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!
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
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
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.
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?!
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!
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
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
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!
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.
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.
These shorts have the cutest white trim scallop detail with a tie waist and pockets! And the back buttons all the way down for a fun twist.
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!
This maxi dress has been a closet staple for years! At under $40, I want one in every color. I wear XS and with wedges, the length is fine on me.
This was of my favorite outfits that came in my first Trunk! 📦🎊These shorts are floral high waist goodness and of course you can never have enough Madewell V-neck tees in your closet! I have the striped & coral but didn’t have the soft blue!
This was the day I got to hear @jillian.harris & @mytexashouse talk about staying authentically you while building your brand and both were so good! My floral shorts and earrings fit right in with the gorgeous decor around here!
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.
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.
This little workhorse of a dress was one of your favorites and it’s only $38 now! They pack well, are easy to take on vacation or throw on for a night out! You can dress them up with heels or wedges and they look great with your Tory Burch Miller sandals! If you’re chilly, throw on a jean jacket and you can have fun accessorizing this dress with all kinds of different necklaces.
It’s not everyday you get to wear a dress that makes you feel like a princess! If you have a fancy event, party or wedding to attend in the next few months, I highly recommend this dress! It’s a stunner and feels amazing on! Somebody please invite me to something so I can wear it again!
