The Summer of the Romper

Ok, I am officially declaring rompers the uniform of the summer this year!  I am so in love with this military-inspired one from American Eagle.  Dress it up, dress it down - you can't go wrong!  I also love that I will be able to easily transition this romper into fall.  Add some suede booties, layer an oversized cardigan, top it off with a felt floppy hat and voila'!  With that being said, I can officially say that rompers have been my go-to choice this summer.  I think it's been a combination of not finding a ton of casual dresses that I like this year and the fact that there are so many great romper options!  

We snapped these photos before dinner at Max's in the North Side on Friday.  There was a Farmer's Market set up and I  couldn't resist snatching up one of these beautiful sunflower bouquets.  They really might be the happiest flower!  The North Side is such a wonderful mix of old and new that it didn't take long to find a great backdrop.  As you can see at the end here, I even got caught trying to snap a selfie for Instagram.  I know this is going to sound really strange coming from a blogger - but I hate selfies. Even the word itself causes a slight gag reaction! LOL.  However, if I am going to commit to this blogging thing, it's part of the job description!  I hope everyone had a rejuvenating weekend and is ready to conquer this week!  

Oh - and don't forget to check out my Instagram account this week!  We are giving away a Tory Burch tote, other Tory accessories, and a $100 Target Gift Card!
