June 2017

seeing stripes

Friends! How is June almost over?! I feel like this year is just flying by, dontcha think?! With July just a few sunrises away, it’s time to put together our outfits for the 4th! I love how festive everyone gets for this holiday, finding outfit inso has been so fun! I’m going to be on the Coast over the weekend (thankfully escaping the heat!), so this 3/4 length striped tee will be perfect. It’s such a classic cut, and I love the nautical and timeless look of the stripes! You can also grab it in pink and navy, and for less than $20. Yes friend, major sale. For a super casual look (that’s usually the way I roll if you haven’t noticed), I paired it with the easiest white cutoffs. We won’t be doing a whole lot during the day, just laying low, so I didn’t want to get too fancied up. Since the temps drop so low at night, I’ll probably be reaching for my denim jacket, and possibly swapping shorts out for some white skinnies. I really love how preppy this look is. When I tied in the white converse, I literally just imagined myself in Nantucket or some glamorous […]

Shake Your Pom-Pom

Hey there pretty frands! I know it’s Monday, but today’s post is featuring an outfit too cute to not brighten your day! Remember that Ricky Martin song, “Shake Your Bon-Bon”? If you don’t please peep the music video. Trust, it’s golden. Anyways, I’d like to make a slight modification to that song to honor today’s post, Shake Your Pom-Pom. I am more than down with this year’s pom-pom obsession (how could you not be?!), so when I saw this matching set I seriously went week in the knees! Fabric-wise, this stuff is linen-like and very light. It’s lined, too, so don’t worry about any unsightly undergarments peeking through. I love the top, the embroidery is beautiful and so festive, and the off the shoulder makes it perfect for working on your tan with a drink in hand! The top of this set is definitely a crop, no doubt about it. So I’d really only wear this with something high-waisted (totally just me though!). Well good news! The pom-pom trim shorts that come with this set are high waisted and built only to show a little skin. The shorts are a great length, not too short, not too long, and come with pockets! […]

prettiest pink top

Raise your hand if you’re a sucker for pink? And ruffles? *Me raising my hand in the hopes that you are too* Glad we’re on the same page! When it comes to pink and ruffles, this girl has ZERO self control. None. Add on a less-than-$20 price tag and there is simply no hope for me! This little beauty is pink, has ruffles, off the shoulder, and is a bargain! It is literally every gal’s dream in a top! I’ve seen it on tons of people, and while I was at first skeptical because of the retailer, I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised! (See my other post on the dress-form of this top here) While the quality of the top isn’t the best I’ve ever seen, it gets the job done. Definitely a $15 quality top, you get what you pay for. But I’m feelin’ it, friends. From date night to wine tasting to brunch, this top hits the mark on all things darling and summery! It’s so versatile, I’ve paired it with every type and color of denim (check it out on my Instagram, @madeinmissouri), and have loved every single look. I love how feminine the look of […]

summer chiffon shift dress

Hey friends, happy Monday! I don’t know about where you’re at, but here in Napa it is SWELTERING! It’s like out of nowhere these temps just spiked up and here we are in triple digits! So I feel that it’s fitting that I share a look today that will help you beat the heat! Remember that jumpsuit I posted on here a while ago? That same brand, Cupcakes & Cashmere, is back on the blog today and I couldn’t be more excited! I actually first saw this dress on Amanda from and knew I had to have it! It’s a chiffon shift dress, so it’s very light and airy. When these summer days vamp up, I can’t be bothered with anything tight, it’s so uncomfortable for me. I need everything really loose and light so that I can breathe even in 100 degree heat. I love the bright teal of this dress, you don’t see this color around very much, it’s such a fun summer statement! It also comes in white, perfect for backyard barbecues or even a wedding shower! A note on the fit: it’s definitely on the longer side, so all you tall gals, stock up! To […]

Madewell embroidered top

Friends, I am so on board with the embroidery trend this year! It adds so much color and life to any piece, but nothing too over the top. When I saw this beautiful embroidered top from one of my favorite retailers, I just knew I needed it! It’s subtle, but the gorgeous red takes this top to a whole new level, so fun and festive! I love the cut of this top, it’s great untucked, or with the classic front tuck. And how cute is the hem?! It’s the simple details like that or the fun little tassels on the neck that make an easy throw-on-and-go shirt like this into an effortlessly chic look! The material of this blouse is like a linen, it’s very light and airy, nothing too heavy. I’ve found it a bit of a struggle finding cute tops that won’t absolutely suffocate me during these steamy summer months. This, on the other hand, is the opposite! Very breezy and a green light for summery afternoons! I’ve paired it here with some of my favorite cutoffs, but for a dressier look I’d slip into some white skinnies and wedges. I’m all about pieces that can easily be taken from […]
