If you’re ever looking for a fun spot to hang out by the pool or have afternoon tea, Hotel Granduca is the place to be! Yes, I know that rhymes, and no I didn’t plan on it. You guys, Hotel Granduca is one of my favorite spots in Houston to enjoy a lazy day by the pool and people watch. However, their afternoon tea service is what really stands out!

When Dede, Roselyn and I decided to throw a baby shower for our dear friend Ashley from Simplicity and Coffee, we knew Hotel Granduca would be the perfect spot. My first experience at the hotel was afternoon tea for my own bridal shower. I remember walking into a stunning room where the table was set to perfection. What followed was three courses of snacks, tea and (lots of) champagne — this was truly one of my fondest memories from the time of my wedding. This time around, Hotel Granduca was kind enough to sponsor Ashley’s baby shower and our experience was amazing!

I am so excited to share this outfit with you all today! This has got to be one of my favorite looks I have ever worn. If I could, I would wear this look every damn day. The ‘duster’ that you see in these photos is actually a silk wrap dress and I am obsessed with the color. I am a sucker for a neutral metallic and this to me is perfection.     View Post

Happy Monday everyone! This week is a four day work week for me because I am going to Vail on Thursday!! Actually, that’s not an accurate statement because a blogger’s work never stops. As a blogger, I have signed up for continuously documenting my life, and that is exactly what I will be doing in Vail. I plan on taking some outfit photos (if the weather permits it) and vlogging. Yes, I haven’t vlogged in a while and I am starting to really look forward to it again. For now, I’d like to talk about this badass studded leather jacket! View Post

Ah! These pictures are from way back when it was sweater weather in Houston. Good times! Ok, I’m not going to rant about the weather in this post. I’ve been talking about my disappointment with the weather a little too much and I need to deal with my feelings elsewhere. By the way, this Rag and Bone sweater is the very first thing I’ve bought from the brand. I love the way it looks and feels! The quality is impeccable and I loooove the colors. I’m certain there will be more Rag and Bone additions to my wardrobe over the years!

Who doesn’t love an all black everything look? Black is starting to become one of my favorite colors to wear! It’s chic, sophisticated and classic. Not to mention, totally up my alley. As the weather is fluctuating in Houston, yet again, I’m having a really hard time figuring out what clothing to wear. It would be ideal to take the all black everything look into spring and summer. Luckily, I have found the perfect top to pull this off! View Post
