Outfit

Crop top // Crop trousers // Satin maxi skirt // Loci sneakers // Chanel Quilted bag // Less pricy version here

Look 1: Crop Structured Top and Cropped Trousers

So, for the first look, you’ve got that amazing crop structured top paired with cropped trousers. The fabric seems to have a great weight to it, giving the outfit a nice, tailored feel. This combo is super chic and sophisticated. I can see this being perfect for a variety of occasions—maybe a nice brunch or even a casual work setting. Depending on how you accessorize, it can easily go from day to night. I bet it looks fabulous with both heels and flats.

Look 2: Crop Structured Top with Satin Maxi Skirt and Sneakers

Now, for the second look, you kept the same crop top but swapped the trousers for a satin maxi skirt. The satin adds such a lovely touch of elegance, and pairing it with comfy sneakers? Genius! This outfit feels very trendy and modern. It’s like you’re ready for anything—from a casual day out to an evening event. The mix of the dressy skirt with casual sneakers gives off a cool, effortless vibe. Plus, it must be super comfortable to wear!

Which Look is My Favorite?

If I had to pick a favorite, I think I’m leaning towards Look 2. There’s something about the combination of the satin skirt and sneakers that’s just so fresh and stylish. It’s elegant without being too formal, and the sneakers keep it grounded and practical. This look feels like it has a bit more personality and could really make you stand out.

That said, both outfits are my favorite, and the best part is how they can suit different moods and occasions. Look 1 is perfect when you want to be polished and put-together, while Look 2 is great for when you want to mix things up and have some fun with your style.

So, which one do you feel best in? Are you more into the chic, tailored vibe of Look 1 or the elegant yet laid-back feel of Look 2?

Can you believe it is almost the weekend?

I rocked those uber comfy silver Galito and Tan Sugarbird shoes on my day date with Atalie this past weekend, and it was a blast! We hit up Urth cafe for drinks and dessert with my oldest, and let me tell you, it couldn’t have been a prettier day.

As Easter approaches, it’s time to start thinking about that perfect outfit to celebrate the occasion. Whether you’re attending church, a family gathering, or a festive brunch, finding the right Easter dress can set the tone for a memorable day. With so many styles, colors, and options available, it can be overwhelming to choose. But fear not! This guide will walk you through what to look for in an Easter dress to ensure you shine brightly on this special day.

  1. Color Palette:
  • Easter is synonymous with pastel colors, symbolizing the freshness and vibrancy of spring. Think soft pinks, baby blues, mint greens, and sunny yellows. These hues complement the season and add a touch of elegance to your ensemble. However, if pastels aren’t your style, don’t hesitate to opt for bolder shades like coral, lavender, or teal, as long as they evoke the spirit of renewal and joy.
  1. Fabric Selection:
  • Choosing the right fabric is crucial for both comfort and style. Light, breathable fabrics such as cotton, linen, chiffon, or silk are ideal for warmer weather and exude an air of gracefulness. Look for dresses with lining to prevent sheerness and ensure a smooth silhouette. Additionally, consider the texture of the fabric – delicate lace, subtle embroidery, or gentle ruffles can add whimsy and charm to your Easter look.
  1. Length and Silhouette:
  • The length and silhouette of your Easter dress should align with your personal style and the formality of the occasion. Opt for knee-length or midi dresses for a classic and sophisticated look suitable for church services or family gatherings. If you prefer a more relaxed vibe, a maxi dress with a flowy skirt can offer comfort and elegance. Pay attention to the neckline as well – whether you prefer a modest high neck, a playful sweetheart neckline, or a trendy off-the-shoulder style, choose what makes you feel confident and beautiful.
  1. Details and Embellishments:
  • It’s the little details that can elevate a simple dress to a standout ensemble. Look for dresses adorned with intricate embroidery, delicate lace overlays, or subtle embellishments like pearls or sequins. These embellishments can add dimension and visual interest to your outfit without overwhelming the overall look. Additionally, consider dresses with interesting back details, such as keyhole cutouts or bows, for a touch of unexpected charm.
  1. Versatility:
  • While it’s essential to find a dress that’s perfect for Easter festivities, why not choose one that can be versatile enough for other occasions as well? Select a dress that can easily transition from day to night by swapping out accessories or layering with a jacket or cardigan. Investing in a dress that you can wear beyond Easter ensures that you’ll get more mileage out of your purchase and makes it a practical addition to your wardrobe.
  1. Comfort and Fit:
  • Last but certainly not least, prioritize comfort and fit when choosing your Easter dress. Ensure that the dress fits you well in all the right places, accentuating your curves while allowing for ease of movement. Pay attention to sizing charts and measurements, as different brands may have varying size standards. Remember, when you feel comfortable in what you’re wearing, your confidence will shine through, making you the belle of the Easter ball!

In conclusion, finding the perfect Easter dress is all about striking the right balance between style, comfort, and personal expression. By considering factors such as color palette, fabric selection, length and silhouette, details and embellishments, versatility, and comfort and fit, you can confidently select a dress that reflects your unique taste and celebrates the joyous spirit of Easter. So go ahead, embrace the season’s festivities in style, and let your Easter dress be a reflection of your radiant spirit!

Its feeling like spring in Georgia and the birds are chirping! I love that the weather is warming up. Thankfully, my parents are in town and staying with our kids and Lucca while we go to Los Angeles for work. I can’t wait for an In-n-out burger!

Strawberry Sparkle deodorant (no aluminum) // Blue raspberry deodorant // Melon punch deodorant

Reid and I have been looking at old pictures going down memory lane. We are shocked how fast our kids have grown! Where does time go? As I write, we have two teens in our house who happen to be obsessed with skincare. We’ve had some hilarious conversations about body odor, awkward situations and the best deodorants. It should be noted that my girls are super picky about their deodorant, both for its smell and appearance. This one in strawberry sparkle is their favorite hands down and available at target. Let me know what you think!

What’s better than love month in the middle of the winter? I love the heart shaped pancakes, Sugarfina treats and yes, a cozy “love” sweatshirt. While I’m the first to admit that I haven’t mastered the art of heart shaped pancakes, I am very good at styling the best pieces from Talbots (which are 25% off today!) like this green army jacket and Chanel like flats. How cute right?

No one does luxe layers like Varley. I’ve been wearing Varley for a couple years, and have always loved their workout looks from chic sports bras, to incredibly chic fleeces. They continue to innovate luxury layers that I cannot seem to live without. As we’re in between houses, I made sure to include my favorite Varley track pants and coordinating zip ups in my “only the essentials” duffle. I’ve been living in their joggers and zip ups here in Florida. Afterall, cozy clothes don’t have to be frumpy. Move over crop leggings, meet the joggers, knit zip up and jacket of dreams. Tell me your favorites and shop them all below.

I turn 40 and I still can’t believe it! There’s a lot of trial and error that Reid and I have been though. I rounded up some things I’ve learned over the years.

Don’t take things too personally

Use face tape (shalice25 for 25% off at checkout!)

Do the research

Be kind

Work hard

Your husband is your partner in life. Picture both of you in a potato sack, trying to win a potato sack race. You gotta work together.

Take care of yourself: drink daily, eat well, sleep enough

Don’t confuse care with control.

You don’t owe anyone anything.

Serve God first.

Don’t people please, it isn’t genuine.

Wear arch support shoes daily. (these use code shalice10 and these for home are faves)

Listen to life giving words and give life giving words. It’s healthy.

You don’t have to have it all figured out. Take one day at a time.

Have a lovely weekend!
