Chambray Romper

Excuse my 3 week hiatus, June has been a crazy month! I've had visitors in town since Memorial Day weekend and I've been non-stop! But after much demand, I'm back! And by much demand, I mean text messages from my mom :) 

I actually wore this outfit a few weeks ago to go to a winery and wine tasting at the Belle Meade Plantation down the road from my apartment. It is so pretty and we happened to be there the day of a wedding so we had fun watching the bride take some pre-wedding pictures. 

I got this romper on super sale from Old Navy a couple of  months ago and its so easy to dress up or down! I'm not going to lie, I was torn at first if I liked it or not. I was stuck between looking like a trendy mechanic or just trendy, but I decided to  keep it and I'm glad I did! 

This would also be a great option for 4th of July this weekend - I paired it with red lips to go out to dinner and out later in the night and with a few more red accessories, and not hot pink, it would be the perfect red, white and blue ensemble! I would recommend sizing down though. I am usually a medium in rompers, especially for the length, and I wish I got this in a small because it's so big in the waist.

Friday Five

In honor of National Donut Day, today's Friday Five is all about the donut! Quick funny backstory behind me and donuts. I noticed at the beginning of the year that donuts were popping up everywhere (see above!) and tried to seriously tell my coworkers that  donuts were trendy. Now, imagine sitting in a conference room and there's me, dead serious, talking about trendy donuts. As you can guess, I still haven't lived it down. In fact, before I moved to Nashville, my coworkers got me a going away cake.... in the form of a donut. I rarely even eat donuts! Maybe once a year, if that! (Munchkins don't count :) ) But, my grandparents used to bring over donuts every Sunday, so they hold a little special place in my heart. 

In other news, my friend from home is in town this weekend and the countdown to CMA Fest is down to less than a week! I'm pretty sure I'm more excited to see my brother and friends than CMA Fest itself! It's already been a busy June and we're barely a week in, but I'll take it!

I hope you all have fun weekend plans! Thanks for stopping by!

Neutrals & Neons

So, I have a few confessions to make before this post goes anywhere. I have an obsession with white on white. I think I'm addicted to Target. And it's up for debate whether or not I have a shopping problem. With that being said, I went to Target last week during lunch to return something (of course) and came out with this clutch and these shoes. In my defense, the shoes were on clearance for $10. TEN DOLLARS. And I had been eyeing similar pairs for a while. 

Needless to say, I spent the remainder of the afternoon at work thinking of how I could work this clutch and these shoes into an outfit for a concert I was going to that night and viola. This was the end result. The night was kicking off Memorial Day weekend so white on white was even more appropriate! Even though I never really stopped wearing white.... I love the lace detailing on this shirt, I've already worn it a few times!

This gorgeous necklace, which I also mentioned here, is one of the Rocksbox gems I received and I have worn it so much. I still can't decide if I should just buy it because it's on the pricier side, but I still can't part with it just yet! Don't forget to use the code colleenbff103 at checkout or use this link for a FREE month of Rocksbox!
