Beautiful Fall Colors

Beautiful Fall Colors

Good morning!

I am feeling amazing after a great night sleep and an early morning rise! Daylight savings is a funny thing.

Today is a big day. I have several conferences and then will help out at the school this afternoon. Staying busy and interacting with my peers is a blessing. While I absolutely love being at home with my babies it is refreshing to get out and utilize my skills and mind in a different channel. I am so thankful for my parents who help me have these days. I can’t be 100 places at once and they certainly lighten the load.

I always like to dress for comfort when I am subbing. It makes for a more comfortable day. Today I pulled out a few faves of mine. You can always count on the classroom being cold so I pulled out my wine/pink plaid scarf. Don’t you just love those colors? They are vibrant and happy. This piece is great as it can serve as a wrap or scarf and can accommodate my look and the weather in and outside. Thank you!

I layered over a DR2 top and some Lysse leggings. If you have never worn these pants you should try them. They have a control top and hug the body and help slim. What girl doesn’t love that help? My leopard slides are everything. So chic and comfy. They material is a fur that is so soft. The pattern is bold in a delicate way. I know that sounds crazy, but the spots call attention to the shoe while not being too overbearing. They are small and fabulous.

Just wanted to say a quick hello and share my ootd! Hope you have a wonderful Monday! Talk to you soon!

Pickin’ Clothes

Pickin’ Clothes

The family went to East Texas this weekend for a little R&R. We love the wide open spaces and slow pace.

Lucky for us First Monday was taking place. This is 100 acres of vendors set up selling their products in the largest “flea market” in the country. There you go! We rounded up the kiddos and hit the pavement for a few hours. There were a lot of ups and downs, but we are happy to say we finished the day off with carnival rides and smiles. Thank goodness.

We went to Trade Days with two purposes.

1. Take the kids to see the live animals, specifically chickens. DONE!

2. Look for inspiration and items for our dance barn.

We did find some cool pieces, but did not buy this round. Our barn is definitely old and rustic. We are trying to determine how to best handle the floors. Right now we are on dirt so we have to take that into consideration when buying. Good news we know where to find what we need next month and can start buying and storing until the barn is complete.

If you have never gone to a flea market you should. There are thousands of people that come from all over. It is definitely something to see.

To tackle those 100 acres I needed something casual and comfortable. Also, Texas is being flighty with the weather so layers are an absolute must. Check out my go to look for a day of walking and pickin’!

Warm from Head to Toe

Warm from Head to Toe

Good morning!

Guess what?! The weather is turning and has me so excited. I am heading back to Dallas and get to wear my hat and layers. Yea!

Of course it is chilly in Colorado. In the 30s to be exact. I can’t tell you how wonderful that cool breeze and fresh air is. Such a great recharge for Chris and I. I’m glad we made the trip, but will be happy to be home to love on my babies. Thanks mom and dad for watching them!

When we touch down in Dallas it will be in the low 50s. Perfect weather for Fall. I know you aren’t supposed to wear whiter after Labor Day, but I have never been one to follow the rules. I am my own person and will dress how I feel and you should too! I busted out my furry white page boy hat in honor of the turning weather. I love this hat. It is warm, cute, and can be worn forward or backward. I ain’t scared, 😉

I kept the look casual with a great navy legging and long sleeved knit shirt. Layered with a beautiful brown cardigan by Hinge. You know I love my layers. I added two pashminas for warmth and color, olive green and brown! My loafers are super comfortable and work great with all colors.

I am set and ready to hit the airport. Dallas here we come!

Have a great Saturday! I will be in touch soon!

XO,
Vanessa

Howdy howdy! So glad you stopped by.

In my family the Dallas Cowboys are big news. Yes, we have had a rough few years, but there are no fair-weather fans here. The Boys are our team and we will always root for them. I still remember the back to back super bowl wins and cheering with my bestie, Carolina, in front of the tv. Hopefully, soon my kids will get to experience Cowboy mania like we did! Until then, we cheer for the boys and enjoy some good ‘ole football.

We went to the property this past weekend and watched the game from our barn. Yes, that is a barn equipped with a 16 foot bar, plenty of seating, and all the games you can imagine. I will introduce you all to the property formally soon.

To watch the game I brought out a great look from Target. I am a huge fan of Target. Before I would mostly purchase kids clothes, home goods, and swimsuits. This season is a whole new ball game. Pun intended. =) Their inventory is amazing and the clothing fits great. Yes, I am a partner of Target, but that doesn’t influence my opinion in any shape or form.

This cardigan is super cozy and is a mix of silver/gray. I am really in to layering and it was perfect for the cooler afternoon/night. I found a super comfortable legging that was navy. Navy is such a hot color right now and I love the richness of it. The leggings have a great texture and are thick without being too heavy. I pulled this look together with my bad a velvet booties. Aren’t they gorgeous!

This Texas girl is ready to root for her team, don’t you agree?! Who is your favorite team?

Until next time friends. Happy shopping!
