Rompin' & Rollin': Romper + Jacket + Booties

Rompers...  Rompers, man.  Probably one of the most hotly contested trends of... ever.  And I was one of those people who just... just didn't "get it" at first.  I was confused.  I mean, what's the point?  Don't they give you mom jeans butt?  Also, how does one go to the bathroom easily?  [You know you thought it, too - don't lie.]  There were so many questions.  That is, until I just bucked up the courage and bought one -- this very one featured in today's post to be precise.  My feelings on rompers now?  I won't ever look back and I won't be such a harsh critic on new trends from now on, prior to actually trying them out.  Plus, if I had tons of extra money lying around, I'd have every intention to purchase many more.  Many.

I am so glad I got over my irrational fear of rompers (and of maxi dresses too, for that matter).  What a life change for the better!  What's a trend you're glad you took a risk on?  Or one you regret like crazy?

Flowy Florals: Denim Jacket + Tank + Skirt + Kitten Heels

Hey guys! Do you want to know something I'm a fan of? Well, even if you don't, I'm still going to tell you: random midweek date nights. Especially when those unexpected dates are to an Indian food restaurant. Talk about delish. I can't get enough Indian food. Plus, so much of the menu tends to be vegetarian, so I have the #firstworldproblem of TOO many options (which is an issue I personally love to have when it comes to food). What's your favorite type of date?

Polka Dance: Cardigan + Distressed Denim + Flats

Hello there!  I hope you all had a great Mother's Day!  Whether you have actual human kiddos, you're a foster mama, or you have fur/scale/feather babies, know that you are loved and appreciated for all your hard work day in and day out.  Because it's true: being a mom is tough work.  People may laugh (or shake their heads) that Matt & I consider ourselves parents of three; however, we never plan to have children of the Homo sapien variety -- and we love our Luna, Dakota, and Kingsley more than words can explain.  That may confuse/make some people pity me/anger (I've heard it all) a few peeps, but that's okay with me.  I am their mommy, and they are my babies, and I have an unlimited amount of unconditional love reserved just for them :)
