The Long and the Short of It

Okay Houstonians, I hope you’re enjoying the last of these cool mornings and warm afternoon days, because we know the devil weather is right around the corner.

For myself, this is the only time that I particularly enjoy the Texas summer – these random spurts of agreeable weather where the humidity is lower than usual, the mornings are cool enough for a jog without uncontrollable sweating til at least 10:30 a.m.,the afternoons and early evenings are more than perfect for happy hours on the patio and nighttime feels incredible enough for a stroll in the park.

If you haven’t been in Houston long, it’s hard to decipher what you should wear during this time.

Top : Lulus || Shorts : Gap || Shoes : Monastiraki, Athens, Greece

A simple rule of thumb for any locale during Spring or Fall, where you’re not sure of how cool the mornings will be nor how hot the afternoons will be is to LAYER! If I’m not in the layering mood – I try to keep my outfits balanced like this one here. When the temperatures are up and down, keep something covered and show a little something else. This way, you’re not too hot when the sun really starts warming up and you’re not too cold when the sun starts going down. Also try to keep your fabrics breathable, it’s OKAY to wear long sleeves in late Spring/early summer as long as your fabrics are right.

Summer Don’t : Wool/Cashmere || Summer Do : COTTON!

Choker : Aldo Shoes

When the humidity is low, a WHOLE world of hair styles is opened up – for me, this means it’s actually worth taking heat tools to my hair without worrying about a frizz-attack. However, in this case, I piled my mane on top of my head for a top knot, free-ing my shoulders to the sun!

This is one of my FAVORITE pair of sandals. They’re platform, have a touch of espadrille style in one of the layers of the platform, I’m obsessed with the braided detail across the top of the foot, and they tie up, making them part of the gladiator family. Something about gladiator sandals scream summer and continues to give a warm-weather appropriate feel to the long sleeve top.

Enjoy the last mild days of the late Spring! Because – Brace yourselves, Summer is coming!

xoxo
