A Fashion Fiend // High of 75

These lyrics sum up my last two days. It’s been just beautiful, clear skies, high of 79. I’m starting to embrace the fall and added a scarf to one of my favorite eyelet dresses. Belting my scarf gave me a little shape to my non existent hips. Good trick to have in the bag. Have a great weekend 😉

“And now I’m sunny with a high of 75
Since you took my heavy heart and made it light
And it’s funny how you find, you enjoy your life
When you’re happy to be alive”

Out of Office

Hi! I took a brief sabbatical from life pretty much. I thought I needed to recharge but I really needed a complete reset. I’m glad I did. Back to the grind on Wednesday, til then I’ll stay poolside. Hope everything is going well in each of your lives!

The long and short

Welcome back to the work week everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! I’m heading downtown this morning for some meetings and then hopefully catch a power lunch with an old friend. I try and schedule my appointments and meetings for the first few days of each week. I’m lucky to have a pretty good amount of control over my schedule so I tend to do what works best for me. Although, because of so many events in the evenings and on weekends, I do find myself working well over a typical 40 hour work week, it gets exhausting! This jewel toned outfit was inspired by the fickle weather. I’m still not used to the humidity here so after I popped on this long sleeved blouse, there was no way I could get on long pants too! I added my favorite pair of shorts and topped it with my tweed jacket. Business on the top. Have a wonderful week!

Spring events are in filling up my evenings lately like no other. I’ve been so excited about all of the happenings that I had two in one night! It was awesome though, so much fashion and style. My kind of night! The first event was at David Peck’s boutique: Heroes and Handbags event featured the newest clutches and handbags by Houston artist Hanh Tran. Twenty percent of the proceeds from the evening’s sales benefitted Heroes for Children.

My second event of the evening was held at Up restaurant in Highland Village. Presented by Houston Magazine, Men of Style was the theme of the night. We mingled and noshed on tasty apps with local fashionistas and dapper gents. It was the place to be for Houston’s Fashion Elite.

Spring Break was wonderful as usual in Arizona!!! The weather was warm, the sun was shining, and the orange blossoms were in full bloom. One of Jadapa’s friends is a local photographer and offered an impromptu shoot one day while I was in town. We journeyed over to The Groves in Mesa, where acres of orange trees reminded us of our frequent trips to the area while growing up. The weather was perfect and the trees provided the perfect backdrop for the pictures. Thank you to Monica Johnson Photography!
