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

| dress | heels | bag | earrings | curling iron (20% off code: FAMILY20) |

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

| dress | heels | similar bag | earrings code: MARYSANFORD15 |

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.

White cut out dress

| 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!

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?!

Floral Cut Out Dress

| dress | heels | bag | earrings |

This might be the dress of my dreams! The bright colors, feminine print and edgy cut outs make this a unique piece for your warm weather vacations and the summer ahead. It would be great for an elevated casual event too! I wore this out in Mexico for a friend’s bachelorette, and I also plan on wearing it in San Diego when Henry and I head there for spring break. And yes, I realize this dress is a splurge, but I purchased with a few events in mind. I know I’m going to wear this quite a few times over the next six months.

If you’re looking for a less expensive purchase, this woven bag and these platform heels are fabulous. Both can be worn with SO much. This woven bag has Bottega vibes but of course for a fraction of the price. The platform heels remind me of a YSL heel I’ve been eyeing. You will wear both of these all spring and summer long.

I’m ready for warm weather! Are you?

Oh So Orange

Oh, how wonderful it was to be in the sunshine this past weekend. Puerto Vallarta, I’ll be back. I knew I needed to pack colorful pieces because my wardrobe has been filled with neutrals this cold winter season. To top off this bright orange dress, I accessorized with colorful jewels by Elsie Frieda. If you love them like I do, shop using the promo code SANFORD20 for 20 percent off your purchase.

Do you have any fun trips ahead?!
