Summer to Fall Style: One Kimono, two looks

If you haven’t already, you please check out The Asterisk Boutique – a contemporary women’s clothing boutique in Dixon, Illinois, that is ran by a small team and the sweetest owner. The styles available are perfect for bodies of all sizes.

If you follow the boutique on Instagram, you can get some serious inspiration on how to wear what is available on site. And you don’t have to be in Illinois to shop. 😉 You can shop right from here.

The kimono below is from the boutique’s fall collection. Can you tell by the beautiful burnt orange color? The great thing, is that it is super light, which makes it easy to wear it as we transition from summer to fall.

Summer Look

On the first look, I wore the kimono with a plain white tank, distressed shorts and my favorite wedges. Then accessorized with three tiered earrings, animal print bangle and my wooden watch.

Back to School Shopping with Rose (My Little)

Hi, my name is Rose. I am starting second grade this year and soon will be seven years old. Today, I’m taking over the blog to share my favorite back to school outfits.

Accessories

First, I want to thank Lilypop Baby for my bows. I love them all, the pretty colors on the rainbow bow, the glitter on the pink one and the silver touch on the blue one; which is also one of my favorite colors. 🙂 Keep scrolling to see how I styled my outfits with these pretty bows.

Fun Graphic Tees

I also want to thank Little Hippie Threats for sending me two cute t-shirts, one that says Oh Grape and one that says Healthy Hippie – which you’ll see on social media. 😉 I just thought they were both so cute when I first saw them. The Big Rainbow bow I am wearing with this outfit I got at Claire’s and it’s from Jojo’s collection.

Pinstripe Off The Shoulder Dress

Happy Friday Y’all! The last two weeks have been pretty crazy. But I am back with fresh content and outfit ideas. 😉 My latest obsession is this soft and feminine pinstripe fabric; the best thing is that there are so many styles to choose from, dresses, blouses, rompers, you name it. I found this cute dress and couldn’t leave it behind; I mean look at the sleeves. I paired it with my super comfy wedges, a neutral clutch and minimal jewelry – which you can shop right from this post. So, keep scrolling to find similar options.

Road Trip Getaway to Savannah

Savannah! Knowing that I lived in Georgia for a few years before, you probably expect me to say that I have visited Savannah several times. Truth is, that we had to move away for me to become interested in visiting. For whatever reason, we always traveled South, to Florida. On this last trip to Georgia, I decided that Savannah was a MUST! And I’m glad that we did it.

Day 1 –  We arrived and checked in at Hotel Indigo on Bay Street. The staff was welcoming and resourceful. The room was clean, modern and had a great view. After deciding what our night would look like, we went downstairs to Five Oaks Taproom for drinks and walked over to River St. for dinner at Chart House. We then walked around town a bit and called it a night – it’s age catching up with us. Just kidding! It’s really just parenthood. 🙂

Friday Favorite: Simply Earth’s Essential Oils

You’ve probably heard a lot about essential oils and have become curious –  I know I have! I mean, I know people who swear by them and all the benefits these provide; from better sleep to being more alert.

Since I wanted to personally find out what these oils were about, when a fellow blogger introduced me to Simply Earth; I took advantage of the opportunity to partner with them. Especially, because I liked what this company offers.

Simply Earth, gives back! And this is a big deal for me when trying new products. A total of 13% of their profits helps to stop human traffic.

So, what is Simply Earth? It’s an oil recipe box that works on a subscription system – monthly and quarterly. It includes 4 essential oils shipped for free to you. If you’re a complete beginner, like me – you may be able to receive a free diffuser when you start your subscription.

Five Ways to Add Personality to your Apartment – without Breaking the Bank

Getting a new apartment is an exciting time. I remember the very first time I got my first apartment without my family or roommates. It was so exciting! All throughout college, I had lived with roommates and for the most part didn’t do much decorating because it was a shared space. So when I was getting my first apartment alone, I couldn’t wait to start planning how I would make it my own.

That being said I was also a new college grad with limited funds. I knew I wanted to add my personality to the place but I also knew that I needed to do so on a budget. Here are five smart ways to add personality to your new apartment without breaking the bank.

Make Your Own Art

I didn’t initially plan to make my art. I went to a few places, like Ross and Marshalls, to look for art. Store after store I just couldn’t find anything I wanted to look at every day. I went to a local discount arts and crafts store to see what they had in stock.
