Green Striped Dress + My Wedding Heels

| dress | heels | earrings | bracelet | straw clutches: 1, 2, 3, 4 |

Dresses are my go-to in the summer, and I have a feeling this one is going to be a favorite all season long. I dressed it up for church yesterday, but I can also style it with sneakers or sandals for a more casual look. Yesterday was an extra special day because it was our first wedding anniversary. I decided to wear my wedding day heels which have been such a fun addition to my wardrobe, and clearly, they are perfect for more than just a wedding! I’ve gotten quite a bit of use out of these over the last 365 days. I try to buy pieces like these I know I will get a great deal of wear out of.

I hope you have a great start to your week and make smart purchases! XO, MS

Hi friends! I’m so bummed because this dress sold out almost immediately, but if you’re dying to get your hands on it, sign up for a restock notification. If you’re not willing to wait, I linked some other fun green dresses perfect for late spring and summer. I know I’ve said this before, but I’m loving all things green. Maybe because I’m so excited for all the flowers and greenery growing around me.

My jewelry, heels and bag are still available, so if you want to recreate my look, snag those! White accessories are a fresh way to update almost any look.

Thanks for stopping by! XO, MS

Floral Mini Dress

We spent the weekend in Houston which provided some much needed sunshine and warm weather! I saw a stat that over the last 43 days, we’ve seen 1 day of sunshine in Chicago – OMG!! The dull weather was definitely getting to me. H and I loved being with family and definitely feel refreshed after our time away. Sunshine is good for the soul!

I wore this printed dress for cocktail hour and out to dinner, and the linen material was perfect for the warm weather. I plan on wearing this over and over again all summer long dressed up and down.

Happy Monday, friends! Let’s make this week a good one. XO, MS

Striped Summer Dress

| dress | espadrilles | straw bag | necklace 1 & 2 | earrings | bracelet |

Let me tell you about the easiest summer dress! The lightweight material and the soft stripe are the perfect combination for all your summer activities. I paired it here with my go-to espadrille, but this dress will also be great with a flat sandal. You could even make this look more casual with a denim jacket. Wear this dress right into the fall with a camel leather jacket and bootie. If you can’t tell, I’m all about options and versatility!

Happy shopping, friends! XO, MS

I feel like the spring is usually full of events from weddings to Easter and Mother’s Day. Something’s always going on, so I found you the perfect dress for at least one of your upcoming events. I mean, if you’re a bride, you need this!! Blue and white toile is definitely a favorite of mine in home decor and clothing, and on this dress, it’s fab! All you need are a pair of simple heels and a dainty earring to complete the look. Happy spring!

Light blue wedding guest dress

It’s always a great time when one of your best friends gets married! Henry and I were both in the wedding and loved celebrating the happy couple. Not to mention, the Oregon wine country is just beautiful! I wore this light blue dress for the rehearsal dinner that was hosted at Tumwater Vineyard – tasty wines and stunning scenery. My parents, H and I were also able to sneak away to Domaine Serene Winery for another tasting. If you ever find yourself in Portland, I definitely recommend visiting these two spots!

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter! XO, MS

Spring Sundress

Spring calls for colorful dresses to match the blooming flowers! I ordered a few dresses for upcoming events, and this one was too good not to share. I love that the self-belt cinches your waist while the skirt and sleeves are still flowy. I styled the dress with gold jewelry and neutral accessories to complete the perfect brunch, Easter Sunday or bridal shower look.

| dress | sandals + others: 1, 2, 3 | necklace: 1 & 2 (code: SANFORD20) |

| bracelets: 1, 2, 3 | earrings | sunglasses | similar bags: 1, 2 |

Introducing the perfect summer dress, and it’s even more perfect for all you brides out there. I got this dress because it reminded me of a few Zimmermann dresses I love, but it’s a fraction of the price. I found the quality to be great, and I love that the back is adjustable. It will work for a variety of bust sizes! I added some colorful accessories and a sandal, and we were off to a boat ride in San Diego. Now, I just wish it would warm up in Chicago, so I can wear it here!

Thanks for stopping by! I really appreciate all of your support! XO, MS

Tiered Midi Skirt

Hi friends! I shared this skirt briefly with you guys a week or so ago, but I wanted to share with you how I would style it for warmer weather. In Chicago, I styled this skirt with a cream sweater and a pair of booties because, yes, it’s still cold, but in San Diego, I had the opportunity to style it for the warmer weather. I tucked my go-to white tee into the tiered midi skirt and layered a denim jacket on top. I then added by favorite gold accessories, of course, a headband and a pair of espadrilles. Who knew this skirt would be such a great transitional piece?!

Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway I posted on Instagram!
