Wedding Jumpsuit OOTD

This is an outfit I wore for a wedding. This is a jumpsuit from H&M that I got on sale for $25.00. This is a length I’ve never worn before, and the ruffle top is very bold, so I was hesitant to wear something like this, but it definitely stood out in a sea of dresses.

I used to be so worried about taking risks with fashion and “standing out too much” but if you love what you’re wearing and own your look, then rock your outfit with confidence. I’ve learned over the years that if you act unphased by people’s opinions, that you can truly be yourself.

Summer Steals & Daisy Detailing

Here’s a summery shirt I wore the other day. It’s a simple tie button up with a polka dot and daisy print, and it was only $7 from H&M. I’m really loving these lightweight button up tops for the summer, especially the shorts sleeves cuffed blouses I’ve been seeing everywhere. You can wear them casually with ripped denim shorts or dress it up with a pair of low rise trousers.

June Favorites 2016

For the month of June, I wanted to make a favorites for some of the beauty products that I’ve been using. I found the links for almost everything if you’re interested in any of the products.

Victoria Secret has some amazing perfumes, but sometimes they are a bit expensive. This scent is the perfect blend of floral, but not too sweet. It’s a lasting scent, but it’s also light too. I’m loving this perfume and recommend it to anyone. I got it in stores for $11.35, but online it is a couple dollars more.

I use this all the time, and the lemon one is probably my favorite. If you’re not huge on lipstick or don’t want the stickiness that comes from lip gloss, this is a great alternative. Your lips still get a nice glossy sheen without the sometimes thick mounds of lip gloss.

Bath & BodyWorks recently had a huge sale, where body mists and body creams were $3-$4 and I couldn’t help but pick up a few things. I’m not huge on body mists because they don’t last as long as perfumes, but I really loved this peach bellini scent. It’s great for the summertime.

I also bought this ultra shea body cream because I sampled a bit in the store and it left my skin feeling soft and smelling amazing. If I wasn’t going to wear perfume, I’d definitely pair the body cream with the body mist for a more lasting scent.

So I picked this up in London, and it was a last minute buy in one of the local shops nearby. It was $5, and I liked a majority of the palettes given. When I actually used it, I realized that this was perfect for blending. Because I have darker skin, sometimes the amount of browns and beiges can be limited, which is a bit frustrating. This palette had a great range of browns and even gave some nice navys and purples if I were to use it at night.

This Italian Citrus Sun scent is also very light. It’s a nice almost grassy smell and the citrus smell balances out the rest of the mist. This is one I’d use if I were running errands or just going to class because it’s a nice refreshing scent for more casual days. The prices went up slightly, but I still think they’re worth trying out.

I am in love with this shampoo. I think I’ve tried every shampoo brand there is, and I can’t believe how well Pantene works for my hair. My hair is curly, course and very thick, so finding the right shampoo has been a challenge. I also use a lot of heat on my hair, and this shampoo works so well on my ends so they don’t look fried. The frizz factor was also a concern of mine, but it ended up making my hair less frizzy and dry. I’ve tried many expensive products too thinking it would help my hair, but this one leaves my hair feeling very healthy.

Hope you enjoyed this post! 🙂

 

 

 

The Bachelorette’s Fashion Profiles

This week, we don’t get an episode of The Bachelorette, but instead, I thought I’d do a fun post about the past Bachelorette’s style. I love how distinct The Bachelorette’s styles have been. They each have their trademark. Here’s a guide to their style!

If you like Kaitlyn’s style…

kaitlyn

I had a lot of fun making Kaitlyn’s profile. She has a youthful, fun-spirited style and it really shines through both on the show and through social media. I picked out a lot of casual sweaters and tees because she has a tomboy vibe. She does have a modern twist to her style though by wearing bomber jackets and leather jackets. For dresses, she’ll wear bodycon dresses and I thought the little button down tied to the waist added some edge.

 

If you like Ali’s style…..Ali

Ali’s style is very girl next door. I gave her some brighter pieces because I constantly see her wearing colors and prints on her Instagram. I also added some bobo pieces with the fringe and tassels. Mostly, I wanted to focus on color for Ali’s style. She used to have a very simple style, but it had definitely transformed into a more girly vibe.

If you like Desiree’s style….

desiree

I love that Desiree has a much different style than past leading ladies. The mom-to-be has a sweeter style and I notice she wears a lot of lace and fit and flares when it comes to dresses. I also added some edgier pieces like a leather jacket because she does balance out romantic pieces.

If you like Andi’s style….

andi

Andi had a very classic feel to her pieces when she was The Bachelorette. I gave her a more modern blazer with the cut and color. I also gave some preppy prints such as gingham and polka dots. She also had a very casual style so I added some simple black jeans and the chambray dress.

Finally, if you like Jojo’s style….

jojo

Jojo has a very summery fun style. The long sleeved romper seemed very Jojo because she doesn’t shy away from color and her clothes are very whimsical. The clutches seemed very bold and fun too. I also did an off the shoulder dress and a strappy crop top because she does have a lot of hot trends in her wardrobe.

To make these collages, I was able to use Polyvore.com. It’s an awesome website and it’s free so I definitely recommend it!

I don’t claim to be some sort of expert on their styles, but I thought these were good representations of their fashion sense. I hope you enjoyed this post.

Spring/Summer College Outfits

I was very busy in college with classes and finals, so I barely had time to share my outfits from school. Here is a compilation of some of my favorite looks from the school year that I managed to find on my phone.

Forever 21 Romper: $12.99: I loved this romper because it was super comfortable to wear out, and then it was really cute during the day to wear with a cardigan and converse sneakers.

Rue 21 Sweatshirt: $5.00 Forever 21 Leggings: $3.99: I loved how casual this look was. The sweatshirt was perfect for class and it looks a little bit more put together with leggings and converse.

Black Knitted Crop Top: $8.99: I loved this crop top  because of the high neckline and the fit. It pairs well with high-waisted jeans because it isn’t too cropped to the point that my stomach was too exposed.

Lizard Printed Blouse from H&M: $12.99 Black Trouser Leggings from H&M: $9.99: This was one of my favorite buys from the spring. The reptile printed blouse is fun and quirky. The pastel and neutral colors also gave the look a more spring vibe.
