Ruffle Gingham Dress






There's not much that puts a smile on my face on a Monday, but a good dress does. You may remember this dress from my fitting room try-on's. Truth be told, up until this dress, I would have said I'm not a gingham print girl. I love the print on other people, but just never felt very me when I would try a piece on. But leave it to my favorite store to finally convert me! And you guys, today's the last day for Madewell's Insider Sale-15% off everything! It's a win-win whether you go for all the new fall items or all the sale items marked down. You just need to sign up on their site and it's free. I scooped up this tee (I have it in two colors already) and this. But here are the pieces that I'm obsessed with:




And these are on sale that are steals, which I own:

Transitioning Into Fall

Is anyone else looking at the calendar wondering how we are in the middle of August? Raises hand! There's a part of me that feels a bit sad that summer is wrapping up. That the kids (not my kids) are going back to school meaning more traffic on the roads. Those longer evenings won't be here much longer. But then there's that other part that see's those booties and warm layers sound good. Because it would be nice to not have to be sweaty for once. It's that weird middle ground. Dressing for it can also be a little off. You might have started to stock up on those fall pieces and quite frankly would like to wear them not just look at them. Transitioning really is about finding the right pieces. Picking items in darker colors and prints is a happy medium. That can be with clothes or accessories. I've brought out this wool hat that I loved last fall and mixed it in with this floral top for now. It creates texture without physically melting.

Now, let's flashback to last year's look here. These are pieces I still own and wear. And this kinda makes me want to cute my hair this short...

Thanks for linking up with us! You all have some amazing style! Our picks are Jennie from A Pocketful of Polka Dots and Christine from Bon Chic Style!

Casual Weekend Stripes




top c/o tobi // jeans (my favorite high waisted pair!) // espadrilles (go half size up) // purse // hat // rings

The thing about my style over the years has become rather casual. Maybe it's my go with the flow attitude. Maybe it's just the LA vibes. But it comes down to knowing what I feel best in and repeating that formula over and over. So you can say I've grown my collection of stripe tops and jeans this summer. While it might seem redundant to keep buying stripes, I know that those are the pieces that will get worn. It's about finding different variations that keep it interesting, even if you're actually just wearing a stripe top+jeans+espadrilles practically everyday. Needless to say, the second I saw this stripe cold-shoulder number from Tobi, it was a must! It made for the perfect top to throw on right because of course my other half gave me a time limit to get ready this weekend. So maybe that's really why I have an outfit formula...jk!

Do you have an outfit formula that you constantly go back to?
