Spring is officially here! For this post, I wanted to feature the fabulous multicolored striped vintage shorts I bought from Crysy Couture’s pop-up shop that she had a month ago. Since I wanted the focus to be on the shorts, I paired it with a simple white thrifted tee, a strand of red beads, and my oversize “Mickey Mouse” sunglasses that I had bought from a Santee Alley vendor in LA several years back.

I chose to wear my Irene sandals that Cobbhill Shoes sent over, just in time for warmer weather in Houston. That sandal has literally been my “uniform shoe,” as they are so comfortable, easy to take on/off and go with pretty much anything.

Oh gosh, where do I start on this one…. Well, for starters, I’ve always wanted to shoot at the famous MIDTOWN sign in Bagby Park near Downtown Houston. Now that I have my perfect photographer, I had to figure out what to wear for the shoot. After days of wracking my brain, deciding what to wear; it hit it me the night before the shoot.

I had saved up and purchased my FIRST vintage Chanel dress from Cheeky Vintage. I can’t find much about the dress, only that it was made in the 1980’s when Karl Lagerfeld had taken over as designer. I love how it has a 1920s silhouette and tiered skirt. I paired it with a vintage fan-shaped evening clutch I had found at a community garage sale last year and my favorite (and highest) black heels- my H by Halston for Bakers heels.

When my friend Elyse, who owns Bark & Beam, let me borrow a crystal Grecian wreath for my LA trip, I knew I had found the right headpiece for this look I was going for. You see, Elyse’s super-bohemian crowns have been on my radar ever since I caught a glimpse of them during a Kaleidoscope Houston meeting. As it turns out, Elyse started the company with her brother as an outlet for them to sell things they like to make (Her: floral crowns, macrame and refurbished furniture. Him: metal work). What started out as a fun hobby, making crowns for her Renaissance costumes, turned out to be a pretty genius business idea. She eventually teamed up with Em of Of Myth and Muse and created custom designs for her spring line. Those designs, along with other pieces (including new designs with succulents), are available on her Etsy.

I was recently introduced to LulaRoe when I received a pair of leggings and a dress that I had won in a giveaway.

LulaRoe was launched about three years ago by DeAnne and Mark Stidham. The name “LulaRoe” was inspired by DeAnne’s granddaughers- Lucy, Lola and Monroe. The brand started out by only making 1,000 units of any print; but now that they are growing, the number has risen to 2,500, thus making the designs more unique. For more information and to look into becoming a consultant, check out LulaRoe.com or join a Consultant VIP Facebook Group, where you can participate in online pop-up shops.

I took my LulaRoe dress out for a morning at Green Street. Since it was somewhat chilly, I added my vintage jacket and paired them with my vintage Lauren Ralph Lauren concha belt. My vintage booties added for a laid-back boho vibe.
