San Diego Day 2

_MG_9181.jpg

Our second evening in San Diego, my husband and I went to dinner with friends, and I wore my black and white printed DVF wrap dress. Diane von Furstenberg is know for making wrap dresses that hug women in all of the right places, and I really love the long version. I wore taupe heels and my taupe Chloe side satchel (mainly because those were the only accessories I packed for the trip, but luckily they go with everything!). What do you think of the dress? Check out more gorgeous DVF wrap dresses here and here.

San Diego Day 1

_MG_9220.jpg

My husband I had a great time in San Diego with friends. The weather was unseasonably hot, but the city is so beautiful it almost didn’t matter. We stayed near the gaslamp district, which is full shops and amazing restaurants. We ate at the Seersucker and Nobu, which were great! If you like fresh seafood , you should definitely travel to SD one day. San Diego is a really casual city, so I wore a casual chic look to dinner one night. I wore a striped, bowed blouse (also seen here) and skinny jeans. I also wore my favorite new Chloe side satchel, which is great for traveling.

Fall Look: Mustard, Dots, and Pearls

_MG_8794.jpg

Thank goodness Fall is finally here! The weather has been beautiful in Houston the last few days, and it gave me a chance to put together my first official Fall outfit. I love that mustard yellow is on trend right now, and it looks great paired with maroon, cobalt blue, and of course browns. I also love pairing it with black and white polka dots. The contrast is so much fun, but classic at the same time. I also added a pop of red with my YSL Muse bag and color-blocked heels. I also wore my Karen Walker tortoise shell sunglasses which are perfect for the fall! What do you think?

Fall Trend Alert: Booties

I am so anxious for the weather to get cooler here, mainly because I want to wear some Fall fashions. One trend that I am really excited about is the return of ankle boots, or “booties.” They come in so many styles: High-heeled, flat, wedge, lace-up, Western, studded, you name it! I have been searching for the perfect black bootie for a while now, and while I was scouring the web, I decided to put together a list of my favorite booties. Which ones do you think I bought? Which one is your favorite?

I bought the Seychelles lace-up booties, and I can’t wait to post a look with them.

Also, tomorrow is Fashion’s Night Out, and if you live in Houston, there are tons of events going on. I will be at the Tootsies event and the Galleria events. Hope to see you there!
