Although the end of summer brings summertime sadness it also brings end of the summer sales. You know what they say—without the bitter the sweet wouldn’t be as sweet and what a sweet sale it is! I got this look for under $100 and is every bit of both substance and style. This romper is from J.Crew and I love the loose fit and how thin the material is because it was so hot even being near the water [it also has pockets!]. The nice thing about rompers is you don’t have to put much effort in matching since it’s only one piece. I love solid colors and usually shy from patterns, however, this was simple enough and could match anything. When it gets colder, I plan to pair it with a jean jacket [definitely making a come back and trending., see it here].
I decided to use my new tote on our weekend trip and let’s just say it’s the same size as Harry Potter’s tent. I was able to fit my travel pillow, ipad, toiletry bag, and sweater! To make it even better, it was less than $20 and it’s reversible! I can use the black side to match outfits that are more colorful or use the red side as my pop of color for neutral ensembles. Lastly, I finished the look with a few accessories—gold strap sandals, my favorite tortoise sunglasses, and baseball cap [I got during our hike to Oia]. On a side note, always be sure to protect your eyes and skin from the sun and use at least 35+ UV protection sunscreen [nurses orders!].
