Monday’s Musings

Hey Cats!

Happy Monday! It is finally starting to feel like fall in Houston, but only because it’s been raining. It was nearly 80 degrees last week, and my sweaters are literally crying in my closet because they want to be set free. It’s to the point where I’m about to wear them anyways. I mean, it’s cold in my office so that counts, right? I think so. Otherwise about 45% of my wardrobe will sit unworn, and I just can’t have that. I digress.

I love to turn everyday objects into lessons about life. For me, it makes things easier to understand if I can compare them to something tangible. I came across this adorable little analogy, and I loved it!

How cute is this? And it’s so true. It’s important to be confident and stand up for what you believe in, but also important to still be sweet to everyone you meet. It also gives a great answer to the question, “If you were a fruit, what would you be?” I think I may add this to my collage wall, when I get around to that. Also pineapples are very trendy right now, so we should all aspire to be like them.

Don’t forget to be a pineapple this week!

That’s all for meow!

Trends I’m Loving- Embroidery

Hey Cats!

I’m coming to you live from the oven I currently live in. The air conditioner is broken in our townhome and the man that came to fix it yesterday had to order a part, so it can’t be fixed until today. Being hot when I’m trying to sleep really brings out the worst in me, so I slept downstairs on the couch- it wasn’t so bad! But I’m already dreading having to go upstairs and get ready for work in the burning inferno that is my room-pray for me.

Now that summer is in full swing, I’ve noticed colorful embroidery popping up in many of my favorite stores. To me, embroidery has always screamed “summer-boho-carefree-easy-lazy-pool day” (yes, it screams all of those words), but I feel like it’s definitely having a big moment this summer! Here are a few of my favorites:

jcrew embroidery

 

I love this embroidered pom-pom tank from JCrew. The bright blue pops on the maroon in such a delightful way, and it has pom-poms, so it’s an obvious winner. This would pair well with white chino shorts or denim shorts for a casual afternoon (or Aggie gameday- it’s maroon, you knew it was coming), or black cigarette pants and wedges for a night out.

loft embroidered

 

This embroidered Cotton Silk top from LOFT is a great, breezy top that’s a perfect casual take on the trend. This would be great paired with shorts, as shown above, or with dark skinny jeans and natural wedges for dinner!

dress

 

This simple floral yoke cotton crinkle dress from eShakti is a simple, timeless piece that will wear well for many years. You could wear it as a beach cover-up, or with a cute pair of sandals for a lunch date!

How do you plan to wear embroidery this summer? Let me know!

Today, I’m linking up with Zelle from A Southern Style, Kristina from Medicine & Manicures, Katie from Champagne & Suitcases, and Amanda from As the Wine Cork Turns for #TrendingTuesday- head over and see what’s trendy this Tuesday!
