Polka Dot

I can't believe that I'm about to say this, but, I think I am ready for fall to make its arrival! I'm one of those people that is always anxious for the next season (anyone else like this?) Between this week being even hotter than most and the arrival of Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte on Monday (8/25!) I am ready for cooler temperatures.

To prepare for fall temperatures (that will not likely hit North Carolina until October....) I have been trying to find ways to transition my summer pieces into fall. While I still can't fathom wearing jeans during the day, they are a great alternative to skirts and shorts as the night time temperatures cool down a bit. I can still wear my favorite summer tops and blouses and even pair them with a blazer or cardigan if things get even more chilly. And let's be honest here, I'm cold 24/7, so I think I'll be pulling out the jeans, blazers, and cardigans sooner rather than later! 

I have worn this polka dot top many times this summer. It's such a classic closet staple and for $29 it can't be beat! The past few months I have paired it with shorts and skirts, but will now start pairing it with my favorite denim and blazers so that I can get even more wear out of it!

The Perfect Black Romper

I have been on the search for the perfect black romper all summer long to no avail. Any contenders either weren't my size or didn't fit me properly. One day I was online perusing (not shopping...there's a difference!) and I came across this black romper and had to make it mine! Usually I have no problem online shopping, but with rompers I'm always a little weary because ya never know what you're gonna get! Well, this one turned out to be perfect...seriously! It fits me so well, can be styled many different ways (I've already worn it three times!), can be cropped or long-sleeved, and the surprise low back is just too fun! Oh, and can we talk about these black Ray-Ban aviators for a second? I gravitate towards black clothing and accessories 24/7, so it only seemed natural for me to add these sunglasses from SmartBuyGlasses.com to my collection! I have worn them non-stop. For a night out while in Wilmington I paired this romper with wedges and a matching clutch. I am excited to transition this romper into fall. 

Today I am partnering with Julie Leah & Pretty Sweet Life to showcase three separate looks from one of our favorite boutiques, Mint Julep! They are always one of my go-to online shops for trendy, yet affordable clothes! This romper also comes in navy, which I will definitely be ordering soon!
