One of my favorite ways to style a sleeveless dress for a different look is pairing it with a chambray shirt. Especially this time of year, a chambray shirt allows you to still mix a little summer into a fall look. The colors in this burgundy midi dress are so vibrant, I couldn’t wait until the temperatures cooled down to share it with you! Not to worry, I will be styling it again for fall. But in the meantime, this burgundy dress and chambray shirt make for the perfect summer to fall transitional look.
Since seeing the faux leather jacket during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I’ve been dying to wear mine. My leather jacket was a purchase from a previous Anniversary Sale and it’s one of my favorite layers in the fall and winter. Last Saturday, there was a serious chill (and wind) in the air and an extra layer became a necessity. I paired this gingham dress and leather jacket together for an easy summer to fall transitional look that happened to be a little preppy and a little edgy.
Finding the perfect dress for a wedding can be a challenge, especially when it’s a summertime wedding. The heat and humidity are huge factors when determining your look for the day. My cousin’s wedding was last weekend in downtown Annapolis and I had spent months trying to find the perfect dress. When I stumbled upon this cobalt blue peplum dress a few months ago, I knew it would be perfect for their nautical themed wedding.
Is there anything more summer than a one shoulder gingham dress? I have spent the last few months searching for a gingham dress to add to my closet, but didn’t have much luck until I stumbled upon this one. Gingham is one of my favorite prints of the season and it only seemed fitting to add another to my collection (you might remember last year’s from this post). Needless to say that when I found a one shoulder dress that also happened to be gingham, it seemed too good to be true!Read More
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times: there is something about a cold shoulder top this spring and summer. I spotted this top before we went to California and was so excited to pair it with shorts and white jeans. Well, it was pretty warm while we were in the desert and I stuck to mostly dresses. But I had the opportunity to pair it with my favorite high-waisted jeans and white accessories a few weeks ago when we got back to Virginia.Read More
Happy Thursday, friends! The long holiday weekend is within reach now! I know it’s not even July yet, and you all are probably going to hate reading this, but I have already started to plan my fall wardrobe. Fall is by far my favorite season and by the time July rolls around, I am tired of the heat and humidity and ready for the cooler, fall temperatures. Of course, I do love fall clothes, too!
Happy Monday, friends! With the Fourth of July just a little over a week away, I wanted to share a patriotic outfit idea that would be perfect for a BBQ. Not only is this ruffle dress super light and cool, I found the most perfect bag for any summer event. More on that below!Read More
Happy almost Friday, friends! Graphic shirts have been all the rage but I really haven’t jumped on this “trend train” until recently. My first real graphic tee was this blonde tee that I shared in this post a few months ago. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of plastering brand names and logos all over my clothing and accessories and I think that is probably why in the past I have shied away from this trend. But, when a saying has a special meaning to me or is completely and totally relatable, I wear it loud and proud! Needless to say this particular sweatshirt couldn’t be more perfect.
