Fall Beauty Picks

Friday, August 22, 2014

Last month I partnered with HEB to show you some of my favorite Summer Beauty Picks (click here) and this month its time to start turning our heads to fall. With smoky eyes or dark lips (not both at the same time please) – HEB’s beauty department is at-hand to help you transition from season to season.

Your hair goes through quite a bit of trauma during the summer. Chlorine in pools, the harsh water at the beach and even just the sun take toll on hair. Use Not Your Mother’s Way To Grow Leave-In Conditioner to give your hair some tender loving care!

I love a good smoky eyes. These two palettes pair together to create a beautiful effect.

I’ve been using lip stains a lot lately. It goes on like a gloss but then leaves a nice color on your lip all day.

I want to also highlight this primer. I recently learned about primers and now start every application with my primer. Try it and you’ll never go without one again!

The Midi Skirt

Thursday, August 21, 2014

Elegant and feminine, the midi skirt has made a big play this summer. I was only too happy to jump on board this trend and have a midi skirt outfit post coming for you soon. In the meantime, I wanted to show you some of my favorite midi skirts from other bloggers who did it right. They are giving me some serious wardrobe envy!

midi skirt

A midi skirt is a skirt that lies between the knee and ankle and was very prominent in the 1950′s. This trend is looking to carry on in to Fall 2014 so you still have time to grab some off the racks. This trend is very accessible and easy to wear. The biggest rule is if you are wearing a voluminous midi skirt – don’t go big on top.


Labelle Mel gives a little nod to the French by pairing a bright red midi skirt with this adorable Bonjour sweater and leopard heels. I’ve actually seen tons of bloggers featuring this Bonjour sweater lately! It’s out of stock right now but I found a similar one for you (HERE).

This is probably my favorite look and no surprise because Blaire Eadie from Atlantic Pacific is one of my favorite fashion bloggers. This midi print is to die for! She paired it with a crop top and tied on a denim jacket for a little something extra.

Lace and Locks styled her white midi to perfection with this chic houndstooth blazer.

Dallas Wardrobe’s blue and white floral midi is dainty and exquisite and worn with just a simple white tank.

Fashion blogger extraordinaire, Mary Seng, from Happily Grey is always leading trends. I’m so bummed they didn’t have this check print skirt in my size!

Blaire Eadie from Atlantic Pacific does it again. Her sense of style is impeccable as she goes red all over!

Boyfriend Jeans

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Seriously one of the most comfortable things on Earth – boyfriend jeans have been the hottest thing in denim for a while now.  It’s definitely a nod back to the 90′s but it’s how you style them that brings them in to 2014. Pair with some open-toed booties or even heels. Make sure you don’t go to big or oversized on top or you might end up looking shlumpy. I pair mine with a fitted tank or even a light linen button up.

I have very light blue eyes so they are SUPER sensitive to light. I can’t even drive a car in the daylight without my sunnies. As I’ve gotten older I’ve come to really appreciate the fashion statement that sunglasses can actually make. I mean think about it, when you are talking to someone they will almost always look at your eyes. So sTORIbook readers, its time to invest in some sunnies! I encourage you to take risks and experiment with shapes, colors and materials. Try lots of them on! You’ll never know what you might like! Here are a few that I’m crushing on…
