Color Crush: Purple & Red

Our Mountain Laurel tree has the most amazing purple blooms right now, and paired with the red hummingbird feeder, I can't get enough! I've always loved red and purple together, but lately I've been finding more ways to incorporate them into my outfits and around the house. Here's to a happy and colorful SPRING!!
{Pearl at the SAMA Matisse Exhibit--One of my favorite artists who uses bold colors, especially in his Nice years}
A purple mohair chair in our family room that was my husband's great aunt's, with various shades of red in the rug, art, and bookshelves. I love all the greens mixed in from outside and in the Manuel Canovas chinoiserie pillows.
Wearing one of my favorite print scarves on a hike in Jackson Hole with Annie-- It's great to travel with, because it goes with so many different basics like black, white and denim (and hides stains so well, ha!)
{Jackie Kennedy in a classic sundress}
In our bedroom, the antique screen has all different shades of purple, and we painted the walls Sherwin Williams White Lilac
It's such a soothing shade for a bedroom! 
I found this fabric from India to make a "skirt" for my sewing table to conceal the mess of cords and printer underneath. Block prints are a great way to add just a touch, or a big dose of color! Mela & Roam is my go-to inspiration source for block prints--make sure to check her out if you're in Round Top!!
{Our mouse pad with all the shades I love!}
{Henri Matisse, 1910}
Lela in a Pink Chicken dress, with turquoise and pink vintage bead necklaces. This girl knows how to layer!!
Leap is a boutique in Houston that's unfortunately no longer in business, but I still love this crusty old red table with hints of purple. 
{Beaded Megan Park Jacket}
Mercedes Salazar--LOVE her accessories!
In the younger kids' room, this vintage headboard with pinks, green, and purple was the jumping off point for their color scheme. The quilts are from Pottery Barn, the colorful throws from Target, and I made the pillows from vintage silk fabric. Kid's rooms are the perfect place to experiment with color and pattern!!
When there's A LOT of different colors going on, I like to add neutrals into the mix wherever I can :)
I found the set of PB bunk beds for a steal ($150!) and they were already painted gold, so I toned it down with plain white sheets, and these fun polka dot pillow cases and sheets

A Kelly Wearstler Vibe Tray--I just listened to a great interview with her titled Color As Her Muse
 La Double J, a Milanese brand that sells the MOST amazing selection of vintage and new dresses--one of my favorite IG accounts to follow!!
Getting ready for Fiesta with a Nativa Hand Towel (from the FAB Hotel Emma gift shop Curio) in our powder bathroom with the best smelling lavender hand soap!
This feathered friend sits on top of our bookshelf in the family room, which is always evolving with books and photos. Rearranging bookshelves gives me instant gratification- also a great place to play around with color!
I love this purple and red mix, with a dose of black, from Canary in Dallas- Antik Batik Block Print Top, Sans Arcidet Raffia Bag--their Instagram account always has an inspiring color palette. 
{Raoul Dufy, La Vie en Rose}
Jeffrey Billhuber is another interior designer who mixes colors fearlessly--how fun are these lacquered ceilings?!?
 I was lucky enough to catch the Oscar de la Renta exhibit at MFAH last week, and the fabrics were EXQUISITE. It was honestly hard to tell what year he designed each piece, whether it was with Balenciaga in the 1950's, a caftan in the '80s, or a red carpet dress in 2008. It was a nice reminder that prints and colors are timeless!!
Gardens were a big inspiration for his designs, especially his homes in Kent, CT and the Dominican Republic that were so full of color. 
I just watched DRIES on Netflix, another designer I admire so much for his use of color and prints, and his gardens and home in Belgium are worth watching the entire film for!! 
Happy Spring!! xoxo

Happy Rodeo Season Y'all!

Rodeo season is in full swing, and as much as I LOVE going, it's one of the hardest occasions to dress for! Since it's only once a year, I just can't justify buying specific western attire. This time around, I added a few new accessories and basics that can be restyled all year long!
{Turquoise Earrings, Gap top, Botkier purse, and I stole the bandana from the kids and embroidered it with my initials!}
I love mixing camel, black, and denim (even black and white plaid!) with textures like leather and suede.
{SEA Denim Dress from Meadow, Gold Hoops from Penny Lane, DV Booties from LeeLee, and Clutch I made from Kuba Cloth}
I found my cowboy boots on sale at Cavender's under $100 a few seasons ago. You can find lots of affordable vintage boots on Etsy (how great are these black ones!) and did you know David's Bridal even sells boots for $49!? Topshop has a high and low cowboy bootie, or you can opt for fun fringed mocassins. Uwezo makes cowhide boots and sells them AT the Rodeo! 
Flowy, embroidered tops that aren't necessarily in season, work well with denim and boots. I like to pile on my horn bangles and earrings... 
{Pintucked top, white jeans, cowboy boots}
 This English Factory Lace Blouse (on sale!) would be ideal for the Rodeo with dark denim, and then with nude slides and a straw purse this spring like above! 
See what dresses you already have (and haven't worn in awhile), then cut them off and tuck into jeans!
I had this button-down dress similar to the one above that was an awkward length after I washed it, but it makes a great button-down top! 
If your style is more minimal like Anine Bing, wear your black raw-edge jeans with a red top and mix in some rodeo-friendly accessories!
{H&M top (I love their shade of red), Gap ankle boots, vintage belt, St. Signora Necklace, Target cuff, thin gold bracelet}
A floral/paisley print is another fun option...I just ordered this Tie Frill Dress from And Other Stories (such great dresses under $100!) that can be dressed up or down with cowboy boots or mules and espadrilles this summer.

Lines like Ulla JohnsonFree People, and SEA have prints and details that translate well for Rodeo. This navy and pink ruffle blouse would be so cute with high-waisted jeans and cowboy boots! 
{Loft top-with the sleeves pushed up to create a flared sleeve-Banana Republic leather clutch and Lela's hat :)}
Classics like chambray, black, and white button-down tops paired with jeans and a statement necklace or a fun clutch is the easiest way to go! 
My mom just found this gorgeous leather and turquoise necklace at The Guild Shop in Houston-- they're always stocked for Rodeo season!

I love classics with a twist like this white button-down with eyelet embroidery, or a black lace blouse with raw edge hem. 
Last weekend, I wore my turquoise earrings with a black lace top and dark jeans. (I always mix black and brown, but especially for the rodeo!) 
I got P's Kate Spade top at Nordstrom Rack a few years ago (regretting not getting the dress too) and it's lasted two rodeo seasons! 
Lela in her pink cowboy boots that she wears all day, everyday! 
P at the same age! She lived in her Moccasin boots, which are great for jeans and dresses. 
Minnetonka also makes adult sizes, but I found a tassel version by Soludos that I love!
Annie in a precious vintage dress that my SIL gave her. I love embroidered pieces for my girls, especially when they're a steal like this Zara one
We got these matching plaid dresses in Jackson Hole this summer, which is also a great time to find everything on sale! xoxo
