Good morning and welcome to the new week! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. We had a great one celebrating my future sister-in-laws birthday this past Saturday. It was a lot of fun! We went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner and then did some shopping together. My brother was a good sport during the shopping too, haha. 

Oh how I love a good nautical look! I basically have two fashion styles that I stick pretty close to. One being romantic whimsy and the other nautical. This look started with the pearl beaded flounce skirt and was built around that. The detailing is unequivocally feminine and very lady like. The pearls are so darling! I’m wearing a size small for reference. This seersucker blazer from Banana Republic has been a staple item in my closet for years. I pull it out every spring and summer and never tire of it. It’s a classic piece stands the test of time. This pink and blush versions are a fun twist on the traditional blue. I found a similar one to mine here that is sure to be a go-to for anything from dressing up a simple white tee and jeans to creating your own nautical chic ensemble!

Good morning and happy Thursday, friends! It's hard to believe Thanksgiving is only one week away. Where did the month of November go?! On that thought, where did 2017 go?? It always amazes me at how quickly time goes by anymore.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, I had this outfit in mind when thinking of what to wear for the holiday. I want to wear something very fall festive and fell in love with this color combination. These over the knee boots are amazing and actually stay up on my legs! I have very thin legs and have trouble with over the knee styles staying up, slouchy suede boots specifically, which are very popular right now. These are suede, but not slouchy, and comfortably stay up without me having to constantly pull them up. Can we talk about how gorgeous the color is too?!? It's a deep cranberry wine that is a total knockout for fall and winter.

Good morning, friends! I hope everyone had a fabulous first day of summer yesterday. We had some amazingly beautiful weather and spent almost the whole day outside, especially with it being the longest day of the year. The sunset was breathtaking! I'm hoping that's a good sign for the summer months ahead, haha.

One of my favorite looks in the summer, and one of the easiest, is to throw on a dress with some flats and head out the door. I've been a bit enamored with pink and green color combos lately too. I used this dress as a swimsuit coverup while we were in Cape Cod and have thrown it on multiple times since then for running around doing errands. For me, this dress fit true to size. I did see where some people thought it was short, but on my 5'2 frame, it fit just fine. I was very comfortable with the length. This dress also comes in a navy and cobalt print too!

Happy Wednesday, all! Snow pictures have always been my favorite. The cold that typically accompanies them is definitely not, but you cannot deny the beauty of a snowy backdrop. This was Ava's first big snow day too. l was so excited to see how she would like the snow and after a few tentative steps, she was off! Her snow suit outfit reminds me of a pink marshmallow, haha. It was the cutest thing watching her navigate her way through the white fluff. 

Now, onto my look for our snow day fun. The snow had just stopped falling by the time we got outside and the temperature was starting to rise. By the time we headed back indoors, some of the snow was starting to melt already. I layered up with a button down, striped top, and a topcoat. I cannot get over these tulle cuffs on the striped top! Really, the most darling detail. I adore stripes, my nautical love coming through, and I adore tulle, my love for all things feminine and romantic coming through. Honestly, the tulle cuffs sold me on the top. It's great for pairing with a skirt for a night out, wearing in the summer with some white shorts, or layered up in the winter like I have here. It's incredibly versatile.

The beanie I'm wearing is from Love Your Melon. Their mission when they began back in 2012 was to put a hat on every child battling cancer in America. Their goal was met with 45,000 hats being donated, one for each child, and a new goal was set to raise and donate one million dollars for pediatric cancer research and to prove immediate help to children and their families. Fifty percent of profits from Love Your Melon is given to Love Your Melon's non-profit partners. To date over 80,000 hats and 1.5 million dollars has been donated.

I've always been more of a dress/skirt kind of girl, but when I do wear pants, they're typically jeans. Usually the fit of most pants does not flatter me. Be that as it may, I'm really digging these pink lace pants. First off, they're pink, obviously haha. The lace feels uber feminine and ladylike, two styles that particularly speak to me. A side note on them, they're a size 0, but I still felt they were slightly big. I washed and dried them once and they shrunk a little bit and then fit me perfectly. That worked out for me, but they will shrink ever so slightly. To top off the look I went with this layered bell sleeve sweater. I honestly love the bell sleeve trend when its done right, as in not overwhelming and ridiculous looking. Its a great statement piece that acts like a fun little twist. The sweater is a one size only and feels oh so comfy. Plus, coming in at under $25, you don't have to break the bank!
