Hello Summer 2016!!!
This summer we’re taking over Houston!!! We will be all over town showcasing what Houston has to offer in our versions of the “off the runway” trends, summer styles, or whatever makes us feel HOT!! You see, as moms we know how tough choosing the right outfit may be or even on some days having the energy to choose one. Therefore just like every season we will remind you to wear what suits you. Even when the energy is low, the kids are winning, work is crazy or the hubby is moving too slow….we recommend fashion therapy. Make time for YOU, get up, put some fabulous make up on, pick a feel good outfit and take the day head on! There are many effortless, comfy, chic looks you can make your own. Choose from the trends or the classic summer staples and make it fit your world.
Here are the looks we’re loving and using ourselves…
For me a maxi dress is so dramatic and effortless that it’s a staple in my closet! I have them for all seasons but my faves are the lightweight summer ones. This off the shoulder piece is from H&M and the clutch is from Louis Vuitton. I braided my hair and added deep colors for makeup to finish off my look for a fun GNO. 💋
Denim pieces are timeless and currently one of the hottest trends. This dress is H&M and is eight years old. Its versatile, you can glam it up or throw some cute flats on and make it casual. Shoes are from Zara, clutch is from Society, white tuxedo blazer from H&M and hair/make up by me .
White is a staple always for summer. The color gives you a blank slate to work with so you can change the look anytime you accessorize with a different color. Dress and sandals are from Burlington and purse is Louis Vuitton. I added belt and necklace from Charming Charlie to match my purse and sandals and was ready for brunch with girlfriends in this HOT Houston weather.
One of my current obsessions are wide leg pants. Wide legs or culottes are easy to wear. They are my go to piece when I want to look “put together” without trying. Another hot trend this summer that I am so feeling is the off the shoulder tops, hello Marilyn!!! I happen to love my décolletage area so this cut gives me life. Pants and top H&M, clutch (my Leonardo) Kate Spade, shoes by Zara, glasses by Louis Vuitton.
Dress for brunch always. <3 Dress by Modcloth, shoes and clutch by Christian Louboutin. This look was inspired by my beloved Carrie Bradshaw in the 1st Sex and the City movie during the auction scene. 🙂
Tousled hair and beach waves are the common thing in summer, so don’t be afraid to let your hair fly wild and free! For the office or that business meeting, beat the heat with lightweight and thin fabrics. The blouse and skirt are both from H&M and are thin and breezy to keep cool under a blazer. At night remove the blazer for a dinner out and you’re ready! Blinged out pumps are from Miu Miu.
If you’re more into the comfy jeans and tee style, choose a fun printed/graffiti tee and dress it up with a bold statement piece. We love how Karen kept it cool and comfy in this “free spirit” look and jazzed it up with a fun chunky necklace. Even her phone case screamed summer time fun!
We hope these looks inspire you to rock those hot summer styles. For more of our #ootd and more about what were up to this season, follow us on our social media pages. Stay cool this summer y’all!!
