Blue and white striped tie sleeve romper

I got this cute little blue and white striped romper with tie sleeves for my birthday and am just now getting around to getting photos of it to post for you guys. After rear-ending someone in rush hour traffic a few weeks ago, I started having really bad back pain a week later and ended up in the Urgent Care after a couple of long days on set as an extra. Not sure if the super long days contributed to the intense back pain or not, but it was pretty bad after the second long day that week. I am now going to physical therapy to help mend up those achy muscles. Mostly I feel okay, but my back muscles are pretty tight from where the first knot formed in my shoulder down to my lower back where the pain ended up a week later. Bleh.

Needless to say, I was waiting for my back to feel well enough to put on my cute little wedge heels and romper and go take photos. We forgot to get photos of the cute shoes, so I may as well have worn flats – you all wouldn’t even have known, and I wouldn’t have been wobbling about practically twisting my ankle trying to walk on the rocks to the side of the path all for the sake of a photo! (But, that grass, though!)

I got the romper at Marshall’s, but you can find similar striped rompers and other items I wore below. If you click through I may receive a tiny commission barely worth mentioning per clicks and purchases. Thank you in advance for helping keep one light on in my home.

Boho Embroidered Summer Sundress

I was all ready to go to the lavender festival this past weekend in my boho embroidered sundress in off white and blue. I’d heard there was a lavender festival going on this past weekend and decided I wasn’t going to miss it this year. Only to discover that all of the lavender farms participating in this festival were not any of the ones near my home. Wah. But, my son remembered seeing one off the Columbia Historic Highway just past Corbett, Oregon, so off we went in search of lavender fields.

I was wearing this cute boho embroidered sundress – perfect for a hot summer day. Not perfect for our next adventure to Larch Mountain, but absolutely wonderful for walking through fields of lavender taking photos.

I got this dress the end of last summer at Hollister. I believe my mom bought it for me. I still hadn’t worn it yet. The fact that it’s backless makes it hard to wear a bra with it, so after I got one of those weird sticky bra things the end of last fall (you can find that item here,) I was ready to wear all of my backless tops and dresses. Only to find it was now way to cold to do so. This year, I’m ready for them, though. Bring on the summer weather!

This dress is an off white cream color lined to just above the knees with gorgeous blue embroidery details on the bodice. Since it was last years style, you probably won’t find it in the store, but here are some others like it. The hat, shoes and earrings are also old, but the sunglasses are new. Similar styles are found in the link below.
