Weekends are all about relaxation, right?

Today’s agenda: Find a grassy knoll, kick off your shoes, spread out a blanket, pour a glass of rosè, and spend the afternoon under the sun reading a favorite book.

Come Monday morning, you’ll be glad you did ;)

I told y’all that I have a new addiction: matching sets.

They are easy.

They are adorable.

They look chic.

And you really can’t do much to screw them up.

Need I say more?!

Festival Season with Express

Did your Instagram catch on fire from all the recent music festival fashion pics?! I know mine did, but despite being supremely jealous that I wasn’t able to attend, I was excited that I could at least gather some shopping inspiration!

And one thing that I noticed over and over was that the festival looks weren’t so much about the clothes as they were the accessories…..specifically shoes and hats! Fedoras continued to be the perfect topper to any look (and the best way to disguise dirty hair!), but one trend in accessories that really emerged more than ever was FRINGE! And if you’ve been into any designer shoe store lately, you’ve probably been tempted to take the plunge and splurge…but no need….because once again, Express has come to the rescue with their inexpensive take on the trend!

And when combining my strong Express accessories, I wanted to keep the rest of my look fairly simple….and what else is easier and simpler than all black?! A black top and an asymmetrical cotton skirt are the perfect combination that won’t compete with the rest of my look!

What does your festival fashion attire consist of?!

Is there anything more perfect than a Saturday afternoon spent in great fitting denim, sipping a Coca-Cola with your pup in tow?!  Me and my rescue pitbull, Fancy, recently spent an afternoon at our favorite restaurant & dog park, Mutts Canine Cantina, and we could not have asked for better weather for a fun day!

Fancy, thanks for always being my partner in crime and my favorite four legged best friend!

Perhaps its the southern girl in me, or maybe its a trick that simplifies getting ready in the morning, but wearing matching sets is something that I have been pretty obsessed with lately.

Not only can you wear the 2 pieces together and get a killer outfit, but you can mix & match them with multiple items in your closet and continue to get lots of mileage out of your purchase! I scored this BCBG set in Chicago recently….and then I scooped up another white suit set that you’ll see on the blog soon, as well!

How do you feel about the matchy-matchy sets?!

Its been a humid and hot 84 degrees here in Dallas this entire week, which had quickly motivated me to switch out my Fall/Winter closet and replace it with my Spring/Summer items.

But its with a little but of sad emotion that as I begin to store things away for 6 months….so I am trying to squeeze any last wear out of some of my faves…..and leather tends to be the main fabric that I always miss the most.

What items are you going to miss wearing as the weather continues to warm up?

PS. To all my peeps in SAN FRANCISCO, don’t forget I am coming to see you this Saturday, April 11 at Macy’s Pleasanton at 1pm for the Spring Fashion Show! I can’t wait to share my favorite looks and meet you all!

Monday calls for something bold.

Splurge for that extra shot of expresso in your morning coffee.

Eat all the fries.

Skip the gym.

Stay for one extra drink at happy hour.

Why? Because…..well, Monday, ugh.

Scroll My Favorite MICHAEL Michael Kors Items from Nordstrom Below!

So I am kindof obsessed with wearing white…

…and its not something that I ever apologize for! I know a lot of y’all don’t think wearing head to toe white is acceptable before Easter or after Labor Day, but breaking fashion rules is fun, right?! But one thing that is important to know about wearing all white is that your accessories will make or break the look…and luckily for me, the accessories department at Nordstrom always comes to the rescue!

During a recent (bi-weekly) trip to the mall last week, Nordstrom and I had a MAH-JOR moment: Not only did I do a little (okay, ALOT) of damage in their designer shoe department, but it was actually this miniature MICHAEL Michael Kors satchel from the handbag department that had me at hello! White, black, and saddle leather?! Kindof a no brainer purchase, right?! And I also knew that this item would be the perfect accent to my spring a summer crisp, white looks!

Let’s just say, Nordstrom knows what they’re doing when it comes to accessories…and closet is SUPER grateful ;)

What’s your favorite way to spruce up an all white look?

Since its Friday and we are all just ready to end the day and start the weekend, I am gonna keep this short….

If there is ONE piece your closet needs right now, its FLARE JEANS. Find a pair that fit like a glove, have enough length, and give your bootie some oomph….and you’ll never take them off. TRUST ME.

I scored these babies by Frame and loved them so much…..I couldn’t resist buying the exact same pair in white, too.  So, plan on seeing those in several upcoming outfit posts!

Happy Flare Jean Friday!

Daily Basics with Express

Basics are something that any closet can’t live without.  They are what outfits are built around.  They are what you reach for on those days you just don’t want to get dressed.  And they are the utmost essentials to any good wardrobe.

Express continues to impress me….not only with their season trend pieces….but with their inexpensive, go-to basics (remember these boyfriend jeans?!). And they have done it again with their new line of oh-so-soft-and-broken-in tees for Spring. Not only have I been living in this long sleeve white tee every single day for the past week (ps. it gets softer and softer with every wash!) but I’ve also given my traditional white and blue denim a run for their money with these new gray jeans.  Distressed, check. Perfect fit, check. Inexpensive, check.

These Express basics….well, they’re actually no so basic after all!  The collection is selling out quickly, so shop HERE to get yours now…and new styles will be arriving the beginning of June!
