I Believe In....

I believe in laughing.

I believe in making mistakes... big mistakes and then letting myself more on quickly and learning from them.

I believe in peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, every day for lunch. 

I believe girlfriends are the best medicine for anything that is wrong.

Night out with friends in Kansas City.
I believe that working your ass off will eventually pay off.

I believe that being 5 lbs over my "goal" weight but eating the tacos, french fries, and drinking the beer, in the long run makes me a happier girl.

I believe that watching Love Actually and crying your eyes out is how to get over a broken heart, and keeps my faith that "Love is all around..."

I believe in watching Glee, Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, and Revenge and not being embarrassed about how much I love it.

Quinn Fabray and Rachel Berry
I believe in candles.

I believe in the color pink.

I believe a fur vest makes any outfit a little better.

I believe that dressing up and being girly makes me amazingly happy.

I also believe that sitting in my sweat pants drinking red wine makes me amazingly happy.

I believe in family.  The kind of family that makes you mad, cry, yell, and fight but also makes you laugh until you cry and understands you better than you understand yourself.

I believe in reading to escape to a different place.

I believe in flowers. 

I believe in crying, even if you're not completely sure why you're doing it.

I believe in the power of being alone.

I believe in watching old movies with Audrey Hepburn and Lucille Ball to make me feel like I am in a different time and place.

Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire in Funny Face
I believe in singing ridiculous songs at the top of my lungs.

I believe in "All I Want for Christmas is You"by Mariah Carey. 

I believe in the power of New York City, and the magic of Paris.

I believe in being a little naive over being jaded.

I believe in being a kind person.

I believe in Birthday's, and Birthday party's, no matter how old you are turning.

I believe women should be strong enough to stand their ground but able to always embrace their femininity.

I believe true love exists.

I believe in living life to it's fullest, traveling when I can, and being there for my family and friends, even if it means my bank account can barely pay a bill sometimes.

I believe being over dressed is always better than being underdressed. 

Oscar de la Renta Gown
I believe in dancing like no one is watching; when everyone is watching.

I believe your real friends will always be there. No matter what life brings.

I believe in college football, and tailgating.

I believe in Fall; the trees, the smells, pumpkins; everything.

I believe in coffee.

I believe that a great outfit can make all the difference in your attitude and mood.

Above all else I believe that being comfortable in your own skin and truly being who you are is the only way to be entirely happy.

I stole this idea from Monica at Finer Feelings who just happens to make an appearance in one of my pictures. {or several through out the blog...}

Fall Fever :: Boot Obsessed

I love Fall. EVERYTHING about it.  I just got to New York for Coterie which means that I start wearing Fall clothing whether the weather permits or not. {Ok so there was a random drop in temp last week for Dallas so I started a little early.} I love fur vests, jackets, layering, scarves, but most of all, I have a love affair with boots.  So far this Fall I have bought 1 pair.  They have not arrived yet but OMG I can't wait....

Aren't they beyond amazing?  Get ready because I will be wearing them with everything. The first outfit will be red jeans and a fur vest but the options are literally endless. Fingers crossed they've arrived once I get home...

Mockingbird Station :: What to Wear Event

Hello lovelies! Have you missed me? I know... I have been totally MIA and I have no excuse for it.  Life got in the way a little and I made the conscience decision to let it and take a teeny tiny break from the blog.  Well I'm back but only hardly tonight.  I wanted to share with you my guest post on Mockingbird Station's blog for their What to Wear Event next week! Even though I haven't been able to attend many events lately I am still a station insider so check out my post to see what you should go snatch up at the many great stores there just in time to wear to the event!

I wish I could go but alas I will be back in NYC {rough huh?}.  I will do an EXTRA good job of taking pictures and blogging some fun stuff while there.  Until I get time for something more go over to Mockingbird Station's blog and see my post there!
