Black Playsuit

Xteeener - Romper OOTD - 01

Hi all :) I’m typing this up as I pack for my trip to LA tomorrow and I think this black playsuit is an ideal type of clothing item to travel with. It’s easy to dress up or down, you could pair a skirt over it for an additional look, and if you get something spilt on you it won’t be obvious haha ^^ I seriously love fuss free clothing. I also love golden hour; it’s freakin’ magical.

Xteeener - OOTD -  05

I am often won over by separates because of it’s practicality in it’s capability of being mixed and matched. Does anyone else find it gratifying to wear certain items in your closet over and over again just because it’s so easy? Striped tops would definitely fall under this category. When I bought this textured striped top and pale blue skirt I had envisioned pairing them separately with either a print or something that would bring higher contrast to the overall look. The versatility of the two pieces inspired me to start by pairing them together and keeping it clean and simple.

Tropical Fever

Hi everyone! Can you believe it’s August already?? I always love this time of year because it is so full of energy as everyone gears up for the new season. Is anyone else craving a summer get away like I am? This Tropical Floral dress definitely reads vacation in the print but I love the elegant cut of it. Summer is still here so I decided to inject even more color into the look!

Are you guys preparing yourself for Fall yet whether mentally or in terms of your wardrobe? Or are we not letting Summer escape us anytime soon? :) I’ve started buying some transitioning and early Fall pieces in this haul video! Check it out:

How to Hide Your Undergarments!

Commando Mini Cami Slip, True Nude, Small/Medium

Do you have pieces in your closet that go unworn because it’s too see-through or because you wouldn’t dare expose your bra or panty line? This is a topic that isn’t too often covered and I was truly inspired because I too face many of these issues all the time!

There are so many ways we can conceal our undergarments so I felt it was best to demonstrate in a video. I tried to pack in as much information as I possibly could so I hope you enjoy!

You may notice that my blog has received a bit of a facelift :) Do check out the mobile version as well and let me know what you think!

Meltproof Makeup Look & Tips

Having oily skin has its pros and cons. What about when paired with wearing makeup in the scorching heat? I know, I know..con to the max. Don’t fret guys, shine and sweat are completely normal. Even actors and actresses have to get blotted very frequently on set because they’re human too. We can, however, take certain steps to keep our look from melting off of our faces faster!

In this video you will also see me use the It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Vol. 1 Matte Luxe Transforming Eye Shadow Palette (talk about a mouthful!) on my eyes. I have been wearing this palette almost everyday as of late!

 

 Check out the video and information section for tips and a full list of products that I recommend to help you combat the heat!

Lace Maxi Skirt and a Straw Hat

embroidered lace maxi skirt

Hey everyone! I’m back with an outfit post; let’s pretend it only feels like it has been ages  😀 This embroidered lace maxi skirt, which was an awesome find at Marshalls, has been sitting in my closet waiting to be styled. I have never received so many compliments–everyone of different ages loved the skirt!

gold nastygal necklace

If you’ve watched my Summer Fashion Haul this Nasty Gal necklace should look familiar :) I recently found this Chambray-like thin short sleeve top that though casual, I felt had that right amount of substance to pair well with the skirt. Normally I have little luck locating Marshalls or TJ Maxx finds online but whenever I can will most certainly link it for you guys!

TIP! If you aren’t already shopping in the Women’s section of discount stores (or really any store in general), you should! The clothing in those aisles tend to be of better quality than that of what you would find in the Junior’s section for example. It’s where I found this top at Marshalls :)

panama hat

I’m a lover of all kinds of hats but this Panama straw hat is perfect in this humidity and really needed some more lovin’ as well.  I’m also currently loving my Fjord watch that was gifted to me. Hopefully they will have shopping available on their site soon as i’m really liking the aesthetic of their pieces!

This Cole Haan crossbody bag is a TJ Maxx find and the shoes I scored from Marshalls. You would think I was sponsored by them! Haha but I honestly have loved shopping at these stores since I was a kid (you can thank my Mom).

Let me know what you think of the outfit! As always thanks for dropping by and I hope you all have a great weekend!
