Wow, anyone who told me that buying a
house fixer-upper and planning a wedding at the same time was a bad idea; you were right. Things have been very exciting lately but also stressful. We started demolition on our kitchen this past weekend and are planning to put in new floors this weekend. Given the fact that I work from home, my weekends are spent working on the new house and all my extra money is going towards things for the house instead of clothing, I’ve had a lack of outfit posts.
I feel like my Summer wardrobe is lacking. I definitely prefer Fall to Summer and boots and sweaters to sandals and shorts. My wardrobe is definitely a reflection of that. I’ve found myself wearing the same things over and over again this Summer, usually easy, flowy dresses (or shorts and a t shirt for working around the house). Lately, I’ve found myself feeling like I have nothing to wear when I get dressed for the day. For this outfit, I decided to keep it simple and take it back to the basics with this simple black and white look.

I had my first experience with Rent the Runway this past weekend. We had a wedding to attend in New York and I decided to save money and rent. I had been eyeing this dress for a while and despite the description that this dress was for smaller chested girls, I decided to rent it. I ordered it in my regular size and one size up. My usual size fit me everywhere except the bust (shocker!) With a little effort, I could zip it up but felt a little uncomfortable and decided to wear the next size up. It was much more comfortable in my bust but was large in the waist which caused it to gape a little. Oh, the woes of having an hour glass shape.
I love the ease of renting and the customer service at Rent the Runway. I will definitely be renting from them more often but will probably listen to their sizing suggestions a little more next time.
