Black Moto Jacket + Skinny Jeans

Black Moto Jacket + Skinny Jeans

Howdy and happy Tuesday! I didn’t have time to check in with everyone yesterday but I hope you are ok from the tornado activity on Sunday night. In 27 years of living in our home, that was the first time we had to go to the crawl space underneath out house. We grabbed Sparky, Max and Ruby Lou and hunkered down with a flashlight and our iPhones while the sirens were going off non-stop. Thankfully, everything was ok but I know lots of people sustained damage and lost power. This truly brings meaning to the saying “If you live in Texas, wait 5 minutes and the weather will change”.  Moving on… let’s talk about this black moto jacket and skinny jean combo.

The Resolution to Radiant Skin – SkinTē

The Resolution to Radiant Skin – SkinTē

SkinTē recently reached out to me to see if I would try their sparkling tea drinks with collagen. When I heard they refer to it as “liquid radiance,” it was a no brainer for me. The time has come when we can now drink our skincare, ladies! It’s already been highly reviewed by Goop, Allure and the Wall Street Journal, so I had to get on board and see what the hype is all about. Right now you can only shop it on their website here. But I’m already loving this refreshing drink that has given the resolution to radiant skin. I think you will love it too.

Teal | Fall Color Trends

Teal | Fall Color Trends

This dark teal color is one of fall’s biggest color trends! It’s the perfect mix of blue and green. I love this teal dress because it reminds me of Downton Abbey style. Actually, I recently saw the new Downtown Abbey movie and LOVED it. You can get tickets to see it here. I thought about wearing this to the premiere, but instead opted for something more casual. But this ruffle-trimmed dress with puff sleeves, a high neck, empire waist, back tie, fluttery hem and gorgeous deep tone make it the best dress to highlight the fall color trend of teal!

I learned so much that I have to share!
