the lemon print jumpsuit & straw hat

lemon x lemon.

what is it with lemon print?! i cannot be the only one with a minor obsession with it! on a random walk into Anthropologie (JUST TO BROWSE) my eyes immediately spotted this lemon print jumpsuit from across the room. i am not kidding. two second thought process: lemon print + jumpsuit = BUY. okay!

there are certain occasions when i will purchase something at a shocking price tag (aka: regular price), this is one of them. to justify, the lemon print is done very tastefully on this jumpsuit. not to mention it goes very well with the light blue. the material is light and breezy and what tops it off is the sash. i also walked into J.Crew and saw these lemon earrings on sale... so... this outfit was MEANT TO BE! i just saw this to be something i would not come by again and how much wear i would get out of it. i feel like i should be on a beach somewhere with it #needavacay.

lastly, this straw hat via @gigipip is going to be such a summer staple! i had the hardest time picking one hat because there are so many to choose from -- straw, baseball, felt etc... when the Jill straw floppy hat arrived i was thoroughly impressed. it arrives wrapped in plastic (in case it rains!) and the box has a mechanism that protects the hat from being crushed #saynotocrushedhats! the inside of the box it says, "here's to the woman who wears many hats, and embraces them all. this one's for you." all #details thought out and i am someone who appreciates that! the quality of this hat is unlike any other that i own. you can feel the craftsmanship of it. soo.. i went to purchase the Faye boater hat (i was in the market for one!) with my own promo code. LOL #noshame. the next on my list is the Emma! check out gigipip.com and use code "JANNADOAN" for free shipping. good luck picking one!

special thanks to my blogger babe @mrsjenfrick (who has one of the prettiest feeds) for introducing me to GIGI PIP! xx

austin fashion week part 2

one post jam packed with two outfits!

these two outfits below were worn on night one and two of Austin Fashion Week #AFW. you can see night three right here along with a recap

night 1 outfit ramblings: what drew me to this dress was the criss cross halter style and the very bright bottom (not to mention frayed!). the dress was sent to me by @hutch_design and it's a brand sold at Anthropologie.com (and you know i love me LOTS of Anthropologie!!). i received dozens of compliments on this although many thought it was a skirt vs. a dress. my tassel earring collection has grown enormously within the last year but lately, i can't help but find myself ohhing and ahhing at J.Crew earrings. these they are SO LIGHTWEIGHT. the main problem with beaded tassel earrings is that they are usually too heavy. anddddd.... i haven't seen many people wear them so they were a total WIN purchase. currently eyeing these beauties.

night 2 outfit ramblings: i recently became a ZARA addict -- great price points. one of my friends always picks the best things from there! anyways, this jumpsuit went into my cart because of the striped strapless (first strapless jumpsuit) design and the little cut out detail. like i have said before, a jumpsuit always wins and i felt this one was so appropriate for AFW. it's not too dressy or too casual. i paired it with this layered choker which i have been eyeing for so LONG! you will also see the @mollyphillipsjewelry arah bracelet i'm wearing that was purchased at AFW! she has such beautiful designs, and i'll always remember this bracelet because my blogger babes, @byhilaryrose and @heykailymae and i purchased them together. #twinngiswinning! i always love pieces with a story behind them. #sentimental

austin fashion week

#overdue.

Austin Fashion Week #AFW is an experience i'll never forget. i had an AMAZING time. i am so grateful for the opportunity and feel humbled to even be invited. special thank you to @fashionx.co@pompublicrelations for these memories! there were a ton of pre and post parties/events leading up and ending fashion week but you may know i was ill and at the tail end of it, so i basically missed EVERYTHING except the runway shows (insert sad face). i've learned that sometimes, even when you feel like crap, you gotta pull yourself together and GO. it was a jam packed three days of non-stop fashion show action fun. (not to mention the post runway activities. ahem. ahem). the evenings started off with a VIP lounge (who am i?!), part one, intermission, and part two. see some of the collections after the jump. my personal favorite was @shopmilesdavis!

the little black dress #LBD below was worn on night three of AFW. i love discovering new brands and this one happens to be sold at bloomingdales.com, which... if you live in TX it is TAX-FREE!!!!! #hellsyes. anyways, this brand, AQUA, has such great pieces not to mention the price point won't break the bank. the strappy top with the tiny cut out waist with the peplum/ruffle hem was SOOOO up my alley. lastly, i have always wanted a pair of @lisilerch earrings. i always see them on others and they always look STUNNING! what made it harder was that the tassel earrings come in all the colors you can think of! i decided on the disco color looked because it looks so unique. it paired so well and added the perfect amount of sparkle for the last night of AFW. and... they racked up dozens of compliments that night. a confirmation that i made the right color choice!

night 1 & 2 outfits coming soon!

side happenings: spent the last few days in Dallas, soaking up the city and doing what i do best = eating & shopping. oh and while i was up there the BEST THING HAPPENED! @bananarepublic posted me on their instagram! like... WHAT?! thank you to everyone who texted and congratulated me on this. i am still pinching myself!! i had to hold back tears of joy because i was so overcome with happiness. it has been such a journey and every step of the way has been about pushing my boundaries and comfort zone. no matter where this leads me to, i hope that all these moments will always have the same magnitude of meaning.  #blessed.

timeless dresses by camilyn beth

feelin' extra fancy in these exquisite dresses! translates to: #pictureheavypost

a few years ago i stumbled upon @CamilynBeth through fashion blogger, @extrapetite! i fell in love with their classic designs and style. so... you can imagine how grateful i feel to be given the opportunity to work with them today! Camilyn Beth dresses are made of high quality material, the styles are timeless and will therefore be in my closet for years to come. and... they are made in the USA!

the first dress is my fave -- the Felicity. i am automatically drawn to all clothing items with a peplum hem #obsessed?, the color on this one is so vibrant and fun, and the sash is removable #littledetails! i think this dress makes a good office look (surely to turn heads) i even paired it with a navy blazer. the fuchsia goes so well with the navy and i can't seem to decide if i love it more with or without the sash!

the second dress is a strapless dress -- the Rosalina. the silk overlay with the ruffle hem makes this dress extra fancy and the back features a little dainty bow tie. perfect for brides-to-be or a night out. it goes perfectly with my first blush bag from Rebecca Minkoff -- i LOVE the LOVE crossbody #nopunintended. this dress would also look good with a sleeveless duster or draped with a trenchcoat. i recently wore this to a polo match derby event with a floppy hat and received so many compliments! #fitslikeaglove (in a good way).

side happenings: this weekend was the first relaxing weekend i literally bummed around and it FELT SO GOOD! i am off to Dallas this week for a little getaway and CANNOT wait! also, a long overdue Austin Fashion Week post will be live this week!

day to night in a lace shift dress

shifting this shift dress from day to night! #nopunintended

high five to my first yellow dress and my first time working with one of my favorite brands -- @bananarepublic! when i received this lace shift dress i knew i wanted to style it two ways; day and night (one of my favorite types of posts!). i love pieces that you can grab from your closet for a casual day or a night out. in my opinion, those are the most versatile pieces of clothing that are worth every penny! plus it is fun to get creative and see how you can style them both ways. 

i am slowly embracing more color into my life and the yellow of this Banana Republic leaf lace shift dress makes me so happy (also avail in white)! it is a great piece for summertime, the shift-fit is forgiving, and the lace makes it such an easy piece to transition from a dressy to a casual look in a matter of seconds. dress it up with some white pumps and a fun white bag (i love this one with the lemon charms!). wear it casual style with some flat sandals and a denim jacket and w a rattan/straw bag. either way that you choose, you can't go wrong! 

side happenings: finally getting over this nasty bug i've had for almost a MONTH! i was so miserable! #aintnobodygottimeforthat. austin fashion week #AFW2017 was a complete BLAST! i feel so grateful for many things i my life and i cannot wait to share photos and a recap -- COMING SOON!

the ruffled cami & tropical shorts

pull on shorts for adults. #yesplease.

while i have regular places that i normally shop at, it is always fun discovering new boutiques! a recent discovery is the reddressboutique.com -- they have the cutest clothes and at such great price points that don't break the bank. they also have a lot of new items almost everyday and offer free shipping on order $50 or more (this isn't hard to reach). they have a great selection of summer clothes, rompers, swimwear, jewelry, and they also have a cute home & office selection as well -- great for gifts! but the main reason why i like the the reddressboutique.com is because they have such cute colorful and bright clothing which i can definitely use some of! 

this ruffled cami is going to be on repeat quite a bit this summer. dressy camis are such an easy full-proof top because they always go with everything -- pants, skirts, shorts, and you can always drape a cardigan over it as well! lastly, these pull on shorts (hello elastic band, and endless chips & salsa && guac &&& queso), are really fun! especially the print, total vacay vibes, and i should also add that i am on a lilac kick right now. lastly, the block heels are my go-to and the scalloped detail on these and color make it sure pick for summatime. click read more below for more all the color options on the cami and print options on the shorts!

the peplum top & coral pants

not your average pants.

add a pop of color to your work wardrobe with some colored pants! as much as i love B&W, i feel like it's a good idea to throw in some color sometimes?! these coral pants make me pretty happy. and what's better is that it goes with NAVY!! i have worn this to work a few times and always receive so many compliments. i have a hard time finding work pants because i am SO PICKY. most of them are always too long in terms of length and inseam, the material is too thin or too thick/wooly. there are no slanted pockets (don't ask but this is such a huge must for me), there are pleats or the closure is an extended tab. anyways, call me crazy but these Banana Republic Avery pants fit perfectly and meet all my pant expectations! they are also available in regular, tall, and petite and multiple colors! i'm thinking the light blue might be next!

onto the top. well, it's peplum. it's white. and it's pleated. that's all!  

side happenings: for the past week i have been battling a nasty bug. i have not been sick for three years and i'm pretty much down for the count right now. #sucks. this past weekend i was going to skip out on a Derby day polo match (that happens ONCE A YEAR!) but someone knocked some sense into me and said, "get up. dress up. show up." i firmly believe in the power of showing up. i just needed a nudge. it was so fun but obviously i couldn't take much of it, #noregrets. more picts at the end! i am also trying all remedies to get myself better for Austin Fashion Week!!
