You know how I said last week I didn’t have any cold shoulder items.  Well as of this week this item #3!  Do you ever find yourself not sure about a trend, and then decide you love it and buy everything that you can? Well, that is me and I find myself doing it all the time!  I’ve decided that summer cold shoulder tops are now my favorite thing!  I am still not sure about wearing them in the winter though.

To say I am obsessed with florals and stripes is an understatement!  They are two of my favorite patterns and are the perfect patterns to pattern mix together.  I have a huge section of my closet dedicated to these two patterns.  This dreaming of floral top from Simple Addiction was a must have with new obsession with cold shoulder tops.  This top has so many perfect details.  From the criss cross top, the feminine cold shoulder, down to the flowiness at the bottom.


I have been looking for a striped cotton skirt for a while.  I found this one from Simple Addiction, and I love it!  For sizing purposes this is a medium.  I could have sized up to a large for a slouchier fit.  This one works perfectly though for a more polished look!  I decided to knot the top to give the silhouette of this top a more defined outline.  These two pieces I consider closet staples.  They can be worn with so many other looks, and into other seasons!


Since the humidity has been high in Indiana, I decided to keep my accessories simple.  I decided the colors in my bracelet stack from Centered Jewelry helped enhance the look versus make it even busier.  When pattern mixing, it is a delicate balance to make everything work.  I also added my Elisa Necklace that I won from Tiff and Nicole’s giveaway on Bright on a Budget and What Nicole Wore.  It is the perfect layering piece, but is also one of my favorites to wear on its own.


Simple Addiction is one of the first site’s I found after joining Instagram.  I loved their trendy, but reasonably priced items.  Everything I have ever ordered or received from them have been of the highest quality.  Currently Simple Addiction is having their Anniversary Sale.  There are so many fabulous items on sale and for great prices.  The sale is July 15-24.  You can also use code MANDY15 for an additional 15% off.  What are your favorite pieces?

One of my favorite things to look for at the start of each season is what is trending.  So let’s start talking about summer trends!  Gingham is showing up all over Instagram and in stores!  To see some of my favorite gingham pieces scroll down to the bottom of this post!  Most of them are also on sale!

I found these shorts at Loft and knew that I had to have them.  These shorts fit true to size.  The length is perfect so you don’t feel like you are constantly having to pull them down.  I decided for the inaugural wearing of these shorts that I wanted an easy and carefree look.

Since I have been trying to mix in older pieces lately, I decided to pull out this boho top from Target.  I love the embroidery details along with the flutter sleeves.  For my accessories, I decided to go for a bolder necklace.  My monogram came from my sweet friend teacherannie.  If you haven’t seen her Instagram page you need to check it out!  To even out the accessories, I decided to add a bracelet stack from Centered Jewelry and my simple Kendra Scott Tima earrings.  What is your favorite summer trend this year?

It has been awhile since I have done an Instagram in review!  This week has been a mixture of styles, but one thing has remained consistent.  Everything I am wearing is comfortable and perfect for running after two ornery boys!  We have spent a lot of time at the baseball fields and swimming!  A lot of the pieces I am wearing are from Loft, and are currently on sale!  All tees, tanks, dresses, and cropped pants are currently 50% off. Scroll to the bottom to see some of the items I am currently loving!
