To be honest, I’ve never been crazy about rompers. They’ve become so popular as of late, but every time I’ve tried one on, I’ve been disappointed in the fit and especially the way it looks on my, erm, backside. But when I slipped into this H&M romper, which I found for a mere $7 at the Gainesville H&M grand opening event, I was instantly sold. It’s SO comfortable and SO lightweight.

I mentioned on my Instagram post last week that I’ve decided the only way to stay cool and look cute in the Florida heat is to wear dresses all summer long. But after giving this romper a try, I may have to amend that statement.

This past weekend, Sam and I took a little mini-vacation to Cedar Key, FL, and this romper was perfect for rompin’ around the quaint little town.

Aren’t these tassel earrings just too fun?! Every now and then it’s nice to be able to incorporate a big piece of jewelry, and when I saw these earrings at H&M, I knew I had to have them. I wasn’t able to find them online, but I just bought them last week, so keep an eye out in your local store!

Flower Empower

Long time, no chat! I’m officially a Floridian, y’all (well, not officially, there’s still some legal things I need to iron out to make it official.. but still). And lemme tell you, moving to Florida in the summer may not have been my smoothest move. It’s so HOT! I’m still having a bit of a hard time adjusting, and an even harder time coming up with cute outfits when all I want to wear is a t-shirt and shorts to keep as cool as possible.

Thanks to Mint Julep Boutique, however, I’ve been able to add this breezy Flower Empower dress to my repertoire, and I’m obsessed. Stick with me ’til the end of this post and there may or may not be a giveaway for you to enter! (Hint: there is.)

I was ecstatic when Mint Julep Boutique contacted me to select a piece of theirs to style on my blog, but you wouldn’t believe how hard of a time I had narrowing my favorites down to just one piece! There’s so many gorgeously unique pieces available on their site, and you can bet I’ll be a repeat customer.

I’m thoroughly enjoying incorporating Florida’s foliage into my blog shoots! And it doesn’t hurt to have a live-in photographer/visionary to create photos like these for me. 😉

The model wearing this dress on #ShopTheMint’s site has me longing for a lacy bralette to wear underneath this beauty!  It adds such a fun touch to the dress, and I’m definitely on the hunt for one!

The Shoes Everyone’s Talking About

Screen Shot 2015-01-31 at 9.09.34 PMIf you haven’t seen these Chanel-inspired espadrilles on Instagram or at your local Target yet, you can thank me later. These are just becoming available in stores and online, and everyone is talking about them. I think they’re adorable, versatile, and the leather makes them the perfect winter-to-spring transition shoe, so you can bet I’ll be getting my hands on a pair the second I see them! Until then, I’m styling each pair for a different purpose: a night out, a day at the office, and a day spent studying in a cozy coffee shop.
