weekends were made for rompin' around

weekends were made for wearing rompers
(and ripped jeans, and cropped tops, and leggings,
and pretty much everything else you want to
 but can't wear to the office), right?

whether spring, summer, or fall, rompers are one
of my favorite styles. as they weather changes, 
adding a pair tights, ankle boots, and an
 oversized sweater can make rompers 
seasonally appropriate; rompers with long sleeves 
are a great cool-weather alternative, too!
my office requires business professional attire
monday through thursday, but blue denim can be
worn on friday (sadly, my super ripped jeans are not
acceptable, despite trying to sneakily wear them on
one or more occasions). rompers are another no-go,
which means i am drawn to these items first when
heading out on the weekends. who doesn't 
love a romper for brunch or ripped jeans and
flannel while running errands?

this weekend, sleep is a top priority!
work, school, babysitting, and adjusting
to the change in weather kept this girl particularly
busy. that, and attempting to unpack in order to get settled
in my new home; i have been a nomad for the past
several weeks, bouncing back and forth 
between different houses while my new, permanent 
home was being worked on. alas, it is just
about ready!
do you have any fun plans this weekend?
if the weather cooperates, i am hoping to also
take photos for my blog, go for a walk with a girlfriend,
and stop by a local pumpkin patch (oh the photo
opportunities at the pumpkin patch!).

romper: nordstrom (old; similar here), rings: forever 21,
purse and wedges: thrifted (via seattle goodwill)

i have a slight confession. amidst moving, i 
packed up the majority of my shoes, purses, and other
accessories and put them in my storage unit. 
when putting together an outfit for this planned
photo shoot, i didn't have much in the way of
end-of-summer or fall attire. i thought
this romper would be fun to style, and i challenged
myself to thrift pieces to wear with it for less
than $30. as you likely know, $30 can go
a long way when thrift or consignment shopping.

unfortunately, the brand has worn off my 
adorable fringe bag, but the cost of the purse
and my franco sarto sandals was $25!
thrifting for the win!
