Light Layers

Weekend dressing is made easier with these fun layered-look tops. I'm just throwing on a basic tee but the pretty lace floral hem makes the whole look more special. It inspired me actually do my hair and put on some pretty shoes instead of just spending the day looking as if I just rolled off of my bed.

Idea Denim

My casual attire year-round pretty much always includes denim jeans. Since the weather is warming up quickly in the Southeast however, we're starting to border on uncomfortable-in-long-pants temps, and that means my beloved jeans may need some to take a break soon so my legs can breathe.

But I do love denim so I've been thinking of other ways to incorporate the material into my more casual outfits as the temps rise. Here are a few ideas I've been playing around with -


Dress: J.Crew factory exact (similar denim dresses)
Belt: J.Crew factory (similar belts)
Brooch: Zara (similar rhinestone brooches)
Sunglasses Le Specs exact (other glasses by Le Specs / similar tortoise sunglasses)
Shoes: Soludos platform exact (other shoes by Soludos / similar espadrilles)
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff exact (other bags by Rebecca Minkoff / similar hobos)


Sweater: J.Crew factory exact (similar pink sweaters)
Shorts: Old Navy (similar distressed shorts)
Necklace: Anthropologie exact (similar pendant necklaces)
Bag: J.Crew exact (similar printed bags)
Shoes: Tory Burch exact (other sandals by Tory Burch / similar thong sandals)

A Little Bit Nautical with Manic Trout

manic trout + stripes

When I first saw the heart and soul necklace by Manic Trout, I was immediately taken with the bold brass seahorse and beautiful hue of the magnesite beads, so it seemed natural to pair it initially with crisp white and blue stripes, a nod to the nautical. The necklace doesn't mean a whole lot more than a clean pallet to let the design itself shine.

So thank you, Manic Trout, for thinking of me with your beautiful creations! Manic Trout jewelry is designed and created in Austin, TX by the talented Sierra Bailey. Her classic yet eclectic pieces are available on her web site, in shops around the US and even via Amazon.
