It’s HOT in HOUSTON. Literally the word HOT is in the word HOusTon. That’s life here in the Lone Star State! Because we have so much hot weather, I get tired of wearing shorts or workout clothes, so I decided to try all white. I threw on my favorite white skinnies and a breathable t-shirt. I have a secret love for graphic tees…SHHHH! This one is old, but here is a similar one I found that stays in the frenchy style. Click on the link to see the funny fraise LOL #oldnavy
These shoes were $9, yes $9 from #marshalls. I figured since the rest of my outfit was pretty simple, I’d throw in a fun pattern. #allthingsleopard

What’s your go-to summer wardrobe piece?
This morning I decided to actually get dressed instead of just wear my typical lululemon attire. I bought this shirt earlier in the summer, but hadn’t worn it yet. I paired it with my favorite jeans and these cool, clear and mirrored sunglasses. Since I knew I would be running around today, I threw on my Sperry slip-on sneakers because I can walk all day in them.
Have you noticed that embroidery seems to be everywhere lately? What I like about this shirt, is that it incorporates that trend, without looking “costumey.” And, as usual, I have it half tucked! LOL What did we do before the half tuck?
Check out the bottom seam of my jeans. Hardly even a change and yet it feels SO fresh! These came this way, but truthfully, I have done this to 2 other pairs of jeans for an easy update.
When I went to put on my lipstick before I took pictures, I remembered that my sister-in-law had recently given me this adorable pink pouch from Neiman Marcus. I keep my lipstick in here and can easily move it between purses when I decide to switch it up.

Problem: This morning I didn’t have time to do the full hair ordeal before I had to go meet some people. Solution: The fedora. I threw my hair in a low, messy bun sort of to the side with some pieces hanging down around my face and topped it off with my hat. Then I knew I wanted to keep the look light and airy, so I paired it with this flowy tank top and white jeans. I also picked these pointy toe, soft leather loafers from ALDO. They give this look a little more sophistication than my usual flip flops. And, BONUS, they are so comfortable. To finish up my look, I kept my purse in the same hue of blue, but with an added pop of color.
Confession: I’ve worn this hat a million times to the pool, but never out with an outfit. I was a little nervous I couldn’t pull it off, but decided to try it anyway. I actually got multiple compliments! #fedora

This is something I wore to work back in March. It was a little chilly in the morning, but I knew it was going to warm up later in the day. I threw this sweater on because it is such a good layering piece. It is crop length so it shows your shirt tail, but it also doesn’t gather at the bottom; instead, it hangs loose and sort of wide. This makes it easy to pair with an oxford style shirt so it doesn’t get bunchy where the shirt meets the sweater.
I actually did not need to take it off all day, but when I got home, I started playing with different ways I could have worn it. I love the 1st look of rolling up the sleeves and tying the sweater around my waist. It gives this preppy outfit a slightly edgier vibe. The 3rd look goes in the opposite direction making it look slightly more conservative. I love that the shoes work with all three of the different styles and they are so comfortable.
