The Future is Female

February 21, 2018

Hello! The other day I found myself shopping at Poppy Apparel and fell in love with this shirt. It’s so simple and powerful. Lately, we’ve heard women speak out more than ever and I couldn’t be more proud. It’s so refreshing to see this change and although it’s not a giant step, it’s a step forward. So back to the tee, when I see “The Future is Female” I realize that it can potentially mean different things to different people. Personally,…

dressing the young professional

January 26, 2018

Deciding what to wear for work used to make me anxious. Okay, it still does, but I’ve learned a few tricks to help me get through that morning routine in a breeze. Most of you know that I’m a high school teacher, but few of you know that I started teaching at the age of 21. I’m 25 now but I feel like my face has not changed and I still get the daily “Omg I thought you were a…

Simple Charcuterie & Cheese Board

January 18, 2018

Entertaining is one of my favorite things to do. I love having friends and family over for a glass of wine, light appetizers, dinner or all of the above. I love accommodating our guests and have been told I’m not too bad at it. So, I’d like to share some tips I’ve learned over the past few years of having my own place and actually being able to throw adult gatherings. Last weekend we had a lovely brunch date with our friends…

the coatllection

January 5, 2018

Hello everyone! Two things you should know about this coat: it’s my moms, and it’s from her insanely large collection of coats. To say she is obsessed with coats would be an understatement. She collects them and I’m sure she can fill up a closet with them. Anyway, she let me borrow this gorgeous one the other day partly because I am the complete opposite and don’t collect coats. It’s not that I don’t like them, I just don’t bother buying them because there is hardly any cold…

santa, baby

December 12, 2017

Santa, baby give me some cold weather! We took these pictures the week before Thanksgiving and it was  probably 85 degrees outside, but somehow it looked like Christmas in every corner of the street. I love how festive everyone around me has been, which makes me love the holiday even more. When I was growing up, we didn’t really have any set Christmas traditions. Sometimes we didn’t even have a tree up. Gasp, I know. It was mainly because my parents would take my brothers and I…

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…
