Outfits Lately

Happy weekend friends! I hope you have the best weekend chillin’ with your family and friends!  Shannon and I are kicking off the weekend with some super fun plans that involve my boyfriend, Justin Timberlake. He’s performing in Houston tonight and we were lucky to get tickets courtesy of Verizon Up!  Can’t stop the feelin . . . . . !!!!  Join us tonight on Stories for some behind the scenes peeks!

Then we’ll be heading to Lost Pines on Saturday for some family fun.  I’m definitely looking forward to relaxing in the sun with a big, fat piña colada! Who’s with me?!

This week was a busy one on the blog!  We kicked off Monday with a productive GSD, followed by a detailed jean shorts review from long to short, and don’t forget the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is going on now!  There’s major discounts on Spring & Summer things, but they’re going fast, so don’t wait if you see something you have to have!

Today I’m rounding up a few weeks of Spring Outfits and hopefully, this gives you some inspiration for your own wardrobe!


Spring & Summer outfit - Eyelet top scallop shorts and wedges

Embroidered Top 00 • Scallop Shorts 00 • Black Everyday WedgeEarringsAnkletClutch 20% Off

Last week, Ashley and I headed to Austin for a day trip and I wore this adorable blue and white embroidered, eyelet top.  The scallop shorts are easy to dress up or down since they’re a cotton blend that looks like linen, but doesn’t wrinkle as much.

It was a quick trip, so we only had time to stop for lunch and then head to an evening blogger party. This girl seriously cracks me up!  Never a dull moment with her! And seriously, #hairgoals

Spring and Summer outfit - white sundress and wedges

White Lace Dress XSP • Gold Studded Wedge • Wooden Bag ($40, small)

At the evening party in Austin, I wore my favorite little white dress.  We all have to have one of those in our closets, right?!  It’s the same one I wore to the blogger conference last month and I’m happy to bring in out over and over.  It’s fully lined and the perfect feminine dress for Spring and Summer soirees.

If you ever see me in front of this graffiti wall, you know I’m at Hughie’s getting my Vietnamese Iced Coffee fix!  Ali-Shaun got me hooked on it last year and it’s addicting!  It’ll definitely give you a mid-afternoon jolt!

These jean shorts are my new favorite pair from my Jean Short Review.  They’re extra soft and comfy with plenty of stretch.  And you can’t go wrong with white eyelet this time of year.

I also saw that these light blue ‘seltzer’ Tory Burch Miller sandals are 40% off now!  What a steal! I really like this blue and they add a soft pop of color to your outfit.  Sizes are very limited. #fingerscrossed

Spring & Summer outfit - striped maxi dress

Stripe Maxi Dress (XSP) 40% Off • Blue Sandals 40% Off

I’ve been thrilled to see several maxi dresses in petite sizes lately that require no alterations for us shorter gals!  Even better when it’s on sale 40% off!  It’s kind of hard to tell in the photo, but this dress is navy and white and comes in regular and petite.

Loft Maxi Dress

Maxi Dress (XSP) 40% Off

I wore this comfortable soft blue maxi dress (the back is super cute!) to watch James perform as the Candyman in the Willy Wonka play at school.  My heart about burst with pride when he sang his solo in front of the audience.  He and all the other kids rehearsed for months and did great! And seriously, the teachers deserve an award for working so hard with them!

I know I’m biased, but ins’t he a cutie?!

Spring and Summer outfit ideas - navy polka dot dress with red accessories

Blue Polka Dot Dress 0P • Red Shoes • EarringsNecklace

You’ll feel classy and elegant in this polka dot high/low hem dress.  It’s got that perfect swing factor and is fully lined.  Plus, the cut of the dress is very flattering.  I dressed it up with red accessories in honor of Memorial Day.

The lipstick is what y’all really wanted to know about. It’s by MAC, called EROS.  I like this lipstick because the color is intense, but also feels creamy on and lasts all day.  Also, I don’t find that MAC lipsticks have any weird smell or taste – and I’m particular about that!

Gingham skirt with black top and wedges

Top (XSP) • Skirt (XS)• Similar Clutch • Wedges • Sunglasses

Have you been seeing gingham everywhere lately??  I’m partial to this pattern and have it in skirts, dresses (see below) and tops!  My skirt sold out, but these two are similar, equally as charming and 40% off!  Tie Waist Gingham Skirt & JCrew Gingham Skirt

Spring and Summer fashion - gingham sundress

Y’all went crazy for this sundress when I shared it on Instagram.  It comes in a million colors/patterns and is darling with the ruffle bodice and skirt. It also has a small hook and eye closure to keep the front closed. #nowardrobemalfunctionsplease 

Spring & Summer outfit - white tank and safari shorts

Now these safari shorts will definitely be on repeat this summer.  The neutral color goes with everything and they are so comfortable!  I love the waist and pockets!

I have several of these Essential Tanks and really like the quality and cut of them.  They aren’t sheer or too thin or too long/short.  You can wear them alone or as layering pieces. Right now they are on major sale almost half off, only $8!

You saw this pink flutter sleeve top in my latest Work • Weekend  Wow post, and I know we all appreciate seeing how to wear one thing multiple ways. Here, I like the pale pink/white/and tan combo.
Spring outfit - Loft black jumpsuit

Jumpsuit XSP

If you saw Wednesday’s Dressing Room post, you know I love a good jumpsuit!  This one is sooooo good! It’s ultra comfy with a little ruffle at the back and pockets too!  This is the kind of jumpsuit you can dress up with heels or wear causally with flat sandals.  Both work, depending on your mood and the event.

Spring outfit - striped maxi dress

T-Shirt Maxi Dress XXSP • Crossbody Bag • Watch • Blue Flip Flops • Bracelets • J Necklace

Y’all were crazy for this drawstring maxi dress.  It’s like your comfiest t-shirt, in a dress! It runs big, so size down. The XXSP fit me perfectly without having to alter the length.

Yep, it’s that time of year when jean shorts are getting all the love!  This is my go-to pair that I’ve had several years now and they’re still going strong.  Pairing them with converse sneakers and a red and white striped tee will easily have you ready for a Memorial Day backyard BBQ!

Spring & Summer outfit - maxi dress

Solid Maxi (XS) • Everyday Wedges • Pendant Necklace • Statement Earrings • Similar Clutch • Bracelets • Watch

Sometimes you want to look a bit more pulled together than throwing on jean shorts, and embroidered cotton shorts do the trick.  The swing tank is a steal at $29 and makes for a good date night outfit with jeans and heels.

How to Style Your White Blazer for Work

I remember how much better my day seemed to go at work when I had something cute to wear!  I used to plan all my outfits for the week on Sunday (with accessories) to make my mornings go smoother! Do you do that?

The ankle pants could be your new go-to with the slim shape & pockets.  They come in regular & petite and fit TTS. The tunic is versatile for work & weekend, in several colors. Size up 1/2 in the leopard heels.
