Heat Wave Romper

The Northeast has been nothing short of brutal when it comes to heat and humidity. Even Lubi couldn’t take it and he loves the heat! What does one wear? Nothing that touches you anywhere! Enter the romper. I found this adorable little number at the #ZaraSale. How can you go wrong for a whopping $13.00? It’s super light weight and how cute are the tassles on the sides? It’s been my go to for these scorching days. This one is sold out online but maybe you’ll get lucky and find one in the store. Also totally obsessed with these rose gold Birkenstocks. Actually, I’m pretty much obsessed with everything rose gold. The soft footbed keeps your feet cool and comfortable too!

A Different Flow

A Different Flow

Love. This. Trend. Flowy pants rock. It feels so fresh to wear something other than my skinny jeans. Not giving them up, but a break is nice and they’re much more light and airy in this awful northeast heat and humidity. The rope belt actually came with the pants. I usually get rid of belts that are attached at purchase because for the most part they’re cheesy, but go Zara ’cause this one’s adorable! Confession… I have to wear heels, platforms, flatforms or something so that I don’t trip on the pants! The high waist is also the only way you’ll ever see me in a crop top. I’m not one to walk around with my midriff saying hello to the world. I admit that it took me a while to embrace the crop. I was having such a hard time with the concept. I’m the flowy top girl. The fact that this one wasn’t too fitted was the selling point and the lace pattern made for a fun mix with those adorable little polka dots. Say hi to Lubi! Enjoy!

How Have You Been?

Did anyone else get totally overwhelmed by the holiday season, family events, stuff going on? Not to mention not enough daylight hours to take pictures! Ugh! Sorry I haven’t been around. I haven’t even had a chance to share this amazing wrap coat/cape with all of you. You see, the Zara closest to me was closed for what seemed like an eternity (or three months) to revamp the store. The outcome was totally worth it because it’s beautiful now, but the withdrawal symptoms were kind of hard to deal with (#bloggerproblems). This was one of the first things I bought when they reopened. It’s roomy enough to put great layers underneath. You know all those sweaters you own that don’t fit under a proper coat? Problem solved!

Truly Madly Deeply

This shirt has been haunting me at Urban Outfitters for weeks. Want, want, want. Should I spend that much on a tee shirt? No — I should wait for it to go on sale. I so didn’t. That’s the advantage of having birthday money — you can spend it on fun items just because! I’m not sure what grabbed here but it was love at first sight. It just looked so cool hanging there. Notice I had to tie knots in the bottom because I’m so short! Apparently the woman behind me in line at TJ Maxx wasn’t so enamoured of said shirt when I was wearing it a few days later. She actually almost yelled at me! She exclaimed, “What the hell are you wearing? That’s no way for a young lady to go out in public! You can’t do any better?” I just giggled.

Sunset in the Secret Garden

There’s a special little place in the front of mum and dad’s house that mum calls the secret garden. She read the book to me when I was young. We had some time before supper to take pictures as the sun was setting and figured it was the perfect place. I couldn’t resist this cute egg hatching a baby dinosaur — too whimsical!

I found this cobalt blue top and immediately thought about wearing it with my Jimmy Choo sandals. I don’t get to wear them that often and even though we weren’t going anywhere fancy I decided to go for it. I figured wearing them with distressed jeans would dress them down a little. I love mixing fancy things with distressed jeans or something really casual. It just makes them that much cooler.

The New Girl(s)

I know. It’s been a while. Sorry about that. I had to take some time to recover from my most recent surgery. After almost a year since my breast cancer diagnosis I’m ready to introduce you to the new girls. I finally have my permanent implants and after seeing 27 doctors (OK, slight exaggeration) this week, it looks as if I’m healthy! It’s also so much easier to get dressed! While I’m not completely done, I’m hoping the worst is behind me and I can start to get my life back.

This outfit has a couple trends encompassed within. A crop top and boyfriend jeans. I have to admit that the crop top trend sent shivers down my spine. Really? I’m not one to walk around half naked! Done properly, or at least what I deem to be appropriately, I’ve found that it can actually be cute. This top, for example sticks with my whole “flowy” personality and barely shows any midriff unless you catch a breeze. Even then, only the slightest sliver of skin pops out. Perfect! I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect loose, comfy boyfriend jeans for a while. Believe it or not — Gap! Haven’t been in there in ages, but I’m so in love with these. The looseness and the shredding is also a much cooler (literally, as in temperature) option for summer. Buy them a size too big for extra effect.
