Stripes+Fab Finds

Hi Friends! Hope everyone is doing well - Things have been just a tad crazy these days (scroll to the end for life updates), but I'm determined to keep the style snaps coming! I wanted to share with you all a few recent finds. Trending Spring 17 as we know it are stripes! I'm loving this classic pattern and they never seem to go out of style. Linen/Poplin blends are ALL over and I have been obsessing over this Old Navy striped jumpsuit for the past couple of weeks. This was one of my Memorial Day weekend finds/day date outfits (see here). My previous boss and I share a madddd love for Old Navy (ugh why did it have to be so close to work) and we couldn't resist the occasional pop in on our way back from meetings. Everything is always right on trend and right on price - Luckily I didn't go completely nuts in there this time and ended up with this jumpsuit. Unfortunately online only XS is available (runs big) but there are two other cute prints online. Check stores too for any left in stock. Ah I've had so many compliments on it and it's been a great buy since it's on it's 4th wear lol.

Jumpsuits and dresses are instant easy summer outfits and for me I like adding different accessories and shoes after each wear. Who says each look has to be the same? I chose my comfy Forever21 fringe sandals (similar here) and white Mansur Gavriel bag for a casual day look. My bag was also another fab find treasure! I have had this style on my list but could not bring myself to the $500+ price point. I was able to find this large bucket bag at my FAVORITE resale shop in Chelsea for well under it's full price ticket. :) Leaving me a happy camper!

G&G Life Update : So this past weekend I visited Houston and found my apartment (yay SO excited, upgrade from the studio life) and got the car/drivers license thing situated. So driving seems like riding a bike? lol It's been a few years but we managed to get from point A to B just fine (right mom?). I also found some REALLY great home decor finds at Hobby Lobby and surprisingly Walmart. These images here, here, and here have been my inspiration. OH MAN I forgot how great Hobby Lobby is - I spent just under $160 and got a chair, and giant palm tree, and a marble side table. I felt so accomplished lol sales and bargain hunting at it's finest! For the most part I am able to keep pretty much all of my current apartment decor/furniture with the move and made a few updates with my recent finds.

My trip back to the city was absolutely miserable yesterday. I woke up at 4am only to board a plane at 8am with a 101 fever, aches, and a massive sore throat. NOT the way to planned to roll out...after I was SO sure my ears and head were going to explode in the air I went straight to the doctor once we landed. Pretty loaded up on meds/rest for the next few days right now. Hey, 4 years of not being sick, it was a good run lol. Resting up before the packing party this weekend and final farewells.

Hope y'all are having a great week so far! Happy Hump dayyyyy.
