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.

We’re three weeks into the spring season, yet somehow the weather just keeps getting colder, even in Texas. But that doesn’t mean you can’t dress cute while keeping warm. If you love florals, then you’re in luck. They are huge for this spring season! I like florals, but just subtle hints of floral embroidery here and there, or even floral lace patterns. After all, I am all about the minimalist approach.
Here’s a look you can achieve with a simple black/white collared top with floral design, and palazzos or high-waisted wide-leg pants with richer, warm springtime colors. I left the last few buttons of the top open for extra flare, and wore a black basic tee under it, which I tucked in.
If it’s cold enough where you live, you can even pair it with a floor length duster jacket, or a black trench coat.

During spring break a few weeks ago, my family decided to go on a mid-week getaway at a secluded resort in Austin, Texas. Barton Creek Resorts was beautiful, surrounded by flourishing plants. Greenery pervaded the acreage as we had a front-view of the golf course from our window. This technology-free vacation was exactly what I needed to reconnect with my family and take my mind off of worldly stress. I left that back at home. There was a cute nature trail and mini-golf course right by the outdoor pool on the cliff overlooking the large bodies of water and surrounding mansions. The sight was breathtaking. I finally had my chance to eat out for almost every meal, trying new varieties like Vietnamese Pho and Japanese California rolls.
I spent days filming and editing this so I hope you all enjoy it. Let me know what you think! Please give it a thumbs up, share, and subscribe.
