Navy Blue + White





Version 3

I know that I’m not alone when I say I love blue & white paired together, especially navy blue. It’s such a crisp, yet classic summer outfit.  This blouse is so pretty, and even better in person. The peplum is a go-to favorite of mine, and the neckline is really flattering for any body type. I was a year round swimmer for many years growing up (fun fact, I know), so my shoulders are broader than most; therefore, I’m always on the lookout for tops that accentuate my “swimmer” shoulders. This one is another cute option as well.
And, these mules are so mom-friendly, yet still really, really fun! I’m pretty sure I bought these just because of the poms poms! They look great with white jeans and shorts, too. Sadly, mine are sold out, but these are just as chic. I actually had a hard time deciding between the two!

Loft Cropped Pants (sadly sold out, similar style) /  English Factory Emma Blouse / Kate Spade handbag (old, but similar style)/ J. Crew mules (sadly sold out! I hope they restock them soon. These are a really fun print, too!) / Kate Spade Watch / Kate Spade Heart of Gold bracelet / Loft Pearl Earrings / Loft Sunglasses (old, but similar style)

Have a happy day!

Happy Favorites Lately

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

I thought I would share some of what I would call “happy favorites” of mine as of late.
I love hearing what other bloggers are loving lately, and it’s always best to hear it from real people, not just believing the marketing. Believe me, I worked in marketing for 9 years, and I LOVE our industry, but real customers sharing their “tried and true” favorites out in the world, is so much better. I am becoming a big believer in reading reviews, especially when it comes to sizing, which in the past, I never used to take the extra time to do. Crazy to think I didn’t. Better late than never, right?

J Brand Skinny Jeans

These jeans ROCK; however, prepare yourself, the price might bring your jaw to the floor. Now, if you can get past the pain of pressing purchase, you will thank me. I literally want to wear them everyday. Literally. I’ve always been very loyal to Citizen jeans, but J Brand fits so perfectly, and they never stretch out. I love the length (I’m 5/10). If they weren’t so expensive I would own 20 pairs. I think I’m going to need a jean budget now…

Living Proof Shampoo & Conditioner (Full)

Living Proof Shampoo & Conditioner
Ok, I promise I have some cheap favorites coming up for you in this post. This one is again, a bit on the expensive side; however, so worth it. I buy it through amazon with prime (thank goodness!). I typically wash my hair every 2 days (Mom life!), so by the second day, my hair is always limp, and it drives me crazy. (It’s apparently a short drive, as my Dad says! Ha!) I blow dry and straighten my hair after I wash it, and with this shampoo/conditioner it gives me the fullness/body I want, even after using my straightener. It smells so good too! Trust me, it will be a good investment.

english Factory
This brand is so chic. The blouse above was my first purchase of many, and I’m in love. The fit it TTS, and you just can’t beat the design/prices. Things get sold out quickly, so if you see something you like, there’s a good chance, it will be sold out next time to you go to the site. I would order it fast my friends. I can’t say enough good things about this brand!

Baby Lips
Baby Lips
$2.79! Finally, something really good and inexpensive! I do not wear lipstick. I have tried it, and yuck. I am a lip gloss girl, and this adds the perfect amount of moisture before applying my lip gloss. It’s also great to wear alone as well. I have to thank Bradley for this one, she’s one of my all time favorite bloggers. Her style is impeccable. If you haven’t read her blog before, I promise it will become one added to your favorites!

Trader Joe’s Macarons

These are such a great, inexpensive Spring/Summer dessert.
We eat them year round they’re so good.

 Have a happy evening!
