Happy Thursday! Memorial Day is on Monday, so that means summer is basically around the corner.  It looks like the weather will be beautiful this weekend, so you better believe I will be dressed in all bright colors and tassels celebrating the long weekend.

I wanted to share a little Memorial Day inspiration. When I think of Memorial Day attire, I think festive summer wear like shorts, white jeans or sundresses. I also think bright colors. This outfit combines my favorite trends of the season: cold shoulders, ruffles, tassels and embroidery.

We are attending a family reunion on Saturday, so we will be casual. This could be a good option.

This exact clutch sold out, but here are some other amazing options. (Click the photo to be directed to the link)

Popping Champagne For Some Exciting News

Happy Friday, y’all!

I took a little break and I didn’t do a blog post on Wednesday since I was so overwhelmed and unorganized from being out of town over the weekend. Sometimes taking a step back is much needed.

I am back and have a special announcement…last week I received an email that I have been accepted into Reward Style’s LiketoKnow.it program! When I started a blog, being accepted into Reward Style was my #1 goal. I always wanted to be part of this program, but never thought it was something I could achieve. I remember right when I started  posting outfit pictures on Instagram, my sister-in-law asked me when I was going to get on LiketoKnow.it. I told her it would be a while, if ever. Hard work pays off!

If you don’t know about this program, it is a big deal to be accepted this early on. Today is my 3rd full month of blogging. It literally took a whole month to find out, but I am so excited! Huge bloggers/influencers like Katey McFarlan and Emily Gemma are part of the program, so I was literally shaking when I read the acceptance email. I feel like a legit blogger now!

What is LiketoKnow.it?

LiketoKnow.it is a service that allows you to shop products you see in your Instagram feed. Instagram doesn’t allow clickable links to products, so when you see a product or outfit you like, you can’t just click over to the product directly from the Instagram post. With LiketoKnow.it,  you can just “like” the post as usual and get an email sent to you with product links.

How to sign up

1. Register your email at LiketoKnow.it.

2. Like Instagram posts that mention LiketoKnow.it.

3. Once you sign up, you will automatically receive an email with ready-to-shop product links for photos you like on Instagram.

Now that the news is out, I also wanted to share one of my favorite outfits that I recently wore recently. I thought the champagne picture was very fitting.

I received this jacket from Coalition LA and LOVE it! It is the perfect thing to throw on during a cold spring day and I know it will be perfect for fall/winter. For reference, I am wearing an XS and it fits like a glove. The cool thing about this brand is that the products are vegan.

The jacket really gives this chiffon tulip skirt a little edge. I think the striped shirt and the black and nude shoes really tied the skirt and jacket together. I wanted to dress this look up, so I wore a statement necklace and studded pumps.

Cheers!

Dressing For A Rehearsal Dinner

IMG_7104IMG_1008

Happy Friday! I am so glad it’s the almost the weekend. This time last week, we were heading down to Dallas for a fun wedding weekend. Although it was amazing, we’re so excited to spend time at home.

Jake is in between rotations this weekend and will be starting Pediatrics on Monday. We will be taking advantage of him being free over the weekend, since free weekends will soon be rare again. He has had a full month of elective rotations, so we got a little spoiled with no weekend work. The weather looks nice tomorrow, so that always makes the weekend more fun. We don’t have any set plans, but I know we will do a date of some sort.

IMG_1009IMG_1007

I am meeting up with a blogger to start taking pictures together. I am also hoping to organize my closet and move the winter clothes to the top rack. My poor husband is getting exhausted being an Instagram husband taking most of my pictures, so I am working with other bloggers to take pictures of each other.  I’m excited to start working with them!IMG_7095

Now that it’s wedding season, you might be invited to a rehearsal dinner if you’re in the wedding party or are a close family member of the bride or groom. Most rehearsal dinners are not formal; they’re usually more cocktail attire. I determine what I am going to wear by the location of the dinner and I used the invitation as a guide.

IMG_7103

The one we recently went to was at a brewery. I was not really sure what to expect, so I played it safe with a little black dress. My rule of thumb is, it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed. I wanted to still look trendy, so I wore a cold shoulder dress. One of my favorite things about LBD’s is they’re like a blank canvas. I wanted to have fun with this look, so I wore a statement necklace, leopard pumps and my new pink bag.

Dressing Up Jeans

Hey everyone! We’re finally halfway to the weekend. This week has been way better than last, since I’m organized and have been sleeping better. Work has still been stressful though since we’re currently undergoing a lot of change. We are also busy, so I am trying to keep up.

IMG_1005

Jake is on the last week of his elective rotations and has really seemed to enjoy them. I cannot tell you how ready I am for him to find out what he matched into. Luckily he will find out in less than a year (March 16,2018). I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! I am hoping it goes by fast. He starts a new rotation on Monday, so I am taking advantage of our time together. I know he will be super busy soon.

It is officially spring as of Monday and we’ve had beautiful weather lately. I’ve had fun dressing for spring. One thing I cannot get enough of lately is my white jeans. I got a new pair at the beginning of the season and they’re my favorites.  I picked up this gorgeous cold shoulder ruffle blouse at Target and have loved it. It is perfect for a date night.

I am all about dressing up, but sometimes it’s nice to just wear jeans, especially when the weather is chilly. I decided to pair this look with these gorgeous chandelier earrings to dress up this look. Statement earrings and heels are always a great way to dress up jeans. It seems like accessories are what make all the difference.

Happy Wednesday! This week is starting to look up, since we are halfway to the weekend. So far, being very organized has helped this week not be so chaotic. I have been busy with work and blogging, but it has been much more manageable.

IMG_5981IMG_5982

The weather is a little chilly here still, so I have found leather jackets to be a go-to piece lately. When putting this look together, I couldn’t really decide what to wear. Leopard is a neutral to me and pink is my favorite color, so that’s where I got my inspiration.

IMG_5985IMG_0626

One thing I’m loving lately is mixing a classic dress with an edgy piece, such as a leather jacket. I paired a classic A line dress with with this jacket and added a pop of pink to give it a little color. To make this look a little trendy, I wore lace up shoes.

Also, I don’t know if you noticed, but I FINALLY have a logo. Please let me know what you think!

Happy Hump Day! My hubby started his Anesthesia elective rotation on Monday and it’s been a change of pace from his normal rotations. He’s loving it! Elective rotations don’t have letter grades, so he hasn’t had to do a lot of studying. He’s been extra helpful around the house, which is much appreciated. It’s nice to have a little help every once in a while. Also, he just found out that he got an A on his Neurology rotation. That’s 5 As so far this year. I’m so happy for him and proud of him!img_4262

img_4258

It’s officially March, so that means the first day of spring is in 20 days. I may have jumped the gun a little with this outfit, but recently we had a day where the weather was in the high 70’s, so we went to meet up with some friends on a patio and I wanted to dress for the weather.img_4242img_4267

I decided to break the whole you can’t wear white until Easter rule. I wore this fun long sleeve black floral off the shoulder top that I found recently found. Although it is not technically spring yet, I thought the black made it a little more transitional. Off the shoulder tops/ dresses are everywhere this year and are a trend I’m loving. This top does run large, I sized down for a more fitted look. I decided to pair the look with pops of pink, since that was in the floral pattern. I wore pink statement earrings, a pink bracelet, and my new pink purse.img_4255

At last…we have made it to Friday! This weekend will be extra special since my hubby is in between rotations and will be on a straight month of two consecutive 2-week elective rotations. He will be doing Anesthesia, which right now is his main interest, and then Dermatology to see if he likes it. Neuro has honestly been the most miserable rotation, so I’m excited for brighter days ahead. It’s very fitting that Neuro is ending just as spring is about to begin!

Spring is around the corner and moto jackets are all the rage right now. When I was shopping not too long ago, I found this amazing moto jacket in powder blue. Moto jackets are very trendy, so I was excited to find this one for cheap. Powder blue is a color I don’t wear too often, but I like it. It is subtle and perfect for spring.

I paired this outfit with some cobalt blue accessories to add some brightness to the outfit. I also wore my new favorite white bell sleeve top. This would be another perfect casual Friday look. I’m excited to wear this little jacket with other pieces in my closet. The best part of this look was my nails matched my jacket and I didn’t do it on purpose. These bracelets are also 20% off with code LIFEOFAMEDSCHOOLWIFE.

Because it’s Wednesday, and “on Wednesday we wear pink,” (Mean Girls is the best), I decided to wear this cute little blush fringe wrap. The wrap kept me warm and helped me feel put together.

I found this wrap at Target when I was supposed to be grocery shopping. The quality is very good and I am happy with the purchase. It comes in several neutral colors, but blush is the color of the season so I went for it. (The blush unfortunately is unavailable, but there is a gorgeous blue color available. I have also linked some very similar blush options.) Blush and fringe are two of my favorite things right now. I love blush because it gives you a pop of color, but is very understated. It’s a perfect spring color!

This wrap is the perfect way to transition from cold to warmer days. I wore mine with a long sleeve top since it was chilly, but it would work with short sleeves as the weather gets in the 60s. I also paired it with my favorite riding boots and a glam statement necklace. This necklace is sold out, but I have linked a very similar one. It’s a great addition to any outfit.

I got these boots about 5 years ago when I was in college and they have held up beautifully! I feel like I have got my money’s worth for them. This Friday is casual Friday, so this would be a perfect pick!

How is everyone’s week going so far?

Beating the Monday Blues

Happy Monday everyone, I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Jake has his Neuro final this coming Friday, so we didn’t do a whole lot this weekend. Jake was on call until late Friday, so once he got home it was basically bed time. On Saturday we met up with some friends for a quick dinner and Jake was off to bed by 9 p.m. He had to be at the hospital early for morning rounds. This will be a very busy week for him, but I am thankful that the next month will be pretty relaxed. This month long clerkship has felt like 6 months since I rarely get to see Jake.

I want to take a second to brag on him for getting an A in his family medicine clerkship. He has got all A’s this year. I’m such a proud wife! I went to my doctor’s office the other day because I had an ear infection. The family doctor that I see was also Jake’s attending physician during his clerkship. When the doctor came in the room to see me he immediately knew I was Jake’s wife and went on and on about how smart and quick at learning he is. I’ve always known Jake was smart, but it is always nice to hear it from a very well respected physician!

Last weekend, I wore this little number to the OKC Thunder game. It was a beautiful day, but I knew it would be chilly at night so I brought a little leather jacket. This leather jacket has been one of my favorites because the camel brown matches literally everything. I do want to note the jacket runs a little small. Since the OKC Thunder’s main color is cobalt, I wore my favorite off the shoulder dress. Off the shoulder tops/dresses are really in right now and I love them for summer and spring.

Since it’s still February, I was trying to dress transitional with my outfit. To make it transitional, I wore camel booties and the jacket. In the summer, the dress would be perfect with sandals. I decided to keep the accessories simple, since it was a causal event date. I got this necklace as a gift with purchase and I really love it.

This outfit sure will help you beat the Monday blues!

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope everyone has had a nice week. I feel like this week has been a lot of go go go between being a wife, working and having an ear infection. My husband has been so busy with his current rotation (Neurology), so I feel like by the time he gets home I need to have dinner on the table, he studies for a few hours and is off to bed and up again at 4:30 a.m. I am thankful next week is his last week of this rotation. To be honest, this rotation has been the worst. On the bright side, this week actually went by pretty quickly.

The past couple days, we’ve had really pretty weather, so I am starting to get inspired with spring outfits. Luckily I just had my birthday, so I got a few new fun pieces for spring. I try to only incorporate a few new trendy pieces each season, since we’re on a budget.

When I saw this hot pink moto jacket, I am pretty sure my jaw dropped! I did a double take because the color is so eye catching. I just knew I had to have it because it’s the perfect Barbie lipstick pink color. Do you ever feel that way about something? I usually wait and think about my purchases, but ended up asking for it for my birthday.

Moto jackets are one of those trends I never thought I would like until I tried one on. I did size down for a tighter fit, since some seem to run larger. I think the pretty color also helped. These jackets are fun because they make a statement by adding a little edge. I wore this classic Lilly Pulitzer dress and these new fun drop earrings with mine. I feel like I will be wearing this jacket too much. It would be great with some neutrals or other prints.

What spring trends are you loving right now?
