One reason I’m actually sort of happy I didn’t go to Fashion Week: Bear got his first cold last week, and I promptly caught it from him about two days later. So I’ve been completely knocked out this weekend, and very relieved I wasn’t dealing with traveling, hotels, crowds, or anything NYFW-related these past few days.
However, back when I thought I was going, I bought a few cute little outfits as potential choices to bring with me, and this romper is one. I’m not sure it would have ultimately made the cut — it’s a little too casual for Lincoln Center, not quite my A-Game style. On the other hand, for everyday life here in Houston, I completely love it. (Also, the deep-V is incredibly breastfeeding-friendly… which most of my clothing choices revolve around these days!)
On the model, this was worn with nothing underneath (check it out here), which, OMG — they did a great job pinning it or something. Because I put it on without anything underneath… and I was naked. Fortunately, this little bandeau gave me a little coverage, and I think a tank could work underneath too.
And for those of you who like the style, I’ve linked to a few other cute options below! xo

If there’s one thing I update in my wardrobe every season, it’s my favorite pair of jeans.
I know, I know. Shouldn’t I pick out a new trend? Crop tops or leather or something novelty-ish and cool?
Nope. The pieces I reach for, day after day, aren’t those novelty trends. They’re denim.
This season, I’ve fallen completely in love with this par of Low Rise Slim Jeans from Land’s End. (Yes, Land’s End.) They’re the perfect fit and come in multiple different lenghts, so even petite girls like me can find the perfect fit! (The pair I’m wearing is size 2 and a 30″ inseam, if you’re curious!) I rolled them up a tiny bit at the cuff, but they fit great with or without that little accent. The quality is amazing and I love their dark wash!
And even better — they’re a total bargain at $69! For a girl who usually spends $150 or $200 on the pair of perfect jeans each season, these are completely mind-blowing. I need them in every style!
I paired these jeans with this adorable breton-striped top and a denim jacket, both from Land’s End too. The denim jacket is a total find as well — their fabric is soft, classic, and looks great dressed up or down. It has just enough stretch to flatter, but not so much that you have trouble moving or breathing. For this new mom who’s on the go constantly, they’re the perfect pair.

Remember these sunglasses? They were my absolute favorites last season, but this year, I’ve been falling in love with aviators more than ever! Still, though, when I was searching for the perfect pair to go along with this dress, these were what I reached for in an instant.
Because, let’s face it: they’re fun without being too serious, flattering for just about any face shape, and totally easy to wear. Best of all, they’re about $20 a pair (you can find them at your local CVS, Walmart, Walgreens or Target), so at that price, stock up in case you need extras!
And, seriously: this outfit is all about the accessories. Perfect sunnies, perfect chic necklace, perfect purse. This jeweled necklace is part of the Stripes and Sequins x Bauble Bar collection, and Grace is so incredibly talented and I’m thrilled to wear her beautiful pieces! Look for lots more in coming posts.
