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!

Olive choker tank and Kendall's cactus print dress

Hmm, let me talk about olive ONE MORE TIME ;) I love this tank! First of all, it's a nice soft fabric with some stretch so it wears well. It's very comfortable and can be easily layered. This will be a perfect piece to snag now (it's a steal!) and layer under cardigans and jackets for fall.

I'm having so many moments lately when I pause and think, Kendall can't be this old! Or this big! She just turned 10 months on Monday and it seems so crazy.

She's staying awake longer and fighting her afternoon nap so much! A lot of days now she's just awake and there is no second nap. So I find myself going into her room with her more just to change up the scenery after playing in the living room/ kitchen.

I love how her room came together and I thought I'd share a little teaser before actually doing a room tour! Enjoy :)

Tuesday Shoes day: Vince Camuto heels

Just wanted to share that these heels are probably the most comfy I've ever purchased!
I'm not having any issues with being on my feet for a long time or having to walk around. I wore them to the Dallas Aquarium and I wear them frequently around Fort Worth.  I love the nude color and that they go with dressier outfits as well as my favorite distressed jeans.
Distressed denim, my favorite tank, a chunky sweater and these heels!  This has been my favorite outfit lately. You'll probably see it a lot! I've been loving the thunderstorms in Fort Worth the last few days and I'm ready for more! Come on cooler temps and all things fall! 🍃

Blush and olive casual Friday

Happy Friday y'all!! I've mentioned a few times on the blog now that I've been crushing over olive and blush together. Well the color combo obsession is continuing!

Day Designer 2018 Planner

If you're at all like me you HAVE TO have a planner. I live off of to-do lists and having a visual of my time. Let's be honest, to be "adulting" correctly, you have to know WTF is going on at all times and carefully and strategically use your time. Especially if you work from home or work for yourself. Discipline and planning are a must.

Haute Mess tee and 5 ways I'm getting back to being my pre-baby self

So, lately I've been motivated to really, for lack of a better term, get shit done! For awhile I really felt drowned in new-mommy-hood and not a lot like myself but lately I feel like I'm on a great upswing.

Follow Friday: fort worth Instagram accounts I love

Hey y'all! Happy Friday! Apparently today is the hottest day yet here in Fort Worth! Ugh!
I wanted to do a Fort Worth related Follow Friday post and quickly share a few of my favorite Fort Worth Instagram accounts to follow! I love the history of Fort Worth and learning about historic properties and architecture. I lived downtown for almost a decade in a gorgeous historic building and I now live in a house that was built in 1910 (it's renovated). I live in a neighborhood that is passionate about the history and the homes and I love following accounts that teach me new things!

Here's a few favorites:

There's also a lot of change happening in Fort Worth and here's one of my favorites for showing new development:

Be sure to follow me on Instagram as well :)

If you have any others to suggest, be sure to leave a comment!! Thanks for stopping by! Hope y'all have a great Fri-YAY!!

Watermelon stripe halter

Always living life colorfully over here, especially during the summer. Summer brights and warm nights!! I love this striped halter so much. The name of the print is watermelon stripe and it definitely gives me all the summer feels! Back to school and fall fashion sales may be running rampant but y'all, it's still 100 degrees outside!

Chris and I stopped by Inspiration Alley in Fort Worth today because it's been on my to do list. Shocker that we were the only ones there at 3pm on a balls hot day lol! You can see a little bit on my Instagram Stories!
I plan on going back for many more shoots but today was a last minute "Hey we don't have the kid" moment ;-) This is only a small sampling of the murals. More on those later!!

This top has such cute details like the braided ties. Also love the peplum because that's still such a huge trend right now! You can find this halter HERE for less than $40! It's also part of a big BOGO 50% off sale so be sure to check out all of the BOGO items HERE!
Another week has flown by! What are your plans for the weekend?

Marc Fisher Mules

Happy Tuesday!! I've been loving these Marc Fisher mules this season.
 They are so comfortable!! I bought them at DSW and you can find them HERE
I really love pairing blush with olive green. I think it's a little unexpected and an easy way to transition into fall. In Texas, you have to come up with creative ways to continue your summer wardrobe (because of the heat!) but still manage to make your outfits "feel" like fall. This is where darker fall fabrics come into play and "fall" textures and patterns (plaids, chunky knits, cashmere cardigan and and ponchos, etc) You may still be wearing shorts but you can throw on a cardigan or wear some plaid :)
If you're looking to make a purchase that is a little more on the bootie side for fall, I love these other Marc Fisher ankle strap sandals! 

These are pricier than the mules but the 4 color choices are more neutral AND they are currently 40% off at Nordstrom!  Pick them up while you're already making your #NSale purchases! Get them HERE

Usually I'm all about summer but this year I think I'm already so ready for fall!! Pretty sure it has something to do with toting this child around ;) What's your favorite trend for fall?

Me and mini me: swimwear

Hey y'all! Happy weekend! Today we're headed to my friend's daughter's 1st birthday party and we'll be poolside! Kendall and her friend are three months apart... I can't believe I'll be throwing a 1st birthday party in just a few short months!! Like I already cry because Kendall seems so big to me. I'll probably cry today and it's not even my child!! Becoming a mommy brings on so many emotions and milestones and I'm so thankful to have a best friend with a girl the same age and that we all can get together for special occasions like today. We are all so blessed!

I bought Kendall's cactus suit online HERE. I'm obsessed with it and I would seriously buy it for myself. I want to throw a cactus party for Kendall and my husband kind of thinks I'm nuts lol!

I bought my suit last night while grocery shopping (typical #momlife... Special order something for the kid, throw yourself together with whatever you can find last minute). But actually I wanted just a plain black suit and this was less than $10! I'm linking it online HERE BUT, it says out of stock. My Walmart had a ton... So maybe just run there in person. There's also a super cute crochet version HERE (again, my Walmart had a ton of these in store, all colors).

Hope y'all have an awesome weekend! If you're outside, remember the sunscreen. It's freaking hot in Texas! Can't wait to see how today goes! Follow along on my Instagram stories (@Texas_sass) or my Snapchat (@TX.Sass)

Kendall Renee Altizer

Well it's been a good 7 and 1/2 months since I wrote a blog post!  I feel super rusty but eager to get back to my flow.  I wanted to do a quick post to formally introduce my daughter and show a few of her newborn photos, which I'm realizing I never shared!  I'll go more in depth later about my experiences in the first few months, but for now, just a few details of her birth :)
