I had the pleasure of visiting Pouf yesterday to get my hair done by the best braiders in the business! The d├ęcor is darling, the staff treats you like a princess and the prices are fair. What’s not to love? Book an appointment at Pouf’s braid bar for your next sorority formal, bachelorette party or girls night out and enjoy a crown, fishtail or waterfall braid for just $25. Check out the rest of what Pouf can do on their website.

On another note, you need to get your butt to Old Navy right now, because their fall arrivals are so adorable. I walked out with an armful of new goodies including this sweater. Dallas weather was blissfully chilly this weekend, so my shopping trip came at the perfect time.


Pajama Party

September 12, 2014





I’m all about fun pajamas especially when they say things like, “Donuts love me for who I am!” Too cute. Obviously I don’t want to spend a lot of money on pajamas, so that’s why I love Forever21. Everything pictured above is under $15. Happy shopping!

Confession: this sexy leather dress is totally out of my comfort zone. If you read Brooke du jour regularly, you know I typically only shop in the pink and sparkly section. But fashion is all about taking risks, and I kind of felt like a Bond girl in a leather dress and dark lips! My boyfriend thought I looked like a vampire, but we can’t always please everyone with our fashion choices! Have you ever worn something you wouldn’t normally but felt totally awesome nevertheless? Tell me in the comments!

Isn’t this a great dress for the holidays? I know I’m jumping the gun on the holidays a bit, but the deep burgundy color is getting me so excited! I also love the leather-trimmed details for just a hint of edge. Leather is everywhere this fall, and I can’t wait to add more into my wardrobe.
Which fall trends are you most excited about?

I’m so excited to wear fall clothes! However, it’s still a million degrees in Dallas (if you live in Texas you know I’m hardly exaggerating). This plaid shirtdress is the answer to all my problems. It’s easy, breezy and insanely soft! We’re talking pajama soft- holla!
