Happy  Monday! 

Is it me, or did the weekend fly by wayyyyy too quickly?  I feel like time is buzzing by so fast - there are so many events, vacations and deadlines coming up, it's hard to keep everything straight. Plus, I have so much exciting news to share with you, so it is tough to stay mum about it, but stay tuned .I promise it's worth it!

With summer just around the corner (hello, Memorial Day on Sunday), there's nothing I like more than a go-to dress (yes, I say this ALL the time). It wasn't until recently that I came across this streamlined, simple, tank dress, and knew it was 'the one.' This dress comes in five fantastic colors (yes, I ordered every color), is under $50, and runs true-to-size (I am wearing an XS). The fabric is thick enough that it isn't see-through, but is also not too heavy for the hot, humid weather ahead.  Not to mention, how fantastic is this girly purse from Vera Bradley? It has three separate compartments to fit all your essentials, as well as a discrete flap in the front of the bag for you to easily store your cell phone. I literally cannot get enough of it.

Patterns & Prints

Tobi dress ℅ | Kent Stetson clutch ℅ | Just Fab heels (similar style here - tons of colors and under $60) | Forever 21 necklace (similar style here & here) | Wrsitology watch ℅ | Henri Bendel sunglasses


These bold yellow heels and this geometric clutch have me already feeling like it's the weekend! I have been obsessed with every piece from Kent Stetson recently. His clutches are so unique and definitely make a statement. You know you won't be walking into a room full of women carrying the same bag with this standout piece.  They may not be for the timid at heart, but they speak volumes, and they're made right here in the USA. Shop his collection here - if these handbags don't turn your frown upside down, I don't know what will! I paired his colorful paint clutch with my Trina Turk jumpsuit last week.

This striped dress from Tobi, is out of jersey, and is the perfect item to throw on for a night out or for brunch (I am wearing a small). Plus, it's perfect for the warmer temps we've been having, and the side slit adds just a touch of oomph to this otherwise casual dress. Shop Tobi's other must have pieces like maxi dresses, blouses, shorts, bodycon dresses, and denim.
 Spend over $50 and your shipping is free and there's always free returns! 

Hope you have a great weekend! xo

I hope you all are having a fantastic week so far.

It has been a wet and dreary week here in Houston. I don't know what it is, but when the weather is like this, there is nothing I want to do more than sleep! I've been going to bed soooo early, and feel like I still can't get caught up. Does that ever happen to you? I always think I'll catch up on the weekends, but surely enough, when they roll around, we're up until 1am binge watching a show. We're currently on the second season of Rome. I know it's from a few years ago, but I didn't have HBO then, and I am completely obsessed! I just want to watch it all at one time!

Speaking of the weekend, this outfit has me feeling like it's Friday night. Who doesn't like wearing a mini-dress when they go out? As soon as I showed Adam these photos he said, "I think that's supposed to be a shirt." Haha. Whether it is or isn't, I absolutely love the print and color scheme of this paisley dress. The material is so soft, too. Unfortunately it's not longer available, but I linked two similar ones here and here.
