Gingham Pixie Pants | OOTD

Have you ever had a pair of pants you love so much that you would try to pair them with just about anything? Yep, me too! For me right now its my Old Navy gingham pixie pants. They are so comfortable and can be dressed up or down easily. I’ve worn them with t-shirts, button downs, blouses, you name it! For this look I chose a textured gray long sleeve top that I fell in love with while I was in Europe during the summer. Leave me a comment about what pants you currently have on repeat. Enjoy!

10 Hair Styles for an Undercut

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!


  1. Top Knot

2. Side Braid

3. Side swept & down 

4. Straight back braid 

5. Ponytail 

6. Half up, half down 

7. Low ponytail (hidden under cut)

8. Low twisted side bun

9. Bow up do 

10. Messy bun

Weekend Wrap Up

This weekend was a blur! I was beyond busy with blogging and things around the house but all-in-all in was GREAT!! I met so many new people, had tons of fun, worked with amazing designers and photographers on photo shoots and even finished OITNB (Orange Is The New Black). Side Note: I can’t believe I have to wait another year for a new season. I’m more than sad about that!

All of my activities started Wednesday with hosting a private preview party at Mod Chic Boutique in Rice Village. I also hosted the Summer Garden Tea Party event at Mod Chic Boutique on Saturday. There is nothing like seeing peoples eyes light up when they lay their eyes on a garment that they know is perfect for them.


Sunday was soooo eventful! I started by attending the Brown Bloggers Brunch at Sweet Paris in City Center. The food was yummy and the company was amazing. Right after that, I traveled a few minutes away to the monthly Houston Bloggers Union meeting. There Elly, Jillian, and Jaclyn discussed ways to discover your value and monetize your blog. They were hilarious to listen to but more than that, they were honest in lending a hand to up and coming bloggers.



Lastly I was able to be a part of Designer Natalie Harris’s Damsel White Label Renegade Shoot Out. Natalie provided her out-of-the-box wedding gowns and models, while vendors brought in bouquets, flower crowns, and almost any prop you could imagine. Photographers were free to style their own shoots by selecting the gowns, models, etc.


When I finally got home I was truly exhausted but I honestly don’t regret one minute of it! Cheers to busy weekends, Enjoy the recap!

 

Back to Basics | OOTD

You slept through your alarm or didn’t set it. You hit the snooze 4 times and now you’re going to be late! When you’re in a rush and you need to get out of the house quickly go back to your basics. Black, white, a crew neck t-shirt, and jeans always do the trick for me. I don’t have to worry about matching, other colors, or it being comfy. It’s all so easy and best of all, you can’t mess it up. Lol

Leave me a comment of what you grab out of your closet when you’re really short on time. Enjoy!

Mellow Yellow | OOTD

This outfit of the day was inspired by laziness! I had somewhere to go but because I’m on summer break, everyday feels like a t-shirt and jeans day to me. Rather than fight it, I went with it. I grabbed my most comfortable pair of mid-rise jeans from Old Navy and a fancier version of a t-shirt. I got this yellow top from H & M a year ago and honestly I haven’t worn it very much. It do really like the top and it came in handy. It has a nice delicate detail around the V-neck of the collar and an easy cap sleeve.  Although I look pulled together I felt very comfortable which was the goal. I threw on a pair of low comfy heels, grabbed my purse and was on my way.

Leave me a comment and let me know what your “go to” lazy day outfit is? Enjoy!
