OOTD (Saturday and Sunday)!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Monday!  I hope that you had a fantastic weekend! Ours was great, but it was incredibly busy.  Saturday was non-stop for us; we went from one event to the next and I was exhausted by 8:00 p.m.  I am SO looking forward to Memorial Day weekend so that we can rest and relax a bit.  We don’t have anything planned and I am super excited about that!

Today, I am sharing two outfits that I wore this weekend.  I am totally loving floral dresses, skirts, and patterns, so I wanted to wear bold looks that would get me through the busy weekend.

Here is the outfit that I wore on Saturday.  Photos by Samantha Moore Photography:

And, here is another way that I plan to style the skirt.  I cannot wait to wear this beautiful skirt and pattern again SOON!  The skirt fits TTS.

And, here is the outfit that I wore to church yesterday.  I LOVEEEE this dress.  It is an easy breezy dress that fits SO well and that is incredibly flattering.  The cinched waist is just perfection.  The styling possibilities are seriously endless.  There are multiple colors in the dress from which to pull.  Yesterday, I wore the look with baby blue-ish velvet sandals and a gold velvet bucket bag.  But, I have also styled this beautiful dress and print with calf hair sandals and a baby blue-ish color bucket bag.  Burgundy accessories and shoes would look great with this dress, too!  I sized down from a size 16 to a 14, so the dress fits slightly large in my opinion.  This is one of those dresses that you can grab and go!   I love effortless looks like this during the hottest days of summer.  I highly recommend this beauty:

And, here is the dress styled with these gorgeous J. Crew Calf Hair Sandals (which I also highly recommend; they’re super stylish and comfortable).

Again, this dress is SOOO versatile, fun, and comfortable!

Friday Faves!

Hi Everyone!

In case you missed it, my blog post yesterday featured fun floral dresses!  The dresses that I featured in that post are part of my Friday Faves, but I am also crushing hard on gingham, bold floral prints, and stripes!  The following dress is SOOOO fabulous.  This dress feels so good on and it will be a major summer staple for me.  This is really a don’t think too much about it outfit.  I love these kinds of looks when it’s super hot outside. The dress is incredibly comfortable.  I took my normal size XL in the dress, but please note that the scoopneck part of the dress is a bit low on me.  I plan to have the straps of the dress adjusted a bit.  This dress looks great with a denim jacket or with a fun solid color sweater (or it is equally adorable if you wear it sleeveless!).  I highly recommend this beauty:

Fun Floral Dresses!

Hi Everyone!

If you have followed my blog for awhile, you know that I LOVEEE pencil skirts.  A pencil skirt is hands down one of my major wardrobe staples.  I love a classic pencil skirt that can be dressed up or down with a fun graphic t-shirt or with a classic denim jacket.  Lately, however, I have been SOOO drawn to gorgeous spring dresses that I can pair with a solid color J. Crew Jackie Cardigan or with a denim jacket.  I have been loving flowly, bold and fun floral patterns that stand out.  The Jackie cardigan is also a wardrobe staple for me.  The cardigan is great quality and it pairs SO well with many of the pieces in my wardrobe.

Here are IRL pictures of two of my favorite fun floral dresses.  The first one is stunning.  The pattern is absolutely breathtaking.  I HIGHLY recommend this dress.  The styling options are endless because there are so many beautiful colors in the dress.  Fit is TTS to slightly large:

I am also loving the fun floral pattern on the dress that I am wearing below.  The pattern is SO unique and adorable.  Fit is TTS.

I love how well this gorgeous dress/print pairs with white.  It is such a fresh, fun, and crisp look!  And, I love how well the fan earrings pop against the print.  This beautiful dress will be in constant rotation this summer!

And, here are a few more of my favorite fun floral dresses and prints (affiliate links below):

Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific Thursday!

Gingham Gems Part Two!

Hi Everyone!

It is no secret that I LOVEEE gingham.  The pattern really appeals to my preppy side and I love the versatility of the print!  The pattern can be dressed up or down.  I also love that J. Crew offers the print in a variety of pieces including sweaters, totes, swimsuits, dresses, skirts, pants, blouses, and even pajamas!.  Gingham is a wardrobe staple for me!  So, today, I am sharing a preview of an upcoming OOTD and a gingham jumpsuit that is SOOOO fabulous!

Here are two images of an upcoming OOTD.  Photos by Samantha Moore Photography:

I love the idea of pairing gingham on gingham.  This look is without question one of my favorites.  There is something so fun, bold, and unexpected about doubling the prints with the trench and the sheath dress.  This doubling would also work with the J. Crew Cotton Jackie Cardigan Sweater in Gingham and the pencil skirt in this print. And, again, I love that a fun pop of color with accessories or shoes adds SO much to the look.

I have worn the gingham on gingham look with the peony ivory colorway, too!  I loved this look SOOO much that I knew that I wanted to do it again with the blue version of these pieces:

It is so fun to add a bold pop of color with a purse or with shoes.  The styling possibilities and combinations are endless!

Finally, here is an IRL picture of the J. Crew Spaghetti-Strap Jumpsuit in Gingham.  I am a huge fan of jumpsuits because they are SOOOO cute and they are incredibly flattering.  This beauty gets a major thumbs up.  Fit is TTS and the quality is superb.  Again, the styling possibilities are endless.  I love that I can layer this gorgeous jumpsuit with a sweater or a with a denim jacket.  And, I love the idea of adding a pop of color with the shoes here, too!

And, here are a few more gingham gems that I am LOVING so much (affiliate links below):
