CHIC MILITARY JACKET...


JACKET: Free People (on sale and comes in 3 colors) // CAMI: Topshop // JEANS: AG // SHOES: Sole Society // BAG: Henri Bendel // SUNGLASSES: Karen Walkers

It's no secrets that I love military/utility jackets. My first military colored item was the classic utility vest, I wore that thing to death. I found this camo jacket this fall and it has honestly been one of my favorites, I tie it around my waist with t-shirt dresses or a white cami and a pair of jeans. I saw this ruffle jacket from Free People and thought it was so pretty and feminine. The distressed ruffles make this jacket! I have a section of random military wife items and this one is my newest addition, lol. I also wore it with a stripe dress and black over the knee boots. 

We've been in Vietnam for three days and all we have done is eat. Literally, we wake up, eat, go get coffee, and eat again, lol. We're going out to explore the area in Hue tomorrow, FINALLY! I'll be sure to post pictures on my Instagram and Snapchat (anniemescall)

Thank you so much for reading!

TWISTING THINGS UP...



SWEATER: Chicwish // LEGGINGS: BP (run huge, size down) // SHOES: Adidas // BAG: Henri Bendel (1/2 off!) // BEANIE: H&M 

A big Hello from Vietnam! 

I landed in Vietnam on Monday and things have been hectic up to it. I didn't post as much last week because I was planning our trip, but I have tons of cute outfits and tips to share with yall this month. I decided to branch out of my comfort zone and try something a little more "sporty". Athleisure wear has been the hype for the past two seasons. Personally, I think Kendall Jenner's athleisure outfits are amazing! I love her street style and how she throws on sneakers (these superstar ones specifically) with just about anything. Turning workout clothes into a trendy fashionable attire is actually a lot easier than it looks. For example, I usually wear my sweaters with jeans and booties but I  twisted it up this time by added some adidas superstars and faux leather leggings. You could also add a bomber jacket or a neutral coat for layers. 

I'm always searching for new sweaters, especially now that I live in Colorado. It's freezing from September to early May! Chicwish carries a pretty selection of sweaters and coats for reasonable prices. I'm in love with this knotted sweater, I might just have to order it. I got this beautiful dress for my friends wedding and plan on wearing it to my Mom's wedding next week. (This is the full blog post for that outfit. I love this dress too!)I love that their sweaters are trendy and different. I've shopped with them for almost 2 years now. They have my dream closet!  

Thank you so much for stopping by!

FIRST SIGNS OF SNOW...








TOP: HM // BOTTOMS: BP // SHOES: Hunter // SCARF: here and here // Liam- JACKET: Zara // BOTTOMS: Gap // SHOES: Freshly Picked (Zion color) // BEANIE: Zara 

Happy New Years! I spent New Years Eve popping fireworks and going to dinner with my family. Tommy and I originally had plans to go out but we decided that we would much rather watch Liam go crazy over the fireworks. He was so so excited (and a little scared) about lighting fireworks with Tommy and his uncle and then jetting off after it started to spark. It's such a blessing to be able to spend time with family and enjoy one another. Staying in Texas has been a little stressful, but being able to spend time with our families is well worth it. My 2017 resolution is to take care of my skin and eat healthier. I've noticed that I've already started to show signs of wrinkles and it haunts me. I also plan to travel a lot this year, Liam and I are going out of the country next week for the first time! I can't wait to see what 2017 has in stores for us.

My first outfit of 2017 on my blog is one that I've worn over and over. Ever since I've moved to Colorado, I've been in love with the beautiful mountain views and snowfall. We got our first snowfall early December and it was pretty. I feel like a little girl every time it snows, it's magical every time, lol. I love the white cold snow, hot chocolate drinks, and bundling up with my family. I keep my outfit pretty basic when I plan on going outside; leggings, oversized sweater, hunter boots, and a scarf. This scarf, as I've mentioned before is one of my favorites. Its a classic scarf that has been popular for the past 3ish years?! I hope it continues to snow through this winter. Liam LOVES it!

Happy New Years!

WINTER COATS UNDER $100...



TOP: Nordstrom // COAT: Shein // BOTTOMS: Zella // SHOES: Dolce Vita (old, similar here) // BAG: Gucci // SUNGLASSES: Karen Walker // BEANIE: Gap 

The holidays are over for me, its straight back to work. Everything has been so hectic up until Christmas. I've barely even had time to think. I really appreicate the nights where I can work on my blog, relax, and have a glass of wine. I hate when this day rolls over every year, the day after Christmas. I would actually love it if Christmas was all year round, lol. At least, we have New Years Eve and winter to look forward to! I actually had to google when winter started because it has been extremely warm in Texas, high 70's and 80's. It's kind of nice because I don't have to throw on tons of  layers before walking outside and I can wear lightweight winter coats when the temperatures drop. 

I've had this coat for a few weeks now and it's so pretty. I often gravitate towards classic carmel and black trench coat, so it was time to change it up. I find a lot of my trendier coats on Shein. I bought this one last year and love the cognac and black color mix. A lot of their coats are well under $100! This pretty checked one that I'm wearing today is under $40 (I'm wearing an XS)! I linked several of my favorites below.
