Classic White Top

Nothing beats a good white top, right?  And they can be pretty hard to find.  So many are way too sheer–or they have a drop shoulder–or they have a rolled up sleeve with button tab mid way up your arm, none of which are my favorite.  But when I got this one in the mail I was pleasantly surprised.  The quality is a thumbs up and the back of the top is a knit material.  Makes it comfortable!  [wearing an xs]

I love that this top can be worn two ways–long or tied up in the front.  With these options it’s perfect for work & play!

My jeans are new.  High-waisted and stretchy, should I say more?!  If you order remember to size up though.  [wearing a 26×30]

Oh, && if you aren’t in the market for a white top–then get this one in one of the other color options.  There are tons to choose from (I want the black next, obviously)!  Petite sizes available too. 😉

You all may have seen me mention the new show we’ve been watching on IG a couple days ago–The Missing.  We just finished Season 1 last night and if like mysteries then it’s a must watch!

Studded Sandals for Spring


First and foremost–HAPPY Friday! We made it to the weekend you all!  Deep breath–or at least that’s what I’m telling myself. 😉

Ok, & on to the fun stuff–let’s talk shoes.  Specifically let’s talk studded shoes.  The silver studded accent trend is giving me LIFE.  It’s probably my favorite trend for Spring right now!  I am loving the silver contrast on the black options and also equally love it paired on top of the white and nude versions.  I think it is the perfect way to add a little edge to your look, yet it is subtle enough to pair with shorts and dresses!

I have a feeling I will be going back for more, but these slides were my first purchase and I cannot say enough good things about them.  I wanted a white pair that crossed over in an x and when I saw these at under $100 I was sold.  I love a good wedge and I love a good heel–don’t get me wrong–but in reality I end up wearing my flats more often.  Especially once shorts season is upon us.  So these seemed like a good purchase & I am impressed with the quality.  [these run tts]

I am also dying for this pair in the sand color.  That block heel looks perrrrrfect.  I added a few more of my favorites from Nordstrom down below for you all to browse too.

The search for the right denim short can be oh so hard, right?!  Well, I just got these in and I am so happy with them.  Such a cute lighter, distressed option that is high-waisted and not super, super short.  && bonus–they are only $55.   How cute is that back pocket?  Or lack there of, actually! Ha!  [run tts, I did not size up in these and I often do for denim shorts]

My bag is such an affordable option and I am obsessed with the silver chain!  It comes in three other colors too so snag one for Spring! [under $70]

&& this top is a yes, yes, yes in my book.  I love a good basic that I can reach for time and time again and I was in need of a good v-neck option rather than a strappy cami.  If you are in the same boat, then this one is for you!  It would be the perfect top for work to layer a cardigan or jacket over and comes in oodles of color options. Also available in petite.  [wearing an xs]

STUDDED CUTIES!  Just click on any to shop my favorites.

Hope you all have a good weekend!  Muah!

An outfit I am Loving

There’s nothing I love more than a white sweater and jeans.  There’s just something classic about the combo so I put together an outfit surround the sweater I just bought below.

CLICK ON ANY ITEM ABOVE TO SHOP!

SWEATER–I am really excited about this one.  I cant wait for it to arrive!

JEANS–I am craving a pair of straight leg, lighter wash jeans that aren’t distressed and these seem perfect. (fyi, I size up with this brand)

WEDGES–You need these in at least one of the colors.  They are SO good.

HAT–Loving the wide brim on this one.

NECKLACE–This layered look?  Gimmie!

SUNGLASSES–Yesssss, these are FINALLY available in gold!  I wear my black all the time so I know these will be great too.

BAG–So darn cute, right?  And affordable.  This one comes in other colors too but the white just made it into my cart!

I hope you all are having a great weekend!


What to wear to a wedding

Ok, I got this dress in last week and instantly fell in L-O-V-E!  Then it sold out but now it’s back in stock.  [happy dance] So, that being said, if you are interested then grab one now and do not wait!

On to the details–the quality of this dress is 100% and the price is still under $100.  Win, win.

It also comes in white so if you’re a bride to be this one would be perf for some of your pre wedding activities!

It runs true to size and the straps are adjustable.  Not in a eww that kinda of cheapens the dress kind of way though.. more so in the oh, that’s really helpful kind of way.  [wearing an xs]

The lace makes it classic but the style of it makes it unique.  It makes enough of a statement so you don’t have to fuss with finding a great necklace or earrings to compliment it.  I like it paired with a simple shoe too.

And most importantly, it’s actually a piece that I would consider an easy to wear dress.  It’s not one that you feel like you can’t ride in the car in on the way to your event or have a meal in.  #priorities

I think I am going to wear mine to a wedding we have coming up soon in Savannah!

Cheers to FRIYAY, you all! Muah!

Coffee Shop Lover

One of our favorite things to do when we travel is try out a new coffee shop.  I get so excited looking for a new spot before we head to a city.  I always search IG and the internet for options ahead of time so we have some sort of a game plan when we arrive.  Since it’s the first stop of the day we never want to have the search for a latte holding us up when we are ready to get out the door and we also never want to end up at a Starbucks–where’s the fun in that?

My order is always the same though wherever we go: Latte with Skim Milk and Sugar Free (if available) Vanilla.  Sometimes I get it iced and sometimes I get hot depending on my mood, not depending on the weather, haha.  && I will admit, I am drawn to any coffee shop that has marble tables.  Can’t lie!

On our recent weekend trip to Charleston we tried The Rise Coffee bar (seen above) and Black Tap Coffee.  Both were good but our favorite was definitely Rise.  It’s connected to the Restoration Hotel and after seeing the lobby [and the bathroom, haha]–I can tell you that I for sure want to stay there soon.  The vibe is oooh SO good!

I ordered this grey top because I thought it would be great for casual weekend wear and also perfect to throw on over my workout tank with leggings when I’m headed to or from spin class.  Is the back not too cute?!  Also it’s SOO soft.  [wearing a small]

I rounded up a list of our favorite coffee shop in a few cities that we’ve been to recently for you all below (including the city we live in too, of course).  If you have a favorite in a city that isn’t listed will you please do me a favor and send the recommendation my way?  I love to keep an ongoing list!
