| dress: clove via nordstrom rack | heels: the mode collective
| necklace: c/o happiness boutique | ear crawler: baublebar |

A few weeks ago, one of my best friends got married.  
The wedding was amazing, she was beautiful, and we celebrated into the wee hours of the night.
This was the rehearsal dinner dress that I stumbled upon at Nordstrom Rack.
The classic shape & bold color makes it easy to wear to any event.
The Happiness Boutique sent me this great statement necklace that really complimented the royal blue in the dress.

bathing suit: mara hoffman | shorts: abercrombie

If you follow me on Instagram ( @avizastyle ) or Snapchat ( @avizacard ) you know that this past weekend I was in Southern Virginia at Lake Gaston with 27 friends.
Yes you saw that right, 27 people in one house.
It sounds crazy, I know, but this was actually our 3rd annual lake trip with roughly the same group of people.
Truth be told, I don't really love large group outings (I blame this on failed immature group beach trips in college). So many people confined to one space is a bit overwhelming, but this group is pure perfection.
No drama, just fun in the sun (and plenty of mimosas!).

I scored this suit at the Mara Hoffman online sample sale at the beginning of the summer for a crazy price but have only had the chance to wear it in Vegas (seen here).
Luckily, I wore the monokini almost the whole trip because it was just so comfortable and hid my insecurities so I was free to frolic around.

Even though the summer is winding down, have you tried the one-piece trend yet??

| romper: h&m concious collection| jacket: gap | brogues: madewell
| bag: loeffler randallsunglasses: urban | necklaces: gorjana via rocksbox |

A few weekends ago I made a late night impromtu road trip to Richmond, VA.
Luckily, I already had a bag packed with a few things that included this romper.
I will say the only other romper I own I wore here (but I still have not altered the straps. typical.) and I have steered clear mostly of this type of garment.
I've always been envious of the girls I've seen look so chic and effortless wearing only one article of clothing.
I was just browsing the mall one day after work and just peeked into the H&M and seriously fell in love with the print first.  I mean, who doesn't love  a good palm print?!
I have yet to find a great fitting romper but I really loved what I saw in the green leaves on the fabric that I decided to test it out by trying it on.
Boy am I glad I did.
It seriously fits like a glove and I could not be more obsessed with this thing.
Day or night it just works.
This is obviously what I wore to brunch at The Village Cafe on Sunday morning but check back soon to see how I styled it for a night out on the town.
