As I type this post up, I am sitting inside our NYC apartment, even though it’s a perfect, sunny, Spring day outside. I am taking care of my boyfriend who just had surgery for a lingering sports injury. He can’t really do much on his own right now so I’ve been cooped up inside, at his side, for the past 4 days. The only time I’ve really been out is to get groceries and a quick stop at the bank.
So yes, cabin fever has definitely set in!
I was in the worst mood today (if you watched my Insta Story you witnessed that I resorted to eating ice cream for breakfast, straight outta the carton) and even considered writing a future post entitled “10 Reasons I Hate Living in NYC” (haha). I might still actually do that because living here isn’t always just rainbows and unicorns, but for now I will just be grateful that I get to live in the best city in the world.
Tonight, I felt much better after I took a walk around the neighborhood and made a quick stop at TJ Maxx about 15 mins before they closed. Just that little bit of retail therapy was enough to turn my mood right around!
When I got back we watched Pitch Perfect (you can always rely on Fat Amy to turn your frown upside down.) By some divine miracle my BF actually agreed to this movie – I think he secretly loves it!
Anyway, these pictures were taken in better times (lol) on one of the first really warm and sunny days this year.
I love how this striped Tobi romper has adjustable ties on each arm, so you can tie it as tight or as loose as you’d like. Nothing is worse than putting on a cute off-the-shoulder top in the morning, leaving the house, and then realizing you won’t be able to lift your arms the whole day. #beentheredonethat
And, have I mentioned how much I love wearing a good romper in the summer? They’re just so damn easy to wear. No worrying about matching your top and bottom. And they usually cinch in at the waist so they’re super flattering (although today I decided to pair my romper with something similar to this cool belt).
Now that Summer is almost here (I seriously thought this day might never come), stay tuned for lots more romper styles to be featured on the blog! And, coincidentally, lots more pinstripe styles, too! If you want to see my top pinstripe picks for the season, click here.
I’ve recently revamped the entire Quartz & Leisure newsletter, so if you don’t want to miss out on any of that romper action, you should probably sign up here. I promise I won’t bombard you with countless daily emails (only about 1 or 2x a month).
And finally, I want to thank all of you who follow along with my daily content on my social media channels. Please continue to tag me in your posts, share with your friends, and spread the love! And for those who aren’t following, why don’ you get in on the action? I can be found on: Instagram, Twitter & Pinterest! 🙂
