Random roundup

Happy Friday! It's time to recap all of the outfits I wore last week! And I have a bonus outfit from Cinco de Mayo, too! Let's get started!

Jacket: Gap | Dress: Bailey 44 | Heels: Valentino Wraparound Rockstud pump (budget options here and here)

Not going to lie - it was my girl time last week, and you can usually tell that when all of a sudden I don't wear pants for about a week. So, even though there are a lot of dresses/skirts in this roundup, just know it was out of necessity and not because I was actually trying harder.

Nothing beats my Bailey 44 dresses when I need to be comfortable but don't want people to KNOW I'm trying to be comfortable. This one is one of my newest acquisitions and it's just as wonderful as my others. It's a tank style dress, hence the reason I'm wearing this lightweight jacket over it.

Top: Express (in blush) | Skirt: Express | Heels: Renvy

I was accidentally fancy this morning. I woke up having no idea what to wear, and this outfit kind of just happened. The last time I wore this skirt was in January and I styled it for cooler weather - you can see that outfit here. Flirty skirts like this always make me feel like a ballerina and I have no idea why, but I always reach for these pumps when I have that ballerina feel. No idea what the connection is, but it's a natural pairing for me.

Top: Free People | Bralette: Express | Skirt: Express | Heels: Valentino Rockstud pump

This is the same top I am wearing in Monday's post seen here. I bought it a couple of weekends ago from Evereve and I gotta say that I'm loving it. It's such an easy top to throw on, with such a great print. Both times I have worn it over a strappy bralette/cami because I like the added detail. I've worn it with black bottoms both times, but it will easily pair with all your other denim colors - white, blue, grey, olive. I'm wearing it in an extra small.

Top: American Eagle (blue stripe option here) | Necklace: Kendra Scott "Aiden" | Jeans: American Eagle | Espadrilles: Sam Edelman

I am pretty happy that I can wear whatever I want to the office. I admire all of you that have to dress business casual. The fact that I can throw on jeans and an off the shoulder top makes dressing life much easier for me in the mornings! Especially when it's rainy like it was this morning and you have zero motivation to get dressed!

(Floral) Friday
Earrings: Kendra Scott "Addie" | Necklace: Kendra Scott "Elisa" | Top: Express (option here) | Bottoms: American Eagle | Wedges: Jimmy Choo

So, it's been three Fridays now that I have officially been trying to make Floral Friday happen, and I think I *finally* had a break through! It took a bit of finagling, reminding coworkers at the end of the day Thursday to bust out their florals or Hawaiian shirts, or really anything organic (cactus counts!) But voila! I made it happen. I think that's just good project management skills right there!

Not only did they fulfill my request, they let me take photos of them, too! I swear my coworkers are good sports. The things I put them through! I justify this by the fact that I keep them stocked with candy year round. So. And no, the husband is not in this roundup. I gave him crap about that! I told him I cannot be the advocate for Floral Friday and not have my own husband partake! He brushed me off, but I think felt a bit left out when he saw the overwhelming participation. He ended up ordering 3 Hawaiian shirts on Amazon that afternoon. Ha! It's the little things that make my heart happy.

Top: The Clothes Line Boutique | Shorts: American Eagle | Sandals: Sam Edelman "Willow" (in Taupe Rose Suede)

And last but not least, this is the outfit I ended up wearing for Cinco de Mayo. We went over to a friend's house to have tacos and margaritas, so very casual. The weather was perfect for sitting outside, and I was definitely going to let my legs get some sun! Spring makes me so happy!

Linking up for:  Fashion Friday, Friday Favorites


  1. I love your new Bailey 44 dress, I still don't have one. I need to go to the mall and try on a few. All your outfits are so cute and looks comfy too. LOL at Matt for getting 3 shirts on Amazon.


  2. "Accidentally fancy." HA! Also, that's SO awesome that you're making Floral Friday happen! And that Matt is giving in to the peer pressure. Sometimes peer pressure can be a good thing. :)
