Thursday Night Football

The kids went back to school this week and there was no time to waste when it comes to extra-curricular activities.  Our oldest plays in the marching band and they had their first game last night.  I decided to go back to basics and wear a classic white tee, jeans and flats to watch the game.
Top: Banana Repulic Double Layer Linen Tee (buy 2-tone here)
Jeans: Paige Premium Denim Skyline in Dream (buy) 
Earrings: Blue Nile (buy); Necklace: Express (old)
Bracelet: Leather Bar Bracelet c/o Ariel Gordon Jewelry
Handbag: Chloe Paddington (old- 2005) 
Shoes: Sam Edelman Inari via Buffalo Exchange
These are my new Paige Premium Denim Skyline jeans.  I ordered the straight cut and had my tailor hem them for flats. The color is similar to my Kylie crop jeans seen here and here, but the straight silhoutte feels more comfortable than the very skinny fit of my Kylie ones. I love them!
I also want to warn anyone that buys the two layer linen top from Banana Republic to read the care tag! I didn't  because I thought it was a t-shirt, a linen one, but just a t-shirt and I threw in the washing machine.  When it came out it was completely warped and the seams were twisted and I was pretty upset.  It turns out that this is a handwash only item and you are supposed to lay it flat to dry.  I've been able to fix it somewhat, but it turned into a much more high maintenance item than I expected from a t-shirt.

What are your closet basics?

How Pinteresting!

I am obsessed with Pinterest.  It feels like everytime I am supposed to be doing something, I glance at Pinterest and then the whole evening has gone by!  This is what I am obsessing about this week.

Evening Gowns - Dress Me Up Board

We have so many formal functions each holiday season, but these dresses have really caught my attention.  I love them all!

Fall Obsessions - Style I Love

Fall is so far away from Texas, but seeing everyone pulling out their boots and sweaters makes me wistful for November when our weather finally starts to cool.

Home Renovation Projects - For The Home

You guys, we don't even have a pool, but so many of my pins for the home have to do with pools!

I am also obsessed with the Duchess of Cambridge and Weddings even though I've been married for three years.  If you feel like checking out my boards and following me, you can see them here.
