    Texas on My Mind – How You Can Help Those Affected by Harvey

    rifle paper co texas flowers

    There really are no words to describe what is going on in Houston right now. The news has a few: “catastrophic, unprecedented, & indescribable.” My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the city, from the first responders to those in shelters, to those watching the water creep up their driveways. It seems that nobody is out of the clear just yet and it’s absolutely terrifying. Thank goodness there are so many ways that we can help those in Houston even though we are so far away. I’m sharing details on that, how we are holding up and why I think Houston will get through this stronger than ever! More below.

    Embroidered Denim + White Lace

    Texas fashion blogger styles an embroidered denim skirt and lace crop top with Chic Wish.

    Shop the Look:

    Well, today certainly went a bit different than planned! I woke up bright and early to get a little blog work in before I was set to meet some girlfriends for a coffee + museum date. Before I checked my email for the day, I checked the weather. What was once Tropical Storm Harvey is now Hurricane Harvey and it’s headed straight for the Texas Coast. After a lot of back and forth and finally making a decision, Patrick, Annie, the pups & I are headed north to Mississippi to ride out the storm in safety with our out-of-town family. What a day!!

    With a seven hour drive ahead of us, I thought why not crank out this blog post and lighten the mood with a cute outfit? (Plus blogging/writing is totally taking my mind off of freaking out about leaving our home behind with mother nature’s fate upon it.) So instead, I’m chatting all about why this denim midi skirt is a great wear now & later piece. Plus I’m also sharing a bit more on our plans for the week and how we’re planning on handling Harvey. Quite the juxtaposition!

    {Iced} Coffee Chats + A Flirty Denim Skirt

    Texas blogger styles a Draper James denim skirt with a red striped bell sleeve top.

    Shop the Look:

    I’ve noticed a fun little trend in the blogosphere pop up these last couple of months. Coffee. And no, not just pretty lattes surrounded by colorful purses and flowers on instagram. It seems that bloggers are using coffee as a way to invite their readers into their life a little bit more. Like, “Hey girl, want to grab a cup of coffee and just chat?!” As opposed to come on over to my blog and hear me ramble about this outfit! 😉

    So today I’m inviting y’all on over to Lone Star Looking Glass for a cup of {iced} coffee and a little chit chat about what’s been going on behind the blog. Of course, I’m sharing details on this precious fall transitional look with Draper James too! Head on down for more…..

    Annie at Seven Months + a Freshly Picked Giveaway

    Mother daughter matching white bumblebee tops in Victoria Beckham for Target.

    It’s Annie’s seven month birthday today! She’s been by my side for a little over half a year now. My goodness, how time flies!! We’ve been oh-so-busy this summer, that it’s no surprise that her 6-month update didn’t even make the cut. {oops!} But don’t worry, I snapped plenty of pictures of Annie at six-months that she will never have to question exactly what she looked like at this precious little age. 😉 Today I’m chatting all about how life has been lately with my darling little girl. I’m giving an update on “All Things Annie” and I’m also sharing the details on a fun little baby moccasin (or mary jane) giveaway for you all too! Details below!
