Floral patchwork top: wear now and later

| top | denim shorts | straight leg jeans | ballet flats: 1 & 2 | sneakers |

| denim jacket | headband | bag | earrings |

Goodness, it’s been awhile! The wedding, the move and a new job have gotten me out of my posting routine, but I’m happy to be back.

Today, I want to introduce you to my new favorite blouse. I’m sure I’ve told yall this before, but I often think about cost per wear when shopping. While this is an expensive blouse, there are a variety of ways to wear it. I decided to show you two of them! How cute is this blouse tucked into denim shorts with a pair of flats or sandals? The perfect spring and summer look! As the weather cools off, I’ll be wearing this blouse with jeans and a sneaker or a bootie. You can even layer a vest on top and still show off the fun sleeve. I also want to style this top with leather shorts, overalls and blue jeans!

I hope this post encourages you to expand the life of some of your pieces!

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.

Tie dye puff sleeve sweatshirt

| sweatshirt | jeans | bag | headband | sneakers |

Happy Monday, friends! Did you watch the Super Bowl last night?! Henry and I picked up Houston’s spinach artichoke dip and chilled on the sofa – ’twas a good night!

Today, I wanted to share one of my go-to sweatshirts. I love that it’s so comfortable yet feels fashionable and put together! Of course I styled it with a headband and my favorite jeans. If you only buy one thing from me ever, it needs to be these jeans. I swear I wear them at least 3 times a week. They run true to size but give a little as you wear them, so I occasionally dry them.

Hope you have a great week! XO, MS

Metallic Puffer Jacket

| sneakers: 1 and 2 | sunglasses |

I know we are just a couple of weeks into 2021, but I have a feeling this metallic puffer is going to be one of my favorites pieces of the year. The color makes me happy and the material keeps me warm – great for someone who stays cold like me! It’s on sale, but hurry, because it is selling out fast.

Thanks for stopping by! XO, MS

Puff Sleeve Sweatshirt

| sweatshirt | jeans | sneakers | headband | sunglasses | earrings |

There are a few great Christmas gift ideas in this post including my new favorite sweatshirt! I’m especially obsessed with the puff sleeves. I feel like I’m wearing a blouse, but it’s really just a cozy sweatshirt with some style. This will make anyone’s work from home life feel a little more elevated.

Headbands, statement jewelry, sunglasses and sneakers also make great Christmas gifts!

I hope you had a great weekend! XO, MS

Camel Suede Jacket + Blue Jeans

| top | jeans | jacket | sneakers | headband | sunglasses | necklace |

You really can’t go wrong with blue jeans and a camel jacket or coat in the fall. They are such a classic and neutral combo. This jacket is a piece I picked up from Luxury Garage Sale a few years back, and it has been a staple in my wardrobe ever since. Because this jacket is no longer sold, I linked another camel suede option I love as well.

When shopping for great pieces, don’t forget to check out consignment stores because you never know what you might find! I got this jacket at a fraction of its original retail price.

Happy Monday, and thanks for stopping by! XO, MS

White Overalls

Overalls aren’t just for 12-year-olds, people!! These have been in my closet for at least four years but have gotten pushed to the back overtime. After seeing someone else rock theirs, I got inspired to create a new look with mine! What do yall think?! I linked the shorts version too if those are more your speed.

Thanks for stopping by! XO, MS

PS I’m still making the small beaded bracelets if you’d like for me to make you a set! Three for $18!

Top 12 most worn spring & summer items

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.

Dress + Sneakers

A dress and sneakers: one of my favorite combinations. I love the mix of femininity with a sporty edge. Of course, sneakers make every outfit more comfortable too. Since I’m on my feet almost all day at work, I try to wear sneakers as much as possible. Style one of your favorite dresses with sneakers, and see how you like the combo! You may never look back.

Recreate my look by clicking the links above! I’m sure you’ll see this dress again this spring paired with a heel or espadrille, too.
