All Buttoned Up 💕

Loving this modernized take on a denim skirt by Elizabeth and James!

I swore about 8 years ago when I was doing a closet cleanout that I would be saying sayonara to denim skirts for good. Fast forward, and I am happily eating my words! Whereas the skirt I am not so fondly remembering was ultra short, distressed and something out of the Mean Girls era, this pink version by Elizabeth and James feels nothing but modern and sophisticated, even when dressed down with a crop top and denim jacket. The buttons down the front add an eye-catching detail that is also elongating–something I adore given my short stature, and the belt helps cinch it in at just the right place. After discovering this piece I will be eating my words much more this summer and am looking forward to giving more denim skirts a try in the near future–stay tuned!

Feeling extra fresh and fruity in this Kate Spade jumpsuit! 🍍

Lately, I’ve been leaning hard into fruit or food patterned items. They feel extra summery and it doesn’t hurt that the little ones I take care of love them too. Children are inherently honest, so when they compliment your outfit you know it’s extra special! I love the hint of yellow and brown throughout this jumpsuit making it both something wearable for daytime as well as a piece I’m able to dress up by swapping my leather coat and sandals for heels and a blazer. It makes a statement without being in your face and was perfect for a Sunday afternoon spent lounging around my cousins for a backyard BBQ. You don’t get much more summery than that!
