The Monday morning after a weekend getaway is either rough or refreshing. Right now, I’m finding that it’s a little bit of both! Coffee certainly helps, that’s for sure. Our Hill Country getaway was beyond amazing and I’m already planning a trip back. (Well, I’m daydreaming about planning one, so that counts for something!) No matter the Monday morning hangover from an above average weekend, mini-getaways are good for the soul.
Today I’m sharing my take on casual weekend style, why everyone in the world seems to be obsessed with cactus prints lately and sharing details on a pair of affordable denim shorts that fall at just the right length.
Happy Cinco de Mayo! I love any excuse to pull out my favorite Mexican-inspired embroidered pieces and eat queso & tacos! Who doesn’t!? I must admit, in years past I blindly celebrated the holiday without really knowing what it actually was. The fifth of May marks the day that Mexico defeated the French in 1862. It is also a day that both Mexicans and Americans alike celebrate Mexican culture. Living in Houston, that is something I pretty much do on a daily basis! Mexican heritage has a huge influence on local cuisine and more specifically my diet! (I had tacos for lunch and fajitas for dinner yesterday, for example!)
Today I’m sharing a look fit for a Cinco de Mayo celebration & I’m also rounding up some of my favorite Houston Mexican restaurants below. I’m sure these spots are going to be absolutely packed this evening, but they’re definitely ones to check out no matter the date on the calendar!
I love a good outfit post and clothing review more than anybody. I am a fashion blogger after all. But you know what I love just as much? A good hotel review & travel diary read! It’s one thing to see a styled outfit on someone’s blog, but to see that same outfit out & about in the “real world” is another thing entirely. (And makes for a more enjoyable post to read.) And of course I’m referring to other blogs I read, but I do hope you all enjoy this one too! Today I’m chatting about this outfit, my recent Mother/Daughter trip to New Orleans & our stay at the W French Quarter. This hotel was trendy, quirky, unexpected and amazing all at the same time. More New Orleans eye candy below!
Doubling up on denim is a trend I can totally get behind, especially when it comes in shades of blue & white! I’m sharing my favorite tips & tricks on styling any shade of denim with Minnetonka today! (Can y’all believe the makers of my favorite moccasins also created these denim wedges beauties? And yep, they’re just as comfortable as moccasins too!)
Head on down below to see more of how I styled this “chic version of a Canadian tuxedo” plus my favorite tips for pulling off the trend yourself!
I still can’t believe that I’ll be celebrating Mother’s Day this year as an actual real-life MOM! While I’m looking forward to spending the day with Patrick and Annie, I can’t forget about my own Mom! We’ll be celebrating the day from afar but I already have a bunch of goodies that I can’t wait to send her way. Now that I’m a mother too, this day is extra special because I totally understand what all goes into motherhood. And oh my goodness … it’s a lot! Moms definitely deserved to be pampered on Mother’s Day!
Speaking of pampering, I had the fun opportunity to receive a Babbleboxx filled with curated gifts for any mom. From the sweetest smelling lotion to a personalized necklace & a gift that is 100% all their own, I’m chatting about four products that will make any mama smile this Mother’s Day. Continue reading
There’s nothing like a pretty dress, flowers and bright blue heels to distract you from the fact that you just checked back into reality after vacation! Oh my goodness, our trip to Palo Duro Canyon & Amarillo was beyond fabulous! I had such fun getting away with just Patrick & Annie. Definitely good for the soul. Now that I’m back to my “routine” (I’m still not quite convinced I actually have one yet) I’m blogging away once more.
I’m sharing my thoughts today on why everyone should have a stand out colored pair of heels in their closet & how to style them. Plus more of this look with this pretty Paper Crown dress that you’re gonna want to see! Head on down to the bottom of the post for more.
