A tropical tan is the perfect accessory to any outfit. I recently took a trip to the beautiful Harbour Island, Bahamas, where these beachy outfits left me feeling pretty in paradise. Enjoy (& don’t forget your sunscreen!)

This first outfit was definitely one of my go-to beach looks. My tunic style cover up is super light weight and kept me cool in the Bahamian sun. I purchased mine from a local boutique, however you should be able to find similar ones like it at J.Crew. I paired my tropical tunic with my favorite white Birkenstocks which aren’t only comfy and durable, but they compliment a tan perfectly! The sunnies I’m sporting here are exact dupes to the Dior “So Real” Shades (except for the fact that they’re about $500 cheaper!) and I purchased them on Amazon. This outfit encompasses both comfy and cute aspects which are crucial to any vacation look!

Whether I was grabbing lunch with a view or lounging on the pink sand beaches, this was another one of my favorite outfits from the trip. This navy and lime coverup is perfect for throwing over your swimsuit, instantly creating a beachy look. I paired my tunic with a simple pair of Tkees and I was ready for any adventure awaiting me on the island!

This fun jumpsuit was one of my dressier outfits on my vacation yet it definitely still gave off a beachy and relaxed vibe. I purchased mine from a small online store, Boho Outfitters but you can find similar ones like it at Urban or Nordstom. I adore the detailing on this piece and can’t wait to incorporate it into more outfits this summer. I paired my jumpsuit with my rose gold pair of Palm Beach Sandals, dressing up the look a bit yet not straying from comfort.

This final look is a classic white maxi dress that I couldn’t resist bringing on my trip. I purchased mine from Target but you can find tons of variations with this simple design. Whether you want to dress it up with a pair of wedges or wear it barefoot to the beach, this piece is so versatile and beautiful- not to mention it will make you feel like a goddess!

Concert OOTN | Denim & Dancing

Beauty, DIY, Fashion, Hauls, Lifestyle, Recipes, Reviews, Trends, Uncategorized

Urban fashion and concert style alike, both incorporate fun and edgy aspects. When I attended a Marina and the Diamonds concert in New York City last week, these were the words I kept in mind upon searching throughout my wardrobe for the perfect outfit of the night. Here you will find the details of my look from an awesome evening in the city… Enjoy!

My OOTN

Jacket- Urban Outfitters 

I love pairing denim with various looks to make them more casual yet keep them chic. On this rainy night in particular I was definitely glad I layered for it made waiting outside for Marina’s (!!!) performance a lot more enjoyable! While inside the venue, I tied the jacket around my waist and it looked just as cute. If you haven’t already invested in a denim jacket I would highly recommend purchasing one for they are super versatile yet practical!

Top- H&M

This classic black and white striped top is another super versatile item in my wardrobe. This shirt is very simplistic yet I love the fun effect that the higher neckline gives as it peeks over the denim.

Skort- Free People

I am so, so excited about this new piece! A pleather, envelope skort seems a bit intimidating upon first glance however I love the way that it can be dressed up or down. The fact that this is a skort instead of a skirt is also super exciting (got to love those built in shorts!) I am also obsessed with the statement zipper in the front. I can’t wait to experiment with incorporating this piece into various looks (Be sure to like this post if you want me to do a skort lookbook!!)

Black Tights 

I included sheer black tights under my skort for an edgier look (and for warmth!) You can basically find these anywhere- I believe mine are from Target.

Bag- Kate Spade 

My bright red bag added a pop of color to my look and served as a statement piece. This was the perfect size for the concert necessities and didn’t get in my way while I was dancing. If you were going for a dressier look, the cross body strap is detachable and the purse can be used as a clutch!

(Shoutout to my sister for letting me “borrow”- aka steal this forever from her!!!)

Sneakers- Sk8 Hi Slim Vans

As for shoes, I went with my black and white high top Vans. These were perfect for walking around the city and dancing all night. If you are going to a concert- especially in a city venue that’s entirely standing, I would definitely recommend going with more comfortable footwear. If you were looking to dress up a look like this, black booties would be the perfect addition.

Makeup MUST-HAVES | My Favorite Products!!

Beauty, DIY, Fashion, Hauls, Lifestyle, Recipes, Reviews, Trends

Guess who’s back from her blogging hiatus?! THIS GIRL! I took some time off from my regular posting schedule but I am back and better than ever. Stay tuned for some fall inspired fashion content coming your way soon! Today I have an exciting post… my absolute MUST-HAVE makeup products! Here you will find my favorites from eyeshadows to lipgloss and everything in between! Enjoy!

Eye Makeup:

I just love experimenting with new eye shadow looks to make my eyes pop. Lately I have been obsessed with the Naked Basics and Naked 3 palettes from Urban Decay.

The Naked Basics palette has the perfect amount of neutral, matte tones that can be worn basically anywhere! My favorite shade would definitely have to be “Venus” because the shimmery champagne color looks gorgeous on the brow bone.

The Naked 3 palette is definitely the most pink/warmly under-toned group of eyeshadows compared to its’ “sister palettes” (the Naked 1 & 2). With a huge range of shades from matte, blush tones to shimmery, smokey violets I absolutely adore blending new combinations. I turn to this palette every time I go out and never get bored of the looks it can create!

Speaking of eyes, mascara is probably my favorite part of applying makeup. Voluminous lashes can seriously transform your entire look. I am always on the hunt for new mascaras (comment your favorite below!!) but as of now I have been layering Maybelline’s, The Falsies (Volume express) and Great Lash Real Impact. The shapes of the applicators are different so the combination of both products not only gives me length, but volume too!

Face Makeup 

Now onto the face! As a fair-skinned girl who doesn’t sleep as much as she should, I definitely struggle with under eye circles (Don’t we all!). That’s why I adore the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind (It sounds a little scary, I know) Dark Circle Eraser. I don’t necessarily use it for the “age rewind” effects, however this acts as the perfect highlighter/concealer. Blendable and light weight on the skin, I would definitely recommend this product!

To avoid pesky shine on the skin, I always set my face with the Revlon Nearly Naked powder. This does an awesome job of locking in my concealer and keeping my skin matte without looking cakey.

To add a little color into my face I love contouring with Rimmel London’s Natural Bronzer. This product does an awesome job of adding warmth to a look without creating harsh streaks or lines.

In addition to bronzer I love adding blush and highlighter with products from the Benefit Feelin’ Dandy set. I wrote a whole post on this cheek and lip combo so be sure to check it out here!!

Lips

Last but certainly not least, my favorite lip product! It’s hard to pick a top lip shade (the options are endless!!) so I went with my must-have gloss by Bobbi Brown in “Sheer Peach.” Let me tell you, this lip gloss is poppin’! This is the absolute perfect color to layer on top of other lip products and adds a stunning, long lasting sparkle.
