That Blue Dress

Happy Tuesday! How was your weekend? Mine was great! Spent sometime in Wisconsin for a wedding. The weather and scenery were beautiful there, not to mention the lake I got to look at everyday (Pearl Lake). Also, not to be a dream taker, but soon it will change to fall like weather, so I thought I should take advantage of the unseasonably warm temperatures and wear above the knee dresses with bare legs. 

I paired this navy dress with nude heels and accessorized with a bright beaded belt. I finish the outfit with this gorgeous clutch/ cross body, gold jewelry and topped it off with a bold orange lip (basically saying I am ready for fall). I think this outfit is perfect for a wedding, going out with the girls or a business meeting. I consider it comfortable, yet stylish. 

Also,

The Color of Fall

What is your favorite fall color? Mine is this mustard yellow color. It reminds me of the changing of the leaves. So when I saw this cape inspired dress from Shop Nic and Kat I knew I had to have it. How amazing is it? I love the fact that it has a cape and that you can put your arms through it for a whole new look, so it is almost like getting two looks with one outfit. This dress is great for a fall wedding. You will definitely make a statement with it. I paired it with gold jewelry, a snake skin cross body to give it some texture and a pair of dark teal heels. As the temperatures get cooler you can wear it with a pair of booties and even a knee boot,

End of Summer

Summer days are ending and fall will be among us sooner than we know. So what will you wear to transition between the hot and cold weather?

You don’t have to put away all your summer attire. How I like to transition is by layering. Take one of your favorite summer dresses, like I did here and add a denim jacket. This is great for cold mornings and warm afternoons. Cardigans, blazers, and jean jackets are idea for transitioning weather. Another  item for those days where temperatures fluctuate at a very high range of degrees are peep-toe shoes. You aren’t completely giving up the open toes yet. Peep-toes come in flats, heels and booties and work well for those in-between days.

Makeup Monday: Skyn Lounge

                     

This Makeup Monday is rather different then ones I have done before. Today I am talking about dermaplaning, which is a new way to exfoliate! Dermaplane is a treatment that uses a blade to remove hair/peach fuzz, as well as minimize scaring and improve overall texture and tone of the skin. You will immediate experience brightening of the skin and smoothness once finished. 
Last week I had the opportunity to visit Skyn Lounge Clinical Day Spa and receive dermaplaining. When I say my skin feels amazing, I mean it! My makeup goes on easier, unwanted hairs have been removed, and my skin is healthier and rejuvenated. This treatment takes 45 minutes and last 4-6 weeks. The investment is $95, but if you pair it with any other skincare treatment you can add dermaplaning for just $35 (now that is a deal!). If you are in the Louisville KY area I definitely suggest visiting the Skyn Lounge. They offer many services such as, facials, chemical peels, waxing, massage and makeup application. 
After the dermaplane treatment I had the opportunity to get my makeup done. Skyn Lounge offers brow and lash tinting, makeup lessons, and special occasion makeup. You can book them for any event and function that you have in your life. 
I would definitely recommend Skyn Lounge for all your skincare needs. Esspically since Fall is around the corner, everyone’s skin can use a little TLC.

Happy Saturday! I love and hate this time of year because you never know how to dress. It is cold one minute and hot the next, but I am not ready to let go of summer yet. So I am still somewhat dressing for the occasion. This look was for a casual night with the girls. Wide leg jeans are comfortable and a must to keep in your closet. I paired them with a loose fitting tank and accessorized with the cutest clutch (which you can find here). I also added a collection of my favorite necklaces (here and here), then finished the outfit with sandals and a pair of hoops.

Makeup Monday: Unboxing with No7 Beauty

                       Shop: Lip Gloss (one, two) | Primer | Serum | Mascara | Eyeshadow | YouTube 

Happy Makeup Monday! Today I am partnering with No7 beauty to bring you Fall skincare and Fall makeup colors in their new collection.

No7’s Youthful Vitamin C Fresh Radiance Essence will give you brighter, healthier, and more radiant skin within two weeks. Who doesn’t want more Youthful skin? As we age our skin loses its radiant glow. The more stress we have in our life the more dull and dry our skin seems to be, so we need to combat this with Vitamin C. I think No7 Beauty has perfected that in this product and your skin will definitely show the difference.

A beauty tip I live by is that I always make sure I use a primer before I apply makeup to my skin. This adds the perfect base between your skin and your makeup, which allows it to adhere to your skin and last all day. It leaves your makeup looking flawless and healthier.

No7 Beauty has some awesome makeup products for Fall. Their Lash Impact Ultra gives you the volume of false lashes without the false lashes. I think that is something we can all get behind. Also No7’s High Shine Lip Gloss looks great by itself or over your favorite lipstick, which can give your lips the extra shine it needs. I personally love their Trio Eyeshadow Palettes because it is all you need to make your eyes look dramatic and great for travel too.

Fall Fashion Staples

Although many of us are not ready for Fall, it is around the corner! I can feel the chill in the air today! So I have rounded up some Fall staples that I think you need in your closet. A pair or two of skinny jeans should always be on deck for many occasions, here are two of my favorites (one, two). Booties are all the rage for Fall and what I am most excited about. I am definitely adding these to my collection and this pair is great too. If you are a heel girl, this pair has always been a staple in my book.

As the temperatures get cooler many love to add a wool hat. Let me suggest this one which comes in heather oat and charcoal gray. You are also going to need a scarf. These two (here and here) from the India Hicks Fall Curated Collection are stunners and will be conversation pieces. Use them to add a pop of color to an otherwise boring outfit.

Every girl needs three bags! Yes I said three. A crossbody for everyday causal to go with jeans, leggings and sweaters. The work tote to carry your laptop, planner, and files. And the going out clutch for date night and social events. See you need three!  You always need jewelry to dress up your outfit. A statement necklace is key. This one is a favorite. Every girl should have a pair of hoops. I like these because they can be worn day or night and they are the perfect length. I personally am a bracelet girl, so I love to have some arm candy. I am adding this cuff to list of purchases and I love this bangle as well.

What is Fall without adding a little leopard?? As I always say leopard is a neutral. I am loving this blouse, this scarf to jazz up a solid color outfit, and these heels. What are some of the things you consider staples in your closet? Shop some of mine below.
