Style and the City

Where to Wear: Round-Framed Sunglasses

Sure it’s winter, but that doesn’t mean the sun don’t shine.

Sure, it’s winter, but that doesn’t mean the sun don’t shine. On and off the runways, we’re seeing ’70s fashions on the rise—thanks, Mad Men—so grab your bell bottoms and these The Row-designed round frame shades to take the sometimes-chilly city of Houston by storm.

Friday: Happy Hour at Julep

Clockwise from top left: The Row oversized round-framed sunglasses, $460 at; A.L.C. Lace-panel cropped top, $551 at; Night Sky Jewels Cocktail Ring and Emerald-Cut Pendant, $98 each at Kate Spade; Kelly & Katie Faith Bootie, $49.95 at DSW; Eileen Fisher Pleated Skirt, $138 at Nordstrom; Zipline Satchel, $280 at Kate Spade Saturday.

It’s Friday, and that’s reason enough for a post-work pick-me-up at Julep. Need another reason? Half-priced drinks. The shades are needed for a bit on the rocky, fire-pitted patio of Julep, but sometime during the 4-6:30 p.m. happy hour, the sun will set and you can tuck those things away in your Kate Spade Saturday bag. The satchel is perfect for everyday work and the classic A-line, pleated skirt is a closet must for any business women. Add the A.L.C lacey top for a pop of color and you’re set for a long work day and a well-earned happy hour.
Saturday: Shopping at Highland Village

Clockwise from top left: Chiffon Kimono, $12.95 at H&M; Black Riley Multifunction Stainless Steel Watch, $135 at Fossil; Black Tahari Daisy Flat, $69.95 at DSW; Mid Rise Slim Flare Jean, $88 at Express; Silence + Noise Double Pocket Shoulder Bag, $39 at Urban Outfitters.

Channel your inner hippie with these shades and kick things up a notch by adding some flared dark wash jeans and a floral kimono for a double-dose of bohemian chic. The kimono top is lightweight, so you won’t get hot from schlepping from store to store finding the perfect gifts for your loved ones. The Tahiri flats look like little black petals around your feet and pair great with the sleek black Fossil watch, which—by the way—would make a great gift. I wonder if there’s a BOGO sale at Fossil...
Sunday: Ice Skating at Discovery Green

Clockwise from top left: Tube scarf, $24.95 at H&M; Heart Fair Isle Trouser Socks, $12.95 from J. Crew; Velvet by Graham and Spencer Jena roll-neck sweater, $251 at; Ponte Knit Five-Pocket Pant, $59.90 at Express; Jet Set Travel Metallic Saffiano Leather Crossbody, $148 at Michael Kors; Anzie 'Aztec' Starburst Drop Earrings, $475 at Nordstrom.

Get comfy and cozy for this physical outdoor activity with these Express knit pants. Even with a warm sun, it gets cold out on the ice, so grab this wool sweater from Velvet by Graham and Spencer. If you’ll be shredding some ice on an extra chilly day, add this faux fur tube scarf from H&M. Finally, since you’ll be pretending to be an ice dancing princess, why not add a little sparkle with this metallic Michael Kors crossbody and some moonstone earrings. There’s never been an ice queen as well-dressed as you.
