Happy Thursday day babes. Today I’m tackling a topic that, somehow, in 2017 in the South is still a “hot” one. You probably guessed it: white after Labor Day! I’m sure I’ve told you guys I’m not much on the fashion rules, especially when it comes to white. I really like white and feel like it truly has life year round. And tbh, as long as it’s still reaching high 80’s & 90’s, I’m not busting out the black or dark washes. So, today I’m sharing one of the ways I transition my white jeans to Fall with this stripe cardigan.
Hey Everyone !
Sorry for the hiatus! The weekend and these past few days have seriously flown by but I’m super pumped to get back to blogging and to sharing today’s awesome black and white look with you. The foundation for this one is my favorite pair of pants. Y’all- these pants are like butter! They are so soft, smooth and have the best fit. It’s really only something you can experience. I have worn them dressed up and down and love them both ways – so look for them on repeat. I have to say, I’m partial to this look because who doesn’t prefer the sneaks to the heels?! And this pair is a fun update to the same style everyone else has. The same flat silhouette comes with a hint of geo metallic makes them just riiiiiight. I threw it all together with a lace silk lingerie romper and the awesome floral bomber from my Cali trip post. It is one of my favorite outfits so far and adds a cool edge to the week.
I hope you all have a great day!

Good Morning Loves!!! It feels like it has been forever since my last post. I’m sorry for the spontaneous hiatus but with two big trips back to back, time and posts just got away from me. It was so great to get away and out of the office for a while but it feels so good to be home and back in a routine and of course blogging again. I can’t wait to share all the awesome pictures and adventures I had in Europe. I am just starting the process of gathering all the pictures that were snapped by 5 or so cameras that my family and I took on our trip. In the meantime, I’m finally sharing some outfits from my California Trip in May. The weather out West was much cooler than I anticipated and totally different than the hot & humid climate of the South. I packed several light jackets (like this one) and boy am I glad I did. Layers were my friend and although I packed several, once the sun went down it just didn’t seem like enough.
This combo was one of my favorites. The jacket and the tank are both really light weight and relatively thin so they didn’t take up much room in my suitcase, but still gave that cool, laid-back Cali vibe. I paired them with my favorite and I mean favorite Levi’s Boyfriend Jeans and some metallic espadrilles that were chic and comfy for all the walking and tourist-y things I did on my visit. I am usually a sandal snob in the summer. Comfort is my song and I sing it for 3 months straight, but this year I have found myself defaulting to the espadrilles. There are so many awesome options and they pair perfectly with jeans, dresses and shorts. Don’t get me wrong, I am still all about my sandals, but you just can’t go wrong with a few espadrilles sprinkled in.
This yellow woven straw clutch is probably my favorite part of this outfit. Whenever I go on trips to places I’ve never been, I always try to pick up something unique. I love vintage things and things that have a story: like a cool shop that it came from or purchasing it after a crazy adventurous day that I’ll never forget. Well, this sweet canary clutch was my gem from CA (don’t worry I’ve linked dupes and other great ones below). I got lucky in finding it pretty early in my trip. My mother-in-law and I were exploring Redondo Beach and came across this great vintage shop. We walked in and chatted with the owner and as I was browsing, I found this bag tucked behind a few other sparkly ones. I was kind of on the fence about it until the owner started telling me that the clutch was recently used in a fashion show for the Make A Wish Foundation. A local girl had put in her wish to be on Project Runway. Her mom, friend to the owner, wanted all the show items to come from her store. The young girl chose the clutch among other items to be used in the fashion show with Heidi Klum & all the PR crew. It was the sweetest story and after that I knew it was my treasure. I love the bright color and how it adds just the right pop of brightness to my summer wardrobe.

Is it just me or are these weeks flying by?! It seriously feels like I was just rambling on about my eternal love of the 5th of May and here we are again staring at the end of another week!
As I mentioned Tuesday I have some super fun things coming up and I’m so excited to share that I’m taking a few trips this summer. I love traveling to new places I’ve never been and this summer is full of them. First up is LA! California has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember and it is finally happening. Ever since the trip was confirmed and the plane tickets were booked, I have been thinking non stop about all the outfits I want to take. I teeter between casual cool and sleek and chic. Today I’m sharing one of my casual cool and super easy outfits. It’s super laid back, comfy and totally realistic for an afternoon around the beach. The details of this outfit are my favorite and really make the simple pieces stand out. Cue the scallops & tassels! Top it off with some slip on sandals, a hat to cover wind blown hair and some cool shades and done. Since I’m a total hot mess when it comes to packing, I’ll be sorting it all out via this blog. I’ll be sharing a few more vacay inspired looks, what I’m packing and my absolute travel must haves over the next few days, so come back and see me real soon ;).
Do you have any exciting travel plans or bucket list destinations?
