Summer to Fall: Romper Style


Hi friends.  I am back with another wear now and later post, see the how I styled my white dress for summer and fall here.   As we start to think about transitioning from summer, insert sob here, to fall I am reaching for some of my favorite pieces that didn't get any wear at the lake, such as this little romper from Marshalls.  Guess what?!?  We are getting a Marshall's here next week and I am so excited.  Now that I've had success shopping at Winners and Marshall's, see tips for shopping in these store here, I am excited to hit them up fairly regularly.  


This is my last week of official summer, though I've been working half days from home/office/school, but we were able to get downtown for a picnic for a family picnic lunch.  Once winter descends upon us it's hard to get downtown as a family and we all love the river/bridge views that our city provides us so I am so happy that we seized this opportunity to enjoy it before schedules, routines and life takes over our carefree summer days.  I was happy to have an opportunity to dress up a little and decided to pair the romper with  my pearly pink mules that I purchased at Nordstrom Rack while in Portland and my trusted little white backpack from London.  This backpack is super cute and functional.  Halie loves it too and has been "borrowing" it a lot lately, along with some of my clothes.   Hmmmm.  I am not sure how I feel about us "sharing" clothing.  






How will I wear it in the fall?  Well ladies first things first.  I got new hair!!!!  Yep, I went darker, brunette, inspired by Becca Kufrin from the Bachelorette.  I love, love, love it.  It totally feels like me, probably because it's pretty close to my natural color only better and shinier.  Anyway, as the days and evenings get chillier, I have my jean jacket (sale alert) to throw over it.  I love my jean jacket, it's completely neutral and goes with anything and everything it seems.  A great investment piece in my opinion that is good through all seasons, even in winter I use it sometimes over little dresses inside, kind of like a blazer/cardigan.  Anyway, I absolutely love how pink and gray go together like PB &J so I pulled out my little gray booties, and added the darker shade of burgundy to the mix.  And the lips!!!   I went way out of my comfort zone last winter when I picked this rich, bold,  burgundy shade, Diva,  up from Mac and have loved it ever since!  What's your favorite lipstick shades for fall?  



Have a great weekend everyone.  I am getting to meet Deena from Shoes to Shiraz and Lana from My New Happy this weekend and I am as giddy as can be.  Teeheehee.
