Winter Lights

So I have had a mad crush on winter lights slash whites. Something about this pairing makes it so crisp and ready for some snow to fall. I paired such a simple outfit but with the right colors it can complete any outfit. That is something I have learned lately. Color plays a HUGE part in style/fashion and it is so important to pay attention to the detail of colors. I kind of stopped wearing my colored pants since I have grown out of that style but some neutrals such as this one, I think is staying. & how darling are these pale pink pants that are a little ripped and next one my list.

Thanks for stopping by Buttercups! Means the world.  OH & I stole my friends darling golden doodle for this shoot. We all were at the grand opening of a friends food truck called Oddball Eats. If you are in Houston you should definitely try Oddball out!

This is the perfect holiday look that I had to share for all of you all that have holiday parties coming up. The print on this Topshop dress is so festive! I also paired it with this fab cape that is sadly sold out (just for now) but I linked a similar one. We stopped by this look alike Christmas tree farm and I thought it fit the theme pretty well. Chewy of course had to jump in with his adorable “Dear, Santa Define Good” sweater. Man I love that puppy dog.

Thanks for stopping by buttercups! I hope you enjoy your weekend. We plan to start Christmas festivities and I have a FULL schedule of photo shoots this weekend .

Stripes & Hunters





LUV_9314Dress: Topshop or MinkPink look alike | *Boots: On sale at Bloomingdale here, or price match by live chatting with Nordstrom here

Red with stripes are the perfect combo don’t you think? Since the weather has been gloomy the past what it feels like, 1920823 days, I decided it was time to take these bad boys out. I paired them with a classic striped dress and I love the combo. I had a little fun with this shoot pretending there was a puddle and I had to jump over it. Side note: I never understood why the guy needs to throw down his jacket in the movies for a puddle. Why can’t they just walk around it? I want to learn where that concept came from because it’s super silly to me.

Well thanks for stopping by! Today I have my favorite event of the year. Chateau Cocomar kids charity Christmas party for Neighborhood Centers.  Karen Martin, the owner of the castle, contributes to a fun filled day of snow, gifts, yummy food, amazing decor, and a story line for the kids. It’s such a magical time to experience these kids faces light up when they come to the castle. I use to coordinate this event when I was working there so tomorrow it’ll be so nice just to help out! I hope to take lots of pictures and blog about it soon.

*Update: Hunter boots are now 30% off so snag them before they all run out. A perfect Christmas gift!
