10 Outfits to Wear in Paris

Oh, Paris. I was in my favorite city just over a week ago and it was my shortest trip yet… only three nights. I had plans in London and couldn’t stand the thought of being so close and not making the trip, but I didn’t have time to stay for an extended period. A few days are undoubtedly better than none though! I cried happy tears while I was there and sad tears when I had to leave and I definitely left feeling reenergized, recharged, and re-inspired.

Periwinkle Polka Dots

Pretty pastels are always so fun to bring out once spring rolls around! When I saw this fit and flare dress with subtle polka dots, I knew I had to have it. I used to wear polka dots all the time, but I love how this slightly-frayed fabric is much more subdued with the tonal dots. I was drawn to the white one at first, but like I mentioned in this post, white dresses become a little less versatile when a lot of your summer plans are celebrating your bride-to-be besties. Navy blue has always been one of my favorite colors to wear and decorate with, but the shades of blue in my closet don’t deviate much from the deep hue. I figured I’d take a little step out of my usual comfort zone to wear this pretty periwinkle color. (Plus, hydrangea blue always reminds me of my friend Mackenzie!)

What to Wear to a Music Festival

There have definitely been times where I’ve struggled with what to wear to music festivals. Boho is most certainly not one of the words I’d use to describe my personal style and that tends to be name of the game when it comes to festival fashion. While I don’t want to look out of place, I want to stay true to my own style at the same time… It can be a challenge! When I was preparing and packing for Coachella a few weeks ago, I settled on a dress (the dress I’m wearing here), a bodysuit and shorts combo, and a romper for my three festival outfits. (You can see all three at the end of this post!) I wanted to find a few pieces that could work for Coachella, as well as the next few months of warmer weather, versus buying things just for the sake of the festival. This tie-front midi dress was perfect!

Derby Dress

May always marks the start of dress season for me! I tend to base my outfits around a lot of denim in the colder months, but dresses are my jam when the weather allows. I love to live in little white dresses all summer long, but I’ll admit – they aren’t as versatile when you aren’t the bride-to-be! They’re pretty much off limits for bridal showers and weddings, but there are still plenty of appropriate occasions to style your LWD… Baby showers, Easter, Mother’s Day, 4th of July, fancy brunches, vacations, and Derby Day, too!

Little Lace Dress

It’s crazy to think that summer wedding season is just around the corner, isn’t it? I mean… TOMORROW IS MAY. (!!) How and when did that happen?! 2017 seems to be racing by at lightning speed, to say the least. Lately, as calendars have been pulled up and plans have been discussed, it’s slightly terrifying to see how many summer weekends are already accounted for! Weddings, showers, bachelorette parties, concerts, weekend getaways… It makes my head spin just thinking about it. So many fun things to look forward to, but I can’t help but think we’re all going to blink and it will suddenly feel like fall. It’s a great little reminder to slow down a little bit in the midst of our busy schedules and enjoy every single moment!
