Happy Tuesday friends! I have had a mad crush on rompers lately that I wanted to share a couple of my favs. I love busting out a romper this time of year and trust me when I say rompers are here to stay. They are the perfect substitute for a dress yet give you freedom to move around and give comfort. This romper is one of my favs and my jaw dropped when I saw it online. Of course my jaw dropped again when seeing the price tag but cmon I can see why! This romper is also a steep but I have seen it in person and it absolutely adorable. The rest of the rompers are under $100 and my favs. I LOVE this chambray material as a romper which is on sale. This striped cutout romper would be perfect for a night out and is also on sale. Also linking more budget friendly rompers that I have my eye on down below on the widget.

Hope you enjoy your day and for you Houston peeps, stay dry! I finally got my hubs back after him being in Vegas. Oh how happy I am to have him home. He is so much fun to be around that why wouldn’t I want him home?! I also missed his manly self when all the tornado sirens were going off on Sunday evening. It was so sad not to have him here. Thankfully we are reunited and hopefully no more Vegas trips….LOL.

Dress: eShakti | Shoes: Steve Madden | Earrings: Similar | Lipstick: Nars

Todays dress is a little different and I am so so so excited to be sharing this dress with you! It seems like any other LBD but in reality, I got to custom make this bad boy. eShakti is an online custom company which has a GENIUS concept. Have you ever seen a dress and wondered ah man I wish that was a little longer? I wish that had sleeves? I wish that was a little shorter? I wish that came in another color?! The wish list can go on and on so that is where eShakti comes into play. They are an online shop that lets you customize your dress to your own liking. I have been on a hunt for the perfect LBD for years now. I wanted something chic (I went with the turtleneck), quarter sleeves (so I can stop being so cold at events), and a “mini” length so it can fit in with the term LITTLE black dress. My biggest concern was finding sleeves but yet getting to wear this dress all year long. I adore the turtleneck that gives it such a edgy look without leaving it as a boring LBD dress. I even got to add pockets because what girl doesn’t love pockets?! I had SO MUCH FUN designing this dress that I can not wait for my next order! Luckily they also do free returns if you are not satisfied with your design. eShakti has also been so gracious enough for Dress Up Buttercup readers to receive a %10 off coupon until 5/15/2016 (code: dressupbuttercup).

I can’t wait to see what you come up with! Would love for you to tag me in your pieces when they come in from eShakti. I wore this look last week to a dear friends wedding and the pop of color with the yellow earrings and pink bold lips were perfection. I did just see this similar LBD with the tie neck that is uber cute!

Happy Monday love bugs! I had the greatest weekend ever but nothing like missing my hubs. He is in Vegas with some guys and I can’t wait for him to hurry home tomorrow! Until then I will be grinding on my work and at the gym. Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.

Top: OhBlythe | Jeans: Articles of Society | Shoes: Steve Madden | Glasses: Quay 

I have had a mad crush on vertical stripes lately and this striped susan top hits it out of the park. It is by far one of the comfiest tops I own. I feel like I am wearing pjs yet I am still so stylish. The long flowy character, price, and button up details are just right. There are only a couple sizes left in this darling top so I found similar options here and here. OhBlthye is also is in the process of restocking so keep an eye out and I will certainly let you all know on Instagram! I swear by these white jeans. They are one of the softest pair of jeans I own and you can’t beat the price point. They also are very stretchy and not a cheap material (trust me I can tell the difference).

Hip Hip Hooray, Happy Friday! Today is an extra special day for me. I get to join a trip with my mommy dear. Since Ted is out of town for a guys trip, my mom invited me along with one of the trips she is working. She is a flight attendant for United (biggest blessing ever) so we are leaving to Philly first thing in the morning! While she will be working the flight, I will be sleeping!  We have some family in Philly so we plan to spend our Friday night with them then come back first thing in the morning on Saturday. I am just excited to spend time with my mom. Mom has been out of work for 2.5 years due to Breast Cancer and other surgeries she had to have. Praising the Lord that He has healed her and gave her the strength to go back to work. She started last week so I am excited to see her work in action! Asking for continuous prayer for strenght and full recover for my mommy dear. It’s just so great to see her back and kicking it again after years of Doctor appointments, surgeries, chemo, and bed rest. The Lord is good!

Linen Pants: Forever 21 | Top: NYDJ | Shoes: Nine West (I can live in these) | Necklace: Etsy | Earrings: Kendra Scott

It’s no secret I am a sucker for anything high wasted. These linen pants are only $16 so you are going to want to snag them fast. I love the big belt detail and the stretchiness that gives it complete comfort. Now Forever21 is my goto for trendy items that I know I won’t have to splurge or don’t mind them lasting a long while. This top however is a staple and I know it will get plenty of worn time so an investment is worth it. It is not a break in the bank but something to spend a little more than 20 bucks for. Luckily, its also on sale and comes in plenty of other colors. I love the simplicity yet sophisticated outfit that would be perfect for business meetings.

I think linen pants have been on my mind lately since we just invested in linen sheets. I love our sheets and it makes me never want to leave my bed. Luckily our sheets and duvet set is also on sale so if you are on a hunt for some linens I would check them out! Happy Thursday loves and thank you for stopping by. Today is a day of lunching with blogger babes, gift shopping and celebrating a dear friends birthday.
