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!

This has been one of those go-to outfits for me this summer. A cotton striped dress is so effortless and timeless, and so it's easy to wear a million different ways. I love tying a lightweight button up around my waist to add a little bit of definition, a pop of color, and to have a nice little something for those rooms where the AC is just too cold! I added "rock-themed" jewelry with the simple long necklace and crystal cuff. The perfect combo to look put together while staying comfortable!

A big thank you to Joyluxe Boutique for providing the bracelet.

I'm completely in love with this skirt. I know everyone and their mom has already posted, bought and worn it, but I still love it. I got mine early last fall when this blog was still just a thought, but I love it so much that I still had to feature it. 

The clutch is part of the 3 in 1 bag I featured a couple weeks ago for a

travel look

. The bag it came with is reversible, and features this inside pocket plus a pouch for smaller essentials. The fact that I can reverse the big bag sold me enough, but this inner "clutch" was the icing on top. 

I hope everyone has a great week!

When I'm traveling, I always want to be comfy but still look presentable. Layering is a must because I can never seem to find the perfect temp! You can never go wrong with jeans and a tee, then just throw on a sweater and you're good! 

Safe travels!

One of the most important things when going back to school is your outfit. It's never easy to transition from watching Netflix marathons all day to actually having to do something, including putting on real clothes. I put together an outfit that is perfect for school because it's casual without looking sloppy. Apparently, I love stripes a little more than I realized... but how can you not when they're so easy! Hopefully this gives all of you going back to school a little inspiration for your own outfit!
