This weeks roundup of outfits could also be titled “how to style a giant band-aid on your shin”. Box jumps: 1, Erin: 0. If the same thing ever happens to you and you find yourself rocking a big ole stick-on accessory, simply reference this post on how to wear it with confidence 😉 This weeks lineup of outfits have to be some of my favorites – a mix of casual and cute dinner looks, poolside attire and of course – warm and cozy outfits for those cooler summer nights. I should have you covered for nearly every occasion, but if there are certain styles you’d like to see more of, drop them below in the comments and I’ll aim to please!  Who’s ready to get their shop on?

One more thing actually 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!
