Hiatus For Work

I'm all about the work/life balance, and sometimes you just need to stop and focus on work. April and most of May have been so incredibly busy! Here's what I've been up to in photos:

Austin, Texas Court House

In April we traveled to Austin, TX (home!) to shoot our S/S17 line. I'm so lucky to work for a company that lets me travel home for work. This was an amazing trip!

5th Street, Austin

Juan Pelota Coffee

Royal Blue Grocery

The amazing Alexandra Valenti, shooting for SOREL

My parents came down from Dallas and stayed in Austin for a night, once we were done shooting. I was so happy to get to spend a full day in Austin, going back to all of my favorite restaurants and shops. 

Alea, our producer at Torchy's Tacos on South Congress.

I could've eaten here every.single.day.

Shops on South Congress.



After hanging out in Austin, I headed to Dallas with my mom and dad for the rest of the weekend.

Exploring Bishop Arts District in Dallas.



Had to grab an authentic Italian style coffee at the Farmer's Market in downtown.

I wanted to scoop up every plant at the Farmer's Market and take them home with me!

I'd seen lots of bloggers photograph in front of this wall during the RewardStyle Conference, so I had to bookmark and add to my list of must-hit spots.

This art piece is literally to the right of the wall above! So cool!

More Deep Ellum walls.

After returning home, you've got to spend hours downloading, organizing, and editing photos you took for use in future seasons. Eventually work took over and blogging took a backseat to all the laydowns and shoefies I like to produce for the SOREL social media channels. (Totally not complaining--it takes over because my job hardly ever feels like work to me!)





I hope you enjoyed catching up via photos! Work has finally mellowed out a tiny bit so I will get back to my regular posting schedule. If you want to keep up with the day-to-day, make sure to follow me to Snapchat!

70's Vibes





I think the last time I wore flared jeans was 2001 :) However, we all know the 70's trend is back...especially since festival season is here. I love being able to switch up my usual look of skinny jeans or tights and swap in a pair of comfy wide leg pants. These SOREL Joanie Lace Wedges are also PREFECT and add just enough height so you're not walking all over your pants! (I'm 5'4", and denim length can sometimes be an issue.) I love this top, but for whatever reason I've only been able to find it in-store at F21. If you sign up for LIKEtoKNOW.it and like this photo on Instagram, I've made sure to link a few that are similar.

Don't forget if you want a free month of designer sunglasses like the ones you see here, sent right to your door, sign up at ditto.com and use the code TORILESIKAR at checkout!

Stonehenge aka Washington State


Cuero Papel Backpack // Old Navy Sweatshirt // Jeans // SOREL Boots // SOREL Boots (available this fall!)

Last weekend Ryan and I traveled to Ellensburg, WA for a track meet and boy were we SO surprised with what we saw along the way! Neither one of us has any idea that the drive would be filled with such sweeping views of the countryside AND a replica of Stonehenge, IRL!


I got this sweatshirt at Old Navy when I visited my family in Dallas the weekend before and I LOVE it because it's a little souvenir from home that I can wear with me anywhere. I also took my new CueroPapel&Tijera mochila (Spanish for backpack) along for the weekend. I've never really carried backpack purses, only backpacks when traveling. I can definitely say this piece was a lifesaver! I was able to put all my things in it for a day at Ryan's track meet (iPad, snacks, sunglasses, lipgloss, keys, wallet, and more!). I'm also obsessed with the color! I would totally recommend this piece if you're traveling. It's always great to have a backpack or cross body that can hold everything you'll need for the day.






I had no idea there was such beautiful countryside just outside of Oregon!

Pink Madewell Sweater







Longer days have arrived and it seems like everyone is in such a great mood, simply because of the sunshine. My favorite part about this time of year is that we've got a good few hours (after spending all day in the office) to enjoy being outside...and no rain!

Anyone else have that issue where you purchase something at the store- and it fits. But, somehow, when you get home it doesn't fit anymore? Well, that exact thing happened with the sweater above. A quick fix is to layer smaller tops with a longline shirt. I love this one because it's a bit gauzy and gives a nice feminine touch.

Wine Not Wide-Leg






I am a skinny jeans/legging/tights girl through and through. However, when I was browsing around F21 a few weeks ago, I had to grab this pair of wide-leg pants. Talk about comfortable! These are the next best thing to wearing pajamas in public. They're a bit long for me so I paired them with the SOREL Joanie Mesh Wedges for a little bit of height. 

I'm also loving this Loren Hope statement necklace. If you want your own, be sure to head to Rocksbox.com and use my code torilesikarxoxo at checkout for a free month!

I'm With The Band






Lately, I've been all about spring tones, open toe shoes, and snuggly sweaters. I love this time of the year when I get to switch up my wardrobe, pull out my favorite tees, and lighten up on the coat situation. This H&M cardigan is on major sale and pretty much goes with everything and anything. I love pairing comfy styles with these new Joanie Mules by SOREL. They weren't a style that I was attracted to at first sight, but love wearing them around the office and on the weekends for a casual look.

SOREL x Girls Inc.




This weekend our team from SOREL attended the Power of the Purse auction hosted by Girls Inc. Girls Inc. inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold- providing them with life-changing experiences and solutions to the unique challenges girls face. It was so nice to have my coworkers, all dressed up, and in one place for an evening. I'd never been to an auction before, but we all had such a great time. I think we enjoyed the step and repeat the most :)
