White after Labor Day

| top | jeans | sandals | bag | sunglasses |

Y’all have seen me style this striped top with the matching pant here, so I wanted to show you another way to wear it especially since it’s on clearance right now! Because the top is slightly cropped, I styled it with my high waisted white jeans. Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t wait wear white after Labor Day because you CAN! Imagine these jeans with a cozy sweater and an ankle bootie in the fall! Cute, right?! If you follow me in the liketoknow.it app, then you also saw that my sandals are on sale too! Get these deals while they are still available!

Happy Humpday!

Liberty London Blouse

It’s me wearing my favorite pair of white jeans AGAIN, but this time I styled them with a smocked blouse, a trend you’ve seen everywhere this summer. This Liberty London blouse offers a feminine and figure flattering style. It’s also cute paired with denim shorts or a flirty white skirt! I have loved wearing this top all summer and plan on taking it to Chicago with me this weekend! Get it now while it’s on sale and sizes are available.

Another trend I’m testing out is the clip trend. Aren’t they cute? I was worried these wouldn’t hold back my thick hair, but they do! I love this trend, like the headband trend, because you can incorporate it into your wardrobe without breaking the bank! Click the link above to see all the color options.

Happy Humpday!

This Yvonne S blouse has brightened my closet and has brought me great relief during these hot summer days. Each blouse designed by Yvonne Sporre is handprinted on eco-friendly fabric that couldn’t be any breezier. Not to mention, because every blouse is handmade, no two garments are the same!

Summer Tops

Summer staples include white jeans, denim shorts and tops you can style with both! Y’all liked the round up I did a few weeks ago of fun summer tops, so I decided to share a few of my new favorites. Above is a photo of one of my go-to white jean looks from last summer.

16 tops to wear with white jeans

IMG_3490.jpg

We all know that white jeans are a staple for the spring and summer, so I’m highlighting some of my favorite tops to style with them. You can wear almost anything with your white jeans. Just think of them as a blank canvas! You can style an all white look, pair them with your brightest floral, your softest pastel or a structured black blazer for four completely different outfits. As you can see, I love a feminine blouse, so that’s what is mainly shown below!

Gingham Style

| blouse | jacket | jeans | flats |

If you’ve been following along for a while now, you’ve probably figured out how I love gingham. Tops, dresses, ribbons… You name it, and I’ve worn it. When I stumbled upon this detailed gingham blouse, I knew I had to have it. Not to mention I got it for a serious deal! Now you know two things I can’t resist: gingham and a deal. Get spring ready by recreating my look from the links above!

Here are a few other times I’ve worn gingham over the years: 1, 2, 3, 4.

You may have also noticed that I’ve been wearing my hair like this a lot lately. I’ve been French braiding it half way down by head and then putting it in a ponytail. My hair will stay out of my face all day, and it looks cute! No slicked back pony for me! It also holds everything back when working out.

Friday Finds: White Denim

fridayfinds

Every girl needs a pair of white jeans for spring! Maybe even two or three… Fun fact: you can wear white denim all year round. I know some people are scared to try it, but don’t listen to the “no white after Labor Day” rule. While it’s still chilly, pair your favorite cozy sweater with white skinnies and a bootie. I’ll be updating my white denim this season because mine have become a little dingy. A fresh pair is calling my name!

Fur Real

| blouse | jeans | sneakers | sunnies |

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! I sure did! Henry was in town, and of course we ate lots of great meals and tried to bare the 100 degree heat. Saturday lunch was at the Porch, one of Henry’s absolute favorites, and then we ventured to HG Supply on Lower Greenville for dinner. After church we had a quick bite at East Hampton, another Henry Shepherd staple, before he hit the road. A relaxing weekend is just what the doctor ordered, only next time I wish he could stay longer.

I know I get on here and always have a new obsession, but this one is FUR REAL. These leopard sneakers are a new staple for me! I love the ruggedness and edge they add to any outfit. This weekend I paired them with a sundress which was perfect for our afternoon ride on the Bird Scooters. And, if you haven’t ridden those yet, hop to it!

P.S. My sneakers are on sale, so get them while they’re hot!

Florals, For Sure

I’ve been traveling more than usual, so that explains why my blog posts haven’t been as consistent. But now that I’m back, I wanted to share some fun pieces for spring.

First of all, florals and ruffles are HOT. Both of these trends are a must this spring and summer, so I’ve linked a few more of my favorites below. I’m also in-love with these white resin earrings! They pop against any hair color and match every outfit. Don’t forget to check out the embroidered straw clutch above. You can always count on Hazen and Co to spice up your accessory game.

florals and ruffles: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Life in the City

No dress code, no problem… I found great fun deciding what to wear each day to work. With few limitations, I got to be creative and get inspiration from the people with which I worked.

There was no shortage of art and culture in the city. The Met, The MOMA, and The Whitney are all worth a visit.

These shoes were a lifesaver for Margaret and me. I don’t think we could’ve walked the miles we did in our sandals and loafers. We hated ourselves for following the Adidas trend for the first couple of days, but then we got over it.

Well, you know me and murals. Had to find at least one while I was in town.

I’d rather spend less on a pair of trendy denim than splurging, and instead, I invest in the classics.

Side note, I’m obsessed with the cobblestone streets.

I love a two piece set that you can wear together and separate for many different looks.
