Bridesmaids Luncheon

| earrings | slip | headband: 1, 2, 3, 4 | ribbon | heels |

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

I am loving reliving our wedding weekend through the pictures family, friends and our photographer took. I got to wear my great grandmother’s wedding dress for my bridesmaids luncheon – an heirloom piece that was purchased in Paris in the 1890s. It has now been worn by my aunt and cousin too, and I can’t wait to see who wears it next. It was extra special for me because I was named after my great grandmother, Mary Sanford Myatt, who wore this in September of 1934. I made this dress my own by adding a blue velvet ribbon and of course, a headband. Light blue was a theme throughout the wedding, so I loved tying it in here too.

I wish I could get this group of girls together every weekend – love them!

Sharing more soon. XO, MS

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.

Wedding Guest Dresses

Wedding season is back, hallelujah! I feel for all the covid brides and grooms that had to alter or move their weddings over the last year. I’m hoping we are moving forward and can return to weddings of limited restrictions and lots of fun! Because I have quite a few weddings over the next few months, I thought I would share some of my favorite wedding guest dress options I’ve found. I love these happy colors and whimsical silhouettes – perfect for a celebration!

Let me know what yall think!

Bride Inspiration: white lace dress

| dress: here & here | espadrilles | clutch: 1, 2, 3 | earrings | necklace: steal & splurge |

| other white dresses: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 |

Y’all are probably tired of seeing me in white dresses by now, but don’t worry, in 25 days I’ll add a little more variety to my wardrobe! Hint hint wedding day is fast approaching! I found this dress on sale when Henry and I visited Chicago back in January, and I had to pounce. I have dreamed of wearing something by this designer during our engagement season, so I couldn’t pass this dress up. An extra special dress for an extra special season.

I wore this outfit on my bachelorette trip this weekend, and I definitely felt like a bride. Of course, the “soon-to-be bride” sash and veil helped – shout out to my moh, Margaret, for all the gear! Although this dress is almost sold out, I linked some other white dresses by this designer for you to check out. I hope you find something you love!

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

Floral blouse + headband

| top: here & here | jeans | espadrilles | headband | earrings | sunglasses | bag |

It’s funny because I used to never wear florals or busy prints other than stripes, and now I can’t stop buying them! I love that this top is slightly cropped so that it sits nicely at the top of high waisted jeans and my most narrow point. I find that shorter blouses are more flattering on my body type than those that hit at the top of the thigh. Style tip: if you have a smaller waist and bigger bum/thigh area, try out a shorter top to accentuate your waist. If you don’t have a shorter option, front tuck a blouse into a high waisted jean to give the same effect. Let me know if you try this out and like it!

Have a great Tuesday! XO, MS

White Spring Dresses

| white dresses: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 | espadrilles | headband | earrings |

Like I’ve mentioned before, white dresses have been on my mind. With our wedding fast approaching, I’ve purchased a few for different events we’ve had throughout our engagement. I wore this one last weekend to a tea in Memphis with sweet friends and family. I love the detailing and the way it fits, and although it’s sold out, I found a few similar options for you.

I am also wearing two pieces that were made by friends! How cool is it that I get to share some of their creations!! The headband was handmade by a friend I went to high school with. She has started her own hairstyling and hair accessory company that you must check out – click here. I’m also wearing earrings designed by a dear friend who started her jewelry company as a young girl. What a business she has built. Shop her beautiful pieces here.

Of course, you don’t have to be a bride to incorporate a beautiful white dress to your spring and summer wardrobe! I plan on wearing this to church and even on our honeymoon.

I hope you have a great rest of your week! XO, MS

Floral Embroidered Top

| blouse, others: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 | jeans (a favorite) |

| espadrilles | bag | earrings | sunglasses |

Let me introduce you to my new favorite top! I haven’t shared anything new with you guys in awhile for a few reasons including I haven’t bought much lately (saving for wedding purchases) and haven’t been super inspired to create new outfit combinations either. I’m starting to pick up a few spring and summer pieces, and I’m feeling inspired by the beautiful sunshine we’ve had, both here in Dallas and in Memphis.

This blouse is one of my latest purchases, and of course it’s already almost sold out. Apparently other people love it too! I’ve linked some of my other favorite floral tops above, so you can recreate my look. Many have ruffles and fun collars – a Sanford Standard staple.

I styled this top back to my go-to straight leg jeans. If I haven’t convinced you to get these jeans yet, now is the time. I’ve worn them over the last year on a weekly basis. Check out other ways to wear them here and here. I rounded out the outfit with these comfy espadrille wedges, a statement earring and a small bag. Spring, I’m glad you’re here!

Thanks for stopping by! XO, MS
