My everyday necklace stack

IMG_6346

| pearl | silver | similar gold |

I have been asked a few times recently about the three necklaces I wear everyday, so I thought I would share this with everyone! I’m a very sentimental person, so naturally each piece holds meaning and memories.

First, I received the pearl necklace from my parents when I graduated from the 6th grade. All of my childhood friends were heading in different directions as we started new schools, but we all held a special bond. Then my parents gifted me the silver diamond necklace when I graduated from high school. This necklace represents a wonderful childhood in Memphis, and the change that was ahead, college. Lastly, Henry gave me the gold diamond necklace that I spotted in an Austin, TX boutique, and he surprised me with it on our one year anniversary. I’ve realized that he’s always listening even when I think he’s not!

And YES, they get tangled, so if you have any nifty tricks to keep this from happening, I’m all ears!

In this week’s Friday Finds, I’m going to share some necklaces that I think would be great for layering, so that you can create your own everyday stack. Be on the look out!

Neutral Linen Dress

| dress: 1, 2, 3 | purse | headband | earrings |

I’m throwing it back to Mexico in July where it was as hot as it is in Dallas today. The heat seems to linger here. And because it does, I keep my summer clothes in rotation. As we inch through September, I’ll start to pair some of my favorite summer dresses with camel booties and the occasional denim jacket. This is a great way to get more wear out of what you’ve got!

Happy Monday! xo, MS

White after Labor Day

| top | jeans | sandals | bag | sunglasses |

Y’all have seen me style this striped top with the matching pant here, so I wanted to show you another way to wear it especially since it’s on clearance right now! Because the top is slightly cropped, I styled it with my high waisted white jeans. Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t wait wear white after Labor Day because you CAN! Imagine these jeans with a cozy sweater and an ankle bootie in the fall! Cute, right?! If you follow me in the liketoknow.it app, then you also saw that my sandals are on sale too! Get these deals while they are still available!

Happy Humpday!

White Eyelet Ruffles

| blouse (other) | jeans | sandals | headband | bag | sunglasses |

I live for white blouses… Not sure why but they are one of my favorite things to buy! Maybe because they go with everything or because they don’t go out of style? I’m not sure, but I love them! This blouse in a new addition I picked up from a local Dallas boutique, but I linked it above. It’s on sale, too! Style it with colored denim and an ankle bootie as we head into fall!

Happy Labor Day! I hope you enjoy your day off!!

Black + White Combo

| dressmaxi version | vest | slides | bag |

Black and white – a classic combo that you can dress up or down! I don’t have this exact dress linked because I purchased it a year or so ago, but I linked a dress by the same designer in the same fabric! Slip dresses are everywhere, so recreate my look with some of the others I found! Don’t forget to layer the white vest on top for a day to night look.

 Slip dresses: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Wedding Guest

| dress | heels: save or splurge | clutch |

A couple weeks back, I gave y’all two tips to consignment shopping. I mentioned a beautiful dress I found with no special occasion in mind. I scored a great price and couldn’t leave the store without it! Well, this is the dress, and sure enough, we had a wedding to attend a couple of months later!

I linked my exact dress on a consignment website, so you can score a similar deal!

Happy Wednesday, and thanks for stopping by!

My graduation dress

Here I am resurrecting my college graduation dress! I love it as much as I did when I wore it two years ago. The details made this a special dress for a special occasion. I’ve linked similar options plus my dress in navy, so check them out! You’re probably wondering if you can wear white after labor day, and yes, you most definitely can! Don’t let silly rules determine if and when you can wear some of your favorite pieces.

Happy Monday! Search your closet for an oldie but a goodie!

Consignment Find

IMG_5684

| dress | jacket | sneakers | sunglasses |

I’m featuring another consignment find today! I’d say $27 isn’t bad for a $300 dress! The keys to consignment shopping are visiting the stores fairly often and not going shopping with a certain goal in mind. Maybe a budget, but I try not to go into a consignment store looking for a specific item! Most likely you won’t find it! You never know what you’ll find, so you have to go in with an open mind!

Back in the spring I found a beautiful Self Portrait dress that I knew would be perfect for a wedding. I didn’t have one on the calendar yet, but it sure did come in handy for a wedding I had a couple of weeks ago. If you love something and it’s a great price, I’d purchase it because it most likely won’t be there the next time you’re shopping. Of course, my advice can get you in trouble too, so keep your budget in mind!!

Animal print midi skirts

animal print midis: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Get ready because you’re about to see a lot more animal print this fall! It’s a trend that you can incorporate into your wardrobe now through the cooler months, and this skirt is a great example of that. I styled it with a lightweight blouse and loafers for a 100+ degree work day, but once things cool off, I’ll pair it with my coziest sweater and booties. Style the skirt for a night out with a black leather jacket and a block heel. Don’t you love the versatility of this skirt?! I linked a few more animal print midis for y’all to check out! Find the perfect one for you!

Happy Monday, friends! Thanks for stopping by!
