Coming to you from sunny Orange Beach, Alabama this morning. I’m sitting here looking at the ocean while spying on two dolphins who keep swimming around. My mug is full of coffee, my precious little nephew is giggling next to me and our neighboring condo is cookin’ up some serious bacon which is making me drool. Needless to say, it’s a type of morning I could get used to. While I am going to be doing a lot less work from here this week, I did want to pop on here real quick and leave you with last weeks roundup of outfits.

Before we dive in, let’s get the logistics out of the way to make this process easier on you – for sizing reference, I am 5’4, 125 lbs on a good day, typically a 2 in tops/dresses and 26 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 30DDD [I get it from my momma]. Hopefully, this helps when determining what size you’d need. Also, feel free to follow along here for daily outfits and check out this Pinterest board where you can also get some ideas! Which reminds me, you can pin any of these looks below to save for future reference! Simply click on the links below and you will be taken directly to the retailer where you can shop! Alright, fellow “I like to get dressed” friends, let’s begin!

Sometimes they are too tight, too short, too loose and the list of all of the discomforts of shorts goes on. Today, we’re here to put some of those discomforts to rest and […]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.
