Fashion X HOUSTON 

Thank you Koh Gen Do for inviting me out to join behind-the-scenes for Fashion X HOUSTON. I was busy with work and life so I was unable to see the 1st and 2nd night of fashion but the final night of Fashion X HOUSTON did not disappoint. It was filled with talented designers that poured their hearts and souls into every single garment that came down the runway. I had to skip out right at the intermission so not all of the designers that presented are shown in this post. 

What I enjoyed the most is being amongst so many smiling faces both familiar and new. Everyone looked beautiful and the positive energy matched the prints, stunning colors, and unique designs that hit the runway. Enjoy!

Chambray Wrap | OOTD

Here is another OOTD from my trip to New York during NYFW. On this day, all I could think about was being comfortable yet pulled together. I decided on some tried and true classic styles and colors for a day of running around. This wrap top from A Leap of Style is a beautiful chambray color in a flatting style. The gathered sleeve definitely adds some interest while the wrap design is super flattering to my figure. Add in another flattering, classically cut pair of cigarette pants from Steve Guthrie’s collection and it’s a home run.

As I thought about choosing a shoe for this look I carefully considered how much walking I’d do and that helped me decide quickly. I mean, what’s true comfort with out a comfortable shoe? When my feet are happy, I’m happy so I opted for my trusty black converse.

I kept my accessories minimal with two sets of thin bracelets on each wrist and my stitch earrings from Myth & Symbol. My absolute favorite thing about this OOTD is that almost everything came from Houston. It brings me no greater joy than to support talented designers and businesses from my great city. Enjoy!

Never Basic Tees | OOTD

I am beyond happy to bring you an OOTD sponsored by one of my absolute favorite places to shop. I have partnered with Old Navy to help you style tees  in a way that will make you feel like casual royalty.

Sometimes t-shirts can get a bad reputation because they seem so basic in nature. I have news for you. A great fitting, well made t-shirt in the right color and style is never basic! This OOTD shows you how bold and versatile a t-shirt can be with the right style tips.

For starters, take a #NeverBasic  Old Navy Tee that you love and build your look around it. To spice up a graphic tee like I did, go for something a little bit unexpected. I gave my relaxed fit Shine Bright tee a dressier look by layering it on top of a button down shirt in a contrasting  green color. The collar on my button down takes my tee to the next level, yet lets my tee do all of the talking. I paired my black denim jeans with this look because it provides even more contrast from what I have going on above the waist but it also ties into the color of the text on my tee. Lastly, in cooler weather one last layer does the trick. I’ve topped of the entire look with my medium length trench coat. One of the main reasons this look works so well is because of all the neutral tones. Keep that in mind as you pull together your look.

This is just ONE awesome way to style the heck out of a tee. Leave me a comment about how you can take your tee to level #NeverBasic , Enjoy!

Chain Mail Knit | OOTD

When the calendar says September, it’s fall to me! If only Houston agreed and cooled down by at least 10 degrees. Lol I can’t let these warm temperatures stop my preparation for true fall weather.

This OOTD is a casual knit sweater that reminds me of medival chain mail because of its weight. It’s from Banana Republic and it feels so good on. My trusty black denim jeans from Old Navy and black converse always do the trick to help bring together a casual look. Leave me a comment about how you’re preparing your closet for fall. Enjoy!

Utility Midi Dress | OOTD

It was love at first sight for this utility midi dress and I! You know I love classics! This sleeveless dress is a beautiful ode to classic military style and will easily become a staple piece. It can be a “stand alone” dress or layered with leggings, scarves, jackets, etc. The belted waist and lean design make it flattering on almost any figure and the front slit helps give you height.  Leave me a comment about you favorite military inspired look, enjoy!
