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.

Aspen Trip!

11 Jan

Happy Monday everyone! I got such an overwhelming response to my Aspen pictures that I’m going to share some more here. It was the first trip to Aspen for my wife and I but definitely not our last. I feel like the way we planned it was perfect. We landed in Denver and rented a car and drove to Aspen, which is one of the most beautiful stretches of snow capped mountains I’ve ever seen. The drive took 3.5 hours but flew by as we got lost in all the scenery. Once we arrived in Aspen we stayed 4 days which is a nice amount of time to see the sights and partake in activities. I really loved ice skating but the ultimate bucket list check off was snowmobiling deep into the Aspen mountains for hours. We even saw moose!!!!! As usual, we ate our way through the town- Aspen is known for their strong culinary game and  were not let down once. Everything we ate was amazing! And as far as scenery goes, everywhere we looked was straight off of a post card. It was breathtaking to say the least.

I keep getting asked “Is aspen expensive?” Expensive would be an understatement! It is off the charts crazy expensive from the hotels, to activities, to shopping, to dining. When places are this astronomical in price, a once in a lifetime visit will usually suffice, but there was something so magical about Aspen that I will go back and overspend, because frankly, it was worth it! I suggest everybody visit this gem during the winter months!

Fall Nail Color Favorites!

21 Nov

I love beautiful rich dark shades for fall and winter and thought I’d share my favorites colors with you.  They are both by Essie, but most polish companies make these shades or similar shades. I do favor Essie when it comes to darker shades because their formulas are super thick and don’t streak.

Stylenomics is a deep green shade.

Carry On is a dark deep burgundy wine shade.

Fall’s Must Have Hat Under $20

4 Nov

Fedoras are a Fall must have, I wear them year round but am particularly fond of them during the cooler seasons. Fedoras work on everyone, even if you think you’re not a hat person. Fedoras can pretty much be worn with any hairstyle, I wear mine with my hair down, with a side braid and with a low bun.  If you love fedoras, you’ll love my selections below, all under $20 of course. And at these prices, even if you’re not a hat person, now’s the time to step out of your comfort zone and get your first fedora. It’ll look great on you, I promise:)

Look For Less: Lace Up Heels!

6 Oct

Hi everyone,  I’m pretty excited about this look for less post because I’m so into lace up shoes right now. Lace up flats are all the rage and these are pretty much the “heel” version of them. Many of my look for less posts feature something super expensive and a similar option for waaaaaaay less. This time my “expensive” option is actually mid priced, BUT I know $120 for heels is a lot to spend if you’re on a budget…..soooooo I found a similar pair priced at $35. If you can afford the $120 option- great! If not……I got you girl!

Note: Both of these heels come in a variety of colors. Click links below to shop.

Must Have Fall Footwear Styles.

1 Sep

Is it September already??? Fall is right around the corner and I wanted to share my favorite Fall footwear styles with you. From cute & casual to sexy, these styles will have you covered throughout Fall and into Winter.

Click links below to shop the pictured shoes.

Booties: Booties are a MUST for Fall. (although I wear them year round) They are cute and comfy while giving you a slight lift with a 1-2 inch heel. Booties go with everything and you need some now! Stick to basics or get a pair with buckles or fringe, it’s up to you.

Trolley bootie

Lace up Flats: Lace up flats are so HOT right now, the comfortable, yet sexy spin on the traditional ballet flat will have you wanting a pair in every color!

Leopard Pumps: As Jenna Lyons once said “leopard is a neutral” and I couldn’t agree more.  Leopard pumps will give any outfit just the right amount of oomph!

oaklee

Burgundy Pumps: Burgundy is such a rich beautiful hue and is the perfect alternative to red through the cooler months.

Brown Riding Boots: I pretty much live in my riding boots from October-January. These comfy, chic boots can be worn over jeans and are great during the cold rainy/snowy months at keeping your feet warm and dry.

Fringe Stiletto Boots: One word…… Fierce!

Stylish Slip- Ons: I love grey for Fall, as well as texture. These textured slip- ons are the perfect statement sneaker for Fall.
