Cyber Monday

I hope everyone had an amazing holiday with their families, I know I did. We just spent the past week in California horseback riding, shopping, going to Disneyland, and exploring a bunch of different areas. Not to mention we ate our Thanksgiving dinner OUTSIDE in the 75 degree weather. It was perfect.

Now let's talk about Cyber Monday. I usually don't participate in Black Friday since it is so time consuming and exhausting, and I just have more fun shopping online anyways. So, here are the top picks on my Cyber Monday shopping list!

Capes & Tights

Busy weeks are ahead of us all, as the holidays get closer! But I managed to find the time to do an amazing photo-shoot in the park with Sarah Foss Photography

The weather here has dropped down into the 40s and 50s and is even colder at night so needless to say this shoot was a quick one! However, I must say I am more than happy to be opening a spot in my closet again for my collection of jackets and coats!

I love a good black and grey combination which is why you see me in my Sam Edelman boots again...I just can't leave them alone! This cape is made by Jolt that I purchased a few years ago at Nordstrom. I love the short sleeves and the plaid print, and although it is a boxier coat it is still very feminine. My necklace is from Stella & Dot, and the bag of course is a Michael Kors beauty.

Thank for reading! Also, a HUGE thank-you to Sarah Foss for taking these pictures for me! They are amazing and I can't wait to do more work with her.

I will be announcing my next giveaway this week so stay tuned!

love always, dallas.

My "Salty" Halloween Costume

I told myself so many times that I would make my Elsa costume. A long, gorgeous blue shimmering gown that would have definitely been a game changer. But time was lacking on my part and I wasn't sure how I was going to pull off the "cool" hostess costume so last minute. We just hosted a Halloween party at our place and between working, school, and party planning I wasn't sure what I was going to be. And we all know that guests always kind of expect their hosts/hostesses to have sweet costumes right....

I came across the idea of being the Morton's salt girl on Lauren Conrads "Tuesday's Ten: Halloween Costume Ideas" post from a few years ago and fell in love it. And the best thing about it, I already had most of the items in my closet! Minus the dress.

So I went to our local consignment store, The Storm Cellar,  and found this amazing Ann Taylor Loft dress in mustard yellow for only $20.00! Not to mention that it's not "costume-y" at all so I can wear it after the holiday as well.

I had a can of Morton's salt in my spice cabinet so I poured it all into a mason jar and I poked two holes in the sides and attached a rope to wear it as a purse to store candy in.

Here are a few photos of our Halloween Dance Extravaganza.


I couldn't locate any of my exact pieces online but here are similar options to help get you started for next year!

H&M Short Mustard Yellow Dress: $24.95
Totes Clear Bubble Umbrella: $16.99
Black Leather Chelsea Boots: $75.78

You guys are awesome, be safe out there!

love always, dallas.
