Fashion Friday (Feeling Fall)

The weather here is so wonky!!  It’s been as high as 90 degrees and down to mid 40s.  I just try to dress cute and accordingly, but I’m usually sweating or cold…#cantwin

We went out for a quick family dinner one night and I threw on some AE jeans, an Apricot Lane tank, some Target nude heels & a necklace my mama made.

If it’s been super warm, I’ll rock some cut-offs, botties & wrap a flannel around my waist.

On a cooler day,  I rocked our new Camo sweatshirt and dressed it up with the Sutton. As for the booties? I actually scooped them up at Walmart, of all places!?

This was my chosen September nail color.  It was called “Rubble” and they said it was an OG Shellac–and wouldn’t last long.   Well I’m sitting here typing this 9/28 and it’s still on.  My nails have grown out, but it’s still stickin!

It was a bit warmer for one weekend so I embraced Summer for as long as I could.

I did sneak out and do a little shopping– I had not shopped at American Eagle in forever! I found a few styles I loved; this top, the flannel (seen in a few photos!) and these jeans.

These pants are SO comfy!

Date nights have been simple…moto jacket and a dress!   I will go with open toe shoes as long as I can!

I also invested in some new leggings, mine were shot!!  I adore this new chambray top from Old Navy as well.

I added the celestial choker & some statement earrings for a little pop of fun.

My bestie’s sister in law has some fabulous leather earrings in her Etsy shop! I saw my girl wearing a pair and had to have some.  I went with Cognac.

In hair news—

I had been going ever 4 weeks and it’s just a HUGE time and financial commitment.  I also was looking for a bit of a change, so I decided to do more of an ‘icy blonde’ with a darker root.  I felt I was a little too gold and brassy, and the roots are horrendous! This way, the goal is to space out my hair appointments longer (6 weeks +) and I am using the purple shampoo on the in between.  So far I am LOVING it!

Arm candy is always a good idea!

I had to snap this “Basic” pic.  My current fave from Starbucks is a Chai Latte with soy, one pump pumpkin.  YUM!

What are you loving fashion wise this fall?!

Fashion (& Beauty) Friday

We made it to the end of the week, whoop!
My crew and I stepped out for lunch and did some running around.  It was the perfect 75 degree day, blue skies, sunny with a slight breeze.  We are cherishing our “family of 4 Fridays” as when school starts up, our eldest will be going all day!

I kept today’s look super simple–Express top, a strappy bralette & cut off shorts.

Stella & Dot Accessories: 

  • Love necklace ($24!)
  • Sparkle Studs ($19)

For makeup, I have been all about Younique lately! {products used below}

  • Palette 1
  • Blush Stunning
  • Brozer sunset
  • Epic Mascara (only 2 coats)
  • Proper (brown) eye liner
  • Tinted Lip Bon Bon: Vanilla Milkshake
  • Lip Pencil in pudent
  • Liquid Lipstick: Sublime

 

For my actual skin care, I’m obsessed with Ever.  I switched from the regular daily moisturizer to the tinted and amazing is an understatement!  I don’t feel like I’m wearing any makeup and yet it gives off a subtle tint/glow.  I wear medium in the Summer.  I do this daily and no longer use my Bare Minerals tinted coverage any more.  For date nights, I use another foundation; I’ll share that separately.

For my book club/wine night, I got to dress up a little more!

Top: Banana Republic

Pants: Express

Bag: LV Neverfull GM

Shoes: Vince Camuto

Earrings: Gita Tassels, Stella & Dot

For makeup, I am loving this fab new lip combo!! (I have a serious lipstick, lipgloss, lip whatever obsession. I am a total lip-junkie and I totally admit it.)

The makeup gurus are swearing by using Prim (which is technically an eye liner) for a lip liner & then go over it will this bomb lip plumper gloss in Shandelle.

You can make it darker, if you apply more liner, but I started lightly for the first go around!

This is also a HUGE favorite of mine! Rose Water  It was on backorder and I was overly excited when it finally came!  It’s a toner and at my last facial, the girl told me I should really be using one twice a day since I do have bigger pores.  Not to mention, I feel super fancy spraying my face with it and it smells SO flipping good!! (Not like fake roses like other cheaper products, which I’ve tried but this is worth every penny!)

The other Friday I rocked my “Self Made” shirt (we still have the little girl version available!), new gold Essential hoops and are new Rhett necklace.  Note my killer selfie skills, (dog bowl, chair placement)

I have been back on the arm party bandwagon again!!

Intention bracelets, Renegade cluster bracelet and the Ansley cuff all S&D of course!

How true is this?!

Have a fabulous weekend friends!

Fashion Friday: Color Pop

TGIF!!

It’s been a fun month celebrating Summer and my 37th birthday.  We love Summer so much and really  make great efforts to get out on as many date nights as possible.  We know all too well that pretty soon the snow will be flying and we’ll be freezing, trying to stay warm cuddled up by the fire!

For now?  We go out on the town!

I wanted to share some of my favorite looks lately.

Stella & Dot’s Fall collection came out and it’s to die for!  The Fall launch has always been my favorite (by far!) and this did not disappoint.

The Pegasus Earrings are just as gorgeous as they seem!  They are not heavy at all.

Lips- Lipsense

Makeup– Younique

Dress- Express

Where are my hoop girls at?!  Big hoops are IN and these are the same material as our hammered wired hoops, so we are talking super lightweight and add that perfect glam.  I’ll quote my girlfriend Elizabeth, she says they are “life changing.”  I would have to agree!  I ordered them in both gold and silver, they are that good.

One of our little nights out I opted for an LBD. This one is from Venus.com (it’s on sale for only $29.99!!)   These shoes are from Guess by Marciano and they’re not that bad!  (Similar here)

For my birthday date night with hubby I played around with our new Color Pop Earrings.  These are SO fun you guys!!  For $69 you get a million looks!! They are so lightweight, genuine leather and I adore the front facing hoop.  We have a similar pair for silver gals too.

I added the celestial choker in gold & the renegade cluster bracelet in gold to finish my look.

Makeup: Younique!—It’s the best.  I’m wearing the lip pencil in pouty and the liquid Stellar.  Blush, bronzer, everything Younique!

I chose a ruby red dress since that’s my birthstone and I know my hubby loves me in red.

I chose to rock the metallic gold long ones because my shoes had gold buckles and I thought they looked pretty with my dress.

See how creative you can get with these earrings?img_7093.jpgimg_7092

I have a feeling you’ll be seeing a lot of stripes with pops of color this Fall.

As a busy mama, I love the small daily essentials like the new LOVE necklace.  Gold or silver and just $24!!

How pretty is the new Mae necklace?  Custom handmade and woven beads.  It took a long time make and it shows!

Our fearless leader Jessica Herrin posted this gem on Instagram the other day.  Her arm party was way bigger than her coffee!

And for the gym run, this amazing Crush it Tote is still one of my favorites!

I have a mystery hostess show running, so some lucky lady will win the rewards from the show!! You can also score any of these gems half off when you spend $50.
