How To Dress In Fall and Winter in Houston, Texas

It’s not uncommon for us Houstonians to experience what we call “bipolar” weather here in Houston, for lack of a better term. Basically, it’s just a mix of fall/winter and spring/summer weather in one day. We’re no stranger to waking up in freezing temps in the morning and then sweating later on during the day. It can also be five days of cold temps and then another week in the high 70s.

Thankfully, we’ve learned to deal with it, especially in the way we dress. Dressing during this season is just a matter of mixing and matching summer and winter clothes, depending what the temperature is going to be like. Thank God for weather apps, right?! I had no idea what ancient Houstonians used to do though when weather apps don’t exist! I guess they just depended on the good ol’ weatherman on TV! With the bipolar weather we have in Houston, we depend a lot on the weather app to determine how to dress going to church, work, or running errands on any given day.

5 Ways To Make a Difference This Holiday Season

This holiday season can be so tough for many. We know all about the most recent California wildfires that have devastated thousands of families, claimed several lives of both humans and animals, and destroyed homes.

This is just one tragedy that is wildly publicized but there are probably thousand others who are suffering from some kind of loss such as the loss of a loved one, a home, a job.

Honestly, in situations like this, I feel helpless and seriously wished there’s something more I can do.

According to statistics, the depression and anxiety rate is at all time high during the holidays. The holidays are a time for gift giving and family and friends gathering. Unfortunately, for some people, they don’t have a family to spend time with or money to buy gifts and this can be a cause of sadness and loneliness.

Fall Outfit Inspiration: How to Style Distressed Jeans in Fall

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.

Fall Outfit Inspiration: Must Have Floral Fall Dress For Cities Like Houston

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!

Fall Outfit Inspiration: How to Style Your Basics This Fall

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

First 2018 Fall Outfit Inspiration: A Sporty Crossover Between Summer and Fall

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.
