What to Wear on a Day Date

What to Wear on a Day Date

Black Scalloped Dress | Glitter Block Heels | Sunnies (similar) | Blush Bucket Bag Summer is coming to an end. First off, how? Second off, I am relieved. It has been HOT. With the end of summer comes the anticipation for fall but before we get there, let’s chat about Day Dates before those sunny days are old news. Day Dates are honestly one of my favorite things, ever. In San Diego, we took an entire day and just explored (see the full travel guide, here) which was essentially a Day Date for us. We rode scooters, sipped mid-day cocktails and I got sunburnt. That day, and memories from it, leave me with a happy heart. In an attempt to bring our Day Date home, we got out last Saturday around noon. We simply went to get a green smoothie (for Mack) and frozen yogurt (for me). We went to one of our favorite local spots, walked around for like ten minutes (before the heat scorched us) and then we headed back home. Although it was short and sweet, it was a welcomed break in the day. When dressing for a Day Date, whether it’s filled with plans or simply […]

Must-Have Black Jumpsuit Under $30

Must-Have Black Jumpsuit Under $30

Black Jumpsuit | Blush Feather Heels (sold out, similar) | Cat Clutch (old, I love this pom option too) | Sunglasses (similar) Sometimes when the heat of summer truly hits, the best opt out is to frequent your neighborhood bar, get a cold glass of champagne and remain in the air conditioning. That’s exactly what we did last weekend with our friends Jamie and Rob. I wore this must-have black jumpsuit (under $30!) and I felt like I was wearing my favorite silk jammies out in public (but it was acceptable). The material didn’t stick to me, hardly wrinkled and flowed nicely in the Florida humidity. I was so happy with how well it wore, I am wearing it this out this evening in San Diego! Although the pink feather heels didn’t make the trip (read why in this post), I packed my more neutral studded heels for the occasion. No matter what your weekend plans entail- whether attending an event or simply sipping happy hour drinks with your friends- this jumpsuit can take you there. Mack and I are in San Diego for our best friend’s wedding and so happy! We decided to fly out a few days early […]

Summer Shoe Showcase

Summer Shoe Showcase

Metallic Loafers | Spotted Slides | Sparkle Block Heels | Blush Feather Heels (sold out, similar) Was anyone else completely thrown off by the mid-week Independence Day holiday last week? I mean, I felt like Thursday was Sunday and it just had me out of my rhythm. This week, we are heading to the California (the O.C. theme song is blaring in my mind right now) so being out of my norm continues. I feel like this is the summer standard and I am SO excited because we are wedding bound. When I first arrived at Ole Miss, I met two friends that instantly became my closest friends. This weekend, one of those friends is tying the knot and I don’t think I’ve been this excited since my own wedding. Seriously. Before we go however, I wanted to share my summer shoes picks quickly. And mostly because I am trying to figure out how to bring the blush feather heels with me to San Diego. See here’s the thing, Mack and I always share a suitcase when we travel so I only bring items that can be worn more than once. Those blush heels are a strong one-time wear so […]

Three Outfit Ideas for Independence Day (That You Probably Already Have in Your Closet!)

Independence Day

White Linen Dress | Denim Jacket (similar) | Bamboo Clutch (similar) | Star Espadrilles | Tiered Tassel Earrings (almost identical) | Sunglasses (similar) Happy early Fourth of July! It feels so weird with the holiday falling in the middle of the week- like do we just take the day off or do we take an extra long weekend to really soak it in? I work from home so I am still trying to maneuver how that’ll work. I think I am just going to take Wednesday off… against my better judgement. 😂 Regardless, whether celebrating tomorrow or through the weekend, I wanted to offer some outfit inspiration that you probably already have on hand (we all LOVE that)! Without further ado, let’s jump in. Three Outfit Ideas for Independence Day White Linen Dress Everyone, and I mean everyone probably has some form of a white dress in their closet. This linen dress has been on repeat lately because #heatwave. Also, I wore this for a day of travel last month and it look me from the plane to a family luncheon with no problem at all. It wears well and even if it wrinkles, they aren’t noticeable (oh, and it’s under $50). […]

Gingham Dress for Summer & Life Lately

Gingham Dress for Summer

One-Shoulder Gingham Dress | Wedges (similar) | Sunglasses (see this post) | Louis Vuitton Never Full (Borrowed from my Mom) I hope everyone enjoyed the first official weekend of summer! I know the trendy thing to say right now is, “living my best life” but I will take it one step further and say that Mack and I are “living our summer life!” We have been so busy with family time (we have new baby nephew and we’re obsessed with him), beach time and travel time (we just got back from Texas and are California bound next month) that I’ve been side-tracked. And although I would normally get myself in a tiff over not adhering perfectly to my post schedule- I am giving myself some grace and just going with flow. And anyone who knows me will say that I am the exact opposite of a go with the flow type girl. But here’s to trying and just embracing this time Mack and I have together. Anyways, it’s no secret that I love gingham. Sometimes I think that I should just start over in my closet with just black and white. Besides blush, I really think I could live solely […]

Sneakers for Summer Under $100

Sneakers for Summer

Star Cut-Out Espadrille Sneakers (under $20!) I feel most myself when I am in a comfy t-shirt, jean shorts and a cute pair of sneakers. Something about the laid-back life that arrives each summer, makes me so happy. On the weekends, I barely wear makeup, we stay outdoors all day and usually go the beach. Our summer nights are passed with Cantina Laredo. They usually end with a movie after two Cabo Flips! We don’t dress up, we don’t stress out and a good pair of sneakers can take me through the entire day. I am sure you know the feeling. When I think about how much fun we have in the summer, I already have nostalgia knowing we won’t live in Florida’s panhandle forever. I snagged these star-cut out espadrille sneakers because I’ve never seen a sneaker better suited to serve me in the summer. The cut-outs allow for sand, sun and sipping through summer days without a care.  I linked a few additional options below (if you follow me on Instagram, you’ve already seen the pink perforated sneakers)! Do you live in sneakers, jean shorts and a t-shirt throughout the summer? I promise, that is when I am living […]

Bachelorette Little Black Dress Under $30

Bachelorette Little Black Dress Under $30

Bachelorette Little Back Dress (under $30!) [Sunglasses, Clutch, Shoes & Earrings are all from consignment stores around Denver (I may do an entire post about where the find the best stuff!)] I am heading to Austin tomorrow for my best friend’s bachelorette party! She truly is the reason I even know Mack. Obviosuly, I can’t wait to celebrate her with my favorite people from college in Texas this holiday weekend. Before I go however, I wanted to share this adorable, bachelorette party approved, little black dress. It’s under $30, but looks like $100. The quality does not match the price point- the fabric is thick, the ruffle sleeves aren’t flimsy and the mesh detailing doesn’t look cheap (if you know what I am saying). I bought this dress thinking there would be a night that we all wear black, while the bride shines in white. But, there aren’t any dress code requirements for the weekend so we’ll see if this number still makes the cut. Regardless, it’s the perfect pick for your weekend away with the girls. Okay, now onto my accessories. I swear my mom and I should be professional consignment shoppers. Even when I started this blog, I […]

How to Style a One Piece Swimsuit with Overalls

How to Style a One Piece Swimsuit

One Piece Swimsuit (also featured in this post!) | Overalls | Clutch (similar) | Sunglasses (similar) | Wedges Confession time… in my elementary school years I wore one thing and that was overalls. I had two pairs that I’d basically rotate all week. I am sure my teachers wondered if I only owned overalls, which I didn’t, but we like what we like! In fact, one of the first outfits I ever featured on my blog was this pair of skinny overalls (excuse the iPad photos 😂)! Some things never change. Here I am, pushing 28 and still dressing like a 3rd grader. #noshame Anyways, I would describe this pair above as the “boyfriend jeans” of overalls- they’re loose, comfortable and perfect for lounging. In the spring and summer we oftentimes go the beach (I hardly ever get in the water unless I am roasting), then walk around, ride our bikes or head to get lunch. I picked up these overalls because I knew they’d be cute styled over my one piece swimsuit all summer long! I featured this ruffle one piece a few weeks ago and I’ve worn it the beach a few times since. It’s perfect for beach […]

Trends to Try for Summer

Trends to Try for Summer

Clutch (I purchased mine at Hemline Sandestin, similar here and here) Even though I am currently in Denver where the weather seriously just needs to pick a side (snow one day, 70 degrees the next), summer is almost here! I know it’s already summer back home in Florida and I must say that I am missing our consistently hot weather. But I am happy to see my family nonetheless! I featured this wood clutch in last week’s post and had to dedicate a post solely to it because 🙌🏼. I saw this bag here and there last season but it’s back in full-force and if I am being honest… I jumped on the bandwagon. I couldn’t deny that I too wanted to sport this seemingly unrealistic handbag all summer. I am here to tell you however, that it actually conceals the contents better than you’d think. Furthermore, it’s not as unrealistic as it looks! To my surprise, this clutch functions and just happens to be statement-making! Who doesn’t love that? With my new fav clutch, I also wanted to share two additional trends to try this summer. I think you’ll find them easy to incorporate into your summer must-haves, too: Pastels- […]

What to Wear on a Sunday in the Spring

Spring Sunday Style

Polka Dot Dress | Star Espadrilles | Ark Bag (similar, I got mine at Hemline Sandestin) | Sunglasses (similar) A Sunday in the spring on the Emerald Coast is what dreams. are. made. of. A typical Sunday for Mack and me includes church, swinging through a coffee shop, meal prep and getting outside one way or another (usually via cruiser bike!). Sometimes if we’re feeling spontaneous we will head out to 30A for lunch and just soak up that #patiolife. Sundays are my favorite because they’re sweet and slow! Because we are usually going from church to coffee to lunching on a patio, I need a Sunday outfit that is suitable for all occasions. Here are my tips for what to wear on a Sunday in the spring: Find a conservative dress you love (ideally with a little pattern)- Polka dots are timeless. I’ve always loved the simple pattern (even when my strict all-girls high school tried to shut down my polka dot heels that I wore on the first day of my freshman year but that’s besides the point). To me, a small polka dot pattern rarely competes with my accessories so I like that it plays well with others. The […]
