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

Happy Friday, friends! I hope this post finds you well.

On hot days (which we have many of here in Dallas), I often wear oversized pieces because I don’t want a ton of fabric sticking to me all day. Yesterday was 100+ degrees, and this eyelet cotton blouse kept me cool in the thick of it. I love that this blouse is breathable for hot summer days but will also work well into the fall with a pair of booties. Best of all, it’s under $60! My comfy espadrilles are on major sale right now, so be sure to check those out too!

Thanks for stopping by! XO, MS

I also want to give a shoutout to Henry for taking these photos at what was probably the hottest part of the day – he’s the best!

Pink Vest + Denim Shorts

I found another great pair of denim shorts for y’all!

I’ve had such a hard time finding denim shorts that don’t suffocate my thighs, are comfortable, and don’t let my booty hang out. It’s a bonus if they are high waisted, and these check all the boxes! This may seem dramatic, but it’s taken me years to find decent denim shorts. If you click the link above, you can shop both a light wash and the medium wash I’m wearing.

Let me know what you think! XO, MS

We celebrated our dear friend, Tegan, Wednesday who is headed off to Chicago to earn her MBA from Northwestern! GO girl! Kellogg is lucky to have you. We surprised her with a picnic on SMU’s Dallas Hall lawn. It was so special to bring everything full circle and to wish her well! Tegan, you better come back to us!!!

Thanks for stopping by! As always, you can shop my look and similar pieces through the links above and in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app. Happy weekend, friends! XO, MS

Okay so we got this tie dye sweatshirt in at work and I just had to… Last week I said I was going to try to keep my tie dye purchases to a minimum, and I’ve already failed! This sweatshirt is SUPER cozy and the perfect cropped length for high waisted shorts and jeans. Unfortunately, I can’t find this exact one online, so I’ve linked similar options. I hope you find one you like! Also, my sunglasses are on major sale, so I suggest you take a look at those as well!

Happy Memorial Day! XO, MS

Top 12 most worn spring & summer items

Screen Shot 2020-05-12 at 6.05.36 PM

Happy Wednesday, my friends! I feel like things are slowly getting back to normal – hallelujah! My family and I went out to dinner this weekend for Mother’s Day at a new place in Memphis called Porch and Parlor. If you’re in town, you need to try it, and I suggest ordering the fontina and truffle mashed potatoes, delish!

Today, I wanted to share my top 12 most worn spring and summer items from over the years. Most of these pieces are classics and go together, nothing too trendy you’ll feel silly wearing seasons to come. Some are splurges, but like I said, you will be wearing these items over and over again. When trying to decide if something is worth splurging on, I look at cost per wear. The more you wear the item, the lower your cost per wear will be.

My favorite denim shorts

IMG_3637

Y’all must have these denim shorts!! They couldn’t be more comfortable or have a better fit. First of all, I love the length. You won’t have to worry about your hinny hanging out. I also love that they are fitted in the waist but roomier in the thigh. I can’t stand a tight denim short. I’ve been searching for the perfect pair for seasons and finally found these shorts last weekend. I’ve linked the exact pair, so you can get your own. They run big, so make sure you order a size down! Let me know if you have any questions!!

Friday Finds: Denim Shorts

fridayfinds

A pair of denim shorts is the ultimate spring and summer staple, but I have the hardest time finding a pair that I love. I usually have to order a few pairs before I find the perfect one. I took all the work out of your denim short search! I’ve linked 25 of my favorite shorts for you to try. Almost all are under $200, and many are under $100. I hope you find just what you are looking for!
