Reunited and it feels so good 💕 Love my sweet girl, I’m so happy to love on her and spoil her this weekend. She’s gotten so big and getting a haircut in the morning! I’ve got a bit more to wrap up for work, but my parents are getting us takeout tonight and we have a date with Apple TV (Ted Lasso, Truth Be Told, AND The Morning Show)!

84 right now in Houston?! Might as well break out the Uggs 😂😂😂 I absolutely love this dress; it’s light enough to wear in Texas’ version of Fall, the midi length is perfection, and I think pairing it with a wide brim hat and clogs was the way to go! What do you think? I’m wearing the XL!

#LTKunder50 #LTKcurves
Happy Saturday, y’all! I just made it to San Antonio and we are already knee deep in college football 🏈 Can’t wait to watch my Rebels on Monday! I wanted to share this summer cottagecore dress is up on the blog today!

Old Navy try-on about to go up on Stories! You won’t want to miss and a lot of it is on sale 🤑 Wearing the XXL in the top and 20 in the jeans!

I don’t know about you, but I love floral print all year long and I think transitioning your florals to fall comes down to accessories! This midi is sold out but I’ve linked all my faves!
Monday, Monday! Had a busy and eventful first day in Tuscaloosa and I’m ready to crash 😴 Size down in this fun plaid printed dress, I’m wearing the large

Hi friends and happy Thursday! I am en route back to Texas after a busy week of travel and I’m so excited to share my renovated living room space with you here on IG and over on the blog today! I am LOVING my new couch and am so happy with the art piece from @minted that I got to pick out. This art piece is so subtle but pretty and I love the statement it makes! It’s called Pink Cloud ☁️💗 if you want one for yourself! I’ve got you 20% off their framed art collection and free shipping with code: THATBLONDEREBELFRAMES 
Code is good until October 7th!

Go after creating the life you want. You’re never too stuck or too old to make changes in your life. Really reflecting on the last four years since I left the classroom, moved to Houston, and stopped caring about others’ opinions. At the end of the day, you are what’s looking back at you in mirror. Make her proud ❤️

When your flight gets delayed and then you get rebooked on another airline and now you’re not getting to Tuscaloosa until midnight 🙃🙃🙃 Gotta just go with the flow 🤷🏼‍♀️ Happy Sunday, friends! I’m so glad I got to stop home between travel and see my parents and Dolly! Ready for a busy week ahead! My top is only sale (and an extra 30% off) and available in regular and plus. I’m wearing the 1X

Workwear Wednesday! How fun is this blush peplum top with black jeans for a business casual environment?! I think the two-toned mules give it an extra chic touch! I also wanted to say WOW to the response y’all had about my advice on Stories for college students and LinkedIn. If you missed my Stories, I’ll leave it here, too!  So save this post if you need to! 💡 Students and job seekers, build a LinkedIn profile! This is incredibly important. Recruiters spend a majority of their time on LinkedIn Recruiter, so having an up to date profile is essential to helping you stand out as top talent. Update your profile in real time to keep your profile looking it’s best (your resume and LinkedIn should mirror each other FYI). You can also put a green filter on your profile photo which lets recruiters know you’re job-seeking (internships, coops, part-time, full-time)! I am proof of this as I didn’t do much on LI when I was a teacher. When I left the classroom, I finally updated my profile and guess what, I got a job shortly after (and have been here for four years now) 💡 Next week I’ll share tips to build a presence on LinkedIn over on the blog - stay tuned!

How it started 👉🏼 how it’s going 😂 @dollythedoodlehtx is officially 8 months old and THRIVING! It’s been a while so I’m giving a little update on her over on the Hello Dolly! page on the blog 🐕‍🦺  Both of my outfits and her pullover are available and I’ve linked them for y’all!
About to start the trek home to Houston and I wanted to share there are actually two posts up today - this dress deserved its own post so you can find it first AND there is an updated wedding guest dress round-up! Y’all loved when I did this last year so over the weekend, I pulled some dang good dresses together and added it to the post!

Wedding season is here! Do we know what we’re wearing?! Over on the blog today, I’m sharing this stunning dress and don’t fret if this one isn’t your jam! I’m working on an updated wedding guest dress round-up!
Happy Saturday, y’all! I got up and scrubbed my apartment top to bottom (man, does that feel good after) 🧼🧹🧽🪣 and I’ve got a new blog post up sharing this cute little dress that, if you’re like me, will wear past Labor Day! There are no rules to fashion and I like wearing white year round! Do you agree? Wearing the large in this FYI 



#LTKcurves
In my next life, I think I’ll come back as this dress ❤️🧡💛💗 How amazing is this dress?! It comes in XS-3X and is also available in a solid. I’m wearing the 1X and am about to hop on stories to chat fit and print! 

#LTKcurves
This dress is a STATEMENT, y’all! Y’all went gaga for it in Stories and requested to see it on and I asked my dad to snap this before I left for the bridal shower 😂 I got the 1X and I’d say it’s a 10/10 perfect fit 🙌 This would also make an awesome wedding guest dress, too! 

#LTKwedding #LTKcurves
Happy Saturday, y’all! I got Dolly off to her groom, and I’m about to head to get a much needed mani/pedi! Today seems like a great day for college football and I’ve got a wedding shower to go to tonight! I’ve got two dresses as options and I’ll ask y’all’s opinion over on Stories in a bit! This dress is $35 and a great transitional dress in this Texas “Fall” 😂 

#LTKunder50 #LTKcurves
Happy Tuesday y’all! Just poppin’ on to give a quick hello before wrapping up my interviews for the day and then getting in bed, ya girl is wiped! Virginia is so pretty this time of year, the leaves are already changing 🍂 Also, I took a large in the Hill House dresses and you can see, there’s still plenty of room! If you’re shopping the famous nap dress this season, I definitely recommend sizing down!

#LTKcurves
Happy Sunday, friends! My mom and I ran around doing some errands (i.e. shopping) and then we came back home and hopped in the pool with my dad! We’re planning on takeout for dinner and watching the Notre Dame/Florida State game (if you’re wondering where I stand, Go IRISH) and watching another episode of Truth Be Told - have you watched?! Octavia Spencer is brilliant and the story line is top notch! This pretty dress is over on the blog tonight and I’m wearing the XL

Thankful for a visit from my mama this weekend 🤍
Happy Sunday night, beautiful friends! I hope that you’ve had a great weekend and are ready for the work week ahead! How absolutely gorgeous would this dress be for a #weddingguest dress?! I love the raspberry color! 

#LTKcurves #LTKwedding
Wearing this exact look right now at the airport except rocking the blue version of this dress! It’s so comfy and easy to wear (available in regular and plus in three colors)! Hoping to get back to Houston at a decent time and can’t wait to pick up Dolly girl after work tomorrow!!
