Let’s Rent the Runway!

renttherunway7


Ever dreamed of owning a faaancy designer piece for a day? With Rent the Runway, you can! Their website offers a slew of gowns, dresses, tops, bottoms, purses, and accessories right off the runway. These items can be yours for four or eight days, and the option to select a second size for free ensures you will be dressed To the Nines for the occasion.

I’ll be honest. I loved this jumpsuit so much that I wore it twice. The thick fabric felt so comfortable and soft against my skin. The cutout, cropped wide leg, and sash were the ultimate feminine touches. Ooh, I was swimming in compliments. :)

Aaaand…

For that burgundy beauty? My boyfriend got it for me, when we visited the Goorin Bros. store in Austin, TX. Let me tell you… we spent HOURS in there. He definitely did not expect for me to search that long. With so many beautiful and unique designs, I had to try them all!! Availability in various sizes allowed for the perfect fit and many contenders for me to choose from. Their hats are also made of the utmost quality. I mean, this one took five days to weave! Goorin Bros. has been around for over 100 years, and I have a feeling that this hat will live just as long. Thank you, baby!

Matching Set

Best. Deal. EVER.

When I discovered this stellar, woven two-piece (on clearance!), I quickly realized that I actually picked up three outfits. Mind blown. What? Top with black skinny jeans and the skirt with a crop top?! Score!!

My lovely lady, mom, was in town from Florida. Since we love a good shopping adventure, I had to introduce her to Nordstrom Rack. As we rummaged through all the clothing racks and tried on pairs upon pairs of shoes, she squealed, “I love this place!!” I smiled the widest of smiles. She also took in this medium gem to fit my XS frame in mere seconds. Yep.

Takeaway? My mom is the gem.

As we approach the holiday season, I am reminded of the many things I am fortunate to have: good health, loving family, beautiful home, supportive friends, a car, wonderful boyfriend, sweetest furbaby, the best fur nephew, and the opportunity to celebrate the holidays with my family. I remember these as I excitedly look forward to next week!!!

I also thank YOU for reading. :)

Make today a great day!

Denim Jacket

Have a dinner or party to attend right after work? Take an essential, little white dress from day to night. For day, dress the LWD down with a denim jacket and fringe sandals. To transition the look into the night, lose the jacket and throw on some heels!

This GAP denim jacket is a wardrobe staple that will be worn for years to come.TeresaNguyenTwoTwentyPhotosHoustonFashionBlogger-5TeresaNguyenTwoTwentyPhotosHoustonFashionBlogger-11TeresaNguyenTwoTwentyPhotosHoustonFashionBlogger-10TeresaNguyenTwoTwentyPhotosHoustonFashionBlogger-3TeresaNguyenTwoTwentyPhotosHoustonFashionBlogger TeresaNguyenTwoTwentyPhotosHoustonFashionBlogger-2TeresaNguyenTwoTwentyPhotosHoustonFashionBlogger-6 TeresaNguyenTwoTwentyPhotosHoustonFashionBlogger-12TeresaNguyenTwoTwentyPhotosHoustonFashionBlogger-7

Nike Unlimited Colorway

The summer competitions are here!

I had the opportunity to try a pair of Air Zoom Pegasus 33 from the new unlimited colorway collection from Nike, before they were released yesterday! They arrived just in time for tonight’s opening ceremony. Let me tell ya… they are as pretty as they are functional. This is my running shoe, because of its light weight, major support, and responsive cushioning, which all help me run my quickest! This unlimited colorway collection has Nike’s distinct highlighter yellow ‘volt’ fade into their ‘hyper-punch pink’. This gradient of vibrant shades was inspired by brightly colored birds and shiny beetles that inhabit the tropical rain forests of Brazil and represents unlimited athletic abilities and unlimited inspiration that can be found in our surroundings.

Just looking at them… I was immediately inspired.

Plunging Lace-Up

Take the plunge and lace it up.

This lace-up gave me retro feels, so I added some flare: a pair of bell-bottoms to be exact.

70’s look complete.

Finally, had the opportunity to dine at the cute, little cafe, The Honeymoon, for my most favorite meal of the day — brunch. I instantly felt whisked away to New Orleans, the moment I walked inside. The marquee lights along the arches, the gold accents around the bar, the marble countertops above wicker chairs, and floral wallpaper stretched to the high ceilings took me back to a place that I love visiting for great food and good vibes. You get both of those here!

IMG_3730

The Honeymoon is known for their fine coffee, and I asked for their sweetest one. Coffee connoisseurs, I know what you’re thinking… sugar water with a hint of coffee bean sounds great. The barista recommended that I try their latte. I took it down in maaaybe a gulp and a half.

These pretty pieces from Richly Clad had heads turning and people staring. The sequined bralette subtly peeped through the sheer top. Had to keep the outfit 100% cotton to stay cool.

 I came back again a few days later for brunch. I ordered the jambalaya risotto, and my boyfriend ordered the smoked salmon. Both were so delicious that I finished mine and the rest of his!

And, this. I am a fan of dining outdoors. There are plenty of wicker chairs and tables to bask in the Texas heat and wave at the red double-decker buses driving by.

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I relaxed a little at the pool, worked a bit, and cooked dinner with friends!

It’s a new week. Let’s make it a fabulous day and welcome the last week of July with open arms!

Happy Monday!

Nude Layers

Sexy layers of nude colored silk, lace, and chiffon. They make for an ethereal, monochromatic look from head to toe.nudedress6

I found this outfit at Richly Clad, a charming boutique set inside a house. Yes, a house! It is cozy and inviting, just like a house with the prettiest owners should be! Cara and Kahia, have had several years managing boutiques together and curating fabulous looks for their clients. In March, they opened Richly Clad, where you will find beautifully-made, unique pieces that you won’t find anywhere else in Houston. They support their local artists, and they are quite creative themselves! Cara enjoys making jewelry, and her dad builds the furniture you see in the store. Kahia’s husband creates some of the paintings hanging on the walls. All are available for purchase.

To complement the nude attire, I did a soft brown smoky eye using the colors, Naked and Buck, in the Urban Decay Naked Palette $54 and a berry brown on the lips using Too Faced Pink Chocolate $22.

I got these linen heels for 10 whoppin’ dollars. They were marked down an additional 40% off, and I used an old birthday gift card! Saved $88, so I was quite the happy girl. :)

Aaaand, I am all smiles, because it is my baby’s birthday week! I enjoy showering the ones I care about with love, hugs, and kisses every day, but I like to multiply that by infinity and beyond on their birthdays! I am thankful to have you in my life, mi amor.

Have a wonderful day, my friends!
