I’d like to start off by welcoming you to my very first blog post EVER! I am excited to share my love of fashion, beauty and a few family tidbits. I graduated from Texas A&M in 2004 and began teaching elementary school until 2011. I married my college sweetheart in 2006 and we now have two small children Pierce and Paige, a dog and a cat. They are the light of my life and we enjoy traveling together and spending time with family and friends.
Navigating away from diapers, cooking and dancing to The Wiggles has lead me into the world of WordPress for bloggers. I love learning new things and made a vow to myself that I would try my hardest to not let technology get the best of me. A few nights I was beat down but got back up and YouTubed, Googled, and phoned a friend for help! So here I am with my very first post. I am excited to launch this new journey in my life and I hope my page inspires you. After all, you only get one chance to make that first impression!
As for fashion, fall is right around the corner for us in Texas and in full swing for others. So let’s talk about some major Leopard Dress Love…When I found this leopard dress at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale it was love at first sight! It is so comfortable, a great length and I can easily change up the look. This dress is so cute with heels, flats, a cardigan, moto jacket or statement necklace. I can’t wait to pair it with my lace up flats and a black leather moto jacket. Here I dressed it up with this metal belt (model B)and a pair of classic black pumps. I hope you can enjoy a little leopard dress love in your wardrobe this fall!
