Lazy Daze Via OnePiece

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-OnePiece-Lazy-Daze

Anyone who knows me knows I love nothing more than lazing around with my pup. Whether we’re relaxing on the beach, reading in the backyard, or having a Lifetime movie marathon in bed, there is nothing better than cozying up to my little one while donning my adult onesie. Yep. My onesie.

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-One-Piece-Collage

This OnePiece has seriously taken over my life. I live in it. Honestly…  there is just something about being all swaddled up like a big baby. They are super soft, and insanely comfortable! Plus, the OnePiece being sported by some super fashionable celebs such as Vanessa Hudgens, Kylie Jenner, Little Mix, Derek Hough, and the guys of 1D.

Oh… and P.S. Frida and I are obsessed with this stuffed narwhal, or any narwhal for that matter.

How do you like to spend your lazy days??

The NAKED Nail

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-Mary-Kate-And-Ashley-Olsen-The-Naked-Nail

I find myself to be a strange mix between a product junkie and a minimalist.

If I have a dinner, a date, a GNO, or some kind of event to attend… I’m all about prepping, primping, and pulling myself together. HOWEVER, 9 times out of 10 you will see me sans makeup with a giant rats nest on top of my head. Sorry, but I’m a busy girl, and I’m not about to waste an hour getting ready to go to Whole Foods or hot yoga. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

That being said… I’m all about the naked nail trend that is happening. Yep. Naked. Nails. Not ‘nude’… NAKED. I’m a nail-biter, and a picker… so as soon as I get that first chip it’s game over and I’ve picked the rest of my polish off… leaving a Hansel & Gretel style nail polish trail wherever I go. I know. SO gross… but true.

The Olsens have been embracing the naked nail for a LONG time now… which is good enough for me! #WWOD?

Just remember to keep them short, clean, and buffed… cuz long naked nails are a no-no!

Oh ya, and this trend does NOT go for your tootsies too. Keep those puppies polished at all times!

Smarty Pants

So… now that I have a closet full of maxi skirts I’m noticing a new trend is taking over and I’m REALLY into it!! I’m talking about swapping out your maxi for some sexy pants. Yep. Pants.

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-The-Skinny-Confidential-Book-Launch-Party-Croquet

I attended the most MAJ event last weekend for my babe, Lauryn’s book launch and noticed that probably half of the sexy chicas there were totally rocking this trend. #bitchesinbritches ♥ I love this look because I think it’s sophisticated, sexy, semi-masculine, and super comfy. Also, you don’t have to worry about pulling a ‘Britney’ ( aka giving everyone an eye-full ) while getting out of the car or hopping down from the bar. I was working this trend as well in a pair of sheer, high waisted pants with lace detailing down the sides paired with a crop top. It’s all about showing just enough skin… and trust me, it’s a fine line.

Anyhow, here are some of my favorite sexy pantalones…

Real vs. Steal: Cuff Me

It’s no secret I loooooove me some MK&A, I mean, these girls just get it! When I saw this Elizabeth and James Delano Cuff I HAD to have it. The double gold bands with the Lapiz detailing… i die.
As much as I love this cuff… I knew there had to be steal out there, cuz let’s face it… I’d rather get a whole new outfit H2T than just one amazing piece. What I found is pretty darn close minus the gemstones, but whateves, it will still totally get the job done.

So what do u think? Do you die over the real, or would you be just as stoked on the steal?

What She Wore… Queen Delevingne

THE-FASHION-BITE-KATIE-ROOF-QUEEN-CARA-DELEVIGNE-STYLE

Who doesn’t LOVE Ms. Cara Delevingne… I mean, c’mon. She takes tomboy chic to a whole new level.

One minute she is walking the runway hand in hand with Karl Lagerfeld, and the next she’s court side at the Nets game sporting some Tims & a snapback, smoking an e-cig, and making out with Michelle Rodriguez ↚ ( woah, what? ya… that happened ). That may explain why she turned down an invite to Leo DeCaprio’s hotel room ↚ ( ya… that happened too ).

Anyhooooooo, I love her IDGAF attitude, but I love her style even more. Wanna snag queen Cara’s look… here’s what she wore…

Real vs. Steal: Ring Around The Rosy

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-Ring-Around-The-Rosy-Floral-Print-Trend

I am kind of obsessed with anything and everything floral these days. I’m usually an über-tomboy… but I think flowers are the easiest way to femme it up a little.

This floral slip dress is seriously to die. It’s so girly and feminine and I feel like I would literally wear it with everything… Docs ✓, knee-highs ✓, an oversized flannel ✓, a slouchy beanie ✓✓✓. I esp. love the lace detailing at the bottom. I was literally about to pull the trigger and finalize my “shopping cart” when I thought… lemme make SURE I can’t find a steal for this bad boy. Lo and behold… I found the perfect one. Sry… but this little number is almost identical. Plus, it’s under $20 bucks. Double score.

+ Pins And Needles Lace-Trim Chiffon Slip Dress $59

+ FXXI Slit Floral Slip Dress $19.80

I feel like they are both totes affordable and equally adorable… so what do u guys think…? Go for it with the ‘real’… or save with the ‘steal‘?
