April Showers

It may be the end of May, but the flowers are still blooming! Florals are back in this season and are a perfect way to embrace the summer months. This has always been one of my favorite trends and I'm ecstatic that it continues to defy the changing styles season after season. It's nice knowing that the floral pieces that I purchased last summer will still be perfect for this summer! With so many different floral pieces to choose from it can be a bit overwhelming finding a pattern that fits your fancy. Mix it up this summer with small and delicate floral patterns as well as big and bold floral prints!

Play in the Sun

It has been a truly beautiful weekend full of warm temperatures and plenty of sun! I've been able to declutter my closet and pull out some of my favorite dresses and rompers! Also know as playsuits, rompers have become my summer staple this year! Not only do I not have to worry about wind causing an embarrassing moment from happening like when wearing a dress, they are super comfortable and are perfect for day or evening. Now I know there is the very valid argument of the romper being a bit of a hassle when one has to visit the restrooms, but I feel like the pros far outweigh the cons. Lately I've been a fan of online shopping, seeing as there are so many  more different items available. This way I am more likely not to see someone wearing the same thing! For rompers,  I like ones from the brand Lipsy London.  Full of bright colors and pretty floral patterns, I find myself having trouble finding just one that I like. Check out their website here!
