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

Screen Shot 2020-07-07 at 11.28.57 PM

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

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

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!

Thanks for stopping by! XO, MS

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!!!

Thanks for stopping by! As always, you can shop my look and similar pieces through the links above and in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app. Happy weekend, friends! XO, MS

To Tie Dye For

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

Light Pink: old made new

| top similar: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 | jeans | coat | loafers others: 1, 2, 3| headband |

I love creating new looks with old pieces! I’ve had the coat and jeans for years but never thought about pairing them together until the other day. Before I walked out the door, I decided I probably needed an extra layer, and this is the only coat that went with my outfit. In my mind, it’s warmer than it really is. Hurry up spring!

I challenge you to create a new combination out of pieces you already have!

XO, MS

Congrats C + K: wedding attire recap

| dress: rent or purchase | heels | wrap | earrings | bag |

Congratulations to the Vanns! It was so fun to be home with new and old friends from Dallas and Memphis as we celebrated Callie and Keaton. The wedding was black tie optional, so I opted for this short dress and metallic shoe combo. Unfortunately, this is the best picture I got of the dress, but click the links above for more detail! It was super comfortable and feels appropriate for many different occasions. Highly recommend!! I also recommend sizing a half size up in these heels.

Happy Monday, friends! It’ll be hard to get back into my work routine after traveling around Portugal for a week (photos to come)! I do love my own bed though!

Today, I’m sharing yesterday’s church look. I am slowly transitioning into my fall wardrobe, but it seems like the weather is transitioning even slower. Once cooler temps hit, a fur vest and over the knee boots will complete this look!
