Friday Five {And A Romper You Need}


We've made it to the weekend! Billy has totally taken advantage of me lately. Get your mind out of the gutter friends...I'm talking about in regards to food. Typically, we are pretty healthy around here and save the weekends for splurging a bit. Not this week by any means! We're still on the eating out "kick" from this past week and Billy has totally taken advantage of it because he knows this rarely happens. Like last night, for example, fish and chips and a massive queso dip from one of our favorite restaurants (Rusty Bucket). If I know anything at all, it's that those types of foods is not going to get me rock hard abs for bikini season. But hey, everyone's gotta live a little, right? Next week we will be back on the healthy eating track. So, Billy, if you're reading, milk the weekend for all you've got... 

Here's what has been going on in my life lately... 

-Sometimes I like to think I'm one of those cool fashion bloggers, when I know damn well I'm not, by any means. Here's to trying. I've been loving this little number I got from Kiki La Rue. It's comfortable, fun and bright for the summer, and you know how much rompers are in style lately!

Get yourself one: here


-This is an exciting week and weekend here in Columbus. Every year the PGA Memorial Tournament is hosted here at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin. It's known to be a lot of the golfers favorite tournament, and 17 out of 20 of the top golfers in the world are here this year playing! It's been a tradition, for as long as I can remember, to go to the tournament at least one day of the week and we all go to a restaurant/bar called the Bogey Inn to party at night. This year, I got us free tickets for Saturday and Billy is so excited!








...if I see Tiger ladies, don't worry, I'll flip him off for all of us.
and then get a picture.


-I've gone to the blonde side (hair). Just kidding. But I did get blonde highlights and long layers put in my hair last night. Typically when warmer weather hits I get the urge to freshen up my hair and get highlights, so when that happened this week, I gave in. I'm so glad I did because I am loving them! She did a great job and I have zero complaints (which says a lot because usually I'm not crazy about it..). This picture isn't the greatest, but here's a little look at the new hurr...



-The adorable bloggers you know (or should know) and love, Erin and Ashley, got me the cutest birthday packages. Not gonna lie, I felt pretty special when I got Erin's package all the way from Amish country Indiana in the mail. You see, Erin is my role model. She will probably kill me for saying that. She hooked me up big time with a yellow (fitting, right?) statement necklace, Starbucks gift card, and candy. Girlfriend knows the way to my heart. Thank you, Erin. Now send yourself in the mail next time, kapeesh?


Ashley and I went to high school together and have become really close recently. She was so sweet and got me a beautiful coral necklace, coral bangle, and rose gold earrings! They couldn't be more perfect and I think I've already worn all of them 3 times. Thanks Ash! :)



-You know how I said above I like to pretend I'm one of those "cool, fashion bloggers"? Well, this girl is actually becoming one. She's tall, gorgeous, and has killer style. Her blog, Basically Bre, has become one of my daily reads and if I had a brother, I'd want him to date her. But that's neither here nor there, because I don't have a brother, and she isn't single. Boo. Anyways, Bre is the biggest cutie, lives in NC (jealous!), and says peace out, bishes. What's not to like about her? I mean, please, look at that chevron skirt below. I die......

Hello KC&CO readers! 
I'm Bre from Basically Bre!!!

I am your typical 20 something, blonde, southern girl except that I have a problem, its called shopping. I don't just shop for anything, I shop for clothes, shoes, bags, etc. and I do it a lot. Hence my closet currently busting at its seams, I have take over my side, half of my mans side and about 3/4 of the rack where his suits and ties hang. oops, sorry babe! Oh and I also LOVE overflowing posts with pictures, so I'm sorry in advance!


Just a small glimpse into the cave I call a closet...

I currently live in the great southern state of North Carolina, residing in the Queen City. Quiz for ya: what city in NC is the QC? Go!
I live downtown in some overly priced high rise (you only live once, not to be confused with "YOLO"..I'll smack you if you say that) with the man of my dreams, Jeremy, aka J booty. And no, we're not married. Glad thats settled. 
He looks like this in every picture, I don't know if he actually has a normal smile? He keeps me smiling day after day, so thats all that matters! 

I am a little on the crazy side, I have quite a mouth on me and I am never afraid to speak my mind. I use my blog as an outlet to my daily thoughts, rambles and the occasional outfit post. I am not a high fashion blogger, but I like to think that I have a passion and a "knack" for fashion! I am not afraid to try a style or trend most would think is outrageous or only for the runway! I never spend too much money on clothing either, I am a serious bargain shopper, hey you have to be when you shop like I do! 


Like I said I will occasionally feel inspired and do a "I wish I was some fashion blogger post. Like this one, still obsessed with this adorable high-low look. Shirts or skirts, I want them all! 

I just recently took it upon myself to start "Fashion Friday" where I decide once again that I think I can be fashion blogger and I just post some pictures of my latest creations! About a month ago I started working with my friend Brooke from Daily Chic, she's a beautiful and wonderful person! Outfit below is courtesy of Miss. Brooke and I just die over that skirt!!!! Who doesn't need a chevron skirt in their closet right now?

So thats all I have for y'all today! I hope you decide to head on over to my blog and look around for a bit, I encourage you to stay for awhile, become a daily/weekly reader! 
Oh and just for all you awesome KC&CO readers heres a little sneak peek at this coming Friday Fashion...

Yes, thats some serious neon!

peace out bishes!

  20. Your romper is super cute!! Rompers always fit me a little funky. I think I must have a long torso. That and the maxi dress have me baffled. And I like the blonde highlights. Pretty pretty!
