striped top and floral skirt via M Loves M
This outfit is a little mix of dressed up and dressed down. Anytime I wear a midi skirt I feel like such a fancy lady but I decided to make it a little more appropriate for everyday with a striped top. I threw on these black and white heels to echo the combo in the top and added a bright yellow clutch for a little more color. Yellow always makes me feel a little happier, too!

This weekend was such a fun whirlwind! Matthew and I went down to San Diego on Friday to celebrate his sister Rachel's wedding weekend. She made the most beautiful bride. I think this is only the third wedding we've been to after our own, and I still tear up every time. Weddings are such beautiful occasions and it's such an honor to be a part of a day the couple will remember for the rest of our lives. And I'm not gonna lie, kinda makes me want to have another wedding. To Matthew of course! Maybe at 10 years we'll renew our vows.  Any excuse for a pretty white dress and a party with cake! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend too! Can you believe it's the last week of July?! Summer, slow down pretty please!

the friday five via M Loves M

Kind of inspired by neutrals and pinks lately. I love this ladylike satchel bag for fall and these laced sandal booties would look SO cute with jeans, skirts or dresses. And they're on sale for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! This Say Yes printed sweatshirt is really cute too! And this gauzy pink skirt. I wasn't originally thinking of wearing them together but seeing my picks laid out like this I think they'd all work together. And the pink cat eye sunnies totally tops it all off!

What's on your wish list these days?


floral jeans

Floral jeans are the easiest things to wear! They're instant print, instant color, instant happy. I love that they can immediately turn a plain old outfit into something a little more fun. I paired these jeans with this loose drapey top. Just like the floral print on the jeans, the ruffled hem gives this top a little something extra. It was an easy outfit for walking around Santa Monica and grabbing fish tacos.
