stripe dress.

Levity Heels // Forever 21 Dress // Anthropologie Jacket // J.Crew Necklace // Daniel Wellington Watch // Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag // Ray Ban Sunglasses

I had my heart set on a stripe midi dress. Don't ask me why, but it just seemed like it would be the perfect summer staple. Turns out, it transitions well as cooler months are upon us. I picked up this jacket at Anthropologie and I have a feeling I'm going to be wearing it all the time. It's the perfect weight, and SO soft! It feels almost like a slightly heavier chambray shirt, great for layering.

ASOS Jumpsuit (similar)// Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag // Urban Outfitters Sunglasses // J.Crew Earrings

I bought this jumpsuit with big plans to wear it on our honeymoon. Turns out, Italy was hot as hell and I could only wear short and light dresses (I know, poor me). Either way, I'm still excited to pull this goodie out of the closet to run around on a nice summer evening. For me, this is the perfect combo of comfort while still being sexy. It's straight up like wearing pajamas on the bottom, but still shows a little shoulder up top. My only complaint is the weird fabric gathering around my booty, but that could be a personal problem. Also, this bag. When I was in college, I made a pact with my best girl friends that when each of us got married... instead of buying each other a blender, we would buy each other a designer item. Something I thought to be funny and not actually happening, turned out to have been a GREAT idea for a silly college pact. Meet my friend, Louis. He will be joining me on lots of new adventures. Thank you to my amazing best friends and loves.

panama hat & polka dots.

Yup, I did it. I bought Firkenstocks (fake Birkenstocks)... from Target. Can you blame me? They are beyond comfortable and I love the cute studs on the side to add a bit of sparkle. I also have been pretty into the comfort meets cute that Madewell offers. This swinging tank I found on sale there is the perfect staple for my summer wardrobe (beware big gusts of wind, however). I was also pretty happy to find this hat at Target before I made the jump into the J.Crew panama hat. I felt like this was a good substitute that definitely does the trick. I threw this outfit on for a nice walk around the Madison farmer's market and brunch with friends. Did anyone have any awesome summer plans this weekend?

milkmaid braids.

VICTORY. My hair is finally long enough again to start doing more braided styles without pieces falling out everywhere. Oh... maybe you're not excited. I do this thing where every time I start to grow my hair long, I panic and cut it off. So far, so good folks. I'm also pretty excited that I am finally wearing sandals, especially these! Nordstrom just priced matched these Steve Madden sliders so they are a pretty solid deal for something I'm sure to be found wearing all summer. I love the touch of gold, but easy every day style. In addition to these shoes, there are a lot of sales going on right now with almost my entire outfit. This is my second pair of these BDG jeans from Urban Outfitters, I can't get enough of the high waist and fitted look. Madewell has a sale on their sale right now, so go pick yourself up some delicate gems. You can pick up my peplum at Gap for 40% off right now! And finally, I've got to mention my backpack. Did I buy it because it's trendy right now, or because I'm getting older and find it extremely convenient and comfortable? Not sure.

easin' into spring.

Forever 21 Hat & Sweatshirt// Marc Jacobs Purse // Target Espadrilles

Well, I know I'm not the only one talking about the weather. It's been tough to get excited about clothes lately when you can't wear any new spring things without freezing. A great way to start is incorporate small things that will make you feel like you are switching it up a bit while still keeping warm. I love this pale pink sweatshirt I picked up from Forever 21 for a nice light layer. These espadrilles from Target are quick favorites for me. I wouldn't say the quality is the best, but for $20 they are a good fix.
