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.

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!

Blue Floral Jumpsuit

Happy Wednesday, friends! This jumpsuit makes me happy and so does this 75 degree weather here in Colorado! It’s going to be hard to leave that’s for sure. Highlight from the trip so far has been our horseback riding adventure through the mountains – beautiful animals and views! My horse, Big Annie, earned her name because sister loved to eat.

Shop the jumpsuit while it’s on major sale and your size is still left! I would recommend ordering your normal size.

Floral Dress for Fall

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!

My go-to carry-on suitcase

IMG_1522

| carry-on suitcase |

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!

Camo Pants

Happy Humpday!!! You’ll notice a lot of what I’m wearing here are pieces that you’ve seen before just styled a different way! I feel like versatility is key for this time in my life because I don’t have tons of money to spend on new clothes every month. I have a lot of fun reworking the pieces in my closet, and I hope to inspire you to create new looks with what you already have. Sprinkling in a new piece can go a long way when you’re smart about what you buy.

I purchased these camo pants during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this summer, and lucky for you, they are on sale again! Camo is trending this fall, so why not let this be the piece you add to your closet. You’ll be surprised by how much goes with them – especially items you already have!! Think white eyelet tops (shown above) and blue striped shirts while temps are still high, and don’t be afraid to pattern mix. Once the cooler weather hits, style these pants with a chambray, cozy sweaters in almost ANY solid color, and leather moto jackets. I can’t wait to see how you style these bad boys!!

Neutral Linen Dress

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

Go-to Combo

IMG_4852

| tee | shorts | headband | sandals |

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!
