So sorry I have been behind in posting on the blog but it is all due to back to school madness!
It is still scorching here in Houston but I had some meetings indoors – I took advantage and put on some layers. The borrowed from the boys look is a huge trend this fall. The key to wearing this trend is to keep elements of the outfit feminine. The cross body bag in a girly silver and sparkly skater shoes were the perfect details. Skater shoes are still going strong for fall and these sparkly ones made my heart thump. Did I mention these beauties are $24.99? I bought an extra pair in case I wore this pair out.
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I had an amazing weekend watching a pair of good friends get married – I have not laughed or danced that much in a long time. May Kool-Aid and Bulldog have a long and amazing life together!
Here is a lost OOTD from Rosemary Beach! I love shorts for the beach and I am always looking for new ways to make them chic and more polished. The black and white pattern on these shorts lent itself to a clean chic look especially when I added the fitted crew (this is my favorite white T-Shirt of all time) and belt. These shorts are also great for a more casual look when worn with a loose fitting T and flip flops.
I am planning on going in a few weeks so I can’t wait to share more pics from my favorite place.
Hope your having a great week! I am still processing my images from Rosemary Beach and I am down to the final few OOTDs. When I am at the beach I really love to keep things casual and what says beach more than a white shift? The dress is a soft cozy cotton and I love the tiny white pom-pom detailing alone arm sleeves and rounded hem. These details just make the dress sweeter.

I am just finishing up my visit to Ohio and my nephew’s baptism was wonderful. He had the best temperament and was the perfect gentleman throughout the whole process. Here is what I wore to his baptism – he deserved a little dress up. And extra bonus – the dress doesn’t wrinkle because it is a scuba like material.
I am really enjoying the cool air in Ohio right now – when you come from 103 degrees to 70 degree it feels down right chilly. I am in full baby snuggle mode so this is just a quick post about a fabulous pink maxi that I found while on beach vacay. Hot pink and baby blue – match made in heaven!
I am off to Ohio today to my nephew’s Baptism! I am really looking forward to holding that delicious baby! And of coarse, the cool Ohio temperatures (I am swooning) but here is another fun OOTD from Rosemary. I love shorts for summer and dressy shorts are a hard trend to master. However, the high rise and self tie are a great starting point – and coral is a fun color for summer! A monochromatic look is so effortlessly chic and so I played with shades of coral with peach and red as highlights. The necklace is a great tie to both pieces. Since I am a huge bargain lover (isn’t everyone) I love that the top, bottom and necklace are all under $100.
Yes – my eyes are closed in this pic because I was taking a moment to enjoy the sun, surf and sand!
Hope everyone had a great weekend! Just sharing a quick post from Rosemary Beach – I love the ease of a dress for the beach and this linen dress was spot on perfect! Kept everything simple with heels and beads.

The week has gone by so quickly – it is amazing how much time it takes to get the house back in order after being out of town for a few weeks. I am enjoying catching up on my shows since I have been TV free all summer. I just picked up a show on Netflix called Peaky Blinders. Can I say I am completely ensnared with it? It stars Cillian Murphy (I dig the Irish accent) and is a British historical crime drama about gangsters operating in Birmingam, England during the aftermath of World War I. Check it out and let me know your thoughts.
I bought this skirt on a crazy sale and absolutely love it! It is the softest silk and I love the flirty feminine bounce. I can’t wait to wear it again! I wanted to keep the look chic and simple and since I am at the beach flats (I can’t remember the last time I wore so many flats).
Hope everyone is having a great week! I am still mentally in Rosemary Beach so these photos are a great way to relive the fun. I saw this sweet eyelet dress and fell in love with the hot pink color (its $21 – if they had more colors I would have gotten them all). The color is spot on for the beach and with tanned skin you can’t go wrong. The eyelet material of the dress is also completely on trend for summer and perfect for high temperatures. I added the hot pink slides for a fun summer vibe and I can’t leave the house without a hat so I added the topper and was ready to roll.
