Blue Blouson Sleeve Sweater

Sweater: BP. | Jeans: Express | Booties: Vince Camuto

Hey, hey! Happy Tuesday! This past weekend Patrick and I went to College Station for Aggie baseball opening weekend! We had such a good weekend seeing all of our friends and catching up but I did realize that I definitely can’t hang like I used to! Ha!

The first night we went to have drinks with everyone I wore this adorable baby blue sweater and these peep toe booties. I love this sweater because the color is perfect for spring but it is warm enough to wear now. The weather is still going back and forth from cold to warm here in Houston so it is so hard to decide what to wear! The sweater fits TTS and is very comfortable! It is also under $30 right now! Such a steal! I paired it with these jeans and these booties which are also on sale and will be so cute for spring! I wear these shoes ALL THE TIME! They’re definitely one of my favorite pairs of shoes!

I hope everyone is having a great week!!

23 Things About Me

Dress: Free People | Shoes: Steve Madden

Hello friends! Happy Thursday! Today is my 23rd birthday so I decided to do a fun post and share 23 different things about myself that you all might not already know! Also, stay tuned for a fun birthday giveaway I am doing starting next Tuesday, February 13th! I totally planned on starting it today but wedding stuff got crazy and I am not done putting it all together! It will involve all of my favorite things and I am so excited about it! I hope everyone is having a fabulous week!

  1. I am obsessed with sweet tea! I have tried to switch to unsweet tea multiple times but have never succeeded!
  2. Mexican food is my all time favorite food. I would eat it every meal if it was acceptable!
  3. One of my favorite snacks is kettle corn popcorn mixed with nacho cheese Dorito’s. Yes I know, it sounds so weird but I promise it is SOOOOO good!
  4. I am a shoe fanatic and have been since I was little. My mom says I used to ask her to take me shoe shopping every time I had money to spend!
  5. I have three dogs that are my children. Sadie is a lab mix, Remi is a yellow Lab and Molly is a miniature dachshund .
  6. I have a serious issue with other people’s feet and freak out if someone puts their feet on me.
  7. I started showing sheep and goats when I was 8 years old and showed all through school until I was 18. I was heavily involved in 4H but was the farthest thing from “cowgirl” you have ever seen! I actually never even showed in boots, HA! I always showed in Sperries.
  8. I have never lived out of Texas. Patrick is trying to take me somewhere new!
  9. I have to dip anything I eat in some kind of sauce!
  10. My favorite dressing is Ranch.
  11. I haven’t grown in height since the seventh grade. LOL
  12. I started babysitting for people at age 11 and have been ever since. I absolutely LOVE kids!
  13. I am in the process of getting my teachers certificate right now to be able to teach elementary school and I am SO excited to work with kids every day.
  14. I LOVE graphic design and actually wanted to do that when I graduated college but decided that I hated the marketing side of things. Instead I have decided to teach and do graphics on the side.
  15. I only have one sister, Hannah, and she is 26. My poor dad!
  16. I am addicted to the Investigation Discovery Channel. Besides Grey’s Anatomy, it’s the only channel I watch on TV.
  17. My all time favorite show is Grey’s Anatomy. I’m not kidding when I say I have watched every episode of all 14 seasons like seven times.
  18. I’m a total girly girl but LOVE fishing and hunting!
  19. I eat Chick-Fil-A or McAllisters at least 4 times a week.
  20. I have absolutely no rhythm but love to dance.
  21. I’m certified to scuba dive and it is one of my favorite things to do.
  22. I dated a guy all through high school and throughout my first year of college and was treated very poorly. When I finally broke up with him I told myself I was going to take at least a year to myself before getting into another relationship. I met Patrick days after that year had passed. God’s timing is always perfect!
  23. My dream is to open up a dog adoption center! I would absolutely LOVE to be able to take in dogs that don’t have homes and find their forever homes!

Spring Floral Blouse

Top: H&M | Jeans: Similar | Shoes: Vince Camuto

Hi y’all!! I am so excited to be back! Patrick and I had our wedding last Saturday, the 27th, and then we spent the last week on our honeymoon! It was so nice to be away and have a relaxing week with him in Canada and Seattle, but I am so glad to be back and ready to get back to a schedule! I will be doing a full post over our honeymoon and what we did so stay tuned for that! I will also be doing a few posts over our wedding. The whole wedding weekend was an absolute dream! I could not have dreamed of a better weekend. I told Patrick I want to go through the whole wedding process again! LOL! Joking, but not really 😉

Before I left to Dallas for the week of the wedding, I found this adorable floral and fringe top at H&M! I love that it is long sleeve since it’s still a little chilly outside, but bright and fun color for transitioning into spring! I’m wearing a size 2 but I do recommend sizing up one size because it does run small. I definitely could’ve used the 4! Below, I linked a few other floral tops I am loving! These jeans are old but I’m obsessed with them and wear them way too much! I linked a similar pair here!

I hope everyone is doing well! I am so excited to be back as MRS. McLendon! It’s to great to finally be able to say it! As always, please message me or reach out to me if you have any questions!

Plaid Skirt and Navy Pom Sweater

Skirt: Endless Rose | Sweater: Similar | Boots: Goodnight Macaroon | Purse: Similar

Hello friends!! It’s been a BUSYYYY few days! Wedding planning is being all wrapped up and final decisions are being made. I cannot believe we are 10 days away. I’ve been a little MIA lately but I wanted to share this adorable plaid skirt and this sweater! I love the detailing on the sweater. The poms add the perfect touch! This one is unfortunately sold out but I have linked a similar one here! This skirt is extremely soft and surprisingly warm! It is thick enough that you could put on some tights under it with some boots and wear it in the colder weather! It fits TTS and is a very good material. These boots are my absolute FAVES. They are so comfortable and stay up on your leg! I wear a size 37 in them and I am a 7.5 usually.

All my Dallas people, it’s COLD! I have been here since last Thursday because I took my bridals yesterday and have been doing wedding stuff all weekend. I tried to go back to Houston today and decided that it wouldn’t be the best decision to drive with the icy conditions. I’m trapped! Ha! I am ready to get back and get packing for the wedding week and honeymoon! So much to do with so little time. I am headed back up here next Monday to finish things up before the wedding on Saturday, the 27th.

I hope everyone had a great Tuesday! Let me know if you have any questions and stay WARM!!

Perfect Grey Sweater

Sweater: BP | Jeans: American Eagle | Booties: Hinge | Handbag: Barrington

Hey hey! Happy Monday, y’all! I wanted to do a quick post to share this sweater (the perfect grey sweater) with y’all. It is so cozy and looks so cute with so many bottoms! It also comes in white and honestly I just ordered that one too because I love the way it fits so much! You can never have too many sweaters right? I love a casual, everyday look like this with jeans and booties because let’s be honest, it’s what I wear 99.9% of the time! Lol. These booties are sold out but these are almost exactly the same and these jeans are my absolute FAVE.

I’m just gonna apologize now because I’m going to be going crazy this next month! Our wedding is 19 DAYS AWAY! I feel like I have so much to do! Finishing up last minute things, shopping for the honeymoon, packing for the week before the wedding because I’m going up to Dallas a week early, packing for the honeymoon and so much more! I know in reality I am actually caught up on everything but thinking about it all just stresses me out! I am going to do my best to have blog posts every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday but forgive me if I slip up a little bit! I hope everyone has a fantastic week!

Ivory Free People Sweater

Sweater: Free People | Jeans: American Eagle | Shoes: Vince Camuto | Purse: Barrington

Happy Happy Thursday! Y’all, it’s COLD in Houston! All through December the weather was so mild and now winter has definitely hit! I love the cold, but part of me is already ready for summer. The cold is so fun to dress for though!

This sweater is one that caught my eye right away! It’s perfect now for the weather but will also look so cute in the spring with shorts. The tie in the back is what I’m obsessed with! I love details that add so much to something. I paired it with these boots and these jeans for a casual, everyday look! These boots are 50% off right now! I seriously wear them all the time. Snag them before they’re sold out! Also, this bag is AMAZING. This is my 3rd Barrington bag because I love them so much! They hold so much and it is so easy to clean! I seriously sprayed mine out in the kitchen sink after my lotion spilled in it. I can’t say enough about them!

Patrick and I are headed to back to Dallas tonight to get our marriage license tomorrow! 23 days until the wedding! Life has officially gotten crazzzzyyyy. I will be in Dallas every weekend in January up until the wedding and am going up a week before the actual day. I know it will all be so worth it, but wow I’m exhausted and tired of driving and I know the dogs are too! Ha! I hope everyone has a great Friday tomorrow! One more day until the weekend!

Button-Up Sweater-Dress + Favorite Times of 2017

Dress: Madewell | OTK Boots: Vince Camuto | Purse: Similar

Hello! Happy New Year! I cannot believe it’s 2018! It’s OFFICIALLY WEDDING MONTH! We are so excited and SO ready to be married.

I wanted to share this adorable sweater dress with you all and also some favorite times of 2017 with you all! This dress is SO soft and surprisingly warm! I got an x-small and it fits TTS! It is perfect to throw on with a pair of boots like I did and makes for an easy, but super put together outfit! Those are my favorite kind! I got these boots during the Nordstrom anniversary sale and I have gotten so much wear out of them! They are also now 50% OFF! Snag them before they’re gone!

2017 flew by and there were so many exciting moments for me. I wanted to share 5 of my favorite things with you all! Starting my blog was such a big thing for me! It was completely out of my comfort zone but I have already met so many amazing people and have had so much fun doing it so far! My goal in 2018 is to stay on a schedule with it and plan posts and content more in advanced! I have always been such a procrastinator so doing this will be a huge thing for me! I hope that you all continue to follow along and thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting me thus far!

In January of 2017, my best friend asked me to be his forever! This was by far my favorite day of the year and I cannot wait to see what God has in store for us!

In July of 2017, Patrick and I moved into a new house and to a new city! It has been an exciting ride so far! We decided to rent for this year since we weren’t sure exactly what our plans would be. We have been so blessed with the best landlords, too!

My sister got engaged to her forever in November! It has been so fun to get to do some wedding planning together and having someone there to tell you everything is going to be OK when I have a slight freakout moment over wedding stuff! HA!

I was so excited to attend my first blogger Create and Cultivate summit and listen to my dear friends Emily (@champagneandchanel) and Dede (@dressupbuttercup) speak! Listening to them and other bloggers gave me so much motivation and definitely got my creative juices flowing!

My favorite weekend was definitely my bachelorette party weekend in Austin! I can’t even describe to you how much fun we had! You can read all about what we did here! It was definitely a much needed girls weekend and so, so good for the soul!

Thanks for stopping by and again, HAPPY 2018!! Let’s make this year amazing! 🙂
