Instagram Roundup

Happy Friday! I hope you all had a wonderful week and are looking forward to a great weekend. I wanted to start keeping up with Instagram round-ups, so you're able to see my outfits in one place and I can add links to everything for you plus I can go into a bit more detail about sizing. Let me know if this is something you're interested in seeing on a regular basis?

I wore this outfit to our casual Mother's Day Brunch and I felt so effortless in an instant. This button-front cami is only $35 and comes in several colors but I love the neutral tan. I'm wearing a small.

You guys know I can never resist a white top. Especially when it has ruffles. I found this one at T.J.Maxx the other weekend for a steal. I paired it with these Levi's jeans which are so great. They're a skinny style yet somehow have a "mom jean" feel that's still flattering. Slipped on my Everlane loafers for a classic combo. Size up!

I've somehow been very into dresses lately. But not just any dress. Vici dresses. I love the fit and feel of these two styles and they're so effortless to throw on and go. The button-front detailing is too adorable. I'm wearing a small in both dresses. These have been coming in and out of stock, so if they don't have your size, I highly recommend staying on their list to await a re-stock.

I've shared my favorite white slide sandals a few times and wore them here paired with this perfect little gingham off-shoulder wrap dress. You guys, trust me when I say these are SO comfy. No breaking in period, no blisters. Go with everything. They're under $100 and come in several colors.

Summer Wishlist - Things in my Shopping Bag

I hope you're all having a wonderful week! I've been doing a bit of "window" shopping for styles to take me through the season and thought I would share a few things I have my eye on in case you're interested.

We've had some back and forth weather lately and I kind of adore these in-between days. You know those 75-degree days where you can wear jeans and your favorite springy tops paired with your choice of sandals or flats? Days you can walk outside and soak up the sunshine without breaking a sweat. But with May halfway gone, June plus the official start of summer will be here before we know it and I know I'll be savoring warm summer days once they're here. Will you? 

I've been adding several summer-ready styles to my wishlist (and virtual shopping carts across the internet) and also made a "Lust Have" style board on Pinterest + the Shop page of my blog has more. If you can't tell, I'm pretty into feminine pieces. But I really love to find styles I can wear and love beyond one season or one trend. Styles that will (hopefully) stay in my closet plus get plenty of wear. 

And these are a few of my top favorite things on my summer wishlist...

1. These Madewell lace-up sandals. Only $59.50 and will pair with everything.

2. These Levi's Wedgie shorts

3. The perfect sleeveless white lace top. Clearly, you can never have too many. This one from Anthropologie might top my list. 

4. A "golden" bag for summer. I adore the color of this Madewell Mini Transport bag for every day.

5. An easy-breezy day-to-night dress like this $58 style from Free People

6. An effortless, non-denim skirt. Love this one in white. 

7. A neutral, textured slide sandal. Love the subtle fringe on this pair for added interest.

8. A metallic sandal like these Bella Vita slides in gold to add a touch of shine to any look. This brand is so comfy. I also have this pair

9. A floral top. Adore the sleeve detail on this one from Madewell

10. An easy, pretty, wrap tee. This one comes in several colors but I love the natural linen.

What are you shopping for this season? I'd love to hear!

10 Straw Bags On Trend for Spring and Summer

10 Straw Bags On Trend for Spring

With spring officially in full swing and summer on the horizon, I wanted to share my newest favorite bag trend—the straw bag. From straw to rattan to woven, this trend has been going strong this season and I don't see it going anywhere anytime soon, especially with the start of summer around the corner.

I wanted to take a moment to share my two favorite styles in my collection with you plus 8 more on-trend styles to take you through this season and beyond. Bonus points for all of them being under $100!

circle straw bag

A style I'm sure you've been seeing this season is the rattan circle bag and honestly, if you're going to get one rattan or straw bag for spring, I'd go with a circle style. I was skeptical at how much wear I'd get out this bag beyond my tropical vacation and I must say, I've been reaching for it with all of my casual combos just as much as I was during my vacation. The circle silhouette is right on-trend and the style adds a chic and effortless look to any outfit. I personally prefer this natural tone because it goes with everything. 

Sizing tip: Make sure you find one that's big enough to fit your phone! My exact bag is from Kinilush

woven clutch

Another one in my collection is this Free People straw clutch and I love how it can do double duty in terms of wearability. You can use it as a clutch for a summer vacation but it also comes with a strap that can be worn crossbody or on the shoulder for daily wear. It's not often you find a style that can do both. 

I wanted to round up a few more straw bags I'm eying for the season and hope you love them as much as I do. What are your thoughts on this trend for spring?

As always, thank you so much for reading and enjoy your spring and summer!

Dressing for comfort is easily my favorite kind of style. There's something about throwing on my most flattering jeans and slipping into sneakers that makes me feel like I can tackle the day and it's a combination that's quickly taken over my wardrobe. If an outfit makes you feel put-together, cool and comfortable in an instant—you can't beat it. 

For me, pulling off the athleisure trend without feeling frumpy is all about having a few elevated staples. You know—that tee that doesn't have stains, holes and permanent wrinkles, your favorite jeans that suck everything and make your butt look good, a splurge-worthy crossbody bag and a cool pair of kicks. These Keds Ace Sneakers are the epitome of casual-cool and will easily keep you on your feet all day long—from walking the dogs, running after little ones or spending too much time in Target. 

I've teamed up with Zappos.com and I genuinely cannot say enough good things. I bought these Keds sneakers on a Tuesday, they arrived the next day, and I paid zero for that 1-day shipping. They also have amazing customer service and a 365-day return policy which truly comes in handy when your time is precious. 

I haven't stopped wearing these Keds since the day I got them and I love how they're super simple without any overly trendy details. There's a reason you've seen them on the feet of women for 100 years—they're simply classic, timeless style with everyday comfort. And with so many styles to fit your needs for under $80? That's a win in my book. 

For this look, I slipped them on with high-rise jeans with a "Mom" feel and added an effortlessly soft tee and faux leather jacket for added coolness. If you grab your go-to bag (mine is always a crossbody and a circle style is right on trend), you'll be ready for wherever the day takes you but these leather kicks also make your lived-in joggers and a denim jacket look stylish. 

As always, thank you so much for reading,

Tyler
