C’est La Vie

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?

Embroidery Trend

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.

Hat Trick

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

Prepster 3 Ways

 

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.
