Pretty Pastels

Dress c/o Karabootique | Blazer (similar) | Purse (similar) | Heels (similar)
Pearl Necklace (similar) | Rose Necklace | Watch (similar) | Bracelet

One thing I have learned since I moved to the south is that "whites season" doesn't wait until Memorial Day...it starts Easter weekend! I love how crisp a bright white pieces look, and when paired with some pastel hues, it creates the perfect spring ensemble for the office or weekend. This dress from Karabootique will be worn quite often as the weather continues to warm up! Be sure to check out Kara's pieces; she has many beautiful sundresses and separates, in sizes that range from petite to fabulously curvy! Thanks for reading, and don't forget to enter to win a J.

Hey there, fashionistas! I hope you all have had a great start to your week! I took a step back from blogging last week to wrap up my surgery rotation and study for my exams. Above is my collection of looks for the past week and a half...and as you can see, I'm still loving florals and coral! Adam and I celebrated 2 years together this past weekend, and I was thankful to have some time off before my new rotation began. Unfortunately, my rotation was cancelled at the last minute, but thankfully, my family medicine preceptor from the fall agreed to take me for another month! It truly was a blessing in disguise! I love the staff at this office, and look forward to absorbing lots of information as boards creep closer and closer :) hard to believe I only have 8 weeks until graduation!!

I hope you all have a great week! Thanks for reading, and don't forget to enter to win a $120 J.Crew gift card here!

Chambray Three Ways: Weekend

Shirt | Tee | Leggings (similar) | Scarf c/o Echo Design (similar, option, option)
Shoes (similar, similar) | Bracelets c/o Jane (similar) | Earrings | Bag (similar)

Ahh, the weekend! It's my time to catch up on the "to do's" that I don't complete during the week! For a trip to the grocery and bank, I choose comfy but polished layers like these! Ladies, if you do not own a pair of thick, ponte leggings, do yourself a favor and GET SOME! I am a huge fan of the comfort level and basic palette that leggings provide for an outfit, but they look a lot nicer when the fabric is opaque! ;) In addition, the heavier weight tends to contour and shape more than a simple cotton spandex blend will do. READ: Shapewear that looks like clothing! I'll throw my chambray shirt over a tunic-length tee, add a bright scarf and fun shoes, and I'm ready to roll.

Also, I am excited to be a guest blogger at All Things Katie Marie tomorrow! Katie is a wife, mom, teacher, fashionista, crafty DIY-er and Pinterest sensation! Her style is classic and fun, and as a new mom, she is teaching her baby girl Taylor to dress for any occasion as well! Be sure to check out my recap of this week's series, and give her some love as well. Thanks for reading, fashionistas!

Chambray Three Ways: Date Night

Shirt | Skirt (similar, sequined, splurge) | Shoes (similar) | Earrings (similar, similar)
Watch | Monogram Bracelet | Twist Bracelet (similar) | Nails
Lips | Cheeks



My weeks are filled with charting, busy clinic days, quizzes, and studying for boards. When the weekend comes, I love to put by work aside and enjoy a date night with Adam! I use this time as an excuse to curl my hair, put on some statement earrings, and enjoy the time off. For this date night look, I paired my favorite faded chambray shirt with a neon skirt and a petal pink cheek for a soft, romantic feel. A simple "arm party" and metallic flats allow the skirt and earrings to take the spotlight! Are you loving neon pieces and feminine makeup as much as I am this season?! Thanks for reading, fashionistas!

Chambray Three Ways: Work

Photo Credit | Shelby of Glitter & Gingham

Dress (similar) | Shirt (similar) | Belt (similar) | Necklace (20% off with code SCODE20)

Today starts a three-part series on one of my favorite wardrobe staples: CHAMBRAY! I find myself wearing this versatile fabric at least once week, at both work and play! For work, I tend to grab my chambray dress and layer it with a bright or bold button down, slip into some polished wedges, and pile on some fun accessories. My other favorite work pairing is a darker wash chambray shirt, paired with a pencil skirt or pixie pant and a statement necklace or scarf.

Does your work environment/dress code allow for chambray to be worn? How do you wear chambray to work? Thanks for reading, and have a great Tuesday!

Happy Monday! It was a gorgeous weekend here - sunny and mid 70's! You can see my excitement for the warmer weather reflected in some springier prints and colors. This week, I will be clocking lots of hours in the operating room before heading home for the weekend to spend Easter with my family. Do you have big weekend plans? Thanks for reading, and stay tuned this week for a series on how to make chambray work for (nearly) every occasion!

Mint + Lime

Shirt (similar) | Skirt (similar) | Wedges (similar) | Purse (similar) | Monogram Necklace

About a month ago, two of my favorite bloggers, Kendi of Kendi Everyday and Rach of Pink Peonies posted looks that combined two green hues: mint and lime, here and here. I never thought to combine these two shades of green, but I tried it for myself, and LOVE the end result. What unlikely color combination are you loving right now?

I apologize for the absence of The Weekly Wardrobe this week. It will return next week for a double dose of daily outfits! Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
