A Bluebonnet Filled Day Trip to Brenham

    Where to take blue bonnet pictures outside of Houston, Texas.

    Bluebonnets are synonymous with springtime in Texas. These bright blue flowers dot the countryside of the Lone Star State and Texans (& tourists alike) flock to see & snap their own photos of these pretty flowers each year. It’s a quintessential Texas experience.  (As is snapping a photo of yourself in the field too!)

    Today I’m sharing the best place to see and snap bluebonnets outside of Houston. An hour long road trip isn’t complete without a stop for lunch, a bit of shopping & a whole lot of ice cream right? I’m also sharing highlights of our day trip to Brenham, right in the heart of the land of bluebonnets.

    A Gorgeous Garden Shirtdress

    Houston blogger styles Draper James Hilltop Garden Shirt Dress in a green floral print.

    I’m currently sitting beneath dozens of oak trees just dripping with Spanish moss blowing in the wind. New Orleans sure is beautiful, and I could get used to this! I’m writing this post from City Park, a quintessential New Orleans spot, while sipping on chicory coffee and munching beignets from Morning Call, a 24 hour coffee & beignet joint that’s just as fabulous as the famous cafe du monde.

    While I could write about New Orleans all day, and trust me I plan to, today’s post is not about Nola but about this fabulous floral dress! Nothing beats florals come springtime. And when it comes to pretty printed floral frocks, Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James takes the cake! I’ve been swooning over the spring collection and when I got an opportunity to style a piece from it this season, I basically flipped!

    I’m sharing how I styled this look & also chatting about how a dress like this one will answer all of your outfit dilemmas when it comes to special occasions this time of year.

    Off-the-Shoulder Stripes

    Houston blogger styles a striped moon river off the shoulder dress with a boater hat and Cult Gaia bag.

    Today’s post is all about a dress! Like I mentioned in last week’s style post, I’ve been living in flowy tops and tunics lately. They’re easy & comfortable for a new mom. Dresses for that matter can be quite tricky. All except for this one! & I’m telling you why below!

    My New Mom Uniform

    Houston blogger styles an outfit for spring: white true religion jeans, sole society wedges, a blue and black colorblocked chicwish top with a cult gaia handbag.

    Every time I walk into my closet I find myself gravitating towards the exact same type of outfit: stretchy skinny jeans and a big flowy tunic top. (That is … on the days that I actually plan to leave the house!) This look has officially become my “uniform” of sorts. Having a baby only two months ago, it’s not like I’m ready to be in tight tops or bodycon dresses anytime soon. But let’s be honest, it’s not like I wore those before baby anyway…so this new uniform of mine totally works for me!

    I’m sharing one of my favorite new-mom friendly looks and rounding up a few flowy tunic tops that I’m majorly crushing on – all in today’s post!

    Grillin’ & Chillin’: 3 Recipes For Your Next Dinner Party


    Spring in Texas is what I imagine summer feels like everywhere else. This is the time of year where we fire up the grill and spend our evenings chilling outdoors. This past weekend, Patrick and I did just that! We stepped out on the patio, opened up a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, and set out to grill a three-course dinner.

    Everything turned out oh-so-delicious, that I naturally had to share it with y’all! So I’m teaming up with H-E-B today to give you my recipes for Grilled Romaine Caesar Salad, Grilled Sweet Chilli Pineapple Chicken (so good!) followed by Grilled Pineapple & Ice Cream for dessert. These three dishes go perfectly together and make for a great spread for your next dinner party!
