Summer, Summer, Summertime

Happy Saturday and Happy Memorial Day Weekend. Who is already for it to officially be summer? Not that it doesn’t already feel like it. In the summer wearing dresses is my thing because they are so simple and easy, especially when it is extremely hot and humid outside. I am a fan of dresses that are airy and light, like this one dress in the post. It is super comfy and great for many occasions, such as work, date night and a get together with friends. I mean it is even appropriate to wear to church, it’s that versatile. Another reason I love this dress is because of the colors, pastels and neutrals. My summer accessories are a simple necklace, some hoops and sunglasses are a must. What is your favorite thing to wear this summer?

Summer is around the corner! So what’s in your shoe closet? As you know shoes can make or break your outfit. With that said I am a fan of a statement shoe that can be worn for many years to come, as well as be used to accent multiple outfit choices. This is why I am rounded up some of my favorite shoes of the summer. Shoes from heels to mules to espadrilles, and many more. Everyone needs a couple of these in their closet. Check out my summer picks below. What shoes are you wearing this summer?

Hi All! I have totally been a slacker! I need some motivation to get my life together and get in shape. I have around 125 days till the big day so I need to get it in gear. What workouts are you all doing? I am looking for something that will get me toned, meaning it incorporates weights. I am good at the cardio part of working out but I am not sure of a good weight routine. Definitely open for suggestions. What has worked for you? September will be here before I know it!
One thing that is always motivating to me is athletic wear or athleisure. Having the perfect outfit while getting your excise on is a must! So I have picked out some of my favorites and linked them below. What are you wearing while working out?

This item is a must to keep your ring protected from damage when you are out and about at the nail salon, gym or doing anything that could be destructive to your engagement ring or wedding band. RingHero is you BFF for all of these occasions. It is a wristlet that keeps your rings safe and secure in a zipped pocket. RingHero protects your sparkly pieces from theft and damage, while you have the freedom to get in your workout or have a manicure. I will be using it while working out getting in shape for my wedding. How would you use it?

Once you get engaged having your nails always polished is a must because everybody wants to look at that ring right? Zoya is the best nail polish because it is free of parabens, lead, formaldehyde, and many of those other nasty things you don’t want in or on your body. So Zoya is a healthier choice and last days without chipping; what more do you need? In this trio the colors are Jordan, Leia (which is my favorite), and Abby. I will definitely being wearing these all summer, especially to my bachelorette party and bridal shower.

If you are looking for something sparkly for your wedding day I have found the perfect pair. These Charles & Colvard Moissanite Three Prong Martini Studs will do the trick. The round Forever One moissanite earrings are delicate and will go great with almost any attire. They are 14K white gold, and have the diamond equivalent weight of 1.00ctw. Moissanite is one of the rarest minerals found in nature. Charles & Colvard have been creating moissanite for over two decades and I think they have perfected it in these near-colorless studs. The best thing about these is that they are offered at a fraction of the cost of comparable gemstones. They are gorgeous and definitely do not disappoint. I will be wearing these to my bridal shower and rehearsal dinner.

Bali Lace ‘N Smooth Body Briefer 
You have the perfect dress, now you need the undergarments. This Bali Lace N’ Smooth Body Briefer is just the thing for brides. It is a super soft lace that is breathable, but yet still provides as much control as needed. This body briefer shapes you in the right places and does not bulge. It has underwire cups that hold you in and allow support on your special day. Full coverage with hook and eye closures, which is exactly what I am looking for. The best part is that it is comfortable and you can wear it all day during your wedding.

Happy Makeup Monday! Can you guys believe I have never tried Urban Decay Cosmetics? Me either! Have you tried them? Especially their 24/7 eyeliner? If you don’t try anything else you have to try that, it is amazing and glades on with ease. Comes in multiple colors and last all day.  In this Makeup I am also trying an eyeshadow palette with six shades and a setting spray that will make your makeup last all day.

Skirt with Panels

Who doesn’t love a skirt with different panels or mix match fabric? This piece is a true winner in my book. It incorporates different textures and patterns to pull off a unique look. This color and texture block A-line has pops of color, polychrome faux suede, and tweed to create a different look to an otherwise boring alternative. The skirt is just fun! Especially paired with this ruffled off the should top. The movement of the skirt as well as the top make the outfit perfect for dancing (makes me want to learn how to salsa :). It is also equally good for date night, a fashion show, or a bachelorette party. Add some accessories and you are off! Honestly one of my favorite outfits I have shot to date. What are your thoughts?

Makeup Monday: Grande Lips

Perfect lipstick is an understatement. These four Grande Cosmetic’s Hydraplump Liquid Lipsticks were sent to me months ago and I just now tried them. I am so mad at myself because I absolutely love them and could have been wearing them for months. Ugh, typical! Anyway, you need try these. And here is why: lip plumper, very pigmented, long lasting, and moisturizing. Find out even more about these liquid lipsticks that will make you want to run out and buy them, from my YouTube review (here) or below. You can thank me later!

Blush Tones and Trouser Jeans

Blush tones are some of my favorite colors, especially in a cute top like the one I have on in this post. I have been told by many blush is my color! So…with that said I am only wearing blush from now on! (Just joking!) I paired this off the shoulder blouse with light wash denim trousers from RoxyNell. This brand of jeans is made from high quality denim and are custom to fit your body. Who doesn’t want the perfect pair of fitted jeans?? Accessories are a must to finish an outfit. Here I chose tassel earring with beading, a link bracelet, and a super fancy purse (which is by far one of my favorites). This outfit is perfect for date night or a girls night out this spring and summer.

What favorites are you pulling out of your closet this summer for date night? Shop my picks below.
