summer style

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.
