We celebrated our dear friend, Tegan, Wednesday who is headed off to Chicago to earn her MBA from Northwestern! GO girl! Kellogg is lucky to have you. We surprised her with a picnic on SMU’s Dallas Hall lawn. It was so special to bring everything full circle and to wish her well! Tegan, you better come back to us!!!

Colorful Safari Printed Dress

I am loving the unique and colorful pattern of this dress – it just makes me smile! Henry and I went to a casual birthday party Saturday night in Houston, and this was the perfect outfit for an outdoor hangout. I forgot just how hot Texas summers are! The night was filled with cake, corn hole and downtown views, and the perfect start to the summer.

I will definitely elevate this dress with these gold heels and a clutch for a fancier summer party or date night.

I hope you have a great week, and thanks for stopping by! XO, MS

Red and blue summer dress

You know red and blue are a favorite color combo of mine! You can celebrate America’s independence and cheer for the ponies at the same time. I see myself wearing this dress again on July 4th and then for an SMU football game this fall! Crossing my fingers that those still happen… I hope you add this fun summer dress to your closet!

Thanks for stopping by, friends! XO, MS

The perfect summer dress

This might be my favorite dress of the summer! It’s extremely lightweight and flowy – perfect for those crazy hot days ahead. The ruffled shoulder and collar plus the bright pattern make me so happy. I’ll wear it with sneakers, wedges and sandals depending on the day.

Also, my sunglasses are on MAJOR sale, so be sure to check those out! I’ve worn them for the last year and a half – 5 star review!

I wish I had available space in my apartment because one of these bad boys would be coming home with me! Numbers 1 and 11 are my favorites, but you can’t go wrong with any of these neutral pieces. Especially since they are all under $500! Add a bright patterned pillow, and these are ready to be enjoyed. Shoutout to Target for these fabulous furniture finds!

Tie Dye cont.

Okay so we got this tie dye sweatshirt in at work and I just had to… Last week I said I was going to try to keep my tie dye purchases to a minimum, and I’ve already failed! This sweatshirt is SUPER cozy and the perfect cropped length for high waisted shorts and jeans. Unfortunately, I can’t find this exact one online, so I’ve linked similar options. I hope you find one you like! Also, my sunglasses are on major sale, so I suggest you take a look at those as well!

Happy Memorial Day! XO, MS

To Tie Dye For

IMG_5015 2

| tee | jeans | headband | sandals |

Are you loving the tie dye trend?! Because I am! I’ve sprinkled tie dye into my wardrobe in a few ways: a workout top, a sweatsuit and this tee. I’m trying not to go overboard, but the bright colors are hard to resist. I’ve had friends make their own tie dye pieces too which have all turned out really cute (using a kit by this brand.)

This tee is the perfect cropped length for any of your high waisted shorts and pants. I’ve even paired it with a white tennis skirt for after dinner walks. How have you incorporated tie dye into your wardrobe?

I hope you have a safe and healthy weekend! XO, MS

Red Ruffled Dress

red dresses: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15

You know I gravitate toward red and blue with SMU games in mind. When I saw this dress, I knew it would be great for football games (crossing my fingers those still happen) with a pair of booties and a denim jacket. I’ll wear it all summer with sandals and wedges too. I found these wedges in my closet from high school, a treasure! Both the dress and the wedges were purchased locally, so I don’t have links. Above you’ll find similar options!

Happy Friday! XX, MS

Top 12 most worn spring & summer items

Screen Shot 2020-05-12 at 6.05.36 PM

Happy Wednesday, my friends! I feel like things are slowly getting back to normal – hallelujah! My family and I went out to dinner this weekend for Mother’s Day at a new place in Memphis called Porch and Parlor. If you’re in town, you need to try it, and I suggest ordering the fontina and truffle mashed potatoes, delish!

Today, I wanted to share my top 12 most worn spring and summer items from over the years. Most of these pieces are classics and go together, nothing too trendy you’ll feel silly wearing seasons to come. Some are splurges, but like I said, you will be wearing these items over and over again. When trying to decide if something is worth splurging on, I look at cost per wear. The more you wear the item, the lower your cost per wear will be.
