To prep for the new Toy Story movie, I am rounding up my favorite Toy Story pieces for you to shop including everything I am wearing above!
I hope ya’ll have been having a great 3 day weekend! Whether you are traveling or hitting the beach or enjoying some yummy BBQ, it’s important to not just enjoy the weekend but remember who + why this weekend is possible + that is because of the amazing men + women who fought for this country that are remembered on this Memorial Day ♥
It’s days like today that emphasize what it truly is to be an American. For citizens to put their lives on the line to protect + fight for the freedoms of Americans everywhere is what this country is all about. We fight for what is right, we stand up + protect what we have worked incredibly hard to achieve + we appreciate everything that it’s taken to get to where we are.
While I haven’t traveled all over the world or live outside the US, I couldn’t imagine living + wanting to be anywhere else other than the amazing USA. I love the ability to have the freedom to be whoever I want to be, achieve any dream I may have + to live in a country that people everywhere want to be a part of.
That brings us to today, Memorial Day. While I have never had the honor of serving our country in the armed forces, I am eternally grateful to those who have + continue to do so. The brave men, women + their families that serve this country are what makes America the strong, passionate country we love to be apart of.
No matter what side of the political aisle you are on, we all as Americans should come together to remember what makes this country truly great + how everyone in the armed forces made everything we have today possible ♥
I will forever be proud + honored to be an American ♥
Now to today’s patriotic outfit!
I recently discovered the brand Buddy Love + I am OBSESSED! Their colorful, statement making pieces are the epitome of Missy style with bright Pops Of Color, bold prints + amazing silhouettes! They have everything from cute tops to dresses to swimwear + so much more. Their pieces run true to size + are available at a bunch of my fav online boutiques like Red Dress Boutique, Mint Julep + Shoptiques.
This dress is super fun + flirty so I linked to a similar style from Buddy LoveHERE. I paired it with a dusty rose Gucci belt which has been my go-to this summer since it matches with absolutely everything. Definitely a great investment piece!
My wedges are from Red Dress Boutique + they are not just stylish but also super comfortable!!! Every summer I pretty much live in wedges + these beauties are it!
As for my bag, this one is a must have – the white ark bag is great for every summer occasion from date night, to summer weddings, to graduations + more…it fits all your essentials + looks chic with every outfit.
It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without a hot red number + when I spotted this red trench coat that in my mind doubles as a sexy dress, I was in L O V E♥ I always found trench coats sophisticated + a bit sexy…you know, like what’s on (or not on :p) underneath hehe 😉 Whether you are surprising your boo at home with a romantic meal or you are heading to a nice night out on the town, a red trench coat makes a total statement + is the perfect piece to wear thisValentine’s Day.
I am obsessed with this coat. I wore it a lot around Christmas time + then when I slipped it over a cami dress for Valentine’s Day, I realized when closed and belted it looks like a little red dress itself! Watchya think?
I went a bit overboard on the whole hearts thing – well maybe not :p
This bag was an instant must have when I spotted it on Amazon + it retails for under $30 – how cute is that?! It actually has plenty of room it you are wearing it for a night out – fits your keys, lipstick, other essentials etc. Not only is it perfect for Valentine’s Day, but it is a great bag to wear anytime to make a bold statement.
I kept my shoes simple since there was a lot going on with this outfit + I find that these Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandals match with absolutely everything + the best part? They are super comfortable!
Looking for the perfect dress to wear to holiday functions, a winter wedding or just about any special occasion? Well I am pretty sure I found it with this gem from Tadashi Shoji. This beauty comes in a variety of colors + is flattering on all body types. Next time you are on the hunt for the perfect dress…this one will be your go-to.
I find lace to be perfect for the holidays, sometimes it is nice to take a break from sequins…am I right? :p What I love about Tadashi Shoji is their feminine aesthetic with perfect fit. Every piece I have gotten from them fits me like a glove + makes me feel like an instant princess…this dress is no exception.
I paired this dress with my signature go-to black pumps + Gucci minibag (perfect to style for any occasion – whether it is a work event, date night, girl’s night etc).
I hope ya’ll are having a great weekend so far. My boo + I are relaxing after a busy week but are heading to a water park tomorrow to soak up the last few weekends of summer! I personally can’t wait!! With fall just around the corner, I am starting to think about how to transition summer pieces into my fall wardrobe, starting with my little white dresses.
This gorgeous white midi dress is from online retailer Pink Desert. It retails for under $35 and is the perfect piece to add to your wardrobe to transition from summer to fall. The lightweight material makes it great for layering + it’s length makes it great to wear to the office or for a feminine date night look.
I paired this dress with a classic pair of nude pointed toe pumps. I feel every gal should have a pair of nude pumps because they are just so chic, timeless + match with absolutely everything!
I am LOVING these chic leather cross body bag from Senreve. I discovered the brand on instagram, actually I have been discovering a lot of new brands on instagram lately hehe :p I love Senreve’s quality, price point + versatile styles that can be worn for work or play.
