Happy Thursday! This is one of my favorite tops from last summer! Although it’s not available anymore, I found similar tops, so you can recreate my look. These jeans have the perfect amount of distressing, a great relaxed fit and the works for all seasons! Give them a try!!

Thanks for stopping by to see today’s post! XO, MS

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

Ruffle Mini Skirt

ruffle skirts: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17

Ruffled skirts are feminine, fun and perfect for the summer heat! I found this one at a local Dallas consignment store, so I linked other ruffled perfections instead! I can dress this skirt up with a silk blouse and these gold heels or dress it down with a white tee and sneakers.

You’ll be glad you had one of these in your closet this summer!

White eyelet blouse

I hope you had a great weekend! I was back in Memphis for a few days with extended family, and we had a blast. After celebrating the life of my great aunt, we were able to enjoy time with cousins, aunts and uncles and grandparents. Circumstances weren’t ideal, but it was special being with people we don’t see often.

Today, I’m highlighting a summer classic: eyelet. Specifically a white eyelet blouse. This is a piece you can wear every summer for years to come. I bought this blouse at a Houston boutique, but I linked similar options for you. Style one of these blouses with your denim shorts, white jeans or a colorful skirt – such versatility!

Red and blue summer dress

You know red and blue are a favorite color combo of mine! You can celebrate America’s independence and cheer for the ponies at the same time. I see myself wearing this dress again on July 4th and then for an SMU football game this fall! Crossing my fingers that those still happen… I hope you add this fun summer dress to your closet!

Thanks for stopping by, friends! 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!

Pops of Red and Blue

Can you tell I’m ready for spring? Hems are getting shorter as warm weather approaches. Yesterday, Henry and I went to the last SMU basketball home game of the season where red and blue is a must, so I completed this neutral look with a bright red bag and a red and blue headband. Sandals felt a bit premature, so I opted for a closed toe flat. Unfortunately, we blew a 24 point lead – seems to be a trend… Football season can’t get here soon enough!

This weekend was a busy one… from breakfast with friends to car shopping, of course a trip to Ice House, an SMU basketball game and lots of yummy food. I wouldn’t change a thing! My favorite Saturdays are filled with lots of activities and beautiful weather!

Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite sweaters, but shop quickly because few sizes are left. I love that it has a wool body and lace sleeves – perfect for the warmish Dallas weather. Layer with a vest instead of a jacket to show off these fabulous sleeves. What do y’all think?

Friday Finds: Bags + Wallets

Y’all know I love to shop consignment because it’s a great way to score a deal on a designer item. If you’re in the market for a new bag or wallet, you’re in luck! All of these pieces are consigned, guaranteed authentic and up for grabs!

Happy Friday and happy shopping!

*This is a post I created awhile back but never posted! Some of these bags are still available! If sold, a similar option will populate!
