Vivid Floral Sundress

Dress | Shoes | Purse (similar style here & here) | Necklace"H" Bracelets | Sunglasses

This dress has me daydreaming of Hawaii. I love the bold, beautiful flowers, and the vivid color scheme. Although it may be seen as a bit 'loud' for everyday wear, I feel like it's the perfect everyday dress, whether you're in the office, or out at brunch. 

I actually wore this three times this week (don't judge), and got countless compliments on it. My friend and I were talking over lunch the other day how every month we feel like we have 'our look,' and will wear the same thing over and over again. When you have a versatile piece, like this one, I feel like it's easy to do. Pairing it with different shoes and accessories also helps mix it up.

Perfectly Polished

Jacket | Skirt | Blouse (similar style here & here) | Purse (budget friendly version here) | Shoes | Earrings (similar style here) | Bracelets

Hi, friends! How was your weekend? We went to Fredrickburg, which is about a four hour drive away from Houston. I hadn't been before, but for those of you that don't know, Fredrickburg is the heart of Texas wine country! Having lived in San Francisco, it is hard to beat Napa County, but Fredricksburg was undoubtedly charming.  We stayed at a cute B&B, and visited several wineries. We also indulged in sooooo much yummy food, and of course you know I did some shopping. 

It has been hard to get back into the groove this week - why does that always happen after a long weekend? But, this work-wear inspired look is giving me a subtle push to get down to business and back to work! Both my jacket and skirt are on sale, and not only pair perfectly together, but look great by themselves, as well.

Green Geometric Dress

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

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.
