Going Green


Hey Babes! Fall is a favorite time of year for me.  I loved the whole going back to school and being excited for football and caramel apples, burning leaves, pulling out sweaters and getting a few new pieces when I was young and I still do. But fall in South Texas means a whole other thing!  I’m not in the midwest anymore! It can be summer for a few days then a day of fall and then back to summer!  So when I saw this green velvet kimono I thought it would make a great transitional piece.  I love this shade of green and think it will work for the holidays too.


Wishing y’all a fabulous fall wherever you are.  I hope your days are full of all the wonder fall has to offer.  As always, thank you for stopping by.






After a bumpy boat ride from Capri to Naples, we got in a taxi that took us to the Naples train station.  Once we figured out how to buy our tickets, we were off! We enjoyed a relaxing train ride into Rome. Traveling this way you do have to carry your own luggage and I have learned (the hard way) to pack much lighter next time! The streets of Rome were very crowded with Romans and tourists! After going to our hotel, which I will not mention due to a very bad experience, we dropped off our luggage and set out to enjoy every bit of Rome we could.  Since we had both been before, we decided to take some side streets and explore. We enjoyed a lovely lunch and on every corner we saw beautiful architecture and breathtaking beauty.  Rome is a city that is such a mix of old and new.  It is a true melting pot of people too! The high end stores are there as well as darling little mom and pop shops. After having a delicious and much bigger lunch than normal we decided to skip dinner and go see the Trevi Fountain at night!  Of course it began to pour, but just as we approached the fountain, the rain slowed down a bit and I have to say to see the fountain at night and in the rain was beyond magical. A couple got engaged and the entire crowd cheered. Just so much fun!  It was a fabulous way to end our Italian holiday.

I hope you enjoyed coming along. As always, thank you so much for stopping by.  Feel free to leave comments and questions.  It is such a treat to hear from you.
