Ruffles

There are so many things I love about this little dress.  From the cute print, to the cut-out shoulders, to the ruffle detail on the sleeves, it’s pretty much perfect in every way.  And because I am a gal who loves to plan my outfit around my shoes, I especially love that it matches my favorite pink lace-up heels.

Happy Friday!  Hope you all have something fun planned this weekend.  In case you haven’t seen my Insta or Snap (follow me on both here: alldolledupblog), I am up in Montana visiting family and have been spending everyday out on the water.  So I’m obviously looking forward to some more boating adventures over the weekend, and hopefully a little huckleberry ice cream!

Enjoy your weekend!

xoxo,

Cardi

I tend to gravitate towards denim jackets when I’m looking for a layering piece to wear over a dress.  But this spring, I have been starting to reach towards cardigans more often.  And I have to say, I am loving the look and the ease of pairing a cardigan with a dress.  A longer cardi is also a great option to wear over a dress that borders on the shorter side for a little added coverage.

Tied Up

I always love the look of tying a jacket or shirt around your waist, so I’m obviously a fan of the built-in version this season.  It’s a great twist on a typical summer dress and is a super easy style to dress up or dress down. Plus, this particular dress is on major sale right now and I can’t recommend it enough!

Summer Dresses

I am and always have been a jeans and t-shirt kind of a girl.  But last summer, I made an effort to start wearing more dresses.  Especially during the summer months.  And you know what?  It is definitely something that has stuck.  I find myself wearing more and more dresses these days without even making a conscious effort to do so.  And this easy, breezy swing dress from Express is at the top of my list.  I first found the long sleeve version this spring (which you can see how I styled it here), and then found it in sleeveless stripes, and now in this gorgeous cobalt blue.  It is definitely a go-to in my wardrobe and as I head out on vacation today, you can guarantee it’s packed neatly in my suitcase!

Hope you are all having a wonderful week!  Happy hump day!

 

 

Stripes

I am really on a stripe kick these days.  And this dress from Express is seriously one of my very pieces in my closet.  It is cute and comfy and the perfect piece to throw on for a BBQ, bike ride, dinner at home, or for a night on the town.  All you have to do is change out your shoes and jewelry and it takes on a completely different personality every time. In fact, I love this dress so much (and it’s on sale for such a great price!) that I just picked it up in two more colors!  If there is one dress you buy this summer, I am telling you, this is the one.  You’re welcome!

T-Shirt Dress

I’ve always wanted a cute t-shirt dress, but could never find one that was flattering and didn’t, ah-hem, put a little too much on display.  So I was thrilled when I stumbled on this one at the Gap recently.  Not only is it super comfy, but it hits in all the right places and is thick enough that it doesn’t show every detail.  Plus, it comes in a ton of cute colors !

Geometry

I was never a huge fan of geometry, but I do love a great geometric print!  And this dress is no exception.  Not only is it fun and unique, but it’s also a fantastic piece to wear for work or play.  And if you are looking to make the most of your wardrobe, then a versatile dress (or two!) is key!

Neon+Surplus

I love pairing the unexpected together. And while neon plus army surplus might not be something you would automatically think to pair up, together they just might be one of my new favorite combos of the summer. Plus, if you follow this blog, then you know I can’t get enough of this vest and LOVE coming up with new ways to style it (see it here, and here)…

Tie One On

I think it’s safe to say that this look is going to be a staple for me this summer. Since chambray shirts are always on constant rotation in my closet, it’s no wonder that I am loving the new sleeveless version hitting stores right now. And I’m particularly loving them when tied and worn over pretty summer dresses. A look that’s polished and sweet-but easy as one, two, three…

Where The Green Grass Grows

Not only did J and I purchase a house two years ago that needed a complete gut job and remodel on the inside, but it also needed a total overhaul of the outside as well. And after countless projects and a lot of hard work (we have done the majority of it ourselves), we are literally one project away from completion-both inside and out. And since one of my favorite things about warmer weather is fresh-cut grass (both the smell and the color), I can’t tell you how excited I am to spend countless evenings on the back deck enjoying ours this summer. And I am guessing this also might just be the explanation as to why I am so enamored with my grass-green tote right now…

I am on the road again this week for work-which marks two weeks in a row.  And while I love my job, I can’t even begin to describe how much I am looking forward to getting home tomorrow night, and spending a nice relaxing weekend lounging in our finished backyard.

Hope you are all having a wonderful week.  Thank you for stopping by!
