Little Black Romper

LOFT Roll Sleeve Romper Isola Adette Sandals (via Hautelook) Big Buddha wristlet JORD Ely maple watch (c/o) If they weren’t such a pain every time you use the loo, I’d happily live in [tasteful] rompers and playsuits. “Here, put on this one thing. Ok, good to go.” I bought this one from LOFT at the start of summer, before it went on sale. It seemed like a big splurge to drop $80 on a romper, but I’ve worn it no fewer than twenty times: dressed up on a date night, dressed down to the shop, over a swimsuit with my Havaianas; it’s one of the most versatile pieces in my closet right now.

Making : plans for Labor Day weekend. It’s our last shot at a good break before the busy season kicks in. Cooking : EVOL frozen dinners in the microwave. Drinking : Tito’s and soda with lime in cute mason jar tumblers. Reading: The Wonder Spot by Melissa Bank. It’s kind of, meh. Wanting: a pair of classic black leather boots for fall. I’m peeping Hautelook sales every few days to find the perfect pair. Playing: the “All About that Bass” video on repeat. Wasting: rainy evenings cuddled on the couch with Doak and C and Netflix. Wishing: this three-day work week business was reality. Enjoying: some peace of mind about the flower shop’s current space. After being on the market for over a year, our building sold to a wonderful family who wants to extend our lease. So many prayers answered. Waiting: for Sunday morning and blueberry pancakes with my parents at our favorite little cafe. It’s one of the best parts of my week. Liking: Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation. I bought this kit with foundation, primer and powder from Sephora …

Like, Lauren Conrad in Allure basic. Which by the way, why they hatin’? I love LC’s easy feminine style and if it’s wrong I don’t wanna be right; as I tap out this blog post with a ballet slippers manicure {cough}.

Summer Lovin’

I’ve been lusting after these studded leather sandals since I spotted them on @studiomcgee’s Instagram way back at the start of the summer, so I was pumped to find them in a Hautelook sandal sale recently. Patience and discounts, amen. Can someone ‘splain to me how we’re already in the last week of July? Slow it down, summer; I’m just starting to get a decent tan… While I hear others whispering about the anticipation of fall and boots and pumpkin lattes — seriously, already? —  I’m holding on to the rest of this season with clenched fists. Give me all the afternoon thunderstorms, lazy hours by the pool, weekend BBQs, sunny boat rides, and naps. Lots of naps.
