The days in Houston are still far too warm for my liking this late in October, but the mornings and evenings are absolutely lovely – nice, crisp breezes with beautiful skies, and just cool enough to finally break out my favorite coated denim. I love how these pants can elevate the simplest of outfits – the timeless t-shirt and jean duo brought up a notch. I could have been wearing tennis shoes with this ensemble as opposed to the pumps and still feel put together (which I did in fact do to make grocery shopping a little more comfortable post photo shoot).

And yes, those are holiday decorations in that 4th photo, already adorning the store roofs in Highland Village – really?! Apparently Halloween just doesn’t matter anymore?

I hope everyone has a spooky Halloween, filled with lots of candy! Enjoy it this week while you can, because apparently Christmas has already started.






It seems my adoration for apparel with simple French phrases is just not going to go away. I thought I was done after the Bien sweat shirt and the Eiffel Tour tank, but when I found this muscle tank with one of my favorite French vocabulary words (on sale, no less!) all existing items no longer mattered. In my defense though, this is a rather practical purchase – it can be styled in endless ways and will comfortably get me through yet another wicked summer in the Houston heat. Plus, my beloved blogging partner in crime is the one person that would never judge me for owning too many French inspired clothing items 🙂

Do you have any particular fashion statements that you can’t get enough of?

And is it really May already?! Not that I am disheartened by this fact – I have many exciting trips to look forward to in May and June and am very happy it is here. But seriously, did April even exist?



Into The Mystic


Due to another beautiful weekend in Houston, coupled with the realization that my outfit posts have been nothing black/white/gold for the past several weeks, I decided to throw on a brightly colored comfy dress for an afternoon picnic with my man. We took a drive out to George Bush Park for some sandwiches, Girl Scout cookies, and a game of cribbage (in which I lost miserably, gah). And now that I have started to write this, I realize that we are an 80 year old couple. But I can’t think of a better way to soak up some afternoon sun. Anywayyyy, putting on this outfit got me pretty excited for spring and summer – we have several weddings between March and November, and I feel these next few seasons are going to be filled with some awesome memories.

It’s officially March and I know that everyone is having spring fever. What trends are you looking forward to??
