Happy Friday, ladies! I hope you’ve had a great week – can’t believe how quickly this one flew by…but definitely not complaining that we get to sleep in tomorrow. 😉 It’s a rarity you’ll find me in a dress on any given day (love them but for some reason I can’t stop/won’t stop with my crazy denim obsession), and even in the summer, jeans are one of my go-to outfit staples. Madewell is a brand I continue to spend aaaall my pennies on (…but hey, building a wardrobe you LOVE is totally worth it, right? Oh ya know, always rationalizing my shopping habits over here….), and their denim selection is one of my very favorites. When I saw this particular pair (called the “Perfect Summer Jeans“) hit the websites of numerous retailers, I immediately snatched up a pair. High rise, flattering on the backside (…no pancake butt with these!) and overall just such a great fit – can’t recommend them enough!
As you have probably gathered…I have a strong affinity for tan, brown, dark brown, light brown – aaaall the browns on the color spectrum – shoes. I try my hardest to branch out and put the black pair in my shopping cart, but just before I click “confirm payment” my heartstrings are pulled and I’ve swapped the black woven mules for the brown pair. Immediately, I feel relief. 😉 (Anyone else try to push their “style boundaries” only to run back to your ‘ol reliables? That’s me, all day long!). I know I’m like a broken record about this color, whether it’s for shoes or handbags, but I really just love the warm tones and how a pair of perfect brown/tan/cognac (whatever the word!) adds such an approachable and casual feel to an outfit. Sometimes black can seem too harsh or severe when I’m slipping on my shoes with an outfit, but my trusty brown shoe collection feels less intense and more “me.” If you follow me on the ‘gram, you’ve likely seen quite a few of these kicks before, but I figured a summer shoes roundup was in order to properly give them the spotlight they deserve! 😉 From a summer wedding, to a baby shower, to a date or even a grocery run – these shoes can do it all!
THIS. TEE. It’s the softest thing and the colors + stripes are so fun and retro. Kinda has a 70s vibe to it and I am all about it! Aaand the best part? It’s just $24 (yaaas!). Y’all know I love me a good coffeehouse, and Tom’s Coffee Roasters (yep, owned by Tom’s shoes) is always a solid go-to for a yummy latte and minimal people around so I don’t have to feel completely ridiculous while I snap some quick outfit photos… 😉 (Ohh the weird life of a blogger! haha).
Ohh that perfect yellow color…how stinkin’ cute is this for summer?! I love the updated take on a classic romper – that knot-front is adorable and the ruffle trim adds such a flirty vibe. I don’t feature “occasion” looks that often, but when I spotted this romper I knew it would be such a fun look for anything from a date night to a bright and airy wedding guest outfit. Spilling all the details below! read more
Ohh it’s that time of year… festival season is fast approaching! With Austin City Limits just months away, it’s time to start planning my outfits… and the best part about this particular look? You can wear it aaaall summer long. Levi’s denim shorts are such a classic go-to and always SO cute. Pair with a simple white tee, layered necklaces and a bandana double wrapped and you’re ready to hit the festival grounds!
It’s been a while since I’ve posted an Instagram roundup on my site buuut I feel like so many of these have just been quite perfect for these spring-to-summer days lately. Shop each outfit via the links below and feel free to Pin to your fashion/style Pinterest boards! Just scroll over the image you want to Pin and you’ll see a “Pin It” button pop up in the upper left hand corner – super simple and a great way to save outfit ideas so you can always refer back. Enjoy scoping out 20 of my favorite spring and summer looks!

Happy weekend, ladies! I come bearing some reaaaally great news: Urban Outfitters recently added AfterPay to their site, which means you pay only 25% up front, then pay the rest in four easy equal payments. OMG game changer because online shopping can add up (trust me…I know this all too well haha) and let’s just say when you really want that pair of Jeffrey Campbell flats (I’m talkin’ about these) but the price tag seems a little scary upfront aaand you’ve got a shopping cart filled with 10 other items (hi, that’s me!), AfterPay is the way to go.
Hope y’all are having a wonderful long weekend! Blake and I have been busy spending time with family (my dad was in town this weekend, hooray!) and watching aaaall the crazy basketball playoff games. Tonight’s another big one (…eek! Obvs I’m putting all my positive juju towards the Houston Rockets!), and while we watch, I’ll be putting my multitasking skills to the test as I online shop all of the AMAZING weekend sales. (…True story: I’m a pro by now 😉 ). We don’t have cable, otherwise I would 100% be flipping back and forth between The Bachelor season premiere (…although Blake might be fighting me for the remote haha). I did some sale research this afternoon and rounded up my favorites from a few of my go-to retailers… enjoy some summer shopping, gals!
Happy almost-Friday! I wanted to quickly get this post up because Urban Outfitters (where I got my skirt/tee/hat) is having a MAJOR Memorial Day sale (up to 50% off!) aaand also because this look just screams “give me a beer and an outdoor patio and I’m a happy human!” …Can you tell I’m ready for the weekend? 😉
Austin is filled with so many beautiful lookout points, and Mount Bonnell is one I hold dear to my heart. It’s a short hike up to jaw-drop stunning views of Lake Austin (…and the mega mansions that surround it!), and on a weekday evening it’s not yet filled with tourists. It was once a hidden gem in town, and thankfully on a random Wednesday night as the sun was setting, we were able to set up camp and practice some poses. The sun sets around 8:30pm these days, so luckily most folks had left the area and were headed home – which gave us plenty of space to stretch freely and soak up the cliffside views, lush greenery and open air.
