Bell Sleeved

I channeled my inner Charlie's Angel in this bell-sleeved romper last night as I networked the night away at an event downtown. I spent most of the time outside attempting to avoid the sunlight so I wouldn't sweat off my make up, which happened anyways.

Here and There

My friend Erin moved back to town and it's been my mission to show her the best restaurants in town including El Oasis, my favorite food truck, just a mile away from my apartment. I broke in my new joggers for the trip and wore them on repeat throughout the weekend. I'll probably wear them again today too.

My Body by Victoria Challenge

For the past year, I've slowly noticed the boobs fitting tighter and tighter in a 34b and naturally, continued to slowly feel more and more uncomfortable in my bras, even though I wear the coziest ones from Victoria's Secret. When I was asked to participate in the Body by Victoria's Secret Challenge, I jumped at the chance because I, perhaps like you, would prefer to take a quiz to determine boob size than share an intimate moment in the dressing room with a stranger armed with a measuring tape.

Turns out, I'm a 34c. A small difference has made such a big change in my comfort and how I feel in clothes. Holy shit. Thanks perfect fit quiz!
I'm loving the new colors and lace details on the Body by Victoria bras. I'm normally a nude or black bra kind of girl, but I'm excited to spice up my bra collection with some color and lace and add the perfect t bra in the same color I already have it, but in the correct size.
I've been wearing this grey Body by Victoria lounge bra..just about anywhere and beyond just lounging. It goes well under my white tees and it's so soft. There's no underwire and I wish there was a little lift, but I suppose that would defeat the purpose of a lounge bra. 
Check the bra guide to help you get into the right fit!
Thanks for supporting collaborations such this with Victoria's Secret!

Under the Boardwalk

Threw this kimono over my new suit to skip through the shore in Atlantic City.

Travel Look

Tried the whole "half up, half down bun" thing and gotta say, I'm a fan. 1. because it's easy enough for me to do on my own and 2. it's perfect compromise of getting my hair out of my face, but having hair free and flowing. I wore this for day 1 of my road trip traveling to Pittsburgh. During our two nights in Pittsburgh, we experienced some good food at BRGR and the most amazing omelette at Coca Cafe with Terra and her precious daughter Stella, and some pretty great views of the city from Mount Washington. 
I felt like this was on point for traveling and unfortunately for Terra, by the she saw me at the tail end of the trip, I was wearing the same outfit as the day before and looked a mess, progressively looking more and more haggard throughout the last two days because of exhaustion and severe under packing.

Atlantic City

Atlantic City was the third stop on our road trip and we spent hours walking the boardwalk, eating saltwater taffy, soft serve ice cream cones and snapping touristy photos along the way. After a quick mid-afternoon nap, we made our way out to the boardwalk again to check out the carnival, casinos and eat dinner on the beach before we retired to bed around 9 p.m. like the grannies we are. 
It was so hot and a bit windy, making the dress set the perfect choice for ferris wheel rides and walking endlessly in the sun. I wanted something a bit whimsy for the night and paired the dress with a yellow clutch and ideal walking sandals. I can't wait to wear this again with a pair of heels!
