Romping Around


Good morning!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  It was a good one over here.  While it wasn't a typical Memorial Day weekend for me, it was exactly what I needed - aka a LOT of relaxing.  Nick was in Michigan at a bachelor party/golf trip from Friday-Sunday and most of my friends were out of town so I literally had almost the entire weekend to myself.  I won't bore you with the details but it included an at home spa night, a Scandal marathon on Netflix, eating whatever the heck I wanted to eat, a few long walks around the neighborhood and catching up on little things around the house.  I had to work on Saturday but even that 12 hour work day flew by and before I knew it, I was back home on my couch starting season 2 of Scandal.  Monday was fun as Nick was back home and we played tennis, went for a bike ride and had a BBQ with friends to end the weekend.  I was sad to see it end but I feel refreshed and ready to take on a new (short!) week.  Not to mention, ready for our championship volleyball game tonight - wish us luck!

I mentioned on Friday, that I popped into Forever 21 last week for the first time in who knows how long and was surprised to find a ton of amazing stuff.  I had kind of written F21 off as the store overwhelms me but my recent trip has me wondering why I ever doubted the place. My favorite find was this romper that I practically lived in this weekend.


Rompers have to be the best clothing invention ever.  They make getting dressed so easy and are beyond comfortable.  I mean they're practically an adult onesie.  It was 85 degrees on Monday in Chicago (finally) and this lightweight rayon fabric was perfect- no overheating happening here.  I have a 10% off code to Forever 21 that I needed to use before Wednesday so I jumped online to order a couple things and came across SO many great rompers, I had to share some of my favorites!  They're the perfect summer outfit - add sandals and sunglasses and you're good to go for the day.  They also work well as beach cover ups!




What's your favorite store to shop for rompers?
By the way, a lot of you commented on my maxi dress from this post and unfortunately it's not available online but I found a REALLY similar dress from Forever 21 (of course)!  I may have to get it, too.. I mean it is a different color than mine :)

  8. I love the look of rompers, but quick question... do you have to take the whole thing off to go to the bathroom? I think of these things.

  19. I love maxi dresses but I can honestly say I've never tried rompers, I feel like Keith wouldn't like it. He's picky about clothes, whether they be on him or me so yeah...but maybe one day!

  22. Your solo single lady weekend sounds like it was amazing! :) And you're adorable, too!

  23. Awww, you totally can rock a romper (not everyone can)! I did, though, write F21 off and have never looked back. I can't wear ANY of it to work so I don't buy it. I need clothes that can somewhat double for work and play.

  24. Yes, rompers! I've decided that's my "it" piece of clothing I'm working towards this summer. I've never felt like I could pull them off, but with the bikini series, I'm gonna do it :)

  25. I really love how you and Nick do so much together. That really stands out how y'all are intentional with each other. I need to pray for that in my future marriage. I'm glad you got some much needed time!
