What I'm Loving Wednesday...

I'm going to go ahead and apologize for this super random blog post… I wanted to do things a little different and simply talk about what I'm loving as well as some of the things going on in my life lately. So let's get started!


First up, this black lace romper is back in stock in all sizes - you may remember it from this blog post. It sold out really quickly last time so snag it if you want it! Sizing tip - the size 4 fits like an XS. It's one of my favorite rompers I own, mainly because it's so comfy.

Secondly, how about some apartment updates? My bedroom is finally starting to come together. It's amazing how long it takes furniture to ship and deliver - sometimes longer than a month. It makes it very difficult to decorate! It feels so nice to finally have a comforter and pillows though… it makes the room feel complete, even though it still has a long way to go. I'm particularly excited about the Caitlin Wilson pillows - there are so many fun prints and patterns, you definitely have to check them out!

In my bedroom I still need some prints for the walls, a lingerie chest, and I'm thinking of adding a vanity too.

I was really excited yesterday because my bar stools arrived (they came in three huge boxes and it took me nearly two hours to unpack them all!). Here's a picture from my snapchat yesterday… you can't see them too well but they are rattan barstools from Joss & Main. I still haven't purchased a kitchen table yet, so I'm happy to finally have somewhere to sit and eat meals haha!


I love Joss & Main because they are constantly running great deals on home decor, but sometimes you only have a small window to make the purchase you want. When the items sell out, they're gone for good! When my apartment is a little more "finished" looking I will definitely dedicate a whole post to it.


Let's talk about something fun, and a little unusual - pool floats. Because who doesn't like pool floats!? For my mom's birthday this year, she asked for some cute floats. My family and I got her a huge swan and a huge flamingo (shown above)… but there are so many cute ones out there. I particularly want the giant slice of pizza!

Okay, y'all know I'm a huge fan of pineapples (especially if you caught yesterday's post). Well, how adorable is this delicate pineapple ring from Etsy? I ordered one a few weeks ago and have been checking the mail every day with high hopes. Etsy seriously has the cutest stuff, and did you know they also sell furniture?

So have you guys seen the Mary y Sol woven totes this year? The ones with the huge pom poms? They are so, so cute but I can't justify spending $115 on a straw tote since I already bought one this year. Well I was browsing online recently and came across some really similar bags that I love just as much - for only $24! Get the designer version here & here, and the more affordable option here.

And finally, here's one of my favorite outfits I've worn this week. This romper is so colorful, fun and comfy! I wore it to my Papa's 85th birthday party last weekend.
