The boy and I were in Austin recently, just to have a quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of Houston. Before the getaway, I had also done some research (mainly Instagram) on some cool murals located around the city. The large “Willie Nelson” mural was done by Wiley Ross, and is located on 7th and Neches in downtown. The “You’re My Butter Half” mural is located on E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd and Alamo St. The “Smile” and smaller “Willie Nelson” murals are located on South Congress by Hey Cupcake!.

I recently received some dainty jewelry from my lovely friend, Julia LoVan- a jewelry designer and consultant out of California. LoVan, an Iowa native, is currently residing in Orange County and not only creates jewelry, but is also working on a summer collection of sewing patterns for the modern gal. She explains, “This first collection will be a grouping of patterns that I feel any modern gal would like to know how to make for herself and for her loved ones, like a classic dress silhouette, a purse, or a camisole. After years of creating product, I found that teaching others to sew quality items for themselves (or mend their favorite items) was one of the best things I could do to help them live a less consumerist lifestyle.”

I received the Lariat Hammered Necklace, a Bracelet Stack, with a Bright Sky Blue Faceted Glass Beaded Bar Bracelet. These pieces are from the Rise jewelry collection of her ‘pet project’ – J. LoVan. J. LoVan is a sustainable company that helps to empower both local and global communities. Julia’s designs are crafted from upcycled, vintage, and new materials. I wanted to pair the bits and baubles with my white, gauzy vintage dress and olive green vintage vest because I feel that LoVan’s jewelry exudes an earthy-bohemian vibe, which is what my “wardrobe mood” was that day. Be sure to also follow Julia over at TrouvesHome.com and on Instagram.

Last night, I attended the launch party of a new addition to Houston’s art scene in Eado- the Sugar & Cloth Color Wall (and partial sidewalk). The wall is located at Headquarters (opening soon)- at 3302 Canal Street, you CAN’T miss it!

In case you didn’t know- Sugar & Cloth is a highly-regarded DIY/lifestyle blog by Ashley Rose, that is based in Houston, TX. I am really excited that she brought this fab color wall to the city, so that people can capture memories with friends and family. The party last night did just that… I saw families, mothers and daughters, bloggers, artists and photographers- take unique and fun photos, and just enjoying being in the moment. Of course, no party can be without a DJ and the peeps at Deep Eddy Vodka. Treats and bites were on-hand from local food trucks- El Tiempo (yummers veggie torta) and Frosted Betty.

If you do venture over to the wall, be sure to tag your photos: #sugarandclothcolorwall
