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)!

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!

Baby Blue Lace & Structural Clutch

Hello lovelies!

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 bag of 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….

Maroon Bustier & Distressed Denim

Hello lovelies!

This will have to be short and sweet today because I am battling a migraine headache.  I rarely get them but when I do they tend to linger.  I want to share this gorgeous bustier with preppy buttons and chic color combination  (it is also gorgeous in navy and black).  There is a sale going on right now so use code GOBIG16.  Since there is a bit of chill in the air (yeah for Houston) I added a top underneath for some extra warmth.  This would also look amazing on a midi skirt or flare jeans.  It has the ability to be dressed up and down!

Hunt for The Ultimate Affordable Summer Flat

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone has had a good week! I have missed posts and I am so sorry! I have been super busy as one of the Co-Chairs for Table Talk for the University of Houston. I had a wonderful time yesterday, and I felt so excited to be surrounded by such an amazing group of women.

On a side note – my mom is in town and I thought you would appreciate a funny conversation we had regarding the U of H event.

Me: Mom please bring something to wear to the Table Talk event that I am Co-Chairing. It’s kind of a big thing – there will be 500 people there, many of them in business attire….

Mom: Ok

Me: (when she gets to town) Mom, what did you bring for the event tomorrow?

Mom: I brought this outfit (at which point she pulls out linen pants that would be appropriate for the beach…)

Me: Mom, I think maybe we should go shopping…(We found a lovely outfit – she looked great!)

At event:

Mom: Sweetie you should really tell me when you have something big going on…

Me: (internally) – I thought I did

I am sure you have heard but apparently Victoria Beckham (aka Posh Spice) has made the statement “I can’t do heels anymore” (insert crazy eye emoticon) – she has ditched her stilettos for flats (gulp). I am not quite at that point; however, I am going to Rosemary next week and I am on the hunt for affordable flats. I do not like to spend an exorbitant amount on flats because (not surprisingly) I only wear them occasionally and I like to change them often (to keep the excitement going). Here are my running favorites!

These remind me of the Valentino espadrilles but at one-third the price!

Espadrilles with rock studs (also come in white and coral)

Leopard espadrilles – because I love leopard

Scalloped Suede flats – these remind me of the Chloe flats but at 20% the cost and the concentrated cobalt color is amazing

Fringe flats (online only 40% off with code BRSPRING) – great spin on fringe trend and the Aquazzura flats which are insanely expensive

How to Wear Sneakers Casual Chic

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a good weekend!  I am writing this entry as I am watching the finale of Downton Abbey and I do appreciate the entire series being tied with a bow (even the bow has bows).  I feel very satisfied after six series.  No spoilers here…

I spent the weekend enjoying the gorgeous weather and very casual attire.  I found these kicks and my feet thank me every time I wear them.  They are comfy and chic – a hard combination to achieve!  It is a bit chilly in the morning –  so I grabbed my favorite current jacket.  I pretty much wear it everyday (seen here over a dress).  The key to wearing kicks is to wear a slightly dressed up outfit and then bring it back to earth with the sneakers.   High heels would have made this impossible to run around at the zoo…..you know I have tried that before and it didn’t go well.

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!  I am ready for Thanksgiving – my turkey is marinated, the sweet potatoes are cut, the green beans are snapped, the stuffing is prepared and the gravy is ready to pour….Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and I love everything associated with it.  Being encompassed  by yummy smells, a day full of cooking and lounging, and of course being surrounded by family and friends.  I can not wait!

But once the turkey is eaten and we are all in turkey coma – feel free to be a part of Black Friday!  Here are some of my favorite things from Net-a-Porter (they do have the best sales):

Shoes:  Jimmy Choo Gols sandals, Nike kicks, Sam Edelman Over the Knee boots, Michael Kors Rain Boots, Tabitha Simmons black stiletto, Leopard Flats, Rupert Sanderson Mary Janes, Altuzarra Calf Hair heels

Handbags:  Clare V suede tote, Clare V clutch (ordered), Victoria Beckham shoulder bag, Sophie Hulme bucket bag, Sonia Rykiel leather clutch
