Lust List: August 2017

August always feels like a month of transition to me. On the calendar, it signals that summer is coming to a close. However, anyone who lives in the South knows that the heat will stick around well through October. Even still, the September issues of various fashion magazines and upcoming travel to cooler locales have me thinking about updating my fall wardrobe. This month, you’ll see that I’m lusting over a mix of things– structured fall separates that travel well and are polished enough for business meetings and speaking engagements, as well as a few more summery items in feminine silhouettes to deal with the reality of Houston’s almost nonexistent fall season. We are planning a long weekend in Punta Mita, Mexico over Labor Day, so the pretty summer dresses I had packed for Paris and didn’t wear due to the cool, rainy weather will come in handy. Have any of you been to Punta Mita by chance? It’s where the crazy Real Housewives of New York went on their vacation this season. If so, I’d love any recommendations you might have. We rented a private villa and really just want to relax by the pool and on the beach, but can always use good restaurant recommendations.


Lust List: July 2017

I am currently in Southampton, New York where we have been photographing one of our client’s houses for my upcoming book. While it is summer, the weather has been mostly cool and rainy while we have been here with temperatures in the low sixties. For a group from Texas, it feels like winter! Now, after getting a taste of some cooler temperatures, I have my eye on some fabulous finds for fall. However, I am a realist and know that it will be a while before I get to wear fall clothes at home, so I have also pulled some great summer pieces that I am currently loving. From bohemian dresses to crisp blazers, the gang’s all here! It’s a good thing I get to travel quite a bit for work or certain parts of my closet may never see the light of day. What is currently on your lust list?

Lust List: June 2017

With our trip to Paris just ten days away, I have been doing quite a bit of shopping online. I know we will likely be out, walking most of the day, so flat sandals, cool linen dresses, and breezy tops are a must, while chic pieces are a must for dinners out. Overall, the idea is to pack things that are versatile and will work in a variety of ways as well as those that are comfortable for long days spent exploring the meandering streets of Paris. And of course, it goes without saying, the goal is to select things that feel effortless and chic. What are you currently craving?

Lust List: April 2017

I just got back from High Point and I am currently feeling inspired by the use of color. There were lots of pretty shades of blue, green, and pink all over market. I’ll share some of my favorite finds from market later this week. In the meantime, I am thrilled to have come home to gorgeous weather after the cold and stormy weather in North Carolina. As such, I am thinking about pretty, feminine silhouettes for dresses and blouses, chic sandals, and colorful accessories to add a little punch. I am bookmarking a ton of these items for upcoming speaking engagements, trips, and shoots! What are you lusting after this month?

I know that several parts of the country have been dealing with winter weather this week, but spring is so close that I can just taste it! In fact, the first day of spring is on Monday, March 20th, which will also be Tate’s 8th birthday. As always, I am currently loving updated classics in a palette of black, white, camel, and navy. This month’s list is filled with style staples and pieces with feminine details as well as some great jewelry to dress up any look along with pieces to get you through the transition period if you live in a part of the country with real seasons. That being said, it was 80 degrees in Houston last week and this week it’s been significantly cooler, so it always helps to have great layering pieces.
