Pleated Skater Dress + 2 Things I Learned This Week That Blew My Mind

Happy Monday beauties!

I listen to 104.1 KRBE almost everyday on my way to work and they do this thing called dumb question amnesty. Basically it’s a segment where anyone call in with a “dumb” question and it’s a judgment free zone. The radio hosts answer their questions or listeners call in to help answer the question.

Anywho, I always laugh at this segment because they are truly legit questions, even if they sound silly to some. My point here today is, if you already knew the 2 things that totally blew my mind this week, then don’t judge. 🙂 One of them is probably something we learned in 6th grade science but I wasn’t paying attention that day!

Okay so…you know that Meme that is like “I went to YouTube for one thing and than 5 hours later I know how to talk to giraffes?”

youtube-meme

Yeah, that one. Anyway, during one of my sleepless night escapades, and instead of doing anything productive I was reading articles upon articles that really added no value to my life except to share with you what I learned LOL.

Did you know it rains diamonds on Saturn?

kc-stauffer-meme

Yes, for real. I mean technically (according to the internet) “As the clouds of soot fall towards the planet, they clump together forming graphite, and as the pressure builds up closer to the planet’s core, that graphite is compressed into pure diamond, thus literally raining diamonds on Saturn.”

Why is this so fascinating to me?! Literally I read articles for like an hour because I didn’t want this mind blowing news to be #fakenews.

So tell me…did we learn this in 6th grade science?

Okay, the other thing that I “learned” this week was, actually this is a 2 part deal. Australia has over ONE THOUSAND beaches meaning you could go to a new beach every single day for 27 years! Also, on one of the islands off of the West Coast of Australia is Lake Hillier. A BRIGHT BUBBLE PINK LAKE!

Lake-Hillier-Pink-Lake

According to WorldAtlas.com, the pink waters of Lake Hillier are caused by the presence of the Dunaliella salina microalgae. I don’t know how accurate that is and those words didn’t sound amusing enough for me to want to Google so you can tell me if that is correct. 🙂 They already had me at pink.lake.

If you are wondering why I even fell into that hole, it’s because Brandon and I actually wanted to stop in Australia last year before our trip to New Zealand but with the amount of time we had, it didn’t make since to stop after all so Australia has definitely made it’s way to the top of our bucket list! And since we won’t be taking an international trip this year like we normally do, we plan on doing one when all is finalized with Baby Weaver’s paperwork so long story short, I’m up at 3am planning that trip, LOL.

Please don’t tell me I’m not the only one who gets sucked into this randomness and enjoys it oh so much! 🙂

Tell what was something that totally blew your mind this week?!

Dressed Up With Tanger Outlets

Happy Monday beauties!

If you caught my Instagram stories you saw that I found some great looks at Tanger Outlet in Texas City, Texas this weekend! I found baby Weaver some really cute items plus mama snagged some stuff for herself too 🙂 Today I am sharing 2 outfits that would be equally perfect for work or date night!

Oh and also sharing where to get your additional 25% off coupons below!

How cute are both of these outfits? So cute right?!

Did you know that Tanger Outlets offered coupons for additional savings?! I had no idea! I thought because it was an outlet and the prices are already marked down that they didn’t do coupons. I was so excited to find out they did! You can snag yours here!

I linked my outfits to the Ann Taylor Factory and the Loft Outlet websites in case you wanted to shop them online but remember you won’t be able to use you Tanger coupons there so if you wanted to take advantage of allll the savings be sure to visit your nearest outlet!

Tanger Outlets was also so generous to give me a code for you to text in to get a $25 gift card! This giveaway begins on Thursday, August 9th. So be sure to come back to the blog on Thursday morning to get the code so that you can use yours to shop this tax free weekend, August 10th-12th.

A gift card, coupons and tax free! Who could pass up that deal? Not me!

Wear To Work: Printed Ankle Pants

Happy Monday friends!

If you remember, I mentioned in this post that I bought these pants in 3 colors because I love the fit so much! I wanted to be sure to share the other 2 colors with you today because this is the last full week on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and when it ends these pants will go back to their full price of $89!

Outfit One: Plaid Ankle Pants

Outfit Details: Cami: Express | Pants: Nordstrom | Heels: Vince Camuto | Purse: Louise & Eleanor | Sunglasses: Target

I am always on the hunt for easy and affordable work wear! If you were looking for cute and affordable work wear, these pants should be on your list! They are true to size and I am wearing a size 4. For some weird reason, the printed pants fit a little more snug than the plain black ones but not too snug. Like if I got the next size, they would be way too big. I just want to point that out in case you get them and are wondering if it’s just you. It’s not, it’s the pants 🙂

As you can see, I styled both of these looks super simple with a basic tee and the other with a basic tank. I would actually throw a blazer over the white cami for the office but to be totally honest, this was the 5th outfit change during my photoshoot with Yash and I was just trying to not sweat my booty off, haha! This is one of my favorite white blazers in case you are looking for one!

Did you all have a great weekend?! I sure hope so! Why do the weekends fly by so quickly?! There is just not enough snuggle time with my little guy! When we were visiting a vendor in Austin last week so many of the employees had their dogs in the office with little baby gates. I asked my boss if I could bring baby Weaver in everyday if I just put a babe gate up 🙂 Unfortunately, he said no but I’ll keep trying, haha!

I hope you guys have an amazing week! I have some really exciting things to share with you all this week! The first piece of good news is coming Friday and the second piece of amazing news that I have been hinting at will be shared Sunday!

OMG I’m so excited to share with you guys and of course I am trying to think of some fun ways to give back to you guys because I couldn’t have done it without you!!!

Stay tuned! Love you guys so much!

How To Dress Up A T-Shirt For The Office

Happy Thursday friends!

Today I am styling this super comfortable t-shirt for the office. This tee is actually part of the Nordstrom sale and I bought 3 colors because they are so good and only $11!

Outfit Details: Tee: Nordstrom and similar here | Pants: Nordstrom | Heels: Amazon | Bag: so old! so linking a similar one here | Sunglasses: Karen Walker

So I wish I was dressed up and had makeup on today but instead I am still in my pj’s working from home because I am so not feeling well! Rachel, if you are reading this I blame Justin. 🙂

Tomorrow the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens up to the public (non cardholders) so all my office gal friends make sure you snag this comfy tee and flattering ankle pants! Like I mentioned, I snagged this tee in 3 colors and actually these pants in 3 colors as well. In addition to the black ones I grabbed the navy pinstripe style and the plaid ones! Both the tee and pants run true to size. I am wearing a small in the tee and size 4 in the pants for reference.

If you guys are anything like me, sometimes you just wanna throw on a tee and be done with your outfit but since #nopantsmonday isn’t a thing at the office here are 3 tips to styling your favorite t-shirts to the office.

1- Make sure your choice of bottoms are tailored– I opted for the easy route which were these tailored ankle pants but tucking your t-shirt into your favorite pencil skirt would achieve an equally chic and effortless look.

2- Tuck Your Shirt In – Duh. We can get away with not tucking our blouses in but the secret to making your casual weekend tee look not so casual at the office is making sure it’s neatly tucked in.

3- Throw On A Blazer – basically my solution for everything 🙂 But seriously a blazer will dress up any look!  A few weeks ago I couldn’t find a clean white cami to wear so I grabbed a white gym tank I had and threw a blazer over it. Voila!

So… I’m not sure if you noticed but the blog is undergoing some changes/rebranding. 🙂 I couldn’t be more excited about it as I’ve thinking about moving to RoselynWeaver.com for some time now! Stay tuned for some fun things coming our way. Yes, that means YOU too! I’ll be sharing some exclusive content and gifts here for you guys! I love and appreciate you all so much and I don’t think I tell you that enough!

Wear To Work: Grid Blazer

Baby Weaver and I were bummed about getting ready for daycare and the office today. We’d much rather be getting ready for another beach day 🙂 At least cute work wear helps so today I’m sharing an easy and affordable office look!

We had such a great time vacationing with our friends this weekend! If you saw on Instagram stories we spent 4 days in Port Aransas and quite frankly it was the most relaxing vacation we’ve had in a long time. Definitely much needed! I even took naps and it was glorious haha! And spending time with my best gal pal Rachel is always so fun. Baby Weaver absolutely LOVED the beach and just having sand all over him. He was in heaven. Now we can cross 2 more things off of our summer bucket list!

The beach house was so cute! It was located at Sunflower Beach. Walking distance from the pool and beach but we opted to use a golf cart because we were lugging around so much equipment. And by equipment I mean toys, snacks and adult beverages 🙂 A lot of you were asking where we stayed and my thoughts about the house/location. My best friend and her husband found the house and I would highly recommend it. You can find it here.

I hope you all had an amazing weekend and here’s to a quick and productive Monday!

Floral Print Pant Suit + $600 Nordstrom Giveaway

Happy Monday! I know it’s Monday but it’s a bit of a short week so you gotta be happy about that! Plus some blogger gals and I are partnering up to give one lucky winner a $600 Nordstrom gift card!

Giveaway entry and details are at the end of the post!

Outfit Details: Blazer: Zara (sold out but exact dupe can be found here) | Pants: Zara | Cami: Express (the one I wear all the time) | Heels: DSW | Sunglasses: Quay Australia | Handbag: Nordstrom (similar)

Ummmm, can you talk about this fabulous suit?! I know it’s super extra but OMG I can’t get enough of it. It’s so cute paired together but I also wore the pants with  basic white cami and if you recall I paired the blazer with some denim shorts in my “How To Wear A Blazer In The Summer” post here.

I am so sorry that it took me so long to share the set here because the pants are now only available in one size and the blazer is completely sold out at Zara but still 3 pieces of good news for you! 1) I found the exact blazer here for the fraction of the price. 2) Zara is having a major sale on summer stuff 3) I also found a bunch of other affordable matching top and pant sets that will totally make you feel like a #girlboss.

P.S. If you are going to wear the yellow set to the office, it would be super cute with a button down white blouse underneath. Just FYI. Don’t be strutting into the office with that crop top saying Roselyn sent you, haha!

Wishing you all an amazing week!

Gingham Tie Waist Dress

Happy Monday beauties!

How was everyone’s weekend?! Amazing, I hope! We had a busy (but fun) weekend filled with church, a wedding and celebrating Brandon’s first Father’s Day! Insert all the heart emoji’s.

Today I am sharing this super adorable navy and white gingham dress that I have been wearing on repeat lately! I’ve already worn it 3 times this month. Twice to work and once to church so it’s perfect for the office and the weekend!

Can you believe this dress is from Dressbarn?! I was so shocked to see all the cuteness they have. I was so surprised to see their assortment when Dressbarn reached out to me. They have such cute stuff for summer. I got this embroidered dress from there and this super cute ruffle skirt as well. I have a size 4 in the dresses and a medium in the skirt for reference. They are currently having a buy more save more sale right now but I have to stay clear for the next 12 days 🙂

Also, I did want to point out that I have been blown away by your sweet messages about my No Shop June challenge. I had no idea I would inspire so many of you to take the challenge as well. I’m not going to lie, it’s been pretty tough but it’s also been so fun forcing myself to style my existing wardrobe so many different ways and also giving all the cute items more wear like they deserve 🙂 Like this dress for example.

As I mentioned before, when I share outfits with you guys, it’s not to make you feel like you need to purchase allll the things but to inspire you on how to style your current items. I’m here to help you find your personal style so that when you get up and get dressed you feel good and in return makes you do good. 🙂 That all can happen without breaking the budget. I have to constantly remind myself that 🙂 This No Shop June has been a challenge for sure but it’s definitely a rewarding one. I love all of your sweet messages and please keep sharing those pictures!

Have an amazing week!

Lavender Midi Dress + Houston Restaurants You Should Try

Happy mid week loves!

Sharing a great summer dress that would be equally perfect for the office or a brunch date with your besties! Speaking of brunch I am also talking about 4 restaurants we have tried this week along with my honest review

Are you all having a great week? I sure hope so! My team and I have been spending a lot of time with our vendors who were in town this week for our charity golf tournament which also means we have been trying out new restaurants left and right. If you follow me on Instastories it probably looks like I have just been eating all day long, haha! Yesterday we tried out Postino in the Heights for lunch and it was really delicious! The Panini’s were so big I had to take half of it to go which never happens! #foodieatheart. I would recommend this place and I will definitely be back! They have great wine specials and shared plate options that I think are perfect for happy hour.

Baby Weaver got to join us for his first team meeting last night for dinner, lol. We went to Laurenzo’s Restaurant which I have been to a couple of times for work. Have you guys been there? It’s an El Tiempo chain so their Mexican food is really good but they also have Italian, seafood and steak on the menu. It’s great for a big group because it has a lot of options but I’ll be honest it’s not my favorite place. I’ve had salad’s there as well as their Italian food and last night I tried the ahi tuna steak. Not impressed. If you see me there again, it’s most likely because a coworker chose it. If I want the yummy Mexican food, I’ll just go straight to El Tiempo which is one of my favs. Baby Weaver was loving that he got to try everyone’s dessert though 🙂

Monday after the golf tournament we grabbed a quick bite at Paulie’s Restaurant. It’s a super cute, family owned Italian restaurant. There is also a separate area where you can run in and grab a coffee and something from the bakery. I had the grilled Portobello and goat cheese sandwich. I would definitely get that again!

My favorite new spot of the week was, hands down, Mastro’s Restaurant in Uptown that we tried on Sunday night. Holy smokes, everything was delicious. I had the 8oz petite filet and the group shared gorgonzola mac & cheese, twice baked potatoes, creamed spinach, gruyere cheese scalloped potatoes, french fries, roasted brussel sprouts, grilled broccolini, butter cake and cheesecake. Haha, I know that’s a lot to list but I had to tell you everything we ate because nothing disappointed! Not only was the food 5 stars but the service was impeccable. When the sides came out, I’m not exaggerating when I say there were about 7 people serving us the sides individually. The atmosphere and dĂ©cor was super chic too. They had a live band that was really great. 5 out of 5 stars for Mastro’s for sure! I love trying new restaurants so be sure to send me your favorites!

Also, after writing this I realize I need to get to the gym today, haha!
