10 breezy white dresses for summer


While we were in Florida for the wedding, I wanted to make a point of stopping on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach since we were so close. In case you're not familiar, it's where all the amaaaaazing shopping is. Fortunately and unfortunately -- depending on how you look at it haha -- we only had time to go on a Sunday morning before everything was open. So while there was no shopping to be had (my husband was thrilled lol), it was nice to do a little exploring. Especially since there was virtually no one else around, which also made taking photos much easier! The street itself is so beautiful. The architecture is intricate and gorgeous and there are little side alleys everywhere that make it feel like you're in another country. If you're ever in the area, I highly recommend taking a stroll down the street...even if you won't be shopping!

And just like every summer, I cannot get enough white dresses right now. Which is actually making it hard to figure out what I'm wearing to a bridal shower on Saturday since that's all I have in my closet lol! This one is available here and keeps coming in and out of stock in different sizes, so if you have to have it like I did, keep checking back! I've also rounded up a handful of other white dresses I'm loving below.

Have a great Tuesday!

20 fall must-haves under $100

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale -- 20 must-haves for fall

Not that you need another reason to love Friday, but if you've been holding out on the Nordstrom sale or aren't a cardholder and have been waiting for today to shop, it's finally time!

I debated doing a massive roundup of favorite products in each category, but I feel like even that can be overdone and overwhelming. Instead, I wanted to focus on things you'll wear over and over again -- the classic blazer, a great fitting pair of jeans, neutral booties that go with anything, etc. -- not just a cute top you'll wear once before it finds its way to the back of your closet. And the best part is everything is under $100 (or way less, in most cases).

I've already mentioned that I have this jacket and it's one of my favorite and most-worn pieces. I also have these jeans in several other washes and the fit is amazing if you love a skinny jean that's truly skinny (just make sure to size up). And you know I'm all about the workout/lounge gear. I have this tank which I wear at least once a week to the gym and this sweatshirt (in black) that I like to put on after working out when it's chilly. And I basically live in these sweats at home.

While I think I'm mostly done purchasing (you can see what I got so far in my try-on session here), there are a few pieces I still have my eye on. I'm mostly waiting for this shirt to come back in stock in my size in white. So good and so cozy! I'll be sure to keep you posted and stay tuned for how I styled some things I got in the coming weeks!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Palm Beach chic

Jumpsuit c/o River Island | Bag c/o River Island | Similar heels | Earrings c/o | Necklace | Sunglasses

Last week we talked about what to wear to a black tie wedding and today I'm sharing what I wore to the welcome party we went to the night before. Backwards, I know. Sorry lol. The dress code said "Palm Beach chic" and, if we're being honest, this girl from the northeast had to do some Googling. Unfortunately I didn't find much.

What I did find -- and ended up seeing a lot of at the party -- were bright colors, prints and patterns (think Lilly Pulitzer). If you've been reading this blog for any length of time you'll know that's not exactly my style -- even though I think others pull it off well! I'm not sure I'll ever be able to pry myself away from my trusty neutrals, but I did opt for something other than black with this blush jumpsuit from River Island. It's the perfect mix of casual and dressy and was lightweight enough to keep cool since it was super humid while we were there. I also happen to think it would look cute with a black leather moto jacket for fall. But maybe that's just my way of keeping the world in balance ;)

Happy almost Friday!
