Stripes for Spring and Summer


I know I sound like a broken record when I say weekends are for comfort, but weekends are for comfort! I really do love to dress down as much as I can-it just fits my lifestyle. As much as I love heels, it's can be hard to keep up with my girls wearing them! 

I wore this Saturday night for a quick family outing-we had friends over later that evening, so it was perfect to just kind of hang out and lounge around in! These jeans have really broken in and are really comfortable!

I plan on wearing these jeans well into the summer. I think they look great with sneakers and sandal alike!

Spring/Summer Shoe Haul

I wouldn't necessarily classify myself as a "shoe" person. I am sure my husband would disagree, but more often than not you'll find me spending money on clothes and not really shoes.

Lately, though I haven't been able to get enough of shoes! I do tend to get new shoes here and there when a new season rolls around. This season though, I find myself really diving into giving my shoe wardrobe a complete overhaul.



1. Metallic Copper Birkenstock: I have a white and brown pair (Target versions) from two years ago that I still wear. At the time, I didn't want to invest in actual Birkenstocks because I wasn't sure if they were going to stick around or not. Fast forward two years and they are still here! (I know, they never really went anywhere). I had my eye on these copper ones for a few months, and totally hesitated on getting them. Finally I decided to just go for it and get them. This is what I do when I am considering a big purchase--I think and think and think about it until I start to annoy myself! They only had narrow available, but one of my readers said that their narrows actually work for regular width feet. I am supposed to get them in the mail later this week, so I will keep you posted!

2. White Converse: To me, these are a classic, closet staple. I have Converse also in black (high and low tops) and red. I have had white for a few years now, and in all honesty should have gotten a new pair last year! I figured since mine were starting to permanently look grey, I needed a new pair! For me, these run pretty true to size. I am my normal size across the board in Converse.

3. Steve Madden Lancer Sneaker: This is the thing about blogging (or just following blogs in general)-you are always wanting. I saw these on someone's instastories-I can't remember who-but I instantly fell in love. I have a fondness for sneakers-they have sort of become a staple of mine lately. They have totally taken over the heels in my closet! Anyway, I loved the color of these and how different they were from other slip ons that I have. They are really comfortable and I would say true to size. Not to mention, they go with so much!

4. Steve Madden Faux Pearl Sandals: These were another pair of shoes that I have had my eye on. Steve Madden can be tricky for me sometimes as far as sizing goes. I ordered my normal size but ended up returning and going up a half size. They are so much more comfortable and even look better. What I like about these is that they are neutral with a little twist. I think the pearls add a little interest to an otherwise basic pair of slide on sandals.

5. WENDY Bow Wedges: I am not sure how I feel about the whole 'flatform' trend, but something about these I just loved! I think it was the gingham, and the cute little bow. I am still waiting for these to come in the mail, and I am hoping that they are black/white gingham. I searched high and low to see if they were navy/white or black/white! LOL! I will keep you posted as to the fit and the color when they arrive-I can't wait!

6. Zigi Soho Sandal: These are so fun, aren't they?! I have a wedding and then I am headed to NYC in a little over a week, so I thought these would be a fun alternative to my basic black heels that I would normally wear. Here's to hoping they fit well and aren't too terribly uncomfortable!

Casual Army Green Duster


It was a little chilly yet again this weekend! During the week though, it was SO HOT. Like in the nineties and humid hot! I guess you would say the cooler air was a little welcomed!

But with that said, I hated the thought of having to layer yet again. Despite the heat, I will say that I am so ready for the warm temps to stay. 

This lightweight duster was the perfect layering piece! I also can't wait to use it as a beach coverup later this summer! Plus, I really can't say no to anything army green! It is a go-to color of mine!

Romping in Rompers


I love a good romper, especially when it feels like I am wearing pajamas! I wore this over the weekend when I was out and about with the family. We had promised the girls some new spring/summer clothes so we ventured out for a bit after church!

While I realize a romper cut like this isn't ideal for all shapes, I couldn't help but fall in love with the comfort and the stripes! I did purchase this in floral as well, and I must say it looks really great with heels. I do realize this one would look better with some heels, or even wedges, but I couldn't muster up sporting heels while running errands with my fam!

Sleeveless Sweater Style


When I purchased this sweater I really didn't have any idea as to how I was going to style it. I didn't anticipate layering it, but sure enough it had been a little too chilly to wear it without a tee shirt underneath. 

While you could easily toss a jacket or a blazer over it, I feel like it would defeat the purpose of wearing it- why would you want to cover up the adorable tie detail?!

Once I thought to toss on a tee underneath, I knew I wanted to dress it down. I feel like the white tee made it a little more casual. This could easily be dressed up, though, if you have to for work! I think this sweater would look adorable with a pair of chino's and heels!

For me, though-wearing it with my Converse is perfect!
