Elevated

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.

The Rehearsal Outfit

DSC_0603

It’s taken a couple of weeks, but I’m feeling rested and refreshed after an intense (but completely awesome) wedding season. After a weekend of doing essentially nothing other than eating and watching Harry Potter, I’m ready to take on the fall and the rest of the events we have coming up this year. I wore this romper to both rehearsal dinners that I attended the past few weeks, and given the slightly cooler evening temperatures we have had in Houston the past few days, it’s been the perfect outfit to continue throwing on. Clearly I have a slight obsession with the romper – I’ve been wearing it every chance I get. But I never thought I would feel so good in one of these things. A romper is one of those pieces that you might have in your closet but it only makes it out  a few times a year at best. This version has been surprisingly versatile. Effortless yet classy. My dad did ask me if I was heading to a Bee Gee’s show when he saw it, but that’s cool… who doesn’t like some 70’s disco pop, right?

My first try at the crop

DSC_0801.jpg
First off, man does it feel good to be posting again. I have a laundry list of excuses… one of which being I haven’t had one free weekend in July… but I finally made myself find the time to sneak off at one of my best friend’s (Alekzandria – check out her blog here)  rehearsal dinners back home on Sugar Island near Sault Ste. Marie Michigan. I had purchased this crop top to wear with a mini skirt for her bachelorette party and when I saw it hanging in the closet next to my favorite skirt I knew they were meant to be worn together. I love how the pleated long maxi skirt elevates the crop top and makes the fun bold pattern and style more sophisticated. It was fun to mix up the a-line silhouette dress I usually wear to rehearsal dinners.

You can see the tent for the reception in the background of this last photo – for pictures of the actual wedding you MUST check out her photographer’s website here. The wedding was so beautiful and phenominal… and these pictures definitely do it justice.

Have a great weekend. Cheers to August!
