Free People Tank

Fringe BootieTop: Free People (only $20!) Shorts: Hudson Shoes: Sam Edelman Necklace: Dogeared Sunglasses: Ray-Ban Watch: Arvo Wear

As much as I hate to admit it, it’s officially football season. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing I love more than a true fall day, cuddled up in a sweater and cheering on the horns, BUT, with football also comes stressful nights and the fear that B might actually have a heart attack one day.

When it comes to tailgating, I also struggle with the fact that it’s still 100 degrees here in Texas. As you can imagine, when I found this Free People tank, for only $20 I might add, I was elated. It’s the perfect color (which is super hard to find) AND it’s lightweight. But wait, it gets better! This tank comes in a ton of colors, so you too might be able to find the perfect one for your team too!

I Heart You

I’ll be honest, from far away this looks like just another regular ol’ black tank. But when you get closer, it’s got the most subtle little heart detailing. A fun, feminine touch that makes this the perfect outfit for a date night with your BFFs!

Happy Wednesday Y’all! Two sleeps ’til Friday!

Bow Dress

Bow Dress

 

Do you all remember this Kate Spade bow dress? Well, I’ve found an identical version for only $58 and just had to let you know! If you are anything like me, you can’t resist a good bow. Especially not when it’s under $60! This more affordable option also comes in several colors like white, black, pale blue, and red! Is it bad I want it in every single color?

dallas-style-blogger-love-you-mean-it-3488Dress: T by Alexander Wang (also comes in blue!) Shoes: Steve Madden (find more color and size options here!) Bag: Chanel Earrings: Kate Spade

This outfit encompasses two of my favorite things: a dress that makes you want to dance and a killer pair of shoes! If you are considering investing in a little black dress, this is the dress for you. It’s one that can take you anywhere and can transition throughout every season. I was wearing it in 100-degree heat but could already picture it this fall/winter with some booties and a leather jacket.

Now, on to the shoes. Do I really even need to say anything? Okay, I will. They are AMAZING, right? I will have you know they are under $100 and also come in tan. So you might as well save yourself some time and get them in both colors!

Happy Monday, Y’all!

Dress: Cupcakes and Cashmere Shoes: Ivanka Trump (no longer available, but you can get them in black!) Earrings: Kate Spade Clutch: Gigi NY

I’ve said it many, many times before, but one thing everyone should have in their closet is a little white dress. This one is from Cupcakes and Cashmere’s new line and I absolutely love it! I’ve only had it for a week (it arrived in my trunk!) and I am embarrassed to admit how many times I’ve already worn it. I have no doubt I will be wearing this lwd straight into fall. Simply add booties and an army jacket and you’re ready for a tailgate!

Slipper Club

Emoticon Slippers

 

Do you ever see something and think “This is me!”? Well, that is exactly how I felt about these Del Toro #WildWest slippers. What could represent me better than a cactus and a horse? Nothing, I tell you! It’s the perfect representation of a Kentucky gal living in the heart of Texas. Truth be told, I can actually relate to a lot of these slippers. #peaceofcake, #cleareyesfullhearts, and #indadoghouse are all calling my name.

Which pair is your favorite? Check out the full Del Toro collection here and let me know!

The heat is here to stay! If you live in Dallas you know it’s important to find pieces that are lightweight and airy to stay cool (and for me, calm & collected!!!). That’s why when I saw this Rebecca Taylor tulip print top I knew it was perfect for these scorching hot days we are currently experiencing. Plus, I love the extra special details like the ruffles and the asymmetric hem!

I also wanted to highlight these Splendid sandals while they are still available. They are super simple but go with everything! They are only $65 and definitely a pair I will wear on the reg the rest of summer!

Most of you know Trunk Club as the men’s styling service that sends personalized trunks of clothes to guys. Well, I’m super excited that the service has just announced that they are going to be expanding to women this fall!

Luckily for me, my sister, Katie, is a Stylist at their Dallas location and I was able to participate in the test of women’s trunks. Even for someone like me who loves to shop on my own, it was nice having someone else pick out items I might not have tried myself. Plus, it shows right up at your door step! Sounds too easy, right?

My favorite parts of the service have to be that I don’t have to pay for anything unless I decide to keep it and that I get to try everything on at home with my own shoes, jeans, etc. Looking for something in particular? No problem! Your trunk can be completely customized.

If you want to avoid the wait-list and try out a trunk now, email me (loveumeanitblog@gmail.com) and I’ll connect you with Katie!

Happy shopping!
