Yesterday I just got back from my vacation, and I can’t wait to share all the details. If you followed along on snapchat then you got the first look on how amazing the resort was. But now I am home with my family, and I wanted to share with you an effortless way to wear a tweed jacket. Since Chanel made it a classic, it is one thing that will never go out of style. This tweed jacket is one of my favorite finds from a very unexpected place (read more here), and I wore it to my intern meeting last week. Check out my tips on how to wear a tweed jacket below.
Woo! What a busy weekend! I feel like I am still playing catch up from our last mini weekend vacation. I have so many collaborations coming up this month, it’s been hard to keep up! This weekend was the opening for Dick’s Sporting Goods in Baybrook and as an ambassador I covered some of their special guest appearances including Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty, and Lance Berkman from the Astros. You can see more pictures of the grand opening on my Facebook page. Thank goodness for this gorgeous weather we have been having lately because it turned out to be a great grand opening! I’m loving this cooler weather and I’m excited to say I even brought out my scarves this weekend. Below I wanted to share a cute and casual look with my favorite camo jacket and over the knee boots. Plus there is a $100 giveaway! Continue reading “Camo Jacket and OTK Boots for Fall + $100 GIVEAWAY”
Happy Friday everyone! Gosh what a week! I stayed up venting on my Snapchat (view story there) about something that has been heavy on my heart lately. I try to be open minded and positive in my blog, but I also know when I need to stand up for something and use my blog and my voice to help this world be a better place. I will always try to be candid and transparent to all my readers so you can get to know me for me. And to all my loyal readers thank you for your continued love and support. Now back to the subject and to sharing one of my Friday Favorites with you, lace-up tops and why you need them for fall! Continue reading “Friday Favorites: Lace-up tops”
What a busy week it has been. I’ve been a little behind on my post, but it’s because I’ve been distracted watching the Olympics. But hey, it only comes on every four years, and I can’t miss watching some of my favorite athletes perform. My top sports are swimming and gymnastics when it comes to the Olympic games, and lately I cannot get enough of Houston’s own Simone Biles. That girl is in a league of her own. It just amazes me to watch her routines. When I was a little girl I remember watching and dreaming one day of being in the Olympics for gymnastics, and though my time has come and gone for that dream, it still lives on for my future daughter. Lol I was so inspired I was doing cartwheels in my living room, and telling my hubby we need to have another kid soon so I can live vicariously through our future daughter. Hahaha I’m going to be one of those moms. I even looked up mommy and me tumbling classes me and Jayden can join next year. My little man is a little monkey and has non stop energy! We could both benefit from the class. But back to the topic, boyfriend jeans, and how you can dress them up for a fun date night look. Continue reading “How to Dress up Boyfriend Jeans”

Last weekend I attended a Pinterest workshop with the best Houston Bloggers at City Center. It was really informative, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to increase their traffic. Not only was it very informative but it was tons of fun. For one of our scheduled break we had an exclusive shopping event at Kendra Scott. Thankfully I was wearing my trench coat and my rain boots, because it started to rain so bad when we had to walk across to the party. With all this rain we have been getting this summer, investing in a trench coat is a must. Plus it’s one of the most versatile jackets that you can wear around. Check out how I styled this trench coat from Tobi. Below are tips on how you can wear a trench coat. Continue reading “How to Wear a Trench Coat – Dawn P. Darnell”

Hey guys! Hope ya’ll are having a fabulous week! What’s up with this crazy Texas weather? I really hope everyone is staying dry and safe from the flooding. It’s been such a crazy busy week for me, so I might sound a little scatter brained. I’m planning a couple of trips these next two months and my first ever blogger event. So stay tuned on my Snapchat @dawnpwinston for my reveal on what major brand I will be collaborating with. Hint, hint, I wear it all the time!

I know with the hotter weather, finding alternatives to denim jeans is a must, especially when you are in Texas. Well guess what I found the perfect summer pants for under $20, and they come in three different colors. Check out my look below on how I styled the perfect summer pants.
Can you believe it’s June already? I can with this rising Texas heat. But that also means time to bring out our summer whites. I found this sexy tassel dress shopping at one of my new favorite online stores Asos. If you’ve never shopped there, they have the cutest and trendiest styles for a great price. And as a momma on a budget that is always a plus. This dress is the best combination of my two favorite summer trends: tassels and off the shoulder. You can’t beat that especially for the price! This dress was on sale for less than $25! It’s really low stock so I linked a similar one here. I bought the XS, because I am really petite, but they also have a XXS available! Check out how I styled this dress below. Continue reading “White Tassel Off the Shoulder Dress”
Who is ready for the weekend? I know I am! I can’t wait to spend some time at the beach with my family this weekend. This past week I’ve been hooked on a new series on Netflix, Switched at Birth. I found myself one night up till 4 am in the morning watching the series instead of blogging, or even better yet I should be sleeping lol. This weekend I’ve rounded up some of my favorite off the shoulder dresses, including the one below for under $50! I found this one last year online and it has been one of my favorite off the shoulder dresses. I get tons of compliments on it every time I wear it. I wore it the first time for family pictures in this post last fall, and I love how it transitions so well for summer! This is the perfect summer dress for a trip to the beach, or BBQ with friends this weekend. Check out my full look and my favorite off the shoulder dresses for under $50!

Since Josh’s Uncle got named the manager of the Ranger’s last year, we have become the biggest Texas Rangers fan in Houston. (P.S. We love the Astros too!) We are so excited to visit our family up there and take Jayden to watch the games. He went to his very first baseball game when he was 3 months old last year for opening day for the Rangers.

With Spring here and summer just around the corner, tassels have become a major trend this season. I love everything tasselled. They are the perfect accessory to complete your boho chic look. Tassels and monograms, two of my favorite things and even better when they’re together.
