jeans + white button-down

jeans + white button-down

jeans and a white button-down are a simple and timeless pairing. although i have a few pairs of well-loved jeans, i have yet to come across a white button-down that i absolutely love. don't get me wrong–i really like this cotton-linen button-down that i blogged about a few months ago. it will be a great coverup and looks adorable when i knot the ends in the front. however, it's not the easiest shirt to tuck in, and i'm not always willing to put in the effort. if you have a favorite white button-down and are willing to share some details, i'm all ears!

the best woven totes for summer
a woven tote is high on my wish list right now. for the beach, pool, farmer's market, or to use as an everyday bag. i don't have a favorite bag yet, but i do like ones with stripes!

one: the winding road moroccan market basket / two: gap stripe straw tote / three: mango raffia shopper bag / four: topshop pineapple woven tote / five: rip curl high roller stripe beach bag / six: j.crew market tote / seven: madewell straw beach tote / eight: mar y sol caracas tote

romantic peasant top

suede knotted sandals

anthropologie is one of those stores that i rarely walk away from empty-handed. case in point: this peasant top. i had been admiring it online for a while and recently went to a store to try it on. sometimes peasant tops can have too much excess fabric resulting in more of a potato sack look; this top is not one of those tops. it's flowy and feminine and absolutely beautiful! as far as sizing goes, i tried on both a medium and a small. i didn't notice much of a difference between the two, except that the small was a bit too cropped for my liking.

if you're searching for some new denim shorts this summer, i would highly recommend checking out old navy! my sister and i were searching high and low for new denim shorts. when she was home for spring break, she picked up a pair at old navy. i was seriously impressed with how durable the denim felt, and i really liked that it had some stretch (and guys, you seriously can't beat the price). we both got the dark wash, and i can't wait until it's warm enough to wear them. i will say that i found the sizing to be pretty generous and went down a size for a better fit.

lastly, the shoes. oh, the shoes. remember them from this post? they went on sale and i immediately scooped them up. it's love.

mango picks

tassel bag
embroidered trim top
embroidered panel dress
tassel bracelets
crochet panel dress
linen-cotton openwork top
paisley cotton scarf

my warm weather wardrobe is mostly white, denim, and various shades of blue. over the weekend i cleaned out my closet (anyone else love cleaning out their closet?), and now i'm looking to pick out a few new items for spring and summer.

i'm loving mango's spring and summer collection right now. so many pieces are right up my alley. i've never purchased anything from mango before, but i think that's going to change because i'm crazy about this linen-cotton blend top. i think the openwork trim is so pretty!

does anything jump out at you? i've included all of my favorite picks below.
