Hey there, friends! How was your weekend?  Mine was pretty busy over here.  I spent a large part of Saturday grabbing the last few items from my apartment which ended up being a full carload and the final cleaning of the place.  I really loved that apartment and so many things about it.  It’s definitely a little bittersweet to say goodbye.  On Sunday, my mom stopped by the new house for her first in-person tour.  It was my first time seeing her in person in over 4 months!  I was so excited to see her and show her around the new place.  So I guess my weekend was filled with saying goodbye to the old and hello to all the fun new.

Continuing with my white top love, this white lace embroidered top is another buy now and wear for multiple seasons later.  I’ve had my eye on this top for a year or so now.  I’ve seen it in a few different colors but I love the chicness of the white color.  I think the white version can be easily dressed up or down.  I opted to do a mix of the two and pair it with my skinny jeans and strappy kitten heels.

A few other outfit ideas for this top –

  1. Pair it with white denim and nude colored heels, espadrille wedges, or a bright colored heel
  2. Toss on some black skinny jeans and brown tall boots in the fall
  3. Add in some distressed jeans and brown suede booties
  4. For an office friendly look, pair this top with gray or colorful skinny work pant.  Think navy, green, or burgundy with a pair of heels or nice flats.

Which outfit idea would be your favorite way to wear this white lace top?

We are definitely in the thick of the summer heat with temps hitting over 100 this week!  Simple summer outfit combos like this orange tank top and distressed jean shorts look will be on major repeat for the rest of summer.  I wear these shorts so much and had hoped to buy one or two more pairs of distressed shorts, but I haven’t yet made it to a store.

I might brave trying to buy some online (I’ve heard good things about this shorts line), but I think shorts really need to be tried on in store.  When I do buy jean shorts, I often will size up one for a looser and comfier fit.  With cotton shorts I often buy my true to fit size for a more structured look.  It’s really all about personal preference, and I like my denim shorts to not be as fitted as say my jean pants.

Lightweight tank tops are a must for me this summer as we continue spending so much time at home or running only quick errands.  The smock neck detail on this one helped it feel a little more special than your average top.  I’m also a big fan of earth tone colors like this rust orange for summer.  For all my UT gals, this will be great to wear to football games this fall or next spring whenever they happen.

Our patio furniture was delivered yesterday.  We braved the evening heat to enjoy a glass of wine outdoors.  With our grill almost ready to go, the outdoor space is really starting to come together!  Next on the list for this space is a ceiling fan to add a cool breeze to the space on hot days.

This weekend, I’ll be moving the final few things from my apartment and saying goodbye to the space I called home for over two years.  I plan to follow that up with a little pool time at our community pool and more unpacking at the new house.  What’s on deck for you this weekend?

Hello Texas Heat! We are slowly inching closer and closer to the 100 degree mark here which means short season is officially here.  When I did my survey a few months ago, shorts outfits were a request.  This summer I’m planning to share a few more outfits with shorts.  Shorts are one thing I like to buy in-store vs. online.  Sometimes I like to size up, and I also like to be sure they do not ride up between the legs when I walk.  While I have not yet ventured into a store yet, I do have a few pairs on my try on list that have good reviews.  If you have a pair of shorts you love, drop it in the comments!

These white shorts are still one of my favorite pairs.  I wish Express would bring them back so I can buy in more colors!  The fit is both structured and stretchy making them look chic and feel comfy.  I also have this pair from Old Navy.  That pair is more full cotton so not as stretchy and wrinkles a little easier than the Express pair.

Flowy colorful blouses are the perfect pairing with white shorts.  I love how the white in the print stand out more when paired with a white bottom.  The longer sleeve and flowy fit helps give a dressier look to the shorts outfit.  It’s also a good option if you want to create a more modest shorts outfit.  This yellow top has a banded bottom which gives the look of being tucked in.  I love this style top on a hot day.  You don’t have to worry about tucking in a shirt while possibly also sweating.  The loose and flowy fit also give lots of breathability and air flow.

What I Wore in May

Well, I changed out of my leggings a little more last month.  It felt good to get dressed, do my makeup and feel a little bit normal while still working from home.  I slowly made a few more small ventures out as Texas started opening up throughout May.  I made my way to Ulta and Starbucks among a few other stores.  I decided to be a little creative with a couple of my outfits and flex some of my fashion muscles for my errand running.
