Fashion X HOUSTON 

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! 

Retro Floral | Outfit of the Day

Sometimes when I thrift shop I find nothing. Other times it is obvious that the thrift gods are on my side. I was able to get this beautiful print for less than $5 from a resale shop. To make things even better, I got these wide leg high rise jeans from Target for about $9. I’ve had these wedge sandals for about three years (but they came from target) and my friends over at Charming Charlie hooked me up with the accessories. My necklace, sunglasses and tote was sponsored by Charming Charlie.

Not only is this look super comfortable, the retro vibes feel really good.

High Waisted Push Up Bikini | Outfit Of The Day

If you’re looking for a high waisted push up bikini for this swim season I’ve found two that I think you’ll love from Zaful.com . You may remember my high waisted push up bikini from last swim season that came from Old Navy. I’ve remixed that same swimsuit  this year by simply adding a fun summer bananas graphic t-shirt over it to give it a new look.

Sometimes when you head out to the pool you can feel a bit exposed. You’re basically in your underwear so layering a cool t-shirt on top of your swim top could be the answer to feeling more clothed at the pool this summer. Leave me a comment about your favorite swim looks and ways to not feel so naked at the pool. Enjoy!

Peach Mesh Dress |OOTD

This OOTD is in honor of transitioning between seasons. We are in the midst of spring with summer around the corner. All I can think about is getting my hands on cute spring pieces that will take me well into summer. Things that will keep me cool and dry along with bright bold colors. This Only Girl Strapless Shift Dress sponsored by Tobi is on Sale for $13 bucks and is too dang cute to pass up. It has mesh paneling at the midriff area and hem. How often have you seen that? Seems perfect for the beach huh?

The color is stunning and it moves so well. Being in Houston makes me appreciate a garments that flows and has great ventilation. (Ha ha) This dress has both and is uber stylish. Anytime I’m wearing something that is a solid color I love to spice it up with even more color or prints. The glasses I’m wearing in this look adds contrast and color that I look for in my styling. A simple gold necklace from Charm Envy, a pair of gold shoes from Ippo, and an Elaine Turner bag completed this look.

Fashion Resolutions | OOTD

It’s nearly February and I am doing well on my new year improvements but I have yet to make any concrete fashion resolutions. I was recently inspired by Bonobos.com to share some of my fashion resolutions for 2017 because they’re focusing on varied textures and the perfect fit for their new collection.

Just like any other improvements, writing things down make it more visible to you and keeps you reminded of your goals. It will be nice to look back on this blog post months from now to see how I’m sticking to my plans as well as how I change through out the year.

My first fashion resolution is to include more textures into my wardrobe. I plan to do this by taking my fuzzy sweater collection to the next level. (Ha ha!) Seriously though, having a piece that is more textured and not just a cotton blend will really help add interest to an entire look. In this OOTD, a mock neck fuzzy sweater with an interesting side slit does it for me.

My second resolution is to experiment more with monochromatic looks. I love this look on others as well as myself, but I find it tough to make sure my “blacks match” Lol Outside of that color, there is a lot of room for styling similar colors together to achieve a monochromatic look with out it matching “perfectly.” I met this goal in this OOTD by choosing a pant that is a few shades darker than my sweater.

My final fashion resolution for 2017 is to consistently add in bold accessories to give my entire look a pulled together feel with flare. The bold gold earrings and rosy sunglasses make this look feel complete with a slightly retro vibe. Most popular sunnies nowadays are super reflective or completely opaque so I’m stepping outside of the box with floral print sunnies.

I’m sure it will be a challenge to consistently incorporate theses elements into my looks but I welcome it!  As always, the details for this look are listed below with links. I’d love it if you left me a comment about your fashion resolutions. Enjoy!
