Palazzos + Sunnies

Fashion

Finally, the weather is hot in Houston, as it should be in the springtime. I went on a lunch date with a blogger friend at Jinya Ramen Bar and we ended up taking a stroll around the River Oaks District after. It was sweltering hot, but I still wanted to dress cute for our date, so I’ve put together a look that’s lightweight and super stylish. I’m obsessed with these floral pants from the Rainbow Shop, which has now become my go-to for palazzos.

To all my women traveling in the summer, these light and airy pants are perfect for you! Not to mention, they would look great for a day at the beach.

Olive has just become my new favorite color. The gorgeous earthy color goes perfectly with the floral theme, not to mention you can pair it with all neutral colored pants.

I’m obsessed with this ring bracelet from Charlotte Russe. It gives this outfit the extra flare it needs, and goes so well with my golden sunnies.

Champagne satin pumps were the elegant touch this outfit needed. Since I wore pinks and greens, I decided to go with nude pumps to tie it all together.

Minimalism: Less is more

Fashion

It’s officially the first day of fall but this Houston heat hasn’t backed down even a smidge. It might even be mid to late October till we get a cool breeze around here during the daytime. My wardrobe sure as hell won’t be waiting around for that (trust me, we’d be waiting till January for a decent drop in temperature).

It’s a new season, and I’ve got a new fashion approach I’m willing to take on. It’s trending, it’s in, and it’s what all the broke college kids are talking about these days — minimalism. You mean like minimal body coverage? Ummm, no. It doesn’t mean minimal effort either. Minimalism is about living with fewer material possessions and making the most of what you have so you can focus on what’s really important in life. This can mean redecorating your home in the simplest way possible, reducing clutter, and donating things you really don’t need.
