I’ve had this romper for awhile now, and I’m constantly trying to create new looks with it. Since it is a blank canvas, the pairing options are endless. I’ve worn the romper with a denim vest and adidas, wedges and chunky earrings and now with mule espadrilles and a neckerchief, among other things. Like I mentioned in Friday Finds a few weeks ago, be bold and try out the neckerchief.

Friday Finds

I want to start a new segment on my blog entitled “Friday Finds.” Here I will share my favorite items of the week. They may be new items, a restaurant I tried, or a piece of home decor. Who knows… I hope you ride along on this adventure with me.

North Star Stud Earrings

I’m obsessed with these diamond and starburst earrings. They come in 14k yellow, white and rose gold. You can wear them everyday or dress them up. They are $240 a pair.

Textured Stripe Swimsuit

I love that the one piece is back in style. First of all they are just so easy to wear. No slips will happen when you’re all locked into this swimsuit. I love the bow detail in the back, too.

Memphis residents and tourists have a new place to hang out! RailGarten, located in Midtown, has something for everyone. From the ice cream parlor and cocktail lounge to the indoor ping pong bar and the outdoor sand volleyball court. There is even outdoor music and the largest tire swing that even the adults will want to swing on. I can’t wait to go back!

Red Stripe Denim

This twist on your average white denim will make your spring and summer looks. Pair with any blue button down or a ruffled blouse, and you’ve got your summer go-to look.

Ferris Wheel Tee

Okay, how cute is this embroidered tee? Tuck into a denim bottom, slip on your Adidas tennies or favorite mules and you’re out the door.

Thanks for stopping by! Let me know what else you would like to see here.

 

From Santa

First of all, guys, this is a big moment. I’m not wearing anything by Zara.

Santa surprised me with a few stellar pieces to build my wardrobe. I love the bomber trend but don’t love how the fluffy material makes me look fluffy too. This bomber from Shopbop is a thin silky material, which takes the shape of your body. And, this color is so rich that I’ll pair it with all neutrals.

The flannel booties were also under the Christmas tree. I’m OBSESSED. I first laid eyes on these beauties this summer while working for Tibi, and they made their way into my closet 6 months later. You might get sick of seeing them on me, but I won’t.

Fringed Sweater

And so the mad shopping begins! On just about every site, you can find almost anything on sale. Of course, Neimans doesn’t mark down your favorite Gucci purse, but we don’t get everything we want.

The fringed sweater I am wearing is a great deal. It’s only $21 and can be layered over collared shirts and under heavy coats. The fringe along the hem makes the sweater unique, and so I had to have it.

Also, for those of you who haven’t visited the Big River Crossing, you must! It showcases a wonderful view of our wonderful city.
