Can you believe it’s almost July?!?!  We are officially heading into the heart of summer! Hello pool time, although I’m not looking forward to crazy heat that I’m sure is on it’s way.  Have you made your 4th of July plans yet?  We have a few options including heading outside the city limits to pop fireworks at a friend’s house.  It’s always a pretty fun time.

Almost as important as deciding what to do is deciding what to wear for 4th of July.  I love nods to patriotic colors, and this navy dress would be so perfect if you want something a little nicer than shorts.  It would be perfect for an outdoor daytime event because it’s super lightweight and the material breaths really well. Plus, I mean the tiered ruffle skirt just says ready for fun.

You could add a little red with your earrings or even these adorable star ones, but I just fell in love with the way these turquoise stone earrings looked next to the navy.  They perfectly compliment each other, but the earrings still pop.  I added in a few neutrals with my shoes and bag to keep my earth tone vibe going on.

I’m finally showing you guys how these wedges look with a dress!! I feel like I’ve said it a few times, so I’m excited to finally show you!  The deep cut of the front really helps from cutting me off and making me look short and stumpy.  I find this can happen with some wedges depending on the design at the top.

So what are your plans for the 4th??  Thanks for stopping by this week and have a fabulous weekend!

Hello Hello! How was your weekend?!? We had so much fun down in Galveston. It was perfect beach weather – warm with a good breeze.  We also ate at some yummy new to us restaurants too.  Overall a very successful little beach getaway.  We are already trying to decide when to go back.

I feel like this outfit is kind of basic, but I just love it.  Sometimes putting a few simple pieces together can really turn into a gorgeous, chic, sophisticated  outfit.  It’s no secret long cardigans are one of my favorite add ons.  With the weather warmer, I start reaching for sleeveless and short sleeve versions.  This gray short sleeve cardigan is so cozy.  It’s one of those pieces I will wear to work a ton with dresses, pencil skirts, and my skinny work pants, but I love how it easily dresses up something as simple as a plain white tee.

Speaking of plain white tshirts, LOVE this one!  It’s on the pricey end at $32 for a basic tee, but I think it’s worth it.  For starters, it’s super soft and not super clingy. Best of all, it’s not see-through!!!!!!!!!  I feel like this is the hardest thing to find with white tees these days.  I wear this with a nude bra underneath, and it’s perfect!  I ordered a small, but I will probably consider a XS if I order another color.  I like the slightly loose fit of the small with the white, but I could also go for a more fitted look too.

I hope ya’lls week is off to a wonderful start! It’s Style File Link Up day, so be sure to scroll on down and join in on the fun!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hello from Galveston! We drove up last night and plan to hit up a couple hot spots this morning before all the weekenders arrive, and then relax on the beach all afternoon.  I am so ready for this mini-vacation.

I wanted to share a few of my spring and summer wardrobe staples today.  Wardrobe staples are the base of any great closet.  They are the pieces that can be mixed and matched into a multitude of outfits all season long.  A great pair of non-distressed jeans is key to any wardrobe really year round.  For spring and summer, I like the mid-blue shade for a lighter look.  I also keep a few pairs unaltered so I can create a cute cuffed look.  The cuff looks cute with wedges, sneakers, and flat sandals.

A great neutral wedge sandal is must have shoe for spring and summer.  I try to find one in a shade that will mix with both cool and warm color tones.  Versatility from the sandal design is also important.  I want a wedge that will work with dresses, jeans, and shorts.  I find a design that has either a slight or deep dip in the front best for this range.  The ones featured are a good example of a deep dip with the addition of laces around the ankle.

A basic white blouse is another wardrobe staple that is really great year round.  You can layer with it in the fall, and this season use it as a backdrop for all the fun and colorful statement jewelry available.  I also like white because it keeps you a bit cooler.

My brown and black tote bag is easily one of my best bag purchases.  A good sized tote bag is great for days when you need to carry all the things.  A reversible one is also perfect because you can pick the color that works best with your outfit for the day.

Summer time also often means vacation time and having these wardrobe staples can also help you pack lighter.  You can carry the same bag, re-wear the jeans and wedges, and even remix a white blouse into casual and dressy looks.  What are some of your spring and summer wardrobe staples?

Ya’ll have a good weekend. I am going to go get my sun on!

Hello Hello!  June is turning out to be quite the busy month for me.  I just finished a jam packed weekend, and now I’m gearing up for a little weekend getaway down to Galveston Island.  Plans include seafood and lots of relaxation!

This outfit is perfect timing because it’s pretty close to one of the outfit ideas I like to wear at the beach.  Beach vacations are all about comfort and effortless style, plus I like to throw in a little bit of chicness to the look too.  Most island restaurants have a pretty casual dress code even for dinner.  I still like to look a little polished with what I wear to dinner.  White jeans are a great item to pack for a slightly more dressy and polished evening outfit.  You can add in a few cute accessories like my shell necklace and create an easy and effortless dressy casual outfit.

Weather and time pending, I hope to shoot a few more vacation outfit ideas while I’m down in Galveston, so stay tuned for those in the coming weeks. You can also check in on Instagram for a few snaps over the weekend.  I hope ya’ll are having a fabulous week and don’t forget to scroll on down for more amazing outfit inspiration in today’s Style File Link Up!
