Swept away by Summer


As of lately, I have felt totally swept away by summer! Although it has finally passed 100 degrees, I still love summers in Texas. I dont know quite how to go about explaining it. 

My low maintenance natural hair styles, running regimen and summer fashion has kept me in a state of pure bliss!

We spent the weekend in Arkansas for a family picnic that was on Saturday! Nothing quite compares to family time in the country. Granny, the matriarch of the family, is an feisty 84-year old lady that thinks even at nearly 30...we still need 'lunch money' for the drive back to Dallas! We are so very grateful to have her in our lives! And if God says the same, I would love to give her the next great grandbaby during her lifetime! She already has two! 

Before we left for Arkansas, we continued our weekly tradition with date night. It was National Tequila Day on Friday so I decided to stick with margaritas! 

To dinner, I wore a dress that I bought last year from ASOS that is designed by Warehouse - a London-based high street fashion brand. I paired the dress with the City Bliss heels in Nude from Lola Shoetique. My lip color is MAC Heaux lipstick with Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bauhau5.

The rest of the weekend was pretty low key for hubby & I! We drove to Arkansas on Saturday morning, which was the day of the picnic. Stayed up all night spending time with family enjoying everyone that came in town to spend the weekend together! More family time on Sunday and then we left to drive back to Dallas around 4 pm! 

This weekend coming up should be pretty fun...as we are going to a cooking class! I can barely contain my excitement! 







My second day curls on Saturday were made possible by the pineapple method! Check out this article here if you are wondering what the heck I am talking about! 



I am wearing the NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Yu. I knew we were going to be outside all day at the picnic so I wanted to wear light makeup and light clothing! Jeans were a must so that I didn't get eaten alive by mosquitoes! I paired my distressed jeans (similar, similar) with simple statement jewelry. The Aria necklace in Gold from Stella & Dot and the Michael Kors Lexington bracelet watch that I wear nearly every single day were a perfect pairing!


I want to send a special thank you to those who continue to read my blog regularly even when I cannot post as often as I would like! Your support means the world to me!
