When I saw mom Meralis Hood at the uber-popular Monkey's Treehouse here in Nashville, I knew I had to take a photo.
She was so simply dressed and yet so on-trend. After a morning of seeing nothing but jeans and t-shirts, it was an awesome sight to behold.
"Oh, I look awful today, too!" she exclaimed when I asked to take her picture.
I wonder what she looks like on a GOOD day?!
Mostly, I'm shocked that Meralis has managed to take two trends I'm extremely iffy about -- rompers and tribal prints -- and rock the look. She wore a simple key pendant necklace, put her hair in a casual side ponytail, and finished off the look with a cute pair of leather flip-flops.
The effect: casual summer style that appears to be effortless.
What I didn't know when I spotted Meralis is that there's a very good reason she's so well dressed.
Want to know her secret?
In the meantime, here's how you can score Meralis's look for yourself:
Target has several juniors' rompers that look almost identical to Meralis's, so I suspect she got hers there. This one is the Xhilaration Junior Smocked Strapless Romper (Target, $19.99) and it's sold out online -- but check out the store if you like this look, because I'm betting they'll have some in stock. This romper also comes in green and purple.
I love this simple White Gold Key Pendant (Kohls, $31.25), which retailed for $125! Again, this necklace is sold out online, but check your local Kohls, ladies -- this necklace is a steal!
Keep your look simple with this Mossimo Gemma Flip-Flop (Target, $12.99).
