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?

NYC OOTD


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!

Island Dreaming OOTD

I spent the last week soaking up the sun and relishing in the perks of an all-inclusive resort in the Bahamas.  Of course it was extremely hard to come back to real life after spending time in paradise, so for my first day back home I chose to infuse some island flavor into my look.  This palm print short set from the Gap was the perfect 'fit to remind me of my vacation, and it matched well with my new tan!
