Everyone Needs Black Sequin Leggings

Hello lovelies!

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.

Casual Comfort Chic

Hello lovelies!

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! 🙂

Ruffles & Embroidered Mules

 Hello lovelies!

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). 🙂

Borrowed From the Boys: Army Green Boyfriend & Touch of Girly

Hello lovelies!

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.

Casual $30 Bomber Restyled

Hello lovelies!

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.

Rosemary Beach Casual: Blue Shorts and Yellow Necklace

Hello lovelies!

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!

Hello lovelies!

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!

Mustard Madness

Hello lovelies!

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.

Casual Monday: Lace Trend

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!  I couldn’t post Friday because I was playing in the Silver Raquets tennis tournament.  The best weekend to have an outdoor tennis event.  It was cool and breezy pretty much the entire time.  It was a fun event and great to get back into something that I love.

Lace is a huge trend this fall and it is available in nearly every form.  From dresses to tops to skirts.  I love the delicacy of lace and the beautiful texture and patterns that it creates in one solid color.  It is like wearing print but not.  I came across this top and just fell in love with the color and shape.  I also appreciated the fact that the lace top came with a matching color tank top.  It made the top so much easier to wear.  The pink is my favorite but I really like the black and white options as well.  I paired the top with flared denim but it would be equally fun with skinnies or a pencil skirt.

Striped Balloon Sleeve Top & Black Flares

Hello lovelies!

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!)
