    FLOWER CHILD

    It’s no secret that I love dresses and lately I’ve been flocking to pretty little floral numbers. I love the ethereal, flower child feelings that a ditzy floral or paisley floral pattern gives off. Whenever I see these patterns, I instantly think spring and early summer. I can imagine picnics in the canyon surrounded by blooms, walking on the beach on a warm afternoon and just sitting out under a tree watching the kiddos play. I think the season…

      SPRING DRESSES FOR EVERY BUDGET + A GIVEAWAY

      It’s no secret that I love wearing dresses for every season but there is something so refreshing about a spring dress. I think the warmer weather and sunshine make all the difference. Whether it’s floral patterned or a simple sleeveless maxi, I just love the freshness of spring dress styles. I tend to lean towards more casual simple dresses that I can dress up with heels or wear to multiple occasions. I love a little black maxi dress for…

        CLUTCH CRUSH

        I’ve been crushing on clutches in a major way lately. Maybe it’s my need to feel stylish and chic again and less like a bag lady with my giant diaper bag. As a mom, the most impractical bag to carry is a clutch, especially one with no straps! Holding something other than a tiny little hand seems so foreign but I absolutely love the times that I can get a way with only taking the few items I truly…

          SPRING STYLE | SHOPBOP SALE

          It’s that time of year again… one of my favorite sales is live and there are so many good grabs for your spring style! I love the ShopBop sale even more than the Nordstrom sales and most all other stores! I like to stock up on basics and a few fun pieces for the upcoming seasons. I rounded out some of my favorite spring pieces from things I currently own and things I’m currently coveting and am sharing with…

          PACKING FOR PALM SPRINGS | THOUGHTSBYBRANDI.COM

            PACKING FOR PALM SPRINGS

            I’m heading out to Palm Springs this weekend for 5 days for a photography retreat with some of my favorite photography friends. I’m so excited but with the mood swings that SoCal weather has been having, I’m finding it so difficult to pack. When I think of Palm Springs, I think of color and mod-architecture, Palm Trees and bougainvillea lined streets, sunshine and cacti, so much cacti… I don’t think of 40 degree temps at night and chilly pools…

              WILD WEST TRENDING

              They say, you can take the girl out of Texas but you can’t take the Texas out of the girl. While I’ve adapted to Southern California and left the Texas heat behind, my southern roots still run deep. George straight is a nightly staple in our house and two stepping through the living room with Easton is a favorite past time of mine. Place a Texas sized steak in front of me and I’ll devour it. Oh and there’s…

              IMPULSE BUYS | 3 RECENT STYLE MISHAPS

                IMPULSE BUYS | 3 RECENT STYLE MISHAPS

                Style mishaps and impulse buys happen to the best of us. I strive to live off of a ‘fewer, better things’ mentality but no one is safe from the occasional impulse buy. I love following bloggers and influencers and I can be easily swayed into purchasing something, especially if it’s a brand I love or an insanely good deal, or if several of my favorite bloggers promote the item. I love seeing how they style the item.
                This year, I…
