DRESS: TARGET | HAT: BANANA REPUBLIC | BAG: J.CREW | SANDALS: FOREVER 21 | EARRINGS: NORDSTROM sold out, similar HERE under $50

I had another one of those days when you head to Target for paper plates and leave with a cart full of clothing. This off the shoulder maxi dress with pretty pink blossoms was one of the first things that made it into my cart. It's so soft I could sleep in it! The blue is universally flattering and the tiny pink flowers make it perfect for summer. It's also under $30 which makes it even harder to resist. The sleeves don't slip off and the smocked top of the dress is really supportive if you want to skip the bra. Also it has pockets!

Garden Party Dress

DRESS: c/o SHEIN | BAG: old, another favorite | SANDALS: VINCE CAMUTO | EARRINGS: ANN TAYLOR | NECKLACE: J.CREW FACTORY

It's garden party season and for those of us in the US, Memorial Day weekend is almost here! What are your plans and of course the big question, what're you wearing?:) I'm planning to wear lots of dresses this weekend, what a surprise haha. I've linked a few of my favorite dresses here, including a couple of super cute and affordable picks from the Nordstrom anniversary sale - see what you think!

SKIRT: ANN TAYLOR (use code MYSTERY50 for sale price)| MULES: similar HERE | CARDIGAN: similar HERE | SHIRT: LOFT similar HERE

This work outfit is part of a mini capsule. I use wardrobe capsules in a modified way and it works really well for me - particularly for my work wardrobe, where I just don't like to invest too much money. A wardrobe capsule is essentially a collection of pieces that mix and match really well together. This type of thoughtful wardrobe building creates more efficiency in your closet and makes putting together outfits much easier and faster. If you like a pared down closet and not having to think too much about creating ensembles, then a capsule wardrobe could be just right for you. To show you how it can work, I've included a second look using this skirt near the bottom of the post. These pieces also work with other pieces in the blue family, including jeans, so you can easily get a third look from these.

SKIRT:  ZARA sold out online, almost identical HERE | VEST: ABERCROMBIE and for less HERE | SANDALS: ANN TAYLOR | BAG: CULT GAIA | CAMI: old similar HERE

I wear a lot of midi skirts as you guys will know if you've been to my blog before. Sometimes I like to style them in a classic feminine way but sometimes I'm in the mood to mix it up. Mixing styles creates less predictable looks and is an opportunity to put together outfits that are uniquely you.

A BOHO LOOK: FLORAL, FRINGE AND TASSELS

A Boho Summer Look

DRESS: FOREVER 21 similar HERE and HERE | BAG: CULT GAIA | EARRINGS: similar HERE| SHOES: old, also love THESE | SUNGLASSES: BP

Major boho vibes and a small tale of make-up calamity at the end if you're interested!

This dress makes me want to jump on a plane to Cartagena but alas I'll just have to dream for now as I have no plans for travel to Europe this year. I love floral, I love red, and I love colorful maxi dresses, especially for summer. So this one is a winner on all fronts. I'm such a fan of a bold sweeping dress - utterly feminine and powerful. I've linked a few of my favorite red floral midi and maxi dresses if you share my love of this style.

DRESS: ASOS PETITE | BAG: NATASHA COUTURE | SANDALS: BP | JACKET: LOFTI can't resist a cute floral print. This high-neck midi dress is under $50 and is great for work - high neck and long sleeves help with that office air-conditioning. It also looks super cute styled casually without a belt and paired with these adorable bow slides. The background of the print being black makes it super versatile and the florals are in spring pastels - best of both worlds. All the New England cherry blossoms are putting me in a serious mood for soft pinks and purples as you probably saw on Instagram.

SNEAKERS: ADIDAS | PINEAPPLE CLUTCH: FOREVER 21 | SKIRT: OLD similar HERE | TEE: OLD similar HERE | EARRINGS: ANN TAYLOR | HAT: OLD similar HERE

I'm in major sneakers mode right now! These are one of my current favorites. Everyone needs a pair of fresh white kicks for Spring and these don't disappoint. I love this unisex pair but I also love the women's red and green accented pairs. You know I'm obsessed with green (see more green stuff in this post) so it took considerable self control to go with black/white but I wanted something super versatile and these fit the bill.
