Here’s some other really cute gingham pieces:

These tank dresses make for the perfect summer dress because they are so comfortable and lightweight! I am wearing medium here. Also, linking my smiley face hat here because I always get so many DMs when I wear it! Use code ROSELYN15 for a discount.

How To Style A Graphic Sweatshirt

1. With The Matching Sweats- This is probably my favorite way because it’s the comfiest 🙂

4. Graphic Sweatshirt with Denim Shorts- super simple but still looks put together.

5. Graphic Sweatshirt with Slacks- Yes, with slacks, I said it 🙂 Bonus points if you grab a bold, colorful pair like some of these or these.

Casual Date Outfit + Houston Restaurants I Want TO Try THis Spring

Houstonians are lucky for so many reasons, weather isn’t one of them 🙂 but the restaurant scene kind of makes up for that! I feel like there are restaurant openings every week and there are so many on my list that I want to try. Today I am sharing 5 that are at the top of my list plus a really cute casual date night outfit.

Shop this outfit:

5 Houston Restaurants On My List To Try

Gatsby’s Steakhouse– I love a date night with Brandon that includes a good steakhouse! A local one we frequent is Killen’s and we always love going to Mastro’s but Gatsby’s Prime Steakhouse has been on my list. The menu offers up prime meats and decadent seafood dishes all while the location gives off Great Gatsby’s vibes. I can’t wait to go!

Flora– The newly opened restaurant took over what once was The Dunlavy. If you have every been to The Dunlavy, you know this space is stunning. The entire restaurant is floor to ceiling windows and you feel like you are literally sitting in a glass building that’s sitting in the trees. The ambiance alone is 10/10. The Flora menu “reimagines what Mexican food can be – offering familiar flavors and iconic dishes, newly interpreted.” Mexican food? Umm yes please! They also pride themselves on craft cocktails.

Casa Nomad– I haven’t been to Tulum yet but until then Casa Nomad will have to do! 🙂 The Mayan inspired menu includes dishes like Tajin melon salad, tamales, tuna crudo tostadas and elote ribs with cotija. The owners, who are also the same trio that own Wicklow Heights, wanted the ambiance to be like a laidback beachfront bar you would experience in Tulum. And from what I have heard from my friends who have already gone, they nailed it!

Rosalie– Fun fact: I had a neighbor on my street growing up that always called me Roselie. I never knew if he was just messing with me or honestly just never learned my real name LOL. But that’s not why I want to visit Rosalie. This Italian restaurant won me over from their very instagrammable decor. It’s girly, chic and so much floral! The bonus is that the menu looks just as good! It includes pastas, salads, pizzas and yummy cocktails!

Kindee Thai Cuisine– Raise your hand if you love Thai food. (raises both hands!) The northern style curry, thai basil chicken and stir fried glass noodles are definitely at the top of my list to try! But what is super cool is that they have “Thai Tuesdays” where they showcase traditional Thai dancing from different regions of Thailand. How cool is that?! I wanted to go here for a date night but I think I might bring the kids for Thai Tuesday!

Have you guys tried any of these Houston restaurants out yet? What other restaurants are on your list to try?!

Landon’s Sonic The Hedgehog Birthday Party

For about a month, Landon would change his mind everyday about what birthday theme he wanted. He couldn’t decide between Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Sonic the Hedgehog, Spiderman and Football. What can I say, my boy loves all the things! I am so happy he decided on Sonic the Hedgehog though because it was so fun decorating for it!

Today I am sharing the details about his party in case you have a Sonic loving little one and planning a birthday party soon!

The Decorations

Over The Top Party Events is the same company that did Camila’s Barbie Party. Landon loved her balloons so much, he personally asked the Over The Top team if they would come back for his party before they were even done decorating for Camila’s last year LOL.

I loved the personalized Sonic backdrop they created for him! We had a bit of a windy situation so they had to move the backdrop against the fence which we didn’t originally plan but we still loved the way it looked! They even made the table centerpieces below.

The Food

We always do a mix of kid friendly finger foods and yummy adult food. And when I say kid friendly, I mean kids partly look forward to going to birthday parties because they know they are going to eat things like cookies, chips, cupcakes and chicken nugs but adults wanna eat good food too LOL. We ordered our favorite wraps and salad from Zoe’s Kitchen and I just named each dish something “on theme” to make it coordinate with the Sonic party. I know Sonic doesn’t eat steak wraps but naming things like “Super Sonic Steak Rolls Ups” and “Catch Me If You Can Chicken Nugs” and “Gotta Go Faster Fruit” ties it all together! 🙂

The amazing Sonic cookies were made by Treats by Bec. I ordered this ombre two tiered cake from HEB Bakery and purchased the Sonic cake topper from Amazon.

The Bounce House & Special Appearance

Landon was so excited Sonic made a special appearance at his birthday party but even more excited that daddy surprised him as Dr. Robotnik. We were all surprised!! LOL

We rented chairs, tables and bounce house from Sky High Party Rentals.

The Goody Bags

The kids love playing with sensory kits so I knew I wanted to create something similar for Landon’s goody bags. I reached out to Sensory Kit Mama, a local mama with a small business that I have purchased from before, with my idea and she made these awesome bags for Landon’s friends!

Friends, Fun and The Memories

boy birthday party ideas

Seeing Landon, Camila and all of their friends smiling and playing and laughing is what it is all about. Landon had the best time at his birthday party with his friends and my mama heart could not have been happier!

In case you are planning a Sonic birthday party soon, I will link what I can below. If you are local to Houston, the vendors we used are linked throughout the blog post.

Have a great day ya’ll!

White Denim Pieces For Summer

I shared these two white denim pieces during my Try On Tuesday this week and they are both so good. I really wanted to wear the jumpsuit to the rodeo but I had to think about all of the rodeo food I was going to eat and I was afraid my white denim wouldn’t stand a chance!

However, I can’t wait to style it all the ways this Spring and Summer. If you are in the market for some white hot denim, this post is for you!

White Denim Jumpsuit

This denim jumpsuit is actually a cropped jumpsuit but on my 5’3″ self the length is great! It has the perfect amount of stretch so it’s comfortable and flattering. I am wearing a size medium. This white denim number can be dressed up with boots or heels but also can be worn casual chic like above! Scarf and bag are from Amazon. My gold sequin headpiece is from Asos like 2 or 3 years ago so they no longer have the exact once but I did find a silver one on their site. Linking pieces below.

White Denim Romper

When the white denim pieces are so good on Show Me Your Mumu’s site, you can’t just pick one! The romper and jumpsuit give off a whole different vibe and I am here for both 🙂 I am wearing a medium in this white denim romper as well. It would be super cute with sneakers! Linking this look below.

Matching Two Piece Dot Set

Are you a matchy matchy kind of gal or would you rather mix things up? Both for me depending on the day 🙂

I came across this super cute zoo dot print at Loft a few weeks ago and I couldn’t decide between the navy or white so I grabbed a little bit of both!

chambray blazer outfits

This chambray blazer is also from Loft and I love how it pairs with these looks!

summer outfits for ladies 2022

Both of these looks are perfect for Spring and Summer! The chambray blazer keeps things casual but classy at the same time! I am wearing a small in the shorts, tops and blazer for reference. The white sneakers are sold out but I just saw they added a navy color!

Making Breakfast Fun with Walmart+

This post was done in partnership with Walmart.

My favorite way to start the day is waking up before the kids, sipping my coffee in peace and then cooking Landon and Camila a super fun breakfast! I know most of you see me sharing our breakfast ideas on Instagram stories but what I don’t show ya’ll is all the dirty dishes most of those breakfasts make. Rainbow waffles don’t come easy okay LOL.

Today I am sharing items that you can purchase from Walmart that will make your breakfast for kids super fun but less of a mess than my kitchen is sometimes. Cute egg molds, pancake molds and unique waffle makers to make your fun mom life that much easier!

fun breakfast ideas for kids

I use my Walmart+ membership regularly to shop items like these and so much more as the membership provides free delivery on groceries and more! Walmart+ has $0 delivery fees and the same low prices as in store so no hidden fees or mark ups ($35 order min. Restrictions apply.).

Along with free shipping with no order minimum (Excludes most Marketplace items, location & freight surcharges), Walmart+ members also receive member prices on fuel and while so many other memberships and services are increasing their prices this year, Walmart+ is holding their $98 a year (or $12.95 a month) membership fee! If you don’t have Walmart+ yet, you can sign up here.

It’s no shocker that I own most of the items shown above but what I just ordered is this superhero waffle maker and hard boiled egg mold. These are so fun! The kids love hard boiled eggs but I never knew how to make them fun! Walmart read my mind, haha!

I am so excited to live my best life with Ricky Martin and some girlfriends at Rodeo Houston tonight!

I was a little bummed earlier in the week because we found out last minute that my sister wasn’t coming in for the weekend like we had planned 🙁 She’s actually the reason we got the Ricky Martin tickets lol so I think she’s a little more bummed she’s missing out on him. Minette, I promise to have a skinny margarita for you and tell Ricky you love him!

If you guys are looking for a pretty Spring dress, this Buddy Love one is so cute! I love the girly print and I now own this silhouette in 4 different colors. It’s that good! I am wearing a medium for reference.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Beauty Empties: Love It Or Leave It

I have 4 empties to share with you guys today! 2 skincare products and 2 makeup products! Let’s get into it!

drunk elephant product review

Elf Cosmetics Camo CC Cream

What is it?: A medium to full coverage color correcting foundation with SPF 30 protection. “A multitasking dream cream with peptides and niacinamide known to plump, hydrate and smooth the appearance of your skin while protecting with SPF.”

How To Apply: Can be applied with Elf Cosmetics duo brush or beauty blender.

My Opinion: This Elf Cosmetics CC Cream is known to be a “dupe” for the It Cosmetics CC Cream and ya’ll know I love my It Cosmetics CC Cream! Because of this ones $14 price tag I decided to give it a try! Although both infused with collagen, hyaluronic acid and niacin which is great for brightening and evening out skin tone, I actually did not love the Elf Cosmetics CC Cream. It definitely has more of a matte finish versus the glowy one It Cosmetic gives you. It’s also a little heavier than the It Cosmetics one which I don’t totally mind when wanting to wear a full foundation but a CC Cream should feel like second skin and this one did not. This will not be a repurchase for me.

Elf Cosmetics Poreless Face Primer

What Is It?: A face primer that helps fill in enlarged pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. This primer is infused with tea tree and vitamins A & E for restorative benefits and helps blurs imperfections.

How To Use: Apply to clean skin prior to makeup application to prep skin. Use a small amount and blend evenly on your face.

My Opinion: Okay initially I could not get over the smell LOL. I can’t quite put my finger on what it smells like but it definitely has a scent. Some reviews said it is the scent from tea tree oil. Aside from the scent this $10 makeup primer worked really well! You don’t need to use much product at all and it gives you a smooth, silky like finish. It definitely helps camoflauge pores. I would definitely repurchase.

Artistry Renewing Foam Cleanser

What Is It?: A foaming face cleanser designed to be microbiome-friendly. “This cleanser effectively removes impurities while calming your skin’s defense barrier“.

How To Use: Dampen skin with warm water. Dispense cleanser onto palms and work into a lather. Gentle massage over skin. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Use AM and PM.

My Opinion: I had never even heard of this product until I got a PR Package from their team. Once I finished the bottle of facial cleanser I was currently using I began using this one. Ya’ll, I love this cleanser! It’s super gentle on the skin and the foaming effect leaves you with an ultra clean feeling. Immediately after each face wash, it left my skin feeling soft and hydrated. I would definitely repurchase.

Drunk Elephant B Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum

What Is It?: A serum formulated with pro-vitamin B5 and pineapple ceramide, to deliver steady hydration throughout the day, leaving the skin looking healthy and more illuminated.

How To Use: Apply B-Hydra™ to face, neck, chest, hands, or any place on your body needing increased hydration. Mix with any Drunk Elephant serum, oil, or cream to lock it in.

My Opinion: I ordered another bottle before I could even write this post! This vitamin B gel was exactly what my skin needed during these colder months. It absorbs quickly so it doesn’t feel greasy and it’s extremely hydrating and lightweight on the skin. Like mentioned above, it can be used on the body as well. I mixed this serum in with the Drunk Elephant body lotion when we were in super cold, snowy weather a few weeks ago and it didn’t wonders for my skin that week. 2 thumbs up for this product!
