I was recently able to take an amazing trip to Europe (

stay tuned for a travel diary

) and so of course my first thoughts went to outfits! As soon as I came across this romper, I knew it would be the perfect piece to bring. Everything from the flowy fit to the vertical stripes makes it perfect for traveling, hiding the results of too much pasta, and versatility. 

Nothing says 

summer

 to me like a cute romper. For running errands, traveling, or even a night out, rompers are the perfect go-to for any occasion. Shorts or skirts require finding a matching a top, a dress means a constant awareness of how you sit and watching the wind, but a romper doesn't require either of these! A lightweight one like this is especially perfect for traveling because it folds up to almost nothing in a suitcase and only requires a necklace to finish off the look! I love how the vertical stripes elongate everything and the simple cinched waist sucks everything in perfectly. For the daytime, I added a black bandeau and gladiator flats, but the same look can easily be taken from day to night by removing the bandeau and adding a fun pair of heeled sandals. I'm obsessed with double strand necklaces right now, but

Strands O'beads

has the

best

 handmade (

and custom ordered

) necklaces that fit every occasion, neckline, and style. Finish it off with a simple bag, and you're good to go!

Thanks for reading and have a great Fourth of July weekend!

Happy Monday! I have had my eyes on a calf hair

clutch

for a while now (

here

) and was so excited when I came across this one. Something about a fun texture like a cowhide adds such a cool statement to an otherwise very simple outfit. I absolutely love the way it looks with this simple black

romper

and gold accessories. Since each clutch is made with a unique cowhide, each one is a little bit different. I wish my particular one had more white in it, but it still looks great against the black romper!

I found this

romper

at a local boutique and it happened to be the last one. It's by the brand "

Finders Keepers

" but I've tried to link very similar styles down below! I'm obsessed with Australian brands like

FK

,

C/meo

&

The Fifth

because they always fit so flawlessly, have the best cuts, and are amazing quality. They're a tad bit more of an investment, but definitely worth every penny!

Thanks for reading!

On the agenda for today: part two of the Valentine's Day lookbook! In total contrast of Monday's post (

seen

here

), this red lace romper is a much more formal approach towards the holiday. While the other outfit would be great for the day, this outfit would be perfect for night. 

A few months ago, I saw Arielle from

Something Navy

wear

this

gorgeous

red lace romper

. I was pleasantly surprised to come across one that looks almost identical from H&M, but with a much more affordable price tag! Since it was a few months ago that I found it, it is no longer in stock - what's new. I hate not being able to link exact products for y'all, but I found some look alikes that are just as amazing, if not better! Three of them are under $75 (

, &

) and one of them is even available

to rent

! While the remaining two are more of a splurge, they make for great investments (

&

). All of the rompers, as well as the rest of the outfit, are linked above and in the "Shop the Look" section below. Although I went with black as an accent color, a great pair of nude or blush heels would look amazing as well! 

Let me know which Valentine's Day look was your favorite in the comments below. Thanks for reading and have a great Valentine's Day:)
