The days in Houston are still far too warm for my liking this late in October, but the mornings and evenings are absolutely lovely – nice, crisp breezes with beautiful skies, and just cool enough to finally break out my favorite coated denim. I love how these pants can elevate the simplest of outfits – the timeless t-shirt and jean duo brought up a notch. I could have been wearing tennis shoes with this ensemble as opposed to the pumps and still feel put together (which I did in fact do to make grocery shopping a little more comfortable post photo shoot).

And yes, those are holiday decorations in that 4th photo, already adorning the store roofs in Highland Village – really?! Apparently Halloween just doesn’t matter anymore?

I hope everyone has a spooky Halloween, filled with lots of candy! Enjoy it this week while you can, because apparently Christmas has already started.




Ch Ch Changes


Annnnd we’re back! Annnnd I chopped my hair 🙂 I know this may seem like a cliche New Year decision, but I’ve actually been wanting this change for quite some time – I get bored with my hair rather quickly. I decided to wait until post wedding for obvious reasons, and a trip back to Michigan so that my ever so talented sister could do the job for me. We wasted no time – within hours of leaving the Detroit airport I was a new woman! I’m still getting used to styling it, but I love it. It’s fresh and light, and have you ever noticed how a new haircut can completely transform your already existing closet and make up collection?

There’s not much to say about this outfit except that I have been obsessed with sweatshirts this season. Can’t get enough of ’em. In high school I probably would never have been caught dead in a crew neck sweatshirt, but I’m sure if I looked back on my school ensembles I would be appalled. Sweatshirts are so fun! From jeans to leather to skirts – the possibilities are endless.

I hope everyone had the happiest of holidays! Michigan was a winter wonderland – one of the prettiest winters I remember in a long time (I know all of you Michiganders hate me right for saying that, stay warm and safe up there my friends!).

Karrin and I are both getting back into the swing of things, and are excited for a new year of Style Sound! Anything new you guys want to see??



Lumberjack Chic


We have all seen that plaid has been super hot this season. My favorite take on it? Buffalo plaid. A big, bold checkered print, that when colored in red and black, makes me look like a lumberjack. I’m completely ok with this – paired with a coated jean, leather boots, and metallic accessories, I like to think I’ve taken the mountain woman look to something that is more polished. And it’s been cold enough in Houston this past week that I have been able to bust out my winter accessories! YAY! This ensemble will be a go-to for me for the remainder of winter.
