Girls’ Night Out Looks

Girls’ Night Out Looks

Anyone else in need of a girls’ night out?! It feels like it’s been forever (and a lifetime ago) that we had a proper night out with our girlfriends. Ideally, we would love our girls nights to be monthly, but with kids schedules, work, family gatherings, etc. girls nights are far and few between. When they do happen though, it’s always nice getting dressed up and putting on a fun outfit for the occasion. We have put together a couple of our favorite girls night out looks below-take a look at let us know your favorite!

What do you like to do for girls night?! Whether your girls nights are at a restaurant, on a patio, or at someones house we love these “girls night out” looks that we put together! Cheers, girls!

Denim Shorts for Spring & Summer

Denim Shorts for Spring & Summer

One of my go-to spring and summer wardrobe staples are denim shorts. I love them for so may reasons; they are so versatile, comfortable, and can easily be dressed up or down! See below for some of my favorite ways to style them!

  1. Denim shorts and a casual tank with sneakers

This is such an easy and casual look for the summer-it’s a favorite! Pair these denim shorts from Nordstrom with a cute tank like this and this look can take you from the grocery store, to the pool, to a neighborhood BBQ! Pair with sneakers (like I did!) or sandals.

2. Denim shorts (mine is sold out but similar ones here and here) and a blouse

I love to pair this look with wedges for a girls night out or date night! If you’re looking for a more casual look though switch out the wedges for sandals and you have the perfect outfit for a day of errands or brunch with girlfriends!

3. Denim shorts and button down with booties

Love pairing denim shorts (these are from Target!) with booties like these and a button down for a night out! Switch out the booties for sneakers and throw on a baseball cap and this is the perfect outfit for heading to your littles soccer game, running errands, or just for those unwashed hair days!

Pearl Embellished Items

Pearl Embellished Items

Pearls are an item that have never and will never go out of style, in my mind at least. On a typical day you might find me wearing a pair of pear earrings or wearing my David Yurman cable bracelet with pearls. But other times I will want to have a bit more fun and wear imitation pearl embellished items. Whether it be on my clothes, in my hair, on my bag (you get the point)… adding imitation pearls into the details of your outfit can take any look from basic to a bit more exciting.

  • *Handbag – be vacay-ready with this woven handbag, not headed out of town? it would be perfect for a summer date night too!
    *Headband Set – if you aren’t ready to splurge on any pearl embellished items, this set is a great starting place at under $10 for all three
    *Headband – a great piece to invest in if you know you like headbands
    *Black Heels – the dreamiest pair of heels that would be worn for years to come! totally worth the splurge IMO
  • *Salmon Heels – like the black pair of heeled sandals but not the price? these would be a great alternative
  • *Sweater Dress – the perfect way to dress up a sweatshirt dress is with pearl details!
    *Cropped Sweater – i love the scalloped hem of this cropped sweater
    *Hair Clips – the hair clips i am wearing in the picture above – and that you will be seeing me wear a LOT more of
    *Slide Sandals – yes please! the perfect way to dress up a basic summer day look

Spring Shoes: Splurge vs Save

Spring Shoes: Splurge vs Save

I love shoes and I love spring/summer – put them together and I am happy! haha! Shoes are something that I don’t mind investing in, especially if it’s a pair that I know I am going to be wearing on repeat. But at the same time, they are also something that I don’t mind buying “cheap”. I totally see the value of both splurging on shoes AND saving your money by buying the cheaper (similar) version.

I have rounded up 5 spring friendly shoes and have listed both the splurge shoe and the less expensive but similar option. I hope you find something you like!

Cut-out Trend

Cut-out Trend

One trend we love that we are happy to see everywhere this spring is the cut out trend! We think that this trend, if done properly, can add a little something extra to your basic outfit. We adore that this trend can be transferred and used in all areas of clothing and have tried it in some way in each category.

Above, I styled this trend in 3 different ways. The first way is for a casual date night/girls night look with a simple black cold shoulder top. The middle is for a shower or wedding. And the third is a sundress with a crocheted patchwork, to wear on any summer day! What is your favorite way to wear the cut out trend?

Wedding Guest Dresses

Wedding Guest Dresses

Wedding season is just around the corner and we are hopeful (as we are sure all you brides are) that this year weddings are able to be a bit more pre-covid than last year! Whether the wedding you are attending is going to be a quaint backyard celebration or a larger scale wedding, you will still need a new dress to wear to celebrate the newlyweds. We both have a couple of weddings coming up and figured we would get a jumpstart on dress shopping to be able to share our favorite picks with you. Hopefully what we have put together here will fit any type of wedding you might be attending this spring/summer.

This first set of dresses are all from Nordstrom

peach lace corset * black slip dress * red one shoulder * pink lace * blush ruffle * cobalt one shoulder

This next collage of dresses are from a combination of our favorite places – enjoy!

blue lace * floral maxi * black midi * blush tiered midi * periwinkle * emerald lace * navy lace

Hope these dresses give you some inspiration for your upcoming weddings!

Smocked Dresses

Smocked Dresses

I don’t think anything could be more darling than smocking on a dress. Any amount of smocking and any style of dress – it is a fabulous combination. I recently got the dress that I am wearing in the photo from Amazon, and I could not be more pleased with it! I know this dress will be worn nonstop, all summer long. It is just so perfect for any occasion. Truly. Date night? Wear it off the shoulder with a pair of heels. Baby shower? Pull up those sleeves on your shoulders and pair it with a set of heels. Dinner with girlfriends? Add a jean jacket and some wedges and you are ready to go. Running errands? Pair with a comfy sandal and you are set for the day. See what I mean? Any. Occasion.

How would you wear this dress?

Do you love smocked dresses just as much as I do? Look no further! I’ve rounded up a bunch of my favs. Some will take you to the beach, others will take you to a wedding, and some fall somewhere in between.

Floral Easter Dresses

Floral Easter Dresses

I am so excited for Easter, it is my very favorite holiday! What’s not to love? It’s is the start (in my mind) of spring, the clothes (for the whole family) are so darling, and most importantly it is the celebration of the risen Lord. I love wearing floral year round, but something feels different about floral when spring is upon us. Floral screams Easter to me and I will be wearing this dress for Easter but I’ve found a number of floral pieces that I would love to wear for Easter. The great thing about all of these dresses is that they can be worn for many different occasions. Some would be great dressed down with sandals for a summer day, some would be great for a baby/bridal shower, some work well for weddings – but all are darling! Enjoy!

I hope this collage of floral dresses brings you as much joy as it brings me!
