Sam Style

sam scarf

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! 🙂

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!

Covet: MadewellCovet: Madewell by rootandrose featuring Madewell

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!



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

Halloween Pinup


Kat’s favorite holiday is coming up and that means she is drawing creepy zombies and scary mutated people. Buuuuut I decided to go the less scary route and post one of her more PG creations today. This is her modern/fashionable take on the witch. If anyone is looking to dress us as a witch for Halloween, here is an outfit idea!

The Best is yet to Come

Best1This shirt says it all…..I believe that all our best has yet to come and that we’re still destined for happier things! If you’re having troubles in your life, just remember to not sweat the small stuff and know that your best days are right around the corner! (Or you can take the fast way and do some retail therapy because that always instantly cheers me up)






Dogue….she’s so posh and hip with her chambray top. An outfit is never complete without Sam photobombing and taking over!

It’s Monday already….the weekend always feels too short. Here is an #OOTD of mine from the weekend. This is always the outfit I gravitate towards when I don’t want to put much thought into an outfit, but I still want to look put together. Can’t go wrong with some boy fit denim shorts and a slouchy top. Stylin’ while stayin’ comfy! As we like to say it in the south….have a great week y’all!
