Black on Black

It's so hard to get away from the dark colors when it is so cold this winter. Besides the fact that it is hard to get out of bed in the morning, getting dressed for dinner when it's freezing and dark out makes a huge difference on what i wear. My husband and i went out for a casual dinner so i threw on some dark jeans, a black long sleeve shirt and a faux fur vest. To add a little spark, i wore my gold&black Louis Vuitton scarf. With Spring right around the corner, i'll try (my hardest) to make this my last dull all black outfit post!

Warmer Weather

This week, i'm headed to South Beach - more specifically, Miami, for one of my oldest and best friends bachelorette party. Last year, we went there for mine and had such an amazing time, we made the decision to go back. I've had an extremely hectic last couple weeks with some personal things going on, but i'm back to blogging and bringing my people what they want to read. I actually traveled to Florida this past week - not for a vacation - and had a major problem with my carry-on bag. I have a TSA approved carry-on that is also super cute. I purchased it at Longchamp and since have bought 2 more because they have been so great. I have never had a problem getting through security except this time! I'm sure all you ladies know how even on a three-day weekend, you pack your bags to the max. You always bring WAY more than you need and you never know what kind of adventure you may go on and what outfit you'll need for it. My problem was shoes. I brought like 6 pairs, but to be fair, i didn't know how long i was staying in Palm Beach. I also had to share with my mom so that's another great excuse to bring extras. Well, to continue with my story, they made me put my bag in that little square to make sure it fits and of course it didn't because i packed it to the brim. I wasn't the only one they were doing this do. Every person had to check if their bag fit in that tiny little square and they swore to me that if it didn't fit, it wouldn't fit in the overhead. I pouted and batted my eyes and they let me go with my bag, which fit overhead, but i have learned now that i cannot pack anymore than my bag is intended to fit. If it can't zip easily, it's too much. So, this weekend, i will be packing light so i have no problems. I will plan out all my outfits (maybe one extra, JUST INCASE!) and all my day outfits so i'm sure to pack just the right amount. I figured if i bring one or two versatile pair of shoes and one or two bags i can use to go out AND during the day, it will make my life easier. We should all learn to travel light… it's just so hard when there are so many great things to wear in such little time on a vacation!

Rompin' Around

I love rompers. However, it is not everyday that i can find one that works with my frame. I'm short and curvy so rompers aren't exactly made for my body type. I especially can't wear jumpsuits because i'm way too short(this doesn't prevent me from shopping for them for my tall friends!) Because i fell in love with so many rompers, i kept trying them on; different styles and different cuts to see if there was a certain designer or fabric that maybe worked for me. Finally, i did. I now own 4 rompers that i absolutely LOVE. I've put together a list of some that have worked for me and that are also on my list to buy… already knowing that the style will fit my body type. For all you long legged babes out there, you know you can wear rompers as well as jumpsuits so i didn't forget about you. I also put together some jumpsuits that are just fabulous, even if i can't pull them off!

Parade Day

There was so much going on during Parade Day it was hard to keep up. I've been doing this for a few years now and have learned that it a marathon and not a sprint when it comes to day drinking. I can't say the same about my first Parade Day, but it was definitely not as pretty as 2014. I mean, who can really say that their college years were? Besides that, my friends and I had a really good time and managed to get home and in bed by 11 PM. I would definitely call it a successful Saturday. I tried to document every bit of hilariousness that occurred throughout the day but it was very hard to keep track as most of it was completely ridiculous and probably shouldn't be broadcasted on my blog. However, i'm not one to hold back. Here is just a glimpse at what happened during Hoboken St. Patrick's Day: 

 Tiffany, making her first appearance on my blog, dressed perfectly for the occasion while still looking great!

 Lovely headband, James.

Yes, this happened.
