Green Geometric Dress

All smiles because it's almost the weekend! 

It's been hot, hot hot. Even though we haven't hit 100 degrees yet, summer is definitely here. Staying cool on a hot day is easier with this cute geo-print dress. The material is so airy and light, not to mention the cut is so simple and chic. I love a dress that can go day-to-night, and that can easily pair with both tennis shoes and heels. To be honest, when I first bought it I loved it so much, I've since bought it in four other colors/prints. It is by the same company as the blue leopard dress (just a different style) I posted a few weeks ago! What can I say, when something works, it just works. 

I recently got these shoes because I love the pearl embellishment. When I first saw them, I thought they may be too dressy to wear all day long, but actually the nude color and the chunky heel offset the pearls, making it more casual. They also come in black and are 40% off!! They run TTS, as does my dress;)

Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! Thank you to all the brave men and women that have fearlessly served our country. I always think of my amazing grandpa who severed during WW2, and was part of the 6th Ranger Battalion.

The Perfect Outfit for a Summer Wedding






Dress (similar here, here & here) | Fascinator | Shoes (budget friendly version here) | Clutch (budget friendly version here) | Earrings | Bracelet | Sunglasses



Summer wedding season is officially here! Whether you're attending an intimate outdoor ceremony, or enjoying a black-tie soiree, this is the perfect look for you. 

Taking a cue from our English neighbors 'across the pond', my wedding guest attire definitely has a royal wedding vibe. While we all may have swooned over Harry & Megan, I was paying more attention to what the guests were wearing. More specifically, their fascinators. 

I've always been drawn to statement headpieces. From hats, to fascinators and hair pins, we are seeing these pieces more and more regularly. No longer are they just reserved for the Kentucky Derby or a Royal Wedding - I mean, why shouldn't we all feel like royalty from time to time?! 

This beauty is from Karen Morris Millinery, and I couldn't be more pleased with the gorgeous craftsmanship. Not only do they have a expansive collection, but they also do custom orders and every piece is made by hand. Swoon! Never again will you have to worry about something not matching your outfit.

Go-To Everyday Dress









Dress | Shoes | Purse (similar style here & here) | Sunglasses | Necklace | Bracelet | Earrings 

Each season I love sharing with you some of my go-to everyday looks. You know, the outfit you can throw on for any occasion, from running to the grocery store, to an impromptu date night. It can be dressed up or down, and can be paired with different accessories, jackets, etc., creating multiple looks out of one piece. 

If you haven't guessed, this leopard print dress is my current spring go-to. I know I'll definitely be wearing it for seasons to come, as well. The cut is so complimentary, and would look good on all body shapes & sizes. It also comes in several other patterns and colors, just in case leopard print isn't your thing. You can view all of the print/color options here

I loved playing up the color in the dress by pairing it with these cute rainbow baubles from fellow Houstonite, Golden Strand Jewelry. Rainbow pave pieces have been popping up all over, and I couldn't be happier. Not only are they bright and cheery, but they go with everything, which is great when you're on the go and travel. 

Have a great weekend!
