OOTD: Romp it!

Here's a super cute romper from Target ($20). They had lots of colors (black, grey, brown, blue, purple), but not as many 'fun' colors as you would expect for a romper from Target....get with it's almost summer!

Tan cardigan: Old Navy $30
Brown belt: Target $23
Cognac wedges: Target 'Elianna' $25
Silver ball bracelet: Ralph Lauren $14

OOTD: Linen..Hate it or Love it!

It's the end of May and we've had a few days here and there that have hit just under 90 degrees! I'm never one to complain about warm weather...

That is, when it comes to cold weather...I'll admit I complain day and night about how I wish I lived closer to the equator..I said it

So when we reached a few hot days this past week I reach for the lightest, breeziest material I own that can still be worn to work...linen.

I have a love/hate relationship with this fabric that I seem to always forget about when buying spring/summer items. It's comfortable and light, but wrinkle free it is not!

Sit down for about 5 minutes and you'll get yourself an annoying wrinkle for the whole word to see. Nonetheless, these OOTD are post-work so please excuse the millions of wrinkles...even my dog notices the wrinkles haha. ;)

OOTD: Splash of Black

These are actually from awhile ago...prob 3 weeks ago. Notice how each outfit has alot of black in it. I realized these were from a week that the weather was crappy/rainy. Sometimes you don't even realize how the weather/your surroundings affect your outfits until you line em up!

OOTD: Chunky Forever21 Necklace

I've had this chunky silver necklace ($17)from Forever21 for awhile now. I LOVE how it can dress up a plain t-shirt so I can wear it to work on a casual Friday. Below you'll see a few different ways I've dressed it up while keeping casual.

Florals/prints are always a tricky thing for me to wear. I love love love a little touch of floral, but I have to be sure not to over do it. Otherwise I can end up looking heavy or like a grandma..or even worse...both!

Update on Cynthia Vincent for Target Wedges

Unfortunately, after much searching and invading Targets within a certain radius of my home..I never found a pair of the Cynthia Vincent wedges.

find a great pair of cognac wedges instead! I've had my eye on the Target Merona Elliana wedges. Despite the thick straps and 3" heel, they're surprisingly comfortable and the sole is super soft. The height of the heel was the one thing that would've made me hesitate to buy the Cynthia Vincent's..if I had ever found them lol.

'Little' words of wisdom

This morning I saw alot of hype about a recent pic of Kim Kardashian wearing high waisted jeans that apparently made her look like she was wearing 'Mom Jeans.'

Now if people are saying these are Kim's fat jeans then I've got a long treadmill run ahead of me. ;)

I came across this on Fashion for the Economically Challenged's blog. It's not even a quote, just something she said in one of her posts about weight...

After all, one lady's "fat jeans" are another's "skinny jeans."

No mas margaritas...

Even though this post is a day late...HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO!

Last night I met up with some girlfriends for some MUCH needed margaritas. And let me tell you, I had some of the largest frozen margaritas I've ever seen. I DID take my camera w/ me but the battery was dead of course!

Hope you all had a good one!

I'm in love....

...with this TopShop dress....$84

Unfortunately, I'm not a big fan of 'tube top' dresses or tube tops in general. While most people wish they had bigger chests, I'd rather go down a size. Hence my horrible ;p

But because my chest is larger I find wearing a strapless style dress or shirt tend to either not hold up or squish my chest together and inward, giving it an overall awkward and misshapen look.

HOWEVER, before I ban all strapless articles of clothing, my last resort would be to try a 'sweetheart' top. And this TopShop dress might just be what I've been looking for.
