Three Heel Clicks - A Trip to The Rose Emporium (31).jpg

Although I still have posts to catch you up on my last trip to Birimingham, I unexpected was invited yestereday to join a friend at The Rose Emporium near Brenham, TX. If you live in Houston and you’ve never been then it’s time to get moving on making plans to visit. The grounds and store are in full bloom right now. I felt like I was instantly transported out of Texas and into an English country garden.

The Antique Rose Emporium is located near Brenham, TX and is filled with a variety of roses on display in the gardens and to purchase at their store. You will find beautiful varieties including climbing and shrub versions in various colors and scents! Little fact I learned from my friend on the trip and that roses have different appeals to different noses. That means if I smell a rose I love you might not like it as much!

This location hosts events and weddings! If you are in the market to book an event near Houston, I suggest taking a look at this one because it’s a dream come true in our Texas surroundings. You may remember this post on the Memorial Hermann Rose Garden near the medical center in the city. Although it’s such a pretty garden, getting out of the city is always refreshing for myself. I imagine it is for many of you as well!

Today I wore a pretty floral romper which you can find so many similar for under $30 on my Amazon Shop! It’s such a good price point and really flattering. I like to look for a more relaxed fit on the shorts when I’m shopping for a romper. I think they are more comfortable and allow you to move easily. I added a lace embellished cardigan, simple flat slides (which I basically wear every single day) and I added a hat to keep the sun off my face. This hat was found in a boutique in Marble Falls, TX. You can find more options below but if you are looking for hat inspiration check out this page full of hat looks!

I find getting outdoors this time of year is so beneficial for my mood. It’s so easy when you work from home to get into a rut and little day trips provide an outlet for adventure and inspiration. I have a few other locations I’m trying to squeeze in over the next two week like picking strawberries at a local farm! One of the other things I try to do when I’m out is check around on Yelp the best rated local restaurants and coffee shops. I happened on this day to find a cafe in Navasota owned by the mayor called Classic Rock Coffee which serves delicious coffee and a variety of healthy salads, wraps and sandwiches! I was really impressed and one of the locals referred us to visit.

One of the ways you can stay organized for a trip is to create a Pinterest board for inspiring places in nature, other people’s itineraries and restaurants. That makes it really easy to gather inspiration and gives you a reference point when you are quickly trying to find something to eat or do on a trip. I created a short video for today’s trip that’s about a minute long and includes views of the pretty gardens. Watch the video here or click on the photo below for the entire

After you create a board, you can easily list out in your phone’s notes or email yourself an itinerary for a trip if you prefer to schedule things. I like a loose schedule that allows for spontaneous things to come up if we come across something inspiring! But I do like having a general game plan to prevent hungry stomachs and chaos.

Three Casual Looks Wearing Yoga Pants

Three Heel Clicks - Three Casual Looks with Yoga Pants (7).jpg

Athleisure is trending right now and it’s not just reserved for the gym or yoga studio. I love being athletic and getting a good workout in, but I also love looking put together whether I’m at the gym, home or out running errands. On days I do not have meetings or photo shoots you will find me more often than not in athleisure. I love mixing and matching yoga gear with cotton tops, hoodies and casual accessories like baseball caps or totes to take an outfit from workout to street worthy. Today I’ve put together three looks where I’m wearing workout clothes out in public.

Outfit #1

The first look I wore last week to dinner and then to a hotel before we flew out to Birmingham, Alabama. I wore a pair of simple black slim fitting joggers, a loose black cotton tank, a pink hoodie and grey sneakers. This look can easily work if you are doing a lot of travel or walking for the day. Chances are you already have black leggings or joggers, a tank and a colorful hoodie or zip up! Just throw it all together and swipe a little nude lipstick and add mascara to take this look out for a spin.

Outfit #2:

For the second look I wore a pair of cropped yoga pants with a light pink ruffle top for a quick coffee run. I added a pair of blush sneakers and a structured bag to go from the mat to the real world. Finally, I added a pop of color with a sunflower yellow sports bra. Remember, the rule of three colors. You can mix and match outfits by sticking to three colors. Here I used teal, pale pink and yellow but you can accomplished this look using any three colors.

Outfit #3:

For the third look I am wearing a monochromatic outfit complete with maroon leggings, a sports bra and long sleeve cotton tee. I added a blush hat and blush colored sneakers. Since I wore this look to pick up groceries I brought along one of my favorite bags from Longchamp that’s perfect for toting things home.

Spring Statement Bags That Will Make You Swoon

With the changing of the seasons I always reach for a new bag or two to freshen up my wardrobe. I’ll be honest, although I have many pairs of shoes I’m not one to spend more than $100 on a pair. I have a similar motto with bags. I usually stick to $500 or below and oftentimes more in the $150-250 price range. I am messy. If I buy a new bag coffee or makeup will eventually make their way into the bottom. With that being said I am not a fan of investing into high end luxury brands since I put a lot of wear and tear on items. I’d rather spend in the mid-range so I still get quality but can enjoy wearing a purse instead of worrying I’ll tear or stain it.

Shop the Look:

Recently, I received this beautiful patchwork leather bag (it’s on sale here for under $160!) as a gift from my other half. I usually stick to buying bags in solids but this one worked perfectly with all of the navy and denim items I own. Today I pair it with skinny jeans and a navy blouse for an adorable date night look. This also works for a happy hour or night out with the girls. I added my favorite pair of block heel sandals back in stock and on sale for $40!

I also really like how this particular bag turns into a clutch by removing the cross body strap. It’s the perfect size for a night out and can store keys, phone, small wallet, compact, mascara and lipstick. I wrote recently about Two Spring Accessories You Need Now and included a round up of straw bags. Straw bags are another Spring handbag staple.

I wore this to dinner when we were in Birmingham, Alabama last weekend. We went to a delicious restaurant that you can watch on my stories under “Birimingham” on Instagram called Perfect Note. It’s a live jazz and blues club, cocktail bar, and really delicious Southern inspired food. They are centrally located in the city by the Galleria Mall and are locally owned. The music was fantastic! The food was so delicious! Finally, the owners couldn’t have been more hospitable or kind. I highly recommend visiting them!

What are some places you’ve found in the Birmingham area? Or your current home town?
