So in case you haven’t noticed, tassels are really on trend for the spring and summer! Although in Dallas, both of those seasons kind of run together because it’s already in the 80s everyday, but nonetheless tassels are popular for the foreseeable future! I’m a style blogger who prefers classic styles to trendy fashions, however even I can get on board with the tassel trend.
One thing I always like to keep in mind when shopping for trendy items is the price and how much use I’ll get out of it. Seeing as how tassels may not be in style next year, I’m keeping my “tassel shopping budget” low and dropping into stores like Forever21 and Target to find a few seasonal favorites! Everything you see here is under $50!
My most recent find is that adorable pink tassel bikini I featured above! Seriously, oh my goodness it’s adorable. The bottoms have tassels the tie on the hips and the top has tassels that tie in the back. The best part is, I found it on clearance too! Browse through some of the links above and leave me a comment with your favorite tasseled item!

Happy Friday! I’m so glad it’s the weekend! I started my weekend a little early with a fun fashion show hosted by Bevello in Dallas! Bevello’s spring fashion show was full of adorable designs highlighting the desert style and Cuban street styles that are trending right now. My absolute favorite design was this darling palm leaf dress pictured above! Keep scrolling for more eye-catching spring styles!
This fashion show was so cute and I loved the designers and different styles that were showcased! The models were lovely and did such a good job of giving personality to their clothing. As a Dallas fashion blogger, I’m always looking out for new designers to love and share with you, and I found a new one that I’m sharing below!
I had to share a photo of these gorgeous purses that were on display at Bevello! They’re by London designer Katie Loxton and were only $50. The colors were so beautiful and easily styled with almost everything in your closet.
After the fashion show, they had a delicious little spread of wine, cheese, fruit, nuts, and tiny desserts which were so fun to snack on while everyone did a little shopping. Bevello was kind enough to offer 20% off their store as part of their spring fashion show. Needless to say, everyone snatched up their favorite designs as quickly as they could!
Special thanks to Bevello in Dallas for inviting me to their lovely event! Be sure to check out their store in Snider Plaza if you’re local or go to their website here to take a peak!
Happy Friday gals! September has finally started and I’m so excited! I did a little decorating around the apartment today, nothing too crazy yet though. I’m waiting until it’s a little cooler here in Dallas, which might never happen. Walking through the aisles of Michael’s and Target, I’m getting ideas for the season but I feel like no matter what I do my place will never look put-together and holiday ready. Does anyone else ever feel like that? Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself here though. After all, summer is still technically here, right? And I have the perfect little Sunday brunch dress to share with you!
Isn’t this scalloped dress adorable? I love how lightweight it is and how I can just throw it on and look really cute! I wore it to my friend’s bridal shower and got several compliments (that’s how I know whether an outfit’s good or not). The best part is that the dress comes in black too! Having color in my wardrobe is important to me so I chose the blue, but for a basic dress to wear to work or brunch, I might opt for the black. Did I mention this dress is $13.99?! Link here!
For this outfit, I paired my blue SheIn dress with these bronze Jack Rogers sandals, my Marley Lilly scalloped clutch, and my favorite Kate Spade necklace. Styling a preppy outfit isn’t difficult when you have a scalloped hemline as the basic element. I’ll always remember the first time I had ever heard of a scalloped hemline. I sincerely thought designers were putting scallop (the seafood) imagery on the hems of dresses and was thoroughly appalled at the thought. Thank the Lord I actually googled it or I might never have found something new to obsess over!
Enjoy the last of the summer brunches for the season! Take in the summer breezes and tropical mimosas while you have them. Before we know it, we’ll be wishing for the sunshine to bronze our skin again!

It’s Fri-yay! After a long week of job interviews and running errands, I’m so ready for a Friday night. Not that I do much else during the week, but the job hunt really can drain the energy right out of you. Dallas has also been under heavy cloud cover for the last week and not only did it bring the rain, but it also brought gloominess with it. Along with the sunshine went my good mood! However, the air has been hinting at cooler temperatures (read: no more 3-digit heat) and my mind has gone right to fall!
Here in Dallas, I’ve been told that it doesn’t really cool down until November. Perfect. There goes my blanket scarves, quilted vests, and riding boots. How basic, right? I’m realizing very quickly that the typical clothing I wore during autumn back in my home state, won’t be enjoyed here until later this year. Even so, blanket scarves aren’t really needed anywhere until October. So let’s talk about clothes that work in the awkward transition months between the heat of summer and the chill of fall!
Dress for the Season and the Temperature
My favorite tops for fall are chambray and gingham long sleeves. Texas isn’t the place for long sleeves and pants until winter (seriously). Instead, choose one or the other. Pair long sleeves with shorts or short sleeves with pants. Comfort is everything to me and I’m not going to be comfy if I’m sweating to death.
Since fall is all about rich oranges, reds, and deep blues, buy t-shirts, shorts, and accessories in traditional fall colors. For example, the adorable red skirt pictured above is the perfect fall piece that fits into that unpredictable seasonal transition. It looks like fall and feels like summer! Another example of fall colors working in summer pieces are the multi-colored shorts.
Finally, utilize accessories! It may be 80 degrees in the middle of September but wear those tan booties you love so much. That warm scarf you can’t wear yet? Tie it to the handles on your bag for a fall statement piece. Check out the other great transition pieces I linked for you below!//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/#/?options=%7B%22widgetId%22%3A%2257b67ba361d1dd5cd5a4563f%22%2C%22version%22%3A1%2C%22pid%22%3A%22uid3025-28872695-82%22%2C%22size%22%3A200%2C%22columns%22%3A3%2C%22rows%22%3A1%2C%22url%22%3A%22https%3A%2F%2Fapi.shopstyle.com%2Fapi%2Fv2%22%2C%22iframeHeight%22%3A275%2C%22iframeWidth%22%3A705%7D-Liz
Happy hump day everyone! The first two days to every week are the hardest but once Wednesday hits- boom! It gets just a little bit better. Weekend plans start to form and all of the sudden that coffee isn’t having the same effect that it was before. My latte of choice is always skinny vanilla with a dash of cinnamon. By the end of the week, black coffee looks very tempting instead!
I wanted to share with you my favorite new beach bag before the summer is over! I found this adorable bag at a boutique in Dallas called Riff Raff. The beach bag is easy to clean and has a convenient little pocket inside for things like your phone and keys! Best of all, this sparkly bag was only $18!
Relaxing by the pool at the end of every day has become my favorite activity recently. Life is stressful and sometimes working out in the gym doesn’t calm me down like I want it to. Sitting poolside with some flavored water and a good book seems to do the trick though. Plus, did you see my adorable beach towel in the first picture? It’s the 1972 New Yorker magazine cover! That magazine cover is iconic and I was so excited to find this beach towel for $12 at TJ Maxx!
Finally, let’s talk about this beach cover up! I wore it in a post about my trip down to Austin a month ago but I’m still obsessed with it (see post here)! It was around $20 and works really well if you have somewhere to go after your day in the water. Shocking, it goes great with my pretty beach bag too! Check out Riff Raff for more fun things!
