Spring Staple: Button Down Top

Happy Friday Friends!!! 

I am taking it easy this morning and recovering from a fun blogger event last night. I had a blast at the Buddy Love social in Dallas with some of my local blogging friends. It was great to get out and meet some other local influencers in the area and get to do some fun shopping!

On to today’s post….

What is the one essential wardrobe piece in every girl’s closet? … The button down shirt.  I wanted to share one of my favorite tops that it definitely a closet staple of mine. It is the perfect top to go from day to night.

 Every season, designers reinvent this essential workplace staple and this season we get some pretty cool button downs that are NOT just made for the office. Oh and stripes are hot this spring so sometimes you can even get 2 for 1! The striped button-down is a classic closet staple and the perfect canvas for a variety of truly chic looks. From office appropriate with a pencil skirt to tied up with a maxi or worn with a bit of menswear flair (not to mention black tie, metallics, and head-to-toe white!), the possibilities are endless.

 

I wanted to stick with the casual look and pair it with my favorite cutoffs. These sandals are from TJ Maxx and super comfy. I recently found this bucket bag at Charming Charlie and it just sold out! (Sad face)…. I linked a similar one that goes great with any outfit!

 

Hope y’all have a fabulous weekend!

Cinco De Mayo Inspo

So one of my favorite holidays is coming up and I am already full of excitement!!! I know that for some of you ladies, this is one of the merriest and most festive occasions for the year so it’s important that you celebrate this day and have fun. Aside from that, it’s important that you look good while you’re at it, too! Today, I want to share some festive Cinco de Mayo outfit ideas that might help you dress the part.

Y’all, I am dying over ALL of these pieces! I literally have every single one in my “virtual cart” and want to hit CHECKOUT as soon as possible! The pom pom and tassel trend just gives me life! I will be celebrating Cinco De Mayo with some margaritas and of course sporting something festive. Any excuse to eat tacos and wear bright colors is a win in my book! I will also be sharing some recent finds I found over the weekend that I am obsessing over on Instagram!

Paint Brush Maxi – BuddyLove

Happy Monday Friends!! 

I hope y’all had a fabulous weekend! We had some crazy weather in Dallas… Saturday morning we woke up to 50 degree weather from storms the night before. All of Ridge’s tee ball games were cancelled so we spent the day shopping #momwin 🙂

Yesterday was gorgeous so we had some bbq time with the neighborhood friends and kids. Pretty sure I didn’t clean an inch of the house all weekend… #oops!

Well I’ve been really excited to share today’s look with you, because I have a new brand to love- Buddy Love to be exact!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wanted to share a behind the scenes / candid shot of how our photoshoots usually go…. Photobombed by the toddler!!! #reallifeblogmom

Maxi Dress // Hat   , Similar ) // Sandals // Sunglasses // Necklace

Yes, this is what it looks like when your husband takes your pictures and your child wants to be in one…. or just participate in the bluebonnet field!! I cant complain because if thats what keeps him busy and makes him happy, I totally support it!

This maxi dress just totally gives me life! I wore this for Easter weekend and everyone just loved it. The colors, the print, the fit… 100%!!! It is literally the perfect dress for summer. I could probably live in it for any occasion! I paired it with my favorite sandals and super fun pom pom hat.

I will be attending a fun event this week that is hosted by Buddy Love in Dallas. I cant wait to share all the fun with all of you and show you some new and exciting pieces coming out for summer! Stay tuned!

Have an awesome week friends!

Beauty Favorites Lately

I am a little behind on the beauty department shares. I have been loving so many things but these are a few of my favorites!!! 🙂

 

KAT VON D Lock-IT Foundation: When I first used this product, it applied really thick and blotchy. Then I went back to using my usual foundation and noticed it wasnt lasting as long as this one did. I tried using it again and actually adding a tiny bit of water to help make it easier to apply. It totally helped and this stuff is amazing!

TARTE Make Believe In Yourself Palette: Most of you know I love anything with some sparkle. This stuff has the right amount of color and sparkle and is not overwhelming. It is also a cheek palette and the color lasts all day! Totally worth it!

KENRA Color Balance Purple Shampoo: I used this product daily for one week and had a noticeable change in my hair’s brassiness! I have always had heavy blonde highlights in my hair that turn brassy over time. I’ve tried several other products that I was less than satisfied with but this one definitely works! It smells great and doesn’t leave your hair feeling or looking greasy! I would recommend this to anyone that colors their hair blonde!

HOPE in a Jar Skin Tint: I have used Hope in a Jar for awhile now as my daily moisturizer. When I saw this version I was like “Bye Bye Pale Face”!!! Moisturizer + Bronzer = Amazing! I use this everyday as a primer before my foundation!

St. Tropez Self Tanner Mouse: Speaking of bronzer… this stuff has been my lifesaver for my see-through skin! I worked for a tanning salon for 5 years and would spray tan like every other day. GROSE! These days the spray tan solution are so much better than they used to be. The application and color of this stuff is so natural looking. No streaking or weird spots. Perfect for summer!

 BED HEAD Flat Iron: My CHI finally went out after 10 years! I have no idea how it even lasted that long (or how I never lost it)… I heard so many great things about this one and it definitely does not disappoint. It heats up super fast and I only straighten each strand once! Game changer!

EMJOI Electric Razor: I received this from the company in return for a review and I was a little nervous to try it. I normally dont use electric razors for anything. I used it on my bikini line before we went to Mexico and it was really easy. (Kinda weird but definitely easier than regular shaving) It has 18 blades and doesnt leaves cuts or scratches. 🙂

BITE BEAUTY Lipstick:  I first got this lipstick from Influenster for testing purposes and fell in love. I had nt heard of the brand before but I love the quality so much. It literally lasts all day! The texture and the color are amazing. I love it!

I hope y’all have a fabulous weekend ladies!!!
