When warmer weather finally decides to show it's face it tends to bring that dreaded look into our closet for something to wear. We've only had a couple warmer weather days so far but every year the same thing happens ....I hate everything in my closet! Does this happen to anyone else? Not yet ready for shorts, jeans are too hot and you want to be comfortable and still look put together. Every year I find myself wanting to add more casual dresses to my closet.  Throw on a cute necklace, some cute sandals and you're good to go. I'm loving the season trends of off the shoulder, one shoulder, linen, chambray and stripe dresses right now.  So I've scoured the internet searching for great dresses to add to your closet and here's what I came up with. Please share any great dresses you've spotted. I'm always on the hunt for more. 

Neutrals are always great summer choices because you can dress them up with fun colorful accessories or throw on a fedora and strappy flats for a more casual look. I got a similar black fitted cotton dress from Athleta last year and wore it so much more then I thought I would. This is a similar style from evereve. You can't go wrong with a black midi dress. I also love a pretty white dress. The detail on the top of this is so delicate and I love the relaxed style. 

The off the shoulder trend is HUGE right now. I feel like everywhere I look, this is all I find but I do love the look. Although this style probably isn't the most user friendly if you're chasing around little kids, it's great for a beach coverup or a casual night out. I recently got the Banana Republic chambray off the shoulder dress and it's really cute in person. It looks plain on it's own so I paired it with a cute braided belt and a pair of wedges and these tassel earrings. 

As I was looking for dresses I kept adding striped dresses to the list. I tend to gravitate towards stripes in the summer. Lots of cute options from the casual t-shirt dress to an off the shoulder blue and white dress that can be dressed up for a night out. I'm really loving this Boden one! A casual striped t-shirt dress pairs great with a jean jacket and booties on days that its cooler. 

Maxi's and bright prints are a must for summer time. Super comfortable and great as coverups too! This pleated aqua maxi from Vici Collection is my favorite color and looks great with a tan! They have so many great dress options including this blue one. There is a line at Target called Knox Rose and its the cutest boho collection. I haven't seen this dress in person but I love the color and style. A maxi is your go to, don't have to think about putting something together summer look. 

You can shop all these dresses below. There are lots of great sales going on too!

Ballard Designs has a great sale going on right now through 5/11! 25% off of lighting, rugs, and wall decor. We often source from BD as they have great selection of lighting, rugs and art at good price points. I've also been happy with their quality as well. Below are some of my favorites from each sale category.


I'm kind of obsessed with this new Aerlie pendant. A little bit of glam for a beachside retreat. Would look great in a bathroom! 

Also loving this Aberdeen chandelier. I could see this paired with dark walls in a dining room. 

These lauren lamps are great for a bedroom. I especially love the colors and they would look so cute in a little girls room too.

What a great price point for a flush mount light fixture. It looks way more expensive then it actually is. I may be adding this to my half bath.

A simple yet modern reading lamp. You can adjust the shade as well.

For an easy update, try switching out your lampshades on your current lamps. These painted ones will make a statement.


I always gravitate to abstract art and these are my favorite colors. I love how they're shown stacked or pair above a bed or above a sofa. This color looks great with blue/navy accents too.

These would be adorable in a little boys nautical room. Or if you live near the beach in a mudroom. There are even more designs online if you'd want to create a bigger gallery.

I'm drawn to this every time I browse their art. This would be beautiful in a white office or above a fireplace mantle and with blush accents.

A simple gallery collection is always a good idea. I especially love a clean gallery in a hallway. Place a console table below with a lamp and a decorative fern and you have yourself a welcoming space.

This piece is on trend with all the bohemian over dyed blue pillow prints. I recently just got these Magnolia Home pillows and this art would pair well with them.

A more wallet friendly version of a Chinoiserie reproduction. These feature a nailhead trim too. These would be beautiful paired above bedside tables.


Both of these colorways look great in this diamond sisal rug 

I'm in LOVE with this rug! I recently used it for a clients living room and it's gorgeous. I actually want an antelope runner so I can't decide if I want to wait until I do that or update my living room rug with this option. 

I love the simple pattern of this jute rug. Would be a great runner in a kitchen or a rug for under the table. 

Gorgeous color selection of striped rugs. Would be cute in kids bedrooms. 

A personalized welcoming may of course! 

I have yet to see this rug in person but it always catches my eye. If you're going for the Turkish rug look. It don't want to spend the money on one, this could be a great alternative.

Mother's Day is right around the corner and however you decide to spend Mother's Day, I hope you get some R&R. I've rounded up some of my favorite picks for Mother's Day this year. I mean being whisked off to the spa with your girlfriends would be amazing but any of these gifts would do too.

1. I spotted similar blue marble candles at Blue Mercury the other month and fell in love. Such a pretty candle and the nest candles smell amazing.

2.A new pair of kicks and in blush too! Tretorns used to be my favorite. The Steve Madden black sandals can go but I'm glad these are back.

8. I recently got this tote and it's the perfect size. Would also be great as an updated diaper bag for a mom with toddlers or a carry on bag if you're treating yourself to a little getaway. Also if you spend $50 you can get one of my favorite go to clutch for only $14.99!!

9. A classic cover up

10. Because moms sometimes need a good laugh

11. Share a couple family recipes and add them to this adorable recipe card tin
