Tomorrow is the first day of Spring, and I am sure that all of ya’ll are just as happy about that as I am! To celebrate the season, I’m teaming up with Kokoon to give away a $100 gift card to one lucky reader! Kokoon is an online women’s clothing boutique offering seriously chic pieces, that are super comfortable to boot!

Over the weekend, my family came in town from Tennessee and we spent their entire stay playing tourists in Houston. (It’s rodeo season in Houston
ya’ll, everyone wants to come in town!) My mom and I were lucky enough
to get a day to ourselves which we spent touring Ima Hogg’s Mansion and
Gardens at the Bayou Bend Collection.  All of the pretty spring flowers were in bloom and we could not have picked a better day to tour the gorgeous gardens.

I styled Kokoon’s Otto Pants for the occasion with a plain white peplum top and some fun gold jewelry. These pants ya’ll, I have never worn anything more comfortable in my life! The cigarette style pants are slimming and perfect for the office. But let me let you in on a little secret, they feel like the comfiest pair of yoga pants you’ve ever worn, not even kidding! I’m obsessed.

See some snaps from our beautiful spring day at Bayou Bend and don’t forget to enter my Kokoon giveaway below!


Now to figure out how to get my backyard garden to look as pretty as this!
