Even though I wore this outfit during the summer (so sad right?!) this outfit could most definitely be used as a transition outfit into the fall! This particular day it just happened to be rainy and cool, but it’d be great for when the cooler weather sets in for good. I’m so obsessed with the jacket!! I’ve wanted a jacket like this for so long and I FINALLY found one I loved at Old Navy! It’s…

{OOTD} I FOUND A BLACK ROMPER!

{OOTD} I FOUND A BLACK ROMPER!

I am very excited to inform you all that I have indeed (after over a year of searching for one) found a black romper!!!!!

If you read my post a little while back about my scalloped romper, you would see that I was still looking for a black one, and as I was shifting though a TJMaxx a couple towns over while my friend from New Orleans was visiting, I found this adorable one! Crochet detailing,…

I swear I have a 6th sense for Starbucks…I’m obsessed.

Anywho, while a friend was visiting me, we ventured down to Cape Cod (not many Starbucks there unfortunately) and while checking out the Christmas Tree Shop in Hyannis, we found a Starbucks!

For our day of shopping/exploring the Cape, I decided to wear a flowy dress; easy, cute, and very comfortable. Thank you TJMaxx!

Maxi skirts and dresses are perfect in every way. Not only are they stylish, but they’re comfy, easy, and they look good on just about anyone! I bought this black maxi skirt from TJMaxx for only $20 and it’s so comfy! I love how I can dress it up with a cute statement necklace, or go more casual with just a simple tee for work. It’s perfect for all seasons too; not too heavy for spring and summer, but can definitely be transitioned into my fall/winter wardrobe.

I have been on the hunt for the perfect romper for a very long time. I originally set out for a black one (I have a fedora with black trim that would go perfect!) but I haven’t had much luck. But as I was browsing TJMaxx, I found this scalloped (!!!!!) navy one that I fell in love with! It’s one of my favorite colors and its scalloped..I mean c’mon, what’s not to love?! It’s perfect in that it can be dressed up or dressed down.

To dress it up, I added a J.Crew statement necklace and white wedges, which I got for $6 at the Christmas Tree Shop! Can’t beat that price.

To dress it down, I paired it with a denim jacket, long chain necklace, and leather sandals. It’s very versatile!

This romper gives me a great excuse to get dressed up and go into Boston with friends, am I right? ;)

PS As mentioned before, I still REALLY want a black romper. I just don’t want the shorts part to be super duper short, so if any of you lovely bloggers/readers find one, let me know!

I am LOVING my new jeggings from AE. They are the high waisted dark wash jegging. I originally went in to try their new sky high jegging but I thought the threading and zipper were awkwardly too long, so I opted for the regular high rise jegging. There’s not much of a difference, other than where it hits at the waist (and the length of the zipper). The sky high reached just below my belly button, and the ones I bought hit a little lower. They are also the most comfortable pants I have ever owned. So everyone needs to go out and buy a pair NOW. (I might be a little biased, because I really only buy my jeans from American Eagle, but regardless…GO BUY SOME!) I also love my cropped gold and pink strip tee from Aerie. I got it for only $10 too! And brown leather sandals are a must in any wardrobe because they legit go with everything. I love these ones because they have gold buckles and I’m a big fan of gold :)

Also, can we just take a moment to acknowledge how cool this background is?! The photographer in me was freaking out inside when my friend and I found it the other day. It’s a brick wall with chalk on the side of an elementary school. Definitely coming back to it in the future!

As we finish up the room, I want to give everyone bits and pieces of the complete project. Roselande comes home a week from today, so in celebration of that, I will post the final product the day after she arrives { so she’ll see it first ;) } I am so excited with how it is turning out. I just settled on furniture arrangement today, and started my decoration process as well. So here is the first…

a brief update & what’s to come . . .

Hello friends!

Ah it’s been awhile since I’ve last posted. One would think I would have more time, not being in school, but it’s just the opposite! But I finally have some down time from catching up with friends, work, and such. And there’s a lot I want to share with you so stay tuned.

A little while back, I posted about how my family is adopting from Haiti, and that we would be doing a room…

Liebster Award!
liebster

So Amanda over at Brunette With a Bow(go check her out!) nominated me for a Liebster Award! For those who do not know what this is (I had no idea either) it’s basically a way to find new blogs and help promote bloggers who have a small following. From what I gather (and this varies from blog to blog but I’m following Amanda’s example), you post 7 facts about you, answer the 7 questions the…

I am SO SORRY. I have been MIA for practically a month. Preparing for finals on top of work and multiple other things are just killing me (but that’s life, so I don’t really have an excuse do I?) But I promise I’ll be back with more posts coming your way in the next week. I have so much to catch up on! One of those things being nominated for a liebster award (to be honest I had no idea what this…
