Plaid dress for fall

This is the perfect transitional dress to have in your closet! Wear it now with espadrilles and then with booties and a fur vest as temps drop. It has surprisingly been nice here in Dallas, and I sure hope this fall like weather continues. What are you most looking forward to wearing this season?! I can’t wait for all the boots and booties!

A Neutral Look

When I think of summer outfits, I usually think of bright colors and patterns, but every once and awhile it’s nice to break out a more neutral look. I love this dress because while you can wear it now, you can also wear it this fall with cognac booties and a denim jacket or moto jacket.

My mom bought this dress for herself, but lucky for me, it didn’t work for her. You can snag it on sale using the link above!

I hope you have a great weekend!! XO, MS

You can’t go wrong with eyelet and white jeans in the summer, and they are even better together!

I’m happy to be back in Dallas after two weeks away! Vacation is wonderful and these trips were amazing, but I do love a routine. I traveled to the Snowmass/Aspen area with Henry’s family, to Watersound beach with high school friends and finally to Park City for a bachelorette celebration! I’m thankful for this time with some of my favorite people! For more photos and outfit details from these trips, visit my instagram!

P.S. I’m going to share our favorite restaurants from Aspen in an upcoming post.

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!

You know I love ruffles, so the fact that I love this dress shouldn’t surprise you! It just makes me happy. It also allowed me to eat lots of yummy food on vacation! No tight clothes here!!

Henry and I spent the week in Colorado with his family, and we had a blast. The fact that we could walk outside and not instantly sweat was life giving. We hiked, rode horses and enjoyed the delicious food and adorable restaurants in Aspen. I can’t wait to go back!

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!

Denim skater dress

This dress style isn’t usually my go-to for whatever reason, but I couldn’t resist this denim number! I dressed it up Saturday night with these wedges and flower earrings for a friend’s birthday celebration, but I will also pair it with strappy sandals and a ponytail for a casual summer day. The price isn’t bad either!

Let me know what you think! XO, MS

Colorful Safari Printed Dress

I am loving the unique and colorful pattern of this dress – it just makes me smile! Henry and I went to a casual birthday party Saturday night in Houston, and this was the perfect outfit for an outdoor hangout. I forgot just how hot Texas summers are! The night was filled with cake, corn hole and downtown views, and the perfect start to the summer.

I will definitely elevate this dress with these gold heels and a clutch for a fancier summer party or date night.

I hope you have a great week, and thanks for stopping by! XO, MS

The perfect summer dress

This might be my favorite dress of the summer! It’s extremely lightweight and flowy – perfect for those crazy hot days ahead. The ruffled shoulder and collar plus the bright pattern make me so happy. I’ll wear it with sneakers, wedges and sandals depending on the day.

Also, my sunglasses are on MAJOR sale, so be sure to check those out! I’ve worn them for the last year and a half – 5 star review!

To Tie Dye For

IMG_5015 2

| tee | jeans | headband | sandals |

Are you loving the tie dye trend?! Because I am! I’ve sprinkled tie dye into my wardrobe in a few ways: a workout top, a sweatsuit and this tee. I’m trying not to go overboard, but the bright colors are hard to resist. I’ve had friends make their own tie dye pieces too which have all turned out really cute (using a kit by this brand.)

This tee is the perfect cropped length for any of your high waisted shorts and pants. I’ve even paired it with a white tennis skirt for after dinner walks. How have you incorporated tie dye into your wardrobe?

I hope you have a safe and healthy weekend! XO, MS
