Summer Outfits: The Punchy Pom Pom Romper

Jun 30, 2017


Yellow Pom Pom Romper: Nordstrom (it’s on sale right now for $26!!!) Also, how cute is this yellow polka dot romper (under $50!) and this off the shoulder floral one? Also, this little yellow sundress for only $39! (The back is so cute and strappy!) // Sandals: Splendid (also available in black and white–the black is on major sale!!) I LOVE everything Splendid makes–it’s all so comfortable! I’ve also got my eye on this similar espadrille version – tons of their shoes are on sale here right now too! // Earrings: Baublebar–they come in about 85 colors not even joking, and they also come in a mini version (I also love these white and gold tassel earrings! I also love these fringe drop ombre earrings! // Necklace: Similar here in gold and here in rose gold and similar here // Bracelets: Monica Vinader and Kendra Scott // Hat: Nordstrom–B.P. has so many cute affordable beach hats right now! // Bag: Cult Gaia (there’s currently a waiting list, but the next pre-order ships out in a few weeks, so get in now and you won’t have to wait too long! See yesterday’s post for the full 411 about it! Do people still say “the 411”?) // Hair: Curled with the T3 Micro wand 


It’s heeereeee!

Woah, like “4th of July Weekend”–what’s happening? I feel like I just took a nap and it was January and then I woke up in July. What’s in the water?! I keep forgetting that it’s my birthday next week (the 9th) because I still feel like it’s supposed to be winter.

Are you taking a long weekend? At first I was a little annoyed that 4th of July was on a Tuesday and then I realized what this actually meant was essentially…FOUR DAY WEEKEND! Bahh!

We’re spending the weekend hanging out at home and then will spend a night or two up at the lake (and we get to see OTTO!) Neal’s family got a Golden Retriever puppy last week and he is seriously the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. (Photographic evidence here.) He sleeps in your arms like a baby and he is so calm and well-behaved. It hurts to look at him he’s so adorable and it’s all I can do not to smuggle him home with us in my tote bag.

Anyway, like all major holiday weekends, there are lot’s of sales happening and some good savings to be had! One of them being, er, actually, pretty much this WHOLE summer outfit, but most noteworthy, this yellow pom pom romper on sale for $26It’s currently fully stocked too but I don’t anticipate it being around for much longer, so you’ll definitely want to snap it up 😉 It runs true to size! Also on sale (in certain colors) are my favorite comfy flats from Splendid that I wear basically every day. Shipping is free on both, duh. Baublebar (where my earrings are from!) is also having a massive sale, up to 75% off!
