A Summer Dress in December

GET THE LOOK: Yellow Dress (similar, similar, similar)  |  Black Leather Jacket  |  Mustard Yellow Faux Fur Bag  |  Wide-Brimmed Panama Hat  |  Mustard Yellow Tassel Earrings  |  Suede Booties Texas weather — I feel like that’s all I need to say sometimes! Some days it’s 70 degrees and sunny, some days it’s 20 and sleeting. You just never know. That’s why I love keeping some of my summer wear readily available, even when it’s winter. Summer maxi dresses are EVERYTHING to me, so getting to wear them all year around is huge. Simply pair it with your favorite bomber jacket, and your set. I found that adorable clutch at Target, and my panama hat is Target as well. What do you guys think? Am I the only one who keeps their summer gear near, even when it’s chilly out?

My Style Philosophy

"Low, Low, High"

Low. Low. High. — What does that mean? Let me explain.

I love putting looks together, whether it’s interior design, my own outfits, or my kid's clothes, that is two-thirds “affordable” and one-third "a splurge.” Life is all about balance, and I love finding good deals and pairing them with high-end, specialty pieces.
Here on AmyHorany.com, you will find that I follow this philosophy to the fullest. My go-to stores are Target, Marshall's, HomeGoods and Amazon, but I also love splurging from time to time as well. My goal for this platform is for my eye-for-design to help you find your own balance in life & style.

House Update: Framing Our New Build

How in the world am I already writing about the FRAMING of our new build? I feel like it was just yesterday that we finished remodeling our reno back in Fort Worth. But nope! We’ve sold our Fort Worth home, moved to a new city, laid the foundation of our new house, and now we’re actually FRAMING the home as we speak. How does time go by so fast?? Also… I just realized my babies aren’t babies any more. Gah! Look at them! They’re so big!! In less than two weeks, we’ve seen our house go from a lot filled with dirt, to a two-story framed house. So far we’ve been really happy with our team at David Weekley. They’ve been very transparent about the building process from day one, which is I think why we’ve had such a great experience.  I spent MONTHS customizing this home before we even…

Back Porch Makeover

Living in Texas, you just never know what the weather will look like from day to day. Over the summer, the temperatures rise above 100 degrees, while in the winter we’re known to get snow and ice one week, and 80 degrees the next. With warm and sunny days throughout the year, a beautiful pool view, and a movie projector for nightly TV watching, we knew we would use our back patio year-round. We started with painting our siding a matte black to make the space feel more modern. Next, we added a cedar ceiling that my Dad, Father-n-law and husband actually did themselves. Copper accents  were the original inspiration for the space, so I picked up a few copper side tables, lanterns and sconces to finish off the look. But if you ask me, the first two things you notice when you walk out on our back patio are our new Haiku…

From the Mind of my Baby Girl

To all the stressed out and struggling moms out there, who sometimes feel like they just need a break, here’s an open letter I wrote from another (much smaller) point of view. Dear Mommy, As I lay asleep on your chest ever so dearly, I want you to know how much I love you and how I don’t mean to stress you out. You see, I’m just a little baby and I’m still trying to figure out this big new place. I’ve only been on the outside for just a few months now, and I’m still discovering new and scary things each day. You see Mommy, when I decided to sleep all day today, it was because I didn’t really know any better. When I was in your belly, you rocked me to sleep each day as you walked around your office at work and ran errands in the evenings.…

Amazon Lately: Tassel Earrings

For those of you who don’t know, Amazon is AMAZING. It’s always full of surprises, and sadly, I’ve developed a bit of an addiction to it. I mean — Who doesn’t love getting a box of goodies delivered to their house on a monthly… weekly… er… daily basis? If I can order it on Amazon, I will. Even my jewelry. Though shopping at overpriced boutiques might be a fun afternoon out with the girls, I have a real hard time paying $80 for a pair of earrings that I know I can find online for $15. Heck. Maybe even $10. Especially if they’re trendy like tassel earrings. I have a feeling this look won’t be in style forever, so I really don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for the designer version. I’d much rather get a few pairs in different colors and pay $15 or less for…
