White on White

The week after having a three day weekend is the BEST! I missed being at work; call me crazy, but I really did! I’ve got a busy week ahead, but I’m pumped for it. I’ve been wanting to tackle the “white on white” trend for a really long time, and was finally inspired enough to figure it out over Memorial Day weekend. So here are a couple of tips to rocking white on white!

The absolute most important thing is to make sure both pieces you are wearing are a true white! I took these pieces into natural lighting, because few things are worse than white and ivory. If you want to do ivory on ivory…do it! But white against ivory just looks like one piece is dirty.

If you’re nervous to go full on Kim K, start with a piece that has a white base with a pattern on it. It’s a little on the safer side! If you ARE going full on, be sure to add some texture to the top or bottom! I found this top at Old Navy (not available online, but I have seen it in stores). The little pom poms and embroidered detail adds a little bit of dimension to break up the very monochromatic look! This top also comes in black, but that’s not super helpful for the purposes of this post!


I loved pairing this denim jacket with it! You can tie one around your waist to break up the colors, or you could just wear it normally (don’t tell the hipsters I said that).


As far as shoes go, stay in the neutral family! Something too bold will stick out and honestly, the outfit sticks out enough on its own! These are currently my FAVORITE heels from Old Navy (again, in stores).

Lastly, add a soft color via accessories like these fun tassel earrings!

Any white on white outfit is a guaranteed showstopper, and very on trend! Be bold enough to try it! Happy Wednesday, friends!

The Cold Shoulder 

Happy Hump Day! It’s half way through the week (of a holiday weekend) and I ended this day the best way I knew how, with a pedicure! At work, the end of the week is just FUN. I get to visit one of our stores on Wednesday, Thursdays are for photo shoots and Fridays are for bloggers! I mean, they pay me to do this kind of thing, sometimes it doesn’t even feel fair…but hey, I’ll take it!

If you can’t yet tell by my Instagram, I’m obsessing a little bit over the off the shoulder trend. Nathan is about to cut me off from buying anymore! Another fun fact about me: I LOVE chambray/denim. My favorite color is pink, but my favorite color to WEAR is blue. Sky blue, to be exact. If someone gave me a laundry bag made out of chambray, I would pull it off the shoulder and throw on a statement necklace.

With ALL of that said: I bring to you an off the shoulder chambray top. I bet you weren’t expecting that! I found this top at Old Navy and they have it in a DRESS too! It was perfect for church on Sunday with white, distressed denim that I got at Dress Up (they’re my fav) and some nude heels…also from Dress Up! One of my favorite color combos is sky blue, white and light pink. I typically don’t wear pink, but I always throw it in with my accessories. Whether it’s a Kendra Scott necklace or a cute little cross-body! It’s just so girly and sweet. 

We are gearing up for Memorial Day weekend around the Page household, and it can’t get here fast enough! 



Mini Vacay + New Swimwear

You’ve got friends that you can go to dinner and drinks with, and then you have friends that you can travel with. There’s a HUGE difference. Spending four days straight with people that aren’t family can be tough, but once you find those friends, KEEP THEM FOREVER. Chelsea and Travis are those friends for us.

In Januaray we decided that a beach trip was in order. At the time, May seemed like forever away and then it just showed up like “Hey Anna, you need to pack we are leaving in like five hours.”

We headed out Thursday morning for Perdido Key and came back Sunday afternoon and man, it was just what we needed. The beach is just therapeutic, isn’t it? I don’t know if it’s the sun, the sand, the sea or the combo of all three (that rhymed) but it just WORKS.

Besties for the resties.

Our sweet husbands drove about 30 minutes to get us Starbucks, can you say #goals?

About a week before we left, I found this swimsuit at H&M for $10. I was SO skeptical because I typically live by “you get what you pay for” when shopping. But. This. Suit. Y’all. It fits so well! It held up perfectly fine in the water and on the beach all day and I still just couldn’t believe that it was $10 for the top and bottom!

I found this cover up at Old Navy for $8! They ALWAYS have swim on sale and the quality is great. I also love this one, too!

I also found these sandals that were great for the beach, because I never want to take nice sandals onto the beach and get them ruined. They are the perfect dupe for this pair I saw at Nordstrom, but couldn’t quite justify spending that much on a pair of sandals.

I loved this beachy combo and can’t wait to put it to good use the rest of the summer!



Go-To Summer Bag

My mom always taught me about handbags and what seasons are appropriate for which bags. Leather works all the time, straw is for summer, suede is for fall and winter…and so on. Like most things my mom taught me, I never appreciated it until I was older; but all that information is now GOLD. Momma’s are good like that — under-appreciated at times, but always on point.

Summer is always tricky to me. I never want dark bags because almost everything I wear in the Summer is bright. White bags freak me out because I wear dark denim (and there are just some things you can’t cure). Having something that is so easy to get dirty is never ideal in my mind. I also have the constant struggle of everything needing to match, another thing I got from my Mom…it’s a blessing and a curse.

With all of these things in play, I landed on a light grey purse for Summer — and boy, do I LOVE it! When I say it goes with everything, I mean it goes with everything. This particular one was a gift from my sweet co-workers last Summer from the Kate Spade Outlet. It has shorter handle straps (but also comes with a detachable long strap) and is a great medium size bag. I can fit all of my usual items in it, but can also put an iPad in the side zipper. It’s very ideal for the working woman, too. 🙂 I typically carry it all Summer with the exception of my light pink crossbody from Old Navy (see every Instagram #OOTD I’ve ever posted), which is also a GREAT bag to have for weekend errands or traveling!

It may not seem like much, but a handbag is something you take with you everywhere you go! Invest accordingly!
