Frilly in Floral

Monday, June 25, 2018

         Summer is officially here and so is the heat and the humidity.  It's definitely time to break out the rompers, shorts, and flowy skirts.  Since the sun is out every day, I thought that this frilly floral romper from Shein was the perfect piece to welcome the summer months.      

        And here to say, "hello" are these vibrant firecracker clusters of flowers.  According to the plant identifier app on my phone, these blossoms are Chinese Ixora flowers.  If there are any horticulturalists out there who are reading this post, please be sure to correct me if I'm wrong. Whether these really are Chinese Ixoras or not, they are incredibly beautiful!  

         First, thank you to Shein for sending me this ruffly romper!  From the front, this romper looks super adorable, but the criss-cross straps and the bow on the back take this look to a whole new level of cuteness!  I styled it with an over-sized denim jacket and white sneakers for a relaxed casual look.  Yes, sneakers.  In all the years I've been blogging, I've never styled sneakers in a blog post.  As you know, I'm more of a high heel, boots, and ballet flats kinda gal, but I've been loving these ever since I bought them.    

        And what better way to doll up this look than with gold-toned jewelry pieces, and a cute structured white purse?  To tie the whole gold theme together, I draped a gold chain necklace over the front.  Sometimes it's fun to accessorize an accessory and little details like that make an outfit extra special. 

        And of course, no summer outfit in the sun is complete without a pair of sunnies.  For this look, I went for these John Lenon-inspired round sunnies because they matched perfectly with my circular mother-of-pearl earrings.   

         Voila!  Here's my first outfit for summer 2018!  I hope you liked the way I styled this romper, and if you would like to add this piece to your summer wardrobe, I've linked it below.  Thank you so much for stopping by Elizabeth, Marie, and Me!  As always, I am sending you lots of love from my heart to yours!
