Tee: Forever | Jeans: Standards & Practices | Shoes: Converse | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Glasses: Karen Walker

Alright ladies, if you are like me, work outs are a must in the mornings or they won’t happen. This adorable and affordable work out tee is under $10. Yes, it is a work out tee but a perfect transitional piece for when you are in a hurry for plans after your work out and you have no time for a complete outfit change. I changed my leggings for some comfortable black jeans with some converse and this was my go to for lunch plans. A bunch of purfume and a shower comes later. Anyway, I thought I would share this transitional look for you all. Now you have no excuses for those gym days when you have plans right after. You shouldn’t have to cancel your gym plans just because of other plans you have going on. Try to fit them all in! I have been on a workout kick lately and LOVING it. It feels good getting my booty back in shape.

Hope you all had a happy weekend! Boy am I happy football season is over with. As much as I love football, I feel like its drawn out for months and months. It’s such a great sport but it overcomes the Raads household sometimes so huuray I survived! The girls and I celebrated with a drink last night at the Super Bowl party while the guys watched.

Happy Monday loves and be sure to check out this blog Monday-Friday every morning at 8AM!

Woven Linen Dress: Sienna Sky | Wedges: Jessica Simpson (limited sizes left so similar cuties here) | Purse: Matt & Nat | Watch: Michael Kors | Earrings: Kendra Scott

Everyone needs a simple but detailed woven linen dress in their wardrobe. The best part about this one you ask? It is under $50 and has POCKETS. How cute is that? Pairing this linen dress with the perfect wedges and a cross body made it effortless. Sadly these Jessica Simpson heels are sold out mostly everywhere but Amazon has limited sizes left. I will have to keep a look out when they come back in stock. Some might say I am too early for Spring but I say in Houston, there are no seasons. Winters overrated in my book, aka I hate it, so I am gearing up and ready for Spring and Summer (my absolute favorite time of the year). That is probably why I live in Texas and will always live here my whole life.

Thanks for stopping by and oh Happy Friday! Hope you all have a restful weekend. I think thats what hubby and I have planned this weekend (I think!).

dress_up_buttercup_dede_raad_houston_fashion_style_blog_cartoonnetwork (2 of 8)Stripes : Jcrew (almost identical) | Jeans: Articles of Society (in love) | Jacket: Topshop | Shoes: Converse (must have) | Purse: Michael Kors

What an easy go to look for running around these fabulous February days. This Jcrew tripped shirt has the perfect touch of pink that can add a spice in your striped tee collection. Pairing the Topshop jean jacket around the waste breaks up the all white look and gives it another denim feel. I know white Converse made a debut last summer but I believe they are here to stay with the casual look and I am loving it. This effortlessly chic look can be recreated by you! I would love to see how you style your Jcrew striped tees this season. Especially hot pink striped tees because they are the cutest.

Dress: Jella C | Blazer: Vince Camuto (Similar) | Flats: Yosi | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Earrings: Kendra Scott

A white sweater dress is kind of hard to style in my opinion but once I spotted this tan blazer, it all came together for some work attire inspiration. This sweater dress is darling but maybe a little too tight of a sweater dress. I tend to go more comfortable with my clothing now and this was something I had to watch when I was wearing it. Placing a blazer did make the look more comfortable and I think perfect for those office days. I remember always getting so board of office clothes and this little ensemble would have been perfect with some nude heels.

I wanted to first thank you all for your patience with all the malfunctions I have been struggling with the past couple days (hence my blog lack of blog post yesterday). I still am blogging everyday, Monday-Friday, but my website was so jacked up I could not get a post in. I still am posting from another system today and will probably be on the phone all day trying to fix the problem. Again THANK you for your patience and willingness to come back everyday! At least I got my page back up and running vs Monday night when it wouldn’t even load. Oh the joys. Happy Hump Day!
