Romper

I love a good romper.  And this one just might be my favorite.  Ever.  I am always a fan of anything navy, which was originally why I was drawn to it, but the tie waist makes it particularly flattering.  Plus the length isn’t too short-which is always something I seem to struggle with when it comes to rompers.  So if you’re looking for an easy, flattering romper (for a great price!), then this is the one, ladies!

Don’t forget, there are just a couple of days left to shop the #NSale!  You can shop my favorites here (most items have been restocked!).  And be sure to check back tomorrow for one last round-up of some of my favorite beauty and active items from the sale!

Happy Friday, sweet friends!

I love a good romper.  And in my opinion, Topshop makes some of the best around.  Plus, how amazing are these shoes?  I snagged these when I was in NYC a couple of weeks ago and they are a definite favorite in my closet. Cute and comfy?  Don’t mind if I do!

25 Things I’ve Learned in my 30s

If I’m being completely honest, I have to admit that I’ve been feeling a little angst about my birthday today.  Ever since I hit 30, it seems to get a little harder to see the years keep ticking by one by one.  And the milestone birthdays (like 35!), seem to be a little weightier than 18 and 21, and definitely not quite as fun.  BUT I have to say, as I have been reflecting on my 30s the last few days, I’ve realized that while these years have been some of the most challenging, it has also been one of the most rewarding phases of my life that has cultivated the most personal growth.  So in honor of my 35th birthday today, I thought I’d share a few things that I have learned so far in my 30s:

  1.  It’s ok to be completely you are, and feel confident in that.
  2.  Life is messy, and complicated, and harder than anyone ever tells you.
  3.  You can make just about anything in a crockpot.
  4. My mom is my best friend.
  5. If you think something nice about someone (whether you know them or not), tell them!
  6. Watching Dateline (or 48 Hours Mystery) in my jammies with a glass of wine on Friday night is usually more exciting than going out.
  7. It’s ok to be the most overdressed person at a party.
  8. Dry-shampoo is a life-saver.
  9.  Be kind to everyone.  You never know what is going on behind someone else’s closed doors.
  10. Lip gloss over lipstick.
  11. Coffee dates with girlfriends are refreshing for the soul.
  12. It’s ok to tell people no.
  13. Find gratitude in everything.
  14. Eating healthy is fun and it feels good (same with working out)!
  15. Strive to be a better and kinder person each and every single day.
  16.  Thriving relationships create true happiness-not success and wealth.  Choose your focus wisely.
  17. It’s important to splurge and treat yourself every now and again.
  18. Saving for retirement is really, really important.
  19. Find something you’re passionate about and incorporate it into your day-to-day.
  20. Boundaries in relationships are key.
  21. Being an auntie is one of the best jobs in the world!!
  22. Ignore the haters.
  23. The Bachelor/Bachelorette is the best way to end a Monday.
  24. Trust your gut.
  25.  I am blessed beyond measure to know a God that loves me and forgives me for all of the  mistakes I make along the way!

Romper Time

I LOVE rompers!  So I am really glad that they are back in a big way this season.  And even though the temps have been a little chilly in the SLC, I have still been able to wear some of my favorites by pairing them with denim jackets and cozy cardigans (like in today’s post). With all the crazy weather we’ve been having here in the SLC this Spring, layering has definitely been a must!

Jumper

I LOVE a good romper, but it took me a little longer to get hop on the jumpsuit bandwagon.  But when I found this great navy version recently, I was sold!  So while jumpsuits might seem a little intimidating at first, I definitely recommend at least trying one on. Not only are they chic, but they are amazingly comfy and easy to wear and style.  In fact, I can’t wait to wear this one with a leather jacket and pumps when the temps cool down a bit.

Happy, happy Friday, sweet friends!  Wish you all a FANTASTIC weekend!

Romper Time

When I stumbled on a romper version of my favorite shirt ever, I knew that I had to have it.  But because I have long legs, and a short torso (I’m still only 5’3″), I tend to struggle with finding rompers that fit my body type.  So when I put it on and it fit perfectly (and felt like pajamas!) it was a definite no-brainer.  And it really is a perfect summer addition to my wardrobe that is different than anything else I own, all the while being as familiar as my favorite shirt.  And an added bonus?  It’s the perfect thing to wear for the 4th of July paired back to red heels and a bold red lip!

Versatility

I’m way into rompers right now.  I don’t know what it is, but I keep gravitating towards them over dresses in my closet this summer.  I think because they are actually shorts, they can have a slightly more casual feel which makes them seemingly appropriate for just about any occasion-from a backyard BBQ to date night.  BUT, rompers are also super easy to glam up.  Just add a big floppy sun hat, statement heels, and an oversized pair of sunnies-and bam! Instant glam!  And if I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times-versatile pieces (like rompers!) are the key to a well-rounded wardrobe!

Romper Time

I love rompers.  Like, seriously love them.  They are so fun, flirty, and such a nice change up from dresses and shorts in the summer.  And not only that, but I love the variety that this sweet, ditsy print adds to my wardrobe.  You know what they say, variety is the spice of life, right?  And in my opinion, it’s also the key to a well-rounded wardrobe!  Plus there is just something about rompers that makes me feel like I should be heading to an amazing music festival, or some super cool boho-chic event.

Vegas Recap

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that J and I were in Las Vegas last week for a long weekend and a bike race.  We had a fantastic time and spent our days riding our road bikes through the Red Rock Canyon, attending Interbike, doing a little shopping, and (mostly) lounging by the pool.  It was a fun and relaxing few days.  But I have to say, my favorite part was the excuse to get extra dressed up for dinner in the evenings.  And any excuse to throw on a little extra sparkle is a good enough excuse for me…
