Happy Thursday! I hope everyone’s short week is going well. I have been working at a conference all week instead of being in the office. Honestly it’s been the change of scenery I needed. It’s so nice to change things up every once in a while.

Shorts season is finally upon us. With the weather at a constant warm temperature, shorts are my weekend staple. I have many pairs of shorts, but I always go back to my denim ones.  I snatched these up on a good sale and love how they are folded up. It gives them a more polished look. These shorts are still on sale, so make sure to grab a pair before they’re gone.

I had fun pairing these shorts with a red off the shoulder ruffle top. I paired it with some of my new favorite accessories: these fun tassel earrings and my straw bag. This would be a perfect look for a backyard cookout, siting on a patio with a cocktail or just running around town.

What do you have planned for this weekend?

Thank you to LeStyle25 for gifting me these earrings, all opinions are my own.

Happy Memorial Day! What is better than it being a Monday and not being at work? I am seriously so thankful for an extra day off, I have really needed it!

This weekend we went to Jake’s family reunion. It was definitely nice to catch up with his family. The best part was on Sunday when we got home, we were siting outside working on things and we were both so relaxed. Usually on Sunday evenings, it hits us that we have to go back to reality and we both get sad.

Anyways, I wanted to share one of my favorite looks that I wore recently to Mother’s Day brunch with Jake’s family. I paired a fun striped skirt with an off the shoulder bodysuit, statement earrings and gold wedges. This skirt does run big, so I recommend sizing down for a more fitted look. This exact skirt sold out, but is available in several other patterns. It is on a major sale right now. I have this skirt in several colors and I wear it all of the time to work. For a more professional fit, I wear my regular size. J. Crew Factory is having a major sale where everything is 50% off and I wanted to share my picks below.

I got this off the Circle Lace Off The Shoulder Dress at the start of the season and it has been one of my favorite dresses. I love the navy blue color and the beautiful embroidered details.  It is dressy, yet casual. The flowy fabric makes it comfortable.

It could go from a casual date night with flat sandals to a casual cocktail party. I paired mine with a pink camera bag, gold earrings and some block heel sandals. This dress does run a little big, so I recommend sizing down. I have found Loft runs a little large in general.

It’s All About Embroidery

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start! I don’t know about you, but this weekend flew by for us (they always seem to). On Friday, we went to my hubby’s med school ball and just relaxed the rest of the weekend. He only has 8 more weeks until he starts his 4th year of med school. We are both so ready!

You may have noticed that I am not doing as many blog posts as normal. I am trying to work on a new way to switch things up and maybe drop down to two blog posts weekly instead of three. I am very overwhelmed between blogging and working full-time, so this should help.

IMG_9022IMG_1206One trend I am obsessed with is embroidery.  It’s all about embroidery for summer and spring. It is everywhere from jeans to dresses. I am so glad it’s back because it reminds me of my childhood. I will never forget this little embroidered denim jacket that I had and some jeans with pink flowers. I probably still have them at my parents house.

The thing that I love about embroidery is that it incorporates so many fun colors. Bright colors make me happy, so I jumped on board with this trend quick. It reminds me of a fiesta!IMG_1205

When I wear something embroidered, I like to accessorize with colors that are in the embroidery pattern. Recently we had beautiful weather on a date night, so I decided to wear my new skirt. I decided to play up the pink and tone it down with this black ruffle bodysuit (I promise I don’t wear it everyday).  FYI, this skirt runs small, so I recommend sizing up. I also recommend wearing a bodysuit with it, since it lays better with the skirt.

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

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
