One of my favorite memories as a child were the days my parents let me play hookie from school. I know this sounds bad at first thought, but it was all in good fun (and thanks to my loud mouth our teachers always knew what we were really doing). Twice a year, my dad would come pull my sister & I out of school at lunch time to go have a daddy/daughter shopping spree day. Did anyone else do this? Back to school shopping in both Fall and Spring were the two best days of the year! Unfortunately they had to come to an end at some point (sigh), but I can’t wait to do that with my own kids some day.
Aside from this cute story and the fact I’m no longer in school, it taught me a thing or two about wardrobe planning this time of year. When transitioning to Fall I always look for pieces that can be worn multiple ways and can long outlast the current weather conditions. Layering pieces are key! Today I’ve teamed up with Urban Outfitters to bring you my adult version of back-to-school style and what I consider to be Fall transition pieces…
No Monday blues here this week as I am writing this post from my bed and while watching the morning news 🙂 It feels so good to wake up and be excited about what you’re doing!! Thank you for all your kind words of encouragement last week on my recent move to Houston and going full time with my blog. You guys are amazing and always make me want to be the best version of myself!
With that being said, I hope this post helps wipe away your Monday blues. I mean how could it not? Isn’t this baby blue bow shoulder jumpsuit precious? It’s also under $70!
Happy (BEST) FRIDAY (EVER) y’all!! As many of you already know that follow me on Instagram or snapchat, today is my last day working an office job and I will be going full time with my blog. This has been a goal of mine since I first started blogging and I’ve been looking forward to this day for some time now, so this moment is pretty surreal! Doing exactly what you love and feeling that you are living out your purpose is one of the greatest feelings in this world. Going full time however would be impossible without you guys (my readers & followers), so THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to share my life with you virtually and for supporting my blog over the years. There are so many exciting things in store and I can’t wait to share all of it with you!
With that being said, there’s an even bigger surprise….
You either love or hate rompers, but if you’re one that hates them have you ever asked yourself why? I’m here to tell you there is a romper for every body type…it’s just about finding the right one for you. I mean as women, we’re hard on ourselves (duh) and have this horrible habit of comparing….but we have to remember that what might work for someone with a different body, does not mean it can’t work for you too! If you have read my ‘Meet Sage‘ page, you know this is a challenge I love most about my blogging career. Taking an idea, trend, look, or garment and finding a way to make it my own regardless of my insecurities.
Since finding rompers for various body types is a common struggle among women, I have teamed up with some of my closest Dallas blogger girlfriends to bring you Rompers for Different Body Types — Dallas blogger edition! Since we can totally relate — each girl has her own reasons for romper of choice, accompanied by both insecurities & also things they love about their individual body types….
