It's been a while since I've done a 100% fashion-focused post.

Not because I don't like clothes, I probably like them too much, but I've wanted my content to bring something valuable to the table.

And sure, fashion tips are valuable and I love getting them once in a while, but I've wanted this blog to have some more substance. And to be honest, I'm pretty basic when it comes to fashion.  I love my neutrals, denim, and a good pair of heels.

Also equally happy in a great pair of sweats (they still count as great if they're my high school volleyball sweatpants from 2010) and a hoodie.

I wore this blazer with one of my favorite pairs of denim to the first night of FashionXHouston in the River Oaks district.

If you guys haven't heard of FashionXHouston or are unfamiliar, check out their website!  They feature local boutiques, their designers, and their upcoming collections on the runway.  They donate proceeds to a local foundation, and this year's donations went to helping the city of Houston rebuild after the mess dang ol' Harvey left behind.

Not going to lie, I was the most excited for the fried mac n' cheese balls and a few glasses of wine.  OK, and a few cocktails outside too.  They were free, you probably would've done the same.

I love this blazer because it's simple.  Black with a single clasp, but the sleeves have just enough fun in them to make me feel like I bought a super fashionable piece.

Plus, it comes in red, which would look BOMB for a holiday party.  I might have added it to my cart already.

I'd dress this up with a skirt and turtleneck or solid tank, but for the show I wore it with my favorite lace bralette from Gooseberry Intimates.

I paired it with my favorite Topshop jeans (high-waisted, of course) and a simple pair of Steve Madden heels.

And voila, rockin' a Forever 21 to a fashion show in River Oaks.  Because we're ballin' on a budget, and the blazer still made a statement!
