Xristos Anesti, my friends!!!

You know you’re Greek when it takes you a few days to recover and get back to normal after Easter. And even though this Easter was low key considering the Western & Orthodox liturgical calendars synced up this year, it still took me a full week to rest up. Okay, actually I’m using that as an excuse for not being more on my game. (I’m mature enough to call myself out).

Lips : Kat Von D Backstage Bambi + Anastasia Beverly Hills Party Pink || Necklace : Bauble Bar || Dress : Closet London

I typically prefer Autumn/Winter to Spring/Summer; the weather is good to my hair, makeup, and allergies. But I can enjoy the way that the warm weather and sunshine make me feel, the blooming plants and sense of life and rejuvenation that the season brings. It also helps that I’m obsessed with florals, and this time of year gives me the best excuse to bring out my brightest, most blooming options.

Shoes : Guess

Wearing bright statement pieces help me keep the sunshine on April Shower days

Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter are all perfect reasons to dig out the brights from storage and start adding your spring pieces to slay an outfit.

Princess Vibes

I love this dress from Closet London – the perfect timeless, flirty, classy LBD. Usually when a dress comes with a belt, I toss it. They’re typically cheap looking and I can find much better alternatives. But will you check out how cute this one is?

Did I mention this dress comes with pockets?!

With the simplicity of the LBD, I wanted to keep this look simple as well using strategically placed bursts of color with the shoes, the statement necklace and the bright pink lips. So I had the same idea with the makeup for this look.

Face : Urban Decay Naked Foundation 7.5
Concealer : Maybelline Age Rewind in Neutralizer
Contour : ABH Stick Foundation in Mink; Kat Von D Shade + Light Palette
Powders : Laura Mercier Brightening for under eye || Laura Mercier Transluscent
Blush : (subtle) Sephora Collection No. 5

Shadows : Makeup Geek Mango Tango & Cocoa Bear in the crease; Bitten to deepen; Coloured Raine shadows in Who, Me? + Champagne Life on the lid; Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma + MUFE D862 in inner corner; ABH Pro Pencil in Base 1 in water line; Bitten blended out with Cocoa Bear smudged under the eye

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!!)
