Is it Fall Yet? Chronicles of Cook Blogging Part 3

Fall in Texas...  let's put it this way it's 86 degrees outside and putting on a sweater will basically just make you sweat (cute, i know!)

With that being said, below is the closest to a fall look that I can achieve without pretending that it's 50 out and still smile, or smirk, or whatever my 'go to blogging face is.' Stay tuned it's still undefined.

Some of you might know that my blog had been around for 6 years, we've gone through some ups... and some downs (aka no posting) but it's always been something that I love to do. I love fashion, photography and curating. While I ramp up my photo/lightroom/writing skills, enjoy the awesomeness of the re-growth of the blog, and feel free to laugh with me. Wait until the blooper pictures come out... they are EPIC.

In the meantime, here's my new go to outfit, with a beautiful view of my back patio.

LBD && a Texas Gallery Wall

Here we go... Part 2 of Chronicles of Cook Blogging.

There's something that speaks to me when something is part etherial and part sexy. This dress was one of them. It's a dress that you can dress up with heels or just go to brunch in with some sassy flats. Unless you live in Austin, then brunch is usually done in leggings post workout with a bun! Regardless, I am in love with this dress and I can't wait to find occasions to wear it! Not to mention blue is a go to color for me!

So yes, shoot 2.... used my gallery wall as background, living on the edge over here. A little bit Texas, a little bit Austin, a little bit West Elm and a little bit Pottery Barn.

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:
