Happy Monday! I'm currently blogging from California! I'm out here for work - if you want to see what I'm up to, follow me on Snapchat - username mallorysauer.

I love this all black two-piece look. It's a nice shake up from a traditional maxi. Don't get me wrong, maxi dresses are one of my favorite spring/summer pieces, but I love that a two-piece set breaks up the outfit a bit. Plus you can wear the pieces separately with other items in your closet, giving you more bang for your buck. I decided to mix it up and really step out by wearing a dark lip. I have rocked a nude lip since 2005. We're talking concealer and lip gloss (I know, don't hold it against me) before they even made nude lip colors. It's just been my thing, and anyone that knows me can attest to that. BUT, I'm trying to branch out with lip colors - they're so fun! I loved this super dark vampy color and thought it added extra drama to the all black look. I loved stacking these two GORGEOUS rings for more of a statement look. 

One of my goals for Sweet & Sauer is to share outfits that are simple, but still feel chic and stylish. I find that I'm most attracted to the most simple outfits that have an effortless edge. I like to emulate that with hair, accessories or shoes, or in the case of this out fit, lip color. You don't have to buy fancy extravagant pieces to look good. Sometimes all it takes is a good accessory or a good hair day :) What are some of your favorite ways to add a little extra oomph to an outfit?

Off The Shoulder

Hi friends! Hope your week is going well! Today's look is a little different for me in that I've never really worn a top like this before. I feel like this off the shoulder top is something you either love or hate, no in-between (like cilantro, or chai tea). I happen to love it. It's fun and flirty and perfect for spring. I paired with leather leggings for an edgier look (and because I also happen to live in these pants).

Since the top is a statement in itself, I decided to keep the jewelry simple by layering these delicate Tacori necklaces and bracelets. I love that these pieces are simple, yet still make a statement. And mixing metals is one of my favorite jewelry trends.

Jewelry from Hyde Park Jewelers #WithLove shop: Stacked bar rings 1, 2 / X ring

Happy Monday everyone! Did you have a good weekend? Mine was pretty low key. Did a lot of 'adulting' (aka errands and chores). Saturday, boyfriend and I went to dinner and then drinks at the Hyatt rooftop bar. It was cool to see Denver from a different perspective. Plus I'm having major FOMO wishing I were in New York for fashion week so I wanted to be up high and pretend I was in the big apple. Yes, I am that cheesy. 

This outfit. Oh my gosh. One of my new favorites that I can't wait to wear once the temperature picks up a little. I just love how loose and flowy this dress is. Such an easy and versatile piece - right up my alley. Now this jacket. I absolutely love this piece! It's an effortless piece that makes a statement. The combo of this dress and jacket have a total boho feel - great for spring and totally something I'd wear to a concert. If you've been following my blog for a while then you already know I'm obsessed with these shoes. I seriously wear them all the time. They're cool and, more importantly, comfortable. 

Since the jacket was already such a statement piece, I wanted to keep the jewelry simple. I absolutely LOVE these rings. The thin stacked rings are a trend I'm currently obsessing over, and I especially love mixing metals for a fun twist. The X ring was such a cool piece, and different than your traditional cocktail ring. These pieces are definitely 'treat yo self' pieces, and if you're a #girlboss, then you deserve that.
