Summer Time

You guys, I had the best time soaking in the California sun this past weekend, and now I’m back to rainy Houston, and back to the grind. Over the weekend, I was using a windbreaker at night. Today, I’m at home with the AC temperature turned down to 70 degrees. If only, Houston had San Francisco weather in the summer time. If only. But you can’t have it all right? Therefore, you have to dress for the weather. This post is PERFECT for summer time in Houston.

Who doesn’t love wearing white in the summer time? With the summer heat and tanned skin, white is a staple in my wardrobe. If you’re following me on Instagram, you know how much I love my neutrals. I think a neutral palette is great to wear in the summer time because it is light, airy and fresh! Also, rule of thumb, you can never go wrong with a neutral palette. View Post

As much as resisted, pink is fast becoming one of my favorite colors to wear. Bags, shoes, dresses, whatever, I’m obsessed! I actually just learnt that millennial pink is an actual color. Who would’ve thought?! Millennial pink is such a pretty shade. As I’m writing this post, I’m thinking that I should own something in that exact color — seeing that I am a millennial and all.  It’s funny because I’m literally writing this on the plane to San Francisco for my niece’s high school graduation, and let me tell you, I am not feeling like a millennial today.

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
