Everything about this look just screams summer to me. Coral crochet shorts are so easy when paired with a crisp white blouse and studded gladiator sandals. Take the look up a level by adding an eye-catching dose of turquoise and an animal-print clutch. Finish with oversized cat-eye shades and touches of gold. Hope everyone has an amazing weekend! Happy Friday! xoxo P.S. - Don't forget to enter the Subtle Luxury Summer Giveaway!

Not that I'm looking or anything, but if, let's say, someone
would be looking for a sweet new LBD, this one just might be it. I love the simplicity of the shift silhouette paired with the snake-printed faux leather, and there are probably a million ways to work this into your wardrobe. Booties and a jacket for fall? I think yes. But for now, It's so chic paired with pointed and ankle-strapped heels, tribal-inspired accents, and flashes of gold. Officially adding everything here to my summer wishlist, and I must admit, it's getting long. xoxo P.S. - Don't forget to enter the Subtle Luxury Summer Giveaway!

Lately I've been loving chambray button-downs for easy weekend wear (like this one
and that one
), and I'm thinking this sleeveless version from Madewell is next on my list. When paired with a loose-fitting pair of shorts, there's nothing more carefree and Saturday-appropriate. Dress the look up with a heeled sandal and statement gold jewelry, and finish with retro-inspired shades (Warby Parker's
tortoise sunnies are a current obsession) and a luxe leather crossbody. Happy weekend, y'all! xoxo

In today's final installment of "amazing things I've found at T.J. Maxx", we're talking spring prints, and I'm in love. I spotted this softer-than-butter silk floral blouse back during week 1
of this campaign, and I knew that I had to work it into one of the spring trends. (What can I say, when a shirt is talking to you from five racks away, you listen.) It's one of those classic, versatile pieces that can be dressed up or down (like in the look above), and at over sixty percent off of the original price, it was a pretty sweet deal. Paired with distressed cutoffs and easy sandals (both from favorite brand names), this blouse is one of those timeless investments that just so happens to be in an of-the-moment floral print.
For this week's second look (or first, I guess), I was definitely drawn to these wide leg chambray jeans by a favorite denim designer. (Actually, my first pair from the brand as they were a sweet seventy percent off of the original price.) They feel amazing on, and the lighter wash is perfect for spring and summer. Sleeveless white blouses have become a sort of collector's item for me, and I fell in love with the fit of this candy-colored striped blazer, which is rare. Both looks paired perfectly with the straw clutch, probably one of the best deals that I've found. I'm sad to see this campaign end, but I hope you guys have enjoyed checking out some of my amazing finds from T.J. Maxx.

For me, spring just wouldn't be spring without a well-stocked supply of comfy, cozy, so soft you could sleep in them t-shirt dresses. In luxe jersey fabrics, a good t-shirt dress so easily makes the transition from beach coverup to the perfect daytime mini and beyond. While my favorites are definitely from Riller & Fount
, I'm loving this simple pocketed version above paired with strappy gladiator sandals. Add interest with a paradise-printed clutch, marbled sunnies and an ultra-soft scarf, and finish the look with classic silver jewels. xoxo

I'm sure most of us can remember that certain item of clothing from childhood that was an absolute favorite. It was the dress you wanted to wear everyday, the shoes you crammed your feet into after they were too small, or the dance leotard that I may or may not have been allowed to sleep in after a recital. The printed dress in today's post is probably my slightly grown-up version of that favorite piece. Lightweight and oh-so-comfortable, I picked up the summer staple for under $20 a few years ago at Forever 21 and have loved it ever since. Paired with easy nude sandals (a recent find at T.J. Maxx), a bold clutch and stacked bangles, it is a warm weather no-brainer. Classic aviators and a very Carrie Bradshaw-esque nameplate necklace (love this petite version from Jane Basch
) add the finishing touches. Because sometimes you just want to throw on an oldie but goodie. Hope everyone is having a great week! xoxo
Lately I'm really drawn to the laidback look of boyfriend jeans, and I've been kicking myself for getting rid of a couple great pairs a few seasons back. While I love the easy styling of pairing the relaxed denim with a basic tee and gladiator sandals, distressed boyfriend jeans are equally chic when dressed up with a striped blazer and eye-catching heels. Finish with a bold handbag, mirrored aviators and a few simple pieces of jewelry. How would you style boyfriend jeans for spring?

Add a little tropical pep in your step by incorporating fun island prints into your spring wardrobe. These tropical scalloped shorts are so chic paired with a luxe tee, and the draped back of this one by OAK is summer perfection. Finish the look with easy gladiators, stacked gold jewelry, retro shades and a standout, contract clutch. Hope everyone has an amazing weekend!

My Style Diaries was started with one thing in mind: your wardrobe. And shoes. And jewelry. Lots of jewelry. OK, so that's three things. And it was only a matter of time before it branched out to cover complete style, including a huge part of your (and my) personal style: beauty. I'm excited to start a new series on the blog to chat about beauty products that I'm currently loving, using, or lusting after, appropriately named Beauty Talk. With summer weighing heavy on the brain, there's no better beauty product binge to start out with than the ever-elusive beach waves. You know you've drooled over the pictures. That model off duty (ahem, Gisele) or beach-loving babe and her lust-worthy, looks-so-easy beach waves. I'm lucky enough to live by the beach, and I love the soft waves I get after a day spent in the salt air. Wanting to recreate the look, I've tried just about every pre-packaged "ocean spray" I can get my hands on, and above are a few favorites that have stood the test of time. (Bonus: They're also perfect for spritzing while you're at the beach.)
Bumble and Bumble's Surf Spray is pretty much the holy grail. Perfect for beginners (or my fine hair), a few spritzes go a long way, and the smell is amazing. The Kevin.Murphy version is a bit pricy, but it leaves me with nice, conditioned waves. (A problem with ocean or salt sprays is the dryness that ensues. A little leave-in conditioner or dry oil spray usually helps.) The third, a spray by Wella, is a bit on the lighter side, and I've found that it's pretty easy not to overdo it. I usually spritz one of these when my hair is just about dry, and pulling my hair into a loose pony with a wide elastic (like the Emi-Jay ties above) can help to tame my frizz without leaving deep ponytail lines. If you're looking for an easy way to achieve those model-esque beach waves, I'd definitely recommend these, but I'm interested to know: what's your favorite way to create beach waves?
I've proclaimed my love of the little black dress since the birth of the blog, but it's the little white dress that's been seriously growing on me lately. Although I'm not usually a huge fan of linen (the wrinkles drive me nuts), this little drop-waist number is such an amazingly versatile piece for spring. Whether you dress it up with sky-high platforms like the blush pair above or go casual with low-key gladiators, you really can't go wrong. Finish with a few strategic pieces of gold, retro shades and one seriously adorable clutch. Hope everyone is having a great week!
