Hello Sailor!

Top:  (similar here and here) | Shorts: F21 (similar here) | Sandals: Target | Bag: Urban Outfitters (similar here)

Last look from vacation. Bright high waisted sailor shorts and a cropped tube top was the perfect combo for a night out. This actually was the first look I pulled together when packing last week. It embodies my favorite trends for the summer. Beach + sailor short = perfection. :) Now back to real life.

Go Floral

Dress: Old Navy (old, similar looks here, here and here) | Hat: JCrew | Bag: Urban Outfitters (similar here) | Sandals: Target

While on a beach vacation, Hawaiian inspired florals and hats are a must for me. Just a great way to get into the vacation spirit at the start of the day.

Bare Shoulders

Top: Kimchi Blue | Shorts: Target (great option here) | Sandals: Target | Earrings: Kendra Scott | Bag: Urban Outfitters (similar here)

Second look from my beach getaway. I love all the palm trees and bright florals. Wish I could bring some of that back home with me. :)
Cut out/bare shoulder tops are the perfect combo for hot summer days. Adds a little elegance to your basic tank.

8th & Ocean

Dress: Zara | Bag: Urban Outfitters (similar here) | Sandals: Target | Necklace: House of Harlow 1960

Happy Sunday! I'm finally back from my beach getaway, and it was a great time surfing the waves and visiting with family. We spent our days at different beaches throughout the area and our nights hanging out at local restaurants and my Uncle and Aunt's amazing tiki hut they created in their backyard. All the bright colors and beach side themes and textures were inspirational for the perfect summer looks.

Soft Dressing

Skirt: Sparkle & Fade (similar here) | Kimono: Cameo & Myth (similar here) | Sandals: Target | Necklace: Nastygal | Bag: Steven by Steve Madden

Happy Friday! Getting ready for my beach adventure so felt bohemian today in long soft layers to get me in the easy carefree mood. Soft separates are on an upswing, and I love combining different pieces together. Perfect to keep you cool in summer with light weight fabrics.

I'll be offline for the next week, but I plan to have lots of beach pictures to share when I return. Or check out my instagram (abbycec) for fun photos throughout the week. :)


Tee: Joe Fresh | Vest: 424 Fifth (similar here) | Jeans: Target (similar here) | Shoes: ShoeMint | Jewelry: JCrew, Michael Kors watch

Back to basics today with easy black and white pieces. A great go-to combo!


Jacket: Gap (old, similar here) | Shortall: American Eagle Outfitters | Shirt: JCrew (other options here and here) | Sandals: Target

I wish I had more opportunities to layer in the summer, but unfortunately it can be bloody hot in Texas. Silver lining...thunderstorms that provide a little relief. Trying some new pairings today to spice up my shortalls. I like the idea of layering a casual jacket or soft blazer to make it less "country" as my husband likes to call the overall trend. Though I am pretty sure today's look might be lumberjack adjacent. Still love it. :)

Sheer Floral

Dress: Urban Outfitters (old, similar options here, here and here) | Bag: Urban Outfitters (similar here) | Sandals: Target

Just another fun floral maxi today. I've had this one for awhile, but it took me some time to find good undergarments since it is basically sheer. (You can't tell from the photos). So I took inspiration from the celeb circuit and added high waisted retro shorts to provide coverage. Not too shabby.
