Why I Went Balayage

    Houston fashion blogger Alice Kerley.

    I mentioned it on insta-stories a few weeks back and you might have noticed the change in recent blog + instagram posts but today I’m finally chatting about my new ‘do! After spending the first 28 years of my life with the same hair color, I thought I’d try something different this summer & change things up.

    I popped on over to the new Vanity Salon in The Heights to get my hair balayage-d. I’m chatting about why I decided to do it & my thoughts on the new look below. I’m also sharing fun details on next week’s Height’s White Linen Night & how Vanity Salon is making the event extra special this year!

    Monday Motivation: A Visit to VillaSport

    Six02 Workout Outfit

    How’s about a little dose of Monday motivation to kick off a new week?! While I’m still very much in vacation mode (you can follow on instagram and you’ll see some snaps of our current beach trip!) I’m planning on getting back into my fitness routine as soon as I return. The past year and a half has been quite the adventure in regards to fitness, with pregnancy and a new baby thrown into the mix. Thankfully there are facilities like VillaSport that make it SO easy to get back, or begin to, or continue to get into shape. VillaSport is a new athletic club & spa that just opened up in Cypress (a suburb north of Houston) and I had such a fun opportunity to tour it and get the scoop before it opened to the public last week.

    Today I’m walking y’all through the new VillaSport, sharing my go-to athletic wear and chatting about what keeps me motivated!

    10 Things to Do on a Hot Summer’s Day

    Isn’t this just this sweetest summertime look? I love how lightweight and airy this skirt feels. Perfect for hot hot hot Houston. I wore this outfit yesterday to the zoo with a few of my friends and their baby girls. Of course, I switched my wedges out with converse because … duh! We all met right when the zoo opened to take advantage of the morning temperatures but you know what, it was still so sweltering that we all only lasted about an hour! It’s this time of year where I really just want to stay shut-in indoors because it is just soooo¬†hot out in Houston. But that would get really old after a while!

    To avoid becoming a complete hermit, I’m rounding up 10 fun things you can do both indoors and outdoors to beat the Texas heat below! Now to remember to refer back to this list as often as possible! ūüėČ

    Our Stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

    One of the best things blogging full time has provided me with is … TIME! I recently went to Orlando with my mom and Annie for a week to attend the BlogHer Conference. Because I work from home or wherever really) I was able to add on a few days to this trip to spend some quality mother-daughter time exploring the best of Orlando! (Which we all know is Disney, duh!!) It was an unforgettable trip and I’m so thankful we were able to do it together!

    Our stay at Disney’s ¬†Animal Kingdom Lodge was purely magical, as is anything Disney really. I mean, it’s not every day that you wake up to a giraffe outside your window! Today I’m taking y’all on a safari adventure while sharing our stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge resort hotel.

    Falling in Love with J.Crew Again

    Houston fashion blogger styles a J.crew skirt & top for summer.

    Hello from the start of a new week! We laid pretty low this weekend, catching up on the house and spending quality time with our little family. It was a good thing we didn’t have any big plans¬†because Annie is in the middle of some serious teething! Her second tooth broke the surface sometime yesterday and we’ve just been doing everything since to make her feel better. Can y’all imagine what that must feel like as an adult!? OUCH!

    I’m bringing some summertime cheer to the blogosphere today with this bright & airy two-piece look. Mixing and matching different skits & tops has been my jam this summer! They’re both from J.Crew, and I have to say I’ve fallen in love with this brand all over again! (After quite the break!)
