Shein Red White Plaid Spaghetti Strap Blouse (on sale for $5!)  •  One Teaspoon Bad Seed Bandits Shorts (also love these + these)  •  Soludos Jason Polan Wink Espadrilles  •  Round Handle Tassel Straw Tote (only $30!)  •  Céline 41093 Sunglasses in Antique Rose  •  Gold Crescent Horn Necklace (also love this style)  •  Gold Disc Necklace

Yup! You read that correctly. This adorable summer tank is currently on sale for $5!! I almost didn’t believe it when I saw it. I’ve been living in this tank since I purchased it. It’s truly the most perfect tank for summer, especially with these sweltering temperatures we’ve had in Dallas lately. I love the subtle ruffle detail at the top and the flowing fit. So if you’re looking to do summer style on a budget, I think $5 is about as an amazing of a deal as it’s going to get!

Speaking of amazing deals, this straw tote has been a favorite lately and it’s currently still available with limited stock for only $30! I’ve been eyeing pricier options, but squealed in excitement when I found this tote online. It has neon tassels one one side, but given the obvious fact that neon just isn’t my thing, I removed them all together. So now it’s the perfect summer straw tote! Never under estimate the power of a little DIY.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

There are only two days left to snag Nordstrom Anniversary Sale  items before the sale goes public on Friday! I’m usually underwhelmed by this sale but there are some amazing must-haves this year that I wouldn’t pass up. Including this tee! This is hands down one of the most perfect tees I’ve tried on in a while. It has just the right amount of bagginess without looking frumpy, and it isn’t see through! Also, how perfect would this scarf be over a simple tee?

And can we talk about how gorgeous this green faux leather jacket is? I love that this comes in a fall hue instead of basic black – and that it’s currently on sale for under $100! This is a great way to add a little bit of color without going overboard. I can’t stop staring at it online!! You could easily pair it with a simple black slip dress as well.

I would also snag this gorgeous suede crop moto jacket (I practically lived in mine last fall!) or these block heel booties before they’re gone!

Diversity Chic: Chambray

Well this is embarrassing. Didn’t I just say in yesterday’s post that I don’t own or wear a lot of chambray? #awkward

Ok, so maybe I do wear more chambray than I thought. It’s a fabric that works with every skin tone and body type and comes in a number of styles (including this bell sleeve style from yesterday’s post). I was lucky to be a part of this month’s Diversity Chic featuring, you guessed it… chambray!

For those of you who aren’t familiar, Diversity Chic is a collaboration of Dallas bloggers showcasing current fashion trends on a variety of skin tones, hair colors, body types and heights. Each month a new trend tailored to each personality and style is featured with four of my favorite Dallas ladies.

I opted for a subtle chambray shirt in a much lighter color and paired it with one of my favorite geo printed skirts (also seen here and here) for chic, picnic attire. This turned out to be the cutest picnic set up in the prettiest park. Who doesn’t love a good summer picnic? The perfect time to chat with friends and munch on delicious snacks while getting some fresh air.

I love that this was all focused on the chambray trend, but we all styled it completely differently. The best thing about style is seeing everyone embrace their body types and dress accordingly. Real styles, for real women. Any woman can pull off any trend and make it their own and this post is dedicated to unique styles and women everywhere.

Make sure to check out the other Diversity Chic posts with Stephanie, Sevi, Valery and Denise.
