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.

Classics reimagined

| sweater | skort | coat: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 | booties | bag |

| sunglasses | headband | necklace: 1, 2, 3 |

A little pattern mixing never hurt nobody!!

Each piece of this outfit is a classic, yet all together, they feel new and fresh! I’ve had the sweater, coat and skort for at least a year, but this is the first time I’m putting them all together. I love reimagining items I’ve had in my closet and making them feel new again.

Now, let’s see what you can come up with in your closet! Ready, set, go!

Lavender Lady

| dress & similar: 1, 2, 3, 4 | earrings | heels | clutch |

| curling iron | lipstick |

Henry and I celebrated the marriage of one of his longtime friends this past weekend, and we had the best time! I have loved getting to know his hometown friends, the people that know him the best and the longest. It made me even more excited for our wedding and all of our favorite people getting together in one place, my favorite place to be exact! Memphis.

Dressing up made this weekend fun too. One of the reasons I love using Rent the Runway is getting to try something new or something I would not have purchased at full price. This dress is a great example of that. It retails for almost $500, but I rented it for $65. In fact, it came with the tags still on!

I’ve linked this dress plus a few others I love and my accessories! Check them out.

Engagement Photos + Outfit Details

MS: | dress | boots: 1, 2, 3, 4 | earrings | curling iron |

H: | sport coat | shirt | jeans | boots |

Henry and I took our engagement photos in early November at SMU and Lakeside Park – both places we love and have spent a lot of time. We used Perez Photography, and we are so glad that we did. These photos turned out beautifully, and you would have never known Henry and I felt super awkward half the time! I don’t know about you, but I’m not used to being lovey-dovey in front of a camera.

I put a lot of thought into what I wanted to wear for these photos, and I purchased this dress with them in mind. On a typical day, I probably would’ve worn big earrings, a headband and maybe even layered a fur vest on top, but I knew I wanted something a bit more classic and clean for photos we would have forever. This dress felt feminine without being too overwhelming or detailed, and I love how the boots added texture.

MS: | sweater | shorts | earrings | booties |

H: | sweater | shirt | cords | shoes |

I knew we would have two outfits each, and I wanted one set to be a little more casual than the other. Here I chose to go with an all white theme, but I didn’t want to look summery. This ivory sweater with the lace sleeves was the perfect piece for the occasion, and I found a simple short to match. I completed the fall appropriate look with these suede booties I wear all the time.

If you are taking professional photos soon, whether they are engagement or for something else, choose an outfit that isn’t too busy and that complements you, not distracts. You will be the focus, not the clothes!

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.

A Pink Printed Dress for Fall

| dress other color ways: 1, 2 | headband | sandals | earrings |

I envisioned wearing this fall dress with camel booties (these, these or these), but because it was 80 degrees in Houston the night I wore this dress, I opted for sandals. We got a glimpse of chilly weather yesterday, so I hope that means boots are in my future!

Do you prefer fall or summer clothes? I think I typically prefer summer because clothes are designed with such happy patterns and colors, but for some reason, I’m really itching to wear fall gear this year and leave the summer clothes behind.

P.S. You can grab these sandals on sale right now!!

Thanks for reading and happy weekend! XO, MS

A Neutral Look

When I think of summer outfits, I usually think of bright colors and patterns, but every once and awhile it’s nice to break out a more neutral look. I love this dress because while you can wear it now, you can also wear it this fall with cognac booties and a denim jacket or moto jacket.

My mom bought this dress for herself, but lucky for me, it didn’t work for her. You can snag it on sale using the link above!

I hope you have a great weekend!! XO, MS

Fashionable Face Masks

It looks like we will be wearing face masks for awhile, so why not wear a cute one?! Have you caught yourself smiling at someone and then realize you have a mask on? I’ve definitely done this! Since our friends and neighbors can’t see our smiles, maybe these colorful masks will brighten their day instead. Below you’ll find a few of my favorites, and be sure to click the links underneath each photo to see the variety of color and pattern options.

Stay safe, friends! XO, MS

Pink Vest + Denim Shorts

| vest: 1, 2 | tee | shorts | headband | slides: 1, 2, 3 | bag | twilly |

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

White eyelet blouse

| blouse: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 | jeans | headband | bag | twilly | earrings | wedges |

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!
