Soooo, it’s been a while since we have posted. Between traveling, visitors, weekend commitments… we are some busy girls! But it feels good to be back :)

This outfit is what I like to call my “uniform”. Ever since I bought these jeans a couple months ago, I rarely reach for anything else for low key nights/weekends. And I typically style them just like this. I may switch out the tank for a tee, and the flat sandals for heeled sandals, but other than that what you see is what you get. I find myself being drawn more and more to minimalistic styling that is effortless yet purposeful, that can be messy and trendy or clean and chic. Perhaps it’s my newish hair, perhaps it’s the weather, perhaps it’s my lack of interest in purchasing fast fashion as of late. Whatever it is, I think it is here to stay for some time!

The Heights recently updated it’s pedestrian walkway along Heights Blvd with some interesting sculptures, and I couldn’t help but use a couple of my favorites for some outfit shots! Fun, right?

Is there anything better than a favorite pair of jeans? Well yes, I suppose there are plenty of better things… but they are pretty high up there, no?

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend filled with treats! I happen to be impatiently waiting for Monday, when all of the Cadbury Eggs go on sale.



Watershed Market


This past weekend Houston hosted its first Watershed Market – an outdoor pop up market with several Texas local vendors selling a variety of goods and services. I knew that one of my favorite online shops, Sun Child, would be there, and I was eager to see some other local offerings. So I ventured out with Kyle and my friend Lindsey to see what it was all about. Overall, I thought it was pretty great! A few food trucks as well as some locally brewed beer, live music, and shops offering everything from garden start ups to art to clothing/accessories to DIY projects. I will admit that I was hoping for more handcrafted goods type of shops, but the space has a lot of potential. The event was located in East Downtown, an area that is up and coming, and I have been told that there will be a repeat event in May with even more vendors. I am excited to see it grow! Houston has worked really hard the past couple of years to form a better sense of community among its residents and make the downtown area more desirable. These types of events are becoming more and more popular around here, and I love it.


A great view of downtown behind the band tent.



The wonderful Sun Child, and below is the lovely owner, Christina!



Some great starter vegetables and succulent gardens.



Some very awesome/clever artwork.


The AMAZING Sinfull Bakery – I love these guys!


Lindsey and I, post scarfing down some scrumptious pork belly baos from Eatsie Boys, enjoying a nice cold Karbach Summer Seasonal brew – some of the best beer I have had in a while!

If you are in the Houston area, make sure to stop by the next Watershed Market in May!

DSC_0389.jpgMy dear friend Tricia of Growth by the Season came to visit last week and it was nothing short of fabulous. We drank wine, good beer, ate wonderful food and went on a long walk in the Washington Arboretum. If you live in Seattle and have never been there – go there now! All the tree’s were in full bloom :) I was going to write some long post about how refreshing it was to see an old friend, get out side and smell the fresh air…. however Tricia already did it so well on her blog. Check out her awesome website and her post about the clam chowder dinner she and my husband made here. It was delish!

Can’t wait for her to come visit again! Happy Friday everyone… oh and GO GREEN!
