Hey friends! 5 pieces 1 outfit is a twice monthly series where we feature 5 pieces that bring together 1 perfect outfit. It doesn’t take a lot of time, money, and or pieces to create a fashionable look that anyone can create. 5 pieces is all you need to make another outfit killer. First, I find it’s best to have a theme so you have a place to build from. That can be a color combo or maybe even an event. But most of all you just need a good base piece. This week’s theme is a baseball cap.

Do you guys wear watches everyday? It seems to be something most people do. But I rarely wore watches before I became a mom. Of course, now everything is on a time schedule. I’m always checking the clock to see if it’s time for a diaper change or time to each or time to go swim class or time for nap! This meant I needed to get a new one. Shopping is never disappointing, but I had a few requirements.
Here in Florida it officially feels like Summer, and yet they tell me it’s Spring. So what that means is – you sweat as soon as you walk outside. And it’ll only get worse from here until September. So I needed something breathable to limit the amount of sweat. Also something lightweight to not weigh me down and make me feel even more uncomfortable. But I also wanted something modern, fun, chic, and fairly neutral. Jord wood watches was the perfect place to go for all those requirements.
I love the modern wood band is totally breathable and lightweight. It barely feels like I have anything on at all. Plus it’s so easy to find your perfect size so you don’t have to worry about slipping and sliding. I chose the mint background because as we all know I’m on a bright colors kick, but they have stunning neutral colored faces as well. They even have some with rose gold accents, and plenty of menswear options as well. This one is my favorite! I can just imagine how handsome it would look on my husbands wrists as he goes to work in his favorite navy suit. Father’s day gifts?
Weekday mornings are so simple to get ready now – a simple tee, linen shorts, earrings, easy sandals, and my watch. I never have to worry about a color scheme or the other metals I have on. The watch ties everything together into a simple, modern, stylish, and perfect for every type of weather outfit.
Of course, the best part is I’ve got a giveaway for you! Enter here for your chance at $100 off any Jord watch. Plus everyone who enters will get a code for $25 off!

For the past 2 months, I’ve had a monthly series of outfits that all focus on one thing. The first was nursing outfits and the second was easy, classics. I’ve decided to keep up with it. First and foremost, you all seemed to enjoy it. But it also backs up one of the things I try to hold true to here on the blog and in my closet. That being buying things you can re-wear often. That’s real life, and I want my blog to show my real life. I love the idea of a capsule wardrobe, but it’s not quite realistic for me right now. 6 months ago my body went through a very drastic event (childbirth) and it’s still changing. Plus, I’m still getting used to those changes. So my wardrobe will be changing for a few more months as I figure out what works and what doesn’t.
Until then I’ll be wearing lots of the things that I already know do work. One of those things are these shorts from old navy. So April’s series will be ‘how to wear shorts’. When I was younger, I thought you could only wear shorts for casual events or active events. Even now I see myself and my friends struggling to figure out how to dress them up a little. After 2 years in Florida, I have a pretty good idea considering I’m lucky enough to wear them year round. Since summer is right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to share a few easy outfits to dress up your shorts!
The first is my favorite white peasant top that I’ve had for years. I got it at Charlotte Russe years and years ago. This is my favorite way to wear it – sweet and simple. This outfit is perfect for date night, dinner with friends, brunch with the girls – anything where you need to be a little nicer than casual but not business.
