Rainy Day Blues

It’s a miracle I was able to shot this weekend. It has been raining non-stop, and the only day it didn’t rain was Saturday. However, we had J’s birthday party so I wasn’t able to shoot that day. Luckily we were driving by one of my favorite walls on Sunday and there was a break in the rain so we hopped out and got it done.
This top is my new favorite. I got it about 2 weeks ago and I’ve already worn it 4 times!! As soon as I saw it hanging on the rack, I knew I had to have it. I love the color for summer and the hi-low silhouette is great. (I front tuck everything so this shirt does all the work for me!) It’s also extremely soft; which is always a plus. The main reason I’ve been anxious to share this top is it would be great for Memorial Day this weekend. Pair it with white shorts, or denim, add some red tassel earrings, and you’ll be good to go for a cookout or any other plans you may have.

Top: Fig & Willow | Shorts: Target old (similar here & here) | Shoes: Steve Madden (similar in more sizes here) | Sunnies: Ray-Ban | Lipstick: Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm in Woppin Watermelon 

Speaking of MDW, what are your plans? I think we are going to head to Tampa for a day and go out on a boat. The rest of the weekend we are planning on taking it easy and relaxing. We are constantly go-go-go so it’s nice to have a 3-day weekend and take a day to just relax.
Today I'm linking up with The Fashion CanvasWalking in Memphis in High Heels, & Fit Mommy in Heels for the Trend Spin Linkup!

Rain Rain Go Away

Hi Babes!
This weekend was so busy with J’s birthday, Mother’s Day, & TPC going on that I got 0 content shot. I figured no worries I can knock out a shoot or two after work on Monday. Well, boy was I wrong. It’s literally been raining all day everyday the past two days, and we are supposed to get more tonight, tomorrow & Friday. (Insert eye-roll emjoi here) Luckily I stumbled upon an old outfit that I never posted, and although the top is no longer available, I’ve found lots of similar options for y’all!
You already know I LOVE stripes so this shirt was a no brainer. I love the flared sleeves and the fact that it’s so long in the back. It’s also off the shoulder so you have ALL the trends going on. I paired it with booties because I shot it back in the fall, however, you could totally pair it with some ankle strap sandals or pointy toe heels for a great date night outfit!

Top: Shein old (similar herehere & here love thisthis & this) | Jeans: Articles of Society | Shoes: Lulu's (sold out in my color) | Purse: Michael Kors old (similar here & here) | Sunnies: Nordstrom old (similar here & here) | Lipstick: I'm not 100% sure since these were taken so long ago. If I had to guess I'd say Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy in Bois De Rose

Like I said above, this shirt is long gone, but I linked lots of other shirting style options that will look great with jeans or shorts all summer long!
How’s the weather where you live? I feel like it’s raining all over the country. As long as it stops by Saturday I’m totally ok with it!

Thanks for reading. It really means so much to me!!

Par for the Course (pt 2)

Tuesday I shared a great romper and short outfit for TPC; today I’m sharing what I think is everyone’s go to… dresses. I have two great options to share with you today that are also from Fig & Willow. They are both very different, but I think they are both perfect for a day at TPC.
Let’s kick things off with this stripe option. This one is a little preppy, but really lends itself to a day on the course. I love how easy and effortless it is, and how it instantly makes you look put together. The easy shape of the dress is great; however, if you’ve followed me for a while you know the stripes are what really drew me in. I’m typically a more vertical stripe kind of gal, but this dress caught my eye and just had TPC written all over it. If I wasn’t already sold on the colors, stripes & silhouette it also has POCKETS!! Anything with pockets is an automatic purchase in my book. This is just the ultimate outfit for Friday, Saturday or Sunday at TPC.

This next dress is a little more casual and extremely effortless. If I had to describe my everyday style I would say casual but put together. As soon as I put this dress on I knew it was so ME. This is a great option for The Players because you don’t have to worry about wind, as it’ a bit longer, however, you don’t have to worry about tripping or holding up a maxi length dress either. (#ShortGirlProblems) It will also allow you to sit without giving anyone a show. The best part is that it’s really lightweight which is great since it should be pretty warm out there this weekend. For all these reasons this is exactly what you will find me wearing at the tournament tomorrow.

Sandals Outfit 1: Steve Madden old (similar herehere & here) | Sandals Outfit 2: Steve Madden (mine are the cognac color) | Sunnies: Lulu's | Lipstick: Taste Lipsurgence in Wonder (Wonder is no longer available. Enchanted looks pretty similar.)

Both of these will look great with flats, simple jewels and sunnies. I would also recommend a hat. (Great for keeping the sun off your face, which is always important.) I usually go with a baseball hat since floppy hats can be a challenge to keep on. However, if you can keep a bigger hat on I say you should rock it girlfriend!

Are you heading to TPC this weekend? Have my posts helped?
If you are interested in either of these dresses or the pieces from Tuesday head to Fig & Willow in Atlantic Beach. You are sure to find something cute for TPC and maybe even a nice gift for Mom.
I hope y’all have a great weekend and thanks for reading.

Huge thank you to Fig &Willow for helping me find so many great options for TPC.

Par for the Course (TPC Outfits Pt 1)

It’s that time of the year again…TPC!
If you’re local to Jacksonville, you probably go to this event every year. As much as it’s a golf event, it’s also a very social event. For this reason every year about a month before, I start brain storming what to wear. (I love people watching and checking out everyone’s style.) It’s usually extremely warm, and requires lots of walking; so you want to be comfortable. This year I’ve teamed up with Fig& Willow (a local boutique) to put together some outfit inspiration in case you’re headed to the course. Today I’m sharing two great options and I’ll be bringing you two more on Thursday.  So you will definitely want to check back if you’ll be going during the week and again this weekend.

First up is this adorable romper! Rompers are perfect for TPC because you want to stay cool, and you also don’t want to worry about your dress flying up, if it’s windy. I also think rompers are just so dang comfortable. This one has such a cute square print and fun thread detailing. Pair it with flats and some cute sunnies and you’ll be good to go.

This next outfit is SO golf, in my opinion. My mom actually picked out this entire outfit so go mom.
This one is a great shorts option so again you don’t have to worry about holding down your dress or skirt. Shorts or rompers are also great because I like to sit if we are staying at one hole for a while and the grass can make my legs SO itchy. If you’re in a dress you can’t put your legs up, but the shorts give you that option. These have the cutest scallop detail at the hem, which is very on trend at the moment. I also love this cute cold shoulder top. It’s very light and flowy so even though the sleeves are long it will keep you nice and cool.
Again I paired this outfit with sandals and some cute sunnies. You will notice ALL my outfits are paired with flats/sandals. As cute as those wedges might be girlfriend, you need to leave them at home. You do not want to be the girl in your group that is complaining about walking, or that your feet are hurting an hour in. The key to any event like this is being cute, but comfortable.

All clothes c/o Fig & Willow
Shoes: Steve Madden old (similar here) | Sunnies: Lulu's | Lipstick: Taste Lipsurgence in Wonder (I think this is being discontinued. This is the same product in a similar color.)

I hope these outfits have helped give you some ideas. All clothing items are currently available at Fig & Willow in Atlantic Beach. If these aren’t quite your style I’ll be back Thursday with some really cute dress options. I also highly suggest popping into Fig & Willow one day at lunch or after work to pick up some super cute items. They have great non-TPC pieces as well. (I literally wanted the ENTIRE store!) 

Are any of y’all heading out to TPC this week? I’d love to hear your plans and what you’ll be wearing.
