Because I’m home a lot, I love no-fuss tops. Silky embellished tops are fun for a date night, but just not realistic for every day in the life of Katey. I’m constantly sitting at my desk, at the kitchen table or even the couch while I write and respond to e-mails. Comfort that looks dressier is what I need, because otherwise I look like a total ragamuffin that doesn’t know where to purchase an iron.

These jeans are my favorite pair in my entire closet! They are so soft and the cut fits my legs perfectly. I am always rolling or cuffing my jeans because I haven’t found a tailor in Fort Worth that doesn’t want to bankrupt me. I’ve also worn not been able to take off this cuff by Goldenstrand Jewelry. One of my girlfriends back in Dallas is the cuff queen and I’ve never found one to wear every day. This one is made out of the perfect material that fits your wrist without being too bulky! I wanted to balance the turquoise with some pink-my idea of balance at least! These by Dee Keller have a great heel that isn’t too ridiculous, but doesn’t fall in the kitten category. Even better news? They are 25% off right now with code FRIENDSANDFAMILY2016 at checkout here!

This top from French Connection was an NYC buy and I love how the structure makes it seem much more put together than what it actually is. I couldn’t find exact online, however this is incredibly similar. I’ve worn this for date nights, errands and Netflix marathons and it’s safe to say it worked on all occasions.

Speaking of Netflix, let’s have a chat. What do you watch?!

For the past month or so, I’ve been watching Damages. If you like crime, suspense or law it’s definitely got all three components. However, it puts my anxiety through the ROOF. My mom and I love suspenseful shows, but somehow this one bothers me. It’s probably got something to do with the fact her fiancé is murdered [I’m not spoiling anything, that is in the first episode!] and I’m still mourning the fact they never got married.

Do you have any Netflix favorites?! I feel as if I’ve watched the staples: One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl, Etc. Clearly, I need something a little light hearted, but just as addicting!

    Jane the Virgin is fun. I also enjoyed The B in Apt 23 (Kristen Ritter made it worth the watch) tho I didn’t enjoy season 2 as much as 1.

    First of all- i looovveee you and your blog. Seriously the highlight of my morning! Have you watched Jane the Virgin? The title and plot line sounded so silly to me, but after episode 4 I couldn’t stop. It’s so light-hearted, funny and entertaining. Definitely recommend!

    I think you should check out the show “Chuck!” It’s lighthearted but has some intrigue, crime solving, and humor. My husband and I watched it right after we got married. One of the last seasons got a little bit slow but it was totally worth it to see the show’s grand finale.

    I feel the same about Damages! Check out unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Hart of Dixie. Super fun shows and very addicting as well.

    And I love your outfit. I haven’t been to French Connection in a while, but I will have to check it out.

  11. Netflix is a staple in our home. I would recommend The West Wing, Parenthood, Gilmore Girls or Lost! Since my home is overrun with boys (I’m the only female), I get drug into shows like Arrow or the Flash. I do enjoy them but I also have no other choice sometimes. When I do get time by myself I love going back and watching Friends, I could watch it again and again, my husband is not a fan lol!

    Anyway, I love this look, it’s perfect for me when I’m running around with my boys, doing errands etc.

    I’m loving the cuff as well! The turquoise goes so well!

    I agree with everyone above! Orange is the New Black is amazing (nothing like the book, so be prepared lol) Jane the Virgin is sweet and romantic and will make you want to put your mom on speaker so you can watch the show together. 😉 Daredevil is actually amazing as well! Nothing like the movie (sorry Ben..but we all know that film was not your best…)

    Another goodie is Broadchurch. It’s a series from the UK. The American version is Gracepoint but is pretty eh. Broadchurch has very short seasons but is AMAZING. Caps intended! If we were brunching I would reach across the table and squeeze your hand to emphasis the amazing-ness!! If you watch no Broadchurch 🙂

    Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt rocks, Chelsea Does was interesting but my favorite that I’m so sad AMC cancelled is The Killing (starring Mireille Enos from ABC’s The Catch) It’s pretty dark (think raining in Seattle 24/7) but super intriguing & not too scary/suspenseful

    I’m obsessed with your cuff! It’s beautiful!

    As for Netflix, I am a creature of habit. I’ll re-watch my “go-to’s” (The Office, How I Met Your Mother, Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl, etc.) until I’m blue in the face. I definitely need to venture out a bit!!

    I. Need. That. Gold. Turquoise. Cuff.

    I keep watching old Fixer Uppers and that’s about it. I honestly don’t know what to do with myself when The Bachelor/Bachelorette isn’t on since I’m so used to it consuming my TV life…. Please tell me I’m not alone in this??

    I love the pink pumps! They really do seem like the perfect heel height!, and they are such a fun color!

    As for Neflix, I’m definitely a Grey’s Anatomy fan! Between the drama, medical cases, and attractive doctors I definitely got hooked. Scandal is good as well, although I prefer the earlier season to the later ones!

    If you like Damages try watching The Killing, that is a great show that keeps you wanting more! Broadchurch is great too, i also enjoyed Downton Abbey for a change of scenery – the clothes, hairstyles and castles are a whole reason to watch it alone!

    LOVE the color of those heels! Such a fun pop of color! If you haven’t watched Bloodline yet, you must! I would say it’s a mix between a mystery/thriller and Parenthood, odd but soo good!

    If you’re looking for something light-hearted, definitely Gilmore girls!!! Prison Break is great too! Oh and White Collar (absolutely hilarious and light hearted, plus Matt Bomer is great eye candy!) But I still prefer Alias, hands down, the best pilot episode in tv history!! (And it’s got some yummy eye candy!)

    Love this look! I always struggle with bigger jewelry (I’m more of a dainty necklace gal) but maybe a cuff could work for me. If you haven’t seen Gilmore Girls, you have to! My mom and I binged it together and it really is so fun. Also I love rewatching Grey’s Anatomy- if you haven’t seen it, get ready to become hooked!

    First off, I love this outfit. This is my kind of style! It’s simple and effortless, yet looks so well put together. For Netflix, if you are looking for something light hearted then I would look into Parks and Recreation. Super funny and has plenty of seasons that are all on the site!

  37. You should try Mom’s Alterations in Arlington on Cooper and Park Row! She is a sweet woman who made her living in the United States by doing alterations and opening up her own shop. My mom has used her for over 30 years and she is the only person I trust with all of my clothing including anything formal!
