I hope everyone has been having a great week! Has anyone been to their local library? Going to the library was one of my childhood joys (I know I was a total nerd) and I recently rediscovered it. I have started going weekly again and the joy of the experience is more than I can describe. The library of my youth is a distant cry from what I have encountered recently – you can rent audiobooks, download books and even get the book of your choice sent to your local library. It is a book lovers dream…imagine me swooning. I have been listening to the audiobook The Precious One by Marisa De Los Santos – I have never been a big audio book user but this was a great start to the concept. The book was well narrated and I loved the story immensely which was full of big questions like what makes a family, how long does love last and how do we decide whom to love. I loved it!
I adore this pink velvet skirt – it is one of my favorite purchases made from Target and it is on clearance for $12. I love the shimmer the skirt gives when I walk and the color is just divine! I added an army green jacket and neutral boots. The earrings were great for a pop of color and they are extremely lightweight and fun to wear. This bag makes me giddy with happiness. I saw the bag in London last summer and fell in love with it. It has a great shape and the piercing is kinda sexy. The inside of the bag is a chic pink suede which just makes it even better!
I hope everyone is having a great week! I apologize for skipping my Monday posting – to be quite honest I have been a bit off since the mugging. It is amazing how an incident like this can really shake your confidence. I have never experienced such a thing before and am realizing that the incident itself leaves traces of vulnerability behind. It was a hard lesson learned but I am definitely starting to feel better and hopefully will be back to normal soon!
In the interim – I have been attending some holiday lunches with girlfriends! I wore this outfit to a ladies lunch and in the evening swapped out my gold brogues for some stilettos. I came across this skirt online and completely fell in love with the texture and color. I wanted to stay warm so I added this cool and cozy gray hoodie on top (it’s on sale for $13 – I also bought the pink). This top is perfect for the Houston cold front that we are experiencing – I also styled it with some straight leg black jeans and biker boots.
Hope everyone had a great weekend! I have been in the full Christmas swing – shopping, decorating and wrapping! Since I am on the move constantly I had to find some comfortable clothing to do all of the above – I came across these pants and this super cozy high-low top. The top is currently buy one get second one half off (insert swoon emoji). I bought it in all my favorite colors for some layering on and off the tennis court – blush, red and army green. The outfit proved chic for running around for errands and I spot on for the gym – what more can a girl ask for? If Santa is listening….jewelry Santa, a girl can ask for jewelry! 🙂
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I have been enjoying this gorgeous crisp weather and hope it stays this crisp forever (realistically – at least a few days in Houston would be nice).
On a side note I just finished reading – When We Were Worthy by Marybeth Mayhew Whalen. it reminded me of Big Little Lies which I absolutely loved reading as well (and watching on HBO). It was a quick read and a real page turner.
I came across these pants online and absolutely fell in love with them. The black denim and the ruffle were spot on and have such a fun and flirty element to them. They will be great to wear in warm weather as well which is a big consideration in Houston. I added a basic black sweater and these die for mules! I saw them at Nordstrom online and had to have them. The embroidery is gorgeous and the mule design is very on trend and easy to wear. When I am running around they are perfect for slipping on my feet for the glam factor (did I mention they are on sale). 🙂
I hope everyone had a great weekend! I just got back from a quick getaway to Austin where I dropped off my sweet baby girl to sleep away camp. I am not going to lie – my stomach is churning and I haven’t slept much. BUT I know she is having the best time with one of her best friends (that is what I keep reminding myself anyway). I wore this outfit to Austen – it was the perfect blend of casual and chic. It is also great for a lunch date or a casual night out. I have a huge fascination with army green pants. I have skinny versions, wide leg versions and this boyfriend pair might be my favorite by far. This pair is soft like sweatpants and the slouchy fit is spot on perfect! The silky pink top is the perfect touch of girly and the structured tote (or as my youngest calls it “mommy – your stick bag”) is the finishing touch.
I hope everyone is having a fabulous week and staying out of the heat! I have been really enjoying my quiet time in Houston before I take off for Colorado – the city is less crowded and I get to go to my favorite restaurants as often as I like! I am becoming quite the regular at La Table – the lamb burger is out of this world for lunch and do not even get me started on the fantastic avocado and cucumber salad. Yummy! I wore this out to lunch with a girlfriend the other day at La Table – perfect for a ladies brunch (or even date night)!
Hope everyone is having a great day! I am just doing a quick post for a new fun top I just bought and wore to a girls lunch a few days ago. The blue in this top is perfection and I love the subtle pattern and lightweight silk which allows it to drape beautifully. I kept the outfit simple with just a few accessories and barely there sandals. I added my summer staple clutch and I was ready to roll. I have also worn the top loose and flowing over a pair of skinny jeans and it looked fantastic without the belt as well!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer! I just got back from my getaway and wanted to share some outfit posts that I was frankly too lazy to posy while I was on vacay with family and friends. I just love it when I discover a new brand! I was browsing online and came across this ATM dress – it is extremely soft cotton which feels luxurious. It is the perfect brand for comfy chic clothing around town and for travel clothing! I also bought some slim joggers (in military color) which I wore on the flight back with a comfy T and a blazer and they are divine (I got compliments in customs)! I can’t even describe how soft the cotton feels and it wore extremely well on the flight. I threw on my silver kicks (which I wore all over London and Rome) and I was ready to roll!
I hope everyone is having a great summer! I just got back from London and I must admit I am a bit jet lagged. I took a break from posting during the holiday because I pretty much hung out and partied with my friends and family but don’t worry I did take photos! I wore this dress around London while I was shopping (yeah it was sale season) and sight-seeing in Rome – it is so comfy! It is also perfect for Fourth of July holiday and I am sporting it today! I just got introduced to this designer while she was having a trunk show in Houston – her pieces are extremely reasonably priced and fun to wear. This dress did not wrinkle at all so it was perfect for travel. Isn’t it great when you can repeat an outfit?!? But the silver kicks were a part of my every day uniform. They have been an awesome investment and with the fall silver craze coming they will be spot on trend wise in the fall as well.
Greetings from London! I have been encountering some technology issue so I apologize for not posting sooner! I am here for a fun family holiday and the weather is extremely hot! They are experiencing a heat wave – and without air conditioning at most places (my inner Houstonian almost passed out) it gets to be a bit toasty. I have been dreaming of ice cubes quite a bit. But heat wave aside the city is gorgeous and still one of my favorite places ever!
This is a quick post of a dress I came across during the Nordstrom sale that I wore out to a fun girls lunch! The lace is absolutely gorgeous and the color of this dress is out of this world. When I saw it I was reminded of the Self-Portrait lace dress (worn here) but at a much more reasonable price (and its on sale)! Win-win all around.
