Black Lace Romper.

Romper: c/o Tobi // Shoes: Michael Kors // Sunglasses: {old} // Earrings: c/o Micha Store // Bracelet: c/o Stella and Dot {old} // Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Pink Velvet 

     I was never much for nightlife before I turned 21. The few 18+ bars and clubs in Charlotte never really appealed to me, and still don't to be honest. I never had a fake ID for a number of reasons, but first and foremost because it is illegal. And since my college was so small, it didn't have a great party scene. (Plus the whole idea of college house parties kind of creeps me out- too much can go wrong!) This is a very long way of saying that it wasn't until last fall, after my birthday, that I started enjoying the late night scene and seeing a different side of Charlotte.

     With a change in my nightlife agenda came a need for new items in my wardrobe, specifically good "going out" clothes. In the winter, I usually just wear a pair of skinny jeans and a cute long sleeved top to go out in, but during the warmer months, the outfit potential is endless! The perfect going out outfit is one that is a touch sexy, a touch classy, and lightweight to move in for dancing purposes, while still looking trendy and super cute! 

     Enter online retailer Tobi as my new shopping destination for nightlife attire. They sell more cute rompers, dresses, (and skirts and pants and tops... etc!) than I even knew existed, and most would be just perfect for a night out on the town! I knew as soon as I saw this beautiful black lace romper listed on their website that I had to have it. Is it out of my comfort zone? Yes. But is it also one of the most comfortable pieces of clothing that I've ever put on my body? Yes again! The fabric is so soft and breathable, and it is so flattering on! I am wearing a size Small for sizing reference. I cannot wait to wear this fun romper for my next night out! Also FYI: New customers to Tobi get 50% off of their first order! 

     Speaking of nights out.... I actually haven't gone out since before getting my concussion last month! I am doing very well in concussion recovery- I went back to work the week after graduation, and I have been doing just about everything else in my normal life by this point. But my doctor encouraged me to stay away from both alcohol and loud environments for a longer period of time, as both of these things can give someone recovering from a concussion a set-back. :/ I am hoping that in the next week or so I might be able to enjoy going out again. Until then- I have a beautiful Tobi romper in my closet that cannot wait to be worn! 

     Hope that y'all are having a great start to your Memorial Day Weekend! I'll be back tomorrow posting a recap of the best sales to shop for the long weekend. I am excited today to be spending the afternoon out at a pool with some college friends- the weather in Charlotte has been lovely this week and I haven't really gotten to enjoy it yet!
