Sweater & Shorts



I've said it before and I'll say it again: A good sweater/shorts combo is one of my favorites! I'm always about balance, meaning I like to pair pants with short or quarter sleeve shirts and short/skirts with long sleeves. While if it's 80+ degrees, I would probably refrain from long sleeves, this is generally my go-to, as it keeps me warm once the sun goes down and the heat starts to disappear. 

In my opinion, the sweater/shorts combo adds some juxtaposition to any outfit. Throw an awesome pair of sandals and you have yourself quite a comfy chic ensemble (I feel like I use that description A TON). 

Have a wonderful day!

A little Boho


Jumpsuit: Anthropologie (old, loving this one) // Bag: Tory Burch (no longer available) // Shoes: Keds // Sunnies: Ray-Ban // Ring: thrifted

I forgot how much I love this jumpsuit. It basically feels like I'm wearing pajamas... I don't know what's better than that. I bought this at Anthropologie last year and have only worn it a couple times, but never on the blog... I figured it was time to debut it! It's super lightweight and uber comfy - perfect for those hot summer days. This a very relaxed way to wear it, but it will also look great with heeled sandals for a night out. 

Hope you have a great day!

Quick Snapshot


Top: ASOS (last worn here) // Denim: Target // Shoes: Jack Rogers // Necklace: Lord and Taylor (similar here) // Flower: Flower Voyage Boutique on Etsy 

Kyle and I snapped these pics right after we finished up our Engagement photo session with Ruthie, our amazing wedding photographer on Thursday evening! We had such a fun night and stumbled upon this cute courtyard off of Boylston St. on our way back to the car. I was obsessed with the street lamps, and since I was already dolled up, I figured a few pics were a must! 

I am SO anxious to see how the pictures turned out! And don't worry, I will definitely be sharing some here on the blog!

Have a great Sunday!

Outfit Inspiration | Summer Concerts



One of my favorite things about summer is attending big concert tours, especially country ones! The above outfit is a perfect mix of comfy and chic - you're able to tailgate and dance the night away and look fabulous doing so. This tassel necklace is so fun and I'm literally obsessing over these Super sunglasses (via J. Crew) and Michael Kors watch! Can you tell I'm a sucker for anything pink? Also, Sephora's own lip gloss is one of my favorites and this hot pink color is drawing me in big time.

Engagement Party Round Up

Last weekend, my parents threw Kyle and I an engagement party with our close friends and family! We had such a lovely evening and were so happy to have the important people in ours live all in one place (this has never happened to us)! We kept the decorations light and the food & drinks heavy (of course), but I wanted to share a few pictures from the night!


Thankfully, the weather held out for us (no rain!), but boyyyy was it hot and humid. 



I found these super cute banners on Etsy and they were just the small touches I was looking for!


Love the peonies and hydrangeas centerpiece. 


I knew I didn't want to wear a dress, so when I found this super cute jumpsuit from BCBG, I knew it would be perfect!


Fun colored straws for the win... 


... and mason jars a plenty! 

       

         

I apologize for the dis-coloring (it's supposed to be a pale pink color!), but wanted to share our engagement invitations! This is still one of my favorite pictures of us, ever! I designed these invitations on Minted (SUCH a great site).

Thanks for stopping by!

Chambray by the Sea


Shirt: Madewell (similar here) // Jeans: Target // Shoes: Sam Edelman (old, gifted) // Sunnies: Karen Walker

We visited the Seaport Village on our last day in San Diego and took these pictures while we were there. I loved that the shopping center was right on the water and you can see the Cornado Bridge in the background! Even though it was overcast, the temps were beautiful and perfect for walking around! We had such a relaxing day... I'm wishing we were back in CA right now! 

Hope you guys have a great Monday!

Weekend Wear



Happy weekend everyone!! I am pretty excited, as I have just about nothing planned this weekend, except for a few Father's Day activities on Sunday! I will definitely be partaking in a lot of R&R and maybe a little shopping (I feel as if I haven't shopped in FOREVER). 

This look is a great mix of simple and girly. The soft pink swing skirt and heels keep the look soft, contrasting well with the bright clutch and statement necklace. 

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Lady in Red


Dress: Madewell // Shoes: Target // Earrings and gold ring: little shop on Cornado Island // Sunnies: Karen Walker

Hi everyone! I hope you guys are having a great week so far! 

When Kyle and I were traveling around California a few weeks back, we stopped off at this beautiful scenic area outside of LA. It was quite a breath of fresh air and the view was endless. It was such a beautiful day out, and I loved being able to wear this new red dress I snagged from Madewell. It's lightweight, super comfy, and matched my espadrilles (and it was on sale)!!  It's not only great for a nice summer day, but also work appropriate! 

Madewell still has this dress available online and in a few other colors! I definitely suggest you go and take a look!! 

XO, MacKenzie

P.S. - sorry for the chipped nails.

Gingham Style



Inspired by these amazing Kate Spade shoes I found at TJ Maxx over the weekend, I decided to round up some lovely gingham items that would be perfect for any spring or summer wardrobe! I'm especially dying for the bow gingham heels and the super cute ruffle-top bikini! The ASOS swing dress is perfect for an easy-breeze look and I like that the Zimmerman dress gives the classic pattern a nice modern silhouette! 

Happy shopping all!

Gray Tee // Braided Belt


Tee: Target // Jeans: Joe's Jeans via TJ Maxx // Belt: Old Navy (available in store) // Shoes: Sam Edelman (not shown) // Watch: MK // Sunnies: ASOS 

For a day filled with shopping a few weeks back, I just wanted to be comfortable, so I wore this super soft gray tee with light wash jeans and braided belt to add a little pop. This belt is one of my favorite buys this season (last seen here); I seriously wear it with everything! A braided belt is always a classic, but the color and width of this one gives it a modern touch. 

Wishing you all a great start to the week!
