A white dress I think I’m going to love forever! The openwork detail, the tiered midi length and the loose fit. Just a perfect piece that you can wear with a sneaker, neutral sandal or a bootie to take us into fall. I took this dress for a spin in Spain and was so glad I packed it. If you’re planning a trip abroad or an extended trip anywhere for that matter, I would highly suggest packing dresses like this. Dress them up and down, and the loose fit keeps you comfortable all day.
I can’t wait to get this dress back from the dry cleaners, so I can wear it again! This time, with a bootie because it’s already cooling off here in Chicago.
Thanks for stopping by! XO, MS

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.

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

Y’all are probably tired of seeing me in white dresses by now, but don’t worry, in 25 days I’ll add a little more variety to my wardrobe! Hint hint wedding day is fast approaching! I found this dress on sale when Henry and I visited Chicago back in January, and I had to pounce. I have dreamed of wearing something by this designer during our engagement season, so I couldn’t pass this dress up. An extra special dress for an extra special season.
I wore this outfit on my bachelorette trip this weekend, and I definitely felt like a bride. Of course, the “soon-to-be bride” sash and veil helped – shout out to my moh, Margaret, for all the gear! Although this dress is almost sold out, I linked some other white dresses by this designer for you to check out. I hope you find something you love!

Like I’ve mentioned before, white dresses have been on my mind. With our wedding fast approaching, I’ve purchased a few for different events we’ve had throughout our engagement. I wore this one last weekend to a tea in Memphis with sweet friends and family. I love the detailing and the way it fits, and although it’s sold out, I found a few similar options for you.
I am also wearing two pieces that were made by friends! How cool is it that I get to share some of their creations!! The headband was handmade by a friend I went to high school with. She has started her own hairstyling and hair accessory company that you must check out – click here. I’m also wearing earrings designed by a dear friend who started her jewelry company as a young girl. What a business she has built. Shop her beautiful pieces here.
Of course, you don’t have to be a bride to incorporate a beautiful white dress to your spring and summer wardrobe! I plan on wearing this to church and even on our honeymoon.
I hope you have a great rest of your week! XO, MS
