Nars Andy Warhol Polish Collection

Holy gorgeous! I was so excited when I opened my email in box this morning and saw this collection starting back at me. I'm one of those girls who changes my nail polish every other day or so (much to the dismay of my husband) and I love having a wide range of choices on hand. I'm pretty sure I'd wear each and every one of these pretty hues but especially that citrine, teal and black. Purchase at

As a girl from Southern Louisiana I know how devastating a hurricane can be. To homes. To businesses. To families. and to Communities. It can take years to rebuild what was destroyed and often cannot be done alone.

So I'm thrilled to see a collaboration called Print Aid NYC responding to Hurricane Sandy's New York City visit. Print Aid NYC offers limited edition posters for $30, with 100% of their proceeds going to the Mayor's Fund for Hurricane Relief. If you're interested in some of their gorgeous goods though you have to hurry- the sale officially ends December 2, 2012.

An ode to the wrap dress

They say that in North Texas if you don't like the weather to just wait a day and boy is that the truth. This time of year, it's especially valuable to layer since it's not uncommon to start your morning at 40 degrees and reach 82 by lunchtime. On non-court days, one of the simplest outfits for me to wear is a wrap dress. I find that they are flattering on most figures, simple to dress up or down and offer good layering opportunities.


You probably won't see me post many Old Navy pieces here, but today's Stylish Steal was just too good to pass up. Clocking in at just $30.00 it's available in plum, blue (as shown), black and several print options and good enough rating that I'd be willing to give it a shot. Enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We have so much to be thankful for, but for now we're going to enjoy a beautiful Louisiana day full of family and friends.

My favorite work bag

As a family lawyer, I'm in Court a LOT. So for me it's invaluable to have all of my must have items in a convenient location- cue the work bag. After several trials and errors, my favorite work bag of all time is the T.T. from Lo and Sons

                              The T.T.

The T.T. is made of a high quality nylon material with very sturdy leather straps. It's so lightweight that it's a breeze to carry every day. My favorite part though is the gorgeous lavender interior that is loaded with convenient storage. I've had my bag since July and truly love it. 

Here's to easier, more organized mornings!

Giving in Style

As we gear up for the holiday season, Black Friday and seasonal ads are taking over my mailbox! As a girl who loves gift giving, this is traditionally one of my favorite times of year- so many sparkly baubles, pretty packages and surprises for friends. There will be plenty of Stylish Steal posts coming, but this holiday season I'd also like to challenge you to focus on charitable giving.

My husband and I have always been non-profit minded, but when we learned that his company matches charitable donations we knew we needed to maximize our giving opportunities. If you live in the DFW metroplex, one of the easiest ways to do so is the Greatest Gift Catalog. The catalog is a collection of non-profit giving opportunities in the DFW region and any gift is 100% tax deductible. Some of our favorites listed this year are The Child Study Center, the Tarrant Area Food Bank and Kids Who Care.


Don't think it's in your budget to give charitably this year? Well you're in luck! Many of these groups are also looking for volunteers. A quick search on VolunteerMatch turned up 321 time giving opportunities in the Fort Worth area! Volunteering during the holidays also often offers unique opportunities to include children and extended family members in the fun.

Whether you can provide funding resources or the gift of your time, please know that your gift is so valuable to your community. Thanks for considering your community as a worthy recipient of something special this holiday season.

Surviving Winter: Fleece Lined Tights

I am not a 'winter' person, so anytime I find cozy + professional basics you'd better believe I'm snapping them up. A few years ago I was introduced to the idea of fleece lined tights and it has totally improved my outlook on walking from my office to the Courhouse on chilly mornings. I've purchased several pair of the Plush brand from Bare Necessesities and have be very pleased with their quality. If you're looking for a lower price point to try out, Urban Outfitters is carrying an option that retails for just $18 this season.

Stay cozy my friends,



Winter has finally come to Texas!


A very happy and brisk Texas Monday to ya'll!

New art work!

If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.
Edward Hopper

My husband and I have had the great fortune of building our own little art collection over the years- one which turns our yellow house into a home. Our selections are a reflection of our travels, our circumstances and our desire to support the greater arts community. 

This weekend, we participated in Campfire's 28th Annual Artist Christmas (more on the attire later) which raises funds for their amazing programs. I am thrilled that we took home 'Untitled' by Rachel Bounds. It's a gorgeous addition to our collection and one that we're proud to display.





Welcome to my Evidencing Style! I hope to document inspired work outfits, fabulous finds and tips to make your work-life balance. Enjoy!
