| My Jeans: here & similar here | Pull over sweater: here or here | 
| My favorite bralettes: here & here |
Do these jeans look familiar? Are they the same jeans as the pair in my last post? Only in black... 
I TOLD YOU I LOVED THEM! 
The fit is perfection and they're so comfortable to wear. 
Anyway, can we talk about how I'm obsessing over the color black lately, specifically all black outfits. Maybe it's because Halloween is right around the corner or maybe it's because black is the most flattering color that ever existed? Regardless, I'm loving it. 
I do like to break up my mono-colored outfits with a pop of color in my shoes or handbag. I'm sure y'all have noticed that I can't stop rockin' this one! It is the most versatile bag i've ever owned, it literally matches everything. 
Lastly, let's talk about this back detail? Ugh, I love it. I pair this sweater with a strappy bralette or a tank top, both options are cute. 

Are you getting excited for Halloween? Because...I'M SO excited! I can't wait to share our costumes. This is the first year Bravenec & I are doing a "couples costume" and I'm totally excited about it.

  • Disclosure - Caracal - I love this entire album, but my favorites off the album are Magnets, Omen, and Superego. The effortless talent of the Disclosure brothers is unreal.
  • Justin Bieber - Sorry - I cannot wait for JB to release his new album. I'm going to be all up on it! I also think I might have to see him on tour, please stop judging me. I'm a Belieber!
  • Adele - Hello - She's back, slaying with her angelic voice and fleeky contour. All the feels!
  • Angus & Julia Stone - Bella - Again, the feels.
  • Vallis Alps - Young
  • Leon Bridges - Coming Home - This album is Ah-MAZE-ing. My favorites on the album are Coming Home & Better Man.
  • City and Colour - Hello, I'm In Delaware - An oldie, but a goodie.


  • I hope y'all are having the best Tuesday!
    I know this is a random post for GMB but I'm hoping you like it! Some of the music above is new, some is old. I just wanted to share what's been on repeat on my Spotify lately. If you're loving anything lately, share share share!

    Denim | Black Swing Top | Hat 

    I've been on the hunt for a pair of colored denim for a hot minute and I'm so happy I found these! Initially I was a little bit hesitant to order these, because of the color description online. However, something told me I needed these and worst case scenario- I'd just return them. Y'all, I will never return these, they're taupe-y perfection. They're not beige enough to be khaki, yet not grey enough either...They are the perfect mix! I hate to wear white after labor day, so having these fills that void.

    Now, can we talk about my Sunday HEART BREAK? I mean COME ON WALKING DEAD! Why must you constantly rip out my heart and tear it to pieces? I cried, screamed, and held TC's hand so hard he may have permanent nerve damage. Walking Dead, a girl can only take so much! 

    Lastly, I'm getting so excited for Halloween! My costume this year might be my new all time favorite, I can not wait! I decorated some cute pumpkins last week and I've been baking tons of fall inspired cookies... I really love this time of year! 

    I hope y'all are having a great start to your week! 
    Big Ol' Monday (get me to Sunday) hugs.

    TC is currently in Boston and it actually looks & feels like autumn there. 
    Get it together TEXAS, we're halfway through October and the afternoon temps are still in the 90's! 
    I've had this plaid number hanging in my closet for 2 months and I finally got tired of looking at it, I had to wear it! I also know that faux fur vests are big right now, so I'll link a couple for y'all. 
    I know y'all are tired of hearing how busy I am lately so I have good news...
    TC and I are not doing one.single.thing this weekend. We may leave the house for breakfast, but that's where we draw the line. Sometimes you just need a weekend off, free of any obligations or errands. I swear my immune system is protesting viciously and my brain is begging for me to de-stress. Do any of you have any tips for shutting it all off and taking a mental holiday? What works for y'all? Let me know!

    | Red Shift Dress: here or here | Cover that messy hair Floppy Hat |
    Reversible spotted tote, I got on the waitlist and snatched it up as soon as they restocked! | 

    I was under the impression that after the wedding, life would slow down. . .
    It hasn't.
    I'm the busiest I've ever been in my entire life. 
    I'm a go-go-go speed racer lately! I swear my body, brain, and immune system are so over me. 

    Some weekends I need something super easy to throw on and go! This little red dress has come in handy a lot recently. I have worn it by itself, with a cardigan, obviously with this jean jacket, and even with a suede jacket! I wish I would've gotten a picture of it with the suede jacket, it was a beautiful match- if I do say so myself! If you haven't already noticed, floppy hats are my jam lately. They cover up messy-i'm too busy to style my hair-hair, and this busy bee can appreciate that! 

    Before I go, I wanted to tell y'all that I will be doing a "What I Wore to ACL" post this week. I had a couple of questions about different items from my snaps & instagrams, so you know that means I'll do a round up! I had to wait to post, because we went to ACL again this weekend (Sunday only)!

    | Mac Powder Blush://Peaches | Nume Curling Wand://Titan 3 (Mine is black) |
    | Mac Lipstick://Half N Half | Baby Skin:// Primer | Redken:// Diamond Oil |
    | Nike:// Roshe Run | Donut Shop:// K Cups |

    1. Where do I even begin? I'm sooo late to the "New Girl" Party, but I can't stop-won't-stop binge watching this show. I'm at the end of season 2 and it's so good! It's an easy watch that will keep you laughing. 
    2. Mac Blush in Peaches: I'll admit, it's a little late in the season to be wearing this.. but I can't stop! It's the perfect flush of peachy warm color to your cheeks and it lasts ALL DAY LONG! I know a lot of people hate to splurge on make up, but MAC blushes will last you YEARS. They're long lasting and so pigmented. Well worth the $17 bucks, trust me girl! 
    3. Nume Titan 3 Curling wand:  I've had this wand for awhile now, but I'm a creature of habit! It's so easy to wave-out my hair with my straightener so I usually grab it. However, I recently started using this wand again and I'm in love! I find my curls last longer and look better when I use this wand! Bonus, this wand heats up in seconds, not kidding! The only problem I have with it is the power button. It's in a weird spot and I always accidentally hit it as I'm curling and turn the wand off. 
    4. Mac Half N Half: The best "my lips but better shade". It's a natural soft nudey-pink color that adds a little bit of oomph to your lips. It's a great transition color and would work for any season! 
    5. Maybelline Baby Skin Primer: This primer is an exact dupe for Benefits Porefessional. I repeat, an exact dupe. This bad boy costs about $6 bucks compared to Benefits $31 primer. The formulation and staying power are the exact same. Save yo' money girl and grab this next time you're at the store! 
    6. Redken Diamond Oil: I have had this product for forever and I can't believe i've never talked about it! It makes your hair so soft and it smells so good! Be warned, a little goes a LONG way. Focus this product on your ends only! 
    7. I have been LIVING in these shoes! Seriously, I'm wearing them right now as I write this post. They're so comfortable! I have the smallest feet ever (in running shoes I'm a KIDS 4Y)! Crazy I know, but Roshe Runs come in every size! If you're in the market for a good everyday comfy shoe- do yourself a favor and grab these!! 
    8. Last but not least, K-Cup donut shop coffee. I love every flavor but I'm especially loving the nutty-caramel flavor right now! So good! It's a little hard to find, but you can usually find it at target!

    Cardigan, the fit is roomy. I'm wearing a small | My favorite jeans | Studded Fedora | 
    | My statement necklace (I can't stop wearing it) here | 
    | My booties are old, identical here |

    I'm obsessed with this entire look. I want to wear this outfit everyday until someone tells me to change! It's so comfortable, effortless, cute.. it's everything good. I know this cardigan is a statement piece on its own, but it's still versatile. You could pair it with a grey tunic or a nude sweater. I also love that this cardigan almost has a "poncho" vibe. If you don't know, I'm obsessed with ponchos and they're "in" right now... so this cardigan is a win for me! I've been trying to post more affordable, yet durable items on the blog and this entire look fits the bill. 
    I hope y'all are having a wonderful week!

    Happy Tuesday, Babes! 
    I had a blast this weekend at ACL! The weather was perfect and all the artists were AMAZING. I was blown away by this years line-up and I can't wait for next year! 
    We have tickets for next Sunday, specifically to see Florence & The Machine. She is one of my all time favorites and if you haven't listened to her new album, get on it! 
    However, I'm still busier than ever and this week is no exception. 
    Let's just get on into the post, shall we? 

    I have been obsessed with layering and knotting my oversized sweaters (and my hair). I like knotting sweaters when I'm layering, because it chinches in your waistline and makes the outfit look more put together. This particular sweater is perfect for this time of year because it's quarter sleeve length and thin enough to throw over anything! I have paired this sweater with maxi dresses, over lace tanks, and even blouses! 
    Big Tuesday Love & Hugs,
