If a dress, top, pants, or jacket has some stretch to it, I’m all about it. In every day life with work & family, I don’t have the patience to feel constricted in my clothing, especially in summer. A smocked bust or detail in a dress makes all the difference, especially for curvier women.
I love the pop of color in the turquoise & the chic simplicity of the leopard print. I’m torn about which one to wear to my daughter’s preschool graduation, but I know I’ll get a lot of stylish use out of both this season. Not to mention, good on Target for not only the style variety, but also the vast size range for a classic summer dress!
As I continue to expand my sleepwear & loungewear wardrobe, I love finding pieces that seamlessly work for both parts of my life. When it comes to linen, I even hope that a piece will coordinate for an office summer look. As much as I do rely on neutrals for this time of year to offset with a pop of color, I’m also very much into pink bottoms!
Recently, I bought the pink pair on a whim without a sale & I’m so glad I did. the only thing to consider with these pants is that the linen is very lightweight & you should wear flesh-tone underwear to avoid any see-through moments. Currently, I have ordered the blue pair as well.
Cute tops are everywhere this summer! The cuts, fabrics, & prints are more interchangeable than ever when it comes to styling & getting the most out of your wardrobe. Specifically, Free Assembly‘s summer line at Walmart is turning up the volume with a flattering top in a can’t-miss variety.
I love the idea of this top with denim cut-off, linen shorts, satin joggers, or ankle pants, topped off with a denim jacket, woven bolero, or athleisure jacket. For summer, I love the mixed floral print, but the blue stripes reminds me of the freshness of seersucker this season.
Prairiecore style continues to dominate the summer with peasant tops & skirts, linen & wide leg separates, & sundresses galore. In some cases, it may be difficult to incorporate these pieces into a work look. However, this newest Time & Tru find is not only the dress of the summer, but full of styling possibilities for any time of year!
As pictured, the dress can be worn with boots of any variety, but can also coordinate with a woven belt & long cardigan, a printed blazer & ballet flats, & more! The washed denim options are especially on trend if you’re loving all the of the chambray looks on social media.
One of my favorite buy-one-in-every-color finds has expanded with another variety. This time, a blouse with so much styling potential, is available in black & ivory to pair seamlessly with so many different bottoms, but also a printed blazer, denim jacket, flyaway cardigan, & embellished bolero.
In the article written by Abby Aguirre, there’s much discussion over Margot’s own Barbie memories, preparing for the iconic role, the highs & lows of producing the film, costume designer Jacqueline Durran’s Barbie vision, & much more!
I’m making a promise to wear as many skirts as I can this summer, especially since I’ve been guilty of neglecting them. However, to do that, I need to ensure that I have the right tops to wear since I’m considering these skirts for my daily summer classes, starting on Wednesday. It’s just my luck that New York & Company had these:
The Cannes Film Festival is halfway over, but glamour is in full force as more stars hit the red carpet in chic daywear, elegant gowns, & sultry designs. Some of my current favorites include the ongoing Chanel love-fest on Brie Larson, but also the utterly timeless drama of Julia Garner’s green Gucci for the premiere of Asteroid City, as well as everything on model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Take a look at the gallery below for more stylish highlights!
If coastal grandmother is still a trend this summer—it is, right?—then these are the ballet flats to amplify that look with style! Neutral shades in shoes with basket weave detailing has been common for the warmer months, especially when paired with a linen pant & flowy button-down. Try either of these options for a fun & textured twist on summer footwear for either the office, vacation, or heading to a family party.
Matching sets are one of the major trends over the last year or so & they’re not going away this summer. Nor should they! When it comes to the ease of getting ready for a fun day or heading into the office, donning a matching set is a no-brainer, especially when they come in vibrant colors, sleek neutrals, or playful patterns. Additionally, a set can be broken up & worn with other wardrobe staples, such as a band t-shirt or solid tank, denim shorts or joggers, or a cuffed blazer or flyaway cardigan.
I love a bow detail—no matter if it is on jewelry, shoes, or a dress. However, when I’m looking to put together a casual, but stylish outfit, I don’t always think about bows. It’s easy to throw together a top & shorts or tank & jeans when heading out & about with the kids. Now, it can be an even more fashionable experience with these new must-have summer picks!
One of the chicest ways to stay both cool & stylish as the temperatures rise is by wearing linen. I’ve always been weary about linen, due to caring for the wrinkles & washing to ensure that it doesn’t shrink, but in recent years, I’ve been a fan of linen shorts with tanks & tees of all varieties. However, I’m in love with these linen pants, which can be dressed up or down & still keep you cool.
The must-have markdown of the season is here! I love a pullover that can go from dressy to casual with the switch out of jeans & sneakers to faux leather leggings & a statement necklace. This is especially the case for a top with statement sleeves that’s worth it to have in every color!
Originally, I ordered the white because the item is referred to as a sweatshirt; however, this is a thin, stretchy pullover material & it was very sheer. Not wanting to layer, I’m returning it, but very much looking forward to the navy & magenta options. The price is just too good to be true & I wish my size was available in more colors. I guess that’s just how it goes with end of the season clearance items!
Now that spring has sprung & 2 local trips are planned between now & early June, it’s time I start looking ahead to summer—in style! While linen does wrinkle & require care when washing, it is a breathable, comfortable, & classic material for a dress. Even better, a flattering & inclusive dress that can be styled up or worn casually.
My favorite is the green, but I did recently get the green eyelet dress I posted about back in February, so I think the blue (navy) will be a formidable option. I do wish there was a thicker strap, but the puckering across the waist is so flattering.
It’s taken me a while to hop aboard the puff sleeve trend train, but as these gorgeous spring styles are rolling into my ‘Gram (@styledarlingdaily), I can’t help but think about all of the styling options!
I’m nuts for the minty ‘agave’ top, especially with tropical linen shorts & neutral mules for vacation, windowpane trousers & block heels for work, a pleated midi skirt & ballet flats for a family party, or jeans & sneakers on the weekends.
Let’s all give it up for the one & only Sofia Vergara who got denim joggers right! The actress-turned-fashionista has nailed it when it comes to a combination of comfortable, stylish, & affordable pull- on jeans with a joggers twist. I can’t wait to wear them all the time, especially since I haven’t worn jeans since before my pregnancy in 2018 started to show!
At the recommendation of another blogger, I ordered these in the lightest Bel Air wash, only because the darker Oceana wash was sold out in my size; however, now that I’m in love with his comfortable & trendy these are, I’ve already ordered the Trinity wash before it’s too late!
With all of the great end-of-the-season sales, I’m reveling in the final days of luxe, winter textures & deep, rich colors. Velvet has had a resurgence in all forms, especially when it comes to pieces that can work for both loungewear & work.
Try pairing this with plaid pants, faux leather leggings, dark denim jeans, wide-leg satin pants, or joggers. Also, the neckline is perfect for layered necklaces or a bold statement piece. I wish this too was available in other colors, but I guess that’s what happens when it comes to final sale items.
As the barrage of end-of-winter sales are coming to a close soon, it’s time to stock up on next season’s essentials. No matter how many time I examine & reorganize my bursting sweaters shelves, I can’t help but notice what colors & styles are missing. Suddenly, inspiration strikes & I click add-to-cart!
I have the burgundy sweater, which I’m excited to wear with plaid pants & a statement necklace for a work day. The weight of the sweater is just right & I’m thinking about adding the white & gold since they’re such a great price right now!
On a recent quick trip to Walmart, I took a stroll down the clearance-lined shoe aisle, & came across these dramatic knotted flats, perfect when needing a classic black option with a little extra flair—for only $7!
I love a flowy top with feminine details, especially when it comes in multiple colors. I’m gearing up for spring & taking the time to reconsider my warm-weather casual wardrobe & this top just happens to come across my social media feed:
I’ve purchased all 4 colors & tried them on; however, I’m not sold on them just yet, as they’re living in my “return” tote bag. They seem to look great on everyone on LTK, but I have some hesitations for my XL frame. Maybe I just need to style them up. We’ll see… All & all, Time & Tru is doing s fabulously fashionable job at encouraging this cool-girl spring—& summer—we’re all about to have!
Since my work week includes 2 night at my second job, I sometimes have the opportunity to change outfits from the typical gussied-up classroom look to something more laid back, but still fashionable. This usually entails—at least at this time of the year—a cozy pullover sweater & a big earring or necklace that might otherwise be too “extra” for the day. I’ve had my eye on several “big” earrings lately & can’t wait to hop on board this next bright beadwork accessories trend:
Target’s A New Day brand has done it again! They’re on the pulse of spring-summer with flattering, inclusive must-haves that make me want to book a vacation now & purchase a whole new wardrobe for it. When it comes to the warmer seasons & feminine frocks, you just can’t go wrong with eyelet!
