“Flutter-Bys”

Blog-9261

Today, we took the boys to the Houston Museum of Natural Science.  Usually, when we go to the museum we hit the dinosaur exhibit.  (Like, Every. Single. Time.)  We have a membership (which is totally worth it, by the way!) so we go quite a bit.  When we go, our boys beg for dinosaurs.  Today, however, we convinced them to check out the butterfly exhibit.  The Cockrell Butterfly Center is amazing!  The plants are stunning, the butterflies are beautiful and although it is quite warm and humid in there, it’s totally worth it.   (more…)

Our Rodeo Adventure

Blog-5544

Yesterday, we finally fulfilled our promise to our boys to take them to the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo.  Bean has been dying to go since Go Texan Day and since a “real cowboy” visited his preschool. Both of the boys looked absolutely precious in their jeans and boots and Bean looked extra cute in his hat.

First, we stopped by the Mutton Bustin’ tent.  I seriously love this “sport.”  It’s so cute.  Little kids (around five years old) come out riding a sheep and try and hold on for eight seconds, like the bull riders do.  It is absolutely adorable.  One kid we saw absolutely would not let go.  That sweet boy held on to the side of that sheep as it ran for so long – it was really impressive.  What a little rock star!   (more…)

Make a Statement!

Longhorn2_blog

We are in the middle of rodeo season here in Houston and it has been so fun to see the fashion that goes with this fun time of year.  Today’s post is the third in our series of rodeo fashion posts.  There are so many ways to make your outfit cowgirl chic with just a few pieces of jewelry added to your outfit. You can add a pair of statement earrings, or embrace the layering trend with some dainty necklaces that work well together.  Or, you can go with a statement necklace, which is what we’re talking about today.

It’s (Almost) Rodeo Time!

Longhorn_Blog

Well, it’s almost here.  Rodeo is just about everyone’s favorite time in Houston.  For nearly a month each year, Houston takes on the persona that the rest of the country assumes about Texas most of the time.  Having grown up here, I assure you that I’ve been asked more than once when traveling whether or not I own an oil derrick or rode a horse to school.  Thank you, Dallas.  (The TV show, not the city.) Once, while traveling in Indonesia, someone even asked me if I knew J.R. Ewing.  (I didn’t.)  But, once a year, the fourth largest city in the U.S. goes back to its Texas roots – and its a LOT of fun! (more…)

Behind the Scenes at Great Day Houston

Blog-
If you don’t know my friend Natalie Weakly, you should.  She’s an image and brand consultant and she loves making people look good.  Natalie is often a featured guest on Great Day Houston, giving Houstonians tips on all kinds of fashion solutions.  (You may remember her recent segment on scarf styling I featured on the blog.)  Natalie is also pregnant (and due just 10 days before me – how fun is that?!) so it makes sense that they asked her to do a segment on maternity fashion.  And when she needed “models”  I was thrilled to do it.  It wasn’t my first debut on a television news segment, but it was just as fun as the first time!

Langford Market Trunk Show Photos

20140202-120507.jpg

We had so much fun at Langford Market’s West Ave flagship location today!  They girls who work in there are absolutely adorable and are so, so sweet and helpful. You should definitely stop in and check the place out.  The decor and ambiance in the store offer a lovely aesthetic in which to shop and the clothes are really well-priced and offer on-trend colors and styles.  Their jewelry isn’t at all my style, but their clothes are really cute!  And maybe that’s why they asked me to come in and do a trunk show – to offer a slightly more dainty option.  The customers were all very kind and excited to try on a more dainty look and find some things to layer with items they already had.  A win-win!

Langford Market – West Ave

Blog-3913

Houston’s hip store, Langford Market opened a new location in the posh West Ave shopping center in River Oaks on Black Friday 2013.  The store is absolutely gorgeous in a chic, simplistic way.  It’s the perfect spot to shop on a lazy Saturday or Sunday – maybe just before or after weekend brunch at one of the hip new spots in West Ave – Del Frisco’s Grill or St. Genevieve (which both feature super cute ambiance and yummy menu items!)  I think Langford Market is a little like a more reasonably priced Anthropologie – and who doesn’t love a little Anthro?!  Langford Market has great deals on trendy tops and jewelry and they are currently having a sale – 40% off the entire store.  You can’t beat that!
