OOTD: Rompin' it on the road.

Romper: Body Central || Jean Jacket: Forever 21 || Shoes: The Walking Company || Sunglasses: Charming Charlie || Necklaces: {gift}, c/o A-List Greek Designs || Bracelet: {Local boutique} || Purse: Target || Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Demure

     Here is an outfit that I wore a couple days ago during an earlier part of my road trip from Maine to Charlotte, NC for college! Who says that you can't look cute on road trips?! This outfit was super simple to put together (and many parts of it were very affordable!), and it was so comfortable to wear while still looking stylish!

     I got this romper a couple years ago at Body Central for only five dollars! You heard me, five dollar makes me holler! (I feel like saying that makes me feel like I'm in an episode of Honey Boo Boo... which by the way is a show I have never actually watched an episode of. ;-) ) I feel like Body Central is kind of a hit or miss mall store but this romper was definitely a HIT! The darker floral colors are perfect to wear as a fall transition piece- I've worn it in fall before with my cowboy boots! 

     I am also just starting to get on board with the layering necklace trend (for myself!). This dainty ADPi necklace that A-List Greek Designs sent me to review last winter is the absolute pefect layering piece. You will get to see another outfit that I layered it in next week (ironically with a different monogram necklace!). 

     Do any of you recognize the brown background where these photos were taken? My dad took these pictures of this outfit outside of a Cracker Barrel somewhere in Pennsylvania! Hey... the building was a better background then the parking lot- when on the road you gotta do what you gotta do! ;-)

     Be sure to check out yesterday's post about my Top 10 Dorm Room Essentials for more about my back-to-school road trip! Next week on the blog I will be finishing my recap of my vacation to New Brunswick, Canada and also sharing some outfits that I wore during my last couple weeks at home in Maine!

     And tonight I will finally be back in the wonderful Queens City!!
