wear to where: spring sports sidelines!

Spring sports are in FULL SWING in my house. Oh my word does my calendar look scary these days… kidding, kind of. I’m happy to get back out the fields/courts to cheer on my kids and always try to look pulled together but casual. Right now I’m still wearing winter coats to events but by next week we should finally be in full swing warmer weather and I can’t wait to wear some cute looks on the sidelines. 

Today I pulled together 3 simple but pulled together looks for the sidelines this spring…

(above) I love how easy a tank dress is for warm weather. You can add a jacket if needed and sneakers make it easy for schlepping coolers and stadium chairs all around.

(above) Jeans and sweatshirts are my go-to for spring sports. This bag is so cute and it’s actually a cooler bag! Great for cold drinks or orange wedges… 😉

(above) This mama sweatshirt is adorable and I love it paired with a big tote and easy denim shorts.

wear to where: everyday spring looks from the Shopbop sale!

The Shopbop BUY MORE, SAVE MORE sale is here! This sale only comes around two times a year and it’s such a big deal because these are brands that rarely go on sale and it’s a great time to make some investment purchases. Shopbop is definitely more designer-y than most department stores but I think there are still some great affordable or mid-range price point pieces that are available and included in the sale! Some styles sell out quickly so snag them now if you want them.

I have used this sale in the past to invest in some amazing pieces that I’ve now owned for many years. It’s always a sale I enjoy shopping. Today I pulled together three spring everyday looks that are head to to on sale… I hope you love this inspiration! Happy shopping!

wear to where: spring events!

 This spring is going to be a BUSY one with graduations, baby showers, weddings and of course, Easter is coming up soon too! I’ve had tons of requests for dresses to wear to spring events. Today I pulled together four GORGEOUS dress looks for whatever is on your spring social calendar. 

(above) Who can resist a gorgeous floral dress for spring? This one has such a such a gorgeous neckline and ruching which is so flattering.

(above) A little black dress works for ALL seasons and I especially love it in eyelet for spring and summer! 
(above) This floral is so unique and beautiful. I love that it’s BOLD while still being classic. This is the perfect feminine piece for spring events.

(above) I can’t ever resist a gorgeous white dress. This one is lined with a breezy cut for all body types. I love it with rattan accents for a super summery look. 

wear to where: beach vacation!

 It’s that time of year when everyone is heading somewhere warm to escape the cold winter! I’ve gotten lots of reader requests for warm weather vacation wear and today I am delivering….

Today I focused mostly on swim looks with outfits that work for the beach or pool whether you are escaping on a couples only trip or taking the entire family. All of these looks are focused on style and comfort while on the beach or at the pool. I hope you find lots of inspiration here… I know I am ready to book a trip ASAP.

(above) I LOVE a sarong, it’s so lightweight and flattering to wear on the beach playing with the kids or reading or running to grab cold bevies. It’s a chic and timeless look! 

(above) This swimsuit is one of my all time favorites. I’ve owned it in black forever. Super comfortable and flattering! 

(above) For the pool to a bike ride to lunch and back to the pool this layered look is perfect for a busy pool day! The top doubles as a sunguard at the end of the day or a swim cover up!

(above) Simple but glam I just love a long swim cover up! Paired with a high waist swim bottom this look is mom friendly and comfortable!

I rarely resolve to work out more for the New Year, but I am more inspired to stock up on a few new pieces for my fitness wardrobe in the dead of the winter. It’s a small sliver of joy. This year I am resolving to WALK more which unfortunately involves the treadmill… I would love to be able to do it outside but the weather doesn’t usually play along this time of year. Walking is so refreshing for me and I always feel my best when I’m getting my 10,000 steps regularly. 2020 taught me to walk out the stress and the tension and it’s not only good for your body… it’s been amazing for my mind too. I’ll blast music or listen to a podcast or sometimes just tune into nature (when outside) and just leave the problems of the world behind. 

But whether you are walking more, meeting up with friends as accountability partners or just staying with your usual fitness schedule… some new workout outfits always make the process a little more fun! Here are some really fun looks I pulled together – I hope you find some inspiration here!

(above) Joggers and cozy layers make for the perfect running around town look… or to meet with your new workout buddy to start the year right! 

(above) Go BOLD in bright pinks and a monochrome look to get motivated to feel your best by spring! I love this ensemble… so cute! 

(above) Chic and sleek this fun look is perfect for meeting a bestie for a walk or hitting up some low intensity yoga to start the year on a zen note. 

wear to where: New Years Eve!

I am *most likely* staying home for NYE this year… however I’ve hardly thought that far in advance yet! But why not pull together some super fab looks for however you are spending the evening saying goodbye to 2021…

(above) This dress just screams ‘roaring 20s’ but in a super modern way. If you have ultra fabulous plans for New Years Eve I highly recommend this dress!
Shop the look: gold dress, black heels, clutch, earrings, coat

(above) Staying cozy at home for the holiday?!? Most likely me too! This star sweatsuit is PERFECTLY festive and looks oh so cozy for a movie marathon with a cheers at midnight.

(above) Can’t decide whether to dress up or dress down? This look is the perfect in between! Pair your favorite denim with a sparkly top and VOILA! It’s time to welcome 2022 with open arms…

wear to where: cold winter days!

Baby it’s cold outside! I’m back in winter boots again for dog walks, errands and every time I leave the house basically! I would much rather a cute pair of flats or some comfy sneakers but it’s been bitterly cold and snowy here, so there isn’t much of a choice.

I’ve had a lot of questions about what to wear with snow boots since there are so many denim styles these days. It’s true that really only skinny jeans or leggings work well with snow boots. If you’ve seen some other cute ways to style boots, send them to me! But practically speaking I can’t see another way. I had straight leg jeans on the other day and needed to take my dog for a quick walk and yes, I could tuck them into my boots, but it was very awkward. Here are some very cute ways to style some winter boots that I am loving this season…

wear to where: holiday parties!

 It’s time to get festive and celebrate the holidays! From small gatherings to larger ones, whatever your holiday social calendar involves… it’s time to celebrate! Today I pulled together a few holiday party looks that I hope you enjoy from quiet nights at home celebrating with the family to the annual White Elephant parties and everything in between after a year with no holiday celebrations it’s a great time to dress up and celebrate!

 Thanksgiving is only a week away! I’m so excited for this holiday this year, not sure why… maybe the mashed potatoes have something to do with it? But seriously I always love Thanksgiving and usually our family is traveling but we decided to stay home this year and I am SO looking forward to a cozy weekend at home with TONS of good food and just lots of relaxing down time. 

Whether you are staying home, traveling to see family, attending a Friends-giving, ordering a meal to-go or cooking in the kitchen all day – you deserve a gorgeous outfit to celebrate this year! (In my opinion.) I’ve got a little something for everyone here with cozy pieces for a day at home with the family or something a little dressier if that is what you are looking forward to as well. I hope you enjoy this inspiration!

I love a sweater and denim combo and with a plaid scarf this look is perfectly festive and festive for the main event!

A gorgeous floral blouse is what I am craving for this holiday celebration! So pretty and feminine. I love it with tall boots and a gorgeous necklace set.

Sweater dresses are so popular right now and this looks perfectly pulled together and also VERY comfortable after a big meal. 

An oversized sweater and your favorite pairs of jeans is a classic combo for family time!

 Today’s post is a super fun one… we are talking COLD weather. And while I am one that doesn’t love cold weather, I do have to say… I’m here for cold weather fashion. Haha! Scarves and hats and boots and coats are some of my favorite pieces to shop for and when the cold weather strikes you really want to make sure you have the right clothing for it. After living in the midwest for my whole life and snowy Michigan for over half my life I’ve gotten pretty good at layers and keeping warm.

I thought it would be fun today pull together some cold weather inspiration a little early for those of you that might be booking cold weather travel. Wine tasting, leaf peeping, trips to the mountains or even a little early start on ski season is popular this time of year and I’ve got three looks perfect for those activities. Or if you just want to get an early start on winter shopping… that works too!

Stay tuned later this week for some travel inspiration for warm weather climates as well. Since that is also a very popular way to escape in the fall too… 

I am in LOVE with these boots! This look is perfect for a road trip to see leaves and stop at some of your favorite sights. I would wear this for a leaf peeping trip in Northern Michigan with a stop at our favorite brewery or lunch spot!

Wine tasting in the fall is so fun here in Michigan and I’m sure in other popular wine localities around the country. Or if you even brewery tours/stops. I love that this look is a little more dressed up but perfect for staying comfortable and warm.

Layers are key when the cold weather strikes! This look is perfect for antiquing and brunching with friends in the mountains.
