New in the closet: sweater weather

Hey y'all! Happy Monday! As usual, we've been horribly confused lately in Texas with the weather! One day we're sweating in the 90s (seriously y'all, last week we hit a record high for November) and the next day we're bundled up in sweaters. I've switched our A/C from cold to heat and back twice now and every day I have to go outside with my morning coffee to check the temperature before getting dressed. Despite being in Texas almost my entire life, you never really get used to it, in my opinion.

Fort worth shopping events Oct 24-28

Hey y'all! We all know that shopping is way more fun when there is champagne, wine and/or appetizers involved! Today I wanted to tell you quickly about two fun shopping events happening in Fort Worth. One is today, Tuesday, October 24th, and the other is Saturday, October 28th.

If you've read a few of my latest posts, you'll know that I'm really in love with the West Bend shopping area on University. If you have yet to visit West Bend, today would be a great day to check it out! Pax and Parker is having a shopping event today from 4 p.m. to 7 and you can sip champagne and earn double rewards points.
The other shopping event I want to highlight is happening this Saturday. It is brought to you by Sundance Square and it sounds like so much fun! This is a "Spooky Sip and Shop" event you need to purchase tickets for ahead of time. There are multiple shops participating! Shops are having special deals and discounts. There will also p drinks in light bites provided. Ticket purchase is $25 and it is actually a donation to The Tarrant Area Food Bank. You can read more about this event HERE and purchase tickets.

I'd love to know if you're going to this event! Saturday is my birthday and I'm still not sure what I'll be doing, but this sounds like a really fun option!

Arts goggle today!

Arts Goggle is happening today! This is definitely one of my favorite events of the year. I've said it before and I'll say it again, one of the best things about Fort Worth is a small-town feel with a ton of cultural events and a plethora of talented locals (yeah I just used the word plethora, my husband would be so proud... We're big Three Amigo fans haaa). And usually a lot of those events are free, including today's Arts Goggle in the Near Southside.

Kendall's 1st birthday: Party shoes

Hey y'all! I feel like I have been so MIA from the blog and I'm so sorry. Life is always taking over. We celebrated Kendall's first birthday over the weekend and I think I'm still in shock that my baby is one year old! I mentioned on Instagram that I will be doing a series of blog posts about her birthday party. I will be going over the decor I used, a few DIY projects, and outfits.

Chris is working late tonight and I am taking a little bit of relaxing mommy time with my real housewives (I have a sick obsession!!) But I wanted to link Kendall's party shoes for Tuesday Shoes Day!
I love allowing Kendall to be barefoot almost everywhere. She basically never wears shoes when we're home. And even when I take her outside to play we love to both be barefoot. However she is walking so much now that we needed to invest in a good pair of shoes. I decided to buy her these platinum bow moccasins as a birthday present and give them to her before her party since they matched her dress perfectly. So far they are tricky for her to walk on our hardwood floors LOL. When she walked out into her party she stood perfectly still in the same spot for probably about 3 minutes, just looking around at everybody and not understanding what the birthday party was 😂 But I know with a little practice she'll get the hang of it.
You can find these adorable shoes HERE. I went with a neutral color that I know will go with a lot of her outfits. There are so many adorable shoes that I want!! Y'all seriously, the prints!!!

I can't wait to share more details with you about her party. It was a great success and we all had a lot of fun! How was your weekend? has anybody gone to the state fair yet? Did everybody enjoy the gorgeous weather we had today in DFW?

Today I'm sharing a few of the fun Fort Worth activities happening this weekend! A lot of them (most!) are free and family friendly!

Plaid poncho and 3 things I'm looking forward to this fall

I've had this plaid poncho for a couple of years now.  I had it on a wish list and my sweet friend Kelly sent it to me as a gift.

Floral kimono

I don't really enjoy online shopping that much for myself.  I really prefer the actual experience of shopping and trying things on rather than clicking a button. But, since becoming a first time mommy, I haven't had as much time for clothing shopping and online shopping has become a handy tool for me.

Buffalo check top and my Fort Worth mural series

Happy Friday y'all! I'm sharing this fun lace up top today and I wanted to make a fun announcement! I am going to be doing a huge roundup of Fort Worth murals for you! I'm so in love with all the art that is popping up around Funkytown and love that everyone is embracing the mural love! Murals have been pretty hot lately and I love that Fort Worth is getting just a little funkier ;)

Lace bell sleeve top + West Elm Fort Worth grand opening

Ok so Kendall is on a pretty good schedule and she's usually getting bottle and going to bed somewhere around 6:30-7:30 every night. It's awesome that she finally sleeps so well at night considering what my first few months were with her, BUT it also means that unless we have a babysitter Chris and I are chillin and locked into in the house at 6pm haha.

Well, last night momma broke the rules so we could stop by the opening of the brand new Fort Worth West Elm!
