You know I love ruffles, so the fact that I love this dress shouldn’t surprise you! It just makes me happy. It also allowed me to eat lots of yummy food on vacation! No tight clothes here!!
Henry and I spent the week in Colorado with his family, and we had a blast. The fact that we could walk outside and not instantly sweat was life giving. We hiked, rode horses and enjoyed the delicious food and adorable restaurants in Aspen. I can’t wait to go back!
Thanks for stopping by! XO, MS

I remember looking at my parents’ wedding photos and not understanding why my mom would’ve chosen a dress with such poofy sleeves! Here I am wearing a similar style 31 years later. I feel like it’s true that most trends do come back around.
I love this dress for the fall and spring! The abstract floral pattern plus the redish pink color work with camel suede booties and with strappy sandals. Of course I had to add a headband too!
Happy Monday, friends, and thanks for stopping by!
P.S. Happy early 31st anniversary mom and dad!

I just got back from Portugal a week ago with two of my gal pals, and I only brought a carry-on and my everyday tote! Are you impressed?! As a girl who loves clothes, I impressed myself! I wouldn’t say I’m a nervous traveler (Henry would beg to differ), but I don’t always trust airlines with my luggage especially when I’m traveling somewhere I don’t have back-up clothing. Aka going home to Memphis to my mom’s closet… So maybe I am a nervous traveler! I do like to get to the airport with plenty of time to spare too.
For this trip, I wanted to make sure I only packed things I would be excited to wear. That may sound weird, but there’s no need to add the fluff if I won’t reach for it! This helped me narrow down what I brought. I included 4 pairs of shoes: sandals and sneakers for daytime, wedges for dinners and tennis shoes for outdoor activities. I packed a handful of dresses because those are one and done outfits that take up little space in your suitcase. I also included a pair of white jeans and denim shorts and many tops to go with both. This made styling for day and night really easy – all I had to do was swap my bottom and change my shoe.
I hope this inspired you to pack a little lighter for your next vacation!

I’m throwing it back to Mexico in July where it was as hot as it is in Dallas today. The heat seems to linger here. And because it does, I keep my summer clothes in rotation. As we inch through September, I’ll start to pair some of my favorite summer dresses with camel booties and the occasional denim jacket. This is a great way to get more wear out of what you’ve got!
Happy Monday! xo, MS

This has been my go-to look this summer! Whether I’m hanging with Henry, running errands or traveling, this has been an easy and comfortable look to put together. You can wear this tee year round too, and get excited because camo is a trend for fall! I’m still loving the headband trend for many reasons, but it most importantly keeps my hair out of my face.
Every single one of these pieces will be a staple for you and pair back to a lot of what you already have in your wardrobe! You can’t go wrong with denim shorts, a cotton tee and a solid headband!
