Jumpsuit Crazy

I could not be more excited that it is finally Friday.  I’m starting off my weekend having lunch with Lindsey (my partner in crime), then mani/pedi followed by a date night with the hubs.  Tomorrow, I may actually spend some time at the pool and simply relax!

I don’t know about you all, but I love the idea of putting on one piece of clothing and having my outfit complete.  A great way to accomplish this is by choosing a jumpsuit.  You can go with a bold print, a solid, dress it up or make it casual.

Here is a jumpsuit that I bought from Petal, a boutique in Charlotte, NC.  I paired it with a floppy hat and a big pair of statement earrings and I had an effortless look!

Draped Silk Jumpsuit from Anthropologie


Wide Leg Trouser Jumpsuit from ASOS


Diane von Furstenberg ‘Cynthia’ Jumpsuit (available at Nordstrom)

Next time you are looking for an easy way to look put-together, don’t forget about the jumpsuit.

Happy Friday!!!



Bright and Bold Maxi Dresses

I have always been amazed by how much of an impact wearing a happy print or bright colors can have on my mood.  I was immediately drawn to this dress for exactly that reason.    The vibrant colors caught my eye…and I admit that I struggle to resist a well done tie-dye piece.  A maxi dress paired with a denim jacket is one of my very favorite looks.  This outfit can transition so well from daytime to nighttime by trading in flat sandals for a great pair of wedges.  Clothing line Young, Fabulous & Broke offers a multitude of amazing maxi dresses that are sure to make a visual impact.

We are approaching the perfect time of year to wear a beautiful maxi dress and to throw on a denim jacket.  I am anxiously awaiting the cooler nights…this combination will be just perfect!

Happy Thursday, everyone!





From Office to Dinner

I am always looking for articles of clothing that will easily transition from office to night out.  Last Wednesday, Lindsey and I went to an event at Madewell (read about it here) and there is never a time I go into Madewell and walk out empty handed.

Well, I saw this little dress hanging and immediately knew it was perfect for my wardrobe.  I tend to be drawn to dresses that fit around the waist and hang away from my hips.  Plus I love a good striped piece of clothing and this one has a cute zip-back.


Dress: Madewell

I paired the dress with a cute pair of Sam Edelman Wedges, which allows me to add my own personal flair to the dress.


I could not find these exact shoes, but here are some similar styles.
