Dress + Sweater

| shirtdress: 1, 2, 3, 4 | sweater: 1, 2, 3, 4 | headband | mules: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 |

I love creating new outfits with old pieces. Each piece I’m wearing has been in my closet for at least a year, and in fact, I think I’ve had this shirtdress for four. You can count on a classic piece like this dress or this sweater to never go out of style. Sometimes the classics are worth spending a little bit more money on so that you get a quality piece that will last you for seasons.

Headband or no headband? That is the question.

I couldn’t decide if I liked this outfit with or without the headband, so I shot both. What do y’all think? My mom told me it wasn’t necessary for me to wear a headband everyday (haha), so I’ve tried to mix things up over the last few weeks. She likes them, so this isn’t a dig at her! Last week I think I only wore a headband twice – that’s big for me. As you’ve seen over the last 8 months, they’ve become quite a staple in my wardrobe. Not only are they cute, but they also keep my hair out of my eyes while still being able to wear it down. Something that is hard to master when you have a lot of hair like me… What do y’all think? Should I take a break from headbands?

Layering the unexpected

Have a sweater that’s a little itchy? Layer something under it! This sleeveless turtleneck can drive me crazy after awhile, so I added this striped Harshman blouse underneath. This is one of my favorite buys from the fall. My mom loved it so much she got one too! Click here to see another way I styled it.

P.S. This sweater is old, so I linked something similar!

I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! XO, MS

Last week was a crazy one! Parties, events, games, work… Things are really picking as Christmas quickly approaches! This is my favorite time of the year, and I’ve been enjoying it. With that, blogging doesn’t always get done. Today I’m highlighting an outfit that I wore to the SMU vs Memphis football game about a month ago and just recently when I was back home for Thanksgiving.

I hope you have a happy Monday and gathered a little fashion inspiration!

Headband Promo Code

Over the last six months, I’ve found a way to wear a headband with almost every outfit in my closet! Thanks to Tinsley Allison Designs and their promo code, SanfordStandard20, I added another, AND YOU CAN TOO! They are also having a holiday sale right now if you want to add a headband to your wardrobe or get one as a Christmas gift for a friend!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It sure was nice being home.

Camo Pants

Happy Humpday!!! You’ll notice a lot of what I’m wearing here are pieces that you’ve seen before just styled a different way! I feel like versatility is key for this time in my life because I don’t have tons of money to spend on new clothes every month. I have a lot of fun reworking the pieces in my closet, and I hope to inspire you to create new looks with what you already have. Sprinkling in a new piece can go a long way when you’re smart about what you buy.

I purchased these camo pants during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this summer, and lucky for you, they are on sale again! Camo is trending this fall, so why not let this be the piece you add to your closet. You’ll be surprised by how much goes with them – especially items you already have!! Think white eyelet tops (shown above) and blue striped shirts while temps are still high, and don’t be afraid to pattern mix. Once the cooler weather hits, style these pants with a chambray, cozy sweaters in almost ANY solid color, and leather moto jackets. I can’t wait to see how you style these bad boys!!

My graduation dress

Here I am resurrecting my college graduation dress! I love it as much as I did when I wore it two years ago. The details made this a special dress for a special occasion. I’ve linked similar options plus my dress in navy, so check them out! You’re probably wondering if you can wear white after labor day, and yes, you most definitely can! Don’t let silly rules determine if and when you can wear some of your favorite pieces.

Happy Monday! Search your closet for an oldie but a goodie!

White tee and white slides

IMG_5508

| tee | skirt: 1, 2, 3 | headband | earrings |

white slides: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

I’m sure you’ve seen white sandals and shoes all over the place the last few seasons! Unfortunately, mine are no longer available, but I linked some similar options that can be dressed up and down. It doesn’t look like this trend is going to slow down as we head into fall either!

This $10 tee is a new favorite! I love the sleeve detail and cropped waist which elevates this from any ordinary white t-shirt. I dressed down this skirt by front tucking the tee and adding my go-to accessory, the headband. I’ll probably wear it again this weekend with my favorite denim shorts!

Hope you have a great weekend!

xo, MS
