I'm Missing My Baby...Sister

Mr. Fantastic drove us to the airport to drop off my sister on Saturday afternoon.  She was here for just over two weeks, but somehow, we never seem to have enough time together.  Yesterday was her first day of class and I hope she had a wonderful one!  I am posting some of the things she wore during her visit.  She scored some amazing deals during the after Christmas sales.
Vested Sequin Top: BCBGMaxAzria
Jeans: Paige Premium Denim
Shoes: Manolo Blahnik (not shown)
This was her New Year's Eve look after we spent the first couple of days of her visit completely bundled due to a surprise snowfall and subsequent cold front.  We found this gorgeous sequined blouse at the BCBGMaxAzria outlet. It was marked down to $29.99 and they were having a 50% off sale on all apparel, so yes, she bought this vested, sequined top for $15.00! I only found a scarf.
Striped Sweater: Banana Republic
Jeans: Paige Premium Denim
Boots: MIA
She wore this outfit to visit the Dallas Museum of Art with me for the Posters of Paris exhibit.  She had about 10 minutes to get dressed and I love the way she paired this striped top with the colored jeans. The striped sweater was on sale and 40% off on top of that at Banana Republic ($24) and the jeans are her favorite brand and were found at Nordstrom Rack for $39.99.  She borrowed my boots.  I love the second photo because it really highlights that she has such a small waist.  She has to be so careful because she has big breasts and it's very easy to look top-heavy in most trendy clothes.
Top: Hanes; Jeans: Levi’s
Bag: Cambridge Satchel Company
Boots: MIA
She wore this easy outfit to brunch with Morgan and her baby.  A classic look for her with the black top, bootcut Levi's, and her new Cambridge Satchel Company crossbody.  This was another find at Nordstrom Rack and it was on sale for $59.99.  She was thrilled to find it in such a classic color because we found it online for twice as much!
  Tank: Vivienne Tam; Sweater: Banana Republic
Denim: c/o Paige Premium Denim (borrowed)
  Bag: Cambridge Satchel Company
Boots: Ugg
Finally, this is what she wore to brunch to celebrate Mr. Fantastic and his sister's birthdays before she had to go home.  She borrowed my Paige skinnies and Ugg boots to pair with her other striped sweater find from Banana Republic ($32.00) and her new favorite bag.

I know I'm the one acting like a baby, but I already miss her.  St. Patrick's Day can't get here fast enough!
I wish all college students a happy return to class! Go get 'em, Tigers!


  1. Love the red and stripes! Easily my favorite combo :)

  2. She is so pretty! Glad to hear you were able to spend time together :)

  3. She's really cute! I always wish I had a sister!

  4. Thank you, all! I'm very lucky because we are so far apart in age that we've never been competitive with each other. Plus, I love being able to buy all the things that are inappropriate for me to wear and know that she can pull them off at her very young age.


Tell me what you think, but be nice! You catch more flies with sugar than spice!
