Living in Yellow

July 27, 2019

Back when the Hunter for Target Collection dropped I was on the fence whether I needed this short sleeve romper. By the time I decided to purchase it the romper was gone. However as fate would have it a seller on Poshmark had it listed for $6, NWT!
This romper was quite a bit out of my comfort zone. The verdict is still out on rompers, but this one seemed so perfect for days at my best friend's pool or when you need something light for this 100 degree summer. Plus it'll work with espadrilles or sneakers (rollerskates too). This romper seemed pretty versatile and the pop of yellow is so fun.
I know the Hunter x Target Collection came out eons ago but honestly I wish I had picked up a few more items. There was a mesh dress that would've been great for rainy days and a couple of rubber clutches I would've liked to add to my closet.
I paired this romper with some gold leather espadrilles I got from Soludos via Poshmark for $14. I really love Soludos. Their espadrilles are so comfy and I can wear them with jumpsuits and at the office. They also have some fun gold sneakers that are super versatile and would make this look even sportier.

You may remember my on and off again relationship with jewelry, but when I saw these gold earrings from Aurate New York I fell in love with their simplicity and wearing earrings again. I have been rebuilding my jewelry collection with pieces I'm really passionate about and this pair of earrings is one of them. I have always loved initial earrings. They are such a fun and classic piece to show off your personality. I literally never plan on taking these earrings off. Plus they're 14k gold so I can shower with them on!

I love the simple yet chic packaging of these earrings!

These initial earrings are so fun and the perfect pair of earrings to get me back into my jewelry groove. They also have an Aries pair that I'm obsessed with!
So rompers? The jury is still out, but hey personally it feels nice to not to channel my style icon Dr. Tobias Funke by just wearing jorts, birkenstocks, and a plain H&M t-shirt to beat this heat. Of course in pure Chanel fashion a bright yellow romper was the only alternative. While this romper is long gone this one is a pretty similar alternative. I have also been eying this Alexa Chung for AG denim romper because anything Alexa does is revolutionary!
July has gone by so fast! I finished my consumer behavior class a couple weeks ago and have moved onto strategic management. Not to say I haven't been relaxing. Although these weekends have been busy they've been fun. I saw Shawn Mendes last weekend and had shrimp tacos with my best friend. Life doesn't get much better than that. Talk soon, friends!

How do you feel about rompers?
