A Fashion Fiend // Short Business

What a week!! Back to business after a whirlwind of events. Now, the industry has pulled out their fall clothes, but Houston has not gotten the memo. It’s still pretty warm and rainy of all things! A total bummer. I mixed in another pair of bermuda shorts to stay nice and cool while running from one place to the next. Off I go!  Have a great weekend.

A Fashion Fiend Teen // One Direction

Hello lovers and fellow directioners! Last weekend of the summer and I ended with the One Direction Concert!!! 1D has been my favorite band since I saw them on X Factor 4 years ago. These boys speak to me and I LOVE Harry Styles!! This is the second time seeing them in concert and my first time on the floor, VIP seats!! It was amazing! They are so hot and sounded so good! Can wait until the next concert!! Next post will be from the beginning of my freshman year in high school, AHH! Wish me luck and good luck to all of you heading back to school! Let’s start this year off AWESOME!

Teen Style Tuesday – Pineapple Express

Welcome to summer, my friends!! I am so happy to be back on track. Lately between swim meets and piano, I’ve had no time to dress cute! I was thrilled to receive this adorable top the other day, it’s pink and has gold pineapples on it! My mom suggested this post name after a movie I’ve never seen but, apparently it has James Franco in it which is ok by me. He has the most adorable smile.

I am so happy that summer is here! I have been planning my summer fun activities and can’t wait to get them started. I have been living in cutoffs like it’s my hot weather uniform. Freaking go with everything! Hope you all have a stress free week.

From Day to Night

I’ve been living in these boots for the last two weekends and I have to share how much I love them. Boots are definitely a favorite of mine and I was lucky enough to get to style two looks for shoe company, DUO. I have really slim calves and I am constantly missing out on knee high boots because the “average” calf size is too big for me. This company shows you how to measure your feet and calves for precise fit and comfort, so each pair is custom fit for you. This makes for a more polished look whether you’re wearing them in the office or for a night out on the town. The style of these boots is so versatile and the comfort will have you wearing them from day and night.

Casual Friday- #HoustonRodeo

Howdy! I attended my first Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo over spring break after living in H-town for almost 3 years!! I always travel to the West Coast during the spring but this year I stayed home and I am so happy I did! Growing up in Arizona, I rode horses and have even participated in my fair share of rodeos! I am classically trained English but I have always loved the rough style of western riding. Barn friends taught me how to barrel race and calf wrangle. Every spring I would ride in the Gilbert Days Parade and Rodeo. I am so happy I was able to go. Robin Thicke‘s concert was after and a perfect way to end the night! I will definitely be back next year!

Teen Style Tuesday- Spring breakers!

Hello my friends!

I am so ready for spring break to hit! It starts off with my birthday so I am super stoked!!! I’m not traveling far this year but I’m planning a week of fun in the sun (Houston weather permitting). My girls and I are heading to the beach in Galveston one day and Schlitterbahn water park too! I’m also going to try and take a trip to the Sea World in San Antonio. I want to pack as much in as I can and spend as much time in the sunlight as possible! I love spring so much, all the blooming flowers, sunny days, and no school. Is it summer yet?…

Dress: DelMoniCole Clothing, Shoes: Target, Bracelet: H&M, Cocktail Ring: Aldo

With summer coming to a close, the rib drift trend has been a favorite of mine and a staple in my wardrobe over these hot months. This beautiful custom dress was made by a talented Houston designer, LaTarsha of DelMoniCole Clothing and is definitely an up-and-comer to look out for! Not only do I love the cut of this dress, I absolutely adore the print!

Prabal Gurung for Target

Sunday, February 10th, Prabal Gurung released their much anticipated line in Target stores nationwide. The launch was closely watched as Target’s last collaboration back in December, with luxury brand Neiman Marcus, was a total failure resulting in many sad and disappointed Target and Neiman Marcus shoppers.

The line was way too expensive for avid Target shoppers and seemingly too dressy. It was quickly ushered to the clearance racks and then removed from stores.

Nevertheless, Target learned their lesson, and I’m happy to say I’m very pleased with the job they did with Prabal Gurung. Not only are the pieces on par with the clothing prices at Target, but the line’s romantic feel with floral patterns, bright pastel colors, and flowy dresses are perfect for Valentine’s Day and the Spring.

I was sad to see that so many pieces at my local Target were already taken or not in my size, but I managed to pick up the long sleeve tee. It’s still chilly and rainy here in Houston, so the long sleeves are prefect. The fit is awesome and the material is so soft. A lot of the pieces can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

All-in-all, Prabal Gurung collection at Target is a hit!
