For the farmers market on Sunday, I made the not-so-smart decision to wear a maxi dress. It was crazy hot and crazy humid, and I definitely would have been better off with shorts. But we must suffer for the sake of fashion, right? I do love this maxi, particularly when paired with a big floppy hat (the ideal sun protection) and a straw bag (the perfect bag for picking up produce at the market).

Keeping things simple

Is today Friday? No? Close enough, right? This week has been a busy one for me, from trying to catch up on things while I spent last week traveling to training a new team member. When things get too busy for me to handle, I reach for easy pieces. For me, that means stripes and neutrals in a simple silhouette.

Spring layers

As I’ve mentioned before, spring is the trickiest season in terms of getting dressed every day. For me, denim is still my go-to (as it has been all winter), but I begin incorporating light colors and lightweight fabrics into my daily outfits. This jacket from Nordstrom was a little intimidating at first due to the crazy volume at the hips, but the key is to keep everything else streamlined and draw attention away from the volume with a pattern and a pop of color in a statement necklace. Seriously, I’ve worn this outfit at least once a week since we started getting slightly warmer weather. When it works, you just go with it!

When in doubt, wear a hat

When in need of some hair help, I wear a hat. When nothing seems to be working accessory-wise, I wear a hat. Hats are my go-to (proof here), especially wider-brim fedoras. Come spring, though, I may be integrating a few more baseball caps (insert collective gasp here) into my regular wardrobe. 

How was your weekend? After a spectacular girls’ night on Friday, we went to see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (pretty good, in my opinion) and topped off the weekend with homemade sweet potato fries. Bring it on, Monday!

Pops of yellow

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I had a blast seeing old friends from college and road-tripping through a part of the country I’ve never been in before. It was wonderful to come back to these fall leaves (the trees farther north had already lost all their leaves). The best way to celebrate the beauty of the season? With a “blank” slate of neutrals and a pop of yellow.
