Oh, summer.  I can never get enough of you.

Long before Chad and I lived in Texas, I used to joke that visiting Houston in August is freezing cold literally all the time.  Everyone goes from their air-conditioned houses to their air-conditioned cars to their air-conditioned offices, so even if the temperature outside is hovering around 100 degrees or more, your experience is never hotter than about seventy-three for more than a minute or two at a time.

The moral of the story?  If you’re visiting Houston in August, bring a sweater.

But ever since we bought our house, Chad and I regularly do something that many Texans don’t: we walk places.  There are restaurants and shops within a few blocks of our house, and thanks in part to our New York roots, even when it’s a hundred degrees outside… we walk.

So my summer outfits have to be both practical and cute: which is how I fell in love with this dress.  It’s polished and pretty, but still functional enough that I can walk around in summer heat wearing it.  (It also has an extra bonus: a good bit of stretch in the material that magically hides the few extra post-baby pounds I’m still carrying!)

But a dress alone only gets you half way there, so I added some great accessories to this outfit.  This Chanel bag remains my prized possession, and pairing it with great jewelry and some Jimmy Choos? 

Summer perfection.

    Super jealous of your location! The only restaurant we can walk to is Jonathan’s the Rub (if you haven’t been, it’s delicious) and we just found out they’re moving. Very, very cute dress! That’s the only type of clothing I haven’t worn yet as I now think about ease of breastfeeding before putting anything on.
