Brrrrr….Baby It’s Cold Outside!

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone had a wonderful (albeit very chilly) weekend!  I went cycling this weekend – I had to buy many accessories I never even knew existed like “sleeves”, “leg warmers”, under shell and gloves to go over my gloves) and I bit the big one.  Yup, I fell and I fell hard.  Good news is the bruises are all on my legs so you can not see them unless I am in a skirt.  But I have been trying out various cover ups to make them less noticeable (a bit hard when the one on my knee is a half-dollar size and purple).

As Houstonians we wait desperately for this time of year.  There is something so right about extremely chilly weather this time of year.  It gets me prepared for the holidays – starting with my favorite holiday of all Thanksgiving.  It is time to pull out my cashmere sweaters because chances are it will only last a day or two (current forecast for Thanksgiving is 80 degrees so I will be keeping the doors open in the family room).

I came across this cashmere sweater and absolutely love that the zipper is in the back.  Today I turned it around so I could wear it as a cardigan.  I have worn it both ways and you guys know I love a multifunctional piece of clothing (see here and here).  The soft gray color had me (of course) excited to pair it with pink.  These pink skinny pants might be the best pants ever made (they also come in every color imaginable).  They are my new find and I LOVE them!  They contain the right amount of stretch which makes them extremely flattering.  Also, the fit is perfect around the waist and the length is just right for fun pumps.

White Flares & Red Tunic

Hello lovelies!

I hope your having a great week!  I am still recovering from serious jet lag – I hear it is one day per each hour of time difference.  That puts getting back to Houston time at 10 days for me.  Ouch….

I wanted to share some funny stories – like the fact that my iPhone completely stopped working the second I left the US.  No camera, no apps (i.e. no books to read), no email, no Candy Crush or Words with Friends.  It was actually very strange to be so disconnected but at the same time kind of liberating (after days of frustration).  It was a very peaceful 10 days (other than when I couldn’t find my girlfriend at the airport for an hour).

Flares are all the rage this fall and winter, and since we live in Houston I took advantage of the no one cares it is after Labor Day (who even follows the after labor day rule about white?).  I came across these flares and fell in love with them.  They are perfect because they are not bright white but have a tinge of ivory to them.  Perfect for winter!  I added a red tunic and gold belt and I was ready to roll.  This Taylor & Tessier necklace is also a current favorite of mine.  I can’t stop wearing it – it goes with everything!!  I wore it everyday while I was traveling.

#Tuesdayshoesday

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  When I started #tuesdayshoesday it was to open up a dialogue.  This conversation may be good or bad but fashion ultimately is about expressing yourself.  That means different things to different people.  I am pushing the ante a bit today – tell me would you?

Because I’m happy

Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof

Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
