Tribal Print Dress

Most days, I am not a print person.  I usually gravitate toward solids, but when I saw this dress I knew it had to be mine.  Initially, it was the print that caught my eye, but the asymmetrical hemline sealed the deal.  Plus, I had the perfect grey clutch to go with it!  Any time I put on a dress that shows a lot of leg, I like to make sure the top is on the modest side (and vice versa).  To add a pop of color, I threw on my Nine West red heels.  This would be the perfect outfit for a late summer date night or girls night out!

Look of the Week

One of my all time favorite color combos is navy and white. It’s just so classic and preppy, and pairs great with camel colored leather.  I feel like this would be the perfect outfit for a casual lunch out by the ocean watching the sailboats go by.  I am seriously craving a New England vacation!  Links to everything below.

Look of the Week

I’m coming at you guys with some color this week. Out of the norm for me, but how FUN is this dress? Just looking at it makes me happy! I paired it with minimal accessories, because with this print you don’t need a lot of extras. As always, links to everything below! 

July Favorites!

Can you believe July is over? Seriously, this summer is flying by! As much as I love summer, I am SO looking forward to cooler weather. And football. And cute boots.
I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite and most used products from this past month. Some of these were brand new to me, others were old faves that I reintroduced into my daily routine. I love rediscovering products that I haven’t used in years, and wondering why I ever stopped using them in the first place!
LC by Lauren Conrad Necklace – This is just so pretty, and it really goes with almost everything! I have been wearing it with dresses, t-shirts, you name it. I always get compliments on it every time I wear it! (linked to similar)

Kate Spade Bow Earrings – I found these beauties at Nordstrom Rack and haven’t wanted to take them off since. I just feel so fancy when I wear them, even though they were super affordable. There’s just something about Kate Spade bows that make me one happy girl! (linked to similar)

Nexxus Pro-Mend Split End Binding Crème – I used to use this religiously after washing my hair and just got out of the habit over the past year. I’m so glad I started using it again! It smells amazing, and my hair just looks and feels so much better.

Loreal Nail Polish in “Crazy for Chic” – Loving this color for mid-summer…and Loreal nail polishes are quite possibly my favorite. The formula is excellent, but I think they changed up their brushes a bit. The brush with this one doesn’t seem as thick as they usually are. Either way, I still love it!

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser – I know everyone has been raving about this for quite some time, but it truly is my holy grail under eye concealer! It just brightens everything up and makes me look more awake. I even dab a little on my chin and between my eyebrows to lighten up those areas.

Ralph Lauren “Ralph” Perfume – This might be my all time favorite fragrance, and it is perfect for summer. It has a sweet, floral scent and is super long wearing. I have a hard time finding perfumes that last, and this one seriously lasts all day!

Milani Gel Powder Eye Shadow in “Bella Taupe” – I have been using this underneath my lower lash line and I am loving it! The term “gel powder” confused me a bit when I bought it, but it does sort of glide on like a gel even though it is technically a powder.

Benefit Benebalm – Some days I just don’t want to mess with lip liner and lipstick, so I love having this tinted lip balm to just quickly swipe on and go. It has just a hint of color to give my lips some life, and it is super moisturizing!

NYX Wonder Pencil – This really is a “wonder pencil”. I generally use it on the inner corners of my eyes, but it is also a great concealer and reverse lip liner.

It Cosmetics Hello Lashes Extensions Mascara – I am a mascara fiend, so of course I love trying every new mascara I can get my hands on. This one has proved to be super lengthening, and the brush (with rubber bristles) is designed in a way to get coverage on those hard to reach lashes near the inner corner.

Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend. Let me know what your favorite products were this past month!
