I’m a sucker for a silk blouse. It’s the most versatile thing I own and in my opinion, something every gal needs to have on hand. Recently I was introduced to Bradamant, a brand that makes silk tops a little differently. You see, this is actually a body suit that I am wearing. You read that right, a body suit! When I first heard about Bradamant, I was totally impressed. Not only is their suit totally practical, but it’s so easy to wear. I love not having to worry about shirt lines or wrinkles through out the day.
Many of you ask about my professional wardrobe and this would definitely be a look I would sport to school. It’s comfortable and lets me move easily. I would swap the pink pumps for some cute leopard flats.
Hi everyone! I’m sure some of you of getting ready for back to school, and some of you are thinking “thank goodness I’m done with that!”. Either way- we can always use some new clothes. These are a few items that particularly stood out to me as casual basics for fall. The scarf is a little bright, but I loved the colors with the navy and tan accents. As always, feel free to email or comment with any questions! Happy Shopping!
I have always had a weakness for desk accessories and office supplies. This may not come as a surprise considering I am a teacher, but I actually get excited to buy new pens and don’t even get me started on a new notepad. I recently was introduced to Remodo, an online interior design company dedicated to young adults and anyone who likes cute home goodies. Started in August 2013 by sisters Amanda and Whitney Fox, the site provides fresh, stylish options for all your home and office needs. I couldn’t resist this leopard lucite tray and this blue “notes” pad…too cute!

If there’s one thing you can count on in Texas, it’s the extreme heat (ok and the humidity). Two things that do not pair well with hair. Due to the unfortunate heat, I’ve been really inspired to find pretty hairstyles that help minimize frizz and are relatively low maintenance.
Side Braid Ponytail- This is an easy look for second day hair. I start by using Pantene Blowout Extend Dry Shampoo. The smell is awesome and it gives my hair a fresh clean look. It also gives some texture so I can get a little volume. Just spray in your roots (on top and under the first few layers by the crown) and gently rub your hands through the roots. Then, I made a simple braid on the side of my hair. I tie it with a little elastic then I pull all my hair back into a loose pony tail. I like to take out the little elastic that was holding the braid and throw in a bobby pin (you can leave it in too, whatever’s easier). After my hair is in the ponytail, I pull the hair up to give it more height. Don’t focus on it looking perfect, the idea is for it to be a little messy and carefree. I used the Pantene Stylers Flexible Hold Hairsprayto give my hair a little more volume.It still gives hold, but it’s not sticky and it’s easy to work with. Last, I take a one inch piece of hair from the bottom of my ponytail and wrap it around the hair tie. Tuck or pin it in place. I paired this look with my favorite BaubleBar Ariel Earrings and BaubleBar x Maya Brenner Initial Necklace to add a little glam.
Side Braid within Braid- This is a great look to keep your hair up and out of your face in the heat. I start my using Pantene Flexible Hold Hairsprayon my roots. This gives it a little grit and makes it easy to work with. I take about an inch of my hair at the root (you could definitely take more, depending on how big you want your side braid to be) and start with a simple braid. I keep braiding until I hit the top of my ear. Now is when I use the rest of my hair to make the bigger side braid. I just braid like normal making sure I keep the hair on the side that I want it to fall. I finish with the Pantene Extra Strong Hold Hairsprayto keep in in place and to help with all the flyaways. This braid was the perfect solution to show off my BaubleBar Firecracker Drop Earrings(that are surprisingly light weight).
Low Bun- This is one of my favorite looks. It’s easy and while messy, it still looks put together and polished. I start with using Pantene Blow Out Extend Dry Shampoo (I’m telling you, this stuff is amazing). Like I mentioned a few spray at the roots and under the first few layers at the top should do the trick. I take my hair, and throw it in a low loose pony tail. I say loose because you want to be able to pull some hair up to give it a little volume. Start by spraying your ponytail (the hair hanging down) with Pantene Flexible Hold Hairspray. This little trick makes it easier to twist and wrap your hair into a circle to create the “bun” look. After I twist and make into a circle, I then use another hair tie and tie it around the bun. This will look pretty messy, but I promise it will be fixed. Then take bobbi pins, I use about 8, and start pulling the hair to make it look full. Pin the pieces of hair to give it that full bun look. I just keep pinning until I feel its secure and the shape that I like. Finish with some Pantene Extra Strong Hairsprayfocusing on the bun and then all over to keep everything in it’s place. To complete the look, I wore my BaubleBar Hayworth Gem Drop Earrings and my BaubleBar x Maya Brenner Initial Necklace.

Equipmenthas grown to be one of my go to brands for silk basics. I’ve always heard people rave about The Slim Signature Silk Blouse and I had no idea how good it was until I tried it on my own. The price tag can be a little daunting but once you see for yourself you will quickly realize how great they are. The fit and quality are just a couple reasons why I choose Equipment as my silk blouse of choice.
I’ve always appreciated a Summery top, especially when it involves crochet detailing. There’s just something about lacy tunic that makes me think of Summer. I wore this this little crochet top last week to dinner and it was the perfect solution to these hot temperatures we’ve been having in Dallas. I am all about light and airy fabrics when its 100 outside! I kept the jewelry pretty minimal and just layered a few Gorjana necklaces and added a pop with this painted bangle byStacy Brown Designs.
There’s nothing quite like a week with your toes in the sand and sea salt in your hair. I wanted to share a few pictures from our family vacation last week. We stayed in a sweet little beach house right along the water. We usually travel to the Sea Side area in Florida, so this was our first time to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. The weather was great and the water was even better. (to see more of our pictures check out my instagram under #robertsonbeachbums) Until next time!

One of my favorite weekend traditions is brunch. It’s something my husband and I started doing when we got married, and it has now become a weekend ritual. This past weekend we went to one of our favorite spots in Dallas, The Bishop Arts District and had an amazing brunch at Oddfellows (huge wait so go early). The weather was surprisingly cool so I threw on this boho tunic (or dress if you size up), skinny jeans, and my trustworthy nude pumps. The perfect combo in my opinion!
