Down on Market Street

Pants: Target, Shoes:Target, Shirt: Old Navy, Ring: Francesca's

Happy Saturday! I have to give a quick shout out to a great friend of mine, Thank you Sandrine for these amazing pictures and for taking time out of your Friday night to take them! You're the best!

SO let me start off by talking about these pants. I love them first of all, but I can't help to think of pajama pants when I wear them. They are seriously so comfy, flowy and loose which, again reminds me of my favorite p.j's! However after I put my model heels on and added some accessories I felt like it was a real outfit. 


Feeling Frenchy

Dress: gifted, Blazer: Langford Market, Earrings: Francesca's

When my mom came to visit (this is some time ago now) she surprised me with some bright, hot-pink pants and this lovely dress. It's so pretty. The floral eyelet fabric over the mint blue color is so elegant. Mint and coral are perfect together, so I matched this dress with my favorite earrings from Francesca's (which I seriously LOVE) and added my pearls. The stripe blazer just brings everything together. Sophistication all wrapped into one outfit. I felt like this outfit was worthy to roam the streets of Paris. On a side note, it is almost the 4th of July and I have nothing prepared for it! The Hubs gets a few days off so I feel like we have to fill it with lots of fun activities. I hope you all have a great 4th!

You can never go wrong with color and stripes! Plus this necklace and man you've got it made! I hope you are having a great Tuesday! 


Gone Camping

Shirt: J. Crew, Shoes: Payless, Necklace: Burlington Coat Factory (simular)

This past week I went to a young women's girls camp, but before I left I decided I needed to make things a little interesting. As I was preparing my sack lunch for the day of, I sliced into an avocado to get the seed out. It was a stubborn seed, so I gabbed it with my knife, missed the seed and stabbed my hand instead. Ha ha thinking about it now I just have to laugh. That is about how silly I get! Anyways my hand is fine, I didn't need stitches and I made it through the week of girls camp just fine. GC was a blast, we were hot and sweaty all week but there was a lake near by that we went canoeing in and a pool up the hill from our camp sight. I stuffed myself with junk food the whole time thinking I would sweat it out anyway! Ha ha I have a lot of great pictures of us,  un-showered, sweaty, no makeup girls that just make me smile. Good memories!


Preppy Blues

Shirt: Target, Shorts: Old Navy, Belt and Earrings: Target

I've been spending the last two days getting ready to go camping with the young women in my church. We leave tomorrow morning and I have to say, I am pretty dang excited! The only thing I am not looking forward to is sweating all day, non stop. ha ha it's going to be AWESOME! 

I love the two tone color trend. I love red and pink together but I think mint and navy blue is my all time favorite. Easy, peasy to acheazy(achieve) -ha ha yep that just happened! I hope you like it, I know I do!  



Dress: ECI New York (via Ross) Necklace: Tj Maxx, Bracelet: Charming Charlie, Earrings: Target

This is my WILD dress. Something that I have been wanting for a while. It's colorful, has awesome mixed print, and fits beautifully. I love the two vertical lines going down the center because it creates an allusion of being smaller and taller! This was my birthday dinner outfit. The Hubs took me out to a delicious sushi dinner and then some light shopping. I was supposed to only look but I found a shirt at J. Crew (one of my very favorite stores) that was on sale and it just wanted to come home with me. So I took it home (after I bought it of course!) I can't wait to style it! I bet you'll love it as well! If you follow me on Instagram (@price4love) I gave you a sneak peek earlier. To finish off the night we shared an ice cream cone and came home to watch one of our favorite shows, Master Chef. Seriously, one of the BEST food contest shows out there! (Look for it on Hulu I promise you'll be hooked!) It was a perfect night, perfect birthday week (because I think we are all special enough to have a whole week devoted to ourselves, not just a day!)


Fashion LOVE


found at Tj Maxx

So I figured out my problem (well one of many at least) and it is this: I flat out LOVE fashion. I love it. I don't know how else to explain it other than the giddy feeling you would get when you were a child on Christmas morning. You know, the excitement, the joy and the rush of all the possibilities. That’s exactly how I feel towards fashion. I love seeing all these fashion blogs with new outfit ideas. I love opening my e-mail to see that Madewell, Anthropologie or TJ Maxx etc. has e-mailed me some of their latest and greatest. (Which is a great way to stay in touch with your favorite stores, so you know exactly what they have and when they have it. Also great for when things go on sale!) I love the potential of putting great clothing pieces together and making an AMAZING outfit. That to me is just plane enjoyment! And come on, after seeing the photos above aren't you a little more inspired, and doesn't that make you excited!? Some may say I'm obsessed but that’s ok with me I'll take that.

Ok let me just talk a little about a few of these items. The knit cover-up pants are super hot (as in amazing) for pool/beach days. It is a sophisticated way to stay cool and still look chic while in your bathing suit. It's also very European, which they have had this poolside attire figured out for a while now-jewelry, high heel wedge, sassy cover-ups and hats to match. 

Print shorts/pants are still a big hit. They bring so much spunk to an outfit. You can do a mix and match print by adding a print top or keep your top neutral. Although I love these vertical stripe pants I personally could not pull them off. Some print pants where not made for the masses, but that’s ok, while one print may not work for you another will look perfect! One huge thing to keep in mind while shopping for print pants is the fit or cut. It makes a huge difference if they are tailored or loose fitting etc.

Color full accessories make an outfit really shine. I have talked about accessories before but seriously they finish off the good outfit and make it great!


Love Summer

Shirt: Madewell, Shorts: Target, Shoes: Target (simular), Awesome Necklace: TJ Maxx.

The temperature is rising and it is getting pretty dang humid over here in good Ole' Texas. I love the summer time and all that it includes. However having thick hair that is ever growing (which I love, don’t get me wrong) I feel like I am constantly sweating. Today I went around just thinking, man it would be so easy to pull a Pedro and shave all my hair off (Napoleon Dynamite-if you didn't understand the reference). Seriously I felt like I was sinking in a pool of sweaty hair! Ha ha sorry that sounds pretty gross. And don't even get me started on the issue of drying my hair after showering. That takes years! (Exaggeration much) So after literally ten minutes of walking around with my hair down, I decided it was just a "hair in a bun on the top of my head" kind of day. And let me tell you I felt like a new woman! Ha 

Ok this shirt! I found this at Madewell a few weeks ago now on SALE! I love Madewell but man; the prices are not my friends. But sales, sales are always good for your pocket and your piece of mind. So my crabby/lobster shirt and me have a pretty dang good relationship, if I do say so myself. 
When I tie my shirts on the side and wear jeans The Hubs lets me know I look like an "80's grandma" (his words, not mine) When I tied my shirt for the first time-that he notice anyway- I was wearing a sweater that has little neon flecks of color in it, so I can see how that looks a little 80's but I have no clue where the grandma part is coming from...... Maybe because moms in the 80's are now hitting Grandma years? I don't know either way I just look at him and smile, give him a big kiss and remind him that this is my style blog Ha ha! He sure loves me. Maybe not all my personal style choices but me, definitely! So I like the tied to the side shirt and these fringe pants. To me it just looks easygoing and very Madewell-ish. I also really like the T-shirt/big awesome necklace combo. It brings a little more interest to the outfit. And this collar necklace is just flat out AWSOME! I love finding great pieces at TJ Maxx. Anyway this is my outfit, a little bit of my life and a whole lot of love for fashion! Have a great day!


Sweaters in Summer

Outfit from Target!

Sometimes, when you live in Houston- in the dead of Summer, you wear a sweater. It's for fun! Ha ha ok I know this sounds silly but sweaters are totally in for the summer. Especially these knit cord sweaters. Now I know it is flippin' hot outside- why would you want to wear a sweater? But guys, it breaths so well and if it's an oversized one like this, you aren't trapping in all the heat. Now to complete the sweater look just pair it with shorts and some sandals. I personally love the metallic sandals you see all over. I really want some, big time! I think they would complete the sweater/short outfit perfectly.  But for now I just went with my sandals from Target which I love. It still gives the outfit the same laid back feeling. Which the sweater/ short combo just makes me feel like I need to be at the beach. Gap has been the leader, in my opinion, in showing off this trend, so check them out by clicking here. Or you can also check out Loft and Ann Taylor. They have a cute selection of cable knit sweaters as well. I am sure you could find these types of sweaters at any department store, but these three is where I would start! 




Shirt: Target, Skirt: Old Navy, Bag: Langford Market, Earrings: Charming Charlie

This outfit was a little more on the edgy side for me, but I still like it. I found this shirt at Target this past weekend and fell in love with it. It  a sheer, zip up, draw string cutie! I thought that this would go great with my stripe skirt that I found at Old Navy (although this shirt is really going to get a lot of wear this summer and even into fall) and then to keep up with the edgy feel I threw on my AWESOME booties I found last fall at Target. Being me, (I can't go with out a little bling) I had to add a little feminine touch. I think the necklace and earrings give it the right amount of girlie vibe, while not distracting from the outfit. 
I have to say, I love stripes! They are definitely on the top of my list of favorite prints. Along with florals, leopard and anything bohemian. (It's unsure which takes the top spot) But the nice thing about stripes is that they are still going strong. They have been a top print for many seasons, and I don't see them going out very soon. 
If you are ever hesitant to buy stripe print clothing, just be aware of where they hit you (right across the biggest part of your body is no good) and they width of the stripe. The width of the stripe I am wearing is pretty safe for everyone, but if you carry most of your weight on your bottom half, opt for a stripe shirt. And if you are busty just make sure the stripe isn't pulling across your chest- you may have to go up a size or look for a smaller stripe. Illusions make all the difference.

Outfit: Target, Earrings: Charming Charlie

Chloe Girl! Isn't she so pretty!

Over the weekend The Hubs and I chaperoned (I would call it baby sitting but the girl is 10 and the boy is 16) two kids. I think we were mostly there to make sure everything went smoothly and to dog sit. It was a fun weekend, but I didn't have internet (with the exception of the 10 minute breaks I would take to check on our house and obviously get my fill of Instagram) If you follow me on IG (@price4love) you would have see that Chloe, The Hubs and I had a very full and fun weekend. (I know it sounds like I'm leaving the kids out of our weekend, but they had their own things to do and play.) Anyway the point is that, I now have internet and can post my outfits I wore over the weekend. By the way I hope you all had a great weekend! They never last long enough if you ask me! Happy Monday, It's almost over!
