Hope everyone is enjoying this amazing weather! Gingham is no longer just for tablecloths – it has been transformed into fun dresses, tops, skirts and even shoes for summer. Nothing says summer time like gingham. It is a lightweight cotton that drapes beautifully and is perfect for summer heat. I wore this outfit to lunch and got tons of compliments. I belted my dress and added fun flats. I became instantly brunch ready!
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).
Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend! I want to share this amazing top that I came across last week – it is perfectly on trend with ruffle front and the linen and cotton mix is perfect for summer time. I have worn this top in a variety of ways already – it looks amazing on skinny white jeans and on flared beige or white pants. And it is currently on sale – grab one before they run out!
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!
Hope everyone is having a great week! I must confess I have taken up tennis these days (again) and I am completely addicted. It is the most beautiful time of the year to be outside enjoying this amazing weather but the the side effect of my new-found passion is that I have been a bit behind in posting.
One of my favorite recent trends is the midi skirt and it is still going strong for spring fashion. It is flattering on all body types and looks great dressed up and down. I have them in a range of colors – blush pink, forest green, grey, leather and a basic black. I have also worn this skirt with a fun sweatshirt and some skater kicks while running errands. It is perfect for every occasion!
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.
I hope everyone had a fabulous week! Today I am all about the kicks! It has been a few years of sporty flat wear and the inner New Yorker in me rejoices. Every season in New York I was constantly looking for the perfect pair of flats that I could wear everywhere (and with everything) so my feet wouldn’t hurt. If I was still in New York I would have more pairs of sneakers than I care to admit. I saw these Joshua Sanders slip on sneakers and completely fell in love a few months ago. But at the hefty price of $389 – I just could not make myself commit. However, when I came across these bow sneakers for a third of the price I became fully committed! They are the perfect pair of comfy yet chic kicks. I have worn them dressed up under a skirt, with these fun joggers and even with skinny jeans and a leather jacket. I cannot wait to take them when I travel – they will elevate every look to the next level no matter how casual.

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.
Hope everyone had a great weekend! I want to share a quick post with you about my new favorite designer – Caroline Constas. I love the voluminous shapes in her tops and dresses. It is a refreshing and edgy take on fashion using weightless cottons (which is a must for Houston heat, which is still going strong…) Her clothing has recently attracted a cult-like following and new items sell out rapidly. I decided to balance the sleeves with some volume on the bottom via flares, but this top would look equally good with skinny black jeans (preferably distressed!)
