I just purchased the red button front dress for a sweet and simple summer outfit! I think that gingham off the shoulder might have to make its way into my closet soon, too! Do you have a favorite from the bunch or one that I missed? Let me know in the comments, and tell me: what are you Memorial Day weekend plans?!

Yellow OTS Top // Jeans (similar) // Sandals // Earrings (similar)

Yellow is such a happy color! Since the sun is finally shining regularly and the temps are climbing super quickly, I'm excited to break out all of my open back, off the shoulder, strappy tops and dresses! The midwest doesn't do heat lightly, so when I saw this sweet yellow OTS top at Pink Blush, I just had to add it to my arsenal!

I love PinkBlush for their affordable, boutique styles! This top is only $37 and comes in both yellow and pink stripes! Sizes are limited so hurry before they sell out! You can see more affordable and fun tops on their site, here! Speaking of affordable--have you checked out the new Time & Tru line at Walmart? These sandals were less than $6 and go with literally anything. I'm thinking about going to pick them up in black and brown, too!

I'm heading back to Lexington for a week over Memorial Day and think this top might have to come with. Are you making any exciting summer plans, yet? Spill the details in the comments!



15+ Last Minute Gifts for Graduates That Aren't Just Cash!

As much as every graduate probably loves (and let's be honest--needs) money, sometimes it's nice to give your grad something a little more personal and practical to celebrate this big occasion! Today, I teamed up with my sister, Hannah, to share a few ideas that would be perfect for the college-bound graduate! (Bonus: most are available for 2-Day shipping!) 


No more fussing with tangled cords when you're trying to study! These little ear buds are perfect for any graduate and compatible with any Bluetooth capable device.


A cute planner is the perfect way to stay organized and on top of all their new classes. Start them off right by adding a set of cute stationery--just make sure they schedule a trip home ASAP ;)


Fill this practical shower caddy with some sweet bath and body products to pamper your grad while they're away!


Never miss a call from mom ;) keep your phone fully charged through all those lectures and late night study dates with a portable phone charger!


Don't waste money on bottled water for that mini fridge! Filtered water is cheap and easy with a Brita pitcher. Personalize the gift by adding a cute tumbler, too.


Not all dorms will have room for a full chair, but a cute bedrest pillow and lap desk will give your student a comfortable place to work or rest.


Fill a cute bulletin board with inspirational quotes and encouraging notes for a sweet daily reminder that will keep them organized and motivated!


There will definitely be some late night cramming in your student's future, so make sure they have the proper lighting for their desk or bedside table. Add a color-changing smart bulb they can control with their phone to keep sleeping roommates happy, too!


Send them off with the comforts of home! This sweet pillow and blanket combo will be cozy and inviting after a long day of lectures.


Personalized and practical! A monogrammed weekender or tote bag is a great gift that will last for years and keep your grad organized and ready for their next adventure!


This fun hamper is a great addition to any dorm room and the side handles make it easy to drag back and forth to the laundry. Gift it with a few laundry essentials (detergent, dryer sheets, and stain remover!) for a pretty take on practical.


This closet organizer is a great solution for that cramped and crowded dorm-life. Fill it with some new collegiate gear to fuel their new team spirit!


These tidy storage cases fit neatly under any bed and are perfect for storing items that aren't needed regularly, like empty duffles and opposite season attire.


Keep your counters clutter-free and make travel a breeze with this large, double zip makeup bag. It fits a ton and is easy to tote from room to room.

Do you have a graduate to celebrate this year? Any of these picks would be a great last minute gift for anyone on your list! What would you add?

Is there any sweeter combination than stripes and bell sleeves? I just love this trendy take on a timeless classic. Sometimes a little added detail is all it takes to completely elevate your entire outfit. I'm pairing it with blush and nude for spring; this fall I'll switch to dark wash skinnies and booties. I could totally see this with a classic red peacoat for winter, too!

I have to talk about this blush tote, too! These floppy tote bags are everywhere this season, but I didn't want to splurge on such a flimsy, trendy bag. This blush beauty is from Walmart if you can believe it, and is actually reversible! This one is a combination of blush and nude beige (shown as pink/oatmeal online), but they also have pink/rose gold, black/black gingham, mint/brown, mint/multi stripe, navy/navy stripe, black/brown, grey/oatmeal, and sand/blue! For only $14, you're basically getting two bags so it's an amazing value--but I was also really surprised at the quality! It holds all of my every day junk with ease and doesn't seem to busting any seams anytime soon. I think I may have to go back and pick up that navy stripe one next!


Stripes are one of my favorite patterns! How would you style this bell sleeved beauty?

I'm so happy S P R I N G is finally here! We've been working on fixing up our lawn and landscaping, playing outside every day, and going on daily evening walks when daddy gets home! We are loving having Preston home early every night with his new job!

Now on to this outfit: Y'all know how much I love a closet staple like a chambray top, but now that spring is finally here to stay (I think), I had to add a pop of color to brighten things up! I love this pink crossbody for quickly elevating an entire outfit right as I walk out the door. Also, super happy that the weather is warm enough to break out my faux Jack's. Target doesn't sell them anymore, but I've linked an almost identical authentic pair below.


There's just nothing more spring to me than breaking out my white jeans and flip flops! What's the first thing you reach for when the weather gets warm?
