I hope everyone is having a great week! I apologize for skipping my Monday posting – to be quite honest I have been a bit off since the mugging. It is amazing how an incident like this can really shake your confidence. I have never experienced such a thing before and am realizing that the incident itself leaves traces of vulnerability behind. It was a hard lesson learned but I am definitely starting to feel better and hopefully will be back to normal soon!
In the interim – I have been attending some holiday lunches with girlfriends! I wore this outfit to a ladies lunch and in the evening swapped out my gold brogues for some stilettos. I came across this skirt online and completely fell in love with the texture and color. I wanted to stay warm so I added this cool and cozy gray hoodie on top (it’s on sale for $13 – I also bought the pink). This top is perfect for the Houston cold front that we are experiencing – I also styled it with some straight leg black jeans and biker boots.
I hope everyone is having a great week! Unfortunately I am late with my post because I was robbed at Whole Foods (the one on Kirby) and I have been dealing with the fall out – canceling credit cards, bank cards, drivers license….a nightmare. The police informed me that this is going on around town – holiday madness! Please be careful of your surroundings and lock your door immediately when getting in your car.
On a happier note – I just finished Reputations by Juan Gabriel Vásquez! It was my first read by the Columbian author and I was entranced. I cannot imagine how wonderful this book was in Spanish because the english translation was fantastic. Inspires me to learn spanish (which is my New Years goal every year).
And now on to the OOTD for today. I bought this dress in aubergine (seen here)and I loved it so much that I ordered it in blush pink as well.The dress was a complete hit! I wore it to Mr. Wonderful’s company holiday party and it was the perfect amount of festive and flirty. I kept things simple with all the accessories and just added a bit of pizzazz with my shoes. I have had these studded shoes forever and they are such a classic pair of shoes which can be dressed up and down.
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.
Hope everyone is having a great day! I am just doing a quick post for a new fun top I just bought and wore to a girls lunch a few days ago. The blue in this top is perfection and I love the subtle pattern and lightweight silk which allows it to drape beautifully. I kept the outfit simple with just a few accessories and barely there sandals. I added my summer staple clutch and I was ready to roll. I have also worn the top loose and flowing over a pair of skinny jeans and it looked fantastic without the belt as well!
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!
