Knot Tee: June & Hudson (few sizes left so similar here) | Jeans: Articles of Society | Shoes: Converse

First, these jeans are probably the softest jeans I will ever own. Ah they are so stretchy and true to size under $60. This knot tee is perfect for on the go days yet wanting to look like you somewhat tried. It has limited sizes left so I would recommend looking at this option as well that comes in different colors. The knot of the tee also gives the look an accessory so accessorizing is not a must. I usually don’t accessorize way to much anyway but especially on the go days like this look was shot on!

Ok I want your feedback if you all prefer the text in the middle of the photos or underneath? I personally like it at the bottom when I am done scrolling through all the photos but I have read pros and cons to each so I am asking YOU. I tried in between post here for an example of what I am talking about.  I would love to hear back in the comments what you prefer because this little page of mine is for all of YOU out there that take the time to read it daily and who I am SO grateful for.

So who else loves a good chambray shift dress? Throwing on a dress like this is so easy for those effortless days. I especially love the pockets on this dress that make it all worth the $46 spent. I have been a sucker for chambray dresses lately and have this one in my shopping cart next. I foresee a ton of shift chambrays this coming spring. Pair them with these Steve Maddens I can’t stop wearing and you got yourself a look.

I hope you all had a great weekend! This weekend was so eventful with hubs getting sick, birthday parties and hosting my first event/speech! I spoke about pantone colors and again this chambray color is the perfect Serenity color that is one of the two colors of the year! Anyways, it was an eventful weekend and this week is going to get more busy. Remember to always stop and slow down the most important things in life. Like, building the most important relationships you have in your life. Cherish them and work to make them stronger wether it’s your mom, spouse, bf, friend.

Ok first how darling is the back to this top.  I love the criss cross in the front and an extra criss cross party in the back. What a tank that will get people talking. It comes in white and black under $40. I would recommend snagging one of these tops before they sell out. They are the perfect summer tanks to pair with some fun summer printed shorts like these. For this look, I paired the top with these wide leg suit pants that I have all heart eyes for. I love a high wasted pants and the color is on fire to make you stand out. This color is also on the pantone spring trends 2016 called “fiesta”. I want the fiesta girl emoji right about now.

I hope you all have a happy Friday! Thanks for stopping by and following along all week. This week I still have a list of things to play catch up on but excited to spend it next to the hubby!

Crushing on Grays

Pumps: Vince Camuto(sale) | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Purse: Halogen(sale) | Necklace: Kendra Scott | Chain Wallet: Rebecca Minkoff(major sale) | Earrings: Bauble Bar | Watch: La Mer Collection

Ok it may be obvious that I have had a mad crush on grays lately. Lila Gray (or Gray) is also a Pantone color for Spring 2016 which has me giddy inside. I have rounded up some of my favorite gray accessories and majority are on sale like this amazing chain wallet I need/want for going out nights. I think I love gray accessories so much because it is considered a neutral color in my book that will just go with about everything. Don’t get me wrong, this girl loves her color, but sometimes I feel like I have so much color that it gets harder and harder to pair things together. Anyone else or just me? I need to start going back to the basics so I can wear items more.  I love that you can find most of these grays on sale which is a huge plus. Like, I have had my eye on these pumps for sometime now and of course they are sold out in my size, so grab them while you can!

The guide is also shop able so you can click on the picture of the item and it will take you directly where the product  is found. Thanks for following along and happy Thursday!
