Put a little shimmer in your summer. What's haute in Houston.

1. Bebidas // At the beloved, health-minded River Oaks haunt, there are new refreshing bebidas in time for summer - stop in to sample just-released smoothies and juices made with fresh, natural ingredients. Bebidas also has a scrumptious full breakfast and lunch menu, in addition to matcha, coffee and espresso.

2. Elizabeth Lanier Designs // If tassels are your spirit jewelry animal, you’re about to go wild. Browse the cutie local designer's new lariat horsetail necklaces, agate and brass fringe earrings, and brightly-colored beaded baubles that will instantly put you in a flirty mood. 

3. Dawson+Hellmann // Relax all summer in Dawson+Hellmann, the casual chic Texas-based line of pajamas and loungewear. Luxurious, gauzy cotton voile kaftans will keep you looking stylish poolside, while lightweight PJs in push-the-boundary prints like Pot Toile are ideal for year-round relaxation.
