Gingham and Peplum

I feel like gingham and peplum should be the name of a blog (but I’m happy with mine!). Two styles that are effortlessly classic and chic, and they are combined in this cute little top that’s under $10. It’s universally flattering and goes with everything from denim to dress pants.


My white jeans are an old navy favorite. They are part of the sculpting line, and feel so good on. I’ve linked my other white faves as well, because finding the perfect pair of jeans is a personal thing. Madewell high rise white jeans fit phenomenal, and I’ve added in another budget pair and a great option on sale at Nordstrom. My round straw shopper is my end of summer staple. I’ve been taking it everywhere – it fits everything I need, the shoulder straps are long and comfortable, plus it’s fun and unique. My bracelet is howlite, which is a calming stone that can help to relieve stress. Sign me up, right? I’ve linked two very pretty options, and even if you don’t need the stress relief (tell me your secrets), this stone makes a perfect gift.


I’ve linked this entire look below. This top is simply the cutest, and easily goes into fall with a chunky sweater or jean jacket. My sandals are still available, and they fit awesome. The stacked heel makes them comfortable and the zippered back makes them easy to get on – which you wouldn’t think from the lace up design. I’m still soaking up summer, but get ready for some fall posts!

Stripes and Tie Shoulders

I know it’s the end of summer, and most of us are focused on sweaters, jeans and boots, but I have to give this dress the attention it needs. It combines two of my all-time favorites: stripes and tie shoulders. Plus, it is the softest, most flattering dress for warm end-of-summer days and it’s currently on super sale for under $14. I love the olive + neutral stripe, but it also comes in a super classic navy + white stripe (but let’s just make note that at this price, it wouldn’t be crazy to buy both!).

These slip on canvas shoes have been my go-to lately. When I’m rushing out the door, they are magic. I love the classic canvas with frayed ends to make them casual and cute. They are under $30 plus I’ve linked the other pair I found the same day and some converse that I truly believe every woman should have in her closet. My circle straw bag goes with me everywhere. It holds so much, and looks cute with just about every summer look.

I’ve linked the dress below along with my slip on shoes and converse options. I love this round straw tote and I’ll be carrying it most of fall.

Tassel Tie Top + Floral Skirt

I’ve been obsessed with tassel tie tops lately. They have the cutest detail and adjust to fit perfectly, so they really are the perfect summer piece. This one is under $12 and currently sold out in this yellow color, but still available in white (which I am getting as well). I plan to wear it right through fall with a chunky knit.


My floral skirt is an all time favorite. It has a high slit with small, delicate buttons to the waist, but a zippered side so you don’t have to use the buttons. I’ve linked a bunch of other skirt options because there are a lot of cute ones out there, and they are a great wardrobe piece for fall. I like to pair mine with a sweater and belt + booties when it’s starts getting cooler.


Blush is still everywhere, and I found my pink satin lace up slides back in the spring. I’ve linked a similar pair of slides to pair with this skirt, or any maxi with blush tones. You can also wear pink slides with cut off denim, skinny jeans, or go fancy with a black body con dress. They are actually more of a neutral shoe even though they are pink, that work with just about any outfit and give it that “it” factor. You can go casual with this look and wear converse – a sneaker + maxi is a really cool (comfortable) look.
