Hawaii Look #5

dresses: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

This is my final round up from our honeymoon on Lanai (insert crying emoji)! I don’t get to relive this trip with y’all anymore, but I appreciate you being on this journey with me. It’s been fun! Can you believe I’m not wearing a puffy sleeve? Somehow every other outfit I packed incorporated this trend. Cleary I like it! This dress is by one of my new favorite designers, and unfortunately, it’s almost sold out. BUT next to dresses, I linked ten of my other favorites from this line, so check them out! There are casual dresses all the way to cocktail – something for all your needs. I think you’re going to love them too!

P.S. Look at the lobby of our hotel! Isn’t it stunning? I hope we make it back one day!

Ta ta for now! XO, MS

Hawaii Look #4

| dress others: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 | headband | earrings | espadrilles | bag: 1, 2, 3, 4 |

Hello from Hawaii again! Today, I’m sharing my fourth look of the trip and what might be my favorite. It’s hard for me to resist a puffy sleeve, as you can tell from my last three honeymoon looks. I love this dress for many reasons, but I really appreciate when a piece can be worn a variety of ways. I can wear this with a dressy heel and clutch for a summer wedding or dress it down with a pair of sneakers and my hair in a ponytail. Your options are endless with a piece like this! Check out the other dresses I love from this brand that I linked above.

These shoes have been another favorite spring/summer purchase of mine, and they’ve clearly been a favorite of y’alls. I love seeing how many of you have purchased them! Aren’t they comfortable?! And they for sure go with everything! If you haven’t tried these, you should.

Hawaii Look #3

If I could go back to this day, I would! We were about to set sail on the Four Seasons’ beautiful catamaran for a sunset cruise around Lanai. One thing Henry and I were so impressed with and continue to talk about was the service we experienced while on the island. Every single person that we came in contact with who worked for the resort was so incredibly happy to be there and to help us with anything we may have needed. Yes, Henry and I enjoyed the scenery and being on the boat, but we also enjoyed getting to know the captain and the deckhands. What fun they were to be around and how cool it was to learn about their island life. The service definitely made our trip!

Note, I wore my hair in a braid to keep the wispies out of my face and wore shorts to make sure I didn’t have a Marilyn moment! In retrospect, I’m glad I made both choices.

Thanks for reliving our honeymoon with me! XO, MS

Hawaii Look #2

| top | pants | heels | earrings | clutch |

Oh, Hawaii, you were a dream. These photos were taken on my “perch” – where I sat everyday of our honeymoon, read my book and ate delicious food. There were umbrellas, comfy lounge chairs and endless amounts of sunshine to get the tan you desired. If only we could go back right now!

I wore this white jeweled set one night for dinner, and it was a big hit. Not only did I feel like a bride, but I was also super comfy in it. I would recommend it if you’re headed anywhere warm because it’s super lightweight too. I love that this top and pant combo look fabulous together but can also be worn separately to create totally different looks. Dress down the top with a pair of distressed jeans, and dress up the pants with a fun silk blouse. Your options are endless!

Do you like matching sets?!

Hawaii Look #1

| blouse | shorts | earrings | headband | clutch | heels: tall & short |

What a week in Hawaii! Henry and I are ready to go back to Lanai asap. It was the most relaxing and serene place – the perfect spot to wind down after a busy wedding season. I’m excited to show you some of the outfits I wore both in Hawaii and throughout the wedding weekend, but first, let me tell you about some of the things we did.

We rode the Four Seasons’ catamaran twice. Once for a sunset cruise and another time for a snorkeling adventure. We loved getting to see the island from a different perspective and of course, being on the water on such a beautiful boat. We also hiked a couple of times, got massages and ate way too much food. I made a few new friends too – an octopus and two parrots. If you get the chance to visit Lanai, Henry and I highly recommend it!

Before I left Dallas for the wedding and honeymoon, I splurged on this printed blouse from a local boutique. I paired it back to these easy white shorts, my favorite pearl accessories and my go-to gold bow heels. These heels truly go with everything!! Every single one of the pieces I’m wearing can be worn a variety of ways, so if you’re looking to add a couple of items to your spring and summer wardrobe, I suggest these.

Thanks for stopping by! I look forward to sharing more with you.

Floral Romper

| romper | sandals: here & here | headband | earrings | bag | necklace: save & splurge |

What a fun weekend I had with my girls! We met at the beach for my bachelorette, and although it rained the majority of the weekend, we still had a blast. We ate delicious meals at fun restaurants along 30A, played hilarious games and spent as much time outside as we could. One of my favorite parts was getting to see my home and college friends get to know each other. I can’t wait to be with them again in just one short month for the wedding day!

I wore this floral romper for dinner Saturday night at Cafe Thirty-A and one last hurrah at an old dive bar called AJ’s. It’s incredibly comfortable, and I love the open back. I tied the sash in the front, but you could definitely tie it in the back as well. This is such a fun piece for spring and summer, and I can’t wait to wear it again on our honeymoon. Don’t forget you can shop my entire look using the links above.

I hope you have a great week! XO, MS

Gift Guide for the Guys

Guys can be hard to buy for especially when they have everything. I love buying something that I know they wouldn’t buy for themselves. Personalized gifts are a great option because they show you put thought into your selection, and let’s be real, most guys aren’t going to spend the extra money on their own monogram. Below you’ll find some of my favorite gift ideas and some I’ll even be buying for my guys!

| hoodie & joggers | poker set | coffee table book |

| personalized glasses | suede loafers | AirPods case |

Henry has been told to avoid this blog post because it will give away some of his gifts! He loves the MLB and played baseball growing up, so I really think he’s going to enjoy looking through this coffee table book of old and new baseball parks. He also needs a new pair of loafers and updated athleisure.

| quilted jacket | quilted vest | rolling suitcase | canvas briefcase |

| personalized golf balls | camo slippers | accessories case |

If your guy loves to golf, he’s going to freak out over his very own personalized golf balls. Some people are still working from home, so a fresh pair of slippers paired back to the athleisure set above will be perfect for him. If he’s dreaming of travel, the accessories case and the rolling suitcase with be a great refresh.

I hope this post made your Christmas shopping a little easier this year! Let me know what you think! XO, MS

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!

Thanks for stopping by, friends!! XO, MS

Spending this week with my high school girls in one of my favorite places couldn’t make me happier! So far we’ve spent lazy days on the beach, brunched at Great Southern Cafe in Seaside and celebrated our girl Allie’s 26th birthday with pizza on the porch! I’m soaking up this sun and these friendships.
