Pastel Pairs

So...I think Spring is everyones favorite season of the year. (well mine at least) Time to shop for swimsuits, skirts, shorts, dresses, sandals, etc. Most of all, keeping up those flawless manicures and pedicures. I'm so girly. Ha! According to Stylesight - one of the world's most popular trend forecasting sites, pastel tones aren't going anywhere this Spring. In a good way! We can prepare to see more digital florals, and of course denim throughout the upcoming and current Spring/Summer seasons. I couldn't just choose one good pastel outfit, so I styled four. Which look is your favorite? Hard to choose just one right? 

Lately, I have been seeing lingerie style tops paired with denim or joggers, so I think if I just had to pick one, I'd pick #3. I like simple/casual chic. Plus, I have a similar distressed denim skirt in the mail on the way to me riiight now - and I just scored these gorgeous pastel pink Zara heels

Pineapple Craze


Lunch @ Grand Lux 
with upcoming Houston stylist - Tori 







So, my first (not so) post featuring my short hair! I can honestly say that I'm loving wearing my own hair, although I DO miss the extensions. Oh well. Anyway, I caught up with and old friend that I haven't seen in agessssss - Victoria! We also used to work together..ever since then she's been doing her thing as well. I really wasn't planning on doing a post this day, but I liked my outfit and I got so many compliments on my skirt, so I posted the iPhone photos :/ We decided to snap a few pics after lunch before heading to an InStyle Magazine event at Nine West. So much fun!

Gone For A Minute





Leopard Sweater: XXI / Moto Jacket: BCBGENERATON / Jeans: XXI / Heels: Zara / Lipstick: Rebel by MAC


I'm back! Again... I wanted to start the new year off right with a new blog layout design (which took some time) and I'm glad it's finally complete! There have been a lot of changes, and I'm ready to get going again!  The next two blog post you will see are shoots from before I finally decided to leave the extensions alone for a while and rock my real hair :) Can't wait for you guys to see what's next! The weather in TX has been so freaking moody, so "sweater weather" is pretty much still relevant. I've been so attracted to different types of moto jackets lately so I might just throw one on just to add a little bit of edge. Definitely a statement piece. These old jeans, you'll probably see a thousand more times..I mean. We all have that one favorite pair that makes our bottoms look nice..

24 And Counting. . .

Day 1: So...I can truly say that bringing in my 24th birthday was probably one of the most fun times of my life yet. My original birthday was last Sunday December 8th and I spent the whole weekend with my boyfriend, pretty much. We really enjoyed dinner at Spindletop in downtown Houston! It's guaranteed that you won't make it out of there with a bill less than $100. Lobster, shrimp, chicken ALL in one plate?! It was all worth it though..



We ended the night by having a few drinks at Proof Bar + Lounge. It was a little rainy that night but we still enjoyed ourselves! Plus, they have THE cutest patio lounge area. "I Love You.."

I felt very lively in this dress! I wanted to feel holiday[ish] and birthday[ish] at the same time, so I went with green sequins..I styled him btw. He forgot his tie clip, but it's all good. 
Dress: Missguided.co.uk Shoes: [that you can't see, Christian Louboutin "Bianca" pump Des is wearing: H&M 

DAY 2: We had brunch at The Grove in Hermann Park - also in downtown Houston. I they have the best atmosphere ever! Very modern/classic like..perfect for brunch with the girls, or even afternoon dates with your guy. If I could eat there every week, I probably would. Mimosas are always a win.



Dessert was DELICIOUS! I believe this was caramel crunch cake with vanilla ice cream. (insert tongue licking emoji here)


He hates this pic, but I love it. So, who cares :)


You can't go to Hermann Park without taking a picture in front of this color blocked wall. (after brunch)

Birthday Weekend pt. 2 Featuring the girls: @ SAINT GENEVIEVE 


Yesterday marked exactly one week since I turned 24..but I couldn't celebrate it without some girlfriends! We enjoyed brunch (again) and MORE mimosas at Saint Genevieve. Like it was STILL my birthday..


Bottomless is what got us started..


Obviously, I was enjoying myself after a few mimosas.. and pretty excited about my S'mores dessert. Love you gals!

Thank you girls for ensuring my birthday weekend(s) ended with a BANG!

Fashion Houston 2013 Recap

Fashion Houston 2013 was definitely a week of fashion festivities that you wouldn't have wanted to miss! It's the one time a year in November where fashionistas and fashionistos gather together and enjoy the latest fashions from the best designers from all over the world. Just like the past four years, Fashion Houston always takes place at the Wortham Theater Center in downtown Houston. I got the chance to intern with White Park Media during all four days of Fashion Houston and enjoyed every single day of the experience! My responsibility as the Social Media Coordinator was to monitor and show the tweets as well as Instagram photos that were tagged as #FashionHouston on the big screen right above the runway. Yeah...pretty awesome! :) Although I had a lot of work to do, I still managed to get near the runway to snap a few quick pics of my favorite designs.

The calm before the storm. Fashion Houston being setup before the fashionable night starts!


I've decided to show you photos of the two runway shows that I really enjoyed! Haute Hippie and David Peck. 


Haute Hippie showcased beautiful snazzy pieces from their Spring 2014 collection that caught the eye. I literally felt like the look on my face after each model was the iPhone emoji with hearts in each eye. The line was served to us on the runway with sexy silhouettes and bold, tasteful embellishments that flowed together so beautifully model after model. 

  
Haute Hippie Spring 2014 collection was all about different hues of nudes, black, burnt orange, reds, and pops of pinks.  
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DAVID PECK


David Peck is one designer that I will always respect and find inspiration from. Simply because he's a young designer with a showroom right here in Houston, and every piece is made right here in Houston. Yep, made in the USA. Texas, to be exact. After each show was over, the designers of each line came out for an appearance. I felt that this was amazing because every designer each had their own personal story about their line. But none showed appreciation like David Peck.


Mixed prints and patterns is something to get familiar with during the upcoming seasons!


This was one of my favorites! (I think everything was) wardrobed together with a matching top and bottoms, with black lining along the buttons of the top, and lining along the sides to give off a tuxedo look paired together with a black fur coat to tone down the bold prints...just a little bit. 


By the end of the show, David Peck was walking down the runway with his whole team of seamstresses and back of the house workers that make everything happen for us. Seeing this really inspired me because David Peck really wanted to show everyone how much he appreciates his employees and people behind the scenes that make all the magic happen for the lines. 


I truly enjoyed every night of Fashion Houston as it was a great time to mix and mingle with new and old friends, meet new people and make connections! Here is the official lineup of every night's shows. Check out fashionhouston.net for more information on this year's events, as well as last year's. 

Hope to see you at Fashion Houston 2014! Thanks for reading. xoxo

You Nasty Gal,You

So..Nasty Gal has decided to launch their first ever shoe line "Shoe Cult" earlier this month that has me convincing myself that I should get a pair because "I deserve it." Yeah right, I do..but I'm also a shoe addict! The line itself has about 45 different shoe styles that are ridiculously amazing. I ordered the Zuri Cutout Bootie OBSESSED! I won't get them delivered until Tuesday :/ so I decided to put together a few outfits that I'd wear with mine to make me feel better about having to wait for them to get on my feet.


best $88 I've spent! 








Which one is YOUR favorite?! Feel free to share your opinions below!
