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.

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.

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

Wedding Guest Dress

| dress: rent or buy | shoes | earrings | bra | curling iron |

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!

Pleated Cut Out Maxi Dress

| dress | heels | earrings | watch | clutch | lips | curling iron | necklace |

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!

Thanks for stopping by, friends!

Light Blue Lace Dress

| similar dress: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 |

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.

I hope you are able to get dressed up soon!

Rehearsal Dinner Dress

Business in the front. PARTY IN THE BACK!

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 Dress because 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.

Bridal Luncheon Dress

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

White ruffles and distressed denim

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!

Happy Monday, friends! XO, MS

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.
