With the temperature slowly rising I cannot help but get giddy over spring and summer garments. Just this morning I tried to walk out of the house in a backless t-shirt only to have to turn around and throw on a sweater because it was slightly more breezy than I had anticipated. However, there is a perfect combination for these not quite hot, not quite cool days; a light dress and a long cardigan.

Isn’t this necklace so cute? I love how delicate it is. When my cousin and I were in Florida she took me to this store that was packed from wall to wall with delicate little pieces like this or bold statement accessories. They pretty much had anything you could think of, and the best part, almost nothing was above $20. (This necklace was only $12…. for real). I can’t remember the exact name of the place, but it’s in Naples… if you’re ever in that area, haha!
When I think of slip dresses it only feels appropriate to pair them with a slinky little bralette. Slip dresses tend to be a little looser and a bralette is often times supposed to be seen, so they pair perfectly together. I love this dress from Pink Blush; it is so sweet and feminine! I felt very cozy with this light dress wrapped up in my long knit cardi. Although… as much as I love my layers, I am SO looking forward to shedding a few this summer and wearing this dress with nothing over it. Who’s with me?
I’ve said it a million times, the chambray shirt is and always will be a wardrobe staple! If you don’t have one, invest in one now. It can be worn throughout every season in a handful of different ways. One of my favorite ways to wear this shirt on cooler days is tucked into a great pair of white denim pants with a fab pair of shoes.

I am truly going to miss my summer wardrobe (not the heat or humidity, mind you) but definitely the wardrobe! I love just waking up in the morning and throwing on an easy sun dress and heading out for the day, however, it’s almost too easy. There is a certain excitement that comes with fall fashion, isn’t there? So many fun ways to dress up and play with your wardrobe and a lot of fantastic ways to incorporate summer pieces in there, like I did with these white jeans.
A cool chambray shirt is so versatile! See a few other ways I styled chambray here and here. Side note, the chambray tunic I had from A Pea in the Pod was one of my favorite maternity pieces, ever! It was the most comfortable top I owned at the time, so if you’re a mommy-to-be, definitely pick one of those bad boys up, you will love it!
With your shoes, you pervs! Gosh! ;] There are just so many pro’s to wearing nude heels, and if you haven’t heard them all by now I just don’t know where you’ve been the past 3 years. I mostly love how they flatter and elongate your legs. And they really do go with just about everything. Win.

The light colors of this dress scream summer but the heaviness of the cotton make this garment perfect for cooler nights. Plus it has pockets! Who doesn’t love a dress or skirt with pockets? I wore it for a friend’s birthday dinner. When he invited us over I had the picture of a dinner party in my mind, who knows why, but I was definitely not picturing an outdoor summer BBQ… needless to say I was a tad over dressed, but who cares? Better to be over dressed than under, as they say!
I’ll probably throw this dress into the usual rotation now. It was a fantastic find at the Gap! I always forget about that store but I’ve been stopping in there a lot lately to find dresses for my girls. They’ve got some fabulous pieces right now and the most amazing sale! I got a gorgeous white cotton sweater for the fall on sale for $4….no joke. Can’t wait to wear it!
The weather in New Jersey has been so back and forth recently. One day it’s nearly 70 degrees and I’m in a dress and sandals, the next it’s 40 and cloudy and I don’t want to leave the house. On those nicer days, I can’t wait to pack up my little one and enjoy the warm weather outdoors somewhere while it’s here!

The ‘Michael Jackson’ jacket is really growing on me, ha. It is proving to be an excellent jacket for spring! It’s heavy enough to keep me warm when I’m not wearing a ton of other layers, but it’s light enough to not overwhelm me when the sun is burning bright! I’m also thoroughly enjoying this skirt from ASOS! I love that it’s not tight, but full and feminine. Just be careful wearing a skirt like this on a windy day… I had quite a few unwelcome Marilyn Monroe moments!
Isn’t my boog such a little cutie? We were really embracing the wind on this day, hah! One of those days when you just give up on trying to keep your hair looking well kept at all, it’s just not even worth it! ALSO! My Pink Blush Maternity giveaway ended yesterday, and although she’s already been contacted I wanted to publicly congratulate my winner, Jennie! I hope you enjoy your gift card and your fabulous new purchase! Thanks so much to everyone who entered!!
