Another summer day, another summer dress! I really can’t stop wearing anything but dresses in this Houston heat! When I saw this dress from Discover L.O.L.A, I knew that I had to have it. Tassels are a huge trend right now that I can’t seem to get enough of and coupled with the adorable neckline, this dress is too cute!

They wouldn’t call it sweet summertime without some sweet treats! I didn’t use to have a sweet tooth and I’m not sure where it came from, but as of recently, I have been on a sweets kick! One of my favorite things about Houston is all of the food options we have, #fatgirlproblems. But really, it is a foodie’s dream come true! If you are in the Houston area, here are a few spots you MUST try:
Sprinkles Cupcakes– I don’t know how they do it because I’m not even a huge cupcake fan, but Sprinkles has officially converted me! The best part is that they have a cupcake ATM machine! You heard me right 🙂 My favorite cupcake is the Vanilla with sprinkles.
Sweet Paris Crepes– I may have recently just started branching out on sweets, but crepes will always be my one true love! Sweet Paris has both sweet and savory crepes so there is something for everyone and for every meal of the day. My favorite savory crepe is the chicken and mushroom and my favorite sweet crepe is the Nutella, strawberry, banana and coconut.
Hugs and Donuts– Let me preface this by saying that this is not your normal donut shop and if you haven’t jumped on the gourmet donut bandwagon yet, you are missing out! Some of my favorites include the almond joy, peach and cinnamon toast crunch, and the maple and bacon. Donuts are no longer just for breakfast and you can find Hugs and Donuts open until 9 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. At the end of the day, you can usually snag a buy one, get one free deal!
Steel City Pops– This just might be the hottest joint in town right now according to every girls Instagram! Their popsicles are made from all natural and local ingredients and are pretty darn tasty to boot. I have yet to check them out but can’t wait to try the watermelon, coconut, and blueberry and basil popsicles!
Besides beating the heat with your favorite treat, Discover L.O.L.A has a great selection of some of this summer’s hottest and trendiest clothes and accessories. If you are looking for cute, quality, boutique style pieces that not every other girl is going to have, Discover L.O.L.A has you covered! Some other pieces that I am loving are this midi dress, this off the shoulder dress, and this embroidered romper. So make sure to check them out!
