Heather grey stripe tie-front top

Hello!! Long time, no see! Two weeks seems long to be away from the blog anyway. Life has been a little bit crazy, a little bit sad, a little bit hectic, and a lot bit busy. But, enough about that. Right now I'm here to help my friends at CS Gems promote their fall releases! They've been posting teasers throughout the last couple of weeks and I can feeeeel the anticipation! And for good reason! So much good stuff, it was hard to pick what I wanted to feature! It's still summer temps here, so I wanted to pick something I could still wear now, and obviously later for fall. Cue this heather grey stripe tie-front top!

Fall basics

Happy Friday!! Today I am teaming up with Jo-Lynne and Amy Ann to share some of our favorite fall basics and co-host the Fashion Friday linkup! I realize it's still summer, but with August around the corner, that means school is starting and people have fall on the brain. It's a sad reality. I don't know about you, but I was always excited to shop for fall at the start of the new school year! So hopefully this post provides value even if you're still rocking cutoffs and bikinis for another few weeks. Let's get started!

The floral drop-waist dress

I love, love, love easy dresses like this! The print is so much fun, and it's super easy to throw on without thought. The drop-waist ruffle hem is flirty, and since the print speaks for itself, it really doesn't need much accessorizing! I can see myself turning to this as a foolproof piece for many seasons to come. And with the under $50 price point, you truly can't beat that!

Life lately

Life has been a bit hectic since we got back from vacation, hence my sporadic posting. I've still had blogging on the brain though and I've accumulated some outfit photos on my phone as a result. It's just that none of the photos alone seemed enough for a full post, so today's post is a massive dump of photos showing what I've been up to lately. Let's just get started!

St. Louis local fashion blogger

A few months ago, Spaces reached out to me letting me know they were opening in St. Louis in the central west end. They offered me one free week working in their flexible office-space environment in exchange for a review on the blog. Although I can certainly do my job remotely, being out of the office for an entire week is difficult. So, while I wasn't sure if I was going to agree to the collaboration, I still thought it was a really interesting concept and I immediately forwarded the website to the 3 co-workers on my team since this is architecture and design related after all. All of them were intrigued, so I decided to ask if Spaces would be willing to give all 4 of us access to the space for a day, and they said yes!

Disclosure: Although Spaces agreed to sponsor this post and our visit, all views expressed are my own!

White shorts: dressy to cozy

We are in the middle of summer now, and I feel like every summer I am always on the hunt for the perfect pair of white shorts. I've had pairs in several brands - Express, Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic, you name it. Grace and Lace has this pair of white shorts right now that keep going in and out of stock and the hype left me really intrigued. I was THISCLOSE to ordering them actually, but I ended up not pulling the trigger. They have a bit of a higher rise, and I find myself always HATING shorts or jeans with a higher rise. My belly is my problem area - specifically the area above my pelvis but under my belly button. For the sake of this discussion, let's call that my inner tube. 

Grace and Lace Dainty Lace Crinkle Cami

Higher rise anything seems to accentuate that part of me since most of the support ends up being above my inner tube. And think about what happens when you squeeze a balloon. The adjacent parts bulge as a result. So when my torso is being locked and loaded above my inner tube, I feel like my inner tube bulges even more! It's not good, and this has got to be creating really wonderful mental pictures in your head right now.
