Happy Monday sweet friends!

We're more than half way into summer, yet August is known for being the hottest month of the season, which means dressing comfortable is very much necessary to get through the day. Whether you're getting up and ready for your 9-5 or jetting off to your final destination for the summer, there's one fabric that should find its way into your wardrobe if it hasn't already, linen.

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends! 

I'm sure many of you prefer to get up and get out on those hot summer days that you have plans for. I, for one, loathe the thought of putting on a full face of makeup followed by standing blank faced in front of my closet without a clue of what to wear because let's face it, when it's hot, it's just too much to overthink. Even though I may have zero interest in contemplating what to wear, I do want to look chic and put together. I believe I've found what's worked for me in making that happen that help me look chic and feel put together without having to put too much effort, allowing me to get on with my day enjoying my summer plans. Here's what they are....

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have seen the IG Story I posted last Tuesday stating that my mother-in-law passed away, after battling stomach cancer for seven long and painful months. I've mentioned her condition a few times on the blog to explain my lack of posts throughout the winter and into spring. It was...

Happy Friday my sweet friends! 

So, as many of you know, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (also known as the #Nsale) early access opened to card holders yesterday. I personally don't have the credit card, but have the rewards card, which grants you the same access. If you shop at Nordstrom frequently or even quarterly, I think it's worth considering, especially during this time of year because the most popular items sell out fast! I can't tell you how many times I've kicked myself for not purchasing something I had been eyeing when it was available and ended up hunting it down and refreshing my browser countless times for it to be restocked. Don't go through this! If you love it, know you'll wear it, and it's within your set budget, get it!

Denim. Probably the most worn fabric, aside from cotton. It's durable, it can be comfortable and certainly is fashionable and timeless. My most popular blog posts are nearly all on the topic of denim and so, I figured it would be only fitting (you see what I did there?) to compile those posts into one to serve as a denim guide.

Happy Wednesday, my sweet friends!

Don't you love it when you shop your closet and create an outfit out of pieces you've had forever, but at the same time think, "why didn't I think of this sooner?" Well, that's exactly what happened when creating today's outfit. Would you believe that the top is actually a romper? I styled it a couple of years ago in this post. The shorts I'm wearing today are a little longer and looser than the romper, so I was able to layer comfortably.

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

I've really been loving the trends that we've been seeing these past few seasons. I feel, for the most part, they're all pretty practical to wear for the everyday, one of which is the straw bag trend. It's not new to this season though, we first saw it take off last season with the cult favorite (literally) Ark Bag from Cult Gaia. I've said this time and time again that what I love about when a trend takes off, is that we begin seeing different variations of it surface. This essentially allows for everyone to embrace the idea of the trend in a way that reflects or merges well with one's personal style or at least inspires us to think a bit outside of the box with a unique piece that still feels very much like ourselves.

Happy Friday my lovely friends! 

I've spoken about my love for monochromatic looks so many times and the flattering effects they can have in both slimming and elongating the body. I've also shared many tips on how to bring them to life by adding and mixing up the details, since they can easily fall flat on the body. Most of the times when I wear them, I'll throw in a hint of another color or a neutral to break things up a bit.

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

On Friday, we talked about how lace is a great fabric for summer nights especially. If you missed that post, you can give it a read here!

Today, we'll be discussing yet another fabric that's ideal for the warmer months, particularly when going the more dressy route for either work or to dress up a denim look and that's satin. 

It's a fabric that's been trending for quite a while, mainly since the 90s comeback began, as well as the pajama trend. Many luxe pajamas are done in this fabric pointing to the reason as to why it's great for the summer, it's cool and comfortable. The soft texture brushes the skin in a way that's comfortable, not to mention it looks luxe. I also love the fluid effect it has when worn in a loose, flowy fit, like the shirt I'm wearing.

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

You all know how much I love graphic tees, I've talked about them quite often here on the blog and wore them a lot when I was pregnant especially. I noticed that I often talk about dressing them up with blazers (see examples here & here), but there are definitely other ways you can dress them up, such as with a pencil skirt, as I've done today.  The one I'm wearing is faux leather, so it's not heavy for the summer months, making it a great option for a summer night out when you know it'll be a bit cooler.
