I was long overdue for an adventure with @jessica_s_pappu, but going on @jarvisthegemini’s first hike made up for the fact that we were supposed to be in Colorado this weekend. 😍

I was long overdue for...

The real winner of quarantine... @jarvisthegemini. He’s been getting all the love and affection from us, I think he’s over it. 
It’s great having a dog right now. He keeps me company while @sammen89 has to work from home, instead of my extroverted self getting lonely. How are you guys doing?

The real winner of quarantine......

#TBT. Any other extroverts going stir-crazy?

Back from when I was allowed to go outside. This was last month actually. I was hiking a lot as I prepare to (hopefully) make it up a 14er in CO with my outdoorsy other-Jessica @jessica_s_pappu. I was doing well for about 75% of this hike but that last stretch back took a lot out of me. 
Fun fact, for being from Texas I actually DON’T hate the cold. Cold + wind is a different story though.

Back from when I was...

I work in one of the industries heavily affected by the virus. For the first time in at least a year I had a job I loved going to, a company I believed in, and an industry that I’ve always wanted to work in. I loved my team and I felt like I belonged. Now, I’m furloughed, stuck at home until who knows when. I know it’s only temporary but it still sucks. This pause has forced me to do something I hate doing, to slow down. I hope you and yours are staying healthy and taking this time to focus on the important things: each other. Stay strong.

I work in one of...

Slowly working my way back to that “influencer” life. 🥴

Fun fact, I always HATED being called that. It often gets used synonymously with people that are shallow or are just self-centered, only caring about how things looked. I’ve been there. I’ve been where I planned on what to do based on “how it looks.” I’ve been depressed when my posts didn’t do as well as I thought they should. I spent money on outfits that I’d wear once, or plan outfits to wear in public based on what I’d be posting. I took it personal when I saw my follower count decrease. Eventually I’d had enough of my mental health tied to social media. I cleaned up 15000 “ghost” followers, people that followed me for giveaways or other reasons and didn’t ever actually care about my content, leaving people that I thought actually cared (and still lost about 1k). I’m definitely still learning the balance, and I often just lean towards not posting anything, instead of posting to have a post for the day or keep my content on your feeds. If you notice long gaps between my posts, that’s what’s going on. Quality//Quantity ☺️

Slowly working my way back...

Apparently between me, KP, and Dončić, only one of us will be showing up to the Mavs//Hawks game 😂 (swipe right) #MFFL

Fall Flannel – Friday Favorites

The temperature is starting to drop and the leaves are set to change in the next week or two. I’m so excited!
With the changing leaves, we go from wearing light chiffon and gauzy materials to light flannels and layers.  Here are 5 different ways to wear flannel, from professional to a casual night out!

 

Professional:
It’s actually surprisingly easy to dress up a flannel shirt. Just pair it with a pencil skirt or trousers, add work appropriate shoes (closed toe and no heels for me) and add accessories. This flannel shirt is neutral, allowing for more pops of color, but if you’re wearing traditional flannel prints (reds, and blues), just pull compliments to color block (ie: bright pinks with blue flannels, reds with cream and gold).

Retro Vibes:
The 70’s are back in full swing with flared jeans being the trend for this season. Flannel shirts naturally have a vintage vibe so pairing them with flares with chunky heels and jewelry is a no brainer. Pile on the gold!

Warm and Cozy:
Nothing is worse than being cold (and showing it) when you’re out on the town. It’s cool enough to not wear a tank top, but not cold enough to break out a moto jacket. I’m in a perpetual state of cold, so this is a style I reach for often. I added a lacy camisole to add a feminine touch and I picked jewelry with stones to add a cool texture to offset the warmth of the flannel.

Classic:
This is simple and self explanatory. It combines skinny jeans, a scarf, and riding boots to give off  equestrian vibes. I kept the jewelry simple and modern to keep the focus on the cute foxes printed on this scarf.

The Unexpected Twist:
A dress with a flannel shirt? Don’t knock it till you try it. If you’re wary use a neutral dress so it doesn’t compete with the pattern on the flannel. You can wear it loose, with a knot at your midriff. If it gets too warm, you can wear it around your waist for a throwback to the 90’s.

Live fearlessly,
