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!

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.

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

Can you tell Henry likes to get real up close and personal?!

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

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.

Ruffle Mini Skirt

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!

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!!!

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

Tie Dye cont.

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

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
