Weekly Style 21: A New Beginning

Hey hey hey!

I’ve been extremely focused on revamping my blog lately. We are coming up on one year of Sunflowers and Seersucker and while I’m so happy with how far I’ve come in terms of sharing my writing and meeting new people, I just keep learning more that I want to incorporate!

With that, Weekly Style will be taking on a new form. While I still may share some of my favorite new pieces from my favorite brands, I want to focus more on what I’m wearing!

Here is my first look:

IMG_0210

My summer style has been seriously slacking lately because of our “clinical dress code” for class (khakis), so this is what I put on as soon as I could take my khakis off last weekend!

My shirt and shorts are both from Banana Republic Factory Store. You can find the shirt here. I got this shirt at the beginning of the summer as part of my professional attire for school. I love this shirt because it goes from professional to casual seamlessly!

The shorts are from last summer and unfortunately, there aren’t any in this color on their website right now, but here are some turquoise shorts from Old Navy!

These sunglasses are the ones I’m wearing in the photo but I wanted to post a few different options because I absolutely love sunglasses! This pair is the classic cat-eye and I’m obsessed! Then we have these ones that are along the same black/gold theme. The last pair is another favorite style of mine- the oversized sunglasses. Is it just me or does anyone else feel famous walking around with huge sunglasses??

My sandals are from Kelly  & Katie and I bought them at DSW! The particular style I have is not online anymore but they just released the Poppie flats which are very similar (and still come in gold!).

Last but not least is my Starfish Project Necklace! If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile you know Starfish Project is one of my favorite places to get jewelry from and funny enough, a year ago yesterday I ordered my first piece of jewelry from them (River Gold Triangle Necklace)! While they no longer have the necklace I’m wearing, here are some other turquoise options: the Jones necklace- similar to a petite version of what I’m wearing, the Keely necklace- I’m loving all the turquoise lately and I’m obsessed with this one in particular, and of course the Marissa necklace- how could I pass up featuring that one?!

I hope you enjoyed this post! I had a lot of fun creating it and sharing a peak into my closet!

Weekly Style 20: Make a Splash

It has been too long since I posted a Weekly Style and since summer is in full swing (heat and humidity included) I wanted to share some of my favorite swim wear!

I just bought this top with the matching bottoms earlier today when I made last minute Forth of July plans.

Who can pass up gingham?!

Up next is another Old Navy pick:

Here is the link for the top as well as the bottoms. I think the ruffle makes this top so fun! The polka dots make this look so classic, all you need to complete the look are some big sunglasses!

Up next I have a few bathing suits from J. Crew that are too good to pass up:

I absolutely love this one piece! It combines the gingham from my first pick and the ruffle from my second to create an adorable one piece!

Screen Shot 2018-07-03 at 10.02.21 PM

I love the details in this one. From the straps in the top to the ties in the bottoms (not currently online) this piece has so many things going for it! If you wanted to try to make a little more of a statement try these striped bottoms instead.

And then we have some of my Nordstrom faves:

I needed to include a scalloped piece! You can get the top here and the bottoms here.  I’ve been looking for a scalloped piece for awhile and if this goes on sale in a few weeksI might end up putting it in my cart.

If you’re looking for more inspiration check out my Pinterest board here!

Stay stylish, and cool!

Weekly Style 19

This Weekly Style is so special because it is all about a collection from one of my favorite bloggers! Kate from Lonestar Southern was one of the biggest influences when I wanted to create a blog! Her style is absolute goals and she seems like she has such a great time blogging that I thought hey that might be fun! She is also the reason I found out about Starfish Project, one of my favorite jewelry lines.

Kate teamed up with a store in Dallas called The Impeccable Pig to create the cutest summer line! There are so many cute pieces so lets get started:

Gone to Charleston Crop Top & Gone to Charleston Shorts

Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 11.19.34 PM

How cute is this set?! I love the complete look but I also love that you can mix and match with other pieces in the collection. My favorite part of the top is definitely the ruffle and my favorite part of the bottoms are the tie waist! So adorable!

Picnic Party Stripe Romper

Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 11.26.03 PM

This romper is so sweet! One thing I love about rompers is how easy they are, there’s no time wasted in trying to find a top/bottom because it’s all built in! The details of this romper make it even cuter, I’m obsessed with the red trim and there is a cute keyhole cutout on the back.

Free Flowin’ Pink Dress

Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 11.33.38 PM

This dress is gorgeous! I love the colors and the print! It is so flowy which makes it absolutely perfect for the summer. And the icing on the cake: it looks like it is a little longer in the back! Us tall girls need all the help we can get!

Last is my absolute favorite piece: Little Darling Embroidered Dress

Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 11.43.50 PM

Darling is definitely the perfect description for this dress! I am in love with the sleeves and the embroidery! I am such a huge fan of off the shoulder dresses and everything about this dress is perfect!

To end today’s post I just wanted to share some of the cute statement earrings in the collection:

Weekly Style 15

How could I not write about Lilly this week when Lilly swim just came out! Right now it’s  40 degrees and rainy but as Lilly said, “Not always sunny, but always in a sunny state of mind.”

IMG_5483

The first Lilly I bought from the APS was a swim coverup so I was so excited to find out Lilly swim was back!

The first piece I am obsessed with is the Cay Twist Bandeau

Screen Shot 2018-02-24 at 4.04.41 PM

My favorite pattern is Multi Catch The Wave but Twilight Blue Gypsea is also gorgeous and I don’t think you can go wrong either way! You can find the matching bottoms here. Another options for bottoms are here and they have a little bit of a wider band.

Ginette Coverup

Screen Shot 2018-02-24 at 4.10.41 PM

This coverup is adorable! The pattern and the fringe make it so fun and it also looks cool!

And for towels you have the Circa Round Beach Towel

Screen Shot 2018-02-24 at 4.13.36 PM

This looks like the perfect spot to curl up and read a book all day!

And what else would you use to carry all your stuff to the beach besides the Destination Beach Tote

Screen Shot 2018-02-24 at 4.16.29 PM

This bag comes in tons of fun destinations like Naples, Sarasota, and Key West but how could you not pick where it all started!

Let me know you you will be mixing and matching all these fun prints on your way to the beach!

Stay stylish!
