Hoping everyone had an amazing holiday season! I can’t believe it’s already coming to an end. No matter how hectic and stressful it can be, it’s always such a magical time and when it’s all over – it’s such a void!

This year’s holiday season has been quite the test for me. There’s been a lot of changes and a lot more to come, but I’ve been able to enjoy it as much as possible because come 2018 – there are plenty of amazing things in store!

This jumpsuit from A Thinking Boutique has been the It-Piece of my wardrobe this season, and seasons to come! It’s perfectly lightweight and the burgundy color goes with anything holiday, or even into early Spring with the perfect rose gold accessories.

 

For the Christmas AHEPA dinner I paired this gorgeous jumpsuit with a warm, glittery eye and a deep red lip. Because who doesn’t love a deep red lip for the holidays??

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!

Houston. There are a hundred thousand and 1 things I love about this city, and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is at the top of my list. We’re quite the metropolitan city with our port, major interstate highways and large international airport; but we’re also blessed to be part of one of the greatest states in the Union – TEXAS! Which is why the HLSR is a sweet taste of both country and cosmo.

No matter how urban or small town you are, if you live just north of Mexico, next to Louisiana and right below Oklahoma and don’t own at least one pair of western boots – you can’t call yourself Texan. We’re serious about our state pride here! But that doesn’t say you should be a total poser and go all out rustic if your style usually pulls on the edgy/chic/glamorous side (a.k.a high maintenance – I’m not afraid of calling myself out.)

I take pride in a nice pair of western boots, but I can’t go all provincial! I have to add just a touch of Glam

Shoulder bearing tops, dresses and rompers were in abundance in regards to the HLSR fair grounds street style. And I can see why since they’re so darn cute with cowgirl boots! These Bauble Bar for Target earrings were the perfect touch to an off-the-shoulder look as they bring attention to the neckline, while giving this look a twist of glam for the Rodeo. I work out often to ward off possibly inevitable saddle bags, but this cross-body with a tassle helped complete this “Rodeo” look. And these tea rose colored jeans will be in steady rotation for my spring wardrobe!

Outfit Details:
Top & Jeans – Old Navy (pants sold out online, similar top here)
Earrings – Target (link here)
Bag – Fossil (similar style here)
Boots – Cavender’s Boot City (these are TEN years old, y’all!!)
