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 bagof 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….
Hope everyone has been having a good week! Just a quick post today about some of my favorite things on rotation right now – big sleeve top and bow flats! I came across this fun $24 bag and it reminded me of the Chloé bag (seen all over the place right now) and I had to have it. Isn’t it divine?
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Sadly I was under the weather all weekend so it has been two days of NyQuil and endless sleep for me! But before I crashed I wore this fun outfit Friday. I am obsessed with my casual bomber find (best $30 I spent) and wanted to restyle it with pants (see here styled with skirt)! It was slightly chilly so I kept it draped on my shoulders but as I got sicker throughout the day I wrapped myself right up in this jacket. I kept to a palate of blues ranging from dark navy to chambray. I added some neutral shoes and I was ready to roll.
Hope everyone is having a great week! Quick post today – restyling my big sleeve top last styled here. The big sleeve trend is still going strong and I wanted to show you guys how versatile this trend can be – from skirts to jeans! I am off to NYC – enjoy your day!
Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend! I want to share this amazing top that I came across last week – it is perfectly on trend with ruffle front and the linen and cotton mix is perfect for summer time. I have worn this top in a variety of ways already – it looks amazing on skinny white jeans and on flared beige or white pants. And it is currently on sale – grab one before they run out!
Hope everyone is having a great week! I must confess I have taken up tennis these days (again) and I am completely addicted. It is the most beautiful time of the year to be outside enjoying this amazing weather but the the side effect of my new-found passion is that I have been a bit behind in posting.
One of my favorite recent trends is the midi skirt and it is still going strong for spring fashion. It is flattering on all body types and looks great dressed up and down. I have them in a range of colors – blush pink, forest green, grey, leather and a basic black. I have also worn this skirt with a fun sweatshirt and some skater kicks while running errands. It is perfect for every occasion!
I hope everyone is having a great weekend! This is going to be a quick post because I am going to go enjoy this gorgeous day with a round of tennis!
I wore this outfit earlier this week to the University of Women’s Table Talk event – I came across this top online and immediately fell in love with it. In Houston heat a thin cotton sleeve top with a trendy big sleeve is spot on for summer! This top also comes in a beautiful blue gingham print which makes me swoon (purple gingham, and blue cotton – all great for the heat ahead). I added a full skirt and fringe heels and was ready to roll.
I have been fighting a migraine all day today – my post is short and sweet today. Today I want to talk about sleeves – big gigantic, fluffy sleeves! Last summer was all about the cold shoulder but this year that trend has been transformed to voluminous sleeves. They can be found in every possible configuration and I really enjoy playing with the volume ratio top to bottom. They look great with just skinny jeans, wide legs pants and even a pencil skirt. I paired my big sleeve top with a circle skirt and some heels and I was ready to roll. If you haven’t tried this trend yet – it is worth trying and I have included some fun options below.
I hope everyone has had a great week! I wanted to share a quick outfit post today about mixing some more colors with my favorite blush pink. And today it is totally about red – I am obsessed with this color right now! Mr. Wonderful loves when I wear red and the thing is I rarely indulge in this color. Depending on skin tone you have to invest in the correct red tone. With my olive complexion and yellow undertones a deep dark red is the way to go. If your skin is lighter with more peach tones – I would recommend a more orange-red (like this top here).
Spring is around the corner (in Houston it is well into summer on some days) but nothing screams spring like flowers. So cliché but so true. I saw this skirt at Zara and I love the length, the color combinations and the beautiful floral print. It is all around gorgeous and for $69 it is a steal! I wanted to play up the beautiful red flowers so I added a red bell sleeve top (sleeves are all the rage this summer) and topped it off with a neutral bag and shoes. Viola – ladies lunch here I come!
