Everyone Needs Black Sequin Leggings

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone is staying warm in this deep freeze going on across the country!  I am running out of sweaters – so I need it to warm up just a smidge.  I think I may have turned into a bear the last few weeks and consequently I have been practicing my hibernating skills and not posting.

The one positive thing about this weather is – perfect for a fire, a blanket and a good book.  I am doing the GoodReads challenge for 2018 and have pledged to read 50 books this year.  A bit daunting but I think it can totally be done!  I just finished reading The Dry by Jane Harper – it is a murder mystery.  I generally do not enjoy these types of novels because I figure them out too easily but this one had me guessing until the very end.  I loved it!

After the holidays I wanted to incorporate some sequins into my looks – why give the sequins up?  I think everyone needs a good pair of black sequin leggings.  They are a great piece to dress up or down depending upon the occasion.  I wore mine with a simple black top and added a fringe cropped blazer for a fun element.  The sequin leggings look just as good with a basic chunky black sweater, or a satin shirt and a long blazer, or a white button down and black moto jacket…the possibilities are endless!  Invest in a pair – I promise you won’t regret it.

Red Lace Skirt & Pink Fur

Hello lovelies!

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday – I have found it extremely difficult getting back into the swing of things.  I do not want to leave the warmth of my bed especially with the current cold front in Houston.  I may have spent a few days of the break snuggled up in bed with a good book.  I just finished The News From Spain: Seven Variations on a Love Story by Joan Wickersham.  It is book of short stories which all center around love – love unrequited, love with bad timing, love with complications.  Some of the stories are heart wrenching but I thoroughly enjoyed reading each one.

The outfit today is centered around one of my new favorite lace skirts!  I love pencil skirts – they are great for dressing up and down.  I have worn the skirt with a fun sweatshirt and some flat boots as well.  I wanted to dress it up for a night out with friends so I added the button down and a vest for a masculine/feminine mix.  The pearls were a fun accessory and the shoes were a great wow factor (I bought them 40% off) and the pink fur was a Christmas gift and perfect for the current cold nights (Mr. Wonderful was spot on with that one).

If it’s still cold in February I may repeat this outfit for Valentine’s Day – I love a good recycled outfit!

Under $30 Holiday Outfit

Hello lovelies!

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.

Pretty Pink Tulle Party Dress

Hello lovelies!

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.

Ruffles & Embroidered Mules

 Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  I have been enjoying this gorgeous crisp weather and hope it stays this crisp forever (realistically – at least a few days in Houston would be nice).

On a side note I just finished reading – When We Were Worthy by Marybeth Mayhew Whalen.  it reminded me of Big Little Lies which I absolutely loved reading as well (and watching on HBO).  It was a quick read and a real page turner.

I came across these pants online and absolutely fell in love with them.  The black denim and the ruffle were spot on and have such a fun and flirty element to them.  They will be great to wear in warm weather as well which is a big consideration in Houston.  I added a basic black sweater and these die for mules!  I saw them at Nordstrom online and had to have them.  The embroidery is gorgeous and the mule design is very on trend and easy to wear.  When I am running around they are perfect for slipping on my feet for the glam factor (did I mention they are on sale). 🙂

Borrowed From the Boys: Army Green Boyfriend & Touch of Girly

Hello lovelies!

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.

Asymmetrical Top & Gold Belt

Hello lovelies!

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!

Comfy Travel Outfit: New Brand Discovery & Silver Kicks

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!  I just got back from my getaway and wanted to share some outfit posts that I was frankly too lazy to posy while I was on vacay with family and friends.   I just love it when I discover a new brand!  I was browsing online and came across this ATM dress – it is extremely soft cotton which feels luxurious.  It is the perfect brand for comfy chic clothing around town and for travel clothing!  I also bought some slim joggers  (in military color) which I wore on the flight back with a comfy T and a blazer and they are divine (I got compliments in customs)!  I can’t even describe how soft the cotton feels and it wore extremely well on the flight.   I threw on my silver kicks (which I wore all over London and Rome) and I was ready to roll!

London: Red, White & Blue

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone is having a great summer!  I just got back from London and I must admit I am a bit jet lagged.  I took a break from posting during the holiday because I pretty much hung out and partied with my friends and family but don’t worry I did take photos!  I wore this dress around London while I was shopping (yeah it was sale season) and sight-seeing in Rome – it is so comfy!  It is also perfect for Fourth of July holiday and I am sporting it today!  I just got introduced to this designer while she was having a trunk show in Houston – her pieces are extremely reasonably priced and fun to wear.  This dress did not wrinkle at all so it was perfect for travel.  Isn’t it great when you can repeat an outfit?!? But the silver kicks were a part of my every day uniform.  They have been an awesome investment and with the fall silver craze coming they will be spot on trend wise in the fall as well.

Baby Blue: Flirty Feminine Lace & Ankle Tie Shoes

Hello lovelies!

Greetings from London!  I have been encountering some technology issue so I apologize for not posting sooner!  I am here for a fun family holiday and the weather is extremely hot!  They are experiencing a heat wave – and without air conditioning at most places (my inner Houstonian almost passed out) it gets to be a bit toasty.  I have been dreaming of ice cubes quite a bit.  But heat wave aside the city is gorgeous and still one of my favorite places ever!

This is a quick post of a dress I came across during the Nordstrom sale that I wore out to a fun girls lunch!  The lace is absolutely gorgeous and the color of this dress is out of this world.  When I saw it I was reminded of the Self-Portrait lace dress (worn here) but at a much more reasonable price (and its on sale)!  Win-win all around.
