ROMPER, ROMPHIM, ROMP-ALL!

Details: TJ Maxx/Marshalls Bell Sleeve Honey Punch Romper, here |

So, the guys are getting on the romper wagon now, huh? I’m completely fine with this, but I will say that everything that guys have said about rompers, like that they hate them because they look like something a toddler would wear or that they’re not flattering on anyone in anyway shape or form and look more creepy than sexy.  After seeing rompers on men, it makes me wonder if they were right all along. I mean not ALL men can pull off a RompHim, and it is somewhat off-putting that they look like hairy adult babies runinng around. But to each his own, right? Despite my growing distaste for the recent RompHim trend, I am certain I will not be ditching my rompers any time soon. In fact, I just scored this bell-sleeve romper from Marshall’s and couldn’t love more if I tried. Unlike most offices, mine doesn’t implement a strict dress code which means rompers are acceptable in the workplace–woohoo!! And the fact that this one has long sleeves makes it even more loveable because it allows me to combat the ice chamber conditions inside the office, while still looking like I’m acknowleding the fact that it’s spring when I walk outside. Its floral pattern is tasteful and broken up by the lace detail in the middle, makes this one of my favorites this season. Cheers to rompers for all,  we’re truly breaking fashion boundaries!

THE HEAT MADE ME DO IT

Details: LOFT Pleated Duet Dress, here | DSW two-toned sandals, similar here |

I recently went on a shopping binge at LOFT and came across this flowy pleated dress. The heat made me do it! It was so hot last week, and I was in desperate need of cute dresses and lightweight tops to keep me from getting heat stroke. It was basically prescribed by my doctor. It’s too late now anyway, the damage is done and I have some new summer clothes to show for it. Lately, the LOFT has been surprising me. I used to never think twice about walking in there because everything always seemed to be boxy and ill-fitting. I don’t know what they’ve been doing lately, but keep it! Not only do have they offer on-trend styles but the fit seems to be much more accurate. Plus, they have an awesome petite section so I’m able to pull off a mid-length dress like this because they offer it in petite–score! I’ve noticed lately, in my old age that the quality of your clothing means more than quantity, but having a lot of quality clothes is always better–I can’t help myself! I wish that we were experiencing that unseasonable heat this week, so I can rock this dress. It’s one that I would wear two days in a row–it’s that good! So, the lesson of the day: if you haven’t been into LOFT in a while, or ever because you thought it was outdated or ill-fitting, go on and stop in; I guarantee that you’ll find something you just have to have.

Going Gingham for Spring

DSC_0198editedDSC_0197edited (1)DSC_0204editedDSC_0237editedDSC_0223DSC_0219DSC_0250Details: Gingham Rayon-Twill Shirtdress c/o J.Jill, here | Black suede Over-the-Knee suede boots, similar here |

Happy First Day of Spring! It’s finally here to stay now, right? I am honestly so sick of the cold weather, but I think we’re in the clear, I just checked out the forecast for this week and we’re looking at mild temps and hitting 60-degrees on Saturday! Can we go to the beach yet? Well, it has been difficult for me to shoot in the cold, but this weekend I managed to get some shots in. I was able to bear my legs a bit twith this black and white gingham rayon-twill shirtdress from J.Jill. It’s super comfortable and I styled it with my trusted OTK boots so that I didn’t have to resort to tights. It’s really lightweight and easy to style; I’m excited for things to heat up so I can wear it to the office and even the BEACH! Sometimes gingham can be overwhelming, but when I slipped this on I didn’t find it to be excessive or reminiscent of a picnic blanket–it just works!

Enjoy the spring weather from here on and out, lovelies!
