A lot of people shy away from styling a pair of distressed jeans in fall and winter because of the weather. Of course, that’s quite different here in Houston where we can style it all year long.
But there IS a way around it and although I didn’t show it on this post, I’m about to tell you that right now: The easiest way to still be able to style a pair of distressed jeans in fall and winter when the weather is cold is to wear a pair of tights underneath it. Simple, right? I’m sure to some of you, it’s a no brainer…but to some it may be a DUH moment.
I’d like to do it to couple of ways though. Sometimes I’d wear a pair of nude tights or leggings to make it seem like it’s I have no tights underneath or wear black tights/leggings and make it look patchy. Either way, it works.
Y’all, I’m so proud of Houston! I’m so proud that our city was pretty cool (temperature-wise) this week! I think we’re finally catching up on how to be cool (pun intended) like you guys up North! HA! But our weather is still totally safe to wear something like this cute cold shoulder (another pun intended) Lovers + Friends Floral Dress.
Quite honestly, I didn’t expect to see some cold shoulder pieces in fall but I guess for cities like us where we may get a total of maybe 4-6 cold weeks out of 6 months, we can totally pull off some clothing pieces like this. I know you guys up north are totally cool but I know that when the snow gets thick, you totally get jealous of us when we can totally wear a dress like this. HA!
The good news is that because this piece is on the lighter side with just hints of fall colors, you can totally rock this all year long. For fall, you can wear with a fall hat and a pair of boots or booties and for spring and summer, you can wear it with lace up sandals or slides and a wide brim straw hat.
And how amazing is this Kate Spade Handbag? I love everything about this bag: the color, the size, and the style! But quite honestly, I love anything and everything Kate Spade New York anyways!
Hello, hello my friends! Sorry I have been MIA for about a couple of weeks here but things have just been quite hectic as I begin to launch something. No worries, I will keep you posted on what that’s all about, perhaps in the next couple of days.
For the meantime, surprisingly, here in Houston, a little cold front snuck up on me. I had no idea that we will be getting one! Apparently, our temps will be down to mid to high 50s in the next few days. This really caught me in surprise because I wasn’t expecting any cold front until November. But hey, it showed up early this time! I was still enjoy my athleisure + basics outfit until today.
Speaking of basics, whenever fall comes, we seem to think less of our basics and opt for sweaters, coats, jackets and all the wardrobe shenanigans whenever weather gets cold. However, basics are basics and no matter what season it is, it’s something that you can wear and style, however you want…just like this white v-neck t-shirt that I had on on this post. It’s easy to forget about our basics but in reality, they are the most effortless to style! Put on a v-neck t-shirt, a pair of jeans, and a biker jacket and you’re good to go! So simple yet so chic. If it’s colder, you can always put a tank underneath and a scarf around your neck! And this is work-friendly as well. If you’re not in a corporate environment where a s
So Fall is here…what can I say? In the first few weeks of Fall in Texas, it’s kind of a joke. We still get mid 90 degree weather pretty much on a daily basis. But no complaint here at all. I’ll take warm weather versus cold anytime! Having longer “summer” time in Houston is quite an advantage for me. However, I have read from forecasts that we will be experiencing some really cold weather this season. Yikes!
Right around this time, Houstonians tend to have a fashion crisis! Some wear boots or booties and some wear sandals and we’ve learned not to roll our eyes or laugh at other people or ourselves because that’s just how we need to roll in Texas fall! We mostly do a crossover of styles between summer and fall.
Cue Music…”Saying goodbye is never an easy thing…but you never said that you’d stay forever. But if you must go…well darling I’ll set you free…but I know in time, we’ll be together…” Ha! Does anybody remember that song by Taylor Dayne? I used to listen to that music when I got jilted in love in college. Confessions, confessions! But that’s not really what I was singing that for. I’m talking about summer. Yes, I’m pretty sad that we’re halfway in September already and summer is going to be over in a week. While I know it’s always exciting when a new season begins, lots of fun really does happen during summer. Do you agree?
So I’m sharing 5 tips with you on how you can make the best out of the remaining summer days…8 days to be exact.
We’re wrapping up summer real soon and if you don’t know yet, this is the best time to grab some of the summer pieces you’ve been eyeing on because a lot of them are on sale. Though those pieces may be seasonal and you may think it’s useless to buy it now, think again. You can always use these pieces next summer, especially maxi dresses. Maxi dresses never go out on style – they always come back in spring and summer.
So I’ve curated the cutest maxi dresses for you below. A lot of them are below $50 and some are below $100! A 40-50% cut from its original price. Some colors are actually good for fall!
If you’re already shopping for the holidays and you know someone who loves maxis, then check out the below selection!
One Piece Off-Shoulder Suit | Skirt (Currently on sale!) If you’re following me on Instagram and you’ve seen my posts, you know that my husband and I went to San Diego a couple of weeks ago for a quick getaway before summer ends. I have a full San Diego Travel Guide that will be published separately next week but for now I would like to share with you my travel outfits – almost everything is from Revolve. It’s one of…
I must be honest…I was completely lost on what to talk about on this post. I’m honestly done just trying to look pretty without talking valuable stuff that will help my readers. Not that liking clothes and being fashionista is wrong. In fact, I advocate for dressing up well because the way we dress and carry ourselves says a lot about how we see ourselves. I don’t know about you but when I dress well, I feel more confident and I’m able to carry myself better in meeting other people and conversing.
I’m also not saying that I won’t post fashion stuff anymore. I’ve always loved fashion and will always love it.
But this past couple of years, I’ve been on a self-discovery journey. And I did that for myself, for my husband, and for our marriage, as well as for other people. I know that if I’m better and if I’m feeling good about myself, I can give more to my marriage and I can serve people better.
See, there’s a lot of things that go on an daily basis that a lot of times we either just roll with and let slide – events, people, stuff, that make us happy, sad, upset, and we don’t even understand why. Our emotions just flow a lot of times. It’s all good when it’s positive emotions but what about the negative emotions? What frustrates you and why? What upsets you and why? What makes you sad and why? How do you handle them when they come?
