Capris and Cashmere

Gilt Inhabit NY Cardi

There’s something about a woman in a cardigan… said no one ever!! I have to laugh because cardigans may be the most unsexy thing to me. This did not stop me from going on a gilt shopping spree and loading up on five. Yes, five!! Preparing for a long Texas winter I suppose.

Today I paired my Inhabit New York cashmere cardi, with a pair of bold blue capris and matching T-strap stilettos.

Perfect Travel Dress

Capella Pedregal Cabo

Far, far away, in a land where the margaritas flow like water and sun kissed skin is your best accessory, lies Capella Pedregal. This resort nestled in the mountains of Cabo San Lucas is absolutely heavenly from its majestic tunneled entrance to its snow room featured spa. Such a beautiful place deserved a beautiful dress and this ombre silk number by Sofia Collection did just the trick!

I’m Baaack

Big Play Scoring

Happy Friday! Over the past month I have been a busy little styling bee. Bzzzz… With all the great new styling opportunities unfortunately my blog posts, or lack thereof have suffered the consequences. Just in time for fashion week and the first week of football season I’m baaack!! First and foremost, I reveal my very first commercial styling job and it’s a national commercial at that!! Woo hoo:) It was a lot of work and about half of the scenes and outfits didn’t even make the official commercial but what a experience.

The Perfect White Summer Bikini

White Bikini

The Fourth of July is right around the corner.  When I think of the Fourth of July a few things come to mind like…. family, BBQ, parades, magical displays of fireworks that light up the nights sky and the perfect white swimmie!

The perfect white swimsuit can be hard to find.  You don’t want something too see through, you don’t want it too skimpy and adjustable straps are always a bonus.  After weeks of looking, I found this Tori Praver bikini Réard himself would be proud of and it’s jussst right!

Free Press Summer Fest Festival Fashion

Ready or not, here it comes, you can’t hide…Free Press Summer Fest is gonna find you, and make you rock out!  Most people I’ve talked to myself included are buzzing about Miss Lauryn Hill.  As a homage to the turban wearing song bird I made a colorful scarf head wrap to give a little color to today’s black and white look.

Black and white is one of the hot trends of summer 2014 but it never hurts to add a little P.O.C.  I know not everyone has a turban laying around so I found a really easy tutorial for you.  It’s how I made mine today:) To give my feminine white cotton dress a bit of a rock n roll edge I added a black fringe boot . I think the boots give the outfit a bit of a Kate Moss boho/rocker vibe. To complete my festival look I layered on the metal accessories!

FashionBillie Bit: Fashion is about getting creative.  This is not the time of year to find suede fringe boots so I made my own!  These are actually a old pair of over the knee boots that I cuffed at the knee and cut fringe onto.  Voilà!

I Have Nothing To Wear

Nothing To Wear

Isn’t this so true?  I know some people who have the ability to pick their outfits out each night for the following day.  To me this is like predicting the future and I do not own a crystal ball.  My style is dictated each morning by exactly how I feel.  This morning I was feeling a little rock-n-roll!

The Jacket

camel wool coat

The perfect jacket, similar to the perfect man, is hard to come by.  You need one that’s not to tight yet hugs you in all of the right places.  One that is complementary to an array of outfits.  And one that breaks the wind from chilling your bones without weighing you down in fabric.  Well ladies, I have found your man…. I mean coat!

This simple Camel Wrap Coat by Clique Couture  adds luxury to any outfit.  I have never received as many complements from men and women alike as I have with this coat.  I especially love the cocoon like lapel that transitions into a hood.

You can find it for a steal on Rue LaLa.  It’s currently unavailable but I had to share.  So that you don’t miss your chance the next time it becomes available, click the link below to sign up for Rue LaLa.
