Chelsea Booties

| similar blouse: 1 & 2 | similar vest: 1 & 2 | jeans | booties |

| bag | earrings | sunglasses |

I LOVE a deal! I call them steals and deals, and that’s the category these booties fall under. I had been eyeing them for awhile, and when I saw they were 50% off, I took the plunge. I was a little nervous since they were final sale, but I’m so glad I took the risk. The suede is beautiful, they are super comfortable, and I love the feminine touch the pearl studs add. Now you can get them for 60% off if you follow the link above!

The rest of my outfit is a combination of old and new, so I did my best to link what I could. Shop the links above to recreate my look!

P.S. This bag holds a lot more than you think, and these heart earrings are on sale!

Favorite Things of 2020

Today, I wanted to share some of my favorite things that I purchased or received in 2020. From loungewear to skincare and home goods, and many of the products I’m sharing are on sale!

Customizable tie dye sweatshirt

The tie dye trend is here to stay, so design your own hand dyed and hand embroidered sweatshirt by Eliza! I ordered a large for an oversized look.

Wrist & ankle weights

I go for a walk most days, and I feel like I’m getting a little extra work in when wearing these ankle and wrist weights. They come in 1 and 2 pound versions.

Printed headband

Y’all know how much I love headbands, and this one is no exception. I have found that these neutral colors go with almost everything. Worn here and here.

Tula set

I don’t know much about skincare, but I do know that I LOVE Tula products! They are constantly coming out with new products that keep your skin clean, fresh and healthy.

Fresh bath towels

These towels feel like a cloud! I don’t know what kind of towels I’ve been using all of my life, but these are a game changer. You can get free monogramming on their site now!

Heart earrings

Statement earrings – another accessory I love, and these are on sale! I wore these for our engagement shoot.

Leather bag

This bag is the perfect evening bag, and it fits more than you would think! Small wallet, phone, keys, lipstick, hand sanitizer, sunglasses and the list goes on.

Barefoot Dreams blanket

I live in this cozy blanket year round, and surprisingly it’s on sale! MOVE FAST.

1 inch curling iron

Since high school I’ve always curled my hair with a 1.5 to 2 inch curling iron, but I’ve started using the 1 inch for a tighter longer lasting curl. I also use this as a wand.

Snakeskin boots

My favorite boots ever!! I am so glad I splurged on these this fall, but lucky for you, they are on sale now.

Metallic leggings

I am super particular about my leggings, and these check all the boxes. Fitted but not too tight, they don’t sag and wear really well. These are also marked down!

Suede booties

A camel suede bootie is a classic shoe you will wear season after season. These look great with jeans, skirts and dresses! Worn here.

Leopard sweatshirt & joggers

I haven’t taken this cozy set off since Henry gave it to me!

Metallic Puffer Jacket

| jacket: 1 & 2 | pullover | jeans: 1 & 2 | headband |

| sneakers: 1 and 2 | sunglasses |

I know we are just a couple of weeks into 2021, but I have a feeling this metallic puffer is going to be one of my favorites pieces of the year. The color makes me happy and the material keeps me warm – great for someone who stays cold like me! It’s on sale, but hurry, because it is selling out fast.

Thanks for stopping by! XO, MS

Printed Dress + Snakeskin Boots

| dress: 1, 2, 3, 4 | boots | earrings: 1, 2, 3 | curling iron |

Dresses might be my favorite piece of clothing to wear, and this one is no exception. I love the colors, the pattern and of course, the puffy sleeves. It also comes in two other color-ways (linked above). You don’t have to wear a tall boot either, though these are on major sale! A flat bootie or a sneaker will look great too.

I hope this post inspired you to pull something out of your closet that you haven’t worn in awhile! Thanks for stopping by! XO, MS

Keeping things cozy in the New Year

Engagement Photos + Outfit Details

MS: | dress | boots: 1, 2, 3, 4 | earrings | curling iron |

H: | sport coat | shirt | jeans | boots |

Henry and I took our engagement photos in early November at SMU and Lakeside Park – both places we love and have spent a lot of time. We used Perez Photography, and we are so glad that we did. These photos turned out beautifully, and you would have never known Henry and I felt super awkward half the time! I don’t know about you, but I’m not used to being lovey-dovey in front of a camera.

I put a lot of thought into what I wanted to wear for these photos, and I purchased this dress with them in mind. On a typical day, I probably would’ve worn big earrings, a headband and maybe even layered a fur vest on top, but I knew I wanted something a bit more classic and clean for photos we would have forever. This dress felt feminine without being too overwhelming or detailed, and I love how the boots added texture.

MS: | sweater | shorts | earrings | booties |

H: | sweater | shirt | cords | shoes |

I knew we would have two outfits each, and I wanted one set to be a little more casual than the other. Here I chose to go with an all white theme, but I didn’t want to look summery. This ivory sweater with the lace sleeves was the perfect piece for the occasion, and I found a simple short to match. I completed the fall appropriate look with these suede booties I wear all the time.

If you are taking professional photos soon, whether they are engagement or for something else, choose an outfit that isn’t too busy and that complements you, not distracts. You will be the focus, not the clothes!

A few of my favorite accessories

| sweater | plaid shirts: 1, 2, 3 | jeans | booties | bag |

| earrings | sunglasses |

I’m highlighting a couple of small businesses today that I love. First up is The Pink Reef who designed the most fabulous turquoise earrings I’m wearing. They are super lightweight and perfect for any season. I can definitely see myself dressing them up with a cocktail dress too. Check out her site and the other beautiful earrings she has created. You may find a Christmas gift or two!

Next, I wanted to highlight this camo Parker Thatch tote that Henry gave to me for Christmas last year. It is such a useful bag – great for traveling, toting a laptop or just everyday use. It’s made of canvas too which makes it very durable! If you are looking for a great Christmas gift for a girl who loves purses, look no further than Parker Thatch!

I hope this post helped you with Christmas gifts this holiday season!

Happy Monday! xo, MS

Gift Guide for the Girls

Need gift ideas for your girls? Mamas, friends, girlfriends? I picked out everything from home decor to beauty depending on what your best gal loves!

| headband | stemless glasses | tiger coasters | pictures 1 & 2 |

| bow heels | leather bag |

Well, you know I love a headband. They are the best accessory and add such a fun pop of color and texture. They also make a great stocking stuffer! If your girl loves to host a get together, stemless wine glasses, colorful coasters and a print on the wall are perfect.

| pajamas | round brush hairdryer | face roller | beauty set | leggings |

| silk pillow case | wrist weights | hoodie & joggers | sneakers |

My new favorite thing is this set of wrist weights! I love a power walk, and these are the perfect addition. Add these leggings and funky sneakers to complete your workout look. Because many of yall are still working from home, shop this loungewear set to make working from home a little more fun and comfy.

| floral dress | eyeshadow palette | shawl | puffer jacket | sunglasses |

| jewelry case | headband | ginger jars |

I’m obsessed with this metallic bomber. How great would this be paired with jeans and a sweater or your go-to workout gear?! You could even layer it over the floral midi dress. One day I hope my home is accessorized with a few ginger gars, and maybe your girl does too.

I hope this post filled with a few of my favorite things helps you shop for your girls this holiday season! XO, MS

Dress + Sweater

| shirtdress: 1, 2, 3, 4 | sweater: 1, 2, 3, 4 | headband | mules: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 |

I love creating new outfits with old pieces. Each piece I’m wearing has been in my closet for at least a year, and in fact, I think I’ve had this shirtdress for four. You can count on a classic piece like this dress or this sweater to never go out of style. Sometimes the classics are worth spending a little bit more money on so that you get a quality piece that will last you for seasons.
