What is it about silk blouses that draws me to them? Perhaps, it’s the lightness of the material or the airy feeling once it hits the skin. They’re definitely a go to piece for me with the warmer weather. What I hate more than anything is that sticky feeling when your clothes start sticking to your skin. I have long been a fan of Joie and this blouse is no exception. I love the vibrant orange color and the one contrasting blue stripe. What’s your go-to favorite piece during the summer? Looking forward to see all your summer styles with the link-up!

There’s something uniquely different about seersucker fabric. Even in any form of clothing, it always seems to convey an airy, wind-in-your-face-I’m-on-a-sailboat feel. To complement this skirt and its feel, I paired it with a white knit top and gave it some pops of color with the teal clutch. I kept the palette neutral with the black quilted ballet flats and a lighter charcoal-colored necklace.

I hope you’re having a happy Wednesday, and maybe this outfit will inspire your upcoming weekend plans!

Eyelet peplum

outfits comment

There are so many trends this spring that it’s been a difficult choice while clothes shopping. Sadly, I don’t have an unlimited budget (a girl can wish, right?) so I love it when I can find a piece that incorporates many current and “in” looks.

I found this great eyelet peplum top and immediately knew that it was an item I would able to wear into the summertime. The white color and eyelet fabric gives an airy feel and the peplum bottom gives it a feminine flare. To dress up the top and make it work appropriate, I would pair it with trousers or a skirt and pair it with either a cardigan or blazer. Are you trying any trends this season?

I love attending weddings – not only is it always a great opportunity to see other friends or family that I don’t get to see as often as I’d like but also, a time to enjoy and bask in the love and happiness of the newly wed couple. This past weekend’s wedding was no exception. The weather was wonderful – not too cold, not too hot. The atmosphere was excellent – little details from the bride and groom surrounded the event and also allowed the guests to learn more about the lovely couple! I love that they played the wedding shoe game – full of interesting facts they agreed (or sometimes disagreed) on. What is your favorite thing about a wedding?
