Pattern Mixing & New Wedges

This was an "A-Ha!" type outfit. I knew I wanted to be comfortable, and I wanted to wear a dress. This floral swing dress from Urban Planet was perfect... but the thin spaghetti straps were too revealing for work. Then I realized I had this striped crop top ad when I put it together... ta-da!  I added my new zippered wedges from Payless and mission accomplished! Cute & comfy.

I love, love, love stripes and floral together. It's the perfect way to mix 2 of my favorite patterns!

Beach Bodies

"This post contains affiliate links, and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links."

I love shopping for bathing suits... if it means not actually having to try it on. I'm the biggest I've ever been and I'm still getting used to my "new" body.  I wish I would have thought to check out Modcloth's selection of retro-inspired suits last year when I vacationed in Punta Cana... No doubt I would have had more confidence in strutting down the beach sans-coverup.

It's a pool party over at ModCloth, and you're invited! With so many bikinis and one pieces to pick from, you're bound to find a standout look that suits your style. And while you're at it, check out ModCloth's exploration of so-called "ideal" beach bodies in their new Swim-fographic! It's an intriguing look at how arbitrarily beauty standards have changed over time. Of course, ModCloth knows that every body is a beach body -- the only requirements are a beach, your bod, and a swimsuit you can't wait to flaunt!

Romper Love #Passion4Fashion Link Up

I'm obsessed with rompers this year. I own a few already and definitely want to get more! The best part about this Forever 21 romper is the back which I totally forgot to take a picture of... oops. And I can't even find a picture of it online, must be sold out.

The worse part about this romper is trying to get it off to go to the bathroom. Sorry if TMI, but it's quite the procedure! Take off the cardigan, unbutton the romper, wiggle out of romper... then wiggle back in, button the romper, put the cardigan back on... it's not impossible just annoying. But it's so cute, it's worth it!

Are you loving rompers this year as much as I am?
