Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. We had a pretty laid back weekend, since Jake is getting down to the wire with this semester. He only has 2 more weeks until he is done with his 3rd year of medical school, so he has a lot of studying for his final shelf exam.

Supporting small businesses is something I love to do! I wanted to introduce you all to one of my new favorite Etsy shops, S E Kennedy Designs. Recently I connected with Sarah Beth and she is the sweetest single mom to two precious little boys. She has definitely had a rough year personally, but she is so strong and has started a business from the ground up.  Her necklaces are custom made and handmade and she has such a talent.

The thing I love most about her line is how she embraces her southern roots. She is based out of Hampton, South Carolina and has designed her jewelry to go with a lot of Lilly Pulitzer. I’ve been a huge fan of her work, so when she reached out to partner with me, I was so excited to pick out a piece!

I picked the beaded tassel necklace/ the turquoise and teal drop earrings because I felt like they would be perfect for summer.  You can expect to see these pieces on repeat! I paired them with one of my favorite lace dresses. I cannot get enough lace, I even wrote a blog post on lace dresses recently. You can check it out here. The necklace has a little bit of cobalt, so I can see myself pairing it with a cobalt dress or even a light pink dress to have some contrast. I have a similar pair of earrings in pink and I picked these because they add the perfect finishing touch to any outfit.

I love that she incorporates a lot of tassels in her line. This is one of my favorite trends lately. Make sure to check out her Instagram account, where she is always posting pictures of her new items.

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.

Work Wear Wednesday

Happy Wednesday! We are half way through the work week! I am counting down the days until the weekend. One thing I especially struggle with both working a full time job and blogging is lack of time. Especially in the morning, since I am sooo not a morning person. Organization is key for me and one thing I do each Sunday is pick out each work outfit for the upcoming week. This is a major time saver for me. Also, it saves me from the “I have nothing to wear” panic when I’m in a hurry.

When it comes to work wear, I tend to be less inspired and I get bored of my clothes quickly. I don’t like to buy a lot work clothes, so I like to use what I already have and change it up.

On Monday, I was not happy for the weekend to be over and I was feeling unmotivated, so I picked out a more fun look. I notice this helps with my attitude! I wore this new tweed skirt that I got during the Loft sale. I wanted to share it because it shows you can wear a statement necklace and a print and still be professional. I paired it with all navy and a pop of blush, since it’s the big color for spring. I walk a lot at work, so I paired it with low nude colored shoes. In the future, I plan to wear the skirt with a blush top, a red necklace, or a white top to change it up. Even emerald green or yellow would work too.

I love to incorporate bright colors and prints into my work attire so I don’t get bored. I am very creative and drawn to bright things. I work in marketing, so I need to be a little more creative than some other occupations. I love to wear bold prints like leopard and bright colors. I have found that statement necklaces or colorful cardigans help my wardrobe stay fresh and less boring.

Happy Friday, everyone! It is finally the weekend! My hubby is finishing his last day of his anesthesia clerkship and has loved the rotation. He is pretty sure he wants to be an anesthesiologist.

One of the colors that I am loving for spring is powder blue. It’s not a color I usually go for, but I am finding myself drawn to it. When I saw this moto jacket I “had” to have it. Moto jackets are a trend I never pictured myself liking, but when I found a pink one (see this post) it was a game changer. I think the key for me is finding one with a good fit.

I wore this look to a meeting recently and had fun with it. This look could go for work, church or even a date night. I liked that it was a traditional piece mixed with something edgy. Lately, I am also noticing I love to mix traditional and edgy. It created a unique look, which I like. To top this outfit off, I wore some statement earrings that I made at the Kendra Scott color bar. I love these earrings and the way the jacket lays, I decided to go with some earrings.

What is everyone doing this weekend?
