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?

Kid Style: Transitioning From Summer to Fall

These kiddos. Man. They just kill me! They’re at such a fun age (they’re 1 and 2) and I’m just loving each and every stage we’re experiencing with them. Well, minus those lovely tantrums of course. We recently moved cities (you can read more about that here) and have been exploring our new hood over the last few weeks. The weather has been it’s normal bipolar self here in Texas, so each week has been completely different. Rain for 2 weeks straight, 80 degrees one day, then 48 the next. Just lovely! Right? Today I wanted to share a bit of my kiddos style and talk about how I’m transitioning their summer outfits into fall outfits. For Harper, I love using summer dresses for fall and simply carrying around a sweater for her in case the nights get a little chilly. I also tend to use Hudson’s summer Ts for…

Recipe: Cherry Cobbler

My grandma Vessels was the most amazing cook. I still remember so many cozy childhood memories running up to grandma’s house already smelling fried chicken from the driveway. The table was always set and ready for us to eat some variety of a classic southern spread. And each time we visited, you better bet she had her cherry cobbler waiting for us to finish off the meal. Being the sweet tooth that I am, I typically nibbled on dinner to save the maximum amount of room for cobbler. I think my favorite part about this recipe, even at a young age, was that it wasn’t too tart like so many cherry cobblers and pies are. I even remember rejecting any other cherry desserts simply because no one could measure up to my grandma’s recipe. As a young girl I didn’t know why hers was so special, but as I got…

Client Work: Guest Room Design Board

It’s always so fun to get a client that isn’t afraid of color. A few months ago I had the pleasure of designing a guest room for a client that lives just up the road from me. She lives in an old house, has great style, and let me go crazy with color. Talk about DREAM client. She had only one request, and that was to use a piece of art that she actually created herself. I was all for it, and her art is actually what inspired my entire design. West Elm Console Table Gold Light Fixture Black and White Abstract Art Mosaic Multi-Colored Art Barn Art (Sea Foam Blue and Citrine) Mirror Side Table Pink Lumbar Pillow Citrine Pillows Black and White Pillow “X” Ottomans Shag Rug Lamps She had an existing headboard, which was a light oak color that needed to be updated just a bit. I…
