I took a little break over the past week from blogging. Sometimes to let the creativity flow, it's good to get away from it for a few days. I have so much to share with you guys over the coming weeks though. There are going to be a few new posts coming up on 3HC and more to come around interiors. That's a passion I haven't had as much opportunity to share with you, but stay tuned! It's coming!

One of the things I've embraced this past year is not fighting the rain. We have had a ridiculous amount of water hit Houston and it's become one of my favorite times - when I'm not flooded in at least! From watching the thunder clouds and lightning storms to just listening to the pitter patter on the roof... I've embraced the gloomy days.

When I bought a pair of rain boots last fall, I really had no idea they would soon become the pair of shoes I wear more than anything else. From pants to shorts to cold and warm... I just seem to slip them on for all occasions.

White Jeans - Three Heel Clicks 1.jpg

Lately I've been in love with white jeans. I've always liked how fresh they look! Since our Summers are so hot here in Houston, I prefer to keep jeans reserved mostly for Fall, Spring and Winter. I picked this pair up at Kohl's not too long ago and love them. They have just the perfect amount of stretch and are under $60! I know, can you believe it?

White jeans are perfect during this time of year with warmer days and cooler nights. Since I'm on the shorter side, but still have a little curve - I prefer wearing a higher waist. I find it really elongates the leg and makes me look slimmer. Today I wore these with a soft linen top. This sage color is one of my new favorites. It's actually has a subtle polka dot and really plays nicely off the white.

Finding classic accessories are always something I'm on the hunt for. I really like the color nude, and recently pulled this clutch out of hiding. I've worn it previously here and here, but thought it would be perfect with these tan ankle strap pumps. This look is classic, relaxed and pulled together at the same time.

I've been really encouraging myself to find new locations to shoot at lately. This blog started out as something more of an experiment, but really evolved into a place for my creative energy to go. I really love the whole process from the initial staging of an outfit, location and photograph all the way through creating the written content. I feel like it's a place to carve out a creative voice and share my story. 

I hope you all really enjoy the content provided,  and I am always open to hearing feedback of what you might like to see in the future. Hope you have a lovely weekend and find a place to spend your creative energy!

Olive Trench

StyleCrystal JacksonComment

This olive jacket has been getting quit a bit of use out lately. Olive is a funny color. It works well as a neutral, but still gives a little punch. Today I wore it with a pair of crisp white shorts and a casual striped shirt. It was perfect for stomping around on a weekend day. The temps are back in the seventies and eighties which means our short lived winter is over here in Texas.

Building a transitional wardrobe can be a little overwhelming. Especially if you are one of those people who are selective about every item in you closet. I actually fall on the other end of the spectrum. I like to choose things in pieces instead of full outfits, and I've found that if I don't make a conscious effort to be selective, I can end up with a closet full of orphan items.

A few strategies for building a transitional wardrobe are: know you colors, find fabrics that work for you, and buy repeats. If you find something you like, buy it in two colors. I really strive to narrow my new purchases down to things in blues, pinks, or neutrals. I do really love aqua and yellow, but reserve those for added wardrobe items - not staples. Have a style point of view makes it so much easier to shop. I know that if I buy something in blush, pale pink or a peach I'll wear it a hundred times.

I also love camel. I wear it more often than black or brown so now when I find something in a neutral that's needed - that's where I begin. For today, I wore light colors to balance this olive jacket. The jacket was perfect as the breeze blew into the evening. The boots were comfortable as I took an afternoon stroll after getting tacos with a dear friend off Washington. Then, ran a few errands before retiring for the evening. I kept the outfit simple and classic but still looks fresh.
