Hurricane Harvey | hunkering down

August 26, 2017

What a dramatic start to the weekend….I began writing this post at 4 am, just a few hours after Hurricane Harvey made landfall in South Texas. Major storms outside my window and anxieties over what was going to happen to Houston. We watched this storm chaser’s live feed and I’m sick about how devastating it’s impact was to Rockport and surrounding locations. This is biggest storm (by wind) to hit Texas since 1961 and the strongest in the U.S. (by wind) since Hurricane Charley hit in Southwest Florida in 2004. Pretty tough stuff.

We contemplated evacuating, but decided to hunker down for now. Those of y’all who haven’t grown up around hurricanes (myself included) are probably thinking we are insane and I go back and forth on whether or not I agree with you. Ha! At this point I’m praying that we just get a lot of rain and are spared any major flooding and power outages. Stuck indoors with all of the Double Stuffed Oreos, emoji Uno and red wine and queso until this storm subsides. It will certainly be interesting over these next 4 days….


Hopefully, I’ll have some time (power permitting) to catch up on some blogging. And also packing for my next trip out of Dodge. Fingers crossed the weather is over by next week so I can slip over to Charleston for a quick weekend to celebrate my friend’s 40th birthday. I’m definitely packing this this Ulla Johnson skirt and one shoulder top. I absolutely love this fall floral print and plan to wear this matching top and skirt both together and separately; the top with flare pants and these heels for dinner at F.I.G. and the skirt with a tee and flats during Saturday strolls over to brunch and Hamden Clothing. I’m seeing lots of one shoulder tops this fall and think it’s Check out Ulla Johnson’s collection here with the most recent fall designs and an array of black slides. This gorgeous Ulla Johnson pattern also comes in a dress and long sleeve blouse.


Have ave you seen Cult Gaia‘s latest collection? It’s pretty fantastic and a great way to pop even the most basic outfit with some fun color.
