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

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

| 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

Target Round Up

Hi, friends! I hope you all had a happy Easter weekend! As you can imagine, things were pretty laid back around here. We’ve eaten lots of chocolate and had a delicious beef tenderloin supper. My brother, Myatt, has been leading us in daily workouts that I hope we continue, but Y’ALL I’m sore!

I wanted to share another round up with y’all today, and this time I’m highlighting Target – THE best! Everything is reasonably priced, and almost everything comes in a variety of colorways. Be sure to click the links below!

Hope you have a great week. XO, MS

Spring Shoes under $200

Do you love shoes? I definitely do and have forever. I remember as a child prancing around my house in those plastic dress up heels. Now the heels I wear are more expensive and more uncomfortable, go figure. Today, I want to share some of my favorite sandals, sneakers and heels that you can wear now all the way through summer. Best part, they are all under $200!

Wear these with the dresses from Monday’s post, here!

White Eyelet Midi Dress

One of my coworkers told me I was channeling my inner Laura Ingalls Wilder with this look, and you know, I’m not mad about it. I wouldn’t mind running through a field of lush grass with a basket in tow.

I love the special details on this dress from the eyelet embroidery, ribbon cinched waist and the scalloped trim. You can’t get more feminine than this! Unfortunately, this dress isn’t online anymore, so I linked some of my other favorite white midi dresses with similar detailing. If you want to see what other pieces this brand is offering, click HERE.

I hope you have a great Wednesday!!

The best embroidered dress

IMG_4615

| dress | bag | clips | espadrilles |

First of all, how dreamy is this backdrop? Hotel Esencia, just north of Tulum, Mexico, is the most serene place I’ve ever stayed. Iguanas greeted me every morning on my doorstep, and the private beach was only steps away. I can’t talk about this place without mentioning the five star service and the kind people who work there. I already miss Jorge’s and Rojo’s smiling faces!!

Now onto my outfit… This was the perfect dress to bring to Mexico. It was not only breathable in the intense heat but mimicked the embroidery you find on traditional Mexican dresses. I paired it with the orange straw bag and my tried and true gold espadrilles. What am I going to do when these fall apart?
