Peplum and Ties, A Nautical Look

Peplum J Crew Top

You might remember way back in May, yes I did say wayyyy back, when Kristin and tackled some summer trends and dressing room selfies. Where did that time go?! We had a great time shopping together for the season but once I got home and looked at the photos I really regretted not purchasing the silk top from J. Crew featuring peplum and ties. It was still full price at the time but I loved the look. Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I stumbled upon it on the sale rack. I snapped it...

Plaid Shirts: Our Forever Fall Favorite

Plaid-Horiz

If you made me choose one piece that I would have to wear every single fall season, it would probably be the plaid shirt. Plaid shirts never go out of style and I have more of them in my wardrobe than a girl probably needs, bwah! But I can't seem to help myself. I appear to be curating a large and in charge plaid shirt collection with no plans of stopping said curation any time soon. You see, my fall wardrobe, like most of my wardrobe, has a decidedly casual chic vibe. And plaid shirts...

Embroidered Sleeveless Sundress

Embroidered Sleeveless Sundress

A few months ago Kristin and I shared some of our dressing room selfies as we prepped for updating our summer wardrobes. One item I ended up purchasing is this Caslon embroidered sleeveless sundress from Nordstrom. I had never tried on the brand until that day and I found several things I really liked. I'd been meaning to then show you guys this embroidered sleeveless sundress in an outfit post and yet somehow the summer started slipping by. I did end up wearing it during my trip to Napa a few weeks ago and thought I...

Feeling Fancy Free in this Free People Maxi

Free People Maxi Dress Tie

In my mind, a day blissfully wine tasting in Napa calls for a look that is feminine and pretty. Which is just what I had in mind when Floyd and I headed to California last week with friends. My friend Angie and I were running in the Napa to Sonoma half marathon and decided to make it a kid-free getaway with our husbands for a few days. After all, why go all the way to Napa without sampling the wine, right?! Despite the West Coast heat wave, I truly felt fancy free in this Free...

Casual Summer Style

If you've been around these parts during the summer before, you know it was only in the past year or so that I truly embraced shorts. My shape has changed so much since I had children, like most mamas, and it took me a while to accept my new curves. That being said, once I threw caution to the wind and gave shorts a chance again, I never looked back. Being cool and comfortable is so much better than stressing over a dimple or two. Casual summer style is where it's at folks! And this summer...

Yes that's me balancing a Stitch Fix box on my head. What can I say? Having fashion delivered to my door makes me giddy and encourages me to do all the silly things. In this summer Stitch Fix Try On and Unboxing video, I'm showing you up close and personal what worked and what didn't. I love seeing what comes in everyone else's box, so why not give you a peek into mine?! These gold earrings were fun and so my style! I just wasn't ready to spend over $30 for them since they weren't really...

How to Wear Summer Stripes

If there is one "trend" that I turn to time and time again in the summertime, it's stripes. You may remember a while back when Megan and I shared our dressing room selfies. Well, I walked away from that shopping trip with the sweetest striped dress and after wearing it on a little golf getaway at Bay Hill that the hubs and I went on and I can't wait to share with you next week, by the way, I can guarantee that I will be wearing it non-stop until fall's cooler temps find their way to...
