Crown and Ivy for Spring

Hey Friends! Hope y’all had a fabulous weekend!

We had some pretty amazing weather so we spent lots of time outside. I am trying to get this pale body ready for Mexico so I spent a little “extra” time outside soaking up the Texas sun. I need to do this everyday to get any good color 🙂

I recently had the opportunity to work with Belk and one of their popular brands Crown and Ivy! They incorporates a modern twist on the classic southern styles. What I LOVE about the line is it is FULL of versatile pieces, lady like dresses, and even some bold patterns. The fabrics are gorgeous, they’re all clearly well made, and they really epitomize modern southern style. I love wearing a great pair of shorts in the summer. Especially scalloped shorts with an amazing print. Stripes are always a win in my book and these red striped shorts are no exception. The fabric is so lightweight and comfortable. I’m obsessed with the scalloped detail. I paired it with my favorite chambray top and my go-to converse sneakers. It was the perfect outfit for a day of shopping!

The next look features the cutest and most comfy eyelet tank. Its the perfect top for shorts or bright colored jeans! And did I mention its super comfy!! I paired it with my favorite dark rinse denim shorts and a lightweight cardigan that has been on repeat the last couple of weeks!

Festival Vibes

Y’all….

I think I have officially lost my mind this week!! Holy. Work. Overload!

Luckily, today’s Friday and I’m making myself work from home so I can actually sit down and answer all 300 (unopened) emails since Monday! Don’t get me wrong, I love my job but this girl needs a vaca!!

Enough about that… Today’s post is getting me excited for summer!!

Well, I don’t know if it is because of festival season, but I’m really into band tees these days #obsessed. And would y’all believe it if I told you this one is actually a boy’s hoodie… Shoutout to Target!! 🙂

Band Tee

The music band T-shirt trend was massive in the 90’s, it is absolutely coming back in the game. I actually have an over-sized Pink Floyd t-shirt I sleep in sometimes. They are just so comfy and make me feel cooler about myself wearing them 🙂

On one of my many Target shopping trips, I was browsing the kids section (probably my favorite section aka: “let me borrow your kid” Insta-Stories) this hoodie caught my eye! I saw this boys XL and thought about it for Ridge and then I totally wanted one for myself! Its super comfy and more sporty than anything. I have gone for a couple runs in it and wore it with leggings. My favorite is pairing it with these moto jeans that give it an edgy vibe. I pretty much live in these converse on the weekends running around town or being the chauffeur for Ridge! I brought it together with this black crossbody I found at Marshalls! Its goes with any outfit!

 

Do you have any throwback band tees?

 

I hope yall have a fabulous, relaxing weekend!!

Favorite Beauty Products – February

 

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

I have just recently branched out from my usual lipsticks and wanted to try the Urban Decay lip products. Y’all… they are good!!! I was so surprised at how highly pigmented the lipsticks are and the colou pay off. And y’all know I love my purple lippies and this one does not dissapoint! 

L’Oreal Voluminous Super Star

ONE of my new favorite mascaras! I love the primer end of this one. If you build it up- your eyelashes will be SOOO long and so beautiful.

e.l.f. Blush Palette in Light

I use the bottom right color most often, but I will also use the two colors on the left when I feel like changing things up. I’ve also used the top right color to set my under eye highlight in the past. FUN FACT: Those little squares pop out, so if you wanted to buy the palatte in dark and light, you could move them around to mix and match your favorite colors into one pallet.

Clarins Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate

Heaven in a bottle!!! I absolutely love this product.. This is the number one selling Clarins products…on both sides of the pond! It has also helped with my pores 🙂

Moroccain Oil Hair Treatment

I’m a Moroccanoil fan! All of their products have been great for me. I use this on damp hair before blow drying and it helps smooth and add shine. I also use it to tame flyaways and frizz. I am happy with this product overall. The only downside is that especially if you use too much, it can leave the hair looking a little greasy after a long day.

TARTE Double-Ended Foundation Brush

This brush is a must have for anyone who likes an easy full coverage brush. The application is smooth and the finish is unbelievable! I’ve been stuck on the beauty blender for a while but this brush has taken its spot and then some for me! Also, I’ve been using it for a few months now and haven’t had any issues with the brush hairs falling out at all

The Wet Brush

The Wet Brush* is my go to for brushing my hair, whether it’s dry or wet. It’s a godsend. I remember using this as a little girl for dance competitions… GAME CHANGER!! No more tears during every outfit change! And now I re-introduced it to myself and I am so glad I did!

Have you tried any of these? What are some of you recent favorites?

Happy Monday Friends!!! 

Hope you had a fabulous weekend! We were busy with lots of family time! My alumni, Cincinnati Bearcats, played SMU yesterday and it was such a great game!! I dont really have a voice today from screaming and being sick… My Bearcats lost but it was def a fight! And what about the Grammys? I was NOT impressed at all this year… Except for Gaga & Metallica! Epic!! 🙂

Today, I am sharing a transitional look for Spring and it could also be an outfit idea for Valentines Day!  (Please excuse my pale legs!!!!) Since last November, I have not styled shorts in a blog post, so when the weather rose to 80 degrees this weekend I decided it was the perfect time. I found these amazing leather shorts last summer at TJMaxx and actually wore them to the TSwift concert! They are so comfy and the color is more of a dark red. Going for a casual look with a touch of sophistication, I paired these leather shorts with this amazing cream colored blazer that is just the right length for shorts and pants! I wanted to keep it a little edgy why not add some fringe! These stiletto fringe booties have been my go-to for so many outfits!

Do you have any exciting Valentines Day plans tomorrow? We are probably keeping it low key and will go to dinner… with out toddler! #romantic 🙂
