I couldn’t be more excited about the latest Fanm Mon collection, Manmzel! We all know Fanm Mon for its beautiful embroidery and breezy linen fabrics, but the line introduced some new silhouettes that you don’t want to miss. After growing up in Haiti, Sophia, Fanm Mon’s founder, chose to create a fashion brand that blended nature, femininity and her culture. “Manmzel” means “her” in Creole, and this season she wants her collection to represent the true essence of a woman. I’d say she did that well!
I chose the Nazz dress for the puff sleeve, which we all know I love, in yellow, the color of the season. It’s not a color I choose often, but this combo felt like a cheerful addition to my wardrobe. Fanm Mon dresses are the perfect dresses for any celebration whether that’s a baby shower, engagement party or Mother’s Day — you’ll feel flawlessly feminine in any of her pieces!

Happy Wednesday, friends! I’m sharing this look you may have seen on Instagram over the last week or so. The team at Bette’s gifted this knit top to me, and I’m obsessed. I love that it’s a little different from my go-to style — more modern and less feminine than what you usually see me in. Switching things up is always fun! I paired it with these barrel shaped jeans and a strappy sandal for the perfect spring transitional look. Don’t be afraid to try new styles or trends, but never stray too far from your own personal style. This will keep your wardrobe consistent and create the most mileage for you.
I hope you have a great week! XO, MS

I don’t know about you, but this spring is full of events, which means I’ve got lots of dressing up to do! I wore this blue floral dress last week to a rehearsal dinner, and it really got me excited for all of the colorful prints this season. Goodbye drab winter colors! Lucky for you, it’s now on sale at a few retailers! Snag it while all sizes are still available. If you need more spring and summer dress inspiration, head to my LTK profile. I save all of my favorites there!

I don’t know about you, but I love trying new denim trends. Jeans are something I wear almost daily, especially in the winter, so when there’s something fresh out there, I have to try it! Of course, they don’t always work for my body type though. Over the last year, I’m loving straight leg jeans, crop flares, wide leg denim, the horseshoe and even skinny jeans!
When styling the horseshoe jean, focus on wearing something fitted or tucked in on top. You want to accentuate your waist because a completely baggy look isn’t always the most flattering. Here are a few other horseshoe options I’m loving: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. Let me know if you try out this trend!
Have a great week, friends! XO, MS

You can’t get more classic than a blue and white stripe! I’ve been on the hunt for a striped tee and couldn’t find one I loved until I stumbled across this from an unsuspecting place. She’s only $12 and comes in a variety of solids and stripes! I wanted to find a tee that was great for layering under vests, sweaters and cardigans, and this does just that. I may have to snag a few more color ways to refresh some staples in my wardrobe. If you snag one too, let me know what you think!

Hi friends! I’ve been living in my black faux leather pants this winter, so I decided to add something similar to my wardrobe in brown. These coated kick flares are super comfortable, and I love that they can be dressed up and down. I styled them here with a leopard blouse and silver slingbacks for a festive Christmas dinner, but they’ll go perfectly with a cozy sweater and sneakers too. I don’t know about you, but when I shop, I try to envision all the ways I can wear an item to ensure I’m making a good purchase. These definitely were a good purchase, and I plan on wearing them again tomorrow!
I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! XO, MS

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends! I spent a few days with my family in Memphis and then met Henry in Houston to be with his. Every year, Henry’s family hosts a Christmas Eve party, which I, of course, had fun dressing up for. I wore this pearl embellished velvet dress and added a silver slingback, a black bow and some sparkly earrings to complete my Christmas Eve look. You could also wear a black pump for something a little simpler. As we approach New Year’s Eve, you may have another opportunity to dress up, so I highly recommend this velvet number or the others I linked below.
Here are a few other party-ready options: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Happy shopping and happy new year!

It’s party time!!! If you haven’t been to a Christmas party yet this season, I’m sure there’s one on your horizon. Plus! New Year’s Eve is just around the corner, so it’s time for us to get dressed up. I loved wearing this cut out dress to a NYE themed party last month – such a statement without being over the top! You don’t have to wear red or green but wear something with a little sparkle or texture during this festive season. I linked a few of my favorite holiday-ready dresses if you’re still on the hunt.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday season! XO, MS

Meet my new favorite dress! Isn’t she fantastic? When I came upon this dress, I knew I had to have her and would find an occasion for her later. We had our friends’ wedding this weekend in Virginia, and this was the first thing I packed.
A big part of building my wardrobe has been mixing high and low pieces. Not everything has to be a name brand or of a certain price point, but instead, I focus on purchasing things I absolutely love and filling in the gaps with less expensive items. For example, I splurged on this dress but found these simple gold heels and this fun bag at great prices to complete my look. I can’t wait to wear this again!
Thanks for stopping by! XO, MS
