Summer Trends: Monday Must Haves!

Hey friends! Who’s excited about Monday? haha, most of you are probably like, nope, not me but you see I think of Monday as a clean slate, a new week to set new goals and at least try to hit a few. On another note, have you ever realized that coffee tastes amazing on Monday mornings too? Think about it, it’s true right! I mean, what’s not to celebrate!

Ok, enough with that. Today I though I would post about some of my recent favorite trends or some things I have deemed absolute MUST HAVES this season. I haven’t done this in a while and today seemed like a good day to do so. Hope you all enjoy!


Monday Must Haves - Sophisticated and Styled

Top: Express // Shorts: AGOLDE // Handbag: Nordstrom – Street Level

Necklace: simple chain, with turquoise bead // Earrings: Kendra Scott


Wear mustard! Say whaaat? Yes, its true, mustard yellow is the “it” color to wear this season and to be honest, I love it so much more than I thought it would. I would say I never gravitated toward this color but once I started wearing it I seem to choose this color over lets say, pink, like I used to. Other shades of yellow also fall into this category – I share a brighter yellow cami below that I absolutely love.

Try it out and let me know what you think!

#2. Jumpsuits

Monday Must Haves - Sophisticated and Styled

Jumpsuit: Nordstrom – Lira Clothing Marni Jumpsuit  // Sandals: Steve Madden – Greece Slides  // Denim jacket: Nordstrom

Handbag: Clare V tote // Necklace: 1, 2, 3 // Floral Earrings: Baublebar


Ya’ll this jumpsuit is so so darn comfortable, I may as well have been walking around in pajamas. This one is selling out fast but I’ll link a few more jumpsuits below.  I prefer a more casual jumpsuit because I do a lot of running around town with my toddler but I have purchased a few nicer jumpsuits as well. See below. They really are versatile, I loved the one above paired with a denim jacket – it adds that perfect touch and I’m always cold anyway. It looks equally great without too though.

Here’s a dressier jumpsuit option (note the color ;p). I love this one. That eyelet detail is so so cute!


Monday Must Haves - Sophisticated and Styled

Jumpsuit: Asos // Wedges: Red Dress Boutique // Handbag: Red Dress Boutique

Necklace: simple chainwith turquoise bead // Earrings: Kendra Scott // Bracelet: Waxing Poetic (15% off with code STACIE)


I wore this nicer jumpsuit to dinner a few weeks ago and had so many compliments on it. At least two women stopped me in my tracks to ask where it was from. I have to say, as a style blogger, moments like that make my day.

Other jumpsuit options:


#3. Statement Earrings

Cami: Madewell, and here // Jeans: Nordstrom // Earrings: BaubleBar // Necklace: , simple chain, crescent moon

Statement earrings are always a must have but big floral earrings like the ones shown with the jumpsuit are definitely popular this season as well as big drop earrings. I am a huge fan of statement earrings, they always top off any outfit. Every Spring/Summer I always grab 1 or 2 big fun white statement earrings because they tend to go with everything.

Other statement earring options:


#4. High Waist Shorts

Monday Must Haves - Sophisticated and Styled

Yellow cami: ASOS // Shorts with ruffle detail: ASOS // Handbag: Nordstrom – Street Level

Necklace: 1, 2, 3 // Bracelet: Waxing Poetic (15% off with code STACIE)


I have a blog post dedicated to paper bag shorts, you can see it here, so you guys know I’m all about the high waist trend. Lately, I’ve also been loving what I’m calling statement shorts, shorts that just have a little something different, like the ruffle detail seen above. I cannot get enough of these this summer.


Other high waist shorts options:



#5. Button Down Dresses

Monday Must Haves - Sophisticated and Styled

Dress: Forever 21 ($20!!!)  // Sandals: Steve Madden – Greece Slides  // Handbag: Nordstrom – Street Level

Necklace: 1, 2 // Earrings: Baublebar // Hat: J Crew // Sunnies: Nordstrom BP (sold out)


I have been so attracted towards anything button down this year. I LOVE this trend. If you have been following me, you know that I love this cami, I literally have it in EVERY color! It’s so good. I do dress more casual but I decided to grab this adorable button down dress and I’m so glad I did. It was light and breezy, perfect for running around this past Sunday.
