Hello from Memphis! I’m typing this post from my parent’s couch while my mom and I have Into the Woods on in the background. I definitely get my show tunes fix when I hang out with her! Anywho, I could go on & on about my love for show tunes all day (really, I could) but instead I’m sharing the deets on this under $40 striped eyelet top. I’m also chatting about my favorite pair of shoes in my closet right now & the biggest hairstyle cheat that I’ve ever discovered! Head on down for more!
I knew dressing a baby girl would be fun, but I really had no idea HOW much fun it actually would be! Annie’s closet is starting to overflow almost as much as her momma’s, but I blame that on how fast she’s growing! How is this little girl already in 6-month clothes!? Since I’ve been doing a bit more shopping for her than usual lately … blaming it on the growth spurt 😉 … I thought I’d do a little roundup of some of my favorite things I’ve bought for her. I’m also sharing baby goodies I’m just plain crushing on!
If I were a piece of clothing, I’d probably be a midi-skirt. For some reason, I just love this silhouette! Maybe it’s because it evokes the everyday style of a different era? Reminds me of my grandma? Or that they just exude a certain feminine elegance even in the most casual of prints & styles. I’m sharing details on this look with Anthropologie today, chatting about different ways to style these ankle-skimming skirts & sharing a bit about my Mother’s Day weekend all below!
New Orleans is on the blog again today! I’m sharing a look into our stay at the Royal Sonesta, a gorgeous four-star hotel located smack dab in the middle of the famous Bourbon Street. I’m also chatting about my “resort style.” Which means I’m basically sharing the cuuuuutest swim cover up & one piece that you’ve got to see!
Sunday marks my first official Mother’s Day. I still can’t believe I’m a mom! Annie is almost four months old and while everyday life with her is my new normal, I continue to be in awe of the fact that she’s real, she’s mine and we’re going to be together forever!
To celebrate Mother’s Day, I had the exciting opportunity to be featured on the Draper James blog this week where I’m chatting all about my first Mother’s Day as a mom. It was so much fun to be a part of, so be sure to check out the feature! 🙂 Since I’m covering Mother’s Day and details on this look elsewhere, I’m sharing my thoughts on how motherhood has changed me these past four months here on Lone Star Looking Glass today.
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.
