Can we stop and talk about the shirt tuck for a second. To tuck or not to tuck is an almost daily question and when the answer is to tuck in well how much tuck is too much? Do you rock the one side tuck? Straight across tuck? Does anyone else tuck and re-tuck their shirt like 10 times before leaving the house, never mind the additional 10 times after you use a restroom? TMI? I know I'm all questions today but the perfectionist in me is searching for the foolproof tuck in and wondering if it really even exists. Are you tuckered out by all of my tuck in talk yet?

Thanks for reading.

Happy Hump Day! I have been loving dresses lately, I usually avoid them as I always find that I wear them once then hang them up in the back of my closet, never to be worn again. However this dress has been a game changer. Originally I got it to wear casually to the pool, for running errands, to grab coffee even but I've found I can style it for a number of different occasions including brunch with my girls (outfit 1) and even date night (outfit 2)! I love the unexpected mix of grey with cognac and felt the heather grey was just as easy to dress up with blush and florals, a win win if you ask me. If you haven't already you should definitely add a simple jersey dress to your closet.

MDW WHITE

WHITE TANK (ONLY $8!) | | WHITE DENIM c/o SHOPBOP | | GOLD SLIDES | | PURSE c/o SHOPBOP | | EARRINGS | | WATCH c/o WRISTOLOGY | | LIPS: 'CHERISH' BY REVLON COLORBURST | | NAILS: 'SNOW ME WHITE' BY SINFULCOLORS PROFESSIONAL

Happy Memorial Day! I've been on a white kick as of late and this weekend was no different. MDW served to be the perfect time to rock the white on white combo and with a blue chambray I just blamed the outfit on my patriotism. Let's be honest though white is totally approps anytime, this will definitely not be the last you see of it from me.

OLIVE GREEN CONUNDRUM


*Please excuse the wrinkles!*

So I have been wanting an olive green cargo jacket for some time now but I don't wear much green so I figured this "dress" was a good step in the right direction, and for under $20 it could warm me up to the color. I knew it would be a versatile palette, hence the reason I have been wanting an olive green jacket, but I have been pleasantly surprised by how often I reach for it. It literally goes with everything even cognac and leopard my other favorites besides black and white. However, I've gotten away with wearing this open, like a jacket, over top a tank and denim shorts so now I'm wondering whether I need the cargo jacket after all, since this is proving to have a dual purpose?! Input much appreciated!

LBD FOR SPRING


I love a LBD (little black dress) and this one is absolutely perfect for spring and summer. I'm sure you've noticed I am obsessed with off the shoulder tops and dresses but they aren't always the most practical for day to day life which is what makes this dress ideal. The cold shoulder (off the shoulder with a thin strap) allows you to have full range without having to constantly readjust. I cinched my waist with a black tie I already had to accentuate my waist for a "dressier" appearance for the evening, perfect for happy hour cocktails, however I loved it just as much during the day as more of a slouchy, oversized tee look. Shop 9 more of my favorite Spring LBDs, each under $100, below:
