Heatwave White

A little white dress is the perfect way to embrace warmer temps and summer just around the corner.

Spring is in full spring and it’s starting to feel more and more like summers right around the corner—and nothing screams summer to me more than a little white dress. I piled on accessories that I’d want to wear to the beach or to brunch, and though I wear this dress all the time, it felt fresh and new. I look forward to wearing it all summer long, both as a coverup at the beach and even out to dinner and drinks swapping my flip flops for some strappy heels and a mini structured bag. 

Beige on Beige

There’s no denying that beige on beige is one of the hottest trends of the season, but also one of the few I was hesitant to try.

It’s been popping up for months on feeds and in fashion articles, but it wasn’t until i was scrolling my own actual closet that I even consider trying it out for myself. When I think monochromatic dressing my first instinct is to reach for blacks, greys, whites or even dramatic colors. 

Beige is a color that for whatever reason seems to get a bland rap. However, as the runways have proven (at least to me) when paired all together it creates a classic look that still has an easy casual vibe that says, “I just threw this one before running out the door”. 

Will this be my go to color from now on? No, but I will definitely be reaching for it way more often now!

Let’s Talk Pearls

Let’s discuss!



Pearls have been popping up for quite a while both on the runways and social media feeds, but in recent months they seem to have had an increased surge.

Now I for one am fully on board with this trend, especially in the form of hair clips. It adds an unexpected elegance and playfulness to even the simplest of outfits, and I plan on adding more to my collection.

In my opinion pearls are here to stay and I’m all for it! Below are some of the other pieces I’ve got my eye on currently:

A simple, yet chic statement bag

These slides that would pair just as well with cutoffs, as with a floaty summer dress

This sweater with just the right amount of embellishment

Statement jeans I never knew I needed before now

I would love to hear–do you love this trend too?

Taking a Moment

Mixing it up this spring with a shorter cut and different color, and doing a different kind of spring cleaning.

After many many weeks of constantly overbooked weekends, I decided it was high time to tackle the monstrosity that my roots had become. It wasn’t until I was leaving the salon feeling like a million bucks, that I realized how much I’d needed to just set aside some me time. It’s so easy to say yes to plans when they are all something I want to do, but I’m slowly discovering just how important it is to slow down and schedule in days where there’s either pampering to be done, or absolutely nothing at all. Consider this my own unique way of spring cleaning—cleaning up my schedule. 

Happy Monday everyone! 

Feelin’ the Green

I love how throwing on a loose sweater over a dress can completely change the look and feel of an outfit.

Recently I’ve really leaned in to getting more use and wear out of even the simplest of items. This dress when paired with my camel coat and the same boots was perfectly elegant and chic for a date night, but wanted to make it more daytime appropriate. It’s a bit on the lower cut side, and all that white is asking for disaster when you combine it clutziness with toddler hands, so I figured why not try and cover some of it up? It completely changed the look exactly how I wanted it to and I’m happy to report that the dress is still (miraculously) white! 

Distressed, but Not Stressed

A flirty dress and distressed denim jacket are my perfect spring combo I’ve decided.

I knew as soon as I saw this dress it would be absolutely perfect for a day spent at Malibu Wines celebrating one of my favorite people. The light mesh material, beautiful floral print, and swingy tiers of ruffles made me feel like a fairy princess. We donned flower crowns, drank plenty of rosè and ate out weight in cheese. It was a perfect spring day celebrating my best friend and I look forward to many more days filled in the sun with friends (and wine)! 

Floral Fever

Definitely leaning towards making Friday florals a regular occurrence.

Not sure if it’s just the much needed break from the rain and cold, but I have fully embraced spring in full force! I’ve been reading oodles of articles on spring trends, some of which I tried out today—not sure how I feel about the tucked pants, can’t tell if it’s too parachute pantlike for my taste, but I’m enjoying getting out of my comfort zone more and more. 
Florals on the other hand are one spring trend I’ve never had a problem embracing. I’ve had these pants for years, and they still never get old! I love the combo of muted colors, and light pastels mixed in. They’re the perfect piece to transition into more outlandish floral patterns, which I fully intend to do before the season is through!
