Here is the event link if you live in the area and are interested in attending. I can't wait to meet some of you tomorrow!

    Welcome to Texas and to one of the best cities in the world....hope you enjoy your are dressed perfect for Austin!!

  2. J- I know you are busy in Austin, but I need your advice. I have been searching for a brown leather crossbody bag for a while, do you know of places that would have one for under $100? I love your neiman marcus last call bag, I know its over $100, but it is such a good deal how can you pass it up? Anyway, if you have any suggestions on where to find one, that would be great. Also, are they even still in style? I'm afraid I've missed the bost. Thanks for your help and enjoy your time in Austin!

  3. I love the close up. Sometimes it's hard to see the details!

  4. Beautiful dress and I love it with the leather jacket! Have fun in Austin!!

    Oh my gosh, those earrings go perfectly with that dress fabric! Love it! Have a fun weekend!

  8. Love this little ensemble,
    those earrings are so cute!! It is hard for me to make my
    dress look good for every day but, I love how you paired it with a leather jacket!

    Thanks Cara

  9. I love maxi dresses! And I hadn't thought about pairing it with a leather jacket though! Great idea.

    @2364a44a6baa8ac73fecff5c55b4faa4 I paid $115 for that bag, is that too much? I ask because the Neiman Marcus Last Call website does 40% off promos all the time, so you should be able to get it for that price or even a little less. I'm in love with that bag - and I don't plan on not wearing cross bodies anytime soon. They are SO convenient for shopping and running errands for when you need both hands! (and they are cute to boot)

    Kimberly, it's been in the 90's in Orlando for weeks already but the Austin weather was so perfect and beautiful today!! :-)

  12. I tried looking on the website and didn't see any I liked or they were over $250. If you see one like yours on the website will you let me know? Thanks for all of your great advice and inspiration J!

    @2364a44a6baa8ac73fecff5c55b4faa4 They still have my same bag. It's $170 now, but wait for when they put it at 50% off and it should be about $130 or less!

  14. Since you are always on the go, what do you recommend for luggage/bags?

    @e247ce5c26ce918e10c45a4583eeb3ae I bought my luggage at TJ Maxx years ago because I liked the print (it's a light gray plaid). I wouldn't choose based on color going forward though - for one, you can see any dirt easily because it's a light color fabric, and also the bags are very heavy when empty. So I would say my advice is to buy something really lightweight and in a dark color!
