Tassels, Touch of Leopard & Blue Suede Wedges

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor day weekend!  I had an amazing time in Miami and can not wait to share some fun details soon.  Miami is chic, full of amazing architecture and cool art and I cannot wait to go back!

I Dream Of Jeannie

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone has been enjoying the start of summer break!  I apologize for being MIA but my grandfather passed away suddenly two weeks ago and things have been hectic.  He was a sweet and gentle man who was wise beyond his years.  It was a privilege to have gotten to hear his stories about my mom and her siblings growing up.  He will be missed by his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

I did this post right before coming to Rosemary Beach and wanted to share it…..Does anyone remember I Dream of Jeannie?  Even thought the original show started in 1965 – it was pretty much on repeat somewhere my entire childhood.  I think you can still find the show on cable even today!  So when I came across these genie pants I just couldn’t help myself (I also bought them in pink and black – they are perfect for the summer).  These pants are great as a casual pair of pants at the beach (can’t wait to wear them as a cover up), and when you add heels they are spot on for a fun dinner night out with friends.

University Of Houston – Table Talk

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone had a nice and relaxing long weekend!  I have been busy gearing up for Table Talk!  It’s a great luncheon supporting the University of Houston Friends of Women’s Studies — it happens Thursday March 24th at the Hilton Americas downtown, and the invitation press deadline is January 25th. See more details below. Instead of one speaker at the front, we have 50 women from lots of industries and backgrounds, one at each table, leading the conversation.  Past conversationalists have included:  Annise Parker, Mayor of Houston, Tina Knowles, Designer, Cindy B. Taylor, CEO, Oil States Energy Services, Elizabeth Chiao, MD, MPH, Baylor College of Medicine, Dr. Ruth Simmons, President Emerita, Brown University, Jyoti Malhan, Principal, Baylor College of Medicine Academy at Ryan, Carmen Jordan, Houston Market President, IberiaBank, and Andrea Gardner, Longshorewoman, Port of Houston.  Who can resist the chance to be in a room with women with such great accomplishments.

You can go online and buy tickets directly to the event.  Here is the link: https://giving.uh.edu/wos/

Please commit at the highest level you can. All support goes to the UH WGSS program, where they work everyday at building a fair future for us and our kids!

If you’d like to split a table, just divide the table level by the number of guests, and guests can go online and pay their share directly.

Just have them give your name in the comments section and the office will put everyone who lists that name at the same table. The tenth guest is your conversationalist — soon after you register, you will get an email with the list of conversationalists and you send in your top ten choices. It’s a great list again this year — and the higher your table level, the better your odds for getting your first choice. To share a table with someone you don’t yet know, call the office to find a match.  I would love to see everyone come out and support this great cause!

If you want more details about the event please go online and check it out here!

Today I am experimenting with some tried and true favorites from my closet.

Purple and Gray: Leopard & Flares

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone’s is having a good week!  I am starting to prep for my holiday travels and I can’t wait to be off to Dubai and Oman next week.  It will be the perfect combination of city fun and pure rest and relaxation.  I can not wait to share pictures!

Gray is my neutral color of choice and I love finding new colors to pair it.  Blush pink is my stand by color combo with gray, but it also looks great with yellow, black and purple!  It is not a secret that I adore leopard – in all its forms!  This purple button down is a great layering piece (styled here with distressed denim) and combined with my gray jacket and flares it became the perfect combo for casual running around.

Brrrrr….Baby It’s Cold Outside!

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone had a wonderful (albeit very chilly) weekend!  I went cycling this weekend – I had to buy many accessories I never even knew existed like “sleeves”, “leg warmers”, under shell and gloves to go over my gloves) and I bit the big one.  Yup, I fell and I fell hard.  Good news is the bruises are all on my legs so you can not see them unless I am in a skirt.  But I have been trying out various cover ups to make them less noticeable (a bit hard when the one on my knee is a half-dollar size and purple).

As Houstonians we wait desperately for this time of year.  There is something so right about extremely chilly weather this time of year.  It gets me prepared for the holidays – starting with my favorite holiday of all Thanksgiving.  It is time to pull out my cashmere sweaters because chances are it will only last a day or two (current forecast for Thanksgiving is 80 degrees so I will be keeping the doors open in the family room).

I came across this cashmere sweater and absolutely love that the zipper is in the back.  Today I turned it around so I could wear it as a cardigan.  I have worn it both ways and you guys know I love a multifunctional piece of clothing (see here and here).  The soft gray color had me (of course) excited to pair it with pink.  These pink skinny pants might be the best pants ever made (they also come in every color imaginable).  They are my new find and I LOVE them!  They contain the right amount of stretch which makes them extremely flattering.  Also, the fit is perfect around the waist and the length is just right for fun pumps.

White Shift & Hot Pink Scarf

Hello lovelies!

Hope your having a great week!  I am still processing my images from Rosemary Beach and I am down to the final few OOTDs.  When I am at the beach I really love to keep things casual and what says beach more than a white shift?  The dress is a soft cozy cotton and I love the tiny white pom-pom detailing alone arm sleeves and rounded hem.  These details just make the dress sweeter.

Luxe for Less Beach Style: Chambray Shift & Pop of Coral (under $50)

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone is having a great summer!  I have just gotten back from my happy place – Rosemary Beach!  I am relaxed like goo right now.  I want to share some of the tons of beach style outfits that I have been rocking.  When I am in Rosemary I am in super relaxed mode – hence I usually try to keep things simple and easy.  Most of the times I don’t even have a bag, but my hat is a necessity to keep all the sun off my face.

This chambray shift screams laid back beach style to me and it is currently $30 (it is a complete no brainer).  Chambray always reminds me of summer and when in this dress shift form it is the perfect outfit to wear on a hot sticky day.  The easy shift style makes it comfortable to wear in high temperatures.     I added some fun accessories (this coral bead necklace was a staple at the beach – you will be seeing it a lot over the next few posts) and gold flats and I was ready for a day of shopping, lunch and dinner.

Monday Blues Cure

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a wonderful summer! Sorry I have been missing for so long, but I really wanted to take the summer off and focus on my family and friends. It was an absolutely amazing summer of travel adventures and I cannot wait to share pictures with you. I am starting today with pics from Rosemary Beach – or as I like to call it, Paradise on earth.
