Perfect Dress for Holiday Parties

Hello lovelies!

It has been so long since I posted.  I hope everyone survived Harvey and is in a better place now.  I was very fortunate and it didn’t seem right to post during all the chaos everyone was experiencing.  But the city has pulled together, the Astros have won and Thanksgiving is almost here!

Before I get to the OOTD I would like to discuss The Handmaid’s Tale – on Hulu.  If you have not seen it I recommend you do so immediately.  I cannot confirm nor deny but I may have binge watched it in two days.  But that is neither here nor there.  The series is based on the novel by Margaret Atwood which I read eons ago.  I do not remember details anymore which is great because I have gotten to see the series through fresh eyes.  I always love a show where the characters are so multi-dimensional that you are not sure if you love them or hate them.  I cannot wait for the next season!

I came across this dress online and completely fell in love.  I am obsessed with this color – aubergine.  It could be that Houston has finally reached temperatures low enough that it feels like it may actually be Fall (sort of).  But dark jewel tones remind me of New York this time of year – and I so rarely see this rich color.  It is the perfect shade.  The dress fit off the rack which is amazing and the best part – it is under a $100 and very well made.  That is not a typo!  I love the tulle, the backless element and the tea length.  I wore it to a gala but it can easily be worn to holiday parties or ladies lunches.  I also wore it out with a small denim jacket and some stilettos.

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.

Red Lace & Red Bows

Hello lovelies!

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)!

Asymmetrical Top & Gold Belt

Hello lovelies!

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!

Comfy Travel Outfit: New Brand Discovery & Silver Kicks

Hello lovelies!

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!

London: Red, White & Blue

Hello lovelies!

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.

Baby Blue: Flirty Feminine Lace & Ankle Tie Shoes

Hello lovelies!

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.

Pink Blossoms & Shimmer

Hello lovelies!

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!

NYC: Red Lace & Nude Heels

Hello lovelies!

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!

New York Style: Fringe & Pom-Poms

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend!  I just flew back from a fun getaway to NYC for a birthday bash!  The weather was extraordinary and I had a few free hours so I went shopping down Fifth Avenue (insert swooning emoji).  While out for a day of shopping in NYC a few key things had to be considered:  comfortable shoes so kicks were in order, easy to change clothing so knitwear is spot on, and it is NYC so I wanted to be fashionable so I threw on these fun pom-pom earrings!  They are light weight clip-ons and I think I may wear them everyday this week.  They come in an array of colors so take your pick!
