was going to turn into this amazing place that I would go to every chance I got!

Now, Cityline is huge. I had actually gone to Phase 1 back in the last Summer because Ray and I heard there was a Taco Diner there-OUR FAVE, yes i know it’s a chain but the atmosphere is cool and that green sauce they serve I could DRINK! So we went there and realized there was a Whole Foods, Pei Wei, Luna Market, Starbucks, and even a Mod Market {which is a yummy farm-to-table restaurant that serves up a lush American fare–think homestyle healthy}!

Phase 2 is more sit down, sit back and relax type restaurants. A little higher end type places for business meetings, night out on the town type places but still a very reasonable price. I’ve been to pretty much that entire strip and here’s where my adventures have led me to eat and experience thus far…

TRICKY FISH | SEAFOOD Tricky fish serves up some of the best cajun seafood Raymond and I have ever eaten and the price point can’t be beaten! Hello, raw oysters on the half-shell for $12.99 in Dallas?? NOT kidding! Plus, delicious gumbo even our Louisiana cajuns loved!

TOP POT | DOUGHNUTS & COFFEE

Top Pot had yummy coffee but their doughnuts weren’t anything to write home about and the variety wasn’t there either. I will definitely try them out again because it had just opened when I went so give it a try for sure, even if you just have a Cup o’ Joe!

FERNANDO’S | MEXICAN 

The friendly staff and food just can’t be beat. I’m also a huge hot sauce eater/drinker and I love that they serve 4 completely different sauces with the delicious, crisp chips. Spicy and non-spicy! I can’t believe I haven’t taken more photos than this but it seems their food just finds it’s way to my mouth before I can click a camera! I only have this one of the shrimp cocktail which was full of big gulf shrimp and took me back to my Veracruz, Mexico, my dad’s home state. Veracruz is known for their seafood and I have JUST the tastebuds to scope it out!

EDOKO | SUSHI

Steak & Mushroom | California Roll with Snow Crab | Green Hulk Roll

Fried Green Ice Cream 

GOOD UNION | URBAN BBQ

Now you all know my love for my “babies” AKA my nephew, Packy Butt and neice, Pressy Butt, I spoil these angels rotten! I brought them to Cityline’s LIVE MUSIC SERIES that’s still going on, by the way, and we had a blast! Just look at this flatlay I captured of them eating at my favorite BBQ spot! This was Union’s Happy Hour, $2 tacos, $4 brisket nachos…ummm, yea, you need to go!

We saved our picnic table which was right outside the restaurant and ran back and forth between it and the green lawn. A lot of people actually grabbed food and at on the lawn with picnic blankets but I didn’t think that far ahead and a picnic table was good enough for me 😉

yea…the picnic table didn’t last long, they lost their appetites quick when they realized I was going to let them run around wild! #auntlife

I mean really…she’s the Good Union model! Handkerchief and all!

We LOVED the LIVE MUSIC and ambiance of the night. He was incredible and interacted with the audience a lot! Even took requests!

And of course, I treated them to Red Mango | NESTLE Toll House Cafe afterwards where you can literally get fro-yo, fresh squeezed juices, ice cream, ice cream cake and coffee {good coffee} all in the same place. They have so much and it’s ALL YUMMY!

I definitely recommend CITYLINE to take kids to when they have these outdoor events. It’s safe, fun and you can get enjoy the evening as well as enjoy watching the kiddos play. Just be sure to treat them to a sweet treat afterwards 😉

CITYLINE is also fun to spend…

SATUR-YAY | AFTERNOONS 

We came out to meet friends for a afternoon lunch and enjoyed the fresh weather! There’s so many places to sit and walk around afterwards. 

I am still experiencing the place myself but what I’ve seen so far, I love! Raymond and I will be doing a hotel stay at the ALOFT HOTEL when it’s finished being built next month! Again, if you’re from the Dallas area, this is a great place to come for you next date night or just a new, fresh hangout spot with friends.

Until next time…

Much Love, Loves

P.S Look out for Pt. 2

Lou & Grey Spring Collection 2017 | In-Store Event 

Lou & Grey Spring Collection 2017 | In-Store Event 

IN MARCH, I had hosted my third event I have done with Lou & Grey and every time their latest collection amazes me. I’m honored to do these events and be there to meet and greet fellow fashion goers.

One of the neatest things about Lou & Grey is the fabric and material all of their clothes are made of! Buttery soft doesn’t even begin to describe it! You will love in their clothes. They have a SignatureSoft Collection but quite honestly I think all of their apparel is Signature Soft!

So without further adieu, here are my TOP PICKS for Spring 2017 from L&G plus details for every look and why I chose it! NOTE: A LOT OF THESE ITEMS ARE NOW ON SALE AND WILL BE LINKED BELOW FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE 😉

* * * * * * *

PICK 1

If you walked into L&G, you would never think they have jumpsuits but if you take a look back at my earlier stuff with them, you’ll see I always choose the most unique jumpsuits and rompers out there! And who would have ever known because they pride themselves on being more of a casual, lifestyle, weekender brand but this just gives me an even deeper love for them.

Check out this gorgeous, sheen and totally bad {in a good way} jumpsuit! You can tell here I am 100% feeling myself and loving the way it falls on my body. I was so excited to wear it to Raymond and I’s bf’s upcoming wedding soiree. I pranced all around that store in it as my first pick! It’s so sophisticated yet can be worn casual with a pair of sneakers as well 😉 I also love enjoy that we get to take a break from the traditional Spring color scheme and add some pastels over a deeper, luscious hunter green base.

Literally, a fave and don’t even get me started on how it’s an off-the-shoulder…I don’t need to say another word about it other than the words GET.IT.HERE and it’s under $100!! WOOT WOOT! Not sure how long so get it quick! 😉

Shop my Jumpsuit HERE

* * * * * * *

PICK 2

Like Fall, Spring is ALL ABOUT LAYERING. It’s chilly in the morning, warm in the afternoon then it drops back down to the 50s/60s. That hot and cold craziness sparked this next triple threat pick: DRESS, WHITE SWEATER & GREY SWEATER | I could live in this ensemble and paired with the sneakers gave it an even more comfy, cozy style. This is a brunch, weekend away, kids soccer game, movies with babes, mall walking, window shopping outfit that is extremely versatile. As a stylist, I always get the question: What do I wear on the weekends?? This is a great example:

Shop this look HERE , HERE, HERE and get these adorable tennies, HERE

* * * * *

PICK 3

Does a utility jacket EVER go out of style, I think not! This jacket provides the perfect warmth, all year ’round and just the right amount of chic to make any outfit look cool! I love the zippers and strings which makes it more “utility” like. Not to mention, because it’s L&G, it’s buttery soft per usual 😉

Now to these jeans…I know, I know, 10 years ago, these would have been considered “mom jeans” but hey, the mom jeans are in, ladies! Add a high-waisted detail to them and BAM, this girl felt herself in these jeans and they added a feminine touch to the whole outfit! SO effortless! TIP: Pair them with your favorite sandals {heel or no heel} or tennis shoes to make these more casual!

PICK 4

This L&G Spring pick was a no brainer. This top allowed for the perfect scream for Spring with the pops of light blue and orange and felt luscious on!

Baby from Dirty Dancing much? I literally felt like her walking around with this adorable outfit on. This top is super breathable and so are these chambray shorts-SHEER comfort and so Springy! Talk about the perfect beach OOTD!
