Happy Makeup Monday! If you have been following along for awhile you know that Pixi Beauty is one of my favorites when it comes to makeup and skincare. Reasons being they work a lot with influencers on collaborations (so they value their input), all of their products are very affordable, as well as they have a wide range of items to choose from (so your are guaranteed to find something you like). With that said I ant to share with you my favorites from the Mud Glow Cleanser to the influencer collaborations. Check out my YouTube video here detailing many of those products as well as why I love them.

Who Is Ready for Derby??

Shop: Dress | Fascinator (One, Two, Three) | Clutch | Shoes | Necklace 

Are you ready for Derby? I’m ready! I have my dress and my fascinator all laid out. What are you wearing? We are a week out from one of the most popular horse races in the US, the Kentucky Derby. It is a tradition if you go to the Derby to wear a hat or a fascinator. I am not a huge hat person, but fascinators are right up my alley. To the point that I am wearing one for my wedding. Fascinators are pretty much all the rage right now and a great alternative to wearing a hat. I think they are great to show your personality or to add a pop of color to your outfit. I have linked many affordable fascinators here and below.

Now on to the dress! What do you wear to the Kentucky Derby? A fancy dress of course. When I get a chance to get all dolled up, I always take it. Going to Churchill Downs on this special day is one of those chances. The Derby is basically a fashion show. The higher the heels and the bigger the hat the better. I bought this dress a couple months ago on sale from Draper James and saved it for this specific event. Isn’t it perfect? (find a similar dress here).

This week heading into the Kentucky Derby there are many fun activities that us locals and out of towners can get involved in, such as Beer Fest, Wine Fest, Boat Race, Pegasus Parade, Chow Wagon and multiple others you can find here.

Happy Derby Week!

Home is the Key: Chico’s Basic Essential Slub Tee

My last blog post explain what the Home is the Key Campaign is all about (read that post here). It is a wonderful campaign with an amazing cause that works towards combating the affordable housing crisis here in the US. I have chosen to collaborating with them by showing off my style in this Chico’s Basic Essential Slub Tee. Chico’s and Chico’s FAS brand stores have partnered with Habitat for Humanity by allow their customers to donate in store and online to help with this cause. Each Chico’s FAS brand stores (White House Black MarketChico’s, and Soma Intimates) have chosen a product to donate all proceeds when purchased to Habitat from April 23-May 31. For Chico’s that item is their Basic Essential Slub Tee, which I am wearing in this post. It is truly the perfect tee because of its high low design that allows it to be longer in the back and shorter in the front, which is great for leggings or that half tucked look. The shirt is super comfortable and works well with jeans, liked I paired it here. I added some cute accessories, such as my legacy belt, beaded earrings and a clutch that showcases one of my favorite fruits, pineapple (which means hospitality and friendship). Style yours anyway you like, considering the tee can go with almost anything.

There are many ways to get involved with Home is the Key. Check out their website (here) for more information.

Home is the Key: White House Black Market Ankle Pant

What is Home is Key? It is Habitat for Humanity’s national campaign to help address the nation’s rising affordable housing problem. Did you know that one in four households in the US pays more then 30% of their income for housing, leaving it very difficult to afford other basic necessities? Having affordable housing allows families to have more resources and live healthier safer lives.  Home is Key wants to unlock the future for many families this April by educating and partnering with people that want to help spread their message. So why not do your part?

There are many ways to get involved in this project, but one I want to specifically focus on in this post deals with shopping, of course! Chico’s FAS, the parent company of White House Black Market (WHBM), Chico’s, and Soma Intimates is supporting this campaign by allowing their customers to donate in each of their stores or online. Also the company has picked specific items from the stores that all the proceeds from that item will be donated to Home is Key during a set time. From April 23-May 31st WHBM proceeds from every Comfort Stretch Ankle Pant sold will go to support Habitat. These pants are super comfy, have great stretch (lets face it ladies we love a pant that has a little give), and the fit is excellent (true to size). I only have one pair, but I am thinking I need to invest in another, especially since it can help a family have a safe living environment and also because they look great with my cactus shirt! 🙂

So join me and get involved by visiting Habitat.org/key and make a donation in any amount. Home is the Key runs through April 30. Every little bit helps!

Happy Friday! It is actually feeling like Spring today for the first time, and I couldn’t be more excited! What about you? I am so over the cold and snowy weather. Now that it has warmed up, what do you wear? Well for me its leggings of course. I love the faux leather ones, which are great for Spring, considering that in the morning and evening the temperature maybe a littler more chillier. I styled the leggings with a black tank, which is perfect for that afternoon warmer temps. I paired the outfit with a tan moto jacket to give it a little color. Added a couple of accessories and wedges and I was good to go. What are you wearing today??

Not Yet Spring

Shop: Jacket | Leggings | Blouse | Purse | Shoes 

What is this weather doing? One day snow and freezing, the next day it feels like summer. When this happens it is hard to know how to dress. My suggestions is layers upon layers, it is the only way to get through the day. This transitional weather is just right for a thin leather jacket (which I like to call my going out jacket), paired with the right outfit its perfect. These faux leather leggings are my favorite and have been on heavy rotation during these colder weather days. With this layered look, I added a lot of textures, solids and patterns to the mix. When I pattern mix I like to stick to the same color or colors that compliment each other so it looks like a cohesive outfit. All in all this outfit is great to take from day to night. Whats your favorite all day outfit? Shop mine below.

Happy Makeup Monday with Pixi Beauty and Wylie. I am a eyeshadow girl. I play around with colors depending on the season. This PixiXWeylie eyeshadow palette is perfect. There are bold and nude colors that I am sure you will love. I used colors Gurl!, Potato, and Beautis in this look.  The eyeliner is amazing for doing the winged look, if you are into that. Shop this palette and eyeliner below, as well as check at my Youtube review here.
