Preppy cool


I always love a good preppy look. I'd been looking for a plaid blazer for quite some time, and I stumbled upon this one at Target in the Sale section, last one my size! My favorite part is the reversible collar, which I'm not sure if it's really reversible, but who cares, it's yellow and the contrast is awesome!!

Siempre me ha encantado el look escolar "preppy". Había estado en busca de una chaqueta de cuadros hace un tiempo, y encontré esta de casualidad en Target en la sección de especiales, la última en mi talla! Mi parte favorita es el cuello reversible, el cual no estoy segura si se supone que sea reversible, pero qué importa, es amarillo y el contraste está brutal!!

Rainy daze



San Antonio has the craziest weather I've ever experienced. In the Fall, the temperature can be 80° for a week, and the next it suddenly drops to 30°. This week we're having a cold front so it's all cold and rainy. At least, during the day it hasn't been so bad. I did have to layer my outfits though.

San Antonio tiene el clima mas loco que había vivido. En el otoño, la temperatura puede estar a 80° una semana y la próxima baja a 30°. Esta semana hemos tenido un frente frío y ha estado frío y lluvioso. Por lo menos durante el día no está tan malo. Aún así hay que ponerse varias capas de ropa.

Mile High Boot Club


The Devil wears Prada (2006)
Ever since we saw Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway) go from ugly duckling to a Chanel clad Swan in the Devil wears Prada, I couldn't get these thigh high boots out of my mind. It was absolutely mind boggling for me to see these boots and not think "Pretty Woman" patent leather street walker boots. This look was so stylish, so sleek and preppy with an edge. As this trend makes it's way back into Winter 2013, I've realized that even a non-celebrity, regular ole' gal like me can rock this style, so as long as it's done tastefully (hold the Miley Cyrus jokes).

Take me back to Tennesee



It seems like forever since my last post! I've definitely been out for a while, traveling for work and all, but I'm back. Now that I've been able to enjoy the full Autumn in the heart of the Tennessee mountains I can say that I've truly enjoyed the season.The scenery is absolutely breathtaking with mountains covered in gold and red leaved trees far as the eye can see. For weeks I worked extremely hard and I really needed to take a moment and enjoy the beauty that nature has to offer. It was a lovely experience!
