Fringe, Rompers and Jewels on a Budget


It is almost Friday! Looks like we've about made it through another week! I hope all of you academics (students, teachers, moms, or anyone!) have had a successful week of school and are getting back into the groove of things. I was in Target yesterday (weekly outing obviously) and I already saw where they are setting up the Halloween aisles. That means we are officially in the last days of summer (sigh). Instead of getting choked up and crying, I decided to show one of my favorite rompers of the summer and why you can still wear one like it.

I've been sporting the romper ALL summer and I knew when I came across this Elan off the shoulder, fringed romper it would be on rotation this summer. First off, I'm about style but it has to be comfortable. Rompers like this almost feel like pajamas, they are great for grabbing margaritas with the girls, casual date nights, or even class. Super comfy while still looking put together. I also recently bought this navy knot bell back romper (under $100 plus look at that back!) which will be great for fall and also provides a little kick to a somewhat basic piece. I also am obsessing over this romantic romper (under $100), love the dramatic and flattering black with delicate lace detailing. For a fun night out or even just a trip to the movies, this romper has the flattering bell sleeves but breaks up basic black with a soft floral print. If you are afraid of wearing a romper because you think you will look like some type of infant, please don't be! I thought the same thing but with the majority of styles now rompers essentially look like dresses and move that way. Try one like this which has a looser short until you warm up till the full blown romper look.

Now let's talk some jewelry! I have worn this beautiful Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace in several posts lately. I got it from the fall Mystic Bazaar collection (which is amazing!) via the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I'll be honest, I love jewelry and I think everyone should have a few pieces that are designer that you can wear and keep for years. However, it is rare for me to pay over $50 for a single piece. I love necklaces so I am always on the hunt for new styles. I tend to do more minimal jewelry so statement necklaces are usually my centerpiece. I was shocked to see some pieces that looked almost identical to some of my more expensive jewelry like this Kendra Scott inspired necklace from Lucca Lane for $18. Check out these beauties which look exactly like the designer brand ranging from $10-$18 via Gray Monroe. I love Accessory Concierge for great deals and products, in fact I ordered this Wooden Tusk Pendant Necklace ($32) and finally purchased the Leaves of Brass Bracelet ($25) I've been lusting after for weeks. Save up for those special pieces you just can't live without and save on trendier items that you may want just for a few looks or for a season.
