Summer Lovin’

This is a look I put together last week while exploring South First in the lovely town of Austin. If you live or are visiting Austin, Texas you have to make a day trip to South First. There is the iconic Capital of Texas sign (pictured below) on the corner of South First and Annie on the back of Roadhouse Relics. Go during the day because mainly you’ll get to indulge in some  Gordoughs, get in a nice happy hour at Freddies and see all of the extremely random toy soldiers, stuffed animals, pictures, etc. on the side of every single telephone pole. Lots to take in!

Have a fabulous day!

{May} You LIve Happily Ever After // Wedding Wear

Hey beauties! HAPPY MAY!

As many of us are well aware of (thank you Facebook) it is wedding season! I really do enjoy this time of year; bring on the cake! As happy as this time is; it’s also frustrating as a guest finding something to wear. There seems to be so many “rules”… don’t offend the elders, no white, not too formal, not too sparkly, don’t outshine the bride, and I’m sure there are more, so RWR is here to make it a bit easier for you.

These three dresses are an ideal match for a spring/summer wedding. Bright colors and patterns are in, along with the 1940s inspired midi dress length; which is nice for a more modest church wedding. A nude chunky heel is an ideal shoe because pumps are only going to sink in the grass at outside venues and this thick heel makes it easier to walk and dance in. A DVF wrap dress (or wrap dress in general) was an obvious choice due to the timeless appeal and how flattering it looks on all body types and sizes (go up a size in DVF dresses).

Now that your outfit is on point, REMEMBER, and this will sound cliche, BUT don’t forget to have fun. Participate in the activities, smile, give that cousin you haven’t seen in years a big hug, dance with your friends from way back when and CELEBRATE!

Over-ALL, I’m Loving This Trend

Though some might be rolling their eyes at such an absurd trend… I’m PUMPED! Yes, overalls have come back around. Which means I’m obviously getting older because I can easily reminisce on the time I was lounging in my Winnie The Pooh light yellow short overalls. But seriously people, don’t hate; they are comfy, cute and nowadays the varieties are endless.

A couple weeks ago I made the decision to splurge on some sophisticated Trina Turk overalls; I dressed them up for work during the day and paired them with a crop top for my evening SXSW extravaganzas. The compliments I got were quite the confidence booster, so don’t hesitate to OWN IT when wearing overalls. Click here for a great read on different ways to spice-up overalls.

Enjoy & Be Merry!
