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?

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!

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.

Lovin’ Right Now: Sweater Details

 

Sweaters like these, with the coolest details, make me wish that mild temperatures were more common where I live.

Honestly, one week it’s in the 30s and the next it’s in the high 70s. If there ever were a state to be known for it’s ridiculous weather, it’d have to be Texas.

Style to Admire: Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle has been in the limelight for a while now, with playing the role of Amy Jessup in Fringe and Rachel Zane in Suits. Like her character Rachel Zane–this lady has got some style!

With her newfound status as the significant other of Prince Harry, I’m sure we will be seeing more and more of her. Also, I always knew she had good acting chops and amazing style, but I recently found out about her humanitarian efforts in Africa (i.e. providing clean water, building new latrines for school aged children, and more).

Needless to say, I not only admire her style but also her work ethic and big heart. Definitely a woman that many could look up to.

Lovin’ Right Now: Fair Isle Sweaters

 

I love fair isle sweaters because they are THE perfect sweater for the holiday season and will continue to remain a classic, unlike those sweaters with Rudolph and jingle bells on them. 😉

So for those who are heading to a more casual or cozy holiday party, I totally recommend pairing a fair isle sweater with either a simple mini skirt or some fun jeans. You’ll be cute AND comfy as you sip on some spiced cider. Win win, no?

What to Wear Now and Later: Holiday Style

wear-now-and-later-december-2016

This time of year you hear so many women talk about never knowing what to wear for this and that holiday party. Lots of times they have something they could wear in their closet, but of course, we all like to treat ourselves to something new that just makes us feel good.

That is why I love this red swing dress from H&M. It is EXTREMELY versatile and can go from day to evening easily, which is why I feel it’s a great choice for both your Christmas day outfit and your New Years Eve look.
