Good morning!

This week’s outfit of the week is super simple. I’m wearing my favorite t-shirt dress from Forever 21 paired with espadrilles from Steve Madden. I wear this dress at least once a week so I really need to invest in one of every color! And these shoes are the perfect pair of slip-ons that are neutral enough to go with a lot. It looks like I put in effort, but that’s what I love about t-shirt dresses…

 

 

I’m having a hard time with finding unique locations for my outfit of the week… Let me know if y’all  have any creative ideas!

Happy Friday!

Todays’s outfit of the week is the closest I am going to get to wearing nothing, which is unfortunately, socially unacceptable. It’s been so hot lately I am unmotivated to look cute because I just end up melting.

I got these shorts at H&M a few weeks ago & I was so excited to find them because I’ve been looking for quality shorts for so long. I really dislike shorts & pants shopping because it’s so hard to find pants that fit my legs & my hips. The struggle is real.

Also, I’m wearing the same shoes from last week because they are super cute & comfy. Check out my last post for deets…

P.S. Have a happy 4th!!

These shorts are super comfy & actually fit! I got the top from a friend a few years ago, but its sheer lace & super cool for hot days. And of course, I’m wearing my favorite shoes ever. (I have a lot of fav shoes if you couldn’t already tell…) My choker is from the LC Lauren Conrad collection.

Happy Friday!

Today’s outfit of the week is pretty simple: a black romper, sun hat & flip flops. Put a bunch of basic items together, to create a chic, minimalistic look.

This was one of the few times I wasn’t wearing a bathing suit over the weekend, so I thought I should capture it! I got the shoes at Charming Charlie & I always get a lot of compliments whenever I wear them (btw, they’ve having a semi-annual sale right now). I’m not sure what they’re called though… Strappy sandals? Band flip flops? Idk, but they’re cute & that’s all that matters! I’ll link similar items below so you can snag yourself a pair! (& they’re both under $20)

I was waiting patiently for my continental breakfast in this pic, btw…

Top 5 Summer Beauty Essentials

I love summer for so many reasons, but one of my favorite parts of the season is the low-key look that is always in style. A dark tan, mascara, some highlight & lip color & you’re set. Below, I’ve outlined the essentials I use to create the perfect, laid back look that we all want this time of year.

The first product I swear by is Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer. It’s a self tanner that can be applied straight out of the shower & takes the place of your regular body lotion. It creates a gradual tan that doesn’t smell & leave any orange residue or streaks. I did some research on self tanners because I’ve been reading a lot about skin cancer & how tanning increases the risk, so I decided to try the more artificial way of adding color!

My second favorite product is a Charcoal & Black Sugar face mask. It feels so cool on my face & exfoliates my skin as I apply it. It’s super easy to take on & off & leaves the skin feeling so soft. A must try for your next spa night!

Another product I’ve been using for awhile now, but continue to love, is the Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist. It comes in a cute glass bottle & takes only a few sprits to refresh all day makeup & hydrate. I’m all about hydrating from the inside & out!

For summer makeup I don’t like applying a full face unless I’m going out because I usually end up just sweating off what I just put on! I’ll usually start with sunscreen & primer & then just add a bit of highlight to the cheek bones. I use the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector  because it has just enough subtle shimmer to not look too glam, but add a glow. I tend to use the lighter colors so the color looks more natural.

The last product I can’t live without is Burts Bees Lip Shimmer. It adds a tint of color, but isn’t overwhelming like most lipsticks. I apply it over regular chapstick & then again throughout the day. There are so many color options & I usually stick to neutrals, but feel free to experiment!

Those are my beauty staples for this season & all year around as well! The Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer is great for adding some color in the dead of winter & the Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mask is perfect for using mid-day to freshen up makeup. I’ve linked all the products below:
