I usually go for brighter prints and patterns in the summer, but something about this navy garden toile caught my eye! Maybe because I have nothing like it… plus you can’t beat the price! How fab is it paired with my new Miron Crosby python boots?! I never would’ve thought a pair of cowboy boots would become a wardrobe staple for me, but since I added these to my closet, I’ve worn them with everything from denim shorts, to mini dresses and midi dresses. The neutral color allows me to pair them with almost everything! If you’re thinking of adding an investment piece to your wardrobe, make sure you choose an item that gives you some versatility.
Thanks for popping by! XO, MS

Doesn’t this floral dress scream vacation?! I was lucky enough to tag along on Henry’s work trip to Mexico, and this dress was perfect for our oceanside dinner. Linen is key for the hot temperatures here in Texas and in Mexico or wherever your travels may take you. Catch me in this dress all summer long with sandals, sneakers and heels. It’s one of those pieces you can easily elevate or make casual depending on your agenda!
I hope I’ve inspired you to add a colorful dress to your summer wardrobe. They definitely make me smile! XO, MS

What a fun weekend we had celebrating some dear friends’ engagement! It was also a great excuse to get back down to Texas, see family and friends and enjoy some warm weather and sunshine. We also celebrated our anniversary (again ha!) at a place called Turner’s known for an amazing wedge salad, a cozy environment and the best hospitality in town. We danced, tasted the most delicious food and now, I don’t think I can ever go back. We had the best time and nothing will be able to top it! If you find your way to Houston, put Turner’s at the top of your list, and if the wait staff tells you to get up and dance, just do it!
Thanks for stopping by! XO, MS

Dresses are my go-to in the summer, and I have a feeling this one is going to be a favorite all season long. I dressed it up for church yesterday, but I can also style it with sneakers or sandals for a more casual look. Yesterday was an extra special day because it was our first wedding anniversary. I decided to wear my wedding day heels which have been such a fun addition to my wardrobe, and clearly, they are perfect for more than just a wedding! I’ve gotten quite a bit of use out of these over the last 365 days. I try to buy pieces like these I know I will get a great deal of wear out of.
I hope you have a great start to your week and make smart purchases! XO, MS

Hi friends! I’m so bummed because this dress sold out almost immediately, but if you’re dying to get your hands on it, sign up for a restock notification. If you’re not willing to wait, I linked some other fun green dresses perfect for late spring and summer. I know I’ve said this before, but I’m loving all things green. Maybe because I’m so excited for all the flowers and greenery growing around me.
My jewelry, heels and bag are still available, so if you want to recreate my look, snag those! White accessories are a fresh way to update almost any look.

We spent the weekend in Houston which provided some much needed sunshine and warm weather! I saw a stat that over the last 43 days, we’ve seen 1 day of sunshine in Chicago – OMG!! The dull weather was definitely getting to me. H and I loved being with family and definitely feel refreshed after our time away. Sunshine is good for the soul!
I wore this printed dress for cocktail hour and out to dinner, and the linen material was perfect for the warm weather. I plan on wearing this over and over again all summer long dressed up and down.
Happy Monday, friends! Let’s make this week a good one. XO, MS

Let me tell you about the easiest summer dress! The lightweight material and the soft stripe are the perfect combination for all your summer activities. I paired it here with my go-to espadrille, but this dress will also be great with a flat sandal. You could even make this look more casual with a denim jacket. Wear this dress right into the fall with a camel leather jacket and bootie. If you can’t tell, I’m all about options and versatility!
Happy shopping, friends! XO, MS

I feel like the spring is usually full of events from weddings to Easter and Mother’s Day. Something’s always going on, so I found you the perfect dress for at least one of your upcoming events. I mean, if you’re a bride, you need this!! Blue and white toile is definitely a favorite of mine in home decor and clothing, and on this dress, it’s fab! All you need are a pair of simple heels and a dainty earring to complete the look. Happy spring!

It’s always a great time when one of your best friends gets married! Henry and I were both in the wedding and loved celebrating the happy couple. Not to mention, the Oregon wine country is just beautiful! I wore this light blue dress for the rehearsal dinner that was hosted at Tumwater Vineyard – tasty wines and stunning scenery. My parents, H and I were also able to sneak away to Domaine Serene Winery for another tasting. If you ever find yourself in Portland, I definitely recommend visiting these two spots!
I hope everyone had a lovely Easter! XO, MS

Spring calls for colorful dresses to match the blooming flowers! I ordered a few dresses for upcoming events, and this one was too good not to share. I love that the self-belt cinches your waist while the skirt and sleeves are still flowy. I styled the dress with gold jewelry and neutral accessories to complete the perfect brunch, Easter Sunday or bridal shower look.
Thanks for stopping by, friends! XO, MS
