Feels like Summer (Reader Update)

IMG_0696IMG_0695

 

Hello lovelies!

I know I’ve been quite hit and miss when it comes to posting since having gotten back from my trip to the Pacific Northwest and I apologize for that. Things have been crazy here, but I am currently trying to get back to some semblance of a normal schedule/routine.

Also, it’s really been feeling like summer here in the Houston area. I’ve already worn my white jeans multiple times and have even been able to get out the bikini as well. Crazy stuff–I know.

One brand I’ve come to love recently is Jude Connally and that is because of the saving grace of the moisture wicking material of many of her pieces (like the dress I am wearing above). If there’s one thing that annoys me, it’s when humidity gets my clothes to attack me and luckily that does not happen when you wear Jude Connally.

Have a wonderful Tuesday, y’all!

10 Dresses to Wear this Easter

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Easter is this Sunday and with that comes the question of what to wear. Or, if you’re like me, the joy of knowing you can have chocolate again–come at me Thin Mints! 😉

However, finding a cute dress to wear on Easter is still definitely something that comes to mind. Lucky for me, I recently got a cute blush cap sleeve dress at a steal that will be perfect to wear once I get it back from the alterations (short people problems, am i right?).

Here’s to finding that perfect outfit!

Wednesday Want: Bookmaking Brunch Dress in Roses

Modcloth Brunch Dress in Roses

 

If there’s one thing I love about warmer weather, it’s the ability to wear a dress without worrying about if my legs, arms, or what have you will get cold. Seeing as how I am a dress person, not having to worry about something like that makes life just a bit easier.

As far as this new Modcloth dress, I am loving SO many things about you. The colors, the lovely print, the fact that it’s above the knee (huge plus for someone who is just barely over five feet tall), and also just the overall classic look of it.

With seeing such a huge quantity of cold shouldered dresses out there (too many in my opinion), it’s really refreshing to see more classically designed dresses still hitting the racks per se.

Happy hump day!

Lovin’ Right Now: Victoria Beckham for Target Collection

 

The Victoria Beckham for Target collection aims to please and it will surely accomplish do just that when it becomes available on April 9th. I mean, not only are the majority of pieces from the collection under $50 but it also offers fashionable pieces for those who are plus size (which is a rarity all on its own).

I personally am already coveting the collared black dress (it has rabbits on the collar–how cute!), the gingham peplum top, and the oversized daisy print peplum top.

What are some of y’all’s favorites?

Multnomah Falls, located twenty to thirty minutes East of Portland, is definitely something worth seeing if you’re ever in the Portland area. Not only is it a great place for a photo-op but also just a cool place to start your exploration of the Columbia River Gorge.

When I went a few weeks ago, there was still some snow on the ground from the previous snowstorm and it just made it look even more majestic. Unfortunately, though, the snow and ice made it to where we couldn’t really explore on foot as much as I wanted to.

Happy Friday y’all!

Wednesday Want: Raella Embroidered Tunic Dress

Since having laid eyes on those gorgeous dress while on vacation in Portland, I have been dreaming of it being in my closet close to every night. Okay, not every night, but I have dreamed of it!

I love the mustard color of it, the A-line silhouette, and the vibrant stitching on the sleeves and hem.

Here’s to spring weather, so I can wear my warmer weather dresses again!

Seattle Center

My second (and last) day in Seattle began with a morning spent in the Pioneer Square/International District area and followed by an afternoon at the Seattle Center.

The Seattle Center is seventy-four acres and was originally built for the 1962 World Fair. It currently is comprised of the Museum of Pop Culture, the Memorial Stadium, Chihuly Glass and Gardens, the Space Needle, and the Key Arena. I spent the majority of my time at the Museum of Pop Culture to check out the Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, and Star Trek exhibits (amongst many others) and then made my way over to the Space Needle as the sun was setting.

To anyone who is visiting Seattle in the near future, I highly recommend that you check out this area as there is honestly just so much to do.

To say that my trip up to the Northwest was much needed is an understatement. I am honestly so glad I was able to be up there for close to a week and not only explore Seattle but Portland and Eugene, aka my old stomping grounds, as well.

My first stop was Seattle and almost immediately after arriving I headed to Pike Place Market to check out the area and get some good fish n chips. I knew that this was a place I just had to go to and am glad it was my first place to explore, with being able to see the fishermen throw the fish, scope out all the vendors, and glance at (not touch) the infamous Gum Wall.

I also loved how friendly everyone was! While eating my fish n chips, the server even had me try some fruit from the vendor across the way and it was SOO good!

Wednesday Want: Florence Cable Pullover

ww-florence-cable-pullover

Love love love the arm detailing on the sweater and the shorter length!! Not only does it look great for a shorter statured woman such as myself but I also love the punch of color.

Honestly, I see this being the perfect sweater for a chill night with friends while up in the NW.

Name For You

 

I’m currently planning a trip back up to my second home–the Northwest–and “Name For You” is by far one of the highlights on the travel playlist that I am making for my trip.

I’ve always had a special place in my heart for The Shins, as they were my first ever concert. Their music is simply feel-good music, and I have truly never been in a bad mood while listening to them. This song echoes that feeling and is also just such a great song to have on while driving.

Needless to say, I honestly cannot wait to see what else they have in store for us and the March release of their new album “HEARTWORMS”.
