The last of the summer looks. I bought this dress back in February when I was overeager for warmer weather - and somehow didn't even put it on until September. Growing up in Kentucky I was always (totally jokingly - I think!) teased for always having a closet full of clothes with the tags still on. [Personally, I blame it on my mom as she was the shopping addict at the time - I've clearly since taken that crown.] But after 3(!!) years of living in NYC I've really learned to edit down my closet. And then edit again. And then edit some more. Somehow this little dress never got returned and it patiently waited on me to give it a whirl. I gotta say - it was worth the wait!
Tobi romper c/o
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!
Tobi dress c/o
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!
