Usually when I think of pearls – pretty comes to mind (prev post here). In this look I love the pearlsand lace mixed with destruction. This post was inspired by nonother than a little Pinterest surfing 😊 As I mentioned in my last couple of posts I was in a bit of a closet rut and these pins here and here sparked this look. A black base (top+bottom) along with a statement piece (denim jacket) was a pretty easy/ I guess you could say “cool” look to achieve. This season I would have to say that two of my recent most worn pieces are in this post - A black slip dress and of course this adorable pearl denim jacket. Wait where's the dress??? A little closet improv and I tucked this lacey dress right on in. I wanted a pretty lace cami but hey this works just fine. I've worn this slip dress under a blazer, under a shear dress (as an actual slip), and now as a lace cami :)
The real star of my look is definitely this oversized denim jacket. Let me tell you it has earned its keep for sure in my closet and it was SUCH a steal! I was shopping around and found it for $29 – it is a juniors label I believe and MUCH less than a few of the contemporary labels I've seen. I absolutely loved this look but with denim and pearls being such a trend of the moment I wasn't sure if I wanted to fully commit to the price. Happy with my get the look find. During our last trip out to LA this jacket was the perfect outfit completer. The market buildings were freezing and I was wrapped up all week. The whole oversized style is definitely one of this Fall’s look of the moments as well. My jacket is a size small but sized up in the fit. I like the cozy oversized feeling – everything I see these days is either cropped or oversized haha. I am a fan of both especially these oversized sweaters here and here. Ah and I need Texas to get a little cooler because I am dying to wear this oversized Chenille sweater I bought here a few weeks ago!  
Life updates – I’ll be hanging out in Houston for the next few weeks and happy to take a travel rest. It’s been a busy few weeks between LA and NY. But of course I absolutely loveddd spending last week in my old neighborhood. It was nice catching up with all the girlfriends (cheers), shopping all the places, and visiting my favorite spots. The Crooked Knife (ALL TIME FAV), Sweetgreen, Culture Espresso+IrvingFarm Roasters made the list along with newcomers Sel Rrose (do it for the gram), De Maria, and Honeybrains (lol at the name). My workout girls and I tried SweatShed (HIIT and omg still sore) and I was able to make it to a couple of my favorite Dance classes at my old gym. The Aggies won and we had a nice chill night complete with facemasks and vino. Griffin and I were able to get some great fall style snaps -and loved spending Sunday in Central Park- we got our hill walk workout on haha.
Now that I am back for a bit I am excited to continue to get to know my home in Houston and spend some time in the city. Any must try places please send my way! Chayson and I have some exploring to do – especially with the Fall breeze we are having 😊 Oh and thank you to my new friend Kristine for these style snaps. We were friends/ blog supporters on Instagram before I moved and what a small world – she lives a few floors down from me.  Yay new friends and Houston weekends!
