Tassels, Touch of Leopard & Blue Suede Wedges

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor day weekend!  I had an amazing time in Miami and can not wait to share some fun details soon.  Miami is chic, full of amazing architecture and cool art and I cannot wait to go back!

Black Flares, White Tunic and Splash of Leopard

Hello lovelies!

I am off to Miami for my anniversary and wanted to drop a quick post before I dash….I know that Fall is nowhere in sight in Houston but I had to get my flares out.  I am in air conditioning all day so it worked out great!  I threw on my new favorite top and this fun tassel necklace and was ready to go!

Have a great weekend and follow me on Instagram for my Miami adventures!

Valentine’s Day: Sequin Dress & Leopard Vest

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone has had a good week! I am still fighting this crazy cough (I sound like an 80 year-old smoker), but mind over matter I keep telling myself.

I want to share my Valentine’s Day outfit today (I told Mr. Wonderful not to peek at the post). I love Valentine’s Day, so much so that I send out a family Valentine’s Day card every year (very much like most people’s family Christmas photos!) Who can possibly resist the idea of celebrating love? And I am super excited because this year I am celebrating the big day in Rosemary Beach (drumroll…our new house is finally done!!!!) In your mind, please imagine me jumping up and down right now….

When I saw this dress a few weeks ago I fell in love with the color and the muted sequins (I also bought the skirt seen here). The boxy shape is comfortable and the length is super sexy. The dress is also on sale with another 40% off online, so it is only $50 right now. I wanted to keep warm since we are experiencing another cold front so I threw on the fun fur as a cover up. I adore these old booties from Schutz – I have them in black and have been looking for them in other colors for awhile but they were sold out. I found this pair – brand new and in the box on Poshmark. I basically swooned when I found them. Poshmark is an on-line community where you can resell your wardrobe – it has everything from clothing to accessories and shoes. It is super easy to use – you download the postmark app on your phone, and take pictures of items for sale on your phone to upload to the app. When an item sells you get the shipping label sent to you and all you have to do is pack and ship. I do a lot of my consigning on my postmark closet – you should definitely check it out.

P.S.  The Serial follow-up to Adnan Syed case is on right now – Sarah Koening is doing three follow up episodes.

University Of Houston – Table Talk

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone had a nice and relaxing long weekend!  I have been busy gearing up for Table Talk!  It’s a great luncheon supporting the University of Houston Friends of Women’s Studies — it happens Thursday March 24th at the Hilton Americas downtown, and the invitation press deadline is January 25th. See more details below. Instead of one speaker at the front, we have 50 women from lots of industries and backgrounds, one at each table, leading the conversation.  Past conversationalists have included:  Annise Parker, Mayor of Houston, Tina Knowles, Designer, Cindy B. Taylor, CEO, Oil States Energy Services, Elizabeth Chiao, MD, MPH, Baylor College of Medicine, Dr. Ruth Simmons, President Emerita, Brown University, Jyoti Malhan, Principal, Baylor College of Medicine Academy at Ryan, Carmen Jordan, Houston Market President, IberiaBank, and Andrea Gardner, Longshorewoman, Port of Houston.  Who can resist the chance to be in a room with women with such great accomplishments.

You can go online and buy tickets directly to the event.  Here is the link: https://giving.uh.edu/wos/

Please commit at the highest level you can. All support goes to the UH WGSS program, where they work everyday at building a fair future for us and our kids!

If you’d like to split a table, just divide the table level by the number of guests, and guests can go online and pay their share directly.

Just have them give your name in the comments section and the office will put everyone who lists that name at the same table. The tenth guest is your conversationalist — soon after you register, you will get an email with the list of conversationalists and you send in your top ten choices. It’s a great list again this year — and the higher your table level, the better your odds for getting your first choice. To share a table with someone you don’t yet know, call the office to find a match.  I would love to see everyone come out and support this great cause!

If you want more details about the event please go online and check it out here!

Today I am experimenting with some tried and true favorites from my closet.

Purple and Gray: Leopard & Flares

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone’s is having a good week!  I am starting to prep for my holiday travels and I can’t wait to be off to Dubai and Oman next week.  It will be the perfect combination of city fun and pure rest and relaxation.  I can not wait to share pictures!

Gray is my neutral color of choice and I love finding new colors to pair it.  Blush pink is my stand by color combo with gray, but it also looks great with yellow, black and purple!  It is not a secret that I adore leopard – in all its forms!  This purple button down is a great layering piece (styled here with distressed denim) and combined with my gray jacket and flares it became the perfect combo for casual running around.

Keeping Warm: Gray Cashmere Poncho & Leather Pants

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  The temps have dropped tremendously and I am reaching for my cashmere poncho.  This wrap feels like a warm hug on a chilly day.  The pale gray is flattering on almost every skin tone and it goes with everything.  I have been getting dressed and throwing it on top of virtually every outfit (I also adore it in the black and birch color – dreamy).

Sweater Dress Trend: Colorblock & Leopard

Hello lovelies!

I hope you had a great week!  I have been a bit swamped with the house in Florida – trying to pull everything together from over 600 miles away is a challenge but still very exciting.

Today, I want to share a date night outfit.  Before I go any further I need to talk about my current series obsession.  I love uncovering a series when it is all complete because then you can go on a non-stop marathon watching binge.  Sons of Anarchy – I mean how did I miss this series?  I am officially obsessed and am thinking I need to join a motorcycle gang and become someone’s old lady. 🙂

The sweater dress is a trend this fall and in many ways ideal because it is the height of comfort.  And I love the idea of one but could not find one which was flattering and trendy at the same time.  This dress is perfect and it can easily go from day to night with a change of accessories.  It is made of a soft ribbed knit and the color blocking is spot on perfect.  With motorcycles on my mind, I threw in some hard accessories like my crocodile cuff and spiked clutch to edge it up.

Mixing Textures: Feathers, Leather & Ponyhair Leopard

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone has had a great week!  I am off to Rosemary for the weekend so I will definitely be doing some outfit posts.  It is my happy place – what can I say?

Today, I want to play with some different textures and this feather belt was the inspiration.  It has such a soft romantic vibe and paired with the leather it became the perfect balance of hard and soft.  The pumps in pony hair leopard were also a great addition to the textures.

And that’s my puppy Sher Khan – he is 12 years old but you would never know it because he is just a glamazon!

Casual Cool: Gold Top & Slouchy Pants

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I just got bad from San Antonio yesterday and I am feeling refreshed and relaxed.  San Antonio has many historic landmarks and such a different vibe from Houston.  I can’t believe it is only three hours away – in so many ways it feels like a completely far off place.  It has many historic landmarks and has such a different vibe from Houston.  I want to share a fun outfit I wore for date night for my Mr. Wonderful.

Two of My Favorites Trends: Romper & Military

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone is having a great week!  I want to share one of my favorite new items that I found at Banana Republic – this military green romper.  The military trend is still going strong this season so bring out all your army green pieces.  The soft drape of this romper combined with the waist cinching belt and usable pockets make it an easy piece to dress up or down.

This shade of military green also looks great with marigold (love this color right now – see my marigold skirt styled here), leopard, black, white, brown and cream.  The possibilities are endless.  One of my favorite combinations is military with leopard – so the leopard pumps were the perfect combo.
