Top Five Makeup Tools You Should Have in Your Makeup Bag

Guest post by Hillary Kline As a self-proclaimed makeup junkie, I have to say, I’ve got a ton of beauty products. You need something to store those products in, right? So, you guessed it, I have multiple makeup bags. All shapes, all sizes, all patterns and colors, but what really counts is what is in those bags. You might be wondering what are the top things that I should have in my makeup bag? It wasn’t easy, but I narrowed… Read more »

Unique Vintage 1950s Style Light Blue & White Gingham Alexis Short Sleeve Swing Dress

Dress c/o* | Sandals | Sunglasses (similar) Boy oh boy was I fortunate last week! While it was snowing and cold in Wisconsin, I was in Myrtle Beach with my family. While it wasn’t beach weather the entire time we were there, we did still get to soak up some sun for a couple days. (There are a couple bonus photos at the end of the post of my nephew’s first time playing in the ocean!) This gingham dress was… Read more »

Unique Vintage wedding

I’ve been blabbering for awhile now about all the weddings I have coming up this summer. I’m SO excited I actually have some weddings to go to and will actually be able to attend as well! I love weddings, and I really love picking out dresses for them, haha. The perfect wedding guest dress for me will be girly with some whimsical touches, but not too over-the-top, as all eyes should be on the bride (and not the wedding guest’s… Read more »

Evatrends smock formal comfortable dress

Dress c/o* use LP15 for 15% off | Heels | Belt | Necklace (similar) | Earrings c/o* | Lipstick Comfortable and formal are two words that don’t usually go together when you’re talking about clothing. However, I’ve found a dress that fits the bill for both! And with the plethora of weddings, wedding showers, engagement parties, work parties and what not I have this summer…some comfy yet formal clothing was a top priority. This dress was a new venture for… Read more »

*There’s a fun travel-related giveaway with GPSmyCity at the end of this post! Don’t forget to enter! My trip to the Amazon in Peru is one of the first trips of my life that I felt I had actually packed well enough for that I could pass on my packing tips to my readers.

Easter outfit

Dress c/o* | Heels c/o* (Similar here) | Necklace (Similar here) | Bunny Ears | Carrot An upcoming holiday is a perfect excuse to break out a cute dress and a costume for Bosco! Haha. Bosco is my mom’s pooch and a reoccurring model of mine for holidays. (See my favorite post with Bosco here.)

I’m finally back to blogging as usual, and thank you, again, to all of my lovely guest posters for picking up the slack while I was moving/traveling.

mascara

Guest post by Emily Jannotta I love makeup. I have an extreme stash of pallets, foundation, blush, etc. You name it, I probably have it! I love all makeup, but my favorite part of makeup is mascara. There’s something about making lashes go from boring to bold that I love. I usually use two mascaras at once, because I don’t like to have subtle lashes. I like them to be black and bold. Long and volumized! Now I know not… Read more »

Meet Monica! She’s this month’s Featured Fashionista and a one-of-a-kind beauty blogger. Monica is especially talented at creating nail designs (you’ll see what I mean in a moment), but what really sets her apart is that many of her posts feature nail designs that are Rheumatoid Arthritis friendly! That’s pretty awesome in my opinion. Are you not sure what RA is or what an RA-friendly design would be? Monica is answering all of those questions in her Q&A below. Plus,… Read more »

What to Wear When It’s Insanely Hot & Humid (Other Than a Dress)

Pants (similar) | Shirt (similar) | Sandals | Sunglasses | Necklace (similar) | Watch c/o* What to wear when it’s insanely hot & humid…or what to wear when you’re living in a treehouse in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest. Haha. This was my one and only “fancy” outfit I brought along for our treehouse adventure. The rest of the time I was wearing hiking clothes and boots! (My roll-up hiking pants are the comfiest things ever.) Usually, when it’s… Read more »

Floral midi skirt + cropped cardigan for spring

Skirt (similar here & here) | Cardigan (similar here) | Wedges | Bracelet | Necklace I can’t help thinking of that darn Devil Wears Prada quote every time I see florals in spring or even summer. So, I present to you a spring-time outfit that would make Miranda Priestly roll her eyes. Haha. Despite their, perhaps, overuse in the spring and summer months. Floral prints are still my favorite of all the prints to don. And they can most certainly… Read more »

So, I decided to put some Rosario-based… Read more »

heart dress

As I mentioned in my last post, Valentine’s Day is not usually a day I go too crazy over. I own basically nothing Valentines Day-themed. But…even though my husband and I aren’t big celebrators of this day, I do REALLY like all the red, pink and heart-themed clothing that exists for this day. So, this got me thinking…maybe I should just take a look around at what some of my favorite stores are featuring for this holiday. And my goodness!… Read more »

Subtle Valentine's Day look

Skirt | Top (Similar here & here) | Wedges | Camera Bag | Sunglasses | Cami | Lipstick Goodness, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! This is one of those holidays that I don’t go too crazy over. My general philosophy is if I’m wearing some red… I’m good to go! My wardrobe (unfortunately) doesn’t have any Valentine’s Day-themed clothing in it (yet). So, I usually put on red lipstick and earrings and this shirt. BAM. Valentine’s Day ready!… Read more »

black dress

Ah, wishlist posts. It’s been quite some time since I put one of these together! They, as always, can be a bit dangerous to make…as I tend to start buying these things rather than just wishing for them. Haha. (Does anyone else have that problem?) However, when the folks from David Nieper reached out to me about this wishlist post, I couldn’t resist! David “creates collections of the utmost softness, femininity and luxury.” And I am loving his scarves, beautiful… Read more »

I did not recently take up smoking, haha. That’s just my breath! When we were in Wisconsin for the holidays it was unreasonably cold. The day we took these photos was one of the “warm” days coming in at about 7 degrees Fahrenheit for a high without the windchill. Brrrrr…. Read more »

Unique_Vintage_1950s_Style_Red_Button_Up_Sleeved_Hedren_Coatdress

Nothing makes me happier than a fabulous, fit and flare dress…especially a fit and flare dress with pockets! And these dresses are flattering on many body types (especially those of us who are on the curvier end of the spectrum). The best part too is that I’m apparently not the only one who loves fit and flare dresses, as there is no shortage of cute ones to choose from on the comfort of my couch! So, I put together a… Read more »

PopJulia Yellow Coat

Click to Shop: Coat c/o* | Boots | Jeans (similar) | Beret c/o* | Scarf (similar) | Bag The weather for my trip to Wisconsin was less than amazing, shall we say. Most days were below zero degrees Fahrenheit! So, there was no way I was shooting any outfit posts unless they were featuring a coat, haha. I loved that this coat was bright and cheery in the gloomy, cold weather. Although, my photos do make this coat look brighter… Read more »

Metallic skirt for Christmas

Click to shop: There really isn’t a better part of the year to break out your metallic skirts. It’s the perfect time for a little shimmer and shine! But once again, it’s important to stay warm! (See how I styled this skirt for summer, here.) Cropped cardigans are seriously a lifesaver in these situations. I’m also wearing a pair of fleece lined tights under this skirt. This, plus my knee-high boots, means I am toasty warm! I could’ve even upped… Read more »
