In My Closet

The Summer White Dress Edit

In honor of my baby sister getting married tomorrow, I’ve created a white dress round up for the warm weather seasons. If you catch me in summer, odds are I’m in a white dress.. I don’t care where I’m going, what the activity is or what the weather like–a white dress is always the answer. I wear one under a denim jacket more often than not, but don’t sleep on the trench coat option for a rainy day or the leather jacket to toughen up the most feminine of frocks on chilly summer nights. Here are my top picks at every price point:

Groomsman Gift Ideas

Want to know my most pinned photo of all time? O’s groomsmen gifts to his friends on our wedding day. It’s a head scratcher, for sure, but those are the facts. Since our wedding day 8 years ago, it has consistently gotten pinned at least 100 times a month which leads me to believe one thing: folks are curious about this whole genre. O gifted his groomsmen a watch, cufflinks and a pair of superhero socks to be worn on that day because he’s fancy like that (and he was still playing football at that time so…you know, disposable income looked a little different.) Here are the items I advise friends to gift on their big day:

White Top + Denim

There are about 10 items I’d call wardrobe essentials. They change depending on your job, the seasons and your location. Two items on that list that never change no matter who or where you are a great pair of jeans and a white top.

The Travel Items I’ve Got My Eye On

Keeping in the theme of travel this week, I’m one week out from a quick weekend trip with the kids and less than one month out from moving back to Dallas from our little stint in Memphis. Needless to say, I’ve been evaluating our suitcases and accessories pretty heavily to make sure everything is as practical and efficient as it should be. While I feel I’ve got our travel system down to a science, there’s always room for improvement! After much research, these are the things that made the list:

J.Crew & Madewell Sale Favorites: Spring Essentials

blush pants. belt bag. eyelet sweater. floral sneaker. neck scarf. panama hat. white swimsuit. striped tee. white overalls. white pajamas. gingham flats. watch. white sundress.

It’s rare that two of my favorite stores have a Sale on new inventory at the same time but here we are. What better way to celebrate the official start of Spring (yesterday!!) than with a closet refresh? If you found yourself with some holes in your wardrobe and you wanted to make smart investments in essentials, you’ve come to the right place! 

ShopBop Sale Favorites & Where to Invest

It’s that time again, friends. Here are my favorite picks from the sale to get your wardrobe ready for the sun. Yes, at ShopBop most items are pretty pricey even with that “sale” word there, so feel no pressure to even browse if the timing isn’t right, but I’ve dug through thousands of items to find a select few that meet the mark. Whether you’ve been saving to invest in some items and would love to save some pennies on them or if you’ve KonMari’d your entire closet away to make room for things that fit properly or are wanting to begin adding some special, “forever” pieces then keep reading!
