Summer Stripes

Happy Hump Day! It was so hard going back to work after a long weekend of sun and shopping, but it's almost the weekend again already! Almost everything I'm wearing in today's outfit I got this weekend and most of it is still on sale (like my top and bag!). I think one of my favorite trends so far this season has been interesting necklines, I've been gravitating toward anything cold-shoulder, one-shoulder, or off the shoulder. This breezy and flow-y one shoulder top is no exception, it's the perfect casual weekend top to stay cool this summer - and it's super comfy! 

Happy Memorial Day!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful and relaxing Memorial Day! This weekend officially kicks off summer and I'm definitely looking forward to the days of barbecues and pool days! I love this comfy and cute peplum top, it's perfect for casual summer days and paired with this bag (that's currently on major sale) and a pair of worn jeans would be perfect for July 4th as well! 

Friday Finds 5/25/2017 + Memorial Day Sales

Happy Friday! I'm so glad it's finally the long weekend - and the official kickoff to summer! This weekend I'm attending my fiancĂ©s' family reunion down in the literal middle of nowhere, Texas until Sunday and then I plan on parking my butt in a lounge chair by the pool until work on Tuesday. It has definitely been a stressful year so far between a full time job, wedding planning, and blogging so I'm really looking forward to the first official long weekend of the year to catch up on some sleep and relax, and maybe do a little shopping...

Engagement Party Outfit

Since it's "Wedding Wednesday," I wanted to share my look from my engagement party that my Maid of Honor threw for me a few weeks ago! She did a great job, and it was so nice of her since my parents just moved across the country so they weren't able to throw us one! I just LOVED this white cold-shoulder sundress - it was the perfect amount of casual and it's a dress that I will definitely be wearing all summer long! Plus it's under $50! 

Bandana Top

Hello Summer! Unfortunately my schedule hasn't changed, but with a bunch of my friends graduating this past weekend it's really starting to feel like summer! This fun bandana print top has quickly become my go-to on weekends now that it's warming up! I am in love with the neckline and it's so light and breezy that it's perfect for hot Dallas days...plus wouldn't this be the perfect Memorial Day look?

Friday Finds 5/19/2017

Happy Friday! This has felt like the longest week to me, so I'm definitely glad it's the weekend! When I was making this post, I sort of fell into a Nordstrom sale rabbit hole and ended up making the first post in this new series a Nordy sale goodies round up! 

This weekend, if you plan to do any shopping be sure to stock up on some adorable seasonal essentials!

ONE || I am in love with the sleeves on this dress! Such a unique take on seersucker for summer

TWO || I actually have had my eye on this dress for a while, I love the lace and ruffle details. For under $40 this is an absolute steal - and an adorable summer classic!

THREE || Unfortunately I don't have anymore weddings to attend this summer, but if I did I would absolutely wear this dress! I love the neckline, sleeves, color, and pattern. It would look perfect with a scrappy pair of black heels and a pair of statement earrings, plus it's almost half off!

FOUR || I love finding closet staples in the sale section. This white quilted Rebecca Minkoff bag would be a great and versatile addition to your closet - especially at this price point!

FIVE || I love Sam Edelman shoes (I tend to have to size 1/2 a size down, FYI) so finding a summer staple like these for under $100 is definitely enough to get me running to the mall this weekend!

SIX || A bold & minimalist pair of statement earrings are just SO on trend this summer!

SEVEN || As I have mentioned, I am loving embroidery this season, and these embroidered sandals are no exception - plus I love the low block heel on them!

EIGHT || A straw oversized beach bag is definitely a summer essential, and I've been lusting over this adorable pom pom and embroidered one for a while now - which is why I'm so excited to see it $100 off (yes, you read that right!)

NINE || I am obsessed with bell sleeves right now, and this one is under $30!

TEN || I love these sunglasses, they're such a fun and unique shape!

ELEVEN || Another top I've been loving for a while! Just so many fun details - from the laser cut look, to the bug ruffle, off shoulder neckline, and color; what's not to love?

Do you plan on hitting up some sales this weekend?
Happy Shopping!

Sweet Embroidered Dress

Ya'll this is one of my favorite dresses this season and it's back in stock (and under $60!), I got it a while ago and have been meaning to post for you guys so I'm glad it's still available! The embroidery and scallops just make it so unique - especially at the price point. I originally bought it to wear to Easter service, but my fiancĂ© was sick that weekend so we stayed home - so I wore it this weekend for Mother's Day brunch instead. 

Pool Day Fun With Red Dolly Swimwear

This weekend definitely started to feel like summer here in Dallas - and I took advantage of every bit of sunshine I could! One of my favorite things about the summer is laying out by the pool every weekend and soaking up that vitamin D, which means I need a plethora of adorable swimsuits in my closet for just that! Isn't this vintage-inspired Red Dolly swimsuit is just too cute? When Heather from Red Dolly offered to let me pick out one of their suits, I just couldn't resist this fun cactus print -I know I'm not the only one loving anything cactus and southwest themed this season! 

Mother's Day Gift Guide

I'm not sure why, but this year has seemed to absolutely FLY by! I still cannot believe it's already May...I was sure I had more time to get in shape for swimsuit season! Regardless, Mother's Day is already upon us, and I still need to pick out the perfect gift - not that my mother hasn't been consistently reminding me with suggestions!

Products are linked in the images above, just click directly on the items!

Usually I take my mom out for a nice dinner for Mother's Day with a bouquet of flowers, but since she moved a few states away I'll have to be sure to send her something extra nice! I love giving people useful gifts that they will actually use, a new watch, a set of nice perfume, or a new pair of sunglasses just in time for summer are perfect for any mom!

Have you started Mother's Day shopping?

Bright Off the Shoulder Sundress

Hey guys! I know I've been a bit MIA lately, but hopefully I'm back for good now! For the past few weeks I've been completely swamped with work, extra work, wedding planning, events, plus some changes going on around here that you'll get to see soon! Sometimes being an adult is hard, y'all! Speaking of events, this past weekend I was in Florida (can you tell I'm sunburned?) for a family wedding, and this bright sundress was perfect for attending a casual rehearsal dinner in the Sunshine State!
