Detailed Sleeves

My absolute favorite trend of all right now is detailed sleeves. This is a trend I can jump on board with because it’s not too “trendy” and it’s universally flattering. A big puffy sleeve with embroidery is something everyone with every body type can pull off. Plus, it’s just a fun look!

I particularly love thes puffy sleeves on this dress because the waist is senched and the rest of the dress is loosely form fitting which shows off body shape. I typically won’t go for a top or dress with puffy sleeves and no body shape because you can look a lot larger than you actually are and who wants that??! This dress has the perfect balance of shape and fun flare with the sleeves. I’m also in lovvve with this tangerine color. So pretty and fun!

Colorful Crochet

Have you ever seen a top that’s as happy as this one?! You know what they say, you are what you wear, and this colorful crochet is sure to make you smile. I’ve been obsessed with Alice and Olivia for quite some time but I usually wait for items to go on markdown before making a purchase. I’ve been eyeing this top for a while on Nordstrom and freaked out when I saw it was on sale on Shopbop! It’s SO comfortable and fun to wear! I think it’s a no brainer to pair with white jeans and heels for a night out or high waisted denim shorts and sandals for a casual day look. This is also a top that will never go out of style. I see this piece being a staple in my closet when I’m wanting to wear something fun and comfortable for many spring and summers to come!

The Basic Shirt Dress Every Girl Needs

Every summer I look for affordable and casual dresses I can wear all season long. You cannot go wrong with a white button up shirt dress. They are so versatile and classic. You can dress it down with flip flops and a headband or dress it up in the evening with heels and some fun earrings. And guess what, if you’re eating a burger and fries and you get ketchup on your dress, no worries because it was only $30! In fact, why not get TWO of the same dress just in case (that’s what I do)!

Nordstrom Sale 2019

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know the Nordstrom sale is finally here! You might be a little over hearing every other soul talk about this sale (don’t worry, you’re not alone) but one more can’t hurt! I typically do not go crazy over this sale. It’s so easy to get sucked into the hype and excitement over the Nordstrom sale but it’s important to ask yourself “do I really need this” before clicking “place this order”. I’ve selected items I truly love and could use or wear outside of just fall. I look for the brands I love, fragrances I love and items I need.

Here’s a quick rundown of my top 10 items!

I don’t know about you but something about this outfit just makes me happy!

Gingham ✔︎

What could be better than that combo?! I’m seriously loving this little button down from Mango I purchased last month (now on sale for $42.00). It’s super lightweight, flattering and goes with just about anything in your summer wardrobe! I’ve had these shorts since…

Summer Day Dresses

Summer is in full swing and so is the Texas heat! Lately I’ve found myself reaching for loose lightweight dresses that are breathable and comfortable. I’m in love with this shirt dress made by LacaUSA I purchased last year. It’s one of those throw on dresses you can wear around the house to dress up with wedges for a weekday dinner. Shirt dresses are classic summer staples that never go out of style. I love how polished and simple they are. You can also wear them opened up over a swimsuit or belted at the waist to give you some shape. LacaUSA makes the most comfortable quality pieces that feel like butter! Unfortunately, this one is sold out, but I’ve linked some of my favorite shirt dresses below!

Dressing in Color

We all go through different seasons of life just like we do with the weather. Seasons of life can come naturally but they most always come from change. I’ve personally had a lot of change this year and during those shifts I’ve noticed changes within myself. A small example has been my change in wardrobe. All of the sudden, I’ve found myself gravitating towards LOTS of color and looking at my neutral wardrobe and feeling bored. 6 months ago I literally had maybe 6 items in my closet that had color. When I ordered clothes online, I couldn’t purchase something if it didn’t go with my all neutral wardrobe both virtually and physically. If all items in my cart didn’t “go together” I would…

4 Summer Essential Items

Every Summer I find myself hunting for about 4 different items to freshen up my wardrobe - Sunglasses, Swimsuits, Shorts and Sandals. What else do you really need during summertime?! I’ve rounded up all my favorite picks for each category with price and quality in mind. In my opinion, you don’t want to go real cheap when it comes to summer staples because you want them to last throughout the season and stand up to the wear and tear. I don’t like to buy real expensive swimsuits but the older I’ve gotten I’ve realized quality is always important when it comes to swimwear. You want to feel your absolute best in a swimsuit and cheap $20 sets just won’t do the trick. I think the same is to be said about…

A Classic Jumpsuit for Summer

Similar to dresses, jumpsuits are so easy and effortless to throw on. They don’t require much thought and they’re generally pretty comfortable. I fell in love with this suite (and every other item) from Gal Meets Glam collection! At first, I thought the prices seemed slightly elevated until I ordered this jumpsuit and put it on. The material is weighted, creamy and tailored in all the right places. This is by no means “cheap” by quality standards and totally worth the investment. I chose this jumpsuit as my first GMG purchase (I’m sure there will be many to follow…) because I thought it was so classic and versatile. It should be no surprise to you by now that I’m a mostly modest dresser and prefer to…

Red Poppy Dress

You can’t put on a red floral flowy dress and not be happy in my opinion! The summer heat (and humidity) is already in full swing in Austin and I’m looking for loose fitted cotton dresses that are breathable and functional. Zara is always my go-to for affordable and fashionable pieces for every season. This dress is one of my favorites and can be styled with heels or flats. Most importantly, it’s super…

Soft Neutrals for Summer

Lately I’ve been more into color and pretty prints but I’m always drawn to soft neutral looks that I can wear everyday. This spring and summer I’ve been pairing these linen pants with white t shirts, wrap tops and so much more! They’re extremely comfortable and easy to dress up and dress down. Wide leg trousers are very much in, and as with most pants, always more flattering when high waisted. Also, if you don’t have any espadrille wedges by now…

It’s also extremely flattering with the v neck cut and the fitted waist. I’m telling you, this is a dress that you put on and never want to take off! It’s also really breathable and lightweight so it’s perfect for those warm summer nights! You could also…

3 Tips for Dressing Feminine This Spring

If I had to describe my style in two words, I would probably say feminine and classic. I always dress on the conservative side and choose pieces that accentuate my figure and height. There is nothing prettier to me than when a woman is dressed appropriately and highlighting her assets. For me, I’ve had to live and learn when it’s come to dressing. There’s no better way to tailor your personal style than by looking back at photos and seeing what shapes, colors and outfits looked best on you. From there, you can see what to look for when you’re shopping for new pieces to…

Blue Hues

Lately I’ve been on the hunt for spring clothes with colors that complement my skin tone and brighten up all of my neutral staples. I’ve been OBSESSED with light blue shades. I think this color is a universal tone everyone looks pretty in. It’s also always in season. All to say, I love this button up top and have been wearing it on repeat lately! It’s super comfortable and breathable. Perfect for warmer temperatures and humidity. I love finding simple tops that don’t require much thought when you’re trying to figure out what to wear in the morning. This is a basic staple that I’ll be pulling out all spring and summer long! Oh yeah and the best part is…

Spring & Summer Hats

With every change in season there should be a change in accessories. I love refreshing my handbags, shoes and of course a new hat! I usually wear my straw hats to the bone whether it’s to the beach, on a vacation or just to style up my outfit. Also, if you haven’t heard, visors are back in and SUPER cute! If you’re brave enough to try them out, check out some of my favorites here! I’ve rounded up my go-to hats this season for every price range that will be in style all spring and summer long! I will say, my more expensive straw hats have really held up and stood the test of time. I definitely believe in investing in quality accessories like hats that you can continue to pull out year after year.

Pleats are in for Spring!

There’s nothing like sunshine, blooming flowers and warmer weather that puts you in the mood to wear COLOR! I’m all about finding shades of color that complement your skin tone and silhouettes that accent your figure. I fell in love with this dress a couple of months ago when I saw it was on sale and I had to have it. I’m a sucker for any good sale… I always find really good pieces from Vince on markdown so it’s hard to buy something full price unless I really really love it. I will say, the quality is really nice and every item I have has lasted the test of time.

Chambray Ruffle Dress

I’m really excited about this post that I shot a couple weeks ago because I’m so in love with this chambray dress!! I’m always on the hunt for good denim dresses because I think they are SO versatile and super comfortable. I like to dress them up with some white cowboy boots or heels but they also go really well with white sneakers or sandals. Most importantly, I don’t like to splurge on chambray dresses because I just don’t think you have to! That’s why this dress is so great. It’s super comfortable, very affordable and extremely flattering. This would be perfect for…

Perfect White Dresses for Spring!

April is in full swing, and full bloom, and I absolutely love it!! Spring has to be my favorite time of year. The mornings are still brisk, the flowers are blooming and the sun doesn’t set until 8:00. Lately I’ve been starting my mornings with a walk around the neighborhood with Lucille and it’s really setting my day off on the right foot. With this this change in season, I’ve also had a change of season in my life. After leaving my job of 5 1/2 years that I truly loved…
