Cinco de Mayo Style + My Favorite Houston Mexican Restaurants

    Houston fashion blogger styles a boho embroidered crop top with a green midi skirt.

    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!

    Good Ol’ Gingham + the W French Quarter

    Anthropologie Gingham Off the Shoulder Sundress in New Orleans French Quarter

    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!

And yep, they’re just as comfortable as moccasins too!)

    Mother's Day Gift Ideas with Babblebox

    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.

    The Gingham Trend

    How to style a gingham tunic top. Gingham outfit ideas.

    I’m no stranger to gingham. It’s safe to say a quarter of my #OOTDs involve this pretty print. Fun fact, gingham originated in Europe in the 18th century. From 1960s mod dresses to picnic tables & aprons and even Dorothy’s famous blue & white gingham dress, gingham is a classic that has stood the test of time. One thing I love about this classic print is the trendy twists we’ve put on it today. Like this collared bell sleeve tunic top. Talk about a trendy silhouette!

    Talking all about gingham, this steal of a top & a little life update below!
