My Style

My style: a beaded clutch paired with a “little black romper”

Like it or not, we are on to a new week yet again! I have to say, I was a little bit sad to see this Monday roll around, as I am returning home from an absolutely wonderful weekend at the Food & Wine Conference in Orlando. If you were following my tweets or Instagram, you probably caught snippets of what I was up to…which happened to be a lot of great food, wine, learning, meeting new friends, and the like. Oh, and I did get to ride in a Rolls Royce yesterday…that was pretty cool. I adore the surge of energy I get when I return from conferences: although it is slightly difficult for me to get up and running this morning after such a busy weekend, I now have a fresh list of items to tackle, as well as a renewed sense of purpose.

Annnnyway…let’s get on to today’s outfit, shall we? I have to admit: I am somewhat surprised at how popular rompers have remained. The first time I bought one/wore it on the blog was in August of 2011…almost two years ago! And wouldn’t you know it…they’re still going strong. I constantly see them on display in stores. I can’t say I’m upset about it…they’re fun!

If you are worried about a romper looking too juvenile, I would suggest sticking with classic black. You can never go wrong with black, am I right? You can then add in pops of color and pattern with your accessories…

beaded clutch

Can we take a moment to talk about this beaded clutch? Marshalls sent it to me as part of ProjectFAB, and I was instantly in love with the pattern paired with brightly colored beads. The clutch can be found in many different color variations, and it only rings in at $19.99. Awesome. I knew it would pop fantastically against my black outfit; it’s definitely an eye catcher!

Are you a fan of classic black with pops of pattern, or do you prefer to go wild with color?
