This time of year can be tricky when you are trying to get dressed…especially if you live in Dallas. One day it is 90 degrees and the next it is 70. While I am not trying to complain about the temperature AT ALL, I am going to let you in on the little wardrobe struggle that I always have this time of year.
Since technically it is fall but temperatures are more like spring deciding on what you are going to wear can sometimes be difficult. This time of year I always rely on one of my favorite things in my closet, skirts. The skirt is the easiest way to transition & look more seasonally appropriate while not getting too hot on those ‘fall’ days.
I snagged this chevron skirt a few weeks ago when I needed an outfit to host the CUSP by Neiman Marcus Fall Trends event. I needed to look fall and on trend but I didn’t want to show up in a sweater (it’s too hot!). I thought this chevron skirt would be a great piece to wear now (flats, boots, heels) and when it cools down bit pair it with a sweater, tights or even add a vest! Needless to say, I am on board with skirts (one of my favorite things) so this chevron skirt is on major rotation in my wardrobe!
T.G.I.F. Happy Friday! I cannot tell you how excited I am that it is FINALLY Friday. This week has been one of the longer weeks I have had in a long time. Lots of work projects & so many e-mails but thankfully the weekend gets to start a little early since this afternoon (Friday) I am headed to Charleston, South Carolina for the very first time to see the city with some of my favorite babes.
I love exploring new cities and Charleston has been on my list for quite some time. The weekend in jam-packed with so many fun things. Tonight we are having a progressive dinner on Upper King Street, tomorrow (Saturday) we have an early wake-up call (wish me luck) and get to go on a private walking tour of Charleston! I cannot wait to see all of the charm in person and of course walk those cobblestone streets! We will do a little shopping in the afternoon and then Saturday night will begin with a Rickshaw pick-up, cocktails and then we head downtown for dinner! Sunday there is a little brunch by the pool that I know will be so much fun.
Make sure to follow me on Instagram (@DallasWardrobe) for many snaps from my very first time in Charleston! Oh, and if you have any favorite spots (restaurants, shops, etc) please leave a comment as I will try and check them out! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! xx

While in New York last month for Fashion Week, I popped into the Kate Spade Madison Avenue store for the first time. While going through floor after floor of Kate Spade dreaminess I eventually made it to the top.
After passing through the glassware (umm, amazing) I went through two big double doors only to find the store manager waiting with a glass of water for me in the most perfectly decorated Kate Spade suite (leopard couch and all), overlooking Madison Avenue and a rack (yes an entire rack) of dresses with shoes to match in my size. I would be lying if I said I didn’t have to pinch myself because this was just oh so perfect.
After going through quite a handful of perfect pieces, I came across this Kate Spade pink & rose watercolor dress. I am not sure if it pink & rose watercolor print or the skinny belt complete with a bow but I knew this dress was the one I wanted to go home with.
Pink, although bright, cheerful and often associated with spring & summer is actually such a great color to wear throughout the fall when it is on the warmer side. The lady-like print combined with the sophisticated shape and warm tones makes this dress perfect to wear from everything to a bridal shower, luncheon, cocktail party or a wedding. With the combination of the blush and rose this Kate Spade watercolor coby dress from their Madison Collection is my go-to dress this fall and then into spring and summer.
