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!!
This weekend was a blast! We had the best time celebrating the Brolliers, Henry’s mom and new husband, at Houston’s Bayou Club! It was a gift to have so many of his family members all in one room after months apart.
I wore this beautiful midi dress that was the perfect weight for this transitional weather. The deep v neck and the puffy sleeves made the dress perfectly feminine and just dressy enough for the event. I give this dress a 10/10 if you have a special event coming up!
Thanks for stopping by, and as always, you can find more of my outfits linked in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app!
Can you tell these are my favorite party shoes?! They go with everything and are perfect for any time of year. I was hesitant to splurge on these heels 8 months ago, but I’ve already worn them countless times! They even look great with jeans and a top, styled here. If you have an event coming up, snag this dress too while it’s still on major sale!
Another beautiful couple is married! My girl, May, married her guy, William this weekend in Memphis. What a joy it was to be a part of their intimate ceremony. New and old friends gathered to celebrate them, and I walked away realizing just how loved they are and how well they love others. Cheers to the Clinkscales!
I bought this dress awhile back, so I linked similar dresses by the same designer. I also linked this exact dress on consignment sites.
How fun is this dress?! I wore it last weekend to a rehearsal dinner, and it was perfectly breathable for cocktail hour outside and comfortable enough for the seated dinner inside. The construction of this dress is beautiful – from the pleats and the bouncy ruffles to the low back. I’m reminded of the book Always Pack a Party Dressbecause this IS the ultimate party dress!
Thanks for letting me relive last weekend! XO, MS
P.S. This dress is on sale, so grab it if you do indeed have a party coming up. Maybe get if you don’t because we will inevitably have parties once again.
This dress makes me happy! The bright colors, the ruffles and the puff sleeves are details I’m drawn to when shopping, and this dress has them all. I linked it above at a few different retailers that have it in varying sizes and price points.
I wore this outfit Friday for a dear friend’s bridal luncheon. A delicious meal at Al Biernat’s was the perfect way to kick off her wedding weekend! If only we could do it all over again!!
Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be sharing my rehearsal dinner dress soon. XO, MS
A white blouse and jeans won’t ever go out of style. I snagged this top over a month ago, and it’s quickly become one of my favorites. In my opinion, you can never have too many white blouses, so if you have room in your closet, this might be a great piece for you. I wore it here with shorts for a more casual look. Dress it up, dress it down and wear it year round!
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.
You all know my love and obsession for Tibi. BUT what I love even more: a piece that will transition from one season to the next. I wore this blouse with a suede skirt and under a leather jumper back in the fall and winter. Now the top is making it’s first spring appearance, and you can’t go wrong with an all white look.
Do you have a piece that you break out every season?
Today I am headed to New York with my mom, and I can only imagine the walking we are going to do. I’ve decided to focus this week’s Friday Finds on the most comfortable shoes going into Fall. You don’t just need comfortable shoes in NYC, so I’ve pulled a few that we will need for those days when we don’t want to try too hard but don’t want to wear our tennis shoes either.
First up is the Vince slip-on. These come in all the coveted fabrics and colors of fall including olive satin and pink velvet. These shoes have been all the rage the last couple of years, but I love the height Vince has added.
I love a great oxford – I’m sure you can tell considering I wear my snakeskin oxfords quite regularly. I picture myself wearing this shoe with a slim ankle length black trouser and a crew neck sweater. This shoe speaks “put together J. Crew” to me.
Comfort is key when it comes to wearing a bootie. If they are too tight, your foot feels claustrophobic. If they are too big, you feel like a clown. Or at least I do. I love the colors this Paul Green bootie comes in. I envision you wearing this bootie with distressed jeans and a plaid button down, but that’s just me.
