For the love of…a maxi!


This past weekend my hubs and I had a fun romantic staycation in Bellevue.  We stayed and the new gorgeous W Hotel Bellevue, did a little shopping at the Bellevue Collection, and had a FABULOUS dinner at The Lakehouse Bellevue.

I had seen this darling wall on Instagram (of course) so we walked around the block and voila!! there it was!  It is the perfect backdrop to showcase my LOVE for this Love Stitch Maxi!


If you need one summer dress, this is the ONE!!  I love wearing it with a cute sports bra or bralette, because it’s a little too low-cut for my liking…and paired with a denim jacket and sandals…so cute!


I also think this dress could easily take you into Fall.  Throw on a cute low bootie, knot the bottom of the dress, add a tee underneath and a moto jacket…done!




I’ve linked it for you HERE, and below.  I found the best price at Nordstrom Rack.  Just for reference, I am wearing a S/M and there is PLENTY of room!  I have the military and the denim colors in my cart!  Also, I found some cute sport bra options HERE.

Peace out to a wonderful weekend!



A Day at the Market (…I wish!)

I hit a little milestone on my lil ‘ol instagram account….this picture got the most likes EVER from any of my 1955 photos!!  What???



Is it the french market basket? Or maybe my new favorite culottes?? It could just be that this is a classic and simple look…whatever it was…thank you!!

I really love the return of the culotte.  I love a wide leg and a crop flare, so this is the best of both!  One thing to keep in mind when wearing them is to keep your top simple.  A classic button up or a simple tee and fitted jacket are perfect…nothing flowy to distract from the legs.

I have worn these with Converse and a tee for a casual look, I took this look to work (or the “wish I was at the market in Paris”), or with a fun heel to dress them up!

You can find my pair here, and I’ve found a couple others that I love…especially the denim ones!







So what about you, are you a fan of the culotte or am I in a club by myself?
