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!

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

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

If you look at the last handful of my Instagram posts, you will notice that I’m loving the headband trend! Like I mentioned in a recent blog post, headbands are a fun way to add a pop of color, texture and keep your hair out of your face. This week I’m going to round up a few more of my favorites! I’ll definitely be adding a few of these to my cart, and the prices are good too!

Happy Friday!!

Go-to Combo

IMG_4852

| tee | shorts | headband | sandals |

This has been my go-to look this summer! Whether I’m hanging with Henry, running errands or traveling, this has been an easy and comfortable look to put together. You can wear this tee year round too, and get excited because camo is a trend for fall! I’m still loving the headband trend for many reasons, but it most importantly keeps my hair out of my face.

Every single one of these pieces will be a staple for you and pair back to a lot of what you already have in your wardrobe! You can’t go wrong with denim shorts, a cotton tee and a solid headband!
