Shorts Suit (For A Fraction Of The Price!)

Exact shorts here and also love these 

I have been on the hunt for a "shorts suit" (if that's even a real term) over the last few weeks. What I mean is a structured blazer/matching shorts set. I love how chic, sophisticated, yet sexy they are when worn with an ankle strap heel. I saw this striped set from Tibi (blazer here and shorts here), and I instantly fell in love! However, I just could not justify spending that much. Well, while in NYC I picked up these black shorts from Zara, and I've been dying to style them for the blog ever since! Fast forward to this past Saturday while I was browsing Target and I spotted this striped blazer (I mean how similar is it to the Tibi one?!?!), and I literally could not get over it. There were three left on the rack and luckily one was in my size, so I grabbed it, tried it on right there on the spot and put it in my cart. I got home and tried it on with my new black shorts, and whaddaya know - the shorts suit I'd been searching for all along!! I was just so proud of myself for putting together my own set for a fraction of the price. Tibi, I will always love you, but sometimes this girl has got to stay on budget! XO

Easter Dresses

Dress | Heels | Clutch | Similar earrings here

Happy Friday!! I apologize for being so MIA on the blog this week... it has been a whirlwind of a week. I had the best time in NYC last weekend with my friends! It was seriously so good for the soul and so worth it regardless of the crazy work week I knew I would have ahead of me. I got back to DC Monday afternoon, headed straight into the office, and I've had work events after work every night this week. So, needless to say, it's been one heck of a week and my blog has suffered a little neglect. However, with Easter Sunday a little over a week away, I wanted to share some dresses that I've come across that I think would be perfect if you're on the hunt! You can click on any image directly to shop the item! Personally, I'm in love with Rachel Parcell's Spring line, and I'm SO close to pulling the trigger on this white dress! I literally have been looking at it everyday this week! I love how feminine and classy it is! I hope you have a great weekend ahead! I'm looking forward to getting some rest and getting my life in order after this crazy week!! XO

Spring Casual: Under $100

Top | Handbag | Wedges
Bobbi Brown Art Stick (my fave shade is "Dusty Pink")
Sunglasses | Hoop Earrings | Ripped Denim

Happy Friday!! Today, I wanted to share a few items that I have and love and also a few items that I've got on my wish list for Spring! I love finding any casual white top that I can throw on during the warmer months with ripped denim or denim shorts. This white top is perfect, and I adore the ruffle detailing on it! Secondly, I have and LOVE these round sunnies. They just came back in stock, and I have already ordered another pair of them in a different color! These Levi's are my current faves and such a staple for your closet! I have the lighter wash, but I love the contrast of the white top with the darker wash! Finally, these wedges and this crossbody bag are the perfect pairing! I'm linking a few other white tops I'm loving along with some other denim options in the widget below!

I am headed to NYC today to see my best friend, Holly, and celebrate her birthday this weekend with two of my other besties! I am so excited for a weekend in the city and to visit Holly's new place! She just moved to NYC, and I am just thrilled for her. Be sure to check out her adorable blog and travel site here! I hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!! XO

Floral Cold Shoulder Top & My Favorite Pumps

Similar earrings here

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I am excited for the start of a new week with this time change! It's my favorite time of year, as there's no greater feeling than leaving the office and having a few hours of daylight left! Now, we just need for the temperatures to rise and I'll be one happy camper! How adorable is this cold shoulder top? It would pair perfectly with white denim too, but I love pairing tops with this particular pair of black, ripped denim. They are so comfortable, slimming, and ripped in just the right spots! Lastly, these white pumps are my new favorite purchase. They are SO comfortable for a high heel and the quality is so good! I've had my eyes on this pair from Stuart Weitzman for awhile, but I just couldn't make myself pull the trigger on them with that price tag. So, needless to say I was SUPER pumped when I found these (for a fraction of the price!!), and I seriously can't get over how chic and comfy they are on! I can't recommend them enough and they come in quite a few colors! Wishing you a great start to your week! XO

Little Black Romper + My Favorite Statement Earrings

Similar earrings here and more about this exact pair below!

Happy Thursday, y'all! How fab is this little black romper? I am a huge fan of rompers, always have been, and always will be! Although, there's no denying that they can be difficult to shop for when it comes to finding the perfect fit with my tall frame! But, when I find one that is long enough in the torso - it's like, BAM! I struck gold! I came across this little black romper while browsing Nordstrom's website, and I knew I had to have it. It is such a great quality piece for the price, and it is just as essential as the need for a little black dress in your wardrobe. There are so many ways you can style and accessorize it, which makes it so versatile. I chose to pair my favorite gold statement earrings with it, which I have gotten a few questions about from y'all! These exact earrings are by Marcia Moran, and I purchased them from one of my favorite boutiques back home in Mississippi called Material Girls. You can call any of their stores to purchase these earrings, and I am linking their website here with all of their contact information. Unfortunately, these exact earrings aren't sold on their website, but they should have them in store! Also, I found them on Marcia Moran's website, and you can order them directly here! I hope that helps! These earrings are awesome and truly worth the price if you love big, statement earrings! I wear them with everything!! Lastly, below I've linked a super similar pair from Kendra Scott that I'm obsessed with right now! The new arrivals from Kendra Scott's Spring and Summer lines are all just incredible! XO

Ruffled Wrap Dress

Dress | Heels | Bag | Sunglasses
Super similar earrings here!

Taking photos this weekend was no easy task with the wild winds, but we somehow managed and I think the winds helped capture the flowy, wrap style of this dress! I adore the black and white pattern on this dress accented with layered ruffles, a tie waist, and a tulip style skirt. If you are headed somewhere warm soon, this little number would be perfect! It's true to size (I'm wearing a medium), and a major plus is that it doesn't wrinkle easily at all! I would pair it with this fun, straw hat if I were styling it for warmer weather. A girl can dream, right?! XO

Horizontal Stripes + The Shopbop Sale!!

Top | Denim | Shoes are sold out but love these! | Belt | Bag | Hat

I have always been afraid of wearing horizontal stripes, but when I spotted this top I thought it would make a great staple for my wardrobe. Pair it underneath a trench coat, tucked into denim shorts, with your favorite statement block heels and you've got an easy put together look! It is a little more fitted (I should have actually sized down), so it tucks in easily and is way more flattering than wearing a loose garment with horizontal stripes. What are your thoughts on the cropped denim trend? I'm loving it, but I'm also tall so it makes my life a little easier when jean shopping! Pairing cropped denim with a statement shoe makes such a difference though! I adore this pair!

Lastly, the amazing Shopbop sale is going on right now, so I am sharing some of my picks below! It's the perfect time to stock up on staples or splurge on any Spring and Summer statement pieces currently on your wishlist! Wishing you a great weekend ahead! DC is expected to get winds as strong as 60-70mph today and tomorrow, so we will be staying inside! Sunday is supposed to be nice though... goodness, I've never been so ready for Spring and Summer!
