Today I’m sharing this evening look that I wore to last week’s Galentine’s event held at Tootsies with a handful of blogger babes.  The moment I saw this dress at Lily Rain it was love at first sight.  A LBD with tassels?  Sign me up!  Tassel everything is so on trend and I couldn’t pass up this adorable piece.  I plan on wearing it again this weekend to celebrate my sister-in-law’s 40th in San Antonio at Hotel Emma.  I paired this look with my favorite nude Louboutin’s and my new favorite necklace, also a Lily Rain find. I completed the look with my go-to + classic Prada clutch.

 

You can find the cutest assortment of items at Lily Rain including everything from baby gifts, to designer shades, to the perfect outfit for a dressy night out to a causal resort getaway.  Another plus, Lily Rain offers free shipping on orders over $50. Find your neighborhood Lily Rain here!

Happy Friday, friends!

We got back from San Diego on Wednesday and I must say– baby girl did great on her first trip! The plane ride up there was a breeze!!  We had a mild hiccup on the way back, only because the changing table slammed shut after using, making the loudest noise that any changing table in the world could make (of course!).  This frightened little bit, which led to screaming and me trying to soothe her in a tiny airplane bathroom.  It was a rough 5 minutes that felt like hours!!  I’m not quite scarred, but let’s just say my heart goes out to anyone traveling with a tiny babe.

 

On another note, I’m sharing one of my favorite travel dresses today!  This universal off-the-shoulder style can really dress up a look, while making it feminine and flirty.  You can wear this black mini pretty much to anything!  I played it up by layering a long VSA necklace, and my go-to booties.  I’ve gotten so much use out of these babies!!  I wore this look on our first night out in San Diego.  Although it rained half the time, I’m so glad we went!!  This mama needed to get out of Houston for a bit!

 

Hope everyone is enjoying these cooler temps and has a great weekend!!

Happy November guys! I’ve been a little MIA, but for good reason! My baby girl turned 2 months today, and she still doesn’t have a sleeping schedule down. Little peanut likes to party at night! I’ve never been more grateful for concealer and yoga pants…

 

Today I’m sharing my FAVORITE fur vest (linking an animal-friendly option, too). When Fall/Winter is here, this fur vest is one of my favorite pieces to layer with. The is one of my top pieces that I get at least two compliments each time I wear it– and I wear it a lot! Another trend that I’ve been obsessing over lately are chokers! Flashback to the 90s and high school days, right?! You’ll find a few of my favorite chokers in the links below. I love pairing these with a classic scoop, round or crew neckline.

 

Few of my favorite chokers:

LARIAT CHOKER NECKLACE

STRETCH VELVET CHOKER

Ronica’s Baby Book of First Years


This sweet memory book is a must-have for a parent-to-be.  Keeping track of your little one’s special moments is something that you’ll cherish forever.  There’s so many options out there, but I narrowed it down to this little keepsake and cannot wait to document our little one’s special moments.  What sealed the deal on Ronica’s Our Little One’s First Years was the fact that the photo format size is practical (most being 4 x 6 and 5 x 7), while a lot of other memory books have a polaroid or a square-sized template for your photos.  I also love that this particular book lets you document special memories up to 5 years old!  From baby’s first holidays to baby’s first day of school– this memory book covers it all.  Another fun addition are the monthly stickers in the back– everyone is partaking in this precious trend right now!  There’s also a My Keepsakes envelope placed on the very last page for baby’s hospital bracelets, hair, first tooth– you name it!  I think it’s safe to say that this little memory book has it all.  😉

Hi, friends!

 

I’m going to be completely honest with you, with everything going on getting ready for this baby, my blogging life has taken a step back!  And I feel there’s still so much left to do– does that ever go away?!

 

Today I’m sharing a light and causal summer look I’ve currently been living in from Nordstrom.  Since this piece is currently sold-out, I’m linking similar options below.  I’ve been living in airy, vacay-style dresses all summer long… and let’s face it, this crazy Texas heat isn’t cutting me any slack.  I hope you guys are enjoying the summer and staying cool!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!!

 

If you’re out celebrating in the sun I’m a little jealous– it’s currently storming + flooding in the Houston area.  🙁  So while I’d much rather be sitting by a pool tanning my belly, I’m stuck indoors working on blog stuff.  At least I’m being more productive, right?!

 

As much as it’s storming outside right now, this crummy weather isn’t going to put a damper in my style!  How cute is this embroidered tunic dress by Isabel Marant?  Personally, I think Isabel Marant can do no wrong… Her pieces are a splurge, which makes me even happier to announce that this dress is currently marked down 40% off.  Yes.  You’re welcome.  So grab one before they sell out!!

 

Hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday weekend!

Happy Friday, friends!

 

I’m so excited for Summer to be approaching this year– sweaters and leggings do not sound fun with a growing belly!  Today I’m sharing my go-to little white dress with you.  A girl can never have too many white dresses, right?

 

I’m loving the deep cut on this Wayf dress because it really brings it to the next level by dressing it up.  The soft details on the fabric makes it feminine and flirty, too.  I added these Jeffrey Campbell lace-ups that I’m currently loving, especially in this soft grey color.

 

Hope everyone has a fab weekend!  x

If there’s one thing I love, it’s a great pair of skinny jeans.  Despite all buzz about boyfriends and flares– skinnies are still an easy go-to.  One thing I love about skinny jeans is how universal they can be.  You can easily dress them up for a night out on the town with stilettos and silk top, or opt for a more causal look with gladiator flats and a linen button down- perfect for brunch with the girls.  You can find a few of my favorite skinny tips below.

 

harmony & havoc

 

  1. A little stretch adds a lot of comfort.
  2. Be a little daring and try the ankle crop trend- it’s universally flattering for everyone.
  3. Go for an authentic and timeless wash to get the most wear out of your skinnies.

With Spring here and Summer already on my mind, it’s no surprise that I’ve been living in dresses that have a lighter, beachy feel to them.

 

One designer that does just that is Isabel Marant, and I’m loving her more casual Etoile line.  With my belly on-growing, I find I’ve been investing in pieces that I’ll be able to wear throughout these next 4 months.  This feminine, embroidered dress is a piece that I’ll be able to wear during and after pregnancy.  I’m also here to admit that I’ve had a tassel necklace problem for a couple of years now- and how cute is this steal from Anthropologie?  I completed my look with my go-to Celine Tote and Jeffrey Campbell peep toe booties.  Now if only the sun would come back out in Texas!

 

Hope you all had a fab weekend and as always, thanks for stopping by!
