Quay Australia Sunnies

Tank Top: Express (On sale - only $8), Jacket: (Dillard's - Similar), Jeans: Old (Vigoss - Similar), Sunglasses: Quay - China Doll), Shoes: Nike - Similar Lipstick: MAC - Candy Yum Yum

My Quay Australia sunglasses came in and I am 100% obsessed with them. I first came across Quay on Instagram, and LOVED so many of them, especially the price. Most of them range from $50-$70, and the quality is great! I'm definitely going to order some more. They have such a variety, and so many fun styles. 
I hope you're enjoying these couple of days of warmer weather before we freeze later in the week! 
Also, just in case you eat your weight in turkey and pecan pies this weekend, you should try the shakes from LifeSource Nutrition in Monahans (next week when all our diets start ;)) if you haven't already. They're SO good, and make me feel a little less guilty replacing a meal or two with them. My favorites are Banana Nut Bread and Peanut Butter Cup. The owners are also the sweetest. 
But until next week, let's enjoy all the Thanksgiving goodies! ;)
P.S. Excuse the language on the tank! ;)

Meet Tyce!

Faux Fur Vest: Thalia Sodi - Macy's, Top: Old (Similar here - Macy's), Leggings: H&M, Booties: Thalia Sodi - Macy's, Bracelet: Thalia Sodi - Macy's, Tyce's Jacket: His grandma bought it for him, but there's a similar one here

Let me introduce you to our boxer, Tyce, but we like to call him Tyceroni (comes from "rice-a-roni" lol). We've had him since he was about 6 weeks old, and he has grown up to have SO much personality. He can't stand being outside for more than 30 minutes, and he loves going on car rides. His grandma bought him a new jacket yesterday, so he wanted to show it off to his pup friends on my blog!

My aunt also surprised me with a few pieces from the Thalia Sodi Collection, which I absolutely loved. These cheetah booties will make any outfit fun. I also love the chain detail on the faux fur vest. Thalia is a Latin pop artist that was one of my favorites when I was little, and right now, if you post a picture wearing clothing from her collection with the hashtag #MyThaliaSodiLook on Instagram, you have a chance at winning a $1000 gift card from Macy's and possibly get your pictured reposted on her page. I thought it was worth a shot! :) 

I hope you've been having an incredible week, and that the upcoming weekend is even better! 

P.S. I don't recommend taking your dog for a walk in high heeled cheetah booties. OUCH!

Must Have Booties

Poncho: Nasty Gal, Leggings: Express (Buy 1 pair, get 2nd for $19.90), Booties: ASOS (Only $54!), Bag: Tory Burch - This one's smaller

 Forgive the frizzy hair! We took these about 5 minute before it started pouring rain. I just had to do a blog post about these chunky booties though. They just came in and I loved them as much as I thought I would..and only $54! My color block poncho is also one of my faves. I bought it last year, but I linked an almost identical one above. I love wearing ponchos because I feel like I'm walking around with a big blanket all day long. I especially love wearing them when we go to the movies because I'm always freezing in there. 

In other news: Kalep is FINALLY back after what seems like forever (even if it was only a week lol).  We hadn't been apart that long since my days at TTU, so it seemed longer than it actually was.

Have a happy Monday, my friends! :)

Flannel & Flare

Top: Francesca's Collections, Jeans: Express, Hat: Francesca's Collections (Similar here), Booties: Jessica Simpson (Similar here - These are the exact shoe, just in a lighter taupe color rather than cognac), Clutch: Michael Kors - old (Similar here)
Given that I'm more on the short side, I'm all about anything that can help a girl out in the height department, or at least give the illusion. These flare jeans do just that! They are also part of Express' BOGO sale going on right now, and you get $25 off every $100 you spend. If you have the app Ibotta, you also get $5 if you spend $75 at Express. You're welcome! :) This weekend, I also picked up this top and hat at Francesca's Collections. Anytime I come across a plaid top that has a little length, it finds a home in my closet. I sized up for a more loose fit, and it is SO comfortable and soft. I have an unusually large head and ears, so when I find a hat that is a good fit, it's a must have, even if Kalep thinks I look funny in them. What do boys know anyway? Speaking of Kalep, he left to the deer lease and the lake for a week. Tyce and I didn't fit in his suitcase, so we're missin' him like crazy!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Trés Chic

Sweater: Old - Forever 21 (Similar here), Button Front Skirt: Express, Over the knee boots: Old (Similar here - on SALE!), Hat: Nordstrom - BP. Cross body bag: Old (Similar Here), Earrings: Baublebar, Lipstick: Kat Von D - Vampira

Today was actually a bit chilly, so I was thrilled to pair this button front skirt with a sweater. The skirt provided the perfect balance because we all know even if it's chilly in the morning, it'll be H-O-T by noon here in Texas. Also H-O-T, over the knee boots! Now that it's starting to get chillier, I'm wearing taller boots more and more. Not to mention, they help give the illusion of longer legs. Being only 5'3" - I'm all over it!

P.S. November is a month FULL of birthdays, with mine being the first out of the way. Today, we celebrated my cousin Kehyla's birthday and I was so glad to share it with her, especially sharing the birthday cupcakes! :)

P.S.S. This lipstick is to die for. My friends always give me a hard time because for some reason my lipstick always ends up on my teeth instead of my lips. Not this one my friends, it is SO matte and dries onto your lips perfectly, and I couldn't love the color anymore. It's part of Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks line.

...And More Suede

Dress: Milk & Honey Boutique - in store (Similar here - Forever 21, also available in a V-neck maroon shade), Booties: Jessica Simpson - old (Similar here - Nordstrom - Vince Camuto), Bag: Louis Vuitton, Necklace: Baublebar

Just in case, your closet is needing more suede, here's a suede dress I also purchased at Milk and Honey and absolutely loved! I did find a cheaper option at Forever 21, which I linked above and also at Target for a fraction of the price. I've also paired this dress with over the knee boots on colder days. Also making an appearance in today's blog post - my birthday gift! I've had my eye on this Louis for a while, and could not have been more excited unwrapping it yesterday at birthday dinner. Most importantly, I spent the day with those I love most, so here's to year 24!

Suede, Schuede

Top: Zara (old, similar here), Skirt: Milk & Honey - In Store (similar here), Booties: Chinese Laundry - Last year's (similar here), Bag: Tory Burch Tote, Earrings: BaubleBar

Sooo I've really been obsessed with anything suede this Fall, especially these button front skirts. I own a few in different colors. They're perfect for Texas' crazy way of transitioning into Fall, and so easy to wear. Every time I make a trip to Dallas, I make sure to stop by Milk  & Honey Boutique because their clothes never disappoints. I bought this skirt in store, but unfortunately, it isn't available online. I linked a similar one above!

P.S. Don't mind the crazy hair!

XO, Gladys
