Tips To Wearing Bright Orange

I was so excited when I found a bright orange top to wear for the summer! My wardrobe colors change depending on the season. Since it is summer I tend to try to wear brighter colors. Although, white is my default color that I wear all year round.

I realize orange is not everyone’s color and it can be difficult to pair it with other clothes. I actually like to wear bright colors because I have dark skin and it brightens up my skin.

Check out these tips!

Tips To Wearing Orange

  • Pair it with neutral colors like beige, cream, or white
  • Gold, yellow, browns, and blues tend to compliment orange well
  • You can wear the color orange by accessorizing in that color
  • The best way to wear orange is in small doses


I paired my shirt with some white skinny jeans and some gold heels. Take a look at the outfit below.

I love how gold looks with the color orange. As you can see in the picture there is a little gold on the top. I didn’t go crazy on accessories. I just added a simple gold bracelet. The back of the top is my favorite part about the blouse. Take a look below.

I like how it opens up in the back, but it is subtle. It’s not too much. The top is perfect to wear in the hot summer months.

The top is from Charming Charlie and the white skinny jeans are from New York & Company. The bracelet and shoes I had already. I hope these tips helped you. Don’t be afraid to try new colors. You never know, you might be surprised.

Trip To The Varner-Hogg Plantation

We recently took a trip to the Varner-Hogg Plantation which is in West Columbia, Tx. This is about an hour away, South West from Downtown Houston. To be honest, we didn’t know what to expect because the 6 years that we have lived in Houston, we have never heard of the place. I highly recommend this trip for a family trip, or for an educational experience. This plantation is filled with history that is truly fascinating!

Our Trip To Varner-Hogg Plantation

You will be greeted with nice staff in the visitor center where the gift shop is located. That’s where you will start the tour.  They do have self-guided and guided tours. The entrance fee is minimal. Plan to spend up to 2 hours there. The plantation is surrounded by beautiful Pecan trees on a 65.66 acre lot, which features a refurbished Greek Revival plantation house built in 1835.

If you are a history buff or you just love to learn new things then this if for you and your family.

Tips To Consider

  • You can bring your own picnic. They have a designated picnic area.
  • You must ride their bikes! They are a lot of fun. They rent them out for 5 dollars an hour
  • Bring your camera. There are beautiful trees and cottages that you will want to capture on camera.
  • Recommended time to go is in the morning. It can get pretty hot during the afternoon especially in the summer. You will have to walk some.
  • Bring mosquito repellent and a first aid kit. You will have to walk off the path into the grass to see some exhibits.

You can now rent cottages! Check out their website for more information. If you know someone who is engaged or they want to renew their vows, they do have weddings and anniversaries on the property.

We had an awesome time learning about the history of this plantation. It was both educational and fun! I highly recommend this place.

Why A Denim Jacket Is Perfect For Springtime

I’ve had my denim jacket for too many years to count. Denim is really timeless. I can’t see it ever going out of style completely. It’s kind of always made a comeback around. My go to item is my denim jacket especially during the Spring. The weather has been really weird here in south Texas. It’s warm on some days and it’s a little cool on other days, or it’s raining. I think most places are like that. It’s just that I’m so used to it being warm on most days in Texas. That’s why it’s good to have a jacket handy because you never know how the weather is going to be.
