I love a bright colored midi dress for summer! They are great for brunches with friends, backyard cookouts and happy hours on the patio. I got this one a few weeks ago from Zara, but of course, it looks like it has already sold out. I’ve linked some of my other favorites below, and guess what?? They’re all below $200!

Y’all have most likely seen this dress before on the blog, but if not, I’ll give you a little background. I worked at Tibi in New York the summer before my senior year of college. Of course, I fell in love with the brand, and my obsession began. I bought this dress that summer, so every time I wear it, I think of that fun experience!

16 tops to wear with white jeans

IMG_3490.jpg

We all know that white jeans are a staple for the spring and summer, so I’m highlighting some of my favorite tops to style with them. You can wear almost anything with your white jeans. Just think of them as a blank canvas! You can style an all white look, pair them with your brightest floral, your softest pastel or a structured black blazer for four completely different outfits. As you can see, I love a feminine blouse, so that’s what is mainly shown below!

My favorite denim shorts

Y’all must have these denim shorts!! They couldn’t be more comfortable or have a better fit. First of all, I love the length. You won’t have to worry about your hinny hanging out. I also love that they are fitted in the waist but roomier in the thigh. I can’t stand a tight denim short. I’ve been searching for the perfect pair for seasons and finally found these shorts last weekend. I’ve linked the exact pair, so you can get your own. They run big, so make sure you order a size down! Let me know if you have any questions!!

White Embroidered Dress

A tale of white spring and summer dresses continues… This theme started Easter Sunday and continues with this look. I mentioned last week that I have been drawn to neutrals, and this is a prime example. Something about a white dress feels fresh to me. It’s nothing new, but I guess after wearing relatively dark colors through the fall and winter, this is a nice change! I will be posting more white dresses soon!

Lace Everything

I’ve found myself being drawn to neutrals this spring – from my new espadrilles, to sundresses and statement earrings. I picked up this top and skirt from consignment stores in Dallas and Miami. Y’all know how much I love consignment shopping and the thrill I get from a deal! The top and skirt originally retailed for around $700 together, but I paid $175 for the look. I’ll give myself a pat on the back for that one :). The top I’ve already worn a handful of times with jeans and shorts. I’ll continue to keep it in my rotation this spring and summer, and I’m excited to style this skirt in other ways too!

Thanks for stopping by! I’ve linked my exact skirt above. Below I’ve added some other skirts with greater size runs, so you can recreate my look! Many on SALE!!!

I LOVE espadrille wedges! Truly, I can’t get enough of them. I wear my classic J. Crew espadrilles (1 and 2) all the time, so I decided to invest in another pair for spring and summer. The sole is squishy, and the platform allows for all day comfort. If you’re looking for a new pair of sandals, these are a great option! I’m wearing a 39 and am a solid 8 in almost all shoes.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Floral Midi Dress

I love midi dresses!!! Why? I don’t really know. Maybe because a midi allows for more dress detail while still showing off your shoes?! My mom calls me Laura Ingalls Wilder when I show up in a long dress, and honestly, sometimes I wish I was frolicking through a field. You can shop this dress on sale by clicking the link above!!

Easter Sunday

IMG_3437

| dress | earrings | clutch | espadrilles |

He is risen indeed! I hope everyone had a happy Easter with family and friends. I was in Memphis this weekend, and I had to best time with Henry, my fam and high school friends. I LOVE being home with my people!

My dress is 55% off, and it looks like you can get another 20% off from the site! Most sizes are still available, but I’m not sure how long the promotions will last. These shoes are my favorites from last year, so I linked this year’s version. An ivory lace dress and a wedge espadrille won’t go out of style, so you won’t regret purchasing these spring and summer staples! Not to mention, BOTH are amazingly comfortable.
