This dress is a new favorite of mine! Although the color may be more spring/summer, you can style it so many different ways. As temps get cooler here in Illinois, I will pair it back to my cowboy boots and neutral booties to transition into the next season. The long sleeves give me great versatility. Sometimes if you take a step back from your wardrobe, you realize all the ways you can wear each piece!
I know it’s been awhile since my last post, so thanks for sticking around!

This is the second dress I received from Confete, and I’m in love! (The first one is linked here.) It’s the perfect lightweight linen material for our hot Dallas days and nights. I paired it with tan sandals and a rattan bag for an easy on-the-go look. Of course, you can also dress this piece up with an espadrille or a strappy heel for dinner. Before you go, don’t forget to check out the other Confete pieces I linked in the post mentioned above!
Hope you have a great weekend!! XO, MS

I want to introduce you guys to a retailer I recently discovered! Confete will be your new go-to for all things event related and bride-worthy. They have the best daytime and event-ready dresses that you’re going to love plus swimwear, separates and accessories. I love that they carry a variety of price points too. I snagged this white maxi dress from them along with another dress I’m going to share later this week. I feel like I live in dresses during the summer, so when I stumbled across this versatile piece, I couldn’t resist. Below I’m going to share some of my other Confete favorites.

We spent the weekend in Houston which provided some much needed sunshine and warm weather! I saw a stat that over the last 43 days, we’ve seen 1 day of sunshine in Chicago – OMG!! The dull weather was definitely getting to me. H and I loved being with family and definitely feel refreshed after our time away. Sunshine is good for the soul!
I wore this printed dress for cocktail hour and out to dinner, and the linen material was perfect for the warm weather. I plan on wearing this over and over again all summer long dressed up and down.
Happy Monday, friends! Let’s make this week a good one. XO, MS

Introducing the perfect summer dress, and it’s even more perfect for all you brides out there. I got this dress because it reminded me of a few Zimmermann dresses I love, but it’s a fraction of the price. I found the quality to be great, and I love that the back is adjustable. It will work for a variety of bust sizes! I added some colorful accessories and a sandal, and we were off to a boat ride in San Diego. Now, I just wish it would warm up in Chicago, so I can wear it here!
Thanks for stopping by! I really appreciate all of your support! XO, MS

Oh, how wonderful it was to be in the sunshine this past weekend. Puerto Vallarta, I’ll be back. I knew I needed to pack colorful pieces because my wardrobe has been filled with neutrals this cold winter season. To top off this bright orange dress, I accessorized with colorful jewels by Elsie Frieda. If you love them like I do, shop using the promo code SANFORD20 for 20 percent off your purchase.
Do you have any fun trips ahead?!

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is here?! The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is my favorite part of the year. There is so much joy, anticipation and family time! We are headed to Houston to be with Henry’s family, and I’m so excited to be back in the south for a little bit.
I wore this dress last week in Palm Beach, and I think it’s going to be my Thanksgiving dress too. It’s too cold to wear a short dress in Chicago, so I’ll take any chance I can get to show a little leg. Wouldn’t this be so cute with cowboy boots and a denim vest or jacket?! This pattern also comes in a fabulous blouse and jacket if that’s more your speed.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! XO, MS

Some times the cleaner the better. Ivory and denim will always be a classic combo, and when you’re having a styling block, you can reach for this. I have these denim shorts in both this wash and a lighter wash that I wear ALL. THE. TIME. I love the amount of coverage and how they go with just about everything. Who else can agree that it’s really hard to find flattering denim shorts?! If you’re in search of a new pair, I highly recommend these! I’ve also linked a few lightweight sweater tanks for you to try out.
