Striped Summer Dress

| dress | espadrilles | straw bag | necklace 1 & 2 | earrings | bracelet |

Let me tell you about the easiest summer dress! The lightweight material and the soft stripe are the perfect combination for all your summer activities. I paired it here with my go-to espadrille, but this dress will also be great with a flat sandal. You could even make this look more casual with a denim jacket. Wear this dress right into the fall with a camel leather jacket and bootie. If you can’t tell, I’m all about options and versatility!

Happy shopping, friends! XO, MS

Hawaii Look #4

| dress others: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 | headband | earrings | espadrilles | bag: 1, 2, 3, 4 |

Hello from Hawaii again! Today, I’m sharing my fourth look of the trip and what might be my favorite. It’s hard for me to resist a puffy sleeve, as you can tell from my last three honeymoon looks. I love this dress for many reasons, but I really appreciate when a piece can be worn a variety of ways. I can wear this with a dressy heel and clutch for a summer wedding or dress it down with a pair of sneakers and my hair in a ponytail. Your options are endless with a piece like this! Check out the other dresses I love from this brand that I linked above.

These shoes have been another favorite spring/summer purchase of mine, and they’ve clearly been a favorite of y’alls. I love seeing how many of you have purchased them! Aren’t they comfortable?! And they for sure go with everything! If you haven’t tried these, you should.

Thanks for stopping by and for supporting this little side gig of mine! When you purchase through my links, I make a small commission. Much appreciated! XO, MS

Hawaii Look #3

| top | shorts | headband: 1, 2, 3, 4 | sandals | earrings | beach bag, other |

If I could go back to this day, I would! We were about to set sail on the Four Seasons’ beautiful catamaran for a sunset cruise around Lanai. One thing Henry and I were so impressed with and continue to talk about was the service we experienced while on the island. Every single person that we came in contact with who worked for the resort was so incredibly happy to be there and to help us with anything we may have needed. Yes, Henry and I enjoyed the scenery and being on the boat, but we also enjoyed getting to know the captain and the deckhands. What fun they were to be around and how cool it was to learn about their island life. The service definitely made our trip!

Note, I wore my hair in a braid to keep the wispies out of my face and wore shorts to make sure I didn’t have a Marilyn moment! In retrospect, I’m glad I made both choices.

Thanks for reliving our honeymoon with me! XO, MS

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

Spending this week with my high school girls in one of my favorite places couldn’t make me happier! So far we’ve spent lazy days on the beach, brunched at Great Southern Cafe in Seaside and celebrated our girl Allie’s 26th birthday with pizza on the porch! I’m soaking up this sun and these friendships.

White Overalls

Overalls aren’t just for 12-year-olds, people!! These have been in my closet for at least four years but have gotten pushed to the back overtime. After seeing someone else rock theirs, I got inspired to create a new look with mine! What do yall think?! I linked the shorts version too if those are more your speed.

Thanks for stopping by! XO, MS

PS I’m still making the small beaded bracelets if you’d like for me to make you a set! Three for $18!

Denim skater dress

This dress style isn’t usually my go-to for whatever reason, but I couldn’t resist this denim number! I dressed it up Saturday night with these wedges and flower earrings for a friend’s birthday celebration, but I will also pair it with strappy sandals and a ponytail for a casual summer day. The price isn’t bad either!

Let me know what you think! XO, MS

Colorful Safari Printed Dress

I am loving the unique and colorful pattern of this dress – it just makes me smile! Henry and I went to a casual birthday party Saturday night in Houston, and this was the perfect outfit for an outdoor hangout. I forgot just how hot Texas summers are! The night was filled with cake, corn hole and downtown views, and the perfect start to the summer.

I will definitely elevate this dress with these gold heels and a clutch for a fancier summer party or date night.

I hope you have a great week, and thanks for stopping by! XO, MS
