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!

I hope you all had a great weekend and are off to a wonderful start to your week so far! 

It's been rather hot, humid and muggy, so I've been reaching for pieces that are easy to work with and are comfortable for the weather. Dresses and jumpsuits have been on heavy rotations and those in linen and silk fabrics have been my favorite especially. This silk shift dress I'm wearing has been my summer go-to for years now. You may remember it from my How to Wear a Dress as a Blouse With Pantpost from a few years ago. It's one of these timeless classics, even though it's in a bold color.

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!

Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends! 

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 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 beautiful friends!

The temperatures are beginning to rise and it's feeling more like summer and I couldn't be happier! I love being outdoors and summer date nights are my favorite; I love dining outside when possible. Though our summer dates will be looking a lot different these days with little miss Aviah, but we don't mind at all! Even though the little one will be tagging along for our evening dates, that doesn't mean that I'll be forgoing my dressed up chic outfits entirely. Since we'll be cutting the nights short, wearing my heels and impractical lace tops is totally doable ;)

Happy Friday my sweet friends!

First, I'd like to thank all of you for your incredibly kind words on last week's Mother's Day post. I loved reading how some of you other mamas could relate to what I've experienced so far and the support all of you in general showed. I also want to briefly mention that I'm trying to get pack on track with my regular posting schedule starting next week. I mentioned in this post that we found out my mother-in-law has stage 3 stomach cancer. Since that post, she's been in and out of the hospital (mostly in) and has undergone quite a few surgeries. We've all been taking turns in spending time with her in the hospital, which has of course effected my availability in scheduling content for the blog. Things seem to be somewhat improving, which will enable me to work on content and interact with you all once again.

Happy Monday my sweet friends!

Since I've been taking the time to spend with loved ones, I haven't had the chance to take outfit photos, but thought it would be a great idea to share some red outfits from the archives in hopes of inspiring you in wearing the trending color. Though purple is the color of year, red is still going strong as a trending color this spring and summer. It's a color that looks great on everyone, as it comes in various shades and hues that are sure to flatter any skin tone, cool, warm or in between. I actually touched upon that exact topic in this blog post back when I was pregnant and rediscovering my love for the color. I'm sure you'll find the tips I've shared in the post helpful!

Happy Monday my friends!

One of many ways to look chic in the winter (and all year long) is to go monochrome. We've talked about the power of monochrome quite a few times on the blog, but I wanted to break it down a bit more in this post and we all know that repetition and the more examples make for better understanding and inspiration. At least that what works for me! So, I figured it would be a great idea to compile them all into one post
