Another cold shoulder

J.O.A. Cold shoulder shirt dress

So here's the thing. I fought the off the shoulder and cold shoulder trends as much as possible. And then I reached a breaking point and now there's no turning back. But I just fell in love with the dress because a) I love a good shirt dress b) I love stripes and c) the off the shoulder look gives a classic piece an interesting twist. I was so happy to get it and try it on and see that it looked as adorable on as I pictured and hoped it would be!

Bathroom remodel: Complete!

If you need a refresher, you can look back at this post hereI didn't exactly expect the remodel to take this long! It sat dormant for quite some time though. For the most part, it's been done since February. The thing that set me back was the need for a backsplash. These are the problems you encounter when you decide to create your own makeshift vanity! It will all make sense when you see the photos! Let's just get started because this will be photo heavy!

Hello Monday: 90's inspired outfit

floral, stripes, denim vest, white pumps, 90's inspired outfit

Do you ever feel like someone is watching you from behind? I couldn't resist taking photos with the eyeball! This is a rare lunchtime photo shoot. I had to improvise and take photos during the week because of my weekend trips at the end of May. A fashion blogger's work is never done, right? But, I was happy with our shoot location, and even more happy about this outfit!

Random roundup

random roundup, more pieces of me blog

By the time you read this, I will likely already be living it up in Vegas. I want to publicly apologize in advance for all of the drunk Snaps that may ensue. But if you're brave, and you have the ability to hear high pitched sounds like dogs do, you can follow along with me on our girls' weekend, bachelorette party extravaganza! (Same handle as my Instagram - carylee07) But first, I have some outfit selfies from the vault waiting for you!

May Fabletics

fabletics, may 2016, Asmara outfit: Femina tank, Salar capri, Lyra bra

So far I have had a 100% success rate with everything that I've tried at Fabletics. I still look forward to the first of every month so I can start shopping for my new outfit. May was no exception. I basically wore this outfit the second I got it in the mail. The best part of this outfit though is the back view.

(I'm wearing a small in all three pieces)

The top did end up feeling a little too baggy for my taste, but it was nothing my little knot trick could not fix. And I am such a fan of their sports bras. They always fit so well and are extremely comfortable. I've been loving them so much! I was really wanting a non-black pair of leggings because their prints are just too much fun, but I couldn't get the color and size combination to work out, so I ended up having to get plain black. It's not necessarily a bad thing though because you really can't ever have too many pairs of black leggings. These fit great. They lock and load your body without the muffin top. I really love the support they provide.

I'm not exaggerating when I say that anytime I wear any of my Fabletics pieces, I always get compliments. And then they are usually followed with gasps of surprise because they are shocked that they're Fabletics. Perhaps it's a good thing I've only recently discovered my love for them because I would have a lot less money by now!

The perfect black romper

gap jersey knit scoop back romper, soludos

This weekend, I'm headed to Vegas for a bachelorette party! I've been mentally packing for the last couple of weeks, and warm weather trips always make me reach for lightweight rompers. I came across this one last week and ordered it immediately. I loved that it had a normal top (i.e. I don't have to wear a strapless bra with it), it has pockets, and it has a scoop back for added interest. It arrived this weekend, and I loved it so much! Hence why I just ordered it in grey also!
