First of all, so sorry in the lack of posting! I had all these posts ideas and collaborations lined but then work took over and pretty soon I realized I ignored all the wedding stuff and now only have a weekend to get the remaining wedding stuff! I'll do my best to post as much as I can. I do promise that after the wedding, I can commit more to the blog!

Now onto this post. I have been obsessing over anything white. It could be because I'm in total bridal mode. All my purchases lately have been all white so that I can wear it during the week and weekend of my wedding haha. For instance, I've bought this drop waist dress but also considering purchasing this sundress, want this white lace romper, and now I'm on a hunt for a white distressed shorts. Ideas where I can get an affordable white distressed shorts? The ones I originally wanted sold out :( So when I saw this shirtdress at Loft, I just knew it I had to have it in my closet. It's the perfect classic, white dress. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Rompers Under $50

Rompers

Now that the weather is starting to be more consistent, I can't help but shop for rompers. I love rompers! They're the perfect combination of trendy, chic, classic, and pure laziness. You're probably like huh laziness, what do you mean? Well, since they're just one item to wear, you seriously don't have to worry about finding a top and bottom. They're like dresses but you can 'romp' around without worrying about being lady like. Every time I shop online, I look for rompers for any occasion. I'm loving the printed, neutral, and classic ones. Since I'm on a tighter budget these days, I've been on a hunt for a more affordable romper(s). Luckily, I was able to find a lot under $50. These are my top favorites under $50!

Black & White Off-Shoulder









Dress: Sheinside (only $15!)
Shoes: Old Navy (old), similar here
Hat: Old Navy (old), similar here

I've been obsessing over off-shoulder dresses lately. Something about them is fun, feminine, casual, beachy, and dressy. They're pretty much perfect for any occasion. To celebrate Chicago's (finally) nice weather again, I went for this classic black and white striped dress from Sheinside (be patient with shipping!). It just seems so fitting to start the summer weather with this look. It is even better that I only paid $15 for it! So rare to buy any piece of clothing for under $20 these days. It will be no surprise when you see me wearing more off-shoulder dresses. I hope you all have a great weekend!

Just Casual








Vest: J. Crew
Dress: c/o Triple Thread, also love this (see more options below under $30)
Shoes: JustFab, also love this
Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs (old), similar here

Lately, I've been drawn to casual pieces or at least making them more casual. I love the relaxed feel of a casual style. When I came across this Triple Thread dress, I was intrigued by its floral prints and feminine style. I actually saw myself enhancing the feminine style by pairing it with these Steve Madden wedges and floppy hat for a potential date night outfit. But lately, I've been exhausted and sometimes looking more feminine requires more effort. So I decided to just throw on my J.Crew denim vest and booties and went for a casual dinner in the neighborhood with outdoor seating of course!

New Watch










Top: J. Crew (on sale plus additional 50% off with code SUMMERSTYLE)
Jeans: J. Crew (on sale plus additional 50% off with code  SUMMERSTYLE)
Sandals: Dirty Laundry (less than $26!)
Bag: Nordstrom (less than $50!)
Watch: c/o MVMT (take $10 off with code 'rdulay')

I'm not sure if you noticed, but one of the only watches I've been wearing is my rose gold Marc by Marc Jacobs that Tre got for me four years ago.  It has been awhile since I bought a watch. I've been meaning to get myself a gold watch since a new one is long over due. I knew I wanted the same look, feel, but much more lightweight. I have a tiny wrist, so I have to be selective on how the watch sits on my wrist. When I came across MVMT's watches, I was drawn by their classic look. I love the metal material and they didn't look chunky. I was even more surprised when I received it. Not only does it have a nice metal finish, slim look, but it was also lightweight. So glad I took the risk to try out their watches. No doubt that you will see this watch on repeat multiple times :) If you love it as much as I do, you can get it $10 off. Just be sure to enter 'rdulay' at the checkout!
