Bow Detail Top

Hello, friends! I hope this week has brought you some gorgeous spring weather. While I am definitely soaking up every warm day we get, we have had our fair share of cool breezy days (thanks to KC & it’s cray weather), so I have been taking advantage of transition pieces. This bow detail top is one of my recent favorites. I love that its lightweight and has partially open arms, but is still just warm enough for cooler days. Not to mention, the bow detail and affordable price are always a bonus! This cute top comes in 4 other colors, and I can’t wait to pair it with denim shorts as it gets warmer!

Happy first day of spring, everyone! I hope your weekend was great! I just got back from a little spring break trip to Dallas, and the weather was amazing, so it was perfect timing to come home to warm spring weather in KC. We spent our weekend strolling through some of our favorite shops, relaxing poolside, and patio hopping from one brunch to the next! (Stay tuned for a quick Dallas travel guide on a few of my fav places!)

On Saturday we spent the day at Highland Park Village (my heaven on earth, ha!) and I wore this little white dress that I am obsessed with! Ruffles + bow detail + off the shoulder= the perfect little white dress! And it’s under $100! I also love that it can be worn two ways–off the shoulder, or normal (although it becomes a little too short if you’re taller like me) It’s the perfect dress to add a pop of color too, or a fun statement earring, and I got so many compliments on it throughout the day! We went out for mexican that night, so I switched out my wedges for these colorful sandals! For size reference, I would order a size up. I found it runs a little small, and with this style dress, it can’t hurt to have a little extra room/flowiness. I am wearing a medium. Also, like many white dresses, it’s pretty sheer, but it was perfect with a nude half slip underneath! I’ve already got a list of different ways I want to style this dress, so I know it will be on repeat!

Thank you all so much for stopping by!

Happy Wednesday, everyone! We’re halfway to the weekend! I don’t know about you all, but the weather around here has been C.R.A.Z.Y, and I am snow over it and soo ready for a little spring break getaway! We had a few weeks of gorgeous spring weather, and I thought it was here to stay, but then the snow came… let’s just say I couldn’t be more thankful I am headed south in two short days! My mom and sisters and I are packing up for a girls weekend and heading to Dallas, one of our absolute favorite places! I am so looking forward to wearing some of my fav new spring items, and a weekend of good shopping, enjoying all of my favorite restaurants, and warm weather! I thought it would be fun to share my spring break packing list, including a few items that I already own (like that white dress, only $75!), and a few that are on my shopping list!

I would love to here your spring break plans, and if you have any recs for Dallas, I am always looking for fun new spots to try! Be sure to tag along on my travels over on Instagram/Instastories & Snapchat (rachelpuccetti)!

Cheers to the weekend! I am sure you all love a little weekend style as much as I do, so I wanted to share my favorite knotted tee with you all! This tee has been on repeat lately, and it makes for the cutest casual look. Not only am I obsessed with the long, flowy length (perfect for jeans or leggings), but I just love how you can either wear it knotted or loose! I also love that it can be worn off the shoulder, and the open back looks so cute with a lace bralette under.

This knotted tee comes in 4 colors and is only $78, and I am so tempted to grab myself another one! I am planning to take this with me to Dallas for spring break in a few days!

Do any of you have fun spring break plans? I’d love to hear!

Spring Trends I Love

Hello, loves! Today I am here to share a few spring trends that I love. This spring/summer it’s going to be all about the details, with colorful embroidering, beaded sandals, ruffles and pom poms galore! Currently there is nothing cuter to me than a bright embroidered bag paired with a ruffle or off the shoulder top. I am also daydreaming of fun sandals and colorful pom pom details with white dresses as it gets warmer! I wore this look last week to lunch with my mom and sister, and we went to the yummiest (and cutest!) taco place ever, and this outfit was perfect for the occasion! It was sunny and 75 in KC that day, so it was the most perfect patio weather and I can not wait for more days like that soon!

I’ve also found that there are SO many amazing affordable pieces to choose from this coming season. You ladies aren’t going to believe when I tell you that these shoes and this shirt are both under $30, and my clutch is under $100!

Have a great one! Xo, Rachel

Hello, everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. For those of you that don’t know, I am currently planning my first trip to Paris for two weeks at the end of May…eek! With officially less than 100 days to go, Paris is calling!

Not only is it my first time visiting The City of Lights, but it’s also my first time out of the country, so it’s going to be truly magical. As you could guess, it also calls for planning, planning, planning! I wanted to start a series of posts featuring some of my steps leading up to my trip, and what better topic to kick-off with than fashion?

Most our our stay will be during early June, which should call for beautiful spring weather, but I’m prepared for the occasional rain shower and cooler temps. With that being said, I always want to have a coat on hand that will work with whatever I might be wearing that day, and what better option than the classic trench coat? Not only is it perfectly parisian, but it will be easy to travel with, and creates such an effortlessly chic look. One of the key points I love most about traveling with a trench coat is that I can plan on bringing a select handful of dresses, tops, and bottoms, and mix and match different pieces with the coat as needed. This simplifies both packing and outfit planning, and allows me to create multiple looks without overpacking (which I am notorious for, ha!)

I just purchased this trench coat in both this color, and the blush pink (swoon!) and I’m absolutely in love! I’m obsessed with how feminine and pretty they look, and especially love how it appears to have a pleated skirt when the belt is tied in a bow in back! I plan on taking both coats, and pairing them with white, black, navy and red pieces. This pretty lace peplum that I love so much turned out to be the perfect pairing. For size reference, I am wearing an XS and it fits perfectly. I originally ordered S, but they do run a bit large. Also, they are currently 40% off, so there’s no better time to add one to your spring wardrobe!

I hope that you all will enjoy this series, and find it helpful if you’re also planning spring travels. If you have any questions, or specifics you’d like to know about my planning process, please don’t hesitate to ask! For any of you that have been to Paris, I would adore suggestions/tips! Xo, Rachel

The Perfect Striped Off The Shoulder Dress

striped off the shoulder dress rachel puccetti between two coasts perfect striped off the shoulder dress rachel puccetti between two coasts jcrew striped off the shoulder dress rachel puccetti between two coasts navy and white off the shoulder dress rachel puccetti between two coastsDress: J.Crew, Shoes: Marc Fisher, Bag: Gucci (similar here), Sunnies: Karen Walker, Watch: Michele (similar style here), Lips: Lipstick- Ruby Woo, Liner- Cherry

Stripes + bow detail + off the shoulder= the perfect dress for spring! J.Crew always knows the way to my heart, and this little striped off the shoulder dress is one of my most favorite recent purchases. Not only do I love the navy and white stripes, but I’m always drawn to a bow detail! I’m already picturing all of the fun ways that you could style this dress, and I’m loving the idea of it paired with sneakers for a casual, care-free look, or with red Hunter boots on a rainy spring day! Adding a pop of pink would also be perfect for spring/summer! It just keeps getting better too, this dress is under $100! I always love finding new seasonal pieces that your wardrobe and your wallet will thank you for 😉

Thank you all for spending part of your day with me! Xo, Rachel
