Pleated Cut Out Maxi Dress

| dress | heels | earrings | watch | clutch | lips | curling iron | necklace |

Can you tell these are my favorite party shoes?! They go with everything and are perfect for any time of year. I was hesitant to splurge on these heels 8 months ago, but I’ve already worn them countless times! They even look great with jeans and a top, styled here. If you have an event coming up, snag this dress too while it’s still on major sale!

Thanks for stopping by, friends!

Light Blue Lace Dress

Another beautiful couple is married! My girl, May, married her guy, William this weekend in Memphis. What a joy it was to be a part of their intimate ceremony. New and old friends gathered to celebrate them, and I walked away realizing just how loved they are and how well they love others. Cheers to the Clinkscales!

I bought this dress awhile back, so I linked similar dresses by the same designer. I also linked this exact dress on consignment sites.

I hope you are able to get dressed up soon!

Rehearsal Dinner Dress

Business in the front. PARTY IN THE BACK!

How fun is this dress?! I wore it last weekend to a rehearsal dinner, and it was perfectly breathable for cocktail hour outside and comfortable enough for the seated dinner inside. The construction of this dress is beautiful – from the pleats and the bouncy ruffles to the low back. I’m reminded of the book Always Pack a Party Dress because this IS the ultimate party dress!

Thanks for letting me relive last weekend! XO, MS

P.S. This dress is on sale, so grab it if you do indeed have a party coming up. Maybe get if you don’t because we will inevitably have parties once again.

Bridal Luncheon Dress

This dress makes me happy! The bright colors, the ruffles and the puff sleeves are details I’m drawn to when shopping, and this dress has them all. I linked it above at a few different retailers that have it in varying sizes and price points.

I wore this outfit Friday for a dear friend’s bridal luncheon. A delicious meal at Al Biernat’s was the perfect way to kick off her wedding weekend! If only we could do it all over again!!

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be sharing my rehearsal dinner dress soon. XO, MS

White ruffles and distressed denim

A white blouse and jeans won’t ever go out of style. I snagged this top over a month ago, and it’s quickly become one of my favorites. In my opinion, you can never have too many white blouses, so if you have room in your closet, this might be a great piece for you. I wore it here with shorts for a more casual look. Dress it up, dress it down and wear it year round!

Happy Monday, friends! XO, MS

Custom Tie Dye Sweatshirt

How stinking cute is this custom tie dye sweatshirt?! I chose to have my name embroidered in rainbow thread and then added yellow stars which complement the yellow tie dye perfectly! I’m obsessed with all of Created by Eliza’s designs, and I think you will be too. Head over to her Instagram to check out what else she’s created. All you have to do is complete an order form, and she will ship your sweatshirt in no time!

A Neutral Look

When I think of summer outfits, I usually think of bright colors and patterns, but every once and awhile it’s nice to break out a more neutral look. I love this dress because while you can wear it now, you can also wear it this fall with cognac booties and a denim jacket or moto jacket.

My mom bought this dress for herself, but lucky for me, it didn’t work for her. You can snag it on sale using the link above!

I hope you have a great weekend!! XO, MS

Happy Thursday! This is one of my favorite tops from last summer! Although it’s not available anymore, I found similar tops, so you can recreate my look. These jeans have the perfect amount of distressing, a great relaxed fit and the works for all seasons! Give them a try!!

You can’t go wrong with eyelet and white jeans in the summer, and they are even better together!

I’m happy to be back in Dallas after two weeks away! Vacation is wonderful and these trips were amazing, but I do love a routine. I traveled to the Snowmass/Aspen area with Henry’s family, to Watersound beach with high school friends and finally to Park City for a bachelorette celebration! I’m thankful for this time with some of my favorite people! For more photos and outfit details from these trips, visit my instagram!

P.S. I’m going to share our favorite restaurants from Aspen in an upcoming post.

It was very hard to say goodbye to Watersound and my high school ladies!! What a trip to remember. Lots of laughs, good food and lazy beach days! Restaurants are pretty casual along 30A, so I paired this poplin blouse with a pair of my favorite denim shorts and these fringed espadrilles for drinks at The Pearl hotel and dinner at George’s. I hope to get back down there soon!
