2 looks, 1 romper!

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Off the shoulder is such a huge trend at the moment. It’s honestly everywhere! I have some off the shoulder stuff but sometimes I get sick of it and I honestly haven’t worn this romper in forever so I tried it strapless!  I don’t even think you can tell.  It’s a great way to get more wear out of your trendy clothes.  I think it will work best with the off the shoulder tops/dresses/rompers that have the ruffle top.  You just pull it under your arms and voila!  Just make sure it’s secure before you wear it out.  Don’t want to be losing tops or having nip slips!

And there you go! 2 looks, one romper! You could even try it on one shoulder for another look.  I got this from Irene’s story, this one is very similar.  Here are some similar ones that can be worn both ways: here, here, here, and here.

I have a new blog instagram @blackberriesandsparkles. I post daily and I have day-to-day snippets, beauty loves and outfits that I don’t always post on here!  Go check it out! 😉

Bodysuit Szn + Rambles

I have some pictures to share so I’m gonna ramble about what feels right for each of them! Lol.  It’s always bodysuit szn but it’s wayyyy better when its bodysuit, shorts and sandal szn!  Summer is in full-effect and I love it!

Topshop Lace bodysuit: similar here, here and here. // Levi shorts.

I love a bodysuit with high waisted shorts because #1 buh-bye muffin top and #2 it’s so summery and easy.  I really like a bodysuit with texture, too because it smoothes everything while still showing your shape! It’s super easy to throw on and look totally put together which I love.

I’m so frustrated with my hair.  I feel like its getting better then it looks short in the picture and I feel like it’s breaking off.  I feel like I should chop it and start off fresh but I really want long hair!  🙏🏻 Hoping I look in the mirror next week and am like whoa it grew! Because I got the roots so it’s growing but where is it?

My mom is my photographer, lol. I can’t even remember what she said but I have a bunch of pictures that are literally the laughing-crying emoji.  Hahah.  In the moment poses sometimes are the best photos!

 

Little Black Romper

If you know me, you know I love a little black romper!  I almost prefer rompers over dresses because they’re usually more flattering on me and I feel free in them!  I’m a romper girl for sure and I have a collection of black ones all for different occasions.  Like a little black dress, they are a classic wardrobe staple that works for everything!

Free People Romper / Cole Haan sandals. 

This is a Free People one I got last year. I can’t find it online but it’s called the “gallows” romper so you may have some luck in stores. I’ve rounded up some other ones I like!

This free people one. This Nordstrom BP one and this Nordstrom one. This forever 21 one.

Swapping out my leggings…

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Jeans are my struggle!! I love wearing leggings; black lulus to be specific.  I just love how they feel!  I wear jeans for special occasions and I’m facing the realization that I can’t wear leggings everyday unless I’m like a yoga instructor or something and I don’t even do yoga so I can’t be one and I can’t wear leggings 24/7!!!!!!  Is adulting not wearing leggings 24/7?! AHH.  In my quest to dress up more / not wear leggings I want cooler jeans.  These ones are classics but I want rips and laces and jewels and pom poms (not on the same pair) so this is a shopping opportunity. Lulus are 1st in my heart but I will broaden my horizon in favor of cool jeans. This starts now!

How to Athleisure

IMG_4371.JPG

Adidas sweatshirt/ lululemon high time / Vans Old Skool

I said it before and I’ll say it again, athleisure is my most favorite trend and it’s gonna take a lot for something else to come along and take it’s place.  I love wearing sneakers and cool sweatshirts and I love how simple and easy it is. HERE’s how to get it!

A cool sort of sweatshirt.  Whether it be streetwear or an athletic brand like Nike or Adidas it should be more of a lifestyle piece rather than a go work out at the gym sort of piece.  Bomber jackets work well, too.

Leggings!  I love lululemon leggings.  I own a bunch and I love how smooth they make you look! I also really like how the adidas stripe leggings look but when worn, everything else needs to be simplified! (I have worn those here, with this same sweatshirt in front of the same wall!)

Sneakers!  There is so many options.  I feel like the old skool Vans are replacing Stan Smith adidas which were a really popular shoe in the fashion/street style world that was foolproof and went with everything.   Those shoes are a classic but these Vans are popping up everywhere and having that similar affect.  I also really like the Nike Cortez revival happening RN.  I had a pink pair in second grade and I’m so excited to have them back 12 years later.

Summer Uniform

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Sub urban riot tee / UO shorts / Birkenstocks. 

I have a harder time dressing in the summer because I love to just throw on leggings, a cool sweatshirt, sneakers and be done. That’s my fall/winter uniform and obviously not summer appropriate so I’m trying to have more fun with the options the warm weather gives!  I need a summer go-to outfit and this is what I’ve been doing as of lately.

T-shirt.  I need to get more but I want more then a basic tee!  I don’t mind a cool graphic t-shirt it just can’t be lame and usually thats is a very fine line.

Denim shorts. These are from Urban Outfitters and are very similar to the One Teaspoon bandits.  I love the look of baggy, ripped denim.  It’s super effortless!

Slides.  I rotate between birkenstocks and my fuzzy slides.  I love the white ones for summer!

At night I’ll add a longer cardigan and I love it with the shorts!

The dress everyone needs

H&M Dress similar, similar.  // Puma Fenty // Quay High Key sunglasses. 

I got this t-shirt dress at H&M like 4 years ago and it is still a staple in my closet!  Everyone needs a super easy t-shirt dress they can throw on with sneakers or sandals (depending on your style) and be done.  It’s with it and full proof!  This dress was honestly like $8 at H&M and the quality is shocking!  It’s been washed many times and it hasn’t pilled or faded.  It certainly hasn’t worn/washed like something from H&M. It’s super easy for the summer and everyone needs one!
