The sexy summer dress of your dreams is here- And it’s affordable! I discovered this gorgeous dress at Target a while back and wore it for the first time this weekend! I got tons of compliments on it and it is so flattering! Priced at $30, this dress is a steal. I paired mine with caged heels for an evening out, but it would also look great with sandals or flip flops for a more casual vibe.

Sheer Perfection!

18 Jul

Let me start by saying that I love all things pink.  I love any and every shade of the pretty color but I’m partial to blush.  Blush pink is so soft and feminine, looks great on all skin tones, and goes with everything…..which led me to a year-long search for the prettiest sheer pink nail polishes. By sheer I mean that they’re almost like a clear polish with a slight pink tint to them.

 

I’ve tried so many pinks along the way and have narrowed it down to my favorite 3 that I’m going to share with you today.  The colors below are perfect for year round wear, but I especially love wearing them in the Summer. Also these beautiful understated hues are perfect for your wedding day.

Starting with the sheerest of them all,  Essie Sugar Daddy is like your nails, only better. This color looks like you have really healthy nails- think nude with a hint of pink.

Next up, a slightly pinker -but still not too pink color is Essie Mademoiselle. It is sheer just like Sugar daddy but can build (2-3 coats) to a pretty milky pink.

Lastly, this super shiny pink(slightly more pink than the others)  is OPI Passion. This color is similar to the others and can be built up just like mademoiselle can be. It’s the shiniest and longest wearing of the three as well.

Note: All three colors can be built up but remain sheer.

I recently discovered the Sugarfix by Baublebar line of jewelry at Target. I’ve always loved Baublebar jewelry and they’ve been reasonably priced, but this partnership with Target has even further reduced prices- tons of stuff under $20!!!! My latest obsession is a layered gold choker from the collection that was only $16.99. Head over to Target and check out their super cute, affordable designs!

Fall Lipstick Must have

2 Oct

Every year myself and countless bloggers compile lists of our favorite Fall lipsticks to share with the world. Every year the same lipstick is on my list. I’m sharing only one color this year because I feel so strongly that it should be a part of every woman’s Fall lip color collection. Without a doubt, Mac Rebel is my go-to, must have Fall lip color.mac

The beautiful rich berry/wine hue is gorgeous and looks amazing on all skin tones as well.  I can’t even remember what tube I’m on at this point- I literally wear it all Fall long and into Winter as well. I love love love this color! What are your favorite fall lippies?

Choked Up!

8 Sep

Chokers are back y’all! Well, they’ve been back for a while, but they’re catching on like wildfire. I’m old enough to remember when chokers were all the rage in the 90’s. They are definitely back with a vengeance~ as are the entire 90’s(good and bad).  Anyways, this past weekend, I received two chokers that I ordered from Forever 21 to wear with a specific outfit. I ordered black to be safe & burgundy hoping it would match the heels I was going to wear. It ended up matching perfectly, so I went with that one. Long story, short, I got so many compliments and messages about the chokers after I shared them on Instagram and Snapchat- especially after I shared the PRICE!!! Both chokers were under $10 total!  So without further ado…… here are links to both chokers. What I love most about these chokers, is that they are dainty and appear to wrap around the neck. I think they are so cute and bring an element of style to a look without overpowering it like a large ribbon type of choker could.
