Closet Strategy: Romper

| On
12:00 PM
Today I want to try styling my romper in different ways. When these first became popular I was kind of repulsed by them because they reminded me of onesies that babies wear. Now that I've found one that is super comfortable and cute-looking to boot, I wanted to maximize the wears I get on this. So here are some ways to wear the romper:

Outfit 1: Fall Ready





If you're not ready to completely commit to a romper, why not wear them like shorts instead? Layer a sweater over the romper to fight the Autumn chill and slip into a cute pair of ankle boots  for look that is perfect for Fall. 








Top: Forever 21 sweater (similar here)
Accessories: Bershka bag (similar by Lulu Townsend), Geneva watch, Forever 21 bangle (similar here), Loulou's bracelets, Forever 21 belt (came with the romper)
Shoes: ASOS boots (similar here)


Outfit 2: Smart-Casual





I think blazers are the solution to everything! I love how this oversized blazer manages to make such a whimsical piece more mature. I added heeled oxfords and a satchel to keep the smart vibe constant. This would be a great outfit for a coffee date with friends






Top: H&M boyfriend blazer (similar here)
Accessories: Forever 21 belt (came with romper), Geneva watch, Forever 21 satchel (similar here), Forever 21 glasses (similar by MLC)

Shoes: Payless oxfords (similar by Spring Step)

So tell me what you think of my outfits! And if you have some ideas or blog posts of the ways you styled your rompers, let me know/link me up! I love seeing your creativity through your comments :]

The Classics | Double Denim and Statement Necklace

Good Monday, lovelies!


Here's a classic ensemble - double denim and pearls! I feel like chambray with white jeans has definitely become a new classic look, and with good reason too! It's so casual, fresh and effortlessly chic. 
I'm actually in the market for a new chambray shirt. I really like the one I'm wearing here but I want one with a lighter wash because it'd be perfect for warmer days. Any recommendations?

Happy Sunday lovelies! Time for another Currently post!

Currently

  • Obsessed with: Kate Spade Agenda - I've posted this on Instagram earlier this month and I've been waiting for this week to use it! Super excited! The inside of it is so pretty and clean and whimsically pretty! 
  • Reading: America Again: Re-Becoming the Greatness we Never Weren't - Another book that's coming off my summer reading list. It's been a hilarious journey so far. If you love the satirical greatness that is Stephen Colbert, you will love this book. 
  • Wearing: Formula X in Incandescent - I totally fell in love with this color when I stopped by my local Sephora. It's such a summery cantaloupe color that I just can't get enough of. The formula is out of this world as well! Highly recommend!
  • Watching: Doctor Who - I am currently rewatching the series to get ready for Peter Capaldi's takeover in August. Ahh a Summer with the Doctor. Super fabulous! 
  • Listening To: St Vincent's Rattlesnake - I seriously can't stop listening to this song. I have it on repeat on my iPhone and listen to it 50 times a day! It's just such an interesting song with a very intense yet summery vibe.
  • Eating: Luke's Lobsters - I found this little gem in Bethesda recently and it's been taking a toll on my wallet (it's lobsters after all). I don't care though. These lobsters are delicious!
Thanks for reading!

Don't You Step on My Blue Suede Shoes | Ankle Strap Pumps and Peplum Top

It's finally Friday, lovelies!


When I first saw these shoes at Forever 21 I seriously ran from the other side of the store to get my hands on them. The color, the shape, the pointed heel, the suede material - everything about them is perfect!! I wanted to highlight them in my outfit today so I kept the rest of my outfit fairly neutral. I added an orange clutch to play off of the blue. 
I've actually never owned a pair of blue shoes before - I'm curious as to what you guys would wear with these. The possibilities seem endless, don't you think?

Lucky Print | Printed Shorts and Breezy Shirt

Happy Wednesday my dears!



It's the return of my favorite shorts! I was feeling black-and-white today so I paired these shorts with a loose white shirt. Simple and chic, no? I feel like I got lucky with these shorts - palm and other tropical prints weren't exactly in style when I got them but now they're on trend!






Also, I have some good news! I finally fixed my Google Friend Connect widget! I know some of you guys had issues following me on GFC. Apparently, after the launch of Google+, blogger added the Google+ Follower gadget to replace the GFC gadget. For a while, I wasn't sure how to re-add the widget but I finally figured it out. Basically, new readers can now follow me on GFC! Yay!!

Happy Monday, lovelies!



There's just something about this dress that makes me think of going to a fancy tea with other sophisticated ladies. During my time abroad in England I came to really appreciate afternoon tea time. Shame we don't have it here in the States.

Onions Have Layers | Blush Blazer and Layered Skirt

Sunday, Funday beautiful readers!


When I saw this skirt the first thing that popped into my head was a line from Shrek - "Onions have layers. Ogres have layers. We both have layers!"
This skirt looks nothing like Shrek, of course, but the layered part of it never fails to remind me of that particular line and bring about a chuckle.






Have a great weekend!

I'm Lying on the Moon | Ukulele and Little Red Dress

| On
12:00 PM
Happy Monday lovelies!




One of my favorite films this year was Her starring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johanson's voice. There's a song in the movie that was nominated for an Oscar called The Moon Song. It was originally written and performed by Karen O and featured Ezra Koenig. At the Oscars, Karen O wore a gorgeous red dress and sang so beautifully - I wanted to channel her elegance and quiet romance in my outfit today. 








I also learned how to play the song on ukulele as well - perhaps I should make a video of the cover. What do you guys think?

Dress: H&M dress (similar by Charlotte Russe)
Accessories: Ohana ukulele, Bershka crossbody (also cute by Deux Lux), H&M bracelet (similar by Forever 21), Geneva watch
Shoes: Kate Spade wedges

Hot and Cold | High Waisted Shorts and Aqua Tank

Wondrous Wednesday, lovelies!




Lately, I don't know how to dress myself. It's incredibly hot outside but as soon as I walk indoors the air conditioner is on at full blast, making me cold. I think that's why I keep getting sick! The heat outside makes me sweat, the cold indoors makes my nose run, which makes me cough, etc. 








Anybody out there with a solution to the Hot and Cold problem?
