Spring in Texas means there’s one thing you’ll start seeing on the side of every road you drive on: Bluebonnets. We missed out on getting pictures in the fields of flowers last year, so this time we made a trip down to Waco, and took the back-roads in hopes of seeing some blue. We found a great spot off the road to pull off and take some pictures of the blue and orange flowers
While some states are already experiencing sweater-weather, Texas is still hanging on to the summer heat. I took advantage of the cooler, rainy morning this weekend and put on my J Brand leather vest, and a hat to protect my hair from the rain (obviously). By the time the afternoon rolled around, the sun came out and the vest came off.
Well, it’s the first of September, which means it’s time for a roundup of what I bought in August (and of course, how much I spent on it). I’ll start with the plain-Jane white tee shirt I got from TJMaxx for $12. Pretty much anyone who knows me will know that Vince is my favorite overall brand, and I’m always looking for their basics at TJ, so when the yellow tag sale rolled around in the beginning of August, I was able to snatch up this shirt.
I usually don’t wear colors this bright, but this orange Vince dress is one of my exceptions. A simple shift dress is appropriate for so many different occasions, which is why I love them so much. I brought out my wedding shoes to wear with the dress for a special dinner date with Tommy (an early celebration of 5 years of being together today…crap that’s a long time)!
I love an outfit that I can walk around in all day without being uncomfortable, and this one does the trick. This chambray top is a favorite $5 Goodwill score, and it’s the softest shirt EVER; I could sleep in it. Chambray (a very similar fabric to denim; the difference is in how the thread is sewn together) tops are on trend right now and look great with any color jean.
Tommy and I are big sushi fans, but we don’t get to eat it as much we would like, because our favorite sushi place is about an hour away (all of our favorite restaurants are about an hour away actually, except Chick-fil-a…but that’s what happens when you live in a small town). We finally had some errands to run in Fort Worth, so we took advantage and went to Blue Sushi on West 7th St, and they have a great happy hour all day on Sundays.
