Perfect Summer OTS Dress

Another off the shoulder dress for summer? Groundbreaking. I sure hope you all know what movie I'm referencing with that line. If not (tisk tisk) I'll bring you up to speed here

I found this dress while shopping with my mom, and I'll be honest, I wasn't sure about it at first, but my mom talked me into trying it on and I'm so glad she did! This is such a perfect dress for summer. The fabric is more of a linen-like material, making it super light. It's off the shoulder (duh, what isn't these days) AND.........drumroll......... IT HAS POCKETS! That might be one of the most basic girl things I've said on here in a while, but seriously, find me a girl that doesn't like hidden pockets in dresses. Another reason I really love this dress is because of the versatility. It looks super cute dressed down with white converse sneakers, and also really cute with wedges or simple sandals like the ones I'm wearing here. 

Let me rave about these shoes for a second. I was worried they would be uncomfortable, but gosh was I wrong. The platform on the front of the shoe makes them really comfortable and easy to walk in. Definitely a great summer shoe staple because they are so versatile, in my opinion.

Last - I've been thinking about doing a Q&A post - either on here or via Insta Story. Is that something you all would be interested in? If so, let me know if the comments if 1. You'd be interested, 2. What question(s) you have for me, and 3. If you'd prefer a blog post or Insta Story.

Olive Bell Sleeve Dress

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a good weekend! What do you think of the new Sweet & Sauer site design? I love it and I'm so excited with how it turned out. 

How cute is this dress? Not only do I love the color (olive seems to be a hot color lately - it does come in two other colors though), but I love that it's lightweight - perfect for this time of year as we transition from Spring to Summer. Also, it has cute bell sleeves which are totally trending right now, and I love the detail in the front. Definitely worth adding to your wardrobe (plus it's 50% off!) I decided to pair a bralette with this dress, but you could totally get away with not wearing one. Dresses like this are a wardrobe staple because they are easy to just throw on and dress up or down with the right shoes and accessories. 

Now to address a few things that I feel may come up in comments.... If you read my latest health post, you know that things aren't well in the cancer department (I'll do a full in-depth update really soon). First, due to the current state of my cancer, I have lost a lot of weight, so yes I'm aware how skinny my legs look and no I'm not promoting being this thin. It actually really sucks and I wish I could do more about it. Second, you may or may not notice a rash on my chest in these photos (and if you don't here, you definitely will in future photos) and that is a side effect of one of my cancer meds. I thought about trying to edit it out, but that wouldn't be authentic of me. I never want to become a blogger that over-edits or doesn't stay true to who they are.

That's all I have for now! Thanks for stopping by :)

Faux Fur Pink Coat

Hi friends! Sorry for going MIA once again. Turns out when you don't feel well, even the simplest tasks become a challenge. I've gotten some questions about what the latest is with my health, if I got approved for the LA study, etc. As of now I don't have any definitive answers or what our game plan is. Once I have an update I'll be sure to share :) Thank you again for all your love and support, it truly keeps me going. 

Now for this outfit - how cute is this coat? I know some of you are probably thinking it's a little ridiculous to wear a thick faux fur coat like this in the Spring, but Colorado isn't done giving us surprise snow days, so I haven't packed up my fun winter layers just yet. I also feel like this is a piece that can be worn into the spring and transition you from those cooler temps. It's a fun statement piece you can layer over anything (think dresses, shorts, etc.). Also, this particular jacket isn't as heavy as you'd think so you definitely won't be burning up. Plus, this blush color is so trendy right now making it that much more of a great transition piece. 

Let's chat about these jeans for a second. If you follow me on Snapchat (@mallorysauer), then you may have seen me struggle to get this pair off because the ankles are so tight. That is still 100% true. I don't know why the ankles are so tight, but it definitely makes them challenging to get on and off. The rest of the jeans fit great (from the calf up). It could just be me but I wanted to give a fair warning. Other than the tight ankle issue, I love these jeans. They look so cute with everything. The distressing is so cute and the wash/color is perfect. And they're under $60! I'm determined to find a way to make them work.

That's all I have for now. Have a great week my loves!
