Happy Friday!!!  Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like bodysuits have been growing in popularity lately.  I was  a little unsure of them at first, but I finally decided I had to try one out.  I ordered 3 different ones and trying them on made me feel a little like Goldilocks.  One was too long, one was a bit too tight, but the third was absolute perfection.  I figured I’d run through a few of my and my friends questions and concerns over bodysuits, in case you have any of the same ones.

Let’s start with the main one, how do you go to the bathroom in this thing?  I feel like everyone who has ever headed out in a romper has had that moment when you suddenly realize that you have to take the whole thing off when it’s time to go the bathroom.  Super glamorous, especially if this is taking place in a not so clean bathroom (think bars, concert port-o-potties).  Needless to say, it causes me to make sure I really love a romper before purchasing.  Here’s the great thing about bodysuits, someone thought to put snaps on the bottom!  Think a baby’s onesie.  No getting naked in the bathroom, just a few easy snaps.

Second, are they comfortable?  The fit is just like a one piece swimsuit.  I find mine comfortable. Just like with a swimsuit, you will probably have to try a few to find ones that fit your body type and that you feel comfortable in.  I’m petite, so for me it’s finding one that is not too long.  The bottom portion comes in either thong fit or full bottom, so it’s a pick your preference kind of thing.

What’s my favorite thing about them?  I love that I don’t have to worry about my shirt coming untucked.  This is one of those little annoyances of mine.  A bodysuit will stay in place as you move or dance around.

What do you wear it with?  Everything!  Jeans, skirts, shorts.  I can’t wait to wear this one with one of my pleated midi skirts soon.

Hopefully, my little bodysuit review was helpful if you have been considering one.  In this one, I am wearing a US6.  Let me know if you have any other questions, and I will be sure to answer them.

For today’s post, I styled my bodysuit for an upcoming girls’ night out.  Dark wash skinny jeans, bright pink statement earrings, and floral statement heels come together to create the perfect show stopping outfit for a night out on the town.  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, and thank you so much for stopping by!

Hello!!  Did you catch my post over the weekend?  I rounded up some of the best summer wedges.  If you missed it, you can check it out here.  I had a fun weekend filled with relaxing on Saturday and hanging out with friends on Sunday.

We are definitely moving into the heart of summer and that summer heat.  When planning outfits, I always try to take the heat into consideration.  I love this lightweight striped tank for those hot days.  It’s a stretchy, breathable material.  It comes in a few other prints and colors, but I’m a sucker for the stripes, especially to pair with white jeans.

Remember those floral shoes I mentioned picking up during the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale, well here they are!! (And Currently marked down even more!)  I’m so in love with subtle feminine floral print, the delicate strap and knot design, and the mule style.  These heels have a slightly lower heel than I normally wear, but I love this for outdoor summer parties.  The stripes and floral pair perfectly together to create the perfect dressy casual summer outfit to survive an outdoor party.

Thanks for stopping by and reading!

Currently Craving: Summer Wedges

Happy Weekend!! It’s been a hot minute since I shared a shop guide, so I’m bringing them back and starting with the crowd favorite – Wedge Sandals!! I found summer wedges in a variety of colors, styles, and price points for you guys.  Ya’ll know I love a good nuetral wedge, but I’m also a fan of a good black wedge too.  I think these two colors are great if you are looking for a pair that can be worn a variety of ways all season long.  I also included a red and pink pair, because I think these are two fun colors to enhance any summer outfit.  Many of these shoes come in multiple colors.  If you love the style but not the color, click through to see the other color options.

Also, I just want to mention that today is the last day of the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale.  I love to use this sale to stock up on basics like loungewear, workout gear, jeans, and always shoes.  Ya’ll have a great rest of your weekend!

Happy Friday!! This summer crop top is one of my top purchases this season.  Not going to lie, I was a little nervous about the whole crop top idea, but I think the length works perfectly with the slightly higher waist of these distressed jeans.  I’m not really showing any skin unless I move certain ways.  It is also the perfect length to pair with shorts for my height.  Since I am on the petite side, longer tees usually end up looking like I’m not wearing shorts and have to be tucked in.  This top is a great length for a loose, non-tucked in look with shorts for me.

I wore this outfit for an outdoor ballet followed by drinks also outside, and it was perfect for the warm evening.  This top is lightweight and the movement really helps keep you a little cooler.

I’m really loving this affordable denim brand.  I have two pairs from them that I have had in constant rotation lately.  For under $50, the quality is really good.  They hold their shape throughout the day and with multiple wears.  The denim is slightly thinner than some of my higher end jeans, but I personally like that for a Texas summer.  It helps you stay cool when it’s 90 degrees even after dark.

I hope ya’ll have a great weekend!!
