It’s definitely cooling down in Houston now. We are over the hump of blazing temperatures in the hundreds and we’re focused on fall. Texas doesn’t have true seasons so we’ll need to focus on using our summer pieces to transition to fall.
In this OOTD, I’m wearing a strapless jumper that I love from summer. It’s not neon pink so that helps it not scream summer. The color of your transition pieces will help determine if you give off a “Fall” vibe. Next, layer on top of your summer favorites to help make your look a bit more toasty. I chose to add my tried and true moto jacket on top of my jumper. I could even through on a scarf but it isn’t quite cool enough for that yet. As a rule of thumb, add one layer to a summer piece to help it transition to fall. Leave me a comment about how you transition summer pieces to fall, Enjoy!
Some people call this OOTD matchy-matchy but I call it monochrome. It’s hard to mess it up and comes off super chic. Monochrome looks are a great was to start transitioning to fall. You can do it with most colors with out looking insane and it’s simple to do. I joke that it’s for the stylish and the lazy but both are true! Lol
I adore the muted worn green of this utility top and pant because it’s not a true hunter green. It will keep you cool during the final warm days of summer but can easily be comfy and cozy for fall. You can even layer it with a vest or bomber jacket for added warmth later in the year. Pair it with strappy heels now and booties when it’s cool. This look is really a win win for many seasons. Enjoy!
The other day someone told me that I had a brave haircut. I smiled and on the inside I wished everyone felt like they could do something brave with their hair. You may think having an undercut would really limit how you can style your hair but for me the possibilities seem endless. I put together a snapshot of ten styles I could create with an undercut and box braids. Hopefully this will give you the push you need to do something “Brave” with your hair. Leave me a comment about which style is your favorite. Enjoy!
I know it’s still very warm in Houston but Fall will be here before you know it. You’ll miss all the brightly colored prints that came with spring and summer so add these five pieces to your fall wardrobe to keep it versatile.
1. Puffy Vest (Old Navy)
Perfect for chilly mornings and warmer afternoons.
As many of you know our family appeared on HGTV’s House Hunters earlier this year. When we began filming we weren’t even close to being ready to move in. While we were still prepping, I was able to knock out small projects that were fun, easy to do and inexpensive. Let’s be real, renovations are not cheap so I was definitely looking for projects that would make a real impact for not a lot of cash.
This easy DIY helps you provide a serious upgrade to your cabinets that are easy to change anytime you want. Our home was built in the 1920’s so everything isn’t perfect but it will last forever. Our cabinets don’t have backing so to spice it up a bit I created patterned backings to make the bare wall look amazing. To start gather large card board boxes, scissors, fabric of your choice, a tape measure and a hot glue gun.
Measure the length and width of the inside of your cabinets.
Once you have those measurements, cut out card board pieces in the exact measurement and shape of you cabinets.
Take your fabric and make sure too cut a section that will cover the front of the card and slightly fold over the edges and corners.
Use your hot glue gun to glue the fabric to the card board on all four sides and let it cool.
Carefully insert the covered part so that your fabric is visible inside the cabinet.
Press it firmly into the back of the cabinet until its snug.
Repeat these directions until you cover all or part of your backings.
I hope you found this cabinet upgrade simple to do. It can pack a real punch in an otherwise ugly or boring cabinet. Leave me a comment and upload photos to show me how this easy DIY worked for you. Enjoy!
