Hey! So glad you stumbled upon my blog! I'm Michelle, a California girl who settled down in Texas with my family of five. I'm looking forward to sharing my experiences in fashion, food, travel and parenthood with you.

Now that we've got that out of the way, can we talk about spring? Here in Texas, it kinda sucks, TBH. It's forty degrees one minute and eighty the next, and I don't know if I should leave the house in a parka or a trench coat or shorts and flip flops. Lord help me.
With that said, I've been trying out a few items over the last few weeks in hopes of finding a bit of a transitional "uniform." Below is a list of my three favorite accessories that I will be wearing on repeat before and into the spring season.
Kimonos are great because of their versatility. Heavier versions like satin or velvet are a great substitute for a more traditional jacket when it's still a little chilly out. If it's warmer, you can go with a chiffon or lace version to add some cover without weight. Here are a few of my favorites:
I love rose-colored sunglasses because they're not super dark, but they give just enough shade to protect against the spotty sun rays that poke through the clouds. Also, it might just be me, but they make me feel a little happier on gray days. I'm loving big square frames and reflective cat-eye styles right now:
Or is it "shoeties?" Either way, I feel like an asshole saying this word. However, these things are my favorite new footwear trend. They provide enough coverage to keep your feet warmer in the mornings, but enough ventilation so that they're not too hot later in the day. The key with these is to find a pair that has either plenty of perforations or some big cut-outs so that they're not too warm. Here are my favorite pairs right now:
