Hey, y'all! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I'm slowly getting together all of the pieces for my dorm room, but it's crazy how many things you never realize you need (

or think you need but really don't

). I love digging through the aisles of Homegoods, so stay tuned to see how I decorate my room on a budget. 

These cute little shorts quickly became my favorite summer item. I love how easy they are to throw on, how comfortably they fit, and how fun they are for summer. I find myself quickly gravitating to white and black hues, especially when the months get cooler, so I love finding a bright, bold pair of shorts like these for the summer. A breezy tank top is a must for this Houston heat, especially a versatile one like this. I found both of these at local boutiques in Houston, but

Hemline

and

P&C

both have

the

cutest Instagram accounts that you can purchase directly from! I've linked similar items though in case you would prefer to shop online. The last thing I want in this heat and humidity is to worry about a ton of jewelry, so I kept it simple with this delicate Golden Thread

necklace

and Baublebar

bracelet trio

. To tie the whole look together, I paired it with my new favorite

wedges

from Tory Burch. I scored them on sale a few months ago, but there are a few left on her site so get them while you can! 

I hope you all have a wonderful week! Let me know what your summer outfit necessities are in the comments below.

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!

Spring is always such a fun time to play around with sundresses and rompers, so I was so excited to mix the off the shoulder trend with a classic spring romper. I was so surprised at how soft this romper was, how easily it stayed on, and how versatile it is. I kept it simple with a basic denim jacket (one of my new favorite staples) and threw on a dramatic necklace to add a pop to the otherwise simple look.

Have a great weekend!
