Romper: here  & here  | Shoes: Dolce Vita – similar links

So I have had this romper for years and I decided to take it out for a little Fiesta to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with you all. I found a couple of similar off the shoulder rompers here and here. I can’t stop with the white and I am just sorry. I added a party hat and some lace ups to to celebrate such a fun holiday.

Oh, and I can’t forget the Topo Chico that I can’t stop drinking. I think I hit that old person stage where I just love sparkling water. I order it everywhere now. I remember being at a bar a couple of years ago and the bar tender had the Topo Chico logo tattooed on her arm. I literally thought she was insane but I now understand her obsession. Anyway enough of my rant about sparkling water, ha! I hope you all have a fun and safe Cindo de Mayo. Order a skinny Marg for me. Sadly, hubs and I have to skip out on the yummy Mexican food tonight because we are on the way to NYC! We literally drove straight from Austin to the airport. It has been crazy around here but I love it. Follow along on social media to see what we are up too!

Sometimes, clothes can take my breath away. Literally. Anyone else or just me? I literally died at the elaborate details of this dress and then I died again at the under $100 price tag. The lace detail is everything and it being a white maxi is another bonus. I can’t rave more about this dress. I actually bought it for New York where we are heading to this weekend. My father in law is being awarded some fancy award so the family is flying up! I decided to go with another conservative option and I can’t wait to share. I got a similar split white maxi that I also will be wearing in the big apple for our Broadway night planned.

I am so stinking excited. Make sure to follow along on Instagram for our adventures (@dressupbuttercup), snapchat (dederaad), and our travel hashtag (#raadstravel). Until then I am in Austin with Teddy for his business trip. Ill be sharing some of my favorite spots on my social media today. I worked at the cutest coffee/ bakery / flower shop yesterday at Waltons Fancy and Staple. If you are ever in ATX, I recommend checking it out! For dinner we went to East Side King for some interesting but good food. They have a food truck and multiple locations. It’s so weird being in Austin and not having any of my friends still live here. During my college years, my friends all lived in Austin but sadly everyone parted their ways and left Austin a stranger to me! SO weird. Anyways, happy hump day y’all!

Who else is excited that fun earrings are coming back?! Nothing against my Kendras but I have been so bored with them lately that fun tassel earrings make me giddy again! I rounded up some adorable tassel earrings that range from $9.99 to $45.00 that are supper affordable! I bought some blue tassel earrings from H&M ( posted on IG ) and I haven’t been able to take them off. Sadly they aren’t sold online but I found similar ones in black here and a yellow similar version is online here. I still can’t believe the prices on some of these bad boys. I also included a couple more on the widget below.

Happy Tuesday y’all! Ted and I headed to Austin last night for work and it was super last minute. We saw some old good friends last night and then I came back to the hotel and passed out with out thinking I had any responsibility like to get my post up! I woke up in a frantic so if you checked back earlier, I apologize! Thanks for stopping by and supporting.

Romper: Everything But Water (half off, people) | Shoes: Qupid ($16) | Purse: Tory Burch

How cute is this Santa Fe romper from Everything But Water for $23.99! This entire outfit is under forty dollars and I love a good look for a good price. The colors on this romper are so much fun and is perfect for this time of year. I love the pops of pink, deep V neck, and bell sleeves. Rompers are my go to this time of year because they are so effortless and breathable. Believe it or not, I do get lazy when dressing up sometimes and a romper is the perfect go to. I also love these lace up sandals from Qupid. They are very very well priced. You can also find more sizes here. These are my first lace ups and I think they are so much fun. I love giving into a trend but not spending an insane amount of money on them.

Happy Monday love bugs! I had such an exhausting weekend but a really really good one. This week we have a busy one preparing for our trips!
