Introducing your new favorite shirt line… drumroll please… Click here to discover Harshman’s beautiful blouses! This isn’t your average button down either. The rust colored stripes and the pleated collar are a unique combo, AND this blouse is made in the US. I can’t wait to layer sweaters on top – if it ever cools off, that is.

I have to say I was feeling quite put together and tailored in this outfit yesterday, but those feelings were squashed when I met Henry for lunch in his office building. The place was bustling with men in suits and women in pencil skirts and block heels. What a different world I live in at FDF! I’m thankful for the freedom and creativity I get to have when getting dressed in the morning.

Floral Dress for Fall

| dress | headband | sandals | sunglasses | purse |

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!!

Happy Monday, friends! It’ll be hard to get back into my work routine after traveling around Portugal for a week (photos to come)! I do love my own bed though!

Today, I’m sharing yesterday’s church look. I am slowly transitioning into my fall wardrobe, but it seems like the weather is transitioning even slower. Once cooler temps hit, a fur vest and over the knee boots will complete this look!

Friday Finds: Layering Necklaces

fridayfinds

Happy Friday, friends! I’m headed to Portugal today with Margaret and Mae for a week of exploring and adventure! Follow on along on Instagram for daily activities and outfit details. I’m starting 25 with a bang that’s for sure!

In Wednesday’s post I shared my love for the three necklaces I wear everyday. They each have meaning, and I don’t see myself taking them off anytime soon. They probably do need to be cleaned, though!! Below you will find links to other delicate necklaces that would be great for stacking! I can’t wait to see how you create your own layered look!

My everyday necklace stack

IMG_6346

| pearl | silver | similar gold |

I have been asked a few times recently about the three necklaces I wear everyday, so I thought I would share this with everyone! I’m a very sentimental person, so naturally each piece holds meaning and memories.

First, I received the pearl necklace from my parents when I graduated from the 6th grade. All of my childhood friends were heading in different directions as we started new schools, but we all held a special bond. Then my parents gifted me the silver diamond necklace when I graduated from high school. This necklace represents a wonderful childhood in Memphis, and the change that was ahead, college. Lastly, Henry gave me the gold diamond necklace that I spotted in an Austin, TX boutique, and he surprised me with it on our one year anniversary. I’ve realized that he’s always listening even when I think he’s not!

And YES, they get tangled, so if you have any nifty tricks to keep this from happening, I’m all ears!

In this week’s Friday Finds, I’m going to share some necklaces that I think would be great for layering, so that you can create your own everyday stack. Be on the look out!

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

White after Labor Day

| top | jeans | sandals | bag | sunglasses |

Y’all have seen me style this striped top with the matching pant here, so I wanted to show you another way to wear it especially since it’s on clearance right now! Because the top is slightly cropped, I styled it with my high waisted white jeans. Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t wait wear white after Labor Day because you CAN! Imagine these jeans with a cozy sweater and an ankle bootie in the fall! Cute, right?! If you follow me in the liketoknow.it app, then you also saw that my sandals are on sale too! Get these deals while they are still available!

Happy Humpday!

White Eyelet Ruffles

| blouse (other) | jeans | sandals | headband | bag | sunglasses |

I live for white blouses… Not sure why but they are one of my favorite things to buy! Maybe because they go with everything or because they don’t go out of style? I’m not sure, but I love them! This blouse in a new addition I picked up from a local Dallas boutique, but I linked it above. It’s on sale, too! Style it with colored denim and an ankle bootie as we head into fall!

Happy Labor Day! I hope you enjoy your day off!!
