I love a good rainy day but the relentless rain is more than I can take at this point. Photo sessions are being held indoors until further notice. I wore this out to a quick date night on Friday. I have been feeling extremely girly lately and the current 70-80 degree weather is perfect for skirts (and flats). When I saw this skirt I was in heaven. It is a great length and the blend wool fabric is perfect for Houston weather. I look forward to wearing it with OKB (over the knee boots).
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I had an amazing weekend watching a pair of good friends get married – I have not laughed or danced that much in a long time. May Kool-Aid and Bulldog have a long and amazing life together!
Here is a lost OOTD from Rosemary Beach! I love shorts for the beach and I am always looking for new ways to make them chic and more polished. The black and white pattern on these shorts lent itself to a clean chic look especially when I added the fitted crew (this is my favorite white T-Shirt of all time) and belt. These shorts are also great for a more casual look when worn with a loose fitting T and flip flops.
I am planning on going in a few weeks so I can’t wait to share more pics from my favorite place.
Hope everyone had a great weekend! Just sharing a quick post from Rosemary Beach – I love the ease of a dress for the beach and this linen dress was spot on perfect! Kept everything simple with heels and beads.
The week has gone by so quickly – it is amazing how much time it takes to get the house back in order after being out of town for a few weeks. I am enjoying catching up on my shows since I have been TV free all summer. I just picked up a show on Netflix called Peaky Blinders. Can I say I am completely ensnared with it? It stars Cillian Murphy (I dig the Irish accent) and is a British historical crime drama about gangsters operating in Birmingam, England during the aftermath of World War I. Check it out and let me know your thoughts.
I bought this skirt on a crazy sale and absolutely love it! It is the softest silk and I love the flirty feminine bounce. I can’t wait to wear it again! I wanted to keep the look chic and simple and since I am at the beach flats (I can’t remember the last time I wore so many flats).
Hope everyone is having a great week! I am still mentally in Rosemary Beach so these photos are a great way to relive the fun. I saw this sweet eyelet dress and fell in love with the hot pink color (its $21 – if they had more colors I would have gotten them all). The color is spot on for the beach and with tanned skin you can’t go wrong. The eyelet material of the dress is also completely on trend for summer and perfect for high temperatures. I added the hot pink slides for a fun summer vibe and I can’t leave the house without a hat so I added the topper and was ready to roll.
I am writing from Rosemary Beach – I am in complete beach mode. My biggest choices daily right now are – sunscreen and should I reapply sunscreen? 🙂
Wanted to share some casual vacation pics from Washington, DC. I had styled these culottes previously here and wanted to go casual while sightseeing in (gulp) flats. I adore these culottes – they are extremely comfy and they don’t wrinkle ever! Perfect for travel. I wanted to add a bit off fun so I threw in some pops of red with shoes, bag and lipstick. I have already rocked this outfit in Rosemary!
I hope everyone had a great weekend! I went for a quick getaway to check out the house progression in Rosemary Beach. The good news is they are ahead of schedule – unheard of in house construction but I am not complaining. The bad news is that in my rush of packing I forgot my jewelry so the three outfits from Rosemary Beach this week will not contain any jewelry in the photos (insert horror emoticon). I will make suggestions as to what I was planning on accessorize with the outfit.
I will start today with my travel outfit. The fun stripes and color of this summer dress put me in the perfect mood for the beach. This is an oldie but a goodie from my closet but the real spark for this outfit is the shoes. These are the newest babies to join the collection and I pretty much cannot stop wearing them (as you will see in the next few posts). The color, the south asian vibe and of course the tassels! It is the trifecta of shoe perfection for me. I was actually stopped in the airport three times by strangers (men and women) to tell me they love the shoes.
With the bold colorful stripes and busy shoe – imagine my simple pearl 360 pearl earrings to avoid too many competing items.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I had a great weekend other than the Game of Thrones finale last night. I always read the book first but for GoT I like watching the series and don’t want to know what is coming. I am not so sure about this anymore since I have no idea what happened last night. Spoiler alert – Jon Snow can’t possibly be dead, can he?? If he is truly gone – I am going to be very disappointed (that is putting it mildly).
Today, I want to share my Banana Republic midi skirt restyle. I loved it uptown chic (seen here) but now I felt it needed a downtown cool vibe. Best way to do that – a sequined T-shirt.
