Color in Fall

Color in Fall | Lexi & Lady

TOP: J. Crew (similar, similar)  |  SWEATER: Target (similar) |  PANTS: Express  |  HEELS: DSW  |  EARRINGS: Kate Spade (similar, similar)

Fall color doesn’t have to be all about muted or the traditional camel, mustard, olive, etc. In fact, the Pantone Color Institute added a lot of fun colors to the 2018 fall/winter palette. I added two bright colors to this outfit I wore last week for work. The weather was rainy and overcast and I needed something to brighten the day. I paired the pink top with a neutral navy cardigan from Target and yellow/gold Kate Spade earrings friends got me last year for my birthday. They’re so light and comfortable and add a little glam to any outfit. Fall colors are my favorite every year, but some days call for a lively vibe. Do you tend to wear color in the fall or stick to darker colors?

Temps are supposed to go back up this week and I couldn’t be more upset about it. That’s the thing with Texas weather, it teases you with cooler days and then disappears! One day maybe I will live in a place with four season. In the meantime, the cooler temps have me dreaming of our fall vacation in Europe two years ago. It was beautiful and magical! Couldn’t have picked a better time to go in my mind. Walking through the leaf covered grounds of Versailles in Paris and Hyde Park in London will be memories I cherish forever and think about every fall.

Today is the hub’s birthday! We celebrated yesterday by going to Fogo de Chao in The Woodlands and spent the rest of the day relaxing. He’ll have today and Tuesday off work so I am sure he will continue to soak up the quiet and relax some more. We are looking for an inexpensive weekend getaway so share your suggestions in the comments below!

Until next post…xoxo Becca

Weekend Recap: Bachelorette Party in Austin

Oh my goodness this lack of posting is becoming a terrible trend. I feel like I open every post with “I’m so sorry I have been MIA.” There is just so much going on lately and little time for creativity, much less shopping online for all the outfit details! Today I am simply sharing some pictures from this past weekend’s bachelorette party in Austin.

My once student assistant, turned intern, turned friend is getting married in January!!! I am so excited for her because she and her hubby-to-be are adorable. All of us had a great time in Austin and loved sharing the weekend experience with her. Without further ado…

Friday night we all met at the hotel and got ready for dinner. Weirdly enough, few pictures were taken! We ate at Geraldine’s at Hotel Van Zandt in Austin. The food was fantastic! It’s tapas style so you can order several “small bites” and make a meal of it while still trying several items from the menu. With creative cocktails and live music, you can’t go wrong with this place. Check it out for date night if you’re in the Austin area. After dinner we went to a couple of bars on Rainey Street. Such a different vibe to 6th Street and I like it so much better.

Saturday we had brunch at Snooze (a favorite of mine) followed by a half-day wine tour with Discover Texas Wine Tours. Our driver, Jason, was so friendly! We had a great time and I highly recommend this tour company if you are looking to do a wine tour. We stopped at Deep Eddy Vodka distillery, Duchman Family Winery, and Salt Lick Cellars. All were stunning visually. I was a little sad the weather was overcast and cold, but at least there was good lighting for pictures 😉  Saturday night we went to Rainey Street again and met up with some guys from a bachelor party we met the previous night. They were hilarious and kept us laughing until the bar closed. Visit Lustre Pearl if you want a casual, but lively place on Rainey. Great views of the skyline from the second floor!

Sunday I drove home to get the hubs and we headed to Houston for a couples shower. Sometimes I feel like the bride and groom are the younger version of us.
