Black and White

jumpsuit x SP 4 Happy Monday! Wasn’t the weekend too short as always?!! Thankfully some outfits work equally well from weekend to weekday. This dark light-weight jersey romper perfectly executes that attitude. The truth is I love this comfortable romper. Whether you’re tall, petite or curvy, it works well with all body types. I absolutely love the cuffs at the bottom, and even better I can think of a million different ways to wear it. It makes a great date outfit paired with heels plus a bold lipstick. Or add a structured jacket to make it work friendly. Summer-time does mean fun and light work-wear, right?!  I think the next way I wear it will be with a denim shirt tied around my waist and chunky boots. Continue reading

Casual Denim

casual x SP Let’s just say no matter how many pretty dresses I wear I am a sucker for a good fitting denim. You can easily dress it up with a blouse and heels or go for a casual look paired with sandals. I wore this outfit last Sunday for a casual Sunday-Funday date with the husband. I love the pairing of the flowy peasant blouse with the flattering boot cut jean. Perfect outfit to flaunt my new haircut. Continue reading

It is always wise to keep a comfy cover up with you. I rely on this sweater way more than I planned to when I was buying it. My go-to summer sweater. Summertime ease x SP 4Today is one of those rare days where it rains and shines at the exact same time. It’s killer on a good hair day but sans the hair issue, it’s really quite nice. Warm sunshine, cool rain. It could be a lot worse — I mean it could be super windy. I’ll take misty rain over wild wind any day of the week. (If you’ve ever wondered why I touch my hair so much in posts it’s because it’s windy and I’m trying to hold my hair down so I don’t look crazy). Continue reading

Tropical Vacation

I love summer. It means trips to all my favorite street fairs and theme parks. This romper was one of those random finds at Forever 21. I saw this adorable print and I knew I had to pick it up. I just thought how perfect for summer. ‘Island chic’ is my current love in the summer trends.
