OOTD | pink blazer

January 14, 2018

Blazers are my fashion comfort zone and the closet staple that gets the most of my attention.  I was just telling a friend of mine that I feel most confident in a blazer, whether I’m casual daytime or dressed up at night. I have one in my car always that I can easily throw over a tee-shirt for an impromptu meeting or lunch. So, it is no surprise that I would gravitate towards this pink Theory blazer to carry me into spring. I don’t own any of the pieces of this outfit below, but they are all at the top of my wish list!

Why We Wear Black

January 8, 2018

All black dominated the red carpet at the Academy Awards and for more compelling reasons than current trends. I loved the bold statement. Girl power dominated, the speeches were empowering and fashion on point. It’s been inspiring to see so many women stand together on social media the past few days too. Lucky for me, I don’t have a #metoo story for y’all, but I do have some all black fashion inspiration from over the past year or so! You can still shop these looks below.

Jon Hart

December 21, 2017



When one of my favorite Texas brands, Jon Hart, reached out to collaborate with L. Avenue I was stoked. I’ve been gifting Jon Hart koozies, dop kits and all things special and monogrammed for years.  I love the craftsmanship behind this high quality travel and accessory line. Jon Hart has products ranging from keychains to make-up and jewelry cases to duffle bags and suitcases. And did I mention the ultra durable canvas comes in an array of colors – pink, blue, orange, moss green, lavender black and camo to name a few.

Recently, I’ve also made a few “for me” purchases from this favorite brand.  I finally pulled the trigger on a new travel makeup bag because Ive been known to travel with a zip lock bag for my make-up, no joke. I also snagged the day tripper bag and Im loving the size, perfect for a quick one or two night stay. It also makes a great new mom diaper bag! The reason I say “new mom” is because there’s ample space for the overpacking us new mamas tend to do with the first kid. By the third I’m running out of the house with a diaper and paci jammed inside. Ha!

Speaking of motherhood, one of the best parts about my work with Jon Hart is I got to shoot with my children. We had the best time talking with the Jon Hart team about the holidays, family traditions and all things fashion and motherhood. Here’s a little video recap if you’d like to see!

L. Avenue | Amazon Last Minute Holiday Gifts

December 19, 2017

L ave and Amazon

Need any last minute gift ideas for those special people in your life? Well, Amazon Prime can have it to by Friday and in some instances is even offering Free One Day Shipping.

For Women: I’m really wanting a fur clutch. I don’t know why as it isn’t very practical and I can’t carry it year round, but I love this statement black fox fur clutch for the holiday and winter months. I think it is the perfect pop of pizazz! Speaking of statement bags this Milly clutch and this glitter eyelash one  are so festive to rock at your NYE party. I have a fur shrug that I’ve worn a lot during the winter and haven’t seen many that I like, but this black fox one is beautiful and maybe unexpected surprise under the tree. Not to mention, a really good price for a real fur shrug. Still searching for a NYE party dress? This sequin Self Portrait dress is stunning ear while ringing in 2018!

For Men: This cashmere 3/4 zip sweater is a perfect layering piece for any man. Bret wears a pullover a lot during the cooler months as it is much easier than carrying around a jacket. I don’t think men get as cold as women. Ha. I’m equally loving this cashmere crewneck style, as well. I love giving crazy socks and this 3-pack of Paul Smith socks are a perfect stocking stuffer. If you are traveling anywhere cold this holiday season you can stock your guy’s stocking with this North Face beanie and a pair of waterproof gloves for those snowy vacations.

easy holiday appetizer + cocktails

December 18, 2017

Ariel Barcart

In case you’re hosting this holiday, we’ve teamed up with the fabulous Marcia, of Smart in the Kitchen, to bring y’all some easy, deicious appetizers and cocktails! When I think of the holidays I think bubbly so a festive champagne cocktail is right up my alley. We made this prosecco pomegranate spritz recipe for a dinner party the other night and it was a hit! I’m hosting an ornament party later this week and think I’ll try the pomegranate and cranberry sangria recipe, which is a great recipe for a larger crowd.

Baked brie is also one of my go-to’s for Christmas and Marcia’s version is my favorite yet. The Meyer lemon cranberry sauce is to die for! I love having something sweet to set out for guests (or me!) and this Peppermint bark is a simple sweet treat. It’s been tempting me this entire holiday season. I have some family members who are gluten free so I’m going to make this GF apple crisp recipe for Christmas dinner. Now I think I’ll go have a snack because just writing this post is making me hungry. Cheers to you and yours!!

When the team at Dazzling Decor asked us to style one of their bar carts, it was a no brainer for today’s holiday entertaining post. I love the mix of gold, glass and luxe green marble on this gorgeous piece. I’ve always wanted one for my home, but never found the perfect spot for one. I love how today’s bar cart turned out, it’s functional as a spot for cocktails and appetizers and looks so festive and chic!

Christmas Pajama Party

December 17, 2017


Christmas pajamas are one of my favorite holiday traditions. My sisters and I rock some ridiculous onesies the night of our family Christmas dinner (which was actually just last night–check it out on Insta Stories!) and I love to peruse the internet for pajamas for the kids–these matching pjs were a hit last year!

I can’t help but coordinate with the girls and this year I found these super cute plaid pjs, which are so cozy for the wintery weather that Houston will be experiencing next week. I’ve seen lots of cute and festive pajamas lately, that will be perfect for your Christmas morning including these pajama bottoms that are 40% off with free shipping!

L. Avenue | LZ’s Wish List

December 15, 2017


This year I’m asking Santa for a happy, healthy holiday for my family! We’ve been sick with you name it for the past two weeks and I’m hoping we are knocking out all of the illness before the holidays. Last year we were sick at Christmas and ate frozen pizza for Christmas dinner–it was memorable to say the least!

But in case you’re still searching for an actual present for yours truly (ha!), here’s my wish list this year! Luggage (#13) is at the top of my Christmas list because I’ve been traveling with a suitcase that has a broken wheel and zipper, it’s seen better days to say the least! I’ve also been eyeing Gucci loafers (#25) for so long but just haven’t felt ok pulling the trigger. And I’m pretty good at shopping math too! I love the white version, what do y’all think of the white? Every year I ask for my favorite skincare products (#10) because they’re also a splurge but so, so good! I also LOVE Rebecca de Ravenel’s earrings (#14) and this pair is a new design that would go with everything in my closet! What’s on your list this year?
