The Romper You Need This Summer

I’ve been loving striped clothing lately. Such a nautical and summery style. This off the shoulder romper gives such a cute and flirty style while still being casual enough for day to day errands. You’ll notice on my blog I go for not only functionality and comfort but how well my outfits work while wrangling kids all day, lol.

I’m always a little skeptical when ordering online or even buying rompers in-store because I don’t know how they will fit since I am tall. I’ve had some rompers that were literal underwear on me, lol. (So disappointing for us tall girls) but this romper fit so well I was surprised. It’s not too short in the bottoms so it covers my butt. I don’t feel uncomfortable or like everything is hanging out. The material has a little stretch but still fits nicely.

You can wear it with so many options, sneakers for a casual vide, sandals for a little more casual cute or heels for a night out. I’m currently on the hunt for the perfect black heel that goes with everything. But I paired this one with 2 sneaker options for a more casual feel.

Holiday Love

image
I hope everyone had a great holiday. I love the colors Red and Black. My favorite by far. So naturally those were my Christmas colors by choice.
image

What better with a feminine outfit to add a bit of a rocker edge so I’m able to keep up with the tiny tots as they run around with new toys then black boots lol. I love tulle skirts. If I could wear one everyday I would lol. Short, long, with T-shirts, button downs, crop tops, heels, boots, flats; doesn’t matter.
image

I hope you enjoyed this holiday ootd as much as I did. I think pairing it with a simple winged eyeliner and red lips was the perfect holiday look.

My Top 6 Fall/Winter Nail Colors

I figured I would pick 6 fall/Winter nail colors that I was absolutely loving. I hate uneven numbers so naturally I rounded up one. HA! Anyway, I love black, nude and grey. Those are my all time favorites for fall or any season really, so I figured I would pick some of those colors as well as a few others I have been loving on my nails this season.
image

First we have this red with a touch of black. Both these colors are kind of sheer so if you want true to bottle color I suggest 2 coats of these. Here I only have one coat for each color. It is Wet N Wild polish in I Red A Good Book and Ebony Hates Chris
image

I’m in love with this matte grey color. The polish dries matte so if you want it shiny I suggest letting it dry fully and then using a shiny top coat because I notice if you paint clear over it to quickly the matte seeps through in some areas. It is SinfulColors polish in My Turn
image

This color is a little more edgy. It’s very dark but it’s not exactly black it’s more of a purple ink black. This one dries slightly shiny and I added another coat of clear for more shine. This is SinfulColors in Inkwell
image

Now there had to be a nude color in here of course because I love my nude everything (no pun intended, lol) I have a nude color that’s my all time favorite which is SinfulColors in Vacation Time but I thought I would try a new one to see if I can find a new love. It’s a bit of a nude orange color like an autumn leaf. This one is SinfulColors in Bellini
image

Then of course the color of the season seems to be a color that was tabu after Labor Day for years but I’ve always wondered why because it’s so awesome when done right, lol. That color is of course white and these nails are White Hot! This is SinfulColors in Snow Me White.
image

Finally this is a color that’s all over in fall. Whether it’s in the leaves or an outfit. Gold is like a staple in my wardrobe now for fall. Plus it looks great with tan skin. So this color was a really pretty gold I picked up. It’s SinfulColors in Gold Medal.
image

Well ladies those are my top 6 nail colors for the fall/winter. Hope you enjoyed this post and try some or all of the colors. There are a lot of sales going on in Walgreens and CVS on makeup and nail polish so now is the perfect time to grab some new colors. (Any excuse to shop right ladies, lol)

Unexpected Find

image

This outfit was actually planned around my skirt. I actually had this for well over 3 months before I actually decided to wear it lol. I passed by it like 4 times in the thrift store before I actually got it. Then I just went for it. Thinking “Well if I don’t wear it I can always just donate it again lol.”

So here we are 4 months later. I needed something to wear to run some errands and do some shopping. I wanted to be pulled together but comfortable. So I pulled out this skirt and paired it with my Forever 21 bodysuit and thrifted tan vest (I’m obsessed with thrifting) and put on my moccasins my grandma got me a few years ago from I believe she said JCPENNYS or Macys one or the other.

image

The skirt is really flowy and breathable and I love the pattern. A good find all together I think though. Well that’s the whole outfit. I wish my day was as easy as this outfit was to put together lol. I hope you are all having a beautiful week. I’m sick in bed today but at least I got in a bike ride this morning lol.

Thrifty Thursdays

image

Hello Dolls. Ok so I know today isn’t Thursday but this outfit was from Thursday so it sort of counts , lol. So anyone who knows me, knows I love thrifting. The excitement you get when you find a bargain or that perfect one of a kind piece. Especially for DIY projects (which I love by the way).

image

So I happened upon this skirt the other day and thought it was so cute. I grabbed it not even knowing what I would pair it with lol.

image

I mixed prints and materials a little on this one and loved the outcome. Some stripes and a little jean. It came out pretty cute. I will definitely post some DIY and more of my thrift finds.

Hooka Night

20130817-002854.jpg

When people ask me what my style is I usually say whatever I like. Because I don’t feel I really have one. Aside from the fact that I love dresses, I really don’t like defining my style because it’s always changing.

20130817-003002.jpg

I can be in jeans one minute, a dress, sweatpants or cowboy boots and jean shorts the next. I bought this dress 2 years ago from amiclubwear.com and never got to wear it lol. But here it is now, I figured it was casual enough for hooka night lol.

A Midi Love Affair

20130812-004919.jpg

Ok so I said my obsession would become a real thing lol. I’m in love with midi skirts and dresses. I have some in my online shopping cart right now lol. What a coincidence that this one says LOVE lol.

I never buy clothes because of label or price tag. I buy them because I love them. My style represents who I am and I feel that if you have to buy expensive things to look good your doing something wrong.

Don’t get me wrong I love some high end things as well which I will feature soon. But I want my blog to be for everyone. No matter what your pockets look like.

20130812-005359.jpg

My clutch I have had since last Christmas and actually this was my first time using it because I forgot I had it lol.

20130812-005433.jpg

This skirt is also cotton, very breathable and very comfy. I have also developed a love for sneaker wedges and crop tops lol.
