Romper Room









Anthropologie earrings (also love these and these)


Okay so I can honestly say that I never imagined I'd be wearing a romper on this blog! For someone that doesn't ever wear shorts, well, this sure was a huge feat!  This romper from Tobi was an easy choice because of it's loose style - it has all the leg room these thighs need! I'm already thinking about all the other rompers out there that I am ready to conquer (specifically loving this one and this one). Sometimes it just feels great to get out of your comfort zone and this was definitely one for me. 

I wore this look out to grab some flowers and have some dinner with Tyler recently. I know I've said it a lot lately, but I've just been all about comfort.  This outfit was no exception - super simple and incredibly effortless.  With this crazy spring weather the temperature can change drastically in such a short period of time so having the perfect layers on hand is essential.  That's obviously where this denim jacket comes in hand.  It is everything. While I've always worn denim jackets, it wasn't until I came across this one from Anthropologie a couple years ago that I knew what I was missing out on. The fit on this jacket it everything and has become such a staple in my wardrobe.  It was clearly a no brainer to pair with my Tobi romper to fight off the chill of this spring weather. 

I hope you've enjoyed this series of looks with Tobi! If you missed them, be sure to catch up on look one and look two.  Once you've seen all three, let me know which look was your favorite!  And don't forget, first time customers get 50% off of their first orders at Tobi!  Definitely check out their dresses, rompers, and jeans to add some super cute pieces to your spring & summer looks!

Cold Shoulders








Oh hello there!  Thanks so much for all your kind words over my last post with Tobi!  Today I'm bringing you look #2 in this fun series of transitional season outfits! Now, I'm not sure if you're aware but - hold on to your hats - I turned 30 last November.  Okay, so you're probably not at all surprised (but my fingers are crossed that you are because I've been really investing in skincare lately!) but the point is not to draw attention to my fleeting youth but rather to make you aware that I'm getting a little old for mini-dresses.  Let's get real - it's not like I really wore mini dresses any.  But now that I'm venturing into this new decade I'm painfully aware of the youthful styles that I just can't conquer. As you've probably guessed already, this is where my handy pair of favorite denim comes in!  Yes ladies, this means you can buy those super cute mini dresses that you want to wear but know that it will barely cover your behind. Layer those bad boys over your favorite pair of jeans and suddenly you have a tunic that is perfect for this completely unpredictable spring weather! Brilliant, I know!

This was 100% the revelation I had while shopping on Tobi to pick out the styles I wanted to wear in collaboration with them.  I wanted to be true to myself and my own personal style to inspire you to do the same. While Tobi has lots of incredibly cute mini-dresses and rompers that are perfect for a 20-something, we 30-somethings can shop here, too! This dress is so amazing! The cold shoulder is completely on trend right now and could you just die over the little ties on the sleeves? Pro tip: have a girlfriend nearby if you plan to tie them in bows instead of just knotted. ;)  I highly recommend that you pop over and take a look at their cute collection of dresses and consider how you can creatively wear them with your wardrobe! I can't help but suggest this bell-sleeved black one and this lacy white one - they're both in my shopping cart right now!

Quay sunnies

Those April showers have sure made their way into May, but at least the weather is finally starting to feel like spring!   Lately I've been taking advantage of the warmth with bare arms & legs every possible day and, when necessary, tossing on an easy extra layer to glam up my look.  This is the first of 3 transitional weather looks I'll be showing you over the next week in collaboration with Tobi!  

Can we talk about this clutch for a minute?! Like, there aren't enough words to describe the amount of obsession I have for it! The fringe and the stitching are the most perfect on-trend details and it holds so much stuff. Seriously. Wallet, phone, camera, 5 lipstick options - all the necessities! ;)  When I was pouring over every single item on the Tobi site, I fell hard and fast for this clutch so I was thrilled when it arrived with even better quality than I had imaged. 

As for the dress, well, this one is right up my alley.  I tend to gravitate towards either fit & flare shapes that really enhance my waist or the exact opposite!  This dress definitely falls into the latter category and it's right on trend for the styles I've been gravitating towards lately.  Maybe it's the nearly 3 years I've been living in NYC (can you believe it's been that long?!) but I've been really interested in these edgier, more organic shapes.  Drop crotch jumpsuits? I have 2 (and maybe there is another one on the way). I know, I'm insane. But there is just something so darn comfortable about these types of styles and they just have such a naturally chic vibe.  This dress is obviously no exception but just one little tip - a backless bra is essential for all of us ladies that can't really get by with going braless.  The sides of this dress are very drapey and because I didn't have a backless bra on hand, I was kind of limited to how I could shoot this look for you or you would've seen a bit more undergarment that you bargained for. With the proper bra though, this dress is crazy chic on top of being crazy comfortable. 

I'm definitely giving Tobi 2 thumbs up for my first order with them!  If you like what you see here, head over to their site (I suggest their dresses, skirts, and rompers!) where you'll get 50% off your first order! I'll see you back here next week with 2 more Tobi inspired looks!
