I Love Three Day Weekends

Hi Lovelies!

Happy Friday! I am so excited that it is labor day weekend! There’s nothing better than a 3 day weekend where the one thing on everybody’s mind is water! We’re planning on floating down the river down in San Marcos this weekend which I haven’t done in years, so I’m pretty pumped! Even in the water, it is always the right time to look cute:) This is what I wish I was wearing this labor day weekend:

Labor Day Weekend Fashion

And then there is what I probably will be wearing this labor day weekend….something I already own. Boo. I just need to remember, I have about 20 bathing suits and T shirts in my drawer and I do NOT need any more…. a day in the life of a shopaholic!
What will YOU be wearing this labor day?
Until next time…

One Outfit, Two Seasons

Hi Lovelies!

We are finally past hump day and one day closer to a 3 day weekend! Woohoo! This is going to be an exceptionally grand labor day weekend for me, as this year will be the first in 3 years that I have actually had it off of work! Oh, the joys of working in retail management…thank goodness for 8-5 jobs!

Now, on to today’s outfit! I bought this shirt back in the retail working days, when I bought everything just because I had a discount. I brought it home, I wore it once, and then it sat in green section of my closet for the next 6 months. Luckily, I was searching through my closet this past weekend, after buying the fabulous pink necklace you see below, and I decided that they would go so well together with some white skinny jeans and sandals! The bright pink color and white skinny jeans really helped to bring the deep teal into summer.

The second outfit came from my dilemma I spoke of earlier in the week: wearing white pants after labor day. I don’t have a problem with it, and in order to make EVERYONE else see that the rule is indeed stupid, I decided to show y’all just how to dress white denim for fall. So here you have it, summer fading in to fall:

I hope I have convinced at least one person out there this week that you CAN do white pants after labor day:)

Comfy In Aztec Print? Yes, Please!

Hi Lovelies!

I know I’ve already said it, but I don’t think I can tell you enough times just HOW pumped I am for fall fashion! I have been seeing these over-sized tribal sweaters circulating Pinterest for a few weeks now and I have decided that I NEED one! Now I just need to decide WHICH one I need? Anyone else see cute ones out there?!

Fall

I really like the idea of the big comfy sweater with thick leggings/pants and some boots. Talk about being comfortable at work! ๐Ÿ™‚ I might even throw on a colored tank under this one to give it a little pop of something bright. That makes two more items to add to my list of must haves this fall, layering tanks and cognac boots! And the list goes on ….I will be broke come Christmas, mark my words!

How will you wear a chunky over-sized sweater this fall?

Rules? They’re More Like Guidelines Anyways

Hi Lovelies!

The end of summer is drawing near, so I decided it is time to get my white pant posts in while I can! Although, I have to say, I’m not a strong believer of the no white pants past labor day rule. Especially in Texas, it’s more like a fashion guideline….for those people in the north who actually have fall and winter. Haha!

Pardon the frizzy, awkward mess that it my hair in these photos, it was extremely humid and actually looked like it was going to rain! (It didn’t.) That’s why my hair is actually blowing in some of the photos! What a nice change from the stagnant, hot weather we usually have in August.

I found this peplum top at Target (yes, I realize I have a problem) just before the Texas Style Council at the beginning of August. I wore it to the Lulu’s clothing swap and got a ton of compliments! I like how it is shorter in the front and longer in the back (mullet top!) And we all know how I feel about teal and coral…..

Well, there you go! Now, I need to think of some cute fall ways to style my white skinnies once labor day rolls past!

How would you bring white pants in to fall?

Plain and Simple: All Dressed Up

Hi Lovelies!

You might remember this dress from a few weeks ago here. In that post I dressed it very simply, with just a belt and a gold chain necklace. This time, I tried to dress it up a bit with my new favorite piece, my Target blazer. I found this blazer yesterday and I am in love. I have been looking for a cute one that fits correctly, but also doesn’t cost $80. Well, here you have it, $35 and just as cute as can be! I am beyond excited to wear this baby all fall/winter long, and I’m sure I will style it on here at least a million more times! You should definitely head on over to Target, they have several colors and even a plaid one and a polka dot one!

Balsamic-Mango Marinated Chicken

Hi Lovelies!

My parents bought Wes and I a grill as a belated wedding gift and brought it to us last weekend. We are SO excited about it! Needless to say, we have grilled our dinner every single night since we got it. Well, while I was browsing Pinterest the other day, I stumbled across this little gem! Balsamic-mango marinated chicken! Oh my goodness do mangoes and chicken go well together! It was so good that I just had to share it with you guys. Well here you go:

MangoChicken4

MangoChicken3

Balsamic-Mango Grilled Chicken

Ingredients:
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup 100% mango juice or mango nectar
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt & pepper
1 mango

Directions:

  1. Measure and pour mango juice, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper into a Ziploc baggie. Add chicken to baggie and zip closed, then move the chicken around within the baggie to make sure the marinade gets mixed well and that the chicken gets coated with the marinade. Place baggie in refrigerator for at least an hour, the longer the better.
  2. Heat up your grill and begin getting all of your side dishes together. We used mushrooms and asparagus with our chicken. Both were cooked in tinfoil on the grill with a little balsamic/olive oil and some seasonings.
  3. Once your grill is heated, remove the chicken from the marinade and place on the grill. How long you cook it will depend on how high your heat is and what type of grill you have. Make sure that your chicken is cooked thoroughly, as undercooked chicken can lead to some nasty diseases you don’t want!
  4. While the chicken is cooking I cut up the mango to serve on top. I will be honest, I have NO idea how to cut a mango. I have tried about 50 ways and none of them worked well. If you have any suggestions for cutting mangoes, please leave them in the comments below!
  5. Once your chicken is done being cooked, remove from the grill, place chopped mango on top and enjoy!

Hope y’all are getting a little bit of last minute grill time in as well before the summer is officially over!

Until next time…

A Little Bit Austin

Hi Lovelies!

You know, I was very self conscious about posting this outfit. It was hanging in my closet for a week and a half before I actually put it on and took the camera out. I think it was because of the tight fitting dress, I didn’t feel 100% comfortable showing it all off like that. Lol. Well, here’s to stepping out of my comfort zone! This outfit makes me feel very Austin, the chambray and boots definitely give it a little bit of a hipster vibe. It is also super comfy and I LOVE comfy. I got the dress at H&M for $10, which I just couldn’t pass up. I also got it in teal which I’m sure will show up later on:)
