Retro Sport Tees & Denim


When you put Grant and I together we are “Awesome Optimists!” I’ve partnered with Old Navy to bring you a retro back to school look that you’ll LOVE! With fall and a new school year just around the corner it’s time time start stocking up on your favorite denim and tees from Old Navy.

With retro graphic tees making a return, finding them in bright fun colors will make your final days of summer the best. The fun colors don’t have to stop at the tees. Go ahead and bring in a bit more on the bottom ladies by wearing a bold floral print to celebrate the end of summer. Don’t forget that wearing a skirt or dress doesn’t always equal fancy shoes. I am the self proclaimed queen of sneakers and dresses and I approve this message! Ha ha!

Grant adores graphic tees with sports pictures on them so when I took him to pick shirts he ran straight to this one. He’s so independent now that I must not stop him from choosing his outfit for the day. His 24/7 Karate jeans are so soft and flexible that he can do all the jumps and kicks that he wants! Just like most times, it turned out wonderfully!

Shop Grant and I’s look and be sure to tag me in your photos! Enjoy Colour Bees!

Summer Dress- Orange Sorbet

I’m partnering with Ann Taylor to bring you style to help keep you cool during this Houston summer! If you want to be cool you have to think cool thoughts and do cool things! One of the things you can do is dress in clothing that will keep you cool. Light colored clothing in breathable fabrics work best. I call this look orange sorbet because its light sweet tones remind me of that refreshing summer treat! Check out Ann Taylor to shop this look.

Tropical Shirt Dress

This tropical shirt dress might be the solution to your vacation packing problem! If you always over pack like I tend to, be more intentional about choosing clothes that do many jobs. 1. I can wear this shirt dress open over a swimsuit for a cover up. 2.Of course I can wear it like it is for an outfit and 3. I can also wear it as a top with shorts. This is one piece that functions as at least three different things!
