Styled Spring Looks #2

Just in case you needed a little spring inspo on this Monday morning! After a week of freezing temps, we now have beautiful sunny and 75 degree weather here in Dallas. That’s Texas for you! I’m over layers and snow boots and ready to move into sandals and sundresses. I decided to style a few spring looks to get you ready for the warmer weather ahead! Many of these pieces can be transitioned from winter to spring just depending on how you style them. Have fun shopping!

I’d also love these two tops paired with white jeans – another easy way to brighten up a winter to spring look.

Pastels scream spring, and these dresses are no different! Of course you can dress them both down with a flat sandal and denim jacket.

I love a beige or ivory jean as opposed to a white jean. These are a great way to add another neutral pair to your closet without them being white or a light wash.

Skinny Jeans are a YES

| fur jacket | plaid shirt | skinny jeans | booties | headband | bag |

Have you heard what Gen Z is saying?? They claim skinny jeans aren’t cool anymore, and I’m here to tell you they are wrong! Not all jean styles are flattering on every body type, but you know what you feel best in. Don’t let the kids tell you otherwise! I love a skinny jean especially if I’m wearing something blousy on top. My rule of thumb is to wear something fitted on top if I’m wearing a loose bottom and vice versa. I hope this encourages you to keep doing you!

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you have a great weekend!

Classics reimagined

A little pattern mixing never hurt nobody!!

Each piece of this outfit is a classic, yet all together, they feel new and fresh! I’ve had the sweater, coat and skort for at least a year, but this is the first time I’m putting them all together. I love reimagining items I’ve had in my closet and making them feel new again.

Now, let’s see what you can come up with in your closet! Ready, set, go!

Chelsea Booties

| bag | earrings | sunglasses |

I LOVE a deal! I call them steals and deals, and that’s the category these booties fall under. I had been eyeing them for awhile, and when I saw they were 50% off, I took the plunge. I was a little nervous since they were final sale, but I’m so glad I took the risk. The suede is beautiful, they are super comfortable, and I love the feminine touch the pearl studs add. Now you can get them for 60% off if you follow the link above!

The rest of my outfit is a combination of old and new, so I did my best to link what I could. Shop the links above to recreate my look!

Thanks for stopping by! XO, MS

P.S. This bag holds a lot more than you think, and these heart earrings are on sale!

Sweater dress + slip skirt

| dress: 1, 2, 3 | booties | headband | earrings: 1, 2, 3 | curling iron |

Happy Wednesday and Happy Christmas Eve Eve! I can’t believe we are just a couple of days away from Christmas.

I feel like I haven’t shown y’all many styled looks recently, so I was glad my girl, Allie, could take these photos for me! I love that this dress gives the illusion of a sweater and skirt but is in fact one piece. It’s super comfortable and can be easily dressed up and down. I’ve worn it with heels, booties and sneakers! Click the links above to see this dress and a couple of similar options that would be great for a low key New Year’s Eve!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a Merry Christmas! XO, MS

A few of my favorite accessories

| sweater | plaid shirts: 1, 2, 3 | jeans | booties | bag |

| earrings | sunglasses |

I’m highlighting a couple of small businesses today that I love. First up is The Pink Reef who designed the most fabulous turquoise earrings I’m wearing. They are super lightweight and perfect for any season. I can definitely see myself dressing them up with a cocktail dress too. Check out her site and the other beautiful earrings she has created. You may find a Christmas gift or two!

Next, I wanted to highlight this camo Parker Thatch tote that Henry gave to me for Christmas last year. It is such a useful bag – great for traveling, toting a laptop or just everyday use. It’s made of canvas too which makes it very durable! If you are looking for a great Christmas gift for a girl who loves purses, look no further than Parker Thatch!

I hope this post helped you with Christmas gifts this holiday season!

Happy Monday! xo, MS

Favorite Fall Booties

Booties are a must-have for the fall and winter. Some I even wear year round. They can dress down a fancy dress and elevate any denim look. Click here and here for examples of both.

I’ve linked some that I own and some that are on my wishlist. The prices are really good on many of these too, so be sure to check them out! Also, many come in a variety of colors, so if you like the style but not the color way, there’s most likely another choice.

Click here, here, here, here and here for more of my favorite looks featuring booties.

Sweater + Shorts

| sweater | shorts | booties | sunglasses | headband | earrings | bag |

This is what I wear when it’s 80 degrees in November – YES you read that right. It pains me to wear a summery blouse this far into the fall, so I styled this lightweight cotton sweater with my go-to boyfriend jean shorts and my favorite new booties.

This sweater comes in over 10 colors, so you’ll be able to fill just about any gap you may have in your wardrobe! The slightly cropped length is perfect for front tucking, my number one styling tip, which was a huge plus, too. I also CAN’T STAND an itchy sweater, and because this sweater is 100% cotton, you can wear it all day without your skin reacting. I can’t forget to mention the amazing price, $78! Overall, I give this sweater an 11/10 and think it would be the perfect addition to your fall wardrobe!! Can you tell this is my new favorite sweater?!

Hope you have a great week! XO, MS

Prints + Croc + Fur

| dress | vest | booties | headband | earrings |

I loving mixing textures and patterns, and in the fall, it’s so much easier to do this! We are naturally wearing many layers with more ways to mix and match.

These booties were a fan favorite last year, so the designer released them again this year – you’re in luck! I’m on my feet most of the day, and these pass the all day comfort test!! Super important in my book as I’m sure in yours. This dress is a new piece I picked up recently from an unexpected retailer. I decided to play with texture and color and layered this fur vest on top!

What unexpected combos can you create this week?! Combining different textures and patterns add interest to any look.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you had a fun Halloween weekend!

Ruffle Front Dress

| dress | booties | headband others: 1, 2, 3, 4 | earrings |

You know I can’t turn down a good ruffle, and on top of that, this dress reminds me of a Sea New York piece but for a third of the price! This is a great dress to wear now through the fall but to bring back out for spring and summer. The sleeves, fabric and color make it a versatile piece!

You also need to check out my fabulous new earrings by Hazen & Co! These earrings are another piece that can be dressed up and down and worn all year long. I find myself investing in items that I can get the most mileage out of, and these earrings are definitely worth the investment! Not to mention the designer and owner of Hazen is the most wonderful human.
