GO WITH THE (FLO)RAL

Details: Soft Rayon-Twill Full-Leg Crops (floral) c/o J.Jill, here |

This weekend was a scorcher…finally! So naturally, I spent both Saturday and Sunday basking on the beach and enjoying the warmth. There was such a nice breeze by the water that it was difficult to gauge how much sun I was getting and I ended up a little crisp. Now that the weather is finally feeling like the way it’s supposed to, I’ve been excited to try out new outfits. I’ve always been a fan of cropped flowy culottes and these tropical ones from J.Jill have become an all time summer favorite. They are super light weight and breezy. In addition to this funky floral pattern, they are also available in some neutral solids as well as in a deep blue pattern. I paired them with a very fitted top, but I’ve also worn a fun looser fitting and fringe top and it looked just as good. I’ll definitely be experimenting with these this summer and may even purchase another pair (they’re that comfortable!).

COLORFUL CHINOS IT IS

Details: LOFT swing jacket/blazer, similar here | LOFT cropped skinny chinos, here |

My 5-year reunion was this weekend and I’m currently recovering from sleepless nights and belly aching laughs. It was so nice to return to campus and live the dorm life one more time. The weather held up and we were able to bask in the sun while drinking beers and playing games #collegelife. I’m bummed that the rain returns this week, but I’ve learned to live for the weekend. Also, I picked up some QuickTan to get me through these sunless days. It’s the best spray tan in a bottle and it’s what I used all through college so it only felt appropriate to grab some this weekend. If I can’t don my denim cutoffs, I decided to resort to fun colored cropped chino pants and am combatting the chill with this swing jacket/blazer. It’s super lightweight and easy to style with a variety of colors. I’m eagerly waiting to wear bathing suits and flip flops, but until then I’ll be wearing my colorful cropped chinos.

TRADE IN THAT LBD FOR A RED ONE

It really didn’t feel like Christmas this year, and leading up to the day I was super worried that I wouldn’t feel that Christmas spirit. But after seeing my little babes (nieces and nephews) so excited over Santa and all of the presents he brought them, it was hard not to. I’ll be honest, I don’t typically dress up on Christmas day. It’s mostly because I’d rather be comfortable than cute and I like to help in the kitchen or hold a drooling baby without worrying about getting a good outfit dirty. While I don’t typically dress up on Christmas day, that doesn’t mean I don’t love a good dress. I always gravitate to black, but when I saw this red lace bodycon dress, I couldn’t help but grab it. It’s comfortable and I love that it has long sleeves because I do not want my pasty white arms getting any attention. I also really love how vibrant the color red is. It just screams Christmas joy–right? Just because the holidays are coming to a close, doesn’t mean you don’t need a ton of new dresses for 2017 weekends ahead. Speaking of 2017, if you’re still on the hunt for a NYE dress, scoop this one up from Rosegal. Fun tip: it’s not normal bodycon tight, so you can drink as much champagne and chomp on endless apps without feeling like your food baby is showing.

Well, that’s all I got, but I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday filled with Christmas spirit!
