its a new day cardigan

November 29, 2017

The other day I stopped by Target for a few toiletries I needed and somehow ended up walking out with this cardigan and pink handbag (along with other unnecessary things). Does this sound familiar? All too familiar, perhaps. It happens to all of us, right? Anyway, when I bought the two I meant to wear the cardigan and bag separately, but something told me to pair them together, and I’m so glad I did. I love mixing casual with dressy. In this case…

Fall Florals

October 24, 2017

The last thing I think about when choosing what to wear during Fall season is florals or anything that gives me summer vibes, because (probably) like every other person living in Texas, I’m psyched about the leaves changing color and the temperatures finally lowering down, even if it’s just a few degrees. Last week we attended a wedding and something gravitated me towards picking a floral outfit. The pants and blouse have the same exact pattern so when you pair them together…

how to wear joggers to work

October 3, 2017

I love wearing comfortable clothes, but who doesn’t right? I also like to look sharp and not at all like a slob, which can be tough to figure out when choosing what to wear for work. I’m a high school teacher, so as you may imagine, I have to work extra hard to look my age and not like one of the students (sad face). I’m also on my feet all day and running around so staying comfy is a must for…

Weekend Getaway: NOLA

September 23, 2017

I have been begging for a weekend getaway to New Orleans for a while now. I am absolutely fascinated by the food, the streets, the culture, everything New Orleans. My husband and I snuck out a few years ago and went on a secret road trip to New Orleans and Florida, and we always said we’d have to redo NOLA. It was so much fun! This year we finally did and had such a memorable time. By the end of the trip we were exhausted. We…

Mintysynth turns 25

September 11, 2017

So I turned 25 the other day and I honestly feel no different, other than the humbling feeling of being alive another year. When I was younger I remember waiting in anticipation for my birthday month to arrive. My mom and brother were great about making my birthday extra special. There was always some kind of morning surprise and then cake for dinner. I remember my mom telling me that when she was younger, her birthday was spent like any other day. I guess her family didn’t see…

Our Fixer Upper: Phase 1

August 30, 2017

Hey guys! So I realize this post is long overdue, but here it is! This will be the first of a few posts about our fixer upper. I want to focus on the different things that happened throughout the 6 intense months we spent working on our house, and when I say intense, I mean really intense. Think HGTV fixer upper, drama, surprises, tears, the whole thing. Now that we moved in to the house, we’ve been taking things slowly and it has definitely…

Our Fixer Upper

July 7, 2017

Last year we were blessed with the opportunity to buy a house. We love(d) living in an apartment where the most we ever had to do was submit a work order online if we had an issue.. it was great, but having something to call yours…that’s even better. Things have changed a lot since we started fixing our home, and now almost one month after officially moving in, we are still working like crazy! We bought what Chip and Joanna…

Blue Ruffles on a Summer Day

July 3, 2017

I had the sweetest time with a friend of mine the other day. We walked around Bishop Arts Districts (what she claims as her “hood”) and it was just the girl time we needed. She loves photography and obviously has an eye for it cause she took some amazing shots! We drank a few drinks and ate some ceviche at Gloria’s and ended our time there at a favorite spot of ours, Wild Detectives, which you must visit if you’re…

cocktails + records 4.17

April 2, 2017

April is here and it’s unbelievable how quickly this year is going for us! Do you feel the same way? It’s a good thing for several reasons, but it also makes me anxious. Here’s why… a. I’m a teacher so this means summer vacation is just around the corner (yay!) b. we’re in the middle of renovating our new house and our apartment lease ends by the end of May. That’s next month! Anxiety feels all over right? Lately I’ve…

Romantic Stripes

March 15, 2017

Hello world! I have gone through what feels like a roller coaster ride with these images. I put together this outfit for a romantic Valentine’s day look and… well Valentine’s day happened a month ago. Blogging takes time is all I am going to say. Also, it doesn’t help when all of your edited pictures are perfectly organized in an external drive and the thing crashes the day you decide to upload the pictures. So fast forward to now, I…
