Faces and condensation

My love for Houston’s warmth is gone. Sunny skies and cool wind has been replaced with fog and humidity. I rather wear a coat than have to reapply deodorant at work. It’s not cute.

A little bit of gloom, a little bit school girl uniform. This white button up from AE is one of my favorites because it’s such a lightweight breathable piece. I was inspired by the large window in my living room and the overcast sky to play with lighting and shadow in these photos. It’s a little different, but I like it.

Have a great Tuesday and thank you for reading.

It was a promise of summer

I did it. I bought jeggings. After years of judging, I actually bought a pair and my god are they the most comfortable pair of pants I’ve ever owned. I even tweeted my praise to @AEO this morning and got a pleasant response. Let’s face it, they’re awesome. (Not just saying this because I’m competing in Project Live Your Life.) (I actually do love AE.) (A lot.)

I may love these jeans now, but I know I am quickly going to trade them in for a dress or skirt as soon as Houston turns into a pit of fire in the summer.

Have a great Friday and thank you for reading!

Yo.

It’s unusually warm in Texas. My mind is telling me February but my body is telling me March. It feels like spring and I love it.

Shirt: Daily Look (I love this silk version)
Skirt: Forever 21 (similar here)
Shoes: Vans
Watch: Michael Kors

Vans and Converse are my summer shoe of choice. I’ve never been a fan of sandals or flip flops, so I’m usually seen in a pair of sneakers and a skirt. I’ve missed this floral skirt over the winter months and can’t wait to add it to my regular rotation. It’s my lifeblood.

What are you excited to dig out of your closet for the warmer months?

Have a great Monday and thank you for reading.

It’s the day of love!

Or the day of, you know, eating heart-shaped stuff.

I’m feeling very “Maybe it’s Maybelline in these photos.” But whatever, it’s totally apropro because today is also Fancy Friday. Click here to check out the other lovely people sharing their V-Day looks.

It’s been a running joke that my boyfriend of two years has never bought me flowers, because he hasn’t, UNTIL TODAY. Behold, my bountiful bouquet!

Such a pretty little arrangement. We’re keeping it cool tonight with some Pinkberry and pizza. My kind of Valentine’s treat.

Thank you for reading and have a safe and wonderful evening.

Project Live Your Life

Guess what…..

(what)

PROJECT LIVE YOUR LIFE STARTS TODAY! Eeeeeeeeeee!

Please please PLEASE vote for me to help promote body diversity in American Eagle’s Back to School campaign. Fantastic people win every year, but they always look like the models AE would hire anyway. I want to break that tradition and be the first size 12 model for their campaign. Click here to go to my profile or on the Live Your Life widget on the left sidebar. You can sign in with your Facebook account and click the little hearts to “love” my photos, which counts as a vote. Don’t worry, it doesn’t post anything on your Facebook without your permission.

Dress: H&M
Trench: American Eagle (beautiful version here)
Shoes: Target
Necklace: Shasa

In celebration of Project Live Your Life, I wore my favorite AE trench that has such a charming J.Crew-esque lining. I received this necklace as a gift for my birthday and oh my god do I feel like I need to be dressed as an Egyptian princess. It’s so pretty and heavy like armor. I love it.

I would appreciate your support for helping me achieve this longtime dream of mine. I keep track of the campaign every year and I never have the confidence to enter. This ends now.

Have a great Monday and thank you for reading.

Rodeo

I live in Houston where the rodeo is a pretty big deal. Excuse me while I get into the pre-rodeo spirit with my plaid shirt and deer necklace.

“Leah, is that even a deer? What does that have to do with the rodeo?”

Sshh, just go with it.

I can’t believe I’ve been at my new job for a month. I’ve definitely been playing around with my work outfits more and getting creative with my limited business casual wardrobe.

Sweater: Target (similar here)
Skirt: Banana Republic (Ivory version)
Shoes: Macy’s
Purse: Forever 21 (similar here)
Necklace: Baublebar

Can you tell I just got off of work?

I played with patterns and textures today. The striped pattern is bold enough to pair with the smaller wool knit on the skirt. I balanced the black collar of the sweater with a large necklace, and kept my tights and shoes neutral. I was skeptical about my outfit as I was heading out the door, but the more I shamelessly looked at myself in the bathroom mirror, the more I liked it.

I am tired of wearing dark colors though. Come to me, spring!

Have a great Tuesday and thank you for reading.
