Mustard is a current favorite color for Fall this year along with burgundy and a cognac brown. This dress is one from last year, but I restyled it with a braided belt I’ve had for years and over the knee boots. To top it off I added this structured handbag for a classy touch. It was a birthday gift this year but comes in grey, soft pink blush and this amazing buttery color. It’s a little bohemian, a little western and still chic at the same time.

I wore this outfit last week to go to the Rainbow Lodge for lunch. If you’ve never been there and live in Houston or are traveling here any time soon you have to go! It has such an amazing menu and at lunch you get a three-course-meal for only $15. I ordered the fish, a salad and then they brought me a delicous pound cake drizzled in a citrus like glaze. Their patio is amazing day or night!

It couldn’t have been a prettier day to enjoy a slow lunch and the weather. I oftentimes order a cappuccino or espresso to pair with dessert. I find it helps keep me perked up after a full meal and contrasts nicely with a few bites of dessert. Most places now offer almond milk instead of dairy so if available I opt for that and leave the sugar out.

How to Take a Summer Skirt into Fall

How to Take a Summer Skirt into Fall (15).jpg

Wow was this weekend relaxing. I went up to my family in College Station, TX on Friday night and had the best time. Sometimes it’s nice just to kick it at someone else’s house. From watching Space Jams and playing Wordscapes at my sister’s place to getting tons of exercise and rest, I came back feeling rejuvenated.

This week we are getting a cold front and I may finally be able to wear a jacket! I put together this outfit on Friday to share with you guys an easy way to make a summer skirt transition to fall. You may remember this skirt from earlier last spring where I wore it with a cotton top and espadrilles. I loved how it was lightweight an airy for earlier this year. Now I added a pair of over the knee boots (bought last year but they are still in stock and HIGHLY recommend) and deep burgundy accessories. Finally, a soft cozy fitted grey sweater topped it all off.

One of the things that makes this feel less summer and more fall is the color palette and textures. Suede boots, a felt hat, and soft sweater quickly transition the outfit into autumn. Then, adding the grey and burgundy give the palette a rich muted look instead of spring and summer’s bright pinks. I also added a pearl embellished bobby pin to keep my hair out of my face with or without the hat.

Are you guys transitioning summer pieces into fall? I’d love to hear about them.

Houston Hotspots: Cornelius Nursery

Three Heel Clicks - Houston Hotspots - Cornelius Nursery (1).jpg

If theres’s one thing you do this weekend I recommend heading to pick out pumpkins to decorate the house, your doorstep or just to pick up one for Halloween. I recently found this nursery here in Houston which was surprisingly in the middle of the city! It was HUGE. It had every pumpkin imaginable and tons of plants. Cornelius Nursery was found over 30 years ago is an is a staple for succulents, perennials and evergreens. I loved getting to visit this week and found my favorite pumpkin was the white “Enchanted pumpkin.”

After spending some time exploring the garden, I decided it was time to see what was in the neighborhoods surrounding this area. Cornelius Nursery is located just outside of the Galleria area in Houston where there are lovely town homes. Houston is a strange mix of historical homes, modern architecture and industrial. I found a sweet little street lined with various styles of town homes right across from the nursery. Most of them look like they dated back several decades and had such charm! Their doorstops were decked out in fall wreaths and pumpkins.

I love walking around neighborhoods when I travel or even just drive into the city. Each one has it’s own character and over the years I’ve found so many adorable spots. I try to take notes of things I would like one day when I finally decide to purchase a home. I’ve been a notorious renter for the past decade and would like to find a quaint place to call my own eventually.

Although our nights have really cooled down and it’s crisp in the morning we are still getting mid-high 80’s degree weather in the middle of the day. I’ve been wearing pants more frequently than I do throughout the Spring and Summer but I’ve had to be sort of creative incorporating Fall into outfits. I wore a poncho earlier in the week which was plaid over a tank top and jeans but for today I decided to grab this lightweight plaid scarf instead of wearing a cardigan.

Scarves are one of the easiest accessories you can add to your Fall wardrobe and they are not only pretty but practical. You can wear them traditionally or as a shawl. If they are on the smaller side they can be worn in your hair or tied around your purse. They add an element of chic to most looks and can take a basic outfit and make it special.

I love picking scarves up from vintage shops, street vendors and then also some of my favorite retailers such as Old Navy. I have purchased numerous ones from Old Navy and this one came from there, too! I love the way it’s more on the lightweight side instead of a thick heavy wool one. Makes it perfect for our warm Southern days.

What are your favorite types of Scarves and how do you like to wear them?
