On The Rack

We've officially hit Summer weather here in Texas, so the rack has been updated with some of my favorite breezy tops and dresses, all flattering and cover your hiney guaranteed.

These will all be mixed, matched, and rotated heavily over the next few weeks, so let me tell you all about them!

First up is pants. My favorite distressed denim from Target and white capris from Old Navy are my go-to's. Even when it's in the 90's, pants don't seem to bother me much if they're paired with a lightweight top and lots of AC (which we have plenty of down here).

The tunic I scooped up during Anthropologie's 20% off sale (along with the hat) is fantastic with white pants and is also a great swimsuit cover up. I really like lounging in that on the patio while I drink my coffee before the babe wakes up. 

The chambray shirt from Target is flat out, the softest shirt I've ever owned. It's amazingly soft (especially for chambray) and again, with white pants, it's an easy outfit to pull together. 

As for the dresses, the navy and white is from a local boutique and I really love how it can be dressed up with wedge heels or down with flat sandals. The Anthropologie dress is a Rifle Paper Co x Paper Crowns collab and it's heaven. It was a serious splurge (I try not to spend lots on clothes and more on purses, shoes, etc that will fit no matter my size) but I'm glad I pulled the trigger. I'll be wearing this to my sister's bridal shower in July as well as a wedding the weekend after. It's flattering, flawy, and floral. Three good f words. The exact version I have is sold out, so I linked a similar style in the same pattern!

The navy jersey dress from Old Navy is something you need to run out and buy. Now. It's a great quality, heavy jersey fabric and will flatter everyone. You can have a food baby or real baby bump going on under that thing and no one would know. The twirl factor (important in our house currently) is awesome and this is another one you can easily dress up or down with accessories. It comes in red and black too, so grab one of those coupon codes that's constantly floating around retailmenot.com and snag one. I just ordered the red.

The maxi is a Nordstrom rack find which ironically, really enhances my, ahem, girls. What I have anyway. Which is virtually nothing. Why my weight gain must all go to my stomach instead of my boobs is just a cruel injustice. You know I love a maxi dress for any day or occasion and I'll never have too many.

As for accessories, a great big blush tote also from Old Navy is matching just about every outfit these days as well as storing the unbelievable amount of junk I carry around. The Anthropologie hat works wonders on those extra humid days when my hair just rolls over and plays dead.

So should you run into me this weekend while I'm slurping iced coffee and chasing Olivia around (hopefully she's clothed this time), I can guarantee I'll be wearing at least one of these items. Hope you have an awesome weekend!


  1. Love this! Sometimes those splurge dresses are exactly what the doctor orders- a little more than normal pep in your step. Try to beat the heat! I just moved back to TX... and the humidity and heat is BRUTAL

  2. I have a very similar tote in blush from Nordstrom, and am LOVING carrying it. It goes with literally everything. Why I don't have more blush in my closet, I don't know. It needs to be remedied asap. Loving all of your picks, and am definitely going to look into that Old Navy dress since I have super cash that needs to be spent there this weekend;)

  3. I am wearing maxis as much as possible these days! I totally wish I could pull off white pants but I find they show my every flaw!

  4. Love all of these Summer staples! The Rifle Paper Co. clothing line is nothing short of perfection and I've been eyeing practically every dress from Old Navy this season!

  5. I need a clothes rack!! I love the look & makes it easier to see my favorite clothes :) and that anthro dress- ahh!! love it! I'm sad I missed the sale
