Heartloom "Bronwyn" romper : Express tank : Steve Madden "Tirah" Macrame oxfords : Prada "Postcards" Paris sunglasses

Summer is the perfect time to wear a romper. Granted, it might not be the most convenient thing to have on in case of a bathroom emergency, but who needs convenience when you can feel like a 5-year-old again? This one, in particular, is so comfy that I could roll around in it all day and fall asleep in it too.

These photos show the ridiculous construction that B and I have been dealing with outside our home. Half of the street is torn up, and it's usually a big ordeal just to get out of the driveway. Well, we turned a bad situation into an opportunity by being mischievous and having an impromptu photoshoot with some of the big machines after the workers left.

Did you also notice something new on my face? Yes, yes, I broke down and got these after waiting forever to see them in person. Ugh, I really hate it when marketing campaigns work (on me). I also broke my vow not to buy any more designer sunnies after a traumatic beach incident with my last pair, but I think these are worth it. The medium cat eyes are perfectly oversized to fit my not-so-small face and the clear frames are the most versatile you can get. I did also try on the neon green ones which didn't nearly look as cool on me as it did on the model. I'm pretty sure they made me look like Slimer from Ghostbusters.

  8. Wow, that's kind of a really big inconvenience! Esp if you're leaving for work in the morning!

    But at least you got to play with it.

    The glasses are fun. I don't know if I'd break down and buy such a pricey pair. I'm really cheap.

  18. Val and Mani: Nope, we didn't catch you guys there, but then again, there were a ton of people at the fest! We had lots of fun too!

    Lindsey: The oxfords are comfortable! I do get a little rubbing on the back of my heel without socks, but I'm hoping that will go away once they're worn in.
