When I came across this jumpsuit at Urban Outfitters a few weeks ago, I had to have it! As if neutral prints don’t scream my name loud enough, the fact that this was a jumpsuit too sure got me! I can say I have worn this outfit about twice now-and love it. It’s super cute and perfect for date night, but add some flats and a denim jacket and this one piece would be perfect for the beach too.
And can we talk about these shoes? I picked these up at Nordstroms during my birthday week as a present to myself. I have been looking for the perfect pair of brown heels for quite some time now..and these for sure stole the show. Surprisingly enough, they’re actually really comfy! Although I wasn’t able to find the exact pair online, I linked some similars below!
Summer is already in full swing here in Texas (totally wish I was joking), like it’s been so hot ya’ll! This jumpsuit won’t be worn for long. Regardless, it’s a must have and for sure something to check out while you can! Did I mention its’s under $80 too?! #Yourewelcome
I, for one, am all about balance! Hence, why I love nothing more than wearing shorts and long sleeves. There’s something about a comfy top & short shorts that’s just so cozy! With it clearly heating up in Houston (it’s already really hot ya’ll), this outfit clearly won’t work for me anymore. Besides that, I will still be wearing these shorts all summer long as they’re one of my favorite pair.
Camo is a “neutral” in my head- as you can add color for a statement or pair it with another neutral color for a more laid back look. I kept my look neutral (as usual) and made it even more laid back with my converse! This outfit is great for running errands without looking like you rolled out of bed. I linked some more camo options below..because #whynot.
Oh..& about my “goal” of not being as neutral this year and adding more color to my wardrobe= totally not working. Most days I am a grey/beige wearing type of gal & I’m totally okay with that! I love my neutrals and will always be a fan..just for an update (HA!).
Okay, so I will be the first to admit that I’m not a make-up guru! I stick to what I know & buy the same products over and over. I find something that I love (shoutout to Sephora!) and rack up and don’t change products until I have to. Like, until it’s discontinued or something. For example- I wore the same Smashbox lipstick for three years until it was just discontinued recently this year (sad face!). I was beyond annoyed that my fav was gone, so of course I went on Amazon & racked up, LOL. The one thing I can say I do know about makeup though is that bronzer is life (especially for my #Melaningals).
I love bronzer & never leave the house without it! Due to this, I will say that I have tried a good amount of them & know which one’s work. You might catch me (actually mostly often) with no eye make-up on, but I #Promise you my bronzer will be on fleek! I’ve rounded up my 5 top bronzers that I live by below. Most are pretty decently priced, because like I said, I run through this stuff like water!
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in “Topez”
Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit
Too Faced “Sun Bunny” Natural Bronzer
Tom Ford The Ultimate Bronzer in “Shimmer” Finish
Besides the fact that Kylie Jenner herself wears Becca, this bronzer is my hands down #1 (favorite!)! It lasts all day and is great for going bare face. Plus, its golden tone is great for brown skin tones. My second is obviously not your typical bronzer, but is a palette instead. As previously stated, I’m not a makeup gal so palettes typically are not my thing. This Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit though, is a must have during summer time! You can mix tones and make the PERFECT highlight, underlight, whatever light you want to. Too Faced in Sun Bunny comes in third only because I found Becca so don’s use this one as often anymore, but I used to live by this one too! Fourth is Tom Ford Ultimate Bronzer, only because of the price. If I used this on a daily basis as much as I used my others- I would be broke.com. My last is Too Faced in Beach Bunny only because Sun Bunny is better.
Needless to say, all the ones above are fab & are must trys! Hope you enjoy! P.S- Deets on the white fit can be found here && my striped blue top here!
Happy Wednesday! This weeks weekly inspiration comes from Matthew 5:16-
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.”
I’ve always been amused by babies and how quickly they learn! Babies go from crawling to walking in the blink of an eye. Toddlers often mock their parents, repeating both words and actions that they see repeatedly. It has even been said that it’ easier to teach a young child multiple languages than an adult. Whether this is true or not, the fact remains the same that people are easily influenced. This is why it’s always so important to make sure you are trying your best to be a good example to others, or, as my mom would say, “Let your light shine bright”.
Matthew 5:16 reminds us that even when we are not solely paying attention to our own actions, someone always is. Most people’s admirers are from afar- watching and hoping to learn from others in silence. This verse reminds us to try a little harder on a regular basis to be an example of how much God loves each and every one of us! This week, my challenge for you is to try to be more of an example to your peers. This could be done by offering a little more help to a coworker at work, or even calling an old friend just to see how their doing. Whatever it is, just remember that no good deed never goes unnoticed.
P.S.- Deets about the outfit above can be found here!
Off-the-Shoulder tops are an old trend, but i’m still not over yet! Typically I’m not a trend follower, but I’m currently obsessed with anything OTS, from dresses to shirts and anything in between. This one I’m a fan of for many reasons- as if the price wasn’t enough- it bright colors and minimal floral detail just added to the love. Like I’m totes a fan of this top and you’ll never guess where it’s from!
That’s right ya’ll- it’f from Old Navy! I have honestly not stopped at this store in years and just happened to stop in before my trip a few weeks ago. I actually found a few things and they were all great deals too. I was pleasantly surprised and told myself that I would stop by more frequently. Not sure if this will actually happen- but hey, we will see! Back to my OTS obsession, I love this trend for many reasons. Not only does this type of neckline look great on many body types, but it also is perfect for many occasions. From lunch with the gals to even date night- these types of tops are the perfect way to dress up a pair of your favorite denim! Linking some more of my fave below (most under $50!) because like i said, the obsession is real! #Yourewelcome
