Does anyone else get really tired of professional clothes? Sometimes if I could wear jeans, my life would be way easier.  Don’t get me wrong, I love dressing up but sometimes I just feel so limited with professional dress.  That’s why I decided to trade in my blazer for a moto jacket! It still gets the job done and checks the professional box but definitely adds a little flavor!  How do you switch up your professional outfits? Let me know in the comments below!

summer ready

Nothing screams summer to me more than a blue and white striped dress! I can’t help to notice my closet filling with blue and white seer sucker patterns and shirt dresses.  I specifically love these dresses with a touch of embroidery.  When I saw this one at Target in the Who What Wear Collection, I knew I had to snatch it up.  This is definitely going to be a dress I wear on repeat during the summer. It is not only light and airy but could be dressed up or down depending on shoes and accessories.  I loved pairing it with a summer hat for a more beachy, nautical look. What is your go to summer dress?

dainty details

Ever since I got married 3 years ago, I have been searching for some affordable stackable bands in rose gold and white gold to pair with my engagement ring and wedding band. I absolutely love the thin, dainty band on my engagement ring and I wanted my wedding band to stand out and have a different more vintage feel to it. I chose the last ring pictured in the photos above and I love it!  I wanted to take the risk and order it in rose gold, but at the store where we purchased our wedding bands, they didn’t have rose gold in stock and once you ordered it, there was no exchanging.  At the time, I didn’t want to take the risk and the white gold was in stock for me to try on.  As soon as I saw everly rings on instagram a few months ago, I fell in love!!  I love the dainty and elegant styles of the rings and that you have the option of getting different metal colors. Not only are the beautiful, they are very affordable!  One band will cost $99, three bands for $150, and five for $250.  I plan on pairing these with my engagement ring an wedding band mostly, but I will also stack them on my other hand too for a different look.

You can shop the bands I am wearing here:

Victoria Beckham for Target- pretty in pink

pink drop waist dress

If you grew up belting out the spice girl’s songs, you know the significance of a Victoria Beckham collection at Target.  Posh spice was every girl’s fashion icon.  This is my first pick from the collection! I am surprised at how colorful the collection is but don’t get me wrong that is not a complaint! It makes my heart happy to know that I can rock this dress to work all summer and channel my inner Elle Woods.

This dress is pretty true to size, maybe slightly bigger than regular Target sizes. I am wearing a medium, and although it’s a little loose, I like the fit.  If you’re ordering online, just take note of the return policy.  It is different than the standard Target return (90 days) which seems like a lifetime.  You only have 14 days to get your money back if you don’t like the fit!

I also snagged the blue and white striped dress and I can’t wait to show y’all how I styled it!  What is your favorite piece in the collection?

There is something so effortless about a denim dress! You can dress it down with some white keds or dress it up with open toe booties as pictured.  The one I am wearing is from TJ Maxx and unfortunately I can’t link it for you here but I am rounding up some of my favorite denim dresses from ASOS.  They have so many cute picks! Do you all love denim dresses as much as I do? Where did you find your favorite?
