Jacket: Kerisma c/o // Tee: Getting Back To Square One // Jeans: James Jeans (so comfortable!!) // Purse: Linea Pelle (black version) // Flats: Yosi Samra (all via French Cuff Boutique Houston)

Y’all, if you haven’t heard/tried Kerisma sweaters & knits, then please do yourself a favor and run, don’t walk, to your nearest French Cuff Boutique (2 locations in the Houston-area)! I am obsessed with this varsity jacket sweater – so comfortable and totally effortless to throw on and head out the door. Plus not to mention, I am now a new sworn addict to James Jeans in the Twiggy style, they fit like a glove and distressed in all the right places! And finally, I’ve always heard raves about Yosi Samra flats, but now I am a true believer; a pair of these babies are not only life savers when running around in heels, but they are just so darn cute. PS: the second Linea Pelle bag in a post within a week (see it here); say it with me, in love! That is all for now friends, xx.

Thanks to French Cuff Boutique for sponsoring this post

Hudson+Bleecker // Adored by Alex Holiday giveaway

Back again today for a fun little double post! If you remember, Hudson+Bleecker is one of my favorites when it comes to lifestyle and travel (last see here and here), and today they’ve graciously offered a lovely holiday giveaway for one Adored by Alex reader! Enter below for your chance to win the oh so adorable Etoile cosmetic case (a $64 value!) – perfect for a weekender in the mountains or a trip across the pond to Paris. Store your makeup, brushes and trinkets in a pretty way and quite frankly, I’d say it could even double as a clutch for evening’s out on the town when you’re traveling and space is limited!
