Simple & Classic:

One of my favorite ways to feel put together is with a simple button down with rolled up sleeves.  I love the fun pink color in this shirt, but blue is a classic go-to also! I paired the shirt with a pair of fun tassel earrings and espadrilles, but you could easily switch out the sandals for slip on sneakers and simple stud earrings to tone everything down.

Boucle skirt:

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this boucle skirt, but knew it would fit a hole in my work closet. Fringe is always popular year round and I loved this skirt fits a little shorter than traditional pencil skirts which is easier to wear down her in the summer months. It’s a littler dressier than business casual, so pairs nicely with a sweater (like shown here), but easily dressed down a with a graphic tee.

All The Colors

Ya’ll know I’m a huge fan of color – and will work as many colors, prints, and textures into one outfit as I can! This clutch made my job easy as it goes with literally everything – it has every color of the rainbow! But in a really fun, beachy, summer kind of way. It comes with a chain shoulder strap also. The same clutch comes in multiple color options which are linked below. Happy Monday!

Weekend to Office Style

I love tops that are versatile in my closet and can be worn at both work and home. I have plenty of plaid tops in my closet, but none are short sleeve – I thought I’d give this one a shot and it didn’t disappoint!  Tuck into a skirt for work, half tuck with leggings, or untuck with jeans on the weekend. This top also comes in a pretty summer white/navy gingham print, stripes, and plain white.

All The Ruffles

This pencil skirt has the cutest ruffle detail. Pastels in spring are always a hot color trend, and pairing a light/sky blue color with any light colored pastel top  like pink, yellow, or lavender makes getting dressed easy this time of year!  The only change here is I wish I had white pumps (on my wish list!).

Statement Earrings

Statement earrings are my favorite way to accessorize during the spring/summer months. It gets so hot down here in Florida during the summer that anything around the neck can feel constricting. These earrings didn’t photograph very well, but they have black/white stripes as the base with hot pink, yellow,  mint, and blue detail! I love all the colors because it makes them incredibly versatile and brightens up a simple tank like shown here. This is the type of outfit I would wear to dinner down here, especially sitting outside at a beach restaurant. C’mon summer! 🐬

Gingham & Bows:

Gingham in the spring and summer is one of my favorites! This cute little peplum top with the bow accents (you are looking at the back) was definitely a keeper! It comes in a red gingham print also and a seersucker print! I love the seersucker but trying to be good as I usually buy all the seersucker every spring and summer lol. I also finally settled on a cognac pair of espadrille platform sandals. I have a pair of blue wedge espadrilles from Target (many moons ago) and really wanted a more neutral pair. The hot ticket item right now are the Marc Fisher espadrille wedge sandals, or similar brands, but guys those are just way out of my comfort zone! A) I would not be able to walk lol and B) with how short I am I’d look extremely awkward. These Steve Madden espadrilles were much more my style! Comfy, easy to walk in, and neutral.

Spring Floral Blouse & White Mule Loafers:

Hi everyone! I took a little blogger vaca the last week or so and now ready to share so many fun new spring finds! Guys, these mules are the best! I really mean it. I purchased these awhile ago, but just recently have been able to finally wear them. I get compliments every time I wear these mules out and people are shocked to hear they are only $23! So they must wear really well. 🙂 They are comfortable and I’ve had zero issues walking in them. I shared them here with a floral blouse, but I’ve worn them with a sweatshirt, casual button down, dressier here with a blouse – they are very versatile! They also come in black if white isn’t your jam!

Stripes & Scallops

Stripes & Scallops:

I love a good button down for spring & summer months! If the nights are cool, but not cold, a button-down is a little nicer way to layer versus a cardigan or sweater. The blue & white combo is classic prep, and the tie-knot on this shirt is right on trend! I’m so happy scallops are back for yet another season and picked up these white shorts to add to my collection!

Flatlay ~ Summer Dreamin’

Down here in Florida it’s hard not to be attracted to summer pieces as soon as they’ve hit stores, even if it’s still in the 60s. I picked up this top and shorts a few weeks ago and I’ve gotten to wear the top a few times on warmer days, but the shorts will sit in my closet for awhile til summer is finally here. This midwestern girl got used to the hot weather down here fast, my skin ‘thinned’ as they say, and it’s now got to be mid-80s or warmer for me to wear shorts! I picked a warmer day a few weeks ago to wear a pair of jeans shorts (I think it was a hi of 82), and I was freezing all day lol! I know, I know – if you’re getting snow right now up north, just laugh at me – it didn’t take long for me to adjust to the weather here! I do love how these earrings tie in this whole outfit though – they also come in a navy blue version!
