Recently, Adam and I had the opportunity to work with Layla-Yasmine Hillial from Le Zu Photography and pose for holiday photos. The shoot was at The Holiday Acres Christmas Tree Farm in Manvel, TX. I didn’t know Christmas trees even grew in Houston! Layla had the most adorable set-up complete with a cozy blanket and hot chocolate. The photos turned out so beautifully, you couldn’t even tell it was actually 76 degrees outside- in November. I don’t know if I will ever get used to that.
I had such a hard time deciding which photos to display because I love them all. Here are some of my faves from the shoot.
My second Stitch Fix has arrived, and my stylist Nicole nailed it! Again, I specifically asked for clothes to wear to work, especially dress pants. I appreciated that in this Fix, my stylist sent me a complete outfit to wear to work. Wait until you see the blazer in my box!
Earlier this year, I was at the Houston Livestock and Rodeo waiting for a concert to start when I saw a girl a few rows in front of me wearing a plaid flannel shirt with sequins. I’m similar to a moth- I am attracted to anything shiny. I decided I had to have a sparkly shirt like hers, so when I got home I started Googling and was dismayed when I couldn’t find one for under $50.
So I decided to make my own, and now you can make your very own too!
These are a few of my favorite things…right now. I love reading about what my blogger friends love, so here’s a random list of my favorite things I am currently obsessing over.
Months ago, I sat down and filled out a Stitch Fix style profile. Then I walked away. My coworkers got their fixes and raved about the pieces they received, so I went back to the site and filled out the billing information, but I just couldn’t pull the trigger. I love shopping. I also love subscription based shopping because I LOVE surprises. Seriously, any kind of grab bag type deal, I’m all in. Even though I know stores throw all the crap they can’t sell into a bag, mark it down and call it a grab bag, I cannot resist. But I digress.
I’ve had a Birchbox subscription since the time when you had to know someone who had it and get a referral code to join. Then you had to wait a few months until they could accommodate another customer. So after repeatedly complimenting a coworker’s clothes and being told they were Stitch Fix, I bit the bullet and ordered my first fix.
Last Wednesday I had the opportunity to model in Athleta’s Next f(IT) Girl Fashion Show & Charity Event featuring the new design collaboration between Athleta and Derek Lam 10 C. Fashion shows for the line have been popping up all over the country, and the Houston show went a step further and doubled as a benefit for Girls on the Run – Greater Houston.
