This past weekend I took a little road trip to Hershey Park for July 4th with my mom, sis and brother-in-law [and baby]. I have not been there since I was little. My father used to love taking us there and this trip definitely brought back so many childhood memories. To be honest, I have not gone away with both my mom and sister in a very long time. I feel like now that she is married and pregnant, we are going to be doing so many more things together as a family and that makes me extremely happy. This weekend was seriously so much fun and I just felt like a kid again. Although it rained majority of the time, we still managed to spend an entire day at the park and enjoy ourselves. I overcame my life long fear of rollercoasters with the help of my new brother. Well by help I mean he actually gave me no choice. [lol] But seriously, it was an amazing feeling to overcome that fear and I am so happy that I did. We laughed so much, we played games, and even my mom went on a few things with us. I love that she included the monorail as one of the "rides." [haha] I shared a ton more on snapchat including some silly videos. I was hoping to create my first travel vlog, but unfortunately I didn't get enough footage. That's ok though because ultimately my goal with this trip was to truly be in the moment and be fully present there with my family. I look forward to so many more trips like this once the baby comes!
Here's a compilation of photos from my weekend road trip.
I am trying to recuperate from a fun-filled weekend in Hersey Park with my family. My body literally feels like it was beaten up. I guess that's what an entire day at an amusement park will do to you! Anyway, I am kicking off the new week with this cute little number.
Romper: Charlotte Russe | Shoes: Schutz | Clutch: Gypsy Warrior (old, love this)
I love the fact that this "dress" is actually a romper. It makes it that much more comfortable and fun to wear. I am all about easy breezy pieces for summer and it doesn't get much better than this. I had fun styling this because there were so many different possibilities. I ended up going with these amazing statement shoes that I got a couple of months ago. I have been so anxious to wear these, but didn't really know how I was going to style them. I think that they worked really well with this outfit. They definitely helped to make it pop!
I am all for blush tones, but sometimes they can wash me out if I don't incorporate another color or print into the mix. I added in this snakeskin clutch to bring some more dimension to the look. It definitely helped to bring this all together. The next time you are wearing a solid colored outfit, try to add in a printed piece. You will see how quickly it can change your whole outfit! And last but not least, instead of a big necklace, I went with a statement bracelet. :)
