Memorial Day Edit

Memorial Day weekend is nearly here and with that comes the unofficial start of summer.  Who else is ready? Today I'm sharing my personal picks for the weekend's must-haves and the versatile pieces you'll want to have on hand.  Let's start things off with one piece that works overtime all year round, the white blouse.  From button down boyfriend styles to those that flatter the female figure, this closet staple is always on my packing list.  I love it with absolutely everything from well-fitting capris and sexy pencil skirts to boyfriend denim and sailor shorts.  Shoes that can do double-duty (think sandals with fun details or a pop of bright) will pair perfectly with denim cutoffs and work just as beautifully with flirty skirts and sundresses.  A statement bag and this ruffle top one piece round out the list for me.  When your pieces can pair up or down and work all weekend, the packing is light and easy.  After all, we will be on holiday so let the living be easy!  I linked these pieces for you below in case you need to round out your MDW packing list.  Have a wonderful day everyone!

Classic Chic

With a love for fashion and taste for style ever present in all you do, it can be very easy to get swept up by current trends and of the moment must-haves.  I'm definitely no stranger to that.  What I like to keep foremost in my mind are the simple ways to create looks that are on trend rather than trendy.  Classic pieces that honor tradition while embodying a modern edge.  For me, one piece that effortlessly does that is the striped top.  Best when done in navy and white, this closet workhorse can pair with a pencil skirt as easily as it can top off distressed denim.  A chic little pair of espadrilles are a great complement to this look.  Subtle yet striking accents like this scarf, these earrings and this tote tie the entire look together to create a true modern elegance.  In case you're wondering, the weekend's royal nuptials may have (aka definitely) influenced this post and the understated elegance feel.  I don't know about you but I was absolutely enthralled with every.single.moment.  Isn't love grand?

Happy Monday loves!

Weekend Vibes

Hello, weekend...we've been expecting you!  Friday's here and that laid back vibe is going strong.  I'm loving it and am guessing you do too.  To get things going, I'm highlighting some fun off-duty looks that are perfect for these late spring/early summer weekends we have coming up.  Soft colored shorts, fun little tees and flirty dresses have the to-do list covered.  From hitting the farmer's market to   a great date night, these are the pieces that effortlessly take you everywhere.  I also find a signature scent to be a relaxing way to let your senses unwind and enjoy some well-deserved downtime.  This one is my summer go-to.  It's sweet yet fresh and clean and always makes me feel ready for romance.

Speaking of love-filled anyone else absolutely giddy over this weekend's royal wedding? Aaaah, I truly cannot wait.  We'll be grabbing our scones early this Saturday as my friend Pamela says but it'll definitely be worth it!  Wishing you all a great one!

May Favorites

Happy Wednesday!  Who else can't quite believe it's the middle of May already?! Wow! I must be having a lot of fun, haha.  With the month halfway in, that means it's time for a May Favorites post.  I've gathered together some of my most-loved items this month that are just too good not to share.  While I usually start with a favorite piece that I have (or want) hanging in my closet, this time I have to hand the crown to this beauty game changer.  Ouai's volumizing spray is the best styler I've tried, possibly ever.  If you know me and the depth of my beauty closet, you know that is not an easily earned title.  One use of approximately 5 - 6 sprays leaves my hair, soft, glossy, bouncy and most of all...full.  One product, five most wanted results.  Before this, I could only achieve some (not even all) of these results by combining four or five different stylers.  There's only one other haircare product I love as much as this.  You can find its details here.  In other news, I'm also loving straw bags, maxi skirts in pretty prints and subtly sexy sundresses.  This one is incredible.  My other favorites are linked for you below.  I hope your month is making you smile....MDW will be here soon!

One Piece Wonder

Happy Monday lovelies!  I hope everyone enjoyed a beautiful Mother's Day with the ones they love.  Now for the work week, let's see how we can give it some love.  Despite what the non-fashion minded will say, loving what you're wearing really can make (or break) your day.  When you feel good, you look good and that shows from your smile to your stride.  That's why clothes that look just as great as they feel are my holy grail.  Perhaps the greatest one being, the jumpsuit.  This one and done piece looks amazing from head to toe and fakes the effort level to the max.  What could be easier than slipping in, zipping up and looking fantastic?  I knew you'd agree, haha.  What's even better is how you can pair it down with slides and a big beach floppy or take it higher with heels, a blazer or jacket and a killer clutch and be ready to take the boardroom.  Tons of styles are available right now in some of my favorite stores and sites (here, here and here).   I've also linked my favorites for you below.  Let me know what your thoughts are and what you're coveting right now...have a wonderful day everyone!
