I hope everyone is staying warm in this deep freeze going on across the country! I am running out of sweaters – so I need it to warm up just a smidge. I think I may have turned into a bear the last few weeks and consequently I have been practicing my hibernating skills and not posting.
The one positive thing about this weather is – perfect for a fire, a blanket and a good book. I am doing the GoodReads challenge for 2018 and have pledged to read 50 books this year. A bit daunting but I think it can totally be done! I just finished reading The Dry by Jane Harper – it is a murder mystery. I generally do not enjoy these types of novels because I figure them out too easily but this one had me guessing until the very end. I loved it!
After the holidays I wanted to incorporate some sequins into my looks – why give the sequins up? I think everyone needs a good pair of black sequin leggings. They are a great piece to dress up or down depending upon the occasion. I wore mine with a simple black top and added a fringe cropped blazer for a fun element. The sequin leggings look just as good with a basic chunky black sweater, or a satin shirt and a long blazer, or a white button down and black moto jacket…the possibilities are endless! Invest in a pair – I promise you won’t regret it.
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 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 has had a wonderful week! The Nordstrom sale is still going strong and I came across this dress that I have fallen in love with completely – especially the pockets. The pictures do not do it justice. What is so hard to capture is the shimmer of gold throughout the dress which gives it such an enchanting look. I got compliments all night when I wore it!
I hope everyone is having a great week! I just wanted to share a quick post about one of my favorite dresses. It is a beautiful deep red – an almost burgundy color. I love it so much I am contemplating getting it in other colors!! I have owned this particular dress for a while and it has been perfect for many occasions. It is my favorite fit and flare silhouette and to keep the focus on the dress I kept the heels and accessories minimal. These shoes really do go with everything!
I hope everyone is having a great week! Summer is upon us – kids are out of school (or almost out in my case), temperatures are rising and mothers everywhere are wondering how to keep kids occupied. So naturally – I went on date night to figure it out. 🙂
I just bought this amazing skirt for $49! The blue-gray color is so beautiful (I also bought the red) and the length is perfect for dressing up and dressing down. Usually when skirts are so inexpensive they tend to be too short for my liking but this is a fabulous over the knee-length and the sheer bottom gives it a sexy vibe. I wanted to keep it a bit casual so I added a Mickey shirt (who doesn’t love this ears?). To carry my essentials I added the it bagof the year in mother off pearl. I am sure you have seen this bag all over magazines and I have to say it doesn’t disappoint. It is beautifully crafted and the mother of pearl is spot on for summer. I must confess I may have purchased a few other colors….
