the one with glory

This Summer it’s all about the 5 pieces 1 outfit in real life. 5 pieces 1 outfit is the first series here on the blog every other Friday. It stemmed from my love of classic yet modern, easy to wear, chic and simple fashion. This Summer will be one of the busiest ever for me, and I live in Florida so it’s gonna be hot. I don’t want to have a lot on, and getting ready can’t take a lot of time. It’s the perfect time to do a ton of 5 pieces 1 outfit real life posts! I have a formula when I do these in real life – top, bottom, shoes, earrings, finisher. My finisher depends on what I’m doing and it also means I might actually photograph 6 or more pieces, but I’ll explain each outfit so you’ll understand why.

I wore this outfit way back on Easter because glory and Jesus. It was super comfortable tho, and seeing it again reminds me to wear it again! Do you ever have outfits like that?

This casual black dress is actually a maternity dress. I love it for pregnancy because it’s so stretchy. When I’m pregnant I feel so beautiful and honestly sexy. So a tight dress to show off my figure is right up my ally. Currently though, I’m 9 months postpartum. I’ve lost all the baby weight, but everything sits differently. I could do some exercises and tighten it up, lose the weight I needed to lose pre pregnancy. But it’s in our plan to have another baby. So for now I’m embracing it. That means I still look pregnant in this dress. But it’s fine because it’s comfortable and keeps me cool!

I’m from Indiana, but we live in Florida. It truly feels like home so when I saw this shirt I had to snatch it up. That’s all because we have such wonderful friends. I knew we’d need to find a church to find friends down here so we jumped in as soon as we felt ready. Guys, they are my family now. I love this little church and this little beach town of mine more than I thought was possible 2.5 years ago. Indiana was my home for 29 years and my family is there. But now I have 2 homes.

This floral dress is 4 years old, but it’s still one of my favorites. I bought it for my bridal shower from old navy. Now I wear it to other showers and to church quite often. I’ve linked a couple very similar dresses. Old navy has the style still, but no florals this year!

the one with fall transition

The weather is pretty different here in Indiana than it was in Florida. It’s hot and wet in Florida but in Indiana right now it’s actually quite pleasant. That changes quite a few things when it comes to my wardrobe, especially when you add in that Fall is right around the corner. So today I want to share 5 outfits that are perfect for that transition to fall. And those cooler summer days. Since we’re in the summer of 5 pieces 1 outfit, all of them are 3 or 4 pieces. Lots of the pieces come from Tobi, which I’ve talked about my love for on the blog before! All you have to do is add a purse and some easy accessories to make it your own. I, of course, will tell you what I would add.

An easy maxi dress with a jean jacket and some sandals, how much better could it be!? I’d grab a crossbody purse and some fun earrings to make it perfect.  – Margot Contrast Maxi Dress . sandals old from old navy . jean jacket

This might be my favorite of them all. Take those off the shoulder tops to fall by covering your legs and your feet! I’d put my hair in a top knot, grab a clutch, some bright lipstick, and add some tassel earrings.  – jeans . top .   flats . 

This beautiful mni dress from Tobi can be worn in the fall by simply adding your favorite pair of leggings! Some booties, a crossobdy purse to match, and simple earrings finish this look off.- leggings . palm springs dress . booties

Plaid will always be fall to me so for the transition period some shorts leave with that summer feeling. A backpack and some gold studs will finish this look off perfectly. – booties . top old from target. shorts

This long cardigan from Tobi is seriously my favorite thing for this fall! Some shorts and simple flats make it perfect to wear now. – shorts . top old from shopbop . leopard flats . nikki cardigan

This outfit is my daily uniform. I’m always in shorts or my white jeans with a simple tee, sandals, these two special necklaces, and a pair of earrings. This way I feel put together, but comfortable no matter what we do or where we go! I grab my go to sunnies and the diaper bag and we can rush out the door! or sit at home!

This week we’re talking about black in summer.

Florida is officially hot, hot, hot. It has been for several weeks to be honest. We skip right past spring and straight into summer around April. So I wasn’t sure this outfit was going to work. Of course, black in summer isn’t always the best idea. But this top is the perfect lightweight material so it works. Plus it’s super cute and flattering.

I have on 6 pieces, but I think we’ve all learned that sunglasses rarely count. They are a staple, and as basic as underwear to me.

5 pieces 1 outfit: soak sandals

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 soak sandals!

Soak slides are an innovative sandal that are comfortable and offer great arch support! They designers made them specifically for our everyday needs from the city, seaside, or the country. They’re also vegan and made in the USA! I love my pair! My favorite way to wear them is just like this. They’re easy to slide on for errands and walks, and if I am out longer than I expect they’re super comfortable! Use code NICHE15 for your own pair!

This is my favorite skirt! I wear it all the time, yet somehow it’s never been on the blog. Of course, that’s because you never picture yourself on normal days for the blog. It’s chiffon so it’s light and breezy and lays perfectly. There’s not much to explain for this outfit as a whole. It’s only 5 pieces except for my sunglasses! Those are on so my eyes aren’t squinty.

This week is all about vintage earrings that are perfect for the 4th of July! It’s obviously hot, hot, hot here in Florida, and I’ve got a 9 month old to take care during the fireworks. So this outfit is super simple and casual. Perfect for my favorite kinda holiday. The stretchy material of the romper even makes it good for nursing. Also . . . I found this romper at WALMART! and it’s perfect! It of course is not on their website, but I linked some similar ones.
