Reflective Glow

I've been wearing this shorts romper all summer with it's cold shoulder cut outs and the ease of the comfortable jersey-like fabric. Keeping it casual, I love my denim vest and tan fringe booties. Reflective sunnies are perfect in the golden hour sun.

Denim Overalls

Do you ever feel so overwhelmed with work and life that you start to feel like everything is out of control? Whenever I am feeling this way, I always have to be reminded to take it one day at a time. This simple notion is so impactful and helpful when everything in life is chaotic. Since everything can be so chaotic, I've been slowly adopting the ideals of "organized chaos" and "work-life balance". Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in the ideals of life being one-sided when in reality it is a balancing act on a thin tight rope you must walk gracefully. Insert the new Webster term "adulting" here as well. Maintaining an organized chaos while adulting is a trick in itself but it's one that I think can function. Perhaps not as seamlessly as we would like but function slightly smoother. 

When you find a piece of clothing that embodies function, ease and style, it's a feeling of excitement. Apply that to these denim overalls. I have found the pair of denim overalls that meets my denim overall dreams! These have been on rotation, having been paired with sneakers, ankle booties and now my Victorian-style peep toe lace ups. The idea of being stylish with ease appeals to me, especially when I'm busy with work and life. And that's where functionality comes in.

Dressed up, dressed down with no fuss are the denim overalls with a great fit, style and function. Yes.

Aldo A-List Sip & Shop Party

When you are invited to shop and hang out while listening to a DJ spin some dance tunes at one of your favorite stores, the answer is a definite yes. A couple weeks ago, I visited Aldo at Twelve Oaks Mall for their Sip & Shop along with a few Detroit bloggers and fashion followers. Being an Aldo fan, there was no doubt I had to try on some of the styles from their newest collection. One of my favorite styles are the Adeasien, a pair of lace- up over the knee green khaki boots that I have been lusting over since their launch last month. ‘Adeasien’ are street- style perfection and a funky wardrobe staple with it’s versatility in this cool neutral.

As a shoe lover and Aldo fan, it’s hard not to love their selection of affordable fashion forward footwear. During the Sip & Shop a special promo on top of promo was even more incentive to shop. For their selection of sale shoes, a thirty percent off plus an additional fifteen percent off promo was offered. Just another reason to shop Aldo, right? Thanks to Aldo at Twelve Oaks Mall for the shopping fun and hangs!
