Happy Friday Friends! 

How’s life? How was your week? Ours definitely flew by, which is my favorite kind of week! I don’t know what it was, but I just felt super inspired all week. I was getting up early, getting things done at work, I was super productive at home in the evenings and went to bed at a decent hour, like every night. Cough, cough, like 9:30. Who am I?? 

Oh and one more thing. I literally only had one glass of wine all week. Could this be the reason why?? I’ll keep you guys updated. 

In other news, I’m not sure if you guys have noticed or not, but the past few Fridays, I have been trying to show more weekend outfits for you all. Specifically going out and date night outfits. This Ayana Sweet Heart Dress has been a total show stopper for me. The moment I put it on the other evening, before heading out, Colton goes, “Wow, you look really good! I really like that dress!”. Which obviously made me feel super confident when going out! I also just love the details on this dress. This Ayana Sweet Heart Dress is also under $100 so total plus there too! While I would not wear this to a Holiday party, I will be wearing this dress when going out to dinner with my girlfriends, as soon as they get in town for the holidays. 

I also love these Steve Madden booties because they are surprisingly super elongating. I was a little hesitant to get them at first, just because every girl I have seen wearing them, are like 6 feet tall and total model status. I wasn’t sure how they would look on my 5 foot frame – lol. 

One more thing! I’ve been getting asked on Snapchat from a lot of you guys what lip color I have been wearing all week, and it’s this Stila Lip Stain in Patine. I highly recommend it and love the color, but because it is a lip stain, it can dry out your lips pretty fast so be sure to put some sort of lip balm over it! 

 I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! Colton and I are heading to Waco for the whole weekend to work on a fun project, as well as see Baylor play! 

Have a great weekend! 

xo,

Lauren

Good Morning! 

I don’t know about you guys, but today definitely feels more like a Monday to me. Sunday night, our flight coming home from San Francisco, was super delayed, so we didn’t make it to the apartment until almost 3:00 a.m. So to say we were exhausted yesterday, would be the understatement of the century!! I’m literally feeling a million times better today though. It’s a new day and the first day of the new month. I have high hopes for November! 

Over the weekend, Colton and I really talked a lot about what we are thankful for and the way we view certain aspects of our lives. I think with all of the social media we are exposed too, it leaves us at times, not feeling complete in our own lives. It’s easy to look at others and somewhat play the comparison game. I’m guilty of this. I’m guilty of looking at others and thinking I am not enough or the way others are living their lives, is better than the way I am living mine. 

The thing is though, if you live your life that way, you will never be complete. It’s so easy to get so caught up in focusing on what you don’t have, instead of focusing on what you do have. Which is sad, because everyone has something amazing in their life to be thankful for.In some way, we are blessed every single day. 

Which is why I am really going to focus on giving thanks and truly being appreciative for the whole month of November and not just on Thanksgiving. To really focus on counting my blessings and not my problems. My plan is, that by focusing on what I am thankful for, for the whole month, that it will help me to transition into how I will view things for the rest of the year. 

Any who, you can thank all of the wine from this past weekend, for today’s life talk -lol!

Now really fast,  I want to talk about this Popcorn French Connection Sweater. Ya’ll, the best sweater ever. The moment I saw how cold it was going to be in Napa, I knew I was bringing this baby along with me. For being an over sized sweater, it is actually very flattering and the popcorn texture really makes it different. I paired it with these camel colored OTK boots to really give the whole look that fall feel! Now if only Texas could start to feel a little bit more like fall…..Hopefully November will bring it to us! 

Tomorrow I will be sharing a few ways to give thanks throughout the whole month of November, along with things I have done in the past!

xo,

Lauren
