Gingham bow tie top + ballerina leggings

I got this gingham top and ballerina tie leggings courtesy of Yoins. Both items are so super cute! The gingham plus the cold shoulder tie sleeves makes the top really trendy. And, what’s not to love on the ballerina tie leggings? Amirite? I got so many compliments the day I wore those to physical therapy. (Yeah, still going due to the whip lash from the car accident last month. Wah. Wah. Wah…) Although one lady did say it looked like the muscle tape they have. So if you really want to create them yourself on a budget, you now know how. Just get muscle tape and criss cross it around your legs. Haha. Just kidding. Really. Don’t do that.

If you like the exact same ones I got, just hover your mouse (or finger, if you’re on your phone) over the words ‘top’ and ‘leggings’ in the above paragraph. Similar items are posted in the links at the bottom of the post as well.

Happy fall y’all!

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!)
