I can’t believe that two of our three trips this month are already in the books! The first one was in Dallas for the RewardStyle conference, and this weekend we were in Dallas again celebrating my sister, Katherine, and her fiancé, Powell, at their engagement party. It was the first real wedding event and made everyone realize how soon their actual wedding will be here! The party itself was hosted by my parents’ friends and was absolutely beautiful! The warm weather only added to the night!

This week, I’m back to the grind before we leave town again on Thursday. I think I’ve mentioned it, but I’m working on a big project right now that’s scheduled (hopefully) to launch soon. It’s been taking up a lot of my time, but I’ve enjoyed getting to do a little bit of design work for it and also collaborate with my friend Jess to make it happen. I’ll be sharing a little bit more about it on Wednesday’s Blog Better post, so stay tuned!

During our busy work days, I’ve been wearing outfits like this one that consist of simple pieces like blue jeans, or in this case a denim skirt, and a white top. It’s a simple outfit, but a classic and adding a neck scarf has been my new favorite trend!

A neck scarf can take a basic outfit and gives it a whole lot of personality! The first time I tried this, I was a little unsure of how to wear a neck scarf. I hadn’t quite mastered how to tie it, but this time I think I did a better job as it looked more chic and Parisian, and much less like a neck brace.

It also made me reminisce about the trip to Paris (now I’m thinking about baguette sandwiches) that Rob and I took a few years ago. We went in the winter and it was so beautiful and magical! Since then I’ve been dreaming about going back in the summer. Personally I think it’d be pretty amazing to rent an apartment for a month and just pretend we were locals — too bad we don’t speak French!

Have you tried the neck scarf trend? How do you like to dress up simple outfits?
