Spring Staple: Button Down Top

Happy Friday Friends!!! 

I am taking it easy this morning and recovering from a fun blogger event last night. I had a blast at the Buddy Love social in Dallas with some of my local blogging friends. It was great to get out and meet some other local influencers in the area and get to do some fun shopping!

On to today’s post….

What is the one essential wardrobe piece in every girl’s closet? … The button down shirt.  I wanted to share one of my favorite tops that it definitely a closet staple of mine. It is the perfect top to go from day to night.

 Every season, designers reinvent this essential workplace staple and this season we get some pretty cool button downs that are NOT just made for the office. Oh and stripes are hot this spring so sometimes you can even get 2 for 1! The striped button-down is a classic closet staple and the perfect canvas for a variety of truly chic looks. From office appropriate with a pencil skirt to tied up with a maxi or worn with a bit of menswear flair (not to mention black tie, metallics, and head-to-toe white!), the possibilities are endless.

 

I wanted to stick with the casual look and pair it with my favorite cutoffs. These sandals are from TJ Maxx and super comfy. I recently found this bucket bag at Charming Charlie and it just sold out! (Sad face)…. I linked a similar one that goes great with any outfit!

 

Hope y’all have a fabulous weekend!

Paint Brush Maxi – BuddyLove

Happy Monday Friends!! 

I hope y’all had a fabulous weekend! We had some crazy weather in Dallas… Saturday morning we woke up to 50 degree weather from storms the night before. All of Ridge’s tee ball games were cancelled so we spent the day shopping #momwin 🙂

Yesterday was gorgeous so we had some bbq time with the neighborhood friends and kids. Pretty sure I didn’t clean an inch of the house all weekend… #oops!

Well I’ve been really excited to share today’s look with you, because I have a new brand to love- Buddy Love to be exact!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wanted to share a behind the scenes / candid shot of how our photoshoots usually go…. Photobombed by the toddler!!! #reallifeblogmom

Maxi Dress // Hat   , Similar ) // Sandals // Sunglasses // Necklace

Yes, this is what it looks like when your husband takes your pictures and your child wants to be in one…. or just participate in the bluebonnet field!! I cant complain because if thats what keeps him busy and makes him happy, I totally support it!

This maxi dress just totally gives me life! I wore this for Easter weekend and everyone just loved it. The colors, the print, the fit… 100%!!! It is literally the perfect dress for summer. I could probably live in it for any occasion! I paired it with my favorite sandals and super fun pom pom hat.

I will be attending a fun event this week that is hosted by Buddy Love in Dallas. I cant wait to share all the fun with all of you and show you some new and exciting pieces coming out for summer! Stay tuned!

Have an awesome week friends!

Currently Craving: Palm Print

 

Hola Amigos!!!

I am currently en route to Mexico as you are reading this… It is bright and early but momma is READY!!!

This post will be short and sweet but I wanted to share this amazing jumpsuit with y’all!!!

Palm print jumpsuit

While summer isn’t officially here just yet, it is finally feeling like it! I don’t know about you, but I’m so ready to for bright colors and to fully embrace the palm print trend! And I’m more than excited that I finally found the perfect one! This jumpsuit from Hazel and Olive Boutique is simply amazing!! Its super comfy and the cutout in the back is so unique. I love this for day to night transitions when I am running around during the day but I have an event or dinner at night. Unfortunately, this one is sold out but I LOVE this one and this one !! I am hoping it gets restocked very soon!! 🙂

For this casual vibe, I paired it with blue fringe sandals I snagged at Marshalls! I decided to have a little fun and add more fringe with my favorite fringe clutch! This is going to be making an appearance in Playa!!

Hope y’all have an awesome week!

Bell Sleeves & Stripes

Happy Monday Friends!!

Back to the crazy work week BUT, its the last full week before we will be soaking up the sun in Mexico! AND of course there has to be an important meeting at the office all week to keep the stress level up and running! There will be some important people in our office this week (corporate office execs) so I will running all over the place and chugging all the coffee!!

 

But on to today’s post….

 

Bell sleeves and stripes

 

I am beyond obsessed with these sleeves! Like everyone else right now because that’s how trends work, I guess? But seriously, apart from me almost dipping them in various amounts of food, I’ve decided I want everything to have flared sleeves from now on. This subtle blue and white stripe is so perfect for Spring too, I’ve already matched with about 10 different outfits that I want to wear – just need Zara to bring it out in different colors and I’ll be sorted for months.

I wanted to keep this outfit more casual and edgy so I paired it with my favorite black distressed jeans! Of course topping it off with a floppy hat and some retro sunnies keeps it cool and hip! I pretty much take this bucket bag everywhere since it goes with every outfit! And its the perfect size for all the essentials!! 🙂

 

Have an awesome week!

Cutest Embroidered Top

 

Happy Wednesday, gals!

I hope your week is going well do far!  I have a to-do list that’s inching close to a mile long and I am not sure I will ever get to it…. Work has me on overload! I am in the process of looking for someone to clean our house once a month because I just cant anymore! There is no time on the weekends and too much to clean for one person. I never wanted to have to hire someone because I wanted to be the “good wife” or be able to clean my own house but life really does get in the way sometimes. Any maybe I can learn some tips and tricks along the way 🙂

Today I wanted to share a super cute top I received from Romwe. I am really into embroidered tops this season. Not to mention ruffles and sheer sleeves! Put it all in one top and I am a happy girl!

Buuut really, is this lace mesh top not absolutely stunning?! Trust me, the quality is incredible (when you feel this thing you’ll realize how just how beautiful it is!). I am a big fan of fun, feminine lace tops like this one and I find they add such a sweet touch to any outfit and can be easily dressed up or down. The ruffle details make me want to dance all day! I paired the top with my go-to distressed jeans because let’s be honest…I generally opt for a more casual vibe. I also added a touch of fringe with these blue sandals from Marshalls (similar). It would be so cute paired with cutoff denim shorts for summer and these jeans would be equally adorable paired with a free flowing off-shoulder top. Voila, two items, so many outfit possibilities!

 

What trends are you loving this season?
