Texas Style & a Giveaway

Yesterday was a pretty exciting day for The Lone Star Looking Glass!

If you’re following me on Instagram, you just might have noticed that I (along with 4 other fab Houston bloggers) took over LiketoKnow.it’s Instagram account for #LTKTakeoverTuesday!

The five of us Houstonians showed off our city, our fashions and our own personal flare in a 10 photo takeover.

Not only am I chatting about the takeover today and this oh so cute boho-chic outfit – but I’m also sharing a HUGE giveaway ($500 shopping spree y’all!) at the bottom of this post that you do not want to miss!

If you aren’t familiar with #LTKTakeoverTuesday, it’s an opportunity for rewardStyle bloggers to takeover the LiketoKnow.it Instagram account. Takeovers can either show off a day in their life, be an event takeover or even show off a group of girls’ favorite spots in their city.

For our Houston city takeover, I knew I had to pick just the right places – both very pretty locations & spots that I loved so much.
I couldn’t wait to share them with 1.6 million peeps! 
I am such a nature lover who wishes to be outdoors at all times, so I knew right away I needed to find a spot that showed off Houston’s greenery.
Let’s be honest, this isn’t something that Houston is really well known for! 
Buffalo Bayou Park lies right in the heart of the city and is filled with hiking trails, biking trails, a massive dog park, as well as skyline views that can’t be beat!  
I had so much fun shooting here, bright and early before work on Monday morning.  (Someone asked me recently how I balanced my blog and a full time job … the answer? Waking up very EARLY & lots of coffee!) 
I’ve been on a Free People kick lately.  I haven’t shopped there too much in the past but it’s like I’ve recently fallen in love all over again. 
I am loving this flowy tunic top, which I actually think is really probably a dress…. 
But on a chilly morning, and to make it work appropriately, I threw on a pair of jeans underneath making it that much more comfortable. 
Come warm summer days, I am sure this “dress” will be worn as it was intended. 
similar tunic style dress/tops that I’m also loving: 

Accessories for this bohemian southwestern inspired look were fun to pick: my favorite tall boots & a fringe clutch!

These boots are from Cavender’s (my fav!) but are sadly now sold out. This similar pair and this one too are just as cute!

Added a rancher hat for good measure. 
I was sharing a thing or two about Texas style, after all!

I was thrilled that I not only had one, but two opportunities to share my style and my favorite places in Houston with so many people yesterday.  
Later this week (or next depending on this gal’s busy schedule) I’ll go into detail on outfit number two and why I chose 19th street as my second favorite spot in all of Houston!

  • Hi Alice, I started following your blog and IG after finding out we are moving to Houston from southern California. It's so funny that you mentioned Houston isn't known for it's greenery. I didn't expect it to be so beautiful and green but when I first visited it was one of the things I was pleasantly surprised by. (It might have been bc California is so brown right now from drought.) I loved seeing these glimpses of Houston, thanks!

  • So cool that you got to do a LTK takeover. Loved the posts and this tunic/dress is so adorable!

  • WOAH what a fabulous giveaway! Also, you look amazing girl!
