I hope everyone had a great weekend! I am a bit behind because my mom is in town and I am just being lazy with her (best fun ever). I wanted to share a quick post on my travel outfit to Miami. I am always cold so I am always looking for a fun lightweight jacket to keep me warm especially on airplanes. This bomber jacket is a gorgeous blue/gray color and it did not wrinkle at all. It is the gift that kept on giving! I added flares, my new favorite earrings (big statement earrings are having a HUGE moment) and some fun sunnies and I was ready to travel!
Hope everyone has been having a good week! Just a quick post today about some of my favorite things on rotation right now – big sleeve top and bow flats! I came across this fun $24 bag and it reminded me of the Chloé bag (seen all over the place right now) and I had to have it. Isn’t it divine?
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Sadly I was under the weather all weekend so it has been two days of NyQuil and endless sleep for me! But before I crashed I wore this fun outfit Friday. I am obsessed with my casual bomber find (best $30 I spent) and wanted to restyle it with pants (see here styled with skirt)! It was slightly chilly so I kept it draped on my shoulders but as I got sicker throughout the day I wrapped myself right up in this jacket. I kept to a palate of blues ranging from dark navy to chambray. I added some neutral shoes and I was ready to roll.
Hope you had a great week! I came across this bomber jacket this week and fell in love! It is a light weight chambray and perfect for cold restaurants in Houston and I cannot wait to wear it with pants (insert swooning emoji here). Best part of all…..it is under $30!
I wanted to dress it up for a ladies luncheon so I added a full skirt and some platform heels. Isn’t it wonderful when the party favor is a book and seeds to plant? I am dying to read this and then I am going to watch the movie with Michael Fassbender (he’s kind of dreamy).
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I just got back from a quick trip to Rosemary Beach. The weather was amazing with daily blue skies. I also got to play some great tennis and have fabulous dinners. I am always on the lookout for the perfect pair of shorts – when I came across these in NYC for under $20 I scooped them up immediately. I love them so much I bought all the colors online after I got home. They are a very lightweight cotton and I adore the high waist and paper bag cinching. Yellow in all its shades (remember my marigold here) is extremely popular this spring and it goes great with blue. I added the fun bib necklace and I was ready to roll!
Hope everyone is having a great week! Quick post today – restyling my big sleeve top last styled here. The big sleeve trend is still going strong and I wanted to show you guys how versatile this trend can be – from skirts to jeans! I am off to NYC – enjoy your day!
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!
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.
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.
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!
