The Recap: Texas Summer



Good morning, ladies! The weekend is here already.
Because today is Saturday, let's go ahead and do a
quick recap of the main pointers from this week's
blog topic. This week has been all about refreshing
your summer wardrobe for any and every occasion!
Just click on the heading of each section,
and you'll link back to that day's post.

A hundred degrees outside, sixty degrees in the office.
Try a pretty shell or sleeveless dress with a cardigan.
Now is also the perfect moment for the dressy mule trend!
These slip-on loafers make summertime office wear easy.

Be cute, be cool, be comfy. Linen shirts and easy
slip on flats are the way to go. Feeling extra bold?
Dare to don a pair of patterned shorts this season.

There are two ways to tackle a formal event...
the first is with the lightest, gauziest of fabrics.
Think in terms of luxurious silk, tulle, and lace.
The second is with stunning and unusual accessories.

Occasion



Texas summers... I hear you. It's easy to lose motivation
when the temperatures are so hot. But think of this week
as a closet kick-start! Hopefully, this week will
give you the fashion inspiration you need to help
carry on through the rest of the summertime.
We've tackled office wear and casual wear... 
today, let's discuss special occasions.


Gauze and Tulle
Think in terms of light, lovely layers.
Gauze, tulle, and silk will keep you cool
while communicating unspeakable elegance.
Try a simple shell with a short skirt.


Silk Dress
If you love dresses more than skirts,
try crinkled-silk for a natural look.
If you're cold natured, take a light wrap
or cardigan for when you're inside.


Feminine Florals
Make your accessories the focal point of your outfit.
Try a bag with rosette details and ribbon edging.
It can dress up the most casual of outfits,
and make the dressiest of occasions fun!

Out and About


It's Texas. It's summer. It's hot. If you're losing
motivation when it comes to your wardrobe, don't despair!
This week's blog series is designed to kick start your
summer wardrobe, and give you style inspiration.
Yesterday, we discussed office wear... today,
let's tackle casual wear. "Day off" doesn't
have to mean a day off from style! Refresh your
casual wear wardrobe with these staples...


J. Crew - Size 8
Linen Shirt
You know us, we love our linen! But really,
there's hardly anything as comfy and chic
as a linen blouse. For a bit of extra fun,
try a shirt with a summery tribal pattern.


Loft - Size 6
Patterned Shorts
Take your summer casual wear game up a notch
with a pair of on-trend patterned shorts.
Simply pair with sandals and a white tee
for instant cute and instant cool!


French Connection - Size 7
Funky Shoes
For maximum breathability and total comfort,
try slide sandals or slip-on canvas flats.
Opt for a funky pattern or unusual details.
These shoes would make jean shorts and a
plain white tank look utterly stylish!

It's Wednesday already, ladies... which means it's
jewelry day at the Boutique! Swing by for a cup of
fresh brewed Starbucks coffee, and take a peek
at all the lovely new treasures on display.

At the Office


Dressing for the summertime in Texas can be a bit of a bummer.
With temperatures scraping the hundreds, it's easy to lose
motivation. This week's blog is designed to help kick start
your fashion motivation, and get you through the rest
of the summer! Today, let's focus on office wear...
Refresh your wardrobe with these style fixes!


Lovely Tanks and Shells
Light, cool, and lovely... chose a sleek tank top or
breezy shell with a bright pattern or a bold color.
Commute in comfort, and bring a cardigan or light
blazer to combat the frigid icebox of the office.


Structured Dress
Because the openness of a dress sure beats
the restrictiveness of trousers, am I right?
Keep things polished with a structured and
tailored silhouette. If you're cold-natured,
opt for a dress in a slightly heavier fabric.


Summery Mules
Embrace this season's loafer mule trend or
grab your favorite pair of slip-on sandals.
Chic, yet practical--it's the way to go!

Meanwhile, it's Tuesday... and it's time for our
weekly Last Chance Rack! Shop items that have been
marked down to their lowest prices, and are only
on display for one more day. And we have coffee!

Beat the Summer Heat


July is already halfway gone, and August isn't far away.
The temperatures continue to climb, and let's not even
discuss the humidity! Dressing for the Texas summer
always presents its own set of challenges, whether
you're struggling to balance your work wardrobe to
accommodate the furnace of the outdoors and the
icebox of the office, or just feeling a little
deflated and uninspired because of the heat.
Join us on the blog this week, as we tackle
a few of those summer challenges head on!

This week, we'll cover three different areas:
office wear, casual wear, and occasion wear.
Don't let the summer heat get you down...
reenergize your wardrobe this week instead!

-
Meanwhile, it's Monday... and it's time for the weekly
Girlfriend Special! Just grab a friend, bring her shopping,
and you both earn 30% off the entire Boutique! And did
I mention that we brewed fresh Starbucks coffee too?

Iris Apfel and Fashion Must-Haves


Every season, magazines and stores push the season's trends.
A brief Google search will reveal list after list, with titles
such as "10 Things Every Woman Needs" and "30 Essentials for
Every Closet." Are these must-haves really must-haves?
What do you actually, truly need in your wardrobe?

There are a few staples that everyone can agree on...
the perfect jeans, a simple white shirt, leather heels,
the iconic "little black dress," and a classic blazer
are some that come to mind immediately. Timeless pieces
like these transition: season to season and year to year.

For the French designer Anne Fontaine, it's all about
the classic white shirt. It's an essential, and every
woman's wardrobe should have "a beautiful blouse."
Karl Lagerfeld champions the little black dress,
because it's the answer to any occasion. In it, one is
never overdressed or underdressed. For Michael Kors,
the focus is on accessories, because they are the
"exclamation point of a woman's outfit,"

These kinds of essentials are timeless... they never
go out of style! Certainly, grounding your wardrobe with
essentials is step one. But where do you go from there?

On the blog, we've discussed the difference between fashion
and style before. Fashion is what rolls into the stores
every season. Fashion is what you buy. Fashion is the trends
filling magazine pages and splashing across advertisements.
Style on the other hand, is the application of fashion.
Style is what individuals do with fashion and trends. It's how
you interpret them, and incorporate them into your own closet.

On that note, there's one last fashion icon we have to mention.
Iris Apfel. Her legacy as a businesswoman, interior designer, and fashionista is truly inspiring. You can read more about her story on her official Facebook page. For Iris, there are two
absolute essentials to pull off any outfit. Are you ready?
Here they are... hair done properly, and good shoes.
Given that simple rule, it's no wonder she looks smashing
for every occasion! Be intentional, be confident.
Wear what you love and love what you wear.

Be sure to share them with us when you shop!
