Elevated Work Outfit: Oversized Blazer + Joggers

Ask and you shall receive! I have been getting questions to share more work appropriate outfits, that aren't dresses, but also aren't just your boring work pants and blouse. I get it. I often find myself experiencing work-wear woes, too. It's the tension of wanting to look professional, but also wanting your personal style to shine through - and sometimes your personal style isn't always work appropriate. 

I find that if you stick to one tried and true work staple, like a blazer, you can have a little fun with the other pieces your incorporate in - i.e., joggers. Another simple trick is to add a statement piece to your classic work outfit, such as a colorful/printed blazer or fun shoes. Play around with the pieces in your closet and take a piece that you might wear in your off-time and try to pair it with a professional piece, to see if it goes. It's a simple way to blend your professional and off-duty sides together.

White Eyelet Top

You guys, how is it already the end of May? I swear the months are just flying by right now. We have been extremely busy with work, which makes the days feel short and long, all at the same time. You know what I mean? Brandon and I are headed out to San Diego in a few days for some much needed R&R, and I am so freaking excited. We haven't been on a trip since October, which is C R A Z Y, for us. One of my goals was to travel less, this year. Which, I know it probably sounds crazy to want to travel less, but we just traveled so much, last year, that I ended up feeling more stressed and scattered, than rested and centered. I felt like I needed to make it a goal to be home a little more, this year. But now that it's been 7 months since our last trip...I'm going a little stir crazy! We have two other summer vacations planned, right now, but I'd say I'm sticking pretty good to my goal. Do you have any summer trips planned?

This white eyelet top is such a pretty addition to my closet. At first, I was afraid it was a little sheer and I'd have to wear a tank underneath, but I ended up wearing a bralette instead and it worked out just fine. I paired it with my favorite distressed denim, which have been in my closet for years! I actually found them on sale for  60% off, making them only $30, so you should definitely take advantage of that deal. (They are normally $80+!)

I've been living in these flat mules this spring. They are light and airy and so comfortable! They go with just about everything, and are only $25. I recently added this bag to my closet, too, and I'm pretty much obsessed. You'll be seeing it in heavy rotation, for sure.







Best Sandals For Spring/Summer Under $100

Now that it's officially been warmer around here, I've been slowly but surely switching out my Winter wardrobe for Spring/Summer finds. I have been on the hunt for a good new Summer sandal, so I thought I would share a few faves I am coming across with. The only problem now, is that I've found so many cute ones, I don't know where to start.

If you can't tell by the collage below, I have a thing for neutrals.

Best Sandals For Spring/Summer Under $100
Wooden Wedge - I am majorly swooning over these Steve Madden wedges. They would go with just about anything from jeans to summer dresses. They are definitely a contender for getting added to my closet.

Clear Strap Sandals - I added these to my closet last summer and am so glad I did. They add a fun and expected touch to any dress, and step up the normal nude heel game.

White Slide Sandals - I've been eyeing these for months and think it's time to take the plunge. I love a good slide sandal and these white ones are so fun for summer.

Tan Slide Sandal - These are a great knock off of the Hermes version that have been a hit for years. If there is one sandal I think you actually need to add to your closet, this is it.

Classic Nude Strappy Sandal - If there is one sandal staple, you absolutely need to add to your summer wardrobe, it's a nude strappy sandal. I have these exact shoes in their tan color, and I really love them. They go with just about everything!

Nude Mule - These are definitlely going to be finding a home with me! I am such a sucker for a good mule and this nude color is a classic.

Platform Espadrille - Espadrille sandals are having a huge moment right now, and these platform espadrilles by Steve Madden are cute as can be! 

Clogs - I've never been a huge clog fan, they just don't do it for me, but I'm all about these ones! I feel like they would be perfect with jeans and dresses alike. They are definltey a contender to add to my summer wardrobe.

Espadrille Wedge - I've seen these ones on a few bloggers, and they are super cute. (I've heard they are comfy, too!) This is a classic summer shoe, that almost never goes out of style. And, at only $80, they're budget friendly.

Strappy Lace Up Sandal - I feel like every clost needs a good lace up sandal. They are just fun! Nude goes with everything, so if you are wanting to upgrade from your classic strappy sandal, but still want something that is versatile, go with this. 



One of the Most Beautiful Spring Wedding Guest Dresses + Link-Up

It's that time of year where the wedding invitations start pouring in. It's so funny, I was just telling someone I was bummed I didn't have any upcoming weddings to wear this dress to, and then BAM...two invitations showed up in the mail. Life is funny.

When it comes to finding the best spring wedding guest dresses, I stick to a few simple tips.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SPRING WEDDING GUEST DRESSES


1. Never ever, EVER, anything white/cream/ivory, or any color that even remotely resemble the bride's gown. This is her day, and she should be the only one in white.

2. Nothing to sexy or showy. Again, this is the bride's day and you don't want to draw attention to yourself by wearing a head turning ensemble.

For Spring wedding guest dresses, specifically, I really love florals. Florals prints exude all the Spring vibes, and I think they are the perfect accompaniment to the big day, during the Spring season.

I am really loving this one from WAYF. Speaking of WAYF, they actually have their own wedding line now. I can tell you right now, if I were getting married today, I'd be all about their bridal section. (If you want to see my wedding pics from 5 years ago, you can see them here.)

Polka Dot Wrap Top

How is it already Friday? I swear this week has flown by. We are officially in our busy season with work, and I swear sometimes I don't even know what day it is, because of it. Anywho...

I recently picked up this cute polka dot wrap top from WAYF, and I'm obsessed! It's the perfect top to wear for both work and play. I paired my polka dot wrap top with my favorite ponte skinny pants - that are perfect for work, and my favorite white patent leather heels (currently on sale for $34!) 

If you aren't familiar with ponte pants, I swear by them for work. They are flattering and comfortable like jeans, but look work appropriate. Ann Taylor usually has some great options, that I have bought before, but I could only find these ones in gray, there currently. (Psst...they are also having a huge 40% off everything sale right now, with code SWEETTREAT.) 

Speaking of sales, I know a lot of you always ask me about my earrings (like the ones I am wearing here). I actually buy a lot of them from this store, which is having a major sale, too. You can get up to 30% off, if you buy 3 pieces, so it's the perfect time to stock up on your baubles.

Hope you guys have an amazing weekend! As always, outfit deets are linked below the photo.

Stripe Carousel Top

Anyone else need a weekend from their weekend? Mine was SO exhausting, in the best kind of ways. We started the weekend with a birthday party for a friend, then Saturday was the Junior League's Annual Derby party - which is always a blast. (Seriously, if you live in town and aren't coming, you need to be!) We rounded out the weekend with a Sunday morning walk to a local coffee shop, before I spent 2 hours raking up leaves and twigs in the yard. Sunday afternoon, we went to celebrate a friend's birthday at our favorite cantina, and then I ended the weekend getting to listen to Richard Blanco (the 5th EVER U.S. inaugral poet) speak at a local lecture series. It was amazing! 

How was your weekend? Did you celebrate Cinco de Mayo or Derby? 

If you're looking for a fun, festive and summery top, you've got to snatch this  carousel top up from VICI. It's literally the cutest! I am also super obsessed with these BlankNYC deconstructed denim shorts I just got. They are only $32 (normally $78) and are even husband approved. ;) Last but not least, I am living for these new orange satin knotted slide sandals. (Not husband approved. But I don't care. I think they are cute!) 

Happy Monday to all!
