+ TOBI Keepin’ It Casual Romper (c/o) + Jeffrey Campbell La Cage Gladiator Sandals + H&M Choker +

Breezy rompers and gladiator sandals are one of the best combos. It took me a little while to get into rompers for whatever reason but life is so much easier with one and done pieces. The only thing you need is a pair of cool shoes to top it off. So excited to take this one deep into fall with it’s gorgeous bell sleeves. I’m picturing all the ways to style it now.

(Romper sent over by Tobi and all opinions are my own!)

Nothing like ringing in Florida’s (extra) warm weather with tiny pieces of clothing. Crops and short-shorts have always been my thing, whether I’m in the homeland, Summer-ing it up in New England, or pretending it’s not cold in London. I think it’s through these outfit proportions that I learned to love my body: a high-waist lengthens my short torso and visually cinches my waist, and a rising hem makes my average height appear to be modelesque by making my already long legs look longer. Gone are the days where ill-fitting clothes had people telling me that my pear-shape was “disproportional” and where I tried to accentuate a skinny waist above all else because at least something was skinny. It’s literally been years…at least half a decade. But loving myself is never any less exciting.
