Knitted Tassel Cape for Summer

We took a little road trip the other day and I just had to stop on this little side road for some photos! The wide open road shaded by the canopy of trees had me itching to plan our next trip. We have a lot of changes coming in the next few weeks so I know a vacation is definitely out of the question, but we do have our annual Thanksgiving trip to Kentucky to look forward to and I am already planning a fun tablescape, and maybe a few outfits!

One thing I know for sure is going with me is this cozy tassel cape from Chicwish! It gives me so many 1970's boho vibes but isn't too heavy to wear during that in between summer and fall time. When the air gets crisp, I'll layer a long sleeve top and jeans underneath for extra coziness. I'm wearing the small/medium and it's plenty roomy (I'm typically a size 6/8).

Another place this poncho was just made for is a campfire! Wouldn't this be so cozy to wrap up in by the fire, hot cocoa in hand? I think a s'mores session is in my future! There's just something about these colors and textures that makes me want to get outdoors or hit the road! We always take road trips to our vacation destinations to save money, but lately I've been enjoying the journey, taking weekend drives to the outskirts of town or to neighboring cities just to explore new areas. It's been really interesting discovering new locales and I can't wait to share some exciting news with y'all soon!


Green Floral Romper

So I may have missed the actual Farmers Market when I wore this darling romper outfit, but it didn't stop me from living my best garden-filled dreams at the local Lowe's nursery! Ha! I've always been disappointed that I wasn't blessed with the green thumb that both of my grandmothers seem to have, although if we're being honest, I've never put in much effort either. Do you have any tips for getting started with gardening/landscaping?

It's funny that I love flowers so much and yet have very little practice with the real thing (my first job was at a craft store called Ben Franklin so I had plenty of experience with silks!). It's no surprise, then, that when I received the chance to shop for a few items from Chicwish, this darling floral romper jumped right out at me! The color is right up my alley, as I love earthy neutrals and have greenish eyes, but I completely fell in love with the cut of this little piece! The flutter sleeves and bow sash are just so feminine and flirty, while the pattern champions a simple yet sweet flora design. If green isn't your thing, they offer this romper in a red hue, too!

As I mentioned in a previous post, rompers don't always mix well with my long torso. I was hesitant to choose this one, but couldn't pass up giving it a try and I'm so glad that I did! I ordered a size medium based on the size chart and feel it fits perfectly true to size. I'll admit, when I bend over or do a lot of movements it can find it's way up if you know what I mean--but just walking around, sitting, etc. caused no issues and the fluttery hem of the shorts helped conceal any issues in that area. If you're busty, I would recommend sizing up for some wiggle room in the chest, since I did find that this fabric has very little give throughout the torso (but the arms and legs are mostly free due to the flowy hems)!


Have you ever wished for greater skill in a specific hobby or other arena? I think this spring I just might challenge myself to starting a garden and really buckling down to research and learn more in order to feed my not-so-green thumb! What do you think?
