There are those fantastic days where the weather is amazing, everything goes according to plan, and the sun hits you just right. Lucky for me, Maddy happened to be the good luck charm to make all that fall together for me, because lately that just hasn't been the case.
What is usually happening? Second-day hair (sometimes eye makeup too) and a messy mind. So that's my goal for the summer: simplify and do. I feel like I waste too much time worrying about how much I have to do sometimes that I lose track of actually doing it. Thanks for sticking around for the ride...I'll def report back. For now let's talk about how insanely talented my photographer/genius friend Maddy is to location scout and make my disheveled self look slightly put-together.
My tank dress is from Dottie, and is actually just a tank I decided to make work as a dress (in size large). I love the stone washed effect along with the rosy hue, I thought it would be the perfect summer throw on!
My three layer necklace is also from Dottie, and though this exact one is no longer available, they've got tons of cute choker and shorter options to choose from for a similar look!
This kind of floppy hat is my favvvoriteeee! I think it can be worn year-round and this color is the perfect neutral!
I had to finish the look with a messy fishtail, and only partially because I happened to have napped on this fishtail prior to these photos. Part of what I love so much about braids is their ability to transform a look depending on how you hold your hands, what products you use, and when you just so happen to mash it into your pillow after work, well that's just a bonus as far as texture goes.
I hope you all had the best Memorial Day weekend, and I'll talk to you so soon!
Thanks for reading :)
I'm pretty sure we all need a good tulle skirt.
Ever since I became obsessed with Carrie Bradshaw in "Sex and the City", I knew I had to find a tulle skirt and snatch as much fashion inspo from her as possible. I'm thrilled to finally report that I've found my white (tulle) whale. I found her at a thrift store for just $6.
Miracles do happen.
My strappy sandals are from Nine West, and I love pulling the black from the jacket down to my feet as well! They help combat going too girly with the tulle.
Happy Sunday, friends!
It simply won't stop raining...at least not for long.
The good news is that despite the flood, we've actually gotten some warm weather! This is something to be celebrated, and what screams warm weather louder than a backless cropped halter?
The grey tie top is from Dottie, and I can't wait to style it all summer long!
I paired this old printed midi skirt to dress up the top, and I'm glad I finally found a way to wear this skirt after having it for...basically ever.
What styles have you been loving lately?
Happy weekend, friends! I'll talk to you soon.
We finally had a break in the rain, and boy did I enjoy the sun...
for all of 3 hours.
As a born and raised hoosier, I take what nice weather I can get.
My cream printed romper is an old Hollister (at TJ Maxx) find, and it's exactly this type of day that makes me glad I've got it in my arsenal. The fabric is light and breathable, and the print is perfect for spring!
I also just so happen to be a sucker for cute packaging so...safe to say I'm sold on this company!
I paired my grey strap wedges to pull out the grey in the pattern of the romper...and because I wear these babies with so much in warmer weather! They're from DSW, and so comfortable.
I love how the olive jacket complements the peachy blush in the floral pattern, and I always have a lightweight jacket on me this time of year!
Have you been in a fashion slump and blame the rain like me? Let's hope we escape soon...
Behind the dainty days is a whole lot of planning. And coffee.
