Stripes + Maxi OOTD

This look features two of my wardrobe staples--a striped shirt, and a basic black skirt.  Stripes are a very friendly pattern,  playing nicely with both solids and other prints, so a well-fitting striped top like this one is the perfect outfit starter.  This black maxi skirt was a clearance find from Target and happens to be the best maxi skirt I've ever worn. I have a hard time finding a maxi that is the proper length for my short legs, and without all the extra volume that many pleated versions have.  Hopefully I can go back and snag the print version

Come Out and Play(suit)

Part of what drew me to this romper was the fact that it reminded me of something from my childhood. Despite it's feminine appeal and it being pretty short, I can totally picture a fashionable mom and her stylish toddler (Bey & Blue Ivy?) having a mommy-and-me moment with matching playsuits.
As I wore this look, I couldn't help but let out my inner child and found myself giggling, skipping over cracks in the sidewalk, and telling the nearest adult when I had to go potty lol. Sure, I could reach the rear zipper on my own, but it was so much faster and easier to get a little help from my husband.

A Midi Moment

Lately my style has been all about easy, flowing pieces, and this Asos midi dress definitely fits the bill.
Is it me, or does this dress look like the shorter, younger, cooler version of this floor length number Kim Kardashian was spotted in recently?

Last weekend, my husband and I hosted a Father's Day cookout at our house...when I tell you it was hot out, it was HOT.  Apparently it wasn't hot enough for me to reconsider wearing all black (smh), but the heat did result in a cute little make-shift bun hairstyle and short skater skirt.

Kimo-No OOTD

I am loving the kimono trend this Spring/Summer, but because I have been on a self-imposed shopping ban I cannot make the splurge to buy one :( But no worries, by shopping my closet I was able to achieve a similar look with this floral high-low number by Jessica Simpson.  I wore it this past weekend to a family cookout, and even wore it on vacation as a swimsuit cover-up.  Just as a heads up, you will probably see this top on the blog again a few more times in the next couple of months!
