Poncho (similar) // Shoes (similar) //Jeans // Clutch // Hat // Necklace

Can you tell we danced in the rain a bit getting these pictures in?! My hat is proof of it! A cold front blew through Houston and I immediately pulled out this cute poncho that is more like a blanket because it is so soft! All I did was throw on a casual black top and jeans and let the poncho do the talking for this outfit. I dressed the outfit up¬†a bit more with a winter hat, booties and accessories. I picked up these cute, gold bracelets at the Houston Nutcracker Market and have been wearing them on repeat since they literally go with everything! As always (or so¬†my blog would tell)¬†maroon and winter hats are a season favorite of mine that keep popping up in my attire. You know it’s bad when you have to tell yourself you aren’t allowed to wear hats with every single outfit.¬†Oops! Every other one is totally acceptable though right? ūüėČ

Happy Christmas week and enjoy your weekend!

You better BELIZE it.

A couple of weeks ago I was able to travel to Belize for the second time and it did not disappoint. It was amazing to get away from the busy pace of life and just relax on the beach. To be phoneless and out of touch with reality for the week was such a breath of fresh air but is also why I only got 4 pictures while I was there.

¬†We stayed on Ambergris Caye, an island off of the mainland. There is a quaint, adventurous feeling about the island. Everything about Belize screams beauty. Not your 5 star, all inclusive, breath-taking view kind of beautiful but something a little different. At first sight Belize looks run down, poor, and ugly. The waters near the beach were murky from the storms and seaweed, but further out the waters were crystal blue and beautiful. That didn’t bother me much because¬†there is just something amazing about waking up with the beach 15 feet from your front door step, being able to enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the waves crash, and finding adventure in exploring the winding beaches. Living simply for the week is what I enjoyed most. Belize is known for being the second best dive spot in the nation. Unfortunately I have bad ears and can never go scuba diving, but it did not stop me from enjoying the beautiful blue waters and dipping my toes in the sea!

My favorite part of the trip was our fishing trip. We took a boat out, caught lots of snapper (yes they are itty bitty but I was SO proud nonetheless), and then our captain took us to a small island and cooked us lunch full of smoked fish¬†and ceviche. BEST CEVICHE EVER (I wish I had a picture to share because the colors were out of this world). I can promise you now that there will definitely be some ceviche coming to a blog near you in the near future ūüôā While there we met a group of locals that we spent a lot of time with. This group came from all over the world, most being from Texas and Florida to retire. They gave us recommendations for food and other activities that were not “touristy”. We enjoyed lots of mojitos, ceviche, and lobster. The best places to go to on vacation are always the ones that the locals recommend. If you don’t normally ask for the locals’ advice when you are on vacation, you are missing out! If any of you are traveling to Belize and need recommendations I would be glad to share where we stayed and ate any meals!

A little bit of Fringe.

Fringe sweater, ripped jeans, heelsimage

Sweater: Adam Lippes // Jeans: Target ($18!) // Heels(similar): Nine West // Hat(similar): J Crew // Earrings: Kendra Scott

Maybe I am biased because I am an Aggie or maybe it is my obsession with red wine, but maroon will forever be my favorite go-to color. I would say that is the case for the fall but that would be a lie since I wear it all year round! This outfit is perfect for the cool weather. Down here in Houston the weather hasn’t made it’s mind up about the impending winter weather so it makes for some tricky outfit choices. This sweater is a statement piece in itself so there is really no need to dress it up. All I had to do was stick some colored pumps and earrings on and let the sweater do the talking! The good thing about this sweater is that once it gets colder all you have to do is stick a sweater or long sleeve top under it.

I hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend! I will do a post soon with all of my black Friday finds and would love to hear from you about yours as well!
