Dallas’ own luxury retailer, Forty Five Ten and their newly appointed Creative & Fashion Director, ( also my style idol) Taylor Tomasi Hill, seem to have something very exciting up their super stylish sleeves. Forty Five Ten’s sister store, Five & Ten is now under construction and the signage in the windows, “FFT TTH BRB” has me pretty excited. I cannot wait to see what the newly designed space will look like. It opens today so stay tuned!!!

Pixie Market always has great style steals, but this little embroidered mini is stop what you’re doing and buy me now- worthy! I’ve been lusting after one of these embroidered folk inspired dresses all summer and there is no way I can pass this one up considering it’s $85! It’s perfect for an end of the summer getaway or Labor Day pool party. This button up version would make a perfect cover up!
Whether it’s a vintage pair of 501’s, 505’s or the new and fabulous “Wedgie Fit”, Levi’s have the ability to flatter a girl’s frame- particularly her butt. Yes yes, all of these girls in the pictures are model skinny, but I am not and I can tell you they’re still ultra flattering on a “normal” bod.
Teen Vogue’s former Editor in Chief, Amy Astley, has taken over the reigns of Architectural Digest & her first issue- the style issue no less- brings us into the homes of some of fashion’s most influential names. There is Marc Jacobs’ art filled townhouse, Giovanna Battaglia’s surprisingly eclectic Swedish apartment and my most favorite- Amanda Brooks’ farmhouse in the Cotswolds.

Packing has become much more challenging now that I have to pack for a little monster as well as myself. I’ve got to be cutthroat with my choices. Luckily, we are in Sea Island where I can spend the majority of my day in a swimsuit and coverup so my bag has much more room for stuffed animals, diapers, books, pool floats…etc. Oh how times have changed!!
