Red Dionysus Blooms Bag Inspiration

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I am in a red kind of mood these days (see here and here) and this entire outfit started with my Gucci floral bag.  Gucci has been having a crazy few years!  You cannot open a fashion magazine or a look up trends without coming across Gucci – backless loafers, amazing bags and even the midi pleat skirt seems to have all emerged from the Gucci collections.  The new creative designer Alessandro Michele took over in 2015 and things have not been this hot for the couture house since the Tom Ford years (I am swooning remembering those collections and cherish the pieces even today).

I adore this bag!  It is beautifully made – the blossoms are hand painted on the leather to give it a chic yet girly feel and I love the silver hardware (which is a refreshing change of pace).  I have worn this bag with everything from casual jeans to a night out with Mr. Wonderful.  It is a great investment piece and a real show stopper!

Criss-Cross Comfort

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!  This is going to be a quick post because I am going to go enjoy this gorgeous day with a round of tennis!

I wore this outfit earlier this week to the University of Women’s Table Talk event – I came across this top online and immediately fell in love with it.  In Houston heat a thin cotton sleeve top with a trendy big sleeve is spot on for summer!  This top also comes in a beautiful blue gingham print which makes me swoon (purple gingham, and blue cotton – all great for the heat ahead).  I added a full skirt and fringe heels and was ready to roll.

Mustard Madness

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  Let’s talk about mustard baby!  It is also commonly called maze, goldenrod, sunflower yellow etc.  There are certain colors that are undervalued and mustard is one of those colors.  It is a densely rich hue that is a mixture of a bit of orange and yellow.  The best part of mustard is what you can combine it with – fuchsia, gray, navy (remember this combo here), emerald green and cream.

I was fishing through my closet and I came across this beautiful leopard shirt and this bell sleeved sweater.  Bell sleeve sweaters and tops are all the rage right now.  There are so many good options available right now – I will link some of my favorites below.

Red Flowers & Pink Midi for Spring

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone has had a great week!  I wanted to share a quick outfit post today about mixing some more colors with my favorite blush pink.  And today it is totally about red – I am obsessed with this color right now!  Mr.  Wonderful loves when I wear red and the thing is I rarely indulge in this color.  Depending on skin tone you have to invest in the correct red tone.  With my olive complexion and yellow undertones a deep dark red is the way to go.  If your skin is lighter with more peach tones – I would recommend a more orange-red (like this top here).

Spring is around the corner (in Houston it is well into summer on some days) but nothing screams spring like flowers.  So cliché but so true.  I saw this skirt at Zara and I love the length, the color combinations and the beautiful floral print.  It is all around gorgeous and for $69 it is a steal!  I wanted to play up the beautiful red flowers so I added a red bell sleeve top (sleeves are all the rage this summer) and topped it off with a neutral bag and shoes.  Viola – ladies lunch here I come!

How to Combine Pink & Burgundy

Hello lovelies!

It has been too long since my last post and truth be told I have been slacking.  The rush of the New Year has left me a bit under the ball (or bus – depending upon the day).  I want to share a fun outfit I recently wore to the ladies BAFTA lunch.  I have to confess I had completely forgotten about the event even though it was on my planner (iPhone quirks).  My sweet girlfriend texted me “the soup is getting cold” – I was perplexed by this until her next text “the luncheon?”   So I got up and quickly transformed from my pajamas and ran out to support the Brits.  Considering everything I was pretty happy with the final result!

I adore pink (as you know) so I am always looking for new color to combine with my favorite hue.  Black is an obvious, grey is a match made in heaven, white is delightful in summer and I added burgundy as a fun fall staple.

Maroon Bustier & Distressed Denim

Hello lovelies!

This will have to be short and sweet today because I am battling a migraine headache.  I rarely get them but when I do they tend to linger.  I want to share this gorgeous bustier with preppy buttons and chic color combination  (it is also gorgeous in navy and black).  There is a sale going on right now so use code GOBIG16.  Since there is a bit of chill in the air (yeah for Houston) I added a top underneath for some extra warmth.  This would also look amazing on a midi skirt or flare jeans.  It has the ability to be dressed up and down!

Fall Trends: Choker & Platforms

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone has had a great week!  Just wanted to share a quick post today.  I came across this top and I adore it.  The double panel in front is amazing because it ensures I do not have to wear a camisole underneath.  Makes the top much more user-friendly!  I added a few of my favorite fall trends to complete the outfit – choker and platforms!

Casual Monday: Lace Trend

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!  I couldn’t post Friday because I was playing in the Silver Raquets tennis tournament.  The best weekend to have an outdoor tennis event.  It was cool and breezy pretty much the entire time.  It was a fun event and great to get back into something that I love.

Lace is a huge trend this fall and it is available in nearly every form.  From dresses to tops to skirts.  I love the delicacy of lace and the beautiful texture and patterns that it creates in one solid color.  It is like wearing print but not.  I came across this top and just fell in love with the color and shape.  I also appreciated the fact that the lace top came with a matching color tank top.  It made the top so much easier to wear.  The pink is my favorite but I really like the black and white options as well.  I paired the top with flared denim but it would be equally fun with skinnies or a pencil skirt.
