Puffy sleeves and an open back

| dress | others I love: 1, 2, 3, 4 | heels | bag | earrings | necklaces: 1, 2 |

Sometimes you come across a piece that you just have to have. You have nowhere to wear it and definitely don’t need it, but it’s coming home with you. That’s how I felt when I came across this dress. I had been eyeing it for awhile, but when I recently saw that it went on sale, I pulled the trigger.

Once I put it on, I realized that I could dress it up or down. You don’t need a special occasion after all! Last Saturday night I wore it to our favorite Mexican restaurant in town, Javier’s, but you could totally wear it to a summer wedding as well!

I’m realizing that I have so many clothes that I love but feel I need a “special occasion” to wear them. But why? I need to wear what makes me happy and feel good! Put on the dress you’ve been saving, gals, and have some fun!

This is the second dress I received from Confete, and I’m in love! (The first one is linked here.) It’s the perfect lightweight linen material for our hot Dallas days and nights. I paired it with tan sandals and a rattan bag for an easy on-the-go look. Of course, you can also dress this piece up with an espadrille or a strappy heel for dinner. Before you go, don’t forget to check out the other Confete pieces I linked in the post mentioned above!

I want to introduce you guys to a retailer I recently discovered! Confete will be your new go-to for all things event related and bride-worthy. They have the best daytime and event-ready dresses that you’re going to love plus swimwear, separates and accessories. I love that they carry a variety of price points too. I snagged this white maxi dress from them along with another dress I’m going to share later this week. I feel like I live in dresses during the summer, so when I stumbled across this versatile piece, I couldn’t resist. Below I’m going to share some of my other Confete favorites.

Garden Floral Dresses

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.

Retro Floral Mini Dress

| dress | espadrilles | bag | earrings & necklace: use code MARYSANFORD15 |

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

A Coral Floral Midi Dress

| dress | sandals | bag | earrings | headband | necklace |

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!

Green Striped Dress + My Wedding Heels

| dress | heels | earrings | bracelet | straw clutches: 1, 2, 3, 4 |

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

Green Floral Midi dress

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.

Floral Mini Dress

| earrings | necklace (use code MARYSANFORD15 | bracelet |

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
