Is there a glamourous event coming up on your social calendar? Feeling bold? I saw this killer cocktail dress and I couldn't resist sharing it on this page. And I am thrilled to see more elegant and strappy shoes that don't come with sky-high heels. Question... Is this a look you could see yourself wearing or not? How do you handle dressing up for special events? It would be great to see some of your favorite dress-up looks. Please share here if you like. ~ Cathy

Ready to have a great weekend? I know I am and after a tough week, I look to comfort while giving a nod to style. Maxi dresses have been my go-to option for such situations for ages. This one looks super cool, while being a bit more polished and offering more coverage than the usual maxi. I like paring them with dressed up thong like these from Tommy Bahama. ~ Cathy

I always feel that once Labor Day has come and gone the social season really gears up. Many more parties, charity events, and of course the art and music scene gets into full swing about this time of year. Green is going to be a huge color in many ensembles this fall. I came across this gorgeous frock and could instantly see myself swishing into the theater or symphony event with a pair of fabulous black dressy sandals. Are you looking forward to dressing up more this fall? ~ Cathy

Ready for some football? I've become a college sports fan in the last couple of years and always enjoy attending events. A sudden change in the weather caught me without a wrap so I ducked into a local shop and added this sweater to my wardrobe. Here's hoping your fave team wins this weekend! ~ Pat
We featured lots of crisp cool white outfits this season, including this embroidered top and white jeans. But now that Labor Day has come and gone, do you follow the old fashion rule of putting away your white pants until next summer? Or wear them proudly all fall and winter? We want to know! ~ Pat
Is it really the official end of summer? No!!! Here in Houston, we will be shaking and baking in 90+ temps for many weeks. But even in subtropical climes, one still cast an eye toward packing up the super summery looks and transitioning into a bit more structured apparel in early September . Until then, this boho inspired maxi is a weekend wonder. It could go from a beach party to a patio dinner with equal flair. These sandals would be so cool with the dress for a fabulous Labor Day event. ~ Cathy

So here in Houston we are still in the throes of a very hot summer. On that note, we have been showcasing a number of white dress options, and I just came across this winner. It really caught my eye as I am a sucker for crochet dresses. This one features a black underlay and a removable collar. It looks very crisp, fresh and inviting. Wouldn't these black patent Tory Burch flat sandals polish it off nicely? ~ Cathy

That's what we thought! But in the fashion world, mid August means the start of Fall Fashion Season. Pat Boland and I took in our first show that was put on at Tootsies by the women's networking group Ellevate. Gorgeous outfits from various designers were worn by stunning models.Designers included: #rebeccataylor #milly #Dianevonfurstenberg #normakamali #blackhalo
Choosing an outfit to wear to any fashion show is always a bit challenging. You want to look current and stylish but summery dresses don't seem quite right for such an event. Pat and I both ended up wearing fitted black pants with flowey blouses and strappy black heels as we mentally shoped for new fall ensembles. ~ Cathy

As much as summer sucks in Houston (the heat?!), I do love the fact I get to wear all my summer dresses :) Have some fun with prints & keep them semi fitted because we all know we'll sweat! ~ Andrea.
I often like wearing this flowy type of dress for fun summer events. It is easy to throw over my head and with the addition of a great sandal, I feel ready to head out to a festive outing. Dresses are my personal favorite ensemble as they require such little effort. Are you a fan of dresses too? ~ Cathy.

In continuing our white-on-white theme, I opted for comfy jeans from Chico's and an embroidered top from Nordstrom. I added some brown sandals, my new blue fringe purse, and favorite Kendra Scott earrings. This outfit kept me cool for a casual summer dinner with friends! ~ Pat.

What to wear to make a subtle but elegant statement? This pink dress with a nice cut would work so nicely for a daytime wedding paired with strappy gold sandals and lightweight dangly earrings. It's time to toast! ~ Cathy.

Is it blistering hot where you live? Here in Houston, with the arrival of summer this week, we are watching the thermostat go up, up, up. So what's a gal to do to look cool and polished for summer festivities? I vote for this white shift with black piping. And paired with these strappy heels, I think this would make for a very head-turning look. ~ Cathy.

Throw on a sundress and add a light sweater for warmth or modesty. Sandals are a must, and cool sunglasses are required. A chunky watch and some fun jewelry complete the look. Grab a friend or two and go shopping or have brunch - enjoy! ~ Pat.
With Memorial Day's arrival, comes the official time to break out the summer shoes. I found these beauties in a recent online shopping spree. These statement shoes has such style that I can't wait to wear each one! ~ Cathy.

It's the season for graduations, weddings and celebrations of all kinds. I absolutely love this gorgeous and feminine dress. And check out these sassy t-strap shoes. How perfect would this be for most any dress up occasion?

How do you usually dress on Fridays? Do you have a buttoned up type of office environment or can you just go the casual route? I found this dress while scrolling on a website lately and can see it working for all sorts of occasions. From a casual work setting to a day of shopping or having lunch with friends. I would pair it with some Stan Smith sneakers or a brown sandal with a chunky heel like these here. What do you think? ~ Cathy.

If you are like me, you have an assortment of fun sandals for virtually every occasion. We all have our favorites and go-to choices, right? But every now and then, it is really cool to just go out on a limb and pick a wild looking pair. These Sam Edelman's caught my eye and when I learned that they were inspired from the Jenny character in Forrest Gump, well, how could I resist! ~ Cathy.

If I was going to a party and could only buy one new thing, it would definitely be shoes! I love them so much and after a few meh seasons, I am seeing many awesome pairs at virtually every store, including many in suede. (Yes, suede can work beyond winter) I have been looking for some new sandals for an upcoming trip and came across these. What do you think? Winners? ~ Cathy.

A quick peek at the calendar shows us that Easter is right around the corner! It's early this year so better start looking for just the right Easter outfit. I found this very appealing and fresh take on a white dress. I like the way these funky fringed sandals keep it from looking too sweet. Is this a hit? ~ Cathy.
While fall is knocking on our doors, I am still not ready to let go on the prettiest frocks of summer. This little number has been calling my name. Mucho flattering and with these peep toe cuties, I am reminded of attire from a vintage Italian movie. La Dolce Vita perhaps? Does it speak to you too? ~ Cathy.
Well, technically... I fell in love with this flowy maxi dress. Paired with my favorite flat sandals and a layered necklace and this Labor Day weekend look is going to be just right! What are you doing this holiday weekend? ~ Cathy.
Here is Andrea out & about on a hot & humid Houston summer's day. This dress is a great option for the weather because it is not too fitted & the cerise pink color is perfect for this time of year. She finished it off with a simple necklace, bracelet & metallic silver sandals.
I am a sucker for black and white dresses. If you were to look in my closet, you would see more of this color scheme than any other. In recent months, I have made an effort to branch out and I have incorporated bunches of florals into my wardrobe. I love them, but I must confess my go-to look is a black and white dress, just like this one. I keep coming across the ModCloth line and here is one I definitely love. The sandals are exactly what I would choose for this look. How about you? What are your favorite colors to wear? ~ Cathy.
