When I was a junior in high school, we had a winter formal that my friends and I looked forward to for weeks. It was a semi-formal, as most of the girls wore knee-length (and shorter) dresses, but I opted for something different. I wore this black halter jumpsuit that resembled someone between John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever and Elvis circa 1972. The legs were cropped short, more like capris, and the waist had a see-through lace mesh detail. Oh man, I thought that jumpsuit was it.
Fast-forward a decade and I still love a good black jumpsuit. They're flattering, chic, and can be worn year round when layered. I mean, I wore mine to winter formal you guys. If I could go back in time I would've probably opted for a coat as well, as I recall freezing my arms and calves off (thanks, capris). The look styled above is definitely intended for summer, but swap the sandals for pumps and you could totally go hit up a high school dance.
My parents are currently en route to Houston and we couldn't be more excited! Bear and I spent the afternoon cleaning, then cleaning some more, and then cleaning a little bit. What is it about toddlers that creates a never-ending tornado of dirt, toys, and pee? Bear also ninja-grabbed the Windex while I was cleaning our master bath and took it upon himself to "make shiny" the sitting room rug. Meaning he sprayed the entire thing down with Windex. The antique rug my grandmother gave us. I can't wait to finally see the extra shiny results.
Hope you have a great weekend!
It's no secret that I love fall fashion, really just everything about the season in general. Pumpkin Pie Blizzards at DQ, leaves changing colors, Halloween, cooler temperatures...it's probably my favorite season. September can be a challenging month as far as wardrobe goes because it's still hot outside but we're all ready for sweaters and scarves! An outfit like this is easy and great for these weeks before temperatures really drop. I also love this color palette; neutrals are (as always) a big yes.
Shirtdresses are also a major trend right now, and I'm taking advantage. Not only are they super comfortable, but also flattering on all body types. Win win! And these suede wedge boots for $26? Total steal!
Every girl needs a cute (affordable) outfit for a fun night out! I prefer to splurge on more everyday items like jeans, casual tops, and staple jewelry. I've found that when it comes to outfits for special occasions, I usually only wear them once or twice. All the more reason to hunt for a good deal!
You can never go wrong with a LBD, and pops of color keep it fun and fresh. I love the idea of for a bachelorette party, everyone wearing black & the bride in white. This outfit would be perfect, & also very flattering.
Uh oh. Bear just came up to me with pen all over his face. Time for a bath!
