How To Wear Crop Tops

Everywhere I look, I see crop tops lately. On the pages of magazines, on the red carpet, at the beach, this trend has proven to be here to stay for the summer months. When done right, a crop top can really make an outfit look fun and trendy. When done wrong, girl you can look like a hot mess. My number one rule when wearing crop tops is make sure it looks tasteful! If you’re going to wear one, don’t wear low rise mini shorts…it just doesn’t work. Below I created two looks using crop tops to use as a…

Make a Statement for Under $60

Image Credit: Bauble Bar As of lately, statement necklaces have been my go-to accessory. Paired with a simple t-shirt, a bold piece can instantly turn a boring look into something edgier or more glamorous. Best part? You don’t have to spend a lot. Many inexpensive stores (Forever 21/H&M) have created their own renditions of statement necklaces. Personally I have been drooling over pieces from Bauble Bar. Their designs are unique, the quality is amazing, and they are priced just right. Where do you buy your statement necklaces? Or are you already over the trend?

Foundation Routine: Simple Everyday Look & A Night Out

My foundation routine changes based on what I’m doing, where I’m going, and the current condition of my skin. If I’m headed to the beach I’m not going to wear a full face of foundation, concealer, and blush. I tweak and switch out products based on my needs, which I think every woman should. I reach for my “simple” routine when I’m running errands, spending the day at home, or simply don’t feel like wearing heavy make-up. These products are perfect for the summer because they are light and natural. After I’m done washing my face and moisturizing, I liberally…

Beauty Wishlist

L’oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder//Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes Mascara//Stila Convertible Color//Benefit Stay Flawless Primer I really wish cosmetic companies would stop creating such innovative, fun products because I somehow feel obligated to purchase them all!  I feel like my beauty wishlist is never ending and will grow as long as new products are on the market. I’m most excited to try Benefit’s Stay Flawless Primer because I’ve heard it has great staying power and helps make your foundation last all day. But I NEED to get my hands on Lancome’s new mascara strictly for it’s amazing packaging. I have a…

Splurge V. Steal: Studded Pumps

{Sole Society; Valentino} For months I have been drooling over the Valentino studded pumps, but nothing in my right mind can rationalize purchasing a pair of shoes for nearly $1,000! Maybe when I’m employed full time, but right now it’s just not the best choice for me. Sorry, Valentino. Luckily, I stumbled upon an inspired pair on Sole Society. They’re extremely similar and equally pretty, with a much smaller price tag! {Sole Society is also known for having great coupon codes.} Would you splurge?
