BlogHer 2017 in Orlando, FL

    One of my big blogging goals this year was to attend a blog conference. I knew with a new baby that this might be tricky. Thank goodness for my fabulous mom (her babysitting skills & encouragement) because I was able to head on down to Orlando for this year’s BlogHer17 conference, with Annie in tow! We turned a 3-day conference into a long and leisurely trip to Florida by maxing out all of our down time and adding on a few extra days for fun. (See our stay at Animal Kingdom here.) In today’s post, I’m chatting all about the conference, what I wore (naturally) and why The Waldorf Astoria makes the most fabbbbulous conference location of all time.

    Back to the Grind in Gingham

    Casual and cool in a black tshirt dress with a gingham hem & addidas sneakers.

    The first day back from a long vacation is always both a little rough and a little exciting at the same time. Rough as in … I’d so much rather be reading my book on the patio overlooking the beach right about now. And exciting as in … I’m back in the comforts of my own home, I have so many friends I want to catch up with and sometime’s it’s just fun to get back to blog work. Today I’m keeping it casual and cool in this little gingham t-shirt dress and chatting about why dresses like these are some of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe. {Plus you won’t believe this gingham number’s price point!}

    Beach Ready in a White Midi Dress

    Texas blogger styles a white chichwish midi dress with a straw basket for summer.

    Hello from sunny Florida! I’m blogging from the back porch of our beach house this morning with a view of the waves crashing only 50 yards away or so. Can I do this every morning, pretty please!? It’s been so nice to get away from the daily grind and relax with family. Annie has so many aunts, uncles, and grandparents with us this week that I feel like I’ve hardly gotten a chance to cuddle her too! She hasn’t been put down a second with all the love around here!

    In honor of being at the beach, I’m sharing a beachy inspired look with a dress I’ve worn all summer long! I’m chatting about why this dress is an absolute MUST plus sharing a few more details on what we’ve been up to in Florida below!

    Why I Went Balayage

    Houston fashion blogger Alice Kerley.

    I mentioned it on insta-stories a few weeks back and you might have noticed the change in recent blog + instagram posts but today I’m finally chatting about my new ‘do! After spending the first 28 years of my life with the same hair color, I thought I’d try something different this summer & change things up.

    I popped on over to the new Vanity Salon in The Heights to get my hair balayage-d. I’m chatting about why I decided to do it & my thoughts on the new look below. I’m also sharing fun details on next week’s Height’s White Linen Night & how Vanity Salon is making the event extra special this year!

    Monday Motivation: A Visit to VillaSport

    Six02 Workout Outfit

    How’s about a little dose of Monday motivation to kick off a new week?! While I’m still very much in vacation mode (you can follow on instagram and you’ll see some snaps of our current beach trip!) I’m planning on getting back into my fitness routine as soon as I return. The past year and a half has been quite the adventure in regards to fitness, with pregnancy and a new baby thrown into the mix. Thankfully there are facilities like VillaSport that make it SO easy to get back, or begin to, or continue to get into shape. VillaSport is a new athletic club & spa that just opened up in Cypress (a suburb north of Houston) and I had such a fun opportunity to tour it and get the scoop before it opened to the public last week.

    Today I’m walking y’all through the new VillaSport, sharing my go-to athletic wear and chatting about what keeps me motivated!

    10 Things to Do on a Hot Summer’s Day

    Isn’t this just this sweetest summertime look? I love how lightweight and airy this skirt feels. Perfect for hot hot hot Houston. I wore this outfit yesterday to the zoo with a few of my friends and their baby girls. Of course, I switched my wedges out with converse because … duh! We all met right when the zoo opened to take advantage of the morning temperatures but you know what, it was still so sweltering that we all only lasted about an hour! It’s this time of year where I really just want to stay shut-in indoors because it is just soooo hot out in Houston. But that would get really old after a while!

    To avoid becoming a complete hermit, I’m rounding up 10 fun things you can do both indoors and outdoors to beat the Texas heat below! Now to remember to refer back to this list as often as possible! 😉
