Could you imagine living in an era where pairing delicate lace and cutoff denim shorts or denim in general was unheard of?! Thank goodness we are in the 21st century where anything goes!
If you feel pretty in it, wear it!!
What inspired this outfit you ask? Well…this bipolar Houston weather to be honest! LOL 🙂
This Houston weather can’t really decide what it wants to do so denim shorts and long sleeve tops it is!
I love mixing really feminine pieces with denim for an edgier look. Here it’s the delicate lace top with cutoff shorts and another favorite combo of mine is a feminine floral top with heavily distressed denim. I chose to accessorize with black sandals and a clutch to top off the cool gal vibe.
“Thank you God for blessing me with much more than I deserve.”
Starting this post with the quote above seemed the most appropriate. I strive to be a better human being/Christian every single day, but some days things happen that make me look up and say “Whoa! Thank you! What did I do to deserve this?!” You can safely assume that was the first thing that came to mind a couple weeks ago when I was communicating with a PR rep about a potential collaboration only to find out days later it was Nordstrom! When Nordstrom calls on you, you say YES!
So my sweet friends, I am happy to share with you today that I will be collaborating with Nordstrom in the upcoming months to share with you some of my favorite spring & summer trends. Let’s start it off strong with this MUST HAVE culotte jumpsuit!
I feel very strongly about rompers and jumpsuits! Yes, so strongly that even though they may be the most inconvenient and most awkward piece of clothing when trying to use a public restroom I still buy one every time I go shopping. I’m basically saying “yes one piece you are so adorable that I am okay with having to get all the way undressed each time I have to use the restroom”. LOL, but really.
Culottes on the other hand, I wasn’t too sure about at first. I mean I absolutely love the style, but I didn’t know how the silhouette would look on me. You know what? After trying them on this past weekend at Nordy’s, I LOVE them!
I am especially loving this particular style because you can easily wear this to a spring wedding and you best believe I will be pairing it with a blazer for the office! A culotte jumpsuit that’s versatile? Count me in!
The pretty blush, cream and gray geo print make this black jumpsuit perfect for the spring season! Because there is not much leg/ankle showing due to my short self I opted for a simple, single strap heel. I paired it with a nude Steve Madden heel here, but I am now on the hunt for a perfect blush pair to wear with this jumpsuit! Keep your eye out for me please!
Have you all tried culottes yet? Do you love it? Hate it? I would love to hear! If you haven’t tried them on I suggest you do!
Please stay tuned for more Nordstrom collaborations in the upcoming weeks! Also, if you aren’t following me on Snapchat come find me (roselyn_m)! This way you’ll get all of the behind the scenes shopping action on my next Nordstrom trip! Plus it’s a fun way to get to see a silly, unedited version of myself so come find me and I’ll add you back!
Thank you so much for your continued support and for stopping by!
Have a blessed week!

I highly recommend the t-shirt dress for so many reasons. Not only are they so versatile to be able to dress up and down, but this “flattering on all body types” dress doesn’t care if you are having a bloated day 🙂 It’s like the comfort equivalence of yoga pants but with a more “I took some time to put myself together today” look! I’ll take one in all colors available please!
I took a more sporty spice approach for my t shirt dress look this day. A beaded necklace and customized superstars is how I chose to style my dress for a day of running errands
Do you guys remember that song? OMG, it brings back so many memories of my break dancing days. Okay, maybe I didn’t breakdance, but my brothers did and they always practiced in our garage so basically it’s like I was a break dancer too 🙂 Also, I think it is worth mentioning that my brothers and their friends were nice enough to let us start a girl group. Yup, we made up dance routines, performed at every school talent show, had matching jackets and everything! LOL I need to find a video or pictures for a good throwback Thursday post!
Anyway, this post isn’t just about how great my friends and I were at dance routines! It is actually about the adorable 2 piece trend that you need in your wardrobe so I am linking up so many great styles below.
I love this trend for an effortlessly pretty look! I mean two matching pieces that were designed to go together? Getting dressed doesn’t get easier than this! I purchased the set above last year so unfortunately it is sold out, but I am linking so many great styles below! You’re welcome! 🙂
Oh you know, typical Sunday night over here. Laundry has been put away, meals for the week are done, Brandon is catching up on The Walking Dead, I’m relaxing in my baggy pajama pants talking about how to tastefully show a little skin in your day time OOTD 🙂
Dressing up for a hot date night out with your hubby is a little easier than trying to bring the sexy to your day time look. For a date or a GNO you can throw on your little black mini or that new body con dress you just bought, but that may not be the look you are going for before sunset. 🙂 A great example for some day time sass is the side slit detail on this floral dress I posted Friday. Feminine with a touch of sexy. Another great example of looking oh so sexy and still classy is the hot hot HOT off the shoulder trend! That is a great way to get a little risqué with your day look and still look extremely classy! Another easy option to step up your sexy is the lace up trend!
Do you guys love this lace up trend as much as I do?! Which looks do you like to wear to add a little sexy to your day time look? I would love to hear!
Thanks for stopping by beauties! Wishing you an amazing week!
P.S. A special birthday shout out to one of my most amazing, best friends Rachel! Love this lady so much! Of course she was born on the first day of Spring because that is how much happy she brings into my life!
The Mint Julep Boutique launched in 2012, quickly broke into the retail world and grew their social media following to where it is today. Talk about ultimate boss babes! After browsing their site and chatting with “The Mint Girls” I am not surprised of their ever growing success. Not only is the wide selection of product oh so cute, but the customer service is top notch and you can totally tell the team takes pride in what they do!
I chose this “perfect for any event” mint dress. The delicate crochet and lightweight fabric on the Vision in Vintage dress make it perfect for any of your upcoming spring or summer events.
Isn’t this dress so fun and pretty? I’m sure you can think of all the places you could wear it! You can pair it with sandals for brunch or a picnic in the park! Then dress it up with heels for a bridal shower! I mention those three events because that is what I have scheduled for this upcoming weekend! Any events you will be dressing up for this weekend? Yes, it is Monday and I am already talking about the weekend LOL.
On a side note- I am sitting here with a crazy fever, sore throat and sweating (a little less pretty of a picture then what you see above 🙁 ) Praying I will get better fast!!
I hope you all had a great first Monday after daylight savings! Who knew one hour could throw off your whole life? Haha!
Thanks for stopping by loves!

Step One: Get a kick butt workout in that morning so I don’t feel so bad about all of the fried oreos, fried cheesecake and brisket stuffed baked potatoes I am going to consume. Yes, these are all real things!
Step Two: Find out who we are going to see in concert and listen to their music all day! LOL. I listen to country music every once in a while, mostly when my husband is driving so though I’m familiar with some of the music I am not an expert so once my husband decides who we are going to see at the rodeo I prepare by listening to that artist all day. If you were sitting next to me you’d think I was their biggest fan! Haha!
**please excuse the picture quality 🙂 We quickly snapped these before we left the house!

I have been in Houston for about 8 years now and I have not gotten tired of the rodeo! Yes, if my husband is reading this, I do complain about the traffic getting to and from NRG (formally known as Reliant) stadium, but seriously that is my only complaint! Also, the trick to avoiding that traffic as much as possible is to park a little further from the stadium and walk or hop on one of those pedi cabs. Some years we get a parking pass which is great being able to walk right up to the stadium, but getting out is always chaos so I much rather park a little ways further and walking or you can always Uber. I mean it is 2016. 🙂
So if you haven’t experienced the Houston Rodeo you TOTALLY have to!! And that is coming from this California girl! I mean it is the largest live entertainment and livestock exhibition. Competitors from all over the world are there. If you don’t think watching bull riding is your jam (though I think you need to experience it at least once) just show up right before your concert and catch my favorite contest of the evening, Mutton Busting. Omg, those kids are the cutest things ever! After the concert be sure to stop by the Hideout for some drinks and dancing then on your way to your car grab those fried oreos. I mean that’s what I call a successful rodeo night! The carnival part is also fun because it makes you feel like a kid again!
Also, side note about the concerts- the performers aren’t all country artists. To name a few; Bruno Mars, the Biebs, Robin Thicke and Maroon 5 have all been performers at the Houston Rodeo. Texans don’t discriminate!
We saw Darius Rucker (Hootie) this year and I must admit when he surprisingly busted out Blackstreet’s No Diggity I was “aaahhhh yea! skating rink days!” Haha, love that song!
So if you are new to Houston or going to be in the area during rodeo be sure you check it out!
