Happy hump day and first day of August! As summer winds down and temperatures continue to scorch, you can find your favorite warm weather pieces on sale and still have time to wear them. Just like the top I’m wearing… Florals aren’t usually my go-to, but I love the small print on this Rebecca Taylor blouse. Head over to their website ASAP because they are offering an extra 40% off their sale!!

I love wearing this top with its matching skirt, but why limit yourself? I paired it back to an oldie but a goodie – my distressed skinnies. The high rise accentuates your waist and sucks you in!

I purchased these espadrilles a few weeks ago, and I haven’t taken them off since. Maybe to sleep and shower, but that’s it. They are the perfect height, so I can wear them all day at work and not be in pain. I’m warning you now – you’ll be seeing a lot more of these bad boys this summer.

Thanks for stopping by, and share Sanford Standard with a friend!

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?

Thanks for stopping by!!

The saturated greens in these photos make me happy. Spring is here, and it’s time to be outside. #EarthDay.

I love that this outfit is so easy to put together, but adding the vest makes this look more than a casual t-shirt and jeans combo. If that makes any sense. The addition of a third piece can do wonders for any look, whether that means adding a wrap to a dress and heels or a double breasted blazer to your work blouse and pencil skirt.

My favorite third piece is a vest. I have denim, which you’ve all seen a thousand times, military inspired, red leather and a couple of others. Try layering a third piece, and see how much more put together you feel!

For more inspiration, here are some other vest looks: 1, 2, 3, 4. Notice how boring some of my outfits would be if the vest was gone!

This weekend I visited my boyfriend, Henry, in Houston. A half-day at work and a 3.5 hour drive called for something put together yet comfortable. This turned out to be the perfect look, and the jacket was a staple of the weekend.

After I arrived in Houston, Henry and I headed to Alice Blue for dinner in the Heights. Good food and a cozy atmosphere – I definitely recommend. Saturday we rode in the best Soul Cycle class we’d taken and then proceeded to eat a Tiny’s chocolate chip cookie. The cookie negated the workout, but oh well, it was worth it. Saturday night we joined many Houstonians at Lights in the Heights – a stroll through a joyfully decorated neighborhood which included live bands and hot cocoa.

Houston, you’re growing on me.

Dorothy, is that you?

Mine don’t sparkle, but they sure are red.

I love this look because I mixed textures, colors and patterns. Clearly the red anchors the look while the neutrals keep the outfit simple yet interesting. I got these fun slides at Marshalls, but unfortunately, you can’t shop on their website. Checkout your closest Marshalls or TJ Maxx for amazing deals. I found the same shoe in burgundy, a great color for fall.
