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.
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!

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)!
Though the weather is not nearly as pleasant today as it was last week (looking at you 15 minutes of torrential downpour–my shoes are still drying out), I was determined to still embrace the first day of spring in my usual fashion–on theme! We all know I love any excuse to celebrate, so I whipped out my blingiest necklace, which felt perfect in all its florally goodness, and built my outfit from there.
Happy first day of Spring everyone!

I’ve been trying to find a way to wear this dress since I rented it, but unfortunately the weather wasn’t cooperating. After almost giving up, I was scrolling through Instagram and came across one of my favorite bloggers posts, Beth Jones of B. Jones Style, and it reminded me that I’ve seen her wear countless dresses over pants or jeans. It’s something I’d never quite felt confident enough to do, but by unbuttoning the dress halfway it allowed me to dip my toes into the style, without fully committing. I love that I was able to find a way to wear this dress before returning it, and super grateful for the reminder to think outside the box. I’ll definitely be playing around with this more in the future.
If this Ali & Jay dress doesn’t scream spring then I don’t know what does!
As soon as I saw this beautiful floral dress on Rent The Runway I knew I had to wear it for Mother’s Day brunch! It was fluttery and ethereal without being too over the top and hid my food baby beautifully! To tone down the super feminine nature of the outfit I paired it with the Cupcakes and Cashmere leather jacket that I’ve been living in the last few weeks (I finally parted ways with it this morning since I found myself falling into old habits and not mixing things up more) along with some booties that have been buried on the top shelf of my closet for some time. It turned out to be the perfect outfit for the perfect day–I spent the day celebrating the moms in my life with brunch, coffee and then spent a lovely afternoon catching up with girlfriends over wine and cheese. It doesn’t get much better than that! I hope all you Mom’s out there had a spectacular day and weekend as well!
Every spring I embrace lighter colors. For me though, lighter colors mainly consist of ivories and pale pinks. This year I was exceptionally excited when I started seeing lavender popping up more and more on the runways and blogs. It’s feminine without being overly saccharinely sweet like shades of pale pink (or rather millennial pink) can sometimes be. From tops to dresses to pants it’s a shade that looks good on everyone! I plan on whipping out the few pieces I own in this hue, but below are also a few of the items I’m eyeballing currently as well.
