What I Wore In New York City

Hi friends! After 10 glorious days in New York with my little family we are back home in Houston. I plan on sharing all of the kid friendly things that we did in New York next week but I wanted to share all of the outfit details asap because I am getting so many messages from you guys since I totally failed at linking everything in real time. 🙁
I am so sorry!

Typically during New York Fashion Week I shoot with Banavenue Photography so I have everything linked for you prior to posting, but this time around it was Fashion Week/family vacation so I was really trying to balance my work load and really not work too much after my meetings. Clearly, I failed and decided I wasn’t going to link anything in time, ha! But making it up to you today and sharing all outfit details below!

Another most asked about topic, “what Chanel bag did I get?!” Sadly, I didn’t end up bringing one home. *insert ugly cry here. This is the bag I want. The medium, calf skin boy bag with silver metals. Neither Bergdorf or Chanel on 5th Ave had it. They had the small, they had the new medium, they had the one with the gold metal detail but not the one I wanted! Waahh! Of course, both sales representatives offered to order it for me but that’s not the same LOL. This will be my first Chanel handbag purchase and I just pictured checking out and angels singing as the salesman handed it to me 🙂 Is that too much to ask for? LOL. So I’ll have to swing by another Chanel store before my husband changes his mind, haha!

I’ll be sure to share with you all once I get my hands on it!

If you have any questions about sizing on any of the outfits I shared, feel free to comment here or email me at info@roselynweaver.com.

Thank you, next.

I felt like I needed to dedicate a post to all my single gals out here! As we head into a month that is all about celebrating love (plus it’s our wedding anniversary) I thought what more perfect time than now to share a little bit of my rocky road to love, haha! I always rave about how amazing my husband is (because he totally is!) but it was not smooth sailing to get here!

Outfit Details: Hoodie: Target | Denim: Nordstrom | Booties: DSW

Some of you caught my Instagram story last month where I shared a little about my previous relationship. I received so many messages that people appreciated me sharing that so I wanted to put it here.on my blog. where it’s probably going to stay permanently so that all my single gals can read it, laugh and just relate to it all together after a bad date or break up.

See, before Brandon, I was engaged. It was young love and it all happened so fast that I had no doubt he was the one. We dated for about a year and a half and stayed engaged for another year. I don’t really share this but he’s the reason I moved to Houston. Well fast forward to 2012. He ended up being an alcoholic. There were more instances than I can count where he would just be gone for days at a time. I had no idea where he was, he would just turn off his phone and I would just go into work with my engagement ring on and people would ask me how wedding planning was going and I would be like “oh it’s going great”. NOT.

I vividly remember one of the many times he told me he was going to stay out of the bars. I don’t have a problem with going to a bar you guys but this was an every day routine. He would get off of work at 7am and a bar is where you would find him. Anyway, I remember one time when he told me he was going to stay out of bars that week. I was heading home from work, pumping gas and I see his truck pull into the bar across the street. So naturally, I call him and I’m like “hey I’m heading home, where are you?”. He replied “at the grocery store”. I immediately hung up and I drove right across the street and walked into where he was. Clearly all of the “regulars” knew who I was and my ex must have shared that he wasn’t supposed to be there because everyone just looked at me in complete shock when I walked in. It was like dead silence.

My ex got up, walked out and drove off. He didn’t drive home though. It was about 3 days until I even heard from him again.

For the last 6 months of our relationship we dealt with similar instances off and on. Everything would be going good and then something would happen that triggered an argument and then he would be #gonegirl. Well, I guess in this case, #goneboy.

It took me about 6 months to finally start thinking clearly. Previous to that I think I spent too much time reflecting on when our relationship was actually good and then for a while I started feeling like I couldn’t leave him in this condition. Who would help him break through his addiction if not me?

I will always remember this one morning waking up after about 5 days of not hearing from him and I didn’t have that feeling of “I hope he’s okay” like I had felt every other time. That was a moment of clarity. I hadn’t heard from my fiance for 5 days and I didn’t even care. That was definitely an eye opener telling me “it’s time to go”. It took me several months to get to that point. Up until then I was just making excuses for him and our relationship.

That day I rented a Uhaul, I packed up all of my stuff, moved in with my sweet friends and the rest is history. Well, sort of. He finally called me about a week later to ask where I was. I imagine that was the first time he had come home and saw my things missing. He had a lot of not-so-nice things to say to me at that point for “just up and leaving”. Trust me, I know I am not perfect but I knew that I deserved more.

Thank you, next.

Fast forward to 2013. Brandon and I’s friendship turned into so much more and now here we are, 2019, happily married and with the sweetest son. I’m not sure why we go through certain things in life but I am certain and can share from experience that it makes you appreciate things so much more and makes that happily ever after that much sweeter.

For my single girlfriends who have had your share of bad relationships, that prince charming is coming. That bad experience is a part of your story that you can laugh about later…I promise you’ll laugh later.

Enjoy that time you have as a single gal. Remember your worth. You know what you are capable of giving and you know what you deserve. If that person isn’t giving you exactly that?….thank you, next.

Faux Fur Camo Coat

It’s goin’ down faux real 🙂 Today I am sharing this really cozy, faux fur camo coat plus what our weekend plans are!

trendy-camo-coat
roselyn-weaver-faux-fur-coat

Outfit Details: Coat: Forever 21 | Tee: Nordstrom | Denim: Nordstrom |
Handbag: DSW | Sunglasses: Quay | Heels: DSW

This coat is so incredibly soft and I love the feminine twist on the camo. I am wearing my normal size medium and it fits perfectly. I styled it with heels and denim here but I think it would be so cute with leggings and your favorite sneakers too! Also, you know what is so awesome about the raw hem trend? The fact that you don’t have to pay to get them hemmed. You can simply cut the length of your jeans yourself and voila! perfect fit.

We are currently in some of our coldest days in Houston and if I’m being honest I don’t like it, lol. I mean I like visiting cold places but when we have to run errands in the cold, windy weather? No thank you! I thought we weren’t supposed to have to deal with that in Houston!

Are you guys having a great month so far? I sure hope so! January has been so jam packed for us that I didn’t even realize I was going to be out of town for every weekend in January except for one. The first weekend was spent with some of my favorite mama friends in Charleston, the second was with my dear family celebrating my Mom (I already miss them all so much!) and this weekend I am heading to New Orleans to spend some time with the Texas DSW Style Squad. Eeek, I cannot wait to spend some quality time with them, work a little and celebrate a lot! The DSW opportunity has been one of the highlights of my blogging career and honestly meeting each one of these girls is up there too so I am excited to see everyone!

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week and are feeling so inspired to do that thing you always wanted to do. Remember you are only 23 days into the year so if you have already slacked a little on that goal you set out for yourself, it’s okay girl. Give yourself some grace. Today is a new day and we can start strong all over again. The important thing is to not give up.

Girls Weekend in Charleston, South Carolina

I can’t believe it has already been 2 weeks since our girls trip to Charleston. We had such a great time and came back with so many memories! If you are looking for a place to visit with your gal pals I would highly recommend Charleston. Today I am sharing where we stayed, where we ate and what we did! Oh and all of the outfit details, of course!

girls-weekend-charleston

Shop these looks:

It was my first time in Charleston and I always heard about how charming it was and now I totally get it! It was one of the most charming cities I have ever been to and I would go back in a heartbeat. Also, my middle brother was born there so before I left for the trip my parents were telling me all of the things they remembered from there so as we biked through the town I just imagined them walking through the city with my brothers as kids and that made this trip that much sweeter.

Where We Stayed:

Zero George hooked us up with the private Garden Suite which was just about as charming as the whole city of Charleston. We had our own little house that was complete with a living room and I can’t forget about the complimentary wine, cheese and 24 hour espresso service! I cannot recommend Zero George enough. The staff was so kind and accommodating. The property was as cute as can be and so close to everything that we were able to bike from the hotel to all of the spots we wanted to see. Oh and the pre-dinner cocktails we had at Zero Restaurant + Bar were pretty great too. 🙂

What We Ate:

Aside from eating all the cheese boards and drinking all the coffee from Zero George, we stopped at a few delicious hot spots during our girls weekend in Charleston.

Breakfast at Millers All Day – I had the frittata which was yummy and the restaurant reminded me of a place you would see in Palm Springs. So cute!

Brunch at One Broad Street

Dinner at Husk – I had the NC Chicken dinner which was okay. Honestly, I think this restaurant is a bit overrated as it is always on everyone’s top places to eat in Charleston and apparently it’s super tough to get a reservation there. For that reason, it’s worth saying you’ve been there but if you can’t get a reservation during your visit to Charleston, don’t feel too bad.

Dinner at The Darling Oyster Bar– OMG, I wish I had a picture of the crispy fried chicken that Margret and I shared. It was SO good and one plate is definitely plenty enough for two people! The atmosphere was super cute and the cocktails were legit.

Sweet Treat at Jeni’s – We stopped by during our bike ride back to the hotel to satisfy our sweet tooth cravings. I had the salted caramel ice cream and it was delicious!

What We Did:

I loved that we walked and biked through Charleston all weekend. The only time we took an uber was to dinner each night because it was pretty chilly at night. Zero George provides first come, first serve, complimentary bikes which was another plus from our hotel stay. I would recommend biking or walking through the city because there are so many charming houses each way you look and that is the only way you can take it all in. FYI- you can get fined $500 for biking on the sidewalk. I wish someone would have told us the first day, haha.

King Street – surprisingly we all had intentions of shopping but I think only Jessica bought something. We sure did window shop in Gucci though but we all came out empty handed. King Street has a ton of chain stores as well local boutiques.

Charleston City Market – The city market is a must when visiting Charleston. Such a great place to grab souvenirs as all of the items found at the Historic Charleston City Market are certified authentic Made in Charleston items.

Republic – Our sweet new friend Hillary recommended that we go to Republic for some night life fun. If I’m being totally honest, Rebekah and I were just trying to run into the Southern Charm cast, haha. We actually got there right after dinner which was probably pretty early #momlife but Republic ended up giving us bottle service which started that visit off pretty great and we got to dance the night away.

The Battery – The gorgeous and huge houses along the peninsula are definitely a must see. Apparently these homes were built by some of the wealthiest families in the city and I’m not surprised.

Waterfront Park and Pineapple Fountain- I am so glad Margret brought us by here on our last day. It was just a quick stop on our bike ride back to the hotel but the fountain is always something I see on Southern Charm so that’s pretty important to me, haha! This area has a great view of the harbor and would be such a great spot to let your little one run around if traveling to Charleston with your family.

Rainbow Row- The iconic Charleston site is a series of houses near the water front painted bright pastel colors. Again, another charming stop and must see in the city in my opinion.

Grab an athletic sweatshirt or even a denim jacket to tie around your waist, throw on your favorite sneakers and voila! You’ll never have to substitute comfort for style again!

First off, how beautiful are these girls? SO beautiful right?! I love everyone’s individual style and they are just the nicest girls IRL (in real life). 🙂 My Mom wants me to start sharing acronyms 🙂

Secondly, I am laughing a little inside because there is 100% chance I won’t be dressed up like this for NYE this year! Maybe I’ll pick up a sequin sweatsuit just for fun, lol. Sequins are basically mandatory for New Years Eve. Whether it’s a sequin bodycon dress or a hoodie, ha! We are keeping it pretty low key this year with our little guy. Our plans are to hang out with our family friends but for all of you beauties that are going out, all 5 of these looks are great options! Let me know what you are up to for NYE so I can live vicariously through you! 🙂

Okay now…let’s talk about this tartan plaid cape coat that is giving me all the heart eyes.

The quality is so good you guys. It had actually been a while since I last shopped at Talbots and I was so impressed with all of the stylish options! There are great styles for work and the weekend. Seriously, it was hard for me to narrow down what I wanted! I am wearing a size 4 in the pink stadium coat and a small in the cape!
