What a Labor day weekend! Getting to celebrate my mother and her birthday in such a spectacular place was amazing! We had so much fun and created life long memories! It was a super quick trip so I packed two nice outfits and the rest really comfortable. My style revolves around comfort so when I am traveling this is extra important. My go-to accessories? Baggy t-shirts, over-sized shorts, and my Tods. The Tods were a gift from my sweet sister-in-law (shout-out to Steph). I originally wondered if I could pull off such a shoe but have quickly become quite a fan! I even just purchased a new snazzy pair yesterday (thanks to the sweet hubs).

I bought my first pair of loafers during a trip I took to London in 2005l. I loved them when I was over there but got home and never took them out of the box once. They weren’t near as comfortable as I remember and just weren’t “me.” Now, I can’t stop wearing the look! Loafers used to have quite a preppy connotation to them but in today’s style, they are more of a relaxed look, a, “I rolled out of bed today but wanted to look semi put together.” Which let’s be honest, is my everyday morning! Since I can’t seem to wake-up in enough time to look cute everyday, this outfit is on repeat. It is very comfortable and practical now and will be a great transitional look into fall!

On another and very exciting note – my new site is almost complete!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please don’t be alarmed when you come here and it says, SO THEN THEY SAY! Let the countdown begin!!!!!!

Happy Memorial Weekend everyone! I hope you have fun plans for the holiday weekend! Mine is extra special this year as I get to celebrate the greatest woman I know, my mother, and her 60th birthday. My family is full of golfers so it was always normal for her and my father to travel to play at Pebble Beach, California. It is one of her favorite places on earth and she always jokes that Pebble Beach is where she wants her ashes spread (not going to happen). She loves it that much! If you were to ask her, what her one dream in life would be, it is always to take her family to all play Pebble Beach together. So for her 60th birthday, that is exactly what my dad is doing. He planned a surprise trip (she knows now) to Pebble Beach! After a year of knowing about this trip we are all very excited to get there, make life long memories, and most importantly to celebrate the woman who has given us everything!

Since I am heading the the airport in the next 10 minutes I thought I would show a quick “chill” outfit that I am planning on wearing to explore the nearby city, Carmel. I have been l-i-v-i-n-g in this look! Maybe because I am really proud of my diy efforts with the distressing or maybe it is because it is ridiculously comfortable! The outfit is perfect for shopping, running errands, going to lunch, ect. If you need a comfortable look – try this! Buy or grab your husbands oversized shorts, throw on a t-shirt, and braid your hair! Voila, it is a complete look!

Have a very safe Labor day weekend!!! xx

Every year Labor Day rolls around and I give up white. I am a child of the south and have always abided by this rule. I know it is outdated and doesn’t stand today, but I still struggle with actually wearing white after Labor Day. It probably comes from my mom who made me change before school if I was wearing the hue. Not that she necessarily cared but it was something her grandmother did to her, so the rule continued. I love fashion and I know it is usually about breaking the rules but this is a rule that I have always been fine abiding by –  even snarking at people who I saw breaking it. You know what “they” say, be careful what you speak because it usually comes back to haunt you. In this case, it has! Being that it is so hot in Texas and white is my favorite color to wear at the moment, I can’t find it in my heart to give it up. Not yet! I am going to break the cycle. I  think with every habit, the first way to break it is admitting you have a problem, so here goes. “Hi. My name is Mary Summers, and I never wear white after labor day.” Officially.broken.

What are your thoughts on this antiquated but still very real rule (to some people)? Am I going to look a total fool for wearing white after September 1st or be just fine? Are there any rules to the rule of it being okay to wear white after labor day? I must say I am clueless when it comes to this. You have officially caught me in a moment of honesty!
