The weather in Houston has been absolutely beautiful this week– sunny and warm. Everything has started to bloom early. It seems our plants are confused and think spring is really here. Our wisteria and jasmine are so lush and verdant right now and our azaleas are already beginning to bloom. Like my plants, I am also ready for spring thanks to the lovely, temperate temperatures and sunny days we have been experiencing. I mentioned last month that I have been wanting to purge my closet and I still have the urge to do so. Most of my clothes and shoes are pretty classic, but there are plenty of things in there that I haven’t worn in ages and it seems like at any given time, I only wear about 25% of what I own. Does this happen to you, too? This month, I have my eye on plenty of things that I’d like to see make their way into my closet!
This week, I’ve been going through one of those dreaded slumps during which I hate just about everything in my closet. With the exception of some favorites, I kind of just want to start over. I say this mostly in jest, but I am sure you can relate. I know we all go through this a few times a year! With that said, I have some updated classics on my lust list this month– pretty blouses with feminine details, chic denim silhouettes, stylish sweaters and jackets, and great shoes and accessories. What are you currently lusting after!
After being in San Francisco, New York, and Seattle over the course of the past few weeks, I have finally gotten a taste of fall and am ready for some chic, new pieces to add to my fall wardrobe. This month, I am craving blouses with pretty silhouettes, structured bags, chic loafers and flats, and great jackets that work year-round. With so many items on my wish list this month, it’s probably a good thing that my birthday is a few weeks away!
Today is officially the last day of summer, which means it is time to get our closets ready for fall! Sadly, it still feels like summer in Houston with temperatures in the 90s. I am currently in New York where it is warm and muggy, but when I was in San Francisco last week, it felt as if I was getting a taste of fall. I even wore sweaters two days in a row, which made me unbelievably happy! So, while it may be a while before I wear a sweater again, I am all about great layering pieces and adding touches of fall to my outfits through great shoes, bags, and accessories until the air actually turns crisp.
I am so ready for cooler weather! If you’ve ever experienced the sweltering summer temperatures in the South, then I am sure you would agree. I’m currently feeling very inspired by the 1970s prep meets modern glamour vibe that has been spurred on by Gucci’s most recent collections and campaigns. You can never go wrong with a pretty blouse, great-fitting jeans, chic shoes, and a beautiful bag!
