Super(model) Mom: Meet Lili

I have made a handful of friends through the blogging world and Lili happens to be one of them. Lili lives in Houston with her husband and gorgeous son Aston. She is a party planner extraordinaire and writes 3 BLOGS!!!! She has a family blog, The Style Spy and her very popular party blog Swanky Chic Fete. She has an impeccable eye for all things should see her Pinterest boards. INSPIRATION GALORE!

Lili, thanks for participating! I hope to meet you in person someday, until then I will just enjoy reading all of your beautiful blogs :)

Here is a little peek into Lili's closet and her favorite style inspiration...

1.) who most inspires you?
Other than the obvious answer of my family, there's one special friend that inspires me ~ Daphne { }. She's first and foremost a mom, wife and a very talented tv host/producer/UNICEF ambassador/. A succesful businesswoman with some of the most amazing products under her name : jewelry, fine furniture and bed linens. She does it all and still comes home and does homework with her girls!

2.) Whose celeb closet would you most like to raid?
Rachel Zoe's and Tory Burch's closets for their collection of vintage clothes and jewelry

3.) What is one thing in your closet that you love the most?
 I treasure this special custom-made glazed alligator clutch by Houston local handbag designer Alexandra Knight {its has my name engraved in a silverplate inside the clutch}. I love to carry it every chance I get on special occasions. { }

4.) What are your favorite budget buys?
All the designer for Target collaboration lines. i am super excited for the Missoni for Target coming soon! also, Old Navy sells the best leggings for like $10!

5.) What are your top 3 favorite places to shop?
 a) Target, I love that I can pick up my son's stash of his favorite Goldfish crackers & across the aisle I can pick up pillows for our home b) Abientot, a local shop that carries lovely treasures like home accessories, costume jewelry, preppy party supplies and more! { } c) i love a good a bargain so, the Saks Off 5th store close by my house is usually a regular stop shop for designer bargain finds! and oh, my fave online shopping sites is a totally whole other blogpost!

6.) What season do you most like to dress for?
 Fall/Winter or Spring/Summer and why? I would say Fall/Winter, simply because it's really hard dressing up in Houston during the summer when all you want to wear everyday is shorts, flipflops or anything linen! I love wearing comfortable luxurious cashmere cardigans and leggings during the cooler months!

7.) What is your daily "uniform" :
 During the summer, its usually a pair of shorts and a pretty blouse and a pair of Jack Rogers. For the winter, its leggings/skinny jeans and chunky cardigans.

8.) If you could splurge on one item right now, what would it be?
Hmmmm, couldnt think of anything but I would love to splurge on a week long (or 2) vacation with my family anywhere that's cooler than Houston! This summer is brutal!

9.) What are your top 3 favorite style blogs?
 there are sooo many! you should see my marked favorites!  a) I want to be her! { }
 b) its not a blog but i love to follow for the latest runway reports and of course
 c) scout! 

10.) Worst fashion mistake?
wearing ill-fitting clothes even if theyre the latest trends or the fanciest designer duds!
