2018 Cute Spring & Summer Rompers that we Need-Now // Sophia Ann Boutique

Needing a few new cute Spring and Summer Rompers? Look no further. I just have to talk about this gorgeous new romper from my clothing boutique, Sophia Ann Boutique! www.sophiaann.com

We all know that I’m personally obsessed with Rompers- and for a good reason! Not only are there so many different ways to wear them, you can dress them up or down with minimal effort for a day to night look.

SHOP: ROMPER // SIMILAR CARDIGAN (Under $20) // BAG // FLOPPY HAT

Rompers are extremely easy to wear- if I’m having “one of those days” where I just don’t feel like putting a full-on outfit together (mama’s, I know you know exactly what I’m talking about!) rompers and dresses are my go-to! They truly are closet staples!

This specific romper is classy and chic, is lined and has a gorgeous button-down v-neck detailing that I’m obsessed with! (It’s all about those details, ladies!) Woven light teal polyester fabric parades down a fitted, button down v-neck top bodice that flows down into adorable, relaxed, and breezy shorts. The long, flowy sleeves have elasticized cuffs and this romper is extremely flattering on all body types!

For a chic-and-effortless day look I’ll be pairing this specific romper with a flirty wedge ($32)- the cardigan, floppy hat, and bag that I linked above for you, and my favorite layering necklaces from Stella & Dot (I’ll post them below!)

1. Stella & Dot | Kari Layered Necklace (Also Available in Silver)

This necklace is an accessories wardrobe staple because it’s delicate and versatile to complement any look. It features a shiny gold (or silver) hammered pendant and arc that’s suspended from two delicate chains. You can wear them together as one cohesive look or they come apart so that you can wear each strand separately!

• Shiny Gold (or Silver) Finish
• 18″ 33″ with 2″ Extender
• Lobster Clasp Closure

I’ll be adding another layer to the Kari Necklace with:

2. Stella & Dot | Signature Engravable Disc Necklace (Also Available in Silver and Rose Gold)

These personalized beauties are a great gift for yourself or someone that you love! You can personalize with initials, name, dates, geographic coordinates, and more. I personally have my marriage monogram engraved on mine- and all engraving is complementary!

• 16″ length with 2″ extender.
• 23 mm round disc.
• Gold-plated brass. (Also Silver and Rose Gold)
• Pouch included

Just because Monday’s are boring doesn’t mean your outfit has to be!

Outfit Goals from Head to Toe // Spring & Summer 2018 Look

ACCESSORIES: Stella & Dot | Pave Chain Link Bracelet // Farren Pulley Bracelet, Gold (Also Available in Silver) // Anda Intention Bracelet, Strength (Courage Also Available)

OUTFIT: SIMILAR JACKET // TOP (Also HERE & HERE) // DENIM // SHOES

This outfit is a little piece of Spring heaven. So many bright pops of color with a trendy camo jacket is what Spring is all about. Gently transitioning into the full on color of summer with simple pops of color!

This doesn’t have to be with actual clothing pieces- if you’re more of a “neutral” wardrobe kinda gal and don’t have many bright clothes you can always incorporate those pops of color with your accessories instead!

Bright chandeliers are my top suggestion, and here are a few of my top picks for the season! Buy them now before they sell out, and thank me later!

 

Stella & Dot (Rebecca Minkoff Collaboration)| Pixie Chandeliers // If studs are more your style, check out THESE Pixie Studs!

Global luxury designer, entrepreneur and mother, Rebecca Minkoff has made her mark in the fashion industry with feminine, yet subtly edgy designs. In an exciting new collaboration, these special pieces are both delicate and powerful, bold and approachable.

Mixing glamorous sparkle with a chic waterfall. A feminine frame holds beautiful neutral and green tones with accents of vintage gold.

• Vintage Gold Finish
• 2 1/2” Length
• Titanium Posts
• Medium Weight

 

Stella & Dot | Kessie Drop Earrings

Hand beaded blush, orange, and red drops come together to make a statement in fabulous ombre. THESE EARRINGS ARE EVERYTHING!

• Shiny Gold Finish
• 2 ½”, Statement Weight
• Titanium Ear Posts

 

Stella & Dot | Riva Tassel Earrings (Also Available in Burgundy)

These gorgeous chandeliers are so cool because you can wear them as a statement chandelier OR you can remove the Tassel part and wear them as a soft stud!

• Shiny Gold Finish
• Titanium Posts
• 2 ¾” Length
• Medium Weight

 

Pops of color can turn even the most plain-Jane outfit into a fab spring/summer outfit in seconds with very little effort! How are you adding color into your wardrobe this season? Tell me in the comments!

Happy Sunday, Fashionistas!

Enjoying our Spring Saturday // Garden, Icecream, Laughter, and a whole-lotta gorgeous North Carolina weather!

Saturday’s are for shopping (obviously) so today we did something we haven’t done yet in this town..

Those of y’all that know me personally or have been following along with me for a while now already know that I try to avoid shopping malls like the plague. For many reasons, but the main one being my anxiety skyrocketing from being around way too many random people at once- all pushing and shoving trying to find the “deals” that these big corporate stores are having that day- no thank you. I need my personal space and don’t enjoy strangers brushing up on me. However, since we couldn’t find these particular shades that Jeff was eyeing at another brick-and-mortar store, we knew the mall would surely have them- and they did.

I’m pretty sure this was also the first trip to the mall that Sophia will actually remember- and let me tell ya’, this girl was a fan! She loves shopping, (The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree there, friends!) she loves food, and she loved the big cookie she got for being such a good girl! (Any fellow mamas spoil the crap out of their kids if they don’t act a fool in public? I see you)

We came home, got messy in our garden, played outside and then had more treats. This weather is too beautiful not to soak up every second!

One of the most beautiful things about being a parent is watching your children fall madly in love with the hobbies that you love. I absolutely adore that most of the hobbies Sophia has picked up on show her how to take care of things.

Gardening is a big hobby of mine that I believe teaches wonderful life lessons. With little eyes always watching, I believe it’s so important to bestow meaningful activities upon our children rather than the “norm” nowadays. (especially in this day in age)

We started last year when I wanted to dabble into a vegetable garden. She helped me plant the peppers and zucchini’s from seeds and she beamed from ear to ear when she saw them growing. After we planted the seeds, she watered them every single day and anticipated their growth. Life lesson learned: “In life, we have to take care of things if we want them to return the favor,” and also, “Don’t rush the process, good things take time. And sometime more time”

SHOP: SIMILAR BOWS (Also HERE & HERE & HERE) Her outfit was a gift from her auntie- but HERES another romper I’m loving)

I hope everyone has had the most fabulous Saturday like we have! How do you spend your Saturday’s? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
