Happy Monday everyone! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Today I teamed up with Zappos X Easy Spirit to share my tips on dressing for success, tips I shared as a guest speaker for Phi Mu Fraternity at Houston Baptist last week. As a Phi Mu alumna I loved being able to connect with all the wonderful Phi Mu ladies and hopefully inspire them to be the best version of themselves. I remember my college days and the uncertainty that comes with trying to figure out who you are, what to study, and what you wanted to do after college. Dressing for success may not be a college course I took, but it was a valuable lesson I learned being part of Phi Mu. To this day it has been an integral part in what I do today as a lifestyle blogger. Check out my tips on dressing for success and how it keeps me moving and striving for my goals.
Last weekend I hosted my first ever blogger event benefiting the Children’s Miracle Network at Kendra Scott in Baybrook. I partnered up with Kendra Scott, Sweets by Syd, Kroger, Big Ass Balloons, Rise Cupcakes, HEB, Tiny Prints to throw this beautiful event. I am still in shock by the amount of success we had that night. We raised over $1689 dollars in less than three hours for Children’s Miracle Network. I am so thankful for everyone who came to support this event. It really means a lot to me. As you know in my previous post giving back to the community has always been important to me, and I am so thankful I can use my platform as a blogger help certain organization in need like Children’s Miracle Network. If you missed out on my event, no worries, below is my full recap plus a Kendra Scott GIVEAWAY with some of the newest fall pieces! Continue reading

Earlier this month I attended my first ever Phi Mu National Convention in Chicago. It was such a beautiful event, and I’m so glad I got to check it off my Sorority bucket list. When I was in college I did everything with my sorority. I was treasurer, then president, and I represented my University in the 2010 Annual NIC/NPC Congressional Visits. I owe a lot to my sorority for shaping who I am today. I never dreamed when I first started college I would ever be a sorority girl. In fact I detested the mere idea of the stereotypical sorority girl, but like many things you can’t judge a book by its cover. I am so glad I went on that ice skating date with my Phi Mu sister Jennifer. It opened doors to Phi Mu, and once I was in I never looked back. I am now the biggest supporter of Greek life, and encourage all women to give it a try. You never know when you will find your forever home. Phi Mu gave me a life time of memories with sisters I can grow old with, but it also taught me a lot about what it means to be a noble woman. Everything I’ve learned about being in a sorority has helped me a better blogger. Here are my top seven reasons why sorority girls make great bloggers.
This past weekend, my partner in crime and fellow style blogger Margret of Style Girl decided to explore the beautiful campus of Rice Village. As fellow Phi Mu sorority sisters we always shared our passion for photography and fashion. The campus was absolutely beautiful and baby friendly. I took my son with me for the opportunity to capture some “mommy and me” moments. I was surprised to see how many families were there with their young ones taking pictures. It seemed a very common thing for all the students there. They were very kind and didn’t seem to mind when they had to walk around us to avoid being in our photo shoot. It was definitely a challenge sometimes taking pictures with a baby, but I have to thank Margret for capturing some amazing shots and capturing these precious moments with me and my son. The dress I wore is one of my favorite dresses from the Buckle. It is sold out but I did put a link to a dress that is similar. Love the colors and print of the dress. It makes the dress come alive. I had so much fun taking these pictures with Margret and can’t wait for our future collaborations. Check out the some of the pictures I took of my beautiful sister for her blog post below!
I attended my Founder’s Day luncheon for my sorority this past week. It’s always a great time to reunite with sisters old and new, and one of my favorite things about attending this sorority event is dressing up for it. I recently purchased these darling pointed toe heels from CiciHot with grey cutout detailed ankle strap. I paired it up with a bright low cut satin dress from Bebe and layered it for a more classy look with a fringe cardigan from Billabong. Nothing rings in spring like fringe, bright colors, and fashionable heels.
