Summer Blues & Hues

Ben and I were able to squeeze in a date night last weekend and we were definitely craving some tex mex.  There are so many good options close to us here in The Woodlands.  One of the things I will miss as we head out to the country when we move coming up here soon!

A little home update on our new build!  We have been meeting with our architect about what we want our home to look like and it’s starting to set in that our home will be a reality this time next year or a little before.  We will be closing on our little piece of Texas next week!  We are still in the early stages of designing our floorpan and hope to have final plans done in the next few months.  I will post some renderings here and there on my instagram, but I will say it’s going to be more of a cottagy home with my home office/studio inside.   I’ve had a floorpan I’ve been dreaming of for several months and I can’t wait to see it come to life.

I hope you guys are enjoying the videos.  I love videography and had to throw a few in there for some of my favorite products!

Dress HERE True to size (I loved it without the tie)

This is my first “try on” post.  I had a little time without the kids after church Sunday and decided to do a little shopping.  I wanted to share some of my favorite things out right now.  I love finding a good Target dress.  They aren’t too expensive and are so easy to throw on in this Houston heat.  All of these dresses are cool and comfy.  The denim one is my favorite.  I checked online for inventory on sizes and there are limited amounts in some, but at my store, most sizes were in stock so good to know for your next target run!

My Nordstrom pics I LOVE.  I ordered the trousers in navy and loved the tiered dress in the blue color. I liked the basic shirtdress too.

Have a fashionable Tuesday lovelies!

There is something about a white top jeans that is so effortless and easy.  I bought this top last year and wore it so many times, I’m so glad they brought it back again this year but in more colors!  The one I linked has more of a linen look and comes in the prettiest blue and I even saw a lilac color in Nordstrom Rack while we were in DC.  I hope you are having a wonderful start to your week!

I really love gingham and this skirt is such a great color.  It is getting hot here and it was hot this day we went out sightseeing in Georgetown. I paired it with an easy and cool white basic tank and grabbed my favorite bag right now, this Cuyana saddle bag.  (the good kind of saddle bag 😉  I have to say a little bit about Cuyana.  I hope one day to feature more of their products because I love a well made leather bag with not a lot of branding on it.  Cuyana’s motto is ‘Fewer, Better Things.’  They sell great quality staple clothing pieces (like this dress) and great timeless leather bags.  All of my diaper bags have been their slouch totes with a good insert for organization.  I like getting my  bags personalized and they have a personalization option on several of their bags.  This saddle bag comes in a smaller size too, but this one fits my Nikon D4 DSLR so I had my eye on it for a while.  My mom and my sister got it for me as a birthday gift!  My birthday is next week 😉

   I will be doing a “Shop Local” post every couple of weeks to feature local business around the North Houston area.  I am a big ‘shop local’ person and like to support local  shops and boutiques.  They are what drives our local communities and I love the special touch and warm welcomes most local business have.

Ruthie Grace is a boutique that my college friend, Tara, started several years back.  Tara is hilarious and kind hearted with an eye for fashion and style.  It has been awesome watching her business grow and grow into one of the major boutiques in the area.  She now has an online store in addition to her brick and mortar located in Montgomery, TX.  She has such a good variety of cute stuff for great prices and they are launching a bunch of new summer styles tomorrow!  Follow her instagram here

 Love you Tara~
