Thank you Koh Gen Do for inviting me out to join behind-the-scenes for Fashion X HOUSTON. I was busy with work and life so I was unable to see the 1st and 2nd night of fashion but the final night of Fashion X HOUSTON did not disappoint. It was filled with talented designers that poured their hearts and souls into every single garment that came down the runway. I had to skip out right at the intermission so not all of the designers that presented are shown in this post.
What I enjoyed the most is being amongst so many smiling faces both familiar and new. Everyone looked beautiful and the positive energy matched the prints, stunning colors, and unique designs that hit the runway. Enjoy!
What says girl power more than a graphic tee that tells you that “the future is female!?”
The answer to that is NOTHING! I’m so smitten over this casual look that is ultra feminine that shows so much strength. It is not bright and colorful but the text on the tee definitely catches your attention. The lace on the skirt screams “girly girl” while the sneakers tell you that “she’s ready to take on the world!” (Or just some brunch and shopping (-:)
As for accessories, I wanted to go with sparkly stones in my earrings to add to the feminine side of this look. The purse and lip color is the pop of color in this outfit. (I had to put the color in somewhere) Let me know what you think of this look!
My summer vacation as a teacher has officially ended. I had my first day back to school and I am so tired. I always say, “There is no tired like the first day of school tired.” As I prepared this blog post all I can think about is how often we ask our children to be “nice” to each other. At school and at home it is a word that I used generously.
I find that as adults we tend to forget about being nice to ourselves! We do things we don’t like, each foods that make us feel bad sometimes and wear clothes that our bodies find restricting. We should all take a moment or two to think about how we can be nice to ourselves and try to remember to do that often.
For me, dressing comfortably especially when I’m with my son is one way that I’m nice to myself. Old Navy sponsored this look that allows me to run and play with my son while I look stylish. There is nothing worse than pulling and tugging on your clothing while you’re trying to focus on having a good time with your babies. A colorful comfortable pull over with boyfriend jeans and sandals that stay on you feet if just right for a day of fun and play. Find ways to be kind to yourself and do it daily! Enjoy!
We all know skinny jeans are a wardrobe staple for men and women alike. If we’re going to have them in heavy rotation in our closets, shouldn’t they be the best? By the best I mean the perfect wash, uber comfortable AND holds their shape ALL DAY! Ann Taylor gave us some major upgrades in their skinny fit and it is beyond amazing.
We have all started our morning in the perfect pair of skinnies only to find by noon that we have baggy knee syndrome. With maximum stretch and recovery your skinnies from Ann Taylor will look fresh all day long.
For this Ann Taylor look I wanted a fun brunch look. Skinny denim is a no brainer but my double V knit top is the icing on the cake. It’s an amazing pop of orange color and the sliver of pink on the hem and sleeves is just so sweet.
I’m always looking for ways to add in textures, prints, and patterns and I was able to do that with my accessories. Ann Taylor’s floral statement earrings have so much dimension and texture. They help take my classic look to another level. To take this look up another notch, I added in a leopard fold over clutch. Lastly, a pair of multi colored striped wedge shoes sealed the deal.
When ever you feel like taking your classic look to new heights be sure that you have on your best Ann Taylor denim and spice it up with unique accessories. Enjoy!
This is a flash blog post!! (Meaning that I wrote it past midnight and I have work in the morning!)
I just got back from my vacation and I couldn’t hold on to this a amazing deal any longer! I found this AMAZING orange halter top two piece swimsuit with amazing details on Amazon for $8! You read that right, I said $8 y’all!!!
I always browse Amazon for good deals but when I stumbled upon this one I couldn’t believe it. I was fumbling over the keyboard of my computer trying to order it as fast as I could. The swim material is great and the construction is sound. I wasn’t worried about loosing my top as I had fun and that’s a big deal. When you have a full chest like I do, that is on the top of your list of concerns. Lol
