Sorry for the short break in posts again…  Life has a way of getting in the way, doesn’t it?  We spent less than one full week in Vancouver before we had to fly down to San Diego for Comic Con this past weekend.  The whole weekend is such a blur.  On Sunday, I said goodbye to Matt as he flew back to Vancouver and I rented a car and drove home for the week.  We were away from Soka for 10 days and honestly we have a hard time being away from her even 1 day…  She’s seriously our child.  Where my mommas of fur babies at?  You know what I’m talking about!

My sweet blogger friend, Mckenna Bleu, came up and spent the beginning of this week with me in LA.  I just love having her around.  We did a little shopping, pigged out on some good food and girl talked for hours.  I tried my best to get her to stay longer with me this week, but she had to head home yesterday.  Next time I’ll beg harder.  There’s nothing better than some girl time!

Now I’m home in LA.  Dorothy wasn’t kidding…  No place is better than h.o.m.e.  I love sleeping in my own bed.  Matt comes home this weekend for another crazy jam-packed weekend.  I’m just soaking up every minute I have in LA before I have to head back up north again.  All in all, I’m just plum wore out, as Mawmaw would say.  I need to take a day to myself and do nothing at all, but ain’t nobody got time for that!  I have so many projects I want to work on in our house, so I can’t sit still long enough to even write this post in one sitting.

What is your favorite way to unwind when the world is going about a million miles a minute all around you?  I love to get a facial or massage usually, but I’d love to hear other relaxation tips!

Let’s chat about this look for one quick second…  I still have several posts leftover from my time in Florida, including this one.  I’m such a pom pom and tassel fiend.  If it has pom poms or tassels, I’m in.  I really enjoy the feminine detail that it adds.  I was so excited about this cute top I found and even more excited when it arrived because it was long enough to be worn as a dress.  The rainbow pom poms are so fun for a date night out at the beach, which is exactly what I wore this for.

When I ordered this top, I figured it would arrive and be totally sheer.  I was so wrong.  The quality is surprisingly good for the $23 price tag. I got this top in the same order as my last post’s romper.  I highly recommend this top if you have a beach vacation on the horizon!

Because I’ve been so behind in my posts, I still have so many beach and summer looks to share from our Florida vacation.  I’m (not-so-secretly) happy that I have so many to post.  It’s fun for me to go back and relive our wonderful, relaxing time at the beach.

When it comes to packing for vacation, I like to plan out my outfits ahead of time.  I started shopping online weeks before we left.  I always wear a mix of highs and lows in my normal wardrobe, so naturally that’s what my vacation style also consists of.  Highs and lows are high-mid priced pieces mixed with lower price point pieces.

This romper is beyond darling and only $24.99.  I’ve had a lot of followers comment on past posts where I wear/style pieces that are from this retailer, SheIn, that they’re nervous about buying from them.  They question the quality due to the price point.  I totally get that.  Here’s the thing.  I’ll never wear or post something that I don’t actually like.  I have never been sponsored by SheIn and I’ve always bought everything with my own money from SheIn.  What you see me wear, I love.  Being totally transparent, there have been items I haven’t loved for various reasons, whether that be the fit, quality, color, etc.  Those items are never shown to you because I’m not going to post or wear something unless it makes the cut.  You know?  But to be totally fair, that happens with every single online retailer I shop at.  I send clothes back all.the.time.

This romper actually blew me away for the price point.  I expected it to be sheer (or totally see-through, I should say) but the fabric was layered and the quality was really great.  The one thing I want to warn you about is sizing.  The sizing is totally different than US sizing.  This romper is only available in one size only.  Be sure to look at every single piece that you purchase and know your measurements in inches or centimeters.  That way you can make an educated decision when it comes to the size chart.

I actually purchased multiple pieces from SheIn with this romper and loved every single item I received.  I have a few more blog posts coming your way that will showcase each of them except one that I haven’t had time to shoot yet.  If you still have qualms about shopping here, know that the price point is lower, so don’t expect high-end quality.  Be realistic in your expectations.  Be knowledgable about sizing.  Read the reviews and look at the uploaded photos of buyers wearing the pieces, so you can see how the pieces actually fit a real human body, not just a model.  You can also look at Instagram and Pinterest.  I tend to stalk out pieces online before I pull the trigger so I know exactly what I’m getting.  Hey, money is money.  I like to know where my money is going and what I’m getting for it!

Bottom line: I HIGHLY recommend this romper and I’ve had amazing luck in my purchases.  If you have any other questions about this romper or this retailer, leave them in the comments so I can help before you make your first purchase.  Again, this is not sponsored!  I just wanted to give you a totally unbiased and truthful review about my experience so you know whether you want to shop here as well.

This swim cover-up was purchased in the same order.  It’s only $23.99!  I was also impressed with the level of quality.  Photo of me wearing this cover-up can be seen here.

Oh cobalt blue, you never do me wrong.  It was Mawmaw’s favorite color, my mom’s favorite color and it’s also mine.  I’ve said it about 100 times before in different blog posts, but I love it because it’s so flattering on basically every skin tone.  Cobalt blue makes you look so tan and healthy.

This dress is such a great find.  It’s a great price ($52) and it’s a shift style, so it’s a super forgiving cut.  If you want to hide your midsection, this style is perfect.  The cutout shoulder detail is really fun, but you do need to wear a strapless bra.  Bra straps aren’t a cute look, girl.

These photos were taken in Rosemary Beach, Florida during our vacation.  We snapped these on our way to grab dinner.  We had such an awesome week in 30A.  I plan on putting together a full recap post of our vacation with all details soon.  For now, we’re driving up the West Coast, so be sure to follow along on our journey on my Snapchat: @Angelalanter.


Speechless Cutout Shoulder Dress  //  Steve Madden Stecy Sandal (available in 3 other colors)  //  Henri Bendel Medium Soho Crossbody Bag  //  Baublebar Nice Drop Earrings  //  Kate Spade Crystal Hinge Bracelet  //  Baublebar Mary Links Bracelet  //  Jouer Lip Creme in “Dulce De Leche”

Sizing Info:  Wearing dress in size Small and sandals in US size 7.
