The Chronicles of Cook Blogging: Part 1

Buy a camera they said...
You will be great at it they said... 

Until I stood in front of an off white wall and realized how awkward I am to photograph... well... myself. I originally bought the new camera in efforts to take better photographs of ALL THE THINGS. I then challenged myself to shoot... myself. After a few camera adjustments and some SUPER AMAZING test shots (HA), I finally got into the gist of things. I present you with my first amateur (emphasis on amateur) fashion post. Keep your eyes out for Part 2 it's going to be a DOOZIE. And yes, that's a Mexican Coke. #Texas

Pajama Partier or Cat Lady? You Decide...

Happy Happy Sunday! About a year ago I decided to delve into the world of Trunk Club. This was when the companies focus was predominantly men but they started to pilot women's apparel. You know they have that awesome 'hey we will shop for you' kinda vibe. Naturally, I was 100% interested. I've really tried them all (I MEAN ALL OF THEM) and if anyone is interested in something like that let me know... there's some ones out there that are amazing!

Out of the 7 boxes that I received (no not all at once) I wanted just about everything from each box. Generally they consisted of AG JeansSplendid Pajama Set, Alice & Olivia and some cute little tops by Cupcakes and Cashmere (which I am unable to find). I was sold on the box, I bought a abundance of items. After box three I sat there in (almost) my (NEW) cozy pajamas with a hefty glass of wine. I started to just love all the things and slowly start ripping the tags off like it was Christmas Day. Tag... after tag... after tag, they seemed to pop off so easily, it like it was a game. A way fun and dangerous game.

That leads me into self reflecting on whether I'm just getting older and really like hanging out at home drinking wine in my #adulting pajamas or... if I'm on the declination of becoming that pretty awesome wine drinking cat lady (+ Griff and Steven.)

Regardless, I found this brand and I thought y'all might enjoy it as well. If you're on the verge of becoming a cat lady, and/or getting married, or HELL, just want to have a good old girls night over in matching pajamas. (I will not confirm or deny that that has occurred in my life).

I present to you...

Giambattista Valli Resort 2017 Fashion Show

I'm usually a Miu Miu, LV, or a Chanel girl when it comes to #PFW (Paris Fashion Week), but this year I'm really digging Giambattista Valli's line this year. Regardless that the designer is an Italian, the presentation in Paris this week was quite beautiful! Here are some of my favorite highlights of the show:

If you have not heard of or seen Quay, check them out they are one of my new fav's.

Happy Saturday.

I've decided to re-take on the blog... with that being said, I think there's some serious >Austin..Texas<  rebranding needing to take place. I will still be posting regularly, but coming soon will be a brand new blog! I know y'all will LOVE it!

Wedding Wednesday: Inspiration

In another life I was a wedding planner, and it was a great life. I tend to gravitate towards 99% of flowers and pretty dresses. Hence my love for curating all things wedding-ish. This orange arrangement is just perfect.

Button-Downs aka Acceptable Pajamas

There are some days when all I want to do is thrown on a pair of yoga pants and a v-neck and stroll into work. This is especially true on Friday's. More recently I have been drawn to button down's and leggings, comfy... and partially professional... YEP!
