Y'all (getting used to this Texas vernacular), it is hot in Texas. Obviously. But Coastal Texas is hot and sticky. So sticky. I sort of hate all my clothes - only because it's too hot to wear any. I desperately want a light weight maxi dress. I saw this and thought it was kind of fabulous.
Striped Linen Blend Maxi Dress - Forever 21 - $17.80

Long time no post! We are finally getting settled in Texas. I went an unspeakable amount of time without the internet, and three hellish days in a moving truck. I also suffered some SERIOUS set backs - mostly technological. Did you notice that the blog went missing?
The crazy thing is when my cousin emailed me to tell me it was down - I hadn't even noticed. Oh how neglectful I have been. Long story short, my gmail account was hacked and the hacker deleted this blog. Oh, my heart broke when I saw the damage. How quickly this place I have created over the past three years could be removed from existence.
Luckily, I was able to get everything restored. And I am finally in a place where I can tend to this blog the way I should, the way I used to.
This is my resolution. I will blog. I promise.
Thanks for always reading what I have to say, I am afraid I have been taking this whole blogging thing for granted.

I am slightly obsessed with this striped sweater I posted about a few weeks ago. So, I thought I would create a look around a similar sweater.
Pink Lemonade Gem Necklace - Charlotte Russe - $10.50
Bold-Stripe Sweater - Old Navy - $29.50 (Orig. $34.94)
Vibrant Skinny Ankle Jeans - Forever 21 - $24.90
Verity Peep-Toe Pumps - Taupe - Target - $20.98 (Orig. $29.99)
I am clearly loving the bold pants trend going on right now and seriously want to get my hands on a hot pink pair.
What do you think of this look? Is it something you would wear? Leave your thoughts below.

Laura was kind enough to point out these awesome green skinnies available at JCPenney.
City Streets® Super Skinny Green Jean - $19.99 (Orig. $38.00)
These are a great option for the look I posted last week (especially because Zara doesn't sell things online - boo). Like the Zara pants, they are available in a great selection of bright shades.
Would you wear them? Leave your thoughts below.
It's official, ladies. My little family is moving to Corpus Christi, Texas. My husband was accepted to graduate school at Texas A&M Corpus Christi. We are so excited and slightly terrified to move cross country with our new little baby. It is definitely going to be an adventure to move to a part of the country that I have never been to.
So, I have to ask, what do you all know about Corpus Christi? What areas do you recommend to live? What are some things we should make sure to do when we get there? Any advice would make me a very grateful lady.
