I hope everyone had a great weekend! I am a bit behind because my mom is in town and I am just being lazy with her (best fun ever). I wanted to share a quick post on my travel outfit to Miami. I am always cold so I am always looking for a fun lightweight jacket to keep me warm especially on airplanes. This bomber jacket is a gorgeous blue/gray color and it did not wrinkle at all. It is the gift that kept on giving! I added flares, my new favorite earrings (big statement earrings are having a HUGE moment) and some fun sunnies and I was ready to travel!
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.
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!

Today I am experimenting with some tried and true favorites from my closet.
I hope everyone is having a great Labor Day weekend! I just got back from NYC – it was a quick but relaxing getaway. It is amazing how much the city has changed and yet remains the same. Some of my favorite spots are still there and it was fun discovering new hot spots. But one of my favorite things to do in NYC is shop! I cannot wait to share some of the goodies this week!
I want to focus on the sleeveless blazer or long vest today. I love it! I find it extremely versatile and the (crazy) high temperatures in Houston make it the perfect layering piece to chic things up a bit. I came across this sleeveless blazer and fell in love with the color and its proportions (and it is 40% off for Labor Day). The focus was meant to stay on the long vest so I kept the rest of the outfit very neutral. This would be a great piece to add to shorts, a skater skirt, skinny jeans, and (the fall staple) flares.
