Rainy Houston Weather.

I swear it has been raining all 5 months of this year non stop. I was going to buy a rain coat and hunter boots but I told myself (because it's historically accurate) if I purchase both it will never rain again. So here I am, 5 months later tired of using regular jackets as rain jackets and having wet feet. I think its time for me to give in. I'm so picky but its literally items that will be used repeatedly over time, and I will be happy I have them. Im looking for a classic hooded trench, so hopefully I find one for a reasonable price.
I put together this little mood board of items that I think are great for rainy days!
This morning it was storming and we were under a tornado warning, fences and lots of trees around me were broken. Luckily we didn't get any damage to our house or cars, but it is still scheduled to rain for the rest of next week! I think it rains every Memorial Weekend.

Rainy Day Essentials.

Kodaline, Closer with Skype

I have been working with Skype and Kodaline lately! Skype has a series called "ones to watch." Kodaline is on their list and actually came to Houston for a show at the House of Blues. I had tickets but wasn't able to go :( They are from Ireland and have an indie/alternative/ folk sound.

Check them out here:

You can check them out and other up and coming artists on http://onestowatch.com/.

This post was originally on Jayswag.com, check out Mara Monday's every other Monday on their site! I can't wait to visit them in California :)

Weekend Wrap-up | Construction Begins

Happy Sunday, it's time for a small weekend wrap-up:

I posted earlier on the Calvin Klein Curator collection that I viewed at Taylor & Taylor Designs.

I randomly got featured on Nylon Magazines Instagram. I got a notification that they took a photo of me and when I clicked it, there I was. Its weird that they basically stole my photo but thats just a true test of the Instagram privacy policy. Its cool for the random exposure!

I went to the Bevello opening in Rice Village. Honestly I was a little disappointed but the service with it being a new store and I was basically the only person there that wasn't working or a part of the Braid Bar. I grabbed a brownie and was confused because I thought more bloggers would be there. The event started at around 5 but I arrived around 6:40 due to getting off work at 6 and traffic being awful. The store is cute but the offerings are the same as our fashion stores at our Golden Nuggets (If you didn't know I work in apparel buying for them) LOL. Its cute, I appreciated the invite. The braid bar people get major claps and snaps for giving me a cute side braid even though my hair was way too poofy for public viewing.

Its been raining in Houston for like 30 days straight. I honestly can't remember the last time I washed my car. So the area where I grew up and where my parents live totes flooded, totaled my dad car... crazy. I didn't think it was raining that bad but it has been consistent and the construction has messed up the roads so bad... it has not been fun. Maybe I should hurry and start my herb garden!

The work week ended with Pitch Perfect! There is a cute shopping center called Vintage Park that is nestled in the wood that I never new about. Its only about 10 miles from my house so I am thinking about visiting next weekend! I only stopped by Alamo Draft House, which was awesome, and pitch perfect was pretty funny.
