Happy Thanksgiving, you guys! As we speak, I’m in West Texas preparing to eat like no other woman has eaten before (j/k). No, but seriously, this is my favorite time of the year. I love the cold weather, food, family time, and football.

Yesterday, I hopped on a jet plane to west Texas where I’m from (yes, oilfield country), and after a full day of errands, lunchin’, and grocery-buying, I changed clothes and did a photo shoot. It’s all in a day’s work. 🙂

I’m loving this new leopard top I got and these ripped jeans. I thought it would be a great post for Fall. I’m going to link you to a more expensive option and a less expensive option, so you have a few to choose from for each. Note on the jeans: They didn’t come distressed. I actually cut/distressed them myself. 🙂 Just take anything white that’s washable and mark where you want the rips, take some scissors & cut on those lines, then rip em’ and wash em’. It’s easy peasy to do.

There’s really nothing that makes a woman feel more hot and in charge than a little leopard and ripped jeans – she’s modern, she’s got rough edges, and she’s classy – all in one outfit! Get it girl.

Don’t be afraid to rip & roar this season! You have permission…
