The Neely and Chloe Airstream Tour

The new it girls have arrived, and they’ve brought handbags! Neely and Chloe, who? Burch, as in Tory. The creators of the Neely and Chloe are actually nieces of the fabulous, Tory Burch. Neely and Chloe features beautifully made handbags, shoes, and accessories.  The brand offers a variety of different handbags from leather to suede to canvas available in fun pops of color. Neely and Chloe also offers customization, including gold foil monogramming and ornaments, which can be added to any bag to truly make it your own.

Neely and Chloe sent me over the grey  suede Saddle Bag and I am absolutely obsessed with it! It’s the perfect size with an adjustable crossbody strap, which I, at 5’2, def appreciate. This is also a perfect bag to transition into the fall and winter months. I also added one of their leather tassels to my bag for a fun pop of color.

Click here to shop the Saddle bag, available in 3 different colors.


To kick off the launch of this new brand, Neely and Chloe hit the road in a vintage airstream turned pop up shop to promote the collection, so when they arrived in San Antonio at The Shops at La Cantera, I had to check it out. The adorable airstream included the entire collection along with the monogramming equipment and is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. They will be in between Grimaldi’s and Vera Bradley at The Shops at La Cantera today Saturday July 22 until 9pm.

Tropical Vibes

As we all know, I live in the great state of Texas. One thing that is not so great about it however, are the outrageously hot summers. We are well into the hottest season of the year and with no end in sight, even the thought of dressing up can send us into immediate heat stroke. The key to surviving Texas summers are selecting light, breathable clothing options (but obviously cute too!), which is why these wide leg pants from Free People + this super light tank = a win! I paired the trendy/functional outfit with a platform espadrille, and super fun (yet not practical) yellow lens aviators. I topped my look off layering a couple gold chokers and added a chevron print Gucci handbag to add an unexpected element to the already semi-whimsical look. Even though we’re in Texas, this look gave me total tropical vibes and transported me to the jungles of Tulum or the beaches of Miami.

How do you beat the Texas heat? What are some of your go to summer styles? Let me know in the comments below.

That Romper Tho!

Who doesn’t love a lightweight flowy romper tho? Honestly I’ve been all about simplicity this summer, especially since I now have a 3 month old pup who has completely taken over my morning routine.

Rompers and statement earrings have basically been my summer uniform. It’s the perfect look for the trendy girl on the go and I’m obsessed!

Gingham All Summer

Gingham has been one of the hottest trends of the season and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon! From tops, to skirts, to dresses, pants, and even swimsuits, gingham continues to be the perfect print to make a statement that takes your outfit to the next level. What’s cool about gingham is that it’s bold enough on it’s own but not too bold to mix and match with other prints and colors. I styled my bell sleeve gingham top with black skinny jeans and a statement sandal for a casual chic look. But a simple gingham top can go with pretty much anything. Gingham is a trend you’ll wear over and over this season. How do you feel about gingham and what’s your favorite way to wear it? Let me know in the comments below!

Inbalance Yoga Retreat Recap + Shop My Current Favorite Activewear

Okay so I know this post is long overdue but last month was a complete whirlwind for me. Between graduating college (YAY!) and transitioning into ‘official adulthood’, wedding planning, and the loss of my Grandmother, it was a complete rollercoaster and I took some much needed time off from blogging to process and adjust to all of these big changes in my life. After traveling a bit and spending time with friends and family I’m ready to jump back into my daily routine, which for now, includes creating blog and social media content and getting back into my workout routine at InBalance.

Last month Justin and I went on the InBalance yoga retreat to beautiful Tulum! It was a perfect location for the long peaceful, relaxing weekend. We stayed at the gorgeous Dreams Resort, which was right on the beach and had a luxurious spa, two pools, several bars and restaurants (all inclusive), and tons of fabulous activities and amenities. #inbalanceinmexico

While in Tulum, we also got the opportunity to go on excursions. Justin and I decided to visit the ancient ruins of Chichen Itza, which was absolutely incredible. It is a must see if you are ever in the area and was hands down one of the highlights of our trip.

When we weren’t hitting the beach, bar, or exploring the ancient ruins of Chichen Itza, we were up bright and early, with Hope and the InBalance squad taking yoga classes on the beach. If you ever have the opportunity to do yoga on the beach, do it! It was so peaceful to do yoga on a beach so early in the morning when the beach is practically empty and you can hear the sound of the ocean and feel the cool breeze. It makes holding those planks much more tolerable, trust. #namastayatthebeach

I’ve always had a love for yoga, but after this trip I’ve become much more determined to take as many yoga classes as I can to build up my strength and flexibility. I’ve taken yoga classes other places in the past, but the classes at InBalance are by far my favorite. The instructors are super helpful and not at all intimidating, which is nice for a semi-beginner, like myself. Since I’ve upped my yoga game over the past few weeks I definitely feel like I’ve gotten much more flexible (almost at a split, yall!) and have strengthened my core muscles immensely, which definitely comes in handy, when taking barre classes as well. InBalance has added several new classes and programs for the summer and even offers free community classes most weekends. Make sure to follow InBalance on Instagram and Facebook for updates, events, and to RSVP for the next yoga retreat!

    1. It was such a wonderful experience! InBalance has one every year, I’ll post about the next one we take and maybe you can join us 🙂

Coachella 2017 Recap + Video

Another Coachella has come and gone, and it was nothing short of amazing! As you all know I have such a deep love for this event. There’s just something so magical about being in this beautiful place surrounded by desert, mountains, palm trees, and incredible live music ( and about 20million people). It’s probably one of the only times in my life I don’t mind the massive crowds because the vibes are just so fun. Everyone is looking to have the time of their lives, and this is the place to make that happen.

For the second year in a row I stayed at the beautiful Safari tents at Coachella, which means my squad and I got to arrive at the festival grounds Thursday, before the festival even started. The hype was real. We were beyond excited to check in to our luxurious Safari tent and glamp it up. Don’t let the word ‘tent’ fool you. The Safari tents at Chella are spacious, air conditioned, fully furnished with two double beds, seating areas, full length mirrors, and a mini fridge. Better than a lot of hotels, actually. They also have community bathrooms, showers, and a sick lounge area where they have a live dj everyday, a full bar, and serve complimentary breakfast, snacks, and dinner. They even have comfy seating areas and a huge TV where they live stream all the performances at Coachella, you know, in case you came all the way to the festival but would rather watch it on a screen (HA!). Being a Safari guest means you also have access to a ton of perks like a 24/7 concierge service, complementary massages in the Spa Yurt and daily morning yoga classes, golf cart drivers to take us directly to each stage (and backstage), access to the VIP area, VIP Rose Garden, the even more exclusive Artist Lounge, and an up close viewing area at all the stages.

In addition to staying at the luxurious Safari campgrounds we also attended several Coachella parties over the weekend including the Young Turks party at the Palm Springs Air Museum. This event had live performances from Jamie XX, Four Tet, Sampha, and more. It took place in an hangar with historic aircrafts, which was such a unique experience. We also attended the Day Club pool party at the Hilton Palm Springs. This was our second time attending this party. It’s always such a good time with live Dj sets from big names such as Skrillex, and Dillon Fancis, vendors, such as L’Oreal, handing out free swag, and bars serving up cold drinks in a coconut (because everything tastes better from a coconut).

When we finally ventured out to the festival, it was just as amazing as I remembered. The festival grounds were even bigger this year than previous years with new art instillations, 100s of restaurants, bars, boutiques, and of course the many stages of Coachella. There were also a number of air conditioned sponsored tents, such as the Heineken tent, H&M tent, and my favorite, the Sephora tent, which offered complimentary makeup touch ups, flash tats, body gems, a fragrance bar, and a braid bar by Ouai haircare.

The ferris wheel is also a must at Coachella in order to get the full view of the festival grounds.  It got a little update this year too, with much needed air conditioning added to each cart. The view is totally worth the $10 ticket and waiting in line, trust me.

One of my favorite parts of Coachella is, of course, the outfits! I am obsessed with the fashion culture of Coachella and getting to dress up in these edgy, bohochic looks is reason enough to attend. It’s not everyday that you’ll find me in fringe, leather, and mesh with glitter in my hair (all at once), but it is 100% acceptable and very much expected at Chella. Coachella fashion has become such a culture of it’s own that the festival looks more like a runway for bloggers, celebrities, and fashionistas to showcase their #coachellastyle. It’s so interesting to see what everyone is wearing at the festival and is often reported on more than the actual performances. I’m not gonna lie, my friends and I had just as much fun getting dressed each day, putting so much thought and intention into every detail of our outfits, than we did at the concert, itself.

Let’s not forget the reason we all go to Coachella, the music! We were so lucky to be front row in the Artist Viewing area to see all of our favorite artists, including Lady Gaga, Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar, Father John Misty, Porter Robinson & Madeon, NAO, Dillon Francis, Galantis, Bon Iver, and Local Natives. Each performance was absolutely incredible. It’s very clear that the artists are just as excited to be there as the fans are, so the energy is just amazing.

Being in the Artist Lounge, meant we also were in the presence of all of the performers of Coachella, as well as the celebrities who attended. A few stars we encountered over the weekend included Lana Del Rey, Katy Perry, Kendall Jenner, Rihanna, G-Eazy, DJ Khalid, Porter Robinson, Shay Mitchell, Carmen Electra, NAV, Wiz Kahlifa, and Gigi Hadid #starstuck It’s so exciting to see these celebs up close in person, and most of them are so nice and love taking photos with fans.

If you followed me on Snapchat (@chicintheHOT) and Instagram (@chicintheheartoftexas) than you saw my stories and got a BTS experience of my epic weekend, but ICYMI, I created a flipgram highlighting some of my favorite moments that you can watch down below.

Until next year, Coachella!

Top 10 Coachella Trends 2017

It’s that time of the year again… COACHELLA! And I’ve got all the boho, gypsy, free spirit festival feels. This will be my second time attending the Coachella Music Festival, but before I pack my bags and head to Palm Springs, I’m sharing my 10 favorite trends that I’ll be wearing this year and where you can shop them. So even if you’re not going to ‘chella this year, you’ll definitely still want to wear these trends all season long. Trust.


1. Rompers

They make really it hard to go to the bathroom in but we don’t care because ROMPERS! SO CUTE! Honestly though, who doesn’t love a good romper? They’re cute, comfy and come in sooo many flattering colors and styles, which makes them the perfect option for dancing the night away in at Coachella!

Shop My Favorite Rompers Here



2. Fringe Jackets + Kimonos

Because Coachella and fringe literally go hand in hand, amirite? Kimonos are perfect for layering over a tank or bodysuit to add a little extra something to your look. And don’t forget to bring a jacket for those chilly desert nights! These fringe jackets are sure to give you major hippie vibes. Peace out.

3. Bodysuits + Bralettes

No need to fuss with the drama of tucking in a bulky top, just wear a bodysuit!  Bodysuits are key in achieving a slimming figure in those itty bitty shorts you’ll be wearing at Coachella. Will you feel like you’re wearing a swimsuit? Kinda. Will you have to take the whole thing off to go to the bathroom? Maybe (some bodysuits have snaps at the bottom, thank God) but again, who cares? You’ll look amazing pairing bodysuits with shorts, skirts, and pants. And obviously, you’ll want to layer a cute bralette under all your bodysuits and tops. Or pair one with high waisted shorts and throw on a kimono for a sexy festival look!

4. Denim

Denim is a must for Coachella. Whether its those itty bitty shorts, a trendy denim skirt, a jacket for those chilly nights, or an off the shoulder top or dress, you can never go wrong with denim. Embroidered denim is also a cool way to add some style to your basic denim look.

5. Black + Silver Ankle Boots

Okay so here’s the deal with footwear at Coachella. While cute strappy sandals or a nice white sneaker may seem like a great idea, it’s wayyyy too crowded and dusty for that, so unless you don’t mind getting stepped on, or your shoes/feet getting hella dirty, I’m going to suggest you go in another direction. ANKLE BOOTS! Black ankle boots have always been my favorite, because they literally go with everything! This year I’m loving my black ankle boots with silver hardware detailing because I think it gives them just the right amount of edge. Perfect for you ‘chella look!

6. Embroidered Hangbags

Can we just take a minute to appreciate the detail in these embroidered handbags right here? Embroidery has definitely been dominating the fashion world lately and has been seen on everything from denim shorts to leather jackets to shoes and obviously handbags. These eye catching handbags are perfect for dressing up any look and the floral detailing matches perfectly to your flower crown, honey. Slayy!

7. Colorful Sunnies

Colorful sunnies are the hottest trend in eyewear right now. Whether you like ’em big, small, round, cat eye, you’ll be sure to find them in colors that pop. These sunnies are such a fun way to add a little flair to your look this spring. Plus, the color blocked lenses are perfect to wear at night when you wanna look cute but would still like to see whee you’re going.

8. Unique Bandanas

The dust storms at Coachella are rough, yall. Bandanas are necessary if you’d like to continue to breathe throughout the weekend. I, personally am tired of the same old boring bandanas, they honestly remind me of the rodeo at this point, which is nice and all, but not my vibe for ‘chella. Instead I’m opting for some fun new patterns and even some designer bandana scarves to protect my little lungs from getting full of dust and dirt. OH, and to look cute too, obvs!

9. Chain Chokers + Layered Necklaces

I’m swapping out all my thick black and velvet chokers for these trendy chains which are perfect for the warmer seasons, and trust me it gets HOT in Palm Springs. What’s cool about these chain chokers is that they are so thin and dainty and can be layered to create a unique look and elongate your neckline. I’m also really loving the layered long chain look to wear with deep V tops, bodysuits, and even swimwear.

10. Fun Festival Accessories

Because where else am I going to wear flowers crowns, cat ears, and glitter in my hair? These festival accessories are a bit too wild and crazy for my everyday life but at Coachella, anything goes. When in Rome..
