Sam Style

Sam is stylin’ in her checkered scarf because you know she’s all about the latest trends! But on a real note, if you have unwanted/old scarfs, they can be recycled as a really cute collar for your dog. Dump the boring collar and give your dog a mini makeover! They’ll be going on car rides in style! 🙂


Spring 2015 Pantone Colors

Pantone Colors Header
Pantone has revealed the colors of Spring 2015! It’s a fresh take on the pastels, and it’s getting me excited for the season.

Andddddd *Drumroll* The Pantone Color of 2015 is Marsala! It’s a lighter burgundy color and my favorite color! describes the color as “A naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls.” Variations of the shade essentially look just like the wine/burgundy colors that you find all over retailers. Here are some ideas on how you can incorporate the color into your outfits:

Covet: Madewell

Beauty in the basic. Madewell has got the basics down! I appreciate when designers reinvent the basic and turn it into something unique. Is it just me or do you also get excited when you see a retailer’s catalog in your mail? I love drawing inspiration from Madewell’s detailed catalogs! Every outfit is styled with grace and the photography is just so dreamy. I just wanted to quickly share my favorite cold weather clothing pieces from the Fall/Winter collection!

My all-time favorite piece out of this Fall/Winter collection is the black leather jacket (the price makes me cry a little inside, but the quality in the leather is noice). I’ve been dying to buy a new one and so far I can just dream about Madewell’s perfection.

Over the hump and on to the weekend! I am READY to unwind and lay in bed ALL WEEKEND!



It’s Love at First Sight

Here’s a midweek cheer up! Halfway through another week and it’s a busy one! This cute illustration by Kat is a somewhat accurate depiction of how much my rabbit loves Sam’s tail. He loves to put his face in her tail and Sam hates it and hates him. You can buy this print on Kat’s Society6 page and it also can come in a cushion, tote, blanket, and soooo much more! Buy here!

Plaid is Rad

how to wear plaid

We all know plaid is one of the most festive prints to wear for the holiday season, but sometimes it can be a bit tricky to style. Head on over to the blog, myCosmeticBag, to see my tips and tricks for stylin’ plaid for Fall (even though it feels like Winter right now).

Currently, I’ve hit an all time low on DIY creativity or any blog posts in general for R&R! Be patient with us and we will get back on track once again!

Thanks for reading ❤

Getaway for a Day

Beach please! I escaped the city and headed to the beachside for a relaxing day trip. There’s something about the beach at sunset that puts me in a peaceful trance. I bet I could’ve stayed on the beach all night if my stomach didn’t start rumbling for food!

A big thanks to my talented photographer friend, Jennifer, for capturing the day perfectly! Check out her photos at J.Nguyen Photography and like her page!

Daniel Wellington watch (see previous post)

Daniel Wellington

I’m sure you’ve seen this watch all over social media and it’s definitely deserves all the limelight! Daniel Wellington was kind enough to gift me their Classic Sheffield and I’m in love. The thin, sleek look of this watch matches with all of my outfits and the clean face makes it easy to read. I naturally got the men’s watch (40mm) to the women’s (36mm) because I like a larger face and I am so happy with my decision!

It’s also your lucky day because Daniel Wellington gave me a discount code for my readers for 15% OFF your own watch! Just enter “rootandroseblog” at checkout! Happy shopping!


There are other classic designs you can choose from and an array of colorful straps! Take your pick and don’t forget to enter “rootandroseblog” at checkout for 15% off your purchase! Screen Shot 2014-10-16 at 11.54.41 AM
