Summer Wardrobe

Living in Texas requires careful thought to your summer wardrobe.  It isn’t always about fashion, it’s often about survival.  When the temperature reaches 110 degrees, you want to have on something that will let your body breathe! I’ve held on to a few goodies from previous seasons, including an olive shirt dress.  I’m so glad … Continue reading

Hair Routine #4

The Hunger Games
